Editorial "Wow! We Won!"
Editorial "Wow! We Won!"
The brief article is about the defeat of North Carolina. The article states that seeing this score (Richmond 14- North Carolina 13) is exciting as that means there will be a "scalping of an Injun", which we see mentioned in other articles. The article states the win is attributed to the team’s talent, and fan’s enthusiasm. The article concludes with the phrase, "Lead those Injuns in!", with reference to scalping. However, in the 1940’s North Carolina’s mascot was the Wolf Pack. This indicates some kind of confusion at The Collegian, or perhaps students were using these chants with reference to an upcoming game against William and Mary. This article seems to be reciting chants that fans and Richmond supporters used at the game.
