The very mention of a meeting between
Carolina and State teams causes blood to
boil, gives birth to blasphemous bumper
stickers and insures a resurgence of
Most of the time.
The UNC swim team opens its season with
the ACC relays Sunday in Raleigh and, well,
the usual sentiments don't seem to be there.
"Absolutely all we're trying to do is learn a
little about the (UNC) team. I haven't seen
any of them in competition yet," Coach
Frank Comfort said.
While this is Comfort's first season as head
coach, he is not a complete stranger to
Chapel Hill. After serving as an assistant
coach hwefor-the 1967-68 season, he
accepted the top post at Johns Hopkins
University in Baltimore.
His nine-year stay there climaxed in last
season's Division III national
"November is a training month and a
learning month," he said.
There will be no scoring kept in the meet.
The swimmers will compete in three other
meets before the Christmas break: Dec. I the
team travels to face Pittsburgh; Dec. 3 it will
race in the Penn State Relays and on Dec. 6
the Heels face East Carolina.
After a quick Christmas, team members
will go to Florida for 12 days of practice
from Dec. 26 until Jan. 8.
"It's a great place to be for 12 days of
training. We don't swim anybody down
there; we just train," Comfort said.
The 1978 schedule is a strong one. In
addition to conference foes Clemson, Duke,
Wake Forest and Virginia, Carolina will go
up against Auburn (No. 5 finisher in last
season's NCAA nationals), Georgia and
The men's team has a 170-27 cumulative
record against the squads it will face this
season. The women have an equally
impressive 1 1-1 mark against the same foes,
excluding Wake Forest and Pitt, which do
not field teams.
Comfort has inherited two strong teams.
The women's team swam to a seventh-place
finish in the Association of Intercollegiate
Athletics for Women (AIAW) Nationals

coaching this year.

there's more communication." he said. "He's

Club football loses heartbreaker to Robbin
By DAVID POOLE
Calling UNC club football's loss last
weekend to Robbin Community Club
frustrating is like calling the Beatles a
musical group. The term is applicable, but it'
just doesn't say enough.
The Rams dropped an 18-15 decision to
Robbin on a last-period score which can
only be described as a freaky play.
A last-quarter comeback by the Carolina
Rams was capped by a big play on fourth
down. After advancing the ball on the

You're kidding yourself if you think today's compact
music systems aren't up to par with audio components.
The fact is,-9 compact offers some worthy advantages
over a component system. Since one unit usually contains
an AMFM stereo receiver, a record changer and a tape
deck, either cassette or 8-track, the compact requires
little space and virtually none of the wiring required for
separate components. This makes your compact system
"transportable" to any room in your home or even on
vacations to the beach or the mountains. In most cases,
all you do is plug it in and enjoy the music!
