An estimated 1,600 fans were on hand for the dedication service of the new Evans High football field.
A brief program was held immediately prior to the second game played by the school's new football team. Charles Allen, chairman of the local Board of Trustees, introduced Johnny Gray, president of the Evans Touchdown Club, who served as Master of Ceremonies for the program.
