Jim Anthony and Hill ('avan are practicing tor the match.
In its first game in the fight for tlie
AAAstern conference title the Greens-
horo AA‘hirlwinds travels to Burlington
tonight to meet its traditional Ala
mance county conference foe.
Having a record of four wins and
three losses in the games thus far, the
locals will enter the tilt as the favor
ite, although they have failed to live
up to exiiectatioiis in the early games.

‘■hot and cold'’ in their preliminaries ;
and if theA' are “hot” tonight, the
Greensboro eager may meet defeat.
The game will be the second confer
ence battle for Burlington, who opened
the competition at Salislniry last Tues
day night. Coach Hayt Hamhright has
six lettermen as the nucleus of a squad
which uses the fast-break offense.
