“Trinity 21, Worcester 0. ‘Tech’ Men Go Down Before Superior Team Work—Trinity Plays Well in First Game”

Mention is made of Hudson, “a big, 200-pound freshman who played full-back,” who “came to Trinity from Shattuck School, in Fairbault, Minnesota, where he played for two years on a championship preparatory school team.”  He “suffered a severe wrench of the left ankle” while dodging two other players, which was “the first accident he has ever sustained from football.”  Tough luck, injured in the first game of the season!

Best Advertisement:  Fatima cigarettes—guys smoking around a trophy.  How many packs did they smoke the day before the game?
