Whirlwinds Prepare to Fight
Tough Battle With Durham
BULLS HAVE NOT
LOST ANY GAMES;
CLOSE MATCH SEEN
Greensboro high school’s Purple
Whirlwind football squad will meet the
Durham high “Bulls” at Durham Fri
day. Tliis contest, as usual, is ex
pected to be a close one.
The “Winds” and the “Bulls” met
twice last season. Greensboro won the
first encounter by a 9-0 score. The
other, the play-off for the state Class
A Championship, ended in a 6-6 tie.
In this game the locals trailed by a
6-0 count until the last quarter. With
a great effort they then pushed over a
touchdown, but failed to convert.
Greensboro has won the decision over
Burlington, Raleigh, and Salisbury
thus far by rather impressive scores.
On the other hand Durham has yet to
lose one. There is no edge for either
Booking over the Greensboro players
on the night of the game one will
probably see Russell Thompson and
Herman “Killer” Smith who have
played a magnificent defensive game
this season. “Body” Glenn and Melvin
Trull, who have been closely watched
by almost every one this year, will
probably be seen in the tackle slots.
Glenn has been booting the extra points
for Greensboro this year. Guards, co-
captain “Pinky” Reddick, and Charlie
Hood, have been outstanding and are
expected to play a good game. Hartsook
and Withers, who have been alternating
at center, are being counted on to play
havoc with the Durham backs. The
starting backfield will probably be
Ai’olfe, who scored the touchdown
against Raleigh, Johnson, who did
some spectacular punting in the pre
vious game, Calhoun, a steady player,
and Hendrix, a shifty back. Groome,
who has been outstanding all year be
cause of his speed and ability to break
up passes, will probably see much ac
tion if his injured leg permits. Demp
sey, Aydelette, Burtner, and Myrick,
wlio have been showing up w’ell in
broken field and end running, will also
Coach Jamieson has l>een working
hard with the locals and has high
hopes of coming through tliis contest
Reporters on the High Bife staff
were unable to learn much as to the
possibilities of the Durham squad. But
if newspaper predictions are cor
rect, the “Bulls” are expected to pro
duce a hard fighting, heavy, squad.
City-Wide Tennis Tournament Opened for
Students—Faculty Members Also to Play
Greensboro high school’s largest
intra-mural athletic and recrea
tional program was begun Septem
ber 18 when the players registered
for the school-wide tennis tourna
ment. Mr. Thomas and Miss Hutch
inson are acting as faculty advis
ers, while Berry Reid and Clyde
Fields are student leaders in the
event. A total of 52 boys and girls
entered the matches.
As the tournament rolls into its
last half, the results are being fol
lowed very closely by the student
body because of the fact that next
season’s tennis team will be made
up of this year’s tournament par
ticipants. Already three members
.Marvin Hunt, .William Cavan, and
Jack Smith, have entered the quar
ter-finals. The third round is near
ly complete, seeded plaj’ers includ
ing Marvin Hunt, R. Hilliard, Ken
neth Greene, William Cavan, Jacl
Smith, Willis Highfill, Ray Tay
lor, Ernest McBean, Helen Mad
dox, Jean Stephenson, Pat Ford-
ham, and .Jackie Moose. Of this
group Ann Blackburn and .Jackie
Moose have reached the quarter
These matches are expected to
end in the near future, and on the
completion of the singles, the dou
bles will be played.
Teacliers to Have Tournament
With the fact in mind that the
teachers should also play a little,
the Senior high school faculty rec
reation committee is sponsoring a
tennis tournament for all faculty
members of the city. The commit
tee hopes that every school in the
city will he represented. The fol
lowing have entered from G. H. S.:
In the men's singles—Mr. Thom
as, Mr. Richards, Mr. Routh, and
Mr. Hazelman. Women’s singles—
Miss Causey, Miss Taylor, Miss
1j. Smith, and Miss Hutchinson.

Mr. Routh. Women’s doubles—Miss
Hutchinson, Miss JjOuise Smith;
Miss Taylor, Miss Causey. Mixed

Our Boys Really Shine!
Believe it or not, while your reporter
was at Duke university recently, he
saw two former Greensboro high stu
dents who hal been turned into wash
(wo)nien. These two recruits were
L. E. Dempsey, ,Tr., hero of many an
athletic engagement, and Bill Smed-
berg, who pla.ved guard on the local
eleven. Actually the noble duo had
been washing clothes for one of Duke’
football players. Also, they had been
shining his shoes.
You see, L. B. and Bill are freshmen
at the institution and they have to do
what an upperclassman tells them. It
so happened that a scrub board and a
shoe shine kit were placed in their
hands to use, so there was nothing
else for the two doughty heroes to do
but wash and shine!

“The Man They Could
G. H. S.
Because of a certain statement which
appeared in the Daily News not long
ago, this writer has a “bone to pick”
with the person who wrote it. The
statement read: “During a year's time
a high school can be counted upon to
produce a few winners in one sport or
another. Last year, as a whole, was
not as successful for Greensboro high,
as some of those seasons immediately
preceding, but the Puiqile Whirlwind
didn’t fare so poorly at that.” Didn’t
fare so poorly — huh! In this writ
er’s eyes they didn't fare poorly at
all, but did a swell job. The foot
ball team won the honoi- of being
co-state champions with Durham, and
then beat Glass high, of Lynchburg,
champs of Virginia. The wrestlers
were defeated only once, this at the
hands of Thomasville, whom they beat
later in the season, and they then
went on to win the state champion
ship. The track team did its best in
five years by winning two out of three
dual meets. The baseball team didn’t
do as well as it usually does, but it
did come out second place in the west
ern conference race. The basketball
team also finished in this spot. The
golfers and the tennis players showed
up well by winning some important
matches. If that isn’t! a bunch of win
ners, what is?
It seems that Coach Jamieson has
found a couple of good- tackles in “Lit
tle Body” Glenn, 230-pounder, and
“Lightweight” Melvin Trull, 205-pound-
L. E. Dempsey, quarterback and al
ternate captain of last year’s Purple
JVhirhvind football team, went out for
the freshman team at Duke and made
several string backfield. Charlie Hipp,
G. H. S.’s all-state tackle last year,
also went out and was shifted to guard.
Number of Changes Made In
Last Year’s Positions
For This Season.
Following the Durham game, the
Whirlwinds will face another tough op
ponent—High Point. The locals will
more than have their hands full with
Hussey Is a Back.
Big Jack Hussey, who campaigned at
a terminal spot last fall, has been
shifted to the baclcfield by Coach Scott
to bolster the uncertain kicking game
of the Black Bisons. Frank Ausick or
Carl Justice will be used at Hussey’s
old position; Bud Kivett, a returning
regular, will play right end.
Another change puts Purcell Kinsey
at one of the tackle posts in place of
Doc Andrews, who handled this job
most of last season. Kinsey’s deter
mined play and drive ousted the erst
while regular. Clifton Ferguson will
handle the other tackle post.
Billy Simmons, who alternated with
Speas at center and at guard last fall,
has taken a regular job fianking Speas,
wlio will play center. Another Kinsey,
M. C., will handle the other guard as-
Ylie Short, Thurman Homey, and
triple-threat Braptley Ilucks, with Hus
sey, will round out a strong first string
backfield, regarded as one of the
strongest backfield quartets to rep
resent the Bisons in years.
The Whirlwind-Bison game will be
played at Memorial stadium in Greens
boro on Friday, October 12.
where he made first string. Bill Smed-
berg made second string guard, but he
had to drop from the team because of
a back injury.
Mr. Hucks, cross-country coach, ex
pects a fairly good team this season.
Lcttermen who return from last year’s
team are Robert Royal, captain, and
Lawrence (“Lankey”) Weaver. Six new
men are out for the team this year.
They are Joe Munn, Stuart Kuyken
dall, Numa Causey, Richard Dick, Bob
by Lee, and Bob Banks. Banks did the
high hurdle on the track team last
season, but he also got his leg hurt
then while practicing. The first meet
will take place October 13, with Guil
ford college. The locals beat Guilford
last year and are favored to do this
Say, who.se going to win the World
Series? Will the Yankees make it
four in a row or will the Reds win
their first one since 1919?
Coach Jamieson has been strengthen
ing the Whirlwind pass defense in pre
paring for the game with Durham.
The fill in—If you are a middle-
sized youth you are apt to get knocked
around a bit by some bully if you
aren’t careful. The big guy or the small
guy needn’t worry. If you are big, ev-
ybody is afraid to jump on you. If
you are small, people feel so sorry for
you that they won’t bother to do any
pummeling in your neighborhood.
