Nearly everybody has a business
or a hobby that they are adept at and
know better than the average person
A football referee or any athletic of
ficial has generally made a study of
sport rules and is versed in their
knowledge. Sometimes he is 'wrong
but as a rule he knows the game bet
ter than the players who played in
the days of "nose guards' and the
"flying wedge" or those who- have
never played the game. Somebody is
always "crying" about some imagin
ary bad desision. The amateur sport
should be free from this nagging
form of criticism. Nothing is more
disgusting to the average spectator
than loud complaints of "kill the ref
eree" and the like. The spectators
are not in a position to see the game
as accurately as the official nor to
interpret the action clearly if they
could. There is nothing so very im
portant in high school athletics but
the fun that is had and if this fun is
spoiled the entire game loses its value
to the spectator and the player.

The game with Kennewick Friday
was good. The opponent was the
best team that Athena has run into
this season. The game was hard
fought by both sides but Kennewick
received a surprise when tne game
ended 7-0 in favor of the local boys,
Kennewick expected to have the game
by a wide . margin, but instead the
teams were well matched and there
was no scoring till the last quarter
when with about two minutes to play
Athena scored a touchdown.
Myrick showed up well on the of
fensive, carrying the ball for several
long gains. Arthur Crowley, the
dashing quarter, who was showing up
well on both offensive and defensive,
was hurt and was taken out of the
game. This slowed the tear) up some.
what, but they had the real old school
This was the last game of the
season and the team was backed to
the 'limit, not only by the studeni
body, but by the town as a whole.
The boys had to win, and they did!
