LEESBURG - Today at 4 o'clock the Leesburg Yellow Jackets by the lost of Williams at center
and Baldwin at left tackle, will attempt to take the measure of the Winter Garden aggregation.
Baldwin is to be out of the lineup for the balance of the season having been called home to the
bedside of his seriously ill mother in Ohio. Williams who was injured in the Plant City game; is
still on the crippled list and some doubt was expressed as to whether he will be able to practice
even next week. Jenkins and Moore have both been bothered in the scrimmages with bad
knees but will be in the lineup when the badly bruised nose during the week's practice but has
completely recovered from the infected foot that bothered him last Friday.
Coach Banning has been working overtime developing "Red" Smith and R. Polk to fill the spots

Two years ago, the Yellowjackets defeated the Winter Garden team by a score of 62 to 0 and
last year beat them by a score of 12 to 0. Eustis has beaten the Winter Garden players this year
by a 6 to 0 score which according to sports was a battle that on yardage they should have won.
Eustis plays Leesburg on Thanksgiving day at Eustis and today's game should be a fair
indication of the comparative strength of the two teams. Winter Garden has practically its entire
team back and a game between the two veteran teams should produce some real football.
Leesburg will star: Brown, qb; Jenkins, fb; Adams, rh; Cahill, lh, Smith, c; Moore, lg; Polk, lt;
Milam, rg; Entz, rt; Roundtree, re, and Ling, le.
