Harriers Victorious Over Methodist College PAGE 5 By FRANK SASSER Methodist College fell toUNC-C 35-23 in a cross country meet on their course on Friday the 13th. Marth Fleming set a new DIAC record of 29:55 on a five mile course. This was 55 seconds better than the old conference record, also set by Marty Fleming. The previous record for Methodist’s course was 30:15; this was set by a Pembroke runner. Campbell College of Buies Creek, N. C. also ran in the meet. They ran only for practice in competition, however, and had no affect on the scores of Metho dist and unc-c. Again group finishing helped win a meet for the 4934s. Larry Mc Afee, John Lafferty, Mike Ridge, Woody Frick, and John Byrd fin ished in fourth through eithth pla ces respectively to leave theMon- archs only two of the prime scor ing positions. The harriers stiU remain unde feated in their three conference meets. Scoring Runners Team Has First Loss 1. Fleming UNCC 29:55 2. Hudson MC 30:14 3. Day vault MC 30:55 4. McAfee UNCC 31:13 5.

Gregory MC 35:40 No Team No Meet MARTY FLEMING The cross country teams opening home meet, scheduled for October 19 with Greensboro College, was cancelled by Greensboro last Thursday, because they were un able to develop enough interest this season in the sport. Dr. Murphy, Director of Athletic s, announced he was attempting to schedule another meet in its place. Unless the alternate meet is an nounced, the 49ers next outing will be with Lynchburg College, at Charlotte, October 23. Lynchburg and UNC-C are the only undefeated teams in DIAC, competition. The winner of this meet will go into the DIAC con ference meet favored to win. In two dual meets on Monday, October 9, the UNC-C cross country team received its first non conference victory and defeat of the season. “This is ridiculous. This is just ridiculous,’’ were the words of Mr. Brenton Steele, track coach, upon learning that the meet was to begin four minutes after the UNC-C harriers returned from jogging the two mile course which was to be run twice to make Davidson’s four mile course. The wildcats then easily outran the 49ers 19-39. This loss was partly compen sated for by the fact that David son defeated Western Carolina University 15-48 (15-50 being a perfect score) and that our run ners defeated WCU 19-37. In the running against WCU the 49ers finished first, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth. This group finishing has proved to be one of the boys’ stronger points. This gave the cross country team ,a 2-0 record in the conference and a 3-2 record overall. Scoring Runners 1. Puckett, John 2. Fleming 3. McLaughlin 4. Puckett, James 5. Phillips 6. Louthan 7.

An exclusive arrangement be tween UNC—C and the downtown central YMCA permits male stu dents of UNC-C to belong to the local “Y” at the reduced rate of $12.00 for 9 months. This arrange ment was worked out two years ago at the request of several students by Dr. Loy H. Witherspoon, Chap lain to the University. “This special arrangement enables our students to have full use of the recreational and gymnasium faci lities of the ‘Y’’’, Dr. Witherspoon said. “Especially in this interim period when our facilities are limited,’’ Witherspoon went on to say, “is this particularly bene ficial.’’ Two new classes have en rolled since the initial announce ment was made of the agreement.
