Evan.-, ; ijoss, while was the big gun of the Searcy team and his line-plunging was feared all over that part of the stale. Blytheville scouts observed that Evans usually carried the ball into ihe line on the first play after the kickoff. Laslie, banking on Walker's crushing power as a line backer, instructed' Ills forwards to open a hole in the line to give Walker full opportunity for a clean tackle. True to predictions, Evans look the ball and hinged into the maroon line. Walker tore into his mldscction with every ounce of , hitter Berry Alien knocked a "might have been" home run. But when :t. struck the ground, unable to bounce or roll, the centerfieldcr walked a few feet/picked up the ball and Allen was stopped .at second. j Out of four times at bat, Allen made one run, two hits and a sacrifice hit, Randall Workman's pitching caused much comment from spectators, most of whom were Osceola Ttsitors. Fanning 12 batters, he showed good form and complete control of the ball. A star of the Osceola team was Kcpnd baseman Hale, who out of three times at bat, made one run, his mighty power. It was a tackle seldom seen thoec parts. Evans, himself a six- foot, 200-poundcr. crashed in leap of dust. When he finally pulled himself to his feet he left iis reputation as a line-plunger there on the ground, because all during that game he ran his plays methodically and without the (he that had characterized his former games.

Rilcy taunted Cozajl into a furious rage and then ncatl' pinned him with very little dlffi cnlty. in the second preliminary Newman got the best of Harrel ii 10 minutes by using speed, rougl work, and skill.

Water exists in three forms—Liquid, Solid and Gaseous. In liquid form it is water, in solid form it is ice and in gaseous form it is vapor or steam. As we have mentioned, pure water is known as H20, two parts of hydrogen and one part of oxygen. By weight, the ratio is about sixteen parts oxygen to two parts of hydrogen, and this ratio is maintained in whatever form the water be-— liquid, solid or gaseous. In other words water is unchangeable and its composition, whether as water, as ice, as snowflakcs, as steam, as clouds, or as invisible vapor, IS ALWAYS THE SAME— sixteen parts of oxygen to two parts of hydrogen. Water is about 819 times heavier than air, but when evaporated, or in the form of vapor, it becomes 133 times LIGHTER than dry air. That is why it ascends to form clouds and then returns to earth in the form of rain, hail, sleet or snow, where it sinks into the natural reservoirs of the earth to be pumped up for our daily consumption. That is why water is our cheapest and most important commodity. Use it liberally to help promote better health. Blytheville Water Co.
