FOOTBALL VARSITY Katz G. Poff C. Poff McDaniel Whitlock Wood Reynolds Crowder Marmaduke Lambert Brown Captain Watson Cormell Fisher McGhee 1. John Gleason— 5 ' 10 " —160 “Pretty Boy,” one of the most promising backs in the state, was equally excellent on defense as well as offense. 2. Van Wood— 5 ' 11 " —155 Jefferson’s loss was our gain. Always ready when the going was tough, Van will be sorely missed next year. 3. Preston Reynolds—5 ' 11 " —150 Due to a broken shoulder Preston did not see as much action as should have been his. His ability as a triple-threat man earned him the responsibility of co-captain of next year’s squad. 4. Leon Crowder—5 ' 6| " —132 As fine a reserve back as Andrew Lewis has ever produced. His experience in seeing action in every game should enable him to be a valuable asset to Wake Forest. 5. Bob Saul— Manager 6. Hubert Whitlock—5 ' 7”—151 Small but one of the fastest backs that has ever played for Andrew Lewis. “Little Man” always pulled the squad out when their spirits were low. 7. Pete Holdren—5 ' 10”—145 We are looking forward to Pete’s outstanding passing ability to lead us to victory next year. 8. Gorman Poff— s ' 8”—150 A reserve plugger who held down the guard post faithfully. Gorman graduated at mid¬ term. 9. Fred Cormell— s ' 8”—155 Fred, a first string guard, really earned his position for four years due to his great blocking and pile-driving. 10. Jim Brown—5 ' 6 " —135 The toughest red head that has ever played for Salem High School. “The Mighty Mite” will be a great loss to the 1939 squad. 11. Harold Garrett—5 ' 7 ”—150 “Admiral” will be a mainstay in the back- field next year. His superb passing, kicking and power in plunging the line will surely find him a berth. 12. Paul Foley —5 " 11 " —160 Foley, a reserve lineman who helped hold the wall in some of our great battles, will be playing the same clean football next year. 13. Walton Bowles —5 ' 9”—145 A steady running mate who was moved in from the backfield to relieve Brown at guard. We will be watching for him next year. 14. Rufus Bowman —5 ' 9”—135 “Roots,” probably one of the lightest men on the team, is one of the reasons why Coach breaks into a smile when approached about the ’39 eleven. 15. Harold Keith —5 ' 10 " —155 Another dependable reserve who helped Mc¬ Ghee at the wing position. He should be a first string next year. 16. Lewis Surface —5 ' 8”—145 A sturdy little center who shared the honors with Watson at the pivot position. 17. G. C. Watson —5 ' 7 " —137 Short but tough, “George” filled Dan Hurdle’s shoes to a “T” at center. V. P. I. will probably see action from him in the next few years. 18. Jack Dame — Manager 19. Jack Wilbourne —5 ' 10”—155 Jack’s good sportsmanship and steady play¬ ing in the backfield will make him an invaluable cog in the next year’s team. 20. Paul McGhee —5 ' 10”—160 “Mac,” who has played two years of varsity football will be undoubtedly missed from the ’39 lineup. He graduates this year. 21. Robert Lambert —5 ' 10”—170 “Apey, ” the youngest football captain in the history of the school proved himself ably in the leadership of his team. He is one that won’t be forgotten. 22. Richard Fisher —5 ' 7”—185 The heaviest man in the line, “Square’s” love of personal contact will make him a precious possession of next year’s squad. He proved his popularity by being elected co-captain of the ’39 lineup.

The Boys Hit the Hardwood When the Basket Ball Season Opens Paul Whitlock Harold Shelor Bernard Graybill Howard Wimmer Bob Jett Preston Reynolds Rufus Bowman Robert Lambert Paul McGhee Frank Hale D. J. Showalter Howard Barnett Jack Dame ( Manager ) With few letter men returning from the preceding season, the ’38—’39 basket ball squad made a good record this year. Six of the games were lost by one or two- point margins. The squad had many difficulties to face, among which was the graduation at midterm of Bob Lambert and Fred Cormell. Sickness also kept many of the boys out of the games. But these mishaps didn’t discourage Coach Denton. The boys worked hard during several weeks of practice and finally rounded out a fighting band of basketeers who tied with Danville for third place in the Western District.
