Blount Redskins Whip Blountsville 6 To 0

The Blount High Redskins finished the 1939 season in a blaze of glory Thanksgiving Day when they defeated their age-old rival, Blountsville, by a count of 6 to 0 in the Homecoming Day game, which was played in the new stadium at Oneonta.

One of the largest crowds ever to witness a football game in Oneonta attended the hard-fought battle and viewed the dedication ceremony for the new stadium. In the dedication address given by Miss Ruth Wilson, president of the 1938 class, the name of Memorial Stadium was given to the field.

During the game Blount made the only score in the second period when Captain Hitt plunged over from the 2-foot line. Blountsville threatened in the first quarter when Gibbs ran a punt back deep into Redskin territory. They drove the ball down to the 6- yard line where the attack bogged down. Maynor Drug Co. Opens Pharmaceutical Dept.

Ebb Maynor, proprietor of the business says that the Maynor Drug Co., which has here-to-fore dealt in drug sundries, will now be prepared to fill any prescription your physician may give you.

Mr. Maynor announces that he has secured the services of Dr. Fitzhugh Graves as head of the new department. Dr. Graves, who started out on his career as pharmacist in Oneonta with Stansberry Drug Company twenty years ago, has practiced his profession in Birmingham and other parts of Alabama since that time.
