700 See Franklin Defeat
Asheville iJ' Team 26-0
Before more than 700 school
children and a fair-sized crowd
of adults, some of whom were
seeing their first football game,
the Franklin Panthers ran
roughshod over the Ashevllle
Maroons' "B" squad to gain a
well earned 26-0 victory on the
local field last Thursday after
Franklin gained the lead on
the third play of the game when
Lyman Gregory ran 60 yards for
the first touchdown. Oregory
literally outran the Maroon
eleven on this play. Mason scor
ed the extra point on a line
The Panthers struck again in
the first quarter when Mason
scored on a 25-yard jaunt.
During the remainder of the
first half, the two teams battled
on fairly even term*. Franklin
threatened to score once more,
but a fumble by Cabe, which
Ashevllle recovered on the vis
itors' five-yard line, stopped the
Leading II to 0 at the start
of the second half, Franklin
W9M4 two mon towMoviu in
the third quarter, and one ex
tra point to put the game on
Ice. Cabe scored both touch
downs In the second half, and
Henry made the extra point on
a line buck.
The fourth quarter was score
less, with coach Plyler sending
in numerous substitutes for the
Franklin eleven.
Ashevllle showed a scrappy,
hard playing but inexperienced
eleven. Lack of weight in the
line also told against this Ma
roon "B" squad.
The entire Franklin first
string backfleld showed up well
in this game and the play of
Harley Stewart In the line was
outstanding for the local eleven.
Since hundreds of the chil
dren who attend the consolidat
ed school here are transported
by bus and thus must leave the
school In mid-afternoon, many
of them rarely If ever have an
opportunity to be in town at
night for a football game. With
thle in view, last week's game
wu held la the Afternoon to
permit tb?M pupil i attend.

To Bring Down Deer,
Shoot Him In Heart?
Wrong, Saya Expert
"It you want to drop a deer
in his tracks, forget that time
honored heart shot and hit him
In the neck."
That's the advice John S.
Rose, the National Rifle asso
ciation's conservation expert,
gives the nation's 11,000,000
hunters in The American Rifle
man, based on the results of a
six-month study of the business
of deer killing.
"Then," quoting Rose again,
"if you miss your lead and the
bullet lands a couple of feet
back of where you wanted It,
you can still count on a very
dead deer somewhere In the im
mediate vicinity, or at least a
deer that won't run Into the
middle of the next county."
Rose, In his article, "Stop
That Buck," presents facts bas
ed on over 5,000 deer kills and
attempts to provs that "the
Ideas of the vast majority of
United States hunters on where
to hit a deer to bring him down

Dr. Mildred Morgan Is
Heard At Meeting
Of P. T. A.
Approximately 85 parents and
teachers Monday night heard
Dr. Mildred I. Morgan, of Ashe
ville, speaking at the monthly
meeting of the Franklin Par
ent-Teacher association, recom
mend that courses In family re
lations be taught in the public
Dr. Morgan is coordinator of
family life for the city schools
of Asheville and state P. T. A.
social hygiene chairman.
Speaking on the topic, "Pre
paring our Young People for
Better Family Living", Dr. Mor
gan pointed out that, though
successful family living affects
Individual lives more than any
other one thing, very few
schools today offer instruction
to help young people to adjust
themselves to face this intricate
problem. Such subjects as Eng
lish and mathematics, on the
other hand, are required.
Divorce rate statistics which
show that today one out of
every three marriages ends in
divorce, and that the present
rate of increase in divorce will
make the ratio one out of two
by 1960, were cited by the
speaker as illustrating the vital
need for courses in the schools
to help prepare young people
for marriage. They should be
courses, Dr. Morgan explained,
not merely in sex, but in all
the factors that go into the re
lations of one human being with
Such courses are offered in
many colleges, she pointed out,
but, she added, only one high
school graduate out of 10 erer
gets to college.
Emphasizing the thought that
material things a parent-teach
er association can provide for
a school are secondary, the
speaker suggested financing of
such a course as an ideal P. T.
A. project.
Prior to the introduction of
the speaker ty Mrs. Weimar
Jones, association president, a
number of committee reports
were heard.
Mrs. W. E. Hunnlcutt, mem
bership* chairman, reported that
she and her committee mem
bers ? Mrs. Harmon Gnuse and
