Fans delighted despite
Tar Meet9 6-2 loss
By DAVID POOLE
James "Peanut" Parks stood behind the mound in the
top of the first inning of a baseball game in Boshamer Stadium
Thursday and rubbed up the baseball that the umpire had
just thrown to him.
There was a runner on first and one man out. Parks turned
back toward the plate and there, standing into the batter's
box, was Dave Winfield. He peeked over into the on deck
circle, and there stood Reggie Jackson.
"That's a strange feeling," Parks said. ,
Parks and his North Carolina baseball teammates, of
course, were not involved in just another college baseball
game. The Tar Heels were facing the New York Yankees, up
from spring training in Florida for an exhibition baseball
game which the Yankees won 6-2.
"It was just a great day," North Carolina coach Mike
Roberts said after his team had fallen to the defending
American League East champions. "This is the only game
in my coaching career I havver enjoysdibsing." -; -
Nearly 10,000 fans surrounded the baseball field and
enjoyed beautiful weather and a game that was ... well,
frankly, boring. Had the game itself been the day's only
attraction, the afternoon would have been a dud.
When we last left Parks, he was standing on the mound
preparing to face Winfield in the first inning. The Yankees'
big-money free agent lined a double to left and moved Joe
LeFebvre, who had walked, over the third.
Jackson, who didn't act at all like he was pleased to be in
Chapel Hill, then hit a sacrifice fly to right to drive home a
run. Winfield scored on an error by UNCs Mitch McCleney
on a grounder by Oscar Gamble and Gamble later scored
on a single by Graig Nettles. .
New York doubled its lead in the third on four singles,
another McCleney error and a wild pitch, with Nettles and

VioiouD of pointing town blue

From staff report
Only 300 UNC students were lucky enough
to get tickets to the NCAA tournament this
weekend but the entire campus is ready to
paint the town blue.
The fortunate 300 are decorating their cars
Carolina blue to show the crowds from here to
Philadelphia exactly who they are pulling for.
But those left behind look forward to the pan
demonium sure to break out in Chapel Hill with
no less excitement.
Frances Seymour, a senior attending the
game in Philadelphia, said she did not want to
miss the celebration in Chapel Hill. "I'm hop
ing to catch a flight back to Chapel Hill right
after the game is over. So I am hoping to get
back to Chapel Hill to celebrate here."
Jacky Jones, a sophomore going to the game,
said she expected Philadelphia to be wild if the
team won. "I'm so excited. 1 really leci tike
Carolina is going to win," she said. "There's
only 300 students going but I think we'll make
enough racket for three million."
Anne Morris, a sophomore, said she was
driving up and would decorate her car to show
everyone she was a Carolina fan. "I'm real
excited. It's just really exciting that it's hap
pening in my three years," she said.
Student Body President Scott Norberg, who
received a free ticket to the game, said, "I can .
hardly wait because we're going to beat Virginia
(in the semifinals) and then take the whole thing."
Harold Smith, a freshman who plans to attend
the game, said "I'm looking forward to going
to Philadelphia and seeing the Heels whup up
on Virginia and Indiana."
Several alumni said they expected the Carolina
basketball team to go all the way.

WARSAW, Poland Solidarity said Thursday it
would go ahead with a four-hour warning strike
today after the Polish government postponed crisis
talks with the independent labor federation.
The government said Thursday's scheduled talks
were postponed until Friday because both sides were
holding private consultations. However, it did not
inform Solidarity in advance, and the union decided
to go ahead with the planned warning walkout.
Panicky food shoppers formed the biggest lines in
memory 'as they tried to prepare for the warning strike
and a general strike Tuesday that the government
said could only be averted if Solidarity officials com
promised and curbed their lust for "holy war."
After 90 minutes of inconclusive talks Wednesday
with Solidarity leader Lech Walesa, the government's
chief negotiator. Deputy Premier Mieczyslaw
Rakowski, said elements of the union wanted "holy
war," and that, "without compromise, we shall sink
into chaos or even perhaps fratricidal fighting."
He said union agitation might "open a new, this
time really tragic period in the history of postwar
Poland," apparently a veiled warning that Soviet-led
Warsaw Pact forces currently on maneuvers might
have to step in to end nine months of sporadic labor
Solidarity wants the government to fire officials
responsible for the police beating of union activists in
Bydgoszcz last Thursday. One of the officials quit
Thursday and was replaced by a general, but Solida-
, rity wanted at least three more people dismissed, and
was demanding other concessions.
The man who resigned was Edward Berger, the
provincial council chairman in Bydgoszcz. He was

replaced by Gen. Franciszek Kaminski, commander
of the army's Bydgoszcz garrison and deputy com
mander of the Pomorski military region.
Solidarity's angry response to the reported police
brutality plunged Poland into its worst crisis since the
nationwide strike wave last summer, but despite his
words, Rakowski told Radio Warsaw he believed the
strikes the labor federation have called Friday and
next Tuesday could be averted.
Walesa had no immediate reaction to Rakowski's
warning. He emerged smiling from the meeting "with
him Wednesday and said the talks were adjourned
for the night to await the results of the government's
investigation of the incident in Bydgoszcz.
One of Solidarity's chapters in southwestern
Jelenia Gora, appealed to Pope John Paul II to help
solve the Polish crisis, and the Polish-born pontiff
was said to be watching the situation "hour by
The Soviet news agency Tass called the situation in
Poland extremely tense, and Warsaw Television
showed 25 minutes of film of the Warsaw Pact man
euvers. It was the longest segment since the exercises
began in Poland and surrounding countries last
week, and taken as another velied warning of possi
ble Soviet-led military intervention.
, The Kremlin report was the most extensive in five
days. It said Poland was "virtually flooded with pro
vocative leaflets containing direct threats against
communists," and that the Bydgoszcz incident was
being used to launch a "provocative campaign
against state and party bodies."
The Reagan administration said late Thursday the
Soviet Union may intend to intervene in Poland's
labor strife and President Ronald Reagan said the
situation was "very serious ... very tense."

LOS ANGELES Comedienne Carol Burnett
won a $1 .6 million libel judgment against the National
Enquirer on Thursday for a 1976 gossip item that
said she had a boisterous run-in with Henry ISrircr

William Masterson, an attorney for the tabloid
published in Lantana, Fla., vowed to appeal and
said he would move for a new trial as well.
"This verdict is an affront to the First Amendment
to the Constitution and it cannot stand," said Mas
terson. "This is almost the equivalent of capital
punishment against a corporation."
North Carolina libel experts agreed that the
decision reached Thursday would not threaten press
"I don't think it's going to establish any prece
dent," said UNC journalism professor John Adams.
"I don't know why we have to come up with the
First Amendment to protect that sort of garbage
it teems a Dtk ridiculous to me.- "' ' "'-'- '
"It might incline people to sue papers because
they may feel they have a chance to win," said UNC
journalism professor BUI Chamberlin. But, he said,
"Most journalists take more care with their stories
(than the National Enquirer)."
Burnett's attorney asked in closing arguments for
an award of $1.5 million,' the Enquirer s estimated
net profit for one year. '
The gossip item in question was a March 2, 1976,
report that she had engaged in rowdy behavior and
had a loud argument with then-Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger in a posh Washington restaurant.
She contended the item made it appear she was drunk.
Burnett obviously was stunned when jurors returned
with their verdict after 13 hours of deliberation. The
length of deliberation led to speculation about a hung
jury. . .
