SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 17. 1945
This afternoon's football classic between Carolina and Wake Forest in
Kenan Stadium will mark the 41st time the two teams have met in one of the
oldest rivalries in the nation. The first game dates 'back to 1888, the year
that football started at Caroling and the Tar Heels were' beaten by the
Since then Carolina has gotten herT
share of the victories and the record
now stands with the Blue and White
clad team holding 30 wins against
nine setbacks and. one contest re
sulted in a scoreless tie.
Last season Wake Forest, which
had one of the strongest all-civilian
teams in the country, gaining a 7-0
decision over the Tar Heels in the
opening game of the 1944 campaign.
During Coach Carl Snavely's two
year stayat Carolina back in 1934
and '35, the Tar Heels rolled over the
Deacons 21-0 and 14-0. Today the
"Silver Fox" will send an underdog
Carolina team on the field as far as
the ratings go, but the master of the
grid game has been tuning his forces
for an upset today, so watch out.
Don't sell the Deacons short, be
cause they have nine veterans back
that held first string posts last sea
son and on top of that they have been
enjoying a two-week lay-off, which
means that they should be in top
physical condition for today's battle,
despite the recent flu epidemic that
hit the Wake Forest camp.
This afternoon's contest may turn
out to be a pitching duel between
Carolina's Tom Gorman and the Dea
cons' Nick Sacrinty. Sacrinty made
All-Southern tailback in 1943 and has
been the spark-plug for Wake Forest
this season. He personally accounted
for three touchdowns . against both
Duke and State and has been hitting
his receivers with' an average of .644
to place him among the top Singers
in the nation.
Rattling Off Prattle: Vieing for a
position on the Tar Heels' starting
backfield is Chunk Simmons, son of
Floyd Simmons who was assistant
coach to Dr. Otis Lamsen back in
1907 .... Simmons is due to see a
lot of action today, so keep your eyes
glued on this fast and shifty runner
because he might pull a Norcross feat
of last Saturday.
Buster Stevenson, first stringer on
the 1943 cage outfit, has been dis
charged, from the Navy and plans to
enter school on Monday. This should
be a big boost to Coach Carnevale's
hopes of producing another Southern

Ransonmeji Topple Duke by Score of 20?39
On Carolina Course: Cold Rain
By Bob Friedlander
Racing through a sea of mud over he three and one-half mile cross
country course last Wednesday afternoon the Tar Heels defeated Duke by a
zu to 4 score, in a reran engagement wiin tne ciue vevus.
Coach Ranson is fielding an eleven man squad in this afternoon's meet with
State'. Starting during the first quarter of todays footbaU game, the race
will begin and finish at Kenan Stad-?
ium. Only one morej contest remains
on the schedule after, the meet to
day, the Virginia fray December 1.
To date only the defeat at Annapolis
has marred an otherwise perfect
In view of the treacherous condi
tion of the track, the times that were
turned in Saturday were excellent.
Duke's Jim Davis, in beating Bob
Dodson by over twenty yards, covered
the distance in 19:54, one of the fast
est collegiate times ever recorded for
the course. Charlie Beetham, former
National track champion and once
attached to the Pre-Flight School
here, is credited with the best time
ever performed over the Carolina
Four more Tar Heels, Art Lamb,
George Harris, Frank Hatch, and Bill
Chafin finished close on Dodson's
heels. O. A. Allen, Jack Strait, and
Jack Hester finished eighth, eleventh
and fourteenth respectively, to round
out the eight-man team. Unofficial
runners for Carolina were Bob Eagle,
Mack Hobkirk, and Jim Bolch.
s The rain, which had been coming
down steadily before the race, turned
into a downpour just before the
start. It is doubtful that the runners
ever ran under more unfavorable
conditions. The mud was ankle deep
as the soaked tracksters negotiated
the final lap of the course. Only about
a mile and a half, though, is along
the trails, the rest of the route fol
lowing dirt roads.
Daily practice for the indoor sea
son is continuing, with Coach Ranson
still on the lookout for promising
material. It is too early to make any
predictions for the campaign, but if
past Carolina track teams are any
indication, the cindermen should be
in for a good season.

White Phantoms was about chosen as
the week's practice ended yesterday
afternoon, and accelerated work is on
deck for next week with the season
opener less than three weeks away.
"We are still on fundamentals,'
Coach Ben Carnevale said yesterday
"We have had half-court scrimmages
and have been working on passing,
shooting and defense, but next week
we plan to get down to harder work,
including full-court scrimmage ses
Included on the probable varsity
squad are five lettermen and three old
Carolina players who have just re
turned from the armed service. Mono
gram men are Jim Jordan, high "scor
ing second string Ail-American last
year, John Dillon, hook shot artist,
Bob Paxton, Don Anderson and Ira
Norfolk. Jim White, Jim Hayworth
and Taylor Thorne played for the
Phants back in 1942 and 1943.
Several new men also occupy tenta
tive berths on the roster, Vinny De-
lorenzo, Roger Sholbe, John Fields and
Miles. Red Hughes and John Greg
ory, 'B' team men last season are also
included. Buster Stevenson, from
Winston-Salem and another former
Phantom, is expected to enter school
next week, as is Ralph Dayvault, a
Kannapolis boy who did some fresh
man playing for Wake Forest before
entering the service.

Monday afternoon at 4;30 o'clock for
, an organizational meeting, head Coach
Chuck Quinlan announced to the Tar
Heel yesterday. All candidates are
asked to report in street clothes Mon
day. This meeting is an all-important af
fair,' as it is hoped that regular prac
tice sessions will be started Tuesday
or Wednesday afternoon. All classes
are wide open, with but few squad
members from last season back.
Quinlan, in his 20th coaching year
at Carolina, embarks on his first any
where near big season since the war,
Monday, and in reporting to the Tar
Heel yesterday he made it clear that
it was essential that all students in
terested show up at the meeting Mon

Hooper, captain of the crew last year,
the top-notch grappler having re
ceived his commission in the October
graduation of the NROTC. However,
several men will be on hand who saw
some action last year and some who
were out but failed to make the team.
Too, Art Bleuthenthal, regular for
Quinlan in 1941, is back from the
armed service, as is Wiley Long, a
squad man from a couple of years
back who is also just recently dis
charged from the army air forces.
The season this year will be a con
siderable bit more active than last,
with an already six-meet slate replac
ing the three-contest agenda of 1944
45. Duke and Navy were the only
foes last year, but Duke, Georgia Tech
and Virginia are now on the schedule
on a home and home basis.
There is a good possibility that two
or more meets will be added a little
later, but there is nothing definite as
yet. Virginia Military Institute is a
prospect for more meets, as are sev
eral of the other North Carolina
schools if they resume the mat sport
Last year the Tar Heel wrestlers
lost all three of the matches, two to
Duke and one to Navy. This was the
worst showing in history of a Caro
lina wrestling1 team, but it is antici
pated that the squad this year will be
able to do a considerable bit better.
Coach Quinlan will be on hand to
get a look at all the prospects, and
the regular drills should be well un
derway by the end of the week. Work
outs will be held five days a week to
start, and the practice hour will be de
cided upon at the meeting Monday.
