SATDBDAT, JAN. tt, ItM THB CABOUNA mm NCC Quint Preps For ICIash With Ancient Rivals Jan. 27 SPORTS SLANTS (BY YE OLE SCRIBE) The rafters will jump, the fans will scream and the thermometer will run a hot box here next Wednesday night when the Eagles and A. and T. draw swords in the North Cabolina College Gym. One certain there will be no loafing by either team. Fans are always willings to shell out their cash for any kind of meet between the Eagles and the Aggies because they know every minute will be packed with tenseness and thrills galore. Alreati^ they are talking about the Marciano-Charles heavyweight bout scheduled to come off in June. Charles has a chance to do in heavyweight circles what has never been done, and that is regain his crown of the world. Old- timers although saying he won’t do it are keeping their lingers crossed and their tongues in their cheeks. Charles supporters say that the former heavyweight champion is go ing to write a new chapter in the history of heavyweight fighting. My name is Chess, not Bess,, I ain’t having nuthing to do with that mess bruther. I am going to sit this one out out on the sidelines. The Fayetteville Broncos were really hot here last Thursday evening, or was their opponents just cold, when ihey met the Virginia Seminary of Lynchburg. The Broncos rolled up a total of 108 points agfunst the Virginians. This sounds to me like the highest score made by a CIAA team this season. Or is it? Keep your ears to the ground the Durham Bulls may sign a Negro player for next season. The time is right, ripe and ready. If they do the turnstile will click with more rapidity than heretofore and for the first time in many sea sons tan fans in the Bull City will show some interest in local league baseball. Wft gave Sam Jones, North Carolina College’s star for ward the name “Sad” Sam Jones? It appears to us that the only thing sad about that boy or his playing is that exhibited by players on opposing teams when they see him walk on the court.

Ezzard Charles Earns %(AHM In Bob Satterfield Fight But Gets Rocky Marciano Bid In June CHICAGO The two round victory Ez zard Charles won so convin cingly over Bob Satterfield here this week, won the ex champion not only $8,644.40 for the four minutes work but a real chance at big money with a strong bid from the Marciano camp. Immediately after the fight it was announced that Charles’ managers will meet with James D. Norris, Internation al Boxing Club president and Al Weill, manager of Rocky Marciano in New York to dis cuss a defense by Marciano against Charles for next June. And according to Traman Gik- son, I. B. C. secretary, tke bout would probably be at tkc Polo Ground or tke Tankee Stadium. Weill in New York thought Ezzard had really clinched a June shot at Marciano’s crown. Ezzard might do one or two tuneup fights in March, thougth Truman Gibson, if the ' fight with Marciano turned out to be the end of June. Meanwhile, defeated Satter field added his praise to Es- zard’s growing circle. Re thought the former champ a great puncher, natch, and pre dicted he would regain tbe title.

Bonner is the Broncos Captain. The Galnesmen got off to a somewhat slow start against the Virginia basketeers who put up a terrific fight through out the first period, but it was not in the book for them to take that game. Once the vlc- 4tory-hungry Broncos got their eye on the basket they put sm( the visitors’ eyes and went on to “make-em” from all angles of the court.
