The play was a 42-yard field goal by Tar Heel Max Chapman with 33 seconds remaining that shoehorned Carolina past Duke, 16-14, in their annual hootenanny, performed before 47,500 fans gath ered together in Duke Stadium on Thanksgiving Day. For the Tar Heels Chapman’s crossing the bar made a whale of a difference. It gave Carolina a season's record of 8-2, its best since 1948. It earned the Tar Happy Tar Heel Days Are Here Again . . .

By PETE IVEY E*ml Propped up in bed, with the light just right, I have been in ducing sleep by reading tech nical books—volumes in science, in sociology, economics, city planning,- psychology, philosophy, anthropology. It has produced, not only the desired soporific effect, but a by-product: a well - organized dream. I dreamt that a national foun dation awarded me SIOO,OOO to find out why a chicken crosses the road. The dream, in full detail, follows: Subject of Research Applica tion: “Inquiry Into the Intra- Thoroughfare Transmigration Mo tivations of a Poultry Population. The Methodology utilized in the approach to the problem consist ed of stratified samples of chick en conduct. This was comprised of habits, instincts, customs, and other empirical evidence of self instituted progression on foot by hens, roosters, pullets, cockerels, biddies and other fowl, from sub stantive and procedural concep tual dynamics both in specifics and as a continuum to give ap propriate examination to the phenomena of fowl inter-actions and behavior patterns. * * * The research team consisting of four psychologists, two phy sicists, two philosophers, one eco nomist, nine sociologists, a city planner, a consulting highway engineer, and a veterinarian, were assisted by a squadron of two dozen graduate students in kindred disciplines.

For the Belive-It-or-Not follow ers there is this to report: —The score was exactly the same as last year's game when Junior Got The Goal Post Pad, Coach Aycock The Ball By 808 QUINCY Junior Edge sat at the rear of the bus wearing full gear and a * sizeable smile. He had chosen the outside seat, next to the win , dow. Beside him was a white canvas cover. “Goal post pad,” said Edge, patting his newly acquired prop erty. “Fellow out f-.ere (pointing toward the field) tore it off and gave it to me. This is something I’m going to keep with pride.” The canvas had been a part of the goal which was cleared by Max Chapman's 41 - yard field goal, a kick which was as dis astrous to Duke as the one Mrs. O’Leary’s cow gave Chicago. It meant a 16-14 North Carolina victory. * * * The bus moved slowly from the edge of Duke Stadium to ward the exits. Swarms of fans waved and shouted. The players would either nod or wave back. They were tired and happy and exhausted and thankful on Thanksgiving Day. There was a slight delay as the driver of the long vehicle found the narrow gate almost impossible to squeeze through. “Hey, driver,” shouted some one. “Make Willard get out and run through the fence.’’ Ken Willard, the fullback, smil ed. He had experienced a great day against the Blue Devils, one in which he outlined the tal ented Jay Wilkinson. Duke half, for the Atlantic Coast Confer ence rushing title.

I’m just hoping It wIH bo all right.” The Chapel Hid Weekly 5 Cents a Copy Duke won, 16-14, on Billy Rey nolds’ field goal with 48 seconds to play. —lt was the third year in a row that a field goal had made the difference and that the game had been decided in the last min ute of play. Three years ago, Duke won, 6-3, in the last three seconds of play on a field goal by the aforementioned Mr. Rey nolds. —The last four Carclina-Duke games have been decided by a total of eight points. Now the bus was on the open highway, purring along in Times Square traffic; A white station wagon pulled alongside in the double lane. An exuberant driver, oblivious to safety, began blowing kisses with both hands to the Tar Heels. Gene Sigmon, the co-captain and tackle, balled his fist, raised his left arm upward and cheer ed, "Yippee!" Several others joined him. For seniors like Sigmon, it was the first victory over Duke. Suddenly Sigmon turned, his face a mask of disappointment. "Junior, Junior,” he shouted for Edge’s attention. “The game ball We forgot the game ball.” “Take it easy, Sig” soothed the quarterback. “I got it right here. First thing 1 did when the gun sounded. I made sure I’d get the ball.” Jim Hickey Had A Certain Light In His Eyes By J. A. C. DUNN Coach Jim Hickey wanted to stay and talk about it. As de lirious Carolina fans demolished goal posts in a frenzy of glee or simply bellowed en route to the Duke Stadium exits, Coach Hick ey stood by his team’s buses and remembered a few glorious mo ments. He had a certain light in his and the air of a man who sipped Nectar in the promis ed land. “We never thought we were go ing to lose,” he said. Even when Carolina had been one point be hind with one minute to go, he and the Tar Heels were still con fident. “This team has never quit. We - never gave that a thought. Sure, Serving the Chapel Hill Area Since 1923 CHAPEL HILL, NORTH CAROLINA, SUNDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1963 Chapman’s field goal didn’t really settle the issue entirely. In the little more than half-min ute that remained, there occur red a rhubarb about the dock and the official time. Here’s what happened. When Carolina lined up for Chapman’s field goal attempt there were 38 seconds showing on the clock and time was out. When Carolina lined up to kick off following Chapman’s boot the clock indicated 21 seconds left. A field goal play doesn’t take 17 seconds and the clock operator How about the Bccvl bid? some one asked. All set. The big Gator at Jacksonville was sign ed and sealed. "Yippee!” sounded off Sigmon,/ who knew all along the bid was cinched. Edge said he was as happy as a man could he. "I had confidence all along,” ’ he revealed in that slow, sure drawl. It was much like a to bacco farmer saying he knew the crop would be good, despite threatening weather. “I told them in the huddle,” revealed Edge, “—boys, we’ve got more than a minute and 20 seconds. We can do a lot of scoring in that time. I just knew we could do it.” So the Tar Heels marched and marched with the clock indicat ing a 14-13 deficit and time run (Continued on Page 2) we thought we'd win when we got behind.” They even thought so before the game started. Coach Hickey said, and that thought had prompted them to accept a Gator Bowl bid before they even left Kenan Field House. ‘We wanted it and we knew we had to win it." Max Chapman did it with a 41- yard field goal that had Coach Hickey shaking his head, almost in disbelief, even after the game was over. “Max Chapman . . ." He repeated the namr a couple of times, slowly wagging his his head. “Didn't he do a great job on that kick.” It was a moun tainous understatement, and he knew it. but more powerful words were not within reach at that moment. was already suspec*, having let the clock run on with time out on two previous occasions in the game. Duke Coach Bill Murray, the last of the graceful losers, rushed on to the field to protest. The clock runneth over, he contended. It should have more time on its hands. The officials by now had let the whole thing get a little out of hand. High level conferences were held on one side of the field and then the other. Finally, when it appeared the game Christmas Parade Opens Shopping Season Tuesday Nursery «/ Rhymes Is Theme The Merchants Association's Christmas Parade will open the Christmas shopping season in Chapel Hill and Carrboro Tues day afternoon. The parade will start at 5:30 at the corner of Greensboro and Main Streets in Carrboro, and wi’) proceed down Main Street and Franklin Street in Chapel Hill, ending at the Morehead Planetarium. The parade will be without some units which had originally planned to participate. A Defense Department communique last wees ordered all armed forces units not to participate in any public displays or parades “not in the immediate interests of the defense of the nation" during the official 30-day period of mourn ing for the late President John F. Kennedy. As a result, University Air Force and Naval ROTC units will not take part in the parade as they have in the past. The two ROTC units would have contribut ed their color guard, drill team, and drum and bugle corps. But three other bands and various floats and other units will take part. The theme of the parade will be Christmas in nursery rhymes. The nursery rhyme atmosphere will be created by Frank Cain’s Attractions, a group of about 40 giant caricature heads of nursery rhyme characters, with costumes to match, which will be brought to Chapei Hill by Mr. Cain and filled by members of the Chapel Hill Y-Teens. Mr. Cain’s charac ter-heads and costumes have been used in many nationally famous parades such as the Mummers Parade in Philadelphia, Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and Macy’s Christmas Parade in New York. Other units to take part in the parade include the Lincoln High School Band, bands from South ern and Northern High Schools in Durham, Anita Wilkinson’s Strutters from Durham, the Dunn (Continued on Page 2) "And of course, that's what we were trying to do on that en tire drive. We weren’t going for the long run. just down and out on the pass and the short run out of bounds. We wanted to get in position for the field goal, and that’s where we got." Position for a field goal, he said, was achieved with what he calls his two-minute offense, which con sists of “sideline passes and tilings like that to stop the clock.” All teams have it, ’but we’ve practiced hard on it . . . quite n bit since the Clemson game, when I didn't think we did a good job near the end.” The Tar Heels were not exact ly playing a walk-on part; the game had its difficulties: “. . . might have to be called on ac count of darkness, the officials gave Preacher Bill back 12 sec onds. That seemed equitable since a field goal play takes about five seconds. Add the 21 seconds on tile clock to the 12 seconds put back and the five seconds for the play and the books balance up at 38 seconds.

Duke used their 33 seconds to run the Tar Heels’ blood pres Tar Heels In Gator Bowl; Opponent Is Still Undecided The No. 1 question has been settled. Carolina will play in the Gator Bowl jn Jacksonville, Fla., on Dec. 28. However, the Tar Heels don’t know yet who they will play.

The Tar Heels carried Coach Jim Hickey off to have firsts on Thanksgiving dinner while Bill Murray stood still counting his seconds.

Coach Hickey had said he was sure his team would win. but as he left one of the greenest fields his team had ever grazed on you had a feeling that inside he was experiencing a tremendous, shat tering landslide of relaxation, that his nerves were festooned in the kind of delicious looseness that follows winning a fantastic gamble, that he had reached a new plateau, a new higfi.

Early in the second quarter, the rhythm of the game picked up. From the Tar Heel 38, Junior Edge passed in the flat to Ken Willard. The big halfback made a nice catch of the ball and then went off to the races. He swung around his left end, handsomely escorted. At mid field, Willard cut back across and made use of a Kesler block (Continued on Page 6) its season against Georgia yes terday. And oo Dee 7 they will be watching Penn State vs, Col orado.
