quarterback who was expected to
lead them in their football wars
Jack Justice, who quarterbacked
his team to victory over Presbyterian
in the locals opener, suffered
a broken wrist in the second quarter,
and x-rays over the week end
confirmed the report that he would
be mising from the Mountaineers'
lineup the balance of the season.

over on a 37-yard run, and Claude
Midkiff kicked the ball through
the props to make the extra point.

made the first score on the last
play of the first quarter after re
coverinf a fumble on the Mountaineer
18-yard line. Joe Dixon hit
Ronald Brooks with a 17-yard aerial
for a touchdown on the third
play from scrimmage. Larry Ledford
Appalachian took the ensuing
kickoff and traveled down to East
Tenneessee's 15-yard line before
the Buccaneer forward wall took
over on downs.

went 61 yards for East Tennessee's
second score, with Don Lobertini
converting. The Bucs led 144 at

Jim Krause carried the ball over
with a three-yard plunge.

some good defensive displays, one
time when the Bucs were knocking
on the touchdown door just a few
feet of (coring position. The Apps
held them there throkgh three try*
and took the ball when the Bucs
failed to go aver.

Parkway School Teachers Provide
College Scholarship Facilities
The faculty of Parkway School
it establishing a scholarship fund
for the purpose of helping outstanding
through Appalachian State Teachers
Each year two or more students
will be choaen from the eighth
grades to compete in high school
for the scholarship award. During
the students senior year in high
school the Parkway faculty, in
conjunction with teachers of Appalachian
High School, will choose
one former Parkway student as
the recipient of the scholarship.
Students will be selected on the
basis of need and initiative, as
well as scholarship, character, and
citizenship. Competing students
are expected to finish their high
school training in the upper 20%
of their graduating daises.
The scholarship fund arrangement
is a long range program.
Faculty members contribute annually
an amount sufficient to aee
one student through one year of
college. The fund la being established
this year and will be added
to each year for four years. The
first student to receive the benefit
of this program will finiah the
eighth grade at Parkway School
this year. Hence when the child
has completed four years of high
school, and has met the standard
required, he will enter college, to
be followed in turn by one stu
dent each year.
The scholarship program is designed
to provide only the immediate
necessities for the student.
Students, through their continuing
initiative, are expected to carry
their share of the responsibilities
much as they did during their
high school years.
The scholarship program does
more than furnish children an opportunity
to go to college. Many
excellent students do not finish
high school, because they cannot
visualize the outcome of their efforts.
It is believed that by offering
the possibility of college training
after high school, our most
capable students will be encouraged
to finish high school.
