s Season Opener Nears
Carolina's baseball hopefuls
are now going through their paces
every afternoon on Emerson Field
in preparation for the first game
next week. Although coaches
Bunn Hearn and Walter Rabb
won't say so, the prospects for a
successful season appear to be
pretty good, what with only
shortstop and third base manned
by newcomers. """"
The coaches have some top
young prospects whom they are
counting on heavily to produce
a well rounded team. Says Coach
Rabb, "If a couple of our positions
develop as we hope, we should
have a team to compare with last
year." The team last had a 16 won
and 10 lost record and ended the
season in a tie with Duke for
the Big - Four championship.
Open To Florida
The team is leaving March 15
for a trip to Florda and opening
games with Rollins and Alabama.
They will play a round robin
tournament with these two teams,
four games in all, and return to
Chapel Hill to npen the home
season on March 22 with Virginia.
The team will play a 29 game
schedule, including several games
with top intersectional opponents.
A-round robin tournament, simi
lar to the one opening the season,
will be held in Chapel Hill with
Yale and Michigan State on
March 29, 31, and April 1.
There are several prospects
for the vacancies left at short
and third by Joe Brookshire and
John Senter. Albert Long and
Fred Dale, both freshmen, are
the. top prospects for the "short
atop position. At third, the top
candidates are Bruce Holt, Ed
Hooks and Bruce Coats.

Athlete of Week
RSWhite Scores In Diving
R. S. White, one of the most
versitile athletes at Carolina, was
a unanimous choice for the
Daily Tar Heel Athlete ' of the
Week for his brilliant perform
ance in two sports this past week.
Co-captain and diver for the
Tar Heel's undefeated swimming
team, and captain and trampoline
artist of the gymnastics team,
White's performances over the
weekend were tops in both sports.
" Friday night the senior from
Lynchburg, Va., took second place
in the Southern Conference low
board diving championships be
hind Bob Stenberg of N.C. State.
Didn't Change Clothes ,
As soon as the. diving had been
completed, White was pulled from
Bowman Gray Pool and, not giv
en time to even change from' his
swimming shorts, was carried by
car to Duke to. participate in the
gymnastics meet. Less than an
hour after completing his diving
White, without benefit of any
rest, took first place on the
trampoline to lead his other team
to a win over Duke, the gym
team's second win of the season.
Saturday afternoon White took
second in the high board diving,
finishing behind teammate Joe
Kelso. White's two seconds gave
him -a personal score of 10 points
for the meet.
This is White's third year on
the swimming team and second
on the gymnastics squad. Many
athletes play two sports while
in college, but few have the stam
ina to carry on two at one time.
