this tilt. All those who saw the game know that this Salem eleven outplayed the Lynchburg team in every respect. The team rested a week and then prepared for their last game of the season and for ten boys it was to be the last game played under Andrew Lewis colors. ANDREW LEWIS 33, DANVILLE 6 Still showing its mighty offense, the Wolverines again scored in each period of play. In the first minute of play Roots Bowman made a beautiful 53-yard run for the first score. Wilbourne carried the next one over. Harold Garrett took the ball on a reverse in the second period and scored standing up. In the third, Haskins went over for a score and at the beginning of the fourth McCluer crossed the line for the last Salem score. Danville scored on a 65-yard pass from Reigh Puk to Charlie Roysten, Danville end. This game ended our season of ’40. The statistics showed that we had the highest scoring team in the state and the most powerful offense in the school’s history as well as a very creditable defense. Among the outstanding players on the squad was Richard Fisher, guard, who w ' as chosen on the all-state eleven. Richard is the first player from Salem to win this honor since 1930. Jack Wilbourne, back, was chosen on the second team all-state eleven. John Gleasoon, Ed McCullum and Rufus Bowman received honorable mention. We are all proud of these boys and know that each deserved these honors. FIRST TEAM, First Row —Bernard Katz, Richard Fisher, Walton Bowles, Millard Bryant, Herald Keith. Back Row —Claude Hollyfield, Rufus Bowman, John Gleason, Jack Wilbourne, Richard Haskins, Johnny McCluer. 4 53 )

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 }

Basket Ball Like every other sport, to have a good team means regular practice and hard work. Basket hall is no exception. With several registers from last year’s squad to build his ’41 team around, Coach Denton started his regular drills in November. The Salem five began their season with a 32 to 23 victory over Rocky Mount. This game was a little ragged but the boys had made a good start and were soon to play some fine ball. One of the most exciting games of the season was played against the strong Hampton team. With the score tied in the last seconds of play, Harold Shelor made a final shot to give us a 28 to 27 victory. For the first time in several years, Salem gained a victory over Lynchburg. It was in this game that Bob Jett, tall Salem center, played a bang-up game and had a total of nine points to his credit. Howard Barnett, who was absent when the team was pictured. Showing a strong offense, the Salem boys beat Lexington by a score of 48 to 35. Harold Shelor and D. J. Showalter played outstanding ball and each bagged 17 points. The Salem team won ten games and lost eight. Although they could have had a better season, they considered it a successful one. Coach Denton is looking forward to his next year’s team. Many of this year’s players will be back and they should have an above average season. Among the outstanding players was Harold Shelor, honorary captain, who had a total of 197 points for the season. This is the biggest number of points made by one individual in the history of this school. Upper —Scenes from the Vinton, Rocky Mount and Danville games. Lower —The Danville game. C4 5 I
