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.

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.

WHITE CO-CAPTAIN PRESTON REYNOLDS " Burr ' the most talked of boy in these parts last year, always came through with his top- notch performances. He was chosen on the second All-State team (many thought he should have made the first). We hate to lose ' ' Pres ' ' and his triple- threat ability. First row: Reynolds, Fisher, Bordin, Hodges, Surface, Johnston, McCallum, Foley. Second row: Hall, Katz, Haupt, Keith, Bowles, Dame, Wright. Third row: Hudgins, Spencer, Brown, Phillips, Ramsey, Peters, Saul Andrew Lewis 14, Charlottesville 19 The Wolverines, still in a slump, went to Charlottesville, only to lose a heart-breaker to Lane Hi. Lane, revengeful for our having beaten them the two previous years, started strong by scoring in the first quarter. They scored again in the second and third quarters before we got hold of ourselves. After intermission, we came back much stronger and more determined. They kicked off to us. We then started from our thirty which went to their forty. From there Reynolds tossed a short pass to Bowman, who reached the twenty. He tried a pass to Ralph Peters, only to have it intercepted. In the fourth quarter, we put on the steam. Reynolds threw a twenty-yard pass to Letcher Philpott, who ran forty yards to score. After that, aided by Garrett ' s good running, we marched down the field, where Reynolds scored. If the boys had gotten started in the first quarter instead of the fourth, we would have easily defeated Lane, of Charlottesville. Andrew Lewis 32, Vinton 0 The score seems to tell the whole story! The Wolverines, disgusted with themselves in the two previous games, rose up in their mighty powe r and brutally trounced the hapless William Byrd team from Vinton. There were too many scores to go into detail about. Rey¬ nolds, as usual, was the big gun in the Wolverines ' offense, scoring twice himself and passing to Philpott and Garrett for two more. Jack Wilbourne showed classy ball-carrying when he crashed through a gaping hole in his own right guard and raced 55 yards in excellent style to score the first time Lewis got its hands on the ball. Yes, sir, we really played ball that day! Andrew Lewis 19, Danville 0 The Salemites ended a good season of football in a blaze of glory by walloping the helpless Danville eleven. Preston Reynolds led the onslaught for the Wolverines by scoring two of the three touchdowns and by drop-kicking one extra point. In the second quarter, with the ball resting on the 30-yard line, Reynolds cut off left tackle and dashed 70 yards for the initial score. In the third period, Reynolds came back for another tally, bucking 21 yards in seven rushes (going over from the seven- yard stripe), after Gleason had recovered a fumbled lateral. Rufus Bowman scored the third and final touchdown in the early minutes of the fourth stanza when he pulled in a short pass from Reynolds and raced 30 yards for the score. Again in the fourth quarter, Bowman intercepted a Dan¬ ville pass on their 35, eluded would-be tacklers, but was finally brought down on the two-yard line. Coach Denton said that John Gleason and Wyatt Corbin played the best game of their football careers against Danville. We won five games, lost four and tied one last season and, with 23 lettermen returning, I know we all expect a better season next year.
