JOHN GLEASON Captain-Elect To Lead the Mighty Wolverines At the annual Monogram Club ban¬ quet, given by the Home Economics Club, big John Gleason, able young man, was chosen by his teammates to be captain of the ' 40 football team. " Pretty Boy, " as he is called by the players, is quite popular with the stu¬ dents. Under his capable leadership, the Mighty Wolverines should have an " above par " season next year. FOLLOWERS OF FOOTBALL To the Students and the Faculty— who are faithful followers of our teams, good or ways be faithful to the school that we all love bad, we salute you and hope that you will al- so much—Andrew Lewis.

Andrew Lewis 21, Graham 7 The lads from Graham High came to Salem with high hopes of beating An¬ drew Lewis, but they left with a different point of view. The W olverines showed their superiority throughout the entire con¬ test, scoring in each of the first three quarters. Gra¬ ham ' s lone tally came in the third quarter.

Standing: Warren Murphy and James Ferris COMPETENT COACHES TRAIN EAGER A Typical Football Practice In order to train the boys, to try to perfect them for a coming contest, a long, hard process of drilling is necessary. Practice starts about 3:45 with a couple of laps. Then we loosen each other up with body movements and calisthenics. After that, Coach Denton and Coach Peters take charge of their respective departments; namely, Denton with the line, and Peters with the back- field. For thirty or forty-five minutes, we really work. We backfield boys drill ‘on passing and signals (plays) mostly, while the linemen are given a well educated meaning of " bull pen. " Incidentally, the " bull pen " is somewhat similar to pitting perpetual motion against an immovable object. Actually, it consists of three players, two of which try to block out the tackier and the other tries to get through the " immovable force " to tackle the imaginary ball-carrier. All of us get a big dose (not doze) of blocking and tackling. We then scrimmage for about forty- five minutes; and, after a hard afternoon, we are glad to take two laps and head for the showers. (Pardon me, I mean we ' re glad to head for the showers.) The Four Horsemen " (Garrett, Wilbourne, Gleason, Reynolds) Below, scrimmaging, the boys are getting ready for a coming contest

WHEN THE BLUE AND First row: Wilbourne, Gleason, Jett, Philpott, Garrett. Second row: Coach Peters, Zeon, Lineberry, Hollifield, McCluer, Bowman, Peters. Third row: Hinderlight, Haskins, Starkey CO-CAPTAIN DICK FISHER " Square, " as he is known by his companions, did a fine job last season. He made the third All-State team. We ' re looking forward to his power in the line next year. A RESUME OF THE YEAR Andrew Lewis 7, Newport News 20 The large squad from Newport News proved too powerful for our light squad of Wolverines. The big Typhoon backs pounded the Lewis line for long gains, and skirted the ends for plenty of ground. The Typhoons struck in the first period, after recovering a blocked kick. Bartles went over for the score from the five- yard line. A second Typhoon score came about midway of the second stanza, after Newport News had been given the ball on the two on a pass interference penalty. In the third quarter, on a sustained drive, the Typhoons scored their final touchdown. With the old Salem spirit of " never give up, " the Wolver¬ ines, largely by passes from Co-Captain Preston Reynolds to Rufus Bowman, scored in the last period. One of Reynolds ' passes to Bowman put us on the Typhoon six-yard line where, two plays later, Reynolds cracked off tackle to score. He added the point by a dropkick. Andrew Lewis 18, Radford 2 This game was scheduled for a " breather " and, after tying the powerful State Champion team from Lynchburg the week before, we certainly did " breathe. " In fact, we " breathed " so much that we had no easy time in crushing the lads from Radford. The Wolverines, all below par, drew first blood as Garrett crashed to pay dirt in the first quarter. Little Billy Cyphers proved his ability as he skirted right end in the second quarter for a score. In the third quarter, on a pass from Reynolds to Gleason, we scored the final touchdown. It was in this quarter that Radford got their safety, to do the un¬ expected—to score on the Wolverines.
