March 1, 1939 HIGH LIFE Page Three i t- ACCENT ON ATHLETICS By JACK GUNTER FOOTBALL PRACTICE TO BEGIN THIS WEEK Whirlwinds Are Hard Hit By Graduation; Lose Nine Men. REPORTS DISCLOSE that swim ming will probably be reinstated as a minor sport iinder the purple and gold colors this year. With Robert Frew, assistant boys’ secretary at the local Y. M. C. A., for a coach, and the “Y" pool at the team’s disposal, the only possible obstacles in sight are material and student interest. Both of these should be easy to overcome, for with such renowned water buddies as the Hancock brothers, Hobart McKeever, a fancy .spring-board artist as well as a neat swimmer, Bill Goodman, and others-, around which to build the tanic squad, interest and additional mate rial are sure to be immediately forth- ■coming. SOOX THE TURF will be green again, and as the change takes place, the little white balls and cuss words will mingle in the balmy atmosphere of some local golf course. Ed Grosse says that if the school will furnish hand and foot warmers, he is ready to begin now. . . . No foolin', tho', there's a certain element of this student body that really goes in for that game, and as soon as the weather permits, they’ll begin their daily tramps over the “IS,” under the capable tutorship of Mr. Thomas. . . . Another minor sport that isn't far off is tenni.s—.Jay Shepherd, for two years a letternian. is raring to go, and soon the gentle ping of his racket, as well as others, will be a familar sound each afternoon on the ■courts behind the science building. SPRING FOOTBALL began Monday, and although this columnist will not be here next fall, he's pulling for the Whirlwinds just the same. . . . If Coach Jamieson can turn out another eleven, equal to the ’38 edition, coaches and squads in the surrounding areas will have plenty to worry about. ... No wall-tiower athletes from Greensboro. At least it doesn't seem so, the' way they are being rushed by major coaches and colleges all over the South. It's Just a mad scramble to get the signa tures of some of these local lads oir the dotted line of the entrance papers. WRESTLING COACH JENRETTE promised Hobart McKeever. Bill Han cock, and Fred Whiteheart his car for a triple date if they won out in the state meet. Much to the mentor’s de light, the boys came through and coach had to “pay off.” COSTUME DISPLAY TO BE IN LIBRARY An exhibit on costumes from Wo man's college will be displayed in the school library at an early date. Mrs. Braswell urges every student to make an effort. to see the exhibit, because she says, “It encourages really fine art.” WILLS BOOK STORE Books, stationery, office and school supplies, greeting cards. A visit to Wills is always interest ing and you are quite welcome. 111 ij |//>. Weather permitting, the Green.sboro high school's purple Whirlwind grid iron machine will trample the field for Its initial drill of the spring season, early this week. Coach Bob Jamieson, who last season piloted his squad to a co-championship of North Carolina and the unofficial championship of two states, will look over his material, drill them, direct scrimmages, and probably line up a game or two during the four weeks period of spring pigskin tactics. As the squad takes to the stripes next fall, it will be minus the services of nine men, the major portion of last season’s aggregation. Out of the ’Wind’s line will be Ray Sawyer, tackle; W. A. Burch, end; Charlie Ilipp, All-State tackle; Captain Jack Ginsberg, guard; All-State center Rob ert George, and Y'ates Crabtree, center. Trull to Play Line Alelvin Trull, hefty, crashing full back will probably move up to fill some vacancy on the line. Robert Glenn, heaviest man on the ’38 team who has been keeping in shape by daily work outs regardless of the season, vow's he's goijig to give somebody a fit for one of those tackle slots. Jack Ham mond and others will probably see plenty of action on the flanks. Mi.ssing from backfield duties will be L. E. Dempsey, triple-threat quarter- l>ack: Curly Dickerson, halfback; and ‘•Pug’’ Whiteheart, halfback. Nothing definite is known as to who will slip into the empty back posi tions. but Charlie Calhoun, Carlyle flroome, Clyde Cobb, and O.scar Petree are some of the likely candidates. HIGH BASKETBALL TEAM COMPLETES SEASON Greensboro high school’s Purple Whirlwind cagers closed their season last week with an outstanding record of 10 victories and 7 defeats. L. E. Dempsey, high scorer and star forward of the team, Walter Waynick, who has been outstanding at the guard post all season, and Heni-y Mahala will not be with the locals next season be cause of graduation. This will weaken the team considerably, but Coach Jamieson will build next year’s' attack around such promising players as Bray, Hammond. Thompson, Jarvis, Morris, and Campbell. With this material for a foundation, Coach promises to have a good, hardwood club next winter. The locals came in third in the Western Conference standing this year because of defeats suffered at the hands of Charlotte and High Point. The Whirlwinds are hoping for a bet ter rating next season.

Elm St. Phone 9807 Break It Up! Fred Whitehart struggles valiantly to break up the brawl in which Bill Hancock seems to be taking it on the chin from Hobart McKeever. The cause of the fight has not been determined, but it may be that they’re trying to decide who will get the wrestling championship cup. Johnson’s Diamond Squad Opens Campaign Early OUTLOOK IS GOOD Henry Mahala Will Attempt To Fill Mound Position Of Apple. Diamond Direefor, Stanley (“Jab- bo") Johnston, who might be fondly called Greensboro's “Jlaii" of baseball, will don Ills peaked cap and begin scanning the horizon for possible base ball prospects before another edition of this journal rolls off the press. Taking a little pre-season peep at the old “dope" sheet inclines one to look eagerly forward to another banner year of battling and catching the eva sive petite rawbide. Although several men from last year’s state champion nine svere caught in the graduation hoax (■)), new faces and figures throw bright light on the situation. Henry (“Fireball") Mahala will take to the mound and try his hand at de livery. Much depends on the success of Mahala’s campaign, since R. D. Apple was among those bidding G. H. 8. farewell last year. No attempt at or ganization of the squad has yet been made; consequently, other likely can didates are still dark horses.
