THE FROSH SEASON The season 1939 brousht to Ffosh Coach McMillian quality rathei than quantity. Among the 21 hopefuls who reported on the firs! day, not one lacked the ability to become a future varsity player. Aficr three weeks of practice. Ions and hard. Coach Lonnie Mac had a fairly powerful team rounded out. On Saturday, September 30, the Blue Anklets encountered the Carolina Biddies in Columbia. White they were turned back by two first quarter touchdowns and a last quarter safety, a total of 14 points, the Anklets threw quite a scare into the Biddies. Starring for the Anklets in this fray were Prcstwood, Culp, Mixon, Burns, X ' ilson and Gibson. Friday of the following week brought CIcmson ' s Baby Bengals to Johnson Field as the opponents of the Anklets. Outweighed by at least 20 pounds to the man, the Baby Hose battled spiritedly from start to finish. At the half the score stood 12 to b — Clemson. After the half the Cubs annexed three more touchdowns to win 32 to 6. The Anklets weren ' t outclassed until the continuous flow of Clemson reserves had worn them out. Nixon, McNiell, Dent and Prestwood were the Anklet sialwarts. The Slue Anklets won their first game of the season on October 20 when they downed a hard-fighting Wofford team at the Chester County fairgrounds 13 to 7. Scoring once each of the first two quarters, the Anklets were never in serious trouble in spite of the fact that the Terriers did score rn the second period. Outstanding for the Baby Sox were Whitcheart, Culp, Crabtrcc, McNeill, Heidt and Mixon. The Anklets cut loose with all the power, speed and deception at their command in the second half of their game with Erskine ' s Little Fleet, and defeated them 25 to 0. The first half was evenly played, but the last period saw Prestwood, Culp, Bryan, Crabtrec, Mixon, Dent, Gibson, Collier, Whitehcart, Bell, in fact the whole team play inspired football. Time after time Erskine ' s line was broken. The Papooses of Newberry handed the Anklets a 13 to 7 licking In the season ' s final fray. The Anklets failed to get going until late in the gan-e a-d scveial times when near the goal the.r offense bogged down. Best for the Baby Hose ' ere Culp, Heidt, Collier, Mixon and Crab ree.

7 ? and two by Meislcy made it P. C. 6, Wofford 0. Coleman ' s attempted placement failed. Returning a Meisky punt fofty-threc yards from the Presbyterian 48, Taggart set the stage for the touchdown which tied the game. On the first play of the second quarter Taggart passed to Elias who went over standing up. The attempt to convert failed, the score remaining P. C. 6, Wofford 6. Coleman broke through to block Mabry ' s punt in the third quarter to start the second Hose dnve. The ball was recovered on the Wofford twenty-six. Meislcy piclccd up two and then passed to Coleman for a fourteen-yard gam and a first down with the ball on the Wofford ten. At this point, June Moore, who had been kept on the sidelines because of a twisted ankle, was sent in and on two plays moved the ball to the seven. On the next play he paved the way for Meisky to drive within one-half yard of pay dirt. From here Meisky drove over for the score on the try. The try for extra point was again no good and the score stood, P. C. 12, Wofford 6. With less than five minutes to play in the game, Taggart passed to Elias for twenty-four yards putting the ball on the P. C. seven. Four power plays brought the second Terrier touchdown. Maness attempted to place-kick the extra point, but a host of Presbyterian players broke it up. P. C. 12, Wofford 12. Meisky and Mitchell in the backfield and Coleman and Erwin in the line were best for the Hose. The services of June Moore were sorely missed. P. C. 0— RO LLINS 13 In the 1939 finale the Blue Hose were defeated 13 to by the Tars of Rollins College in Orlando, Florida, the night of November 24th. The weather was unusually cold for Florida and a foggy and smoke-fillcd atmosphere added to the hardships of the Stockings. The Tars had not been officially scouted and the Blue Hose had no idea of what to expect. As it was, they met and battled on even terms most of the way, a team which boasted a record far more impressive than that of the Hose. The Tars started a drive early in the first quarter that netted them their first seven points. Behind a screened pass and the brilliant running and passing of Joe Justice, star back of the Tars, the Rollins team carried the pigskin from the Hose ' orty-seven to a touchdown without having to punt. The extra point was completed from placement putting the Tars out front by seven points. Throughout the second and third quarters the two teams battled furiously but on . ven terms. Fumbles and intercepted passes halted several Hose threats. Early in the final period, a series of line plays and a pass gave the ball to Rollins on the P. C. four-yard line. On the next play Jones carried the ball to the Hose one, and finally crashed center for a touchdown. The attempted conversion failed and the score remained 13 to in favor of Rollins. Late in the fourth quarter the Hose started a drive deep in their own territory and moved the ball to the Rollins ' twenty. Here, however. Justice intercepted a Blue Stocking pass to end the threat. The game ended a moment later. The team as a whole played one of the best games of the season. Moye, Buie, Kee and Evans were magnificent in the line, and in the backfield, the generalship of Meisky and the line-plunging of Mitchell were particularly good.

J- It e tj lac — t c c L I It if " Rich DuBose, Captain With warm weather bringing the urge for fly-chasing and base-stealing into the blood of " Chick " Galloway and his diamond hopefuls, as this section goes to press the Blue Hose nine is rapidly developing into a formidable aggregation. Just what the season will bring in the way of wins and losses remains to be seen, but the determination typical of Galloway- coached teams is certain to bring its thrills. With Blue Hose diamond teams having an even-stephen record in the percentage column since baseball was first introduced to Palmetto college circles by Coach Walter Johnson in 1916, the 1940 team will have to at least break even to maintain that rather enviable record. Since that time the Blue Stockings have won 158 of thei r 316 games. Graduation took heavy toll from the ranks when six men received their sheepskins last June. Lost by the diploma route were inficlders Home, Batchclor, and Reid. Outfielders Folley and Ritch, and pitchers Cox and Christian also graduated. In addition to these losses, the Blue Hose lost one of the brightest THE VARSITY SQUAD— First row, left to right: Bdt boys and st oogest supporters. . . .
