Conway High School’s football team defeated Carlisle 21-0 at their Hi-Day game. Led by Tom Mabry and George Gragson, the Cats ripped through the Carlisle team for two touchdowns in the second quarter and another in the third quarter. Mabry thrilled the big crowd with a 55-yard dash for a touchdown in the third quarter. The entire Conway line played a good brand of football.

The Conway High School physics class, taught by Mrs. Charles Steed, went on a short trip to the railroad to watch the welding process. It was explained by one of the workers and proved to be a very interesting trip.
