\ January 16, 1942 HIGH LIFE Page Fm -h Sportsman's Holiday By EABLE HOLLIDAY AT LEAST ONCE DURING the sea son of each major sport here at Senior high, there appears the necessity of arousing the interest of the stnrtent body in the importance of the athletic teams. Dnring the hrst half of the football season the attendance and spirit of the spectators was far below what it should have been. Although the basket ball season is now in full blast, the attendance so far at the tilts has been extremely low. Not many years ago every home game the high school cagers played was to a packed house. The pi'ice tor those contests was also higher than the present admission rate. You, the students, have voted in favor of the IT) cents admission charge, which, by the way, is much lower than that at most other high schools. Those teams, which aroused so much interest, were by no means better than the (luintet operating now for Coach Jamieson, for in the pre-conference rating the locals were rated with Char lotte and High Point as the teams most likel,v to wind up at the top of the heap. THE STUDENT COUNCIL, as sponsor of the club, is working to improve the attendance. Thus with their sponsor ship, your siTpport and the ability of Jamieson’s team, Green.sboro can and should be the leading basketball city in the state. It’s up to you from here on out. THOSE' CAGE PANS of the school that failed to see Chuck Taylor in his appearance at the local gym last week missed a demonstration of one of the leading cagers in the nation. A de cided improvement in the work of the local team has also been noted since the appearance of Taylor, who took the Whirlwinds separately and helped them in different phases of the game. In addition to showing his audience undreamed of tricks with a ball, Tay lor displayed moving pictures of dif ferent cage teams that showed the game of basketball as it should be played. TPIAT GAJIE THE LOCAI.S drojjped last Friday night to the Roanoke cagers really was a tough one to lose. The Wliirlies showed up excellently in the final minutes of the first half to pull themselves back in the .game, and during the fimil half the locals held the lead for 14 of the Id minutes, onl.v to lose it in the final seconds. The play that resulted in Roanoke’s tying basket could easily have been called back. This step would have given the game to Greensboro. Captain Tom Aydelette was dribbling the ball when he was rushed, and, in the con fusion, he tripped, losing the bitll. It looked as if Roanoke had com mitted a foul, but the official didn't call the play. If he had, the free shot for Aydelette woidd have taken the final seconds and Greensboro would have been victorious 2d to 24. Members of the local Debating club plan to attend a practice forensics tournament in Reidsville in February. Distinctive Portraits at Reasonable Cost ★ Sf. John's Studio Belk’s Dept. Store Roanoke Tops Locals In Extra Period Tilt In a hard fought game last Frid.iy night in the local gym, the Purple Whirlwinds lest to the I'irginia state champions, Jefferson high of Roanoke, by the score of 30 to 28 in an extra period game. -4fter tying the .score in the regular game in the last four seconds of play, two lon.g set shots by Jimmie Akers in the extra period gave the visitors their margin of victory. Locals Rally In First Half Greensboro got off to a slow start in the tilt, and as the half drew near its end, Roanoke led b,v a score of nine to three. Then the AVhirlwinds seemed to get new life and started on a scor ing sp.ree that netted seven points in two minutes to give them a, one point lead at the half-way mark. Throu.ghout the final two piarters, the teams matched each other goal for goal with neither buildin.g a lead at any time. During the first of the final canto Coach Bob Jamieson used re serves to give his first stringers a rest from the fracas. Even these held their own against the Magicians from 4'ir- ginia and protected Greensboro's slim lead well. Score Tied In Last Minute Then with less than a minute to pbiy. Captain Tom Aydelette was drib- b'ing the ball just past the midcouj’t line when Bill Flint charged and caused him to trip and fall. Flint then recovered the ball, went down the court and scored the tying basket. He missed the gift shot th;it could have won the game, a shot which residted from a foul by A1 Koepfle on the play. In the extra period Akers broke the scoring ice with a basket that was m.atched by a crip shot by Paschal to knot the score. Then with four seconds to play. Akers dropped in another long shot for the game-winning points. I’aschal led the scoring with 12 Iicints while Akers trailed close be hind him with five field goals for 10 jioints.

Bradley Druggists Corner of Bishop Block Physical Education Classes To Be Open to All Students Army, Navy To Take Athletes for Defense Many sports fans are asking, “Will athletes be drafted?” The draft officials have definitely said the sportsmen will be inducted into the service if they pass the tests. Athletes have proven that their services are valuable in the line of duty because sports teach clear and fast thinking in emergencies. Each player of a si)ort has learned what to do at the right time, and to co ordinate mind and muscle. This will prove hel|)ful to the nation’s defense. Three of the country’s outstand ing men in the field of sports have entered the services. Hob Feller, speedball artist of the Cleveland Indians, joined the navy; Henry (Hank) Greenberg was drafted, then released because of the age limit, but Greenberg told the offi cials he would like to re-enlist to help his country in time of war. floe Louis, world’s heavyweight box ing champion, fought last Friday for the Navy fund, which profited .$89,000, and went into the Army Tuesday. If his army fighting is anything like his boxing, the Axis powers had better look out for the Brown Bomber.
