A couple of Carolina tennis
players were the toasts of Evan
ston, 111., for a couple of days two
weeks ago when the national in
tercollegiate net championships
were in progress.
Herbert Browne, Jr., and Bob
by Payne, Tar Heel freshman
aces, displayed unexpected power
to reach to quarterfinals of the
NCAA meet before being knock
ed from contention by the top
seeded tandem of Bob Perry and
Larry Huebner.
The Sout hern Conference
champions climaxed a brilliant
season in the big event. In dual
meet competition .Browne, a Co-
umbia, S. C, lad, who was the
9 5 0 national interscholastic
champ, and Payne, a Richmond,
Va., State champion, won 20 of
22 doubles matches. The fresh
men played as the Tar Heels'
number two team throughout the
campaign. However, in the loop
championship meet at Davidson
hey won the title, the first in
Southern Conference history cap
tured by freshmen, from team
mates Sam Handel and Del Syl
via, who played a notch above
hem all season.
Following the Conference meet
he yearlings played little tennis
until a week before the NCAA
meet. At Memphis they looked
good in the Southern champion
ships, and both were particularly
strong in singles action.
Browne and Payne were tough
in the early rounds at North
western and surprised the experts
by reaching the quarterfinals. But

their defeat by Perry and Hueb
ner, 6-2, 6-1, was expected. Later
the U. C. L. A. duo was upset by
California's Cliff Mayne and
Hugh Ditzler in the finals 7-5,
4-6, 7-5, 6-3, in an outstanding
display of tennis artistry.
Earlier in the day Perry, seeded
number two in singles play, lost
to Southern California's Hugh
Stewart in the finals of that
bracket.
On the basis of this year's
play, there's a good chance that
the youngsters will go into next
year's meet in a high ranking
seeded position.
Poor Week
For Tar Heel
Graduates
Tar Heel graduates in the world
of sports failed this past week to
live up to expectations, as Vic
Seixas, nationally-ranked no. 1
amateur tennis player and Jim
my Thomas, backstroke swim
ming ace, fell out of the money
against tough competition.
Seixas, the former Carolina net
captain and Southern Conference
singles champion from Philadel
phia, teamed with Eric Sturgess
of South Africa in losing to Frank
Sedgman and Ken McGregor of
Australia in the doubles finals
