MARSH AND MORRISON,

Captain Tnrz Marsh Is Oldest Vet-
eran With Five Football Letters

livery year a! the conclusion of the
pigskin season some sort of an editorial
tribute is offered up to the retiring
huskies who, through graduation or in-
jury, have served their time well on
the oblong field. The finish oi the
1922 season should be no exception to
I his year's honor list includes .the
names of Captain Howard "Tarz"
Marsh, Madill, end; Captain Van
(■us" lulmondson, Tahlequah, guard-
Clarence "Ran," Morrison, Norman,'
fullback, aijd Ronald "Fat" Cullen, Hen-
ryetta, guard and tackle.
I'irst and foremost of the list comes
«Captain Marsh. As far as can I* de-
termined the unparalleled "Tarz" is the
only man in the history of the universi-
ty who has mad, five football letters,
i'wo of the insignias were garnered in
'lie war years of 1917 and 1918 when
lie was a freshman and the Owen men
were m the Southwestern conference
I lie other three "O's" were won in com-
petition in the Missouri Valley confer-
ence and the termination of the 1920
and 1921 seasons found the husky wing-
man a unanimous choice of the con-
lerence coaches for first all-Valley end.
I'-ven though the Owen men are doom-
ed to finish the present far from the
<"P position, Marsh, through his scintil-
lent performances thruout tile fall, has
an excellent chance of again receiving
1 ')lace °n the mythical eleven. The
p issing of Marsh notes the departure of
one of the greatest ends, if not the
gieatcst, in the history of Soonerland.
After winning three grid letters Van
l'.'lmondson, 210 pound guard, also bids
us adieu to Oklahoma football circles
His play under Owen has been marked
y stcadincss and reliability -rarely I
i -if-hy but always on hand with fight
winch has marked the Red and White
"ams from the founding of the uni-
versity until the present time. The re-
tirement of Kdinondsan will leave a big
in the Oklahoma line whicli Owen
will experience difficulty in adequately
