'-s Z7 ;fZ j ' v- slip past Cuvs behind Mryanl By CLIFTON BARNES DTH Sports Editor 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 period. nit s J " it Si - .

Shaffer, riddled with nagging injuries all year, was a big play man all year and already had nine tackles when he was forced to leave the game. A number of other players needed to be patched up during or after the game including defensive tackle William Fuller and offensive guard Mike Marr. Both players blamed Scott Field's Astroturf. "If it were up to me the junk (Astroturf) would be outlawed," Marr said. But the Tar Heel players and coaches did not blame the injuries for the closeness of the game with the 1-8 Cavaliers. "We just didn't play a good sound football game," Elkins said. "Coach Crum knew they would be tough and he prepared us well. We just made mistakes and didn't execute." The Tar Heels took an early 7-0 game but Cav quarter back Gordie Whitehead threw completions up and down the field in the first half to stun the Tar Heels by helping Virginia to a 14-7 lead going into the locker room at the half. "We really thought they would run right at us, but Whitehead came out passing," Fuller said. "The coach told us at halftime that we weren't taking it to them and See GAME on page 2 The Associated Press 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 ment Sunday. 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. SalajaejxaclipJOesaQr m decided upon b&the separate universities,' Gunter said. Mawmurri i salaries for UNC-Chapel Hill and N.C. State University the highest in the system are: professor, $50,500; associ ate professor, $38,000; assistant professor, $30,100; and instructor, $25,100. President Friday also announced 1981 enrollment figures for the system's universities. Friday said the figures fell within the numbers predicted at all univer sities except at N.C. State, UNC-Asheville and UNC 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 rspokesrrsQafe 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 modifications. . 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 said. 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 an impossibility. "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. . See BLIND on page 2 School offers alternative aid, By CHARLOTTE HOLMES DTH Staff Writer 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. 7 1 1 r- ' i ip1 V 4 . 1 3 n mill I II in; i.mi.nniii..M.i mwmn imi urn few Grace Franklin, Pi Kappa Phi fraternity cook and 'mama' ... has been working there for 24 years DTHAI Steele University people Cook recoiiiits pat Editor's note: This story is the first in a five-part series about some of the people in the University community who have been involved with students over the years and have seen them come and go, change and stay the same. By CATHY WARREN DT1 Staff Writer 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 Golf Course Rd. 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 said. "She makes breakfast and comes in during lunch and says 'how was your day, " brother Wynn Walker said. "She adds a lot of personality to the house." Their comments reflect not only affection, but pride in the Pi Kaps' most prized tradition. "Guys come back and bring their girlfriends to meet her," Walker said. "She's a selling point of the house. "I love boys," Franklin said. "I always get a good bunch. -"We make it," she said. 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 said. "1 said 'Look here-you boys been drinking and acting up, " Franklin said. "What do you mean the house is burning down?" "Then I heard somebody crying," she said. "I said, 'what in the H is happening?' "It was the same as a death to me," she said. "They had been doing initiations. They kept coming to me for candles. I said, 'I'm not going to give you no more candles. Y'all going to burn this house down.' " With the top and part of the second floors of the house destroyed by fire, the fraternity meals were See GRACE on page 4
