Shelby's first college football

est gridiron crowds of the year
j in this state.

Double Pulling Power.
The grid game, first ever for this
i section in the college class, will
| ha\" a two-fold pulling power. First
j of all. the Lcnoir-Rhyne coach,
\ Dick Gurley, was once athletic ch
: rector of the Shelby high school
i and due to his personal popularity
: will attract many to the game Ad
i ded to that is the fact that many
■ of his players come from the sre
| (ion roundabout Shelby On his
! team are boys from Kings Moun
tain. CherryviUo, I.incolnton. Maid
en. Dallas. Cliffside, and other
nearby towns. Then. too. the sec
tion north and northeast of Shelby
is well filled with Lutherans, scores
of w^oin will take advantage of
the opportunity to see the Luther
an eleven play so near their homes.
The second big pulling card Is the
fact that Shelby is located Just a
few miles from the South Carolina
border, thus making It convenient
for the South Carolina fans and
the P C. backers lo attend the
Will Shoot Works.
Gurley, pessimistic as roaches are.
believes that P C will have the
ups on his eleven whep It take.,
the field. But put it down for a
surety that the eleven Gurley sends
m the field here Saturday week will
outweigh the fighting Presbyterian
crow, and It will not be such an in
experienced team at that. Another
thing adding to the psychology fa
vorable to the Mountain Bears is
that Coach Gurley showing his
team for the first time before hts
old hometown folks will sling every -
thing he has In his trick bag against
tire South Carolina eleven. P. 0.
may outwind the Lenoir-Rhyne
Bears because Gurley has no great
reserve strength, his freshmen br
ing barred in the P. C. game, but
with that knowledge at hand Coach
Johnson, of Presbyterian, may an
ticipate most anything early in the
game while ihe Lutheran roach has
j hts full strength and his brightest
' opportunity to send the pigskin
! across the goal line.

; this hurler will bo Johnny Walker,
i lbe Knoxville sensation, who hurled
i that city to the South Atlantic
j league pennant. On the other hand
j there are plenty of fans, claiming
| lo know their baseball, who con
| tend that "Curly" Smith, regular
rayonite hurler. is the best pitcher
to be used in the game which is to
be “third and out." “Curly," these
folks argue, wou'd have done a ber
ter job of turning Eastside down
last Saturday than did Jinx Harris.
Other talk has it that Jim Poole,
home run king and leading hitter
of ttic Southern league, until two
tears ago first baseman for Connie
Macks Philadelphia Athletics, may
appear at first base during the
game Poole is a native North Caro
linian and with the Southern league
season ending Sunday is en route
home from Nashville.
While these reports fly thick and
fast in the biggest baseball en
thusiasm Shelby has witnessed
since the high school title clasn
there are those who remind that
last Saturday's game was muchiv
decided by none other than high
school boys. While league bats were
tailing to click at the Shelby city
park, the bats of several high school
boys like Sparks, Farris and Poston
were driving in runs. Too, any
number of fans leaving the game
were not adverse to saying that of
all the players on the field, from
major leaguers to Sally leaguers, the
smoothest bit of baseball flesh was
Cline Owens Lee, who became a
star in Class B baseball one we^k
after helping the Shelby highs win
the North Carolina crown.
It's the last baseball Saturday of
the year for Shelby—and the big
gest. If it does not rain cats and
dogs, and pitchforks Saturday aft
ernoon, look for the largest base
ball crowd at the city park in a1,
least five years.

has been turning out l'ornudabl:

though he knows that with nine let

"My boys win be in there fight

Just so long as every now and then
we can bump off somethefty team j
we won't complain."
The Blue Stockings have the con
solation of knowing, nt least, that
the team will be slightly heavier
than last year. Blackey and Chteum
are a couple of good sized tackles
who ought to hold their own against
the best, of them. Krtchin is a de
cidely able center,
McQueen weighs but 150 pounds
but showed up great last year when
ever he was given the chance at
guard. Captain Beckman is the oth
er guard He weighs 165 pounds.
The ends will be light, Lynn
weighs no more than 140 pounds
and Bennett hardly more than 145.
Ferrine and Clinton, two other end
candidates, also are light men.
Johnson expects much of his
backfield. Jimmy Greene, the out
standing man on the team, is back
and will pilot, the outfit as quarter
back. Dick Green, no relation to
the field general, and Dunlap wi.l
probably alternate at fullback.
Ritchie and "Skeet" Gallaway like
ly will be the two starting half
backs. "Skeet" is a brother to the
celebrated "Chick "
Among the men lost who will be
sorely missed this season are Owens,
who was a great punter, passer and
all around player. Lonnie Dunlap
and Hognefe. Dunlap was the 123
This is the first year in many
that the Blue Stockings will begin
the season without a really great
passer. With Johnson using the
aerial attack widely this will hurt

around nicely but so far lie hasn't
shown the ability of some of F. C's
marvellous passers of other seasons..
