Coaches Weatherby and liatclil'fj
have been working out numerous
offensive combinations, building
each posilmn at hast two deep,
and giving many third stringers
tile chance to work with the start
ers. The slarliiig Waynesville line
up will very likely be the same as
in the last week's lilt, with the
usual heavy substitution.
Coach Albert Shuford, his first
year at Brevard, has built up a
squad of three teams. He opened
the season with Martin .and Parris
at end, Cheek and Nance, tackles;
Compton and Hamlin, guards; Mit
chell, center: Smith, Charles, Heid
and Hidden in the backfield. The
halfbacks. Bill Charles and Hilton
Heid have been two of their best
ground gainers, with Charles also
good at passing.
The Waynesville record of get
ting extra points, with Frvin Shook
running or kicking for most of
then'., is much heller than that of
their opponents, which may be the
deciding issue jn a close game.
The hh'h school band and a large
number of followers from here
will accompany the team to Brevard.
THE MOUNTAINEERS will be
the favorites against Brevard, but
tonight's game should be pretty
close. One factor in favor of Bre
vard is that they are the home
team, which is some slight advan
tage, but if the Mountaineers click
as good tonight as during the past
two Friday's it seems to yours truly
they should win by two touch
downs. In piadice Tuesday after
noon the first stringers were doing
well on some of their plays, but
passes and reverses weren't getting
through as often as they should.
Just one of those lapses that come
sonic days. Coach Weatherby
would eat 'em up a little verbally, !
get his blockers on the hustle, and j
next time the play would go
through the way it's supposed to ;
on the blackboard. When the first '
stringers were put. on the defense
the "B" squad was stopped cold.
The next three games will tell
whether Waynesville has an out-'
standing team or just a good team,1
but so long as they play together
as they're doing now and use their
heads to get every extra yard,
they'll do mighty well.

Black Bears For
One of Key Games
In their fourth game of the 1945
football season, Canton's Black
Bears battled with the strong Mor
ganton team until the game ended
in a (i-6 tie.
Now they are preparing for their
fourth game of the present season.
Tonight at 8 o'clock they again
face the Morganton eleven, in the
! Carton High stadium. It looks like
