THE WESTERNER WORLD
Westerners To Face Plainview In Non-Conference Battle Tonight
Lubbock High’s Westerners and
Plainview’s Bulldogs, who have
been battling on the gridiron for
more than 30 years, will renew
their ancient rivalry here at 8 o’-
clock tonight in a feature non-
conference encounter at Texas
Tech’s Jones stadium.
“If weather conditions are fav-
orable, it is very possible to have
a record breaking attendance for
the first game of the season.” said
Mr. E. J. (Pinky) Lowrey, ath-
letic business manager.
At press time, there had been
approximately 6,100 season tic-
kets sold and over 1000 activity
books sold to students. Tickets
were also being sold at the jun-
ior high schools.
Lubbock and Plainview have
battled on equal terms the last 10
years; each winning five games.
Four of the five Westerner wins
have been since Coach Pat Pat-
tison top’^o^er at Lubbock in 19-
Plainview, with 13 returning
lettermen and a half-dozen regu-
lars, looms as a stiff test for the
youthful Westerners. The Bull-
dogs boast two tackles who beat
the 200-pound mark. Jimmy
Jameson tips the scales at 245 and
Hubert Kaylor weighs in at 220.
Another returning regular is 190-
pound guard Billy Bristol.
The Bulldog backfield will lack
the size and experience that it
boasted last season, but it fields
a speedier group of carriers led by
quarterback Lonnie Holland, full-
back Ben Smith and halfback Don
Lubbock wil start the Plain-
view batle using all returning let-
termen with the exception of
Benny McCollum, at the right
end position. Mike Brady will
start at the left end position;
James Middleton and Jimmy Gaf-
ford, tackles; Dick Lowrey and
Harold Teal, guards; and Jerry
The offensive backfield will be
made up of Sammy Garner and
Richard Lindsey, halfbacks; Jim-
my Welch, fullback; and either
Buddy Hill or Jimmy Haynie, at
the quarterback slot.

Since September 1, every Lub-
bock Weserner team member has
had the words, “Get a Bulldog”
. formed on his lips. At last, the
chance has come for Lubbock to
actually “Get a Bulldog.” After
hour upon hour of hard, rugged
practice, the Westerners are at
last ready for battle.
This opening game with Plain-
view tonight has chances of
breaking last year’s opening at-
tendance. Season tickets were on
sale the last part of the summer
for last year’s ticket holders.
More season tickets have been
sold this year than any previous
year, and the students have faith-
fully supported their team by
buying over one thousand activ-
ity books. Yes, this season has
great promise of breaking all re-
cords set in the past.
Lubbock was introduced to pro-
fessional football for the first
time last Saturday night. A high-
strung Chicago Cardinal team ov-
erpowed an amateur Camp Polk,
Louisiana, squad here in an exi-
The Cardinal squad proved' to be
one of the better teams ever to
perform before Lubbock fans.
Great interest was shown by Lub-
bock fans about the ability of Jer-
rell Price and Bil Cross.

Injury To Be Ready
In Tonight's Game
“Luckily, we have only one in-
jury at the present time,” stated
Head Football Coach Pat Patti-
son, knocking on his wood topped
desk, “and he will be ready to
play Friday night.”
The injury Coach Pat was
speaking of is that of John Bloc-
ker, Westerner halfback. John
has a sprained ankle received
during one of the bone-crushing
scrimmages the team went
through last week. Though John
missed several days of work-out,
he is expected to be in fine shape
when the Westerners tangle with
the Plainview “Bulldogs'” tonight.
Other old injuries include those
of Robert Rawls and Jerry Martin
Rawls, a defensive regular last
year, will miss this entire season
with a shoulder injury received
during spring training.
Martin, Westerner center, is
wearing a nose guard because of
a fractured nose. The damage to
Martin was done last season.

All of you athletic-minded girls
should be interested in joining
Westernettes this year. Before
the sophomores and new students
jump to conclusions, maybe we
should make it clear that this is
not Lubbock High’s girl football
team. The Westernettes is a club
for girls sports enthusiasts who
meet one day every other week
after school. At this time, the
members may play volley ball,
basketball, or ping-pong; square
dance; or do just about anything
else pertaining to sports.
You don’t need to have muscles
or even brains to be a member al-
though both help. You don’t ev-
en have to be taking P. E. All you
have to do is be a girl. It’s lots of
fun, and is usually one of the
largest and most popular of Lub-
bock High’s clubs.
Something new has been added
to the girls’ physical education
program this year. Tap dancing
has been made one of the units
to be taught in the classes. Mrs.
Wilson and Mrs. Pittman have
already started it as Unit I, de-
voting half of each period to tap,
Tryouts for Golfers
Of LHS Held Here
Tryouts began Monday and last
through today at Meadowbrooks
Golf course for all boys who want
to play on Lubbock High school’s
golf team this yar.
The boys, under the direction
of Mr. O. B. Poole, golf instruc-
tor, are working in three-somes,
shooting as many holes as they
want to each day. The top six
will qualify as the first team, but
others may challenge their lead-
ership later on.
Out of the six boys on last
year’s first team, five returned
to try out this year. They are
Stanley Black, ’52 captain, and
John Glover, seniors; and K. D.
Watson, Joe Bob Martin, and Ro-
bert Madden, juniors.
and the other half to exercises.
Everyone was requested to buy
eight-for-a-nickel chair gliders to
use as taps. As Mrs. Pittman
pointed out, it will be very inex-
pensive unless you’re a centipede.
We believe tap dancing, or “ry-
thms,” as the teachers call it
will go over big with everyone.
