BRYSON CITY TO MEET
FRANKLIN HIGH FEB. 10
Bryson City will , come to visit
Franklin High's basketball court
Friday night, February 10. This is
the .second time these rival teams
have met. Franklin and Bryson City
have always been 'bitter enemies in
basketball and football. A capacity
crowd is expected to see these
evenly-matched teams play. Frank
lin .should have a small advantage
over their rivals because of the
strange court. With Tyler and
Teems back as forwards, the girls
will probably make up for the de-.
feat that was given them at Bryson
City. The starting lineup for the
girls will probably be: Teem and
Tyler, F; -Henderson, C; Barnard,
Fouts and Justice, G:
- The boys, line up is Leatherman,
C; Culver and Penland, G; Wilkie
and Fouts, F.
PADGETT GIVES FINE
TALK TO SCHOOL
The high school had the privi
ledge of hearing Dr. Padgett of the
state board of health in chapel hour
Monday.. His .subject was "Syphillis
and Gonorrhea." .He expressed the
importance of the extermination of
these diseases and gave the death
toll that they take each year. Dr.
Padgett stated that these diseases
occur chiefly in youths between
the ages of 14 . and 30. HU talk
was very much appreciated by the
entire school. .
FRANKLIN HIGH SCHOOL
TO PLAY H1GDONVILLE
Franklin high school plays the
Higdonville all-stars Wednesday
nignt, February 8, in a twin bill
at the school auditorium. This marks
the ,s.econd meeting of these teams.
Previously, the Higdonvilleboys de
feated the Franklin boys, but the
'Franklin girls shellacked the Hig
donville girls. Higdonville has suf
fered but one defeat out of seven
games. This will prove a much bet
ter game than the outlook shows.
The lineup has been .shifted for
Franklin and. at the beginning of
the game will probably read:
'Leatherman, C; Culver and Setser,
G; Cunningham and Wilkie, F.

' C-AR OWNERS everywhere are acclaiming the extra
! blowout protection and non-skid safety of the new Firestone
Champion Tire. And automobile manufacturers, knowing its
outstanding performance, have adopted it for their new 1939
models. On every hand you hear, "It's the most effective tire
we have ever had on wet pavement and in mud and snow!"
It's the hit of 1939!
The . Firestone Champion" Tire is a completely new
achievement in safety engineering and the result of a new and
revolutionary means of locking greater safety into the cord
body of a tire. This is accomplished first, by the use of a new
type of tire cord called "Safety-Lock," in which the cotton
fibers are more compactly interwoven to give greater strength.
And then the fibers in each individual cord, the cords in each
ply and the plies themselves are all securely locked together by
a new and advanced Firestone process of Gum-Dipping, which
provides amazingly greater strength and greater strength
, means greater safety
fcV The new Safety-Lock coiyl construction gives the added
Strength that makes possible the use of the new thicker, tougher,
deeper Firestone Gear-Gr4p Tread, which provides remarkably
longer non-skid mileage. This sensational new tread is called
"Gear-Grip" because of its unique design which has more
than three thousand sharp-edged angles that grip the road with
a sure-footed hold to protect against skidding and to assure a
