FOR GALLATIN HIGH - The Gallatin high school football team held its first workout Monday night and there was a goodlv number of candidates for the team on hand STRONG TEAM LOOMS From present indications it appears that the high this year will be com posed of championship material. * Coach Chauner has not made any rash promises about the team as yet, but he and the assistant coaches, Cline and McGough, are very opt -1 mistic. They believe there is mat u - ial for a real fast team with enough weight in the makeup to hold any kind of an attack and to cany the ball through the defense of the oppon ents. There is only one game so far sheduled for the season, although oth ers are in line. The first game, which will be a sort of a tryout, is to bo played with the Deer Lodge team on their home grounds, and the boys ex pect to meet with hard going there The unknown quality of the team wiil be brought out in this game and then the coaches can form a fairly good idea of what can be done, Since 1918 the Gallatin high has had some very good material in the field, but not strong enough to bring home th< championship. Everyone is planning on making the present sea son a clean sweep and clinching the banner. It is figured that the Gal latin /high is due for carrying off all honors this year and those who trying to make the team have that point in m nd. are CLEANUP CAMPAIGN STARTS OCTOBER 4 Opportunity Will Be Given Every Veteran to Receive Assistance in Settling Claims « Every buddie in Montana can be of real value to hundreds of other buddies," announces Dr. D.
