1 Returning: Of Ed Shumate Will Bolster
Blue Dolphins' Hopes Of Successful Year
'. ; By Carroll Poplin i , - , : i :
Prospects for the 1945-46 swimming team are good, predicted
Coach Willis Casey as he begins his second season as head mentor
of the Blue Dolphins who are going after their third consecutive
unbeaten campaign. .
Coach Casev called a meetine of the
new prospects ' last week' and viewed
the turnout with a smile on his face.
.'' " '. Tough Schedule -
.With meets already definitely sche
duled with such potent pool outfits as
Army Navy, Cornell arid "Duke, the
Blue Dolphins will launch workouts
, beginning on September 24 which will
give them ample time to round into
shape before the first engagement
This year's edition of the Blue Dol
phins will be minus a few of the main
stays which carried the" swimming
squad through a perfect season last
year. Such stars as Billy' Kelly, Jesse
Greenbaum, Bill Ward, and Pete Hex
ner will be missing from the line-up.
' ' Shumate Returns ,
Coach Casey welcomed the returning
of Ed Shumate, star freshman swim
mer in 1941-42, who holds a discharge
from the Army Air Corps after seeing
considerable action overseas in the Pa
cific area. Shumate is Carolina's AAU
champion in all three strokes, back
stroke, breaststroke," and freestyle and
Casey hails him as one of the great
est swimming prospects that Carolina
has ever had. He will probably step
in and fill the suit that Billy Kelly
wore last year.
Bo Jenkins will be on hand to
strengthen the team's hopes in the
backstroke .department. Before com
ing to Carolina Jenkins was captain
of the tank team at Staunton Military
Academy and this summer was crown
ed Carolinas AAU backstroke cham
pion. He hails from Tarboro.
Another addition in the sprint divi
sion will be Toni Scheinam, who was
New York's Interscholastic 220 yard
Among last season's returning vets
will be Ben Ward, Dick Twining,
Mike Morrow, Jack Davies, J ohn Lord,
Tommy Gray, Bob Dungey, Jack Zim
merman, and Snookie Proctor.
Coach Casey expects around 27
swimmers to report for the opening
practice and drills are scheduled to be
held daily as the youthful mentor in

Phvs Education Discussed By

(Editor's Note: A part of the

"Journal of Health and Physical Edu
cation" by Clyde E. Mullis, Assistant
Professor of Physical Education.)
"Oh heck, I've got physical torture
next hour!" "And am I sore from
yesterday gee, ''I., wish that ole in
structor would give us a little rest once
in a while, all. we do is work, work,
and more work." And so the lingo
of colleges students goes from year to
year. Each in his own little way ai
rways has some gripe about that ter
rible required stuff down at the gym.
It's true that most of us aren't
thrilled to death when we have to get
up at seven and get ready to tramp
down to the gym or get up from a won
derful meal and make a two o'clock
phys. ed. class. We all have some
little grudge against this required
course, but in the long run I think
most of us are glad we had it. Maybe
we did learn a little something may
be we did build ourselves up in some
way maybe it was the right thing to
do after all. , - t $
Why's and Wherefore's
Here is just to prove the' ''why's
and wherefore's" of the physical ed.
course as it stands now at Chapel Hill.
It all began (that is, as we have it
today) back in 1936 when an extended
program in health and physical educa
tion was started by the University for
, the purpose of supplying to each stu
dent, on the basis of a thorough medi
cal examination, complete informa
tion about his physical welfare. This
program was designed to teach him

Doak To Direct
Bob "Peanut" Doak, a former foot
ball performer at State college who is
now at Carolina doing some graduate
work, will head the Carolina Jayvee
grid team this year, it was announced
over the weekend.
Doak, also a professional baseball
player, came here directly from
Greensboro, where he finished the sea
son with the Greensboro Patriot Club
in the Carolina League.
The State man of late finished sixth
in the league batting race, having hit
successfully in 16 straight games just
before the season ended, and he was
the only man o.n the Gate City team
to hit over .300. He hit at a .322 clip.
The "B" team, which will have a
membership of some 25 or 30 players,
will have a schedule of its own, and
three or four games are anticipated al
though no definite slate has been ar
ranged. These boys who are on the
Jayvee roster will be watched con
stantly by the entire staff and will be
liable for promotion at any timel '

lof en'ro-time recreation to every stu
dent according to his interest and abil-1
ity. Complete lacmties were set up
when the new Woollen gym was built
and an efficient staff was called in to
carry out this new and expanded pro
gram for physical training. ; ";
War Changed Course
Then when war came once again to
our country, the tides changed once
more in the department. The Univerr
sity had been selected for a Navy Pre
Flight school, a training center for V
12 students, and an enlarged program
for.the NROTC. War, as it always
does, changed the course of humanity
and that of the physical ed. student
at UNC. : ;
Since the Navy physical training
program calls for maximum physical
conditioning in " the shortest possible
time,1 activities sucn Jas badminton,
g6lf, handball, dancing, archery, ten
nis, horseshoe pitching, etc., gave way
to a program composed primarily of
sports such as wrestling, boxing, gym
nastics, tumbling, jspeedball, basket
ball,, swimming, military ' track, etc.
The appearance of Navy blue and
khaki on the campus and the effects
of war itself . had put the physical ed.
department on a more rugged and.
healthful basis geared to fit the times
of wartime America.'
Student Gets Opportunity
The program as it stands today,
gives every student an opportunity to
receive instruction, and to participate
in a variety of activities, which are
selected to give the participant vari-

Frosh Track Meet
Moved Back Week
The freshman track meet, orig
inally scheduled for last Saturday,
has been postponed until next Sat
urday, Bill McClammy announced
The obvious reason for the post
ponement was the torrential down
pours which have threatened to
flood Carolina for the last several
days. Freshmen not already signed
up for this track meet should see
Bill McClammy or Sam Daniels.
Coonration will determine other
freshman activities which the

To Use Saturdayj
CAMP LEE, Va. With less than
a week remaining before the season's
opening game with the U. of North
Carolina here, Coach Hooks Mylin is
busy polishing an offensive attack for
his Camp Lee Travellers.
Mylin staged several scrimmage
sessions this week and they served to
give him a pretty good indication of
the strong and weak points in the run
ning and passing attacks. At pres
ent he has 46 candidates undergoing
training, but the squad will be cut to
35 before the opener.
Hooks has selected two tentative
backfield combinations that may re
quire a little shifting. One unit
shapes up with Henry Ward,, ex-Oklahoma
high school coach as quarter
back; Ralph Rook, 18-year-old Iowa
youth, and'Lt. Joe Watt, former Syra
cuse ace, as halfbacks, and Al Dem
bow, of Slippery Rock Teachers' Col
lege, fullback. Dembow recently re
turned from overseas.
Captain Bill Symmes, ex-Citadel
center who is coaching the line, admits
that the forward wall prospects are
fair. The center and two tackle posi
tions are set, but the battle for the
end and guard jobs is wide open. Jay
Fidler, who starred at Brown, and
Johnny Aldridge, of Birmingham
Southern, are slated' as starting
tackles. Marty Martella, versatile
Penn State player, has the edge over
Bob Watkins, Moorehead College, for
the pivot post. '

60 Yards To Score
By Irwin Smallwood
The last roundup is at hand
for Coach Carl Snavely's Tar
Heel footballers as they so
through last minute drills this
week before the official season
opener Saturday at Camp Lee,
va., with the soldier eleven.
A final checkup scrimmage session
was held amidst mud and torrents of
rain Saturday, and although it was
held under adverse conditions, "It did
us a lot of good," Coach Snavely said
yesterday. The intra-squad affair
lasted for some hour and a half, and
as is the case in games in the rain,
a lot of kicking was done. Work was
done on passing and running alike,
end before the game was over, the
boys were able to hold on to the wet
pigskin fairly well. However, a good
bit of fumbling went on early in the
Three touchdowns were tallied dur
ing the course of the very wet after
noon, Bill Voris, hard plunging little
fullback, driving over for the first af
ter tackle Stan Marczyk recovered a
punt blocked by Ed Twohey. Bob Ken
nedy, one of the boys singled out by
Coach Snavely for improvement, made
a gallop of 60 yards after intercept
ing a pass for the second score, and
a pass from Don Clayton to Paul Riz
zo plus a run by Rizzo netted the third.
In addition to Kennedy, who also
scored once against State last week,
Coach Snavely said the defensive work
of the fullbacks, Voris and Joe Gurtis,
had improved; and the Tar Heel men
tor went on to say that such young
sters as Johnnie Colones, Bill Wardle,
Sid Varney and Leon Szafaryn were
looking better. Szafaryn, who is bat
tling Ted Hazelwood for a first string
tackle post, booted several extra
According to Coach Snavely, work
outs this week will lighten up a little
in view of the game with Camp Lee
Saturday, but outdoor practices are
still in order unless the already bad
weather takes a turn for the worse.
Practically the entire squad of some
60 boys will be taken to Camp Lee if it
is possible, as this is the last time the
Carolina lads will have a chance to
play before the collegiate opener with
Georgia Tech here September 29.
From this point on out, it will main
ly be a story of how the Tar Heels de
velop under fire, for nearly all the
practice that will amount to anything
has been completed with the first game
of the season just three days away.
Coach Snavely arrived on the scene
early in July and began immediately
working with the team, and a lot of
water has gone under the bridge since.
Only one week of rest has been taken
since that first session was held the
first week of July, and three full game
scrimmages have been held. This hard
work is definitely a credit to Coach
Snavely and his assistants, as well as
to the candidates for the varsity squad,
and they' have put out a lot of effort,
win or lose. Met in practice games
were State -Pre-Flight and PDC of
"We haven't played any of these
games with so much interest in win
ning," Coach Snavely pointed out yes
terday, "but more to give the boys a
chance to get more experience than
they would get in workouts among
themselves.' The silver haired Tar
Heel pilot continued that "as the sea
son starts, we are much further along
than if we had mot had these games."
He also said that in these tilts, a lot
of experimenting had beeni done, and
that this too had proved invaluable.
