The Lions' heroics may be only on paper today, but if the student enthusiasm is any indication the imaginary scene will be a reality Saturday night. The two schools have battled it out on two previous occasions — on each occasion the winner has gone on (o win the stale championship. This year the hot rivalry fnay be stimulated by the prospect of a wintry blast. This does not seem to have dampened the fervor of the football team. A number of students were interviewed in the locker area before school and the consensus of opinion about the cold weather can be summed up in two words. "Who cares." However. Kay Price, a BHS junior not particularly concerned about herself and the prospect of a cold day Saturday in Amarillo said. "It will he so cold. The boys will just Ireexe to death." Overhearing the remark, Joe McCluskey, guard on the team said, "We are ready to play in any kind of weather." fullback Jack Alley added. "I'm looking forward to it and we are going up there with it in our minds to beat them." Cheerleader Buddy Clements noted, "We have a better second half than they have." Kenny Thomas, guard summed it Up by saying, "The weather won't bother us. They have a Weight advantage on us but I still think we'll win." To add to the excitement of the game, a train bound for Amarillo has been proposed and if the required number of persons purchase tickets, it will be all aboard for Amarillo Saturday morning. Tickets cost $tfl round trip per student and $14.50 round trip for adults. School officials feel a special train can only add to the excitement and enthusiast of the big game. Friday morning at 10:30 a pep assembly will be on the school agenda and students wearing victory ribbons will help spur the Lions onto victory. Brownwood spectators will occupy the east side of the field. The seats will be warm despite the prospect of a cold night because a football game between Abilene Cooper and Amarillo Tascosa will be played on that same field Saturday afternobn. The football team is making a weekend of it and in order to give the boys plenty of much needed rest, the team will leave Friday afternoon and return to Brownwood Sunday.

Fowler gave Congress an administration proposal today for a $7.4-billion tax increase and a $4-bjllion spending cut, and said it would be unthinkable not to enact it promptly. Fowler said the combination would cut the expected deficit from more than $25 billion to less than $14 billion and would amount to a giant step in strengthening the U.S. dollar against buffetings in the inter' national market, Fowler appeared before the House Ways and Means Committee which shelved President Johnson's tax proposal almost two months ago, saying it could be considered when Congress and the ^ executive agreed on spending cuts. "less of a possibility now.' ATHENS (AP) — Informed diplomatic sources said tonight Greece and Turkey have come to agreement on the Cyprus problem and simultaneous announcements to this effect will be made later from both Athens and Ankara. Vance and~ President Makarios, the leader of the Greek Cypriot community, met for an hour at the presidential palace while Turkish Air Force jets screamed overhead. It was their second day over Nicosia and their 12th successive day over Cyprus. The Greek government has been reported willing to withdraw the 8,000-12,000 Greek soldiers who were infiltrated into r jrus in violation of the 1960 Zurich agreements which gave the island its independence from Britain. These provide for garrisons of 950 Greek troops and 650 Turkish troops in Cyprus. Makarios is opposed to withdrawal of Greek troops unless all Turkish troops also withdraw and his government is given firm international guarantees against foreign intervention. But the Turkish government refuses to abandon the Turkish Cypriot minority, contending that the Turkish garrison is the only guarantee of protection for it against the Greek Cypriot majority. It was generally believed in Cyprus that Makarios would have to go along with anything Greece agreed to, 20 SHOPPING DAYS TO CHRISTMAS Callaghan Quits Treasury Post LONDON (AP) — Chancellor of the Exchequer James Callaghan resigned today in the wake of Britain's devaluation of the pound, He switched places with Home Secretary Roy Jenkins, who succeeds him at the treasury. The switch brings to the British treasury one of the Cabinet's leading exponents of Britain joining the Common Market. He favored is believed devaluation Namara might quit his Pentagon post if he is selected. Some congressional sources greeted word of the defense chief's retirement with predictions a stepped up U.S. military drive in Vietnam is in the works. And Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass.. questioned publicly whether McNamara is stepping out voluntarily. He cited some reports the secretary did not want to quit. Kennedy, member of a family with close personal ties to McNamara, said it was important that Congress and the public "know really what is the basis" for the move. Sen. Caiborne Pell, D-R.L, called on McNamara in a Sen- atespeech to stay on the job. He described the secretary as a voice of restraint in the highest councils of the administration and said if McNamara left there would be "a very real hardening of positions." Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield, who has differed sharply with President Johnson over war policy, also said McNamara had imposed restraint on U.S. military leaders. He expressed hope a new defense chief wouldn't support eclares No Offers Yet, Governor Says of Defense Position By GARTH JONES AUSTIN (AP) — Gov. John Connally said today he has not been offered the job as defense secretary and does not anticipate it will be offered him. "I assure you there is no foundation of fact to any of the rumors that have been floating around the past week," he told a hurriedly called news conference in commenting on recurring rumors he may .be picked to succeed Defense Secretary Robert S, McNamara. "There is nothing to this.

Connally is flying to Washington this afternoon en route to Paris in the interests of the 1968 HemisFair exhibition in San Antonio. He said he hoped to see President Johnson but he had no appointment to do so. Bill Carter, press secretary to the governor, stood by that statement when asked if Connally would confer with Johnson. Carter said Connally will be in Washington until Thursday when he is to fly to Paris on another mission for Hemisfair.
