Staff Writer UNC Chancellor Christopher Columbus Fordham III was installed formally as chancellor Sunday during 1930 University Day ceremonies. In his address, Fcrdham outlined five University traditions that he said he held especially important. Among these were the University's deep roots in the people of North Carolina, its commitment to freedom and scholarship, its societal leadership through the contributions of former students and its foundation of human spirit. "The complexities of the world and its knowledge base notwithstanding, it is vital that wc maintain and nurture the special spirit with which this institution has been imbued," Fordham said. "I find the student of today to be bright, competent and high-spirited. There is a perceptibl; tenor of serious purpose and light heart. The students of today are truly the hope of our society. I believe in them and am optimistic because of them," he said. Distinguished alumnus awards also were presented during University Day ceremonies to five alumni who have made outstanding accomplishments v in their fields. An unedited text of Chcncctlor Fordham's remarks et hl3 -installation will appear Tussday in The Daily Tar Heel. The 1930 recients of the award were Paul A. Johnson, a Chapel Hill business executive; Guy Owen Jr., a writer and English professor-at North Carolina State University; Julia Cherry Spruill, author and historian; C. Vann Woodward, historian and professor emeritus at Yale University; and Edwin M. Yoder Jr., editorial page editor of the Washington Star. Following the awards presentation N.C. Gov. James B. Hunt Jr., commended Fordham as being uniquely suited to meet the challenges of the University and the state. . In his speech, Hunt also cited education of young people from all levels of society as the primary concern of the University. "You can walk across the campus of this University and sense the strength that infuses it," Hunt said. "But there are problems and challenges that lie here. This University has met many of these challenges and overcome many of these problems in Its history. I feel confident that it. will meet future problems and challenges with the same manner and spirit that have marked its past."

Not since the 1943 season had Carolina won its first five games. . So much for history. Sophomore quarterback Rod Elkins threw two touchdown p s and Amos Lawrence and Kelvin Dryant each added scores as the Tar Heels crushed the Deacons 27-9 before 37,411 fans the hrg:st crowd to ever sec a game in Groves Stadium. The win by the eighth-ranked Tar Heels was especially sweet, not only because it gave Carolina a 2-0 mark in Atlantic Coast Conference play to go with its 5-0 overall record, but also because it brought some measure of revenge. Last season, the Tar Heels were 4-0 before the losing to the Deacons 24-19 in Chapel Hill. "We cave up some big plays against them last year," Carolina safety Steve Streater said. "We really got after them today." The UNC d:fcn:e turned in another good performance as it held Wake to only 45 yards net rushing and kept Jay Venuto, the Deacs' prolific passer, under pressure sll afternoon. Venuto completed 19-of-34 passes for 222 yards, but he spent much of the day evading a strong Carolina pass rush th;t kept him from having a mere productive day. "We emphasized the pass rush this week," Carolina cccch Dick Crurn said. "Our players played hard because they have respect for Venuto; they realize what he is capible of The fiction b::zn slowly and, unless they preferred to watch a puniir.g exhibition, most fans could have spent the first quarter across the street it the Dixie Classic Fair tnd r.ot have mi-edato!.

Three plays later, Elkins, who was lI-of-21 for 148 yards, threw a .perfect pass to Delbert Powell for a 16-yard touchdown. Hayes kick made it 14-3 at the half. The next Carolina scoring threat came in the third period and produced the game's most confusing interlude. . After Greg Poole had returned a David Couch punt 25 yards to the Wake 16, Carolina apparently scored its third touchdown on a pass back across the field from Elkins to Jon Richardson. But, as the Tar Heels lined up to kick the extra point, the officials threw a flag. After several minutes of confusion, the touchdown was nullified and Carolina was penalized 5 yards for illegal motion. "North Carolina had a man in motion on that play and the quarterback went into the motion before the snap," referee Robert Carpenter explained after the game. "The reason it takes a while to make that ruling is that the two officials were watching those two players and they have to Sea HEELS on psgs 5 1 .. - f ,- r . , ',1 i Or- tru A t ' y : .'::f r e I ; k? q-:;:!y vhen, on the fi.t ff, VAv. v v: 1 " Ih I! rry Ct2r.lZA C ') puts rirJi cn ...Jay Venuto (14) cj-ts eff p ::s Funds for private schools IB) CD a. o ti H Dy ANGIE DORM AN Staff Writer A refusal Friday by the UNC Board of Governors to endorse a 50 percent increase in state aid to North Carolina's private school students drew strong opposition from former governor and board member Jim Holshouser. "We're stonewalling and not addressing the issue," Holshouser told the board at its monthly meeting. "We're going to see some private schools fold up "without more aid. We're net being' the kind of,asressiYC board.. the-V..-. .-expects." .--' ' :;";"y;"r The North Carolina Association of Independent Colleges and Universities requested Friday that the board recommend to , the N.C. General Assembly an increase in state funds that would more than double the aid students attending private institutions received for 1979-1931. The association requested that: The amount of aid for private school students be 50 percent of the aid to the state's 16 public schools within five years. The amount of . aid provided to independent college students in 1981-1982 should be 30 percent of the money appropriated per student in the UNC system for the previous fiscal' year. For the second year of the biennium, the percentage would increase to 35 percent of the budgeted per student appropriation. The average grant to each independent college student through two aid programs should be increased over the current amount by $200 in 1981-82 and another $250 Ln 19S2-1983. North Carolina Legislative Tuition .Grants, given to N.C. residents attending in-state-privciw i.iiulons, wotldincreasc from"' $550 in 1980-1931 to $750 the first year and $1,000 the second year of the biennium. In a drafted response to the request the board said, "The request from the association contains no compelling arguments and no clearly demonstrable needs for the requested state appropriations for the tuition grant over the next biennium.". Former state Senator John Henley, ' president of the N.C. Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, appealed to the broad to reconsider its action. "No one sector should have prior claim on the legislature's generosity," Henley told the board referring to the state's public school system. In other action, the board approved a proposed two-year $1.7 billion budget for the UNC 16-campus system. After review by the state Advisory Budget Commission, the budget will be considered by the 1981 N.C. General Assembly. The budget's projected enrollment figures for N.C. State University sparked criticism from board member Jacob H. Froelich Jr. of High Point;-.-'. " " - - Froelich said students should not be admitted to the system's campuses unless there was adequate housing for them. N.C. State Chancellor Joab L. Thomas said the school was over-enrolled this fall, with a record 21,225 students. The budget proposal showed that funds to cover a full-time equivalent enrollment of 15,850 students were set aside for N.C. State this year. But the school's full-time enrollment already exceeds the figure projected for 1982-1983. cue teams? s upp Tf senz J John Esst Robert Morgan t stave Dy JONATHAN RICH Suit Writer Throughout the nation Democratic congressmen are under attack from aggressive, well-financed Republican opponents.

United Nations officials said the massive relief effort was so vast that Algeria was having trouble coordinating it. "This is a standard problem, particularly in earthquakes," said a duty officer of the United Nations Disaster Relief Office. "So this is not a problem particular to Algeria." The relief includes airlifts of medical personnel and equipment, tents, cots, milk powder, water purification units, canned food and even a team of rescue dogs, she said. Ludovic Van Esiche, the U.N. agency's chief for Africa, Europe and the Middle East, raid that coordinating relief after disasters often was hampered by transportation and distribution difficulties and by duplication of emergency s. "The other problem that crops up is that supplies sometimes are unusable," he said. "Either the instructions are in another language or the supplies are simply inappropriate." The U.S. military commands in West Germany and Italy said they airlifted a team of 50 medical, engineering and communications personnel Sunday aboard C-I4I transports to survey the needs of the stricken area, where ts many as 20,(X people were feared killed by the quake. Officials said rescuers hid found the bodies of 1 ,500 people who died in the earthquake. At least 900 survivors had been taken to hospitals, the officials Slid. The body count was the first official figure in the quake, the second to hit the town in 25 years. More than 1,600 people died in 1954 when large areas cf the town were destroyed. In Washington, a State Department spokesman said the United States had contributed ta estimated $1 rnilhon worth of relief iupplies, includes thr.Uts, tents and cots from American stockpiles in Italy.
