Tar Heels Gloomy
After Georgia Loss
Gloom settled over the Caro
lina dressing room and a tired
Tar Heel football team slowly
went through the process of dress
ing after yesterday's 28-18 defeat
at the hands of Georgia.
Coach Carl Snavely offered
words of encouragement to his
beaten charges. "We played a
good team and got beat," the
mentor said." VOur team hasn't
reached its peak of development
Speaking of Carolina's offense;
he said, "The passing game began
to function at the end but it was
not enough. It's some encourage
ment for the future though."
" The Carolina, football team
sports a host of good kickers this
season. Bud Wallace, Southern
Conference leader last year, Dick
Lackey, Billy Williams, Ernie Li
berate Dick Starner and Sonny
Ridenhour give the Tar Heels
class in the punting department.

Is No Avail As Backs
By BILL PEACOCK
A fine Carolina line saw its work undone yestrday by a
helpless pass defense which allowed the Georgia Bulldogs
to score three of their four touchdowns on passes in the second
half and win the football game, 28-16.
The Tar Heels, before a crowd of 40,000 in Kenan Stadium,
blew three chances to score in the first, half and then blew
the "game in the second half as Georgia Quarterback Zeke
Bratowski tossed three touchdown passes.
All The Way
"It could have been a-'differ-
ent story," said Coach Wally
Butts of the Georgia Bulldogs.
"If we had had our boys on de
fense that were injured we might
have held them a little better than
we didMf either team had opened
up on their passing a little soon
er, I don't know what would have
happened. Both teams had a fine
passing attack, but there was some
poor quarterbacking as far as
both teams were concerned."
The general opinion .of the
whole Georgia squad was that
they had the Tar Heels all the
way. Star back Zippy Morroco
said, "I felt good the whole team
felt good.' I knew we had em,
even during; the first half when;
they had us way back there. We
just couldn't play the wide open
football we like to play I knew
we would open up.""'
V "Carolina ? quit in the second
half" was the opinion of Butts,
Morroco, and Dick Raber, Bull
dog fullback. "They were way up
for the game in the first half'
"But they just didn't have it for
that second half. We had to win;
most of the squad were seniors
and it was their last chance to

Georgia gained 165 yards on
passing in the second half to sink
the Tar Heels and win their first
game in Chapel Hill since 1933.
It was also the first time a Geor
gia team had beaten the Tar Heels
since the 1948 Sugar Bowl.
' The Bulldogs took only a 7-2
lead into the fourth quarter, but
they exploded for two touchdowns
in 73 seconds at' the start of that

period to put the game away. A
long pass from Bratowski to Zip
py Morocco covering 50 yards
made up most of the drive which
gave Georgia their second touch
From the Georgia 24, Bratow
ski hit Morocco at midfield and
the halfback faked Tommy Stev
ens and then Bud Wallace and
reached the Carolina 26 before
George Norris took him from be
hind. Lauren Hargrove, the other
halfback skirted the left end to
the 13 for another first down and
Morocco carried to the 11.
; Bratowski then hit Right End
Art DeCarlo all alone right over
center in the end zone. Sam
Mrvos" placement gave Georgia
a 14-9 lead with 12 : 04 remaining
in the fourth quarter.
Freshman Larry Parker car
ried the ensuing kickoff out to
the 24 on a nice return and the
Carolina following took heart
again. But on first down, Dick
Weiss, a ground-gaining star in
the first half, fumbled on the Car
olina 27 and Georgia's Tony Cap
rara recovered. . .
Four plays later Georgia had
the winning touchdown. Raber
went for no gain on first down
nnd then Bratowski and Morocco
missed on passes, but on fourth
down Bratowski: Kit Morocco on
the 12 right next to Billy Wil-
liams and Morocco spun away
from" the Carolina defender and
went for the winning touchdown.
Mrvos added the extra point with
10:51 left in the fourth quarter.
Carolina started the four touch
down parade in the last quarter
to take a lead which lasted only
28 seconds. Larry Parker took a
Bratowski punt on the Georgia
41 and with the aid of a key block
by Wallace returned the punt to
the Bulldog 12.
Frank Wissman went over
right tackle to the six and Weiss
made another yard over the mid
dle of the line. Wissman then
! threw a lowish pass on the left
flat to Jeff Newton who went
