Denison vs. Sherman
Jackets-Bearcats Tangle Tonite in Annual Battle
5,000 to Jam Park Stadium
players are ready, the fans are ready. The seats are ready.
In fact everyone and everything, but perhaps a pair of coaches,
were ready for the game that annually means the difference between a
successful season and a failure.
answer is the Denison-Sherman battle at Munson field tonight, with the
opening kickoff slated for 8 o'cloc although the field gates will be
opened to spectators an hour and a half earlier - at 6:30 p.m.
the table stakes in front of them and all the blue chips down Denison's
powerhouse and Sherman's unpredictable eleven took their last workouts
Thursday afternoon and were in the pink of condition, with the Jackets
seeking their fourth win in the last quarter century and the Bearcats
attempting to prevent it.
outfits were reported in first class condition for the yearly battle
with both sides having all their men, good and bad, in find fettle for
the setto that means both the continuance of a long grudge between the
two schools and the possiblity of winning the district championship -
if the winner tonight can get over tough opposition in Gainesville
later in the season.
Veterans Are Ready
disabled veterans, Bill Hempkins and Eugene Schleuse, both walking with
limps the past week or more, were back in shape and will start.
Schleuse plays his final game against the Bearcats, as does Roy
McCorkle, Larry Phillips. Ed Poulter, Ed Harris, and a few substitutes
who were more than likely will not be used when the coaching staff
attempts to win the third time in five years.
top of all that Denison will be fighting to maintain its record of
never having been defeated on Munson field. Sherman fans
think differently and repots have it there is plenty of cash back of
their thinking. Most of it has been matched by Jacket backers'
outfits will feature hard running backs. Denison will give the
Bearcats a glimpse of the smashing Roy McCorkle, Ed Harris and
Phillips, while Sherman can boast fine runners in Emil Hatfiield,
Maurice Bryso and Leon Pelly, the latter mixing a bit of passing and
some good booting on the side.
than 5,000 fans were exptected to jam Munsion field in an attempted to
be seated where only 4,200 seats are available. 1,750 seats were
added for the game, along with reserved seat sections on Denison
and Sherman sides of the field.
