Football Game At
Eagle Lake Friday
We we want to see at least 300
Schulenburg people in Eagle
Lake next Friday afternoon to
help the Schulenburg Football
Team win. This is going to be
the most trying game this school
will have to play this year. The
boys need all the encouragement
they can get.
Last Friday Eagle Lake and
Bay City played a 0 to 0 game,
neither side could get the ball
out of the middle of the field.
The Bay City folks came to Eagle
Lake on a special train,that's the
way they back up their team.
Eagle Lake turns out solid for
the games. What will Schulen-
burg do? Will they be found
wanting? We hope not. Folks
if we win this game we will be
champions of this district with-
out a question, we can eaisly de-
feat the other opponents we are
scheduled to meet, but this game
Friday will be hard, we are go-
ing up against a real football
squad, which has been coached
by an old vetran of many years
high school and college training.
We beleive and firmly so, that
we can come back from Eagle
Lake with theic scalp dangling
besides the one& from La Grange,
Weimar and Hallettsville'
Schulenburg is getting a world
of advertising and publicity out
of its football team this year.
We are being discussed where-
ever football is mentioned ip this
section. The fact N that both
Bay City and Eagle Lake have
been beat this year, and that we
have not makes usvthink that we
have the better team.
Really folks its very important
that everyone owning an auto in-
vite everyone else to join them
and go down for the game, the
road is' a good highway all the
We think school should be tur-
ned out early enough so that the
rootiug squad can get to go. If
this is done, drive by the school
and ptek up a load of students
and see that the faculty all have
a way. Lets win this game.
Team we are with you, for you,

On Friday night, Miss Emmie
Schlottmann was surprisingly
named honoree for a miscellan-
eous phower, given by a number
of friends at the home of her

thanking each and everyone who
so kindly remembered her.

The cotton receipts since the
drop in the price of cotton have
practically stopped. Only a few
bales being received each day.
It is estimated by some cotton
men that there are aroUnd 1000
bales being held off the market
Local receipts so far this sea-
son are 4800 bales, this includes
cotton which has already been
sold. It is a safe estimate to
say that local cotton produced
here will run not less than 5500
The local compress (ias com-
pressed between 14,000 and
15,000 bales of cotton, most of
this coming from towns ranging
from 6 to 40 miles distant. •
The cotton market stagged a
good re action the previous week
gaining considerable of its loss.
But the early part of this week
it started slumping again.
The cotton men all claim cot-
ton is very cheap and should be
bought at around present levels.
If they are correct we will prob-
ably see a little better price be*
fore many months. If they are
wrong we will see a lower price.
Oil Well Getting Deeper
The Russek No. 1 now being
drilled about a mile from the
city is down below a depth of
800 feet this Thurs lay morning.
The drilling crew are working
hard. No indications of any
kind have been encountered
thus far. Several pockets of
surface gas were struck but
this,does not indicate anything
as this is found in nearly every
The oil company is getting its
supply of oil from the Magnolia
pipe line station here.
The resumption of drilling
operations means about six
more men here on the payroll,
all of which helps some. But if
oil should be struck it would
mean a l?ig thing for this town.
We have hopes of the highest of
course, but the ratio of dry holes
in wild terrritory like this is
very high. It would be perhaps

is being tested out by. a number
of firms who beleive there is oil
here. They are spending large
sums of money to test our lands.
It is rumored that other oper-
ations which have been promised
for a long time will take place
before long. We hope this mat-
erailizes, but advise our readers
and people to keep their better
judgment and not get excited or
go to investing money which
they cannot afford to lose or
throw away. The chances are
so slim, that its not even a gam-

on his farm to the Sticker office

meal for any one. He has a large
number of trees with this size
pecans on them. He says the
trees are young, but he will get
around 50 pounds this year, of
the big fellows. He also has a
number of trees with the reg*
ular wild pecans.
One Pas but to put the ordinary
wildj pec an beside the grafted
one to realize what a difference
We have some of these pecans
on display at the Sticker office,
anyone interested can come
and see them.
We thank Mr. Marek for the
generous sample left at our of-
fice, the fruit is full and the fla-
vor most delicious.

Hallettsville 19 to 0
In one of the most thrilling
football games witnessed in this
section this season, Schulenburg
defeated the Hallettsville team
in their City Friday afternoon
19 to 0.
The game was 6 t.Q 0 until the
last quarter when the Schulen-
burg bunch decided it was time
to get busy. During the last
quarter ^ the four horsemen,,
Baumgarten, Steinmann, Mit-
chon and Merrem with the line
in front pushing things down
swept down the field like a hurri-
cane, nothing could 'stop them.
They never used more than one
seldom two downs to make their
10 yards. The first touch down
was made by Mitchon who did
some of the finest playing ever
witnessed in a High school team.
At pne time he was dragging
two men stiff armed two others
and still made his gain of five
yards. Merrem made the other
two touchdowns in wonderful
end runs fcr long distances each
time. He had the other three
horsemen running perfect in-
terference ahead of him knock-
ing everything out of the way as
he went across^ the goal. Had
the game lasted another minuts
we would have had another
Ouv line is the finest in this
section, the boys hold. Out of
the three conference games play-
ed no one has crossed our goal
line neither has it ever been in
danger. Our opponents have
not been able to get through the
line. They hold like an iron wall.
This line worked perfectly in the
last quarter on the offense they
knocked down the first row per-
fectly then as the horsemen
came with the second line of pro-
tection to Merrem little opposi-
tion was encountered that could
not be put away by these bog
Every man In the team played
like a veteran and deserves much
praise., Every father and moth-
er should be proud of their sons
The school faculty, student body
and everyone iu town is wild
about our team. The Boys fight
and don't know what defeat
means. They never slow up but

the boys are good sports, they
will give an account of themsel-

In writting up these games
we don't want our readers
especially those who do not un-
derstand football to think be-
cause we mention a few names
mat these men are the stars or
whole team. The back field car-
ries the ball naturally they come
up for mention more. Its like
base ball, the pitcher and batter
or the two interesting points as
everything depends on them in a
way. If the pitcher strikes his
men all out, he don't need the
balance Qf the team, but be-
cause every man is liable to bit
and any one of the other players
saves th^ game they are just as
important a part as the pitcher.

one of them play their part in ||
every play that is made. Watch |1|K
