'Trouble Has No More Troubles
Because Of Hit-And -Run Motorist
By Charles McCorkle
A mottled brown boxer puppy
named "Trouble" died on Frank
lin Street yesterday afternoon.
The dog was the -victim of a
truck which never slowed its
pace as it ran the pup down with
its hind wheels. "Trouble" never
knew what hit her.
Football player Bill Wardle and
his wife, owners of the young
animal, knew they were at fault
for letting "Trouble" run loose.
And witnesses said the truck
driver could not be blamed the
dog scampered out suddenly from
between two parked cars in front
of the Alpha Gamma Delta
But the Wardles couldn't un
derstand why he raan neither
stopped to investigate nor slowed driver if he knew he had hit
down as he ended the life of their dog in Chapel Hill.
A Duke student from Connecti
cut named Bill Williams, two cars
behind the death vehicle, put on
his brakes as he saw the
dog's body crumpled in the street.
When he realized that several
people standing on the sidewalk
were going to the animal's as
sistance, he stepped on the ac
celerator and headed out the
Durham highway after the truck.
Williams caught up with the
vehicle as it puiled into a narrow
driveway just beyond JackV
Drive-in near Durham. He noted
down the license plate, North
Carolina 903-924, and asked the
Yes, the man knew he .hit the
dog, but he couldn't avoid the
accident, Williams quoted him as
saying. Then, Williams reported,
the man changed his mind and
denied thai he knew he struck
A short time later, armed with
Williams' information, Wardle,
student Perry HudnelL Walter
Carroll of The Durham Morning
Herald, and I went out the Dur
ham highway to find the owner
of the truck. The time was about

George said, is the legislative
log-jam piling up in the Senate.
Pushing aside President Tru
man's recommendations, the
House committee today approved
new tax cuts this time about
$10,000,0t)0 for coal and metallur
gical limestone producers.
This action came right behind
yesterday's flat committee re
jection of the President's pro
posal for $200,000,000 additional
taxes on oil, gas, sulphur and
non-metallic minerals operators.
Meanwhile, Lreorge, wno is

Bill Albans, the versatile star
from Npw Jersey, led the Tar
Heels by setting a new Confer
ence record in the 220-yard low
hurdles, tieing the Conference
record in the 120-yard high hur
dles and setting a new Fetzer
Field record in the broad jump.
Albans ran the low hurdles in
23.2 seconds to break the old rec
ord of 23.5 set by Kinzle of Duke
in 1938. His time in the low hur
dles was 14.3 tieing the mark set
by Bill Corpening of Carolina
He broad jumped 24 feet, 10
inches to set the new Fetzer Field
record, almost nine inches off
the conference record of 25 feet,
six inches set by Wally Hamm
of Georgia Tech in 1928.
The track was very fast and
the weather perfect without a
sign of , a breeze, conditions
which may produce some of the
best performances in Southern
Six Carolinians took first place
in their qualifying round which
puts the Tar Heels into good po
sition to break their own record
of most points scored in th Con
ference meet and makes them al
most a sure thing to win the meet
for the fourth straight year.
Bob Kirk, defending champ in
the javelin, again leads the field,
having tossed the spear 198 feet,
seven inches. Three other Tar
Heels also qualified giving Car
olina a great advantage in this
event. They are: Skeets Baldwin,
Bob Payne, and Bernie Harris.
Another Tar Heel defending
champ, Hal Holden in the 880,
turned in the top time for his spe
cialty, being clocked in 1:56.5,
two-tenths of a second better
than his winning time of last
year. Maryland, represented by
Jim Umbarger and Tyson Cream
er, and Duke with Henry Bullock
and Art Loub, each sent two men
into the finals.
One of the top fields of the day
was produced in the 440, which
saw all three heats won in less
than 50 seconds. Gene Brigham of
Carolina won his heat in 49.7,
Wilbur Harrison of VMI took first
with the time of 49.4, and Charlie
Chambers of N. C. State won in
the time of 49.3. Last year the
winning time in the finals was
50.1. Buddy Grisso of Duke, Lad
die Terrell of Carolina, and Tyler
Wadsworth of State round out
the field which should produce
one of the most exciting races of
the meet today.
The hurdles ought to be two of
the high-scoring events for the
'Tar Heels, who have three men
in the fields of six for both the
low and highs. Albans, Bob
Morrow, and Garrett Fitzgibbons
will compete in the high hurdles,
while Albans, Morrow and Merl
Norcross run in the low hurdles.

well represented in these events.
