FACULTY SKIPS PLAYFULLY
AROUND TWINKLING STARS
IN A MIGHTY STRUGGLE

By Blitlie Blythe—Sport Doper
It was three o’clock Satui day.
The day that was to witness the second
battle of tlie eentury had come, and twice
30,000 voices yelled for “Action” as a like
number of hands reached into 60,000 pock
ets in search of three score thousand tick
ets. As 119,9999 ej'es (one man was blind
in one eye) noted the fact that midafter,
noon liad come, their attention was dis
tracted from Ing-ersoll gazing by a murmur
that had arisen down near the entrance to
the stands'. It grew in volume from no
larger than a man’s hand to the roar of a
caravan of Elm Street subways.
A great epidemic of rubber-necking en
sued, and the hosts of football fandom gaz
ed down from the ephemeral heights of the
great concrete stadium in search of the ob
ject that had caused the excitement. Just
at that moment a soda-jerker, who had
been leveling his opera glasses on some
thing beneath, threw his skull-cap into the
air and with a great shout, exclaimed,
“Eureka! Les voici! Les voici,” which be
ing interpreted from the Yiddish means
“Well, I’ll be chocolate shaked! Look
who’s here!”
tVnd into the great Cone Bowl tripped
the Faculty football team, led by Robbie
(riles, clad in a stunning Meyers creation
of white tulle jersey and blue crepe de
chine rompers. As he skipped along sing
ing “Chase Me; I’m a Butterfly,” the au
dience burst into an uproar of applause,
for they had caught sight of his “ T ” mon
ogram embroidered in blue. After most
diligent search and painstaking investiga-
tion, your humble reporter has ascertained
from a high school mademoiselles who style
themselves “Dad’s Dearest Darlings”, that
the “ T ” stands for ’J I’ea-liound.
Next in order after “Bo” came the
Grand Mogul of Spring Street Academy
for Young Ladies and Industrious Gentle
men, then the prof of “English as she is
spoke,” Ye Prof, of Ye Kindergarten, the
Knight of Ring Around the Rosy and oth
er boisterous sports. Economics, History,
Sanskrit, and the Marcel Wave. With a
twirling lasso and a blood-curdling whoop
Texas blew in in the person of Professor
Longhorn, who, seated astride a big red
steer, offered to wager a new string of
Mexican scalps that he hadn’t missed hav
ing a date every night since his wife died
thirty-three years ago.
A moment later Captain William Og-
burn brought his team up in a donkey cart,
and having sniffed quite prodigally of the
,iar of smelling salts, he called his men into
the fray.
The faculty line-up had at first included
little Harry Rabenhorst, but at the

PURPLE WHIRLWIND DEFEATED
BY WINSTON’S ELEVEN
IN HARD FOUGHT BATTLE
Losing to AVinston-Salem here today by
a score of 23 to 7, Greensboro’s Purple
Whirlw-ind football outfit was eliminated
in the second game of the interscholastic
championship of Nortli Carolina. Win-
■ston-Salem displayed marked improvement
over former contests and outplayed the
Greensboro warriors during tlie entire
game.
The Twin City boys drew first blood,
scoring in the first quarter. They took the
pigskin in the middle of the field and by a
series of cross bucks, netting from three to
20 yards each, rushed the ball over.
Greensboro’s defense stiffened near the
goal but after being held for two downs
McCorkle drove the ball over. Joyce kick
ed goal.
Greensboro’s lone score came in the sec
ond period, following an advance from mid-
field with Daniel' and P. Transou doing
most of the running. The advance was
temporarily halted when Greensboro’s fum
ble on the 20-yard line was recovered by a
Winston-Salem man. A fumble by Win
ston-Salem on the next play, however, gave
the ball back to its former possessors.
Rushes by Daniel and Transou followed
by a cross back by Daniel made the touch
down possible. Daniel kicked goal.
A fumble on the one-yard line in the
third quarter ended another good chance
for the Gate City boys to score and this
unquestionably proved the turning point
of the fight.
AVinston-Salem’s last two touchdowns
and a safety, completing the 23 points,
came in the fourth period. A 2o-yard pass
and a series of line bucks from the center
with Caldwell and McCorkle doing the run
ning netted the first of these touchdowns.
Wilson carried the ball over, wliile Joyce
kicked goal.
A few moments later the Forsyth county
aggregation kicked but Greensboro was
penalized 15 yards, placing the ball on
Greensboro’s 10-yard line. A bad pass
from the center over Daniel’s head counted
for a safety, giving AVinston-Salem two ad
ditional points.
The final score for the Twin City High
School followed a forward jjass which was
intercepted on Greensboro’s 20-yard line.
The victorious team then worked the ball
up to its opponent’s three-yard line. After
two lunges at the Greensboro line, Sapp
scored on an off-tackle play.
Black, a substitute for Greensboro, play
ed well in tlie line, while McCorkle and
Caldwell did the major part of AVinston-
Salem’s work.
The victory puts AA’inston-Salera in the
final game for the western championship
which mu.st be played with the winners of
tlie Ashcville-Shelby match. This game
will be played on neutral territory, possibly
here or in Greensboro.

CHARLOTTE SUCCUMBS TO
FAST GREENSBORO TEAM
IN CHAMPIONSHIP GAME
Greensboro Team Winning 21 to 6; Out
class Queen City Warriors in Every
Period
The Greensboro High School passed the
first mile-post on the road to the state
championship Friday, Nov. 18th, by de
feating the AVarriors from the Charlotte
High School to the score of 21-6 at Inde
pendence Field, Charlotte. The field was
wet and slippery in spots but did not
hamper tile jilayers very much.
I ho score tells the story. Greensboro
outcla.ssed tlie Queen City lads, making
gains at will and holding whenever neees-
saiy. P. Transou, the little commodore,
piloted the team to victory in great fash
ion. The diminutive quarterback kept his
head all the time and knew exactly wliat
play to run and when to run it. In addi
tion to this his line bueking stood out
prominently and he capped the day by
breaking through the line for 65 yards and
the last touchdown. Garland Daniel .shares
honors with Transou. His pile driving
force never failed to give Greensboro the
needed few yards for first downs and
touchdowns. He also ran true to form in
kicking. His goal-kicking really made the
point which beat Cliarlotte. He got also
exceptionally long distances on the kick-offs
never falling short of the twenty-yard line
and one time reaching the opposite goal.
In the line Taylor and J. Transou showed
up well. J. Transou played the entire
game with an injured shoulder, and in spite
of the obvious pain it gave him, he stuck
and made the prettiest playing tackle which
had been seen in a long time.
Clarkson played well for the Charlotte
boys, receiving the forward pass which net
ted Charlotte her only score. Norris and
Wilson made the greatest part of Char
lotte’s gains.
Cliarlotte drew first blood. In the first
quarter the two teams see-sawed up and
down the field and resorted to punting a
great deal, but in the second period Char
lotte opened her bag of tricks. Thirty yds.
on a well-executed fake, 12 yds. on a pass
and a few more rushes brought the Char
lotte boys to Greensboro’s 3-yd line.
Greensboro braced and held for three
downs but Charlotte was not to be denied
and Clarkson carried the ball over a short
pass. Charlotte failed at goal. In the last
part of this period Greensboro tried a place
kick but failed.
In the third period Greensboro opened
up her heavy artillery and by straight line
plunging, making 1st down upon 1st
brought the ball to Charlotte’s 1 yard line.
Daniel carried the ball over on the next
play. He also kicked goal, breaking the
tie.
Greensboro scored twice in the last
period. An intercepted pass and straight
line plunging, making 1st down upon 1st,
