HERE’S WHY AND HOW Then came the big game of the year — the one that the coaches, players and fans had been pointing to all season. The Pulaski- Wytheville game. Hundreds of chilled fans braved the icy cold to see these two great rivals clash, and as the Orange and Black came out on the field, the crowd seemed to wake up and a tremendous cheer filled the air. It was Pulaski’s night all the way, and it proved to be a most exciting Homecoming with the Orioles rolling over their biggest rival, 21 to 6. The Coiner-coached boys took advantage of a bad punt by King of Wythe- ville in the early part of the first quarter, and with Grantham and Jones carrying the ball on consecutive line plays they advanced to the 5-yard line, where on the next play Grantham scored through the middle of the line for the first score of the game. Jones skirted the end and went over standing up for the extra point and Pulaski was out in front 7 to 0. Wythe- ville came back in the second quarter to net a score when King dropped a pass to Cregger, who starred for Wytheville, to set the stage for a touchdown. Crowgy finally went over from the 1-yard line, but Cregger was smother- ed for the extra point. In the next few minutes of the contest Jones, behind beautiful blocking, got loose for a 50-yard run. Gran- tham counted from the 2 -yard line and Jones went over for the point on a sneak. The teams battled evenly for a quarter when sud- denly Jones intercepted a pass and ran it back to the 18. Grantham made it a first on three tries through the line and Jones went over for the last touchdown of the night, with “Bruising Bent” Grantham plunging through a gaping hole in the middle of the line for the extra point, and score stood 21 to 6. It was a thrilling game with both teams looking good on offense. Pulaski’s whole team starred, with Captain Wygal’s kicking a bright spot of the game. Although the Orioles did meet defeat at the hands of the big Marion Maroons in the last game of the season , every one of their fans is proud of them. Captain Johnny Wygal proved his ability to lead the team to victory, and the whole eleven stood out as one of the most powerful ever assembled at P. H. S.

ANOTHER GREAT GRID SEASON Coaches aar) Capti am Hard luck struck again the following week when the Orioles played the Narrows Green Wave to a scoreless tie. Pulaski put on bursts of power several times, only to be halted within the shadow of the goal posts. The Orioles jumped back into the win column again by defeating the Dublin Dukes, on a mud-soaked field, to a tune of 13 to 0. Dublin put up a gallant scrap, but they were no match for Pulaski’s heavier and more ex- perienced team. The winning streak was continued the following week when Pulaski’s powerful eleven, with two of their regulars on the bench, trounced Hillsville 24 to 0. The game featured t he play of Pulaski’s capable reserves who played most of the last half of the contest.

THE JUNIOR VARSITY COMES THROUGH After the Varsity’s football season was well under way, line coach John Davidson issued a call for candidates for the Junior Varsity, which was introduced in the school last year. A huge turnout, even greater than was anticipated, was thinned out and soon con- densed into a hardworking unit that began to show promise with the added attention. The J. V. ’splayed only one game during the season, that being with Christiansburg’s varsity, but they furnished plenty of opposition in scrim- mages with the big “Oriole” team. The purpose of the small eleven was not to play many actual outside or regularly scheduled games, but to teach the younger boys the fundamentals of the grid sport and to see what material could be developed for future varsity squads. The boys tried hard under the capable tutoring of Coach Davidson, and you can count on seeing many of them really carrying the colors for P. H. S. next fall! First Row— GUY QUESF.N BERRY, BOBBY STEVENS, GEORGE CARRAS, Manager; CHARLES KEGLEY, HERMAN HALL. Second Row— BILLY CARPER, R. K. BAUMGARDNER, BILLY OWENS, DOW OWENS, JACK CALDWELL, BENNY WEBB. Third Row— Coach JOHN DAVIDSON, REX ANDREW, X SAUNDERS, BILL ALLEY, GRAY FARMER. HEZ MALONE, KING HARRISON, CHARLES PAULEY, JACK SCOTT.
