SLHS Campus Chatter from November 2, 1928

I wanted to post this early last month so it would appear 82 years after its original issue, but I forgot. There's an article about the Boy Scout Troop plus another about a new harmonica club at school. Much of the newspaper is about the Gators' 2nd football season which was winding down.

They played the Sealy Tigers that coming Friday at Kempner Park. The article says last year's game was called due to a fight on the field. Another article recounts the Gators' record up to that point. They lost to Eagle Lake in the opener at Sugar Land (12-0). The Houston Cubs (described as a junior college team) beat them (12-0). They tied Pasadena (0-0) in Pasadena. They next traveled to Galveston where Kirwin trounced them (46-0). The previous Friday they motored 105 miles to Flatonia for a win (13-12).

Considering the state of roads and highways back then, they did a lot of traveling.
