With only one more practice

Forest City for the group
championship In the state base
On paper Forest City holds the
edge in the Important game, hav

but Coach Morris has been driving
his team hard this week endeavor

contribute the additional punch
necessary to keep the Morrismen in
the state race. All this week the
boys on the team have been hear

Forest City has an unusually strong
baseball team. It has all-around
strength-heavy hitting fast field

coaches say that the winner of
Friday's game here will go to
Chapel Hill and Forest City Is spur
red up to cop the game and make a
bid for their second state title. Two
previous victories over the Shelby
ties should serve to give them the
proper belief in their ability Friday;
The chief worry they could have ts

Chances arc that Coach Morris
