Last year, Weber was humbled by the tartars. Theyproceeded to trounce the wildcats 30to 7. One thing that wont hold the local boys back is the fact that Compton is twice the size of Weber.Strength in NumbersIf you will recall LACC was also much larger than our Ogden school, and what a shellacing our boys gave them. Thus, the saying, strength in numbers is not always a determining factor, and the wildcats would enjoy handing the coast team a defeat.Also in the game last year, held in Ogden, the Weber boys grabbed the ball, and in the first five minutes of play swept the field to score and convert with the extra point. This was the first time in two Compton seasons that they had been scored on first by any team.Two TouchdownsCompton came back in the second quarter with an aggressive and spirited squad. They proceeded to roll up two touchdowns and almost had one more when the gun went off, ending the first half.The tartars began to show their fine action in the last even more impressively as they rolled into Weber territory so often that the wildcats really felt at home on their own side of the field.Compton FavoredThe Compton club will be the favorites due to the fact that the Ogden boys will have traveled a long way and are not used to the coast climate. Although with every other evident consideration, the local mentory are expected to sparkle.Glendale contest, Nov. 11. will be a little more in favor of Weber, provided that the wildcats do not sustain any injuries in the game with Compton. They will have had a brief rest and enough time to consider new plays to be used. In short, they will be ready for anything Glendale may happen to turn loose.Band SupportsMuch support will be given the team by the well organized and capable band, under Delmar Dick-son's direction. The. AMS AWS smoker held last week was a determining factor in the success of the team's jaunt to the coast, because of the money that it provided for the band.WHIP CLUBActivities of the Whip Club have begun with new vigor this year. Intricate drills, various activities and a trip to California are being planned. Taking the spotlight this week, was the appointment of of-ficers.They are Doris Hansen, president; Betty Hammon, vice president; Darlene Tingey, secretary; Arjene Storey, treasurer; and Carol Payne, reporter. Also of interest was the acceptance of twelve new members, they are Janet Anderson, Betty Blakey, La Rue Daniels, Margie Mills, Marian Mower, Edith Pearce, Jo Anne Stallings, La Rue Maw, Naomi Warner, Joyce Watts, Gayle Smith, and Betty Whaley.WHIP CLUBWhip club returned from Los Angeles with lots of news and experiences to tell the student body.Aching backs and cold feet were only two of the souvenirs the girls could bring home. The memory of spending a day at Santa Monica beach, touring Hollywood, and eating at the Farmer's Market are souvenirs that have passed but are not forgotten.WHIPSkating and good food highlighted Whips events Feb. 16 when the girls went to the Berthana roller rink followed by dinner at Kay's Noodle Parlor.Newly elected president, Paula Holmes, and vice president, Carol Johnson, are responsible for the drills at home basketball games that have received such complimentary remarks from Weber fans.
