CHARLES TOWN HIGH'S hard-running and sure-tackling Panthers who came up with a brilliant team-eflort last Satur- day as they outclassed the Colo- nels from James Wood, had a real ace up t'heir sleeves in Quarterback Larry t~urns who is fast becoming one of the sec- :tion's finest ali-around quarter- backs. When Burns wasn't send- ing his backs through the line for good yardage, he was eft.her slanting through the line him- self with the pigskin for sizable gains or pa~ing with extreme accuracy to his backs and ends or running the ball himself. Hustling Jerry Frye was terrific for the locals on pass defense, intercepting two of James Wood tosses and carrying them back for good gains. The all-around work of 'the 'big boys' up front was the best that we have seen in some time and now if they'll only take this same kind of per- formance and team effort to Martinsburg, c~me Friday, Oc- tober 23--your humble servant will have a short winter--and good Old Santa will have al- ready delivered 'his present to us for 1959.s ...... THE FUR IS CERTAIN to fly--sky high; come Saturday afternoon ~t Shepherd's new football stadium when the Rams and the Catamounts from Poto- mac State tangle in the big home-coming game before a crowd which should easily reach the 2,500 mark. Festivities be- gin early Saturday, so why not get the old bus shined up and head for Shephevdstown for a big day of events and enter- tainment. :;: STOPPING OFF FOR a short while here last Saturday was Teddy ~eiler one of the slick- eat-fielding shortstops ever to pull on a pair of spike,shoes at Charles Town's Legion Park.. Ted; now an assistact footbal~ coach at Randolph-Macon Col- lege at Ashland, Va., was on a scouting mission at Westmin- ster, Md., to .take a look at Wes- tern Maryland College. Ted was passing out cigars and telling ,his friends all about his new so~, ~Steven Lee, who was born last Thursday. Ted and Nancy al- ready have one child, a daugh- ter, Tedi-Lynn who is about two years old. Looking in the best of condition as he always does, Ted said that he will probably play some baseball next sum- mer. WESTERN UNION in Los I TH[ MELVIN T.

Then a iPaSS p~y from Charles Branson to Clare~nce ~Branson~provided ~'ae extra point. The Spar,tans sealed ,their tri- umph in he fourth ,period when quarterback Dick Stephenson fired a 25-yard scoring pass tm Bernard Bailey. Tony Washing,ton was a trem- endous defensive performer 'for Page Jackson along w~,bh Thomas Creamer, N~pper, David Gran-, Buddy Wins~on, Ed Kidriek Charles Br~nson, Clarence ,Bran- son and Venmng Johnson. Clarence Br~nson, playing safe ty intercepted four Parker Gray passes and Johnson a.lso pulled in an enemy aerial. Offe~ns~vely, Taylor was provided wi~h good rushing by James Carr, Branson, Ra~l,ph C~linton and Q. D. Fleming, a sophomore fullback making his first scarf. I The Shepherd College Rams pro ved conclusively ~aturday a~fter- :noon ~t Elkins, that ,the game is never over un,til ,~he final whistle has blown when wi.t~h on~ly ~vo minu, tes left in ,the ball game and ,trailing 6-0, they came up ~h ~wo quick ,touchdowns ~o turn de- feat into a 12-6 West Virgima Con ~erence v~otory over Davis-Elk.ins College.

AS CHARLIE TAIT of the Winchester Star pointed out here last Saturday, if there's any such think as having an Indian sign on another club, the Pan- thers have it on the James Wood Cohmels.
