Chapel Hill, North Carolina
upset by USC
as many hurt

One by one the mighty have fallen, like domi

"This is a wacky year in football," UNC
coach Dick Crum said. "Everybody's getting
beat. We played hard; we did everything we
could to win. It was just our turn to lose."
North Carolina, gunning for a No, 1 ranking, .
an undefeated season and a major bowl bid,
found itself on the other side of a rout for a
change. South Carolina dominated UNC all day
long in Kenan Stadium in front of 50,000 fans
and scouts from Sugar, Cotton, Sun and Fiesta
UNC, now 6-1, was devastated by injuries to
key players. It seemed as if an endless parade of
wounded Tar Heels limped, hobbled or stag
gered off the field through the chilly afternoon.
"We had a lot of adversity," Crum said.
"Things like injuries to people like (Rod)
Elkins, (Tyrone) Anthony, (Mike) Marr, (Darrell)
Nicholson, (Bill) Jackson, (Jack) Parry. And we
didn't have (Greg) Poole or (Darryl) Lucas to
start. We had to play them because we ran out
of defensive backs. I'm glad we don't have to
practice right now. I don't think we would have
Brian Johnston, William Fuller and Jon
Richardson also missed playing time when they
were shaken up, while linebacker Lee Shaffer
did not suit up for the game. The UNC defense,
which was hit hardest by injuries, fell victim to
USCs offensive tandem of quarterback Gordon
Beckham and tailback Johnnie Wright, who
rushed for 115 yards.
The Gamecocks, not exactly healthy them
selves, wasted no time in setting the tempo of
the game. On its opening drive, USC went 80
yards in nine plays to take a 7-0 lead. The drive
featured the. passing of Beckham, who had an
almost flawless day.
At one point he was 14 of 14, and he finished
the game 16 of 17, the only incompletion coming
on an pffensive pass interference call. Beckham
hurt the Tar Heels with short passes to tight end
DeWayne Olivers, who had seven receptions for
37 yards and one touchdown catch.

Because a proposed Southern Bell increase would
raise telephone hookup costs for students from $15.20
to $56.65, petitions will begin circulating around
campus in an effort to fight the increase, Robert
Bianchi, Residence Hall Association president, said
The increase would also raise monthly rates by
Before it can go into effect, the rate hike must be
approved by the North Carolina Utilities Commis
sion. It is at the commission's public hearings that
Bianchi said he hoped to make an impact with the
"I'd like to get 10,000 names," he said. "No one
wants to pay almost $60 to hook up their phone.
We're going to present the petitions to the commis
sion to show student oppositibn to the increase."
In a similar effort last year, almost 10,000 signa
tures were collected, Bianchi said.
"They did a lot of good," he said. "The members
of the commission were impressed with the student v
The proposed phone rate increase is needed to
cpver operating costs, said Ladd Baucom, public re
lations manager for Southern Bell.
"Because of recent action by Congress, the tele
phone industry is being deregulated," Baucom said.
"It is increasingly important for Southern Bell to
match its costs with the rates it charges.
"Even if the increase is approved, it still keeps
phone service below cost," he said.
To help ease the impact on students, a mass sign
up credit was begun two years ago, Baucom said. By
turning in phone hook-up requests in large numbers,
students received a lower rate.
Students were given a $3 credit the first year and a
$5.35 credit this year, he said.
Increasing the credit for students is one goal
Bianchi said he hoped to accomplish through the

The number of black and female faculty
members at the University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill decreased slightly during the past
year, according to a report released to the Facul
ty Council Friday.
As a result, one of the University's major re
sponsibilities should be the addition of more ,
female and minority members to the faculty,
UNC Chancellor Christopher C. Fordham III
said during the council's meeting in Morehead
"Among the priorities we have facing us is
progress in the diversification of our faculty and
staff," Fordham told council members. "The
students support this; they want this.
"As far as I'm concerned, the urgency is
now," he said.
According to the report, entitled "Minority
and Female Presence in The University at
Chapel Hill," the number of faculty members
decreased by seven, from 1,887 to 1,880, from
Sept. 30, 1980 to Sept. 30, 1981.
The number , of black faculty members de
creased from 57 to 54 during the past year. The
total number of female faculty members also
decreased from 367 to 362.
The yearly report of minority and female pre
sence at the University was first issued in 1974.
Fordham urged present faculty members to
actively' participate in the recruitment of mi
nority and female faculty.
"Insist to your department that every effort
be made to diversify the faculty," he said. "We
need to take the effort to interest women and
blacks in academic careers.
"This is a trying time for diversification,"
Fordham said. "We must take advantage of
Fordham also urged that efforts be made to
improve advancement among present faculty
. "Our new faculty are very impressive on
paper and in person," he said. "It's very im
portant for our young faculty to succeed."
According to the report, six fewer women
and one less black are in tenure track positions
than werej last year. The number of black pro
fessors decreased from seven to six, and the
number of female professors, black and white,
increased from 37 to 38. The number of black
associate professors remained 18, while the
number of female associate professors increased
from 93 to 95.
There is one more black assistant professor .
than there was last year, while women showed a
decrease of nine from 114 to 105 in that
Enrollment figures released in the same report
showed that a record number of blacks were re
gistered at the University in August.
A total of 1,809 blacks were enrolled in 1981
an increase of 122. But there was one less
black graduate student and five fewer black
professional students than last year.
This fall, for the fourth time ever during a
non-war year, the number of female students
outnumbered male students 5414 percent to
45.6 percent. There are 21,575 undergraduate,
graduate and professional students enrolled in
the University, 11,740 of whom are women.
"There has been some progress in diversi
fying the student body, but that makes the need
more compelling to diversify faculty and staff,"
In other matters, the council unanimously
passed a resolution urging the General Assem
bly to reconsider its medical insurance plan to
secure better coverage for the faculty.
The plan now in effect freezes coverage for
doctors' charges and hospital rates at Sept. 30,
1981, levels. If medical costs rise before July
1982, the state employee is responsible for pay
ing the total difference.

Many owned by non-farmers
The Associated Press
RALEIGH A study of leaf allotments in North Carolina
shows that many of them are owned by non-profit organizations,
public agencies and large business interests.
Ownership of the allotments became an issue last week when
the House voted 231-184 Wednesday to defeat an amendment
that would have killed the tobacco support program. The Senate
turned back a similar measure last month by even a closer margin.
Holders of the allotments are beneficiaries of a 43-year-old
federal franchise that gives them the privilege to grow tobacco.
When Congress created the program, ohly growers were
awarded allotments. In the next 43 years, the land to which
many allotments were tied was sold or passed on to heirs of al
As a result, groups owning tobacco allotments include doc
tors, lawyers, widows, corporations, colleges and civic clubs.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, almost 58
percent of the people holding allotments in North Carolina do
not grow tobacco. Instead, they lease their rights to grow tobacco
commercially to farmers.
During debate in the House last week, tobacco foes described
the program as feudalistic and monopolistic, calling allotment
holders "economic royalists."
In a press conference Saturday, Sen. Jesse Helms, R-N.C,
acknowledged that some changes would have to be made in the
tobacco program. He said hearings would be held in North
Carolina and other tobacco-pioducing states before Congress
takes any action to reform the program.
Included among the list of tobacco allotment holders is
Helms' wife, Dorothy.
Rep. Charles G. Rose III also acknowledged that changes
would have to be made.
"We need to take a close look at allotments and try to assess
what the trade-offs are, what the positive and negative aspects
of absentee ownership of allotments are," Rose said.
According to a list of 1 16,098 tobacco allotment holders ob
tained by The News and Observer of Raleigh, holders of the
Public utilities, which own at least 233.81 acres of allot
ments, with Carolina Power & Light Co. holding the most,
The medical profession: A total of 141 doctors own 561.9
acres. . ; .
Churches: Nineteen own a total of 22.7 acres. The amounts
range from 5.18 acres owned by the Leaflet Presbyterian Church
in Harnett County to .15 acres owned by the Good Hope Baptist
Church in Raleigh.
Public bodies, which own 180.5 acres, including the city of
Rocky Mount, which owns' 10.2 aires. t . ;
Builders and developers, who own at least 37 1.62 acres -
Schools and colleges, such as Duke University (13.2 acres),
Shaw University in Raleigh (1.29 acres) and Carolina Bible In
stitute in Johnston County (1.53 acres).
Recreation organizations, including the Johnston County
Country Club (1.45 acres), the Lake Surf Racquet dub in
Moore County (1.04 acres) and the Southhall Swim Club in
Wake County (.68 acres).
Financial institutions: Banks own 2,884 acres for estates
and absentee owners.
In addition to Mrs. Helms, who owns 2.04 acres, other
families of politicians who own allotments include Gov. Jim
Hunt's father, who has a 3.26-acre allotment, and Tom F. Ellis,
chairman of the National Congressional Club, who owns .57
Instead of cutting off the phone in May and re
connecting it in August, a low monthly rate would be
charged even though the phone was not in use,
Suspended service would avoid an initial hook-up
charge for students, he said. "The bill for the sus
pended service would still be lower than the standard
cost of a phone connection."
But that proposal turned out to be unfeasible,
Bianchi said; The reasons were explained to him in a
letter from Mike Carson, district manager for
. There is no guarantee that the same student will
move back into the room, Carson's letter said,
adding that' Southern Bell could not legally bind
someone to pay the bill.
Carson also wrote that some rooms were used to
house summer school students, which would cause
many billing problems.
Because there have been recent moves to deregu
late some areas of telephone service, long-distance
calling and telephone themselves will cost less in the
future Baucom said.
"Competition may drive some facets of the indus
try down, so we (Southern Bell) have to take what's
left," he said. "Still, costs aren't going to zip through
.the roof. There are alternatives that would keep costs
down, including measured service."
Measured service would charge a customer for the
number of calls he makes instead of charging a flat
monthly rate, Baucom said.
"You might even be able to hook up a phone in
your home," he said. "There are alternatives
"We're going to try and keep it affordable."
