A rousing pep rally was held Friday, January 16 at Morgan High School for the purpose of arousing the student’s interest for the game. The cheer leaders were dressed as cowboys for part of the yells and for the others they represented “Morgan’s Good Peas.” The rally stimulated the students as shown by their enthusiastic cheering at the game.
Last Friday evening about ten thirty, when en route from Salt Lake City by automobile, J.H. Roberts, manager for the Weber Coal Company of this city had a most harassing experience. At the mouth of Parley’s Canyon two men stepped in front of his car brandishing a revolver and flashlight. With the increasing number of holdups and robberies all over the country it was naturally Mr. Roberts first thought that it was a holdup and he stepped on the gas in an effort to get away. The holdups shot once as the car sped past and then jumped into their close awaiting automobile to give chase. Mr. Roberts soon discovered it was hopeless and dangerous to try and escape by running away from them on the slippery roads so he came to a halt near the Mountain Dell reservoir. Much was his surprise when the supposed bandits turned out to be merely deputy sheriffs who were on the lookout for four of the convicts who had that day escaped from the Salt Lake City Jail.
