BEAT WAKE FOREST! eel BEAT WAKE FOREST! an SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 17. 1945 PAGE THREE Sports y- 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 Deacs, 6-4. 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 CALL Hardee's Woodyard For All Kinds of Wood. o Hardee's Woodyard Carrboro, N. C.

Monogram Club Is Against Vandalism The Monogram Club held their first meeting in Navy Hall Thursday eve ning. Dick Jente, president of the University Club, and Dale Ranson, track and cross country coach, were guests at the meeting. The members of the club discussed the problem of destruction of proper ty that characterizes the days pre ceding the Duke-Carolina games.-. President Jack Davies says that the Monogram Club is absolutely against any' form of vandalism before the game and assures students that the team hopes that the student body will conserve its energy to outcheer Duke on November 24.

Locals Battle Deacs Today (Continued from first page) an afternoon of hard-fought football, with Wake Forest's Sacrinty and Carolina's Tom Gorman locking horns in passing duels. Norcross will take care of most of the running for the Tar Heels, and Sacrinty will do the same for the Deacs. Norcross to Start Coach Snavely's starting Norcross at the tailback spot today is by no means an indication that Gorman is being replaced. On the other hand, it appears to be the object of the 'Silver Fox' to hold Gorman back until the psychological moment. Gorman is much more experienced than Nor cross, and ne undouDtedly will see plenty of action during the course of the afternoon. It will be the first time this season that the Baptists have put in a per formance in this section, and at the time of this writing, it appeared that the standouts of both aggregations would be ready to take the field at game time. Advantage for the Deacons comes in the fact that they have been idle for two weeks, and really three with a breather in the slate two weeks ago. This, of course, is in addition to their superiority in experience and posses sion of really outstanding individuals offensively.

Today 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 record. 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 trails. 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.

Varsity Cagers Will Accelerate Work Next IWeek The 'A' squad of the basketbal 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 sions. 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. Coaches Carnevale and Pete Mullis send their charges into action for the first time Pecember 5, against Camp Lee, Va. The game is set for Woollen gym and will be the first of 13 already scheduled home encounters. E-type War Bonds mature in 10 years at 1 the cost price.

LEDBETTER-PICKARD BUY NOW Mat Recruits Meet Monday In Gymnasium Quinlan to See Group at 4:30 All men interested in varsity wrest ling this winter will meet in the wrestling room of Woollen gymnasium 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 day afternoon. Gone this season will be big Laurie 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 this season. 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. ton, Notre Dame will be met November 24 and Tulane December 1. The con tests are carried on through postal service, and Lt. (jg) R. C. Marker is supervising officer for Carolina. Gun ner's Mate 2c Joe Grcich is coach of the team. 1
