students who had seen health service physicians gave them scores
of poor or less than adequate.

Hayden B. Renwick, associate dean of the
College of Arts and Sciences, Thursday night
received not only quips from roasters but three
standing ovations in support of his work in
minority affairs at the University.
In what the event's organizers described as a
strong show of unity among the UNC black
community, 300 people attended a roast
sponsored by the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity in
Renwick's honor in the Great Hall of the
The evening was filled with laughter and
applause, as friends, academic associates and
students roasted Renwick, who has gained
widespread attention as an outspoken critic of
the University's admissions policy and the lack
of an office for minority and disadvantaged
Michael Morales, afooaster and member of
Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, jokingly confessed,
"I'm extremely happy be here but not because
of you, dean my meal was free."
Morales added that Renwick's social life was
so good that his front yard was considered a

To a hooting audience she confessed that she
had discovered that Bennie Renwick was indeed

"First, Dean Renwick is a very loving father
and husband," Lee said. "Second, he is a real,

lover of you, the students, and he'll do all he can
for you. Fourth, he is a lover of his
friends.... And I'm real proud to be on the loving
end of his friendship."
Renwick received as much toasting as
roasting from the 18 speakers.
Allen Johnson, a graduate of the University
and roastmaster, called Renwick the students'
parent away from home and said if it had not
been for Renwick's efforts many black students
would not be enrolled in the University.
Moved to tears, Renwick was unable to make
a speech but thanked the audience for what he
called the greatest honor ever received in his life.

First in a five-part series
Students at UNC generally are optimistic about
the country's long-term future, but view 1980 as a
year of trouble, according to a survey conducted for
The Daily Tar Heel by a Business Administration
261 marketing research group.
Data for the survey was collected Nov. 8-12 using
door to door distribution of questionnaires that
covered a variety of campus, state and national
issues, l he sample
population of the UNC
student body was divided
into subsets according to
place of residence, and a
random sample of
students was selected
from each subset.
Personal interviews were
conducted with 208
students to get a good
response rate. The length of survey the survey ruled
out the possibility of telephone interviews.
Based on the size of the sample and a confidence
level of 95 percent, the results of the survey are
accurate within plus or minus 7 percent.
"The students had only one major problem
collecting the data "said Fritz Russ, business school
professor and instructor for the BA 261 research
group. "Some apartment complexes changed their
policy and asked that we not distribute the
questionnaires. This left a wide gap in the apartment
groups, which probably means we had a lower
proportion of older and independent students.
"Our sample pretty well represents the people on
this campus, though," he added.
At the time the survey was taken, the economy and
the energy crisis were seen as America's two most
important problems. By a slim margin, the students
polled said they disapproved of the way President
Carter was handling his job and predicted that Sen.
Edward Kennedy (D
Mass.) would be the
country's next president.
But, as Russ pointed
out, the results of the
survey may have changed
over the past two months
because of the crises in
Iran and Afghanistan.
"If one looks at the
way the polls have
changed nationally, one would expect some change
here as well." he said.
In other national issues, the campus favored
balancing the federal budget and capital punishment.
However, Russ said: "Probably right now, as
people are starting to think about the possibility of
confrontation with Russia, we're likely to have some
more polarized opinions."

While North Carolina's 73-70 Atlantic
Coast Conference victory Saturday over
Clemson reinforced theories that the Tar

the Tigers can't win period in Chapel
Hill, two more important questions were
The first query is serious and concerns
Carolina's inability this season to get
started off well during home games in
The second quiz is more light-hearted
and centers around a center or
forward who pretended for a few
minutes that his jump shot was as good as
Phil Ford's. When is Rich 'Chick'
Yonakor going to stop kidding everyone
and admit he belongs in the backcourt?
But wait a minute Yonakor doesn't
even shoot a jumper. It's more of a soft,
left-handed set shot, reminiscent of days
gone by when short guards arched long
bombs over zone defenses. The difference
was that the 6-foot-10 guys of Yonakor's
size stayed underneath to collect missed
shots. The tall men had their meal money
withheld if they dared to shoot anything
other than an inside hook.
Yonakor dared to shoot the open 15-to-20
footer against the Tigers and
connected on five straight midway
through the second half, adding some zest
to a sluggish Carolina attack which all
but tried to give the game away in the
Unforced errors caused UNCs woes in
the first half, and 13 turnovers stood out
more than the Heels' 61 percent field goal
shooting. Passes went between legs, off
hands and out of bounds without any
outstanding pressure from Clemson.
"I couldn't pinpoint it," said Tar Heel
forward Al Wood, "but we made a lot of
stupid mistakes where they didn't force it.
Concentration maybe that's what it is."
Wood offered one hypothesis for
Carolina's uninspiring starts in front of
the home fans. "When we play at home,
we're depending on the crowd to get
things going. We just can't do that."
Clemson led until the first-half buzer
when UNCs Pete Budko tipped in dUc
Colescott miss to put the Tar Heels ahead
35-33, a lead they never lost.
"We're thrilled to win a very important
ACC game," Carolina head coach Dean

for red measles
By BEVERLY SHEPARD
Student Health Services will vaccinate UNC studenti againM
red measles 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday in an effort to
contain an outbreak of the disease.
SHS officials decided Thursday to begin vaccinations because
a rash of 12 red measles cases in Carrboro school children had
spread to a UNC student. No other cases have been reported
Students living in Alderman, Stacy, Spencer and Old East
dorms and the Lambda Chi fraternity houvc are urged to receive
immunization. The student with the confirmed case of red
measles had been at these places recently.
Anyone who had the disease as a child or who has been
vaccinated since 1967 probably is protected, aid SHS physician
Dr. James McCutchan.
Orange County Health Director Jerry Robinson said students
vaccinated before Jan. I, 1967 received a strain of vaccine that
does not offer permanent protection.
For students uncertain whether they have had red measles or
the vaccine, McCutchan said, "If you do not know, get the shot."
The strain of vaccine used now should protect students for a
lifetime from both red measles and German measles, or three -day
measles, a less serious form of the disease, Robinson said.
He said those students who should not take the vaccine are: I)
those with more than an ordinary cold, 2) those allergic to eggs,
3) those allergic to the antibiotic neomycin or have taken the drug
cortisone, 4) those with cancer, leukemia or lymphoma, and 5)
those with any disease that lowers resutance to infection.
Officials are not certain whether measles vaccines could cause
problems for pregnant women or for their babies. Robinson said
pregnant w omen should not take the shot, and he advised women
