Gaskins Loop Shelor Starkey Bowles King McCluer With valuable experience being gained each week, it seemed that no team was to stop the strong Wolverines. ANDREW LEWIS 33, LANE HI o By the looks of the above score, the Wolverines had another field day. Seeking revenge for the defeat of Andrew Lewis’ crippled last year team, nothing could stop that powerful Wolverine line and their spedy, hard-hitting backs. The two ends of Salem’s eleven, Bob Jett and Harold Keith, played outstanding games, they continually stopped plays around end and were in the Lane Hi backfield a good part of the time. With all the boys playing heads-up ball, Coach Denton was very well pleased with his team’s victory. The following week we had light work-outs and, after the previous crushing defeat, we were due a rest. The follo wing Monday we were back at our regular drills, preparing for our old rivals of Roanoke. ANDREW LEWIS 15, JEFFERSON 7 With perfect weather for this traditional battle with Jefferson, the Woolverines invaded Roa¬ noke. Before a large crowd, the Salem eleven went on the field with the will to win. In the first period of play, punts were exchanged freely between Harry Walton, of Jefferson, and Jack Wil- bourne, of Salem. It was in the last of the first period that Salem started its first touchdown drive. Bowman gained five, Haskins added five more for first down. Bowman was stopped at the line and Wilbourne, side-stepping two tacklers, completed a pass to Bowman on the Jefferson 25 as the first period ended. Haskins gained five through center, Garrett picked up two and on the third Wilbourne passed to Gleason for a score. Haskins booted the return point. Wilbourne made a nice 20-yard run but was stopped on the Jefferson 27. Failing to gain, Wilbourne kicked over the goal line. The charging Salem line drove into Jef¬ ferson and tackled Wal¬ ton back of the goal for safety. Salem had 9 to o at the half. Shortly after the kick¬ off in the third, the entire Salem line sifted through the Jefferson forward wall and hit Walton hard, causing him to fumble. Wyatt Corbin fell on the ball for a Salem score. The placement was wide. Jefferson scored their { 51 } The Tilt with Jefferson

The entire squad of Coach Denton’s boys saw action in the game. The following week we ironed out the rough spots in the plays and added a few new ones. With great hopes of winning, we left for the coast on Thursday, to encounter the “Ty¬ phoons” of Newport News. ANDREW LEWIS 6, NEWPORT NEWS 19 The Wolverines went on the field that Friday night confident of winning. It seems that the Wolverines just couldn’t click and the Newport News “Typhoons” crossed our goal line three times. In the third quarter, Jack Wilbourne made a spectacular run of eighty yards only to be stopped short of the goal line. In the fourth quarter, the Wolverines, now beginning to click, took the kick¬ off and in successive plays drove sixty yards into scoring position. Rufus Bowman, in a play wide to the left, went over for the score. Rather disappointed, we returned for another week of drilling and with the same dominating spirit of winning we were ready for the next game. ANDREW LEWIS 44, COVINGTON 7 The Wolverines, to redeem their defeat of the week before and to prove their strength, really romped on Covington. Salem counted one touchdoAvn in each of the first time quarters. In the second quarter Covington scored their only touchdown. In the third, Salem reached their peak with 19 points. In the fourth Rufus Bowman intercepted a pass and raced 70 yards for a score. No doubt, without that strong, ever-charging line, the outcome of this game would have been different. By this victory we hoped to restore the students’ confidence in us. The following Friday we were again ready for a tilt. ANDREW LEWIS 47, WILLIAM FLEMING 7 Again we saw the mighty Wolverines go into action, and what action, with the team scoring at least once in each quarter. Coach Denton used his entire squad of players, and it looked as if they just didn ' t know when to stop scoring. The William Fleming score came in the last quarter of the game, against an entire team of substitutes. Another victory for the Wolverines is now on the books.

tf-Goiball only touchdown in the third period, when a long pass was thrown to John Cassell. Salem came back strong and drove to the Jefferson 9-yard line, only to be stopped short of an¬ other touchdown. In the fourth period Jefferson, in a vain effort to wfin, took to the air, only to be stopped again by the Salem team. A few plays later the game was over. That was a tired bunch of boys heading to¬ ward the shower room, for each had put his whole heart and best effort into the game. After this victory over Jefferson, the squad had the first of the week easy. Soon, however, our rough w r ork began and we were ready for the next team on schedule. SALEM 48, VINTON o With the Salem eleven scoring twice in the first five minutes of play and again in the first period, once in the second, twice in the third and once in the fourth, the Wolverines met with little opposition. The “Terriers” couldn’t make a dent in the strong Wolverine forward w T all and did not get into scoring territory all evening. Again the entire squad of Coach Denton’s players saw action. ANDREW LEWIS 13, LYNCHBURG 14 This was the closest and hardest fought game the Wolverines had played. The Wolverines, scoring in the first three minutes of play, had made a good start. It was impossible for the Hill- toppers to gain ground through that unyielding Salem line but in the second period McKenna, of Lynchburg, threw a long pass for the score that tied the Wolverines at the half. The Salem boys really came back fighting in the third. Harold Garrett ran the ball back to the Lynchburg 22, Salem gained nine yards four downs and Lynchburg took over. Big Buck John¬ son, Salem center, interrupted a pass and the Salem boys drove to the four only to be stopped again. The Salem line kept driving into the Lynchburg backfield and when Salem kicked to Lynchburg they fumbled, and again it was Salem ' s ball. Roots Bowman carried the ball over for a score this time. The try for extra point failed. In the fourth, with the Salem line still pounding Lynchburg on defense and on offense, the Hilltoppers made a long pass good and Bob Murray, of L) ' nchburg, kicked the extra point to win Morris Hudgins Katz Moose Williams Thompson Wilson 52 }
