Bv PERRY R. LEAZER
KING FOOTBAIX TAKES A BACKSEAT TO MAKE
VAY FOR THE ROUND BALL SPORT.
Vith the corning of basketball, thus ends
fhe predictions for ’58. We never achieved
mr wish, that of having a perfect week.
Many times we were able to come up with
only on set back and, on one occasion, on
ly a tie marred the predictions. The best
progrisnacators have their worst moments.
Remember Gallup in 48?
During the season we were able to pick
70 winners, against 15 losses iind three
tjes. Averagewise, your humble scribe batted a lofty .815.
AAT Can Pick Up All The^Marbles
dONGRATtJLATIONS TO A. & T. COLLEGE’S FINE
F(WTBALL TEAM on winning the CIAA championship.
With thfj football crown under their 'belt, the Aggies can pick
up all the marbles this sports year. They are odds-on favor
ites to Win the cage championship, their baseballers are al
ways rough and their track and tennis teams are showing
marked improvement. If the Aggies are able to win the
major sports crowns this year, they’ll be duplicating a Mary
land State feat in 1955-56.
IF ANY ORCHIDS ARE PASSED OUT ANY WAY"
SOON, THOSE PASSING THEM out shouldn’t overlook the
North Carolina College student body. Thpir protest of
changing the site of the Thanksgiving Day game and their
invasion of the A. .& T. Campus, in the wee hours of morn
ing, gave the game much-needed publicity and added some
color to the traditional rivalry. In other years no excite
ment such as they created with their antics prior to the big
game could match that generated by the students of 58.
THE A. & T. - NCC GAME HAS NO VICTORY BELL,
HONEY BUCKET, BROWN JUG or other traditional trinkets
that other big schools have that goes to the winning team and
remains on the campus f>r one year. Alumni of the two
schools should pet together and buy or make some suitable
award that would go to the winner each year.
. ' Correspondence ,
WELL, AT LAST THIS COLUMN GOT SOME MAIL
and since it wis so interesting I thought that I would share
it wifh you. The letter is from the editor of the “Register,”
A. & T. College’s student newspaper. Herewith is its com
“IF,” that, nagty word as you call it, is out of the ques
tion. A. i T. won the CIAA football championship. Let’s
see some good comments about that in your column. To NCC
better Juqk next year, and you also in your “LEAZER’S
LEAN PiCKIN’S. ” . _
Instead of just saying “A. & T.^ oagers are loaded,”
how about some comment on some of our good boys as was
done of NCC’s Carlton “Ding Dong” Bell. After all, wp are
tl;e visitation and tournament champions in basketball also.

ALONZO STEVENS, Editor
IN VIEW OF THE FACT THAT I SENT OUT CON-
GllATULATIONS TO THE AGGIES elsewhere in the column
i I shall now try to atone for the other shortcomings of mine
arf you stated. To be truthful about it Mr. Stevens, I didn’t
want 4o scare all the other teams in the conference for fear
they Wouldn’t show up when they’re supposed to iplay those
awes^e Aggies. However, since you want me to mention
som^ of their standouts by name I will do so.
JOSEPE COTTON, 6-4 forward, should easily be. the
cbnference’s outstanding individual player if his perform
ance in the CIAA tournament last year is an indication of Ws
t AL ATTLES, fastest man in the CIAA last year, should
have no trouble garnering conference honors and hiight pos
sibly make the NAIA Little—All-American.
i IIOLTZCLAW, EDWARDS and CHARLIE HARRISON,
\ggies rebounder, will have to be reckoned with.
If any of the teams on the Aggies’ schedule fail to show,
lon’t blame me.
Aggies Whip NCC For OAA GriJTiHe
BY EAGLES ^
Coach Bert Piggott's A and T
College Ag^es scored a 20-18
triumph over North Carolina
College at O’Kelly Field here
Thanksgiving Day to ice the
grid crown of the 18 college
CIAA. A&T tallied 14 points in
the first period, added 6 in the
second and staved off NCC’s
desperate rally after an 18 point
It was Piggott’s second
straight win over NCC’s Herman
Riddick in the most explosive i
tilt of the 28 game series ini
which A and T now leads:
The game marked the first |
time since 1953 that NCC lost
on O’Kelly Field. Irate students
earlier handed their athletic di
rector, Dr. I. G. Newton, • in
effigy because he planned to
shift the game to Durham Ath
letic Park which could accom
modate 10,000. An overflow
crowd of 8,500 saw Aggie quar
terback Paul Swann spell tlie
Eagles’ doom with deadly passes
In the opening minutes of the
Swann, Washington, D. C.
junior quarterback, hurled his
first TD aerial to frosh halfback
Joe Taylor in a play thatj
covered 37 yards.
Minutes later, Swann, 6-1, 107
lb. field general, hit senior end
Burnie McQueen on the run in
a 50 yard scoring tally.
Sophomore fullback Burnie
Anderson of Fayettevil^ plun
ged 8 yards for the final A and T
The turning point in the hotly
contested affair proved to be
frosh halfback Gene Cambridge’s
two point conversion from an
off-tackle run after the first TD.
NCC never really recovered
from that bl6w. '
Star for NCC was alternate
quarterback Ike (the whip) Gat
ling, Newport News, Va., senior j
in his last collegiate game. |
Gatling tossed his first TD of|
the afternoon to pintsized half-1
back Willie (Pete) Hayes, Dur-|
ham senior halfback. I
Catling spnroH his sccond Td|
in a one yard plunge'that capped
a 28 yard drive. Buck Forbes,
stellar NCC guard, recovered an
Aggie fumble to set up the score.
Foe NCC’s third TD, Gatling
tossed to endj.George (Gorgeous
George) .Wallace in a play that^
carried 64 yards fo rthe score, i
NCC and A and T students,!
players, and holiday-inspired
spectators rushed to the field in
the closing minutes to contribute
to a melee of a type never before
seen on O’Kelly Field.
