Much has been said about the fraternity
system on campus and its oncoming
"death" or "revival."
A check among UNC fraternities
following formal rush last week showed
fraternities are not dying but changing into
a more modern concept of brotherhood.
"The fraternities started changing
before the kids got here," said Ernest
Gordon of Tail Epsilon Phi. "Fraternities
are getting rid of their petty traditions."
His fraternity pledged ten men, four
more than last fall.
Bill Mcrili of Sigma Chi said, "Sure,
they're dying, but they can be good if they
try to make something out of them, do
something out of the usual."
Rick Glover of Pi Kappa Phi agreed.
"Maybe fraternities are approaching their
deaths; they need some radical change.
Fraternities may not be meeting the needs
of the people."
Merrill felt fraternities were changing
greatly. "For example, our house president
helped organize the March on Raleigh last
He blamed his fraternity's drop from
ten pledges last fall to five on bad publicity
against fraternities. .
"Fraternities are much more involved
now than they were before," commented
Bill Russo of Lambda Chi Alpha.
The fact remains that fewer UNC men
went through fall rush than in previous fall

its four previous victories.

and struggled to put away unimpressive

considerably smaller turnout then usual'
was Pi Kappa Phi.
"Only about 40 men came through,"
said Glover. "We pledged 12 this fall, 18
last fall. But the quality of pledges seems to
Alpha Kappa Psi, a professional
pharmacy fraternity, pledged 25 men last
fall and only 12 this time. George Mills
attributed the drop to his fraternity's
changing from Professional Fraternity
Council to Inter Fraternity Council (IFC)
"Competition is stiffer in IFC,' Mills
said. He added, however, that about 50
men visited his house, an average number.
Sigma Chi witnessed "quite a
reduction" in the number of people who
went through rush, according to Merrill.
"Ther were about 1 50 last fall, and only
about 25 this fall."
Phi Delta Chi, a professional pharmacy
fraternity, did not lose in the number of
pledges. Chris Morrison said, "The reason
may be because the School of Pharmacy
has increased enrollment."
He said 52, an average number of men,
visited his fraternity. "It wasn't bad for

UNC men pledging was down.

The Tar Heels juiced up their attack on
the ensuing series as tailback Don
McCauley tos ed a long pass intended for
wingback Lewis Jolley.
USC deep back Davies, leading
intercepter in the conference, picked off
the surprise McCauley toss with what
Paul Dietzel called "one of the greatest
plays I have ever seen."
It was the fifth interception of the year
for Davies and yet another big play for the
It was not their last, however.
Tailback Billy Ray Rice broke a trap

two snaps later and sprinted 65 yards for
The Tar Heels were in a blitzing defense
on Young's pass and Rice's run. It worked
The Carolina offense had, by contrast,
functioned smoothly the first time it had
the ball, but it sputtered later in the first
half and then the defense let it down, for
the first time this season, in the second
McCauley's 48-yard jaunt put Carolina
ahead 7-0 with just three minutes expired
in the contest.
He rushed for 95 yards in the quarter,
but had just one in the second, whenttie,
roof fell in the first time.
McCauley finished with 189 yards, his
biggest total of the year.
McCauley's customary heroics were
overshadowed by Gamecock explosiveness
and Tar Heel ineptitude in the second
It was his booming 51 -yard punt that
the shifty, quick Harris returned 97-yards
early in that period to put USC out front
Harris simply zipped through what
Dooley termed good coverage on the punt.
The Carolina coach had said before the
game Harris was the most dangerous return
man UNC had faced in two years.
That was a backbreaker, according to
Dooley, but a demoralizing couple of plays
had preceded it and set the tone of the
Quarterback Johnny Swofford had
moved the Tar Heels to the USC five on
their previous possession. He fumbled
there, however, with McCauley recovering
back at the 29. Swofford fumbled again 21
yard further back down the field on the
next play and Rust Ganas got it for USC.
Suggs passed 28 yards to Mitchell from
the Tar Heel 49 following the Harris return
and an exchange of punts. The Gamecocks
then ran it in with five cracks at the UNC
front and that put the Tar Heels 14 down
The Tar Heels moved within seven
points with a 32-yard drive that required
eight plays late in the third quarter.
They tied the game with a precision
80-yard effort in 20 plays that consumed
half of the final stanza.
McCauley and Jolley got most of the
yardage in the drive, which raised hopes
among the 47,500 fans that the Tar Heels
could thwart the visitors eventually.
Instead, the defending league
champions mustered more firepower and a
long and traumatic afternoon was over.

McCauley Moves Against USC
by Doug Hall
Three radical campus groups have
refused to join area yippies in "cheering at
inappropriate times" when Vice President
Spiro Agnew speaks in Raleigh later this
Leaders of the Students for a
Democratic Society (SDS), Young
Socialist Alliance (YSA) and the New
University Conference (NUC) said they
felt the "cheering" would only serve to
alienate the audience.
Agnew is scheduled to speak Oct. 26 at
a Republican fund-raising rally at
Reynolds Coliseum in Raleigh.
Ron Mendel, director of the UNC
radical coalition which includes SDS, YSA,
NUC and yippies in Chapel Hill, said the
three groups will write a joint leaflet,
explaining why Agnew should not be
supported, and distribute them in Raleigh.
The coalition met Friday to discuss
tactics for opposing Agnew when he speaks
The yippie group still plans to conduct
its Festival of Life, which includes wildly
applauding everything Agnew says and
giving out free food and money.

SDS member John Partrick, "and I feel it
would only serve to antagonize the

as he thought he would be.
"It's a hassle 'getting in touch with
people. I was very idealistic last spring.
There are so many things I wanted to do.
The residence college has improved, but
not as much as I hoped it would.

"After they are there, each group will
sponsor what it wishes.
"These are four separate groups and
each will be doing its own thing."

"But if there are students and workers,
we will pass out literature," he said, "It will
be a political education as a counter-force
against what Agnew says."
John Hutton, a leader of the YSA, said
that the yippies are essentially saying that
they can not communicate with the people
so they will "make fun of Spiro Agnew.
"We are going to go over there and talk
to people," Hutton said. "What we are
going to say is essentially this: 'Spiro

dangerous person; all the time he is

"Agnew is a demogogue who plays on
fears and beliefs of people," he said, "but
