- Principal impetus for revival of the ancjsnt Indian designs has come from Arthur M.
MoKray, whose interest in perpetuating the oil culture led him first into research and then
to passing on his knowledge to Zone and Repu illc residents.
,t The Indian craftsmen of long ago honor ;d their gods and reflected the life of the world
around them by painting bold designs on their pottery and humble household vessels.
Today this art is reflected in authentic reproductions painted on hand-hewn wooden
trays, bowls and plaques known as bateas by hundreds of enthusiastic devotees who.,
learned their skill at the many free classes co iducted by MoKray.

First Touchdown of Season
' By TREVOR SIMONS
a virtually flooded field, the results of a tor-
rential pre-game rainfall that caused a 20-minute delay
in the starting time, Junior College played Athletic Club to
an upset 6-6 deadlock at Balboa Stadium last night.
It was J. C.'s first score of the current season and a
moral victory for the Green Devils who had been tabbed
The first half of the game went
along quietly enough right down
to the final seconds of the second
Prior to the Athletic Club's
lightning-like score St the end of
that period both teams p'aying e e-venly
venly e-venly and though most of the ac action
tion action was concentrated on Uhe J.C.
side of the field, there was really
no serious threat of a score.
J. C. without the services of
punt specialist Donald Alexander,
sidelined with a virus, had trou-
b'e booting the soggy ball out of
the trouble area.
But. oddly enough, fumbles
were held to a minimum, with
only three for College .and a
single one for A.C. ; and College
only faied to recover one of
their three fumbles.
The Green Devils actually set
up the Athletic Club's score when,
with less than' minute to play
in the half, they elected not to
boot pn fourth down with 12 yards
to go on their own 30.
A pas's by Jack Hammond fell
incomplete to give A.C. the break
they needed for a tally.
Bill McKeown tossed one to
Bill Rankin, the pass being coirf coirf-pleted
pleted coirf-pleted after coming off the fingers
of J. C.'s Jim Morris.
From the 17-yard line, Mc Mc-Keown

the J.C. end zone.

which ultimately proved to be so
necessary for victory. McKeown a a-gain

Balboa Slight Favorite
Over Cristobal Tonight
By TREVOR SIMONS
C.istobal High School officials
are preparing to handle another

Both the Tigers and Bulldogs
have scored single wins at the ex expense

decision over College was by a
6-0 count while Balboa scored a
decisive 14-0 win at Balboa Sta
dium last Friday night.
Each of the two top contenders
for the Interschool football title
have' played the Athletic Club
once, the Tigers boasting a 6-0 win
in the that one while the Bulldogs
fell victims to the A.C. by a 7-6
On the strength of that pre previous
vious previous record, both teams would
be conceded .an even, chance to
post a victory in this all-important
game at Mt. Hope Stadium
tonight; but with the Tiger cen center
ter center and line-backer definitely out
of the line-up, Balboa High are
now posted as slight favorites
to win in their march for a suc successful

The game is a "must" for both
teams, for the "winner will be vir virtually

stumbling-block being an injury-
