Anderson Valley was the third game of the year for the Ukiah unit, but the first since the Eagles took over.

The ten dollar EXTRA cash prize will be awarded to the candidate turning in the most money during the £3cond period of the campaign, regardless ot district, or division. Any candidate regardless of where they stand today, has an equal chance to annex this extra cash prize. The reason for this added generosity, considering that we have already displayed an abundance of same in awarding twelve beauty scliool tuitions and twelve basiness college scholarships (tor those willing to work for them) besides daily pay checks and bonus checks, Is tiot motivated by charity. We expect some spirited work carried on by the contestants and those who entered late or are Just getting started, will have as good a chance to capture the EXTRA $10 cosh prize as anyone who entered at an earlier date. All candidates will receive their pay checks just the same, and the one winning the EXTRA prize will also be paid commissions. Could anything be fairer or more liberal than this? Another reason for this offer is that we expect some real conacien- tlotis work by everyone, which will partly repay us for this extra prize added to the cost of the campaign. There Is no limit to the amount of money any contestant can earn during the "second period." Let's go! That $10 EXTRA PRIZE can be YOURS!
