Just what Sterling is up against at De Kalb next Friday night was clearly shown by De Kalb's 46 to 7 victory at Belvkiere. That means that De Kclb will be the favorite but Sterling is not conceding De Kalb the victory. Paul Purr was one of two De 1Mb scoute in attendance at the Sterung-Dixon game. Rock Palls is certainly breexing along as expected. Rock Falls goes to Rochelle next Friday night for a game with a team that is also undefeated in Rock River Valley conference play but certainly not in a class with the green and black.
