Tar Heels Taste Victory
COLUMBIA, S. C...Nov. 15 'Mid fumbles and offside penalties
Carolina finally got its offense rolling here this afternoon and found
out that there's nothing like winning a football game. The Tar Heels,
14-pomt underdogs at game time, minced the South Carolina line,
ranked fourth in the nation before today-on rushing defense, for
four touchdowns, by far the most productive effort of the season.
This first victory of the year was especially sweet in that it
disclosed better things to come. The brunt of the Carolina offense
fell on the shoulders of freshmen and sophomores. In fact, the big
show of the day was freshman Flo Worrell, a former junior varsity
star, wno made nis tirst offensive
Worrell scored two touchdowns,
which carried 50 yards. In addition to that he madesome of the
most exciting field running a Carolina back has shown, since the
days of you know who. He led both teams in the individual statistics
with a personal mark of 120 yards, well over the Carolina team run
ning average for the year.
Newman Runs And Passes
Marshall Newman, the freshman quarterback who heretofore.had
stuck to passing and sending his backs through the center of"he
line, found out that he himself could run the ball. He looked much
better on the option play today and showed a good bit of speed in
running something which he had successfully kept concealed until
today's jubilee. He set up our first touchdown when with the ball
on the 50-yard-line he faded to pass, saw daylight between a host
of Gamecock rushers, and dashed 40 yards to the SC 10-yard-line.
He then had Larry Parker hit for five. Worrell tried the center
again but failed to gain one of his few misses of the day. The end
of the quarter caused the ball to be moved to the other end of the
field, but on the first play of the second period Parker took a hand-off
and skirted the right end and slid into the end zone, safely inside the
red flag.
There were others of coach Carl Snavely's band of young'uns
who contributed to this rebirth of football freedom. George Wallin,
another Jayvee convert, played a good game on offense and defense.
His powerful running looked most impressive to press box ob
servers. Larry Parker made his best showing of the season, too,
running with the same form that carried him to great high school
honors two years ago. His slippery fingers held his gaining down,
but outside of his fumbling, his performance was more than credit
able. Pass Defense Still Weak
But all in all it was a team performance that brought this
first victory in 12 straight games. Not since October last year, when
we beat these same Gamecocks, had we won a game. Our pass
defense still looked weak pitifully weak at times and South Caro
lina quarterbacks Johnny Gramling and Dick Balka capitalized
to spark the Gamecock offense.
The first SC score was set up on a long pass from Gramling to
end Clyde Bennett, and their second came on a pass from Gramling
to Bennett again. But despite this weakness, the Carolina defenders
seemed to come up with the ball when they had to. When the
South Carolina passers started frantically filling the air in the
closing minutes the defensive backs did their finest job. Safetyman
Albert Long grabbed one on the
and ran it back 25 yards to end the South Carolina threat.
It looked for a while that we were going through another game
just like the other ones. We fumbled on our. second play from
scrimmage, one of our seven bobbles of the day, and they re-

Carolina went into the lead
shortly after the start of the sec
ond period. South Carolina back
Bobby Drawdy fumbled on the
Tar Heel 35-yard-line after mak
ing a first down, and safety Al
Long recovered for North Caro
lina. The Gamecock defense stopped
the Tar Heels after they made a
first down on the 50. Newman
faded to pass on third down,
couldn't find a" receiver, and de
cided to run, dodging two men
while racing to the South Caro
lina 10-yard line.
Parker bucked to the five, and
then one play later took a hand-
off and raced around right end
to tie the score at 6-6. Adler
converted to give the Tar Heels
covered. On their first play Gram
ling hit Bennett on the right. One
off - tackle play gave them six
points with only 1:35 gone by.
But we tightened after that and
came back to do our own scoring.
That we did control the ball
most of the day is pointed out by
the fact that Buddy Wallace punt
ed only two times, for a 41 -yard
average. In our other games he
had been forced to kick as many
as 12 times. Coach Snavely pulled
some tricks out that he had been
concealing all year, the most ef
fective of which was a short jump
pass with only receiver out. New
man hit on it three times and it
worked all three times giving us
yardage at crucial moments. An
other thing of beauty came when
Newman pitched out . to Connie
Gravitte, who ran to his right
and then hit Benny Walser on the
goal line for a 15-yard scoring
gem. Walser was Carolina's most

The Tar Heel line recovered a

.The defensive line, which has
had a tendency to fold in the
second half of recent games had
no intentions of folding today.
With a lead to protect through
out the second half, the line gave
ground around mid-field but held
when South Carolina headed to
ward the goal. Francis Fredere
looked good after being switched
to defensive tackle but it was the
work of all the linemen Junior
Seawell, Tom Higgins, Paul
Hursh, an a swarm of others that
plucked the Gamecocks.
It was a great victory one
which had to come but more im
portant than the fact that we won
was the feeling that the players
and the few Carolina rooters of
the day's crowd of 20,000 felt.
This victory was a throwing off
of shackles. We've been imprison
ed in a cage of defeat all year.
This win may be the master key
to the lock.

South Carolina made three
quick first downs after taking
the kickoff, and threatened to
stage a drive, but Junior Seawell
intercepted a pass for Carolina
on the 45 and set up the deciding
Tar Heel touchdown.
Newman completed his third
jump pass, this time to right end
Benny Walser, who took the ball
on the 50 and raced to the South

lead to 21-13.
South Carolina made its last
