Juniors Tie Groveton 6-6.
The Junior Bulldogs got
their first taste of real com-
petition last Thursday, and
played a creditable brand of
football in tying the Groveton
Redskins 6-6. The Indians
drew firs tblood when Scott,
great little coton-headed, bare-
footed quarterback, took the
ball on his own 45 yard line
and out-ran the entire Corri-
gan team to score. He failed
to make the try for point.
Groveton kicked off, held the
Bulldogs for four downs, and
started rampaging again.
Scott and King took the
ball down the field where
Scott took it over again on a
43-yard jaunt, only to have
it called back. This break
I epped the Bulldogs up and
they started playing the In-
dians off their feet. With Jim
Swann and John D. Stewart
tossing the leather to Pullen.
Thomas and Spain, they ad-
vanced down the field but
could not score in the first
quarter. Midway in the sec-
ond, Stewart pitched a pass
to Thomas, who took the ball
in full stride, eluded the saf-
ety man, and ran about 50
yards before being brought
down by the speedy Scott. The
Bulldogs did not give up,
however, and a fe wplays la-
ter a pass from Stewart to
Pullen tied the score and also
ended the scoring for both
The Canines outplayed the
Groveton lads so badly in the
last half it was pitiful, up un-
til they got in scoring posit-
ion, where they would lose
their punch every time. Jim!
(Uniform) Swann played a I
whale of a game to be the
second smallest boy on the
squad, and would have com-!
pleted more passes had the
blocking been better. John D. |
Stewart, great little quarter-
back. also threw osme nice
passes, including the one that |
went over the goal .and real-1
!y earned his salt.. Too much
credit cannot be given Len
Evans, Roy Andrews and Joe 1

their share on defense, and j
Foy Kellow did more dam-
age at the center position j

Highway first aid stations, set u, .f
the Rod Cross to give emergency care
to victims of traffic accidents, are sav-
ing lives, according to James L. Fiesor,
vice chairman in charge of domestic
“More than 1,000 of onr emergency
posts are already operating in 47 states
and thousands of otln»rs will soon he
established at key points along Amer-
ica’s highways,” Mr. Fieser stated.
The Red Cross highway posts are
will ho equipped with flrst aid kits.
| Drivers and crews will take courses in
both standard and advanced first aid,
and each truck will he identified as a
Red Cross mobile unit. More than a
| hundred trucks are already operating.
"The highway polieo of eight states
who have finished first aid training will
. join this army mobilized to cut accl*
J dent fatalities and prevent complica-
tion of minor injuries through mishan-
I dling at the scene of accident,” Mr.
“We receive reports from our fi st
aid stations daily, telling of essential
care given to traffic casualties on the
spot and of lives actually saved.”
This and tunny other Red Cross pro-
grams of equal value are supported by
the people of America during the an-
nual Roll Call for members. This year
the Roll Call will be held from Novem-
ber ll to 86.

That European travel agen-
cies are becoming interested
in the recreational attractions
of Texas is evidenced by the
numerous requests being re-
ceived by the Texas Planning
Board for information and
photographs. The latest re-
quest for such information
came from one of the world’s
largest steamship companies, i
the fact that there has been a 150 per
cent Increase in rural traffic fatalities
during the past twelve years.
The project was Initiated last year
on a national scale as a practical ap-
proach to the highway accident prob-
lem. The Red Cross felt that it could
best apply its strength by succoring
these who continue to be injured pend-
ing a reduction in the highway accident
rate through legislation and safety edu-
“Our program brings flrst aid skill
to the scene of accident in an effort to
reduce the number of persons killed
and maimed in automobile mishaps,” J
Mr. Fieser said. “Our highway first aid-
ers are not medical meh in any sense,
but it is their job to turn the injured
over tii the medical profession In the
bust shape possible.”
The Red Cross highway posts are es-
tablished at gasoline service stations,
tourist homes, rural police and fire de-
partments. The personnel of the pests
are trained bv the Red Cross In first
aid, standard first aid equipment is in-
stalled at each station, and identifying
signs for the benefit of motorists are j
erected beside the highway at ho*k ap- I
proaches to the station. **
The attendants of these roaasid® 1
units who qualify as first aiders volu:
toer their services through the Red
Cross and may under no circumstances
accept pay for caring f«r the injured.
To complement the highway flrst aid
stations, the Red Cross has announced
formation of mobile units Several thou-
sand trucks which regularly ply the
highway in the course of routine work
