Well its been a painstaking search but i found another Guy who went the whole hog on Tennessee Dern pm.

A lot of Carolina folks Are All for the idea to enlarge Kenan stadium if for no other reason than the Duke apr a each \ ii game.

A cot Point i Neligh Tennent is found in some of the most Peculiar places even newspaper offices. A Young sports scribbler the other Clay rashly assumed coach Bill Alexander who does no to doff his Derby to any of them was goofy in suggesting that signal calling has distinct advantages Over the huddle in picking the plays. Well or. Alexander is a very smart Man something the commentator was not. Just As a matter of rudimentary education in the business of picking the plays the Tyr get writer authority whose knowledge was perhaps gleaned from Reading the papers should know this the chief advantage in calling signals from the line of scrimmage lies in that it would take Only a moment to Check the play in Case the defense should split anywhere from a five to an eight Man line. He probably does no to know that offensive linemen have specific assignments based largely on six and Saven Man lines and the switches by the defensive can make a Fine play look like something found in the Ash tray. The Handicap of course of calling signals is the tremendous noise during a football game. That is the primary reason for the huddle not i it because it is conducive to master minding. A quarterback can speculate much better when lie can look at what there is to speculate upon. Anyway if Bill Alexander says so then its most Apt to lie right despite Hunt and peek authorities who should be in rompers. 9. A Yows Defeated East aeolian teachers College Here last night 51-33.

A Counihan a Story not yet told Duke was putting on the pressure for the opening of its new gymnasium a Swanky joint last saturday night. There was plenty of material sent out by the sports and news divisions of the publicity Bureau. They were going to town getting plenty of space in the newspapers. Friday on my desk landed a parcel from another school which has a relatively new gym. I turned to bisher and made a Little Wager that i could Tell him exactly what was in the package. Sure enough that a what it was a a comprehensive Story with pictures etc., on the other gym for release on sunday. The Day after the Duke dedication but the same Day on which the big stories would tie carried about the indoor stadium. I heaved it in the waste Basket figuring it mighty poor taste and virtually no judgment. Evidently someone straightened out the publicist in the meantime because a wire prepaid saturday afternoon asked that the Story be held Over with the naive explanation that a some persons would think Quot they were trying to Cut in on some one else. Hah just for the Brazen publicists information the sports editor of North Carolinas largest newspaper and an alumnus of the school paying the publicist also plan not not to use the poorly timed release a a.
