Fail To Stop Powder Bowl Participants
By Jack Claiborne
You got "lady" wrestlers, girl
baseball teams, and women's rol
ler derbies, but here's the very
latest. A pair "of sororities are
planning to participate in a foot
With apologies to the Southern
Conference presidents who ban
ned this sort of thing last Decem
ber, the gals have accepted bids
to play in the first anual "Powder
Bowl" game, scheduled here in
Kenan Stadium this Saturday af
ternoon. You'll be hearing from such
outstanding stars, as Liz (Light
nin') Currie, Nancy (Noo Noo)
Cooke, Jarrin' Joan Steiber, and
"Sweet" Sara Rose-all real gals
will real football names.
The girls, who have been work
ing out in earnest for the last few
weeks under the guidance of six
graduating players off last fall's
Carolina team, really intend to
make a game of it.
And no one is accusing them of
flaunting the recent Conference
rule which outlawed member
participation in off-season bowl
games, because all "Powder Bowl"
proceeds go to the March of Dim
es. To parodize a Shriners' slo
gan, it's a sort of a "pretty legs
run that weak legs -may walk"
The opposing sororities are the
sisters from the Delta Delta Delta
and Pi Beta Phi houses. They Joe Dudeck, and End Benny Wal-
are to be the football teams. But
the entire social circle of the cam
pus is lending a hand in order to
give this first "Porder Bowl"
every air of the real thing.
Other sororities are busy plan
ning half-time stunts, - and the
fraternity men are tuning up the
brass and woodwinds for a jazz
band combo to provide additional
half-time and pre-game entertainment.
