Four of the highways leading
cut of Chapel were tied up yester
day afternoon by civil rights
demonstrations which resulted in
S3 arrests and several minor in
cidents of violence.
More demonstrations were ex
pected last night after marchers
regrouped in the Church of God
on Franklin Street in Carrboro.
The highway sit-ins followed
two marches by more than 300
persons earlier in the afternoon.
Demonstrators gathered in the
Church of God between 12 and
1:30 p.m with singing and speech
es by civil rights leaders.
Representatives of all 12 of the
state's Congress of Racial Equali
ty chapters were here for a lead
Demonstrators also came from
i'ie National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People,
iNAACP), the Student Non-Violent
Coordinating Committee (SNCC),
Che Student Peace Union (SPU)
and the Southern Conference Edu
cational Fundt (SCEF).
The first march started from
the church at 1:45 p.m. Pat Cu
sick. SPU field secretary, led the
Bon-violent oath by 280 marchers,
38 of them white.
Floyd McKissick, national chair
man of CORE and first Negro
itudent to attend UNC, led the
march down Franklin Street.
The demonstrators marched
silently in double file to the Post
Office, then turned and marched
back towards Carrboro. At the
Columbia Street intersection they
split into two single lines on
either side of the street and
marched back to the church.
Traffic was held up briefly as
they crossed at the intersections,
but there were no incidents.
Some 60 people joined the
march before it returned to the
church, half of them white.
Back in the church, demonstra
tors were told to leave if they
did not want to go to jail. They
were warned that the next dem
onstration would involve arrests.
More than half the marchers
left at this point, many of them
At 3:30 p.m., 110 silent demon
strators left the church in double
file. They marched to the corner
of Franklin and Columbia Streets
and walked in a large S into the
middle of the intersection.
At a signal from leaders, all
110 sat down.

After about one minute, the
demonstrators rose and marched
back to Carrboro along the side
walk. Some of the marchers stayed at
the intersection and staged an
other sit-down at .4:15 p.m. The
heavy basketball traffic ' was
tied up for 15 minutes before the
police could clear the street.
A crowd of 150 spectators, most
ly UNC students, gathered to
watch and taunt the eight dem
onstrators who were arrested.
Three were white.
Meanwhile sit-down demonstra
tions were occurring on the Ra
leigh Road near the Institute of
Government, the Durham Road,
the Pittsboro Road, the Hills

largest anti-segregation protests ever staged in
the town of Chapel Hill.
The march was minutes over and this small
group of nine had reconvened on the sidewalk
in front of the University Baptist Church. I
moved closer to hear what was said.
"Remember, we are not looking for trouble.
We are only dramatizing the failure of Chapel
Hill to insure equal rights to each of its citizens.
Our only crime is race." The young man. had
the tone of a football coach before a game. One

Smith kept his team running
with the Deacons to the middle
of the second period as Billy and
Charlie Shaffer led an assault,
off the boards and combined for
many easy layups.
But, with the score 67-52 UNC,
he called a halt, and for the rest
of the time, the Tar Heels looked
like they were just biding time
till they could give the coach his
first top-of-the-shoulders ride of

the final ten minutes; they had
started stalling almost too soon.

just 90 seconds left; and by five
(78-73) wih 12 seconds remaining.

settled it with a three-point play

Even the usually placid Dean
Smith seemed caught up in the
excitement. He gave one of
his players an inspired pat on
the backside and smiled.
At the end he -was still smil
ingto the tune of 81-73.
It was a bad day for people
with weak ear drums and for
Deacons. Even Bones McKinney
was slow getting started. More
than five minutes were gone
before he screamed about a call.
But Bones regained his form.
His red socks blazed all after
noon but were often dull com
pared to his face. The Deacon
jumping jack got really hopped
up at the end of the half. He
thought Charlie Shaffer was
goal-tending and let the referees
know what he thought.

that they were a little better
looking than the drunk deacon.

a quite respectable 44.4 them

UNC's Ray Hassell was a sw
prize starter at guard in place of
Cooke and performed his ball
handling chores well.
, The Beaufort sophomore com
mitted three personal fouls fn the
game all offenses against his
cousin, Butch, who is a senior
starter for the Deacons. But it
was Butch's foul on Ray that was
the most momentous. It was the
fifth and disqualifying one that
sent him to the bench with 30
seconds left in the game.
Cunningham said afterward he
thought this was the best UNC
had played all year. The Tar
Heels will need to be just as
sharp in New York Wednesday

and his Gotham teammates hava
waited for a long, long time.
