High Primed For Tomorrow Local Gridders Meeting Martinsburg Here In Afternoon. In their last hard workout of the week 'before the C. V. A. League meeting with the Martinsburg High gridders on Saturday at the Ha- gerstoAvn High stadium, Coach Eddie Semler sent his boys through a lengthy offensive drill in which passing was stressed. Realizing that the West Virginians have a tough line to crack, especially so if the game is played on a heavy gridiron, the Maroon and Gray mentor has his boys readj to launch an air attack that should take them places. If it is a drj field the locals can well take care .of themselves without going to the airways. Before the evening session completed the varsity was given a brief drill on the defense Avith the second team shooting aerials to al corners of the field. No definite lineup for the Maroon and Gray has been announced as yet but reports have it that there are apt to be several changes in the starting lineup than that which took the field against Charles Town last Saturday. Martinsburg is reported in excellent condition and ready for the contest. The West Virginians have always given the locals a real battle and this year with both teams out of the pennant race the battle for runner-up or third place is certain to wax warm.

DO YOU WflNT MI-WINTER RflOlflTOfi PROTECIION H ERE'S THE WAY many car owners do it every year! They put in a couple of quarts of Du Pont "Zertme" early in the season for protection against rusting and sudden cold snaps. When winter gets down to real business, they add cnough"Zerone" for lower temperatures., A total of six quarts, put in as needed, can protect a car with an average size cooling system (15 quarts) for the entire winter. And sir quarts of "Zerone" cost only $1.50! You may need a little more or less, depending on the condition and capacity of your car radiator and the severity of winter in your neighborhood. But the efficiency of VZcronc" will save you real money. "Zcrone" prevents rust and corrosion, gives better dissipation of engine heat, avoids power losses. Protectyourcarwith"Zcrone" this very day! And remember, it's only $1.00 a gallon, 25t a. quart. WHEN OLD BOREAS BLOWS !!
