A great football game, beauti
ful weather and some 800 gals
from W.C. spelled out a perfect
day for Carolina fans who were
en hand for the surprising 21-0
conquest of the neighboring
brethern from the Agricultural
Institute in Raleigh yesterday.
The pace was set early in the
afternoon when both Tar Heel
and State rooters set about to
prove through the medium of
their cheers that each side was
happy to have the gals from
Greensboro on hand. The girls re
sponded to the greeting by split
ting , their allegiance, although
Carolina, seemed to have the nu
merical edge among the ladies.
The weather man executed a
neat fake and topped off the
threatening skies of early after

With the coming of the sun in

Carolina's dressing room was a
scene of tremendous jubilation
yesterday as a hot, tired, but
happy band of Tar Heels cele-
brated their 21-0 victory over N.
C. State. .
Coach Carl Snavely was the
happiest man in the state as he
viewed the locker room. Tm

mentor said, "not only over the
outcome ; of the game but over
the way the boys played. They
looked very good after they over
came their first game jitters. -I
also liked the way the sophomores
and freshmen played."
Captain Joe Dudeck, whom
Snavely described "as good as
they, come," was going aroun4 the
room snaiang nanus . wiui eacn
player and congratulating them
on the fine game. Holding aloft
the game ball Dudeck shouted,
"We'll get nine more of these" to
which each man voiced his ap
As for the team, Dudeck said,
"The boys showed a heck of a lot
of improvement. Now that they've
played together and have seen
what they can do, we should go
a long way."
Bob (Goo Goo) Gantt, the
game's leading ground gainer
said, Tm very glad we won."

Bud Carson was- In a corner
trying to get out of his uniform
and smile for the photographers
at the same time. "I think we
have a helluva good team and I
think we'll improve," the speedy
safetyman said. "Our offense
looked good , in spots and every
body played well."
Lookilng up from the job of
untying his shoes, Billy Williams
managed a smile. "We won and
that's what counts" he said. ''You

omores and freshmen saw instead
the veteran members of the team
take the lead and show Carolina
the way to its sixth straight vic
tory over the Wolf pack.
Carson, a five foot, nine inch
165-pound safety man, scored the
first Tar Heel touchdown on a
wonderful 74-yard punt return
and entered the game on offense
late in the fourth quarter to pick
f up a quick 17 yards on two plays
to set Fullback Bob White up for
a touchdown plunge.
Carson's punt return, the only
touchdown that was needed as it
turned out, was a thing of real
beauty. Webster's kick followed
a stall in the Wolfpack offense
which came on the State 25. His
punt was high and traveled all
the way to the Carolina 26, where
Carson caught it backing up.
He ran easily to his right over
to the Carolina sideline, picking
up his interference. He stayed
behind his blockers until he
reached midf ield, where Statemen
Dick Sprite and -Steve Kosilla
were dumped. Carson then
sprinted past his blockers and
ran the remainder of the 74 yards
Billy Williams made a perfect
placement to give the Tar Heels
a 7-0 lead with only 2:57 gone in
the second period."
The Tar Heel victory came
much easier than expected and the
Carolina team played the game
very close to the chest, revealing
very little to the Georgia -and
Texas scouts in the press box.
Alex Webster, a giant 205-
I pound tailback was practically
the entire Wolfpack offense, but
he was not nearly enough. State
made three first downs rushing
and six by passing. Passing made
up almost all their net yardage
with Webster, Potts and Moyer
tossing for 112 yards.
Bud Wallace, playing left half
back on defense, started the of
fense that led to his touchdown
by intercepting a Webster pass on
the State 41. In three cracks at
