Generals, Madison engage tonight
Similar strengths and con

the drama when the Madison

strong backfield, good ends,

are Senator merits, but lack
of adequate size and speed
will dim their hopes.

Now that the Generals are off on the right foot after their come
back victory over Franklin, we think it’s about time we pointed out
a few staggering facts concerning Grant football mastery.
Over the past 3 years, the Generals have 2 city champion
ships, 1 state title, and have fallen to second once. No team has
defeated us twice and we have recorded 8 shutouts in 26 games.
Actual won-loss record is pretty hard to believe. In those 26
games, we have compiled a 24 win, 1 loss, 1 tie mark. And as a class,
this year’s seniors are 15 wins, no defeats, and they claim the city
junior varsity scoring record.
Defense has been a main staple in the success story. Only 218
points have been scored against us, less than 10 per game.
Offensively, we have “rolled that score up to the sky” to the tune
of 454 points, over twice our opponents’ and an average of about 18
points a game.
Never a school to discriminate, we have trounced everyone in the
last 3 years. Franklin handed us our only defeat, and we have been
particularly hard on Roosevelt and Washington. ;
Colonial players will be out for revenge this yfeaf’P'i 3 years we
have ravaged them at 118-13. The Roughriders got oA Vj little easier,
we have only totaled 84 points, but between those two schools nearly
half our 3-year point total has been amassed.
Following the Franklin game it was easy to see that spirit and
pride are certainly not lacking, so we can probably look forward to
another successful season. And the players are reminded that they
are not just individuals by the sign in the locker room.
Pride in yourself,
Pride in your school,
Pride in your team.
The Portland high school fall
tennis championships will open
Monday, September 19, here and
at the Benson high school courts.
All boys’ singles' and doubles
will be held at the Buckman
courts, while the girl netters will
vie at the Grant courts.
After the conclusion of the
varsity competition, the junior
varsity is tentatively scheduled
to start on September 26.
All those participating in both
varsity and junior varsity are re
quired to report for the drawing
of their first-round opponents at
4 p.m. on the first day of compe
tition. Those failing to do so will
automatically lose by default.
Tennis coach Dan Robinson
said he was unsure of who would
be representing Grant this year.
The Generals, however, could
pose a formidable threat with
Greg Matthews in the singles
and Steve Dole and Dan Pitman
in both the singles and doubles.
All contestants must wear white
clothing, tennis shoes, and bring
two new tennis balls.

We know you, Mr. Right: You’re
the leader who always has the latest
word on the whole scene. And the
truth is—we need you on our side.
Reason? Well, let’s face it tiger, the
continuous combustion engine has a
poor history among thinking people.
That messy mixing of the fuel and the
engine lubricant was just about that
primitive, as was the inferior perform
ance and billowing stench from the ex
haust. Why, Perry Como couldn’t keep
cool in the midst of all that!
But, heads up people, times have
changed! Please take note, for we
know how great your group’s influ
ence is on “right” thinking.
What we are saying is simply this:
When you buy your sportcycle, Think
YAMAHA! Why? Because the mouse
has ROARED. No more hard starting,
messy mixing, billowing exhaust or
ring-a-ding sound. Just a snarling
tiger that will nip a honda’s head off
with one bite. Impossible? Not since
our integral oil injection or tuned ex
haust started to reap the advantages
