CLIFTON “CUBS” DOWN ___
THE MOODY TEAM 3-0
In one of the moat exciting games
the season, the Clifton “Cubs"
won their second game Monday after-
noon. From start to finish the game
was a hard struggle. The Clifton boys,
however, had a slight edge on defen-
sive play, but each team managed to
hold the other in the middle of the
—field until the latter part of the game,
when the Clifton team launched a
strong offensive and carried the ball
to the Moody 10-yard line. Here
they were held I or downs, but recov-
ered the ball on a fumble on the next
down just ‘20 yards from the goal.
After calling a line play, the ball was
given to “Little Bob" for a drop-kick,
and it was.a perfect kick, which won
the game for Clifton.

Harris; Head Linesman, Bronstad!

almost 100 per cent strong. Let every
one try and be present Sunday. Let

All worship is not acceptable to
God. It might be such as was ren-
dered by the Pharisees.—Matt. 15:7-9,
or that of the Athenians.—Acts 17:23.
To worship God acceptably we must
worship him in spirit and truth.—
John 4:24. To do that we must have
grace.—Heb. 12:28. Grace teaches
Titus 2:11-12. The word is truth.—
John 17:17. Hence we must study
2 Tim. 2:15.
We are expetcing a great day.
Don’t fail to be there.
This will be the last Sunday for the
second year. Next month begins a
new year. We want to check up and
see what we have accomplished in the

BAYLOR DECIDES THAT
BEAR MASCOT IS JINX
Waco, Texas, Oct. 19.—For sale—
one bear, fairly gentle and about five
months old. If you are in the market
for a real live bear, here is your gold-
en opportunity. Make your price,
come and get . him. For further in-
formation .apply to Jim Crow, assist-
ant football coach at Baylor Univer-
sity, or Boots' Marshall* student man-
ager of the Baylor Bears.
There is no catch to the above. Bay-
lor was presented a live mascot at
the beginning of the football train-
ing season, and that mascot has done
nothing but bring trouble in huge
gobs to the Baylor cause. If the bear
is not sold within the next several
days, it will be given away, and if the
Baylor athletic department can not
give it away, it may pay somebody to
take the animal away. t
Anyway the bear is not going to be
roaming around the Baylor athletic
field when the day of the next confer-
ence game with the Teaxs Aggies
