The statement of the General

"As Christians we hold that all

of God. We call for the launching

Of Rotary Club
Irvan l.ewis, county tax col-
lector, war guest speaker at the
Tuesday noon meeting of the
llr.eckenridge Rotary .Club at the
YMC.A with vice president fdwin
Pace presiding for the meeting- in
the absence of president. Andy An -
Rankin Williams introduced the
spi aker who spoke briefly on the
collection of taxes and tax funds
in Stephens County. He opened by
remarking, "Business of accounting
in taxes is a big business" con-
tinuing by stating that in this
county alone approximately *!•'<.
000,000 in taxes are set each
year. He added that it is the goal
watching from the sidelines. He is of the department to collect at
nursing a broken ankle sustained I
in an earlier game this season. He !
seemed rather happy with his lot, j
however, as ho was surrounded by :
j beautiful girls in abundant quan-
tities during the half. Ho-hum, such
I is the life of football hero though.
; Co-captains were Bill West and
i Henry Smith.
! The Junior High band was on
| hand for their contribution in the;
form of music. Junior High has i
! its own cheer leaders too, namely.
! Cherry Walker, Carolyn Connor,
Tony Casey, Kay McDaniel. and
Judy Wright. These young ladies
! guided yell activities through the
i:!2 pounds, got the call three times |
to run for extra points, being sue- :
eessful on all three attempts. Jer-
ry Gibson got credit for an extra
point and after Joe Knox had suc-
cessfully carried the ball for an |
extra point only to have it nullified !
by an offside penalty, Jimmy
Wright calmly tossed a pass to
Hilly Wright just to show that it
could be done through the air.
Another extra point was made
when a fumble occured on the at-
tempt and center Ronnie Martin !
fell on it in the Comanche end zone.
from the look on Coach Russell '
Me.Murry's face, one could tell that;
he was rather happy over the
Bucks' defensive efforts. Ninety-
five yards of Comanche's 102 yards j
came during the period when the
Buck subs were holding down the !
fort. Working from a 4-Tm2 de- '
feii.se. it was rather hard fpr Co- !

During the present year he stilt-
ed that new values in oil have
been put into effect in this county
because of the activity in the
north east part of the county.
lie continued that another big
buesisness even in Stephens Coun-
ty is the automobile regestrntion
business. During the ptesent fis-
cal year which will not end until
March of 1956, Lewis stated that
.'1,640 automobiles have been reg-
istered. S72 commerical licenses,
534 tags for farm trucks and 340
for trailers. The county's part of
license revenue will be about $90,-
