and to a regional Class B title

downs here to lead his teammates
to a hard earned victory.
Coach Marshall’s big but In-
experienced Indians put up a
game battle, and twice advanced
within the fifteen yard marker,
before losing the ball—once on
downs and once on a fumble.

“Yesterdays”? They are hls-
now. That grudge you carried
so long. That old and terrible
grief. The business loss 7 list bit
of malicious gossip. They're his-
tory now. Yet why do we keep
iem alive today? Do you know
we waste a part of each good
day remembering gnd resenting
over thingd that have departed?
How can we make our yester-
days happy ones? By beginring
today abiding by one of Ood's
Commandments. “Love thy neigh-
bor as thy self." Do unto him
as you wodld have him do unto
We love self a great deal. So
much that we don't have time
for our fellowman.
It would be so easy to smile, or
lend a helping hand. Small
things, but they add up. We of-
ten wait for an opportunity to
do something outstanding for our
neighbor so others can aee. But
It's the small things that make
people love you. Make a habit of
serving others In word and deeds.
If you are one who lives over
your yesterdays and could erase
the dreadful mistakes in your
past. I'm sure the things wore
said and done would be for the
betterment of someone else. Let's
begin today and give all of our
lives to Christ. He 1s ever ready
to bear our burdens and griefs.
If we let God’s wlll be done
and not ours In our dally living
—then all of our yesterdays will
be happy ones.

The final tally was made easy
when the Indians failed to kick
on fourth down midway In the
final period—and the visitors
took over on the 35-yard marker.
From that point, Gibson scooted
through the middle for the tally
on the first play.
