Today is a big day in the Virginia-Carolina football series,
and for this the 50th anniversary of the first meeting of the Tar
Heels and Cavaliers the some 20,000 fans expected to be present
should see one of the best games of the season. The Virginia
eleven has been beaten only once this year, and the Tar Heels
have lost five, but the visitors' lighter schedule has had a lot to do
with it. And the Snavelymen, who have been on the upgrade all
year, will be hard to get by, agreed.
This is THE big day for the alum-

Day treat, the climax to the season.
However, in recent years, the tradi

the ginger out of the tilt with the Old
Dominion lads. The game today,
though, promises to be very well at

it will be as close as all the other
home games the Tar Heels have played
this year. . . . And as a matter of rec

It might bewell to note that this

battles between the model T foot
ball and the traditional single wing.

the experts will find a fast, hard-driving
Virginia running attack, plus
some good passing by one Charlie
Ellis. That gives good possibilities of
today's skirmish turning into an aerial
battle, for Carolina's Tom Gorman
is expected to be used extensively in
his familiar passing role. x Gorman,
it may be remembered, engineered the
great drive for a score against Duke
last week, completing four for six
passes to carry the Tar Heels from
their own 33 over the goal. It was

Next on the agenda comes a little
speculation on the national game
of games, that the annual Army
Navy tussle in Philadelphia's Muni
cipal stadium. Army is riding on
the brink of 17 victories in a row,
including one over the Middies last
year, and the men who are supposed
to be in the know are, picking the
Cadets to roll up quite a score.
Navy has great possibilities, but
the Midshipmen have been ragged
more than once this season, and we

This opening game with Camp Lee
promises to be one of the best of the
season at home, and the Virginia
soldiers sport about the fastest club
in the section. The Camp Lee team is
led by George Senesky, All-American
at St. Joseph, as well as several other
top-notch college stars. It promises to
be a big test for the Tar Heels, who
walked off with Southern Conference
honors last year.
In the game last Wednesday after
noon, a formal tilt although not official,
John Dillon, hook shot artist, was high
man for the Phantoms, dropping in a
total of 20 markers. He was followed
by AU-American Jim Jordan, who hit
the hoop for 13 points. Vinny Deloren
zo added eight more, and Bob Paxton
accounted for seven. Other than the
scoring of Dillon and Jordan, there
were no standout performances, the
game being primarily to iron out last
"We were playing a good team Wed

Leatherman Drills Boxers
In Daily Practice Sessions
Though without a coach at present
time the 1946 edition of the University
of North Carolina boxing team has
started work for the forthcoming sea
son with letterman Del Leatherman
serving as coach.
Regular coach Joe Murnick left last
season to join the Navy and the posi
tion of boxing coach has been vacant
since that time. No definite plans have
been made with regard to filling this
position, Leatherman will attempt to
get the boxing aspirants in shape with
daily drills set for 4:30 in the Woollen
Gym's boxing camp.
Two lettermen and 13 new men are
working out with Leatherman in daily
practice sessions. Jim Lodge, a Ma
rine, fighting in the 135 pound class
and Joe Mallard, ROTC, tossing the
leather last season in the 155 pound
class, are the holdovers from last sea
son's versatile pugilists.

taken over the duties of coach in order
to set the stage for the boxing season

Squad To Meet
Coach Dale Hanson's once-beaten
Tar Heel cross country track, team will
officially bring its season to a close
here this afternoon, meeting the Uni
versity of Virginia runners in con
junction with the football game slated
between UNC and the Cavaliers.
The dual meet, Carolina's eighth
this season, will get undez-vay during
the first quarter of the football game
and end during the second quarter.
It will cover the three and five eights
mile course through the country
around the stadium.
For Carolina, the Southern con
ference has already been won, but
this meet today offers the only re
maining obstacle before the local run
ners in their try for all southern cross
country honors. Coach Ranson's crew
has turned back Georgia Tech twice,
Duke twice, State once and Cherry
Point, while losing a lone meet to
Navy's championship team.
Leading the field for Carolina will
be Bob Dodson, lanky half-miler of
the spring track team last year, who
turned in one of the best times of re
cent years in beating State college two
weeks ago. Too, running for the Tar
Heels will be Oliver Allen, Jim Bolch,
W. T. Chafin, Bob Eagle, G. P. Harris,
Frank Hatch, Jack Hester, Mack Hob-
kirk, John Strait and Art Lamb. Only
seven of these men will run officially.
