Rage Three
Tigers Enjoy a Fine Season
By Joe Durham
O.C.T.S. Tigers appear to be
in high spirit over their 1944
season, although they lost four
games. In all, they played seven
games, winning one, tieing two,
and losing four.
The Tigers played their first
game with the “Little Blues” of
Raleigh, losing by the score of
33-0. The next game was won by
the Tigers upon invading Carver
High School team, that was
coached by the uncle of our
coach, “Sticks” Scales. After put
ting up a stubborn fight, the
Carver Bears were finally over
powered by the pile-driving of
our backfield, and the excellent
blocking of our lines. 0. T. Ed
wards, one of our steady backs,
galloped 30 yards for a touch
down, the first and only one.
Matthew Farrington, the first
year end, crashed through the
opponents' line to trap Carver’s
runner behind their own goal
line, thus giving us a safety.
Outstanders for the game were
“Tint” Mason, “Peterwink” Ed
wards, “O. T.” Edwards, Joe
Durham, Samuel Boyd and
Matthew Farrington.
After a few days of rest the
Tigers tangled with Dudley High
School of Greensboro. Going on
the field as the underdogs the
Tigers soon turned the Panthers
upside down. The Tiger's were
the masters of the field from the
first blast until the last blast of
the official’s horn.
“Peterwink” Edwards, quarter
back, intercepted a pass on the
Panther 20-yard line and easily
lan our only touchdown, tieing
the score, 6-6.
It seems as if the Dudley team
was stunned to find so much
dynamite in such a small pack
age as “Boot” Cates, Sam Boyd
and Sam Head. John “Glamour
Roy” Riggins put in a swell per
formance of defensive play, along
with versatile Joe Durham. “Lish
Burch ette” developed in grand
Fortunately that most of our
backs are snake-skinned and
greasy, and our line is a concrete
wall, as the Tigers all want to
The Tigers then had a return
engagement with the “Little
Blues” of Raleigh and again
were defeated by the score of
36-0. We then played the Wil
liam Penn Ramblers of High
Point, both teams being equally
ranked, and the Tigers closed the
game with a tieing score of

The Tigers later had a return
engagement with the Panthers of
Dudley High. Both teams were
equally matched until the last
quarter when the Panthei-s took
advantage of their breaks and
scoi’ed twice for the score of
The outstanders for that game
were: Samuel Boyd, John Rig
gins, 0. T. Edwards and Willis
Edwarls. The Tigers e.xperi-
cnced a great thrill when Joe
Durhan made a remarkable in
terception and ran 65 yards be
fore bung trailed and brought
down irom behind.
The last game of the season
was played in Winston-Salem
against the crafty Atkins High
eleven. Here the Tigers were de
feated 7-6 in one of the finest
games of the season. Due to the
lack of e.xperienced officials, the
Tigers were unable to defeat the
Atkins team.
The long lettermen for the
year aie all seniors, being as
follows: Joe “Co-Captain” Dur-
h a ni, .Trtbn Riggins, Alvesta
Walker, John Allen, Thomas Mc
Duffie and Fred Winston . . . The
other great players are: Willis
Edwards, back; 0. T. Edwards,
back; Johnnie Mason, back; Mat
thew Farrington, end; “Lish”
Burchette, end; George Webb,
end; Walter Winstead, end;
Otis Pettiford, end; Nathan Rog
ers, tackle; James Cates, tackle;
Samuel Head and Albert- Wash
ington, both tackles; Samuel
Boyd, Jeppie Foushee and Herbert
Paylor are “guards.” Ben Woods

Joe Durham, center, and co-cap
tain for the team, became partly
famous by making two 65-yard
runs, one in Greensboro, and one
in Winston-Salem against Atkins
High. Both times he made a re
markable interception. Willis Ed
wards, co-captain, and still back
has been the sparkplug for the
team by making four touchdowns
this season, plus the remarkable
playing of Johnnie Mason, 0. T.
Edwards and Matthew Farring

Second Year Foods
Class Operates
School Cafeteria
The second year foodsf class
took over, what for a tiine ap
peared the impossible—the opera
tion of the school cafeteria this
In the absence of a third year
class in home economics, the
class that usually operates the
cafeteria, our lunchroom looked
doubtful. Students began to
speak of hot lunches as a thing
of the past; mothers became up-
.«ei as their small children greet
ed them at evening with long
faces and tearful eyes. Dissatis
faction was on every tongue over
the uncertainty of there being a
cafeteria this year.
However, it so happened that
the second year home economics
class that had studied foods last
year decided, along with our
leacher. Miss Pope, that we
would do something about it. We
would shoulder that cafeteria
responsibility. In preparation, we
studied cafeteria management, in
which unit we learned something
on quantity cookery, nutrition at
low cost, health requiremeats of
our state, business procedure,
and public policy. Thus, set
up the following policies to gov
ern our cafeteria:
1. Cash today; credit tomor
2. Deciding on what is wanted
before going to the counter.
3. Abstinence from picking
over or handling food that is not

food counter when passing by.

sible in the use of our limited

and service accordingly.
7. Welcoming favorable com
ment, as well as inviting any re
port of dissatisfaction.
