The Cadets, winners over little jjndloph-Macon and losers to little Vjrshall, are at their peak, ready to jate a stand that would put Custer ja the shade. Wolf released his usual, laconical pe-game statement as he crawled ato the bus in front of Swain hall yesterday: "Well have a tough fight n onr hands." Well, many a wagering man has giren 21 points to all who would tike VPI- That's risky business, no Bitter how great the football team, m matter how insignificant the op position. Bat it would seem, from indications of the past two Satur days, that Tech will do well to hold tie score down to four or five touch downs. Chuck Kline, veteran end who has ken troubled all year with a bad knee, r3 not start today as Wolf previous ly indicated. In practice Thursday Chuck hurt the same old spot again, cd is now limping around with the other invalids making the trip. George Stirnweiss will probably not play at all, and public prayer for his recov ery in time for the NYU game i3 in order. Sadoff is not completely rid of lis bruises, and "Wolf said Dunkle vould likely start at fullback. All considered, we figure VPI will resist with more success" than either Citadel or Wake Forest. But 27-0 is tee least Carolina will do lor em. While Wolf -is away, the other teaches still don't get to play. They fscard their field uniforms for scout ing regalia, and by bus, car, train, yes, even airplane, go out to observe what tier teams are doing for amusement oa Saturday. Chief Bill Lange, in charge of the Scooting Division, UNC, takes to tie air in order to peek in on the Tulane and Auburn mass murder at S Orleans.

But, he then added "for this early in the season." T xvansons remarks all came about after watching three of his top per formers Tom Crockett, Jim Vawter and Wimpy Lewis run the five-mile route in 27:51, eight seconds faster than their time over the course two weeks ago in the first time trial of the season. l he .boys are doing themselves more harm than good by running so last before thev srp ra?-ir -fv- J " 0 ' A V, explained Ranson. uveriooking the instructions of Ranson to run about a 30 minute race, xom Crockett, Clarence Fink, Jim Vawter, Wimpy Lewis, and Dave Morrison covered the first mile in 5:05 and were runnipg at a 10:24 clip at the second mile. Crockett, Vawter and Lewis were blowing hard when they finished, showing that the pace had been too fast for them. Morrison tied up for the second con secutive week with a stitch. Clarence Fink continued to show improvement over his surprising per formance of last week when he cov ered the route in 29:52. His time yesterday was a more surprising 28:48, nearly one minute better than last week. Henry Branch, running a good pace the entire run, finished the first mile in 5:20, was running 10:55 at the two mile post, and finished in 30:59, three minutes and 22 seconds better than last week. Jim Toy and Holt Allen also offered good performances. They covered the course in 31:48 as compared to their times of 32:33 and 36:30 of last week. They were hitting a 11:23 pace at the second mile post, and finished strong. Jim' Earle, who tied up wit!Tabad stitch on the last mile and half, failed to better his last week's time of 32:33, running 33:40. Bill Gordn bettered his time by 17 seconds running 34:20. Dave Morrison, who continues to turn in dependable marks, ran 28:48, bet tering his best time of the year by two seconds.

Gene "Junior" Thompson, star rookie hurler, is slated to go the mound for the Reds, while the Yankees' starting pitcher has not yet been named. . While the teams rested while trav- lintr west today, no one was sure in cluding Manager Joe McCarthy who would 'start for the Yanks. Vernon "Goofy" Gomez, who has wn six World Series games and lost none, and Oral Hildebrand are the -most likely choices, while Bump Hadley was another possibility.

They will be selected by Richard Morris, mural editor. Intramural leagues wound up their second week of activity with Zeta Psi, Sigma Chi, and Chi Psi holding the top- position in the fraternity loop and Everett, H, Mangum and BVP leading in the dormitory division. Zeta Psi, last year's fraternity touch champions, revealed their strength for the first time this season during the week as it took its second game by a 39-0 score. Chi Psi, how ever, remained the favorite in the fraternity league by gaining a 53-0 victory. Sigma Chi dropped to third choice for fraternity champs as it eked out a 2-0 victory. Everett stole the limelight in the dormitory league as it took its second straight game with a 14-12 victory over Grimes, last year's campus touch football title holders. Mangum con tinued to exhibit lots of offensive power as it overwhelmed its opponents for the second consecutive week. "H," one of the newest additions to the dormitory list, took new life in the race for leadership by defeating Old West, the favorite in , the dormitory league, by a 6-0 score. BVP's stock in the race dropped as it was pushed to beat Old East by a 12-0 score. Some of the stars of these top rank ing teams for the week were Dilworth and Harden, Chi Psi; Council and Scales, Sigma Chi; Carr and Nash, Zeta Psi. In the dormitory set-up the stars for Everett were Pryor, ShytJe, Miles, Rich and Prowitt; for Man gum Nesbit and Hardy; for BVP, Fuller; and for "H," r Pearson and Ferris. Frosh Need Work On Fundamentals Blocking poorly, muffing passes and missing tackles, Carolina's frosh foot ballers yesterday showed they didn't know the team plays and couldn't get organized until they practiced a great deal more. Backs and ends went through spe cial blocking and tackhng sessions before their dummy scrimmage and showed the coaches that they knew little about the correct approaches to these skills.

BEERHAN Southern conference teams play in five different states this afternoon as ;he battle for the inside track in the eague race begins its third week. Among the best in football enter tainment for the day are Clemson- State, Davidson-VMI, Duke-Colgate, Furman-Georgia, Maryland-Western Maryland, Richmond-Washington and Lee, South Carolina-Villanova, and William and Mary-Apprentice school. Carolina, playing Virginia Tech at Norfolk, appears to have a definite edge to win. VPI has neither the team, power, or heavenly eift which can urge it to a victory over Wolf's squad the game should go to Carolina by a four touchdown margin. K Davidson's rugged little Wildcats, the only team to score a touchdown against Duke since 1937, meet VMI at Bluefield, W. Va., and many think the Cadets are in for a licking, Granny Sharpe and his passes can set VMI back a surprise to only those who haven't seen Davidson in action this year. State can give Clemson a fine fight at Charlotte, but the Tigers have enough offense to score and win. Tu lane was lucky last week in its 7-6 victory over Clemson; likewise, the Wolfpack was magnificent in holding Tennessee to two touchdowns. Indi cations are for a tight game. Duke, heir apparent to the confer ence crown it now wears until Caro lina's' adding-machine inarch in the last two weeks, is host at Durham to Colgate, mighty nothings from the north. The Blue Devils announce each year that "Colgate is a menace and then go on to beat the Red Raid- ers witnout mucn trouDie. jn x u squeezed blood from a turnip in get ting a 7-6 win over Colgate last Sat urday, and the experts hint that Duke might be surprised today. But then, experts are always hinting, so we see Duke the winner as usual a couple of touchdowns, whatever Wallace Wade wants. Furman was mentioned by the Sun day papers after Army nearly had a stroke in putting the South Carolina (Continued on page 4, column 6) DUKE FAVORITE Fencing Mentors Happy: Big Squads, 1938 Team Intact Even the most optimistic expecta tions of both Business Manager Jerry Stoff and Coach Allan Bloom have been exceeded by the fencing turnout this fall. Yesterday's total reached 72, an all-time high. But that's not the only good news in the fencing camp these days. Top ping off the quantity of fencers is the quality of, both the .swordsmen, and swordswomen. The varsity squad is back jusabout intact, including both old and new ex perienced reserves.. The entire,. foils team ha$ turned out. . Captain Allan Bloom, Joe Boak and Dave Malone, the three who led the '38 team in many of its meets make up probably the most depend; ble-foils three in the South. The re urn to school of Bernie Ales kovsky) 1937 leader, bolsters the epee team into the top rank; with John FinchJ number one Eastern intercol legiate epeeist last year and' Dick FreuHenheim, lead-off epee man, 4 forming what may develop into an un beatable epee outfit. Sabre, weaker than last year, has Bloom and Bob HVington, a promising junior, lack- ayne Williamson, number one in 1938, the only varsity man ( : i. i..-r,ii ia the reserve yuau as iiupcxt 3- situation. Hermann Boemans, Ralph Felton, and Clayton Farris lead the half-dozen foil subs; Stan Whyte, Bill Spicer and Henry Smernoff can ably take up epee at the beckoned call; and Ernest Stich, Lome Payne, Bob Tolmach, and Fred Broad pace the sabre extras. Other reserves in all weapons include Don Foscue, John McLelland, Ernest Morris, Bob Sears, Kent Stratofrd, Bill Harward, Tom Vance, Stew Wilson, Clarence Howell, and Stoff. Without a call for frosh, 12 first year men have reported -for fencing practice. A team will definitely be formed this winter from physical edu cation classes, and an extensive inter collegiate schedule engaged in.. News of experienced freshman fencers greatly increases the possibilities of the first organized freshman fencing team being an unusually good one. - . The more experienced frosh swords men are Bob Deering, Episcopal Acad emy and New York Military Academy fencer; Howard Imbrey who competed at Horace Mann school in New York; Irvin Ebel, a Brooklyn high school foilsmaij; Dick Adler, foil fencer; Warren Steel, YMCA foil instructor . (Continued on page 4, column 4) DURHAM, Oct. 6. The orthodoxy that is Duke and the wizardy that is Colgate will collide here in Duke sta dium tomorrow afternoon when the Blue Devils of Wallace Wade and the Red Raiders of Andy Kerr meet for the fourth time in a feature inter sectional match. The kick-off will be at 2:30 o'clock. For three years, Wallace Wade has sent his conservative, power-play type of attack against the deceptive football magic employed by Andy Kerr. And for three years, the Wade system has won out.. In 1936, when the series was inau guarted at Duke stadium, Duke finish ed ahead, 6-0. At Hamilton in 1937, the Blue Devils triumphed, 13-0. Last year at Buffalo at the christening of the Iron Dukes the Wademen won, 7-0. Kerr has always developed a slam- bang passing attack to go along with his tricky laterals and reverses. It was tnis same slam-bang overhead attack, led by talented Hal Lube, that very nearly turned the tide for Col gate in the final quarter of last year's contest. - It's practically decided, however,! that the Red Raiders of the Chenango ; valley will not wait again until the ! final quarter tomorrow before they cut loose with their aerial game. Hal Lube will start, and hell be in there pitching right from the start. (Continued from first page) outs every afternoon in an effort to get his leg back to something reason ably resembling normal efficiency and appearance. , George will be on the bench await ing any call that may come, but with Carolina moving along on its present path and Virginia Tech apparently started the other way, he will prob ably have a long afternoon of bench warming. Jim Lalanne will be the starting quarterback and George Rad- man, who will begin the game at wingback, will move to quarter when Lalanne takes time off as long as Carolina maintains a respectable ad vantage over the Gobblers. PROBABLE LINEUP Wolf will probably use the same lineup with the exception of Stirn weiss that started against Wake For est: Severin and Mallory at ends; White and Kimball, tackles; Woodson and Abernethy guards; Smith, center; and Radman, Sadoff and Bobbitt in the backfield along with Lalanne. There is no disposition among the Tar Heels or their coaches to take the game lightly, but Carolina simply has too much power, and if required, too much finesse for the Gobblers to cope with. Virginia Tech had hard luck last week-end in losing to Marshall, and they are looking forward for some measure of revenge against Carolina. Reports out of Blacksburg indicate that the Tech aerial game should be more potent this time out now that vet end John Henderson is in condi tion to play for the first time this sea son. Rankin Hudson, triple threat man about the Gobbler backfield, is an able pass tosser, perhaps not as good as either Stirnweiss or Lalanne but a fair performer nevertheless. FULL STRENGTH The Gobblers will also be at fmH strength for the first . time this year. Billy James, a sophomore withfpromise of future brilliance, will be ready tc go in the backfield and the line will be boosted by the return of tackle Andy Todd and guards Van Anderson and Joe Smith. Ellison, Hudson, Warriner and De- Muro give Virginia Tech - a strong backfield. The line is heavy, the light est regular weighing in at 180 pounds. Last year the Gobblers came dawn to Kenan stadium, caught Carolina in the rain and suffering from the let down after" the Duke game, and held the Tar Heels to one touchdown, los ing, 7-0.
