Jazz, Torch Parade,
Cheering Mob Make
Pep Rally Successful
By Charles Kuralt
They had a hot time in the old
town again last night.
Hundreds of students carrying
flaming torches marched down
Franklin Street cheering the Tar
Heels. It looked like a grotesque
mob scene from a Hollywood thril
ler. They paraded once around the
campus, then packed Memorial
Hall for a roaring 40 minutes.
Cheerleaders led cheers; the Uni
versity band played fight songs;
five musicians from the Johnny
Long orchestra played "When the
Saints Go Marching In" And every
body in jammed-to-the-rafters
Memorial Hall cheered for Caro
lina. At 7:30, torch-carrying students
left Peabody Hall chanting, "Beat
the Vols!" Head Cheerleader Jim
Fountain led the assault on Fran
klin Street. The crowd stopped at
the Post Office and let go with a
long, loud, C-A-R-O-L-I-N-A!
Cheers were choked by the

Tommy Tucker, Long
Share Music Duties
With Combined Show
By Louis Kraar
Duke alumnus Johnny Long fin
ished a Germans concert yester
day, stopped to chat at a fratern
ity house, led a Carolina pep rally,
and played a dance.
Meantime, bandmaster Tommy
Tucker played the first half of
the concert, stayed to admire
Long's music, and hopped a bus
to Salisbury, his wife's home, to
rest up for tonight's Germans
The two bandleaders split up
Germans concert duties with some
contrasting, but equally pleasing,
"Gosh, I haven't been back to
Duke since Choo Choo," Long
remarked at the Deke house after
the concert. He leaned back on
the long leather bench in the fra
ternity's basement, listening to
students appraise his music and,
occasionally, Duke University.
"Duke isn't going to mind about
you leading this pep rally, are
they?" asked one of the students
"I hope not," laughed Long.
The blond, fiddle-playing band
leader seemed to enjoy recalling
his Duke days. The less-than-20
years ago when he was a student
seemed short yesterday as he
laughed and talked with the stu
s. Customarily - modest, -he - treats
his musical achievements almost
lightly. He was highly successful
as an undergraduate bandleader
at Duke, but takes little credit for
his early success.
"Before I got to Duke, Kay
Kyser had already blazed a trail
at Carolina. My band got a good
start thanks to the success and
interest shown in Kay's group,"
Long said. Kyser lives in Chapel
Hill now and is retired.
Tucker, who played the first
half of the show, stood in the
wings as Long started and Ad
mired what he heard. "Long sure
has a fine band," he said. "It's not
often that I get to hear another
band," he added.
Tucker, who started his music
making at the University of North
i Dakota "because I couldn't decide
what else to study," emphasized
the sweeter side of the concert.
Long rocked the auditorium with
driving arrangements like "We'll
Build a Bungalow" .and "Shanty
town.' The show's biggest visual attrac- i
tion was Tucker's singer, Clare
Nelson. Miss Nelson, who sings
j a pretty good tune, was Miss
Pennsylvania. Here "The Man I
Love" and "This Can't Be Love"
brought enthusiastic applause, from

Housing office Directors J. E.
i Wadsworth revealed yesterday that
almost fifty students are still liv
ing in dormitory basements on the
jUNC campus. He said, however,
that he hopes next week will see
enough dorm men move into fra
ternity houses to finally write an
end to the ' "basement ' - living"
Wadsworth also stated that plans
are already complete for closing
Alexander, Stacy, and Cobb B
basements and efforts are being
made to move some of the students
into town quarters. All students
who do have to remain in dorm
basements will be living in Cobb
The overcrowded dorms resulted
from an increase in University en
rollment. At one time there were
more than 115 men living in the

The boys from over the moun
tains, the Tennessee Volunteers,
return to Chapel Hill to renew
their old rivalry with Carolina's
Tar Heels today at 2 o'clock in a
homecoming game which finds the
Tar Heels a seven point under
dog. The last time the Volunteers
were here they had a team which
was contending for national honors
and which ended up in the Sugar
Bowl. They won easily then, 27-0.
Today ' Tennessee Is operating
with a new coach, Harvey Robin
son, who replaced the ailing great,
Bob Neyland, and today's Volun
teer team is one which has lost
two and tied one.
Carolina on the other hand is
also rebuilding under a new coach
and has a record of three wins and
two losses, those two losses com
ing on the last two consecutive Sat
urdays. A Homecoming Day crowd of
about 30,000 is expected to be on
hand for the game between these
Coach George Barclay has spent
the week in practice against the
single wing offense which the
Volunteers use, today being the
only time this season he will face
such an offense.
The ever-changing Carolina
starting combination will be es
sentially the same today as it
was last Saturday against the Bull
dogs! The quarterback position,
which has seen four different
players take the starting role, will
be filled again today by Len Bul
lock, sophomore who came into HTs
own last Saturday .
The Tar Heels today will be
; trying to snap a four game los
! ing streak in the series with the
Ivols, a losing streak which began
in 1949 with a 35-0 loss here in
Chapel Hill. At present the series
stands at 13-8 in favor of Tenn
essee with one game ending in a
The Vols have been having their
troubles this year and have won
only two games, those wins com
ing over lowly Chattanooga and
Lousiville. However they did man
age to hold highly rated Alabama
to a tie and they have been im
proving every week. .
The Tennessee backfield is led
by Jimmy Wade, a triple-threat
tailback who understudied Hank
Lauricella. The rest of the back-
field will consist of Ted Schwan
ger, Jerry Hyde and Bill Barbish.
Aside from Bullock, Carolina's
backfield will be the usual Conhie
Gravitte, Ken Keller, and Dick
Lackey. Keller sustained a charley
horse in his leg in the Georgia
game last week and he reinjured
it in practice on Wednesday. How
ever, the Tar Heel's leading
ground gainer is expected to be in
top shape for the game today.
Gravitte, who had a long touch
down run against Georgia called
back for offside, has looked good
in practice this week, and he is
expected to give a good account
of himself today. Lackey, whose 43
yard punting average leads the
conference, has also had a good
week in practice.
Marshall Newman, who was the
first string quarterback in the
first game of the season and who
was shifted to halfback for several
weeks, returned to his original
position during practice this week
and it will be he who will run the
second combination for the Tar
Newman was shifted back to
quarterback to replace Lou Britt
who pulled a cartilege in his left
side in the Maryland game. Britt
was expected to make a quick re
covery but he has not been in
full uniform for the past two
Flo Worrell, a Fleet halfback
who dropped out of sight after
the second game of the season be
cause of a weakness on defense,
has been looking good in prac
tice this week and Coach Barclay
has announced that he will pro
bably see action today.
