Coach Dave Fuller's Indians came
to life last Thursday night and
downed the highly-touted Central
High quintet in what the writer 'be
lieves was as good a basketball ex
hibition given on the local court for
the past several years.
The entire Perquimans team played"
as a unit throughout the game and
displayed a fine zone defense that
upset the visitors' offense no little.
Hertford took the opening tip-off
and proceded down to its basket and
whisked the ball through the nets for
a two-pointer that placed them in
the lead which the Indians held until
the final three minutes of the game
when Central scored a bucket totfcke
the lead 22-21. The Indians came
back immediately and hit for another
long one that restored the lead and
gave the Indians the victory.
Nixon, Byrum, Stokes, Wood, Can
non and Dillard all had several
points to their credit at the final
whistle, while Owens, Jackson and
Sawyer were the high point getters

trouble with the Squaws' game and

Mae White and Mildred Gault tallied
for four points each.

who departed this life on January
Grandmother dear, you have left us
In this world to weep and mourn
But we know you are in that city
Just beyond the silvery foam.
You were a great worker for Jesus
On this broad ocean of life,
Now. your ship has sailed and
Over on the other side.
You are over there with the angels
Singing praises around His throne
Patiently beckoning to your loved
To come to this Celestial home.
It made us all so sad and lonely
When you left this world below
But, by God's help, we will meet you
When the pearly gates unfoQd.
