Unless one happens to be the father of one of the YWCA or Shorter College basketball players, one will be turned away from the door when the two teams clash in their upcoming second contest of the year.

Womenfolk, of course, are allowed to pay a small entrance fee to see the young ladies play. but men are barred – unless, as before stated, one is the paternal parent of one of the fair players.

The prohibition was installed on the gate at the request of President Van Hoose of Shorter College. It was the only condition under which he would allow the Shorter team to play in Atlanta.


The mere mention of her mother’s name to her husband, Thomas Sayre, of this city, drove him wild with passion, Mrs. Sayre told Ordinary Harry Johnson and so she has left him, as this was only one of the many things she decided she didn’t like about Sayre.

However, something happened that she didn’t bargain for, she told the ordinary. When she left Sayre, he came back without her knowledge and took their 3-month-old baby and she can’t find it. She met him on the street yesterday, she said and asked him where the baby is and he just told her to find out. She wanted the ordinary to help her find out, but if he does, assisted by the sheriff, she will have to institute the properly legal proceedings and she expects to do that.

Rock music goes to church

From coast to coast an increasing number of American houses of worship are being filled with the sounds of rock music, of theatrical drama, of rap sessions on everything from marriage and homosexuality to war, peace and politics.

In the sanctuaries of some of our most beautiful cathedrals people are hooting and hollering to the beat of hot jazz, clapping their hands, thumping their feet and sometimes dancing in the aisles. In some churches strobe lights blink to the rhythm of rock. And occasionally, youngsters, moved by the joy of it, somersault.

It’s all part of the churches-to-the-people movement, strong on the East and West Coasts, entrenched in the nation’s capital, standard in staid old Boston and gradually working its way into the lifestyle of churches in between.

The most popular drama being performed in the sanctuaries is T.S. Eliot’s “Murder in the Cathedral.” At the First Unitarian Church of Oklahoma City the drama was staged last January 3 for a special reason. The date was chosen because it was close to the 800th anniversary of St. Thomas A. Becket’s assassination – Dec. 29, 1170.

Two seasoned teams rank low-ball favorites

A couple of combinations with a season of experience behind them rank as the early favorites for the annual Kraftsman’s Club Low Ball Golf Tournament scheduled this weekend at the nine-hole course.

Willard Nixon and John Hunley form one team, Jerry Argo and Martin Bell the other. They played together in low-ball tournaments last year and pretty well know each other’s games. This could spell trouble for other teams in the 36-hole tournament.

Club pro Raymond Williams said he will accept entries in the meet through Friday, provided the field has not been closed by that time. Only the first 60 teams will be accepted and just under 20 had filed entries by late Tuesday.

Entry fee is $15 per team and merchandise certificates go to the first three teams in each flight.

This is the first regular tournament of the 1971 season. Two other events, both 18-hole medal play events, were held earlier at LinValley and GEAA, but both of these were charity tournaments.

The Kraftsman’s Club course is one of the shortest courses in Floyd County and yet it plays to a par 36-36-72. The real test lies with small greens, which place a high premium on accurate approach shots.

The new school desks and equipment for the new addition to the Lindale School building have arrived and were moved from the depot to the school building, ready to be installed in the various new grade rooms.

The Lindale school building, grounds and everything connected with it has always been something that Lindale or any other community should be proud of, and now is more so since the building and equipping of the new addition has been accomplished.


The second investigation into the 1919 World Series which the Chicago White Sox are charged with “throwing” to Cincinnati was started by Illinois state’s attorney Crowe before the Cook county grand jury in Chicago. In outlining his plans, attorney Crowe promised the jurors new evidence to reindict the men whose cases were dropped and said the public will be even more surprised at the developments than at the first indictments.
