With both N. C. State and
Wake Forest having lost two
games apiece in Big Five com
petition, it looks as if the 1929
state title race has turned into
a three-cornered affair between
Davidson, Carolina and Duke.
Somebody goes down Saturday,
for the Tar Heels are to clash
with Davidson in the native
Wildcat lair in what promises to
be another of those epic Carolina-Davidson
fights. Duke and
Davidson clash at Durham on
Thanksgiving Day, and then on
December; 7' comes the monu

Rain and a soggy field com

detriment of training plans for
Saturday's invasion of the lair

Formal practice was declared
out, but the mentors had all the
men take light workouts before
going to the showers.

Davidson game. j

Jimmy Ward, one of South

to the University's "33point

vantage of Saturday's ' game
with the South Carolina "home-
staters to ratten nis season
batting average and step out
front of the Tar Heel touch
down makers.
The fleet left .halfback cir
cled the ends and rammed the
tackles for two more touch
downs, to run his season total to
seven. '
"Eight-Yard" Magner, who
was tied with Ward at five
markers before that South Car
olina game, didn't get to play
much due to a sprained ankle,
and fell behind in the scoring
But Yank Spaulding, the
hefty fullback, was ( far from
idle, and Spaulding, by virtue of
two more touchdowns and two
more placekicks,' ran, his touch
down total up to six and his ex
tra point total up to 10. So, by
virtue of a nimble toe, Spauld
ing still has a slight edge on the
Tar Heel scorers.
Spaulding leads the race with
46 points, to Ward's 42. Mag
ner comes third with 31, follow
ed by Johnny Branch, the sensa
tional sophomore, with 27, and a
trio of right halfbacks tied for
fifth place with 18 points apiece
Strud Nash, Rip Slusser, and

The Tar Heel team, to date, is
averaging 33 points a game, and
if, it maintains the pace, will set
a new ' record for Tar Heel scor

Toe Work Important .
In Cavalier Games
Toe work has always proven
a big factor in the Carolina
Virginia rivalry, to be renewed
here Thanksgiving Day. A field
goal apiece made a 3-3 tie in
1925. Virginia got the field
goal in 1926, but Carolina failed.
The next year the Tar Heels
won on an extra point, 14-13.
Last year, by getting the extra
points Virginia led until the
last few seconds by 20-18,

ing the Tar Heels a narrow

Carolina High In
Nation's Scoring'
The Tar Heels with 231
points to 47 are standing well
to the fore in the national pig
skin chase for points. Southern
California leads the list with
289 points. Only Tennessee,
with 257, and Tulane with 240,
are leading the Tar Heels in the
South. In the State, the Tar
Heels' nearest competitor is
Elon with 98 points, and Duke
with 95.
DUKE upset another dope
bucket by taking the L. S. U.
Tigers in tow by such over
whelming odds. After spending
thre'e very unsuccessful week
ends in foreign territory they
celebrated ;their return home by
routing the Tigers. The Duke
Blue Devil certainly did its work
last Saturday and confirms the
opinion held by many that Duke
is a far from broken team by
the numerous defeats.
life iust in time to get their
finger in the Southern Confer
ence pie. At present they are
ranking with the leaders of the
Conference and pass Carolina in
the standinc:. Duke hasn't lost
any games in the Conference and
though they have won only one
they still have a good chance
for a clean slate. IF they could
dope out plans for the Tar Heels'
downfall things would be rosy
in Durham. (IF.)
Close Scores Mark
Virginia Contests
The North Carolina-Virginia
grid rivalry, to be renewed here
Thanksgiving Day, is one of the
hottest as well as the oldest in
all the South. Figures for ten
games since the war prove the
point. The Cavaliers have
scored 70 points, the Tar Heels
64. The Tar Heels have won
five games, Virginia three, and
two have been ties. Only once
has a game been won by a two
touchdown margin and the
average difference between the
scores has been 4.2 points. The
Tar Heels have won the last two
games 14-13 and 24-20.
Carolina Has Edge
The Tar Heels and the David
son Wildcats have played four
scoreless ties in a series that
dates .back to 1898, and these
scoreless games were only fair
samples of the remaining 20
games on the records. The Tar
Heels have won 17 while losing
three, but they have had a tough
time wanning a lot of the annual
battles. Only fivet times have

touchdowns oyer the fighting

Fysal Makes Good
Ellis Fysal, stocky, hard charg
ing 188-pound son of Wilson, N.
C, is beginning to look like a
fixture at right guard for the
Tar Heels.- Fysal, a converted
fullback,' playing his first year
on the varsity, crashed into the
lineup, over two lettermen, in
the V. P. I. game, and has been
starting every game since. He
makes a great running mate for
the crashing, driving Captain
Ray Farris at left guard..
Place-Kickers Wanted
Chuck Collins, head Tar Heel
mentor, is giving "especial at
tention to his place-kickers . this
week. Captain Brock at David
son is an artist at the game of
making "Point No. - 7," and the
Tar Heels to meet Davidson
there on Saturday, with all their
33-point scoring average a game,
have converted only 15 of 36 at
tempts into extra points.
his colleagues turned the tables
on the Duke harriers last Fri
day and avenged completely the
defeat in. '28. The whole team
showed up well. Besides his
stellar work in cross-country,
Barkley is a prominent miler
during track season. Cliff Bau
com, number two man in varsity
cross country; replaces last
year's track captain, Henderson,
in the two-mile run this spring.
Last season Baucom showed up
exceedingly well in all the meets.
He pushed Captain Henderson
hard in most of the races and is
expected to be one of the best
in the south this spring.
r THE CAKE RACE this year
is being resumed after a year's
lay-off. There was a rebellion
last year against the large num
ber of cakes that Chapel Hill
housewives had been so gen
erously preparing . previously.
Because of this imposition on
so many of the Chapel Hill
women it is understood that
nearly all; of the 100 prizes to
be given away will be in mer
chandise, with the exception of
10 or 15. cakes.
We hope that the noise com
mission will make itself heard.
