What you may not realize, as Tar Heels and Gamecocks meet in the most attractive and important Atlantic Coast Conference contest of the regular season, is that it's UNCs turn to win. USC won the battle of the Carolinas in the feature basketball match of last season, then its football team whipped the Tar Heels in what at the time was the top game of the 1970 grid year. On this basis alone, the odds would wit Vol. 78, No. 99 n n by Lou Bonds Staff Writer . Governor Bob Scott charged UNC officials Friday with attempted sabotage of a proposal for a two-year medical school at East Carolina University (ECU). Scott appeared before the State Board of Higher Education, which rejected the two-year program in favor of a one-year ECU medical school. "I think it is apparent to all of us the University of North Carolina is doing all it possibly can to block the approval of medical education at East Carolina University," Scott said. 'Their activity in the last six months has been frantic and frankly sometimes a little bit comic. m..i4melh.IIiiiieKitiwM trying to expand its own medical school only , after learning of ECU's plans to establish one at Greenville. "they (UNC officials) see this as a threat to the supreme sovereignty of the University of North Carolina," Scott told the Board.

Washington Witness II was organized by students and faculty members to discuss specific legislation with Congressional leaders to end the war in Indochina. McGovern and Javits will talk with the group Tuesday morning. Humphrey will meet with 20 members of the group from 3 to 4 p.m. Tuesday. Other confirmed appointments with Congressional leaders include meetings with Rep. Bella Abzug (D.-N.Y.), Rep. Ella Grasso (D.-Conn.), Rep. Robert Drinan (D.-Mass.), and Sen. Henry Jackson (D.-Wash.). AWS symposium sett tor March The Association of Women Students (AWS) will sponsor a symposium on educational reform Tuesday and Wednesday, March 2-3 in the Carolina Union. The symposium is to be an educational workshop studying educational reform. Small seminar groups will discuss new teaching , methods and curriculum innovations and the groups will use "labs" to madel classroom situations. Dianne Gooch, a member of the AWS, sees the symposium as "an impetus to curriculum reform on the UNC campus." Gooch said Wednesday. "Many are disturbed about the quality of education here . . . some teachers have been successful with experimental classroom techniques. Others would like to use less seem to favor the Tar Heels in their 2 p.m. regionally televised confrontation with Frank McGuire's talented ruffians. There's another little thing to consider, however. Both of those South Carolina triumphs came away from home, in Carraichael Auditorium and in Kenan Stadium. So, by a perverse bit of circumstantial logic, the 13,000-plus Gamecock fans in Carolina Coliseum figure to be in for the same rude treatment afforded UNC fans in the two previous showdowns in Chapel Hill. Dean Smith's Tar Heels bring a 17-3 overall record into the game, compared to USCs 15-4. In the ACC, Carolina is 9-1, the Gamecocks 6-4. 1 ? 78 Years Of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, to ancestry doesn't date back to the pilgrim fathers or whose original land did not come from an original land grant from the King of England." The Board, in refusing the two-year ECU program, endorsed a one-year medical school plan that would have students transfer to UNC for their second and third years of studies. The fourth year would be completed by an internship with an N.C. hospital. Consolidated University President William C. Friday said Friday he could not comment on Governor Scott's accusations. Friday had said Tuesday he supported a ; plan whereby a one year medical school would be established at aiaic Jmversiiy instead oi me iwo xt -i ci.i. it:..i zx i r. ,i . year program at ECU. Scott referred to a letter from Friday to ECU President Leo Jenkins, which he claimed said UNC would not accept students from other campuses into the UNC medical school. Scott indicated the letter told of UNC plants to give Consolidated University students top priority at the Chapel Hill med school. The context of Friday's letter appeared Tuesday in The Charlotte The group also hopes to meet with Sen. Edward Kennedy (D.-Mass.). Edward Anderson, a representative of Common Cause, a citizen's lobby group headed by John Gardner, former secretary of HEW, will also talk with the group Tuesday morning. Several other representatives are tentatively scheduled to speak with the group. More than 110 people will be included in Washington Witness II, with one busload each from Raleigh and Charlotte. Members come from all over the state, as far east as Fayetteville and as far, west as Asheville. "As a result of advertising and community canvassing, almost $ 1 ,000 have been donated to Washington Witness II," said Adams. "At least 225 signatures of support have been gathered." About 100 people attended a meeting Thursday night to discuss final plans for Washington Witness II. Student Body President Tom Bello and Professor Henry A. Landsberger presided over the meeting held in Murphey Hall. Religion Professor John Dixon and Chapel Hill Mayor Howard Lee spoke briefly at the meeting. Mayor Lee stressed the importance of traditional methods in their classes but don't know how." During the symposium, Gooch says such teachers will "have the opportunity to see various experimental teaching techniques in a laboratory situation. Speaking at the symposium will be two men from the National Training Laboratory, an institution in Washington. D.C. which studies educational methods. One of these is Dr. Walter Sikes. former Dean of Students at Antioch College. The AWS is yet unsure who the other speaker will be. Those faculty members and students interested in participating in the program are asked to contact Dianne Gooch at 933-4913 or at Post Office Box 30. Carolina Union. n 11 vl J The Tar Heels therefore have a chance to clinch the regular season title with a win. Second place South Carolina would then have five losses with but three league contests remaining. Carolina's wrapping up of the championship is also contingent on Duke's beating Virginia, which has the same ACC mark as the Gamecocks. They vie tonight in Durham. It's even money as to which Carolina will derive the stronger incentive from the facts of the season standings. USC may have a distinct advantage in the matter of wounded pride, however. The Cocks were second ranked nationally when they arrived, undefeated, in Chapel Hill in early January. mm Editorial Freedom Saturday, February 20, 1971 o n Observer without revealing where it obtained the copy. The Raleigh News and Observer reported Friday the letter had been obtained from N.C. Attorney General Robert Morgan, who is also chairman of the ECU Board of Trustees. Morgan said Friday he had not "leaked" the letter's contents as charged by the News and Observer but had given it to them. "With regard to the statement I leaked the letter to them, I did not. I gave it to them just as I would any other area reporter who asked for it," Morgan said. Asked about Scott's charges against University officials, Morgan said, "As a matter of public record, the University of North - Carolina has ' expressed feelings against the proposal as early as 1 965 when the General Assembly first talked about approving an ECU medical school." The ECU proposal to the Board of Higher Education suggested the committee approve a two year medical school at Greenville with students completing their third and fourth years at the UNC medical school in Chapel Hill. Friday told The Daily Tar Heel Tuesday citizen participation and the need to contact all of North Carolina's representatives. Virginia Carson, one of the coordinators of the trip,, said noon Monday would be the absolute deadline to sign up for the bus. The cost of the round-trip bus transportation is $12. The group will leave from the Morehead Planetarium parking lot at 4:30 a.m. Tuesday and will return to Chapel Hill Tuesday evening. Students may drive to Washington themselves and meet the group there. Booths have been set up at the YM-YWCA and the Carolina Union for bus tickets and information concerning the trip. , .p. 1 V Si As the February temperature moved Fridav, classes moved outside to take UNO - . ;:: -.: 'v , v i '.rr- " - V ' . - '" ,'" i v : " .

Then your attention is directed to the latest wire service polls, wherein the Cocks are perched seventh and ninth, a notch above Carolina in the AP and UPI rankings. Still no clear-cut favorite? Let's see, which team has been the most impressive recently? UNC has won three straight games on the road by margins of 29, 39 and 26 points.

Scott supported the education board's endorsement of the one year medical school and said he supported extending the program later to a four year school. Scott expressed concern for the future of "North Carolina 1 hospitals and the supply of doctors turned out of state colleges. The state currently subsidizes three medical schools at UNC, Duke University and Bowman Gray School of Medicine in Winston-Salem. Speaking- of the future need for doctors in the state, Scott said, "I don't think -we ought to wait until that crisis is upon us to begin planning for it. "There are those who say we don't need a medical school and say let's wait until 1975 or 1980," he said. "Now are we going to sit around and wait until the construction prices go up?" Scott indicated the progress of obtaining medical schools sufficient enough to supply North Carolina needs would be slow, but "if we have to walk before we run, then let's walk." He added UNCs plan to expand its medical program could not be completed before 1 980 at the earliest. Scott said "We need to expand the classes at the UNC Medical School to their capacity to train all the doctors they can." But he said when UNC reaches its capacity, "Are we to believe no more people will be born or no more will become ill? Are we not going to still need more doctors after that to supply the health services for a growing population?" Dr. Jenkins, when contacted by UPI wire services, said he was "surprised and disappointed to learn the Board of Higher Education has recommended we establish a one-year program for which no plans have been made." He said ECU has been working under a legislative mandate toward a two-year school.

Our turnovers really went down, too. But we can't get complacent. "South Carolina could blow us out. They are that good." In their most recent outings, the Gamecocks topped Davidson by four and N.C.

(Staff photo by Cliff Kolovson) Ohaiini letter Official displease Because of a 476 per cent increase in unlawful chain letter activity, U.S. Postmaster Winton Blount has ordered a nation-wide crackdown on those who perpetuate the scheme through the mail. Under current postal lottery and fraud laws, chain letters are regarded as non-mailable. They are illegal because of the likelihood of the chain being broken and yielding no profit to the mailer regardless of his participation. Chief Postal Inspector William J. Cotter recently revealed the amount of such schemes had jumped from 97 in August, 1969, to 559 by the end of January, 1970. enjoying the he3t wave. (Staff photo by Other USC starters are 6-11 center Tom Riier, 6-11 forward Tom Owens, 6-2 r--'J Bob Carver and either of two 6S forwards. Rick Ayd'ett or John Ribock. Carolina will go with forwards Dermis Wuydk, teadir scorer on the team, and Bill Chamberiain, second in scoring and rebounding. Wuycik is averaging 19.5 ppg, Chamberlain 12.9. Center Lee Dedmon is scoring it a 12.1 clip, guards George Karl and Steve Previs at 1 2.7 and 8.2 respectively. It wiU come down, probably, to a test of UNCs cohesive, aggressive style of team play against South Carolina's carefully regulated offensive tempo. But you know that, too. X L : 4 9 -4 f e Cotter said the chain letter activity usually involved cash but also used items such as U.S. Savings Bonds and Postal Money Orders. According to Cotter, those who receive profits from chain letters are those who got into the chain from the start. Latter entries seldom, if ever, recoup their investments. As an example, endless chains, as they are called, are rarely endless. A chain letter requiring each participant to mail out six letters would progress so rapidly that it would theoretically reach every inhabitant on the earth who is literate if it were followed to the 1 1th power. Occasionally the promoter sets himself up to reap all the profit. In a recent case. Cotter used as an example a chain which was uncovered using the bereaved families of soldiers killed in Vietnam. Cotter related, "In this scheme, the promoter posed as a grieving father himself and attempted to lure 100 families into a chain letter swindle where all the proceeds were to be sent back to him under five aliases at different addresses." An additional 1,000 families were slated to be targets when the promoter was arrested and subsequently sentenced to three years in prison. The letters he actually mailed could have netted him more than 530,000 if he had been allowed to continue but the prompt action by postal inspectors prevented any public loss." On the other hand, articles such as postcards, recipes and things of that sort are considered to be mailable because they do not involve a thing of value under the present law. However, postal cards in "good luck" chain prayers containing a threat to those who break the chain are illegal under a Liw that prohibits the placement of threatening matter on the outside of mail. Cotter urged the public to be alert for these schemes and to turn over all such matter to the local postmasters. get
