The score at the end of the third quarter was Florala 6 and Opp 0. 4th QUARTER Early in the fourth quarter, Florala started to move the ball from deep in their own territory. Good runs by Mad- dox, J. Owens and George Par- ker moved the ball upfield and allowed the clock to tick off valuable minutes. Opp had their opportunities to move the ball late in the' quarter, aided by two pass interference calls against Florala. The Opp threat was ended for good on a pass in- terception by Herman Owens, Wildcat offense took the ball, after the interception, and drove the ball to the Opp one-yard line, but was forced to give it up on downs. The game had been decided as the Wildcat defense held in the closing se- conds and Florala had its third victory. Florala 6 - Opp 0. Coach Terry stated to theQB Club Monday night that the de- fense did a good job Friday night against Opp. Re pointed out Victor Weeks and John Anthony as having good games, he said the upcoming game with Geor- giana could decide the Area championship, as both teams are undefeated in Area play and a defeat for either team would put them out of the competition for the championship. with two minutes 45 seconds Georgiana is led by All-Am- left in the fourth quarter. The erican Len Campbell at quar- terback and will probably be the best 2A opponent Florala will face all year. This is a championship game and can not end in a tie. Gametimeis7:30.

With Morris Myerson The Pee-Wee Football season got off to a smashing start Saturday night at Matthews Sta- dium with more than I00 boys participating from Florala, Lockhart, Paxton and Laurel Hill. A really great crowd of parents and supporters turned out for the jamboree. RAMS VS. COWBOYS .... the final game of the Saturday night jamboree featured the po- werful running of Ram's Greg Peterson and Shane Davis, ov- erpowering the Cowboys by a score of 20-6. The never-say- die cowboys scored their lone TD in the last quarter on an aerial from Dave Johnson to PACKER-RAM TILT .....Newton Peters. In the first game of the jam- boree, the aroused Packers, after falling behind the Rams (6-0) fought back on the arm of "Willie Joe" Andy Town- send aerials to "Glue Fin- gered" Greg Hutcheson for two TD's, making the final score 12 - 6 in favor of the Packers. PACKER-COWBOY BATTLE --The second game saw the fired up Cowboys, led by"Gen- eral" Dave Johnson, lasso the Packers to the tune of 6 - 0. The Cowboy lone TD was set up-by a Curt Zessin run to the four yard line, after which Dave Johnson took it in for the score. Bo Hattaway's 60 yd. run, after picking up a Packer fumble, sealed the vic- tory. TIGER-JET CLASH -- In the Tiger-Jet classic, jet su- perstars Kenney Maraman, Herb Maraman and Keith Owens made one touchdown each and Herb ran for two point conv- ersions on two of the three TD's for a 22-8 victory. Ken- ny ran for a 30 yd. TD while his brother, broke four tackles on a long run to score. Keith Owens snagged a pass from quarterback Maraman, and breezed in for the score. ~'he Tiger score came on a beautiful run by Mark Cassady when he broke through the mid- dle to run 60 yards for the TD. Quarterback James Flem- ming ran for the 2 pt. conver- sion. NEWS OF INTEREST CONTINUED FROM FRONT THE FLORALA NEWS GETS GOOD COMMENTS AS GENERAL RULE I had a bad week a while back, and mentioned in this column that all I had heard was complaints." But, after I had written that, the same week, a number of peopl? commented on the paper, favorably. I find that most people love The Florala News and those who don't read it religiously - if for no other reason, just to see how many errors they can find. For what ever reason, we're glad you read this newspaper. You know a newspaper is only as good as its townspeople. Your accomplishments, goals and aspirations reflect in this newspaper. The business people and citizens of this commu- nity have helped to make The Florala News what it is today and 1 am proud of it - proud of Florala, too. 1 think we do pretty good, considering our size. Nothing spectacular, mind you, but good, honest, hard working, day-to-day folk. You can't beat it. Mrs. A. J. York called in a news item on Tuesday of my 'bad' week. I must have sounded out-of-sorts because she said - "Merle, is something wrong?" I told her nothing more than every- thing was beginning to pile up, and I just didn't see how I was going to get it all done in a day... She said, "Well, I will say a little prayer for you." You know, that made my day. l picked my chin up and if I was bothered the rest of that day - you can bet it didn't show. That is the kind of people I am talking about. Florala is made up of dozens of them. Mary Tyner's greeting every Wednesday night at choir practice is - - "Merle, did you get us out a paper?" Mary really avpreciates this newspaper. I don't know if it has anything to do with the fact that she worked next door for many years and knows something about the work it takes to get one in the mail, or not. But she appreciates it, nevertheless. JEWEL POWELL TO SHARE FAMILY "METHOD" OF MAK- ING CHILI SAUCE J.wel Powell visited the office Monday morning and brought the most heavenly looking pint of chili sauce bearing her own label - From The Kitchen of Jewel Powell, Florala, Alabama. Jewel, like Joann Geohagan, busies herself all summer mak- ing all sort of goodies - sauces, jellies, preserves, pickles- you name it, those girls make it. They specialize in the unusual. Jewel tells me this method of making chili sauce has been handed down in her family for more than one hundred years and that she intends to allow me to share it with our readers just as soon as she has compiled it. It may be too late for most of us to utilize this year, but, we can sure cut it out and save it until our vegetables come in next spring. The prime ingredients are to- matoes, onions, peppers and spices to taste. Jewel says that it is good served over peas and butterbeans, but the "way they enjoyed it most, when she was growing up, was served over hot biscuits with crispy strips of bacon as an ac- companiment for breakfast -- That is my weakness, sauces served over hot biscuits. I simply cannot wait to try it. II God's presence. Isaiah 59:2 - But your iniquities have sepa- rated between you and your God, and your sins have bid his face from you, that he will not hear. I John 1:9 - If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us of all unrighteous- Bess. Let's get right with God and enjoy our flower garden by con- trolling the disease of our heart. Look for me in this column next week. The best news I know this week is that Vester and I got busy with our hoes and cleaned our grassy flower beds -a very dear spot to my heart. Also, we begin digging and dividing Iris, for more blossoms and to share with our flower garden friends. After dividing your Rhizomes and preparing your beds, the best fertilizer recommended is 5-I0-5, low in nitrogen and high in phosphrons. Too much nit- rogen encourages lush, soft growth that is more sucepti- ble to foliage and rhizome dis- ease; flowers will be fewer, too.

PEE-WEES BELIEVE IN TOOTH FAIRY -- Boyd Caton, playing for the Tigers, lost his tooth in the Tiger-Jet scramble Satur- day night and had Ref. Dale Odom stop the game while he and fellow player, Marty Savage, recovered it. Marty encouraged Boyd to put it under his pillow that night so that the tooth fairy could pay him a visit.
