" PAGE THREE FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 1949 THE DAILY TAR FTkvki from) (Bin i Carolina Favored In Swimming Test With Georgia Club By Larry Fox Had today's meet with Emory been scheduled several weeks ago, the Carolina swimmers would undoubtedly hav? been ruled heavy favorites, but illnesses have sidelined several of the top local mermen and so the Tar Heels will have only a slight edge when competition ' begins at 4 o'clock in Bowman Gray pool, following the 2 o'clock freshman meet with Sewannee Prep. Several new faces will be seen in the first two lanes for Carolina this afternoon as Coach Ralph Casey attempts to repair his damaged lineup. Hardest hit of the events is the backstroke where Norm Sper and John Bippart have both succumbed to the same disease glandu lar fever. Bippart has already 1 been ruled uut for the season, but the final decision has not yet been made on Sper. ( . Distances Hit The distances have had the same sort of luck. Jim Thomas has not been in the water since the Ohio State meet and will not be able to compete today. He is suffering from an undiagnosed respiratory ailment. Sam Mc-Cauley, who teams with Thomas in the 440, has a six-hour accounting quiz and will be unable to see action. Most of the burden of making up for the missing men this afternoon will be delegated to Jim Clements, ftonnie Basescu, and Bob Hutton, all of whom have seen limited action thus far this season and who will double today. Clements will lead off the 300-yard medley relay team and also swim in the 150-yard backstroke with Bob Page, another substitute. Hutton and Basescu are entered in both the 220 and 440-yard freestyle events, replacing Thomas and McCauley. Hutton has generally been used in the 220 event. No Emory Diver The Tar Heels will be assured of at least eight points, however, for Emory has no diver and thus will have to forfeit first and second place to Carolina There will, however, be an exhibition given by members of the local springboard corps. Otherwise Carolina will pre sent the same lineup that swept to five straight wins before bow- ins to Ohio btate two weeKs ago. Few of these problems will face freshman mentor Bob Ous- ley when the Tar Babies open up against Sewannee at 2 o'clock although the yearling lineup' is also in an indeterminate state and will probably be composed in cordance with the progress of the meet. The local freshmen will return to high school events today and will probably be favored to out- score the visitors from Tennessee Sewannee is expected to be especially strong in the breast-stroke and sprints, while much of the Carolina strength is con ccntrated in the 200-yard freestyle, the individual medley, and the 200-yard freestyle relay. It's a fact: None of the present members of the Tar Heel varsity cage squad will be lost by graduation this year. l. FRIED CHICKEN III THE BASKET 2.

Mural Boxing, Basketball Loops To Crown Champs Next Week The past week proved to be a profitable one for the Intramural department as Coach Wal ter Rabb and his hard-working assistants saw their involved stu dent athletic program clear up into a compact slate that will terminate both the boxing and basketball loops next week. With both of the present ac tivities running smoothly and creating a paramount of interest, the mural men are now looking forward to the success of the next mural sport, soccer. Entries for this activity will be accepted Monday and the regular play is slated to begin March 1. Yesterday's results in the cage rjlavoffs determined the other five in the finals for the Dormi tory playoffs while the one Fra ternity contest provided the fourth member of the quartet that are still vying for the Frat crown. The ever potent Grad quintet trounced Med School 2 in a semi final clash yesterday and thus ad vanced into the finals of the Dorm play. The Grads will meet the "darkhorse" of the league the Unknowns, for the laurels Monday. In yesterday's tilt, Bob Edwards and Kenny Black Com bined to notch 25 of the Gradu ate total to lead their mates into the all-important tussle Monday In the Frat competition, Sigma Chi 2 gained the right to meet Beta 1 in the semi-finals Monday whpn thev checked another strong aspirant to the crown DKE 2, by the score of 35-30 Behind by 17-9 at the half, the Sig Chis began to hit in the latter half to snare the victory. Fred Bauer's 10 points paced the win ners while Kay Lewis chipped in with nine. In the upper bracket of the Frat playoffs powerful Chi Psi 1 tangles with Chi Phi 3 in a vital semi-final match that will also be staged Monday afternoon.

Watson representing Emerson to take the crown in that weight while R. Schuman of Stacy won the 125 lb class champ ionshirj in a less strenuous fash ion as his opponent, J. Hicks of Mud Dobbers was compelled to forfeit. Ward Wins Again ST. AUGUSTINE. Fla.. Feb. 17 Harvie Ward. University of North Carolina golf star slammed his way to a one-up victory over Kermii Hutchinson. Charleston. W. Va., in the quarter-finals of ihe Golf Champions tourney held here this aflernoon. The victory was ihe third straight for the Tarboro par-busier who will iee off against Spencer Overton, former Maryland open champ in today's 38 -hole semi-final match. The tournament comes to a close on Saturday afternoon when ihe iwo semi-final victors meet in the tourney finals. ,1 Here Today Track Team Works Hard for Contest With Marylanders The first of the ten Carolina track entries in the University of Maryland Invitational games Saturday night are scheduled to leave Chapel Hill this afternoon for the scene of their weekend action. The remainder of the squad will go up by train on Sat urday morning. According to Coach Joe Hilton, who will accompany the team to Maryland, Carolina will com pete in eight of the events on the card. Coach Hilton said that he planned to do very little "doubling up" to insure the Carolina runners of being in top condition for next week's all-important Southern conference meet. Maryland's team won their meet in the university's armory at College -Park last year. Navy edged out the Tar Heels by a few points. The Tar Heels were not as well represennted last year as they will be Saturday. Carolina will probably be very strong in the hurdle and high jump events this weekend. Dick Taylor, Bob Morrow and Jack Moody have been entered in the 60-yard high hurdles while Taylor, Morrow and Bill Albans are entered in the 60-yard lows. Maryland's Mario Salvanelli and the Mohler twins from the uni versity of Virginia are other top knotch hurdlers. In the high jump Carolina will have the 1948 indoor and outdoor conference champions in Jack Moody and Billy Joyner respect ively.

Main Street Grapplers Making Final Appearance Of Home Schedule Fresh from Wednesday night's 19-13 win over The Citadel, Coach Chuck Quinlan's varsity grapplers will meet the big bad boys from Washington and Lee here tonight in an effort to "gain revenge for the severe thumping meted out by the Generals in Lexington last year. It will be the final appearance of the Tar Heels on the home mat. In five meets so far, the Tar Heels have lost to N. C. State, tied Virginia Tech, and defeated Davidson, V. M. I. and The Cit adel. However, the Tar Heels will be facing the defending Conference champions tonight and are the definite underdogs in the meet. Three of the. Carolina matmen still remain undefeated. Co-captain and 145-pounder Carrol Fisher has the most outstanding record of the three, having won five matches on as many falls. Phil Kemp, baby-faced 155-pounder has won all five of his, but only two on falls. Oscar Gup-ton, who earned his first pin of the year Wednesday night, has a record of three decisions and one fall. The Tar Heels, admittedly weak in the lighter weights, will be depending on the middle brackets for any possible upset victory. However, the Generals, as the only school in the Conference to offer wrestling scholarships, are strong in all weights and should win at least five of the eight weight divisions. Four of the eight starters for the Generals are defending Con fprpnre eharrmions. and a fifth was runner-up last year. Basketball Drills Resumed at Gym Following a one-day absence from practice in payment for their fine performance against Wake Forest this week, Caro- lina's basketball forces resumed their regular workouts yesterday at Woollen gymnasium. The Tar Heels displayed plenty of hustle and spirit in their drills, with thoughts of a revenge victory over N. C. State this week end being the motivating force behind the vigor. State invades Chapel Hill Saturday night for a crucial battle in Woollen gym at 8 o'clock. The Wolfpack defeated Coach Tom Scott's cagers by a 67-36 score in the first meeting between the two teams in Raleigh. How ever, since that time the locals have shown considerable im provement and are primed for an upset. With the invention of golf, the .cow was let out of. the pasture, and the bull was let in.

For the little Nash-Edgecombe city is the home of two of Carolina's most famous cage brothers Taylor and Charlie Thorne. Last year Taylor finished his fourth year as one of the Tar Heels greatest players, but this did not bring to a close the Thorne family's hardwood career. Charlie Thorne, younger I brother and "spittin' image" of the great "Tee" is now ringing up points for the hardwood agre-gation. Although he began the season as a reserve, when Rip Ryan injured his ankle, Charlie was moved up to the starting line-up. Given a chance to show off his famous set shots, he proved that he was worthy of a first string berth by scoring 13 points against Wake Forest. Charlie began his basketball playing at Rocky Mount high school. He was star guard and sparkplug of the team which was a member of the Class AA Eastern conference. Last year on the jayvee cage team he played a fast and agres- sive brand of ball, Like his brother he is an accurate passer, and, despite his size, he is a good backboard player. He is particularly adept at defense, and his set shots are a constant source of trouble to all opponents In addition to his set shots he has deadly overhead shots, but he has failed to put it to use more than a couple of times this season. It is hoped, however, that since it clicked against Wake Forest, he will try it more often. Although he is one of the scrap- piest members of the Tom Scott five, Charlie is one of the most underrated. He plays a snappy brand of ball and never slacks N ever before a pen so completely satisfying GET set for surprises! You'll find plenty of them in the New Parker "51".

This is his first year on the varsity, but already he is living up to the Thorne brand of basketball, and some observers even think that he may develop , into a better player than Tee. starring INGRID BERGMAN A VICtQ!
