The two clubs met early in the season last year and Breckenridge won a 2*-22 thriller, giving the Buck's backers room to claim the unofficial overall state crown after the Coyotes went on to win 10 AAAA, Wichita rails will probably enter Friday night's contest a slight favorite due to the home field advantage. But they had It in 19S8, too. Both No. 2 ranking teams also face tough foes this week — Abilene of AAAA hosting Sweetwater and Cleburne of AAA entertaining stormy Stainford, the AA state champ which has-piled up more than 100 points in its two starts against trams in its own division. Only one other game actually matches teams which drew Top 10 rating in the UPI's pre-season coaches' ratings. That sends 10th rated Baytown to Port Arthur, which was No. 6 prior to its 7-0 loss to Baton Route tstrouma last week.

Athens turned in one of the opening week's most stunning lerformances when the Hornets humiliated highly-touted Terrell 39-0, while Gladewater walloped Waxahachie 33-6 and Corsicana battled top-tenner Waco to a 6-6 tie. Imagine a truck ride so smooth and cushioned that fragile loads can travel the worst "washboard" roads with ease. Imagine a truck ride that virtually eliminates shimmy and wheel fight, cuts side sway on curves, makes steering far steadier and easier, keeps drivers far fresher. Imagine a truck ride that permits higher safe cruising speeds, more trips per day with all kind* of cargo over every type of road surface. Imagine a ride that keeps up to 78% of all objectionable road shock and vibration from ever reaching the driver and cargo, a" design that sharply reduces twisting and fatigue forces on chassis, cabs and bodies, that keeps trucks young for extra thousands of mijes, j. Soon you won't have to just imagine such a ride. You caniryitfor yourself in the trucks that do the next best thing to paving every road in America-^new Chevroltt trucks for 1960. You'll see what happens when Chevy's truck engineers design a whole new lint «f trucks around a whole new kind of torsion-spring suspension. These trucks are new from th* ridt on up—with wonderfully roomier cabs, brawnier frames, style thafs fresh as sixty and more! Don't decide on any new truck till you see the newest of all. dealer'a.
