DEACON COACHES
I GROOMING BACKS
WAKE FOREST, Sept. 24. —
Wake Forest football coaches
ar* grooming their two super
duper blocking backs, Nick Og
novich and Don Hipps, for sev
eral important assignments in
their big intersectional opener
with Georgetown here Saturday
night at 8 o’clock in Groves
Stadium.
- These unsung heroes of the
~~bifi Deacon backfield are not
~only top-notch blockers. They do
-a number of other things and do
•them all well.
For instance Ognovicn ana
Hipps are both excellent pass
receivers and are likely to play
a big part in the shaping of
Wake Forest’s aerial attack tms
season. Both have the knack of
plucking the ball out of the air
on the dead run and they can
' catch well from a stationery po
sition, too. They are a part of
the best collection of pass re
ceivers ever to represent the
Baptists.
In addition to being standouts
on defense backing up the line,
Ognovich and Hipps are also
setting the pace on roles of ex
-tra point kickers. In the daily
drills they are being called on
most frequently for the point
after-touchdown conversions and
~ they are hitting the mark with
an amazing degree of consisten
cy.
In one drill Ognovich hit 25
out of 25 which in baseball lingo
is the perfect batting average.
Of course, kicking under game
pressure is an altogether differ
„ ent story but these two backs
...—s Ve promise of making worthy
'^accessors to Otis (Bo) Sacrm
■ty, leading extra point booter of
the past two seasons, aa
crinity wound up his career in
a blaze of glory by booting all
five extra points in the 35-0 win
over South Carolina
Thus, Ognovich and Hipps not
only perform their principal as
“7 signments of blocking well. They
go several steps further and do
each task well.__

CHAPEL HILL, Sept. 24. —(ff)
— Despite a cold rain, Carolina’s
Tar Heels stayed outdoors and
worked hard this afternoon in
putting in some of their final
preparations for the spectacular
season’s opener with Georgia
here Saturday at 2:30 which will
pack a sellout crowd of 42,500.
Hosea Rodgers emulated Geor
gia’s brilliant Johnny Rauch in
throwing passes from the quar
terback position while the first
and second Tar Heel teams tried
to break them up, sometimes with
not too much success. The Tar
Heels rehearsed their own pass
ing attack, too, and polished up
running plays.
Meanwhile university athletic
association officials issued a com
munique, requesting that persons
without tickets stay away Sat
urday. The only tickets to be
sold at the gate are 500 to Ne
groes and these will be put on
sale at gate 10 at noon.
It was pointed out that traf
fic approaching from the East
should use the Navy field for
parking entrance to this field is
by way of the institute of gov
ernment barracks at the East
end of the intramural field.
Traffic approaching from the
West should use the high school
grounds and Fetzer field for
parking entrance to Fetzer field
is just East of Woollen gymna
sium. Chapel Hill residents and
students have been requested to
leave their cars at home in order
to make more room for out of
town traffic.

CINCINNATI WINS
TO COP 5TH SPOT
CINCINNATI, Sept. 24.—W
Grady Hatton, first up in the
ninth for Cincinnati, banged the
ball over the right field fence to
give the Reds a 6 to 5 victory
over Chicago today and clinch
fifth place in the National Lea
gue for the Redlegs.
In the Chicago half of the
ninth, Kent Peterson, the Reds’
freshman southpaw, entered the
game with none out, the bases
full of Cubs and retired the side
without a run being scored, for
one of the best relief pitching
jobs seen here this season.
Ken Raffesnberger started for
Cincinnati but was knocked out
of the box in the first frame when
four hits netted four runs for
Chicago. The Reds got two of
them back in their half of the
first and added another in the
fourth. The Cubs pulled away in
the eighth with a run, but the
Reds tied it with two counters
in the same frame. Then came
the sensational ninth.
It was the last game of th' sea
son in Cincinnati and the 1,947
fans who saw it boosted the
home attendance for the season
to 900,024. The total paid at
tendance last year was 715,751.

I Duke And N. C. State Tilt
Looms As “Grudge Battle”
DURHAM, Sept. 24—As game
time comes nearer and nearer it
is beginning to appear more and
more that the Southern Confer
ence headlining football clash be
tween Duke and N. C. State in
Duke stadium here Saturday
will be a “grudge battle”.
The two teams apparently are
paying no attention at all to the
importance of the game in South
ern Conference and national
circles but are simple going about
their respective drills with a
single thought in mind: “Vic
tory.”
CO-CAPTAINS ELECTED
—<7P)—Wake Forest’s Demon
Deacons today elected two
hefty linemen as their co
captains for the 1947 sea
son, Ed Royston, 210-pound
senior tackle from Baltimore,
Md., and Harry Clark, 200
pound Wadesboro center.
Both Royston and Clark
played for the Deacons in
1942 before entering military
service and both played
prominent parts in the
sturdy forward wall that
the Wake Forest fielded last
season.
According to what can be
heard in Durham, the State play
ers have heard that Duke regard
ed their upset victory last year
as a fluke and they have a battle
cry that goes: “Show Duke Last
Year's Win Was No Fluke.”
Now, wherever the Wolves got
their information, it is entirely
erroneous according to the peo
ple at Duke. They made no com
ment after that game except that
State deserved to win and they
have no comment since that
State’s win last season was a
fluke. It has been a tradition at
Duke to “Win without a boast and
lose without an alibi.”
But fluke or no fluke, upset
last year or no upset, every stone
has been turned, every plan made,
and every attention directed in
the Duke camp this fall toward
that opener with N. C. State and
the Blue Devils Saturday will
make every effort to get revenge
for that stunning loss which start
ed them down that long, hard
road that was the 1946 season.
Of course, the Blue Devils
realize that the State club they
are facing Saturday will be a
better outfit than the one they
lost to last year, but the Wade
men also think they are be,'or
than they were last year and
hope they are enough better to
do the job they are so anxious
to do against State.
There is one thing that the fans
will see Saturday. They will see
two teams fired up to the peak
and rankled over the comment
that has followed last year’s
game. This promises to result in
one of the finest and most thrill
ing opening ball games ever seen
in the Southern Conference.
The crowd is expected to hit
40,000 but there are still tickets
available for the clash.
TABOR CITY MAN
WINS SERIES TRIP
BY GLENN D. KITTLER
NORFOLK, Va., Sept. 24. —
Benjamin V. Benton, 25, of the
Guideway section near Tabor
City became the luckiest fellow
in the United States Navy when
he was chosen today as one of
the two men aboard the aircraft
carrier U. S. S. Midway to take
an all-expenses-paid trip to at
tend the world series in New
York.
His selection climaxed an elec
tion among the crew of the Mid
way, berthed in the Norfolk Naval
yards, to find the men “of great
est value to his ship and his ship
mates.” Each of the ship’s 31
divisions chose its outstanding
worker and all names were plac
ed in a bowl.
At a special rally this morn
ing, Chaplain W. A. Mahler drew
two names from the 31 to select
the two men who will see the
series with expenses paid from
the Midway’s welfare fund. Ben
ton and John T. Harding, of
Philadelphia, were the winners.
As guests of the crew and Capt.
A. K. Morehouse, commander of
the Midway, the two men will
leave for New York Monday
where they will remain for three I
games. Their New York host will'
be Columnist Ed Sulivan who
has arranged a tour of Manhat
tan’s bright spots for them, as
well as acommodations at one
of the city’s finest hotels.
Benton, the son of Mr. and
Mrs. Martie Benton, Route 3,
Tabor City, joined the Midway
crew in January, this year. Ed
ucated at the Guideway schools,
Benton was home on furlough
a month ago.

FISHING BOATS GET
MORE DOCKING SPACE
The fishing boat dockage short
age at Southport during the Fall
Fishing Rodeo will be alleviated

will be open to private and pro
fessional deep-sea boats from
then until October 31, the end
of the Rodeo, unless govern
ment vessels should need it be
forehand.
The dock is large enough to
accommodate about a dozen av

Coach Brogden Points Out
Mistakes On Blackboard
Rain, rain, and rain with wind
yesterday caused the New Han
over Wildcats to drill indoors for
the second consecutive day. But,
today, Coach Brogden, hopes
will be fair and he will «-°nd
the local gridders through a
lengthy workout in preparation
for tomorrow nights clash with
the Cooper River Blue Devils of
Charleston.
The game is slated for Legion
Stadium Friday night at 8 o'clock.
Arrangements have been made by
the Junior Chamber of Com
merce to stage a gala pre-game
parade Friday afternoon through
the downtown streets of the city.
The ROTC and high school bands
will parade west on Market
street to Front, north on Front
to Red Cross and east on Red
Cross to Third. The procession
will end at the Post Office with
a big rally.
Yesterday coach Brogden sent
his charges through several
blackboard drills and he point
ed out the mistakes the ’Cats
made at Norfolk last Friday night
when Maury high held them to
a 0 to 0 deadlock.
Brogden was not at all satis
fied with the team’s performance
in the Virginia city and has been
pointing out mistakes during the
indoor sessions.
The Cooper River squad has
also been suffering from lack of
outdoor workouts, Coach Bob
Clark said yesterday. The
Charleston coach was careful not
to make any predictions of the
outcome of the game. But had
Draise for his backfield. He said
his starting backfield was much
stronger than last year’s.
The Wilmington line will out
weigh the Charleston barrier by
about one pound per man on the
average, but the Wildcat’s will
have a big advantage in the back
field.
Five members of the NHHS
squad were on the injured list
yesterday, but the quintet is
expected to be back in harness in
time for the whistle. Nursing
injuries are Piggy Gore, Doc
Venters, Jim Gibson, Lloyd
Honeycutt and Charles Smith.
