The students of Athena high school
have been showing better school
spirit this year at the football games
than they have shown for many years.
At the Athena-Weston game Friday,
October 19, all the students who were
not on the team did their best to
encourage the boys of the team by
cheering' them on. In the past, the
students very seldom cheered the op
posing side, but this year if the op
posing team made a brilliant play,
our rooters cheered them. We hope
that this pep and good sportsman
ship will be continued and raise the
standard of not only our athletics but
all our student body activities even
higher than they are at present.

team defeated the strong Weston
eleven 12-0 at. Athena, Friday, Octo
In the first quarter Weston kick
ed off to Athena. Neither team came
near to scoring a touchdown, but the
ball was mostly in Weston territory.
The Athena team tried numerous
passes but did not make any success
ful ones. Every one on the Athena
team was playing a consistant game
When the second quarter opened,
Athena continued her aerial attack,
and after a number of successful pas
ses, conbined with off-tackle kicks
and end runs, the ball was placed over
the last chalk line. The try for point
failed. There was no more scoring
this period, although Athena once
marched far into Weston's territory.
When the second half opened, the
Athena men' were determined to fight
for the advantage that they had. Ath
ena still continued her aerial attack
and with several good runs made
another touchdown. The try for
point was blocked. Weston elected
to receive the kick-off, but they were
soon forced to kick.
In the fourth quarter the game
grew a little slower as the fast pace
which had been maintained through
out the game was beginning to tell
on the players of both sides. When
the fourth quarter was about half
over, Weston received a break when
Snider, an end.recovered a fumble and
carried the ball to Athena's 15 yeard
line before being downed. The Ath
ena line held like a stone wall, a pass
was incompleted, and Athena im
mediately took the ball out of the
dangerous territory. The latter part
of the quarter was given mostly to
