I SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON FARMERS ADVOCATE II as to the over-all strength and just how many games will win, you can take it from us right now that Charles Hi h's '66 Purple Panthers will take the field on Sep- t 2 at Romney', a well-conditioned and drilled to the Lt degree in high school football fundamentals as you care to see anywhere. Head Coach Doug Lutman, a hard worker every minute he is on the field, oh'early has uad believing that they can develop into a fairly form- outfit this Fall. And his assistant, George Zamberlan, somewhat the heavy side, is a chap who thrives on the leather crack and demands plenty of hustle and work from his linemen.. The combination of Lutman Zaznberlan., it seems to us, and we have only watched a few times so far, have the football situation well in at this early stage of the season... !

The problems include teaching * not orfly the half dozen experienc- ed Panthers a completely new de- fensive and offensive system of play, but first giving the new- comers to the squad the basic fundamerRals of the game and then bringing them along also under the new formations. TWO PROBLEMS SOLVED Coach Lutman said this week, that he feels he has solved two of the major offensive problems which faced him at the outset -- that of finding good replacements for the cemer and quarterbaeking spots left vacant with the graduat. io~a of Pierce Burr and Dougie Perk~ It now appears as though Rich- ie Mills, a tough and rugged 160- pound senior, is showing great promise in the center slot, Jim- my Hammond, a big 170-pound sophomore, is also showing real promise as a good back-up man for Mitts in this position. front Club House at Shenandoah !

But with very little exper- ier~ce under his belt, and moving into probably the most inticate job on the team, Corbin is going ~o have to work harder and longer on the quarterbacking job than most of the other boys Lutman said. And he is doing just that. He is a good big boy, standing 6-ft and weighing about 170 pounds, and he had real potentials for making a fine signal ca~er, but he ,lacks the experience in ball- ha~ling, signal calling and fak- ing which comes only in combat action, Coach Lutman said. It takes about two years to develop a good quarterback, Lutman stat- ed, but Corbin could prove to be an exception and make it good this year. At least he is working hard at the job.

With 51 boys already signed up and prospects for possibly anot- her half dozen still to report with the opening of the 1966-67 school term, the Charles Town Junior High football squad may be the largest in numbers this year in the history of the school. Head Coach Harry Barker said this morning (Thursday) that a total of 43 of the 51 boys who have indicated their intentions of playing junior high football this year, have been working out regularly each morning and that when school starts the number could jump to 50 or more, The boys are being put through a three-hour pry-season training period each morning, the training consisting mainly of calisthenics and no football gear.

They shared that position, frequently last season with the departed Kenny I~we, and this experience should make the Cardinal offense move more smoothly this season. Coach Kessel also has two other veterans backfield men back ,this year in Ricky Wright ,one of the best little ball play6rs in the sec. tion and Run Kidrick. And what will the Cardinal line be like? Well that's a quest- ion not answerable at this time since not ~ll the expected Card- inal grid candidates have report- ed for the pre-season drills Turn To Page 2-B pleted the past week were in the ing soaking sopping hair-Straggl.

The schedule shows such teams as Hedgeswille, Mussel man and Harpers Ferry two games #ach, North High of Mar- tinsburg and Handley High of Winchester, Va. A complete roster of the squad will be ready for publication next week, Coach Barker said. By that time all the boys who have not yet joined the squad, but who plan to do so so when the school term opens, will also be working out.

We sat in the lounge by defeating their opponents Ralph Board and Guy Davis by identical scores. with our gracious hostesses and watched the rain as we ate a de- licious lunch. Only one foursome had com- pleted 18 holes so we agreed to take the standings from 14 holes of play and the results are: Mar. tinsburg 5 points; Charles Town 3. Low gross and low net were: Ann Eyler and Judy Licklider for Martinsburg and Polly Moore and Martha Smith for C. T. Thanks, think you're most likely to shoot for n, ine holes; you carry a little flag around the course while play. ing; when you have reached the score you chose, for nine holes you put down the flag; the one whose flag is farfl~est in from wins. Ginny Dorsey didn't put her flag down until number 10 fair- way and she was the winner. Mar- tha Smith won low putts. For the first time this year we had a small number of players-six-att- ending.

At the same time the Shepherds town team assurred themselves of at least a four-place post in the league standings with the opportunity to move up even higher before the end, when they scored an 11-6 victory over Cha- rles Town.

Halt, the two Longerbeam boy~ Hooe and Stoneberger, were all lost via graduation, while the other four have been lost through ineligibility either by age or studies. Howard Jackson, the new head coach of the Tiger squad said i Monday, the first full day he had worked out with the squad, that he had not had an opportunity to see just what the potentials are for a winning Tiger team this season. For more than a week assistant Varsity coach Judson Romine, Bob Rizzo, who ~1 be handling the Junior High grid program at Harpers Ferry, had been putting the 18-man Tiger squad through a pry-season conditioning pro- gran~ Then Monday morning when Coach Jackson arrived on the scene after complet,ing Sum- mer schooling at West Virginia University, the Tigers were start- ed on a three-session per day schedule. With two additional prospects having reported Monday morning the squad now numbers 20 but head coach Jackson s~id he ani.- cipates at least another four or five boys when the 1966-67 school term gets underway. With 14 of the 20 boys workitlg out having had either regular and reserve experience with last year's Varsity squad, Coach Jack son's Tiger team could provide a lot of headaches for many of the opponents on their 10-game sche- dule. But with their opening bat- fie set for Friday night, Sept. 2, at Strasburg (Va.) High School, the Tiger's don't have much time to get ready for a battle wl~ieh is, expected to be a tough one. The Strasburg eleven is expect- ed to be the best the Virginia School has had in years, with nine regt~lars back from last year's team. By holding three sessions dally, the first beginning at 8:30 a. m. .and the last ending around 5 p. m., Coach Jackson hopes to be able to find out quickly what the potentials of each man on the squad is and thus cast each into the position which he most likely will fit and play this season.
