Samm-Art Williams, a tall, easy-going and friendly
man, is North Carolina's most successful playwright
since Paul Green. Williams, a native cf Durgaw, N.C.t
is the author of Heme, which was nominated for the
1SC0 Tony Award for best play. . .
Williams left Burgaw in 1553 to study at Morgan
State University in Baltimore, Maryknd. In 1957 he
started playwriting and the following year he moved to
Philadelphia where he lived until he became affiliated
with the Negro Ensemble Company in 1973.
Home, William's tenth play, brought him fame. It is
semi-autobiographical, the history of a North Carolina
native who grows up on a farm and loses it when he's
thrown into prison for refusing to go to Vietnam. After
he is released, Cephus Miles, the Carolina native,
"It's a very simple plot that deals with the displaced,"
Williams said about Home in a recent interview. "The
play started as a poem about people at Christmas time
going home on the bus."
But it soon evolved into a play that Douglas Turner
Ward, director of the Negro Ensemble Company, decid
ed to produce off-Broadway in 1979. The play received
enthusiastic reviews and soon moved to Broadway for a
Mel Gussow, drama critic for The New York Times,
said that Home "is a love letter to the land, to fanning as
a way of life, to the farmer as a figure of some nobility.
... He (Williams) seems to have a tympanic tip to his
pen; one can keep time to the rolling cascade of langu
age, as in "catfish stew, corn fritters, potato pone, fresh
, Williams is also a successful actor. He has appeared in
a number of plays, among them the Negro Ensemble
Company productions of First Breeze of Summer, No
where to Run, Liberty Call, and Everyman. He has done
some film work, appearing in Dressed To Kill and the
upcoming Ragtime. And Williams has appeared in a
number of commercials for such varied products as Old
Milwaukee beer, Uniroyal Tires and Dr. Pepper.
"Williams said he prefers writing to acting. "All play
wrights should get a feel for acting. Eventually they do
go hand-in-hand," he said.
"I'm glad playwriting is fun. I find it immensely gra-'
tifying to see characters come to life before your eyes as
opposed to a novel where you never get to see people

Chapel Hill town government officials and merchants are
preparing for the pandemonium that will almost certainly
break out this weekend and Monday even if the UNC bas
ketball team does not win the NCAA championship.
Celebrations followed the team's national championship
in 1957 and near-championship in 1977. This year promises
to be no different.
"I will for certain be stocking up (on beer)," said Jim
Caye of Party Beverage Company. "An awful lot get drunk
when we win a bis game. Pecpb get charged up. And that's
everybody, not just students.", '
But UNC Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Donald
Eoulton did not have the news that students wanted to hear.
"There is no way that classes will be cancelled if we win
the (championship) game," Eoulton said. "Our academic
schedule is set in stone as a necessity for accreditation. Even
when there's practically a natural disaster you can be sure

"One possible repercussion of winning the (title) game is
that we may have to buy extra cases of toilet paper for dec
orating the trees," Eoulton said. "Classes will still go on, but
we can all still have fun."
When UNC won the 1957 championship by defeating the
University of Kansas in three overtimes, a festive after-the-game
celebration on Franklin Street followed.
The Saturday night was marked by an auto accident, three
arrests, a huge bonfire and dancing in the streets. Franklin
Street was crowded with students and townspeople within
minutes of the conclusion of the game.
One student climbed atop the post office corner stoplight,
at the intersection of Franklin and Henderson streets, to lead
the cheering crowd. Traffic on Franklin Street was held up
for 20 minutes by the crowd. Cars were backed up for two
With that in mind, the Chapel Hill Police Department is
making plans for this year.
"We're making elaborate plans for establishing crowd
control depending on what exactly takes place," Police Chief
Herman Stone said. "Our plans are flexible. This weekend
we will increase our manpower and will attempt to take care
of things as they shift from location to location.
"We'll have to sec.what occurs, and if necessary put our

bably be a lot of celebrating this year win or lose."
"We already have a few keg orders for 10 and 11 o'clock
in the morning," Henderson said. "People want to be pre
pared regardless of what time the game begins."
"We will have extra beer in our produce cooler and extra
stock in the back room for the weekend," said Richard Davis
of Fowler's Food Store. "We had a tremendous sale of beer
and wine the past weekend. Our keg business will be especially
good if the weather is nice and if we win Saturday."

mono patients will have ihebe symptoms,
but they vary from person to person.
"Over two-thirds of the cases don't
have any symptoms," said Dr. James
McCutchan, head of the clinical medical
section of the Student Health Service.
"Two people for every one who does
know he has mono, have it but don't
know it. So, there is no reason to put
one person in isolation. It does not help
to isolate people."
McCutchan explained that the people
who do not know they have mono are
asymptomatic cases. These people go
normally about their daily routines w ith
out realizing they have mono because it
does not affect them. Those who have
asymptomatic cases, however, are just as
contagious as the symptomatic cases.
Although many students correlate cci-
lege work and mono, "Going to school
daes net make mono worse," McCutchan.
said, "it will make you weaker, but it
will not male you sicker. The outcome
cf c-r.e's grades is net directly related to
mono but on the student and whether he
stays caught up."
If patients exhibit physical symptoms
of .mono, then an analysis of blood is
run for the mono spot test. If there are a

BYDGOSZCZ, Poland Solidarity called Tuesday for na

said the union's appeal "cannot be interpreted otherwise than
a call for self-annihilation."
Solidarity said the strikes a two-hour warning strike Fri

activists in Bydgoszcz last week.
Kania, in a speech broadcast by Warsaw radio, responded
that Poland's "most dangerous economic crisis ... is coinciding
with a deep political crisis."
"How can one call for strikes in this situation?" he asked.
"Who has the courage to make out of a local incident a national
cause threatening catastrophe?" .
Warsaw television quoted a Solidarity report as saying the
general stike would be "a sit-in and will begin with the first

Poland "has shown that she is capable of facing her internal

manner and without outside interference. It is also in the interest
of stability in Europe."
' Warsaw television and radio have been carrying reports of the
military maneuvers that have included amphibious assaults by
Soviet, Polish and East German troops on Poland's northwest
Pomeranian coast and a paratroop drop and mock combat in
the Warsaw military district.
While the maneuvers have increased apprehension in Poland
and the West, U.S. officials have noted that such exercises by
the Warsaw Pact alliance are normal for this time of year.
The Polish news agency PAP said Tuesday that about 12 per
cent of the army reservists scheduled to join in the maneuvers
were "released from taking part since their presence on the
farms was regarded as essential.' That would involve several

If one word could describe Nick Manos it would be energy.
Constantly devoting himself to several campus organizations, he
manages to offer a smile to everyone he comes in contact with.
Manos, a senoir history major from Atlanta, is most often
seen near the Union Activities Board in the Carolina Union. He
has served as the Performing Arts Committee Chairman since
1979 and speaks enthusiastically of his position. He said his love
for the arts was fostered early as his father was a theatrical pro
ducer and his mother a former ballerina.
He is a devoted brother of the Chi Psi fraternity, a Morchead
Scholar and a member of the International Soccer Club. He has
served as a Teaching Assistant in a scuba diving class and parti
cipated in the Campus Y Big Buddy Program. Working hard to
budget his schedule, he also has excelled academically as a parti
cipant in the honors program, f requently making the Dean's List.
As his most recent achievement, Manos was awarded an Inde
pendent Study Grant from the Chi Psi Educational Trust to help
finance a trip he made in October to study the Los Angeles riots
"The whole idea behind the trust was to make funds available
to active brothers to finance projects for furthering their educa
tion," he said in a recent interview.
The projects must be independent studies not connected with
a particular class; grant recipients are required to submit to the
Trust a report summarizing the results of their work, he said.
'There's a maximum of $700 available for travel expenses,
he said, adding that he received $350, which covered his plane
fare. The Trust has a limited budget at this time so the available
funds are being spread out in an attempt to assist more brothers.
Jadaaos traveled to Los Angeles to use sources of information
ca the riots not available on the Last
Coast. He said he would use the
Information in April for an honors
paper on the riots.
Manos had exhausted the sources of
data in this area when he did a project
for a history class last spring. "Most of
the research 1 went out for was
supplemental research. '
"When I decided to turn the report I

tigated other sources. He spoke with Harold Horowitz, a mem
