Interviews Al Capp
Jam Tin Can
For Costume Ball
By Elsie Lyon
Dressed in everything from red paint
and shaved heads to pillowed stomachs
and mop hair, more than 3,000 stu
dents, faculty, townspeople, and a bevy
of cows, mules, geese and other barn
yard life jammed the Tin Can last
night to celebrate Sadie Hawkins Day.
Al Capp, originator of the comic
strip, "Lil Abner," with Mrs; Capp
racked their brains to choose the best
costumes from among the thousands
Costume Awards v
Most gruesome Sadie Hawkins was
Bandy Mebane, who was suddenly con
fronted with a first prize of one large,
very-much-alive calf. Most appealing
Lil Abner was Jim PritJhett, who re
ceived one" squealing pig right into his
arms, while most beautiful Daisy Mae,
Harriet West, started the pursuit with
a goose in her arms.
Lillian Wheeler walked off with a
turkey as her prize for being the best
Mammy Yokum; Mac Sherman as the
best Hairless Joe was presented with
a pig; sirenish Sadie Hawkins the
Fifth, Marcella Clarke, was given a
rooster as the most convincing Widder
Fruitful and Joe Little, complete with
shaved head, received a rooster for be
ing the best Lonesome Polecat.
The 4th other winner, Tom Beibig
heiser as Old Man Mose, Dan Wil
liamson as Marrying Sam, V Harold
Xrauss, Joe Barrier, and Don Willard
as the Scragg brothers, and Palol'smi
Irving as the mysterious "It" found
that the supply of barnyard animals
had given out before they won.
Midway in the celebration, Dean
House took over the microphone to pre
sent Fish Worley with a wrist watch j
and defense savings bond from the stu-f
dent body "for .outstanding work in
promoting friendship on this campus."

In an effort to stem the trend tow-
rd lowering of scholastic standards
the Monogram ; Club and " among
members of athletic groups as a whole,
the lettermen, in a recent meeting,
voted to form a committee to aid
Andy Bershak in the raising of marks.

resentative from ach team in inter-
scholastic athletics, will aid Bershak
in checking on the scholastic averages
of team members and m suggesting
methods ,of remedying the downward

man of the committee. Bobby Gersten,
Monogram Club president, expressed:
the opinion ..that, more stringent stan
dards would . be enforced.
. "The lax policy that many athletes
have adopted toward training regula
tions has made necessary the under
taking of some stronger methods of
enforcement," Gersten said. Although
no definite plans have been made for
enforcement of strict training rules,
informed sources indicate that the
athletic department is prepared to co
operate with the Monogram Club in
preparing plans for such an under
taking. The Monogram Club proposal for
the revision of methods of awarding
monograms will again come before
the Athletic Council at its meeting to
night. The ."proposed revision includ
es: removing awards from' coaches
discretion and putting them on a stan
dard basis; establishing a service let

managers; and putting au sports ui

turned tonight to the victory column by punching out 27 points
in the first-half and then holding the Richmond Spiders scoreless
during the second half to win their first game in five starts, 27-0,
before 4,000 cold-bitten fans.
Carolina display of power in the first half was equal to that of
the Lenoir-Rhyhe game at the start of the season. From the time
Johnny Pecora ran back' the opening .

first touchdown it was evident that
they were a different ball club than
they have been in the past month.
isot yu seconds alter recora ran
back the opening kickoff the Tar Heels
scored again when the same Mr. Peco
ra, who played probably the greatest
game of his varsity career tonight,
passed to Frank O'Hare to score No.
Touchdown No. three was gained
very easily after Dick Sieck covered
a fumble on the Richmond three. Shot
Cox bucked the ball across in three
Those three touchdowns completed
Carolina's scoring in the first quarter.
In the early minutes of the second quar
ter sophomore Lovick Corn scored the
Tar Heels' fourth touchdown as the
climax to an 80-yard advance.
After that scoring spree in the first
half, the Tar Heels stayed on the de
fense for the major portion of the
second half... They were satisfied in
punting on second and third downs
and protected their lead. .
Richmond's passing attack its chief
form of offense all night was an ever
dangerous threat, but the Carolina sec
ondary managed . to keep all of Lem
Fitzgerald's passes from doing much
damage. Once the Spiders got to the
10-yard line, but the Tar Heels stif
fened and took over the ball. Rich
mond got seven first downs passing.
Carolina was strictly a first half
team tonight different from past Car
olina teams but that first half spree
was enough to insure it a victory.
Richmond, game to the end, was
unable to offer any consistent attack,
but the running and passing of Lem
Fitzgerald was a marvel to watch. The
148-pound back was hit often and hard
by the heavier Tar Heels, but he man
aged to come out of the fray uninjured.
Brightest performer of the Tar Heels
on Jhe offense was Johnny Pecora,
but the running of Shot Cox and Lo
vick Corn was also Outstanding. Clay
Croom, the short while he was in the
game, looked good, but he was forced
out after about three minutes of play
because of a leg injury.
The entire team stood out on de
fense. . Time after time the line rushed
in to throw the runners and passers
for losses. Dick Sieck, and Carl Sun
theimer were the top line performers.
Coach Ray Wolf started an all senior
team except for Johnny Pecora and
Dave Barksdale, and the seniors res
ponded in exactly 10 seconds by scor
ing a touchdown with Johnny Pecora

pre-World War days when the "on to

several respects: first time a Tar Heel

for in the" nine games played hereto

out for revenge for the first time.
