Monday, December i8, 1944 THE ORANGE ECHO'' 'V Rage Three Tigers Enjoy a Fine Season By Joe Durham O.C.T.S. Tigers appear to be in high spirit over their 1944 season, although they lost four games. In all, they played seven games, winning one, tieing two, and losing four. The Tigers played their first game with the “Little Blues” of Raleigh, losing by the score of 33-0. The next game was won by the Tigers upon invading Carver High School team, that was coached by the uncle of our coach, “Sticks” Scales. After put ting up a stubborn fight, the Carver Bears were finally over powered by the pile-driving of our backfield, and the excellent blocking of our lines. 0. T. Ed wards, one of our steady backs, galloped 30 yards for a touch down, the first and only one. Matthew Farrington, the first year end, crashed through the opponents' line to trap Carver’s runner behind their own goal line, thus giving us a safety. Outstanders for the game were “Tint” Mason, “Peterwink” Ed wards, “O. T.” Edwards, Joe Durham, Samuel Boyd and Matthew Farrington. After a few days of rest the Tigers tangled with Dudley High School of Greensboro. Going on the field as the underdogs the Tigers soon turned the Panthers upside down. The Tiger's were the masters of the field from the first blast until the last blast of the official’s horn. “Peterwink” Edwards, quarter back, intercepted a pass on the Panther 20-yard line and easily lan our only touchdown, tieing the score, 6-6. It seems as if the Dudley team was stunned to find so much dynamite in such a small pack age as “Boot” Cates, Sam Boyd and Sam Head. John “Glamour Roy” Riggins put in a swell per formance of defensive play, along with versatile Joe Durham. “Lish Burch ette” developed in grand style. Fortunately that most of our backs are snake-skinned and greasy, and our line is a concrete wall, as the Tigers all want to be. The Tigers then had a return engagement with the “Little Blues” of Raleigh and again were defeated by the score of 36-0. We then played the Wil liam Penn Ramblers of High Point, both teams being equally ranked, and the Tigers closed the game with a tieing score of 13-13. The - game with E. E. Smith High School of Fayetteville end ed with the scores trailing be hind of 14-0 in the opponents’ favor. The Tigers later had a return engagement with the Panthers of Dudley High. Both teams were equally matched until the last quarter when the Panthei-s took advantage of their breaks and scoi’ed twice for the score of 12-0. The outstanders for that game were: Samuel Boyd, John Rig gins, 0. T. Edwards and Willis Edwarls. The Tigers e.xperi- cnced a great thrill when Joe Durhan made a remarkable in terception and ran 65 yards be fore bung trailed and brought down irom behind. The last game of the season was played in Winston-Salem against the crafty Atkins High eleven. Here the Tigers were de feated 7-6 in one of the finest games of the season. Due to the lack of e.xperienced officials, the Tigers were unable to defeat the Atkins team. The long lettermen for the year aie all seniors, being as follows: Joe “Co-Captain” Dur- h a ni, .Trtbn Riggins, Alvesta Walker, John Allen, Thomas Mc Duffie and Fred Winston . . . The other great players are: Willis Edwards, back; 0. T. Edwards, back; Johnnie Mason, back; Mat thew Farrington, end; “Lish” Burchette, end; George Webb, end; Walter Winstead, end; Otis Pettiford, end; Nathan Rog ers, tackle; James Cates, tackle; Samuel Head and Albert- Wash ington, both tackles; Samuel Boyd, Jeppie Foushee and Herbert Paylor are “guards.” Ben Woods being that great “short-stop” . . . Joe Durham, center, and co-cap tain for the team, became partly famous by making two 65-yard runs, one in Greensboro, and one in Winston-Salem against Atkins High. Both times he made a re markable interception. Willis Ed wards, co-captain, and still back has been the sparkplug for the team by making four touchdowns this season, plus the remarkable playing of Johnnie Mason, 0. T. Edwards and Matthew Farring ton and the fine line performance of John Riggins and Samuel Boyd. Second Year Foods Class Operates School Cafeteria The second year foodsf class took over, what for a tiine ap peared the impossible—the opera tion of the school cafeteria this year. In the absence of a third year class in home economics, the class that usually operates the cafeteria, our lunchroom looked doubtful. Students began to speak of hot lunches as a thing of the past; mothers became up- .«ei as their small children greet ed them at evening with long faces and tearful eyes. Dissatis faction was on every tongue over the uncertainty of there being a cafeteria this year. However, it so happened that the second year home economics class that had studied foods last year decided, along with our leacher. Miss Pope, that we would do something about it. We would shoulder that cafeteria responsibility. In preparation, we studied cafeteria management, in which unit we learned something on quantity cookery, nutrition at low cost, health requiremeats of our state, business procedure, and public policy. Thus, set up the following policies to gov ern our cafeteria: 1. Cash today; credit tomor row. 2. Deciding on what is wanted before going to the counter. 3. Abstinence from picking over or handling food that is not sold. 4. Keeping the body off the food counter when passing by. 5. Economizing as far as pos sible in the use of our limited equipment. 6. Keeping prices reasonable, and service accordingly. 7. Welcoming favorable com ment, as well as inviting any re port of dissatisfaction. 8. Urging the return of all milk bottles, unstuffed with dis- Fowler’s Food Store All Kinds of Fresh Meats, Groceries and Country Pro duce, Fish and Oysters.
