THE DAILY TAR HEEL
From the Administration
" On behalf of the faculty and, in particular, of the administra
tion, I should like to commend the entire student body for the
gentlemanly way in which the events climaxed by the game Sat
urday afternoon were carried out. The excellent Sportsman
ship on both campuses in showing that we canrise above sub
freshman pre-game antics resulting in material and spiritual
damage to our institutions was carried on by two superb ath
letic teams last Saturday. . .
The campaign against vandalism carried on by the Editor of
the Daily Tar Heel and his staff, the stand taken by the Men's
Council, the various columnists, the fraternity and dormitory
leaders, and the way in which the whole student body fell in
step with this commedable plan of showing that we are uni
versity men and women and not prep school students was most
It was fine to have the largest crowd ever to visit Chapel Hill
see the splendid example of clean sportsmanship evidenced by
the entire student body.

Dean of Students.

Saturday Was 'Happiest Day'
In Joy-Blanketed Chapel Hill
By Jud Kinberg
The Bell Tower has had its happiest day and ior those of us who started
at UNC some four and five years ago, it is a fitting climax to years of hoping.
Now we can all graduate and stop sponging off the government.
We made it Saturday afternoon and in decisive fashion. The millenium
may not be here, but the joy that blanketed Chapel Hill certainly is a fair
The victory was doubly sweet in that this was the true "Homecoming Day."
Hundreds of faces that left Carolina two, three and four years ago were in
the sea of 45,000 spectators. For the :
It Might Hurt
Tommy Dorsey, the Sentimental Gentleman who cast aside
any gentlemanly traits of character when he blew his top at the
Friday night dance, is being sued by the Order of the Grail for
a breach of contract. The amount of the suit, $20,000, is twice
that which the Dorsey band contracted to play for, a nice, little
, sum of money to most of us around here and probably to Dorsey
as well. Though the Grail has not completed an audit on the
dance, it is virtually impossible to believe that the organization
lost money on! the dance. Yet, the Grail members expressed
the belief that something should be done if a contract dealing
with $10,000 were violated.
It makes sense for an organization to legally protect its rights,
if in so doing there is something gained and not a whole lot
more lost, but there seems to be little logic in making a fuss
which may hurt more than do good. The Grail is in a position
to show the various orchestra agencies that colleges will stand
up for their rights, not submitting to any trickery with regard
to contracts in this one respect, but it might put a damper on
the visits of union bands to college campuses, the University of
North Carolina in particular. The Grail feels that its organ
ization has been done an injustice and that the time has come
to take a stand against breaches of contract.
The Grail is apparently taking the move in good faith and
with excellent legal advice. The Daily Tar Heel's only hope is
that neither the University nor the Grail will get hurt.

groaned a little bit, Saturday was a

beginning of the season, really was on
display at Kenan Stadium. Some of
my long-faced friends have said that

support should put the lie to
that worry. UNC is still a cheer-happy
college, and that spirit doesn't end
Fo our memories, which stretch back
farther than we usually like to admit,
it was the epitome of what a weekend
should be. Thousands of students start

when they jam-packed the pep ral

As the greater thousands quickly
filled Kenan Stadium, its beauty again
became a thing worthy of legend. If
there is another bowl in the college
country that sets off a crowd as nice
ly as Kenan we'll eat it, tier by tier.
We'll be talking about the game it
self for months and years to come. In
fact, it will be part of pre-game dis
cussion when Tar Heels gather in New
Orleans this coming New Year's Day.
This, by the way, is a hint to Sugar
Bowl officials that Carolina is the
team. (Please don't fail us, boys,
we've already bought plane, tickets
down to Creole Country.)
Tramping over the clay victory high
ways on the way back from the Sta
dium, it was easy to tell Duke and
Carolina rooters apart. The boys and
girls from Durham walked in a de
ternlined, resigned manner the way
we've been so used to doing since
1942. UNC fans stopped and cluster
ed whenever there was a chance to
mention the touchdown plays, the
magnificent showing of both line and
Even if he were never to play an-
j other game (and he has some 29 still
to go) Justice has engraved his name
at the top of Carolina greats. As one
post-victory reveler said, "Whenever
you tell a person you're from UNC,
they'll think a minute and say, 'That's
where Justice played, isn't it?"' The
way we feel, if he wants some little
thing to remember the 1946 Duke
game something like the Bell Tower
or South Building why we should
see that Choo Choo gets it." j
Before we receive irate letters, men

inspired manner in which every single
Carolina man played. Also, an out

Assistant Secretary of State Bill Benton learned the other day. Benton, re

in charge of the State Department's good-will program has been having
his troubles with Congress. Some of the more backwoods Congressmen can i
understand why it is important to sell America to the rest of the world, es
pecially if it costs money. They haven't learned that selling peace through
friendship is lots cheaper than fighting wars with battleships.

Dear Santa Clans:
In just one month now you will be
making your annual trips down the
chimneys throughout the nation.. I'm

First, I should tell you my name:
It's University of North Carolina Stu
dent Body. And I have only one item
on my list namely, an invitation for
the Tar Heels to the Sugar Bowl in
New Orleans on January 1.
I don't think I'm asking too much,
since I have been so good. For instance,
I have followed and supported our
valiant Tar Heel team in every grid
contest this season. I broke all exist
ing records last week, in not journey
ing over to the Duke campus with
paint and brush. I have adopted and
generally lived up to the constitution
of the student body.
The Tar Heels have been very,
very good, too. They have lost only one
game, to Tennessee, and were tied by
VPL You've already given Tennessee
its Orange Bowl bid, and we beat the
same Wake Forest team that defeated
the Vols, even though wejiost by one
touchdown to the Tennesseans. We de
cisively toppled Duke, scoring three
more points against the Devils than
Army tallied. Also, we scored two of
our touchdowns on running plays,
while the Cadets were forced to the
air to score all theirs. And did you
know that this Carolina outfit held the
Dukesters without a single first down
in the last 43 minutes of play in Satur
day's game? Not bad, we say.
If you bring me this Sugar Bowl
bid, I won't ask for anything else.
You can keep your dolls, red wagons
and toy trains. (We have our own
"Carolina Choo Choo.")
Yes, Mr. Santa Claus, just give us
the bid, and we'll take it from there.
Be the opposition Georgia, Georgia
Tech, LSU or anyone, we feel that our
Tar Heels can give a creditable ac
count of themselves. Incidentally, it
should prove to be a very interesting
offensive battle if Georgia's Trippi
and our Justice were to meet on the

There were so many people enter

ent ways Saturday night that Chapel

again brings to mind New Orleans.

If the time ever returns when Caro

to talk of November 23, 1946.
All of which returns to the hard,
happy fact: the phrase is no longer

present strike is hastening the end
of the coal industry.
A brief news item from the little
town of Louisville, N. Y., tells part
of the story. Its 150 families have
converted to oil, making it the first
completely oil-heated town in the
USA. Others are bound tj follow.
Some industries had started con
verting to oil even before the strike.
Natural gas piped east will further
cut down coal consumption es
pecially as coal becomes more ex
pensive and more uncertain.
However, this only tells part of the
story. The rest of the story began
on Aug. 5, 1945, when a bomb was
dropped on Hiroshima. Scientists have
been working ever since on the prob
lem of harnessing atomic energy. Al
ready Poland is constructing an atom
ic energy power plant. In the United
States the first atomic power plants
should be completed in two years.
Naturally the coal, steef and oil in
terests are not anxious to encourage
this. Nor are the big power companies,
whose water power installations would
be scrapped. These incidentally are
the same interests which have blocked
the use of natural gas in the big inch
and little inch pipelines.
Science, however, can be retarded,
but not stopped. And when atomic
energy is used on a wide scale, scien-
ists estimate it will be much cheaper
han coal or oil. When that happens,
coal mining will be just as obsolete
as the journeymen wagon builders of
1800. And unfortunately for the coal
miners, trie more uncertain they
make the supply of coal, the more
they spur the development of atomic
Down in Georgia it is considered
significant that red-gallused Gene Tal
madge, the minority-elected new gov
ernor, was not present to help pre
sent a $1,800 De Soto automobile to
Ku Klux Klan Grand Dragon, Dr.
Samuel Green. Instead, Gene's son,
Herman, did the honors.
Herman made a powerful, arm
waving speech, just like the "old
man," in which he damned "Jews,
Catholics and niggers" and in which
he also eulogized Dr. Green. Herman
said he had known the Grand Dra
gon's "constructive work" for many
years, and he considered him "a splen
did, American of spotless character."
The opposition, Herman said, had im
ported detectives to comb Green's
record but never had been able to find
anything bad about him.
After Klansman Cliff Vittur pre
sented the De Soto car as a "surprise"
to the Grand Dragon, the latter arose
and accepted the gift.
First he took out of his pocket a
tiny toy automobile which he placed
on the table.
"When I first heard Drew Pearson
announce that I was to receive a
gift of an automobile," proclaimed
the Grand Dragon, "I was not sure
I could believe a person like Pear
son, so a friend of mine presented
me with a toy automobile that
night to keep from making a liar
out of Drew."
