Duke Cheerleaders, Rooters Smother Campus With ' We'll Beat Ole Carolina' Atmosphere By Barron Mills (Woman's Auditorium, Duke University, Nov. 21) "We'll get Choo-Choo. . . . . We'll get Choo-Choo," The slow, long-drawn-out war chant thick ened the atmosphere as the Duke Pep Rally began Thursday night. They began patting xneir soies on the stage and the band maestro's horn-rims slipped down his nose adjusting his eyes from the music to the members, and raised his fz f 7 baton finger. Since we were just two flf Heel LO'LaptaiUS refugees from a nearoy university we i just sat back to watch the clowning. ! A coed beside us gave me the once over. I adjusted my tie, pretending not to notice, and crossed my legs. Our eyes met reading the large "W.G." letters on my athletic socks. I cleared my throat and explained, "Madam, you are not looking at the President-elect of the "Wooden Gobblins." Chesterfield Salute The band hit a few notes and the cheerleaders bombarded the stage. The head leader did a "Frankie" with the mike and began. "I know that all of you heard the Chesterfield program the other ; night when they saluted Georgia and ... (at this point he grabbed -his nose and repeated the word that sent undergraduates scam pering) . . . Carolina." The cheerleaders decided that be fore making the transcription of the rally for the broadcast it would help the rooters yell more if they saw the film of the Duke-Tennessee game. The score flashed on the screen, reading 12-7 in the Vol's favor. A voice from the projector room could be heard, "Hell, we forgot to censor it," and an other "we wuz robbed" rang out from a corner of the auditorium. - The first quarter began and Duke rallied, scored a touchdown, extra point and someone signaled for the operator to cut off the projector. The game was over Duke 7 and Tennessee 0. The rooters went wild. The Devils had won a game. r Devils Win Game It was suggested that they all give Mr. Wade a little yell. - The crowd spelled out his name several times, pausing a few seconds between each letter and Mr. Wade had been yelled. Kenan Stadium Till Rated Toss-up; Kickoff 2 o 'Clock Charlie Justice, Walt Pupa Expected To Lead Tar Heels; SC Crown at Stake t By Bob Goldwater In one of the nation's, most important football classics, two evenly-matched titans of the gridiron clash in Kenan stadium this aft ernoon when the strong elevens of North Carolina and Duke meet in the 33rd renewal of their rivalry. Kickoff time will be at 2 o'clock. A record crowd of close to 44,000 is I expected to be on hand to view the struggle, which has been rated as a tossup between Carolina's highly-geared offense and Duke's stubborn de fense. Leading the list of state nota bles who will witness the affair will be The athletic department announc ed yesterday that the gates of Ken an stadium will open at 11 o'clock. m. mm Ralph Strayhorn, above left, and Chan Highsmith are the co-captains of the Tar Heel football team this season. Strayhorn is a native Tar Heel from Durham and starts at guard, while Highsmith is the Caro lina starting center and hails from Brunswick, Ga. A freshman directly behind me, trying to impress the sweet little sophomore he was escorting, remarked. "Gad, just watch us WADE right through them Saturday." The littlte sopho more was impressed and I polished up my best Harvard laugh in order to be one of the boys. Who Is Carolina? It was time for the blue wave. Ev eryone threw up their arms over their heads and waved them back and forth, chanting something about Blue Devils. We stood up to sing the Duke Alma Mater. An over enthusiastic frosh near me gave me a nudge with his el bow to prompt me that I should stand at attention and "give out." In a moment of peak enthusiasm everyone burst forth with "Hubba, Hubba,, we will beat ole Caroline." I forgot myself and asked someone who was Caroline. I received a dirty look. Someone on the front row yelled out "Get Justice," and since everyone agreed that it was as appropriate clos ing they began filing out of the build ing. Grabbing the arms of two coeds, I scurried out of the auditorium listen ing to the rabbling of "Poor Tar Heels, Poor Tar ' Heels," and chuckling to myself I thought that only time will tell. Governor Gregg Cherry. Also pres ent from a perch atop the press box will be Paramount Newsreel camera men, who will focus their "eyes and ears of the world" on the dramatic tilt. Victory Incentives . Both teams have special reasons for wanting a victory today, other than the usual desire for each eleven to seek a triumph over its greatest rival. For the Tar Heels, victory means the re turn of the Southern conference cham pionship to Chapel Hill for the first time since 1937. It gives Carolina its first win over a Duke grid outfit since 1940. Finally, it assures the Tar Heels of a successful 1946 campaign, which already sports six triumphs and one tie in eight contests. The Blue Devils need a victory in order to maintain two records that of never losing more games than were won in a season and that of never dropping more than four games in one year. For Duke, a triumph would close successfully an otherwise dismal year in which the Blue Devils broke even in eight encounters. Both teams would also enjoy the taste of victory in order to break the one-all deadlock that exists between the two rival coaches, Carl Snavely and Wallace Wade. The Blue Devil mentor was victor in the last meeting in 1935. Powerful Backfields Both teams have an abundance of power in their backfields, with that of the Blue Devils having remained dor mant most of the campaign, finally breaking loose last week against South Carolina. Carolina's deceptive attack j is headed by Charlie Justice, who made ! a strong bid for Ail-American honors against Wake Forest last Saturday by compiling a total of 139 yards along the ground. Duke is reported to have set up a special defense designed to See CAROLINA, page S Power Plant Men Resign Positions Protesting that their wages were in sufficient, some employees of the Uni versity power plant resigned their po sitions yesterday afternoon at four o' clock. Plant operations continued with workers procured by the utilities di vision on the job. Employees who resigned stressed their position was not that of strikers. They said that compensation paid them for their services was too little, so they were leaving the power plant to seek more profitable work elsewhere. Wage scales are determined by the state, so the University is not empow ered to consider salary increases. Mystery Searchlight 'Just Publicity,9 Says Famed Band Director Chapel Hill as if it didn't happen have enough traffic troubles with to day's game suffered a minor flood of motorists last night who were seek ing the source of a mysterious beam of light that had been sweeping the Orange county skies since nightfall. They found the answer parked in front of Woollen gym, where Tommy Dor sey was opening his weekend dance series. The huge searchlight, a truck--mounted surplus anti-aircraft wea pon, was part of the famous band leader's retinue. Some spectators thought the great light had been put there by Dorsey to guide his twenty musicians to the scene of the dance, for nobody in cluding high University officials and the entire Order of the Grail had been able to find the oreVctra a place to stay nearer than Burlington, thirty miles away. There a new hotel was finished just in time to accommodate Dorsey and company. But, said Dorsey, that wasn't the searchlight's purpose at all. The my sterious light, he declared, was "just for publicity!"
