Caldwell and New Lexington
Battle to Scoreless Deadlock
The Redskins and the Panthers
battled tooth and nail last Friday
night in the league game that
was supposed to decide the out
come of the league race, but when
the smoke (or should I say dust)
of battle had cleared, the result
was a hard-fought scoreless dead
It was a pure example of two
evenly matched teams, charging
fast and tackling hard, e.
ing for a break which never
as they struggled back
between the 30 yard stripes. New
Lex advanced to Caldwell’s 18 on
ion. while the nearest the
Redskins could get towards
Panther goal was the 22.
New Lex missed their big scor
ing chance in the opening minutes

New Lex. The officials,
ruled that the whistle
had blown before the fumble, so
the Panthers simply took the ball
on downs on the 36. They managed
to get a first down on the 18,
where the Redskins stiffened to
hold foi downs. On the last down,
Abe Wollenberg tosed a pass to
Rankin in the end zone, but Ran
kin couldn't hold it.
The second quarter was a punt
ing duel, neither team being able
to advance through the air or on
the ground. On one occasion New
Lex moved to the Redskin 32, but
on the next two plays were thrown
for a loss of 20 yards to their own
drive in the
Caldwell started a
third period, only to
... u bog down
deep Tn New Lex territory. With
the Panthers in possesion of the
ball on their own 47, Reed broke
through a cordon of blockers to
nal the ball carrier for a seven
yard loss. On the next play Bigley
recovered a fumble on the 40, from
which point the Redskins moved
to the 22 on a series of running
plays with Tilton carrying the ball.
New Lex took possession at this
point after Caldwell failed to pick
up two yards necessary for a first
down, and the only Redskins
threat was averted.
Both teams took to thq air in the
final quarter in the hopes of scor
ing to break the deadlock. Cald
well’s thrust was broken up when
a pass was intercepted by New
Lex on their own 28 and a few
plays later Potts stopped a Panther
drive by intercepting an aerial on
the Caldwell 30 and returning it 22
yards to New Lex's 48. From here
Caldwell advanced to the New Lex
35 by means of a double reverse
play with Slovak carrying the ball
as the game ended.

CALDWELL BAND stole the show
during the halftime despite the
fact that earlier in the week they
had been politely “asked” not to
make the trip. New Lex had never
seen our band perform, conse
quently they were wild in their
enthusiasm for Caldwell’s snappy
and marching steps.

ATTENDANCE was estimated at
2500, including one dog which the
referees had to put off the field
early in the game, reminding us of
the Crooksville contest. Unusual
about the game was New Lex’s
kickoff with the ball lying flat
on the ground. This made the kick
wobbly and hard to catch.
“OUTPLAYED" would hardly fit

they turned in a performance that
should serve to silence other league
critics. All teams in the league this
year seem to be evenly matched

ALTHOUGH it had no direct bear
ing on the outcome of the game,
New Lex was presented with a
nice little gain of 10 yards when
the officials reversed the field at
the end of the third quarter. The
Panthers had the ball at the close
of the period on Caldwell’s 47 but
when the change was made, the
ball was put in play on the Red
skin 37, a gain of 10 yards for New
Lex. No amount of arguing could
change the decision of the referees,
who according to §ome, unwi itten
code can “do no wrong".
ON THE OTHER HAND, it's easy
for anyone to get confused on the
matter' of just where the ball is
resting on New Lex s field. Spec
tators are entirely in the dark
since the gridiron has no line
markers and the down marker is
so small that it can't be seen with
anything less than a pair of four
power binoculars. Surely a town
that can afford a $5500 lighting
system for the field can afford to
spend three or four dollars for
some line markers. This is one of
the several small matters existing

steadier bunch you couldn’t ask
for. Most of them are back at the

all probability be installed.

Travelers on route No. 40

a bit to get a better look at a herd
of dairy cows grazing on the farm

also puts extra dollars in the milk
Mr. Hamilton’s pasture system
provides grazing for his dairy herd
through a long season, plus an oc
14 acres of
about two acres of small grain, and
alfalfa grass mixture second
growth during July and August.
The bluegrass pasture on the
Hamilton Farm has received suffi
cient lime to permit growth of
legumes in the sod, and commer
cial fertilizer is applied regularly.
This farmer uses 10-6-4 or 8-8-8
fertilizer when he can get one of
those, he compromised on 4-10-6
for the last application.
Even with this treatment of his
pasture land, Mr. Hamilton finds
provision must be made for supple
mental forage. He turns the cows
on a couple acres of wheat or rye,
and either lets the cattle graze the
grain down completely or takes
the herd out after a period and lets
the wheat continue its growth for
harvest if grain is more important
than pasture that year.
Midsummer pasture is provided
by the second growth of an alfalfa
Ladino clover-timothy meadow
mixture, which produced a first
cutting for hay. Mr. Hamilton re
cently has seeded brome grass in
stead of timothy in the meadow
mxiture but the brome has
been growing long enough to
come well established.
