If Was A Wonderful Game -Irish
Coach Frank Leahy
by Tom Peacock
Notre Dame Coach Frank Leahy , was 'hot'." The Irish mentor ad-
was in a genial mood after watch
ing his team stand off two Caro
lina drives to beat the Tar Heels,
12-7, while Carl Snavely was de
jected but proud of the showing
his boys had made.
Leahy was overjoyed to a point
of exturbance, and kept repeat
iOrQ, "It was a wonderful game
wasn't it a wonderful game to
watch from the stands?"
The team itself, while bruised
and cut by the aroused Tar Heels,
sang the Notre Dame victory
march over and over, and had
hardly started dressing forty-five
minutes after the game had end
ed. Irish quarterback John Mazur
expressed the opinion when he
declared, "I was sure relieved to
see Uiat game end not that I'm
saying we were lucky, but they
were on us all the way."
Leahy was glad to win, of
course, and praised Coach .Carl
Snavely and his charges for their
readiness. "Coach Snavely certain
ly did have his boys prepared.
They were as good as any team
we have played with the excep
tion of Michigan State." When
asked if the Tar Heels were as
good as SMU, Leahy replied, "Yes
they were possibly better. SMU
lost yardage against us on the
ground, you know."
Leahy picked Bob Toneff and
Paul Reynolds as outstanding
Notre Dame players, and com
mented "Reynolds played very
well, especially for an, eighteen-year-old
freshman. We ran more
plays off the left side because he

mitted Notre Dame ran more from
the I-f ormation than ever before,
as it seemed to upset the Carolina
Leahy thought that Al Mueller
played an outstanding game for
the Tar Heels, and asked "Where
have you been keeping that boy
for the past 8 games?" When
someone yelled out Mueller was
a 26-year-old sophomore, Leahy
look startled and said, "Goodness,
Where has he been the past 30
Leahy explained the absence of
Mazur, his first string quarter
back, from most of the game by
saying, "He was like a crapshoot
er he was having a 'cold run'."
Coach Snavely was proud of
the showing -his boys had made
against the Irish. Walking into the
dressing room, Snavely held up
his hand and said, "Boys, you have
nothing to be ashamed of. You
played a fine game and I'm proud
of you I appreciate it."
Speaking to reporters, Snavely
said, "They're just too good for
us, but I-guess our boys gave ev
erything they had. We had some
injuries that hurt us too." The
Tar Heels lost starters Dick Wiess,
Bob Gantt, and Chal ; Port in the
first half, and Skeet Hesmer in the
Snavely considered the inter
ception of Connie Gravitte's toss
in the fourth quarter as the turn
ing point of the game, and said,
"That choked off our last chance
to score. It was a logical play that
just went wrong.',

Those much-maligned Tar Heels, winners of only two
games this year, gave heavily-favored

Tar Heel Fans
Student support for Coach Carl
Snavely broke out. into the open
yesterday afternoon' during the"
cardboard display and in the last
few seconds of the game when
the cheering section let loose with
a "Yea Snavely, here's a hand."
In appreciation, Snavely turned
around and waved his hand to
the huge turnout of students who
had yelled themselves hoarse in
a terific display of cheering spirit,
Under the guidance of Durwood
Jones, head cheerleader, the Caro
lina fans rocked the stadium con
tinuously with "Let's Go, Caro
lina," "Blue andWhite," and other
yells. The Carolina section was
so enthusiastic that Jones had to
ask everyone to quiet down in the
opening minutes of the fourth
quarter so the team could hear the
signals.. . "
An unidentified sailor tried to
take over Jones' position but Dur
ham police quickly restrained the
"salt." . He was so imbued with
the Carolina spirit and other spir
its that he made several attempts
to lead the "cheering again, but
police gently, nailed him and kept
him under guard. The student sec
tion rose in protest at the police
The Carolina Card Board and
the University Band combined
their talents to present a Three-Blind-Mice
act during half time.
Drum major Ed Stevens and ma
jorettes Louise Crisp and Tish
Coiey performed as the mice while
the band enclosed them. The 20
stunts display included a "safety
slogan, a Christmas seal appeal,
and a "King Carl" stunt, as the
last one. " .

put across a touchdown, when a
score would put them in the lead.
Al Mueller; a sophomore block
ingback from Little Falls, N. Y.,
who had not even dressed for a
game previously, led the charged

the old Justice days, with the Car

the yelling student stands.
The Carolina drive began af
ter Notre Dame appeared on the
way to its third score. A pass by
quarterback John Mazur from his
own 17 was intercepted by line
backer Bill Kirkman - on the 12.
He got off a bad lateral to Bud
Carson when he - was tackled on
the 15, but the Carolina safety
man picked it -up off the ground
and carried down the Irish side
line to the Notre Dame 46.
The Tar Heels were penalized
back to the 39 for using hands
on offense, but Mueller carried

game on defense, broke through
to stop Gravitte at the four on a
buck over left guard.
On fourth down Gravitte tried
a pass to Cooke in the far corner
of the end zone, but Notre Dame's
Gene Carrabine deflected the ball
