Rock Port followers of the Blue Jays journeyed to Tarkio Friday evening enmasse to watch their favorites down the eastsiders in the annual football game between the two teams. The local rooters had the satisfaction of seeing the Jays win the game by a score of 9 to 0. The turnout at the game was without question the largest crowd that will see a football game in Tarkio this season, as few visiting towns will send as many spectators with their teams as did Rock Port. It is said that when the Jays play in the college town, the crowds are far greater than attend any other contest there, whether it is a college or high school competition. The same is usually true when Tarkio plays a return game in Rock Port. No other game on the schedule attracts the attendance than does a Tarkio-Rock Port contest.
