On a sloppy field in a drizzling rain
Saturday afternoon, September 27, the
Purple Whirlwind went down in defeat
before the Salisbury fast eleven, 13 to 6.
As the game was called, the Purple
Whirlwinds’ sponsor. Miss Betty Harri
son, presented the ball to Captain Bur
roughs amid the cheers of the sidelines.
In the first three quarters Greensboro
seemed destined to be the victors, but
Salisbury brought up her score in the
last quarter. With only five minutes to
play, with the ball in their possession,
the Salisbury eleven punted to Greens
boro’s five-yard line. On the first play
Goodwin attempted to punt to safety
but the ball was blocked, rolling over
the goal line where Shuler, a Salisbury
player, fell on it for a touchdown. An
extra point was added with a beautiful
drop kick bj^ Reeves.
Salisbury then kicked off to Greens
boro, and the ball rolled far into Greens
boro’s territory. Greensboro punted out
of danger, and Salisbury received on the
25-yard line, running the ball back 10
yards where the Purple Whirlwdnd pre
vented further advances. Greensboro
blocked Reeves’ second drop kick, only
to be recovered by Shuler who dashed
across the goal line for another touch
down. Reeves failed to add the extra
point that time.
I^or the Purple Whirlwind, Captain
Burroughs, Goodwin and Shelton stood
out prominently, while the entire line
was effective on the defense. Shuler,
Reeves, Floyd and Ryan showed up to
advantage for the visitors, the former
two scoring all of Salisbury’s points.
Coach Johnson was not inclined to be
come disheartened over the showing of
his charges, for the opening game was
a chance affair, and the Greensboro team
showed wonderful defensive skill.
The line-up was as follows:
Greensboro Salishu ry
Burroughs (C) Ryan
Koenig F. Floyd
Davant Wolf (C)
Watson T. Floyd
Summary: Touchdowns — Burroughs,
Shuler 2. Points after touchdown—
Reeves 1. First downs—Greensboro 1.
Substitutions—Coletrane for T. Floyd,
Goodman for Leonard, Moorefield for
Coletrane. Referee, McAlister; umpire,
Richardson; headlinesman, Phillips.
G. H. S. is very proud of our new
captain, Fred Burroughs, and his squad.
Captain Burroughs scored the Purple
Whirlwind’s first touchdown of the sea
The Greensboro team gave the visitors
a hard fight and G. H. S. is sure the
Purple and Gold will be victorious next
time. From the spirit exhibited on the
sidelines the Purple Whirlwind may feel
sure that G. H. S. is backing them and
expects many victories.
To write about a fellow like Fred Bur
roughs without bordering on the ex
treme is not an easy task—especially at
present. For Fred is captain of the
G. H. S. Purple Whirlwind. He plays
end, and jilays it in such a fashion as
to make every student of Greensboro Hi
proud that such a man should represent
them. Showing in every act, on the
field and off, his sportsmanship and gen
tlemanly qualities, he has won the ad
miration and respect not only of his
team mates but of the entire student
body. Alvmys unassuming, making no
bid for glory by grandstand play, he has
played a steady consistent game for
Not only on the gridiron, but on both
the baseball diamond and the basketball
floor he has distinguished himself. In
baseball he “shines” at third base, and
on the basketball floor his unfailing eye
for the basket has won him a place at
forward. Fred takes great delight in
tearing down the theory that athletes
are dumb-bells in everything but ath
letics. For in addition to being the pres
ident of the Hi-Y and an active mem
ber of other school organizations, he is
an excellent student.
We’re proud of you, Fred, and are
glad that you were chosen to carry our
CENTRAL HI STUDENTS
STAGE “PEP” MEETING
Elect Cheer Leaders and Organize to
Support the Teams.
The whole school came together last
Wednesday in mass meeting. After a
rousing cheer by the senior cheer lead
ers, Mr. Edwards introduced Bob Stone,
new treasurer of the Athletic Associ
ation, after which he turned the meet
ing over to Mr. Johnson and six of the
last year’s football team,—Captain Bur
roughs, Franklin Goodwin, Billy Koe
nig, Vernell Llackney, Mead Connelly
and John Ford. All the boys made
short talks urging sideline support for
the team. Coach Johnson then talked
for a few minutes on the same theme,
then introduced to the student body the
manager, Norman Stone, and Charles
Amole and Marvin Isely, his assistants.
It was decided that four cheer leaders
he elected. In the election that followed
Virginia McClamrock and Alec Menden
hall were chosen from the senior class,
and Margaret Harrison and Elizabeth
L^mberger from the junior class. These
officers, immediately assumed their re
sponsibilities by leading the group in

STATE-WIDE GIRLS’ ATHLETIC
ASSOCIATION HELD HERE
The State is Divided into Ten Dis
tricts Instead of Five as
A meeting of the Athletic Association
of North Carolina high school girls was
held in the High School, Saturday, Sep
tember 27, at 9 a. m. At this time
President G. B. Phillips called the vari
ous chairmen together for the purpose
of discussing athletic plans for the girls
in the high school.
The state has formerly been divided
into five districts for the purpose of
promoting athletic activities, but the or
ganization has made such wonderful
strides that the association in its meet
ing Saturday decided to re-district the
state. Instead of five districts as for
merly, the state is now divided into ten
districts with an efficient chairman of
each group, the districts and chairmen
to be announced later.
Those participating in group discus
sions were Miss Bonnie Shelton, David
son; Miss Olive Smith, Winston-Salem;
Miss Ruth Coble, Roanoke Rapids; Mrs.
Dunman, Salisbury; Miss Minnie At
kinson, Chapel Hill, and Misses Nellie
K. Dry and Lillie Walker, of this city.
Miss Walker was made official organizer
of the association and she will be free
to go over the state where needed in
Another basketball series will be con
ducted this spring by each district chair
man, that series to be over by March 1st
so as not to interfere with the spring
plans of the association. The organiza
tion discourages long trips for girls in
any sport, but it believes that by being
well organized into smaller groups more
schools will be brought into the associ
ation, and furthermore it will give some
phase of athletic activity to a larger
group of girls.
Already great strides have been made
by the association in its three years of
pioneer work, and greater plans and
larger ones are being prepared for the
future. The association feels that they
have at last found what is needed for
standardizing athletic activities for girls
in the North Carolina high schools. In
all its work the association seeks to de
velop a spirit of high sportsmanship in
both girls and leaders.
Any standard high school of North
Carolina may become a member of the
association by adopting the constitution
and paying the membership dues, which
are $5 per year.
The officers of the association for the
coming year are: President, G. B. Phil
lips, Salisbury; vice-president, C. W.
Davis, Wilson; secretary and treasurer.
