NEW YORK-Notre Dame's basketball
team hasn't been waking up any echoes
But the Fighting Irish have been
playing well enough in the last two weeks
for Coach Dean Smith to say. ' It's too
bad we didn't play them earlier in the
He meant December, when Notre
Dame was losing 94-29 to Indiana. The
Irish, now 6-14, have won three of their
last four in preparation for today's 3:30
game with Carolina in Madison Square
The Tar Heels, 20-3 overall and 7-2 :n
the ACC, are still considerable favorites
for a number of reasons. After
Wednesday's overtime loss at Maryland.
Carolina will be eager to prove something.
The Garden has also been a good place
for UNC basketball. The Tar Heels won
the NIT there last March.
However, Steve Previs may not play
today. Groin injuries have caught up with
him in the last two games. If he doesn't
play, Kim Huband will take his guard

Student Legislature passed a bill
Thursday night which provides for a
referendum Feb. 29 on the North
Carolina Public Interest Research Group
Following a successful motion to
reconsider the bill which was defeated
last week, Rep. Gerry Cohen introduced
an amendment establishing not only a
referendum on a mandatory fee increase
to finance PIRG, but also on a
constitution for the group.
The vote was 25-6.
by Winston Cavin
NC-PIRG coordinator Bob Beason has
accepted a challenge for a public debate
from Young Americans for Freedom
(YAF) leader David Adcock.
Adcock, state chairman of YAF, and
leader of his group's anti-PlRG campaign,
asked for a debate to be held on campus
so that "students can have a chance to
hear both sides of the issue."
"I've received a lot of feedback since
the article explaining our anti-PIRG
movement appeared in The Daily Tar
Heel," Adcock said. "Some people have
told me that they signed the petition, but
that now they have reservations about
Adcock said members of Student
Legislature and other campus leaders are
among those expressing "second
thoughts" to him.
Meanwhile, Beason charged that
Adcock "didn't have all his facts straight"
in the statement he gave the DTH tast
"I think the debate would be a good
thing for the students," Beason said. "We
want a chance to show the discrepancies
in Adcock's statement."
"I'm sure when people read things like
these (Adcock's charges) in the paper,
they probably do have reservations about
us," Beason said.
Beason said the debate should include
two or three people from each side. He
added that he would be happy to have
Adcock contact him in PIRG's offices in
Suite C of the Student Union concerning
the arrangements for the debate.
TODAY: rainy and cold; highs
in the low 40s, lows in the low 30s;
40 percent chance of precipitation,
chance of snow clearing expected
The first two articles of the PIRG
constitution follow the wording of the
PIRG petition, which more than 7,000
students have already signed. (PIRG
coordinator Bob Beason said Friday the
group will continue its petition drive.)
Under the constitution, PIRG will be
administered by a board of seven student
representatives, to be elected each spring
by the student body. No more than five
graduate, professional or undergraduate
students shall serve on the board.
VhiIe the board would fill its own
vacancies and elect its chairman from the
membership, any member of the board
would be subject to recall under the
student constitution. The local board
would also choose delegates to the state
PIRG governing board.
The constitution also provides for the
dissolution of PIRG by the Board of
Governors after a referendum of the
student body, or during any semester
when more than one-half of the student
body requests refunds, or if 30 percent of
the student body vote to dissolve PIRG in
a referendum or initiative.
Specifics for refund proceedure under
the constitution state any student may
receive a refund from PIRG during the
sixth week of classes. Refunds would be
available in at least three public places,
one of which must be the Student Union.
Any student receiving a refund will have
his identification card marked.
Although the constitution will take
effect upon a majority affirmative vote of
the students, it must also be approved by
the Board of Governors.
An amendment to Cohen's bill offered
by Rep. Larry McMahon would have
given students three alternatives on the
PIRG referendum: the mandatory fee
increase, a voluntary checkoff system or
no establishment of PIRG at all. It was
defeated, 18 to 1 1.
In toher action, SL passed the
appointments of Cathey Newsome and
Richard Whittecar to the Elections Board
and inducted two new members, Bill Hill
from James dormitory and Grover Cable

$14,000 raised last year
The third Chapel Hill Walk Against
Hunger, sponsored by the Young World
Development (YWD) Committee of the
UNC YM-YWCA, will be held on March 25.
The Walk is part of the national Walk
program of the American Freedom From
Hunger Foundation. The Foundation is a
non-profit, non- governmental foundation
for public education and action of
development issues. Walk Coordinator Amy
Davidson said this week.
"Each walker obtains sponsors who
agree to contribute so much per mile the
walker completes," Davidson said. "The
walkers collect their pledges after the Walk
and deposit the money in a special bank
account. The money is then forwarded to
the Foundation in Washington, D. C. and
distributed to the projects."

Davidson said the committee, which
includes townspeople as well as college
students, has mapped a 25 mile route
through the community.
According to Don Ingalls, project
committee chairman, the funds are divided
three ways: 42.5 percent to domestic
projects. 42.5 percent to international
projects and 15 percent to the Foundation
to earn on its national education program
on development issues.
"The equal distribution of funds
between domestic and international
projects symbolizes the 'global village
concept.' that is. that all the peoples of the
world are tied together and therefore
barriers to development must be fought
both in this country and abroad equally,"
The Walk this year will be included as
one of the Carolina Symposium activities.
One of the programs of the Symposium's
topic. "Mind of the South."' will focus on
hunger and development efforts in the
region." Davidson said.
"For people to be able to develop to
their highest potential they must be free
not only from hunger, but from disease,
illiteracy and oppression in all forms.
Davidson added. "The walkers are saying to
the community that they carry these hopes
for the future with them."
About 500 Chapel Hillians participated
in last year's Walk which raised over
S 14.000 for self-help development projects.
The Walk last year funded the
Inter-Church Social Service and the
