:F5.rst Conference Contest
Slated Here Friday Night
Brogden Sends Charges Through Strenous
Workouts On 13th And Ann Streets Field;
Both Squads In Good Condition
The grim faced youngsters of the New Hanover High
school Wildcats were sent through some strenous work
outs on the 13th and Ann street drill field yesterday after
noon.
The ’Cats, still smarting from the 7-6 defeat handed
them last Friday night by the Charleston Cooper River
Blue Devils, are determined to break into the win column
when they tangle with the highly touted Rocky Mount
Blackbirds at Legion Stadium Friday night at 8 o’clock.
The Rocky Mount contest is the first conference game
TAR HEELS DRILL
UNTIL NIGHTFALL
CHAPEL HILL, Oct. 1. — OT
— With blocking back Joe Wright
apd center A1 Bernot still on the
sick list aqd doubts existing that
they would be able to make the
trip to Austin, Carolina’s Tar
Heels worked until darkness this
afternoon putting in some of their
last licks for the Texas invasion.
Co-captain Wright, suffering
with a reaction from penicillin,
was some better today but was
unable to work. Bernot was in
light togs on the sidelines. Don
Hartig, who alternated with
Wright last year, will start
against Texas if the Asheville
boy is unable to play.
Coach Carl Snavely sent his top
teams through a dummy scrim
mage and worked the lower units
late m a full scrimmage to help
determine the personnel of his
traveling squad. He was still un
decided tonight on the exact
group which will leave by plane
from the Raleigh-Durham air
port Friday morning.
for the Brogden Boys and from
all indications the Wildcats are
making all possible preparations
to start the conference wars off
with a victory.
Last year the locals managed
to eke out a 6 to 0 victory over
the ’Birds in a hard foo.ght bat
tle. Both clubs are reported to
be in good condition for the
scrap and a bang up gridiron
tussle has been forecast.
Yesterday afternoon the field
was full of players and the air
wa6 full of footballs as the
coaches ran their charges through
all the plays in the book. Scrim
mage, passing, punting, T form
ation drills and other tactics
employed on the g idiron were
given to the lads.
Another sham battle is slated
for this afternoon as the Wild
cat coaches strive to whip the
squad into tip top condition for
the all important conference bat
tle.
The Blackbirds, under the
crafty coaching of E. E. Adkins,
are expected to operate from
the single-wing and short punt
formation. With this in mind
Brogden has been spending a
lot of time devising a method of
stopping the Blackbirds.
Coach Overman Has Light,
But Fast Team At Wallace
BY JOHN SIKES
WALLACE, Oct. 1 — During
this particular tour of duty I’m
J supposed to keep you informed
; about the goings on of the Wal
lace Tobacco Market, which I
believe to be a sort of promised
! land for farmers who’re looking
for the well-known and cliched
top or high dollar for their to
bacco.
But I think it’s about time
j somebody was telling you about
| the Wallace High School football
jteam.
So-o-o-o, here you are: To'be
( gin with most of the boys who’d
ordinarily go out for football
and other sports around here
begin almost from the cradle in
the fairly important life busi
ness of making a living. Don’t
get me wrong. I do not mean
that these boys don’t have the
same cracks at extra-curricular
activities as the boys in Wil
mington, say, do. I do mean,
though, that a good many of
them start out pretty young to
learn all about how to make
good tobacco, cucumbers, corn,
and a lot of other such items
that grow on farms.
You see, Wallace, with a pop
ulation of around 1,500, is es
sentially and primarily a far
mer’s town. It is, in fact, one
of the best farmer’s towns any
where in the State from the
standpoint of outlets for agricul
tural products and as a trading
center. Therefore, Wallace High
school draws a great many of
its students from the surround
ing farm area. And a good
many of these students, natural
ly, have a lot of farm and other
chores to perform. They can’t
give their completely undivided
attention to football and such
matters.
Even so, the boys here, under
the tutelage of Coach Thell Ov
erman, a former Guilford Col
lege star who did post-graduate
work at Carolina and picked up
a lot of coaching know-how from
that Old Gray Fox, Carl Snave
ley, have been impressive in
their first two starts this year.
They scored a total of 67 points
to nary a one for two opponents.
They licked Jacksonville 27 to
0 in their first start and they
smashed Warsaw last Friday 40
to 0 .
Soaking wet—but without any
thing on but their birthday suits
—the first team fielded by
Coach Overman weighs in at an
average of 147 pounds. That’s
pretty light in the football busi
ness. These youngsters, howev
er, make up for their lack of
avordupois with speed and alert
ness.
Coach Overman has taught
himself a pretty good quartet of
starting backs in Casey, James,
Carlton, and Herring. Herring,
Jimmy, that is, has developed
into a toe artist when it comes
getting that extra point after a
touchdown. In 10 tries this year
he’s booted points eight times.
The line is lighter than it pos
sibly should be but the boys
hanging on to the teachings of
Coach Overman, are rapidly
learning the tricks of blocking
and so far they’ve used these
tricks well. What they’ll do
when they come up against
stronger opposition is something
else again. But they haven’t
given cause to complain up to
now. In the line are Roger Ack
erman at right end, Max Morri
son at right tackle, Co-Captain
Max Sikes at right guard, M.
B. Pope, center, Jimmy Powell,
left guard, Thomas Townsend
left tackle, and Charles Carr at
left end. Coach Overman has a
high regard, too. for Earl Jones,
his tackle replacement who’s
seen about as much service as
Morrison and Townsend In the
line.
Next Friday the boys take on
Mt. Olive there in an Eastern
Central Conference game, Wal
lace being one of the eight
teams in that conference. The
big game of the season will be
played in Wallace against Clin
ton Oct. 10.
Other games on the local
schedule this year are La
Grange, there, Oct. 17; Burgaw,
there, Oct. 24; Selma, here. Oct.
31; Ayden, there, Nov. 7; Farm
ville, here, Nov. 14; Steadman,
Nov. 21.

mately 600,000.000 pounds of

Deamon Deacons Work
On Offensive Drives
WAKE FOREST, Oct. 1.—(/P)—
Coach D. C. Walker, still work
ing to instill more offensive
drive into his Wake Forest De
mon Dee cons in preparation for
meeting Clemson Saturday, was
encouraged today by the running
of two substitute backs.
In the offensive drills that
took most of the practice time
today, Bill Gregus, freshman
tailback, and Carl Haggard,
wingback, managed to get
through for a number of long
gains. George Prior, the number
one fullback, also made a num
ber of nice gains.
The Deacons suffered two
other injuries during a bruising
scrimmage yesterday. Center
Harry Clark worked today in
light equipment and tackle Ed
Royston missed the practice.
Both are expected to be in shape
for Clemson, however.
Clemson Tigers Drill
For Wake Forest Tilt
CLEMSON, Oct. 1. — WP) —
Coach Frank Howard sent the
Clemson Tigers through heavy
defensive drills here today in
preparation for Saturday’s en
counter with Wake Forest.
Chick Gainer, Tiger tackle,,
and left guard Frank Gillespie
were line standouts in today’s
drill, while Bobby Gage turned
in a good performance both in
defensively and offensively in
the backfield.
Fullback Jim Reynolds side
stepped rough work today due
to bruises received in yesterday’s
drill.
AUSSIE NET TEAM
UNHAPPY IN U. S.
SYDNEY, Australia, Oct. 2. —
(U.R) — Australian singles cham
pion Dinny Pails arrived home
from the United States by air
today and tossed a bombshell into
international tennis circles by
charging that the Australian
Davis cup team was “torn by
quarrels and ill feeling.” When
it lost to the United States in
the challenge round.
Pails, curly-haired star who lost
two singles matches as the U. S.
defeated Australia, four matches
to one, specifically accused team
mates Jack Bromwich and Geof
frey Brown of “not pulling their
weight at any time during the
tour.”
“This matter has got to come
out,” shid Pails. “There’s no good
saying in our side must have
been reflected in our play, for
we were an unhappy band from
start to finish.
“Bromwich and Brown had to
be kidded into attending official

wouldn’t cooperate at all and you
could say that they were down
right unfriendly.”
