I I I IIII III Thursday, November 1, 1973 Volume II, No. 35 I I I i II I II Bronchos to meet McLean; It's do or die from now on It's do or die from now on for the Clarendon Bronchos, and they'll have the chance to do one of the two Friday night at 7:30 when they meet the McLean Tigers at McLean. Ordinarily, there wouldn't be much worry about the upcoming game, but after the Broncs got clobbered by the Claude Mustangs last Friday night, the Broncs have to worry about every game until the end of the season, and they have that thing over their head that any team could slip up and win. The Bronchos defeated Memphis 13-12 week before last for what was considered a clear march to the district championship, but the Claude Mustangs came into town and upset the Bronchos' apple cart with a stunning 29-19 win. The win for Claude put the district in a 3-way tie for first place, with Claude, Clarendon and Memphis each sharing in the lead. if, when the season ends, all have won the rest of their games, a flip of the coin would decide' the district winner. If Claude should lose a game, which is highly possible, then Clarendon would automatically win district and go to the p|ayoffs. However, if Clarendon should lose one of the three remaining games, the Broncs would be out of the running for the crown. That's why it's do or die for the next three Friday nights. And any one of the three remaining opponents could pull the upset if conditions are exactly right. McLean is the biggest team the Bronchos have faced, physically. They boast several boys over the 200-pound mark, and a running game that isn't that easy to shut down. The Tigers lost a squeaker to Claude, 7-6, while leading the Mustangs in rushing. They haven't been successful thus far because of mistakes, but a team can erase those mistakes and challenge a game favorite any night, as witnessed in the game with Claude. The Tigers will catch the Bronchos at a poor time, too, since Clarendon's star Kenneth Reese and Gary Shields are both out with injuries. Reese was missed against Claude. He plays a major role in both the offensive and defensive units. Shields will be missed on both units, also. The Bronches will be trying to overcome the fumble-itis which Hedden impressed with his Bulldogs Saturday, October 27, a much-improved Bulldog basketball team travelled to Liberal, Kansas, to take on Seward County Junior College in a controlled scrimmage. Coach Jack Hedden was impressed by the performance of his team, and said "I felt like we outplayed them, although we didn't keep a score or run the clock." "We hadequite a bit of improvement over last week," Hedden said, referring to the Bulldog's first scrimmage against Cameron State of Lawton, Oklahoma. "Our execution improved, our offense and timing improved and our shooting is good. It was just an overall improvement on offense.' Hedden was not so enthused over his defense. "We need to work on the defense some," he said. "We're not putting enough pressure on the ball. That is the main thing we will be concentrating on this week in practice." Only ten players made the trip to Liberal for the scrimmage Saturday. Steve Amerin and Joe Evans, both freshmen, stayed in Clarendon due to recurrences of high school knee injuries. Both players are expected to be all right soon, and neither is expected to miss any of the regular season. The Bulldogs scrimmaged Seward County again yesterday at three o'clock when Seward returned the scrimmage. Clarendon has two more scrimmages before the season starts, at Cameron State this Saturday and at Southwestern State in Weatherford, Oklahoma the following week. The regular season starts November 12 with the Panhandle Junior Varsity, but conference play does not begin until November 29 with Western Texas Junior College, the seventh rated team*. The Bulldogs do not take on conference favorite Howard County Junior College until December 10, in what will probably be the first showdown over the conference lead. Hedden said, "This year's team will be exciting to watch and we will score well." He is hoping for support from the townspeople for the Bulldog's race for the top of the conference. has plagued them all year, especially against Claude and Memphis. At any rate, the Bronchos will still be heavy favorites to defeat the Tigers, and they'll be favored to win the rest of the scheduled games. And it's likely that they'll be back with their winning ways Friday night. THE By DEAN SINGLETON AS EVERYONE knows, the Mideast controversy between Israel and Egypt has flared again. And immediately when I heard the first news report of the fighting a few days ago, I started worrying about the United States getting involved in the mess. If there's anything the United States doesn't need, it's another war on its hands. And I'm scared to death that we're going to end up in it. 1 remember a little country, South Vietnam, that got into a little war with a little country called North Vietnam. The U.S. stayed out of the war, but sent equipment to aid South Vietnam. Then, the U. S. sent some "advisers" to aid in the situation while they tried to talk peace. Then, it seems, the U. S. sent a few troops to help out. And, before too long, the U. S. had 500,000 troops in Vietnam getting their tails whipped all to hock while South Vietnam enjoyed the economic benefits of it all and kept on fighting to keep these benefits flowing. After 100,000 American men got killed, the U. S. started trying to get what Nixon called "A just and lasting peace," turned around and ran like scared ducks, and called it a victory. And all that resulted out of the war was a lot of dead Americans and a country half-way split with discord. The Israelis and Egyptians have been fighting for centuries. They're born with the instinct to fight, they're taught all their lives to fight, nd they'll always fight, If we leave thvm alone, they'll fight for centuries more, but if we stick our big nose into the mess, we'll end their fighting by ending the world with a nuclear war. There's no way, just no way, that we can help matters by getting involved in the Mideast War. That bunch wouldn't be happy if they weren't fighting. And the United States wouldn't accomplish anything if it got into the fuss. Now says you, what if the Russians send troops to Egypt? Well, let'em. Just because Russia wants to fight a war doesn't mean that we do. It seems to me that the Israelites played the role of the bully in this skirmish anyhow. If they don't want to fight, maybe they'd better stay on their side of "the river. At any rate, the United states better stay out of the whole mess over there and worry about the mess over here. "This is a grave error," commented the corpse as it was being lowered into the wrong hole.
