Hampton who is a senior this year was known As Quot Stork when he was a freshman but the next year when Keene enrolled the Moniker was dropped. It was t fair to Keene for no one could think of a suitable name for him. Naturally men of height meet each other so it Wasny to an Accident Itiat Hampton Aud Keene became roommates their first year Here no closer two friends can be found of the Campus than these two dangling redheads. A native of Rutherfordton. Hampton captains rho panthers this year. Hast season his 2511 Points was High in the North state conference. He was unanimously he Ved on the All conference five and was accorded the same Honor on the Carolinas a. A. U. Team. The panthers captured the titles of both leagues and it was Hampton a flue playing that was in a Large manner responsible for the splendid seasons record of 2 2 wins Aud 4 losses. This year looms As his brightest yet. In three games he has looped in 41 Points almost a 14 Point average. Quot Hamp Quot is not an Idle Man off season either. This fall he coached the College soccer eleven to a state championship.

At the National intercollegiate tournament at Kansan City last March there was a Parade of champions made up of the players and coaches of tile 32 participating teams. When the ins paraded on the floor there was no doubt who was tallest Keene could easily be seen above the other. It s Only logical that teammates of Hampton and Keene look up to them. Everyone else on the Campus does but there is a Low Side to this Quot tall Story. Coach Virgil Yow gets to feeling Low when he thinks of Hampton and Keene gradual. Lug.

Quot for years it has been the Universal Rustom of the athletic Hoard to leave the person i of Tbs team wholly in the hands of the coaching staff.
