Is the cheering section an import
ant feature of a game? It is a very
important feature for it cheers the
players to further efforts and shows
them that the school is still behind
them and gives the public the general
school attitude. It is not difficult to
determine the attitude of the non-
participating pupils. The indifferent,
obstinate, bashful, and other char
acteristics are brought to light in the
cheering section. The yell leader,
while he may be largely at fault,, is
not the person to lay all the blame on
for if the members of the Student
Body refuse to yell or behave them
selves he can hot force them to. How
are the students admitted to games?
They are admitted because they have
bought student body tickets. These
tickets entitle them to admittance to
all athletic contests at a much reduc
ed rate. It is understood that in using
these tickets they will sit in the
yelling section as set off by the yell
leader. If they do not sit in this sec
tion and are admitted under student
body tickets they should be forced to
sit there or give up their student
body tickets. Second, behave like
gentlemen and ladies at all times in
this section. People come from many
places to these games. They get
their only glimpse of our town from
these games. They undoubtedly judge
us by our behavior while there
Lone "cat-calls," "boos," and other
forms of nonsense should not be tol
erated in the yelling section. Third,
the Student Body members should as
sist in the yelling. ' Their yelling
should be consistent and consolidated
and not individual or of the razzing
type. Any student or students who
do not wish to live up to these condi
tions, which are neither tyrannical
nor overbearing, should be asked to
give up his student body ticket and
buy his ticket to the games as any
other individual. This is the only
way that Athena Hi school will ever
have a successful yelling section that
will be a pridei to the school instead
of a question mark.
The Prescott team came to Athena
Friday and played the high school
team. The Prescott team proved too
much for the boys and carried away
a victory of 22-13.
The game was nip and tuck all
through the first half and both .teams
showed wonderful basketball. In the
last half the boys could not keep up
with the Prescott team and dropped
gradually behind. V
The following boys started for Ath
ena: Huff man; center; Myrick and
Jenkins, forwards; Crowley and Rog
The substitutions were: Jack Moore
for Jenkins, and Ralph Moore for
The girls' basketball team met the
Prescott team on the local floor last
Friday. The Athena girls started
out well, they had made two baskets
before Prescott hardly realized what
was happening. But then the luck
began to change and Prescott Btarted
rolling in baskets one after the other,
and by the time the game ended,
Prescott had a score of 28 to Athena's
18. At the biginning of the third
quarter the game became rough. The
results are, the Athena team has one
girl with a sprained wrist and one
with a black and blue nose.
An enjoyable assembly was held
Friday afternoon in the school audi
torium. Christmas carols were sung
to create tf "eal Christmas spirit
Each student was presented with a
bag of candy which was a gift from
the student body.
The vodvil, given by the Junior and

in pleasing the crowd and financially.

It's a Wolverine I
Bends like Rubber
Outwears Any Other Shoe !
A FLEXIBLE sole that's kind to
your feet .... that yields
quickly and cradles your foot
comfortably when you sloop or
kneel that's what this Wolverine
Horsehide Work Shoe does to
make your day's work easier.
If you've never worn a Wol
verine Horsehide Work Shoe you
have a treat in store for you.
You'd hardly believe work shoes
could stay so soft, wear so long.
Wolverine uppers do stay soft.
They are scuff-proof. Acid con
ditions that quickly eat the uppers
of ordinary work shoes don't fas
a Wolverine upper. And they .
wear longer because they're made
oi the recognized longest wearing
leather Shell Horsehide.
We suggest that you come tn
today and try on a pair of Wol
' vermes without obligation to buy.
Your favorite style is here, too
ankle lengths to knee highs. And
all these extra features cost no
more than you'd pay for any
good work shoe.
