The Hurricanes wound up with a grand total of 74 points, followed in order by Berry, 46-1/2; Model, 32, and Cass, 8-1/2.
The other two marks were tumbled in the meet, both by Falcons, Byron Smith set a new Berry record in the broad jump with a leap of 19 feet, 2-1/2 inches. And, Berry Gregg, who set a new falcon mark in the 880 run last week despite finishing in the No. 2 spot, bettered his “old” record yesterday while winding up in third place.

College chorus outstanding in chapel recital
The Shorter College Chorus last evening sang the immortal “Requiem,” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, before a capacity audience in Brookes Chapel on the college campus. The 61 voices making up the chorus displayed a wealth of musical adeptness and understanding as they interpreted this technically demanding, mature composition of the 18th century.
An analyst may find pleasure in praising the unsurpassable workmanship, or he may marvel at the simplicity of plan and expression in Mozart’s works, but one is still far from explaining the peculiar and ineffable tenderness and depth that can penetrate a man’s soul and comfort and inspire as Mozart’s music does.
The Requiem breathes of Christian faith in all its purity, and the Shorter College Chorus brought to its listeners a brief respite from worldly tangibles to some fearfully and in humble repentance to speak with God as Mozart’s music was unfolded.
The chorus sang brilliantly with precision and control. The blending of the voices was a masterful and genuine thrill. Highly satisfying, too, was the dynamic alertness of the group, the clarity of the florid passages, and the exactness of the enunciation of the Latin text.
The gifted conductor, a musician of rare sensitivity, John Ramsaur, of the Shorter College faculty, directed the chorus in this brilliant performance. Having brought alive rhythmically the sections of profound agitation, he equally recreated the sensitive, poignant choruses with tenderness and restraint. The chorus was well prepared and sang with confidence under Mr. Ramsaur’s direction.
The soloists, Joyce Abbott, Rachel Barrett, Royce McNeal and Horace English, were outstanding and commendable for their performances. Accurate and posed, they sang easily and smoothly the beautiful, flowing phrases.
David Beaty, head of the Department of Music, was the organist. The Holtkamp organ provided the means for a masterful accompaniment by Mr. Beaty. An artist of the highest caliber, he played the difficult work with tonal contrasts, proficiency and with desirable balance of voices and instrument.
The performance of the Requiem was presented by students and faculty, department of music, Shorter College in memoriam and in thankful commemoration of the long life of Mrs. Edith Lester Harbin, long prominent in fostering musical activities, religious and cultural interests in the city of Rome, a loyal graduate and devoted friend of Shorter College.

It’s Victoria vs. Judy
HOLLYWOOD (AP) – It’s Queen Victoria against Judy Garland — and Dr. Ben Casey shouldering his way through the crowded competition close behind them — as Emmy time comes again to television.
The nominations are in, and secret ballots to be cast by 6,000 members of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences will decide who will win the coveted awards at a May 22 telecast.
The 137 nominations – for 26 categories – were announced Tuesday.
Leading contenders for the 1961-62 Program of the Year honors are Judy Garland and the “Victoria Regina” biography of Queen Victoria, which starred Julie Harris. Miss Garland won a bid for her Feb. 25 special.
Ben Casey, ABC’s young surgeon, won eight nominations, including a nod for the young star, Vincent Edwards.
Many of the famous old names of television – Jack Benny, Robert Young, Bob Hope and Dinah Shore – didn’t get a tumble. A lot of eager youngsters skyrocketed into the top competition.
There was an emphasis on the documentary, news and public affairs program. Of the five Program of the Year nominees, three were in this area: “Biography of a Bookie Joint,” “Vincent Van Gogh” and “Walk in My Shoes,” a study of racial integration.
The ABC-TV network emerged as a top contender. Last year the network gathered in four nominations. This year it won 35. NBC-TV got 54 and CBS-TV got 45.
In the dramatic field, “Victoria Regina” promised to make a sweep similar to that of last season’s “Macbeth.” The Harris vehicle scored in seven categories.
In addition to the program honor, Miss Garland also was in the running for the best musical performance – along with Perry Como, Yves Montand, Carol Burnett and Edie Adams. The Garland show was also up for best variety program, with the shows of Perry Como, Walt Disney, Edie Adams and Garry Moore. Miss Harris is up for best single performance against Geraldine Brooks for “Call Back Yesterday” (“Bus Stop”); Susan Pleshette for “Shining Image” (“Dr. Kildare”); Inger Stevens, “The Price of Tomatoes” (Dick Powell Show); Ethel Waters, “Goodnight, Sweet Blues” (“Route 66”).
James Donald as Victoria’s consort is in the race for best single performance against Milton Berle “Doyle Against the House” (Dick Powell Show); Peter Falk, “The Price of Tomatoes” (Dick Powell Show); Lee Marvin, “People Need People” (Alcos Premiere); Mickey Rooney, “Somebody’s Waiting” (Dick Powell Show).
