Classics Bout By John Holley The Thanksgiving clash be tween North Carolina College and North Carolina A.&T. looms as one of the biggest and most important grid battles in the state when the two CIAA giants collide in the Carolina Classic in Durham November 27. The game, itself, is a bitter arch rivalry between the two schools dating back to 1928 when the Tarheel teams met for the first time. The game, which was origi nally ticketed for NCC’s sta dium, had been moved to the city’s stadium to accommodate the huge crowd expected to turn out on “Turkey Day” to view this grid extravaganza, has finally been settled on O’Kelly Field. An extra flavor of importance has been added to this game be tween NCC and A.&T. in that both clubs are in the thick of the battle for the conference (continued on page 12) By Samuel Floyd Students rose in violent pro test here recently against Ath letic Director I. G. Newton’s de cision to shift the Thanksgiving “championship” game against A and T from O’Kelly Field to Durham Athletic Park.

A student’s petition of 1,000 names submitted through proper channels brought about thei change of the game site from the Park. Jerome Dudley, president of the Student Government, sent a letter to the Executive Com mittee, which consists of Presi dent Alfonso Elder, Dr. W. H. Brown, dean of the Graduate School, Dr. G. T. Kyle, dean of the undergraduate school, Dr. J. H. Taylor, director of the Sum mer School, Dr. A. L. Turner, dean of the Law School and Mrs. Frances M. Eagleson, registrar, describing the petition request ing the change. The letter also stated, “Since the head coach and entire football team are in disagreement with the change in the game site this change, if ef fectuated, will crush the team spirit and desire to play, thus putting the North Carolina Col lege Eagles at a psychological disadvantage.” The decision to change the site came about in an effort to find means to accommodate the large crowd expected to attend the game. The park has a seating capacity of 5,000. Additional ac commodations were to be made for 4,000 seats. O’Kelly Field accommodateg 5,000 also, but adding extra seats is much more expensive, accord ing to Dr. Newton.
