The “33” is cleverly disguised as the cow’s udder, meaning there is “no udder class like it.” The tail forms the “9.” Viewers are invited to find the “1.”

Surrounding the cow: a handshake representing the renewal of relations with Harvard; a deflated money bag symbolizing the Great Depression; a football with the initials “M.V. O” meaning “Major Victories: Zero”; and a pennant containing a “P” for Princeton, the initials of John Grier Hibben (the university president), Ken Fairman (an outstanding athlete) or Keen Fitzpatrick, and Herbert O. “Fritz” Crisler (the new football coach),
