( u lb ID A Bryant leads Carolina to 56-0. win over ECU with oiii touchdowns By CLIFTON BARNES DTH Sports Editor The KGB put an end to the Pirates. Kelvin Gazelle Bryant. Fleet -of-foot Bryant galloped for 211 yards and pranced in the end zone six times to lead North Carolina's Tar Heels to a 56-0 rout of the East Carolina University Pirates Saturday afternoon in Kenan Stadium. Bryant's 211 yards on only 19 carries was an opening-day UNC rushing record, while his six touchdowns eclipsed the UNC and Atlantic Coast Conference record by Don McCauley set in 1970. "I played pretty good," the junior tailback said. "Trie offen sive line did a good job opening holes, and Alan Burrus (fullback) complements me real well." Bryant said he feels he is even quicker than he was last year, when he rushed for more than 1,000 yards while sharing time with Amos Lawrence. "He's quick," UNC guard Dave Drechsler said after the game. "He makes it easier on us. You can miss a block, and he'll still get lots of yardage.1 "He's usually by me before I can block anyway," he said with a smile. "I'm just glad he's on my side." Bryant is glad quarterback Rod Elkins is on his side. "Our passing attack helps me alot," he said. "They don't know what we're going to do run or pass." Bryant and Elkins combined for almost 300 yards offense in the first half. Elkins, who threw only once in the second half before leaving the game in the third quarter, went 9-for-17 and passed for 140 yards in the half. Bryant ran for 156 yards to help the Tar Heels to a 35-0 halftime lead. The Tar Heels were stymied on the first two possessions, and it looked for a while as though there might be a defensive struggle. "It got me down a little bit," Elkins said. "We were all down at the time, but I knew we'd pick it up." They did. Two crucial plays highlighted an 82-yard scoring drive that opened the floodgate. Elkins passed for 12 yards to Burrus, with a 15-yard roughing penalty tacked on to bring the ball all the way to midfield. , Then Bryant busted up the middle for 18 yards before he" fumbled. Tightend Doug Sickels picked up the ball and drove to the ECU 1-yard line. Bryant went over from there. See GAME on page 4 . n 'r.-. - S V- r s . if ft ' . ;. v.. -m. . , '?

Calling the story a profound disappointment, UNC President Willliam C. Friday said Sunday that he would file a formal protest with CBS-TV for its presentation of the UNC desegregation dispute on its program "Sunday Morning." . The story, which also was criticized by other UNC of ficials, showed the Chapel Hill and North Carolina Cen tral University campuses juxtaposed with footage of whites protesting integration during the 1960s. - Friday said that when the CBS crew was on campus Tuesday morning through Thursday evening that he was told the story would be about desegregation changes. "It was supposed to be a discussion as to what had happened" with desegregation in the state, he said. ' "It didn't turn out to be what they told us. it would be," he said. "I was profoundly disappointed." Friday said the 12-minute story treated the UNC desegregation case inadequately. He said that himself, NCCU Chancellor Albert Whiting and other UNC officials were interviewed, but that Friday was the only UNC official shown during the story. 'We spent hours with these people," Friday said. The University presented statistics, reports and other docu ments about desegregation to the CBS crew, but "riot one word of this" was used in the story, he said. He said he was dissatisfied that the broadcast related primarily to the ChapeJ Hill campus and that CBS did not do a better job. . Friday specifically called film footage of former Ala bama Gov. George Wallace trying to block court-ordered integration irrelevant to the UNC case. ;. Phone calls from interested citizens," UNC attorneys and the press kept him busy all day Sunday, he said. Reaction to the CBS story from other UNC officials and student leaders was mixed. Harold Wallace, UNC assistant vice chancellor for student affairs said the story was poorly researched and did not address all the issues. "They (CBS) should have stayed longer and done more research," he said. "They compared NCCU and Chapel Hill, saying the two schools are basically similar, which isn't true,'' he said. ' Hayden Renwick, associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, said CBS did not go into sufficient depth. Asked if the program presented the UNC system fairly, Renwick said, "1 don't think it presented anything at all. I don't know why they came down." But Black Student Movement Chairperson Mark Canady said the program portrayed the situation fairly. "It didn't pass judgement. They presented the facts as they would appear to an" outsider, he said. Canady praised the flashback scenes dealing with 1960s racial disturbances and Gov. Wallace, saying the show provided an "excellent historical context" and that the footage "showed that history is cyclic. Events repeat themselves." . . r'-' ' -r':,v :; ; UNC Student Body President Scott Norberg said the show was interesting and informative. "It looked at stu dent concerns,-how people who go to class each day feel about the changes in higher education. At a time when President Reagan is pulling back on civil rights, it is helpful to point out the concerns of young people." liH iglh.it ore ooo With training, department officials say By JOHN CONWAY DTH SUff Writer When fire-engine sirens wail , through the streets of Chapel Hill or Carrboro, chances are their destination is not a ma jor emergency. But there is methodology for the large and small calls that fire de partments handle. New employees of the Chapel Hill Pub lic Safety Department must participate in a comprehensive' training program con sisting of three areas: firefighting, emergency-medical-technician training, and law-enforcement training. Firemen are educated in all areas of public safety. R.B. Williams, assistant chief of the. Chapel Hill Fire Department, serves as di rector of firefighting training. Eleven in structors, certified by the Community College of North Carolina, are regular department employees. Subject areas covered in firefighter training include fire behavior, ventilation, ropes and knots, protective breathing ap paratus, search and rescue, salvage and overhaul, ladders, hoses, forcible entry, fire prevention, hazardous materials, sprinklers, strutural burning and standard operating procedure. Robert Swiger, chief of the Carrboro Fire Department, said the type of fire dic tated the procedures a firefighter. should follow. Classifications of fires range from small brush and auto fires to single-family dwellings to large business-district fires. Upon arriving at the scene of a fire, the responsibility of the officer in charge of the truck responding is to investigate the progress of the fire, suppress and con fine it. ; ' .. . If the fire is limited to a single room or area, firemen enter from an adjacent room and drive the fire away from un damaged sections. A 114-inch diameter hose is used in the majority of single family house fires, while the i'i-inch line is used in most businesses and fully involved structures. Positioning of men and equipment de pends upon the system of the individual fire company. Chief Swiger said the Carr boro Fire Department plans to implement a pre-planning sector system after January -1, 1982. v That system divides the fire scene into "six sectors,' plus one waiting area. Sector one establishes fire ground command. From that, equipment and men can be summoned to an area of need. Sector two handles the inside suppression of the blaze. The first arriving firemen are stationed in that sector to quickly contain the fire. The sides of the structure are' covered by firemen in sectors three, four and five. Firefighters in zone six ventilate the fire.' Sector seven is the staging and waiting area. "Rescue is our primary objective," Swiger said. "We teach the men how to look for occupants in smoke-filled rooms and in larger structures, such as motels." Thomas Roberts, firefighter trainer in Carrboro, szid "Ventilation is one of the most important parts of firefighting. "The two basic forms of ventilation are vertical and horizontal," he said.

Reagan's decision will mean that anti cipated Pentagon spending in fiscal 19S2 through 1984 will be $652.3 billion. , The president's decision, made in light of predictions of a burgeoning federal deficit next year, was disclosed by his chief spokesman, David R. Gergen, several hours after it was conveyed to Defense Secretary Caspar W. Weinberger and Budget Director David Stockman. " After signing this directive at Camp David this afternoon, the president re emphasized that his decision reflected his continuing commitment to two major goals of his administration: a strong eco nomy and a strong national defense," Gergen said, reading a prepared state ment. : "These changes in the defense budget are, of course, the first reductions on plans previously announced by the presi dent to identify savings in overall spending that will help to bring the federal budget into balance in 1984 and in the process achieve economic recovery," Gergen said. Gergen made public Reagan's memo randum to Weinberger and Stockman, in which he said fiscal 1982 defense spending would be $181.8 billion; fiscal 1983 would be $214.9 billion, and fiscal 1984, $242.6 billion. These figures represent reductions of $2 billion during the first year, $5 billion in the second and $6 billion in the third. "I appreciate the spirit in which you have reached this agreement, and firmly believe that we have struck the balance necessary to assure both an increasingly strong defense and the economic health . on which L defense jand well-being depend,", Reagan wrote to the two aides who had differed sharply on the size of defense budget reductions. The president, fortified by briefing books prepared by Stockman, spent Saturday at Camp David. Deputy White House press secretary Larry Speakes said Reagan was finished hearing arguments about the shape of the 1982 budget, as well as ' targets for spending in 1983 and 1984. With Reagan at Camp David, the pre sidential retreat in the Catoctin Moun tains of Maryland, were James A. Baker III, White Houses-chief of staff, and Michael K. Deaver, deputy chief of staff. Reagan is faced with several dilemmas as the time of year approaches when presidents usually become directly in volved in budget preparations. Although the proposed budget for fis cal 1982, which begins Oct. I, was sub mitted to Congress in stages last winter and spring, new economic forecasts have indicated that without more spending cuts, the deficit would be well above the $42.5 billion predicted by the administra tion. The Congressional Budget Office has estimated the deficit will be $65 billion. In addition, the worsening economic outlook could threaten Reagan's chances of fulfilling his promise to achieve a ba lanced federal budget in fiscal 1984, while increasing defense spending by 7 percent a year beyond inflation. "There seems to be up there (on Capi tol Hill) a real desire to cut deeply," Speakes said. "There is a real sentiment for budget cuts." He said he had heard that some mem bers of Congress were discussing cutting so-called entitlement programs, or those, such as Social Security, for which spend ing was ordered by law. Speakes said those cuts were not anti cipated in 1982, although some such cuts in food stamp programs, for example are already part of the 1982 budget plans. 4? He also said he did not expect any ef fort to raise revenue through increases in excise taxes or user fees imposed on the use of such federal facilities as barge canals. Gergen had nearly ruled out such increases last Tuesday. Speakes said Reagan met for 2lA hours -Friday with Weinberger and Stockman. Wanbergerargued ar recently as the mid die of the week that no cuts be made in the defense budget. Stockman wanted much deeper cuts than the defense secre tary did. Speakes said the president, who re turned to the White House Sunday, plan ned to meet with his Cabinet Tuesday or Wednesday to give them his decisions. Members of Congress would then be in formed later in the week. ip mums var Kins snaces ticularly a problem for handicapped students By MIKE McFARLAND Special to The Daily Tar Hcd The misuse of parking spaces for the handicapped is a big problem on the UNC campus a problem that is getting worse, Laura Thomas, coordinator for handi capped student services, said last week. "It's a huge problem," Thomas said. "At the beginning of a semester it's at its worst." f Motorists ignoring the handicapped de signation of parking spaces on campus complicate the handicapped student's ac cess to classes and other , school-related events, she said. . Inconsiderate people are the root of the problem, she said. The most common scenario occurs when the handicapped student drives through a parking tot to find the handicapped space has been taken, usually by someone "just running into a building." There are about 70 parking spaces on campus designated for the handicapped, said Andrew Hager, director of the UNC parking and traffic control office. Except for about 10 spaces, the handicapped parking spaces are reserved 24 hours a day, he said; : The fine for a violation is $25 plus the possibility of being towed. The price of the tow charge wilfvary according to the time of day, but the lowest rate is $22.50, Hager said. If the office receives a complaint about a specific vehicle in a handicapped space, the vehicle will be towed, he said. "We f eel a great responsibility to do the best we can for anyone who is disabled,". Hager said. The traffic control office's towing pol icy is that a vehicle will be towed if it is discovered to have three or more outstand ing citations, he said. Maj. Elbert Riggsbce of campus police said enforcement to fight the problem as a high priority for his department. "That is the main problem we watch fo," he said. "We try to get ihem (violators) out ." Handicapped students with the correct designation on their vehicles can park le gally any place on campus except in a t ire- zone or a state-owned vehicle space, ac cording to both Thomas and Hager. The traffic control office issues a yearly handicapped permit fhonored only on campus), costing $72 for the calendar year and $54 for the academic year, Hager said. Other vehicles displaying a handicapped placard on the dashboard, a handicapped license plate starting with the letters HD or an out-of-state license plate with a handicapped designation can park in a handicapped space, Thomas said. Thorns said another type of parking problem occurred when a handicapped student who appeared to be normal, but actually had a hidden disability, parked in a handicapped space. She said that some students say, "If they can park there and there's nothing wrong with them, why can't I?" Students are not the only people park ing illegally, Thomas said. "I have seen some abuses, not regularly, by state-owned cars," she said. More consideration in general is needed to solve the handicapped parking problem, Thomas, said. "It's a student, employee and visitor problem." Thomas and Dr. ' Joseph DeWalt of. sports medicine agreed there was no infor mation on exactly how many handicapped students there are. The traffic office can not tell based on the number of stickers they issue because of the handicapped li cense plates. "There's no way they can know," Thomas said. DeWalt said abuse was not the only problem for the handicapped. "One of the major problems is the location of the handicapped parking spots," he said. Students like Steve Streater, the UNC football player paralyzed by a spinal injury after a car Occident last spring, have to park behind Hill Hall to go to Venable Hall, he said. "It Just doesn't help." DcWah said. He also cited problems with the loca tion of handicapped spaces in the Bell Tower lot . Hager said the location ot handicapped spaces is usually determined by request. "Mom of the spaces thai are there are by See PARKING on page 2
