What do you think of it? Up in the grand stand there was a waving of blue flags and white handkerchiefs, telling that there were not a few of the fair spectators who sympathized with the boys from New Haven. The road to the lake was lined with people. Barely were they in bed before there was a knock on the door, and they found Robinson and one of the fellows who lived in the house were there. Of the detectives, only Nick Carter was holding fast. Two men were out, and still there was a man on first. A thing like that should not create feeling between us. Frank was thinking these things over, when Harry came in with a rush, slamming the door and tripping over a rug in his haste.
Then, with the first ball delivered to the next man up, the fellow on first struck out for second. Frank Merriwell at Yale Part 1 summary You're reading Frank Merriwell at Yale. Is it possible you have let up cramming long enough to make a call? Heffiner is the only man we have, and he can't do all the work. Now, if you will look out for yourself and keep yourself in condition, it is quite possible that you may be given a trial on the regular ball team in the spring. He might be the one who has talked too much. He was rooting with the New Haven gang. He fancied he was making himself solid with Browning's crowd.
No wonder Frank Merriwell tingled with excitement in every part of his body; but it was a wonder that he appeared so cool and self contained. He now proceeded to wring the handkerchief in a highly dramatic manner. Frank had proven that it was not necessary for a man to drink at Yale in order to be esteemed as a good fellow. It's been here too many times already. Whatever biological urge Frank may have possessed in that pre-Freudian era, it seems in retrospect to an old reader that he played the two girls one against the other pretty expertly for most of eighteen years. Putnam decided to try it on, and he signaled for it. Yale had whitewashed Harvard for the first time in that game.
Harry slipped up behind the screen, stood on a chair, and peered over. He could hear Rattleton and Robinson whooping wildly, but he knew no time was to be lost in getting away, so he caugh up the gobbler and ran. The students were shouting, singing and blowing horns. So relive a time when hard work was a prerequisite for success. This amount includes applicable customs duties, taxes, brokerage and other fees. Gordon was opening champagne, and both fellows were pretty well intoxicated. He tried a drop that almost hit the plate, but Frank did not bite.
Barely were they in bed before there was a knock on the door, and they found Robinson and one of the fellows who lived in the house were there. That's just who it was. In doing so he settled a point in my mind. A pan and necessary dishes had been borrowed of Mrs. Merriwell showed how near he came to getting shot, and it was universally agreed that he was remarkably lucky. I am too well known to the Harvard gang.
He didn't mind that, for he kept right on cheering. How those fellows jollied Merriwell because he would not even taste the beer. Still I was to blame for lettin' you get me full and pump me. Suddenly Coulter delivered, and the batter obeyed Old Put and did not offer, although it was right over the heart of the plate. If he's on the watch we can't get anywhere near those sheds without being seen.
He was so lively on his feet that he could go back ahead of the baseman every time, and Coulter gave up trying to catch him after two attempts. Get him onto first some way. He was too surprised to speak for some minutes. He felt himself quivering with anger. At noon as he was crossing the campus he was astonished to see Paul Pierson, a junior and the manager of the regular ball team, stop and bow. Pierson was surprised by the freshman's manner, for he had expected Frank to show excitement and delight.
Well, that gives me cramps! Rattleton does not smoke at all. Frank turned to Walter, who did not seem to know what to do. The blue-blooded aristocrat had appeared at Yale, and he had chosen his circle of acquaintances with great care. Frank remembered that the fellow who chased him the night before had promised to see him again, but he had thought at the time that the man did not mean it. The Virginian was pale and he trembled with anger. They gave one great roar of delight, and then came the college yell, followed by the freshman cheer.
It was a most exciting game. You're a great talker when you're loaded. Tell him to work the dodge this time if he can. It sped through the air and struck the man fairly between the shoulders. Enjoy Then it came out that Bruce was in training, and it was said that he was putting himself in condition to give Merriwell the worst licking of his life. They could hear the cheering as the other races took place, and at last it came their turn. But there was many a heartache for readers along the way.
Here, here--that hand goes on the other glove--I mean that glove goes on the other hand. Patten was born October 25, 1866 in Corinna, Maine. Then came positive proof of Merriwell's popularity, for the New Haven spectators arose as one man, wildly waving hats and flags, and gave three cheers and a tiger for Frank. Merriwell rubbed dirt all over you. Then it was seen that Peck, Harvard's change pitcher, was warming up, and it became evident that the captain had decided to put him into the box. He'll never make a pitcher in his life. Then, when I was sure Harry was all right, I legged it.
