Opening Game to
be with Dayton
Here on Friday
The Dayton and Kennewick boys
will open the first game of the sea
son here in the Lions Den Friday.
This promises to be a good game as
the teams are said to be quite even
ly matched. The average weight of
the team this year is 160 pounds,
but according 'to principal T. A.
Brimm, the local fans will probably
be surprised with the material this
year in spite of the fact that many
of the heavier boys were lost by
graduation. The officials for the
game Friday Will be Tom Deer
ing, Garth ‘Leisy and Gerwin Jones,
all of Walla Walla.
There are 35 boys turning out this
season and according to Coach Slat
ter the probable line-up for the
game tomorrow will be as follows:
ends, Michner and Yedlca; tackles,
Reymore and Soper; guards, Bishop,
Pettijean, Amon and Spreen; cen
ter, Smalley; backs, Campbell, How
land, Doyle, Brown. Quast and
Hauschild. Bishop and Smalley
are the only two playing the same
positions as last year.
The Sunnyside scrimmage last
Saturday worked out very well giv
ing the boys a chance for some good
hard practice. Doyle showed up
quite well at the fullback position,
while the line as a whole showed up
well as defense seemed to open the
holes for the backs. During the
last part of the scrimmage the
Fresh and Sophs composed the back
line-up. Local fans will probably
not see much action this year from
this line-up, but they are very good
prospects for the future. Jim
Thrasher as fullback and Junior Be
lair as halfback show splendid pros
pects in their respective positions.
Mr. Brimm announces that be
cause of the very good results from
the sale of student body tickets, the
pupils of the first six grades will be
given passes to the three home
games. This will give the pupils a
chance to create more school inter
est in the games.
Highway Patrol

blindness are also given, as well as

“None of these tests is tricky." said
Kennedy, “and them who fall for
ordinary reasons may take the test
any number of times."
All new drivers must take these
tests before they will be given drl
vers’ licenses and those who hold
current licenses must also take
them.

Local interests in the Bentozi
