There will be many ways fans. sporkswriters, broadcasters and even the coaches and players will try to figm'e a'head of time just wha,t will h.appen. But t~he final re suit, won't a,l,wa~'s ,be the way they had hoped or thought. And glass balls, hunches, past performances none of these will work everytime. As a m,atter of fact ~hey may not work as often as they should. With a lot of ,new coaches and new players moving into tt~e sec- tional gridiroI~ spotlight this sea- son for the firs*~ time, there is sure to be a lot of surprises and a lot of disap.pointments. And so we might just as well see how many of each, or both our predictions can produce this week. Turnim; first to ~,ne big t)attle which Jefferson county grid fa,ns are looking forward to in @harle~ Town Saturday, the Romney High Pioners are going to find a bunc:h of Panthers harder to handle this week than the I~dians they ta'ck- led las,t week in 'Berkeley Springs. As a matter ol fact, th Pan~hers will be both stronger a,nd more move over to mght work. Deep Sun, undefeated sprint star of the Charles Town meet and co-holder ot the world record for 3~i furlc.ngs, will stay on for another shot at Shenandoah's lightning-fast s:rip, Johnson said. Deep Sun tied the world mark in his only apI:earanee at the night track last, July 1 1, and officials are hopetul that he will set, a new mark in sub,-'eqoent races at the abbrewiated distance. ,Most of t'he cluL~ouse work has gone i.nto the Starlight Terrace dining room which will present a new appearance Ior its patrons, In additAon to weatherizing contrac- ;tots have installed an oooustical cagy t'han were the Indians and it i west of the Alleg'henies in Roho- should be a successful opening for both Church, erected in 1786 in Coaches Richard Harmison, and what was to become Monroe coun Ronnie Phillips at Charles Town.ty, W.
