It's that time again. Yep, it's time to
load up the pickup, strap the shotguns to 1
the. back of the cab, and head on over to
the Hill to watch our boys whip the stuf
fing out of those blasted Tar Heels.
Grab your skull cap, hook on your red
overalls; this weekend the N.C. State
football team is gonna crack some skull
Yeah, they got a right fine collection of
horses in the backfield: what with Kelvin
Bryant, Ethan Horton, and Tyrone An
thony, they can run all day! And Scott
Stancabbage, he's got a good arm, but he
ain't the regular starter, so maybe we'll
hand him his head. And their all-conference
guards Spruill and Drechsler
man, I can't pronounce his name right
ever, well they're pretty good, but our
boys've been raised right on the farm.
They don't go to no pinko liberal college
where all the good American blood has
been diluted by all that sex and drinking,
No sir! We got Tol Avery and Ricky
Wall the best darn passing combo in all .
of Raleigh. And we got Joe Mcintosh, he
led the ACC in rushing last year and he
runs easier than a heifer dropping calves.
I mean it, man, we got Eric Williams too,
and he was picked All-American by that
girlie magazine that all those weak UNC
guys buy Playboy. They can't get real
girls anyhow, not like the prime -stock we
got here." Man!
Now North Carolina's got a right fine
defense, with linebacker Mike Wilcher,
and cornerback Greg Poole he covers
pass receivers, you know and tackle
William Fuller, and a whole bunch of
'other big guys. Boy, they got the No. 1
.defense in the entire red, white, and blue
But they can be beaten. Them miners
from Pittsburgh kicked hell out of them
all over the field up there in Pennsylvania
that's up north and just wiped them
out totally 7-6. And Vanderbilt gave them
quite a scare, and Army, well they ripped
Army, but what do you expect from a
bunch of liberal commies, trying to un
dername the armed forces of the U.S. of
A. like that? And they shut out Georgia
Tech; but heck; they ain't even in the con
ference yet, so that don't matter.
The Wolfpack though, man, we got off
to a good start. Coach Kiffin, ain't he
crazy though? He got the Pack roaring to
a 3-0 start as we killed Furman and Wake
Forest and slipped by East Carolina. But
just like a national champion we bounced
back from that unlucky break of losing to
Maryland by wiping out Virginia 16-13.
And now we've had two weeks rest too.
Those Tar Heels are just dead meat.
Think about it. We've played the tough
contenders like Virginia, ECU, and Fur
man. If we just get by UNC, and there's
no reason we shouldn't; I mean, they
might have a wee bit more talent, but we
here at State have- got the character and
intelligence to make up for anything
that's lacking. Besides, when you go to
school in an urban metropolis like
Raleigh, you pick up in the streets all the
toughness and savvy you need to win.
It's sort of like living in the woods. I
remember hunting in the woods with my
daddy after working in the fields all day,
and we would take our buckknives and
hack through the forest searching- for
deer." We never caught anything, but
man, it was tough, just like football.
So when we go over to that crazy hot
bed of diluted liberal garbage, you just
watch, we're going to kick some tail' just
like when I used to go hunting. You

in animal husbandry at NCSU until they

out, is sports editor of The Technician.

New fad invades ' emmpus; fun for (all hut cows
By L.C. BORDEN
Moo U. Staff Writer
Cow tipping is fast replacing tobacco spitting as the
favorite weekend activity of N.C. State fraternities.
No, it's not the 15 pefffent that State students leave their
favorite waitress or bmaid after a night on the town.
Cow tipping, simply put, is the art of knocking a sleeping
cow off of its feet. (All State students know that's how
cows sleep.) And it began in September, quite by accident.
Billy Joe Snodgrass, president of the Tri-Mu's, and a
few brothers sneaked into the Agriculture School Vcow:
barn to retrieve a pouch of Red Man Snodgrass had lost
during that day's Animal Husbandry class.
Well, the boys had had a few too many Red, White and
Blues, and the sight of a sleeping cow in one of the bam
stalls was too great a temptation for burly Moonpie
Johnson. Remembering a childhood prank he saw back
home in Spivey's Corner, Johnson eased toward the side
of the cow, and with a firm shove, knocked the sleeping
cow off its feet.
"Shucks, what a rush," Johnson said. "Really, it's not
that hard to do. Ya just gotta sneak up real quiet-like and
give old Bessie a good shove."
After the shove, Johnson said, it is all up to gravity.
However, he also warned that once the cow is tipped, it is
imperative that the person get away from the cow.
"Man, after she hits the ground she's rip-snortin'
mad," Johnson said.
But this latest fraternity activity is being met with ad
ministrative resistance at State.
"This has been going on for years and I'm sure it will
continue until, well, the cows come home," Wrinn said.
Cow tipping has become so popular during recent
weeks at State that the Agriculture School has begun a
patrol of the barns and has announced a program of
psychiatric treatments for chronic tippers.
"Shucks what a rush. . . Ya just gotta sneak up real
quiet-like-and give old Bessie a gqodshove j
; - Moonpie Johnson
"We cannot allow the destruction of valuable university
property," said N.C. State Dean of Agriculture Clay
Fields. "Besides the damage to the cows, as a prank this is
utterly ridiculous. I wouldn't doubt that some Carolina
students had something to do with introducing this to the
university. Anything to make us look foolish even when
we don't deserve to."
Cow tipping is not an uncommon occurrence, however,
said John Wrinn, a state agriculture specialist.
"Yes, we had to crack down," Fields admitted. "You
might call this our new Sacred Cow policy."
, But all of this aclministrative pressure to end the activity
has caused a stir among the school's fraternities.
"Look, we pay student fees and the cows are bought
with our tuition," Snodgrass said. "Watching the football
team isn't near as much fun as cow tipping. I think we
have a legitimate beef."

He reported active trading for trucklot young turkeys

potatoes and turnips were growing, but a loss was taken
during the year on yellow corn.
"We got shelled on the corn," Donald said. "It's a
real flaky business you know, but shucks, the industry
will be popping again in no time.

. The big city turmoil of life on the NCSU
campus sure can get to a body sometimes.
After a long week of struggling with class,
not to mention fighting downtown Raleigh
traffic, what with all them cars whizzing
down Hillsborough, the place to go has no
doubt got to be Fuquay-Varina.
Fuquay-Varina offers everything a State
student could ask for, why even more. It's
only 15 miles away. That equals out to
about a 10-minute drive in a souped-up
engine-red Chevy Nova, or 45 minutes by
You kn8w you're getting close to Fu
quay when you see the mass of signs on the
right-hand sign of the road, the top one
proudly proclaiming "Tobacco is beauti
ful." And once you drive all the way
through town, you can see first-hand why
this is so in Fuquay. You see, there's more
tobacco barns than pool halls in this town.
Now Fuquay has changed a lot in the
past few years. You notice the difference
right off when you hit the outskirts of
town. Whereas the Tastee Freeze used to
be the first big spot in town, some big city
slickers have put up this big new mall. Of
course, it does have an arcade, The Drop
Zone, and a Big Star grocery store and
even a McDonalds. But it just ain't the
same as the good ole Tastee Freeze. That's
got to be one of the best flannel shirt hang
Once you hit the heart of downtown,
after the third stoplight, you get to the real
meat and potatoes of Fuquay. But even
here changes are "all too obvious. At the
corner of First and Main, the New Fidelity
Bank has erected one of those fancy,
architecturally-perfect buildings that's -at
least five stories high and has more glass
than brick. It looks mighty odd right
across the street from the Bag n' Sav Food
Main Street also boasts lots of other
stores to meet just about any shopping
need for the average State student. There's
The Western Auto, where you can get
shovels to muck out the barn, and
Elmo's-B.J. , Fish Men's and Boy's
Clothing and Ladies Apparel store, where
you can find plenty of flannel shirts and
over-alls for the Saturday night social.
Buf getting back to the real point of this
story, Friday nights are where it's at in Fu
quay. There's the main drag in town, and
it's only two blocks long so you don't have
to worry too much about wasting gas. And
there's the Bingo Junction, which you pass
on your way out of town. Heck, you could
even win money with Bingo on a Friday
night instead of blowing it all on sodas and
, chili dogs from the good ole Freeze.
And of course there's The Pantry park
ing lot. You can pick up munchies, sodas,
or a pack of Red Man Chew, or just hang
out and be real sociable. In any case, a
State student can't go wrong if he goes to
Fuquay. It's an irresistable break from the
drudgery of the average day of milking
them cows and slopping them pigs.
