Special Assembly To Be
Held Tonight At 5:00
C. C. Grid Season Opens Slow
I'hc second seascii in the annals of Colleges Center sports opened its
doors last Wednesday night when "Footsie" and his children ran over
everyone in Bailey Stadium except the officials. The Clinton referees
noticed that Condor was too tough to be put out hy the defending ball
club so out he went on a charge of tackling an opponent too hard. .M-
though this wasn't the official charge, Taylor and Woods could find no
other reason. I hope Coach “liars" gets an edition of the Charlotte New*.
October 17. to read my article "Crime Does Pay” and I would also like j
to say that if at any time he would like to play us on our own home
grounds. I'll speak for the team when I say. “\\ e're ready.” |
Schedule For 1947
Fully aware of the obstacles in his way, Coach "Footsie” Woods hopes
to have a fair sized crowd at the home games which are to be played in
the Memorial Stadium. After the game with Presbyterian’s J. V. team,
comes the Catawba College B string, which is to be played in Salisbury,
N. C., Thursday night, October 23.
The "Owls” play on home ground once again, here they meet the
J. V.’s here in Memorial Stadium, Saturday night November 1. at 8 :()0.
On the road once again. Woods, Taylor and Co. go to Hamlet. N'. C.,
Saturday night, November 8, to play the Hamlet All Stars.
The “Owls” play on home ground once again, here they meet the
the Bee's of Applachin State Teacher's College the following night, No
vember 12, at 8:00 P. M. in Memorial Stadium The last game for the
College Center with the Brooklyn Caysee .All Stars, is to be played
in the Turkey Bowl on November 27, at Columbia, S. C. There is an open
date for then which will probably be a return game on our own stamping
grounds with either Catawba or P. C.
For the information of those who don't already know,
Hillard Knight wrote the last “Owl’s F^ye,” and I would
like to thank him on his fine job. Speaking of Hillard,
there’s a very good sports article of his in this paper that
everyone should read.
Coach Woods is still looking for more turnouts for the scjuad. "Footsie”
has also asked for some field managers. Fred Motley is now field manager,
and yours truly is handling the business end for the Owls.

Presbyterian Junior Varsity squad.
The ‘‘Owls" met the "Blue Stock

Bailey vStadium in Clinton. S. C.
Althougli the J. V.’s were favored,
the first quarter clianged the minds
of both teams and coaches. C. C.
elected to receive, and “(ioat” Davis
took the ball on his eight and drove
back to his own eighteen. On the
first play of the ball game, Davis
went around the left side of his
line for a 82 yard sprint, which was
the longest run of the game. The
extra point was blocked and C. C.
led the game 6-0. However, the Owls
were not victorious for long; for
on the second play after the kickoff
to the Blue Stockings, Flemming
connected with a pass to Left Half
back Glenn Allan who dodged Ad
kins and Davis and rolled over to
tie the score 6-6. The extra point
was wide. The J. V.’s kicked-off
again and Hillard Knight started
the ball rolling for the Owds by re
turning the kick from his own 25
to the 50. Little James Mock who
substituted for Barnett took over
and drove way into Presbyterian
territory only to be stopped by 35

Of greatest importance, will be an
election of some candidates to
special offices. This election requires
a quorum of students so that it
makes it necessary for all oi the
students to attend the meeting.
It has been announced by Jim
Taylor, Assistant Athletic Director
and director of the “special surprise
assembly”, that a program which
all of the students will enjoy has
been arranged for this meeting.
The “special assembly head” has
emphasised the necessity of all the
college students’ attending the
meeting by the election of candi
dates to special offices, the given
away of prizes, and the entertain
ment to be presented.
In order to relieve some oi the
students minds, this paper has
learned through the ‘‘C. C. grape
vine” that a band will probably
render a program of si)ecial music,
that cheerleaders w'lTI be present,
and that a formal introduction of
the football team will be made. The
facts relating to the duties of the
“Master-of-Ceremonies” have not
])een learned. Rumors circulating
say that the program will have all
the aspects of a l)ig “pep-meeting”.
