ill Season . Becomes History Hornet* OuUcore Opponents for 1991 Season , 136 to 134 The 1931 football season at Blevins i* hlttory, It was not an easy season for nlayerp, coach or supporters. Due to delay in construction of the new building, school started late and four games were played before school began. Irregular practice was unavoidable Under such circumstances and the team did riot round out into condition earlv in the seapon. ,, Another handicap Was injured. With .. cnly, three regulars from last year's L) round as ncucleuc, Coach Lay had a f •; hard job from the beginning. Early irt th« season the only veteran back Went out with an Injury and did not return to the Inieuo until late in the reason. A new backfield out and out had to be developed and frequent Injuries made it impossible to start the same four ball carriers in any two consecutive games. The (gam also faced a hard schedule beginning September thi> 25th without a weeks rest they played ten games. Soven of these were lost. At least tjwo of these wcrr hard luck affairs but on .five occasions they had met worthy foes land were outplayed by more experienced elevens. On three occjis- sions they won by larqe scores however and outscored their opponents for the season 13C to 134. • Their years record was: Blevins 6, Nashville non letter men 2C. Blevins 0, Amity 27. Blevins 0, Chidesler 12. Blevins 0, Locksburg 12. Blevins 0, Glenwood 14. Blevins 33, Lewisville 0. Blevins 4G, Princeton 0. Blevins 7, Delight 19. Blevins C. Horotion 18. N Blevins 32, Chidesler G. Throughout the season Blevins presented a strong line lod by Captain Husky at center, the line was composed of Spears and White at guards, Single and Stone at Tackles, and Guy Loe and Arnold at ends. Culpeper also paw much service at guard and Sheffield and Hampton saw quite a bit of play at end. Eleven men in all were vised in tho backfield. These were Chester Steplfens. Orcn Stephens, Yokum, Foster, Bonds, Honea, Arlis Loe, Nelson, Gorham, Hampton and Spears. Frequent shifts were necessary due to injuries and men dropping out and these hindered the development of a consistent attack. Scoring honors for the season .went to Yokom who accumulated 31 points, but he was closely crowded "by the pass snntcher Guy Loe who'-had 80 to his credit. Loe was perhaps the best pass receiver in this part of the state. Five times he crossed the goal line after taking a long pass and on at least four other occassions he carried the ball to within the ten yard line from where, it was carried over. He was also the only member of the squad to play every minute of every minute of every game. Others contributing to the scoring were Cheater L Stephens 19 points, Foster 12, Arlis M Loe 10, Gorham 8, Nelson 6, Husky G, Culpeper G, Stone 6, Bonds 1 and Spears 1.

COMETIME during the remainder '*" of that iirst dance, which had become a horrible nightmare to Mary, she was aware ef a severe bump—and looked arounu to see Bates, perspiring and apologetic, piloting a strange woman awkwardly nearby, De Lonm's start and quick leap mil do startled her more than the collision between die two couples. Though Bates bemoaned his clumsiness and -begged a thousand pardons, Do Loma's look would have slain him 1C It could. It was not until she and Bates were left alone together at tho table while JJo Loma, to whom there was no dance but the tango, went to speak to the orchestra leader, that Bho'lcarned (lie little Incident bad been Intentional. "He's got a gun," Bates whispered to Wary, as soon as the other two were out of hearing distance. "He carries It on the right sl.de. Sarry to have to tuke\bat method of tad- lug out, but I wanted to be sura. Did I step on you?" "Some," Mary confessed, wriggling a bruised toe, "but anything for the cause. So that was It! I thought you simply had two left feet." "I have. But Lord, nobody could dance with that dame anyhow. She wiggles. They never danced like that back in Buffalo, when I was learning." The press of so many extra guest:; had made service slow; Mary noticed that their dinner was still in its early stages. Unless he choae to walk out and leave his food uneaten. Dirk was committed to remain where he wa» for some time, at least. Well, she would make that time memorable for him, site resolved fiercely.

Mary-said she woufd,follow soon, and added in an undertone to Bates, "Hadn't you better go with him?" Bates appeared worried. The old man looked for irojai well, but, thev.e was the 'necklace to think of. Jupiter moved to the .parapet again to see If he could pick out the "Gypsy's" lights, and Bates and Mary exchanged thoughtful looks. "I'll put him In a cab anyhow," he finally., decided, ."and be right back." He hesitated. "I don't like to leave you here alone, though— and I want to atop and see how tho boys are coming with, the searching of De Loma's room." ''I'm not afraid." Mary,,assured him. "Don't be long, though, Hurry back!" "Listen! You better slve me that!" Bates leaned forward, an anxious furrow cutting Its way down the middle of his plump, pink forehead. "With that gun The Fly's liable to think hu can stand 'em all off and try something desperate." "ButJ can't give It to you, here!" Mary whispered impatiently. "Nobody's looking. Pull your wrap ,up while you unfasten It. Drop It in your napkin and lay the napkin on the table, and I'll pick it up. I'll watch." Mary did ns ho said, looking around languidly at her unobserv- Iflg neighbors as she pressed the clasp and lot the heavy loop of gems drop Into her lap. Hastily she covered them with the napkin and laid tho napkin on the table with as nonchalant an air as sho could muster. * * * M R. JUPITER was tramping around the room to the exit. Mary suddenly BOW Do Loma and the orchestra leader end their confab, and Do Loma turn and walk swiftly toward their table. "He's coming!" Rates rose hurriedly as she spoke, grabbing the napkin and. stuffing it In his Inside pocket Quickly. He cut straight across the room and caught up with Mr. Jupiter at the door. De Loma dropped into the chair beside her. He had recovered his "Ah, these American orchestras!" he scoffed. "They know nothing but the ijaaz. Would you believe lie has not a single tango on the program for tonight? I tojd him. 'Play mo the tango, and you will see something!' He will play it, but he thinks not many in .this crowd can dunce it— they are older folk, mostly. For them he plays the waltz!" He shook h}s head in amazement. "What good is riches }f you can only dance the waltz!" He was deadjy earnest about it, and in her relief at having the necklace put of her possession and safely tucked away In Bates' pocket, Mary almost laughed. She was seeing a new and strange aide of the man, but one that was as genuine iu Its way as bis less respectable phases. Then he noticed that the other places at their table were empty. "They have gone and left us, eh? The old one? Aud B:ttcs. too? Ah, but tli^ ulslii I* y.miu:-'.!" Ho turned li)\vun( lit: 1 ; KW.IIi'hi::: 1 . n» hN p:is- rloiKilt! ur"ij!vr ;'.:; I.'

Batea hadn't taken it alter all! In hla hurry he had seized an empty one and stuffed It In his pocket without looking—and tho Jupiter necklace was still here, underneath her hand. . She might have picked it up and put it on again—afterward 4H ! ffc?" nirred to her that that haflv^ e ^n th.e, sensible thing to do. But at the moment she was too panicky. A LMOST as If be read.'.ber thoughts, De Loma suddenly noticed tho absence of the rubles.* "You have—lost your necklace?" ho asked'In a choking voice, pointing to her throat. "Oh, no," she managed to laugh. "I was so Warm, and the atones are so heavy, I just took it off." He drew in a deep sucking breath and leaned back, his sinister face relaxed. Sho saw his eyes creeping over '.\er, tho table, her handbag, searching It out. "But you hud me frightened for a minute!" he chided her, "Such a valuable string could-easily become —lost in a crowd like this." "1 asked Mr. Bates to lock It up for me," sho said, deliberately, answering his unspoken question. His face hardened, seemed to lock together as If ho were shutting In his feelings with a titanic effort. He was silent so long that Mary began to wonder if he were going to speak to her again at nil. At that moment the orchestra begun to play "Two Tears," Unsmiling, he tapped out his ciguret and said "It is the tango. Will yon dance it with me?" "Will you pick up my glove, please?" Mary asked, on sudden In- npiration. "I think I dropped it over there." Surprised, he bent over and mndo an effort to locate live glovs, which lay where she had thrown it—under the table. There was nothing for him to do but get down 011 his knees and pick It up. In that moment. Mary unclasped her purse on the table, slipped the necklace Into it and clasped it .again. She was shaking out a fresh handkerchief to account for that loud snap of the handbag's fastener — if '10 had heard it—when he arose. Hushed and patently ill pleased, from his chivalrous errand. The problem was far from solved, Mary realized, hut It was the best she could do for the moment. Where on earth was Bates, she wondered furiously? Hla, "I'll liu'rry right back." had been spoken at least halC an hour ago—or so it seemed to her now. Reluctantly she rose and let Do Loiua's arm encircle her. She dread' cd to dance—with Dirk there, watpliing. She couldn't hear it it he looked at her again—like that. Do Loma broke In upon her thoughts, nodding toward the table "Do you leave your purse there like that? How careless you are!' "It's safe enough," she shrugged And indeed, she felt, the danger waa about tho same either way— whether she left it lying there, or carried it with her. And there was the chance Batea would come back in a monieut, anti take charge of it "Besides," she added, "there's) nothing iu it." He did not believe her, sho knew.

Wildly her thoughts flew, devising ways to get the purse away from him, trying to guess what ho meant to, do ( Had Bates :put men on to watch the doors as he said he would?; Where was Bates? Panic seized her utterly. To cover her fright -she flirted with De Loma With a sort ot feverish vivacity. She knew she was a hideously bad -actress—that her . nerves were playing her false but she.couldn't help it.. She read the crafty, exultant gleam In De Loma's eyes for w.hat it was—a sure belief that lie bad the Jupiter necklace in his pocket at last. . He played up to her in kind— looking down at her with veiled eyes and a mocking smile that had triumph In It and enjoyment of her terror. Dirk! It-came to her as a faint gleam of hope ... if he could be made to help. They passed and re-passed the table but Dirk never once looked her way. Doggedly, she resolved to pierce that mask of his . . . surely he could read her need of him In her eyes, If he would only look. She dared not ask De Loma for the bng, for fear of revealing its contents to him with certainty ... he would not give It up now without showing fight, she felt sure. Never in her life had Mary behaved other than decorously in public, but she was not behaving like a lady tonight. Tucking the thick red mass of her hair behind her ears, she let the rhythm of the, music take her and do with her as it would. -De Loma, catching fire from her, Invented steps, rediscovered old ones. They danced as one —and it was a sight to stir the blood. Tho floor began to clear, the entire room to grow still, watching them with breathless attention. Bravo!" someone cried, and someone else, unable to resist the rhythm, began to snap his fingers Instantly a crackling accompaniment Ri'ew up to swell the efforts of the traps player, outdoing himself on the castanets. Dirk was watching, now. Mary saw his eyes on her, like slits, through the fog of clgaret-smoke. Hia jaw was set, his face expressionless. Cornelia \vatched, too, .but unwillingly, scornfully. Mary felt a wicked thrill of joy, De Loma, apparently wishing to impress the open-mouthed Ethel, now wheeled ahout and aimed their steps deliberately at Dirk's table. The hovering spotlight that followed them included the three watching faces in its white, revealing glow. Mary saw Dirk was frowning at tha tablecloth now. He had gone pasty white. His hands, as ha fumbled with a cigaret, were trembling violently. She felt herself whirled about, her body bent back until the thick red bob of her hair swung free. Above her De Loam's grinning, gloating face appeared for a second, like something in a dream . • • then she Celt his lips on her mouth. In th? next instant Dirk, white- faced, his eyes blazing with murderous fury, had sent De Lomu hurtling backward with cue hard blow, From the floor, where she sauk when De Loma's arm released its grip about her, she saw Dirk hurl himself at the reeling man a :-"i''inil HP;? . . . saw He Loma ilnvv. 1 l.T.L-.'.

MONTGOMERY, Ala.—(^-Governor B. M. Miller Wednesday expressed the belief the plan formulated at the Jackson, Miss., cotton conference early this week, for a 50 per cent reduction in acreage in 1932 and 1933 was "unconstitutional, impractical and unenforceable." He made this statement to a delegation from the conference in answer to a request for a special session ol the Alabama legislature before January 20 to consider a reduction in cotton acreage. He told the delegation however, that he would give the request consideration, but that he was opposed to the plan. _,. —•• t mi India plans to abolish its state ail- services at the end of 1931 to carry out an economy program.
