The average engine knock is due to carbon, and means you're wasting fuel. What do your wear to drive? For women, short skirts are best; maxis, bell-bottoms and palazzo pants can cause accidents If they get caught on floor pedals. Faulty plugs can waste as much as 10 per cent of the gas you buy. Keep spark plugs clean and prbperly gapped. If windshield wiper blades smudge or streak, it may be the weather, not the wear. In ureas where atmospheric zone Is high, such as California and Florida, wiper blades can lose their efficiency in three months withoug even being turned OH.

RODDY'S 66 Highway 287 East Clarendon, Texas Howdy Partners! The Colts played a really good game last week against Claude to make a tie, 8-8. We're proud of all of you. The pep rally was pretty good last week. Coach B.'s been across the hall all these years and still doesn't knowhow to speak correctly! Now our cheerleaders are on somebody's SECOND semester failing list! The pep squad didn't get to take the bus to Claude, due to a fuel shortage. But we would like to extend our appreciation to Mrs. Green and Mrs. Stepp for providing their cars, even if we did have a flat on the way back. Thanks, Coach B., for changing the flat for us: Irvin T. was practicing his song directing coming back from the football game the other night. Tonight the 8th grade Colts will play McLean, here, and the 7th graders will play Shamrock there at 6:00. All you fans get out and fill up the stands! Bobby E. and Ricky Gerner act as though they're going to really have a blast on Halloween. The rest of the 8th grade may be planning to join them?? Seventh grade, can't ya'll think of better excuses than what you've been turning in to Mrs. N.? Tommy L.'s bow.tie was so cute[ All of our cheerleaders can do cartwheels except for poor little Sparky. Keep trying, though. This is a warning to Connie M. and Wayne R. You'd better quit winking in history[ The 1st graders sure know how to entertain 8A with "Wobblin Gobblin." School was out at 3:30 Wednesday for a teachers' meeting. There were a lot of leaps for joy[ Mr. Bowen was seen trying to lead cheers in band. Nice try, Mr. B. Karen F. and Phil K. made a record of "going steady" for only five minutes. C 'A,i geg crazy over "older men"! Poor Jamie C.'s been coming to school with holes in her clothes [ Sharon L., who's your "secret" eighth grader? Christi T., have you had bad luck this week? MiUie H., what's written on the back of your notebook? No wonder Ellen G. gets sweeter in history! Vicki F.'s new saying is "Oh Romeo Topper," but we'd like to know what happened to "Spit Curl Clint"? Sheryl B., whose snuggly sweater do you have? John H., we know your eyes are pretty and blue, but you're taking advantage of them. Ken S., what makes your ears get so red? Coach C., what's this about pulling a "Leeper" and fainting? All you fans come fill the stands to prove that Colts are Number One!I Here's- Johnny! •.. taking style in stride with his ha0dsome twill suit of pure wool. Wool." It's got life. And there's a lot of life in the styling too, as you can see. All the right touches. All the right trims. And the ' all-right tailoring Johnny's clothes are: known for. And there's a color ' coordinated cotton suede vest, too. Exclusively designed Johnny Carson shirts and ties get together a look that's up-to-the-minute and great. 2a. Hawee:,it didn't make ) of us here in Clarendon believe that thee Broncs are anything less than No. 1 in 2A. We still believe we have the best team in our district and that Claude's winning was purely accidental. We all still have faith and confidence in the Clarendon Bronchos, and we'll be behind them all the way. We're still in the district race and we plan to remain there..period. The Spirit at CHS could have been a little "Lighter" last week. I suppose we were just exhausted from exerting so much energy the week before. The pep rally was the most fired-up part of the whole week. The theme for the cheerleader's skit was the same as the theme of the ball decorations..."Halloween•" Coach Keeney gave the pep talk, and after much pulling and banging, Rodney and Jimmy (our two "Strong" captains!) succeeded in opening the SPIRIT JUG. The pep rally ended with the singing of the school song. TheH$ Spanish Club worked all last week on the plans for the dance after the football game. The Spanish I and II-lll classes made several pinatas during the week. They were made of papier-mache and balloons and decorated with colored tissue paper. These were filled with candy and hung in the cafeteria. During the dance, volunteers were blindfolded and given a baseball bat. Then after being spun around and around, they tried to break the pinatas. Randy Crosljn tried his hardest to break one, but he did have some difficulty getting started. The Spanish Club had lots of food on hand for the hungry athletes...sandwiches, cookies, pralines and even some Mexican "Nochos:" Everyone seemed to have a good time...regardless of the circumstances...and the Spanish Club under the supervision and guidance of Mrs. Bernie Green made about $62.00. The money earned will be used for expenses at the State Convention to be held during March in San Antonio. Also, I would like to thank Scott Hamilton for his contribution to: the dance. The Future Teachers of America will go to Canyon Tuesday, November 6. The District 16 Convention will be held on the W.T. Campus. Clarendon's Chapter will host a workshop for Human Relations, and Clarendon will nominate a candidate, Mona Robinson, for a district office• Clarendon will also have voting delegates for the election of officers. The bus for Canyon is scheduled to leave at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday morning. All eligible members are urged to attend this convention• Good Luck to Mona! Debble Robertson has been having all kinds of problems lately. Danny has been sick and in bed. And if that wasn't enough to worry about, some of those Owls 15 miles down the road began calling her. She finally got rid of them...with the help of her morn and Danny. Now, if she can just get Danny well everything will be fine! Kim Newhouse spent the weekend in Nebraska where she visited some old friends and a college she is considering attending after graduation. Among her many interesting experiences, was a wreck. The car she was driving came out without a seratCh buff'you shold've seen the other carT"No .... injuries resulted fromihe wreckl but Iirn did come home with a chipped tooth. I wonder how that happened? Some of the freshmen girls had another giggling session Friday night. Christi Cagle hosted the all-night party...and finally by 3:00 a.m. the house was quiet! Mr. and Mrs. Charles Dunn from Dallas, daughter Susie and one of Susie's friends, Jan,, visited Mr. and Mrs. Bernie Green over the weekend. They all attended the Tech-SMU game in Lubbock. Tracy Cagle and Shauna Hardin also attended the game. Many other familiar faces were seen at Lubbock ever the weekend. Some pleasant...others not so pleasant. I'm sure we are all very sorry about Gary Shield's injury during the game last Friday. He hurt his knee and is reported to be improving gradually. Hurry up and get back to school, Gary!! Freda White has had some bad luck lately, too. We hope her injury is quickly corrected and she is back to normal in no time. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Bill Moss on their recent marriage. The bride is the former Miss Vicki Childs, a 1973 graduate from CHS. The groom is originally from Fritch. My special thanks to Belinda Tanner for her help Friday afternoon. I got it this week!! Anthony Knowles and Tmmy Hill ran into each other Saturday. Johnny Gerner's lip is healing and Tami is certainly glad for that ! Halloween was yesterday. I hope all the high school kids whom the adults think are always misbehaving managed to have fun anyway--rain wouldn't really stop the fun, would it? The Seniors of 74 are playing a part in the hi-centennial celebration in 1976. Each member of our class will write a report over some part of the history of Donley County. At the end of the year, these will be compiled into one story for the tourists to read during the celebration in '76. It's work--hard work--to get these research papers written accurately, but it will be well worth the time and effort once the project is completed. • The Brdnchos play the McLean Tigers in McLean Friday night. Game time is 7:30. The pep rally is at 3:30. All Broncho fans are urged to attend both the pep rally and the game. Let's Go Brones! Beat McLean!!
