What’s Cookin’
By Roy Cook
The New Hanover Wildlife club, through Secretary
John B. Funderburg, has announced that Art Nuss, na
tionally known bait and fly casting champion, will present
a three-part program of “Fishing,” at the Community
Center Thursday, Oct. 30, at 7:30 o’clock.
Art Nuss is one of the finest trick and accuracy cast
ers in the nation and his feats with a fly and baitcasting
rod have amazed thousands of sportsmen all over the East.
He is a noted instructor and authority on stream and lake
fishing and has made a life study of what equipment the
fisherman should have, and how to use it to catch fish.
His methods simplify the art of plug and flycasting through
the knowledge of the proper combination of rod. reel and
line.
Nuss will open the program with a short talk on “Fish
ing—The All American Sport.” His talk will be followed
by the showing of a thrilling motion picture, “Sport Fish
ing." Nuss will give running comments and explanations
0f the picture.
An interesting demonstration of the science of bait
casting and flycasting will then be given by Art Nuss.
Art will show the correct way to grip the fishing pole
while casting. The wrong way to cast and how to correct
faults with tutious type casts. He will also demonstrate
how special types of casts are made, and how to get a plug
ont nf t,1p Wlth heavv brush and other obstacles alon*
the shore and how to overcome other protdems that con'
front the average fisherman in the course of a day’s fish
ing.
Following the demonstration and trick casting exhibi
tion Nuss will answer questions from the audience.
This is a swell opportunity for fishermen to “brush
up on their angling skills. John Funderburg, secretary
of the local Wildlife club, said the meeting will be open to
the public and issued an invitation to all interested persons
to attend.

STATE JUNIORS
DEFEAT DUKE 6-0
RALEIGH, Oct. 24—W—For
all appearances it looked like a
repeat performance of the Duke
7-0 victory over N. C. State col
lege as North Carolina defeated
State, 6-0, he^e today in a foot
ball game between junior varsity
teams.
The rivals battled on almost
even terms for three quarters,
and an exchange of punts left
State in possession of the ball at
midfield to set up the scoring pic
ture.
Tailback George Pickett, of
Raleigh, went back to pass on
first down, but he was rushed
badly by a swarm of North Car
olina linemen.
Pickett, standing on the State
40, tried to pass, but the ball
fell into the arms of North Caro
lina center Billy Baise, also of
Raleigh. Billy had a clear patch
goalward/ Bob Reynolds’ place
ment for point after touchdown
was wide.
N. C. State and Duke oattled
along the same lines in the sea
son opener, only to have Duke’s
tackle Louis Allen intercept a
pass by back Footsie Palmer, and
run for the only score of the
game.
Today's game featured the run
ning of North Carolina’s Dick
Bunting and Gus Purcell and the
punting and passing of State's
Roland Eveland and Bob Young
blood.
STUD ”S CASE I
SET FOR NOV. 6
RICHMOND, Va., Oct. 24 —
(to—Judge Julien Gunn, of Rich
mond Circuit court today set
November 6 as the date to hear
the controversial case of Ver
non Morgan, 18-year-old Univer
sity of Richmond student who
has been declared ineligible to
take part in Southern Confer
ence football games.
The date was set over the
protests of Morgan’s attorney,
John J. Wicker, Jr., who asked
for an immediate hearing of his
request for a declaratory judg
ment against the conference.
Defense counsel Nelson T.
Parker asked for a continuance
on the grounds that he had not
been given an opportunity to
file an answer to the petition.
Morgan charges that the
Southern Conference declared
him ineligible because he
signed a professional baseball
contract with the New York
Giants when he was 15.
Wicker, however, contends
that the contract is null and
void since it was signed by his
father who, through court ac
tion, was not his legal guardian
and that Morgan, therefore, is
eligible to play with the Uni
versity of Richmond squad.
WILLISTON TIGERS
DEFEAT BEARS, 13-7
In one of the most exciting
games of their season, the Wil
liston Tigers last night rolled to
a 13 to 7 victory over the New
Bern Bears at the American Le
gion stadium before a handful
of fans.
The Williston TD’s came in
tthe first and fourth quarter
when Charley Nixon, LHB,
reached paydirt for a 6 to 0
score. FB Hard Rutland split
he uprighsts for the extra point.
The second marker came in
the fourth as Rutland crossed
the goal standing up. The con
version was blocked.
New Bern’s lone goal was
made by QB Little Roundtree
who received the pigskin on his
own 10 yard line and zigzagged
his jitterbug body through the
center of the line and field to
cross paydirt with the oval,
j Their attempt for the extra
looint was good.

24,600 Fans To Attend
Wake Forest, Duke Tilt
WAKE FORES, Oct. 24 —
Interest, excitement and ten
sion were at peak pitch in this
little village here tonight as
everyone anxiously awaited the
referee’s signal that will send
the undefeated Wake Forest
and Duke teams into battle in
Groves Stadium at 2 o’clock
Saturday afternoon in the big
event of a colorful Homecoming
Day program.
Approximately 24,600 fans,
the largest home crowd in
Wake Forest’s history, will fill
the stadium to overflowing to
watch these old rivals continue
their bid for State, Conference,
sectional and national honors.
General consensus among
most writers and supporters of
the two teams is that the two
powerful elevens are just about
as evenly matched as two clubs
could be. Both have big, rug
ged, and hard-hitting lines and
both have powerful and well
balanced attacks.
The game’s feature individual
duel will probably be between
Tossin’ Tom Fetzer, Wake For
est triple-threat tailback ace
and the nation’s No. 2 man in
total offense (yards gained
rushing and passing) and
Flingin’ Freddie Folger, Duke’s
gifted tri-threat tailback. Both
boys have paced every victory
of their team this season and
now they’ll match abilities
against one another.
Duke rates a substanial edge
in speed with such fast backs
as Folger, Buddy Mulligan,
George Clark, Tom Hughes,
Howard Hartley, Bettis Her
long, Roland Hodges, and Bob
Frye. Wake Forest has the ad
vantage in weight—an average
of 14 pounds in the line, 213
to Duke’s 199 and an average
of eight pounds in the backfield,
187 to 179.
Both teams need the victory
to continue their march among
the nation’s elite as well as to
enhance their bids for State and
Conference titles. Both are high
in the national picture now —
Wake Forest 11th in the coun
try in the Associated Press poll
this week and Duke 15th.
In addition to the two strong
starting elevens, both teams
are well manned with capable
reserves all down the line.
Neither appears to have any no
ticeable edge in reserve
strength. And from all reports
both teams appear to be very
much “up” for this one.

The Burgaw eleven was not
clicking as the oval was too slip

they could not make a hole in

Trojans To Clash With Bears Today And Outcome
May Determine Western Rose Bowl Representative
By JACK HAND
NEW YORK, Oct. 24 —(*—
California and Southern Califor
nia, two of the nation’s unbeat
en football elite, clash tomor
row in the most significant
game of a bulging mid-season
program that might determine
the western Rose Bowl repre
sentative.
Important games pop up all
over the nation with such pair
ings as Penn-Navy, Texas-Rice,
Michigan - Minnesota. ' Illinois
Purdue, Notre Dame-Iowa,
Wake Forest-Duke, Penn State
West Virginia and Army-Colum
bia hogging the headlines.
Despite five straight wins for
coach Lynn (Pappy) Waldorf’s
California Bears, they are
ranked as underdogs to the
strong Southern Cal Trojans
whose record is slightly marred
by a 7-7 - early-season tie with
Rice. A sellout crowd of 80,000
is due.
Michigan, ranked the No. 1
team of the nation by a wide
margin in the weekly poll of
football writers, wrestles with
once-beaten Minnesota for the
Little Brown Jug before 85,938
at Ann Arbor, Mich. Coach
i Fritz Crisler’s Wolverines have
steamrollered four opponents
and are still untested The “ex
perts” don’t think Minnesota
can make it closer than four
touchdowns.
The Illinois team that drub
bed Minnesota last week, 40-13,
expects a rugged struggle with
improving Purdue at Lafayette,
Ind. Only a 0-0 tie with Army
clouds the Illinois record. Pur
due bowed to Wisconsin and
Notre Dame but has been com
ing on strong.
Navy and Penn figure to pro
vide the most interesting con
test in the east before 78,000
at Franklin Field in Philadel
phia. With Ribs Baysinger, Jr.,
throwing passes and fullback
Bill Hawkins ripping the line,
The Middies broke a long losing
streak by submerging Cornell
last Stuarday, 38-19. Whether
this means that the Navy fi
nally has “arrived” will be de
termined by Penn, an Ivy
league powerhouse with back
field speed to spare and a
strong line. The Penn club will
be weakened by the loss of cen
ter Charley Bednarik, out with
a chest injury.
Pennsylvania also draws an
other top Eastern game at State
College, the meeting of Penn
State and West Virginia, both
unbeaten and untied. Although
state has played no top flight
clubs, there is a strong impres
sion that they rank with the
best in the East and near the
top in the National rankings.
Fullback Joe Colone is out with
injuries but Penn State has been
established a strong three
touchdown favorite.
Army’s string of 32 straight
games without a loss becomes
more difficult to carry each
week. Now they face Columbia,
an offensive-minded team that
has been bowled over by Yale
and Penn in its last two starts.
Nobody has scored on the Ca
dets since Navy came so close
to winning last fall.
Notre Dame, the No. 2 club
in the Associated Press poll, en
tertains Iowa in what is ex
pected to be a passing duel be
tween the Irish’ Johnny Lujack
and A1 Di Marco.
Wake Forest, a team that has
been climbing steadily toward
the first 10, gives once-tied
Duke a shot at its spotless rec
ord on the home field in the
big game of the Southern pro
gram, even overshadowing the
Georgia - Alabama battle that
usually produces the conference
champion or a Sure Bowl en
try,
Louisiana State and Vander
bilt, each beaten once, make
another prize Dixie pairing in a
night game at Baton Rouge, La.
Other major Southern games in
clude North Carolina at Flori
da. Auburn at Tulane, high-fly
ing Virginia at Virginia Mili
tary, strong Georgia Tech in a
home breather with the Citadel,
Tennessee at Tennessee Tech,
Hardin-Simmons at Mississippi
State, Davidson at Washington
and Lee, Maryland at Virginia
Tech and Ackansas-Mississippi
at Memphis with Ole Miss’
Charles Conerly, the nation’s
top ground gainer, in action.
In addition to the Texas-Rice
game, the Southwest will echo
with cheers from the visit of
unbeaten-untied Baylor to Tex
as Aggies and the meeting of
Oklahoma and Texas Christian
in Norman, Okla.
Indiana and Northwestern
hook up in a Big Nine contest
at Evanston, 111. and Ohio State
goes to Pittsburgh to hand the
Panthers another pasting.
Kentucky, which knocked off
Vanderbilt last week, plays an
intersectional game at Michi
gan State, which has been com
ing back strong after its 55-0
rout by Michigan. Other west
ern games find Marquette at
Wisconsin, Missouri at Iowa
