By JACK HOLT With two tough losses behind them after dropping a game to Por- tola 13-6 last Saturday, the Green- ville Indians will whoop it up with the Quincy Trojans on the local griddle this Saturday in their most important contest to date. Although the Quincy 11 scored a victory over theh Portola team earlier in the season 'by a margin of two touchdowns, local fans are hoping that Lady Luck, that fickle female, will smile on the Greenville tribe 9or a few plays and overcome , some of the tough breaks that have kept the local 11 from victory in the last two games. In last Saturday's tussle at Por- tola, Greenville was not quite up to preventing the heavier Portola team from shoving over the goal for one tally in the opening quar- ter, but was able to block the con- version. The eastern Plumas etxen scored again in the second period', making the score 13-6. A sensational pass ='from Don Thurman t,o Harold Cooper har- vested 6 points for the lndlans in the third quarter, for the tribe's only score of the day. Cited as the outstanding player of the day was Donald Comstock. charging full- back for the locals. CUB SCOW PACK AIDS L00AL DEPARTMENT. FOR FIRE P00VE o00O00WE?

In approximately four lines *of type was the simple fact that Hans Rinkert got his deer for the season. This was by no means an ordinary deer because it was the FIRST and only deer up to date that was ever shot in Plumas County, or any county for that matter, by Hans. As of yet the story has not been published in any farrous sportsmen's magazine but for further information (at any time) Hans will be glad to open up his shop, show you the horns, and give you a complete and de- tailed report on how he slot this four-pointer and the hunting con- ditions in general in Plumas County. If you have the time, bring your lunch and hear the excit- ing episode on how "The Bear Got Away." CR00ADE FOR FREEDOM (An Editorial) We are well aware that the fight between democracy and totalitar- ianism is much more than a phy- sical tug-of-war: It is a struggle on the one side Io clear men's minds, and on the other hand to confuse them. The Communists realize that their greatest enemy is the truth. It is their invariable aim there- fore to prevent people from get- ting the truth. General Lucius Clay, our former commander of U. S. Ocupied Ger- many, observed h*ow cleverly the Soviet propaganda was handled .nd he realized that a vigorous cru- sade was needed to counteract it. This crusacie which is now taking cn international proportions has been launched here in the western states under the leaderShip of Cal- ifornia banker L. M. Giannini Specifically, the crusade, to be intensified during a six-week per- i,d beginning September 4, will seek both to rally public opinion to more vigorous support of world freedom and to raise funds for ex- tending the campaign. One part of the program wil include the dedi- cation of a "Freedom Bell" in Ber- lin next October. Names of all per- sons who enroll in the crusade are to be sent there as a permanent part of the Freedom Shrine =-.his movement should do much to impress the people of the West- ern world at home and abroad with .he importance of defending their freedom not only on the battlefield if need be, but more importantly, in the minds of men. i BILL MACMILLAN NAMED TO COUNTY CIVIL DEFENSE COUNCIL William Macmillan was selected as chairman of the Plumas Coun- ty Disaster Council at .an organiza- tional meeting held in Quincy Tues- day evening, when some 25 were tn attendance.
