Consider for example these comments which appeared in one of our largest Eastern newspapers circulation 700,000 yearly subscription rate $33.80 upon the death of Fri director j.

It showed president Nixon a advisers telling him he ought to Tell folks he knows a Way to hold prices Down but he wont Tell us til after the election. This is the same president that told us he snowed a Way to end the Vit War four years ago Zeke said and All the cartoon proves is that a politician living up to his promises is As hard As kissing a Gal leaning away from you or climbing a sense leaning at you.

I Here a Relief for the student out of school although it often simply Means More school. There a sadness for the parents who hate to see them go and Joy for the Parent that a glad they re finally going. But it certainly is a time when the end becomes a beginning a this week in Andrews. As the year ended we also ended what is usually one of our favorite sporting seasons. We re talking about baseball.

Ruth Mccullough mrs. C. E. Carruth mrs. J. D. Whatley William Mosley. A Little rough. Perhaps it was. But if we did no to care about baseball it would be different. Those were facts. It is the worst baseball season since the first two years that Andrews took part in the sport. And we did lose the All sports trophy in the process. In the years when we won the All sports trophy during the baseball season we also credited the base Baller with that. And there were numerous times that this happened. We also like the group that played baseball this year and the coach that coached the baseball and the fans that cheered for the baseball team. We still think this group of seniors Are special because they broke the longstanding Jinx of not winning District in football. By Spring sports they seemed to kind of fall apart. But we think we can see Many reasons for this. Think about this class. During their four years in High school they have been under three separate administrations and three separate groups of coaches. They have had three different sets of advice rules and suggestions. They have won a lot of things. Both As underclassmen and As seniors and if their Spring sports season did no to come out shining so be it. We can to see that it was particularly anybody a fault but simply a Chain of circumstances that avalanches into a Heap of disappointments. Fortunately the Avalanche did no to really Hurt any of us. It simply made us realize that there Are some problems about Spring sports that need rebuilding in Andrews and we firmly believe that this will be done. When we made the statement that a dismal season ended the baseball boys themselves would be the first to agree that it was not their favorite season. When we said it was the worst record in Many years it was fact and nobody hates it worse than they do. Because there slots of Talent among them. O school la lunch menu mrs. Lillie Mcauley left monday morning on a weeks vacation trip to Breckenridge where she will visit with a daughter and family the Darrell Mccrary and on to Kingsland to visit with another daughter and family or. And mrs. Cal Skaggs and children. She was accompanied As far As Ranger by a sister mrs Ben Hunter of Cove Arkansas who visited Here the past week. Miss Judy Fowler of Abilene formerly of Andrews spent the weekend Here As a guest in the h. G. Lindsey Home. The Lindsey s daughter. Rosalyn of rear and sons of Midland also visited Here sunday. Norman and John Scott bumpers returned thursday from a weeks trip to Sapulpa Seminole and Tulsa okla., where they combined business and pleasure. Tom six left Friday for Joliet Illinois where he will be employed for several weeks by Mobil pipe line company. Or. And mrs. Leroy Jennings returned saturday from Lake Buchannon where they spent the past week vacationing and fishing. The baseball season in this District was wild this year anyway. It ended up in a three Way tie for first Between three teams that had each lost four games. We beat two of them once. The cellar team beat one of them once. Almost every game in the District was one run apart All season. It was ridiculous. There was no great team. Just a Bunch of pretty Good teams. We weren to the Only ones having problems. Kermit and Pecos Are two of the teams in first place and both of their coaches have failed to have their contracts renewed even though they Are tied for the championship. It was that kind of season. Disgruntled baseball fans grumbled All the Way across the District steam after team fell in one run ballgames. Everybody hunted somebody to blame. Nobody happened to think about the fact that everybody was pretty equal in the race and Luck and desire played a big part in who came out on top. So let s not give up on baseball. This is a Good baseball town. Even though there was gloom in Mudville when the mighty Casey struck out. We think that a kind of the Way the Andrews baseball fans feel right . There a gloom in Andrews because the mighty Mustangs struck out. But we still think they re mighty Mustangs and have some great baseball memories of each baseball senior. Do you remember when Randy Willey hit the double in the Dumas game his Junior year that renewed Hope for Andrews and made it look like we were going to get Back to state do you remember when Davey Jones and Cary England hit Back to Back doubles in the Slaughter of Monahans last season that made us get to quit and add insult to injury on a 11-0 Victory in five inning son the ten run Rule do you remember when we Dilly dallied around with fort Stockton nothing to nothing until the final inning and Mickey Matthews hit a Home run into the Light Tower that settled that ballgame 1-0? do you remember when Jimmy Rose batted three for four in the 13-3 insulting win at the end of the Junior season with a decisive Victory he came within a hair of batting four for four. Do you remember when Ronnie Shoemaker nailed one of two Lone hits in the game against Kermit in 1971 on a Day when we just hit the baseball or do you remember this year when Steve Dorman nabbed one of the hits in Kermit that upset the league leading yellow jackets these Are those same boys. As one of them put it himself a i Don t know what happened. We just kind of crashed in the anyway its time for beginnings. We have a school year coming a seasons Hopes and enthusiasm.
