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

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.
Dr. Newton, professor of poli
tical science, was hanged in
effigy, Wednesday, November
12, by a group of men students in
The effigy, marked I. G.
Newton, placed in front of the
dining hall by a group of
about 85 men students, is
shown above as it appeared
before it was consumed by
flames. The sign beneath
reads: “We want the game on

front of the dining hall.
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.
Until two years ago the annual
Thanksgiving Classic was a
joint affair and the profits were
shared by each school. A and T
officials reportedly have asked
that a return to the joint-promo-
