'Chased Around Pasture'
Death Of Rameses Is Attributed
To Harassment, Heat, Or Old Age
By Bob Slough
'Hi you ask me what killed
Rameses, I'd say those Duke
students worried him to death
last fall when they chased him
around the pasture all night."
H. S. Hogan, the ram's care
taker, was doing the talking as
he looked over a flock of sheep
grazing on the Hogan farm and
told how Rameses died during the
early part of July.
"We are breaking a new ram
now and should have him ready
for the next football game," Ho
gan said. Rameses VIII is a broth
er to the ram that died in July.
The 9-month old Dorsett is the
son of a ram given to the school
by a Carolina alumnus in Texas.
Farmer Hogan stopped, puzzled
a minute, then went back to
Rameses' death: "Or, instead of
those Duke boys it could of been
the heat or just plain old age."
The first Carolina ram was pur
chased in 1924 when Victor Hug
gins, local merchant, was cheer
leader here. Bought by the Ath
letic Association, Rameses made
his first appearance at a pep rally
before the game with Virginia
Military Institute.
The ram made quite a hit with
the students and so did the Caro
lina team as they squeezed by
VMI the next day, 3-0.
The history of Rameses VII is
the most colorful of any Carolina
mascot. He went to New York in
1949 and even caused a traffic
jam while enroute to Yankee Sta
dium for the Carolina-Notre
Dame game.
Even after the football season
was over, the ram and "Bushy"
Cook traveled throughout North
Carolina, appearing in parades.
"Bushy", the bewhiskered char
acter seen s at Carolina football
games, accompanies Rameses on
all personal appearances.
The Ram is not only popular
with Carolina students, but Duke
students as well. "In fact," Hogan
relates, "there was a group of
Duke students over here every
night for two weeks last fall look
ing for the ram."
"They came over here during
the day to find out where we were
keening the ram and then came
back at night to steal him," he
said. "Every night I had to go out
and take care of him."
Sometimes the Duke men got
as close as 50 yards to the Caro
lina mascot but Hogan drove the
ram further into the woods,
The old ram became a pet on
the Hogan farm. "He used to
come by the barn every day for
his feed," Hogan said. Hogan
found the ram dead in the woods
after he failed to show up for his
daily feed
Rameses VIII does not have
horns equal to the old ram but
they will develop as the ram
grows older. "We even looked for
a erown ram in Texas and Vir
ginia but we couldn't find a good
one," Hogan said.

Impresses Brazilian
"I strolled around the campus looking at the old and new
buildings scattered about more or less haphazardly. ..." .
At least, haphazard was the impression of Chapel Hill
gained by a visiting Brazilian,-
Alceu Amoreso Lima, writing in I 1
the current issue of "Americas."
Lima continued, "The flavor of
university life at Chapel Hill was
a happy beginning for my tour of
20 universities."
This tour took Lima through
the South, affording him a close
look at the universities in the
United States in which he be
lieves "lie the secret of the United
States cultural might."
Lima chose the South because
of its closeness to Latin America
and because of the South's social
Redeeming himself for the
"haphazard" remark, he said, "I
strolled around the campus among
trees that were here a century be
fore the university. T wandered
among the forsythia in the aro
boretrum, and spotted the Bra
zilian independence date, 1822, on
the facade of the old theater."
In between looking around at
the haphazard creation of the
University and lecturing to Dr.
Sturgis Leavitt's, Federico Gil's,
and Harold Bierck's classes, Lima
found time to learn more history
about Carolina than most students
themselves probably know.
Lima started his tour of the
South with the "oldest state uni
versity in the country," which
most people do know.
Haphazard or not, Senora Lima
was duly impressed by Carolina,
saying, "The fascination of the
university town is that its whole
life is centered around the school.
That is what lends so much charm
to Chapel Hill.
"Alumni come back to end their
days where their eyes were open
ed to intellectual life. To univer
sity people, years spent on cam
pus are the best years of their
In the universities and in the
South, Mr. Lima saw three things
which warmed him greatly: ex
traordinary economic, political,
and cultural resurgence; close ties
with Latin America, and an at
tempt to resolve problems of ra
cial discrimination.
Duly impressed by the warmth
of friendship, common feelings to
ward racial problems, and the
haphazard campus, all at Caro

Sam Sanders
Is Mew Case
Students Leave
Despite Request
To Remain Here
Samuel L. Sanders, fresh
man footballer from Winston
Salem, was reported yester
day as the fifth case of polio
in the University.
Sanders was scheduled to
play in tonight's canceled jay
vee game. He is being treated at
the University Hospital. His con
dition, and that of Harold "Bull"
Davidson, Tar Heel fullback,
have not reached a sufficiently
advanced stage for proper dia
gnosis, Dr. E. M. Hedgpeth said.
Students earlier were request
ed, not ordered, to remain in
Chapel Hill for the next two
weeks as a precautionary mea
sure. The request, however, ap
parently had little effect. Dor
mitory parking lots were sparse
ly filled late yesterday afternoon
and the outgoing highways were
dotted with hitchhikers.
University officials renewed
their request that students re
main here and refrain from over
exertion, since fatigue lowers
polio resistance.
Meanwhile news came that
Pete Higgins and Bob Barden
were out of isolation and improv
ing very rapidly. Lee Bostain al
so is progressing, Dr. Hedgpeth
said. Higgins is a varsity swim
mer and Barden and Bostian are
on the cross-country team.
Sanders was a spectacular
guard at Reynolds High School in
Winston. He was given all-city,
all-conference and all-state re
cognition in the grid sport, ex
celling also in baseball. He has
a brother, Tom Sanders, who is
a senior here.
Long distance telephone calls
both in and out of Chapel Hill
were reported as doubled in num
ber by a telephone company offi
cial. The official said the polio
scare was the cause of the in
crease, as students contacted anx
ious parents, or vice versa.
Draft Test

Applications for the December
4, 1952, and the April 23, 1953,
College Qualification Test are
