The Rev. Charles M. Jones,

to resign along with all elected

In recent years the minister
has been the target of many
criticisms for what have been
termed his unusually liberal ra

The church officers, the com
mission charged, felt it relatively
unimportant that the church be
Presbyterian "in the strictest
sense" and most of them didn't
adhere closely enough to the
church's Confession of Faith and
Book of Church Order.

26 Year Career;
May Teach Here
By Biff Roberts
Daily Tar Heel Sports Editor
Carl Snavely resigned last
night as Carolina's head foot
ball coach, closing out an oft-
called brilliant career but one
which had been plagued with
losses during the past three
The venerable Tar Heel coach
submitted his resignation before
the monthly meeting of the
school's Athletic Council last
night. After the reading of Snave
ly's letter by council member A.
W. Hobbs, the board voted to ac
cept his resignation.
No successor was named.
The Athletic Council decided to
assign him to other duties in the
Department of Athletics and Phy
sical Education possibly teaching.
Snavely's letter read:
"My appraisal of the football
situation at the University of
North Carolina leads me to the
conviction that I can best serve
the interest of the University and
its alumni by requesting that I be
relieved of the responsibilities of
football coaching and be assigned
to other duties in the Department
of Athletics and Physical Educa
tion. "I hereby request such reas
signment to take effect January
Snavely's resignation came at
the end of a season which had
seen his Carolina team win but
two of eight games. Two other
games, witn tieorgia ana in. in
state, were cancelled because of
polio on the team. His teams dur
ing the last three years had won
only seven games.
Snavely had served 25 years as
a head football coach with 10 of
those years devoted to Carolina.
He sent three Tar Heel teams to
bowl games, in 1946, 1943, and
1949, but was unsuccessful in all
His over-all record included 147
victories, 77 losses and 16 ties.
His 10-year mark at Carolina had
59 wins, 35 losses, and five ties.
Sparked by Ail-Americans
Charlie Justice and Art Weiner,
his teams from 1946-1949 made the
three trips to the bowls, the 194o
and 1943 teams going to the Sugar
Bowl in New Orleans and the
1949 squad playing Rice in the
Cotton Bowl at Dallas, Texas.
In addition to coaching at Caro
lina Snavely served seven years
at Bucknell and nine seasons at
Cornell. He first coached at Caro
lina in 1934, when he won seven,
lost one and tied one, and in 1935,
when he won eight and lost one.
Because of his outstanding re
cord with the Tar Heels in those
two years he moved to Cornell
and coached there before return
ing to Chapel Hill in 1945.
Snavely enjoyed one unde
feated and untied season, this
coming in 1939 when his Cornell
team won eight while losing none.
His best one-year record at Caro
lina was produced by his 1943
team which had a seasonal record
of nine wins and a tie, but bowed
to Oklahoma in the Sugar BowL
Although Snavely's successor
was not named at the meeting
last night, there has been wide
speculation as to the new. coach.
Jim Tatum, a former Carolina
coach, Art Guepe of Virginia, and

of Snavely's assistants have been
mentioned for the post, with Ta
