RESOLUTIONS PASSED BY BOARD
OF EDUCATION, GRANGER PUB-
J. M. LAMB HOME BURNS
The following resolutions with res- j
pect to athletics and athletes were
passed unanimously with all members ;
of the board voting at the last regu-
lar meeting of the Board of Education
Wednesday, October 14 , 1925.
1—The board of education stand
solidly for clean athletics in Granger
High School; and are opposed to the
paying of athletes, promising to pay,
or in any way inducing prospective
athletes to enroll in our schools. We
have no place for those students
whose chief aim in coming to our
schools is to play on our teams.
2.—We stand for a rigid enforce-
ment of all rules governing athlet:c
contests of any nature, and have n»
sympathy for any student or person
seeking to avoid those rules. We fa-
vor a strict interpretation of all eli-
gibility rules. Students must pass in
the required amount of scholastic
woi-k to play on the teams repre-
senting Granger, and a student fail-
ing in his or her courses must not j
play on our teams. Class work must
come before athletics in every case.
3—Betting or the placing of money
on athletic contests is not only unlaw- J
ful but is decidedly unsportsmanship-:
like and derogatory to all that our j
schools stand for; therefore, it is or-1
dered that there be no betting op [
placing of money upon any athletic j
contest played upon the school prem-
ises or athletic fields of Granger.

The home of J. M. Lamb burned
about 12:30 o'clock Friday morning,
the origin of which has not been de-
termined. All the costly furnishings
were a complete loss, nothing being
saved. No one was at home at the
time. Mrs. Lamb was visiting her
daughter in Clarksville and Mr. Lamb
left the day before for South Texas
in his car and had gotten as far as
Taylor when informed of his loss.
The Lamb home was one of the
most expensive homes in Granger,
having been constructed about 15
years ago at considerable cost. It
was a two-story structure, built en-
tirely of lumber and the flames, reach-
ing skyward, could not be checked by
the firemen. It could be seen for

TAYLOR HARDWARE MOVES
Austin, Nov. 5.—In explanation of
the suspension of the Wharton High
School by the state executive com-
mittee of the Interscholastic League,
Roy Bedichek, chief of the bureau,
gave out the following statement:
"The Wharton High School was sus-
pended from the Interscholastic Lea-
gue in football for the football season
of 1925 on account of the fact that It
continued to use a football player on
the Wharton team after the superin-
tendent of the schools at Wharton
had been advised that he would not
be eligible at Wharton until he had
secured a statement from his former
superintendent or principal, showing
that he was eligible scholastically at
the school from which he transferred
to Wharton. This suspension was
made under Section 11, Article VIII of
the Constitution and Rules of the Lea-
gue, which provides that a school that
continues to use a man who has been
declared ineligible shall be suspended.
The suspension carries with it the
prohibition of other League members
engaging in football with the sus-
pended school, and any school violat-
ing this rule shall be subject to the
same punishment as was assessed
against the school with which it con-

the intention of the management to j

to sell all. This firm carried a very

every particular. Granger loses a|
