Tar Heels Need
To Defeat VMI
For Loop Crown
By Harry Hollings worth
DURHAM, May 14 Duke scored
iouT time3 in the early innings here
today and "went on to defeat Red
Benton and the Carolina baseball
team, 6-1, to go into a tie with the Tar
Heels, already Big Five champions,
for the Southern conference crown.
With one more conference game on
its schedule the Tar Heels need to
lick VMI in Chapel Hill Saturday to
claim the loop title.
Bill Mock, whom the Tar Heels belt
,ed from the night game in Greens
boro Saturday, handcuffed Bunn
Hearn's men here today with five hits.
Charlie Rich's round-tripper in the
seventh accounted for Carolina's only
While the Tar Heels were failing
to hit with the regularity which had
marked the first two games of the
series, Red Benton was losing his first
game of " the season. Duke punched
out 10 hits, including a two-run homer
and a triple. The loss was Red's first
after winning four straight games.
Having copped the first two games
of the series, Carolina appeared slight
ly off form in today's tilt. The time
ly hitting and" the fast, accurate in
field play was missing. The Tar
Heels commltteed four errors and
three of them figured in all of Duke's
-scoring.-. - - .
Although the Tar Heels did not
play the type ball afield as in the past
games, they could do absolutely noth
ing about Bill Mock's wonderful pitch
ing exhibition. Fanning eight bat
ters and leaving six potential runs
stranded on the base paths, Mock
3topped the Tar Heels all afternoon.
Carolina left two men on base in the
first and sixth innings."

ess Delivers Valuable
Three Months Ago
LONDON, May 15 (Thursday)
(UP) Rudolph Hess, in a secret meet
ing with the Duke of Hamilton after
.his bizzarre "peace flight" to Brit
ain, handed, over valuable information
"of great use to the Britishyin over
throwing the tyranny now existing in
the Reich," it was stated authoritative
ly early today.
Hess himself proposed that the in
formation be used to crush Adolph
Hitler's "tyranny," the press associa
tion said, presumably after British
military authorities had granted his
request that he be permitted to talk
with the duke.
The number three Nazi leader and
deputy fuehrer was revealed to have
met the young Duke in a rendezvous
near Glasgow immediately after his
sensational parachute landing ' Satur
day night on the duke's estate.
Simultaneously it was revealed that
Hess began laying the groundwork for
his sensational flight three months ago
when he wrote to the Duke frantically
urging an attempt to end the "lunatic"
war between Germany and Britain by

harrassed tone last night as he com
pleted preparations for the bloody
softball battle this afternoon which
sees the sizzling seniors draw up be
fore a special team of fourth-year
Duke men this afternoon at 2:30 on
the coed field.
As he picked pebbles out of his
blackened feet, Hardy said "That up
set Tuesday by those lucky juniors
only served to pull us out of our leth
argy; anyway, it was only a practice
game. Well sing a victory song at
our banquet tonight."

Sent out by the University to allj
accepted, freshmen, the freshman
handbook' is the first introduction of
the first year men into their new life
at Carolina. While perhaps it will
not prevent future freshmen from
rushing into the Carolina Inn next
fall and asking what fraternity it is,
the handbook helps to prepare high
school seniors for college 4if e. More
than a guide and moral warning, the
handbook is an excellent substitute
for hazing and other customs which
are so often relied upon to get hay
seed out of freshman hair.
Each freshman handbook takes the
colors of the class just graduated so
that every four years the colors are
repeated. The seniors now about to
graduate pass on red and black for
the class of '45.
Available for the last time today,
junior-senior bids will be given out in
the Y from 10:30 until 12 this morn

dance committees of the two upper
classes announced yesterday.
Ducats for admission to the Pastor
concert tomorrow afternoon are still
en sale from dormitory presidents and
from any member of the Daily Tar
Heel staff for 25 cents. The official
junior-senior bid does not include ad
mission to the concert, Ott Burton,
senior dance chairman, announced yes
terday. Stringent regulations regarding the
issuance of bids have been set in ef
fect by the dance committees. Juniors
and seniors must present their iden
tification cards or an authorization
from the Cashier's office to obtain the
bids. Their names will be checked off
a master list from South building rec

of bids are transferable, however.
