First Game in Defense of Title. Ludlnton's Orioles, with one Victory and one defeat behind I them, swing into action in earnest i at Oriole field Friday evening. being scheduled to open the Big Seven conference season at that time. Manistee, Ludington'.s most traditional foe, comes to Luding- | ton stronger this year than it has j in several years. Danny Smick. nationally known athlete from University of Michigan, has taken over trie reins at the neighbor- Ing city and has been drilling his i charges with an eye to hanging up several Big Seven scalps in I Chippewa hall. Ludington is the ! first target of the Manislcean.s and the Orioles will find it no easy task to repel the marauding tribe. At the same time, the local crew, under Mitch Read, veteran coach at Ludington high school, •will foe fighting its first battle in defense of the Big Seven crown, which was won last fall by the Orioles, and is expected to give a fine account o.f itself. Backed by a sports renaissance at Manistee, the Chippewas will come to Ludington sporting their fancy, college-style o f f e n s e, taught them by Coach Smick. A combination of a new coach and increased promise by the team has made the citizens of the northern community football minded and the city will probably come to Ludington in a body j to cheer the invaders in their drive against the Orioles. Although the new floodlights at Oriole field were officially dedicated last Saturday evening. ] they will get their real test, in this week's game. Every football fan in Ludington is expected to jam the park for the game, something not possible in a Saturday evening game. The game is scheduled to get under way immediately after arrival of the high school band at 8 o'clock.
