Gridiron Whiteville Legion Fails To Install Lights For Season Opener By JIGGS POWERS WHITEVILLE, Sept. 8. — The site of the Whiteville Wolfpack Mullins Auctioneer football game has been shifted, according to Athletic Director Earl Brinkley of the Local school. The contest was originally booked for the local Legion Me morial Stadium for Friday, but instead will be played in the South Carolina city, with the kick-off coming at 8 o’clock. The change in schedule was brought about, said Brinkley, because of the inability of local Legion officials to install lights at the Stadium. The local mentor has seven games slated at home this year and had depended heavily on the lighted park to carry the ’Pack grid program over in a financial way. So, when Mullins officials who have lights at their field, came up with the offer for the transfer of the game, which opens the ’47 schedule of both elevens, the local coach was quick to accept. A large crowd of Whiteville Ians are expected to follow the Blue and White to Mullins for the opener. Heavy scrimmages were on tap as the ’Pack wound up its second week of drills Friday afternoon. Intensive sessions were held in defensive work, as well as more hard work in perfecting the “T” model plays as designed by the wily Brinkley. New arrivals in the Wolfpack camp included Joe “Honey” Russ and Teboe Stevens, both of whom played with last years Hallsboro Tigers. Local fans will remember Honey as the only Tiger who was able to gain consistently against the ’Pack forward wall in the ’46 Tiger-Pack battle here. He was also the only one to advance the pigskin within the local 30 yard marker. Brinkley is trying to remodel Russ, who has played only fullback, into a quarterback. Brink thinks the cool-headed Hallsboro lad has the makings of such, an im portant man in the tricky “T” formations. Stevens is fast and shifty and may fill one of the rnd spots or may be used in the backfield occassionally. Both are most welcome additions j° Wolfpack squad, hit hard - graduation, and brighten the dances of the Whiteville Class ‘^'1 enfry considerably. The Pack mentor stated that "o men for every position would 5° carried as varsity members, Jhh the remainder classed as layers on the Junior Varsity quad. However, he said that any ■une a member of the “B” eleven “°'ved enough improvement to * Promoted to th<e varsity, he *ould be given such.

His JV’s open their calendar with Bladenboro here, September 18. Running on the first team Fri day were Jack Vereen, Co.cap tain Joe Inman, and Kenneth Walters, at the ends; Co-captain Calvin Smith, Sonny Callihan, and John Hasty, at tackles; Bil ly Memory and Billy Davis, at guards; and James Garrell; while in the varsity backfield Russ and Inman alternated at quarter; Bill Ellis, Eldred Wil liamson, and Stevens at halves; and big Bob West at Full. Outstanding were little Ellis, who broke away for several runs, and hard driving West, who is out to force local fans to forget last years great Billy Cook. GIANT OUTBURST WRECKS PIRATES PITTSBURGH, Sept. 8.—In coming from behind an 8-0 count, the New York Giants broke loose with seven runs in the eighth inning today and then defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates, 10-8, on Lloyd Gearhart’s two run homer in the ninth. A paid crowd of 3,936 fans saw veteran Fritz Ostermueller pitch no-hit ball for five innings and two-hit ball for seven before the Giants blasted him off the mound with a five-hit attack good for as many runs. After Jim Bagby relieved Os termueller with men on first and second and two out, the Pirate reliefer committed a balk ad vancing both runners. Pinch hitter Joe Lafata drove them home with a single. Gearhart’s winning four-bag ger came after Bill Rigney had doubled off Bagby in the final frame. The pirates roughed up Shel don Jones, Joe Beggs and Andy Hansen for seven of their nine hits and all of their runs but couldn’t score in the last two innings on fireman Ken Trinkle who received credit for his seventh victory. Bagby was charged with his fourth loss.

Pritchard was unable to take part \ in Saturday’s sessions. Expressing himself as fairly well satisfied with the scrim mage, Coach Carl Snavely said the squad was still a long way from being ready for the big time opener with Georgia’s Bulldogs here Sept. 27. “They looked pretty good and we are pleased with the improvement in passing, also with the way some of the new boys showed up,” he said, “but we have a lot to do before meeting a team like Georgia.” Two drills daily will be con tinued this week and on up un til the fall college session opens a few days before the game with Georgia.

WADE MOVES NO. 2 TEAM TO VARSITY # * —— DURHAM, Sept. 8—( AP)— As a result of Saturday’s scrim mage when the second team turned in a five touchdown to one triumph over the first team, Coach Wallace Wade changed the names of the two outfits as Duke started the sec ond week of fall drills and prep arations for their Sept. 27, sea son opener with N. C. State here today. With Saturday’s first team now the no. 2 outfit, the first club is composed of Fred Hard son, a tackle last season, and Bill Duncan 1946 reserve, at ends; Louis Allen, 1946 starter, and Lloyd Isenberg, who played here in 1944 and returned from the service this spring at tack les; Bill Davis, a sub last year, and Ted Marshall, Jayvee in 1946, at guards; and Carl Perk inson, 1946 sub, at center. In the backfield are Red Fol ger, Jr., ..who has been one of . the outstanding backs in fall drills and who was a letterman last year, at wingback; Ben Williams, reserve last season, at fullback; Rollo Hodges, another 1946 letterman, a tail back; and Jack Eslick, sub blocking back last season, at that post.

Stranahan Wins First Round Of Amateur Golf Tourney PEBBLE BEACH, Calif., Sept. 8 — UP) — Tournament favorite Frank Stranahan of Toledo, Ohio, whipped famed Pebble Beach course with two under par golf today to charge through the first round of the U. S. Amateur Championship with a 7 and 6 win over Douglas W. Bajus of Van couver, B. C. The straight-hitting amateur star, who has played the big professionals on even terms in open tournaments around the country, took the first hole from his opponent and built up the lead from then on. His 34 for the first nine of the heavily traped layout was two under standard requirements. He was 5 up at the turn, Bajus taking a 39. Stranahan fired par fours at his rival to bag the 10th and 11th and closed out the match with a par 3 on the 12th. The Toledo entry’s birdie fours on the 480 yard second and the 502 yard fifth were made in flawless fashion. He dodged trouble all the way. Farmer Champion Johnny Goodman, of Omaha, back in the big league competition he domi nated in 1937, came through his initial test with a 3 and 2 win over Herbert P. Smith of Orlan Football Dodgers Trade Dobbs For Hoemschemeyer BROOKLYN, Sept. 8. — W— The Brooklyn Dodgers of the All-America Football Conference, today traded Glenn Dobbs, vot ed the loop’s most outstanding player last year, to the Los An geles Dons in a three-cornered deal that brought Angelo Bertel li to the Chicago Rockets and Robert (Hunchy) Hoernschemey er to the Dodgers. All are backfield standouts. No cash was involved in the deal, Brooklyn officials said. Dobbs will leave immediately to join his new mates and Hoern schemeyer will practice with the Dodgers tomorrow in their prep arations for Friday night’s game in Ebbets Field with Cleveland. Dobbs, former Tulsa Universe ity All-America player in 1942, received 41 1-2 votes out of a possible 42 this winter in the balloting for the most valuable award. 78-Yard Punt He established a conference record last year with a 78-yard WALKER HAS EDGE ON BATTING TITLE NEW YORK, Sept. 8 —W— j Harry Walker of the Philadel phia Phils virtually removed all doubt during the past seven days as to the identity of the National League’s 1947 batting champion by adding two points to his total for a 36-point lead over his near est rival. Walker, younger brother ot Brooklyn’s more widely known Dixie, "belted out nine hits in the 22 times at bat in the week that ended Sunday and moved his season’s average from 354 to .356. Meanwhile, Phil Cavar retta of the Chicago Cubs re mained at .320 to permit Walker to increase his advantage. The National League schedule has only three more weeks to go, virtually assuring Walker of the title Stan Musial of the St. Louis Cardinals took last year with .365. Dixie Walker won the crown in 1944 with .357 and should Harry remain on top the Walkers become the first brother team to win the honor. Galan Third Augie Galan of Cincinnati, is third with a .319 aggregate and is followed by Pete Reiser of Brooklyn, with .316; Walker Cooper of New York, .314; Bob Elliott of Boston, .310; Tommy Holmes of Boston Ralph Kiner of Pittsburgh and Dixie Walker, all at .308; and Frankie Gustine of Pittsburgh, .307. The Philadelphia Wralker leads the league in hits with 172 and in triples ivith 16. The Brooklyn half of the family tops the cir cuit in doubles with 30. Johnny Mize’s 46 home runs gives him a bulge of, five over Kiner. The New York first base man also heads the circuit in runs with 119 and run* batted in with 123. Jackie Robinson of Brooklyn, has an almost two-to one ration in stolen bases over his closest rival. The Dodger first baseman has pilfered 24, compared with 13 for Johnny Hopp of Boston. Jansen Leads Pitcher' Larry Jansen, rookie right handed pitcher with the New York Giants, continues to top the pitchers on a won and lost basis with a .773 average, built up on 17 victories and five de feats. Ewell Blackwell of Cin cinnati, ranks second with 21-7 but commands the strike out wizards with 185 as compared with Ralph Branca’s 128 in Brooklyn’s cause. BONHAM FINED PITTSBURGH, Sept. 8. —W— The Pittsburgh Pirates today re ported that Pitcher Ernie Bon ham h«d been fined $50 by Na tional League President Ford Frick for unnecessarily delaying for 10 minutes Saturday’s game here with the Chicago Cubs. Frick said Bonham was slow in leaving the game after being ordered out by Manager Billy Herman in, the third inning. The Pirates won 7-6 in 10 innings. I punt and also set another mark when he completed 23 passes in a game against the San Fran cisco 49’ers. Bertelli starred at Notre Dame and signed with ■ the Dons dur ing the war. A few days later he signed another pact, this one with the Boston Yanks of the Na tional Football League. In the subsequent court battle Bertel li was awarded to the All-Amer ica club. Hoernschemeyer played for both Indiana University and the Naval Academy during the war and was the directing general of the Rockets in their two games this year. Cliff Battles, coach of the Dod gers, said “that I know I am giv ing up an edge in kicking by trading Dobbs but Hunchy will give us a superior field general. Dobbs made several strategical mistakes this fall. In addition, Hoernschemeyer is five years younger than Dobbs.” GEORGIA, CAROLINA CONTEST SOLD OUT CHAPEL HILL, Sept. 8.— (PAL)—The “sold out” sign today was hung on the North Carolina - Georgia game here Sept. 27, with Vernon Crook, athletic association office manager, announcing that no more tickets of any kind are available.

This in cludes Wake Forest, Oct. 11, Tennessee, Nov. 1; N. C. State (homecoming), Nov. 8; and Virginia, Nov. 29. Ad vance sales for all home games have been the great est in university history and other sellouts are anticipated. The sellout for the Georgia game means also that no more season tickets are available and any future ord ers will have to be returned. williamsMl LEADS AMERICAN CHICAGO, Sept. 8. — W — j Boston’s Ted Williams slipped j three percentage points last I week, but his .337 kept the Red Sox thumper 10 points ahead of the field in the American’ League batting race. Williams actually gained a point as runner-up Dale Mitch ell of Cleveland dropped four points to .327. Ted collected nine hits in 30 trips during the week, while Mitchell banged 11 in 39 appearances. Biggest hitting thunder of the week came from the bat of Chi cago’s Taffy Wright, who climb ed 10 points to third spot with .325 as he cracked out 12 bingles in 27 chances. Joe Di Maggto of New York and Barney McCoskey of Phil adelphia improved seven and nine' points respectively to tie for fourth place with .322 each.

Williams continued to monop olize the specialized department, slamming two homers for a bag of 29; swelling his RBI total to 94 with five more; and scoring seven runs for a 110 aggregate. Pesky kept the lead in hits with 177, while other unchanged leaders were Boudreau in doubles, 43; Micky Vernon of Washington in triples, 12; and Bob Dillinger of St. Louis in stolen bases, 29. ! do, Fla. Goodman’s golf was not comparable to that he flashed here 18 years ago when he sidelined the great Bobby Jones in the first round, but he held Smith even on the outgoing nine with a 39 and putted himself into the lead coming home. The first big upset of the open ing round saw Bob Cochran of Overland, Mo., outlast Arthur Armstrong of Honolulu to win 1 up on the 20th hole. The lad from Hawaii, several times amateur and open territorial champion, led more than 2,000 players in the national qualifying for the 1947 championship, shoot ing a 36-hole 136. He ran into a sleeper, how ever, in Cochran, one of the top amateurs of Missouri. Cochran posted a par 36 to grab a one nu lead at the ninth, Armstrong carding 37. The Honolulu entry evened it on the tenth, lost the 12th and 13th and squared the match with wins on the 15th and 16th. -They had scores of 75 for the eighteen. Crochran, former St. Louis open and Missouri state winner dropped a 15-footer on the second extra hole for a birdie and the victory. Armstrong barely missed his putt from 17 feet.

The hot tomale from the coast. | owner of a searing service and a deadly stop-volley that baffled Mulloy, once stood at 4-2 in games in the deciding set and 1 again .was ..within one point of I making it 5-3, on his own service, j Only Mulloy’s cool head and vast i experience finally pulled him but I ox a nasty situation. The scores were 6-3, 6-3, 2-6, 9-11, 6-4. And then Gonzales began to play a brand of slashing, net rushing, tennis that no one knew he possessed. By the time he had reeled off the third set and then squared the match by winning the long-drawn fourth, practi cally all the several thousand spectators on the premises had jammed themselves into the sec ondary grandstands where the match was being played Jo watch j Pancho make his bid.

Peni cillin warded off infection when an abscess threatened at an injection spot, and sulfa drugs and strepto mycin guarded her against other diseases. As she passed her birthday, how ever, Tina was taking a milk for mula, a cereal, eat, vegetables and fruit. “She’ll be smaller than other babies for a couple of years,” Mrs. Soifer said, “and after that we’ll expect her to" catch up.” Comb or coomb was on old Brit ish corn measure, containing four bushels. In many localities hol lows or valleys among the hills are called “comb” or “coombs.” - - “Cushman” 209 Market St. Olal 2-3224 I WICKER DOLL CARRIAGES C hampion Distributing to. 118 MARKET ST.
