The Tar Heels led by only one at the

UNC Coach Dean Smith said he had
not seen his team miss so many easy
inside shots this season.
"The heat seemed to bother both
teams," he said, "and neither team came
close to its potential. Dedmon was of
course instrumental in the win."

93.5 points per contest, had trouble with

Gov. Bob Scott told the Consolidated
University Board of Trustees Monday
state universities should stop
"in-fighting" among themselves and
promote a "coordinated harmonious
higher education program."
There are those who say competition
among institutions is healthy," Scott said.
"This is true in athletics, but not in
program offerings and budget requests.
"Unlike business competition,
competition in higher education can lead,
and has led in our state, to a serious waste
of our state's resources," he added.
It was the second time within a week
Scott blasted rivalries between North
Carolina universities for state funds.
Scott lashed out at Consolidated
University officials Friday for trying to
block East Carolina University's efforts to
gain legislative-1 support for-a proposed
medical school program. .
Scott indicated his personal 'desire to
see the committee of trusteeswappointed
last December to study the governing
structure of the higher education system
resolve the competition dilemma.
"The committee is now at work
diligently seeking an answer to this
growing problem," the Governor said. "I
have asked the committee to develop
recommendations I can present to this
session of the General Assembly."
According to Scott, the reason for the
committee is "simply that a halt must be
called to the in-fighting, the maneuvering,
the overlapping, the duplication all too
prevalent in higher education in our state

'Furthermore, some writers still
bemoan the fact the General Assembly
granted my request that the Governor be
made chairman of the Board of Higher
Education," he added.
He called his appointment to the
board "the best move the legislature
made for higher education" in the last
session as it enables him to see "what a
mess we are in."
"It took me two years to begin to see
the picture: two years of listening to
arguments, two years of listening to the
quarelling, two years of refereeing
personalities, two years of watching
institutions apply for more and more
programs without dropping any that were
outmoded and unproductive.
"And I'm tired of it," Scott said.
'Tired of the wasted effort, the endless
jockeying, the constant feuding."
Scott also called upon private
institutions "like Campbell, Duke,
Livingstone" and others to provide
competition for the state-supported
"Let us put aside old feuds and
personality clashes; let us respond to the
challenge before us with a determination
that the total program of higher
education in North Carolina will be
enhanced," he commented. "We can do
this. We must."
His recent criticism of University
officials somewhat relaxed, the Governor
implied Consolidated University PresMent

university administrators in America
today," Scott said. "We're fortunate to

Clark talked frankly Monday about
the prospects of the team for the rest of
the year. "We have sent 30 teams to 20
tournaments this year at an average cost
of SI 85 per tournament. The travel
includes trips to the West Coast-UCLA,
Redlands, and Southern Cal."
Clark intimated finances had often
hindered the teams in participation.
Often the debaters have economized by
driving all night rather than paying motel
fees. In several instances, tournament
officials who have wanted the teams to
compete, such as in the Harvard
Tournament, have waived entrance fees,
and have helped to put up the debaters
for the night.
Clark added he found the debaters had
been doing "everything under the sun to
stretch the budget so we can carry on a
truly national debate program on such
