Another Old Tradition Shattered;
Vol-CKeg Is Vinegar Barrel!




Purdue's Bucket; Michigan's
Jug Eclipsed By
UK's Barrel

Five Formations Will Include
"Hello," "Rose Bowl Vols,"
"Mv Old Ky. Home"

Michigan and Minnesota have
their little brown jug.
Indiana and Purdue have their
old oaken bucket.
Kentucky and Tennessee have
their beer keg presumably, but it
is not a beer keg at all. it is a vinegar barrel.
This is not an attempt to shatter
another tradition, but only an assertion as to what this bulging, cylindrical-shaped
container, emblematic of one of the nation's keenest
gridiron rivalries, originally was.
Back in 1925. a group of rabid
Kentucky alumni, better known as
the "Raspberry Patch," conceived
a plan to stimulate the
rivalry to greater heights by
using something material to denote
supremacy between the two. After

due deliberation, these worthy individuals decided to pay homage to
Kentucky's weakness
a beer keg
would be the very thing.
But where to get the keg? Kentucky at that time was in the throes
of the prohibition era, and no keg
was available.
"Patch" imported a vinegar barrel
from Cincinnati. Naturally it was
necessary to rechristen his ligneous
majesty. Yet would it be wise to
lKldly proclaim the new protege,
"Beer Keg?" Not at all. The
league and similar organizations would be horrified. They
would interpret such a proclamation as approval of the return of
light wine and beer.
So the tactful Alumni ashered
the keg onto Stoll Field, that

after being taken for a "ride" by

Bowling sustained a badly smashed

that when he drove up to the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity house
where he resides, two men forced
him back into his car. After driving him about town, the men
parked the automobile, beat him
severely, took three dollars from his
pocket and left. Bowling was unable to furnish police with a description of his two abductors, or
given any reason for the attack.

A Kentucky colonel of our acquaintance once
boasted to a friend that he had on his plantation
an Indian who never forgot anything. The devil
was listening nearby, and he bet the colonel that
he was wrong. The colonel bet his soul that
the Indian wouldn't forget.
So the devil went up to the Indian and said,
"Do you like eggs?"
"Yes," replied the Indian.
The devil went away.
Twenty years elapsed and the devil returned.
Confronting the old Indian he raised his hand
in the customary Indian greeting and said,
