I don’t remember what year it was, but I remember it going on, and I can remember I took the first Black player before integration who played.  Had some Black athletes.  I took them to see if they could play football, and they turned ’em down.  And then I think the following year we integrated, and I got ’em all out.  And I would say probably because of, you know, everybody...  The bottom line was that you wanted to win football games, and as far as integration and so on were concerned, it was great.  They got along great.  Because, again, they just wanted to win football games.
