an interception. Strege then ran
the ball back about ten yeards.
Earlier in the game Falk had
charged through the line as Ellens
burg was attempting a spinner
play. The Ellensburg half receiv
ed the ball from center, spun
around and handed it to Falk,
Lions' right guard. As Falk was
stopped Lashock took the ball for
another two yards. However the
ball was returned to where Falk
had been stopped and the ball re
mained in Kennewick’s possession.
While the entire Kennewick
squad playing driving football,
several Lions stood out for excep-‘
tional play. Joe Lashock at right
guard, in the opinion of many‘
spectators. played the finest game
he has yet played. Harold Per
kins showed an amazing driving
ability that carried him for big
gains every time he took the ball.
Falk, at right guard, also played
an exceptional game and the op
ponents made little or no yardage
through that side of the line. Lee
Long, whose specialty is a hard
tackle, was outstanding 'for de
fensive play as well as gaining
consistent yardage on ‘oflensive.
It was apparent that the policy
of Coaches George Karamatic and
Jake Schell in putting the boys in
condition paid off. . Emphasizing
cahsthenics and Wind-improving
exercse. the Kennewick squad
was still driving at the end of the
game. A check-up in the dressing
room showed a slightly cut lip and
a minor “charley horse” as the
sum total of Lions' injuries.
Quarterbacking the visitors was
Dave Polng, outstanding basket-‘
ball player for Kennewick last‘
year. Dave also played football;
and baseball. Lee Long called‘
signals for the Lions.

THE KENNEWICK COURIER - REPORTER

tional Employ the Physically Han
dicapped Week October 6-12.
Mayor J. C. Pratt has issued a
proclamation setting aside this
week for observance by Kenne
wick residents. In his proclama
tion the mayor cited the excellent
record of handicapped persons
during the war while the able
bodied were on the fighting fronts.
Pointing out that many veterans
and war workers acquired some
form of handicap as a result of the
war, USES manager Houston said
it is the obligation of everyone to
help handicapped persons to ob
tain employment for which. they
are qualified.
“Few handicapped persons,” he
said, “will accept work which
they are not qualified to perform.
Some ' are qualified for certain
types of work but not aware of
their abilities. . It is the job of the
USES to advise and counsel such
workers, and, when the skill or
ability is found to refer the work
er to an employer who is in need
of the particular skill or ability.
Mr. Houston said that four han
dicapped workers had been referr
ed to jobs in the Kennewick-Pasco
area during the past month. oth
ers are waiting for referral to the
right jobs, he said. Many em
ployers so far have been most co
operative in hiring these workers
but more jobs for the handicapped
are needed to aid applicants at the
USES offices, Mr. Houston said.
Following is Myor Pratt’s proc
lamation:
“Whereas, Victory in World War
II cost us more than 2,000,000 cas
ualties and
“Whereas, there are many mil
lions of handicapped persons in
the United States. many of whom
by their efforts were of great aid
in manufacturing munitions or
providing essential service for the
war effort, and
“Whereas, all of these persons
including disabled veterans of
World War I and II deserve self
supporting, self-respecting jobs in
which they can make useful con
tributions to our communiay. state
and nation.
“Now, therefore. I. J. C. Pratt,
Mayor of the City of Kennewick,
do set aside the week of October
6th to 12th as Employ the Physi
cally Handicapped Week and I call
upon all local officials. all local
employers, all local civic organiza
tions and all ciglizens to assist in
eva'y way possib e, to the end that
it shal be brought to theattention
of all members of our community
that disabled veterans and other
handicapped ci ilians are fully
capable and are performing effic
iently, safely and erlably in
thousands of different occupa
ions.
“And I further urge all em
ployers to place all their job or
ders with the United State Em
ployment Service so that disabled
veterans and other handicapped
workers may be given an oppor
tunity to prove their value in pro
ductive and self-respecting jobs.
“In Witness Whereof, I have
hereunto set my hand and caused
the seal of the City of Kennewick
to be affixed.”
