eleven on the field against the Sanford
chargers and the locals got ott to a
good start scoring in tlie first Quarter.
The Whirlwinds kept the ball —hr San
ford’s goal the largest part ^the time
and were never seriously f‘.reatened
by the opposing team. f
The local backfield look* good on
wide end runs and off tfkle plays,
but the line was weaker tl/n expected
on some plays.
Sanford players who Doked good
were Condor, Buchannon and Brown,
in the line and Suggs/Wicker and
Utley in the backfield. Suigs, star full
back of last year's team, was Injured
early in the week and ddn’t get into
the game until the last few minutes
of the play, leading his team for two

hung up their first marker about the
middle of the opening quarter when
Bill Ellas returned Wicker’s kick off
to Greensboro’s 25-yard line. “Bed’
Whitt gained 30 yards on the next
play which was a 'vide end around left
end but was downed behind the Hue
of scrimmage by .Vick and Captai
Brown on the next two plays. The next
try carried them- to the 14-yard line
and Burroughs iiunted over the goal
line. Sanford failed in their try for
gain and Wicker punted to IVhitt on
“'■"SaHfoi'fl’s ■45-yard line.
Burroughs scored first marker
Whitt's pass to Burroughs was c
plete and netted about 15 yards. Elias
tore around end for T1 yards and
made short gains on two other line
plays. Wliitt carried the ball on the
next play and after wading tlirough
a bunch of tacklers carried the bail
around right end for the first touch
down. MTiitt tried for the extra point
Burroughs adds two more points. Ed
Lee received Captain Brown’s punt
from mid-field to start the second half
and returned it to Greensboro’s
yard line, added IS more on an end
run and swept through the line two
more times for 8 and 9 yards each.
Twelve yards was added by Pittman
and then Whitt sailed a pass to Bur
roughs who plunged 18 yards for the
second touchdown.. Extra point
added by Elmer Wrenn.
Pittman received Wicker’s kick-off
on Greensboro’s 25-yard line and “Bed
Egburn, T.«e and Norcum led an ad

line and Burroughs went back on the
next play and shot around end for the
third touchdown. Wrenn again added
the extra point putting Greensboro
ahead 20 to 0.
In this period Norcum, playing his
first season on the varsity, plunged
over the line for a touchdown only to
be called back on a penalty.
Another advance was made by
Greensboro in the final quarter which
carried them to the 8-yard line when
center’s bad snap was fumbled and
covered by Tjee on the 24-yard line.

GIVEN HIGH HONOR
Listed in 1931 Edition American
Football Annual As Best End
in North Carolina.
ALL ROUND STAR AT G.H.S.
Jack Burroughs, captain of
Greensboro high school football team
for this year, was placed on the honor
roll of the 1931 edition of the Football
Annual, and his picture appeared
this issue. Q'he magazine is published
by a New York city concern and con
tains an honor roll and articles of
the best all-round football players in
the United States.
The data for the magazine is gotten
together by sports writers who visit
the five most outstanding newspapers
very state. When the writers asked
the Greensboro Dailij Veics for the two
best players of high football football
North Carolina they were given the
names of “Babe” Daniels of Charlotte
high school and Jack Burroughs from
Burroughs is an all-round athlete,
•inning two letters in football, two in
basketball, and one in baseball. Last
he was the star end of the foot
ball squad and was placed ou the all-
state team, He is popular with all the
members of the football team and was
elected to lead tbe Purple Whirlwind
sqilad in their fight for the state cin-
;ice championship, lie is eoiis'd-
eved one of the best “pass-snaicher's"
liigh school football.
Jack was highly praised in the mt^g-
azine' and the writers said that he was
good a man under a i)ass as seen in
the state of North Carolina.
Kathleen Crowe Starts Season
Kathleen Crowe, selected by Jack
Burroughs, captain of the football
team, presented the ball to him. After
she gave hisn a few words of encour
agement, the game started. At the
half the future football team, known
as the midget team, showed us what
they could do.
The entire squad of boys ou£ for
football have been divided into
three teams: The Varsity, The
Reserves, and the Midgets.
The Varsity is as follows; Nathan
Lipscomb, George Causey, Oka

SPARKS FROM THE GRIDIRON
When the football team goes out of town, there ought to be more
Greensboro fans that go with the team. In the past there has not been
so many fans going with the team. If more people would go with the
team and cheer, it would make the team feel better and would help
them win. Mr. Phillips will let you out of school if you want to go
to the game.
The managers of the past .season’s football team have not been so
good as the one this year. I think the job of manager is the least
thought of thing as there is in the sports of G. H. S. The manager
has to be on the job every afternoon and it is a working job. The
assistant manager ought to go on trips with the varsity for he has to
•ork and there is the need of two managers when they go off. The
teams from most of the conferences carry the assistant manager on the
Coach Lester Belding’s Purple Whirlwind went through one of
tbe toughest scrimmages of the year, the boys had more pep at night
and showed up pretty good.
The only touchdown of the evening was made by “Red” Whitt, an
end of last year shifted to the backfield for the coming season.
When the boys first started this year it looked as if Greensboro
needed a kicker badly, it looks as if they have found one in Captain
Jack Burroughs. Jack is shifted from end to the backfield to do the
kicking. The whole line showed up pretty good.
Probably you noticed that several members of Princeton’s foot
ball team were suspended from the .squad because after a hot day’s
practice they went into a speakeasy to quench their thirst.
Needless to say this condition doesn’t bother the football boys
at G. H. S. After practice .they may quench their thirst with ice cold
water at any of the fountains at G. H. S.
Some people are so dumb they think a football coach ha.s four
wheels. Why everyone should know that a footliall coach has only two
Why are the boys carrying pillows around? Probably it’s be
cause they can’t find any soft spots to sit on in the seats, or else they
played “hookey” during the fair.
Several members of the football squad who are supposed to be in
training attended the fair after the night scrimmage September 23 and
who did they see there ? Why no one but Mr. Phillips.
Have you seen Bill Elias since he shaved?

Gallopin Harry Wicker, end on the football squad, has a job

player, he is a substitute soda jerker at Pomona Drug Co.
Ail of the football boys are smooth shaven now.
Greensboro high school now has quite a variety of sports since
cross country running has been added to the list.
Quite a few students have intimated their desire to get off from
school and go to the Charlotte-Greensboro game at Charlotte. Friday,

who are up and ^heir work could go.
Carolina pulled an upset to the football tans by deieatlH"
Forest 37 to 0. In the hack gaes the scores have been very close and
Wake Forest was slated to win thisone. Johnny Peacock, a boy who
went into his first football game, received the kickoff on the first play
and ran 85 yards for a touchdown. Carolina has a good team under
the direction of Clipper Smith who got his coaching from Knute Roekne.

Coach I.«ster Belding has had his
Purple Whirlwinds down to hard work
following their 20 to 0 victory over
the Sanford eleven in preparation for
the battle with the Reidsville squad
in the Stadium Friday night.
Belding has had the backs working
1 tackling and blocking and has put
the linemen through a stiff workout
at line scrimmage against the system
used by Reidsville. The varsity line
during the scrimmage was composed of
practically the same players that
started against Sanford while the sec
ond string line was made up of Demp
sey and Roiland, tackles; Hunter and
Johnson, guards; and Hester, center.
The backfield looked good in tlie San
ford game and got off some,nice runs
on off tackle and wide end plays, and
Belding has a problem on his hands to
decide between Elias, Lee, Pittman, Og-
buru, and Whitt, who are staging a
close race for tbe half-back positions.
At fullback Norcum and Fields look
good and are having a fight between
Coach Belding says his team looks
pretty good and he was pleased with
the results of last Friday’s game, but
he thinks the team has still to prove
itself against a strong opponent.
The Reidsville game will probably
be a harder test for the locals as they
are considered to have a stronger team
this year and can furnish plenty of
