'The game was truly an exciting one. The Bronchos out-played Stinnett in almost everything--except the number of points scored, of course. And that's what counts! The Broncs kept the ball for almost the whole first quarter. The second quarter beat us, though. The Rattlers scored all of their touchdowns in the first half. The Bronchos did not allow Stinnett to score at all in the second half. So, as you can see, it was some game. Naturally, the Broncho fans were a little disappointed at the outcome of the game, but the ".hurt" soon passed over. We realize that Clarendon once again had the #1 team in district 2A, and that our district was represented as well as it could have been represented. For 10 seniors, Friday night was their last game. These ten seniors were all outstanding players for our great team. They are: Gary Shields, Kenneth Reese. Stan Shelton. Jerry Holland, Johnny Gerner, Scott Martin, Donnie Putman, Tommy Hill, Rodney Hicks and Jimmy Floyd. And. of course, we couldn't have been successful without the other members of the team. Congratulations to the 1973 Bronchos and to the Coaches. Congratulations are also in order for the 1st and 2nd all district teams. Kenneth King, Jimmy Floyd and Danny Monroe made 1st team offense. Jimmy Floyd made 1st team defense. Scott Martin and Rodney Hicks made 2nd team offense. Wayne Hardin and Tommy Hill made 2nd team defense. Wednesday afternoon, November 21, the students of CHS had short pep talk. And an amusing one at that. Then, Friday afternoon there was a send-off for the Broncs. It was very spirited--and there was really a lot of excitement as Jean and Shauna rolled the victory Bell right into Johnny's carl Accidents do happen. I guess. Speaking of the Victory Bell. i would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Tanner for taking it to the game. It surely would have been a dull game without our beiHt Donna Odom became Mrs. Joe Thomas over the Thanksgiving holidays. They etjoyed a honeymoon in Red River, New Mexico. The Thomas' are residing here in Clarendon. Shauna (and Jean) received surprises last Monday. It was Shauna's birthday and she received 13 red roses--12 of them from New Jersey.

The next game for both teams will be Monday against Lakeview. Good Luck! TODAY'S MORAL DILEMMA moral dilemma at the doors of our schools, courts and churches. One of our national leaders recently discussed the moral decline of our nation in a television interview. He brought the problem right back home: the failure to "train up a child in the way he ought to go" [Prey. 22:6]. He laid the blame for today's CC Beauty Pageant planned December 4 Clarendon College will hold its annual Beamy Pageant on December 4. The annual affair, sponsored by the Student Senate of the college will be held at 7:00 p.m. in the Harned Sisters Fine Arts Center. Participants are selected from nominations received from each club on campus. Names are placed on ballots in each category and elected by the college student body.

The Pageant is open to the public. A formal dance .in the Clarendon College Cafeteria will follow the Beauty Pageant. Cotton activity steady Western Region cotton market activity remained at about the same level as a week ago, according to the Agricultural Marketing Service, USDA. Demand continued strong for most qualities of current ginnings with lengths of staple 31 and longer. Demand was weak for shorter qualities. Merchants and shippers actively sought cotton to fill previous commitments. Dqmestic mills purchased small lots for fill-in purposes. Foreign inquiries, particularly European, increased. Although growers were delivering the bulk of current ginnings against previous commitments, supplies of "free" cotton were increasing. Spot cotton prices were lower toward the last of the week. Growers in some locations began to reject bid prices. Harvesting efforts continued to make good progress over most of the Western Region. Some Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico locations received frost during the week. Harvesting has passed peak rates in California and Arizona. Growers were second-picking. Some California gins were in the process of ginning previously ricked seed cotton. Some South and Central Texas fields were dry enough to resume harvest or begin to prepare for the next crop. Harvesting was increasing on the Texas Plains and in Oklahoma. Booster Club time The Broncho Booster Club meeting day has been changed from Tueeday to Thursday night at 7:30 p.m. starting this week. He said that the schools and institutions of learning in our local communities do not teach moral concepts. He mentioned the decision of the courts to completely separate learning from the moral foundation of the Bible. We expect a person to grow up knowing that he should not lie cheat, or steal; but never teach him this in our public institutions. How can a child expect to grow up with a strong moral fiber when we don't team him the Ten Commandments in a class room? Even morality must be learned. Have we legislated the moral foundation of the Bible out of our learning process? Are we justified in imparting knowledge and learning on the wisdom of strong moral concepts? Has our system of government, with all of its good qualities, in order4o protect the seared conscience of a few who don't believe in God. laid the foundation for the moral corruption of our society? The story is told about a preacher who was discussing this point with a local business man. The business man was arguing against the validity of the moral code of the Bible. To get his point across the preachdr picked out the best pair of shoes in the house, stuck them under his arm, and headed for the door. The business man said. "Preacher. that's stealing," Whereupon. the minister replied. "Who said it is stealing?" If you do away with God's moral law. God's code 6f moral rightness, you have no basis for morality. If God never said, "Thou shalt not steal," then what makes stealing wrong? If God never said. "Thou shah not kill,'" then what makes murder wrong? If God never said, "Thou shalt not bare false witness (lie)," then what makes lying wrong? How can today's youth learn what is right and wrong if the moral guidelines have been taken from their books, their lessons, their schools, or their homes? The result is well educated persons with low moral standards. The Jewish historian closed out the historical account of the Israelite people,in the Book of Judges with these words: "hi those days ... every man did that which was flight in his own eyes" [Judges 21:25]. The highest moral standard, the historian was saying, was right as it was interpreted by each man. This period was called the Dark Ages of Israel's history. Right and wrong must be interpreted from the viewpoint of God's law, not man's. Corruption begins when men lay aside GOd's moral law to follow what is right or wrong as they see it. How do you know what is right or wrong? God says: "Thou sludt have no other gods before me; Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven Image; Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in val Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy...slx days thou labor...; Honor thy father Md thy mother that thy days may be long upon the land ...; Thou shalt not commit adultery; Thou shall not Idii; Thou ahalt not steal; Thou shalt not bear false witness; Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house; thy meighb'a wife; manservant; maidservant; nor his ox ... aur anything that is thy neighbor's" [Exodus 20:1-171. /
