Otte Plays Football
Letters to Mrs. A. J. Jorgenson and to Miss Helena Bickel the last week, from former Sidney residents who have seen Lowell Otte play with Red Grange's pro-football team, are indicative of Lowell's continued success on the gridiron. Lowel played left end in two games, and according to the scribes who have written back to Sidney, his playing equaled if not exceeded, the scintillating "Red" himself. Playing his typical air-tight defense, Otte is making his side of the line impregnable, as he did in college football. His is a consistency and analysis of play which is a joy to the fans of his team, and cloud of gloom to his opponents. The many friends of Lowell wish him continued success and extend compliments for his work so far.
