Mustangs win first district grid game

The Malta Mustangs won their first district game of the season by defeating the Chinook Sugarbeeters 39-0 in a game which Malta dominated through the four quarters.

The Friday game itself uncovered four or five prospects including Roy Edwards, freshman, and John Sudseth, senior, who shows possibilities. In the line, two new men may be pretty tough. They are Ray (Buck) Hack and Albert DeKoning. Bobby Harwood did a good job in his first assignment as quarterback and Dwayne Meyer is coming along as a hard-hitting fullback.

Halloween activities talked over by City Council, BB Gun request

Ken Ulrich and Wayne Paulson of the Malta High School Student Council appeared at the Malta City Council Meeting and told the Council of plans which the students had to furnish entertainment at the school for Halloween night. A carnival and dance for youngsters is planned this year, much the same as last year. Last year's program was very successful, and no vandalism was reported in the city. Mayor Goodheart will speak to the student body and ask their cooperation on Halloween.

Chief of Police Ralph Young proposed at the meeting that the City gun ordinance be amended to make it mandatory for kids to keep BB guns in cases while in the City limits. Much damage to windows is reported to police, he said, and a lot of it is due to stray BB's.

Mother-Daughter bag unique trophy

A mother-daughter hunting team bagged a pair of antelope which could be a bit difficult to mount on a wall.

Two women visiting Phillips County and hunting on land owned by Bill French came about what they thought were two antelope grazing closely together, but what surprised them is that the animals didn't run away. Getting a closer look, one of the women discovered that the two animals were locked tightly together with their interlocked horns.

The two women each shot one of the animals and just how long the two antelope had been inter-locked is anybody's guess.

Grant moves old church closer to new home

The old church which now stands at the brow of the hill at Sleeping Buffalo Resort is $750 closer to its new home in Saco thanks to a grant from the Phillips County Community Foundation.

The grant was awarded to Prairie Economic Development, but the Saco Garden Club is behind the effort. The club raised money in the past to pour a new foundation for the church at a location next door to the historic Chet Huntley restored school. Both the church and the school were originally located about 20 miles north of Malta.
