vention Morehead City Jaycees, at their
meeting Mondav night, accepted
the report of "no football this
year" from W. C. Matthews, school
board chairman, but strongly re
gistered their determination to
work with school officials in an ef
fort to have football next year.
At a previous meeting the Jay
cees went on record as in favor of
a football team and agreed to
raise money for necessary equip
ment. A committee was appoint
ed, with Bill Flowers chairman,
to contact school officials and see
what could be done.
W. C. Matthews was chief
spokesman for a school delegation
which attended Monday night's
Jaycee meeting to report the de
cision on football. Also present
were G. T. Windell, principal, and
Gannon Talbert,' coach.
Reporting on a meeting of the
school board of trustees Friday
afternoon, in which the entire
question of athletics was reviewed,
Matthews first expressed their
"deep appreciation for the interest
of the Jaycees."
He then announced their deci
sion that the school could not field
a football team this year for two
primary- reasons, shortage of eli
gible players and shortage of fi-
"Th board.. wants to start foot
ball as soon as possible," he said,
"perhaps within two years." He
said they intended to work toward
that end. (An official statement
of the school board decision was
released by Matthews and publish
ed in Tuesday's NEWS-TIMES.)
Bruce L. Goodwin, Jaycee pre
sident, promised that the Jaycees
will back the effort to have a team
with everything possible. They
urged that a football be provided
for the boys to handle and get the
' feel of the game this year.
S. A. Chalk, Jr., chairman of a
committee to make plans for ob
servance of fire prevention week,
Oct. 3-9, announced that prizes
would be offered school children
in a contest on the fire prevention
theme and Jaycees would sell fire
Details of the contest will be an
nounced later, but it was revealed
that $10 in prizes will be offer
ed the school children in a writing
Working with Chalk on the com
mittee are A. H. James, Jr., Frank
Hines, and Linster Lewis.
President Goodwin read a letter
from the Wilmington Jaycees ask
ing Morehead City Jaycees whe
ther they should support pari-mu-tuel
dog racing in a referendum to
be held in New Hanover county
in November. The president in
structed the secretary to reply to
the letter and refer the inquirers
to the Carolina Racing commis
sion. At the suggestion of H. S. Gibbs,
Jr., the Jaycee secretary was in
structed to write Reidsville Jay
cees and express their regrets that
a Morehead City representative did
appear in the recent Harvest Fes
tival beauty contest.
