with an automobile accident while en-
route to this Beeville-Edna game, Fri-
day, November 8th.' We had 'hoped to

tion and a result few Tickets, were
sold at the gate on Ftiilay night. How-
ever Hie." ytdvunce sale of tickets, in-
cluding donations, w-as very good. *-
'Ten tickets were left at the little
town of Kerlrair where the accident
occurred. The girls of that school
sold I lie tickets over and oyer. We
mention this case in particular be-
cause tliese children worked as hard
as any one to make Hit- sale a success.
•Our own school patrons, • eltisseBf,
business'men mid fl iends are to be es-
peijull-y commended for the fine spirit
of cooperation shown in this campaign.
Many of them gave their time in ad-
vertising tlie game, selling tickets, and
by offering 'helpful advice. KW, above
everything, they gave freely of their
means, one can travel far "and wide
and he will not find another communi-
ty like ours. We who work in it, are
glad to call Edna our home and Edna
[icople our people and friends. I, as
a spokesmen of the schools and of the
families concerned in the accident, wish
to thank anil offer commendation to

Cowboy Team Much Improved.
Those vvlio saw the--latest. Cowboy
.CLUnbiiitt-tioiiL assembled by Coaches
Pearce and Eimmermuu in action Fri-
-duy night are praising the team as the
best in the district. In licking Vlc-
iona under the lights last Friday1
night, the Cosyhoys showed a power-
house offense that was beautiful to be-
hold. So well did the power plays
work that the Cowboys found it tm<
necessary to pass aud; were called oh
to punt ouly ouce during the entire
gaiue. We believe the team showed
better blocking and |aekiing than we
liavg ever seentby a Class li high school
team. The defense was as potent- as
the offense. The Stiugarees were un
ahle to muster but a -single lit'st down,
gaining two through penalties. Fans,
tiffs is the type of team you will see iu j
action against our traditional foes, the
Cuero Gobblers, tomorrpvv.
