WHIRLWINDS TACKLE ROANOKERS
AND W. A. BURCH
BACK IN GAME
Tilt Will Be Held at Roanoke;
Kickoff Is Scheduled
for 3 o’clock.
The Purple Whirlwind football
eleven will again risk its undefeated,
unscored-on record for this season
when it travels to Ronake, Virginia,
Saturday, to tackle the Roanoke Ma
gicians. The game will be played in
the afternoon, with the kickoff set
for 3 o’clock.
Although this is a non-conference
game, its importance is none the less
great, as the Roanoke Magicians are
a tough lot and will furnish a final
test of the Whirlwind strength before
they meet their age-old rivals, Char
lotte, here next week.
Both Dickerson and Burtner, who
were out of the game last week be
cause of illness, will be back in the
line-up, adding strength to the Pur
ple and Gold team as it attempts to
ribbonize the Roanokers. The line
wil be boosted by the return of W. A.
Burch to his end post.
From all indications, Roanoke is the
strongest opponent on the Whirlwinds’
schedule this season. Head Coach
Jamieson and Line Coach Day are
both of the opinion that if the purple
squad defeats the Roanokers, it will
stand an excellent chance of cap
turing state titular honors.
Bear, captain of the Roanoke team,
and Minton, heavy tackle, are two
linemen who will be a constant threat
to the Greensboro line. Also, in the
Magicians’ backfield, two boys who
are going to be hard to hold are Lasch
The boys who will probably see
most of the action for Greensboro
are Hendrix and Burch, ends; Smith
and Sawyer, tackles; Captain Ginsberg
and Reddick, guards; George, center;
Dickerson, quarterback; Wolfe and
Dempsey, halfbacks; Trull, fullback.
Hipp will undoiTbtedly do his share
in the tackle position, aiternating with
Sawyer. Crabtree will share the pivot
position with George, and Charlie Cal
houn, who has recovered from a slight
injury received in the Durham game,
may start at fullback.

Locals to Play Charlotte
At Stadium Next Friday
SQUAD IS READY
This Game Always Considered
Greensboro High will engage Char
lotte here next Friday in what is con
sidered the seasonal football classic.
In the past when these two teams have
gotten together to push the pigskin,
and each other, around the gridiron, en
thusiasm always hits a new high in
both schools concerned. On this occa
sion the Whirlwinds will be out to re
venge the 18 to 6 defeat handed them
at Charlotte last year.
Charlotte, again, has a strong team
as is witnessed in the score of three
pi’evious games plaj’ed against Barium
Springs, Richmond, and Rock Hill,
S. C. However, judging from the grid
iron antics of the Purple and Golds so
far, the Charlotte boys shouldn't expect
STARTS HARD SEASON
AValter Miller and Robert Royal are
expected to lead the cross country team
this year, due to their experience and
good work in past semesters.
The boys who began training last
week for this sport, under the direction
of Mr. Herbert Hucks, are 'Walter
Willis Miller, Robert Payne, James
Bowin, Ben Crawford, Robah Neeley,
and Aubrey Apple.
Mr. Hucks stated that a schedule for
the team has not been finished, but he
hopes to have it compieted soon. '
