Carolina clinched the ACC replar season
championship Wednesday night amidst a chorus
of goodbyes and the familiar rousing chant of
"We're number one."
The Tar Heels extended their season's record
to 20-4 and their conference mark to 1 1-2 with
a superb second half that overwhelmed N.C.
UNC did not miss any of its 18 foul shots and
revived its quick, balanced attack in the second
period after the Tar Heels got off to a stumbling
With five seniors making their final
Carmichael Auditorium appearance, the Tar
Heels were keyed from the beginning, but took
15 minutes to get off the mark.
After that forwards Dennis Wuycik and Bill
Chamberlain took things in hand and with the
aid of plenty of nifty assists, eliminated the
Wolfpack from the inside.
Carolina outrebounded the visitors 59-44 and
accumulated 27 assists to only nine for the Pack.
The Tar Heels also outscored State 25-10 in
the opening nine minutes of the second period
to build a 70-52 lead.
This inspired the Carmichael faithful to one
of the noisiest outbursts of the year as the Tar
Heels raced to their fourth ACC title in five
With Lee Dedmon, Dave Chadwick, Don
Eggleston, Dale Gipple and Richard Tut tie
bowing out at home, the crowd of 8,800 was
lively and spirited from tipoff to finish.
Along the way the fans also saluted and bade
farewell to three T;x Heel football stars, Don
McCauley, Flip Ray and Paul Hoolahan.
It was hardly surprising, therefore, when the
"We're number one" cries went up in the final
The Tar Heels, finishing up an unbeaten stint
in Carmichael this year, are actually ranked just
12th in the country, but no one was
acknowledging that fact
Carolina enters the annual ACC tournament
next week in Greensboro with the top speed and
a first round pairing with Clemson.
It was a highly satisfactory conclusion to a
surprising year in the view of the Carmichael
fans. But for State Coach Norm Sloan, it was
downright embarassing, by his own admission.
"The difference between winning and losing
is effort," he saicj. We were soundly beaten and
in my estimation, our basketball team is far
from what it should be. Unfortunately we have
looked this bad often this year."
The Pack got off to a good start as UNC
Coach Dean Smith inserted the Tar Heel seniors
in the lineup.
The visitors had a seven point advantage
before the normal Tar Heel starters were
together on the floor.
Then began a steady battle to counter strong
play by State's Paul Coder and Rick Holdt up to
halftone. Coder got 13 points and Holdt 12 in
Carolina succeeded in cat chirg up five
minutes before intermission on a jump shot by
Wuycik-two of his 12 points in the half.
The Tar Heels then achieved a 45-42 spread
before time expired in the period.
State crumbled before what Smith described
as UNC's finest half of the year, however, after
the rest break.
Chamberlain made six consecutive points to
give the Tar Heels a 55-44 advantage five
minutes into the half. He and Wuycik crashed
the boards, as did Dedmon and Chadwick, and
the Tar Heels had an easy time from that point.
"We were tremendously active on the inside,"
noted Smith, "and I believe it was our best 20
minutes of the year.
"This is a tremendous tribute to our
seniors it's a great way for them to bow out. I
started them because I think anyone good
enough to wear Carolina blue deserves this
Dedmon finished with 13 points and 11
rebounds and received a standing ovation when
he fouled out with the win tucked away.
Chadwick had a strong finale, too, as he
produced 12 points and claimed 12 rebounds.
Wuycik and Chamberlain were sensational in
getting 25 and 20 points respectively. They also"
pulled down 14 and 10 rebounds apiece.
"Auld lang syne" had a happy sound for the
Tar Heel Bill Chamberlain and State's Al Heartley go after a loose ball during the
early moments of Wednesday night's game in Carmichael. Chamberlain's aggressive
play was one of the big factors which led to the UNC win. (Staff photo by John

Officers of the junior class will meet
with Associate Dean of Student Affairs
James O. Cansler today with a demand
that compulsory dormitory residence for
junior transfers be abolished.
The demand is backed in part by
Robert Kepner, director of Residence
Life, who has recommended that
"considerably greater latitude be
instituted" so as to permit exceptions "to
the residence policy ... on an individual
basis with each student who feels that his
personal situation merits" such an
Kepner also suggests that dormitory
residence at UNC summer sessions be
considered as partial fulfillment of the
two years' dormitory residency
requirement for non-transfers.
Unanimous support for the removal of
required housing for junior transfers,
which has come from Student
Legislature, the Residence College
Federation (RCF) and the Committee on
University Residence Life (CURL), will
also be cited as evidence for change by
Junior Class .President Lee Capps, Vice
President Cecil Miller and Steve Saunders
of CURL and Suzanne Wellborne of RCF.
Capps says a decision on the
continuation of the one-year-old policy
must be rendered within "the next
two-and-one-half weeks because room
reservation forms for next fall will go out
soon and newly admitted transfers have
to be informed about what they will or
will not be required to do about living
arrangements for next year."
Kepner was reported by Capps as
having said in a Monday meeting that
required dormitory housing was
indefensible from an educational
standpoint, but that it was necessitated
by economic considerations since the
University's residence halls sport a debt
of some $12 million.
Capps' retort is that the University will
probably face another housing shortage
next year similar to the shortage last fall.
The killing of the required dormitory
residency for junior transfers would help
alleviate this problem, he continued.
Current University policy states
upperclassmen will not be allowed to
reside in dormitories if UNC's 6,681
dormitory spaces do not provide
sufficient space for the freshmen,
sophomores and junior transfers and any
others who elect to reside in the dorms.
"I question the logic of this," Capps
responds. "It just does not make sense for
the University to make people who do
not want to live in the dorms live in
them, and to kick out people who want
to live in them."
Concerning the outcome of the
meeting with Cansler, Capps is
"perplexed; I really don't know what to
expect. I'm afraid that Steve Saunders
and Cecil Miller have more faith in Dean
Cansler than I do."
Advancement of Minority and
The committee is a student run group
which tries to recruit minority group
students," Grady related.
'They bring high 'school students to
Chapel Hill to see what college is like and
to interest them in furthering their
education," he said.
Grady added the money had been
raised by the committee itself, "but must
be appropriated by Student Legislature."
The money will be used to pay the
University for housing 350 students in
dormitories for three weekends.
"Last year the committee didn't have
to pay the University for the dorm rooms
because there were empty floors in
James," explained Grady.
This year, however, the University is
charging $5.50 of each visiting student
for beds and linen.
"I believe this program should be
considered a part of the University's
recruitment policy and paid for by the
University," Grady said.
In other action, a bill will be
introduced by legislator Lee Hood Capps
to give class presidents power to
recommend appointments to their
"As it stands now, the student body
president fills all vacancies in each class's
executive committee, composed of the
president, vice president, secretary and
treasurer,' Capps said.
"If class officers are going to function
they need to be a group that responds to
the needs of their students."
Under the present system
appointments could be made strictly as
political appointments," Capps charged.
"If someone is a class president, why
should 'someone above him make
appointments to his executive council."
Capps said the bill has the support of
Student Body President Tommy Bello.

A gas price war which is making
customers happy but leaving most service
station owners puzzled as to how it
started is affecting Carrboro and
spreading to Chapel Hill.
Prices range from 22.9 cents per gallon
for regular at the newly opened
Sav-O-Ton on West Main in Carrboro to
28.9 cents for regular at other stations
taking part in the war.
"It's hard to say who started it or why
it was started,'' said Grey Moody,,
manager of the Mini-Mart service station
on Airport Road. "But how long it goes
on depends on how long managers are
willing to give away gas."
Some managers speculated that the
war began with Sav-O-Ton. "Four or five
days after they opened last week at 33.9
for regular, they started dropping prices,"
said Bill Burch, owner of Burch's Esso
Center on West Main in Carrboro. The
new station is across the street from
Jamie Marlowe, owner of the One-Hop
Food Mart and Service Station on West
Main in Carrboro, feels that the price war
began when prices began to increase last
week. "It's almost natural for it to
happen," he said. "A lot of stations went
up and a lot didn't, and those that didn't
made the others cut prices way down."
His prices are 22.9 regular and 25.9
high-test down from 32.9 regular.
An Esso representative visited
Carrboro this morning after Burch asked
for a discount. "We expect to drop prices
shortly," he said. "We asked for a
nine-cent discount, which owuld make
our price 28.9 for regular."
"Some of the stations like to cut
prices a little at a time," said Moody.
"But we like to do it all at one time. It
looks like a campaign to fight inflation,"
Most stations will keep their prices
down or lower them still further while
the war lasts.
All service stations affected by the
price war are selling their gas below cost.
"It makes the customers happy for a
while, but we have to make money,"
explained Moody. "So prices will have to
come up or else everybody win go
Burch, however, said he "hopes prices
stay down. Chapel Hill is about the
highest price district in the state," he
explained. "It's looking good and I hope
it keeps going. This is the cheapest it's
. been here in a long time.

Smokey Robinson and the Miracles
appeared before a packed house when
they played here three years ago.
Robinson, 28, is one of the foremost
writers of American pop music, and he is
vice-president of Motown Record Corp.
Bob Dylan refers to Robinson as
"America's greatest living poet."
Robinson himself says, "I like a song
that means something. Not just a lot of
words that rhyme, but words that will
Robinson does all of the songwriting
for the Miracles, one of the country's
oldest and most successful singing groups,
and he also writes for many of Motown's
ether "tists-tlie Temptations, Marvin
Gaye, Diana Ross, the Supremes, Brenda
Holloway and the Marvalettes.
Many other artists not on the Motown
label, including Sonny and Cher, the
Rolling Stones and the Beatles, have
recorded Robinson's songs.
Robinson's career beg3n in 1958 when
Berry Gordy Jr., founder and president of
Motown Records, hired the group to do
background for one of his independent
He liked one of my songs, 'Mama
Done Told Me, " Robinson said, "so he
put it on the flip side of our first record.
Then he listened to the other songs I had
written Berry tore each one apart and
showed me what was wrong with them."
The first big hit singles the group has
recorded are "Special Occasion," "I
Second That Emotion," "Going to a
Go-Go," 'Tracks Of My Tears," "Come
On and Do The Jerk," "Mickey's
Monkey," "You've Really Got A Hold
On Me," "What's So Good About
Good-Bye," "Shop Around," "Way Over
There" and "Ooo Baby, Baby."
