(AP) No earth tremors shook the
Wilmington area today and a UNC
geologist theorized that 'four pre
vious quakes were man-made.
No "houses' shook, no windows
rattled, no dishes danced and no

had Monday through Thursday as
a result of four earth tremors that
left this coastal section in an uproar.

The office has only a limited

Also on the three memDer panel

The panel discussion will concern

Chiel . S. lioone said they apparentlv spread trout a lire in
the church basement boiler room.
The church was used last night
for an adult supper. The Rev. Mr.
Barron said he was the last to
leave and closed the building at
about 9:30 p.m.
Shortly after 11:30 Chapel Hill
Police Patrolmen W. F. Hester
and Gene Cozart said they were
driving toward downtown Chapel
Hill in front of the Church when
they noticed smoke. Turning into
an alley beside the building they
noticed flames coming from the
basement window in the furnace
i room, and immediately turned ia
i a fire alarm via their ear radio.
Soars Through Chancel
During the succeeding 90 min
utes the flames soared up from
the basement through the chancel
in the 5o0 seat church auditorium,
enveloping the pipe organ and
quickly destroying the newly-decorated
pulpit area. Quickly the
blaze leaped into the loft above
the sanctuary and raced through
th: all wood eaves to the steeple
at the front of the building
About 1 a.m. the holocaust reach
ed its crescendo as the 65-foot
soire roared to the earth, sending
hundreds of spectators and fire-;
men scurrying for safety. Sub
freezing temperatures froze thou
sands of gallons of water which
were poured on the flames, and
created a slippery situation for
salvage workers around the church
j" The main effort of the Fire
1 Department was successfully con
' centrated in preventing the flames
from spreadig into the two story
; Sunday School section at the rear
! of the Church. All Church rec
! ords and almost all equipment
was saved in this area by bucket-
brigade type lines of students who
! carried out a major share of the
i rescue operation.
Presbyterians Feel Loss
Presbyterians across the stale
felt a stake in the loss of the
Chapel Hill church, inasmuch as
a $350,000 building expansion pro
gram, financed by individual con
tributions throughout the Synod
of North Carolina, is scheduled to
begin here imminently.
Of course the entire building
matter was being reconsidered'
here now because of the total loss
of the sanctuary of the church
and the serious damage to the re
mainder of the building.
The possibility existed that the
entire building might be replaced,

Tar Heels Face
By BILL KING
Frank MtGuire and his Carolina Tar Heels luve a score to settle
with Bud Millikan and his Maryland Terps. The opportunity comes
tonight at 8 o'clock when the Tar Heels and the Terps get together
for a mighty important Atlantic Coast Conference tilt in Woollen
It was Maryland which handed the Tar Heels their first confer
ence loss in two years up at College Park Jan. 11 and what was
n ore humiliating was the final score. 74-61. From there the Tar
Heels went on to drop ACC tests to N. C. State and Duke.
This is the season finale for the Tar Heels and it's the biggest
wc they've plajtd bcrt; all year. Still ia Lhi scramble for iiut
racial Contest Tonight
place in the regular season, Carolina needs this one badly in order
to challenge Duke for the leadership when the Tar Heels close out
their regular season in Durham next Friday. Duke and Maryland
played last night.
Carolina comes into this one tonight with a 9-3 conference mark
and 1G5 for the season. Excluding the Duke-Maryland game last
night, the Terps have an 8-3 conference mark and have won 15
while lbsing four for the season.
Carolina won what was perhaps their best victory of the season
Tuesday when it downed N. C. State, 81-69 in Raleigh thus avenging
an earlier setback at the hands oi the Raleigh club. Now the Tar
Heels need a win over Maryland and another over Duke to break
even with the three clubs they lost to during the regular season.
This one won't be easy tor the 'Heels. Maryland brings a starting
lineup with five men averaging in the double figures, plus some
outstanding reserve material. Charles McNeil is the top man for
the Terps with a 12.2 average but Al Bunge, Nick Davis. John
Nacincik and Tom Young all have averages of 10 or better and
that's the Terp's starting lineup.
The Tar Heels, however, have a powerful counterpunch. First
of all there's the ACC's leading scorer and rebounder Pete Bren
naa. Then there's the third high scorer in the conference Tommy
Kearns. Add to that Bobby Cunningham, a scoring hreat of late
and always tops on defense, steadily improving center Dick Kepley,
sophomore forward star Lee Shaffer and Johnny come lately Harvey
Salz and you have a "top six' that could get the revenge the Tar
Heels want so badly.
Kearns, Brennan. Cunningham and reserve Roy Searcy close out
their home career in tjiis one and they'd like nothing better than to
close it on a sweet note.
This one has all the earmarks of a real thriller and a capacity
crowd of over 5.500 is 'assured. A freshman game between the
Carolina Tar Babies and Wake Forest Deaclets will begin at 6
