When Don Was King
Dog Tradition At Carolina
Again Coming Into Its Own
By Andy Taylor
A Carolina tradition almost as
old as South Building or the
Davie Poplar itself is coming
back into its own on campus.
The Carolina male population
may be on-' the decline due to the
draft, but the Army's K-9 Corps
hasn't done a thing to effect the
local dog colony.
Chapel Hill's dogs are a legend
throughout the stater and for the
first time since the days of Dan
. The Dog things are beginning to
look up from the local canine
point of view.
It used to be that dogs , were
as much a part of the Y Court as
the coffee and South Bulding
steps. And nearly as many pupa
as people gathered there to so
cialize. Dan, of course, is the embodi
ment of Carolina dig tradition.
His official title was Bowler Boy's
Danny, but folks everywhere
knew him as just Dan The Dog.
When . the venerable Dan was
king, he held the undisputed right
to attend any and all University
classes and sporting events. He
even made football trips with Tar
Heel fans, and once got left be
hind. In those days dogs rated just
as much attention as professors
and football players. It wasn't a
football game unless play was
halted at least once to run a stray
dog from the field. And it was
rumored that tho dogs were train
ed to interrupt just wrhen Car
olina most needed the rest.
Dan died in the summer of 1948
and students and alumni across
the" state mourned his pas?lng.
Just after that the administration
put a ban on Chapel Hill dogs,
indignant students paraded
through town in protest and the
officials finally compromised
with the dog-lovers.
But local canines seemed to
lose heart with the loss of Dan
and for the better part of two
Shears Chapel Hill's - jiog family
wasn't too much in evidence.
Dan'ssuccessors weren't long in
taking up the cry to regain their
lost dignity, however. Two years
ago there was Cap, a thorough
bred, muscle-bound Boxer who
hated coeds almost as much as

WILLIAMSBURG, May 2 The
College of William and Mary has
joined -other Southern schools in
admitting Negro "students to its
graduate schools, it was an
nounced yesterday by college of
ficials. Hulton L. Willis, an instruc
tor in a Norfolk public school and
a 1949 graduate of Virgiina State
College for Negroes, is the first
of his race to be accepted under
a policy adopted by the William
and Mary board to admit quali
fied. Negroes for graduate work
not offered at a state-supported
school for Negroes.
This policy was adopted after a
federal court ordered the Univer
sity of Virginia to admit Negroes
to its law school.
Willis, a native of Pittsburgh
and a World War II veteran, will
do graduate work in physical ed
ucation at W & M the nation's
second oldest college.
All students who have not
paid up their pledges to the
Campus Chest must do so today.
A booth will be set up in the Y
Court to accept all payments.
Fifty percent of the pledges
still remam to be paid and Chest
Chairman Bob Payne said yes
terday that students who had
pledged money and not paid it
were "seriously defeating the
effort to get the funds tabulated
and distributed to the various
he did cats.
Brownie was another favorite.
She 'was strictly a Monogram
sweater girl and went for the
football players especially All
American End Art Weiner.
Then there was Radar, who
many claim was the only dog
in Carolina history able to catch
a squirrel. His counter can be
presently found in the lumbering
Irish Setter who spends half his
time wasting his lungs on tree
bound sauirrels and the other half
