for SC game
Public will be eligible
for unclaimed passes
By BERNIE RANSBOTTOM
If you go to Kenan Stadium the morning
of the UNC-South Carolina football game to
stand in line for student tickets and there is
no line don't be surprised.
Everyone else will already have his ticket
and will have had it for almost two weeks.
Tickets for the South Carolina game will
be distributed this Monday through
Wednesday under a new distribution system
developed last spring by the UNC Athletic
Council. The new system is an experimental
one, designed to make unclaimed student
tickets for otherwise sold-out games
available to alumni and other members of
the general public.
"Last year we had sold out both East
Carolina and Duke well in advance of the
game," ticket manager Jean Keller said. "We
ended up with a couple of thousand tickets
for both those games because the students
didn't pick up all their tickets.
"It's hard to explain to the people who
wanted tickets and couldn't get them how
you can have a sellout and still have tickets.
"We don't know that we'll generate any
additional revenue with this system," Keller
said. "It would really please us if the students
came and picked up all their tickets and we
didn't have to sell any."
Tickets will be available at the Carmichael
Ticket Office from 8:30 a.m. until 8 p.m. and
at the Carolina Union from 8:30 a.m. until 2
p.m. Oct. 10, 1 1 and 12. Signs will be posted
in the Union pinpointing the location of the
Union distribution site, Keller said.
. The new distribution system will be
similar to that used for basketball tickets.
Each student must present his activity pass
and a valid student l.D. card to claim a
ticket, and students wishing to sit together
must pick up their tickets at the same time.
But unlike basketball-ticket distribution,
the best football tickets will be available on a
first-come, first-serve basis.
Date tickets will be on sale at the ticket
distribution sites on the three days tickets are
scheduled to be given out, Keller said.
Persons who already have purchased date
passes must bring the pass along with their
student l.D. and athletic pass to obtain
Tickets not claimed by students by 8:30
p.m. Oct. 12 will be available to the general
public beginning Thursday morning at $8
Students who have not already picked up
their tickets may claim them with their
activity pass after Wednesday as long as
tickets are still available, Keller said.
"We feel we've given them ample
opportunity to pick up tickets with this
system," Keller said. "Three full days should
"We're trying to make it as easy for the
students as we can. So far, all the reaction
we've gotten, all the students I've talked to
have had very positive reactions to the

Athletic Association, is one of the students
who had input into the development of the
"This was obviously just bad business (to
have unused tickets to sold-out games) and it
was a shame that people who wanted tickets
couldn't get them when tickets were
available," Royle said.

The words on the plaque are probably true. For when the
student body elected a head cheerleader in 1 924, all hell broke
loose. Vic Huggins had arrived.
Huggins gave Carolina its first taste of organized
cheerleading. It was in 1924 that he gave the school its first
mascot, Rameses I, wrote the fight song, "Here Comes
Carolina" and led the most famous march in the school's
Huggins still cheers the Tarheels on, some fifty years later,
but now from the armchair in his den. A lame leg keeps him
from going to many of the games.
He admits he was one of the best cheerleaders in the school's
history. "I ranked right up there with the best of them -"Scrubby"
Reaves, Kay Kaiser and Norman Sper."
Huggins was known for doing the unexpected. "We tried to
have something new cooked up for every game."

If the gubernatorial succession
amendment is approved by North Carolina
voters this November, governors serving
consecutive terms will clearly have more
political clout with the General Assembly,
according to a recently published report by
the Institute of Government.
The report says that because the two-term
system would allow the governor to make
appointments, fire and hire employees and
control the budget for eight years, legislators
may be more hesitant about opposing the
governor. . .
The report says that the governor possibly
could campaign against opposing
legislators, hoping to better the chances of
his programs by causing their defeat.
The report lists some of the other major
changes that will take place if the two-term

"All of our rivals had mascots," he said. "1 went to Charlie

Rameses was a natural choice. "We had a player that we
called the Battering Ram. His name was Jack Merritt. I
thought it was only proper that we had a mascot in his honor."
Rameses was such a success that Huggins decided in the fall
to introduce the ram to Carolina basketball. He built a
gigantic star that illuminated the words "Carolina Tarheels"
for Rameses' debut in the Tin Can. He even arranged for a
tux-clad chorus to sing "Hark the Sound." The only thing he
overlooked was the fact that the ram was not house broken.
"That crowd made so much noise when they saw Rameses
that it scared him." Huggins said. "So there 1 was in the dark

A large scrapbook with red roses on the front holds
clippings and picutres from his past. Huggins explained that
the roses were part of an ad he designed that was the first full
color advertisement in a North Carolina newspaper. He
turned the pages eagerly, stopping occasionally to tell a story.

UNC may have a fall break in October
1978 if a proposed calendar is approved by
various school officials, including
Chancellor N. Ferebee Taylor.
The proposed calendar for next year,
which was drawn up by student committee
members Nick Long and Arnold Crews, lists
Oct. 16, and Tuesday, Oct. 17. as vacation
days. Under that schedule, classes would
begin Aug. 24 and end Dec. 7. Two class days
would be added just before exams.
Long said Tuesday that he felt the
proposed calendar is the best way to
implement a fall break into the UNC
academic calendar. He said any fall break
would have to be in mid-October in order to
be most profitable for faculty, staff and
students. By falling between the Labor Day
and Thanksgiving vacations. Long said, it
