Area Meet To Be Hell
At Tech Field Tomorros
Last week the Roundup was talk-
ing things over with Mrs. E J.
Lowrey, athletic director, and the
talk got around to three-sport let-
Mr. Lowrey dug into his files and
«wne up with a list of these letter-
men. Since 1936, “L’s” in the three
major sports-football, basketball
and tra'ck have beejn awarded to 17
boys. Of these, three have won
three “L’s’’ two years straight—
Robert Brewer in 1941-42-43, Milner
Thorne in 1940-41-42, and James
Barker in 1938-39-40.
The other lettermen include Har-
old Ingley, Virgil Simmons, and
Orville Oden in 1936-37 and Henry
Ford and Jack Ware in 1937-38.
Barker was the only three-sport
letterman in 1938-39. In 1939-40,
two boys won three awards, Bar-
ker and Joe Tyson, and in' 1940-
41 Milner Thorne and Carl San-
dars did it. 1941-42 produced five
outstanding- athletes. Thorne again
lettered three times along with Ro-
land “Tuffy” Nabors, j. d. Mil-
ner, Douglas “Primo” McCurry and
There were no threehsport letter-
men in 1943-44, but 1944-45 again
saw three lettermen, Charles Pres-
ley, R. w. Moyers and George
Brewer, little brother to Robert.
It takes an athlete to win a let-
ter in each of three sports. Foot-
ball and basketball letter require-
ments include 48 to 32 minutes,, res-
pectively, of conference play plus
the coaches’ approval. In fact, you
have to place in the regional track
meek to win an “L”, and that isn’t
This year there are three boys
in L. H. S. who can win three
L/s and be among the elite group.
Gerald “Dingy’’ Davis/Stony Wall,’
and Jack Alderson have lettered in
football and basketball and are on
the track team. “Dingy’’ has let-
tered two years in football and
basketball but has not yet done it
in track. Stony has lettered twice
in football and Jack once; in each.
These boys have another year to
