Panthers--- The defensive team of the Charles Town High Panthers for the most part turned in an outstanding obln their season's opener against Keyser High Friday night, Sept. 4, and leading that great defense were 'the powerful front line defensive five who played the key role in limiting Keyser's ground game to a mere 119 net yards. They are as shown (left to right)--Mickey Benton. 6-2, and 195-poumi senior tackle, who already is being rated as one of the toughest and top schoolboy gridders in the section and area; Greg Mills, 5-9 and 165-pound junior guard; Clayton Anders, 5-11 and 160-pound senior guard; Bobby Henry, a 5-6 and 155-pound senior tackle; and Bruce Moler, a 5-11 and 170-pound senior center. If this fighting five can continue to perform in future games as they did in the Charles Town opener, the future Panther opponents are going to find it a mogt difficult task to mount any kind of a respeet- able ground offenslve'agalnst Coach Doug Lutman's boys.

The idea is for two teams cam prised of former Charles Town High football players to meet in a game under the lights at 8 p. m. The team rosters would include boys who played on Charles Town High grid teams in the odd years, tangle with boys who played on the even years teams. Then fol- lowing the game the boys on both teams would get together for a dinner, the place and time to be decided later. Lorenz said in order to have such a unique battle on the grid iron, it will be necessary to have at least 15 players signed up to play for each team. Any and ~ll former Charles Town high players interested in being on either the odd, or even years team should contact Lorenz at the Charles Town High School at the earliest possible date, GO TO CHURCH SUNDAY One of the features of the nine.race card at Shenandoah Downs race track on Saturday ev~nijg, (Left right)--Carol Cotton, tra er of the hors Jim the T wne .
