SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1946
THE DAILY TAR HEEL
And the day of the big battle dawns. This afternoon two great
gridiron giants clash in beautiful Kenan stadium in the South's
biggest football game and, as far as local students and fans are
concerned, the country's greatest football battle.
It has been six long years since a Carolina eleven last tasted
victory. But that cool, clear afternoon in 1940 was one that will
long stand out in the minds of men and women who yelled them
selves hoarse. An underdog Tar Heel team upset the Blue Devils,
6-3, while sports experts looked on in amazement.
That 1940 Tar Heel club won the game on one unbeatable fac
tor a great spirit that would not be vanquished. It was appar
ent to every Carolina student the night before that a Tar Heel
victory was inevitable. The terrific spirit that prevailed caught
everyone in its draft and swept Carolina to one of its greatest
But the past is dead as far as this November afternoon is con
cerned, and today is the day on which the total success of a whole
football season balances. One of Carolina's best teams, under the
capable guidance of Coach Carl Snavely, has weathered a tough
schedule with but one defeat. A lot could hinge on the outcome
of this afternoon's classic. A Duke team that has suffered four
defeats is at its peak for the traditional struggle. Anything can
happen. It always does when Carolina and Duke meet on any
gridiron. It always shall. But with the student body standing
enthausiastically behind our gridmen to a man, we are all ready
to celebrate one of Carolina's greatest victories. But win, lose,
or draw, it will be a football classic. LET'S GO CAROLINA !
Defeating Its Purpose
The fact that the Grail slipped up in its distribution of tick
ets to the Dorsey dances this weekend will beadmitted even by
the members themselves. . . '
One of the reason's for the Grail's creation was to provide the
campus with sets of open dances which would furnish those out
side of the German club (limited to fraternities) a chance to
attend some of the big dances. Membership in the Grail was also
supposed to be half fraternity and half non-fraternity in scope.
Of late, the fraternity membership in the organization has in
creased. This is not to be condemned if most of the campus lea
ders happen to be members of a fraternity.
However, after spending the greatest sum of money ever spent
for a set of dances on this campus for Tommy Dorsey, space limi
tations forced the Grail to limit the ticket sale to 2000 tickets.
But each member of the Grail was given several tickets to dis
pose of as he wished before they were put on general sale at the
Y. Naturally, the tendancy on the part of most of the members
would be to sell the tickets, to their most intimate friends. In most
cases, these friends are fraternity brothers. .
The results is that 750 tickets, or 40 per cent of the total num
ber of tickets, were kept from the open market, so to speak, and
distributed by the members themselves. Most of these went
to the very same men who make up the personnel of the Ger
man club, thereby defeating the origination's original purpose.
Members of the Grail have realized their mistake. It shall not
I Lest We Be Misunderstood
We regret that some students misunderstood our editor's note
prefacing the list of fraternity pledges in yesterday's issue.
Let us hasten to assure everyone that no slur was intended on
the names of any of the men pledging the fraternities. What we
were doing was telling our readers that, since we could not get
the names printed in smaller type, it was necessary to use al
most half the page to print them.
Certainly we had no intention of offending the men whose
names we printed, and did not mean tq intimate that we did not
wish to publish them. To those who were so offended, our hasty

Increase in Di-Phi Activity
Would Justify Their Being
By Jud Kinberg
In any campus population there are invariably men who resort to indis
criminate "smear" in the place of logic. Unfortunately for his organization
the Phi Bob Morrison is of that category. His letter and its attempt to
label me as a writer "with little competence or reliability" stands out in
contrast with the other sincere ones published in the DTH. In the contrast,
Morrison comes off a poor second. It reflects little credit upon a man who
once held an important editorial post, but then, Morrison has long stepped
beyond the bounds of good sense when jabbed by personal pique.
To those who know Dear Bob, the
reason for his vehement letter is ob-
Movie Fans Express Dislike
For 'I've Always Loved You'
By Bob Finehout
Yesterday I was strolling by the Carolina Palladium when a wild-eyed
individual, whom I shall take the liberty of calling a friend, accosted me.
"Well," he expostulated, "what are you going; to do about it?" "About what?"
I countered neatly. "This," he answered, indicating with a sweeping gesture,
a poster advertising the movie "I've Always Loved You." "You didn't like
it?" I. ventured meekly. "No, sweetheart, I didn't, and what's more I think
it stank that's the past tense of 'stink' for your information."
I bowed at the waist, repeating the :
word softly to myself.
"Tell me," I asked, pursuing the
question further, "just why do. you
think 'I've Always Loved You'
" 'Stank'," my friend corrected.
"I couldn't begin to tell you, chum.

vious. In my condemnation - of the
Di and Phi, I mentioned that they
are the havens for "disappointed cam
mis workers." Obviously, Morrison
felt the shoe pinched him too well.
For those new to Carolina, Morrison
was repudiated by both the Studen
and University Party in his attempt
to seek renomination to the DTH Ed
itorship last spring.
But I've already taken up too
much time on Morrison. I have ex
plained the background of his letter
only so that DTH readers may cor
rectly adjudge his reliability. For
my part, I welcomed the flood of
letters. I take exception to Morri
son's because it attempts to be
muddle the issue by personal in-

I believe that all of you, many my
friends, realize that I mentioned the

storing them to full effectiveness. '.
have known that a good deal of pro
gress was being effected, but I don't
believe it is enough.
Return to pre-war efficacy for the
Di and Phi is hardly enough. In the
late 30's, these two groups were shadow-groups,
forgotten by the students.
Until our recent "discussion" in the
Daily Tar Heel, they remained in that
One or two examples should prove
that some reform is needed:
1. Although Di and Phi members
claim campus interest for their
groups, not one letter from a non
member was received by the Daily
Tar Heel in defense of the two groups.
2. Maximum attendance at meet
ings has seldom gone above thirty or
forty. The Phi's debate on language
studies, even after full airing in the'
Tar Heel letter column and this re
cent altercation, drew a great big
twenty attendance. The result, after
all the effort expended, should be as
disappointing to the Phi as it is to me.
Such minor interests on the part
of a 7,000-man campus certainly .
doesn't make the Di and Phi re
semble the live-wire groups about
which the letters have spoken. I
have little doubt that there is noble
effort on the part of Di and Phi to
drag themselves from the quagmire
of indifference. Unfortunately, I be
lieve they'll need a lot more rope
to get out.
From my knowledge of the Di and
Phi in the past, from my knowledge
of them at present, I would make the
suggestion that the two organizations
be merged. Then, with expanded mem
bership on which to base their pro
gram, they could vitalize and activate
programs that seem to be too much
in the planning stage.
Increased and more effective pub
licity for this comBmed group, better
choice of topics, concentration upon
local and school affairs, are other
measures that come to mind.
Those who read my original ar
ticle know that I called for revi
sion, not for abolition. My fear ia
that the revision upon present lines
will leave us with the same two
puttering Di and Phi. Whether such
organizations can long remain. on
campus is a question that I hope
will never be answered.
For those who wrote in the spirit
of fairness, I was quite gratified to
see that some of the Di and Phi
members rallied round their flag. The
thing now is to justify that support
by making a Di-Phi which will count
the number of people at their meet
ings in hundreds and not in insigni
ficent fives and tens.

To Creative Film
Four short films, created by Maya

theatre, tomorrow evening, at 8 o'
The public is invited to see the films
which were produced purely out of the
desire of experiment with film as a
creative art , form. - They have been
widely shown in various colleges, uni
versities, museums, and dance schools
throughout the United States with en
The program includes: "Meshes of
the Afternoon," a film concerned with
the inner realities of an individual;
"At Land," a film of dislocations of
space and time; "A Study in Chore
ography of Camera," in which the
camera itself becomes an active ele

Transfigured Time," a film showing
Time created by the camera.
Maya Deren, who has worked with
her husband, Alexander Hamid, in ex
perimenting with the cinema as an in
dependent art form, has been celebra
ted widely. Earl Leaf in Dance Mag
azine is quoted: "... As we watched
Maya Deren's cinematic experiments
. . . we commenced to dimly realize the
potentialities of the dance in motion
pictures ... Something so wonderful
is created that has all these years de
fied the imagination of the best Holly
wood producers, directors, cameramen,
and 'special effects' experts. . . "
