BLAKELY HI WILL NOT PLAY
T 1 year the Blakely high school
will not have a Thanksgiving foot
ball game. Due to the uncertainty
at t beginning of the season; cou
plet vitli the illness of Mr. Man
glia. , the Blakely coach, a full
schedule was not completed. In fact,

! the schedule so far was largely the
■work of Chas. Tarver, the manager
|of the Blakely Hi football squad.
| Desperate efforts were made to get a
Thanksgiving game, but the manage
ment found full schedules. This year
i it is lioped to present a full schedule
,! for the 1925 gridiron season before
! the close of school. Blakely began
to support the team and evince more
interest in the game than in former i
1 years, and it is the intention of the
; local team to play at least half of
; the football games in Blakely next
The past season was by no moans!
• 1 a poor one for the “Bob Cats.’’ They
! played eight games, 5 away and >
at homo. Blakely Hi played entire-'
; ly out of her class with every U :;m|
except Donalsqnville. This state-j
nient is made with reference io tno:
cities where the high schools were
t located. Dothan. Albany, Dawson
! and Eufaula are all much larger
j towns than Blakely, while Newton In
stitute is a Junior College at New
Dothan Hi defeated Blakely Hi 18
to 0. in a former game Blakely
i went down 48-0.
Eufaula Hi got the game in Eu
fauli 7-0. Blakely HI never has felt
j good about that game.
I Donalsonville was smothered in
' Blakely 90-0 and later easily defeat
led on their own grounds 19-0.
j With a 70-0 defeat ringing in their
1 ears from last year, the Bob Cats
j went to Albany and held the Albany
Indians to a 14-6 score and really
■ outplayed the Albany boys during
; the first half of the game. Lack oi :
■ practice was an item here.
I Bainbridge beat Blakely last year
i 44-0. This year it took all they
> could do to make ar extra touch
l down, the score being 14-7.
• j The Boh (tats really played their
| best game against Newton Insti
: j tute and won 6-0. A scoreless tie
; tute and won 6-0.
i A scoreless tie was the result o'
l the game with Dawson, with a weak
. ened team.
The season stands: Played 8, won
3, lost 4, tied 1.
The big item to w hich the Blakely
boys point with pride Is that while
they lost 1 games, no team was able
to run away with a game, Dothan
Hi piling up only IS points, the larg
est score made on them. Their goal
line was never crossed on their
i home grounds.
SHORT FOOTBALL NOTES.
The Georgia Freshmen defeated the
Florida Freshmen at Bainbridge last
| Saturday 29-13. A crowd of o\ er 3000 '
j people saw the game.
The football squad of the Blakely
j High School w ill hold a banquet at
i the lunch room of the high school
■on the first Tuesday in December.
At this meeting a captain and man
ager will be chosen for ihe 1925
The football boys of the Blakely

This will be carefully stored away
for next season. All of this and some ,
additional uniforms will be needed
for the big squad of 1925 and it is
hoped to add a tackling dummy and
dumping bags. The Bob Cats should
present a really championship outfit
next year, since they lose only two
regulars and three subs from the
present team, and the prospects of
a large bunch of new material is
