ATLANTA The North Carolina Tar
Heels bounced back from their first loss
this season to defeat Georgia Tech 66-54
Saturday night at the Omni in a physical
Atlantic Coast Conference game.
"It was the most aggressive game all
year," UNC coach Dean Smith said out
side the Tar Heel locker room. "I think
this is a decisive win considering the way
Georgia Tech plays and since the refs let

game and the Yellow Jackets' physical
style of play led to several shoving mat

encounters were between Tech's Lee

Smith implied that the confrontation
may have had its roots in a game last
year, and Perkins admitted thinking
about that game.
"Something did occur last year," said
Perkins, who scored 18 points. "But
(Goza) is just a dirty player; he'll sneak
up on you any way he can. I guess since
they were behind he had nothing better to
do than pick a fight."
But Goza played perhaps his best game
of the year as he scored 12 points on a
"I would be the first to come down on
him if I felt he was playing dirty," Tech
coach Bobby Cremins said. "He is not as
quick as Perkins, so he got beat some,
but he went all out to stop him.
"I want Lee to play aggressively, and
tonight he did. He played a super ball
game and I'm happy for him."
Perkins even said Cremins Yellow

WASHINGTON-Members of Carolina Students for Life
were among more than 25,000 demonstrators who gathered in
Washington Friday to support a reversal of the 1973 Supreme
Court decision allowing most forms of abortion. Pro-choice
groups also met Friday, but to show support for the ruling.
Thirteen UNC students traveled with protestors from Duke
University, N.C. State University and Wake County to the na
tion's capitol for the ninth anniversary of the ruling. The group
supports the pro-life movement on the grounds that life begins
at conception, CSFL President Chris Kremer said. "Ultimately,
we want a human life amendment," he said.
From the Ellipse, where the speeches were
presented, the demonstrators made their way slow
ly up Pennsylvania Avenue toward Capitol Hill,
chanting and waving banners.
President Ronald Reagan is also in favor of the
passage of such an amendment, said Richard
Schweiker, secretary of the Department of Health
and Human Resources, in a speech before the
march at the Ellipse. He relayed a message from
Reagan that stated that the president believed the
issue concerned two lives, those of the mother and
Schweiker said Reagan believed the government
had the responsibility to opt on the side of the
, fetus unless the mother's life was in danger. The
goal is to protect the fetus, he said.
"It's nice to finally have a president who spesks
' out for the beliefs and convictions which made
American great," Schweiker said. He told the rally
that abortion was a moral question, one that .
.demanded people do "what's right, not what's
Schweiker said: "Times change, idealism and principles
should not. He said that since 1973, an estimated 10 million
fetuses had been aborted. "We support a human life amend
ment," he said.
North Carolina Republican Sen. Jesse Helms drew a
thunderous ovation from the crowd when he endorsed the mar
chers' cause. Helms is one of the sponsors of the proposed
Helms-Hyde amendment, which seeks to define human life as
beginning at conception. "Never has the strength of pro-life
been greater," he said.
"Destruction of the unborn is destruction of a human
being," Helms said, adding that the beginning of life was a
scientific rather than a legal question. He said it was the Senate's
obligation to take a stand on abortion.
Helms said Reagan had not retreated one step in his stand on
the issue. "He's going to support pro-life," Helms said. He also
said that the most important thing was for pro-life proponents
to stand together and act together. "We can compromise on
political strategy, but we must never, never compromise on prin
ciples," he said. -
i in Syrf1" n y ' . Ln i ii
"The protestors had differing reasons for participating in the
demonstration, but all were firm in their belief that abortion was
wrong and should not be allowed by the Constitution. "We're
standing for what we believe in," said Ken Gardner from Duke
Many marchers were there because of religious convictions.
Steve Krapf, a protestor from Huntington, Long Island, said he
was pro-life because he was Roman Catholic "My church has
taught me that abortion is wrong; it's the same as murder," he
said. Greg Goss from Duke University, also listed his religion,
Roman Catholic, as a major reason for protesting abortion.
"Most right-to-lifers have very strong religious teliefs," Kremer
. Helms addressed the crowd once again after the
march. He said he would continue to fight to pro
tect the rights of the fetus as long as he was in of
fice.. "The Lord is telling you not "to stop; we
should continue to state our case reasonably, fair
ly, in good faith and sincerely," he said.
Helms said the law should not have been passed
nine years ago. "You can trace the deterioration of
America to a point in time when we departed from
our moral obligations in America," he said.
"Kremer was especially impressed with Helms.
"He's the most dedicated supporter .we've got,"
he said. He also said he thought the message from
Reagan was a good sign. Kremer said the estimated
crowd of 25,000 pro-life supporters at the protest
should receive a lot of national coverage and ex
pose a lot more people to the issue. The only
drawback was that for the first time in nine years
congress was hot in session, he said. - -
Kremer said the CSFL planned to become more
active in challenging the abortion issue at UNC
and around the community "People have
misconceptions about the Right to Lifers; we have nothing to do
with the Moral Majority,' he said. " ;
At a meeting Friday with pro-life leaders, Reagan made no
. commitment concerning any specific piece of pro-life legisla
tion, but the meeting was positive, said Nellie Gray, president of
the March for Life Committee. Gray and members of her com
mittee also took part in the rally Friday. . : ; ? -
Pro-choice advocates also held activities last week to support
'the 1973 ruling. Organizations which support pro-choice posi
tions in the abortion issue held an interdenominational religious
service at a church a few blocks away from where the pro-life
rally was being conducted. About 1,500 people including the
leaders of 30 national religious denominations attended the pro
choice rally, said the Religious Coalition for Abortion Rights.
Advocates of the current abortion laws held a program
Thursday at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro
which focused on abortion as a woman's right. Discussions also
were held by the Coalition of Choice at Bennett College and
Guilford College. Speakers from academic and professional
-disciplines offered, thwvgumen for abortkirights.

Is your roommate slowly driving you insane? Or is the lack
of one driving you to bankruptcy?
Your worries may be over with Roommate Registry.
Roommate Registry, advertised in The Village Adxocate
as "a professional service designed to bring compatible peo
ple together to share the high cost of housing,' has recently
; been introduced to Chapel Hill by Martha Graham, a teacher
living in Hillsborough.
Graham said she studied similar services in California and
saw that such a business was needed in Chapel Hill, especially
because transfer students and young professionals were con
stantly moving to the area.
"I wanted to go into business for myself, and I felt I could
- use my skills to provide this service," she said. Now teaching
a morning high school equivalency test course in Alamance
County, Graham is a former librarian and has a real estate
" It's agony to move from place to place by yourself," she
said. "My service is designed to save people the trouble of
advertising blindly for roommates. People would rather call
one service than search for days."
Graham said another benefit of the program was personal
interviews with clients. Each client is asked for job, character
and landlord references ("to see if the bills get paid") to use
in matching compatibility.
Applications for Roommate Registry include questions
such as "Do you object to your roommate having overnight

guests? or using drugs or alcohol?" or "Do you prefer some
one who is 'gay'?" Are you "outgoing, a partier, quiet,
studious, neat, easy-going, open-minded, conservative or
have a sense of humor?"
"I can ask questions that ordinary roommates aren't in the
position of asking," Graham said.
When a preference for the opposite sex is made, it is usually
for financial reasons and for either sex, she said. "It's not a
...(dating) service; there are enough of those already.'
..Graham said she hoped to get landlords in the area to list
with Roommate Registry so her service can reach people of
all ages students, young professionals, recent divorcees
and older people.
. The fee for Roommate Registry is $20, as compared with
$50 in California. If up to six compatible listings are not pro
vided within 60 days, Graham will extend the deadline or re
fund half the fee, she said.
