' The 1956 .figures from the Na

the leading causes of death for all
ages as: diseases of the heart and
blood vessels, cancer, accidents
pneumonia, diabetes and cirrhosis
of the liver.
In Cherokee County last year dis
eases of heart and blood vessels
claimed 63 lives; cancer 16; acci
dents, 14; pneumonia, 8; prema*
turity, 4; and diabetes, 2.
In North Carolina, the leading

Diseases of the heart and blood

Nationally, diseases of the heart
and blood vessels account for
53.9% of all deaths
It is significant that prematurity
rates disproportionately high in
this state in comparison to the
country as a whole- In last year's

Wildcats fans found their loyal
ties divided Friday afternoon when
the 'Cats took the field to play the
'Cats in a rough and ready game
of football. Coach Maennle divided
his team according to equal play
ing ability with John Ellis coach
ing the 'White" Team and Leroy
Gilbert coaching the "Red" team
Captains were Archie Myers and
Joe Jones? "Red"; and Terry Pos
tell and Gerald Curtis "White".
The White team took the lead in
the first quarter with Hubert My
ers scoring the TD. After two
scoreless quarters Archie Myers
scored for the Red team but Terry
Pastell came through in time with
a TD and extra point for the
"White" victory 13-?.
The proceeds of the game will
go to the Junior and Senior class
treasuries. Tickets were sold by
members of both classes and the
proceeds are to be divided equally
between the classes.
Student pictures were received
Wednesday, causing quite a bit of
confusion as students exchanged
photographs with friends, teachers
and anyone else who wished to
trade. The pictures were received
with much enthusiasm; and though
there were a few questionable like
nesses, almost everybody seemed
well pleased with them.
