College football returned to Chapel Hill
Saturday as the fifth-ranked North Caro
lina Tar Heels showed a record Kenan
Stadium crowd and Orange Bowl scouts
that they are more than a one-man team.
The Tar Heels, playing their first full
game without the services of star tailback
Kelvin Bryant, humiliated conference
rival Wake Forest 48-10.
"Our youngsters came out and played
well," UNC coach Dick Crum said.
"They threw the ball so much that we felt
that we had to control the ball.'
Carolina got solid performances all
around, but Bryant's substitutes, sopho
mores Tyrone Anthony and Bob Ratliff,
played outstanding games. Anthony
made the most of his first start,' carrying
the ball 26 times for 224 yards and two :
touchdowns, while Ratliff ran for 158
yards in a reserve role. ,
"Tyrone got in the groove early, and he
didn't seem to get tired," Crum said, "I
could tell this morning that he had his
mind on what he was doing."
Anthony, however, was quick to give
credit for his play to his teammates.
"I can't give enough credit to the of
fensive line," he said. "There were a lot
of holes out there that were just wide
Anthony added that a talk with Bryant
the night before the game helped build
confidence in his first starting role.
"Kelvin kept telling me that he knew I
could do it," Anthony said. "I figured
that if someone else could have faith in
me, then I should have faith in myself."
Crum praised the Deacons for their re
fusal to quit even though the Tar Heels
dominated most of the contest. He said
he was especially impressed with Wake
wide receiver Kenny Duckett, who was
playing his first game since injuring a

UNC defensive back Greg Poole, who
had two interceptions Saturday, including
one he returned for a 66-yard touch
down, agreed with Crum's assessment of
"He had his knee in this big brace,"
Poole said. "I can't see how anybody
could run in that thing, but he was doing
a good job of it."

players) were all wearing 70s on their
jerseys and they had better not have
The Tar Heel passing attack gained 76
yards and scored three touchdowns, but
Crum said he was not pleased with the
team's passing game.
"Our passing game did not go as well
as I would have liked, particularly in the
first half," Crum said. "Part of that was
that I didn't think "our receivers were
playing up to their capabilities.''
One bright spot in the UNC air attack
was the play of tight end Shelton Robin
son. Before Saturday's game, Robinson
had never caught a touchdown pass in a
Carolina uniform. But on Saturday, the
senior from Goldsboro made up for lost
time with two scoring catches.
"It really does feel good," Robinson,
said. "I was open on both plays, and I
just had to catch the ball."
Saturday's game proved to be a test the
Tar Heels were ready to face. Poole said
he felt the team was improving with each
"The Scoreboard isn't showing the big
numbers like 56-0 every week, but I think
we're improving," Poole said. "Wake
Forest was by ho means a slouch, and I
think we're going to continue to face a
challenge every week." ,
The Tar Heels face archrival N.C. State
this Saturday in Raleigh in a game that
will be important for both teams.
"That's always a big game," Robinson
said. "They'll be up to play us, and we'll
certainly be ready for them."

The UNC Board of Trustees approved a
site and an architectural firm Friday for
the new 500-bed residence hall it approved
last spring. .
The new building will be located be-
tween Kessing Pool and Fetzer Gym
nasium, said John L. Temple, vice chan
cellor for business and finance. ,
Six Associates of Asheville has been
chosen as. the architectural firm, Temple
said. "We're going to try to get it under
contract by this time next year," he said.
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
Donald Boulton said the tentative date for
completion was 1985, but added that reach
ing that goal depended on many factors.
The residence hall will be financed by a
bond, because state law requires that no
dormitories be financed by state money
and that each must eventually be self
supporting. Student Body President Scott Norberg,
a member of the board, said the cost of the
bond would be spread out by means of in
creased rent in other residence halls. Rent
in other residence halls would increase by
about $50 to $60, he added.
Boulton said that each residence hall
built on the UNC campus was financed in
this manner. "The way we can keep (the
new hall's rent) low as we've done with
every dorm is to take it into the

dent, the rent charged for the new resi

other halls because the new one would be
Boulton said the structure of the hall
had not been decided upon but that if it
were well designed it could be used during
the summer as housing for short-term pro
gram participants. Air conditioning would
ensure year-round comfort.
The rent from additional use could help
finance the building and lower the cost for
students, he said.
"If we can build this in a flexible way,
we can get more use out of it," Boulton
The new hall will relieve some of the

perienced, Norberg said.

Each semester around midterm exami
nations, many students complain that they
cannot find a legal parking space because
more students stay on campus to study.
The traffic office does have a policy of
selling a slightly greater number of permits
than there are spaces. But Caroline B. Tay
ior.tadmimstrative assWtant to the traffic
office, said overcrowding was not a major
problem because many people do not stay
parked in a space for an entire day.
One example is teachers who leave cam
pus after teaching a class, she said.
"We try not to oversell more than we can
accommodate," she said. -
The S4 parking area has 1 ,320 parking .
The traffic office sells 1,650 permits for
this area, 100 of which are reserved for
North Carolina Memorial Hospital emplo
yees and 100 for traffic office employees.
In the S-5 area, there are 680 spaces and
816 permits sold.
Also, people with state motor vehicle
handicapped permits or University handi
capped permits may park in any lot on
Robert Sherman, director of Security
Services, said he would prefer that no
tickets were ever given. But tickets have to
be given to illegally parked cars to protect
people who have a legal right park in cer
tain areas, he said.
The trafic office gave out 10,900 cita
: tions for the three-month period beginning
July T.: This 'number is slightly below
average because the campus is less crowded
during the summer.
Andrew Hager, parking control coordi
nator, said most infractions occurred in
North Campus lots and near N.C. Memo
rial Hospital because there are the most
A new. 15-day deadline for appealing
traffic citations was adopted this year to
help keep the number of infractions down.
While it could have takeaup to three months
to get a decision on an appeal last year, the
new system can almost guarantee a deci
sion in three days or less, Sherman said.
According to the new system, if a person
feels that he received an unjustifiable cita
tion, he must appeal, in writing or in per
son, within 15 days of receiving the ticket.
Within a few days, he will receive a deci
sion in the mail! If the offender disagrees
with this decision, he has the right to ap
peal to an appeals board within 10 days.
The decision of the appeals board is final.
C-This (new system) wiU have the effect
of reducing tickets," ' Sherman said. ' Last
year students would keep parking illegally
until they hear from the appeals officer
and, buy that time, they could have received
many more tickets.
Another change the traffic office made
over the summer was to reduce the amount
charged for a car parked without a permit
to the original $10. That amount was in
creased to $20 last year because officials
thought the higher charge would discourgc
these violations. But, because there was an
increase of violations, the amount has
been cut back.
Parking without a permit accounts for
the largest number of tickets at 41 percent.
The remaining ticket breakdown is as fol
lows: expired meter, 24 percent; wrong
permit in a certain zone, 11 percent; and
24 percent for a variety of other infractions
including improper display of a permit.
A ticket for parking in a handicapped
space costs the offender $25, and a stolen
permit posts an offender $50.
If a person continually parks illegally,
the traffic office resorts to towing, A car
can be towed if it has received three pre
vious citations, Hager said.
On the average, three or four cars were
towed daily, he said. '
Sherman said there were no permits left
for sale and that permits are rarely returned
to be resold. "If someone gets a permit
they hold on to it," he said.
All transactions of permits must be
made through the traffic office. The sale
or trading of permits between individuals

Probably few students have thought about what
they will be doing in the year 2025, but those who
are currently 20 or older will find themselves clas
sified as elderly citizens then.
"In '25 we' are going to have the largest pro
portion of elderly in the history of the U.S.," said
Dr. George Maddox, director of the Duke Center
for Aging and Human Development. His classifi
cation of the elderly, based on current definitions,
is everyone 65 or older.
"You will be living proof of one of the most in
teresting challenges to society," he said. "Our
society is not geared up for population aging.
We've never been here before."
Maddox has been working since 1955 on charting
normal aging processes at the center, where most
of the actual work on the project has been done,
"The study is the most comprehensive of its kind
done in this country on community dwelling popu
lations," he said. , j - - :
Patients of the center were asked if they would
participate in the study, Maddox said, If they
1 agreed to, they would usually begin by taking two
days of tests, including behavioral, biomedical and
"The 'study developed an upbeat view of the
formal aging process for us," he said.
"First, we learned not to confuse the normal
aging process and illness. We found illness is not a
natural process of aging, so we are trying to break
"Secondly, we learned the importance of con
. tinuity in a person's life. Elderly people have an
amazing stability in the absense of illness to stay
healthy," he said.
Now, about 1 1 .3 percent of the U.S. population
is 65 or older, Maddox said. Of this percentage
about 5 percent are in nursing homes, and about
another 5 percent are in poor health. The per
centage of, elderly people in North Carolina is
about 1 percent less than the national average.
In other words, there are about 23 million elder
ly citizens in the United Slates, and the 5 percent
figures represent about I million people each,
"Twenty-one million are doing far better than
stereotypes suggest," he said. "Most elderly peo
ple are competent and well satisfied with their
lives. ; ' -:
"Even doctors are guilty of stereotyping. When
thinking of stereotypes, if you say aging you say
trouble in 16 flavors. We want t do away with
these stereotypes. ...
"We think of aging as related to change; yet -when
you see declines, it is not just aging. Our
findings show there is hope for you," he said.
By 2025; according to current predictions, 17 to
18 percent of the U.S. population will be older
than 65, Maddox said. After then, the population
should stabilize or decrease because of the de
clining birth rate of recent years.
To get a sense of what the population composi
tion might be like in 2025, one can look at West
Berlin, where 25 percent of the population is
elderly because of a migration of young people out
of the city, he said.
There are also little enclaves of elderly people in
certain counties in the United States because of mi
grations of older people, he said. For instance, one
could go to some small towns in Florida to see
what the population composition might be like in
"You are going to inherit serious problems," he
said. "The major problem will be income main
, "We didn't anticipate that the age composition
would change as fast as it did. Plus, unemploy
ment rates are high and people are retiring earlier.
' "The current problems with Social Security are
due to changes in age composition," he said.
Around 1950, there were about five workers
supporting each individual receiving Social
Security, he said. Now it is close to three workers
for every one. By 2025, there may be only two
workers to support each person on Social Security.
Health care for the elderly will also need to be
improved as the population grows older, Maddox
said. As . a part of that, people are beginning to
consider community-based care centers.
"A challenge for (today's) generation will be ad
justing to changing technology," he said. "Cur
rently universities have no provisions to make
education a lifetime career.
' "A 75-year-old may have thought of learning as
a lifetime thing, but we generally think of terminal
degrees. A terminal degree is the last degree you
receive before you go out into the world," he said.
Transportation will also be a problem, Maddox
"You will be dependent on an auto even if there
is no energy crisis," he said. "Your capacity to
drive and the affordability to do so will become
The center presented the findings of its survey to
Congress, and they were published last year as a
series of small paperback volumes entitled Our
"We chose the title we did to try and grab
people's attention," Maddox said. "The findings
are Our issues and not those of older people. It will
be a challenge to see if our society can manage."
