Contrary to popular rumor, the
Carolina baseball team has not been
banded for the season, and those 19
remaining games scheduled will be
played. Played, friend, in a murderous
frame of mind that will give the other
fellow no quarter.
Mr. Bunn Hearn of the local tobacco-chewing
forces, knowing full well
that catching, pitching, and hitting
weaknesses have cost him three
straight games, is experimenting
tese lax days between contests with
certain revisions on his squad.
The conclusion reached by inevitable
iznocent bystanders does not bode par
ticular joy for Michigan tomorrow.
Sophomore John "Lefty" Chesh
ire has taken the long walk from
monnd to bench in two games, each
time before theclose of the third
inning. His fire-balling tactics of
last season are hibernating at pres-
. A A. I
ent, bat intimate acquaintances
claim Lefty is just warming up to
become a mid-season tornado.
Little George Ralston did six in
nings of chunking Tuesday, proving a
few things besides the fact that Cor
nell has one of the finest ball clubs in
tie East Ralston had plenty of con
trol, gave up seven hits, and otherwise
played the role of relief pitcher in
Surprise of the lot has been Red
Benton, who's come up since the sea
son opened as Bunn's best hurler. Red
did everything but call in the Dies
committee against Harvard, and was
ahead of the game when he went out
in the eighth inning. Then a two-run
splurge in the ninth Radman pitching
gave Harvard a close one.
Because of behind-the-plate difficul
ties, it's a good bet right now that
Hearn will use George Stirnweiss
there when the need is most. Stirny
is just at home with a catcher's mitt
as he is with a football, and caught
several games last summer while
playing for a northern semi-pro
Bat taking George off second base
will break up one of the hottest in
field combinations -this side of the
New York Yankees. He and Matty
Topkins have developed a neat
knack of scooping up grounders,
making doable plays, and perform
ing similar diamond duties which are
dear to the hearts of all coaches.
Should George start catching and
he's been doing it in practice Jimmy
Howard will probably move over to
second, leaving Charlie Rich on third.
This might be the panacea the team
needed, in which event Duke had
kst beware in the three-game series
a month and a half hence.

ZETA PSI, TAKES
A variety of every type of play
ground ball play imaginable was pro
vided for the intramural fans yester
day afternoon as eighteen teams of
ficially opened their seasons. Of these
Sigma Nu, Zeta Psi No. 1, Phi Gamma
Delta, Town No. 1, Everett, SAE No.
1, Mangum, Phi Delta Theta No. 1,
and DKE were victorious.
Today's schedule calls for BVP to
make its first defense of its dormitory
crown against Grimes at-4 o'clock
while other outstanding games of the
day are Law School against "H", Ruf
fin No. 1 against MK", and Kappa Al
pha against Beta Theta Pi.
Defending champions for the past
two years, Zeta Psi No. 1 took its
nineteenth consecutive victory yes
terday afternoon as it stopped Lambda
Chi Alpha by a 10-2 score. The champs
got off to a shaky start in the first in
ning, allowing the losers their only
two runs, but then settled down under
the leadership of Wilson and pitcher
Mordecai to play fine ball.
Paced by the brilliant two-hit twirl
ing of Darden, SAE No. 1 served
warning to the rest of the fraternity
league that it would be one of the top
ranking teams as it shutout Sigma Chi
No. 2 by an 11-0 score. Darden was in
the peak of form as he allowed only
Williamson and Barnes to obtain
singles while walking none and strik
ing out six.
In its opening contest Everett ex
hibited one of the strongest dormitory
teams of the past few years, both of
fensively and defensively, as it
trounced Old East by a 12-2 score.
Pitcher Tommy Dill was the star of
the game for the winners as he set the
losers down with 6 hits while fanning
DKE inaugurated its season in a
very convincing manner by shutting
out St. Anthony by a 3-0 score. Alex
ander turned in a fine pitching job for
the winners as he set the Delta Psi
club down with five singles.
Big George Giamack started off on
the right foot again as he pitched
Mangum to a 4-1 victory over Steele.
Giamack was wild in walking eight
batters but the speed that he demon
strated throughout the game indicat
ed that he would be one of the best
hurlers on the campus this year.
Sigma Nu demonstrated the most
powerful offensive team of the day by
trampling ZBT by a 17-5 score. The
Snakes hopped onto pitcher Usdin in
the first inning for eight runs and for
the remainder of the game hit him

Carolina, Princeton Trackmen Clash Saturday
Eight 1939 Winners
Return For Meet
The number of returning first place
winners from last year's meet was
brought to eight, four for each side,
when Don Herring joined his Prince
ton teammates yesterday for his first
workout this spring. Their series of
spring track engagements standing at
one triumph apiece, the Tar Heels and
Tigers tangle on Fetzer field Satur
Carolina's victory last year by a
count of 69 2-3 to 56 1-3 came when
the Tigers were out of shape and com
paratively easy prey for what is now
considered the University's greatest
track team. The defeat was the only
loss Princeton has suffered on the
track in two years, and it appears that
the visitors will begin this season
with a good start.
Princeton won 76-50 in 1938, the
first year the Tigers came here to
spend their spring vacation rounding
into shape. - They went on through
the season undefeated. They were un
beaten last year except by Carolina.
Back from first places in the Carolina-Princeton
meet last spring are
Jimmy Davis, Tom Crockett, Harry
March and Dave Morison of the Tar
Heel forces, and Captain Anson Per-
ina, Paul Douglas, Jim Corbett and
Don Herring of Princeton.
Davis and Morrison finished to
gether, with clasped hands, in winning
the mile in 4:30.5. Crockett ran
away with the two mile in 9:41.8 to
set a new Fetzer field record, better
ing the mark of 9:51 he had set
against the same team in 1938. March
won the low hurdles, beginning a long
string of successive wins over the
The Tigers' returning first placers
are headed by Perina, for two years
IC4A broad jump champion. He holds
the local field record at 23 feet 5
inches, and came within a quarter
inch of that performance last year.
Douglas captained the Princeton
frosh team in 1938 and in his starting
varsity try beat his teammates and
Carolina opponents to win the quar
ter in :50.5. Corbett took the pole
vault at 11 feet, but will probably
have to jump higher to win this time.
Herring, who tossed the discuss 146
feet in the meet here in his first var"
sity meet and went on to reach 156'
2 1-4," may -compete Saturday. He
is backed up by Bruce Alger, senior
who threw 132 feet to win here in
IN WOOLLEN GYM
Fencers from all parts of the South
will flock to Chapel Hill today for
the South Atlantic tournament which
begins tomorrow morning at 9 in
Woollen gym." Registration headquar
ters will be set up in the gym lobby
all afternoon and night today.
The meet, the first of its kind
ever held, will be open to the public
all day Friday and Saturday morning.
It will be a three-weapon affair

KENTUCKY, GA. TECH
The tournament will hardly be a
one-sided affair, for the smaller
schools entered present serious threats.
Georgia Tech and Kentucky rank
high in Southern fencing. The Jack
ets have for years been a stronghold
of the Southeast, along with Ken
tucky. Both are primed for this meet,
anxious to get a long-awaited crack
at tournament honors.
The Tar Heels fought the Tech
men twice in '38 and Kentucky once
then. Carolina won all three meets.
Since then, there have been no meets
between the Tar Heels and Kentucky
or Georgia Tech. However, it is prob
able that both teams will be on the
Coached by Richard Morenus, the
Tech team is good. Already this year
they have hung up a "fine record. The
team is led by a three-year veteran,
Steve Bartha, who caused the Caro
lina fencers no end of trouble at At
lanta two years ago. In addition,
there are C. P. Ivey and C. C. Davis,
two very adept fencers. All are three
Hermson May Play
At Catching Post
Bunn Hearn is not planning rash or
drastic action within the near future.
Although the Carolina baseball
team has lost three games in a row,
he does not intend to shoot the players
and make a fresh start with new vol
unteers nor is there any truth to the
news that Hearn will disband the club
for the season and make the fresh start
next spring. Even Mr. Beerman will
tell you that in his column in practical
ly the same words. Great minds, etc.
Hearn was a bit distressed at the
none too distinguished season begin
ning of the Tar Heels, but he was not
particularly worried. He had no fears
that the let-down would be season
long and was positively indignant at
any suggestion along those lines.
"We've had some bad breaks. But
these boys will snap out of it. They're
young players and the attack of bad
baseball can't last forever. ' I think
they can pull out of the slump and
probably be a better team for it. That
is often the case with college teams.
I'm not too worried about the losing
"We like to win them all, but these
games really don't count in the con
ference standings. We've been experi
menting in these games, making some
player changes we probably won't be
doing once we swing into conference
Did Hearn plan any changes for to
morrow when the Tar Heels start a
two-game weekend meeting Michigan?
W&L follows Saturday).
"I may make some changes. I think
IH probably give Bob Hermson a
chance behind the bat. Bob's a big
strong boy. Hell work one of the
weekend games. I may also use Popeye
Jones in left-field.
IN FINAL MATCH

There will come a day when the
Carolina tennis team loses a match.

no one will blame them.

The duty of reporting tennis meets
in Chapel Hill is pleasingly monoto

paper there is a standard headline:
"Carolina Netmen Down 9-0."

All of which is a tribute to John
Kenfield, the court coach who has been
around here for nearly two decades.

in particular, Scott D. Breckinridge,

Breckinridge is a very fast man, and
leader in two weapons for the Ken
tucky swordsmen. He also presented
a pretty solid front against the Tarj
Heels two years ago in a meet here.
Johns Hopkins was beaten by Car
olina at Baltimore 15-12 this year in
the third from the lffiast bout of the
meet. It was close all the way. The
