Athletics and Char
The father of a young man who re-
recently enrolled in a school wrote the
president of the institution somewhat
“I hope that my boy becomes a great
scholar. I would be very happy if he
made a fine record in athletics, foren-
sics or in other student life activities.
Above all, however, I hope he will be a
great man. If he is the right kind of
man he will be intellectually honest.
He will not blame others for his mis
takes. He will not waist his time in
envying those who do certain things
better than he can do them. He will
be fair in his dealings with his fellow
men .He will not cheat to gain a tempo
rary advantage over his fellows. He
will be loyal to his school, his country
and himself. If his school training helps
him to become this kind of a man I will
, be satisfied if hs is a great scholar or a
Anyone who ponders the thought
that was in the mind of this father will
realize what a wonderful opportunity
the athletic coach has in helping to de
velop the right kind of men. A bOy
who has had the proper athletic train
ing does not blame others for his mis
takes. He is not envious of his supe
riors to the point of wanting to handi
cap them in some way so that he him
self, even though he be not deserving,
shall attain the prize. He has learned
to compete fairly, respect the rules of
the game, enjoy life, be patriotic and
lastly meet adversity stanbing up'
The father of this boy in question
stated a physical education and ath
letic program objective unknowingly.
While we commonly look upon ath
letics as predominantly physica l,we are
coming to realize as never before that
their great and most ksting values are
spiritual. Greater perfection in the
playing of the game is always to be
sought after, but all of this is the stalk
which noursht's the real flower of the
real process—fine sporstman ship.
Where this is not true, athletic act
ivities bo not justify themselves. They
cannot be neutral in the building of
manhood; they must inevitable contri
bute either good or evil in the making
Naturally it goes without saying that
tvery boy cannot represent his schoo I
in football, baseball, or some other
sport. But all boys can, and should,
have the experience of playing group ^
games under wise leadership. There
is little the sheer act of playing a
game of football that is inherently
valuable. It is the sense of com
radeship—the learning to work to
gether—the give-and-take of win
ning and losing that impress their
lessons most valuably. They are a
symbol of life as a whole. The Duke
of Wellington expressed that the
fundamentals of a man's life date
3ack to the games he played, when
le said, “Waterloo was won on the
playing fields of Eton.'’ The goal
of education is to fit the pupil for
life. Athletics justify themselves
by contributing towards this goal.

Huggins and Orr Went
Over for Tc uchdowns
Led by the brilliant running of Davis
and Orr and the long-distance punting
of Clayton, the Brevard lads opened
the second half by passing and run
ning their way way for a touchdown
in the first five minutes of play. Their
second score came in the middle of the
fourth quarter after a Wofford fumble,
deep in its own territory, had been re
covered by Brevard.
The Terrier Pups threw a scare into
the Brevard ranks early in the first
period when Moore returned a punt
from his own 10-yard line for 25 yards,
and Dannei: advanced the ball to the
38-yard marker by a series of long end
runs and spinner plays. It looked as
if the Pups were on their way for a
touchdown, but tlie Tornados buckled
up and blocked a Wofford kick to pull
themselves out of danger. The second
quarter, which was marked by a kick
ing duel between Calvert of Wofford
and Clayton of Brevard, was almost
entirely played on the Pups’ part of
The Tornados came back in the sec
ond half with a bang to place the ball
again in Wofford territory. A long
pass from Clayton to Frady netted 25
yards and put Brevard on the fresh
man 20-yard line. Davis gained 11
yards off his own right tackle for a
first down, and Orr scored on a lateral
from Higgins around their left end.
Clayton’s oass to Frady for the extra
point was knocked down by Calvert-
After an exchange of punts in the
fourth quarter, Wofford advanced to
Brevard’s 40-yard line, but a long punt
from Clayton to Hix was fumbled and
recovered by Gaston on the Pups’ 21-
yard line. Wofford was penalized for
excessive timeouts, and Davis went
around his riglit end for 19 more yards-
Huggins scored the second touchdown
by going over right tackle for 6 yards.
A short pass from Clayton to Gaston
gave the extra point.

The junior Terriers made their last
stand by flipping several long passes,
only one of which, from Danner to
Baker, was complete. When the con
test ended the ball was on the Wofford
Behind the lenghty and well placed
kicks of Clayton, the eleven played
cool, heads-up ball, and waited for
their breaks, which were quickly con
verted into their only two touchdowns.
Lail, Gaston, and Frady were stalwarts
on defence, while Davis, Orr, and Hug
gins made several sensational runs.
Both teams displayed signs of being
well coached, as there were only two
penalties puring the entire game.
