The Abilene High School football squad started practice about September the first- Thirty
men reported for practice the number steadily increasing until, about one month later there
were sixty men out every day. With the best coach in the state and the best captain in the
West it looked like from the start that Abilene would put out a winning team.
NAVY 3-ARMY 0
The Army-Navy game is held each year in the school to arouse Hpepf, to raise money, and
to show Coach whom he can depend ong this year's game did all of these things. The Navy
won the game by the narrow margin of 3 to 0 by a drop kick from the twenty-five yard line, Cap-
tain Murphy making the kick.
A. H. S. 74-MERKEL 0
The next game was with Merkel on their gridiron. Abilene's team was in best form for
early season. Merkel was outclassed in every part of the game, as shown by the fact Coach
used all the men that were suited out. The final score was 74 to 0.
A. H. S. 70-SWEETWATER 0
The next game was with Sweetwater on our home field. The third quarter was used to give
the second team a chance to show what they had been learning under the work of Coach Brooks.

A. H. S. 54.-ROSCOE 7
The following day we played Roscoe. As this is Roscoeis first football team Coach sent
in the second team. Roscoe made the first score by a perfectly worked cross-buck but after that we
did not let them get within the twenty-yard line. Noland's broken field running was the only
feature of the game. The final score was 54 to 7.
Murphy kicked every goal out of as many tries. 7 5
