Wedneuiay, Oct 15,' 1941 IHI HIGH |NTRMUSC-= „„ POMT, NOtTy CJUOLN4 Light Roanoke Maroons Seeking Third Victory Against Locals Friday Panthers Begin Tapering Off In Preparation For Sefcond Home Game Of Season (tptcial to The Enterprise) SALEM, Va. — Oct. 14.— Roanoke College will go after her third victory in four starts when the Maroons invade High Point, N. C, for a game with the High Point Panthers Friday night. This will be the Maroons first •way-from-home football game and will be the first time the two teams have ever met on the gridiron. After a week of tough scrimmage sessions, Roanoke will be in good shape for the tilt. Coaches have been trying to iron out ragged offensive play which stood out in the Maroons' 7 to 0 victory over Tusculum last week. Thus far Roanoke has won .two out of three games, while High Point, meeting stronger, opposition, has managed to win but one out of four. The Panthers will rule •light favorites over the Virginians, however. Roanoke dropped a close game to Lenoir Rhyne. while defeating v Guilford and Tusculum. High Point's lone victory was scored over Emory and Henry. The Citadel, Lenoir-Rhyne, and Catawba have defeated the Carolinians. THREE INJURED'PLAYERS MAY HANDICAP POINTERS . The High Point College Panthers had lighter work today as they began to taper off in preparation for their second home game of the season Friday night in Albion Millis stadium against Roanoke College Maroons. ; The injury jinx, which has dog- fed the Panthers throughout the season hit the team again last week . when H. L. Maxwell was forced out of the fray. Doug Case, blocking back, and Fred Mills, reserve halfback, suffered minor injuries, although both are expected to see action Friday night, though neither will be in the best of shape. Maxwell, passing ace, is bothered with a twisted knee, and although expected to be able 'to play, it is not known how long his knee will hold up. The return of Marty Spinelii, second string halfback, and the recovery of/ Arthur -Griswald has helped the backficld situation. The fine work of Lubsdcn, a newcomer to the Panthers, who has played very little so far, should alleviate the backfield worries. The Panther line is expected to be at top shape for the first time this year with every lineman in good condition. Gilmer Myers, iplaying his first year of varsity football, has been showing up remarkably, wel lat an end post and should see a lot of action Friday .night. Due to the scarcity of ca. pable Hnemen, Myers plays the tackle post and is equally proficient at tackle . or end. According to the U. S. Office of Education, the school enrollment for 1941-42 is 31,566,000.

THE SCOREBOARD By HARRY GRAYSON NEA Service Sporti Editor NEW YORK, Oct. 15.—Their miserable season finished, the New York Giants were told by Chillie Willie Terry to write their weights on slips of paper and hand them to the boss.

Soldiers Will See Death Dodgers For; Quarter Of Price . Mercury Athletic Club Officials Announce Special Admission Prices Special ararngemenls have been made for the entertainment of v'isiiing o/Ticers and uniformed soldiers af the Hi£h Point Speedway Sunday afternoon when the Jimmie Lynch Death Dodgers lire- sent their thrill-packed automobile and motorcycle stunt show under the auspices of the High Point Mercury Athletic club. • Louis J. Fisher, president of the Mercury Alhletip Club, announced today that soldiers would be admitted to the speedway for approximately one-fourth of the regular rate. Such an arrangement was made by officers of the club and Irish Horan, manager and announcer for the sensational thrill show. All indications point to a huge turnout for the thrill classic, this being the first automobile and motorcycle stunt show ever scheduled for the oil-surfaced, dustless mile track. Twenty-two thrilling and entertaining events are scheduled for I he two-hour performance, offering a variety of entertainment along.with spine-lingling thrillers. Both, automobile and motorcycle stunts svill be attempted by "the nationally famous troupe of daredevils. Two famous clowns. Tad ! Tosky and Abe (Percy) Rademaker. will mingle laughs with thrills, but performing as a clown for a thril! show is far more difficult and hazardous than with a circus or some other type of show. At Radford. Va., last Sunday, Tosky suffered severe body injuries when accidentally struck and knocked unconscious when clipped by a motorcycle operated by Daredevil Harry Woolman. national winner of the trick riding championship. Performing in the featured automobile stunts will be such stars as George Mason, Philadelphia. Pa., a former race trek stai; who will plunge a stock model sedan through two fiaming, bomb-laden firewall barriers; Jimmie Kelley, Snow Shoe, Pa., who will give an exhibition of how to demolish an automobile in the deliberate crash rail, and Bill Horton. El Paso, Texas, who will attempt the death-defying dive bomber crash. In this event. Daredevil Horton will circle the track, race up an elevated ramuway, catapult his •' machine far through space and finally crash into the side of another car.

Franklin, a Teal good hitter, belted out Tony Musto in Cleveland the other night in less time than it takes to say "I'd like a Louis match." He'd like to go over Louis' entire The Bum-of- Month Club list, and if he disposes of Simon", Louis will hear a demand for a chance from'a member of his own race Jack Hurley, who managed Billy Petrolic, has Franklin. Hurley, who is better than a green hand, believes his strong and fierce young savage would flatten Louis. Lem Franklin easily could be the best possible opponent for Joe Louis at that. Certainly, there is no one else around unless you count Billy Conn, who is in moth balls until next June. And what ever became of Lou Nova? Close to 200 heavyweights are expected to compete in a white hope tournament in Detroit. Frank Barbaro, the promoter, seems intent on splashing lard all over the Motor City.
