by winning an impressive victory over
the Jamesville Hiwh- School foo'tball
team by a one-sided score of 32 to 6.

more power and experience than the
Jamesville boys, and the outcome of
the contest was never in doubt fol
lowing the opening kick-off when the
Indians rolled up four first downs in
The game was a preview of what
fans may expect of the Indians dur
ing the current season. There were
some flaws in the play of the Indians,
but these were to be expected when
it is remembered most of the squad
are new to the game as regular start-,
ers. The Indians' offense, will im
prove, as will their defense, and the
opponents of the Indians can expect
stiff opposition during the year.
iFans will have the opportunity of
witnessing a better contest here to

a commanding lead in the game.

scored by Howard Williams and Vern

the second quarter, with the teams
playing about even. Perquimans scor
ed its third TD on a pass from John

score at half time was 19-0 for the
Indians. Jamesville opened up with
a passing attack in this period which
was effective and gave the visitors
