r T seems as if for a good many
tj years past the loir:!.field at
*'L the University of Minnesota
r\a been a pretty well known
< uantity. Long before the season
ooened the names of famous ball
e irriers and line plungers were
I oadciSt from the seat of leam
i. g at Minneapolis.
Always those names have been
of the caliber that parents use to

respect. It may be found to be

know who is apt to carry the ball
in the pinches. In case of doubt it
is always good football to center
the attention on the star ball car
rier. This is often pretty hard on
the star ball carrier, but after all
it’s irond football.
As usual Spears had a big squad
of hefty huskies in uniform trying
for the team and, as always, Min
nesota has tossed plenty of beef
into the games thus far this sea
son. Out of this material Spears
will undoubtedly develop some ex
cellent backfield material and by
the end of the season it wouldn’t
be at all surprising to find two or
more ball carriers of the Joesting
The line, even before the first
game was played, was fairly def
inite and exceedingly strong and
dependable. Captain George Gib
Son ranked high as a guard last
season and his early work this
year make3 him a dependable cog
in the Spears machine. At the
other guard position is Les Pul
krabek and the wingnien are Bob
Tanner and Kenneth Haycraft.

Physician Successfully Treats Mice

United States public health service
i. discovered that radio waves
have curative powers. Experiments

five years, in which thousands of
white mice were sacrificed to sci

have demonstrated their value as a
no: ible cure for cancer.
Devised by Scliereschnvsky.
Dr. J. W. Schereschevvsky, a sur
geon cf the Public Health Service, is
the scientist to whom the world will
„te indebted if the radio waves that
have cured mice of cancers are
eqrally as efficacious when applied
to human beings. Born in China, of
Polish parentage. Or. Schereschews
ky was educated at Dartmouth col
lege and Harvard university. Before
being transferred to Boston, where
in cooperation with Harvard uni
versity he is continuing his studies
of radio waves as a potential cure,
he was located in Washington, as
chief of the division of scientific re
's-arch of the Public Health Service.

main Hartley circuit; a parallel
wire sysu.m as a means of measuring
the short radio waves; current
measuring devices; a celluloid box
for holding the mouse, which is in

First To Study Effects.
This is the first time in the history
of radio or animal life that the ef
fects of high frequency current upon
animal kind have been studied. The
only similar experiments were those
of French scientists who used a
radio tube in producing waves for
the treatment of tumors In gera
nium plants. This diseased plant
life, for a period of about sixteen
days, acted as a sort of short-wave
receiver, the extremely short wave
length of approximately one meter
being used. One p’ant was given
two exposures of three nours on
consecutive days, one plant three,
and one plant eleven such expos
ures, the tumors, growing in the
mean time, began to decay.
Dr. A. M. Stimson, chief of the
division of scientific research of the
public heal service, in appraising
the curative value of radio waves,
declares: “Dr. Schereschwsky has
found that by submitting mice which
had cancer artificially induced in
them to this high-frequency of radio
current a certain percentage of
them can be cured. At the same
time, he has found that some of
them, if the dosage is a little too
high, will die. It is a question of
further investigation to determine
the exact dosage of this physical
agent. However, he had thirty mice
that had terrible tumors and after
the treatment the tumors subsided
and the mice lived.”
TRAPPING IS JEST
TO CONTROL MOLES
Moles have been giving consider
able trouble in some communities
during the past season. They are
found in pastures, meadows, berry
fields, gardens, lawns and flower and
Tests made by the United States
Biological Survey indicate that trap
ping is the only satisfactory method
of control. They have experimented
with poison, but since the mole lives
nearly entirely on worms, grubs,
etc., no poison has yet been found
that is an effective control.
Gas, which has been effectively
used in the control of some rodents,
is not effective against moles be
cause of the difficulty of confining
the animals long enough for the gas
to be effective.
Flower and bulb growers may
obtain seme relief by using a re
pellant by which the moles are
driven away from the beds. Naph
talene is a good repellant.

Grid Gossip |
| Two Good Games j
Football Future '
Football fans in and around
Shelby are in for a big week
A good many grid fans will
journey down to Chapel Hill to
see the Carolina boys attempt
to do something the Notre Dame
Irish could not—stop Georgia
Tech; others will motor only to
Charlotte for the Davidson -
Wake Forest game, but the ma
jority will remain at home for
the Oak Ridge-Boiling Springs
The coming of Oak Ridge to Shel
by should herald 'a new era in lo
cal football. The prep outfit will
be the best known grid outfit to
perform here—that is, when the
famous Shelby highs of other years
are overlooked. Moreover it means
that Shelby is to see the football
outfit of North' Carolina’s newest
college, Boiling Springs, in action
for the first time.
And put it down for a fact that
Boiling Springs should show Shelby
some football Saturday although
doped to lose to the strong Oak
Goble And Moore.
Only last year supporters of Shel
by high wondered time and again
how a football eleven would look
with Buck Coble playing one tackle
and Howard Moore the other. Those
who go out to the city park Satur
day will see just that with five oth
er big boys in the line with them.
If Coach Hammett with the as
sistance of “Shine” Blanton can get
that big Boiling Springs line going
a little harder on defense than they
have been the Ridgers led by the
hefty-driving Landis, former Char
lotte high star, will have quite a
task breaking through the line.
Blanton ought to be able to tell
the Baptist boys something about
defense. He was a defensive star
at Carolina, such a defensive star
that it is said he never carried the
ball but was used entirely bv Bill
Petzer for defense and interfer

Tn fact, Boiling Springs ought to
lick Oak Ridge, and could so if they
get going, a trick the boys haven't
turned so far this year.
Would Aid College.
If the boys for once realized what
their showing against Oak Ridge
will mean to their college in its in
fancy and to them next year, Oak
Ridge would ggt a real surprise here
Saturday, because those who have
seen the Boiling Springs outfit in
action this year know that the Bap
tists can play football if they want
to. So far, some one hasn't seem
ed to care much.
If (that little word is bobbing
up often) Boiling Springs could de
feat Oak Ridge here Saturday then
go through the remainder of their
schedule in good shape, Boiling
Springs could get on the schedule
of such colleges as Guilford, Elan.
High Point and Lenoir-Rhyne next
j year. If they keep on losing this
: year it will take ten years of good
playing to redeem the school and
get on a regular college schedule.
Think what a football schedule
with Guildford and Lenoir-Rhyne
on the list would mean to the new
college. In this writer’s opinion it
would pay the Kings Mountain Bap
tist "association to write over to the
new college and tell the boys to
win Saturday's game or come so
near winning it that Oak Ridge will
feel a near defeat.

And, as we’ve said several times,
Boiling Springs has it. The need is
some "putting out.”
NORTH CAROLINA COLLEGES
should give Georgia Tech, and the
other Southern grid kings, spasms
next year Judging by their fresh
elevens. Ben Clary, Gaffney boy who
was considered one of the best high
school stars ever produced in the
Carolinas, hasn’t been able to get
on Duke’s first string fresh outfit.
Which means that Duke nas some
real material or there is something
dumb going on about the roll-your
own campus. And at Chapel Hill
Laymon Beam, who kept Shelby
fans standing up for two years, is
on the second-string fresh eleven.
INCIDENTALLY THAT OTHER
good grid game here this week-end
is the Shelby-Hickory clash. The
packed sidelines at the Charlotte
game last Friday indicated that
Shelby loves football as of yore. And
take it from us, although it may be
a bad prediction. Hickory will show
the fans here more real football
than did Charlotte.
Then, you know, you’ll be seeing
Milky Gold and Zeno Wall jogging
about the field together with that
line of seven youngsters who held
like grim death on four occasions to
keep Charlotte from crossing after
getting to the 5-yard-line.
