CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., Tar Heel fans who
were celebrating Friday night amid rumors that the UNC
football team was Gator Bowl-bound were almost disap
pointed by the surprise aerial attack mounted by the Vir
ginia Cavaliers Saturday afternoon.
But the Tar Heels rallied in the second half behind
Kelvin Bryant's running to score 10 unanswered points
and trim Virginia 17-14.
"I just wanted to show people I could still play,' said
Bryant, who ran for 171 yards on 28 carries. "1 didn't
know I was going to play that much."
UNC coach Dick Crum surprisingly started Bryant
and ran him more than twice as much as he did last week
against Clemson. The Tiger game was his first action
since the knee injury Oct. 3.
"We played him more than we intended to," Crum
said. "He did very well but he's not back to full speed."
Bryant himself said he is about 90 percent back but ex
perienced some pain during the game and admitted that
his flexibility is lacking.
"We really needed Kelvin's boost today," quarter
back Rod Elkins said. "He certainly gives us a lift when
he's in there, but he's not 100 percent yet'
It seems like it's happened all year, when the Tar Heels
get a man back from injuries two more go down. Satur
day was no exception. Injuries to two seniors put an end
to their college careers.
. Fullback Alan Burrus was operated on Sunday mor
ning for torn ligaments in his left knee. Burrus was well
on his way to his best performance ever and one of the
best for a fullback at UNC in a long time. He had 93
yards on just 11 rushes before being injured in the third

Linebacker Lee Shaffer received a broken leg in the

A number of other players needed to be patched up
during or after the game including defensive tackle

players blamed Scott Field's Astroturf.

TOKYO A senior executive of a Ja
panese women's magazine said Sunday he
understood the White House knew in ad
vance his magazine would provide a sum
of money after an exclusive interview with
Nancy Reagan. He said gifts like the
$1,000 that eventually reached White
House aide Richard V. Allen were custo
mary. But Allen, who is President Ronald
Reagan's national security adviser, denied
Saturday that he solicited the payment he
got from Japanese journalists as a token
of their appreciation for the interview.
He acknowledged he helped a Japanese
magazine land an exclusive interview with
the first lady the day after her husband
took office, but insisted he did not ar
range the session.
Allen's statement was released by the
White House following reports from
Tokyo quoting a magazine spokesperson
as saying the $1,000 was not offered until
it was solicited by the person who arrang
ed the interview.
The acknowledged receipt of the
money by Allen is under investigation by
the U.S. Justice Department. The .White
House announced the payment Friday
after the newspaper Mainichl Shimbun
published a story saying Tokyo police had
investigated payment to an unidentified
top White House official.
Allen said he had not solicited the
money, but had "intercepted" it, locked
it in a safe rather than cause embarrass
ment to the reporters or to Nancy Reagan
Board of GDvemor to dicn student representation
By KATHERINE LONG
DTH Staff Writer
An ad hoc committee to discuss student represen
tation on the UNC Board of Governors and other
student concerns was among the action taken at the
Board's meeting. Friday in Chapel Hill. :
-There is presently no student representation on the
32-member Board, which makes most major policy
decisions concerning the 16-campus UNC system.
The four-member committee, to be headed by Wil
liam A. Johnson, will meet with UNC Student Gov
ernment President Scott Norberg, who is also presi
dent of The University of North Carolina Association
of Student Governments. Norberg said he would
select about four members of the UNCASG to meet
with the committee, which has not yet set .the date of
its first meeting.
UNC President William. C. Friday said Sunday
that he suggested setting up a committee after he
talked to Norberg recently.
"We've got the process underway," Friday said.
"We can use it (the committee) to talk about admis-"
sions policy, housing and other things that are appro
priate." v ' s -, :
" Norberg said Sunday the idearofstudent represen
tation on the Board came up at the last few meetings
of the UNCASG, an association the 16 presidents
of the schools in the University system.
"We see student representation on the Board of
Governors as a way of helping the Board of Govern
ors make ... decisions, as a way of providing student
perspective on the issues," Norberg said.
Other committee members are William A. Dees
B. Irvin Boyle and. Geneva J. Bowe. Committee
chairman Johnson .could not be reached for com
In other action, the Board approved salaries for
chancellors, deans and general administrators, and
set salary ranges for professors in the system. Salary
increases will go into effect in January.
In addition to a 5 percent across-the-board cost of
living raise for state employees many facultyjnem
Beirs .wourfevedtidnar merit raises, "said'";
Daniel Gunter Jr., head of the Committee on Per
sonnel and Tenure.
President Friday refused the Board's recommen-
dation of a 10 percent salary raise for him, but ac
cepted a 5 percent raise instead, bringing his salary
from $75,000 to $78,750 a year. - :
Friday said his refusal of a higher salary was
"purely a matter of personal judgment.",
UNC Chancellor Christopher C. Fordham's salary
was set at $79,380, the highest paid chancellor in the
University system and second highest salary in the
UNC system. Dr. Stuart Bondurant, dean of the
UNC-Chapel Hill Medical school, received the
highest salary in the system at $100,000. .
The Board set maximum salaries for full-time
employees, which would vary from school to school.

figures for the system's universities. Friday said the
figures fell within the numbers predicted at all univer

Wilmington, .which were slightly higher.
and then forgotten about it until it was
discovered by others.
, Mainichi, quoting Japanese police re
ports, said in the article that a magazine
editor who was present at the Jan. 21 in
terview with Mrs. Reagan heard someone
utter the word "honorarium,' as she was
leaving the room when it was over.
Hearing that, the editor presented a
company envelope containing money to a
man she thought was an aide to Mrs.
Reagan, but she did not know whether
the man was Allen, Mainichi said.
The magazine's decision to make such
a contribution and the amount deemed
appropriate were agreed upon before
hand in a meeting of Shifu-no-Tbmo's
editoral staff, the magazine's spokesper
son, Katsura Ishizuka, said.
"It was understood in advance that
some of the money would be given to a
charity by the White House," said
Ishizuka, who is a director and general
manager of the monthly magazine, whose
title translates to "Housewives' Friend."
In Washington, White House spokes
man Mort Allin said there would be no
comment on Ishizuka' s remarks. An offi
cial statement Saturday said the White
House "would refrain from additional
comments on this subject," while the in
vestigation was under way.
Ishizuka said the staff settled on the
size of the honorarium on the basis of the
time spent arranging the interview, the
fact that "Mrs. Reagan was taking time
from a busy schedule to be interviewed,,
and the importance of the story, which
ran in the magazine's March issue.
In its Saturday edition, The Washing
ton Post quoted the. Japanese, reporter
w.ho interviewed Mrs. Reagan as express
ing surprise at Allen's denial that he set
up the meeting.
"That's really funny because without
the assistance of Mr. Allen the interview
would never have been realized," said the
Japanese reporter, Fuyoko Kamisaka, ac-
rnrHine to the Post acronnt. -
The story also quoted an unidentified
that before the interview took place, "We
were asked by the person who arranged
the interview what we were thinking
about in terms of 'gratitude.'
"We gave the answer, again based on
our common sense, which was $1,000,"
the spokesperson, who was present at the
interview, told the Post. "In our business
it is quite natural that we give thank-you
fees to people who collaborate with us."
College life not very different, some aid received
By SUSAN HUDSON
DTH Staff Writer
For 35 students declared "legally blind,"
college life at UNC goes on much the same as
it does for other students.
"There are no escorts or special transporta
tion," said Laura Thomas, coordinator for
handicapped student services. "Mobility in- .
struction is provided by the North Carolina
Division of Services for the Blind in Raleigh
before school starts," she said.
The mobility instructors show the students
the easiest route to classes. But after this week
of instruction, the students are on their own,
in mobility at least.
Handicapped student services provides other
services for the blind students. Thomas sche
dules classes for the students, which guaran
tees the choice of classes and eliminates the
headache of drop-add lines.
Thomas is also responsible for ordering text
books for the blind students. Braille textbooks
are still hard to obtain for most subjects and
only about 30 percent of the textbooks are
available on cassette tape, Thomas said.
Readers, some of them paid by the State
and the others individual volunteers or volun
teers from the APO service fraternity, fill the
gap when Braille or recorded books are un
available. ; ' '
"UNC will guarantee a (blind) student on
campus housing if they want it," Thomas
said. Important information, such as the
Honor Code and last year's student hand
book, have been taped for blind students' use.
Thomas even works directly with professors,
suggesting equipment and other classroom
But blind students still must meet University
requirements. "Contrary to what you might
think, blind students are not exempt from the
lab science or PE requirements," Thomas
Three of the blind students at UNC are ex
periencing few problems at school. "Every
thing has been relatively smooth," Tim
Snyder, a speech communications major, said.
"The professors work with you well and that's
important," he said.
Tim Smith, a senior political science major,
uses' readers more than any other service. This
semester each blind student is allowed 75
hours of reading time. "It used to be 100
hour," Smith said.
President Ronald Reagan's budget cuts
have led to a decrease in the number of hours
available to the students, Smith said. "Next
semester it could be just 50 hours," he said.
Smith uses his allotted 75 hours and pays
additional readers with his own money. He
could use volunteer readers, but Smith said he
finds readers more reliable when they are paid.
"I use the readers," Leslie Sitz, a junior
psychology major, said. "But I rarely use all
75 hours." Although Sitz does not always use
the maximum reader hours, he said he liked to
think it was available if necessary and called
budget cuts in the service program "unfair."
The blind students encounter frustrating
problems daily. "When you're going to new
places, there's always the potential for getting
lost," Snyder said. Scanning a book for major
points is a problem for a blind student, he
said, and opening the mailboxes in Old East is
"It's impossible for blind people at least,
blind people of my caliber," Snyder said,
laughing, "to get into those mailboxes." He
explained that neither the arrow nor the letters
were raised enough to be felt by someone try
ing to solve a combination. .

School offers alternative aid,
By CHARLOTTE HOLMES

Could you imagine trying to solve algebraic
problems or visualize the geography of your
state or learn any other subject better un
derstood with visual aid if you were a blind
student? , - - : .',,'; .-7. . -
The Governor Morehead School in Raleigh
educates children facing academic problems
such as these. It is the only residential public
institution in North Carolina for educating the
blind and visually impaired. Students from
ages 5 to 21 are eligible to participate in the
school's programs which provide without cost
room, board and educational services. I
The Governor Morehead School, with en
rollment at 200 this year, bases acceptance of a
student on two criteria: that the child be legally"
blind - vision of, 20200 after correction
and that he or she be educable. The Butner
Center in Durham provides services for the :
uneducable and for those over 21, said John
Calloway, principal of the school.
"Except for special methods of instruction
and additional specific skills which are tequir
ed, the academic program of the school is sim
ilar to that of state public schools," Calloway "
said. "There are a lot of likenesses with public
schools more so than differences; but, the dif
ferences are great."
Braille books, books in large type, and
"talking" books on tape are used in class
rooms and the library. .
Teachers at the school, even though requir
ed to be extensively trained in educating the
blind, sometimes get "exasperated" trying to.
teach concepts to blind students that teachers
themselves learned with the gift of vision as
children, Calloway said.
"There are so many things that you learned
that no one actually taught you," Calloway
said. "Think of the child, blind from. birth
who can miss concepts entirely like imagi
ning what, objects took like,, visualizing geo
metric figures or learning geography concepts.
It is a long, hard road for teachers to adapt
; teaching methods to instill concepts we take
for granted as sighted people." ,
Calloway recalled an incident when as a
substitute wrestling coach for the school team
he explained and demonstrated a move to an
excellent wrestler on the team with no success.
Calloway said he was shocked when the boy
had to remind his coach that he couldn't un
derstand the move because he couldn't see
; him. .. .-- ' . '
"Fifty percent of the 1981 graduates went to
- college but most of these did so with assistance
from the Division of Services, for the Blind.
This state department provides money for
blind students' education to pay tuition and
reader service, with respect to the parents'
. ability to pay. The stipulations for granting aid
to blind students are changing in 1982 grants,
but exactly what differences in the criteria to
be changed are unclear, Calloway said.
Students at the Governor Morehead School
are rarely left unsupervised as there are 35 cot
tage parents who live with the students in their
cottages. Some students parents think the su
pervision is either too strict or not strict
, enough, Calloway said.

After 24 years of Pi Kaps, chocolate pudding
fights and long hours spent in the' Pi Kap kitchen,
there's no where else Grace Franklin would rather be
than working at the Pi Kappa Phi house at 216 Finley

In the steamy kitchen, brothers pass through on
their way to the dining room to say a few words or
give a hug to "Mrs. Grace."
"She's just like a mama," house father Mark Beck

and says 'how was your day, " brother Wynn

For Grace Franklin, making it has at times been a
lot more than getting along with the brothers and
getting their meals on time.
In 1979 she had a call from a brother in the middle
of the night.
"Mrs. Grace, our house is burning down," he

house is burning down?"
"Then I heard somebody crying," she said. "I
