The Red Sox are sponsored liy

like to see several other teams be
formed and go into the league.
Tonight the Red Sox journey
to Dumas to play the Cactus Ord-

is slated for 8 o'clock.
Manager Glass is in the market
for more out of town games with
other independent teams.
Coach Trickey Ward announced

Virgil Patterson, Norman Phillips,
and Jim Scott.
Bice, Brown. Hurt, and Scott
were regulars thi* season. Scott,
at 2M pounds, will be shifted to
the fullback slot.
That means that next year's
team will consist of eleven letter-
men, four of which were regulars.
They are growing rapidly. The
Bulldog line is expected to be
somewhat heavier than this sea-
son's team but the backfield will
probably be lighter.
