Basketball is hitting its stride
all over the country as well a la
his community, but football con
tinues to break into the routine.
Last week the football squad of the
Waynesviile high school presented
Coach Weatherby with a co ache's
trophy. This is the first time that
.We can remember that such a pro
cedure has taken place here, and

football squad thought of their

The trophy was a mounted
bronze affair that pictured a coach
giving instructions to his team. It
aa been the custom for several
jyears to give the coach a present
af some description, but never a
trophy of this nature. The trophy ,
Its highly prised by Coach Weath-i
arby, and in return he made the
stateoMot that it has been a long
since he has had as pleasant
group of boys to work with.
W wander what happened to the
bowling league that was started
here some time ago. It started off j
with a bang and ended as far as
we can find out also with a bang.
Bowling could be worked out to
be one of the leading sports in this
eommun ity. We still believe that
If the dubs would get together and
properly organize the league could

for it to last very long.

Bowling is coming to the front as
a winter sport, more and more
towns and cities are taking bowl
ing serious, and if this community
is to have a bowling league now is
the time to start Next year may
be too late and there is no time
Eke the present. Bowling is one of
the best forms of recreation that
any town can put before its people,

and there are enough clubs and
civic organizations to have several
teams each and make a large
league. Think the matter over and
then lets have action.

There is another sport that Is
open to some of the younger set
and that is boxing. The Golden
Glove Tournament will open- soon
in Asheville, and the chances are
that there will not be an entry
from this community. Some peo
ple do not approve of the fistic
pastime, but taking it from all
angles it is not as bad as it seems,
and there are plenty of youngsters
that can handle their "dukes" in
this community. Canton has sev
eral fine boxers and many pros
pects coming on, why shouldn't
Waynesville? Of course there is
the question of a place to work-out
and to practice. We believe this
could be worked but if enough in
terest is shown in the sport.
Local Girls Win; Clyde Boys
Victors In Two Hard Fought
tThe Waynesville Mountaineers
divided two close cam eames here
lat Fridav niirht with Clyde: with
thee local girls taking their game
25 to 19, while the local boys went
down in defeat to the tune of 17 to
15. These two games were the
closest games played so far this
season, and the fans were in an
uDroar the whole of the time.
The local lassies were in the
trailing position until the last
period when McElroy began finding
the basket to sink 6 field goals or
12 points to cinch the game for
the Mountaineers. McElroy led
the girls in scoring, totaling 20
points to her credit Donaldson, of
Clyde, came in second place with
The boy's game was filled with
thrills from start to finish with
the ead changing hands numerous
times, but when the final whistle
ended the game the visitors-had a
two point lead to win 17 to 15.
Henry, of the locals, and Brown, of
the. visitors, tied for scoring hon
ors with 6 points each.
