U.!t.C. Library Serials Dept. Box 870 .Chipsi' Bill, n.c. ales OOK By ANTHONY WOLFF and DOUG EISELE What .i)c.us to Ik- a violation of state sales tax laws . was revealed heie vesterday in confirmation that Univer silv owned IiooU I m hane is (lutein;; a ; per cent sales f.ix on I loly liihles. II. K. Riuliie. who heads the campus hook stoves, was tinahle to (oinnient on the law hut promised to "look into it" with tin- t'nivcrsity attorney. "II Midi a law exists we certainly won't charge the 3 per ccm tax for the lil)lcs." he said. "We wouldn't want the students to suller. We want to he lair ahout 4t." levelation of the tax charge grew out of an investiga tion hy The Daily Tar Heel upon notice of a law which exempts, among .other things, fertilizer, collins and liihles from the 3 per cejit sales tax authorized hy the State of North Carolina. The exemptions are listed in "The Sales and Tse lax Report." an official state document, under "Printed Ma terials Group" included in the section under "Kxemp . tions and lx lusions." "Holy Bibles" is No. 42 under that section. After readin' the law, a Tar Heel staff memher was sent to the liook Exchange to purchase a Bible. He paid die list price, S6, for the book, plus an i8-cent-charge described hy the clerk7 as "tax." Ritchie, contacted later, was apparently surprised to Uarn of the law, although he noted that other items sold through the campus stores do not always carry a charge for -tax. "If we've violated a principle in this matter, we'll he sure the students get their 18 cents back," he said. Ouestioned as to whether the University could retrieve sales taxes paid thus far for Bibles, Ritchie said the Uni versity has never before received such a rebate. Biit'he said records would .show how much sales tax has been col lected from the sale of Bibles. V : He made clear that no definite action could be taken until the University attorney firmly establishes that,' im der circumstances here, the tax should not be charged. Bibles are required in various religion courses at the University. The text purchased Thursday is Nelson's "The Holy Bible," 1053 edition.

Earlier in the evening, the Legis lature approved an amendment providing for two permanent jurors to sit at honor code trials. The vote was 24-15. Charlie Wilson, a member of the Honor Council and a UP Legislator, introduced this amendment. The original bill as amended and pre sented by the ways and means com mittee deleted the, clause calling for permanent jurors.

It was Cuuuinchaiu that hit a jump shot from the center circle to send Carolina ahead 58-57, with 3 seconds left and it was Cunning bam who tied up Wake's Olin Broadway as he was shooting, then outjumped Broadway and tapped to Tommy Kearns who dribbled in for a snow bird with five seconds re maining to sew up one of the most unpredictable contests of the season for Carolina. Cunningham abu bit ; vital baskets against Virginia Tues- day night. j Wake's record doesn't show it but this was the Deacon team of old which scrapped the National Champs right down to the very last and the estimated 8,000 fans here were in a frenzy down until Cunningham's timely feats with the seconds rushing by on the scoreboard. v- The win was number 15 of the season for Carolina and its eighth ACC win against four tosses. It put the Tar Heels in a challenging posi tion once again for the regular season conference title. Both teams used a zone defense until the last couple of minutes when WTake came out in a man to man. And this tight defense kept the noisy Deac fans on their feet I throughout. Wake Forest came back after intermission holding a 29-27 lead. From the very start it was evident that this was not going to be one of those "Leave early" affairs. The Deacs ran their lead to 33 27 before Pete Brennan hit a fol low shot with 2:47 gone in the second half. A basket by Cunning ham, Brennan's free throw and two at the line by Harvey Salz put ! Carolina back in the lead, 36-35 with 15:46 left. j The Tar Heels were able to j maintain a slender margin until Wake's Henry Bowers hit a free throw at 11:36 to tie it at 42. Caro lina went ahead again on Cunning ham's fayup and from there the Tat Heels ran it to 52-46 before a couple of free throws to make it 56-55 Carolina but Bowers hi: the Deacs came back. Brennan fouled out at 6:02 and Wake's Wendell Carr went out a! 5:51. After that the Deacons chip ped away at the Carolina lead and finally reg,;ned it when Charlie Forte stole the ball from Cunning ham and hit a layup with 2:32 to play to make it 55-54. Carolina's Lee Shaffer then got a shot from the corner to push the Deacs ahead. 57-56. This set the strfe' for Cunningham's dra matic finale. Brennan's 15 points was tops for Carolina. Kearns had 14 and Salz had 12, with Cunningham bit ting for eight. Budd and Bowers lad 15 each for Wake Forest. - Carolina had sl 36.2 percentage (See TAR HEELS, page 4)
