You'll marvel at the 'Prophecies' This 'Wonder book' relates, And dwell upon the destined lot, Of these, your youthful mates For some must be of high repute, Still more of less degree Nhile many plod a simple way Just 'folks' like you and me! A few You'll pause a moment When you turn the pages back, To gaze on those whose likeness Should be 'kem'ry etched in black' Whose names once graced the roster, Ere the summons came to 'pass' But still vithin your Class Book They are 'Lembers of the ClassX' An oasis in Fancy, this, And green throughout the years Where one may rest a pensive hour Amidst the smiles and tears-- Ah, Friend! There's rich reflection That you shouldn't overlook, In between the faded covers. . . Of your Old Class Book!

The boys started right, by winning three straight games, then they lost one They bounced back with another win string at three and split the final tilts to make an excellent record of seven wlns and two losses The Buffaloes also defeated Shelton to take the eleven man Tri Valley crown ANSLEY For the second ye r in a row the first game of the season was played on our home field, with the always tough Ansley team With but two weeks' practice, both teams displayed some fine football Gibbon scored a 13 to O win with Ross accounting for 6 points on a pass play, and Sigler getting 6 through the line DeBrie's educated toe got one of the extra points BERTRAND Gibbon journeyed to Bertrand for the second game and gave the host team a lesson in how football is played. The final score was Gibbon 13, Bertrand O. LOUP CITY This was a close game, and it took some heads-up footballby Bill Ross to pull it out of the fire. At the half, it was O to 0 and no one was going anywhere, but in the third period a pass intended for Ross went over his head and was deflected by a Red Raider who tried to knock it down. The ball bounced high behind the visitor and was taken by Ross on the dead run. He scored before the Raiders could believe what they had seen. DeBr1e got the extra point for insurance.
