PURPLE WHIRLWIND DEFEATED
BY CHARLOTTE HIGH GRIDMEN
Charlotte Gets Big Lead in First
Watson Are Stars.
On Saturday, October 25, on the local
football field, the Purple Whirlwind
went down in defeat before the fast and
heavy Charlotte High School team by a
score of 24 to 0.
Charlotte made a large score in the
opening quarter when Sam McNinch
booted the leather from the 17-yard line
through the goal posts for a placement.
The Charlotte hacks, led by the rushing
fullback, Foard, carried the ball down
the gridiron for five first downs, and
McNinch kicked after Greensboro’s line
tightened. There was an exchange of
jiunts and a fumble made by Foard.
AVilliams’ ]iass was broken up on the
50-yard line by Schwarz who tore off to
Greensboro’s 19-yard line before the
Whirlwind could check him. By an off-
kick McNinch gained 10 yards and on
the third play rushed the pigskin across
The second period was opened by Wil
liams punting to Charlotte’s 20-yard line.
Suttle returned by kicking to Greens
boro’s 25-yard line. Williams punted out
on the 50-yard line and Devant inter
cepted a ]iass on Charlotte’s first play
and ran to Charlotte’s 30-yard line. Shel
ton then romped off 20 yards around
left end and Charlotte’s line held fast.
Taking the leather over on the 20-yard
line, Queen City hacks, aided by a 25-
yard penalty and by Suttle’s long run
for 30 yards, scored again. An extra
point was added wdien McNinch booted
the ball between the goal posts.
The Purple Whirlwind began to show
good form in the second quarter. Wat
son, playing for locals in position of
backfield, was able on many occasions
to stop the rushes of the Charlotte eleven
by his great defensive work. The first
half ended with the leather in Charlotte’s
possession with 30 yards to go. The
Queen City registered eleven first downs
in the first half.
The visitors who had shown great
strength in the first half were unable to
make gains against the locals, who held
a solid line. Charlotte was not able
to score during the third period and
gained only two first downs. On the first
kick-off the most spectacular run of the
game was registered by Landis, halfback
for Charlotte who caught the ball on the
20-yard line and advanced to the 50-yard
line after dodging and throwing off all
Watson, Shelton and Goodwin starred
for G. H. S., while Foard, Suttle, Mc
Ninch and Schwartz were the high lights

THE GIRLS' ATHLETIC COUNCIL
HOLDS ITS SECOND MEETING
Supervision of Points Discussed—
Riding Heads Appointed
The Girls’ Athletic Council is on the
job! The second meeting of the year
wuas held Thursday, October 23.
The points made by the girls during
the summer W'ere placed before the coun
cil for approval. As some of them had
not been made under supervision, the
question arose as to wdiether credit
should he given. It was finally decided
that all points, wdiether made during
school or vacation, must he made under
a supervisor. Unless this is done, the
points will not count.
Since horseback riding has become a
sport which attracts many of the girls,
it was decided that the president appoint
a head to this sport wdio shall keep ac
count of all points made.
Now' that it has become such an easy
thing to win a “G.N.C,” and that mono
gram seems to have lost much of the
honor which it formerly had, the coun
cil decided that more wmrk would be re
quired before any girl should be enti
tled to one. Hereafter when a girl
w'ears the state monogram it wdll spell
hard wmrk in athletics.
When it comes to playing football
Johnny Ford is everything but a flivver.
Also Lacy Wyrick is the lightning
bug’s pink sw'catshirt in that line.
Saw in the papers that Hickory has
a lock-step on which she dances away
for touchdowns. She won’t dance so easy
when it comes to the state championship.

HIKING CLUB’S FIRST
MEETING HELD OCTOBER 21
The Hiking club held its first meeting
of the year on Tuesday, October 21. The
main object of tlie meeting wuis to elect
ofiiccrs for the club and to decide upon
a suitable day for hiking.
About 50 girls w’ere present and Tues
day was thought by all as the best day
to go hiking. Edith Hargrove wuis then
chosen treasurer and Elizabeth Hodgin
Many good times are being planned
for the Hiking club this year; above all,
the over-night hikes. This is the first
year this has been tried in the High
School. All girls wdio hiked as much as
50 miles last year are eligible for the
first hike. Each additional 25 miles she
hikes permits her to go on another over
night hike. On each of these hikes a
mother, a teacher, and a man w'ill he
taken, so there need be no cause of fear.
It is thought that these over-night hikes
wfill encourage hiking as well as give the
girls much enjoyment.
When it comes to gaining ground Phil
Shelton is quite the stuff; or in other
words, Osw'ald, he escorts his dogs ar
tistically when the oblong sphere is in
his possession. Get me?
One great coach has said to punt when
in doubt; but around this joint it’s just
as good to let that W. Watson tote it.
Charlotte has a good team, but who
knowN if it wdll play at Chapel Hill?
By the looks of the soph team Mr.
Farthing must he the man wdio puts
class into class football.
