OF WINNING TITLE
The Greensboro high school baseball
nine lost their first conference game
of the season with the Black Bisons of
High Point high school in the furniture
city by the score of 5-4, in a closely
contested game Friday, April 8.
Clements pitched for the local team,
while Harold Culler did the mound
work for High Point.
Whitt Made Longest Hit
“Bed” Whitt, Greensboro center-
fielder, made the longest hit of the
game by poling out a home run to deep
left field. “Red” Riley, Greensboro
catcher, led the hitting with three hits
out of three times at bat, one of them
being a three-bagger, while H. Smith,
local shortstop, and Ridge, fligh Point
catcher, came through with two hits
out of three times at bat. One of H,
Smith’s drives was a triple also.
Culler Pitched Fine Game
Clements pitched his usual good
brand of ball but wildness ruined his
exhibition of pitching. Culler pitched
a fine game for the Pointer club,
lowing only seven hits and striking out
nine men. The Greensboro infield and
outfield worked smoothly, handling all
their chances without an error marked,
Greensboro had seven men left
bases and High Point had five. If the
local nine could have come through
with more hits at the right time they
would probably have saved the game.
High Point Scores
High Point got off to a good start,
scoring one run in the first inning and
adding three more in the second
ning. Greensboro didn’t score until the
second inning when they scored one
run, adding another in the fourth and
fifth and one more in the eighth. The
last Pointer score came in the seventh
inning, Both teams piled up the same
amount of hits, Clements allowing sc
and Culler giving Greensboro the same
amount. Five errors were chalked up
against the Pointer nine while Greens
boro had none to their credit.

YOUNG DIAMOND STAR
Luted for Position Held by “Red” Riley
But Placed As Third Sacker
For This Season.
Houston A. Lawlng, sports editor of
the Greensboro Record, says that Amos
Shelton outstanding third sacker for
the Greensboro high school baseball
“eats, drinks, and studies base
Shelton is one of the most outstand
ing young players in Greensboro, and
should develope into a real baseball
player. Mr. Lawing names Shelton as
a promising catcher, but he can also
play most any infield position In ex
cellent style. When Shelton first re
ported to the high school nine, he was
listed as a catcher, but “Red"' Riley
field that position and the local base
ball mentor considered him too valu
able a candidate to keep idle; so gave
film the “hot corner” position where
fie has been playing excellent ball.
Shelton has played ball for the local
American T.egion nine and was regular
catcher on last year's team that was
tunner-up for state title. He also made
fils letter at Greensboro high last year
ta baseball and received a' letter In
fiasketball this season.
This young diamond star has been
• blghly praised for his baseball ability
by .Mr. Imwlng and Bill Stoner, coach
of the American Legion nine, and great

cellent Showing in

Many Valuable Players Belong to
American Legion Junior Base
Coach Stanley Johnson’s baseball
squad, representing senior high school
shows the most promising of any local
nine for the past number of years, and
the team should carry the purple and
gold colors a long way in the race for
first place honors in the state confer
ence league this season.
Coach Johnson has put a well-bal
anced combination on the field so far
and the local aggregation has come
through with great form against some
stiff opposition in the early season
games |)layed to date.
Experienced Players Represented
The local nine is composed of a gr
many players who have had experience
ill high school baseball or with teams
in the same or higher class baseball.
The mound staff has proved to be one
of the strongest combinations to ap
pear for G. II. S. in a number of years,
with Ed Clements and “Buck” Peake
forming a combination to be feared by
any opposing batter.
Both of these fellows were oufstaiid-
Ing memliers of the local American I.e-
gion nine and were considered the
most outstanding pitchers in tlie Junior
league. 'I'wo more candidates for tlie
staff who have shown real pitching
ability are Jack Foster and llughe
Clements, younger brother of Ed (Tom-
ents, who lias shown that lie c:an put
plenty of stuff on a baseball, but
still has plenty of room to add .steam
to his dellveries-
Foster has shown good form but is
a bit wild. Ralph "Red” Riley, veterao
catcher, rounds out a battery to be en
vied by any baseball club. Riley has
liud experience as catcher for all of
the above mentioned pitchers and
knows how to get the best results from
each one. “Red” is the regular back
stop while Weldon Gray and Clarke
Crutchfield can be depended upon to
£idd reserve strength.
Infield Well Balanced
The infield presents a well-balanced
eombiration with Whitt and Wall, first
basemen; Carroll, second; Smith,
short; and Shelton, third. Whitt can
be sliifted to short or the outfield at
any time where he is just as good, and
Wall can be depended upon to fill the
first base position.
The outfield is composed of Ray,
left; Wharton, center; and Bullock, or
Rees, right. Of this combination Bul
lock, Wharton, and Ray are most out-
stinding and have shown the most hit
ting ability, while Rees has proved to
be a dependable player.
As a whole the squad is a strong
combination and lias shown great
strength at bat. If one player fails to
come through with a lilt, the next man
may knock the old horsehide out of the
lot for a home run.
Conch Johnson is quite an expert at
baseball and knows bow to run a ball
club, having gained his experience
through playing professional baseball
and possessing a real knowledge of tlie
fundamentals of baseball science.

SPOTLIGHTS OF SPORTS
Sixty Boys Report for Football
Hr. Belding expressed his disappointment in spring football.
Sixty boys reported the first week, but the candidates soon dwindled
down to twenty and for that reason spring football was discontinued.
There were no prospects for the flank position on the next season’s
squad. The boys who attracted the most attention were Laurence
Wilson and Toby Burroughs.
If Wilson will put on some weight, he should give someone compe
tition for tackle. Spring football failed to produce the three guards,
four tackles, and three ends that Mr. Belding hoped for.
Girls Go Out for Tennis
With around fifty promising candidates, Miss Kate Robinson has
hopes for a winning girls’ team this year. Because of lack of tennis
courts near school, the girls have been practicing in any available place.
Letting them have about three weeks to get in form, Miss Robinson
will start a ladder or elimination contest between the candidates at
the close of the practice period.
The leaders at the close of the contest will compose the team to
represent Greensboro high. No schedule has been arranged yet.
Miss Robinson said the girls are getting in five hours of practice
It is presumed that most of the students have observed the work
being done by the boys who compose Mr. Cobb’s manual training
classes beyond tiie Science building. They are constructing, for the use
of all senior liigh students, four tennis courts. These courts will be
open to those wishing to play tennis as soon as the boys can finish them.

Former Athletes Star
A number of former G. H. S. athletic stars are making big suc
cesses in the field of professional baseball. Since the St. Louis Cardi
nals organization took over the local baseball club, many local players
have signed with this organization and are on their way to fame. The
chain system in organized baseball seems to give a lot more young
players their chance in the baseball world.
One of the most outstanding former high players is Jimmy Mans.
Mans played for the local club last season and finished the year with a
great record, holding down the regular position as catcher until he
received a leg injury. He was out for a good while; he came back
and took up his fight where he had left off. This year Maus trained
with the St. Louis club in Bradenton, Florida, and then was ordered
to report back to Greensboro where he was assigned to play with the
Elmira club of the New York-Pennsylvania League.
Gordon “Shorty” Smalley is another former G. H. S. star with
the Patriots this year. Smalley was a member of the Patriot team last
year but did not pitch in any of the scheduled games, being used to.
pitch to the hitters during batting practice.
“Beany” Curtis, former G. II. S. pitcher, started out last season
with the Patriots but later pitched for Winston-Salem and other teams.
Curtis has not signed with any club yet but will probably be picked up
by some club later on.
“Nap” Lufty was a member of the Greensboro club last year but
did not stick. Lufty has signed with the Raleigh club of the Piedmont
League this season.
Pete Wyrick signed with Greensboro this year but was released a
few days ago.
The Whirlwind diamond squad looks
as if it is well on its way to the con
ference championship having won 4 of

to High Point and Oak Ridge. The
whole team is doing very good work
under the instruction of their jiewcoach,

team opened its season Friday, March.

The Oak Ridge Cadets came so near
being defeated by the locals that they

After the dust had cleared away, the
score was 9 to 7 in the cadets’ favor.

of making awards.
Racqueteers Lose First Match
G. IT. S.’s tennis team, began the sea
son with a loss to Burlington high
school’s racqueteers. In the past
Greensboro has bad long and extensive
practice before the actual conference
games began. However, this year the
team has had little or no practice. The
fact that the courts were not in order
was the principal reason. Burlington
has a number of courts, and they have
been In shape for a long time. Greens
boro, as large as it is, has very few
courts and none of these have been in
shape. This proved a serious handicap
to our boys, and was undoubtedly a
factor in their losing. This is not an
excuse for the loss of the tennis team’s
first game, but an explanation of the
conditions prior to the game.
