MAYOR PROCLAIMS
‘GRID DAY’ HERE
Committee Makes Plans For
Week-End; Davidson, Citadel
Continue Drills
A meeting to speed up lagging
ticket sales for the Davidson-Cita
del football game at Legion stadium
Saturday afternoon was held by
the general football committee at
the ticket headquarters on Prin
cess street last night. V
H. H. Jeter, chairman of the
committee, reviewed efforts to date
and urged all present to lend all
aid possible to making the venture
a success.
Pointing out the importance of
the game not only to Wilmington
but to the entire section, W. R.
Dosher declared that the contest
Saturday is the test of whether or
not college football is to be con
tinued here.
“This is Wilmington s opportuni
ty to participate in an industry
that means considerably more than
the game itself,” he said, and
“everybody in the city should buy
a ticket,- use it or give it to some
one else to use.”
Dosher stressed the fact that “not
a dime in contributions was sought,
but we want to sell the tickets
and we promise to give the pur
chaser his money’s worth.”
In connection with the game
Mayor Thomas E. Cooper last
night issued a proclamation that
proclaimed Saturday, November 30,
as “Davidson-Citadel Day” in Wil
mington and urged that the citi
zens of the city support the game
as they would any other worth
while community enterprise in the
spirit of a civic obligation.
Over one-half of the seats in the
stadium remain unsold. However,
members of the committee ex
pressed the belief that with a con
certed effort between now and Sat
urday that a majority of the re
maining seats will be sold.
Tickets will be on sale today at
125 Princess street and at Fu
trelle’s, Saunders and Toms drug
stores. They will also be sold at
these places on Friday and Satur
day morning. The Princess street
office will remain open both day
and night between now and Sat
urday.
Jeter aeciareu mat iai n
game goes the Davidson-Citadel
contest rates as good as any in the
state this year. “There is a strong
possibility that the game will be
decided on the point after touch
down,” he declared.
At the suggestion of F. P. O’
Crowley it was decided that the
committee will meet again Friday
for a pre-game check-up on ticket
sales.
The Davidson and Citadel teams
will arrive in the city by bus Fri
day afternoon. Friday night the
Davidson band will give a concert
on the postoffice steps.
The 106-piece Columbus county
band, the New Hanover and
Washington. N. C. high school
bands will play in the downtown
street parade Saturday morning
between 10 and 11 o’clock.
H. R. Cavenaugli at the meeting
last night requested that anyone
who could take a member of the
band into their homes over the
week-end to get in touch with
either he or Jeter immediately. He
praised the work of Mrs. George
Mitchell in placing most of the
band members already.
Other plans for the colorful
week-end of gridiron festivities
were discussed, with final details
to be worked out by individual
committee members.
Meanwhile Davidson and Citadel
football teams went through stiff
workouts yesterday in preparation
for their Southern conference bat
tle, which is rated close to a toss
up at this time.

cold rain, with Dave Spencer
breaking loose on the muddy field
for several long gains against a
reserve eleven. Johnny Fredericks,
hefty fullback, plowed through the
line repeatedly to aid Spencer in
picking up yardage.
Ben Lacy, who has been taking
it easy, opened up and tested his
injured leg. He showed no signs
of the Charley horse that kept him
out of the Hampden-Sydney tilt
and relieved Fredericks in numer
ous jaunts through the line.
Sweeping runs were held to a
minimum because of the field's con
dition but Claude Hackney and
Wileman Elily showed up well on
reverses. Hank Bahnson and George
Marsh were the line standouts.
Citadel was hampered somewhat
by rain but worked out on pass
defense and their own offensive
weapons.
Journal Says Buckeyes
Not To Re-Hire Schmidt
COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 26— (2P)—
The Ohio State Journal said to
night that it learned from an “un
impeachable source” that Fran
cis A. Schmidt would not be re
employed as football coach at
Ohio State university.
Informed of the story, J. L. Mor
rill, chairman of the athletic board
and vice president of Ohio State,
said that “positivelly no action of
any kind has been taken and there
is no plan to take any immediate
action.”
Schmidt, whose team was crush
ed 40 to 0 by Michigan Saturday to
conclude the worst Buckeye sea
son in 10 years, was in Cleveland
for an alumni banquet and could
not be reached at once. L. W. St.
John, Ohio State athletic director,
also was out of the city.

Gophers Again Rated
No. l Team Of Nation
Texas Aggies, Stanford, Bos
ton May Have Chance To
Grab Top Place
By BILL BOXI
NEW YORK, Nov. 26.—(£*)—
rhough Minnesota definitely de
dared itself out of the Rose Bowl
jicture today, the Western confer
ence football champions figure
»'ery importantly in one post-sea
son contest.
The Golden Gophers again are
he No. 1 team of the country in
his week's seventh Associated
3ress ranking poll, and from the
esuits of today's balloting are
avorites to finish in that position
.vhen the final votes are cast next
.veek. Yet there still are three
earns—similarly undefeated and un
ied—which stand some slight
hance of beating them out.
Minnesota, on top for the third
straight week, got 88 of' the 170
iirst-place votes this time (only
:wo of the country’s experts rated
.hem worse than fourth) to accu
nulate l.obJ points. Only 448
points, however, separate the Go
phers from fourth-place Boston col
ege, with Texas A. anil M. and
Stanford second and third with
1,470 and 1,2G4 points, respectively.
All three of these teams com
plete their regular schedules this
week—the Aggies against Texas on
Thursday in a game where victory
will make them the first team to
lead the Southwest conference for
two straight years; Stanford against
California Saturday, the big one the
Indians need for undisputed claim
to the coast conference title and
the Rose Bowl nomination, and
Boston against Holy Cross the
same afternoon, a game which will
find the Eagles heavily favored to
finish with a clean slate and then
get a Sugar Bowl invitation.
This week’s first ten has a
strong mid-western tinge and is
likely to retain that to the end.
In addition to Minnesota, there is
Michigan, one of the Gophers’ two
extra-point victims, in fifth place;
Northwestern, beaten twice but a
big winner over Notre Dame in its
finale, seventh, and Nebraska, the
Big Six champion, eighth.
Rounding out the list are sixth
place Tennessee, which will be
favored to complete three regular
seasons without defeat when it
meets Vanderbilt Saturday; George
town, ninth, and Ivy league cham
pion Penn, tenth with only two
points less than the Hoyas.
Penn broke into the select group
by its 22-20 victory over Cornell,
a feat which also dropped the Big
Red into the second ten after they
had led the poll for four weeks,
been second once and dropped to
fifth after the Dartmouth “fifth
down” game.
Wolf pack Names rehley
Most Valuable Senior
RALEIGH, Nov. 26—(£>)—'The N.
C. State Wolf pack today elected
Pat Fehley, fullback and co-cap
tain from Easton, Pa., as its most
valuable senior.
He will be given a trophy award

Fehley played in every game, de
spite a painful shoulder injury
which caused him trouble in the
last seven games.
In second place was the team’s 1

angle gingerly today while the coach

his fullbacking services
The 220-pound powerhouse, releas

ONE OF GRADUATES
Holt, High, Mclver, Day,
Shands, J. Edwards And Pitt
man Play Last Tilt
BY GLENWARB BLOMME
Eight members of the New Han
over High school football team will
be playing their final game Thurs
day afternoon when the Wildcats
meet the Oxford Orphanage eleven
at Legion stadium at 2:30 o’clock.
One member of the graduating pig
skin artists will be denied the honor
of playing beside his teammates and
sharing the cheers of the crowd for
last week Fate struck down Bobby
Edwards, end, just as he was start
ing off a local rally with a beautiful
catch of a long pass tossed by his
brother, Jennings. Bobby in the
game but a few minutes, left the
game and high school football with
a broken leg. Bobby has been on
the squad for three years and was
a regular letterman for two years.
He has done a great job this year
and has been the spearhead of the
Wildcats’ passing attack.
Wetzel Holt, end, brings to a close
three years of varsity ball and dur
ing his high school career has play
ed guard and end in excellent style.
Although not receiving many passes
Wetzel has been a fine blocker and
an outstanding end on defense. He
did outstanding work in the Golds
boro and Fayetteville games, block
ing an important punt in the former
game, which led to a touchdown.
Jack High, end, has been a letter
man for the past two years and al
though light for a flankman he has
backed away from no job given him
to do. A good receiver, Jack has been
the main ball carrier on end around
plays used by the Wildcats this sea
son. His defensive work has been
outstanding all season.
Cliftord Mciver, center, nas oeen
almost a sixty minute player during
most of his three years on the team
and little yardage has been marked
up through his position. His of
fensive work, especially his passes to
the backs, has been flawless this sea
son and when the 'Cat backs were
shoved over their goal line and forc
ed to kick out Clifford always came
through with a perfect pass from
center. One of his outs^nding feats
was in the Raleigh game this year,
when he stopped a Hurricane back
inches from the goal and suffered an
eye injury. Clifford also stopped the
rush of the Fayetteville backs
through his post when on the six
inch line.
In Fred Day New Hanover High
loses perhaps the finest guard to
wear the Orange and Black since
Ed Cunningham graduated several
years back. Fred transferred to the
Wildcats from Winston-Salem two
years ago and has served on the
varsity in the guard position steadily
ever since. Not only is Fred a fine
offensive man, but there have been
few tackles in which he did not fig
ure in one way or another. His fine
spirit of sportsmanship and co-op
eration with players and coaches
alike has been the highlight of the
locals’ season.
Elvertcn Shands, back, hangs up
his equipment after serving two
years on the varsity. Playing for the
first time last year "Curly” stole
the show- on several occasions with
his touchdown sprints around the
end to give the AVildcats a margin
of victory. Suffering from leg and
knee injuries this year Shands has
been held down somewhat in yard
age, but his pass receiving and left
footed booting has helped the locals'
cause considerably. His outstanding
performance this year was in the
Fayetteville and Goldsboro games. In
the former contest his homing punts
shoved the Highlanders back on their
heels more than once w-hen they were
deep in AVildcat territory. In the
Goldsboro game "Curly" scored two
touchdowns on a long pass in the
end zone and an interception.
The little man of the backfield.
Jennings Edwards, 143 pounds, came
into his own this year and did every
thing a back should do except kick
and once in a while he tried his
hand at punting also. A fine field
general, Jennings developed into the
finest passer on the squad and his
shots to his brother Bobby and to
Shands w-ere something to write
about. His work in the Goldsboro
ana Fayetteville games ana nis pass
ing in the Raleigh game which put
the locals back into the game at
the half was the highlight of his
career. In the Goldsboro game he
had an average of 10 yards per pass
and added 70 yards to the local total.
In the Fayetteville game Jennings
and Horton bore the brunt of the
Wildcat running attack.
Billy Pittman, fullback, leaves the
Wildcat camp after 3 years of fine
play. Two years in the line, Pittman
was shifted to the backfield after the
season was well underway and did
excellent work until a nose injury
removed him from the lineup. At
the time of his injury Billy was
leading the local backs in yardage

State Has Best Record
On Offense In 12 Years
RALEIGH, Nov. 26.—(TP)—The N*
C. State Wolfpack though dubbed
the “country boys" and said by
pre-season dopester.1? not to have a
chance at a good record, this sea
son racked up its best offensive
record in 12 years, in addition to
scoring in all of its nine games.
The squad’s total of 120 points
was the best since the 1928 team
ran up 216 points in 10 games.
Last year’s wolfpack accounted for
only 49. The 1928 team was coach
ed by Gus Tebell, basketball
coach at the University of Vir

retired to private practice here,
and Butch Slaughter, also now at
Virginia.
Not since 1917 had a State team

Annapolis Coach Sends iR(
ANNAPOLIS. Md„ Nov. 2G^j
Professor Swede Larson's" fife'"
board bears three words 0t
struction to his 88 gridiron pa*
for the annual Army-Navy
classic Saturday at Philadelph
“Navy must win.”
And his students had better -
flunk their final test of the th ;
term, because head Cor.ehV'-,
is sending “report cards” Z':
to ma and pa.
It's a novel measure, but bvt
means punitive. Navv's genial'r
skin prof has been mailing J?
reports about his players dim"
to their parents ever since the
season began.
Larson considers it "time «■
spent” to write parents about the
sons football •‘marks”-acadeir1'[
and physical—and about the tea,
progress, hopes and aspirations
The boys don't mind the repons
going home, because thev
times get behind in their let
writing. And. Larson says, the
parents are pleased with" the
ports, too.
Report No. 9. issued this week,
says pass attack and defense a»
being stressed for the Army gar3.
that right halfback Cliff Lenz'a
quarterback Bill Chip still are a*
ing, and that Jimmy Donaldson ;
varsity newcomer, may replace
Chip Saturday.
“Army has not made an impres
sive ‘paper’ record but they have
a fine squad and a team c’apabi
of inspired football,” the repor;
says. “In considering this game
and in preparation for it. nothin;
has been taken for granted.
“We know. . .it is our r-al test
and that we are to face worts;
foemen. Whatever the odds may
be—whatever the dopesters may
think—this game is a toss-up. lit
are out to win it. So is Am;.
“The team that has it on the
afternoon of November 30 will win.
That team must be Navy."
Larson began writing the repots
after receiving numerous inquiries
from parents about their sons’ foot
ball progress. He says they give
parents a “closer feeling toward
the school” and give the boys a
added incentive to work hard.
Navy’s football “school" willen:
Saturday and Professor Larson ha
written his final instructions. He;
willing to “pass” the whole class
but what goes into the final "re;
card” depends on what the mid®
do against the Cadets.

Hoping Against Rain
By SAM RAGAN
A few weeks ago Wilmington was hopefully scanning

r6St ^iS’tThat Wilmington is hard to satisfy and is wishy
about such uncontrollable things as the weather bu
J vtttbpr have old Jupe Pluve at its own beck and call
“ ha times And now is one of the times, for if the down
“nr continues there is a good chance of the Davidson
-hadel game not receiving the success it deserves.
Rains yot >eeuea
A few weeks ago rain was need
ed to take the salt out of the wa
ter Now the problem is to take
the water out of the skies and off
Legion field.
However, the weatherman has a
shade of optimism in his forecasts
that the rains should be drawing
to a close today. And this state
ment gave considerable cheer to
the football committee which gath
ered around Princess street last
night to discuss the game here Sat
urday.
Herbert Cavenaugh was pretty
optimistic about it. “I think its
a good thing the rain is coming the
first of the week,” he said, ‘ when
It does clear up folks have gotten
so tired of staying cooped up so
long that they just naturally want
to get out.”
And it’s just such psychology that
the sponsors of the annual football
game here are counting on. And
keeping their fingers crossed about
It at the same time.
Little Davey Spencer
A note from Mel Means, sports
publicity director at Davidson col
lege, last night, giving us the prob- •
able starting lineup for the Wild
cats here Saturday.
He also pointed out to us that
little Dave Spencer has been a
wheelhorse for the Wildcats all sea
son. “Against Carolina and Duke
he was as good as any of the big
boys—and against the schools our
size he simply could not be stop
ped,” Means said.
There’s little question about the
fact that Spencer is an all-around
ball player. £-> far we’ve seen him
play once this season and he was
good then. In our opinion he should
land an All-State berth this season.
