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 open." 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 t I IlIIl i (5 v if r h W - f "NO V vV' J ' "'' ' I 7" JC?

"They played hard to the very end," Crum said of the Deacons, "I was really impressed with Kenny Duckett. He really played well." 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 Duckett's play. "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." Poole's two pass interceptions made, him the most noticeable part of the i i r il m. 1 1 Carolina aeiense. m me loutnuown re- turn, he dutran three Wake players who had a chance to get him in the last 20 yards. "We were in the zone both times," Poole said. "After the touchdown, my coach told me that (the three Wake players) were all wearing 70s on their jerseys and they had better not have caught me." 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 game. 1 "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." See GAME on page 7 The cliciMelfor Fordham directs all, but leaves room to innovate By MARK SCHOEN DTH Staff Writer : ' The chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is the school's chief executive officer.. He is ul timately responsible for all projects, pro grams and activities that take place at the University. . Carolina; the chancellor is invested with complete executive authority at the Uni versity. He is responsible to UNC system President William Friday for the admini stration of the schools divisions and de partments on this campus. Despite the broad range of authority, Boulton said the word "control" was not "He is responsible for all aspects here at the University. He sits on top of it all. You have to be so many things to so many people. His job affects all of the students and employees here. He is the glue, that keeps us together." , Donald Boulton But even though the average student here could probably name the present chancellor Christopher C. Fordham III the same student might find it dif ficult to say "what the chancellor actually does and why his position is so important. "He is responsible for all aspects here at the University. He sits on top of it all," , Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Donald Boulton said recently of Ford ham's $72,O0O-per-year job; "You have to be so many things to so many people," he said. "His job affects all of the students and employees here. He is the glue that keeps us together." According to the Code Provisions Governing the University of North the best way to describe Fordham's au thority. ' "You can't coritrol a university, but he can direct, guide and lead," he said. "It's not like a business where if you don't do something I can say, 'Step aside my friend; let's get someone who will do it.' ' "It's a pretty complex job he has," Boulton said. "Some call it an impossible job." Fordham is reluctant to comment on his own personal role at the University, preferring instead to elaborate on the team effort of the administration. ' "The University's capability to provide the opportunity for students to reach their potential depends on resources, en vironment and a facilitative administra tion," Fordham said last week during an interview in his South Building office. "How we implement our physical and fiscal resources to reach those goals is what I mean by a facilitative administra tion," he said.-"It's the chancellor's job to orchestrate that." The authority the chancellor has in im plementing those resources is wide ranging. . According to the Code Provi sions, he is responsible for administrative and fiscal matters, promoting and re moving faculty members and employees and administering the day-to-day opera tions of the University, to name a few duties. "It has the potential to be a 24-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week job," Boulton said. "It's a managerial job of great pro portions, and it takes all he's got and all we've got." Despite his position's importance, Fordham's personality is a key factor in the smooth operation of the chancellor's office, said Vice Chancellor for Univer sity Relations Rollie Tillman. "What he is responsible for is truly awesome, but he would be far too modest to tell you that," Tillman said recently. "He can articulate his views and then give us a great deal of freedom to interpret that vision and carry it out. "The buck really does stop there," he Christopher C. Fordham III said. . Fordham's role as a delegator of au thority is important, Associate Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs James R. Turner said. "He tries to keep abreast of what's go ing on and knows the major happenings of the University," Turner said recently. "He's a delegator, and he expects the most out of his staff . "(Fordham) is a fine, fine individual," he said. "He's sensitive to our problems and he's aware of people. He's people oriented. "Anything that goes on here, he's re sponsible for, and in that sense the job is awesome." .r Fopo Fit aaiji q it MeiMy 4d rap e Mew doom siite-c A - By LYNN EARLEY DTH Staff Writers 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. Campus traffic 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 system." Unless the cost is shared by every stu dent, the rent charged for the new resi dence hall will be too high, he said. Temple said rent for the new residence hall would probably be higher than that of other halls because the new one would be air-conditioned. 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 said. The new hall will relieve some of the housing , shortage the University has ex perienced, Norberg said. Parking crowded By DAVE KRINSKY DTH Staff Writer 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 campus. " 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 congested areas. 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 is illegal. See PARKING on page 3 Editor's note: This article is the first of a two-part series about aging and how it will affect today's college students, both directly and indirectly. The series is running in conjunction with "What Shall We Do About Mother?: How to Deal With Aging and the Aged, " a program sponsored by the Hu man Relations Committee of the Carolina Union. By TERESA CURRY DTH Staff Writer 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, he said. "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 social tests. "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 that link. "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, Maddox said; "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 2025. "You are going to inherit serious problems," he said. "The major problem will be income main tenance. , "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 said. "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 problems.". 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 Future Selves. "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."
