Thirsty Morrin, head of the A. A. E. T.,
holds twelve medals, won in Iowa contests
in eating. He has an astounding appetite
and a desire for more. When interviewed
by an Ambrosian reporter, he said, "I owe
my success to my early training and my
robust physique."
Greedy Gross, the first one to use the
two-hand method in face feeding, is one of
the most active men on the team, since he
has an incommensurable capacity and a
proverbial bottomless pit. Although he
sends in his bread plate about seven times
in one meal, he is the author of the heartrending ballad, "I Am Starving, Mother;
Starving in Our Lonely S. A. C."
Stuffy Schnoeblen possess a 48-horsepow-
er appetite and an affection for eats. He
refuses to believe in Fletcherism and is carnivorous, herbivorous and ichtyophigous—
three in one. He holds the opinion that,
"Tain't what you want that makes you fat;
it's what you get."
Omnivorous Buckley appeared for a try-
out Sept. 10, 1914. The boy showed fast
teamwork from the start and knows every
point of the game. When asked what his
specialty was in that line, he answered,
"Everything." Although he is the youngest man on the team, he bids fair to surpass them all.
Hungry Whalen, a veteran player on the
team, has a cast-iron stomach and eats
everything, from beans to raspberry pie.
He has invented a hollow knife, so that he
can eat beans without theiri rolling off the
blade. He is an advocate of free lunch
counters and his ambition is to own a restaurant.
