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.

FRANKLIN ST. Sanders ! ?n The ACC May Play USC Away 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 tually desired. 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 be cancelled by mutual con- sent. mm I 1 Give the gift that goes on giving -a good hook. From the Intimate! Gift-Wrapping's Free, as always!

C. State on Navy Field at 3 p.m. This will be the Tarheel Rug ger's fourth game this fall. The fall games have been primarily practice scrimmag es. The team's main season will last from the middle of February until the end of May. The club has scheduled eight matches and two tourna ments for the spring semester. The club began in October with a nucleus of four players. In the last two months, it has grown to approximately 35 For the same reason, Fad um said, South ' Carolina was granted the identical option re garding games it has sched uled for other conference courts. In view of the possibility that the required 14 - game conference schedule may not be completed by all teams un der these conditions, the con ference had waived the rule. The basketball committee was instructed to arrange the seedings of the tournament at Greensboro, N. C, in March if all teams do not play the usual 14 - game schedule Regular - season standings determine the seedings of the tournament, in which all eight teams compete. Representa tives of schools present said they had no immediate know ledge of any game changes. Eddie Cameron, Duke ath letic director, said sucn ac tion has been contemplated by ship or grant applicants. Here Duke, but no decision has been tofore, only college board tests made. Grosso, a prize sophomore from Raritan, N. J., was de clared ineligible last October by the ACC Executive Com mittee. McGuire charged the action was directed at him and has said publicly, among other things, the conference has been lined up against South Carolina.

TROY'S STEREO CENTER 135 E. Franklin S23-E5S1 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 stars?" 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.
