Brown of Harvard

1
Tom Brown was pre-
 paring for Harvard.

2
"Nancy!"

3
"Don't cry. Mother.
 The boy's not going
 to Yale....he's going
     to Harvard!"

4
"It will be our boy's 
 last dinner with us....
 for a long, long time."

5
"The fellows are giving
 me a little good-bye
 party. You don't
       mind?"

6
CAMBRIDGE...and HARVARD.
   The destination of
   Tom Brown.

Memorial Hall.

Widener Library.

Appleton Gate.

10
Harvard Square.

11
Harvard Station -- --
 the Boston Subway.

12
"I'll bet he thinks Little
 Red Riding Hood is a 
     dirty story."

13
"That's Hal Walters....
 All-American fullback."

14
"You going to Harvard,
         too?"

15
"So'm I!"

16
"I can stand it ....
  if Harvard can!"

17
"Well....my name's Jed 
 Doolittle. What's yours?"

18
"Barney Google!"

19
"Nice of you to meet
 me. How are all the 
       folks?"

20
"Beg pardon .... aren't
 you the Smith sisters?"

21
"We are not! Our name
   is .... White!"

22
"White? My name's
 Brown! Brown and
 White! Let's start a
  taxi cab company!"

23
Tom finally managed
 to get out of the 
subway and arrive at
    Cambridge.

24
"Hey .... youth!"

25
"How do I find this
    dormitory?"

26
"It won't be long now!"

27
"What is the name of
 that last place I left?"

28
"That's The Dickey
    clubhouse."

29
"That's the third house 
 on the second street."

30
"It would be a lovely
 drive over there,
   wouldn't it?"

31
"Your mother certainly
 raised one beautiful 
        child."

32
"You know ... as far as
 I'm concerned Harvard
 is a success right now!"

33
"My name is Brown...I'm
 sort of a freshman here."

34
"My name is Abbott....
 I'm sort of a professor 
          here."

35
"- - and this young
 lady is sort of -- my
      daughter!"

36
"Well...I guess I sort of
    better be going."

37
In the third house on 
  the second street.

38
"I was supposed to room
 with that Doolittle
 shrimp, but after one
 flash at him .... nothing
         doing!"

39
"Well .... Big Boy! Who
        are you?"

40
"My name is MacAndrews!
 There's not room enough
 in here for all this
       baggage."

41
"Well, I'm Tom Brown!
 And this happens to 
    be my trunk!"

42
"What's the matter ....
    got dandruff?"

43
"Sing us a little hymn, 
   will you, Deacon?"

44
"Do you hear me?
 THAT'S MY BED!!"

45
"You'll have to speak
 louder ... I just had
   my ears clipped."

46
"I wouldn't room with
 you, you big sea-lion!
  You bark too loud!"

47
"Now I've got to dig up
 parking space with some
    guy who's human."

48
"My roommate didn't
 show up. Won't you
  come in with me?"

49
"That's The Dickey ....
  the honor society."

50
"Dickey? Those are the
 things that keep soup
 off waiters' chests!"

51
"You'd better not joke
 about The Dickey or
 you'll never be asked
      to join it."

52
"That would be tough
 on my grandchildren,
    wouldn't it?"

53
"Gosh! I bet you were
 a great man at prep 
  school all right."

54
"Great? Say .... I'm the 
 fellow they named the
  Brown Derby after!"

55 [with musical notes]
"Yes, sir ... she's my baby!
 And I don't mean maybe --"

56
"Let's eat! Reg is buying 
      the banquet!"

57
"We're going to the
 Waldorf Lunch. My
 party, Brown.....you're
      invited."

58
"You're on .... if your
 invitation includes my 
        buddy."

59
"Gosh, you're a great 
       fellow!"

60
"That's my Sheik belt."

61
"Whenever a new girl
 falls for me I cut a
    notch in it."

62
"You'd better stay away
 from girls or you'll need
       a new belt."

63
"What's the idea of the 
 horse blanket and the
    foot-mittens?"

64
"I catch cold very easily
   if my feet get wet."

65
"Forget it! Walk on
    your hands!"

66
Freshmen -- --

67
"We've learned enough
 for one day. Let's
 cut and step out this
     afternoon."

68
"Tom, don't you think
 we ought to make
 the most of our
 opportunities? We
 might regret it later if
 we waste them now."

69
"Okay...you've sold your
 sermon, Doo. Me for
   the classroom!"

70
"Gosh, you're a great
       fellow!"

71
"Don't you remember 
        me?"

72
"I'm the fellow who fell
 for you in front of The
    Dickey clubhouse."

73
"Cackle berries!"

74
"I hope you live a couple
 of hundred blocks away."

75
"What would you say
 if I asked you to go 
 to Gwen Pomeroy's 
  dance with me?"

76
"Why don't you ask me 
    and find out?"

77
"My dear Miss Abbott....
 will you accompany me
  to aforesaid dance?"

78
"Thank you - -"

79
"-- -- -- but I have
 already accepted Bob
 MacAndrews' invitation
 to accompany him."

80
"I really think we
 should walk back to
 the store....even if
 you don't need any-
    thing else."

81
"This is where I live."

82
"Now we will have
 to walk back to the 
      eggery!"

83
"The eggs do not matter.
 I really need only the
     jam and milk."

84
"Sorry ... I forgot which
   hand I had that in."

85
"It is quite all right....
 I really don't need the 
      jam either."

86
"Come on .... I know 
 where we can get milk
  in rubber bottles."

87
"If I ever meet you
 again I hope I will
 have been buying golf
       balls."

88
Gwen Pomeroy's dance.

89
"I'm going to be stroke 
 of the freshmen crew
 if hard work will get
    me there, Mary."

90
"I just decided that
 maybe I'm going to
 be stroke of that
       crew."

91
"I didn't know you were
 out for crew, Mr. Brown."

92
"Those are only ukulele 
        bumps!"

93
"May I have this dance?"

94
"This is a better idea
 than dancing, isn't it?"

95
"I should like you to
 take me home please, 
         Bob."

96
"It's pretty much of a
 mucker who kisses
 girls when he has no
  serious intentions."

97
"How do you know
 what my intentions 
       are?"

98
"I suppose you asked
 her to marry you?"

99
"Must a man marry a
 girl just because he
 kisses her...you psalm
  singing long-hair?"

100
"Tell Tom Brown I want
 to see him outside....
  if he's not afraid."

101
"Now I'm going to
 teach you to respect
 women....and psalm
      singers."

102
"Okay, Deacon...I came
 here for an education."

103
"Gosh, Tom...just one
 more wallop and you'd
  have finished him."

104
"He can't fight. You
 had him licked all
      the way."

105
"You know, Doo...I sort
 of think MacAndrews
      was right."

106
"Well...I acted pretty
 rotten toward a very
      fine girl."

107
"Better improve that
 form, MacAndrews, if
 you expect to stroke
       a crew."

108
"Keep it up, Brown!"

109
"Well, I see you came
 down to watch me 
       row."

110
"I came to watch 
    the crew."

111
"You don't seem very
 sorry that I didn't
   make the crew."

112
"But I am sorry, Tom....
  sincerely sorry."

113
"You'd better have the
 doctor look that over
   when you get in."

114
"I never was so keen
 about a girl in my life."

115
"I'm crazy about you,
 Mary....I want you!"

116
"I should have known
 better than to have
 trusted you again!"

117
"Can't you understand...
     I mean this."

118
"Please listen to me,
        Mary."

119
In New London - -
 the night before the
 Yale-Harvard races.

120 [with musical notes]
"My wild Irish rose -"

121
"How about payin' for
  this taxi, buddy?"

122
"Charge it to Harvard...
  I'm one of his sons!"

123 [with musical notes]
"Sweet Adeleine
 MY ADDO-LINE!"

124
"Tom! Listen! The coach
 was here! MacAndrews
 has a bad hand again!
 You've got to row 
     tomorrow!"

125 [with musical notes]
"Row! Row! Row!
   Way up the river!"

126
"Hey! I brought those
  home to count 'em!"

127
"No .... Tom hasn't
 shown up yet, Coach.
 He went out to buy
 some....some books."

128
"Those fellows upstairs
 have been raising the
  dickens all evening."

129
"Now I gotta go get
 another jug of j'welly
  beans to count."

130
"Give'ya three to open
     those door!"

131 [with musical notes]
"My wild Irish rose!"

132
At nine-thirty the next
  morning the observ-
ation trains awaited the
start of the freshmen
        race.

133
"Eighty-six cents on 
      Harvard!"

134
"Yale has drawn the position
        nearer us."

135
"Yale is off in the lead!"

136
"Yale by a length already!"

137
"Harvard's coming up!"

138
"Come on Harvard!"

139
"Come on, Tom!"

140
"Brown is cracking!"

141
"Hold it, Harvard!"

142
After the race - - back
  in Cambridge. A few
 days before vacation.

143
"The same to you!"

144
"I feel sorry for a boy
 who makes the kind of
 mistake Brown made."

145
"Are you defending 
       him?"

146
Through the summer
 vacation at home
Tom determined to forget
      Harvard.

147
"Well, Son... you'll be
 a sophomore next term,
      won't you?"

148
"I'm not going back to
 Harvard.....I can't!"

149
"What happened, Son....
 surely you can tell your 
         dad."

150
"Well...I lost my freshmen
 race for Harvard because I
 got stewed and was out of
           shape."

151
"You can't let just one
 mistake beat you, Tom
        my boy."

152
"But it isn't only one
 mistake. There was a
       girl - -"

153
"I had hoped you would
 always keep our name 
        clean."

154
"You've got me wrong, 
 Dad. She is the girl 
       I love."

155
"If she's that kind of a
 girl, Tom .... you can't
 quit! You must go back
   and fight for her."

156
Once more ... Harvard.

157
- and Tom Brown a
sophomore at Claverley 
       Hall.

158
"Well ... if it ain't the
     old half pint!"

159
"I thought you weren't
 coming back, you big
        Bozo!"

160
"Well, I thought I'd come
 back and help Harvard
 lose a couple of football
         games."

161
"Have you seen Mary 
       yet?"

162
"I don't think she wants
     to see me, Doo."

163
"Aw, let's talk about
      football."

164
"I'm going to try out
 for the chess squad
     this year."

165
Tom began football
  practice with the
counsel of his father
   fresh in mind.

166
"It's awfully good to
 see you again, Mary."

167
"May I call on you 
     tonight?"

168
"I do not care to see
 you tonight or any
    other night."

169
"You're making a big
 mistake...I'm awfully
    good company."

170
"What's the matter, Mary ...
 afraid to be friends with a
 fellow just because he's in
          wrong?"

171
"I'm not afraid...I just
    don't want to be!"

172
"Let go of her, Brown!"

173
"She doesn't want me 
    to let go - -"

174
"- do you, Mary?"

175
"Yes I do!"

176
"See...just like a woman!
 She says 'Yes' when she
      means, 'No'!"

177
"No use getting sore, Mac.
 Mary loves me ..... and
      that's that!"

178
"Some day I hope you'll
 meet the right girl, too,
          Mac."

179
"Have you read about
 me in The Crimson, 
       Doo?"

180
"Yes, I'm sorry, Tom...
 but better luck next
        year."

181
"Mother and Dad are coming
 to the game. It'll be tough
 to tell them I've been
        dropped."

182
"Gee, this stuff is strong.
    It gets in my eyes."

183
"I'm going over to Boston
    to meet my folks."

184
"Brown hasn't shown 
      up yet."

185
"The squad is waiting to
 leave! Where the devil 
       is Brown?"

186
"Why ... The Crimson
 said that Tom was 
 dropped from the
      squad!"

187
"Dropped .... nothing!
 Who's running this
 team .... The Crimson
       or me?"

188
"Tell him to get here in
 twenty minutes or he
 will be off the squad!"

189
"The team! They're
 waiting for you!"

190
"I've got to get this
   kid back to bed!"

191
The morning of the Yale-
  Harvard game.....at
the Stillman Infirmary.

192
"Honest, Mary ... Tom's a
 great fellow. I've always
 wanted to be like him."

193
"If you knew him the way
 I do....you'd believe in
       him, Mary."

194
"He loves you....won't
 you please promise to
  give him a chance?"

195
Two o'clock at the
  Harvard Stadium.

196
"Can you tell me why 
 Tom Brown is not in
    the line-up?"

197
"Say ... Brown lost a boat
 race for Harvard last year
 because he got drunk -"

198
"- and they say he was
 drunk again last night."

199
Yale!

200
"Brek-ek-ek-ex co-ax co-ax!
 Brek-ek-ek-ex co-ax co-ax!
 O-op! O-op! Parabalou!
 YALE! YALE! YALE!"

201
Harvard!

202
Harvard! Harvard! Harvard!
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Team! Team! Team!

203
The toss-up.

204
"Yale will kick off to
 us - - Harvard will
      receive."

205
"Ready - Harvard?"

206
"MacAndrews made 
  that tackle!"

207
Yale's Ball!
  - - on Harvard's 15
  yd. line!

208
"Now ... get into it,
       Brown!"

209
"Well...for cryin' out
 loud! They've put in
 that quitter, Brown!"

210
"I'll have you understand
 that boy is no quitter!"

211
"Brown stopped them!"

212
"See! I told you that
 Brown guy is a quitter!"

213
Yale's Ball!
     Fourth down!

214
Between halves -

215
"Dig your toes in.....
 hit 'em hard! This
 isn't ping-pong.....it's
 football. Where's
    your guts?"

216
"Let me speak to Jed
 Doolittle's nurse,
      please"

217
"Hey, Brown! Cut out
 that social stuff and
      come here!"

218
"Cut that out and
    come here!"

219
"There's eighty thousand
 people out there and half
 of them love Harvard!
 Now show 'em what
  you're made of!"

220
"Now, get out there...
 and fight, damn it!
 Fight for Harvard!!"

221
The last quarter -
  Yale's ball -

222
"Touchdown! Yale!
 Touchdown! Yale!"

223
"The ankle's all right!
  Give me a chance!"

224
"They've put that
 quitter back in
 again! Harvard...
  goood-night!"

225
"Harvard's ball!"

226
"Attaboy, Brown!"

227
"- that was my son!"

228
"Hold 'em, Yale!
 Hold 'em, Yale!"

229
"Two minutes to play!"

230
"Touchdown! Harvard!
 Touchdown! Yea! Brown!
    Brown! Brown!"

231
"They're expecting me
 to carry it again! Let's
 fake it and give it to 
      MacAndrews!"

232
"TOUCHDOWN!"

233
"You carried the ball ninety
 yards, Brown ..... I only
     carried it three."

234
"Thanks, Mary .... but
 Brown really won the
  game for Harvard."

235
But the sacrifice of today
 becomes a tradition of
tomorrow....for youth must
go on and life must go on,
and the spirit of her immortal 
sons leads as HARVARD 
       GOES ON!

236
"It's The Dickey! They're
    coming this way!"

237
"Harvard's proud of
 you, Tom....and so
      are we!"

238
"It's The Dickey, the
 honor society. Every
 year they select the
       best men."


The End
