LITTLE EXCITEMENT OVER
TODAY’S FOOEALL GAMES
riteic-lMiuth Carolina Contes! Hobis
Center of Stage With Duke-Caro

Today's football matches will cause

Not that this rest is not needed.
First there came the Baptist-Carolina
tilt with, it was said, a decision as to
the state champiouship right there in
the very beginning of the season.
Then followed t'dat all unnerving and
violently exciting meet wherein the
Davidson Wildcats worked ou tft»

llet's cleverly put it, » moral yietory.
The latter game put on the finish

to their beds in their respective homes
during the past week, either high
blood pressure due to a too great joy
bringing about their illness ore else
an acute attack of melancholia being
resjiousibie for their bad turn.
This week, however, the followers
of t’he world's greatest game will
watch the State-South Carolina melee
with greater interest than they will
any of the ortifrr contests. The rea
son for this is that State is still ati
unknown qhantity with great possi

sufficiently balanced to win from tlie

in this state, but lie'will not be able
to pull State through.
The vCarolina-Duke number holds
second place in interest. Carolina
should win and will do so. H nothing
goes amiss. Coach Herron's eleven
