Election day has arrived and has
caused quite a stir here in school as
well as among the older folks. If
the students of today take as much
interest in the future elections as
they do today, there will be no com
plaint that the citizens of the united
States are backward about voting.
The lives, and the public services ren
dered by the candidates of both par
ties for president and vice-president,
have been studied and debated upon
so that the students have a good idea
of the personal merits of all the
candidates and are able to vote in
telligently for their choice of candidates.

J. F. KERSHAW,
Attionn ViicrVi ReVinnl football team
defeated Waitsburg Hi team Friday,
November 2, on tne local grounds,
6-0. The field was wet and slippery,
so the game was full of fumbles and
Athena, kicked off to Waitsburg at
the opening quarter. Waitsburg was
forced to kick. Neither team could
make much yardage, so a great deal
of punting was done. Waitsburg
completed several good passes, but
was unable to follow! up this ad
vantage. The second period was still a punt
ing duel, except now and then when
Waitsburg completed passes. Waits
burg drove .to Athena's 30 yard line
once but was then held for downs.
The second half opened with Ath
ena receiving the ball at the kick off.
Athena was held for downs and was
forced to punt. Waitsburg started
throwing passes again, but Athena
was not to be caught napping again,
and Waitsburg did not complete any
more passes. Athena completed sev
eral passes for first downs but was
held and forced to kick.
The play in the fourth quarter was
mostly in midfield. It was beginning
to get dark and a lot of punting was
done. With about one . minute and
a half to play Athena threw Waits
burg for a loss twice and blocked a
kick on Waitsburg's 40 yard line. On
successive, runs by Myrick and Pitt-
man the ball was taken to Waits
burg's 5 yard line with first down
and five yards for a touchdown, it
took four downs to buck it over, but
on the fourth down it was bucked
over right guard and tackle for a
touchdown just as the gun shot end
ed the game. The kick for point
after tpuchdown failed when it hit
one of the upright goal posts and
