The J. W. Llgon Little Blue* will
make their debut before the home
crowd Thursday night at Chavis
Park when they play host to Book*
er T. Washington High from Rocky
Mount in an Eastern District Con*
feience ball game. Game time Is
set for 7:30 p. m.
This will be the second of two
games scheduled for the Little
Blues this week. They are to meet
Gamer Consolidated Tuesday af
ternoon in Gamer at 1:30 p. m.
Llgon opened the season against
Booker T. Washington and was de
feated 3-0 behind the strong pitch
ing and hitting of James Vines. The
crafty left-hander only allowed the
Blues one hit and struck out 19
while out-dueling Ligon's ace, Al
fonzo Jones. Jones pitched well
enough to win the average by only
giving up three hits and striking
out 12 batters but hurt his own
cause by allowing one run to score
by balking in the 4th inning.
Later In the 6th frame, Vines
came through with a triple to knock
in the other two markers while
wrapping up the game for himself.
Llgon Coach "Pete” Williams
stated he would have Jones on the
mound Thursday and expected
Booker T to counter with Vines
again. He also stated, "We've got
to get some power from somewhere.
Our hitters are swinging late or
not swinging at all. Our lack of
power is really hurting plus we are
weak behind the plate, but I still
don't know what change* I can
make to improve the situation, but
I'm going to do something.”
The starting line-up for the home
opener will probably be Robert Al
len at second base, James Hines at
third, Arthur Graham in center
field and Jones on the Mound. The
other starting players will be chos

Fast aa a first-claas spin tar, Mc-

a carry in 13 games, and scored 46
touchdowns for hia high school In

pretty fair left-handed passer and
he kicks extra points, too.
Will he become a Trojan? Scho
