Carolina had 14 points on Virginia, and it
seemed reasonable to the Tar Heels to
assume they had made it to the finals of
the ACC Tournament.
This was Coach Dean Smith's
assessment of his team's thinking after 20
minutes of semi-final basketball before

The Tar Heels ran into shooting
miseries in the second half but eventually
prevailed 7S-68. Because Smith was not.

with three ACC titles in the. last four
seasons, advanced to a position for a try
at another without having a sharp night

Although he finished with a game hlh
26 points, he couldn't get the Cavs any
closer than five and with the team's big
men, BC1 Gerry and Scott McCandliih,
dead on their feet by this point, Virginia
could only stand and watch as USC went
into the four-comers for the List five
minutes of the game.
The Cavaliers were in trouble all right.
They got behind 6-0 in less than a minute
and then had to contend with the Tar
Heel full-court press.
Carolina applied its pressure defense
with varying intensity and effect.
Twice the Tar Heels forced Virginia to
turn over the ball on in-bounds play in
the first haif-and the Tar Heels
converted each of these opportunities
into field goals.
The press also served to make it
difficult for the Cavaliers to get the ball
inside to Gerry, where the muscular 6-7
forward is difficult to contain.
He made only nine points against
Dennis Wuycik's defense after getting 23
against Wake Forest.
The Tar Heels got yet another bit of
mileage out of the press, too. By forcing
the Cavs to labor in bringing the ball
upcourt, Carolina had in mind Coach Bill
Gibson's depthless bench.
"We did get weary," admitted Gibson,
"but our turnovers killed us. We were in a
hole from the start and mistakes really
prevented us from ever getting even.
"I can't say enough for our effort,
though. I couldn't have asked for more."
Dedmon totalled 19 points to pace
UNC while Chadwick added . 13 and Karl
and Chamberlain 1 2 each.
Carolina, which never lost sight of
tonight's 8:30 finale with USC, was very
happy to have Virginia in its rear-view

With only three more full days of electioneering left
before campus elections Tuesday the five candidates for
president of the student body are making their final
speeches, holding the last rallies and finishing the long
process of going door-to-door through the dorms.
Meeting as many students as possible seems to be the
major goal of most of the hopefuls for the top executive
post in Student Government.
Joe Stallings said he has visited almost every dorm on
campus and plans to return to several of the dorms
between now and election day.
"I'll be going back to the dorms to see the people I
missed on my first time through," he said.
Candidate Jim Flynt has visited most of the men's
residence halls and hopes to visit the women's dorms and
the remainder of the men's dorms over the weekend.
"I'll be continuing to go door-to-door in the
dormitories through Tuesday morning," Flynt said.
Completing his pledge of going to all the dorms on
campus is the goal for the remainder of the campaign of
"I don't have any rallies planned," Geddie said. "If I
did that, I wouldn't have time to finish going
door-to-door. I said I would go through the dorms and I
want to fulfill that pledge."
Pete Tripodi held a rally in the pit Thursday at noon,
an effort which he considers one of the most important
of his campaign. He is concentrating the efforts of his
try for the presidency on just .talking to as many
students as possible.
Several of the presidential candidates will participate
in a debate Sunday night at 8 p.m. in Gerrard Hall. The
debate is sponsored by the YM-YWCA and the Campus
"My campaign is building," Tripodi said.
"Individauls I have talked to are going out and talking
to many other people," he added.
o n n
Candidate Richard Stoner plans no door-to-door
campaigning but would like to have a rally.
"If people see me on campus, they can ask me about
my platform," Stoner said.
"If I could get hold of a PA system and talk to people
about my platform, it would be really great," he
Stoner said his platform is "free dope and fornicating
in the streets."
Over the weekend a variety of activities have been
planned by the candidates.
Flynt will release a platform late Sunday afternoon.
"The platform will be 'our' platform -that is, the
students I have talked to have had a great deal to do
with it," he said.
Stallings, will spend the majority of his time this
weekend planning for the installation of a student co-op
with the students who have worked with him on it.
"Regardless of the outcome of the election, the
groundwork for this effort needs to be completed as
soon as possible," he said.
Tripodi had no definite plans for the weedend except
for continuing to talk to students.
"Because I don't have the machinery or organization
the other people have, my only problem is time," he
All of the candidates commented they have been well
received in the various phases of their electioneering
efforts, especially in their campaigning in the
"The campaign is going well," Geddie said. "I'm not
sure I can really tell how well though, since I haven't
taken any polls like the other candidates."
Stallings felt very pleased about the progress of his
"Going door-to-door has been really invigorating. The
students have been willing to talk and willing to listen to
someone with something positive to say," he added.

The second Chapel Hill Walk Against
Hunger, scheduled for March 20, has
received the support of UNC Chancellor
J. Carlyle Sitterson.
Sitterson joins Chapel Hill Mayor
Howard Lee and superintendent of the
city school system Wilmer Cody in
supporting the fund-raising project.
The statement issued by Sitterson
read: "In our world of many paradoxes,
surely there is none crueler than the
presence of hunger among so many
Americans in this rich and affluent
society of ours.
"I want to commend our students for
p sponsoring and participating in the Walk
Against Hunger on March 20. I appeal to
all members of the University community
to join in supporting fully this important
and worthwhile undertaking.'
"Providing the means to eliminare
hunger wherever it may exist in the world
is the indispensable first step toward a
world society of peace and dignity."
The Walk is sponsored locally by the
YM-YWCA and nationally by the
American Freedom from Hunger
Foundation, a non-profit,
non-governmental foundation initiated by
President Kennedy to enlist individuals
and businesses in the-fight against hunger.
The Foundation assists walks, but local
committees such as the YM-YWCA make
all decisions concerning the Walk.
"The support of the city officials on
the one hand and that of Chancellor
Sitterson on the other are extremely
encouraging for two reasons." said Walk
Organizer Scott Morgan. "First of all, it
shows that our organization is clearly a
major one. not just a flash in the pan.
"Secondly, receiving support from
both the community and the University is
essential because the project of our
nature- can not be isolated from the
community," he pointed out. "I feel any
project that ties the University and the
community together is worthwhile almost
tor those reasons alone, not to mention
the other significant aspects of the Walk."
Walk cards are still available at desks in
the Carolina Union and at the Y. Persons
wishing to join the walk should pick up
cards and find sponsors who will agree to
pay them a certain amount of money for
each of the 25 miles they complete.
A pre-Walk meeting for all walkers will
be held on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in the
Great Hall in the Carolina Union. This is a
change in place from Carroll Hall printed
on the Walk pamphlets.
independent of Student Government, I
feel they should be editorially free as
well," Stirewalt said.
He favors putting financial and policy
control of the station under WCAR's
Board of Directors.
'The Board is composed of two
people from each residence college and
one from each fraternity and sorority
which subscribes to WCAR," Stirewalt
Over the past two years, WCAR has
been appropriated "about S8,000" from
Student Government, he said.
"If the station ever asks for money in
the future, control of WCAR will revert
to the Publications Board," explained
The bill was sent to the Finance
Committee for consideration.
A resolution supporting a bill in the
N.C. Legislature to give the student body
presidents of each of the Consolidated
University campuses a vote on the Board
of Trustees passed.
"I believe more student input into the
University's decision-making policy is
necessary because of a lack of rapport
between students and the Board," said
Lee Hood Capps, who introduced the bill.
'The presidents of the student bodies
should reflect the attitudes of the
students better than a board member who
has no day-to-day contact with the
students," he continued.
The procedure for graduate
departments to obtain their funds from
SL was finalized by a bill introduced by
Finance Committee Chairman Robert
"Each department should present the
Finance Committee a budget we will
approve or reject, with SL having a veto
power," said Grady.
"Finance Committee is not allocating
money," Grady emphasized. "We are
simply disbursing money already
allocated by SL."
He noted this procedure was being
used because "there are too many
departments for SL to pass on each one."

Craige, the only South Campus dormitory
left without one under the new elections
In other action, Student Legislature
decided to vote their share of General
Motors stock with the Project on
Corporate Responsibility. The Jim Tatum
Memorial Athletic award and UNC's
delegation to the State Student
legislature were also funded.
