Buncombe's All-Stars, piloted
by Larry Gravette, rolled to a
13-6 victory over the Midwestern
eleven Thursday in the second an

Memorial Stadium in Asheville
before a gathering of some 1,500
Much interest in the game, from
the Marshall standpoint, was
dulled when 'it was learned that
Clarence Edwards, star Marshall
back who was slated to start for
the Midwesterns, was injured in
the final .scrimmage and was un
able to play. Edwards had star
red in p re-game workouts and
the Midwesterners were greatly
handicapped by the loss of the
brilliant breakaway runner.

A Face Lifting
The Court House yard has had
a face-lifting. The petunias and
scarlet saae, given an extra month
of blooming before being killed
back by late frost, have been re
nvived. Spring blooming bulbs,
Red Emperor tulips and King Al
fred daffodils have been planted
by fie Marshall Garden Club.
Two boxwoods, donated by Mr.
Charlie Coates, have been put out
in the front bed. The Marshall
Garden Club is responsible also
for the evergreen shrubs used as
base planting around the Court
House. Although none of these
are blooming varieties, they will
furnish a year-'round touch of
color to the grounds. These
shrubs replaced some old bridal
wreath bashes which were moved
to the Island for future planting
there. With the Christmas sea
son just around the corner, va
ried preparatory activities can be
seen around and about town. The
Court House grounds have been
cleaned in readiness for the love
ly decorations to be used there.
The amount, of trash thrown in
the yards and shrubs did not
speak well of the townspeople of
Marshall nor of the people of
Madison County. True, election
night, with its large crowd, was
sure to leave its mark; however,
we should always remember that
it takee little effort to carry; that
piece of paper to a trash contain
