Davidson may give Duke and Carolina's favorites the scare of their lives in the annual State track championships here Sat urday afternoon, starting at 1:45 o'clock. The Blue Devils beat the Wildcats, but otherwise Davidson has been cut ting a wide path through the ranks of its foes. The Presbyterians beat V. M. I. and V. P. 1.. two of the strongest teams in Virginia except for the University, and last Saturday they gave South Carolina its first defeat of the season. Further, their stars hit some peaks in that meet, with Fleagle running Carolina And Duke Stars To Try For New Records Cavaliers Have Strong Team and Are Out to Break Dom inancy of Tar Heels m Baseball Clashes Tomor- _ row at Hill and on S aturday in Greensboro Chapel Hill, May s.—The Carolina nine will present more than its usual quota of stars, but the Tar Heels will have to break the hard-luck jinx that has been trailing them, if they are to hope for success when they meet Vir ginia here Friday at 4 o'clock and at Greensboro Saturday at 3 o’clock, in the closing feature games of an other series in the classic 42-year rivalry. Paul Dunlap, .411 hitting first base man. has already been signed for the Washington outfield, and Smoky Ferebee, shortstop, is surpassing even Dunlap’s hittin with a mark of .449 George Hinton and Captain Cecil Longest have been pitching stelier ball every game, but still the hard luck Tar Heels lost to Wake Forest 4-3 and the State 7-4. Virginia took this year's series opener at Charlottesville, 5-1, and the big fight will come here Friday and in the Greensboro classic Saturday. Both universities have strong and ve teran teams and Carolina is as intent on breaking its hard luck spell and maintaining its dominancy over Vir ginia as Virglna s set on breakng the victory march the Tar Heels have fol lowed in recent years. What’s more the two teams will be fighting for the lead. The rivalry has been close as well as intense. Caro lina leads slightly in series won, but Virginia has a narrow margin in total victories. Coach Hearn 4 ls saving his beat pit chers -Longest; Hinton and Edwards —for these two games, and the Tar Heels will shoot the works to win the series. The squad has been working its hardest of the year during these last few days, and everybody's in good shape and high spirits. Whether they can pull their eoraback and take the series away from the strong Virginia team remains to be seen, but the two games that will tell the tall promise two real battles anyway. Carolina’s crack 45-piece band will lend a big invasion of students, by bus and by auto, to the Greensboro classic Saturday, and the big crowd will be joined by a small army 01 pretty supporters from N. C. C. W. and Greensboro College, whose stu dent bodies turn out en masse for the big game each year. The lineups will show Virginia with offered as prizes to the firs* 30 stu dents to ftnisfh.

SBBBSDS4 - new Gaso//ne^% Carolina Faces Hard Luck With Tough Virginia Foe Chapel Hill, May s.—Carolina and Duke track stars, who together bet tered four state records in their dual meeting, are being picked to set the pace and make a great meet of Sat urday afternoon's State Champion ships here. Davidson will also send a strong team, and N. C. State, Wake Forest and Guilford will each add its own quota of stars, but the Tar Heels and the Blue Devils will wear the fa vorites’ colors. The Freshman di vision will bring a number of other star performers to the big meet, •which will get under way at 1:45 o'clock and which will last until 5 o’clock. Duke mowed down all opposition in dual meets until it met Carolina. The Tar Heels, who had already beaten ! Navy and Virginia in a single week- ! end. nosed them out, but the Blue Devils put up as many feature per formances as the Tar Heels. The performances of that meet, standing alone, indicate that this year's crop of stars will set up several new rec ords Saturday. Charlie Farmer, Ralston LeGore and Oscar Mullis of Carolina huve previously bettered the existing state records in the 220-yard dash, Javelin throw and shot put, respectively. Henry Fulmer of Duke has done the same in the 440-yard dash, and Cap tain Lionel Weil and Ken Marland of Carolina have been hovering around the record all year. John Brownlee, of UuKe, who set the Southern Conference record for the low' hurdles at 24 seconds flat last year, may easily lift the present state record of 24.4 seconds, although his best time in the Carolina m**, was 24.5. * Rip Slusser, his aich-rival at Caro, lina, might do likewise. f m g>Ua skimmed the lows in 24.4 second meed last year, and is hitting his strafe again fast. The 9.6 seconds records in the 109. yard dash will be hard to lift, bu , Brownlee has turned in 0 6 an <l second performances this year and Farmer has done 9 9 and ran one 8 te D behind Waybright of Navy in a dash. They should have another gi** t race. Today^Games BRIGHT BELT LEAGUE Oxford ax Henderson. Rocky Mt. at Roanoke Rappife PIEDMONT LEAGUE High. Point at Winston-Salem. AsheviHe at Greensboro.
