HOWE, GRAYSON COUNTY, TEXAS, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1968
Billy Harrel day is supposed
to be a secret insofar as Billy
Harrell is concerned, until the
1 o’clock assembly program to-
day. The public is invited to at-
tend, but please, donrt call the
Harrells to congratulate them,
until after the program!
Seems several transplated
area citizens have outstanding
football teams “back in the old
Melba Spegal over at Howe
State says her home town team,
in Artesia, New Mexico, has
won eighteen in a row.
Like we said last week though,
they haven’t played Howe yet.
Enjoyed a batch of hot tamales
one night last week during some
of the chili weather we’ve had.
Good hot tamales are hard to
find — especially in a can.
Guess it has something to do
with some of the first ones we
ever encountered, made and
sold on the southeast comer of
the square in Sherman by a
gentleman with a push-cart
Now those wtere hot tamales—
at 35 cents per dozen if we re-
member correctly, and several
times we spent our last peso on
the things. In fact, one night we
decided to blow our interurban
fare to Van Alstyne on a batch
of the tamales, and hitcxfnike a
ride home. Found out the hard
way that people won’t pick up
hitchhikers at night.
Oh, well, arrived home in time
for school the next morning.
Not many people would walk
15 miles for a hot tamale.
We’ve wondered several times
what ever happened to the street
merchant—he seemed to be do-
ing well in the business. At
first, he could be seen pushing
his cart to the location; then he
began bringing the cart and his
wares in the trunk of an old
car, and before he left the loca-
tion, there was a new car park-
ed near his corner.

Six Seniors Play
Final Game Here
Six Howe seniors will be play-
ing their final high school foot-
ball game here Friday, when
Allen’s Eagles invade Bulldlog
territory for the season finale.
The seniors are Bobby Ham-
ilton, Jimmy Watson, Bill Cloud
Dale Bonner, John Keeton and
A sparse group of fans were
present last Friday night to
see the Howe Bulldogs post the
sixth win of the ’68 season. Howe
defeated the Quinlan Panthers,
22-6 for a 2-1 district record,
and will face Allen’s Eagles Fri-
day night for the finale. The
game was originally scheduled
with Allen for Saturday night,
but has been changed to Friday,
Coach Norman Dickey said. .
The Bulldogs came from be-
hind last week to overcome the
visiting Quinlan team. The Pan-
thers scored first on a 60-yard
drive, after regaining posses-
sion on a Howe penalty on a
punting effort by the visitors.
Quinlan QB Will Steger account-
ed for the score on a keeper.
Two point conversion attempt
Howe took the kick from the
20 and marched 80 yards in 14
plays to knot the score, with
Jim Watson going in from the
two. Bad pass from center on
the conversion attempt left the
score tied at 6-6, which stood
at halftime. Howe penetrated to
the Quinlan 2 yard line on one
other trip before the half, but
fumbled the pigskin into the end
zone on the next play, with the
Quinlan tossed nine aerials in
the first two quarters, with no
completions and one intercep-
tion, by Bulldog Johnny Trox-
