Holliday Heads Football
At a meeting of this year's football captains Al Holliday was elected next year's manager for the Intramural Football program. The
play-off game between KB and Potter was also discussed.
It was decided that if at all possible the game should be played,
but due to many conflicting factors
no date for the game has been decided upon as yet. Rain has caused
the postponement of the game and
darkness and the basketball season
are two of the obstacles to be overcome.

Farmers are not the only ones
to judge potatoes. Students do
it, too. In fact, one of State's
students is quite superior at it.
Lindley DeGarmo '50, came out
first in last year's contest for
prize potato judgers, and fifth
in this year's contest.
He doesn't just judge spuds,
though. He can actually tell you,
just from glancing at the eyes
(of the potato, that is) whether
that particular apple of the
ground is a sharp Long Islander,
or whether it is native Californian.
DeGarmo is connected with
the vegetable department of the

That's where he got his learning.
DeGarmo is now taking part
in a national contest for judging vegetables in Detroit, Michigan. He is on one of two teams
competing in the contest representing New York State.
