Article "Frosh to Hold Indian Trial At Cheer Rally"

Description

The article discusses the outstanding rally of the year presented at the stadium in celebration of the traditional rivalry between University of Richmond and William and Mary. Demonstrated in the Thanksgiving Day gridiron classic, widely-known speakers will delve into traditional football history and spur Richmond toward a victory. Most notably though, the article details "important feature of the program" will be the mock trial of the Indian chieftain, "Legrandeshadebryant-stewart-spack-bridgers." '"If found guilty by vote of the jury, the accused will be hanged, and then hoisted above the huge bonfire structure in the flames of which he will be consumed."
