To Own Peculiar
By Bob Levin
If all the rabbits who have given
their lives and feet to solve the super
stitious beliefs of athletes were dump
ed into one pot, they'd make one
pretty big stew.
The bing, bat, and bust 'em boys
may not have a monopoly on the odd
causes of good and bad luck, but
they're certainly up there with the
Maybe it's just a disease which
owes its origin to football, but any
how the boys who excel in speed,
stamina, and muscle surely do have
their share of pre-game hoci-poci.
This goes for all athletes in gen
eral, especially football players, and
more so Carolina gridders.
First of all, the general belief that
we always have trouble with Duke
is a superstition of the N'th degree
and should be regarded as absolute
Take Joe Austin, only scorer of last
year's Duke victory, for instance.
Not that he is superstitious or any
thing like that, but when the team
gathers in the dressing room at game
time, Joe is always the last to get in
uniform. Of course, it may be that
Joe is a little slower or has more to
put on than the other boys, but this
has been doubted.
Clay Croom, Carl Suntheimer, and
Gwynn Nowell very conscientiously
roll up their sleeves, and once this is
done, pitch in for the fireworks.
Last week's victory could very well
be attributed to Johnny Pecora, if
you believe in abacadabra and the
like. It seems that Johnny refused
to walk on the field before changing,
saying that he did so for the last
three games and they lost. If you re
member, he was the lad who ran back
the opening kickoff for 97 yards.
Bill Faircloth, fast charging guard,
dreamt last year that he would block
a Duke punt. His dream came true
at the close of the first half. How
about dreaming up a couple touch
downs, Bill? .
Left end, John "Pinky" Elliot, will
never shave before a game and must
have his lucky nickel, while Charlie
Baker believes in having his hair cut
on game day.

Duke- UNC Rivalry Takes
Nation- Wide Significance
By Tom Bost, Jr.
Interest in this sector will be concentrated on Durham tomorrow after
noon, when North Carolina and Duke, arch rivals in all sports, meet in a
renewal of one of the nation's most celebrated rivalries.

vied with Army-Navy in the East, Georgia-Georgia Tech in the Southeast,

dating back 53 years to 1888 when Service and Work Shops in Teacher ed
football was inaugurated in this ucatiori, Monday at 3 o'clock in Peabody
State. One game in particular, in
1889, has been a constant source of
disagreement. Actually no game was
played that year but Duke, then
known as Trinity, and North Carolina
both claim victory on a forfeit.
Erring Record Books
Thus the record books of both in
stitutions show that game as a vic
tory and as a result the won-loss col
umn is slightly different. North Caro
lina statisticians and record keepers
claim 14 wins for the Tar Heels
against 10 defeats and 2 ties. And
Duke's books read 11 triumphs for the
Blue Devils against 13 losses and 2
ties. But both Concur to the number
of total games as 26 and to the first
meeting as 1888.
Saturday's game will be the sixth
between the teams tutored by the
present coaches, Wallace - Wade of
Duke and Ray Wolf of Carolina.
Coach Wade has a one-game edge in
victories. His teams won 27-7 in 1936,
14-0 in 1938, and 13-3 in 1939. Under
Coach Wolf Carolina was victorious
14-6 in 1937 and 6-3 in a stunning
upset last fall.
Duke rules overwhelming favorite

Devils have a perfect record for seven

specialist for the committee on Work

conduct the conference.
Since a great majority of the teach

work, Work Shops, Summer Schools,

For the period from March to De

instructors will be shown preference.
Candidates must request application

DURHAM, Nov. 13. A visit to this
town today showed that the majority
of the Duke students think the Tar
Heels should stay in Chapel Hill to
morrow when they are scheduled to
come here for the Carolina-Duke foot
' And they were ready to prove their
point by giving almost as many points
as a Carolina man desired. Reports
reaching Chapel Hill had been that
students were giving as much as 30
points, but an investigation showed
that only in one instance had a Tar
Heel been able to bet cn those odds.
But it is true that from 10 to 20
points were being given here, and
takers could be found on all sides.
It may be true that the Durham
J folks do feel that Duke's great "bowl-
bound" team will get only a slight
workout against the Tar Heels tomor
row, but no such spirit is in Chapel
The spirit and talk of another up
set victory by the Carolina students
cast a pale gloom on a Duke gather
ing every once in a while, but for the
most part there's only happiness in
Durham about the game this year.
From an outsider's point of view
there's good reason for the Duke stu
dents to think they have another bowl
team this year. The Blue Devils have
been ranked as the third strongest
team in the nation by the Associated
Press. Minnesota and Texas were
named the first two teams. By the At
lantic Football Forecast the Blue
Devils were ranked second behind
Texas with Texas Aggies and Min
Carolina, losers in five of eight
games this year, is ranked way down
the list among the also rans. One
forecast put the Tar Heels 98th in
the nation while another placed Caro
lina even lower.
So it's no wonder that the Duke
students, backing a team which has
scored 236 points in eight games
feel very optimistic about this year's
