Better education for our children.., more doctors and lower insurance costs.., removal of the 4% tax on phone, gas and electric bills.., local control of our schools again .. strengthened law and order to combat militants, drugs and violence.., no new taxes without voter ap- proval.., these are key parts of the Wallace program which will help move Alabama into a new era of progress and prosperity.

The hostess served a delicious salad plate with coffee to the members on arrival. Mrs. Onie Prit- chert of Lockhart was a guest. Club president, Mrs. Merten Reeves, called the meeting to order and presided during the business session. The song, "America the Beautiful',, was sung and the club collect was repeated. The chairman of each Feder- ation Department was asked to become familiar with her de- partment and make a short report during the year. Mrs. Paul Petrey, chair- man of the Blind Made Sales, was complimented on her com- mittee's fine work. She re- ported that the sales of Blind Made goods had netted $713.00 to date. She expressed hope that an even higher goal would be reached by the time the sale ends. Mrs. Charles Ganey was in charge of the program. She presented an interesting and in- formative paper entitled "The J ..... Cats Rhine, Europe's River Of Leg- end". Mrs. Ganey pointed out that the Rhine is a great and ancient river. From its source, high in the Swiss Alps, to its mouth at the Rotterdam on the North Sea, it washed the bor- ders of heartlands of six Western European countries; Switzerland,Liechtenstein, Austria, West Germany, France, and The Netherlands. She said that the Rhine is the world's busiest river, rich in legend and history. She told of the activities of the many cities in Germany whlchborder the river. She cited that many historic castles, dating back to feudalistic times, still stand in Germany. ='They were built in a time when the Rhine was a freebooter's paradise," Mrs. Ganey said. Mrs. Ganey concluded her program with a recording en- titled *'Die Meistersinger" by Richard Wagner, one of Ger- man's great composers of the late 1800's. The club will meet again on November 5, with Mrs. Donald Dean as hostess and Mrs. A. G. Williams, St. as program leader. Defeat Opp 32 - 8 By Don R.

RIGHT ONt That's the slo- gan that has now been adopted by the Florala Junior Wildcats. A very fitting onerindeed, since it exemplifies the winning spirit that is now apparent by the ac- ttons of team members. The Junior Wildcats did move "Right On" Tuesday night with another victory. This time the Wildcats not only won, but won big - 32-8 over the Opp Junior Bobcats. It was another rainy night, but fortunately it did not rain as hard as was expected. This was a crucial game for the team, as it was an all-out effort to better its record which is now 2 out of 3. An effort was made before the game by Coach Don Crawford to loosen up the players with a little aggressive pep talk and a lit- tle kidding. Apparently it worked. The Wildcats showed a great deal of enthusiasm and quickly scored on its bread and butter play a half-back option pass from David Toole to Rob- ert James. The extra point attempt failed and Florala led 6-0. Shortly afterwards fullback Rommanuel Gundrum plunged up the middle for about 40 yards for another touchdown, making the score 12-0. Late in the second period Opp scored on a quarterback option play that covered some 60 yards. The extra point was good, and at halftime the score was 12-8 in favor of Florala. In the second half David Toole threw two more passes for touchdowns, one to Jerome Woedham and another to Rob.. err James. Gundrum scored again on a 30 yard run mak- ing the score 32-8, which was final. Tim Cawthon played an out- standing game at quarterback along with other players to nu- merous to mention.
