As reported 36 years ago in the pages of The Columbia News, Sept. 26, 1968:
Coach Bobby Way's unbeaten Evans Black Knights will be after victory No. 3 when they play host to the Thomson Bulldogs on Friday night, Sept. 27, 1968.
Way's Knights have launched an offensive attack which has left them unbeaten and unscored against so far this season.
"We've been very fortunate," Way said. "We've scouted the Thomson team twice and they have a fine team. They're well-coached and have excellent personnel. Ray Guy is a tremendous football player and his kicking is out of this world."
Class a success
All those who signed up for beginning typing at Evans High School are requested to come to an organizational meeting on Tuesday night, Oct. 1, 1968.
The response for the typing class has been so good that it will be necessary to organize two separate class groups.
Teen GOP forms
A crowd of 30 young people met last Saturday night at A.S. "Foots" Quinn's home in Evans and formed a Columbia County Teen Age Republican Club.
Annette Reed was elected chairman and Suzanne Duffie vice-chairman. Judy Simmons was elected secretary. All pledged to work for and elect all Republican candidates.
Speaking to the young people were Quinn, chairman of the 10th District Republican organization; Hugh Pratt, chairman of the Columbia County Republican Party, along with three local Columbia County Commission candidates.
"The Republican Party is for the young people and what we do for them today will affect them in the future," said Perry Dozier, candidate for the Appling seat on the County Commission.
"The Democratic Party is stagnant and does not welcome new ideas."
