A lot of cars wouldn't start Tuesday or Wednesday morning and a lot of people were already wanting warm weather back. The local coffee houses were in demand as people tried to get up steam to tackle the cold outdoors. One care owner was complaining that he was caught short in sup- ply, but was sure glad that there was a demand for the brew. 9 zw If you can't read this paper be- cause of the ink smudges or if it isn't what it used to look like, we have the answer. Bill Dickson is our new prep, man and we are having quite a time learning how to run this contraption, Bill will undoubtedly lose a law nights sleep over his new pet and his patience stretched to the breaking point, but I believe that he will master the old Gutenberg. By the way Roland, order us a few hundred more pounds of pap- er while we are learning. $PYw It's Christmas time again and there are lots of pretty yard dec- orations to be found here in Per- kins. It would be time well spent if you drive around and look at the pretty Christmas scenery that a number of families are putting up.

Girls Win Two; Boys Defeated The Perkins Demonettes still maintain an unblemished record and the boys dropped two games in the past week's action on the hardwoods.

Buddy Lawrence hit 16 points and Jim Walker 14 to lead theoffen- sive ~ttack.

Sandy Wells was again high point girl with 17, followed by Molly Fultz scoring 15, Betty Brown scored 12 to lead the Coy- le girls.
