Tis the eve of November, and visions
of bowl games abound in college football
Two teams thinking strongly about

Both teams are 5-2, and William and
Mary is apparently safe atop the Southern

Indians to the same Tangerine Bowl they
lost 40-12 to Toledo last year.

vowed to attempt to have the bill recalled
in this morning's House session.
Andrew's effort has excellent chance
for success in the 9:30 a.m. session.
Following the supposedly final vote in
the House on the restructuring bill, an
attempt was made to recall the bill for
The motion to recall ended in a 53-53
tie, and House Speaker Phil Godwin
broke the tie by voting "no" on the
motion to reconsider.
Both Scott's forces and the supporters
of the Consolidated University were
expected to lobby intensely Friday night
on another motion to reconsider the bill.
The narrow four-vote victory for Scott
in the House followed an emotional
The move to allow absentee ballots in
primaries for the first time in the state
since 1939 was backed by Lt. Gov. Pat
Taylor, an announced candidate for
governor in the democratic nomination in
the May primary.
Taylor held a news conference
immediately before the opening of the
Friday session to call for the approval of
the use of absentee ballots.
"We should go one step further (than
moving the primary date)," he said. "We
should proceed to give absentee ballots in
the primary next year."
The floor fight in the Senate and in
the Rules Committee centered on the
abuses of absentee ballots in primaries in
A number of senators, led by Sen.
Charles B. Deane (D-Richmond), opposed

week should the Tigers beat Wake Forest
today at Clemson's homecoming.
For Carolina to make a bowl game
again, the offense must generate more
points and, of course, the Heels must win
the rest of their games since bowl
competition is especially fierce this year.
The Indians will go to the Tangerine
Bowl (should they beat Richmond)
regardless of what happens today, but
Carolina must beat William and Mary to
retain any hopes.
William and Mary is no VMI to provide
a break in a rugged schedule. The Tribe

speech by Andrews in the packed House
"You are creating a system of pub!:
higher education in North Carolina with
the University of North Carolina a
minority vote in determining the future
of the system," Andrews told the lower
Saying the greatness of the Ur.ivers;t
was not centered particularly m the
system but in the state, Andrews voiced
fears for the Chapel Hill campus.
He added, "This state has produced
only one thing that has achieved national
and international prominence - and that
is the University of North Carolina at
Andrews also decried the portion of
the restructuring bill which "summarily
primaries since not enough time for
consideration of the measure had been
allowed. He warned of serious
consequences that would result if errors
were made in the bill.
Deane said he was not opposed to the
move but more time should be used to
consider the ramification of the issue. He
mentioned the possibility of a one- or
two-day special legislative session early
next year to solve the problem.
Sen. Jyles Coggins (I)-Wake). a
candidate for the Fourth Congressional
Democratic nomination in the May
primary, supported the move for absentee
ballots in the floor debate.
"I would much rather see college
students enabled to vote in the towns
where they reside rather than in the
towns where they go to school," he said.

Coach Lou Holtz has fashioned a
potent triple-option offense, led by backs
Phil Mosser and Dennis Cambal and
quarterback Steve Regan.
Mosser gained 1.3S6 yards last year
and was named Southern Conference
Player of the Year despite a lack of speed
and size. Mosser is 5'9", 192.
Camba., a 225-pounder, runs with

quick release to capable receiver Dave
Knight and Ed Helies.
The Tar Heel defense would appear
