I II IlU Perkins To Claremore-Sequoyah Friday A chartered bus for the Demon football team and a car caravan for Demon fans will be the mode of transportation as Perkins-Tryon moves east to Claremore-Sequoyah for the second round of the football playoffs Friday night. Claremore Sequoyah is a rural school north of Claremore, on Highway 66, on the east or right hand side of Highway 66. Bill McDaniel, spokesman for the Demon All Sports Booster Club, told The Journal Monday that a car caravan will form at the gymnasium parking lot at 4 p.m. Friday afternoon, and fans are urged to travel with the caravan. McDaniel reports that the caravan will stop at Claremore to eat before traveling on to the stadium. The Booster Club and fans will cooperate with the school in chartering a bus for the Demon football team, with the club paying the difference in what the state allows for travel and the actual cost of the bus charter. The school will take school busses for the band and pep club and cheer leaders. According to the school administrative offices, the game will start at 7:30 and admission price will be $3 for adults and $2 for students. The prices are set by the State Secondary Athletic Association. All those making the trip in the Demon caravan are asked to fill their cars, as the Booster Club would like to have as many Perkins-Tryon fans in the stadium as possible.

"It is very important for all Oklahomans to safeguard this document. Your car title merits the same protection as the deed to your home," Spradlin concluded. Dear Editor Letter to Editor: Dear Sir; I saw the article on mullein in the Journal and since I have some growing here, which t believe to be unusual, thought perhaps you'd be interested in some of the pictures of the unusual heads. And I wondered too if Professor Black had ever seen anything like them in his time? I find your "Just A Line More" interesting and think the positions taken in them to be well-taken. Enclosed are some of the snapshots of the mullein heads. Use them as you see fit. Sincerely, Dale M. Stanton Los Gatos, ~.
