The Astoria High School and
Owapunpun football teams will
clash this afternoon. That the game
will be fairly even and hotly con
tested, is an assured fact The
Owapunpun team is composed of

outweighs the High School boys, 10
or 15 Dotinds to the man. ,
Several wairrni wer mate vqtr

tne uwapunpun team.
Thus it is seen that the High
School is seriously weakened, but
the student supporters and friends
hope for the best and as the Hikh
School team has the reputation of
being "last ditch fighters," never
giving up until the whistle blows,
they hope to add another victory to
their list. The line-up is as follows;
