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.

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.

THE WINTER MONTHS BROUGHT BASKETBALL C OAOH John Coiner issued a call for varsity basketball candidates soon after football was over, for which the response was prompt, with around twenty small but enthusiastic and game youngsters turning out for the initial practice. The boys realized that they were on the short end of tremendous odds, w ith only one of their number, center Clyde Shinault, a new- comer, hitting the six-foot mark; but they dug in determinedly and after some time developed a fast breaking and deceptive offensive threat, under the patient tutoring of Coach Coiner, which allowed the quint to give a good account of themselves. The squad was at length reduced to ten members, and the remainder of the youths or- ganized into Junior Varsity and Midget teams under the guidance of Coach John Davidson. Captain Louis Painter, “Popeye” Farmer, “Shinny” Shinault, Bill Bouldin, Bowser Haislip, Von Moody and Hez Malone all saw action in the first contest of the season played on the Christ iansburg hardwoods. The Ori- oles dropped the contest to the count of 23-1 7, but they weren’t discouraged by the setback and continued to work all the harder in pre- paration for William Fleming’s formidable aggregation. The Coiner-men, though again falling victims to another much superior oppo- nent, by their consistent play proved to them- selves, as well as to their followers, that they had what it takes to develop into a winning five.
