Purple Whirlwind Downs
Salisbury to Tune of 18-7
Greensboro’s Opponent Scores
Only When Subs Sent in.
GOOD GAME IS PLAYED BY ALL
Many Greensboro Fans Witness Vic
tory—Cheer Leaders Direct Very
Friday afternoon at Colonial Park,
Salisbury, N. C., the Purple Whirlwind
developed into a regular cyclone and de
feated the fast Salisbury eleven to the
tune of 18 to 7.
The first part of the first quarter the
two teams seemed to be very evenly
matched and the main features consisted
of a series of punts by both elevens.
Near the end of the first quarter Greens
boro received the ball on the 45-yard
line and from that point, by a series of
line bucks and end runs, carried the ball
to the goal. Captain Watson carried
the ball for the first touchdown. Try
for goal failed and after the second kick
off Greensboro received the ball on the
65-yard line and the whistle blew for
the first quarter with the score of 6-0 in
favor of Greensboro.
The rest of the game Greensboro con
tinued to drive through Salisbury’s line
and the local team was successful in
two more touchdowns, these being scored
by Smith and Shelton.
Coach Fordham sent the entire second
squad in to play the third quarter and
it was not until then that Salisbury
scored. Salisbury also kicked the goal
that made the final score 18-7 in favor of
Greensboro played a much better game
than they did when they met and de
feated Leaksville. The team did a great
deal of fumbling, but at no time in the
game did this cost them much, as they
seemed to be well up on the art of re
covering the ball. The majority of the
penalties were for off’ sides.

first annual Cross Country Run for
Greensboro Fligh School Boys. It is
class competition, a minimum of seven
boys to represent each class. The
course will be over hill and dale, thru
fences, in fact a typical cross country
race. Flags will be placed to mark the
course and judges stationed to see that
runners follow the marked trail. There
will be a silver loving cup awarded as
team trophy. The team to put first
five runners across the finish line will
win the trophy. The first five runners
to finish will each receive a prize.
This is organized by the Department of
Recreation and Sports. Captain of
each class team will register his team
with Coach Aycock by Wednesday Oc
Heres a chance for every boy in G. H.
S. to represent his class and school in
an athletic event.
An individual cross country run is
scheduled for Thanksgiving. Get on
your job and train.
Coach C. C. Fordham secured passes
for the members of the Greensboro High
School football squad to the Wake For-
est-Carolina game at Chapel ITill Sat
urday, September 26.
Some twenty-five or thirty members
of the squad attended the game and
used the passes. The local players ex-
preses their gratitude to Coach Ford
ham for the privilege of seeing the game
A group of boys, about 21 in number,
can be seen any afternoon in the Cald
well gymnasium seriously and strenuous
ly at work on the fundamentals of bas
ketball. This- group is working with
this aim in view—to give G. H. S. a
fast and furious basketbball team this
winter—one that the school will be proud
of. They are working under the di
rection of Coaches Park and Johnson.
There is plenty of room for others. Now
is the time to get the fundamentals and
get in good physical condition for a
full schedule of games.
Who said McManus had anything on
Ed. Turner? He’ll be all right when
he gets to be as good as Ed.
At the opening game with Leaksville,
Friday, September 25, the student body
was greatly disappointetd in not seeing
the sponsor present the new ball to the
players. The sponsor is Thelma Meyers.
Since Captain Watson objected to cere
mony the ball was taken out on the
field by the referee.
Besides being honorary, this position
carries with it a few duties. The chief
duty is to give inspiration to the players.
Due to the fact that Mr. Atkinson
left the ranks of the faculty to become
a law student at Harvard University
Mr. Stanley Johnson will assist Coach
Parks with the basketball squad. Mr.
Johnson comes to G. H. S. from Wake
INSIDE DOPE ON THE
Raw Recruits Fill Places Left in the
Line-up by Graduations and
Swift—Though Dave is not so large as
his brother Bus, he has the same quali
ties as a player and when he starts down
the field it is some job to stop him.
Teague—Bill is green material for high
school football, but has had experience
on other teams and as he has the pep
that makes a real football man he is
coming out into a fine shape.
Petree—Bill is another man who is
green at high school football. He should
be a very valuable man, however, if his
knee will stop giving him trouble.
Burgess—Chuck was barred from the
team last fall because he had not been
enrolled in school long enough, but this
year he is out with bells on and is walk
ing away with the team.
Arnold—dies, ran away with tennis;
watch his football.
Wimbish—Bunny was a member of
last year’s squad and this year is mak
ing a good showing at end, but he is
having a little trouble with his ankle.
Brown—Theron is another green man
but has made a good showing at guard
and when he starts to tear up a line,
Taylor—Wyatte is making a good
showing at tackle this year and great
things are expected of him.
Henderson—Ray is a brother to Curly
and is going out for end. Lie is a good
player who has had experience on the
freshman team and the varsity squad of
Gump—Harry is that big bushy haired
fellow who is out for center.
Grubbs—Bryan is the man who is out
for end who has been hanging on to
Cox—Gene deserted high school and
went to Bingham last year, but is now
back with us. From the way things
look he must have learned something
about football while he was there.
Shoffener—Charlie is having his first
trial at the varsity but plays like an
Hobbs—Bill is a new find but he’s a
real find and from the way things look
it will not be necessary to look any far
ther for a tackle.
Forsyth—Jim is a brother of Vars. and
Stuart and plays the game like his
brothers who have gone before him. He
is light and small but sticks ike a vete
Gardner—Herman is a man who will
make a real center and from the way
he has been playing it looks as if the
varsity is going to be in luck in having
a man who can pass the ball in such a
Faulkner—Joe is a man whom the
team simply would not be able to do
without. He is out for practice every
day and is willing to work.
Lipscombe—Ned bids fair to become
a chip off of the old block (his Pa play
ed) and he is taking the place of Good
win at center.
Cook—Ralph has had the experience of
running a team at junior high school
and is developing into a valuable center.
Stockard—^Wade is light in weight and
has not had much experience but seems
to have the ability to hold down tackle.
Glascock—Tommy is not so large but
he has shown that he has the main qual
ity of football and that is nerve.
Glascock—Luke has proven that he
will be a very valuable addition to the
team. This is his first year out for var
sity but he did fine work with the junior
team last fall.
Homey Bros.—both of these boys are
fast and are able to follow up the ball.
It seems that they will make a couple
of clever guards.
AT GIRLS’ MEETING
Coaches for Different Sports Named-
Miss Doris Stinnett Makes Talk—
Sports Approved by Dean.
The girls Athletic Association met in
chapel, Thursday, September 24, for the
purpose of electing officers and meeting
the different coaches. Marguerite Harri
son, who was elected president last
Officers elected are: Cecile Lindau,
vice-president, Charlotte Van Noppen,
student council representative, Margaret
Haywood, press reiiorter.
Heads of the various sports made
short talks. They are: Miss Dry, bas
ketball; Miss Walker, tennis; Miss Cau
sey, hockey; Miss Leroy, swimming;
Miss Copper, baseball; Miss Morrow,
hiking; Miss Summerell, training. Miss
Fannie Starr Mitchell, dean of girls,
made a brief talk urging all the girls to
participate in some sjiort.
Marguerite Harrison welcomed both
the old and the new girls. She explained
the many sports to the girls and told
them all to go out for some form of
athletics. “I want every girl in the
school to take part in one or more of
the different sports”. Miss Doris Stin
nett, a former student of Greensboro
High School, who is studying physical
education in Washington, made a talk
on, “What High School Athletics Meant
Quate—Dave has played football all
his life and knows the game. He is a
man who is able to think quickly and
judge where the ball is going.
Trotter—Bill is little but loud in his
ability to play football.
Leonard—Bob is light but is a fast
man and sticks to a pass as if his hands
were covered with glue. Bob is a sure
Ogburn Bros.—It seems that those
strawberry blonds can’t be stopped when
it comes to football.
Maus—J. was a line man last year but
this year he has cast his lot for the back-
field and in this position he has made a
wonderful showing at quarter. J. is es
pecially strong in his kciking and passing
and he is also right in the lineup on a
center rush or line buck.
Strader—Ches. is small, but with the
experience that he had last year and
with the same fighting spirit, he is de
veloping into a wonderful back.
Smith—Roy is an all-round player who
has an unusual ability to cover passes
Watson—Jim had all the promise of
being placed at tackle but in the first
scrimmage of the year he had the bad
luck of breaking his finger and being
put out of play for a couple of days. He
is now out for practice again, however.
Shelton—Phil had a little trouble at
the first call for football and was not
out for practice for the first week but
he has finally been allowed to come out.
Hargrove—Another well known back-
field man, out this season with a strong
determination to make the squad.
Wyrick—Pete comes to us from Mt.
Airy, N. C., bringing with him the repu
tation of a good sport and a hard fight
er, and he is prepared to live up to the
Mattlock Mat. comes to us from
Leaksville, N. C. He was on the team
there for two years, so good work is to
be expected from him. Matt, is a fast
and a snappy player.
Holder Ted did not come out to prac
tice until the second week and for that
reason has been at a disadvantage. Ted
is another prospect for end.
Johnson LeGrande was the first play
er of the season to be put out of play.
(Continued on page six)
Someone asked: “Wonder why Mr.
Miller doesn’t make the band play?”
“I guess he is afraid it’ll scare the
Say Finley and Marguerite, how about
giving a yell for Paul and his little book
next game. Why, he was twice as busy
as the Daily News reporter and was
strutting round like a peacock. Wonder
wdiy he didn’t bow when we gave fifteen
rahs for Wimbish—Too much brains!
A little water boy kept himself quite
busy, eh folks?
Everybody that saw the crates that
Coach Coltrane and Paul were sitting
on was just wishing one would topple
over so there’d be some competition in
picking him up—there was not much in
the game itself.
Oh Boy! we felt like a million dollars
(and some didn’t have a cent) when
we saw' Miss Killingsworth make a love
ly bow in response to the yell we gave.
“Come out and see me. Folks,” she
says,” I’m in Spencer building and can
see you any' afternoon.”
