White Phantoms Lose Rough Contest to Midshipmen, 42-39
Maryland Terps Score
Win Over Mittmen
Dolphins Swamp W&L Swimmers, 63-12
By Earle Hellen
Sweeping all nine first places and
taking seven seconds, the Blue Dolphins
swamped the Washington and Lee
swimming team, 63-12, yesterday in
Bowman Gray pool in a meet which was
dedicated to "Big Bill" Thompson,
former Carolina swimmer who was the
first Carolina graduate to lose his life
in the present war.
Six dual meet records and one Uni
versity mark were shattered by the
Dolphins as they won with compara
tively ease, the Generals getting only
two second places.
Memorial Exercises for Thompson
Before the diving event short me
morial services for Thompson were con
ducted by athletic director, Bob Fetzer.
Co-captains George Coxhead and Jim
Barclay of the Dolphins placed a
wreath at the foot of the water foun
tain memorial at the end of the pool.
Denman Hammond, Pete Hix, Johnny
Feuchtenberger, Henry Ortland, Art
Henderson, Priest of the Washington
and Lee team, all members of the Phi
Delta Theta fraternity of which
Thompson was a member, and Captain
Webster of W&L served as a guard of
Billy Stone set the only University
mark of the meet when he won the
400-freestyle in 5:35.4. It was Stone's
first victory of the year and also set
a new dual meet record. Stone took
the lead at the beginning and came
home ahead of his teammate Andy
Weiss, by a large margin.
Nicholson Wins Diving
Don Nicholson and Johnny Feuchten
berger put on a great individual dual
in the diving with Nicholson winning
by .15 of a point. Nicholson's score
was 104.88 and Feuchtenberger's
Although he didn't try for the na
tional mark, Denman Hammond set
a dual meet record in the 150-meter
backstroke with a time of 1 : 55.5. Ham
mond, who was high scorer of the meet
with 10 points, also took first in the
Ortland Sets Dual Meet Record
Plucky little Henry Ortland came
in first in the 200 breaststroke to set
a new dual meet record of 3:13.1. Ort
land was pushed all the way by Ma
hates of the Generals, but he had the
necessary sprint in the final 50 meters
to pull away from Mahates who fin
ished second, by 20 feet.
Other dual meet records were set by
Co-captain Barclay in the 200-free-Pete

To W&M, 35-31
Amazing themselves, the coaches,
and the spectators the coed varsity
swimmers whipped through the home
pool in fine style to finish, only four
points behind William and Mary 31-35
yesterday in their first intercollegiate
Though William and Mary's Ann
Monihan, national junior 440-meter
champion, captured three firsts, the
Tar Heels really lost the meet in the
diving in which they had short prac
tice. Virginia Wilson gathering 44.56
points in six dives, three required and
three optional, won first place over
teammate Edna Longworth, whose
34.93 placed her three one-hundredths
of a point ahead of Carolina's Polly
Durham with 34.90.

In Glass Meet
The Carolina track squad is going
to have its hands full retaining its
championship in the Southern confer
ence indoor games in Woollen gym on
February 28, but the performances
of several of the top-ranking men on
the Tar Heel team in recent interclass
meets have brought hopeful encourage
ment to those interested in the for
tunes of the Blue and White clad run
ners. Interclass Review
A brief review of the interclass bat
tles shows that such Tar Heel depend
ables as Warren Mengel, Co-captains
Roy Cathey and Dick White, Mike
Wise, Ike Taylor, Percy Ashby, Jim
Lloyd, Rich Van Wagoner, Wimpy
Lewis, Mike Mangum and Jim Kelley
are primed and ready to go.
Mengel was a very adept "jack of all
trades" in the two meets as he won top
honors in the hurdles and broad jump
and second place in the shot put. His
hurdle winning performance was equal
to Mike Mangum's winning nine flat
time in the conference high hurdles
run last year and his broad jump was
but a couple of inches short of his sec
ond place performance in the 1941 in
door games. Mangum incidentally
turned- in practically the same time
in the hurdles and will be out to repeat
last year's win over his blond teammate.
Cathey and Wise are Aces
Cathey and Wise in the half-mile,
three-quarter mile, 330 and 660-yard
runs have been unexcelled in the past
couple of weeks' hard work and will
be hard to beat on the Woollen boards
next week. These two speed stars are
also the two big guns on the mile re
Van Wagoner is being counted on to
take the mile run for the Tar Heels,

(Special to The Daily Tar Heel)
ANNAPOLIS, Md Feb. 21. The
traveling White Phantoms, fresh from
a win over Maryland, received a set
back at the hands of a strong Navy
team here tonight in a nip-and-tuck
affair that went into an overtime per
iod. The final score was 42-39.
Captain Bob Rose set the scoring
pace for the visitors netting five field
goals and two charity throws for a to
tal of 12 points. Reid Suggs, Tar Heel
guard, sank five twin-pointers for 10
markers and runner-up honors. Bill
Busik, Navy's all-round athlete, led
the Middies in scoring with 13 tallies
made on six field tosses and a free
shot, while teammate Zoeller was
marking up 12 tallies for the winners.
At the end of the regular contest
the count was knotted at 36-alI but
in the extra period Navy loosed Hunt
erton on the visitors and the depend
able forward responded by hitting the
hoop for four points and, aided by a
free shot by Busik, gave Navy the
match after a hard-fought contest.
Captain 'Rose fouled out of the
rough-and-tumble game with six min
utes left to go and the Tar Heels lost
George Paine by the same route a min
Carolina led at the half, 17-9, but
the Middies came back strong in the
first portion of the second period to
close the gap and necessitate the over
time. Varsity Box Score

Captain Johnston Wins
In the 127-pound bout Johnston
floored Lincoln twice in the opening
stanza with hard rights to the head.
Lincoln recovered each time and came
back swinging both fists furiously but
the smooth-working Johnston kept his
man at bay with a looping right. In
the last round the Maryland fighter
was hanging on as Johnston almost
floored him with a flurry of rights
and lefts and won the match with ease.
Leon McCaskill flashed a polished
defense and used a hard left jab to the
head in winning from Pat Quinn in
the 155-pound bout.' McCaskill fought
cagily using his left to the head and
right to the body marking up enough
points in the early stages of the match
to take his first win in two starts.
Higdon Wins 165 Bout
The final Tar Heel point was made
by Lyman Higdon in the 165-pound
slugfest. Maryland's Johnny Gilmore,
loner-armed footballer, used his in
fighting to a good advantage in the
first round, keeping Higdon from land
ing a solid blow with any degree of
effectiveness. Higdon landed a swing
ing right to the head that floored Gil
more in the third round and this blow
decided the close affair.
Maryland's Joe Cicala gave the visi
tors their first win in the opening
bout winning a TKO over little Jack
Kurtz in 1:19 of the first round. Ci
cala tossed a right to Kurtz's body
soon after the bout started and referee
Joseph McGuigan stopped the match

Tom Jones, Maryland's classy 135
pound fighter tossed leather with both
hands at Carolina's Jimmy Fennell and

a punishing right to the jaw. Fennell
exchanged rights with Jones in the
opening round and landed several good
blows but went down under a shower
of punches early in the second.
Hotsy Alperstein hardly got warm
ed up before he dropped Carolina's
Earl Bruton in 33 seconds of the initi
al round. Bruton landed a few easy
punches on Alperstein at the start but
the calm Alperstein waited his chance
then waded in with the ruinous punch.

With that all important date
Don't ever give the impression

And you'll make sure you make a hit
With that all important "skirt!"
