Coach Max Campbell used two sets ,of backfield for the Indians in an ef fort to discover a scoring combina tion, neither of which seemingly de veloped the spark needed to rack up ouchdowns. The play on the part of the Indians' line showed some im provement over the opening game, and additional improvement is ex pected in both the line and backfield for the game this week when Edenton comes to Hertford to renew grid riv alry with the Indians. 1 The game with Edenton was moved 'up to Thursday night and played on Memorial Field. Perquimans and Edenton are about evenly matched, judging from the contests each school had with Columbia. The Wildcats downed Perquimans 6-0 and then on last Friday defeated Edenton by a 12-6 score. Edenton boasts a big line and a smooth working backfield. The Aces held Greenville to a 13-i s'ore. When the Indians and Aces played it was the -1st game between the two schools, with Perquimans win ding 11 victories to Edenton 's 7 and ,three games ending in a tie. An in teresting sidelight on the series is that during the first eight games played Edenton won only one, then during the next eight games Per quimans won only one. In the last seven games Edenton has won only one and the Indians will be playing I to ke.-p the eight game jinx on by troutu in" the Aces again.
