Lion Runge and lAoH Perley were appointed as co-chairmen. Lion Burmeister and Lion Che¬ sak, chairmen of the trap-shoot and raffle gave the report on the coming event of November 6, 1960. Lion members received their tic¬ kets to be used by the public. The 1200 dollar expense paid by the Huntley Board of Educa¬ tion to the Lion's Club was dis¬ cussed. It was clarified that this $1200 plus $600, of the Huntley Lion's Club, and their labor, was used to pay the expense of the project of the school skating rink, ice skating, and tennis court. The totality of $1800 vi^s paid to the Ace Blacktop Company, Elgin, Illi¬ nois. The reason that the money was paid through tiie Huntley Lion's Club is that there would be one central paying agent; and the original onset of the project was to be of the school and the Lion's Club with the original thought for the project being the Huntley Lion's Club. The October meeting of Octol>er 11, 1960, is to be guest night and new potential member night. The meeting was adjourned until the next meeting date. SPANISH CLASS ADVANCING FAST The beginning Spanish class has showed excellent interest in Span¬ ish class. At the end of the first week, the class was speaking Spanish in class discuMion. at Huntley Redslkins Wallop Genoa HunUey Wallops Genoa 19 to 13 The Huntley Redskin football team ran over Genoa last Fri¬ day night with a score of 19 to 13. Huntley made three touch¬ downs in the first half. The first one was made by Bruce Wel)er who caught a ass and ran 67 yards for tiie touchdown. The ex¬ tra oint was missed. The second touchdown was made by Cliff Mil¬ ler on a five yard line plunge. The extra point was again missed. The third touchdown was again made by Bruce Welier, who ran 72 yards on a pitch out play. Lar¬ ry Kahl went over for the extra point on a pass play, making the score 19 to 0. During the second half Genoa made two touchdowns and Hunt¬ ley did not score again. Coach An¬ derson attributes the victory over Genoa to team unity and the fact that Huntley's team was in Ijetter condition than the Genoa team. Coach Anderson maintains that a game can not be won by an indi¬ vidual layer but must be won by the team pulling as one man or victory. hTis game marks the first conference win for Huntley in its two year football history. Oflcials at tije school and the boys on the team are very grate¬ ful for the fine backing which the town has given them. At the Genoa game, as at other games, there was a surprisingly large crowd of Huntley backers. "This team backing is very important to the team," says Coach Ander¬ son; "both when the team is win¬ ning and when it has a losing streak." Coach Anderson went on to say in an intreview with your reporter that in the future Hunt¬ ley will probably lose some games. He sincerely hopes that the town will not lose its earlier enthusiasm when this happens. Homecoming Pep Rally is to¬ night and the game and dance are tomorrow, Friday. All friends and alumni of Huntley High School are invited to all of the Home¬ coming events from the rally to the dance. the end of the third week, the class put on a skit iMing Spanish.

Miss Linnedahl began her training with the class of September 26th. Approximately 100 students of Agriculture from all over the na¬ tion and parts irf Canada came to Huntley last Friday on their way to Waterloo. Iowa, to the National Dairy Congress. This event is held at Wato-loo every year and as the group* from the various states head to¬ ward the contest they st<9 and practice judging cattle. Hkm students are finalists frcKn thdr own states and schools In Judging dairy cattle and will oompeta at Waterloo for top national team and individual recognition. Most of these contestants are college students but there were some im¬ press ofg high school FFA and 4-H groups. The caravan of cars stepped at the Earle Johnson farm, a Clan- yard Farm, owned by Mr. William McCredie west of town on the Union blacktop. At the farm the cattle were divided Into four ranks or classes ranging from major aged cows to yearlings. Students had to place the cows into four general classifications deciding which were the best on down to which were the worst. Not only did the students have to decided which cattle were the liest but, had they been in a reg¬ ular contest they would have had to explain what they based their classification on. Their reastm would have been counted equally as to their decision had the scores of their judging l>een cahnilated. The stops and tour itself were arranged and planned by Profaa- sor Jerry Cash of the University of Illinois. Months ago, Mr. Cash prearranged dates for each of the traveling team* to stop at cattle farms throughout Northern Illi¬ nois and the area surrounding. Mr. Cash made his selection of stops to include all of the various types of dairy operations. After the stop in Huntley each car load from the various states went its own way making stops on its own and later united with the caravan at another stop which Professor Cash had set up for the entire group. At Waterloo all of the students will judge the same rings of cat¬ tle which will be selected from catle being exhibited at the Na¬ tional Dairy Show. FVom here the team honors and individual hon¬ ors will be selected. One of the highlights of the day at the Johnson farm happened when Jenny, a gold medal cham¬ pion of the main cow family at Clanyard, was shown to the stu¬ dents. Prizes which this 15 year old cow has won were explained by Mr. W. E. P. Goeke of the Nor¬ thern Illinois Breeding Coopw Jen¬ ny is a daughter of Osbarondale and was sired by Ty Vic ac AiH;>le. Ty has sired over 2,200 daughters. Many of the students had cam¬ eras and took pictures of this re¬ markable cow, the N(xthern Illinois Breeding Co¬ op and the teams were on their vray toward Waterloo by 11:30.
