Strictly Ad Lib
Crime' Invades the Big Time
SAD TO SAY, OLD demon Crime has reared its proverbially
ugiy head once .again. The -.settings as usual, is. New York where
jou can buy anything from a 12-inch firecracker to a basketball
"iiine. The once fair game of basketball received another .kick in
the coccyx a few days ago when it was discovered that no less than
eight players on "big time" cage teams had accepted money from
professional gamblers to "throw" games in Madison Square Garden,
a modern Garden of Eden with more than one shake' on the loose.
Of the Evil Eight, representing NYU, CCNY, and LIU, one has
been tabbed the nation's outstanding player and three others have
been mentioned as All-America candidates. The big man irl the
deal, of course, was Sherman White, the 6 7" Long Island ace
who is currently leading the nation hv scoring and has been named
h-v the outstanding eager of the year by Sporting News.
is unfortunate, to say the least, when players accept bribe
money to "fix" a game for the benefit of a few underworld citizens
who are out to' fleece the suckers that flood the Big Town, but
when some of the top names in basketball join in on the deal you
know the country's top spectator sport has hit an all-time low.
The Cost of the Loss
THE PLAYERS PROBABLY DIDN'T think about it when the
-amblers waved the long green in front of them, but important
games aren't the only things they're tossing out the window. The
boys who have been nabbed by New York detectives also have
thrown away their self respect, the respect of ' their fellows, and a
jhot at professional basketball. Many . of the boys involved in the
fixes had promising pro careers before them. Others didn't, but
the fact that they walked the crooked path will follow them from
here on out no matter where they go. They'll be lucky to get
truck driving jobs after this.
They're regretting their misdeeds already, of course; but regret
won't keep them out of prison or open the Pearly Gates.
Carolina Basketball Coach Tom Scott was contacted yesterday
about the second basketball scandal since New Year's Day. He
commented that the Tar Heels will likely play in the Garden again
next year, but added that the final decision will have to come from
the administration. "At this time we don't have a game scheduled
in New York for next year," Scott said, "but we'll probably be back
there if the administration doesn't rule it but."
The amiable Tar Heel Coach referred to the New York mess as
"very bad for the game,
lot," he commented.
To Fix Games
NEW YORK, Feb.: 21 (UP)
The basketball betting scandal
spread across the nation today
with charges of attempted "fixes"
on the West Coast.
A New York grand jury began
hearing wiretap evidence in its
own bribery case.
The grand jury here started its
probe into the sensational cases
involving three City College of
New York stars, three Long Is
land University stars, one New
York University player and two
other men. Earlier police seized
the financial records and bank
accounts of Salvatore Torto Sol
lazzo, 45-year-old jewelry man
ufacturer accused of being the
"payoff man" in the New York
bribe ring. -
Menawhile, across the nation
there were these developments:
1. In East Lansing, Mich:, for
mer San Francisco University
basketball coach Pete Newell said
three of his players were offered
bribes to throw games while he
was on the West Coast. He nam
ed two of the players Don Lof
gran, and Frank Kuzara and
thev confirmed his charges.

2. At Portland, Ore., Police
Chief Charles Pray said his de
partment had been asked by Mil
waukee Police for information
regarding telephone calls on bas
ketball gambling. The alleged
phone calls were from a Portland
"card room" to Milwaukee.
In Close Meet
By Buddy. Norfhart "
Carolina's freshrnan wrestlers
last night lost a hard fought meet,
1 16-12, " to - the Western Carolina
Teacher's College Varsity in
Woollen Gym. It was, the Tar
Babies' second loss of the year to
the WCTC team.
The Tar Babies got off to a fast
start with Harry Pawlik, 123 lbs.,
decisioning WCTC's Davis White
sides, 9-6. Pawlik came back from
a near pin in the second period
to take the match. '
In the 137 lbs. Class, WCTC's
Bob Hornaday pinned Henry Wil
son in 1:10 of the first period
with a half-nelson and crotch
WCTC made it two pins in a
row when Bob Halliburton, 147
lbs., pinned Carolina's Bill Dam
eron in 25 seconds of the first
period using a half-nelson and
Tommy Stokes, 157 lbs., put
Carolina back in the running with
a 9-4 decision over Jack Nolan.
Stokes' smart wrestling enabled
him to outsmart his stronger op
ponant for the win.
Carolina's Andy Holt lost his
first match of the season when, he
was decisioned 6-0, by Bozo Bur
elson, in the 177 lbs. class.
Competition In Conference Division Keen
As Tor Heels Defend Indoor Games Title
THE USUAL JOKES HAVE been making the rounds since the
big scandal broke, but in the opinion of most sport personalities it's
no laughing matter.
Certain radio-TV comics don't see it that way, however. Chuck
ling about the situation, one comic did a take-off on an old song
by singing, "Rumors are flying that CCNY .isn't, trying," Another
bit of satire went this way: "A tisket, a tasked $500 for thas
Since everybody else is getting into the act I might as well
drop my two cents into the pot. If the laugh-makers are going to
stick to the practice of stealing punch lines from popular songs,
they might suggest that LIU adopt "Bye, Bye Blackbirds" as its
new theme song.
A recent press report states that Long Island has already dropped
intercollegiate athletics and will, temporarily at least, confine its
basketball and other sports to intramurals.
3. A United Press survey of 48
colleges which played basketball
in Madison Square Garden this
season revealed that six have de
cided not to return because of the
bribe scandal. Twenty-five said
they were willing to return and
the remainder were undecided.
New York District Attorney
Frank S. Hogan said he was pre
senting his evidence to the Grand
Jury on the men already arrested
and that he does not plan to
question any tther college play
ers now. He said he expected
indictments on those accused
within 10 days.
Newell, new coach at Michigan
State College, said tnere is lots
of gambling" on college basket
ball on the West Coast. He said
Portland, Ore., was a "hotbed."

. Competition in the conference i
division of the 16th Annual
Southern Conference Indoor
Games to be held Saturday in
Woollen Gymnasium appears to
be much stiffer this year than in
previous years when Carolina's
Tar Heels won 11 of 15 meets, in
cluding the last six in succession.
The Tar Heels .-will be favored
again this year, but by a much'
smaller margin. ' Carolina will
need every man int top shape,
to stave off threats of strong
Maryland and Duke.
Carolina should find Defend
ng Champions Dave Willis and
Jack Moody repeating in the 60
yard dash and jthe high jump
respectively. High jumper Billy
Joyner, High Hurdler Garrett
Fitzgibbons, Low Hurdler Frank
Scott and Quarter-miler Gene
Brigham are other top Tar Heels
who might gain first place points.
Maryland will be strong in the
distance events with Al Buehler
and Tyson Creamer favored in
the half and the mile respective
ly and big Jack Unterkolfer in the
shot put. Duke will have Tommy
Reeves favored in the broad jump
and Johnny Connor in the pole
N. C. State's Clyde Garrison is
the two-mile favorite. The mile
relay event is a toss-up with
Duke, Maryland and Carolina all
given a chance to win.
The freshman division will also
be a highly competitive bracket
with 17 teams entered in six
events. Carolina won last year
with 10 3-4 points.
In the scholastic division there
are 24 teams entered, headed by
defending champion Washington
Lee High; of Arlington, Va. The
champs will be among the favor
ites along with Georgia Military
Academy, Woodberry Forest Prep
and Granby High of Norfolk.
Georgia Tech gets the favor

crown in the non-conference di
vision. The Engineers rate the

Here At 8
Carolina's gymnastic team will
meet the University of Maryland
gymnasts at 8 o'clock tonight
on the main floor of Woollen
Gym. The meet will be the fourth
of the season for the Tar Heels
who have not tasted victory so
far this year.
According to Coach Bill Meade,
the Tar Heels will have a good
chance of defeating the Terps,
who are also winless. Maryland
lost to Penn State by the same
score as did Carolina.
Meade reported that four men,
out of action so far this season
because of injuries, will see action
tonight. They are: Andy Bell,
high bar; Bill McCord, trampo
line; Perry Ritch, tumbling; and
Bob House, tumbling.
High point men Check Goodin,
Tom Harrison, R. S. White, nnd
Murray Cook will also be on hand
to pace the Tar Heels. Meade said
tonight will be the first time this
season that the Tar Heels have
been in top shape.
The Tar Heels' previous de
feats have come at the hands of
Georgia Tech, Penn State, and
Duke. In each of the meets Car
olina was hampered by injuries.
Wallace Maintains Lead In Scoring Race;
aldi And Deasy Follow, Nladdie Fourth
Jack Wallace, sophomore from
Elkins, W. Va., maintained his
iedd in the Tar Heel scoring race.
The 6 ft. 3 in. forward has scored
335 points in 24 games for a 13.9
Vince Grimaldi is second, How-
ard Deasy third, and Bud Maddie
' Grimaldi, another sophomore,
has pushed 121 field goals through
the hoops to lead in that depart
ment. He has scored a total of 298
points for an 11.1 average.
Deasy has scored 228 points in
22 games for a 10.3 average. His
best departmenT is rebounds
where he has pulled in 383 way
ward shots to rank among the
national leaders. He also has the
dubious distinction of leading in
personal fouls committed with 85.

Carolina and Maryland are
currently tied for eighth place
in the Southern Conference bas
ketball standings with identical
9-7 win-loss records.
The Tar Heels can virtually
cinch the eighth spot and thus
gain the Conference tournament
in Raleigh beginning a week from
today by downing Duke Friday
night. Should the Tar Heels lose,
then Maryland could gain the
tourney by winning two of its
three remaining games with Rich
mond, VMI and George Washington.

Injured through part of
the season, Maddie came back
in the late Tar Heel surge of
victories to raise his total. He
is second in rebounds with 190.
Hugo . Kappler, sparkplug ana j
co-captain, has a sensational field!
goal percentage of .427. He has
139 points in 16 games for an
8.7 average. Kappler was injured
for a major part of the season
and managed to get into four of
those eames for only a few
Charlie Thorne has proved!
himself one of the most valuable j
T.en on the squad with his calm ,
play. The senior and co-captain J
'eads the team in the important
field of assists with 60.
A Tar Heel victory over Duke
would mean that Maryland's only
chance to make the tourney would
be to win all three games.
Carolina could lose to Duke
and still make the tourney pro

games, an unlikely eventuality.
