More Kudos for Retrospect
As a Haverford College alum, I thoroughly enjoyed Mark Dixon’s “Gridiron Woes” [October 2006]. I’ve heard one rumor about the demise of Haverford football that I could never confirm. I inquired several years ago about what happened to the uniforms, and it was said that they were sold to a women’s football program. But I can’t verify which one.

Dixon’s articles on Rufus Jones [“Talking with Creeps,” September 2006] and Smedley Butler [“Gangster, Racketeer, Marine,” August 2006] filled in some blanks for me with thoughts and history. Having considered my option to become a conscientious objector, I appreciated Jones’ comment about Adm. Arnold E. True. My reasoning was consistent with the admiral’s. I became a conscientious participant by joining the U.S. Navy and serving as an officer in the Destroyer Force, Atlantic Fleet and then at the Pentagon in the office of the Chief of Naval Operations. (No one was shooting at me during my service). My other option was to be drafted into the Army as a private.
