The Return of Herriman Saturday

Friday, September 20 1907 -- The newspaper humorists converged on Venice for a get-together, and Herriman pens a cartoon filled with in-jokes. If they were explained, it was in the accompanying article that didn't make it onto my copy.

Friday, September 20 1907 -- football tryouts open at the University of Southern California, coach Harvey Holmes presiding. Only 35 candidates turned out looking for a spot on the team, of which 21 would be picked for the roster. Candidate Byron "Bull" Stookey was the subject of much comment because of his towering height -- "almost" 6' 5" -- quite the giant in those days.
