'So Many Cute Girls'
"'We certainly are glad so many
cute girls have come out for rush
ing." That was the statement of one
sorority, as the first hectic round
of rushing wound up.
By now the rushees have had to
cut down to four the number of
sororities they will visit tomorrow
night. Monday it will be three.
Wednesday and Thursday mark
the end of rushing with grand din
ner parties staged at each of the
houses to tempt, prospective pled
ges. The sororities are all pleased
with the number that have come
out, and think rushing "grand"
fun," besides being the best way
they know of to "meet the new

with traffic jams caused by the

relief when the work was finished.
Police Capt. W. D. Blake said,
"We're expecting a heavy load of
traffic this weekend. That is if the
weather is nice because Carolina's

Some students and townspeople

But most sorority girls think you
can get to know a new girl pretty
well during rushing, and are pleas
ed with the way things are going.
Rushing is tiring, no question

as many as four parties in one
night, But all the girls, actives
and rushees alike, seem to be hav
ing a fabulous time.
By next Friday evening when
the bids are distributed by the

Is Shown By
Registration figures for student
automobiles for this year are 832
as compared to 857 for last year.
This is a reduction of 25 from
last years registration.
There is no way of determining
whether this decrease is the result
of a letter sent to the parents of
all students by Dean of Students
Fred Weaver this past summer.
In his letter Dean Weaver asked
parents to discourage students
from keeping automobiles on the
campus this year.
Dean Weaver wrote the letter as
a result of recommendations made
by the Board of Trustees of the

Carolina's Tar Heels are general
ly considered to be the favorites
as they take the field this after
noon in Kenan Stadium in then-
second game of the season against
the Generals from Washington and
Lee. Starting time is scheduled for
A crowd of 20,000 is expected to

week they opened the season with

The biggest switch will be at the
quarterback position where Lou
Britt will start in place of Marshall
Newman ,the sophomore who was
Britt performed very well on both
offense and defense against State,
and for that reason he has been
elevated to the first string com
bination. The distinction between Newman
and Britt is easy to make New
man is a good passer but weak on
ball handling; Britt is a good ball
handler, especially on the pitchout
plays, but is weak on passing.
One other change will be made
in the backfield, that at the right
halfback position. Connie Gravitte,
who also plays in the outfield on
the Carolina baseball team, will
start at that position in place of
Flo Worrell, last week's starter.
Both Gravitte and Worrell are fast,
hard running backs, but Gravitte
will get the nod because he is
stronger on defense.
Another reason for Gravitte's
elevation along with Britt to the
first string backfield is because of
Britt. Since Gravitte is a better
than average passer, his presence
