(Staff photo by Cliff Kolovson) by Rick Erewer Sports Writer NEW YORK CITY -Carolina begins its quest here today for the basketball championship it did not want just a week ago. The Tar Heels oppose the University of Massachusetts at 11 a.m. in the opening game of the National Invitational Tournament (NTT) at Madison Square Garden. The game will be televised locally on channel 28. However, just a week ago the Tar Heels had no intention of coming to New York for the NTT. Instead they were aiming for the right to represent the Atlantic Coast Conference in the NCAA Championship Tournament. But a 52-51 last-second loss to South Carolina in the ACC Tournament finals OA i fff) of' far Vol. 79, No. 23 79 Years of Edit&fial Freedom V Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Saturday, March 20, 1971 Founded February 23, 1893 by Lana S tames Staff Writer The Student Health and Welfare Committee (SHWC) proposed an organizational structure for the Student Health Service in its third report released last week. The structure , is a corporate bureaucracy, incorporated as a free standing organization. It would include a board of directors, an executive director, a liveability office, illness services division, research and evaluation division, division of ease. vs. disease, and education division. '' The board of directors would have the J. x 1. i; j u 1 j.1 puwcr io mane ponty anu wuuiu uc mc ftnal arbiter in the health system. A majority of directors, the AHWC Contends, should be consumers. ir -The board ought to determine the scope of services, population base, interview personnel seeking employment, review periodic utilization reports, determine cost to consumers, have hiring and firing power and recommend insurance coverage after competitive bidding," the report stated. The SHWC also advocated giving undergraduates and er vice coae proposed. graduates course services credit applicable towards their academic major or advanced degree in appropriate fields. Every consumer, they said, should ' have an equal opportunity to get on the board of directors, preferably by referendum. The executive director would be an accomplished administrator with a health care background, according to the SHWC report. A minority of SHWC proposed that . instead of having a permanent executive director an alternative system of annually rotating the directors;, of the various he alt h" K service? " divMonsrv'" should be ' employed. . ' ' - The advantages of such a setup, they stated, include economy, better communications among directors and between directors and the board. A liveability division, i.e. an ecology division, would be organized to concern itself with the air, water, noise, radiation and University construction "to make the community more "liveable." The illness services division would concern itself with primary care and pre-primary care. It ought to include ambulatory and inpatient services, dental and a pharmacy. Also included would be a family meuicme suuoimiun for student families. The SHWC supported an expanded role for RN's in this area and the use of nurse practitioners. 2 The research and evaluation division would include studies of the health and illness patterns and the role the health service itself plays in promoting health and illness. The division of ease vs. disease would be a counseling division. Drugs and mental health would be concerns here, ..The educatioj,diyiionL, would be v responsible for disseminating information on health, illnesses and services available. This group would be involved in pairing of students' felt needs with resources or development of an appropriate resources. Also in its report the SHWC supported the active recruitment of black health service providers; the concept of satellite clinics; action on the issue of drugs; utilization of existing ; University ... resources whenever possible, economical and beneficial for. the student health service; specific, written delineation of student health service policy ' which should be made available to every student on campus; and a change of the name of the Student Health Service to the Students' Health Service. H The SHWC requested that Chancellor J. Carlyle Sitterson make the health 'consultants' report public. Dr. Addie Lou Klotz, Joseph Axelrod and Dr. John Curtis visited the campus last week in an official capacity to evaluate the present health care services and make recommendations for its further direction. Also requested was an audit of the Student Health Service fiscal affairs and copies 6f whatever written planning : studi9j-4ocuments r reports -that exist pertaining toor r justifying, new construction for the Student Health Service. last Saturday deprived UNC of chance. The Gamecocks, not advanced to the NCAA Eastern Regionals. Carolina, the regular-season ACC champ, then accepted a bid to play in the NTT or "the tournament of also-rans" as it has become known in the last few years. Still, the NTT is a prestigious event. As one Carolina official is quick to point out, when the season is over there are two champs the winners of the NCAA and the NTT. A Carolina sweep in the Garden would lessen somewhat the disappointment of the ACC Tournament loss The NTT field is a strong one this year. Among the favorites are Carolina; Louisville, who tied for the Missouri Valley championship and lost a play-off to Drake; Michigan, second-place finisher in the Big Ten; and three of the top teams in the East Massachusetts, LaSalle and St. Bonaventure. The big problem facing the Tar Heels is a psychological one. Can they bounce back from the disappointing loss to the Gamecocks? "I'm glad we've had a week to prepare for this game," says UNC Coach Dean Smith. "The loss to South Carolina was, of course, very disappointing. When the season started, our goal was to win the ACC Tournament. We did not do that. "Now we have to prepare ourselves mentally for a new goal-the NIT. It's going to be tough." Making Carolina's task even more difficult is the fact that the Tar Heels have drawn an exceptionally tough opening round opponent in Massachusetts. The Redmen are 23-3 for the season and were unbeaten in 10 Yankee Conference games. In fact, they too were hoping to be playing in the NCAA Tournament this year. "The NCAA took our automatic bid to their tournament away five years ago," says Ram Coach Jack Leaman. "They promised us that if the conference produced a good team, they would consider inviting it to the Eastern Regionals opening round. .."Well,', we were undefeated in the !-4eague- and-felt we -deserved an invitation. We hope to prove that in the NIT." In compiling that 23-3 record, Massachusetts did not nlav one of the that toughest schedules erang :ifas XL - 9 by Lou Bonds Staff Writer It's official! Spring has received royal permission to enter the invisible kingdom of King Nyle I "if it behaves itself." And to celebrate this auspicious occasion, the king himself has declared Sunday "Paris in the Piedmont Day," with a festival planned, honoring "spring and the coming birthday of John Sebastian Bach." King Nyle made the announcment Friday. As a word of explanation to foreigners from the visible world, King Nyle I was born Nyle Frank and used to be a graduate in political science at what used to be the University of North Carolina. All that has changed now. On December 1, Nyle autocratically proclaimed himself invisible supreme ruler of the universe. And that means ruler of the winter, summer, fall and spring, too. : No one has dared dispute that claim so King Nyle has decided to exercise his power graciously and allow "spring to sprung." "Paris of the Piedmont Day" will be held (where else?) in Carrboro, which has been renamed accordingly, "Paris of the Piedmont." ; The celebration, which is for real, will begin at 11:30 a.m. Sunday in front of the Carrboro Town Hall when King Nyle will receive his subjects. Somewhere between noon and 12:30 p.m. spring athletics will begin when the Carrboro Vampires, representing the Invisible University of North Carolina (IUNC), will meet the Paris of the Piedmont Parisians in a rugby match at nearby Lion's Club baseball field. The athletics will continue at 1:30 pjn. as the Carrboro Clansmen baseball team squares off with the Harmony Health Food Hallucinators. Clansmen manager Tim . Zannes, also a political science major, said Friday there will be no trouble in identifying the Carrboro club as they will be the teanv "sporting the white hoods." The tension mounts at 3 p.m. in the World Series of Invisible Athletics. An IUNC squad will face their traditional rivals, DMC 70, in a kickball game. These are the same teams that met a few weeks ago in the championship basketball game of the invisible universe. "The baseball team has already signed. Dick Grubar, Jim Bouton, Jim Brown arid other stars," Zannes said, sounding just a little bit suspicious. "Well, actually, we really did try to contact Jim Bouton but he wasn't there when we called." Also, at 3 p.m., the Royal Carrboro Theater will present the First Annual Carrboro Festival of Life with their production of "I Love Paris in the Springtime." The stage will be set in front of the town hall. King Nyle has invited all of his subjects to come on out and join the fun and participate in the activities. "I suspect that no one will -know exactly where the Carrboro Town Hall is," Nyle said. "It is located at the end of West Main Street." ' Naturally, the admission is free since invisible money doesn't hold well at the local banks, according to Frank. "The only thing you should bring is some food to share, some blankets, musical instruments and a few ground sloths," he said. "Oh yeah, Queen Elizabeth will be there, too." It will be nice to have spring arrive officially. In fact, King Nyle says that if it behaves itself extra nice "I may sign it up for a three-year contra rt." 1 Spring in Chapel Hill is a time for runnmg through Battle Park, dodging the trees ana jumping over the mudpuddles. Becky Beeston, a junior from Chspel Hill, found the park a great place to spend a spring afternoon last week. (Staff photo bv Cliff Kolovson) Your s by Pam Phillips Staff Writer Every year around spring break time a macabre rumor circulates around campus concerning a sure-fire way to make some easy money sell your body to a medical school. This plan has all the elements needed for success. The money supposedly is good and, at a later, more affluent date one should be able to change his mind and simply repurchase his body. However this plan has several flaws, the foremost of which concerns the legality of one's selling his own body (or anybody's body for that urs but matter). According to Mrs. Mansfield of the anatomy department of the. UNC Medical School, it is illegal for them to purchase a body. The Duke Medical School supported this claim and additionally commented that they receive several calls a day from those who would like to sell their bodies. The only money that any medical school in this state pays out for a body involves the costs that may be incurred when a body has been willed to them. In that case, the costs of transportation and embalming are accepted by the school. There are two ways in which a medical school may receive a body. The first way is the reception of unclaimed bodies. These may be people who have died in prison or in a hospital unclaimed or unidentified by their relatives or by the authorities. To gain possission of these bodies a definite procedure must be followed by the medical school. North Carolina General Statute 90-21 1 set up a Board of Anatomy consisting of three members representing the medical schools of UNC, Duke and Bowman Gray. These rnen are in charge of the distribution of dead human bodies for the purpose of promoting the study of anatomy in the state. Furthermore a following Statute, 90-214, says the bodies that this board has obtained you can t in the'. Included among its victories are wins over Hofsira, St. Michael's Fairfield and lorn. However, they did play lOth-ranked Fordham a strong game before losing 87-79. The Massachusetts attack is built around 6-6 junior forward Julius Erring, who this week was selected the best player in the Northeast. He has been named to the third team All-America by both major wire services. Erring is currently the third leading re bo under in the' with a 19.9 average. His 27.5 scoring average is 1 1 th best in the nation. "He may be the best player we will h3ve faced this season," says Smith about Erring. "He's a great rebounder, a good scorer inside and he's quick enough to bring the ball up against a full-court press." UNC guard Steve Previs calls him "a junior Sidney Wicks." Joining Erving in the frontcourt will be 6-3 forward Chris Coffin, who averages 5.5 and 6-7 center Ken Mathias, who averages 1 0.4 points and 9.6 rebounds. Both guards are 5-10 juniors. John Betancourt averages 12.8 and Mike Pagliara is hitting at a 1 0.8 clip. Both are good ball-handlers and performed fairly well against Fordham's tough full-court press. Massachusetts, like Carolina, likes to play man-to-man defense and thus Erving is likely to be paired against UNC's Dennis Wuycik on both ends of the court. Wuycik and Erving were teammates last, summer on the U.S. Pre-Olympic Development Team that toured Europe. It will probably be Dennis' job to keep Erving off the Rams' offensive board. Carolina will start the same team that carried it to a 22-6 record. Bill Chamberlain and Lee Dedmon, both of whom played brilliantly down the ACC stretch, will join Wuycik on the front line. Soph George Karl and Previs, who was sensational in the ACC Tournament, will be in the backcourt. A victory for the Tar Heels today would send them into the quarterfinals Monday night against the winner of the Louisville-Providence . game; Tickets for that Monday night battle would be available at the City Squire (Broadway and 51st-52nd) from Mrs. Sarge Keller. Hoe ger walk set for today by Sue English Staff Writer Hundreds of youngsters, students and adults will be engaged in a full day's activities as they walk part or all of the 25-mile route in the Walk Against Hunger today. Sponsored by the YMCA, the first marchers will step off at 8 a.m. Registration begins at 7 a.m. in front of the Institute of Government. Howard Lee, mayor of Chapel Hill, will lead the Walk after giving a short "pep talk" to the participants. The purpose of the Walk is to show concern for the problems of hunger and development in our nation and around the world. The route of the Walk winds in and out of the 25 mile area, avoiding major highways. The group will detour down to Franklin Street around noon in order to eat lunch at The Planetarium. Check points are provided at spaced intervals along the route for refreshments and first aid. Kentucky Fried Chicken donated several buckets of chicken to the participants. Volunteers from the University and the high school will be serving as waitresses and "nurses" at the various stopping points. Cars will be available for those walkers who are unable to make it to the end of the course. See Walk, page 2 sell 11 distributed with due precaution to shield them from the public view among the several medical schools in a proportion to be agreed upon by the board. All costs must be paid by the recipients. The second, and most unusual, way in which medical schools receive their bodies is the bequeath. Under N.C. statute 90-216.1 "Any person who may otherwise make a will in this state may by will dispose of the whole or any part of his body to a teaching institution, university, college, State Department of Health, legally licensed hospital, or any other legally licensed hospital agency or commission operating an eyebank, bone or cartilege bank, a blood bank or any other bank of a similar nature or kind designated for the rehabilitation of the maimed." Any person of sound body of 18 years or more may give all or any part of his body for medical reasons. Person. who meet these qualifications may give their bodies to science by a document other than a wilL However it has been suggested by the courts that these people consult a lawyer to make the procedures easier. The donee (recipient) of the body has the right to accept or reject the gift under N.C. statute 90-220.7 (a). Most of the statutes governing gifts to medical schools in North Carolina were passed in 1969, in the Uniform Anatomical Gift Act.
