The master of ceremonies broke
in and had all former Waynesville
players of 1915-1920 stand and in
formed the 1948 team that they
would look like those fellows in 20
years. This drew considerable ap
plause. The Chamber of Commerce pre
sented Coach Weatherby, Coach
Ratcliff and Band Director Isley

Captains Owen and Liner of the
varsity and Co-Captains Messer
and Hipps of the Yannigans pre
