Robin Hall was crowned home- coming queen by king James Wilkes in impressive pre-game ceremonies. The game ball came floating in via the Oklahoma Parachute Center out of Cushing. The jump was spon- sored by the yearbook staff. And, the Midnight Regiment teamed up with the alumni band for an out- standing halftime performadce. The i combined groups drew a standing ovation following their final num- ber, the traditional "You'll Never Walk Alone," which was played this year in memory of the late Carol Wall. The positive things that came from the shellacking by Jones that lowered the Perkins-Tryon Demons season record to 0-5 and 0-2 overall, include: "Not suffering any serious in- juries that will keep anybody from playing at Newcastle, and getting some positive playing time for some of younger kids," said Gray. "The only injury we had in the "Freshman Brad Kastl got to play a lot and we started freshman Roland Bastianelli at linebacker. =They all gave us some positive playing time." Perkins-Tryon is simply caught up in the numbers game. "We don't have that many players out. We had injuries and a scholas- tic casualty for Jones," Gray con- tinued. "we weren't able to practice the injured during the week. We vre just trying to get them healthy. Without the benefit of a week's practices, we struggled. And, our backups are freshmen who are trying hard and gaining experience but lack strength and size. "We missed a lot of tackles. We were putting an arm on a runner instead of a pad. "We started the game without one-half (Jeff McClellan and Pete Sweger) of our starting backfield and then lost our quarterback. Jones was keying on our leading rasher, Jeremy Bale. Jeremy, who was The Demons are self destructing, early. Against Jones, P-T had eight fumbles, losing five, had a pass picked off and a punt blocked for a safety. Perkins-Tryon fumbled away the ball on the first play of the game. Jones scored in five pI,ws with senior David Martin getting the six points from oue-yard out and superb junior running hack Telly Oatewood kicking the extra point. The Demons were three and out after the ensuing kickoff. Martin fumbled Bale punt forward 14 yards, recovering at the P-T 37. Five plays later, Gatewood scored from the 11. He also converted. On P-T's next possession, Gate- va3od scooped up a Demon fum- ble, returning it 46 yards for an- other touchdown. His conversion kick made it 21-0 with 2:37 left in the first period. The issue had been decided, early. =We, the players and the coaches, can't hang our heads," Gray said. "I (See DEMONS on Pge 4) P-T board discusses auction, votes to change health carrier By Bob Williams  was concerned about the vast compete in the Arcalala Marching Journal Editor The Perkins-Tryon Board of Education looked at Saturday's land auction, heard the fruitless quest (so far) of a patron, voted to change health-dental carrier and approved a pair of out of town trips for the FFA and band during a routine board meeting Monday night. Superintendent of Schools Jim Hyder called the board's attention to the auction Saturday of 50 acres of "surplus land. C.D. Mihura has agreed to be the auctioneer at no cost to the school district." The sale of the laud came up at the September meeting when Cimarron Golf, Inc. asked to pur- chase the land. There was con- flict of interested with at least twu board members being associated with Cimarron Golf which is in the process of building an nine-hole golf course north of tem. The golf association was interested in pur- chasing the land to build a driving range and putting greea. The board voted at a special meeting later in the month to put the land up for auc- tion. Hyder said he expected to have the final appraisal of the land 00emy. Caml__Hol. mid _ the board number of bridges, 35, that are out in Lincoln County which is forcing both the school district buses and mail mutes to go =the long way arouml. "I talked to the county commis- sioners and they said they don't have any money to fix the bridges. Without an additional sales tax, them is only money to fix one bridge a year." Hyder said he was aware of the problem and "we are facing the same situation in Payne County. We have been assured that when money is released or becomes available then something would be done." School personnel vute 42-29 to change health and dental insurance plans with 24 not carrying. Hyder reco the board go with the te. They agreed. As of Nov. I, P-T will align with the Oklahoma State and Education Employee's Group Insurance. . The board also apwoved a trip for the FFA to the National Meats and Contest and Festival. Tracy Farmer, representing the Perkins Youth and Sports Organiza- tion, made the group's annual re- quest for the elementary and mid- dle school gynmasinsms to be used by PYSO when not being used for school activities. Farmer is working with Hyder on gymnasium avail- ability and practice times. Hyder also brought up an idea being considered by the yearbook staff.

Oct. 30 to =It's still in the plning stage," Clark said Wednesday afternoon. "We wanted something for adults to do after the other activities have concluded. It's an idea to make it a full day of fun for everybody and not end it in the early afternoon. "The first step was to get the council's permission to block off the street, from Second to Third on Stumbo, prior to completing the plans," said Clark. The City Council agreed to the idea of street dance with stipu- latices: The dance could be held from 2-9 p.m.; Pardners had to get written permission from the resi- dents involved; Pardners would be responsible for cleanup following the dance; and no alcoholic bever- ages would be permitted. In other business items: ..... Lany Wasson of TLT Paving Company asked for a demonstration ou a new road surface to help the city fill cracks and potholes. The product will seal the roadway and help maintain the streets after the initial treatment; ..... Ray "lrlton, who purchased the property at 217 E. Hurt, asked for a water deposit and monthly charge of $7.05 be waved as the structure would not be occupied. The council instructed City Attorney Roger McMillian to check ordnances before taking action; .... Larry Moorman reported the =two-inch water line on the west side of town was coming along." Carney using Tryon gymnasium "we would have two yearbooks. One would be softcover for the ele- mentary school students in Perkins and Tryon, and the usual hard- cover one for the middle and high schools. The cost of each book would be reduced by making the change," Hyder said. Hyder also prepared policy for "religions observations and dis- plays" for the board's considera- tion. School counselors gave a brief report on the ITBS test scores which With no gymnasium of their own, the Perkins-Tryon school system is working with Carney officials to use the Tryon gymnasium for a practice site and for "at least one its home game." Carney found itself "gyndess" earlier in the year when a structure problem made the gymnasium un- safe." While working out the gym prob- lems, the Bulldogs will be using the Tryon gynmnsium.
