Feeling pretty good over the outcome of a  successful football season without a defeat, Coach Hinderliter and his Blue Jays will stage a game on the Pierce-Rupe field Friday evening of this week. Two teams made up from the big Jay squad will compete for honors. An admission of 40 cents will be charged, the proceeds to be used in helping defray expenses of the approaching “R” Club letterman’s banquet for the football squad and the purchase of the traditional gold footballs which will be awarded those entitled to this trophy. Having disposed of all the opponents the past two seasons, the Jays will now show the home folks what they can do against one another.
