Loveliest of the Plains: Manscouts

It’s pathetic, I’m sure, but receiving original Loveliest of the Plains photos is one of the genuine thrills of my life. So join me in thrilling to the sight of lovely Charlene Davis (another War Gam Eagle!), the Sports Spectacular (a Loveliest of the Plains supplement that made the Plainsman twice as lovely for several years in the 1960s) for the Sept. 25, 1965 issue of The Plainsman. According to the caption, she’s reading a copy of the Neel-inked “Auburn-Houston program despite the fact that numerous boyscouts (sic) are peeping over her shoulder.”

After posing for this photo—who came up with this? $5 its a Mauldin—I think it’s safe to say that they’re manscouts (sick).

Bama students vandalized their own campus with Auburn graffiti before the 1953 Iron Bowl

In 1953, a Bama student, either out of self-loathing, or in an attempt to rile his team to victory in the upcoming Iron Bowl, painted not just random doors and alleys of his own campus with Auburn slogans, but Denny freakin' Chimes. So when someone tries to stop you from relieving yourself on the Saban statue at this year's game, just tell them: "I learned it from watching you."
