ed. The first team they hit that has
a decent pass defense will take
them.
It has been stated what teams will
occupy the three top spots, so what
happens to the other five squads.
They will cause some great football
games while they are killing each
other off in the fight for last place.
In fact a retake on a statement
made last week will again be made—
don‘t miss any more of the league
games than you can help this sea
son.
Proving the above statement Pas
co and Wapato went to work on
each other last Friday night under
the lights at Pasco and the result
from the fans’ point of View was
some real football. In spite of the
fact that both teams smelled to high
heaven, the game was about as
thrilling as should be seen with a
weak blood distributor.'This proves
the belief that two bad teams lash
ing it out can be mistaken for two
top-flight clubs. --
With the help of Felix Perrault,
who in his time was one of the top
line men of ' the conference, watch
;ing the lines of both teams in ac
tion and this column keeping the‘
eye on the backfields for spectacu
‘lar stuff, the more outstanding
,points of the Pasco-Wapato game
were spotted.
The biggest cinch of the year is
that if either of these two squads
hope to rate with Cle Elum or. the
Tappenish Wildcats they had best
go to work on their lines—Cle Elum
isn’t that weak. Frankly either of
the two top shot teams would find
me Pasco and Wapato lines noth
ing more of an obsticle than a para
chute trooper in a dog fight with a
pursuit ship. [Where both Top-Hi
and Cle Elum are going to have
trouble is in stopping those passing
attacks sponsored by both the weak
er teams. If Toppnish expects to
stop the Wapato passing offense
they have a lot of practice ahead.
Wapato hasa much better passing
attack than was turned loose on the
Wildcats by the Warriers of Cle
Elum. Altho Pasco has nothing in
the air except a couple of bad ru
mors, they might even succeed
should they take to the air.
Here is the tip of the season and
other valley clubs should give Top-
Hi a great big thank you for un

side of its line in no position to‘

last a hint of interferance clear-p
ing his way. It took the Cats three ‘
quarters to catch on to this, the
reason being that the right side of
the Warrier line is plenty big. Once
they did get nerve enough to try a
"running play around that side, Per
rault went 20 yards and Johanson
followed through with another big
gain on the next play. .
At Prosser this week the Mus
tangs snapped out of it and held
the powerful Kennewick Lions to
only one touchdown and that is not
doing bad. It should be said, how
ever, that the Mustangs had more
than their share of the breaks. but
then that is half this game of foot
ball. Kennewick was penalized so
much that the net gain made by
that club was nothing and even at
that the Lions are gaining ground.
Prosseron theotherhandseemsto
have snapped out of it and in spite
of the lack of power, the old school
spirit made up the difference.
While on the subject of spirit, it
should be noted that for community
support behind a high school ball
club in any sport, Prosser is years
ahead of the rest of the valley, bar
none. In Prosser an athlete has
little trouble staying in training,
the town people help him by kicking
him off the street at 10. Would that
my home town had some of the
same stuff. , ‘
Sunnyside came througn and
made a close game out of what was
expected to be a wallnaway for El
lensburg. In spite of the fact that
the Bulldogs were much smaller than
[the urizzlys, the fact that Sunny
side lacked the speed of the windy
city club made it a sure thing for
Ellensburg. Howver, when the mal
scores came in and the score for
that game was only 9-6, it was a.
surprise.
One of two things was proved by
this game as was proved by other
games last week. Maybe the
strength of the conference as a
whole is being under wtimated or

AAA He ad to
Address Walla
Walla Meeting
Problems facing Washington
wheat growers will be discussed by
R. M. “Spike” Evans, national AAA
administrator, at a special meetingl
to be held in Walla Walla Saturday,
October 5.
On a special trip through the
Western States, Evans will make his
only stop in Washington at the
Walla Walla meeting and all wheat
farmers of the area are being urged {
to be present at that time. Accom
panying Evans on his western swing
is N. E. Dodo, western regional di
rector for the AAA. The Walla Wal
la meeting is to be held in the
’Grand Hotel and is slated to be
gin at 1:00 o’clock Saturday after
noon.
In making the announcement of
Evans visit to Washington, Henry
B. Ramsey, chairman of the state
AAA committee, pointed out that
the trip was occasioned by the crit
ical wheat export market situation
which vitally affects farmers in this
area. Ramsey declared that the
trend of European developments
have made it highly probable that
the wheat export market will be
seriously affected for years to come,
leaving Washington farmers with
the problem of adjusting their pro
duction to domestic consumption
levels. . .
Evans is expected to deal with
these problems in his Walla Walla
talk in addition to explaining the
provisions of the 1941 AAA program
and discussing the general effect of
the European conflict on American
agriculture. Ramsey stated that far
mers are being urged to attend the
session since, coming directly from
Washington, D. 0., Evans will bring
the answers to many problems
which have been troubling farmers
of Washington during the past year.
