In the fourth quarter the boys did equally as well in scoring ten more points to Reed's two. The crowd saw the same team that had startsd the two previous out-of- town games except that "Doc" Sanford was ai a guard position and Watson at the forward post.

Larman Post No. 128, American Legion held an important regular meeting in the new Community Building witb, a large crowd in attendance.

A large proportion of the local membership was on hand, including members from Harrison, Rosebush and Lake, and In addition twenty-nine visitors from neighboring Posts. This is the first time that the Ceremony of initiation has been conducted in Clare or anywhere in this part of Michigan; no other Post in this district has ever conducted au Initiation, witli the exception of Bay City which has recently organized a team and has conducted a few of the Ceremonies, Until recently this service was optional and it was not customary to use it. However, the National Legion Organisation recently made it mandatory for all Posts to initiates according to the ritual all new members, that is all World" War Veterans jo mine- tha American Legion for the first time. This year three World War Veterans, none of wbom had ever been members r.t the American Legion be-r fore, desired to unite with tho organization and paid their dues to the. local Post for 1935 and it was for: their benefit that the Ceremony was; held. Due to the fact that several neighboring Posts are going to conduct a similiar service with the near future it occasioned a great deal of interest in Clare and neighboring towns. After the meeting had been duly- opened tho Clare officers vacated; their stations and the members ofe the Bay City Initiatory team assumed' the same, as follows: Commander, Edward J. Donoghue. Acting Past Commander, Leslie Pi Kefgen. First Vice Commander, William Mayhew. Adjutant, Leslie R. Chase.

Players Feel Grateful The Clare High students are to be congratulated upon the success of the pom-pom sale. The team was badljf in need of new suits and with the Athletic Association so much in debt it seemed wise not to incur further obligations. But Coach Brown came to the front with tlie suggestion that has made the suits an actuality. He suggested the sale of pom-poms and with the-able assistance of Mr. Bates and loyal student followers, has raised the necessary money. Net receipts of $52.00 was raised during the three days of the sale and practically all students were waving these pompoms about the school showing their loyalty to the team. What a riot of color and fun these pom-poms made can only be imagined. The stands- Wednesday night were full of pompoms and when the Band played "On Clare High School" there was never a more Inspiring sight than those students singing their "Fight Song". The suits selected are Kelly green* throughout with white numerals on front and back and a white web belt, on the pants. You can't imagine how they'll look but you can see them in their next home game January 18th. So "On Clare High School, On to Victory," for that is the theme song these days with tbe team making the best early season showing in several years. And t he team gives many thanks to their loyal student followers and loyal fans and to Coach. Brown and Mr. Bates.
