The old jrj-m on the Senior High
campus was really rockin' on Val
entine’s night. It wasn’t a dance—
hut another victory for a team that's
hungry for a state champion.ship.
The hoys from the T\cin City were
stubborn opposition and not until
the closing minutes of the game did
they start to lag behind. However,
the Demons jumped to a lead
early in the first fiuarter on baskets
by Shore and Ooodson. The Whir-
lies fought back with ba.skets by
Campbell and Kincaid, but Winston
refased to give up the lead and they
succeeded in leaving the floor with
a 27-24 lead over the Whirlies at
At the start of the second half
the Demons .1umi)ed to a six-ix)int
lead and it looked like an upset was
in the making, but the Whirlies
came to life in the la.st cpiarter and
came within 41-40 on Bill Camp-
bell’s layup. Captain Lindy Brown
added two foul shots and the Whir
lies were ahead 42-41. Brown hit
again but Goodson added a foul:
then Jack Thomas came thrcugh
with a lay-up to i(?e the game. Camp
bell hit from the foul line as the
game ended with the AVhirlies in
undisputed second place, as Salis
bury dumped Burlington 31-25.
First Choices Named
By Siler and Johnson
The Duke Blue Devils will have
another ex-Whirlie for football prac
tice when the season begins next
fall. I^eon Siler, big, husky 205-
pounder, who did his roaming the
football field from the tackle slot,
plans to enroll at the college already
blessed with numerous Greensboro
football greats. J. M. Self and
Zander Sherrill are also there.
Stanly Johnson, son of our own
“Jabbo,” entered Wake Forest this
spring and will play baseball. I-ast
season he was one of the mainstays
of the ^Tiirlie hurling staff and
contributed many victories at the
expense of opponents.
SHORT SPORTS ■ ■ ■ By chink
BASKETBALL . . . Hot dog. the
Whirlies will be making a trip to
Durham next month , . . High
Point’s Jack Powell has the mumps,
looks like he’s pulling a Dick Dick
ey with the roiirnament coming up
March 9 . . . The Hi-Y squeezed past
the Key Club thi.s past week, 37-34.
Pretty clo.^e game, huh? Hey, we
hear from reliable sources that Jack
Hurd can really hit those shots
from the deep corners of the court
How 'bout it. Jack?
WRESTLING . . . Abbie Keyes
rells us that hi.«: injuries have healed
and he's back our again working
with the other grunt and groan boys.
. Why is Bill Beck afraid of a
figure four? Just ask Coach Baker.
. The last census snowed that
most of the wrestlers have those
pretty red matburns.
FOOTBALL . . . Where did Bob
Murray get “Elbows” for a nick
name? We believe that if Archie
Morris would play football as hard
as he chases girls, he'd be a cinch
for .-Vll-State . . . Greensboro’s loss
was Duke’s gain when Leon Siler
decided to continue being a Devil.
Hey, Leon, someone told us you were
going to nuijor in Latin! . . . The
lioys in the football class know why
Ken Callendar’s nose is crooketl-
ask little Paiiclio from Mexico. It
seems that Pancho was a little anx
ious to block Ken in the Whirlie-
Mexieo City game and accidentally
punched him in the nose.
GOLF ... It won't be long before
the Senior High dubbers are out
tramping the local golf courses. A
gooil year is in store for the Whir-
lie team as many lettermen are re
turning. including Don Smith, Frank
Little. Marvin Perrin. Kemp Clen-
dvnin, and David Bradley.
