When the smoked had cleared, the 'lights on the scoreboard showed the Jets winning by a score of 14 to 6, in a major upset of the season. The fired ul) Jet defense held the Tigers at bay, with the ex- ception of a 5/-yard dash by "Road Runner Cassady", for the lone Tiger score. For the Jets, the running of trio "Speedy" Mount, "Block Buster" McLeod and Keith Ow- ens led the way. Mount scor- ed on a 60-yard dash while Keith Owens score came on a 34-yard for the second TD. McLeod went in for the 2- point conversion. 'Both teams were outstanding, defensively. Final score -- Jets 14 and Tigers 6. PACKERS WHALLOP RAMS 44-0 The finale Saturday evening saw the Packers display an awesome attack in downing the Rams to the tune of 44-0. Touchdowns came like a cash register in a supermarket add- ing up totals. Dwight Stone accounted for Z TDs, Steve Wallace Z, Marcus Mays 1, QB McNeill 1, and a blocked punt accounted for the final TD. Tim Hart and company led the defense for the Packers. Also Cliff Zorn showed in the secondary with key stops. For the Rams, the running of WEEK OF OCTOBER II, O. B.

Everyone is invited to come and give this Pee Weeprogram your support in their final game of the season. They are the future Wildcats! TIGERS CLIP JETS 14-0 Paul Mitchell's Tigers con- tinued their winning streak by clipping the Jets 14-0 as an enthusiastic crowd witnessed the action. "Road Runner" Cassady was the offensive star for the Ti- gers, accounting for both TDs -- one on a 30-yard gal- lop, the other on a 70-yard burst over tackle into pro- mised land. "Scooter" Mit- chell played his usual good game, racking up yardage for the Tigers. "Killer" Johnson and Sam Norman were defen- sive standouts. Leading the Jets, offensively were Keith Owens and "Block Buster" McLeod. McLeod and Williams Mount both played a good game defensively. The final score - Tigers 14, Jets 0. COWBOYS SURPRISE PACKERS IN 0-0 TIE In the second game Tuesday night, the vastly improved Cow- bys battled the favored Pack- ers to a 0-0 tie. Flags flying all over the gri- diron reminded one of the flags flying over the United Nations building in New York. Each time one team would threaten to score, a flag would fly, kill- ing the chance to go ahead. Offensive standout for the Cowboys was Be Hattaway, making a brilliant run of 35 yards, after breaking tackle af- ter tackle. On defense, Ken Williams was the star, making 9 solo tackles and a number of assists. Also Jerry Washing- ton came up with . key inter- ceptions while Dan Johnson re- covered a fumble. On the other side of the ledger, the Packers were led offensively by Stanley Wallace; defensively, Tim Hart was a thorn in the Cowboys hide, making stop after stop. The overall picture was a de- fensive struggle between two well coached teams. FOOTNOTE: As usual, the concession stand was in full swing, operated by parents of the Pee Wees. Cupcakes and coffee were the main offering.

Medicare-Medicaid Reform was another of Purnell's plat- form stands. "It is manda- tory that legislation be intro- duced which will protect our physicians and pharmacists from the small but venemous "sue-happy" that costs the taxpayer thousands of dollars in duplicative services. This reform could make monies available for badly needed ex- panded health services in Ala- bama," Purnell said. Purnell also pledged his support for current farm pro- grams to insure what he ter- med as "the number one"bus- iness of this district. "Far- mers will continue to have a voice in their state legislature and a senator who will work diligently to establish a rap- port with our district and state federal legislators in Wash- ington," Purnell said. Purnell also said that he would like to see the Alabama Dairy Commission investiga- ted. Purnell stated in his release that he was not committed to anyone and that he would like to work to see this area grow. "It is one of the most over- looked and ignored areas of the state with the resources and terrain to be one of the fi- nest. ' ' Dickinson To Visit Florala Alabama Congressman Wil- liam L.
