BOONE, WATAUGA COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER M, VOLUME LXX.— NO. 13 SIGNS OF THE TIMES . . Typical Football Crowd in Appalachian College Stadium. Mountaineers Suffer Defeat; First Conference Tilt Shapes Appalachian State Teachers College Mountaineers went down in defeat before East Tennessee State Teachers College Saturday night at Johnson City, Tenn., with a score of 20-7. In doing so, they lost the services of a freshman quarterback who was expected to lead them in their football wars this season. 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. Appalachian was not able to make a score until the third quarter, when they made a 65-yard touchdown drive. Quarterback Ansel Glendenning carried the ball over on a 37-yard run, and Claude Midkiff kicked the ball through the props to make the extra point. Coach Star Wood's Buccaneers 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 converted. Appalachian took the ensuing kickoff and traveled down to East Tenneessee's 15-yard line before the Buccaneer forward wall took over on downs. Just two plays later, Bob Lindsey went 61 yards for East Tennessee's second score, with Don Lobertini converting. The Bucs led 144 at halftime. The final touchdown was made the Tennessee boys when they traveled 43 yards to the end zone. Jim Krause carried the ball over with a three-yard plunge. Coach Bob Broome's boys made 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. Statistics of the game were: Appalachian ETSC t First Downs It 180 ... No. Yds Rushing 371 11 Yds.

The Mountaineers will be trying to fcrget their defeat last week by East Tennessee as they seek to tromp the Catamounts, who have failed to win either of their first two games. For the first time this year the Mountaineers will be facing a more evenly matched team, as far as weight goes. According to the starting lineup released by the two coaches, almost every position will be closely matched in weight by their opponents. The Catamounts will be l£d by quarterback John Mugford, 193junior transfer from the University of Notre Dame. He is said to be an excellent ball handler, a good passer, and a top runner. (Continued on page two) Parkway School Teachers Provide College Scholarship Facilities The faculty of Parkway School it establishing a scholarship fund for the purpose of helping outstanding Parkway students through Appalachian State Teachers College. 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. Lions WU1 Aid Cane.
