The Envoys Envoys To S" g Assembly Of God The Envoys are a gospel music group from Charlotte, North Carolina that have sung professionally for seven years in a music ministry across the United States.

The Envoys appear on both national Christian Television Networks - The P.T.L. Club, and the 700 Club. Singing on these programs that have mil- lions of viewers has given in- stant recognition to the Envoys all across the country. The Envoys have also shared con- certs with Doug Oldlmm, AJa- drae' Crouch, The Couriers, and many fine Christian artists of our day. Although the Envoys pre- sent versatility and smooth- ness in their songs, their em- phasis is not only entertain- ment.

Coach Paul Terry gave a report on last weeks game with Opp. Terry stated that in the first half, Opp used a end around play that hurt us and in the second half, the passing was the factor in the score of the game. He stated that we had two good scoring drives and played good defense with the exception of pass defense and end plays in the first half. In a report on this weeks game with Brundidge, he sta- ted that they are still using a wide spread passing attack similar to what they used last year. They have won few ga- mes this year and he feels that unless we play our best they will be hard to handle. This week is homecoming and Florala should be ready to play.

Don't go near "Silky" Corbin or he'll tie you in knots, honest! When he pulls this memory stuff on you, look out! Call it a memory feat, mental magic or what you will, but here is the way it works. Write down thirty (30) words and number them. Read the numbers and words to "Silky" and not only will he repeat them to you as you gave them, but you can call off any number and he will give the corresponding word. He caps the performance by giving the entire list backwards! This "sensational youth" completely captured the hearts and minds of the audience on October 5, when the young artist ap- peared at the American Legion last Tuesday evening. This local magician, displayed poise in making smooth moves of misdirection - no matter how close you are to the stage, he is amazing - it was truly "mystery at its best". The "Miracle Memory Act" came as the finale- what an impact. When "Silky" took his final bow and departed, the hearts of the audience went w/th him.
