Down alleys Alley with Fletcher film a Rainbow for the tigers open letter to the coaches some people called it Black thursday. But in reality the game was correctly named big thursday and it was certainly a big one for the Stem ton tigers. Clemson won the game at Columb a the state fair classic 13-0, and it was a Bunch of underdog tigers that did it. They were aroused. Credit for the big Victory goes to the entire Tiger team and to coach Frank Howard. But a major portion of the credit must go to quarterback Harvey White and end Ray Masneri. White led the terrific tigers on offence and it was the Stellar playing of Masneri that inspired the whole line and set the gamecocks Back on their heels time and turned i by the first string Clemson line was magnificent. Fans often try to pick a single play and make it Trie turning Point in a game. It cannot always be done. Certainly there were key plays in the big thursday Clemson had the Way. For the first Quarter and most of the second the tigers seemed to be feeling out the gamecocks both offensively and defensively. Then All of a sudden the Orange Clad tigers awoke with a snarl and put the bite on the us team. The drive that rolled for 86 Yards just before the half was Beautiful to behold. In just one minute and 11 seconds the tigers moved to pay dirt. It All began on the Clemson 14 when a us drive sputtered out. It was a funny thing and maybe an Omen but when Carolina made a first Down at the Clemson 18, n Rainbow appeared in the sky. At the time it seemed to be a Good sign for Carolina but when Clemson held the gamecocks on the 14, the tide began to turn. Mike Dukes burst through the line for 12, White was held for no gain. Then Dukes made 10 More. White rambled for a first and 10 on a 21-Yard Jaunt. White passed to Mathis for a first Down at the 15 and then he hit Queensberry for a score. The second score was just As sensational. It took the tigers just four plays to Roll for the tally in the third period. The Gamecock fans looked on in disbelief As White passed 60 Yards to Florence s Whitey Jordan who went to the Carolina one. When Rudy Hayes bulled Over from the one and White converted the die was cast. The gamecocks were missing first string quarterback Bobby Bunch and Clemson seemed to have every play for King Dixon pegged correctly. All in All both teams put on a Good show and the fans regardless of their sentiments saw a Good game. Florence s Whitey Jordan played a whale of a game far Clemson and made Magie City residents proud. Florence s yellow jackets thumped the Hartsville red foxes 34-7 Friday night. The foxes were simply outgunned. A More spirited Bunch you won t Sec and they were in there All the Way. Several Good plays broke the Back of the Hartsville team. It was just too much of Jimmy Hardwick David Keller Larry Jimmy Davis Ken Lester. Bucky Sharpe Jimmy gee Carl Harris Ryan Powell. George Corbin Johnny Jones and the whole squad. After the game Hartsville coach Tom Hendrix was disappointed but not Down and out. What can you say when your team gets beat like he asked. Yon just have to say they got beat that s he said Flor ence played Well. Wall met Hendrix after the game and they Chat Ted together. Wall remarked that he kept his first team backs in the game for two quarters because of injuries and the Lack of reserves. Tom i just did t have a second team said Wall. Replied Hendrix i know you did to you had two first Marine corps Recruiter Lee Pridgen is the Man who has been helping keep us up to Date with Florence Fig ures. We appreciate his letting us use his compilations. Open letter to the pee Dee conference football coaches for several weeks we have endeavoured to select with your cooperation a conference player and coach of the week. To Date we have had a total of about six votes in the five weeks. That to us is a pitiful response to a Worth while cause. The idea of picking a Star player and coach is not one for the Benefit of us Here. The idea is to give the Young conference still in its initial football season a boost. The pee Dee is a Good Loop and Praise will do no harm. Nominating a player and coach would be a Means of keeping the conference before the Public and letting the Many readers and interested fans know what the teams Are doing. Certainly players and coaches who do a Good Job deserve Praise. There Are probably two arguments by coaches for not sending in votes. One is Lack of time. The other is that you feel you Are not Able to name a player since you can see Only one game. In answer to those Points hear this. It does t re quire that much time to Jot Down names after a Little consideration and put the tally in the mail. And if you Aren t Able to pick the duo who is after All no one can see More than one at a time. We feel that the idea is still a Good one. And await your votes from the Friday games. We hate to dismiss this As an abortive suggestion. The pee Dee conference is growing. to be fed. New fall clothes singletons inc. 172 West Svans
