CHARLOTTE Carolina's starters got
a little help from five friends on the
bench before dazzling Georgia Tech with
a fast-paced second half attack that left
Yellow Jackets 87-58 losers here Friday
The Tar Heels, who looked more like
spectators than the nation's
eleventh-ranked team in the first 10
minutes of the game, were a drastically
different group after Coach Dean Smith
turned to the second unit with the
starters behind 19-12.
Steady play by the backup quintet of
Dave Chadwick, Craig Corson, Donn
Johnston, Kim Huband and Dale Gipple
reduced the Tech lead to three before
they yielded to the first team with five
minutes left in the first half.
Center Lee Dedmon then came up
with a couple of assists, a field goal and
two free throws and staked the Tar Heels
to a 36-35 lead at intermission.
Carolina had no trouble whatsoever
The Tar Heels employed a retooled
fast break to fashion a 29-9 spurt in the
first 10 minutes of the second period.
The Tar Heels were up 65-46 at that
point and coasted the rest of the way to
win number 1 5 against three losses.
Dennis Wuycik, who made only four
points in the first half, got in the middle
of enough breaks to finish with 16 and
lead UNC's balanced attack.

Dedmon worked tirelessly to keep him
from getting the ball.
The 6-9 Yellow Jacket center threw in
10 points to key Tech's early lead, but he
got only another two the rest of the half.
He didn't score again until the Tar Heels
had wrapped it up, either.
Yunkus, whose previous low was 13
against UNC at Charlotte, was also
outrebounded by his less heralded
opponent. He claimed but six misses

Special to the DTH
(Editor's note: Jim Reed is a member, of Chi Psi
fraternity. He has done extensive research on the
question of whether or not fraternities are valid. This
article is the first in a series. )
One of the greatest dilemmas fraternities face is that
of the image that they project or in many cases that
which is projected for them- to the student body.
Often the familiar picture of the "frat" man is
painted in the following way: he wears a monogrammed
alpaca sweater (Carolina Blue, of course) and has a pint
of Southern Comfort in one hand a delicious Carolina
co-ed in the other. He is basically hedonistic and an
intellectual pigmy. He loves the Tarns and screams a
lusty "Hot Damn" for every first down Carolina makes.
He is a Business Administration major and has a solid
chance of taking over his dad's company within five
years. He has been sterilized by middle-class society and
thus rendered harmless.
Not only is this stereotype grossly exaggerated, but
also in cases where this exterior does exist, this is not
necessarily an accurate reflection of the individual's
personality. All too often brothers are relegated to this
woeful and mundane stereotype.

Another topic of concern is the question of the
fraternity man's supposed vein of anti-intellectualism. Is
he versed in Hegelian dialectical materialism or
memorable quotations of A. Mitchell Palmer?
The only effective means of comparing the level of
intellectualism between individuals within a a fraternity
to those not in one is to examine some QJPA. data.
Although this basis is perhaps not a very sound measure
of one's intellectual efforts, it is still the only viable
means to examine such an abstract concept.
The median Q.P.A. for all fraternities for the school
year 1969-1970 was 2.497-a median slightly higher
than that of undergraduate men not in fraternities.
Certain fraternities merit special mention for
outstanding scholarship. Zeta Beta Tau had an
astounding 3.042 average for last spring. Chi Psi and
Delta Upsilon had exceptional averages of 2.879 and
2.814, respectively. -
A third myth that should be treated is that of the
fraternity system's "elitist" strain. Presently, the
fraternities have a membership of 1,413, or
approximately 18 per cent of the male undergraduate
enrollment. If current trends continue, this percentage
should increase to slightly over 20 per cent after spring
rush. Fraternities are highly selective, to be sure, but
they are not "elitist."
There may be some instances where status and social

The Student-Faculty Stores
Committee will meet early next week to
review the new policy of issuing warrants
for bad checks.
The special session of the committee
will review the policy which was
instituted this semester by Student Stores
Manager Tom Shetley and Associate Dean
of Student Affairs James O. Cansler.
The policy, which was not approved
by the committee, led to the arrest of ten
students for bad checks this week.
According to Shetley the new policy
provides for the first notice of a bad
check to go to Dean Cansler's office
instead of through the mail.
Cansler, Shetley said, would then tell
the student's resident advisor of the bad
check, and the RA would inform the
student, advising him to cover the check.
Second notices of bad checks would
.be sent by registered mail, Shetley said.
Shetley himself took the blame for not
taking the new policy before the
committee before initiating it.

LaTour added that two of the students

Shetley said he felt the students might
not have gotten notices because of a
difference between their campus address
and the address on their checks.
LaTour said, "I believe there are
serious needs for a full, public discussion
of the matter."
He added that the students he had
talked to had not been aware their checks
were not good.

position influences selection, yet this is not the accepted
Unfortunately, financial restrictions make joining a
fraternity prohibitive to the lower income groups. This
is, perhaps, brought on by the fabric of American
society more than any other reason.
" A final area of controversy is the "hazing" process.
This process still exists at a few fraternities here. Patrick
Johnson, in his book entitled Fraternity Row, comments
tersely, "I think hazing, in the old physical sense, is
completely asinine. It proves little or nothing, and the
pledges who submit themselves, to indiscriminate hazing
have no one to blame but themselves."
To refer to hazing as anything but "asinine" would be
a ludicrous euphemism. Often one is confronted with
the rationale that the pledge must undergo some test of
endurance to prove his commitment to the fraternity.
If the hazing method is viewed as the only effective
method of retaining the pledge's interest in the
fraternity, then quite likely the fraternity has nothing
worthwhile to offer the pledge. Viewing the situation
from another angle, the pledge whose interest in the
fraternity is kindled only by hazing or performing
menial errands for the brothers doesn't have much as an
individual to offer the fraternity, either.
pledge training worthwhile and how
