Fame is fleeting. .
For 48 hours Ernest McCutcheon, a junior economics major,
was a campus leader. He was pleasantly surprised Tuesday when
he was told by the Student Elections Board that he had been
elected 'to the uncontested Campus Governing Council from
District 19 with only one write-in vote to his credit.
However, it has since come to light that Brain Goray, a junior
economics and political science major, received two write-in
votes in the Feb. 13 elections, thus winning the election by an
overwhelming 67 percent margin.
. The Elections Board had known of Goray's two votes earlier,
but had disqualified him when they discovered he had moved,
said F. Scott Simpson. The board incorrectly thought Goray no
longer lived in District 19 and had therefore considered him
But Goray said he knew both he and his roommate had voted
for him in the general elections and so, when he read a story in The
Daily Tar Heel stating that McCutcheon had won by one vote, he
asked Simpson what had happened to his votes. Goray had
moved, but he had not moved out of the District 19 area.
McCutcheon said Wednesday he was not upset and
understood the confusion of the Election Board.

Scott Templeton and Rebekah Radisch emerged victorious in
run-off elections held Wednesday for Campus Governing
Council seats in Districts 13 and 17.
Templeton won 88-85 over opponent Rhonda Whicker in
District 13, which includes Upper Quad and Henderson
Residence College. He claimed 66 of 1 17 votes cast at the polling
site at Conner dorm and 22 of 56 in Ruffin.
"I plan to work to the best of my abilities for U pper Quad and
Henderson Residence College, to work toward a more decisive
student governing council," Templeton said.
Radisch defeated opponent Nancy Duffner by a 20-7 margin
for the District 19 seat, capturing 14 of 20 votes cast at the
Carolina Union, three of four at Wilson Library, both votes cast
at the Y Court and the lone vote cast at Scuttlebutt. District 17 is
an off-campus undergraduate district covering students living in
Northside, Colonial Heights and in Carrboro north of N.C. 54.
"I wouldn't say I made any promises," Radisch said. "1 just
plan on looking at everything objectively despite my
participation in other organizations. It was more or less a
campaign to those who knew me."
Radisch, a member of the Student Consumer Action Union
and the Association for Women Students, is a sophomore from
Kernersville. Templeton is a freshman from Boone.
All other CGC races had been decided in last week's general
student body elections. The new CGC takes office March 18.

RALEIGH When the local Elks Club calls the
N.C. State Athletic Department looking for a
basketball highlight film to show one night, the
Wolfpack officials ought to just send over a tape of
Wednesday night's State-Carolina game.
It was 40 minutes of what Pack head coach Norm
Sloan called "near perfection." It was Clyde Austin
and Hawkeye Whitney's last home game. It was State
And the final score State by 63-50 was a near
perfect indicator of how thoroughly the Wolfpack
outplayed the Tar Heels.
The Pack hit an amazing 25-of-34 field goal
attempts 73.5 percent including U-of-12 by
Whitney on his way to a game-high 26 points. And
State's shots weren't layups and tip-ins; most came
from the 18-foot range.
At the other end, Carolina faced a quick, hawking
defense throughout the game. The Heels were able to
dent neither the Pack's zone nor man-to-man defense
with any measureable success for most of the game,
connecting on only 45.5 percent of their shots.
"I thought N.C. State played an outstanding
game " Carolina head coach Dean Smith said. "It's
hard to defeat this team any team three times in
one year?Carolina beat State in the Big Four and last
month in Carmichael Auditorium.
"They shot very well," Smith said. "They were not
difficult shots, but they were from outside. Just look
at this shot chart from the first half. We've never seen
anything like it." (State was 16-of-21 in the first half.)
"It was a great game by just a tremendous bunch of
guys," Sloan said. "There's more affection and love
on this team than people realize. There were a lot of
guys playing awfully hard for one thing, to help each
other to win the game."
The game started out slowly for the first few
minutes, both teams passing the ball around
seemingly dozens of times before taking a shot.
Carolina took the lead 2-0 at the 18:04 mark when
forward Al Wood tossed in an 1 8-footer, showing no
effect of a fractured index finger on his shooting
After Whitney tied the game, John Virgil gave
Carolina its second and final lead at 4-2 on a 15
footer of his own. The teams traded baskets until
State went up for good with 9:09 remaining when
guard Dereck Whittenburg hit a 20-foot jumper to
make it 18-16.
State drew out to as much as a nine-point lead with
2:54 left, but Carolina whittled the deficit back to
four before Whitney hit two free throws with :01 to
put the Pack up 36-30 at the half.
State came out inthe second half and built the lead
to 10 at 46-36 with 14: 16 left, but Carolina ran off six
straight points to pull to four.
The Pack's Kenny Matthews put an end to the
Heel run, though, when he came right back with a 20
footer to start State on an 8-1 spree, and the game
was as good as decided.
"We got close midway through the second half,"
Carolina forward Mike O'Koren said. "But
Matthews hit a shot and we didn't get close after that.
"It gets pretty depressing when you play good
defense, and they just keep knocking them in from
deep," said O'Koren, who had 13 points.
"It was a good game," said Whitney, who was
voted player of the game. "1 always think we could
have played better. The shots I was taking tonight

Cable television, which will be available in
Chapel Hill by summer, also will be coming to
the University campus, James Cansler,
associate vice chancellor for student affairs, said
"There will be cable TV in the residence
halls," Cansler said. "I don't think there is much
doubt it will be coming to campus."
Cansler is a member of the committee
established in December by former Chancellor
N. Ferebee Taylor to study the possibility of
bringing cable television to campus and also to
investigate University use of communication
technology. Cansler is chairman of a
subcommittee that is studying cable television
use in dorms.
Cansler said the University would have to
decide if cable television should be restricted to
common areas of dorms or should be available
in individual rooms.
"One of the things that is relatively clear is
that residence halls should at least have one
cable television in the common areas," Cansler
How extensive cable television will be in
dorms, Cansler said, will depend on the amount
it will add to dorm tents. Cansler said he
assumed the cost of cable television would come
from student rents.
Cansler also said he thought campus cable
television would have to be provided by Village
Cable Co., the company selected in November
for the town's cable TV franchise. But the
University has the authority to choose its own
cable television franchise.
"There would be no (practical) alternative on
that, because Village Cable has the franchise
from Chapel Hill," Cansler said. "You can't get
to the University campus except through
Cansler said it is too soon to predict when
dorms might have cable television.
In its application for the town franchise,
Village said it would have the town's cable
system operating within one year.
But Jim Heavner, president of Village, said
Wednesday that he expects to begin operating
the system in May and to have cable in 5,000
homes by Labor Day. Off-campus students
returning to school for the fall semester should
be able to hook up to cable, he said.
Village's planned installation fee is $39.95.
Monthly rates vary according to programs
The Town Council recently approved a
special use permit for Village Cable Co. to build
cable television studios and a 150-foot telev ision
tower on Weaver Dairy Road north of town.
Heavner said Village will begin installing
cable in the north and will move southward. He
said he hoped the cable lines would reach
Franklin Street by June. But he said the
schedule depends on Southern Bell Telephone
Co. and Duke Power Co., which must prepare
their utility lines before cable can be installed.
Heavner said local programming would be
the last stage in completing the system and
probably would not begin immediately after the
system is installed. Village's studios are
expected to be completed by September.
Since Village received the franchise, the
company has considered adding more
programming to its package, he said. Village
plans to offer a 24-hour classical music station
and may offer some British Broadcasting Co.
programs, he said. Its movie channel will show
movies 24-hours a day, not 15 hours a day as
originally planned, he said.

WASHINGTON (AP) The Carter administration said
Wednesday the United States will officially boycott the Moscow
Olympics this summer and that U.S. Olympic Committee
officials and athletes are expected to follow suit.
As the deadline for an American boycott of the Moscow
Olympics passed Wednesday, U.S. Olympic officials reaffirmed
their intent to wait until April before making a final boycott
White House counsel Lloyd Cutler made it clear that the
committee, which oversees U.S. participation in the games, is
being relied on to abide by President Carter's decision.
In Bonn, West Germany, chief State Department spokesman
Hodding Carter announced the final decision as the deadline
arrived for the Soviet U nion to pull its troops out of Afghanistan.
"The United States set a deadline for its decision on whether to
participate, a decision to be contingent on the withdrawal of
Soviet troops," said Carter, accompanying Secretary of State
Cyrus R. Vance on a tour of European capitals.
"Today is the day on which that decision was going to be
based. It is clear there is no sign of a Soviet withdrawal. The
president , has made clear that our decision is therefore
irrevocable. We will not participate in the Olympics in Moscow,"
the spokesman said.
In Washington, State Department spokesman Thomas Reston
said the boycott decision is "firm and unalterable."
He said, "It is a position which is shared by more than 50
governments throughout the world and which will be reflected,
we are convinced, by the nonparticipation by at least that
number of national Olympic teams in Moscow."

UNC General Administration officials are
juggling their schedules in an attempt to plan
the University's budget and prepare for a court
The adjustment comes following U. S.
Administrative Law Judge Lewis Parker's
denial for a delay in a trial involving UNC and
the Department of Health, Education and
Welfare over desegregation. The trial date is set
for May 19.
"Although we have invested a lot in the
(HEW) case, our budget takes top priority,"
UNC President William Friday said
Wednesday. "It won't be easy, but we'll just
have to do two things at once."
The budget, which was adopted for the
biennium 1979-1981, allows for increases in
faculty salaries and modest adjustments in
energy funding. In addition to preparing the
budget changes for the N. C. General
Assembly's short session in June, Friday said
his staff is starting to make budget preparations
for the biennium 1981-1983.
Because the HEW dispute has dragged on,
with the stakes continuing to increase, some
UNC officials have had to devote their attention
to the case, leaving them less time to concentrate
on University matters.
Both UNC and HEW already have spent
large amounts of money on the case. University
officials estimate the price tag on their end has
reached $500,000, with no end in sight.
"I expect us to spend at least that amount
before this case finally draws to a close," Friday
said. "Right now our lawyers are handling most
of the work, but I'm still devoting 10 to 15
percent of my time to the matter."
At stake in the battle is $90 million in federal
aid the University receives annually. When
HEW threatened to stop payments last year, the
University went to court in an attempt to avert
the cutoff. The Washington-based law firm of
Charles Morgan was hired and is in the process
of taking depositions from 80 prospective
witnesses. Morgan works at a fee of $175 per
"I wish I could tell you we have a secret
strategy that is going to make HEW come
begging to us on their knees for our
forgiveness," said Senior Deputy Attorney
General Andrew Vanore, who is working with
Morgan on the case. "The fact is we just keep
plugging away getting ready for (the hearing in)
Vanore said depositions already have been
taken from approximately 10 of the 80
witnesses, with an average of five per week being

Franklin Street has long been a mccca of business
