It seems to be a painful curse of
North Carolina basketball to come, up
just short of a national championship.
This was never more apparent than last
season you can't get much closer
than the NCAA finals.
But before that, there were the teams
in 1967, 1968, 1969, 1972 and 1977 than
went as far as the NCAA final four.
The leaders of those teams Phil
Ford, Walter Davis, Bobby Jones, Al
Wood and Charlie Scott were at the
Pro-Alumni game Saturday at Car
And another star of recent years,
Dudley Bradley, led the Blue team with
32 points to win that game 95-91 over
the White. Davis added 28.
But also at Carmichael on Saturday
were the only players in the history of
Carolina basketball who can say they
played on an NCAA championship,
team Lennie Rosenbluth, Joe Quigg,
Pete Brennan and Lee Shaffer, ineligible
because he was a freshman.
In their year, 1957, all the magic,
talent and luck came together. The
Heels won 32 , straight games and
claimed the national title, defeating
Kansas, led by Wilt Chamberlain, by
one point in three overtimes.
What did the 1957 team have that
made it so special? The players all have
slightly different ideas about their suc
cess but they all agree on one thing
they were a group of talented players
who had confidence in each other.
In the NCAA finals, the Tar Heels
were heavy underdogs because of
Chamberlain and the fact that the game
was played on Kansas' home court. The
Heels won the game in the last second
on Quigg's two free throws.
"There were about 10,000 people
there and only 1,000 Carolina fans,"
Rosenbluth said. "Those few must have
been in a corner somewhere because we
sure couldn't hear very many people
cheering for us. I'll never forget the
hush that fell in that coliseum when they x
lost. I've never seen a place empty so

Marijuana vessels, fie on the increase in N.C.
By JANE FOY
DTH Staff Writer V ;
The past summer has seen an increase of ves-. .
sels seized off the N.C. coast carrying drugs,
said state officials recently, and at the same time
many counties have been plagued by the sudden
appearance of large fields of marijuana:
In an attempt to explain the increase in drug
trafficking and production in the state, Assistant
Secretary for Crime Control and Public Safety
Robert A. Melott said it was North Carolina's
location and geography that made a flourishing
drug trade viable.
"The smuggling is a problem everywhere in
the United States. It is the most severe in Florida,
less in South Carolina, and then slightly less in
North Carolina," said Commander Robert
Bastek, Chief of the Intelligence and Law En
forcement division of the U.S. Coast Guard,
which is responsible for rnonitoring the coast
for offshore drug smugglers.
Marijuana and drugs are coming up from
Columbia to the state, Bastek said. "Both rou
tine random patrols and intelligence informa
tion have been used to increase the number of
vessels seized this summer," he said.
It is unclear whether organized crime is in
volved, but it would be "difficult for an indivi-
dual to arrange to load twenty tons of mari
juana on a fishing vessel in Columbia, transport
it, distribute" iL and finance the operation,"
Bastek said. "It would require a multinational
company." V; .
Once the marijuana is seized, enough is kept
for evidence and the rest is destroyed, Melott
Said. - . ".'
The drug problem has spread to many coun
ties throughout the state, where some farmers
seem to feel more profit can be made in mari
juana than in soybeans.
However, neighbors sometimes have reported
the illegal crops to local authorities.
"This has been an extremely good growing
season with plenty of rain," said a deputy in
Cabarrus County, where several large crops
have been found this summer. "The plants have
gotten so big that more people have noticed and
have been willing to call in," he said.
Large crops Of marijuana " have been dis
covered and confiscated this summer in Wilkes,
Catawba, Cateret, New Hanover, Brunswick
and Cleveland counties, as well as in several
other areas around the state.
"It seems like everybody has it," said Deputy
Arnold Simmons of the Dare County Sheriffs
Department. Being on the coast, Dare County
. has been a target area for drug smuggling. "Our
biggest problem is that people don't want to get
involved (in reporting lawbreakers)," Simmons
said.'- : ' . ' " .
According to Chapel Hill Chief of Police
Herman Stone, there have been no increase in
arrests for possession of marijuana, nor have
any fields of the weed been sighted growing in
the area. '
One factor many state officials seem to think
may have an influence on the problem is the re
cent drug paraphernalia law passed this sum
mer, but they admit the influence would be hard
to gauge. ' ;
The law is not aimed at the drug traffic,"
Melott said, but rather at the culture that has
grown up with the drug trade. "It only makes it
. clear to society, especially to the younger mem
bers of society, that the use of controlled sub
stances is not looked on with favor," he said.
, New legislation aimed specifically at drug
trafficking, however, was passed in September
1980. "This new legislation makes possession of
large amounts of marijuana on the seas in U.S.
boats a more severe crime," Bastek said.
Marijuana that comes in on the coast may
end up halfway across the country, Bastek said.
"Like everything else, it will go wherever there
is a profit to be made." .

New state law bans such drug paraphernalia
...officials say law will help curb drug abuse
New state law
By DEAN LOWMAN
DTH Staff Writer
A new state law passed this summer banning the
sale or possession of drug-related paraphernalia has
drawn criticism from state and local merchants who
sell smoking accessories, but state law enforcement
officials say the law will go a long way toward curb-.
ing drug abuse.
George Hoffman, owner of George's Cheep Joint
on Franklin Street, said arbitrary arrests could take
away a person's right to "enjoy the fruits of his
labor" and could constitute restraint of trade, even
though the merchant is complying with the law.
The law, which takes effect on Oct. 1 , outlaws the
sale, possession or advertisement of implements com
monly associated with drug use.
Among the items that would be outlawed are pipes,
bongs, roach clips, cocaine spoons and kits designed
to enhance the potency of marijuana or cocaine.
While it doesn't specifically outlaw roiling papers,
it covers any item that was designed or sold with the
intent of aiding the ingestion of any illegal substance.
Law enforcement officials say the law was designed
to shut down stores that deal in drug-related mer-
apkemsilia: dia w ciiticigm
chandise, commonly called "head shops," while
leaving other legitimate businesses, such as conve
nience stores stocking rolling papers or similar items,
This distinction, Hoffman said, is the biggest pro
blem with the law. -
- "If a merchant happens to be selling rolling papers
and, for some reason, doesn't get along with the local
police," Hoffman said, "then the cops could come
in and arbitrarily arrest him for not complying with
Bill Leakes, chief counsel for the Drug Enforce
ment Administration in Washington, said the North
Carolina act, patterned after a DEA model act, pro
bably would hold up in court. "::
"Eight or nine states out of the 23 that have passed
bills similar to the DEA act have had the constitu
tionality of their laws tested in court," Leakes said.
''For the most part,' all the courts have found the
laws to be constitutional with the exception of the
Ohio law. It was remanded back by the 8th Circuit
Court of Appeals for further study," he said.
Local enforcement of the law will be strict, accor
ding to Chapel Hill Police Chief Herman Stone. ,
"We plan to enforce it as the law so directs us to,"
Stone said. " I've yet to study the law closely but I
plan to do it soon. Then, I'll direct my men how to
Mike Carpenter, state Justice Department attorney
for the State Bureau of Investigation, said he believed
the law was written so that local officials would
choose to prosecute only their strongest cases.
"The impact of the law is that it will persuade
businesses to drop questionable items," Carpenter
said. "I think the businesses are going to have to
evaluate whether that is the kind of thing they want
to continue to merchandise.".
The law passed in June by the General Assembly at
"the urging of Gov. Jim Hunt, who vowed to use the
law to put every "head shop" in North Carolina out
Carpenter said he thought the governor's position
was that "it was sort of a hypocrisy for the state to
make possession of illegal substances against the law
while allowing the sale of paraphernalia in virtually
any store on the street."
North Carolina's law has one major anomaly, ac
cording to Robert Malott, assistant state Crime Con
The new law's penalties are tougher than those for
possession of small amounts of marijuana. It makes
possession of paraphernalia a misdemeanor carrying
a maximum $500 fine and one year in prison; selling it
carries a $1 ,000 fine and two years in jail as the max
imum penalty. ' V
Possession of less than one ounce of marijuana in
the state, by contrast, is punishable by. a $100, fine .
and no jail term. - .
The law makes it illegal to advertise paraphernalia
in newspapers or other printed media. And it makes
it a felony for an adult to sell paraphernalia to a
"If anyone under 18 comes in here and wants to
buy something," Hoffman said, "I tell them to go
and get their parents to come by my shop and tell me
it's all right before I'll sell anything to them.
"I don't believe minors should be using any drugs,
legal or illegal, and that they have no need for smok
ing accessories," Hoffman said..
Hoffman sells a variety of pipes, bongs, incense
and herbs in his Franklin Street shop.
"All the products I sell can be used legally and, 1
suppose, illegally. However, if anyone mentions they
are planning to use an item illegally, 1 will not sell
anything to them," Hoffman said.
Iran has been rocked by political vio
lence since the .June ouster of moderate
President Abolhassan Bani-Sadr.
On June 28, an explosion at the ruling
Islamic Revolutionary Party headquarters
in Tehran killed more than 70 political
leaders, including Ayatollah Mohammad
Beheshti, considered the second-most
powerful figure in Iran after revolutionary
patriarch Ayatollah Rnhollah Khomeini.
Rajai, who had been prime minister of
the revolutionary regime, was elected
without serious opposition to succeed
Bani-Sadr fn July. Bahonar then was ap
pointed to fill the vacant post of prime
minister. Tehran Radio said the Iranian
Cabinet was called into an extraordinary
session at sundown by Rafsanjani to dis
cuss ''important matters of state, in
cluding the explosion at the prime minis
ter's office." 1
Pars said ambulances rushed to the
prime ministry to carry the victims of the
explosion to hospitals. It said a helicopter
also was called into service to help trans
port the injured. The news agency quoted
Iran's health minister, Dr. Hani Manafi,
as saying all the injured were in satisfac
tory condition. The clergy-led regime has
arrested thousands of leftists and executed
more than 470 counterrevolutionaries
since the end of June.
Bani-Sadr and top underground oppo
sition leader Massoud Rajavi, who heads
the underground Islamic-Marxist
Mujahedeen Khalq organization, escaped
.from Tehran aboard an Iranian air force
plane to Paris on July 29. Both were
granted asylum by France. They have
been predicting that Khomeini's regime
would not last more than a few months,

revolution should, and would, continue
its march" despite "unpleasant events,
which we are always ready for."

An error that forced many Scott
Residence College residents to take S-4
parking permits instead of S-5 stickers
has been largely corrected, Student
Government President Scott Norberg
"We received a list of 30 names ofstu
dents who had S-4 permits from SRC
Governor Melissa Morgan," he said. "Of
those 30, we've been able to help 25
students get S-5 permits."
The traffic office has agree to hold any
S-5 permits unclaimed by Friday for SRC
residents who were given the wrong per
mits. Normally, these permits would go
on sale along with other unclaimed per
mits. There are still about 40 spaces
unclaimed, Norberg said.
The S-5 permits will be turned over to
Student Government to decide who needs
them. "We've asked that the SRC-governor
report to Student Government those
names of students with S-4 permits,"
The S-5 permits will be turned over to

nor report to Student Government those
names of students with S-4 permits,"
Norberg said. "When we get the permits,
we'll be ready to trade."
More than 70 Scott College residents
were denied parking spaces in the S-5
parking lot because of an error by the
UNC traffice office, Norberg said. "The
traffic office did not follow the Campus
Governing Council laws when they dis
bursed the permits. Many SRC residents
had to park in the S-4 lots, which are far
ther away." .
Norberg had originally blamed the exe
cutive branch of Student Government for
the foul-up. "I was assuming that we told
the traffic office about the hew parking
lot apportionments, but in fact, they
made the changes without consulting
anyone," he said.
The problem occurred when commuter
parking spaces in the N-4 and N-4A lots
were shifted to the S-5 areas along
Stadium Drive and in Ram's Head park
During the past two years, half the
spaces in the N-4 and N-4A lots were re
