the new Groves Stadium with Fur
man's powerful Purple Hurricane.
It will be the first game to be play
ed in the new stadium.
Wake scouts who saw the Hurri
canes in their 40-0 victory over Er
skine last week had plenty to say
about the broken field antics of
Captain Pepper Martin and Soph
Ralph Hamer. These two boys ac
counted for five touchdowns on long
runs of 27 yards or better.
Martin, 145 pound senior from Fair
Forest, S. C-, had never played foot
ball until entering Furman, but a
powerful pair of rabbit-like legs, a
burning desire to play and three
years of hard work have moved him
into the Southern Conference spot

and both were graduates of the
Baptist institution. The llmb
climbers were John Marshall, of
the Raleigh Times and Eddie
Briets, AP columnist.

Martin vs. Gallovieh should be
great battle Saturday.
Other Furman backs who rate
special praise are Ralph Hamer, an
- utiler scat buck; Dewey Proctor, 18b
pound successor to Rotcn Shetley at
fullback; Bob Fitzer, senior half
back, and Jim Braziel, who does a
great amount of the kicking from
the left halfback post.
Cbach Peahead Walker, of Wake
Forest, has warned his boys against
any overconfidence in the coming
Saturday game. The Deacons point
ed to and conquered the Tar Heels,
while the Hurricanes have pointed
to their meeting with the Deacons.
Tar Heels Will Try
To Tame Wildcats
The North Carolina Tar Heels
will take on their second Southern
Conference and Big Five foe in as
many weeks on Saturday afternoon
when they meet Davidson's Wild
cats. According to all views, Coach
Buy Wolf's Tar Heels should might
a fine comback against the Wildcats
end at the hands of Wake Forest.
The squad is expected to be in
good shape, while at Davidson, Coach
Gene McEver is still unable to say
definite whether his star back, Gran
ny Sharpe, will be able to play.
Jim "Sweet" Lalanne, his passing
way below par this season, is expect
ed to get back "in the groove" Satur
day, while Paul Severin, Carolina's
A1-American end, will be in there
to stop Davidson's attack and offer
a fancy display of pass-snagging
Duke Ami Tennessee
Take The Spotlight
In the national football spotlight
this week-end will be the battle be
tween Duke University and Tennes
see at Knoxville, Tenn., Saturday af
Duke is reported to have its best
squad in a number of years and is
gunning for the national champion
ship. With Steve Lach, Frank Kil
lian, Wes McAfee, Siegfriend and
many others to carry the mail, it
is not as impossible as one may think.
But, out at Knoxville complica
tions arise. Coach Bob Neyland's
Volunteers are unusually hard to
beat in their own backyard, not to
say anything about the power of
their attack. Led by Butler and Foxx
they also present a formidable of
fense, and their forward wall is
studded with an Ail-American guard
and any number of stars.
Beyond a doubt, the eyes Of the
nation's football fans will center on
this battle and the winner will have
made a decided jump toward, the
best team in the nation.
