THE NEW CAROLINA FOOTBALL COACH
may be Wilbur Hickey, younger brother of Jim Hickey
who resigned several weeks ago. Wilbur is listed by
informed sources as a prime darkhorse candidate.
For the past 10 years, Wilbur, who has warmed
the bench for City College of New York during the
winless 1952-1956 era, has taught elementary science
and physical education at East Overshoe Junior High
School near Creedmoor.
During that span, his touch fooball teams compiled
a 28-72 record and won the Butner League title as
conference doormat nine times.
COMING SOON IN YOUR DTH . . . are a series of
articles dealing with sports of all sorts. The lineup
of authors soon to appear here is impressive: Bridge
by Chuck Niewierowski, Bird-Watching by Seymour
Fly, Boating and Sailing by Rodney Stern, Capsizing
by Mrs. Rodney Stern, and Horse Racing by Ricardo
Other illustrious columnists slated to appear in the
DTH include Spectator Sporting by Jack Horner, a pun
gent column on Atlantic Coast Conference basketball
by dapper Frankie McGuire, and American Athletic
Conference Politics by the ACC Executive Committee.
Also, Lamont Cranston will pen an illuminating
series on "I Left the YMCA League for the ACC: An
Official's Story," and DTH Sports Editor Tread Sand
well will reveal after receiving thousands of requests
the real story behind Chuck Erickson's secretary,
who ran him out of Erickson's office a week ago.
FROM THE SPORTS BOOK SHELF . . . come
several new works written by the sportsmen of the
times. "Open Mouth, Insert Foot," the Frankie McGuire
autiobiography, will be released next week, and will
be digested into a four-part series by his No- 1 fan,
DTH sports writer Dennis Sanders. Also due to be
released within the week are: "How We Stopped
Lew Alcinder," by the Duke University basketball
team; "The Bull in The China Closet," by Tulane's
7-0 center, Craige Spitzer; "I Practiced Four Years at

AWARDS PILED UP THIS WEEK ... for the

HINTON HEAD ISLAND,
S. C. (AP) The Atlantic
Coast Conference moved to re
store order to its troubled
house Friday by decreeing that
all league basketball games in
volving the University of South
Carolina this season may be
moved to neutral courts if mu
The action at the conference
meeting followed an apology to
the conference Thursday by
South Carolina President Dr.
Thomas Jones for statements
made by basketball coach
Frank McGuire regarding the
ineligibility of his sophomore
star, Mike Grosso.
Dr. Ralph Fadum of North
Carolina State, conference
president, recessed Friday's
meeting for 30 minutes to con
fer with faculty chairmen of
the member schools.
When the meeting resumed
Fadum announced the action.
He said it was taken "because
of the climate created by
events of the past several
months." He added that the
conference was "conscious of
the fact that basketball games
can create an explosive situa
tion." The ruling allows any school
that "considers it inadvisable"
for its basketball team to
play at South Carolina may
attempt to reschedule the
game on a neutral court.
Should it not be possible to
arrange this, the came would

Mr. Moe's Miracle
"Wilt," the TV interviewer continued, "what ad
vice would you give to all the young boys out there
who dream of some day becoming great basketball
The great center for the Philadelphia 76ers ran
a huge hand across his black goatee and looked into
the camera. "Practice. If you have dedication and
desire you can get anywhere in sports."
Come now, Mr. Chamberlain.
Everyone knows that to be a college hoopster, much
less a pro, you must start dribbling drills in your play
pen. The first recognizable word you utter cannot be
a gurgling "ma-ma". It must be a prophetic "baskee
baule." If you don't tower above your kindergarten play
mates, forget a future in the sport. If your hands
aren't lightning quick fate has limited them to making
pot holders instead of baskets.
To play the game in college you must make a high
school team by your sophomore year, become a star
as a junior, and then sit back and ponder the scholar
ship offers as a senior.
Everyone knows these things. Everyone, that is,
except a young revolutionary named Donnie Moe.
Moe puts all the cynics back under their rocks and
brings cheers for the die-hard supporters of athletic
amaturism. And besides all that he makes Horatio
Alger look like a born looser.
You see, Donnie Moe never wore a high school
basketball uniform. He was too big and too good
and they wouldn't let him play, you're thinking. Wrong.
"I was only 5'6" my junior year," Moe explained,
"and that was just too small for the team. I grew to
5'9" my senior year, and I guess I might have made
it. I'm not sure.
"I Practiced Every Night"
"I live in Brooklyn, and I practiced every night
in the YMCA. In the summer I worked as a counselor
at a boy's camp in Pennsylvania. Rusty Clark was
there three years ago. We played a lot of 3 on 3.
Rusty has really improved since then."
Moe hasn't done so badly himself.
Before every game he goes through the warm up
drills wearing a blue jacket with his name printed
in white letters across the shoulders. Last year he
played in almost all of the varsity games. So far this
season he's seen action against Penn. State and Tu
lane. Moe dreamed about doing these "things' for a long
time. He still can't believe they've all come true.
"I never came down here expecting to play college
ball, but I decided to go out for the freshman team."
Moe was red-shirted his sophomore year but prac
ticed with the varsity. Last year his dream was realiz
ed. When people think about Carolina's '65-66 basket
ball team the chances are they won't remember the
name Donnie Moe. But perhaps Moe, more than any
one, symbolized that team's desire and determination.
Now there is another basketball season and another
and better Tar Heel team. Perhaps they will do great
things on the hardwoods this winter. But regardless,
Donnie Moe the man who never played high school
basketball is a part of it all.
Mr. Chamberlain may be right.
