The triumph was the first of the season for the Reapers But it was one they have been shooting for since 1958 when the Rebels won the first of the three games they ,have tak en in the cross town .rivalry.

But the Harvester* looked pretty good for the first time out. The first string or should we say the first unit that played for Pampa looked sharp. They outscored their opporient 16-6 before the sec- .ond unit took over to be outscored 22-2. Actually *~ • for the records — the score was not kept. And the ball didn't change hands like in a regular game. Clarendon was In possession most of the t i m e with the locals on defense. This kid — Randy Matson — really does a fine job under the backboards. Maybe he was the running 155 - pounder, tipped 40 ed ^0 the end zone.

Two top rated Pampa fighters —Lucky Dunham and Dickie James — will meet Perryton's Paul Edwards and Jimmy Reeves respectively in the 135-pound open class division. Dunham is an 18-year old Wesl Texas State student where he is a pre-dental major. The ex-Pam pa High- School athlete has had over 100 fights in an eight year career. He was the open class champion in the 126-pound div- sion in the 1960 regional tournament. Dunham 'lost in the state tournament to Frank Alba,, th e eventual state gloves champion. Last year the scrappy battler did not participate in boxing due to a football injury. James is.another fighter with a good record. He has been fighting in the ring for: 10 years and was runnerup in the 118 pound open rect, 12 indirect); semi-pro, 2, (both direct); sandlot, S (3 direct, 2 indirect); 2 officials (both indirect). Majority of direct fatalities were due to head or brain injuries, with spinal injuries the second most frequent cause, class division at the regional tourney in 1960. A West Texas State student, James returns to action ight with teammate Jim Arthur, i spectacular quarterback this )lustery night. It yt&s the block- msting thrusts of Bryan and the well - executed rollouts by Arthur that ripped the Rebel defense with gaping holes for large gains. Pampa's winning drive came on the heels of a Lee march that was thwarted at the Reapers 19. The big play in the series was a seven i yard scamper by Arthur on a 4th and three situation at his own 35, Lee rolled right hack, however, to threaten to take the ' victory away from their rivals. Quarter back Johnny Robison rolled to his left and galloped 5ft yards to the Pampa five before he was knocked out of bounds. .Two plays 'at left tackle failed to gain for Lee and fullback Keith Griffith was stopped at the two on third down. Robison fumbled the snap on fourth down and the Reapers gained possession at the one with five minutes remaining •The Reapers ran out the clock •with a sustained 96 - yard surge to the Lee one- as the game ended. Halfback Ennis Penland scooted 49 yards for the big play. Both clubs -threatened in the first period. ; Pampa took the kickoff and got to the Lee 19 before the Rebels threw them back to the 40, Lee promptly went to the Reapers two where the winners recovered a Jim Jamieson fumble.' ••-.. • - ' ..-"-- •', \. .:•• ' out of danger. Three Lee fumbles deep in Pampa territory was the turning point as it halted touchdown bids by the Rebs. , Great line play by Pampa's Phillip Klarener, Lurry Leonard, Luster, Terrell Bullock,, Ricky Maynard, Myron Scribner and Waylon Bullard enabled Bryan and Arthur to romp free. last year, but he impressed almost everyone with his fine defensive performance Thursday. He certainly made a believer out of the Clarendon 6-4 center when the 6-5 Harvester post man crammed several of his opponent's shots back where they originated. Wayne Kries, « 5-10 letterman guard, and Ronnie Chase, a 5-7 letterman guard did very w e 1,1. Chase broke his leg playing baseball this past summer and it definitely handicaps him. But he oiUl YKAW PA;,IPA DAILY .'uiwa FRIDAY, NOVEMftEft 1, lilt Philadelphia And Bears To Tangle In Top Game after a year's absence due to illness- Program director, Cliff D u n- ham stated that Pampa would like to regain some of its prestige from Perryton after the Perryton Pee Wees won the regional tournament last year by one p-oint over the local fighters. Admission for the bouts will be 75 cents for adults and 25 cents for children- Andy Grim, a 65-pound battler, and Roy Lumpkin, a 70 - pound 'scrapper, will be looking for their third straight wins of the season. Both fighters scored victories in each of the first two weeks, A bad snap on an attempted punt led to the first score by Lee, By United Press International Sooner or later, Sonny Jurgensen and his fine pass-catchers are bound to run into a ganged-up aerial defense, so don't be surprised if the Philadelphia Eagles spring their latent running game against the Chicago Bears Sunday. The Eagles were favored by 3 points in this National Football League game-of-the-week> at Philadelphia. This is the first clash between these two teams since 1955, Of the 15 games previously played between them, the Eagles have won only ^ once. Although,the Eagles have three excellent' running backs in Clarence Peaks, Billy Barnes and Ted Dean, they have preferred the aerial route of Jurgensen to Tom my McDonald, Bobby Walston and Pete Retzlaff. for their touch down drives. Statistically, the Eagles have gone through the air for 68,7 ol their yardage. In edging the Washington Redskins last weekend, they gained 436 yards by Sans Williams and Jamieson work-1 passing and had a rushing deficit ed the ball from the Reaper's 30 to 'the nine where Jamieson circled right end for the score. After an exchange of fumbles following the kickoff. the Reapers rolled 51 yards to tie the count, Arthur, Bryan and Penland carried to the one - foot line where the capable Pampa quarterback rode over his right guard for the tally with 1:45 to play in the half. Lee's safety was set up by a drive to the Reaper five before Pampa's Darrell Luster recovered a fumble. Griffith sparked'the surge with a 42 • yard dash to the 20. Moments later, Arthur flipped a CASCADE MELLOW AS MOONLIGHT FROM THE LIFE AND VIGOR OF THE GRAIN KOTHM STRAIGHT BQDBBONPfc STRAIGHT BOUR80M WHISKtY • H PROOF GE$, *. wcm ojsmuHq co.. ioyisvitu. f 12 yards. The Bears, according to Coach George Halas, "are improving with every ' game," They have discouraging season start and came m {or a few minutes and promptly connected for three field goals and ft pair ef important Feeds to Matson for two more goals. Culley said Wednesday that experience and reserve depth would be the Harvesters weak points. The scrimmage Thursday proved him right in that respect, but it is early and the inexperienced boys have plenty of time to come around before the conference state opens. The junior high ball game Thursday night between the Lee . Rebels and the Pampa Reapers i was as thrilling a battle as we 1 have witnessed this season. ' Pampa's Reapers didn't look like the same club we saw lose to Oruver 30-0 and to Phillips 30-14. Despite the bitter, cold weather a large crowd turned out to witness the struggle and they weren't disappointed for it was a slam- bang affair. We hit on 20 of 25 games last week to raise our season predic- diction 10 134 right, 37 wrong, 4 ties for a .777 average.' This week we feel like: Pnmpa over Lubbock—The Harvesters will thrill the home fans with a victory over the Westerners in a wide open offensive duel. Stinnett over Gruver—We flipped a cojn and it landed for the Rattlers. Palo Duro over Tascosa — This is more of a hoping prediction. But the Dons have a fine club but could lose because of a poor defense.
