WOMAN'S CLUB MEETING FOR DECEMBER HELD Christmas was very much in evi- dence in the club rooms for the De- cember meeting of the Homervi11~ Woman's Club. Red candies and bells, Christmas greens, and pine cones were used effectively in all the ap- propriate places. Mrs. H. C. Morgan and Mrs. M. J. McDuffie were program chairmen for the meeting and presented Mrs. F. W. Jernigan and the Youth Choir in two Christmas numbers. Next, Mary Kate Morgan gave two readings sym- bolic of the Christmas season. Fol- Win Three- Girls Drop Two BOYS CONTINUE WINNING BY DEFEATING BLACKSHEAR, WAYCROSS, RAY CITY. (By Reporter) The Homerville High basketball teams split the bill with Blackshear on December 6. The girls lost by two points and the boys won by 33 points. The line-ups were as follows: Hem. (18) GIRLS Black. (20) Gilley, f 14 Pittman, f 3 O. Jeffords, f 9 Donaldson, f 5 F.

Blackshear, E. Strickland (1). Weycross The story in Waycross was quite different, the Pantherettes turning in the best playing of the current sea- son. It was a victory for all, includ- ing the spectators, but I think a ma- jority of the credit needs to go to the guards for holding down Way- cross' No. 16 from her original 30 points a game to a mere 13. The boys didn't play up to par and gave us a denced by the fact that they came out way behind their opponents when the final whistle blew. The forwards played a good game, but Ray City's beaverettes didn't seem to be able to miss no matter what the angle which gave our guards a run for their money. The boy's game was a comedy of errors if foUls are any indication of such a thing. There were seventy- two fouls called in this game, Ray City's whole first string going out on fouls. The local boys racked up a score of 62, but if they had played their usual kind of ball the score board would probably have run out of points. The line-ups were as fol- lows: Hem. (34) GIRLS Ray City (49) Gilley, f 15 Bradford, f 9! Blitch, f 9 F. Long, f 5 Newborn, g Peagler, g Futch, g White, g Sirmans. g Substitutions: Homerville, O Jet- fords (2), N. Jeffords, D. R.
