President Dwight D. Eisenhower put it in an- other way: "Patriotism means equipped forces and a prepared citizenry. Moral stamina means more energy and more productivity, on the farm and in the factory. Love of liberty means the guarding of every resource that makes freedom possible--from the sanctity of our families and the wealth of our soil to the genius of our scientists. And so each citi- zen plays an indispensible role." The advice Andrew Johnson gave in 1866 holds true today: "The time has come to take the Consti- tution down, to unroll it, to reread'it, and to under- stand its provisions thoroughly." And one way in which every American adult can publicly demonstrate his citizenship is to register and vote in the November election! This is the fundamental test of a good citizen. In the first scrimmage game of the season last Friday night, Teague romped over the Malakoff Tigers almost at will. The enemy crossed over into pay dirt four times while the local boys were working to get their one and only score. Coach Ronald Speed expres- sed displeasure at the perform- ances of the Tigers and said the boys were going to have to work harder and put more spirit in their efforts. "We are going to have to fight for our lives this year," Speed said. "I see it more and more each day and if we make a showing in district, we are going to have to knuckle down and work." Scouting has been going on since the first work-outs be- gan some three weeks ago and all indications points to a rough schedule for the Tigers. Their opening game will be with Royce City next Friday night on the enemy field. III I Royce is known t~ have scrim- maged once and defeated their opponents. The Tiger:< ~:tr'en:.:ih will be put to the te.s~, in :he opener. SPECIAL! For our Continental Auto lnsureds, I Dime Two Aspirins EROEHCY PHOHE HU DER TO CALL COLLECT IH CASE OF ACClgEHT.

"The boys are putting their all into the game," he said. Trinidad will open the season with Venus on enemy's field on Friday, 13. Last year, Venus was thorn in the Trojan's side well as the other teams district, arid the local will he out for revenge in opening game. "The boys are looking real good in their work-outs," Coach James Abel said Tues- day afternoon when discussing the coming football season of the Trinidad Trojans. Like all coaches facing the same problem, Abel said he wished he had a little more weight in his squad, however, after figuring the weight of the t~ssible starting line-up, he was pleasantly surprised to find the average at ~slightly over 146 pounds. (if the 12 Trojans now work- ing out daily, eight are return- ing lettermen. They include Gary Fleming, Roy Staafield, Eddie Grimes, Joe Mitchum, Kenny Sparks, Julius Steven- son. Everett Berry and Wyle McClintoek. Two of the players that were expected to be in the starting line-up throughout the season, will have only limited partic- ipation. Gary Fleming is ham- pered with a bad knee, injur- ed last year in track, and is expected to undergo surgery for correction of the trouble spot in the near future. Wayne Patterson will remain on the bench for sometime while he is recuperating from a tonsil- lectomy performed last week. When asked the outlook for the 1968 Trojans, Abel com- mented that "we will just have to wait and see." The squad is n~w to Abel as well as the district as this is his first year in Trinidad. Unfamiliar with past history of the opposing teams, he was reluctant to dis- cuss or hazard a guess as to which would be the most likely to win district.
