Out Of The Past

First-Ever High School Football Game
Lititz High has a wiser and better football team since that 38-0 defeat at the hands of Palmyra High.
All those red and black gridders needed was experience, and they got it. They may not win the next game against Elizabethtown on Saturday, but we're going to see a scrappier, peppier bunch than we saw last Saturday.
They seemed to have all the confidence in the world when they trotted onto the field. The came the kick off.
Lititz High won the toss and elected to receive. Wertsch caught the ball on downs and Palmyra scored their first touch down on rushes within five minutes.
Lititz was full of fight after that first touch down. That was their first lesson. They got mad. They tore thru that stone wall Palmyra line like tigers, but their experience lacked and they could not score. But it was thrilling to see those boys fight.
As the game progressed they learned and fought harder and harder. Coach Hunter sat motionless on the bench. His eyes followed the ball up and down the gridiron and he rarely spoke. He grit his teeth, bit his lips and clinched his fists till his nails cut into flesh, but he was helpless on the bench since the rules do not allow instructions to pass from the bench to the field.
Just the same, Coach Hunter should be congratulated. He took those boys, who knew absolutely nothing about the game, and converted them, within a month's time, into a fighting squad of gridders who took bumps, cuts and scratches with a smile.
On Saturday, they journey to Elizabethtown to meet the Patton Industrial School eleven of the Masonic Home, and the Saturday following is the big opening game at home. Preparations are being made to put the thing over big.

Or Take Your GPS
Two fair maidens of Warwick recently started in high glee to drive to Akron. They drove, frequently asking the way, but either they did not understand German or else were misdirected, and when they reached what they supposed to be their destination, they found themselves in Ephrata. Moral: Never drive away unless you have a gentleman guide.
