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 yard. 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, TIMBERS COVER INSIDE OF CHURCH Silent Pews Sit, Filled With Debris, Inside Chancel (Buddy Spoon Photo) AFROTC Juniors Take Over Senior Offices Mardi Events Gras Set Nature Girl WINC.ATE.

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 Gym. 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 Maryland I erps In 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. Record 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. Powerful Counterpunch 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 O'clock. i
