nation before the game. Carolina's record
now drops to 13-3, 5-2 in the Atlantic Coast
conference, while Wake moves to 15-2 and 5
1 and into the conference lead.
Carolina led the entire game by as much
as 15 points early in the second half until
Wake caught up and jumped ahead 61-60
with four minutes to go in the game.
Carolina had gone to the four-corners
offense with nine minutes to go, and Wake
had slowly chipped away at the Tar Heels'
seemingly safe lead. Carolina had a chance
to put the game out of reach of the persistent
Deacons when UNC reserve forward Bruce
Buckley was fouled with 36 seconds to go.
But, he missed two free throws and Wake

was called for blocking Wake's Jerry

Coach Carl Tacy said after the game, "but I
don't think any of them can compare with
this. We beat a great team. 1 don't know of

defend the four corners and contain it."
Wake forward Rod Griffin led all scorers
with 21 points. Ford led Carolina scorers
with 19 points while Davis put in 18 and
Tommy LaGarde 16. Griffin also led the
rebounding with 12 while LaGarde pulled

Myths and jokes about medical school
cadavers are perennial, but the task of
acquiring them is no laughing matter.
Schools like UNC depend upon people
bequeathing their bodies for study after
death. That means med schools rarely have a
surplus of cadavers, for many potential
donors dislike the idea of being
studied. . .ever. Families may oppose the
idea, or the donor may change his mind on

If the proposal is passed by the CGC,
it will be submitted for approval by the
student body in the Feb. 9 elections.
r Under.the provisions of the proposal,
the Daily Tar Heel would be funded by
at least 16 per cent of student activities
fees. The 16 per cent figure is based on
the 1976-77 appropriation by CGC.
While the Daily Tar Heel would not
have to submit a yearly budget to the
CGC for approval, it would remain
responsible to SG and to the Student
Activities Fund Office.
Alan Murray, editor of the Daily Tar
Heel, explained that the change would
result in a separation of press and
government that does not exist now.
"Under the present system the Tar

said. "The budget is the most important

A few years ago candidates in student elections
could spend an unlimited amount of money on their
campaignsAnd those who had more could plaster the
campus with posters and flyers, buying a decided edge
over their opponents.
The Campus Governing Council changed things in
Dec. 1 974 by adding a spending limit act to the General
Elections Law. The act held maximum campaign
expenditures for the offices of student body president
and Daily Tar Heel editor to $250.
Candidates for other offices were limited o lesser

UNC's medical school recommends that
the family of the donor be consulted before
bequeathing the body. A family's objection
is not legally binding, but considerable grief
may arise in such a situation.
A funeral service may be held if the body is
bequeathed, and the medical school will pay
the costs of transporting the body after the
service. If the body is to be removed directly
after death, the medical school will also pay
the cost of embalming.
Myths are common about the process of
acquiring cadavers, and a prime one is that
medical schools will pay a person to
bequeath his body. This is false, as is the
belief that a medical student can work on a
cadaver from his hometown.
"We don't want a situation where some
student would work on a person's body from
his hometown," a UNC med school'
spokesperson said. "You could see him go

Murray also said that this system of
financing would not affect student input
to the paper because the editor is
elected by the students, nor would it
result in increased student fees.
He added that since the Daily Tar
Heel is a large business, unlike most
organizations funded by SG, it requires
a different budgeting system.

lowered the buying power of those limits by as much as
20 per cent.
"The latest word was that a major portion of the
printing industry raised their prices effective Jan. 3,
1977, by 6 to 8 per cent," said Steve Gould, general
manager of Student Graphics.
He explained that this increase is in the actual cost of
the paper, which is transferred immediately to the
retail customer. This means that an order which cost
$50 last year now costs $54. Coupling this with the
usualvprofit increase, Gould said, the inflation rate has
been pushed much higher.
"If Student Graphics itself were to keep pace with
the inflationary trend over the past year, we would
probably have raised our rates by 2 1 percent," he said.
Gould said Student Graphics has not passed on costs
at this rate because it essentially has a non-profit
