The Waynesville Mountaineers
ran rough shod over the visiting
Marion eleven last Friday night
by a score of 34 to 12 before ap
proximately one thousand en
Up until the first half it looked
as if the visitors would give the
mountaineers a hard run for their
money although the locals crossed
pay dirt first.
The first period was more or less
a punting duel between the two
teams with neither team threat
ening, but early in the second
quarter the Mountaineers put on
an additional spurt of power and
drove 74 yards for their first
tally with Inman carrying the
mail from the sixty yard line.
Wyatt plunged over center for the
Marion came back in the same
period and started their drive
from midfield with the drive
ending after a pass from B. Har
ris to Ayers was good for the re
maining eleven yards and a score.
The attempted kick for the point
was wide and the score was 7 to G
and remained that way until the
Comin? tack in the third period
it iooked as if Marion was on the
march after carrying the ball down
to the locals 20 where the forward
wall of the Mountaineers dug in
and the ball went over. On the

The world series which ended
Monday was worth $5,917.31 to each
member of the victorious New York
Ya- k'-es and $4,808.00 to the reg-
verted the point on an end run.
Marion then took to the air and
without once running a line play
they scored by a pass to Walker for
the last tally of the evening. An
attempted kick failed to go between
the uprights, and the game ended
with the locals getting revenge
over having dropped their game the
week before to Andrews.
The Waynesville Township High
School band added their part to
the victory by giving demonstra
tions both before the game and at
the half in marching and forma
tions. They also added their part
during the game by playing march
es and other popular tune.
Some credit should be given to

who played a grand ball game, it
was very seldom that a reverse

ulars of the Brooklyn Dodgers.
The individual shares for the
Brooks were the largest ever earned
by a losing team and the Yankees
cut were the sixth largest ever
paid a winning team. .
The reason the Dodgers' shares
were larger was that they voted
only a total of 26 1-4 shares and
$6,000 in : gratituities compared
with 32 1-2 shares and $6,000 in
gratituities divided by the Yanks.
The split voted by the Brooklyn
club on the last day of the season
has never been announced, but the
Associated Press learned recently
that none of the players who were
with the club in early and mid sea

Drama on the Sidewalks
We think of wildlife drama, the
spprehension of game law viola
tors, etc., as strictly an ouiaoor
oroposition. But some of our most
important cases having to do with
ish and game law violations have
iome to a head on crowded streets,
n skyscrapers, and in dark alleys.

Two minutes later Federal
agents swooped down on the clus

next day the leaders and members
of the Chicago ring were in Fed

ways than we might think. For
instance, it had a direct effect on
fishermen. Since most of the silkr

from Spain and very little qf it

acute shortage resulted. Tihis
