Glencoe girls won 33 to 31, and Ripley boys won 42 to 41. The girls' game was close and exciting as the half-time score was Ripley 20, Giencoe 19. Rhonda Prickett led the Ripley team with 17 points and Kim Fowler and Regina Gunter had 12 and 2 points each. Driskel led Glencoe with 13 points and Clingen- peel, Spencer, and P. Brake had 6, 10, and 4 points. The guards for Ripley were Pam Boyles, Barbara Turner, Jai Freeman, and Linda Kinkaid.

Sandy Sadler scored 30 points to lead Ripley and Judy Cook led M-O with 41 points. The halftime score was M-O 25 and Ripley 18, but as the game proceded into the third quarter the Ripley basketball team started pulling together to end the third quarter M-O, 35, Ripley, 34. M-O's Judy Cook scored 12 points in the last quarter to pull M-O ahead to win the game M-O ~19, Ripley, 47. The Ripley High School boys vars:ty team played a well-rounded scoring game to beat M-O.

The Ripley boys' team wasn't quite so lucky, as they came up behind Coyle, 56 to 43. Clinton and Love led Coyle with 21 and 17 points each. Ray Dan Ripley led the Warriors with l0 points. Coyle led the baligame the whole game but the third quarter, with 20 points scored Coyle and 5 scored by Ripley, pulled Coyle ahead to win the game.

OG&E could save a tot of money by building natural gas or oil-fired power plants to generate electricity. But if we did, they would probably be standing idle in a few years because of a shortage of fuel. Instead, we're building coal-fired power plants to help assure there will be an adequate supply of electricity to meet your future needs. It costs a lot of money to build a coal plant. Labor costs, construction materials and supplies, financing and environmental costs have all dramatically increased.., and con- tinue to increase daily. Since these plants cost more to build, electricity will have to cost you more. But coal is an abundant fuel .. and unlike new supplies of natural gas and oil, coat will be more economical for us to burn. This means that coal will help slow the rising cost of electricity by stabilizing our fuel costs. OG&E is building coal-fired power plants now to keep your costs ~ ELECTRIC SERVICE as low as possible in the long run. ~ "
