Sidelights Oi Game
High School Band Performs j
Apple Show At Grid Fracas yd B1?5 wrxk
When a drum majorette fainted
at the Waynesville-Asheville School
game Saturday night, some 4,000
spectators failed to realize that it
was part of the show. After realiz
ing the fact, the fans settled back
and enjoyed a commendable half
time performance by the Waynes
ville high school band in connec
tion with Apple Week ceremonies.
As the band was marching down
the field, one of the majorettta
fainted and a drum major came to
her rescue and carried her off the
field. They were immediately met
by bandmaster, Charles Isley, who
spread a blanket to comfort the
"fainted" lassie. In the meantime,
the public address system yelled
frantically for a doctor, who later
came down to administer first aid.
Another drum major came out
with a big red apple, about the
size jrf a large pumpkin, and the
doctor shied away The moral of
the act was. an apple a day will
keep the doctor away
After this the majorette and
drum major walked oil the field
arm-in-arm while the band played
an "Apple Blossom Wedding ".
