Steele Stars for the ; Little Tar
Heels Makes TWp of the
BIDDIES EXCEL - IN PASS
One Bill Steele, whose ;post-office
address is Rock Hill, South Carolina,
treated the University of his native
state rather roughly Thursday, when
lie scored two of the ..Yearling touch
downs in their 18 to 12 victory over
ithe South Carolina first year eleven.
The Tar Heels outplayed the visit
ors in everything except forward pass
ing. They made 13 first downs to
.six registered by hte Gamecockerel
Chicks. South Carolina's six first
downs came largely as a result of the
wonderful forward passing arm ex
hibited by halfback Rogers, who made
one forward pass good for 45 yards,
Johnston, on the receiving end, run
ning about 30 yards for a touch-down.
On another occasion he made
j "forward pass good for 50 yards.
Steele played an exceptionally good
game for the winners. One of his
touchdowns came as the result of an
intercepted forward pass, the South
Carolina speed merchant racing a
distance of 40 yards to a touchdown.
Bill, Marks, Hackney, and Clontz, alsc
played well for the Frosh. Marks tore
off some pretty end runs, while Hack
ney got loose for a 50 yard run on
one occasion. Clontz, mammoth cen
ter, intercepted a South Carolina for
ward pass, and played an all around

A training school for officials of
football "games has recently been
started bjr Coah )3ob. These officials
will be of 'the - greatest assistance in
helping( standardize the coaching of
the games played in the state-wide
high school elimination series. There
have been several contested games in
the past because of incompetent offi

hurriedly '- selected "amateur referees
often work an injustice on one of
the teams. '
Sanford Brown,' Norman JShepard,

make up the school. Most of the
championship series games which are
played tn th central part of the state
will be turned over to these men.
Each of them has had some kind of
football experience and knows the
game thoroughly. They have been

In a very humorous manner the

the Gaston County Club should have
a definite purpose in view, and not
be shiftless organization.

With V. M. I. ruling as favorite,

quite so much eagerness.
Notables throughout the Middle

private secretary to President Cool

ernor of Virginia has invited the Gov
ernor of North Carolina to attend
as his guest. The fierce battle last
year has left a pleasant taste with
the Virginians, and tomorrow they
will gather in expectation of anoth
