And now, back to the boxing show
last Friday night, the only bout that
interested and amused the fans there
was the scrap between the two little

bad, but was much slower than that
of last week.
In the feature bout, Kid Massie had
Tommy Powers backed into the ropes
when Powers landed a hard (?) right
to the chin . . . . Massie ought to make
a nice swimmer . . . he drives beautifully.

Team Is Working
Hard And Running
Fine; Spirit Good
Present Indications Are That
The Team Will He Heavy.
Few Reserves
By Gordon Hendricks
Hopes for another successful foot
ball campaign for the Waynesville
Mountaineers mounted last week, as
I the boys worked out each afternoon
I with increased pep and smoothness.
I Coaches Weatherby and Ratcliff
have been sending the boys through
i blocking and tackling practice, black-
board and signal drills.
It is almost certain that the first
team will be fairly heavy, and in thu
case of the backfiled, fast. The boys
have shown a marked amount of pep
and spirit, and despite the obvious
lack of reserves, appear headed for a
good record.
Wilford Mehaffey, who had been
running at first team center last week
dropped out of school Tuesday, with
out giving any reason but his place
can be tilled by either Taylor, who
has been working on Second string, or
if necessary, one of the other linemen
can be shifted.
Willie Messer, one of last year's re
serve ends, is showing up Well in prac
tice, along with Smith and Saunders,
backfield men. It is too early to pro
diet a starting line-up. but in the line,
Chalin and -Messer ends, Davis and
Handcock tackles, Collins and Mil
ner, guards, and either Taylor, or
whomsoever Weatherby and Ratcliff
decide upon are leading the parade
for starting positions. Pktt, end,
Iloyle Hancock, tackle, and Jimmie
Stringtield are still in the fight, however.
