Coach Johnny C/OSS L Parker's Spaulding Red Raiders Peterborough Kennelt Littleton St. John Woodsrille Tilton X'fld Charlestown Gorham Hyisborough Somersworth Ne\vmarket Pembroke Alvirne Lancaster Sanborn Wilton Rogers' Vikings have long been a popular feam in this town. Portsmouth had an interesting series going with the Viiings during the past decade. Former coach Ed Petro started it off after Rogers had played Hillhotise High of New Haven to a standstill to the finals of "the New England's at Boston. The teams played home and home for three or four years with Portsmouth sweeping the series. Finally it came down to a one-a-year show -- Portsmouth at Newport one year and vice versa. Rogers finally came out on top in the last game of the series aboui four years ago. Jlaybe the Vikings will remain on the card. Portsmouth was lo have had an opportunity to play in their new gymnasium. It was ready about a year before the home of the New Hampshire champs was opened. The facility at Newport is about (he same as the one at PHS. It seals about 2,500 and 3,000 can be put into the place by squeezing fans close together. Portsmouth will meet Old Town and Durfee tackles Rogers on the first night of the tournament. The play should be mighty interesting.

Thej Haiders are undefeated as they posted a 49-40 victory over the Berlin High Mountaineers in Rochester a week ago tonight. Spaulding never fails to give the Portsmouth boys a real fuss for their money. Some of the Clippers played on (he squad two years ago and suffered a pair of lacings at the hands of the Raiders. That was thc first time in history the Raiders swept the home and home series with the Clippers The Rochester lads won 56-54 in overtime and 53-36 in the seconi meeting. I.ast year Portsmouth had fo do the "impossible" as il met the Raiders in the first game of the tournament.

Lisbon Sammy Baugh, another former Behnonl National Football League great, Hollis couldn't do It and Monday after Troy weeks of open.feuding with Titan Ashland owner Harry Wismer and his sec- HaverhiU ond straight 7-7 season, Baugh s - Heart was dropped to a "consultant" Writ*field and and Turner was named succeed him as head coach. "Everybody's happy," claimed Wismer, who said Turner would be paid $20,000 a year under a two-year contract, the same amount Baugh was drawing as head coach. * * * The out-spoken Titan boss then took another verbal punch at Baugh, who last week said he hoped he'd be fired but wouldn't quit, obviously because he wanted lo be paid the $20,000 due him under his firec-year contract. 'Turner was my first choice for head coach when I organized this club," Wismer said. "My second choice was Otto Graham, my third was Frank Leahy and my fourth choice was Sammy Baugh." Baugh wasn't available for comment but last week, when Wismer threatened to demote him, Sammy said: "That's wonderful. I'd like lo be an assistant at these prices." Turner, now 42, played 13 seasons with the Bears and eight times was named all-pro center.

Thc game was lo have been played here a week from tonight, . ,-, . but the SomervUle school officials did not return the contract after for the point lead in Class M lo-, olh ; r * enter /ournament competition which wift keep them at a Ihe game had been agreed upon. ' ' - - · - · Athletic Director George Ford contacted the school and was iold the board of education would not allow trips out of slafe. Massachusetts does have a 20-game limit on Ihe leagues and Somerville usually plays a couple of games outside. However, they could have notified Portsmouth a liUle sooner because the game was on the schedule submitted to the state athletic association for approval. This meant Portsmouth was short one Class L game and no possible chance to add another opponent which would count in the ratings. Somerville does owe Portsmouth a home game, too. When Ed Skiffington was coach, Portsmouth played in Somerville and was to have returned here the next season. Skiff, however, figured his home town club was too tough for Portsmouth and the game was dropped. On the records, however, we still are entitled lo a game ·A Portsmouth. * * « Next week's Christmas Tournament will sec three of the fine schoolboy teams on hand to vie with the Clippers for honors in the third annual event.
