Greenville's eager linemen out- charged their heavier opponents and paved the way for the first touchdown, scored by Ronnie Lo- gan on an off-tackle slant good for 27 yards. Bert Holt's conversion attempt was blocked, as were the next two. Following the kickoff, the In- dians again took control of the game and scored a line buck by Don Comstock. Good defensive play by Greenville prevented the Tigers from scoring during the first half of the game. The Portola passing game paid off in the third quarter with a T-D and conversion or 7 points. Green- ville came back in the last with a T.D by Comstock following some of the hardest charging seen in the. league this season. "I'm very proud of the way the boys bounced back after losing the Westwood game by a scant one point," Coach Timone said after the game. "Our lind was sharp and our backfield ran hard," he declared. Greenville meets Quincy this ,Saturday on the local grid, in what promises to be the best game of the year, as the two teams are now tied for first place in the league, with one loss apiece.

C00V]LIAN DEFENSE COMMANDFR TELLS OF POSS]BLE ATTACK Commander M. H. Schooler was the guest of the Greenville Rotary Club yesterday noon and gave an enlightening talk on the civilian defense setup in Plumas county and throughout the state, em- phasizing the possibility that in the event of an atomic attack, numerous points along the coast would probably be attacked sim- ultaneously, possibly including the strategic points in this area. Public apathy in the civil de- fense set-up is, he said, typical of the American people, who have in the past shown great disposition to leap into the breach when spurred by such an incident as Pearl Harbor, but who are inclin- ed to do little in the way of pre- parat.;on. o'_ 709 Ldi,iduals, he said, are listed in the Disaster Ccunil'n files, to be called on in the event an emergency should be declared, and under such circum- stances, the state will ,be geared to an all-out defense effort. George Burton was progr chairman and provided elk steas for the consumption of members d visitors. One Rotarian was present from the state of Missouri. Others were Bill Peterson and Al- ton Young of Quincy, and John Bechen. superintendent of the Del- leker mill at Portola.

Cass Kennedy, sec- retary of the California State Chamber of Commerce, remarked that the efforts of the Plumas Co6nty Chamber of Commerce and its representatives, in their pr e- sentation of the need for complet- ion of this grade, assisted mater- ially in getting the budget ap- proved.
