North Carolina's two lesser known of
fensive weapons came through when they
were needed Wednesday night, scoring 21
points apiece to lead the Tar Heels to a
77-72 come-from-behind victory over
Clemson in Carmichael Auditorium.
"You can stop anybody, but you have
to give up something," UNC coach Dean
Smith said. "They chose to give Black
and Doherty open 15-foot shots. That's a
free throw and Doherty is shooting 81
percent from the line, so we're not afraid
to let him shoot. I've been saying that
about both of them all along."
Both Doherty and Black had career
high scoring outputs in leading the Heels
to their 29th straight victory over the
Tigers in Chapel Hill. Going in the game,
Doherty and Black were, averaging 8.5
and 7.1 points per game respectively.
"They left myself, Matt and Michael
(Jordan) open from 15 feet," Black said.
"It was pretty apparent from the beginn

Writing section discussed for competency test

State organizations recently have ex
pressed mixed reactions over a proposal
to introduce a written section into the
state's high school competency test.
The Competency Testing Commission,
appointed, by Gov. Jim Hunt, met last
week to discuss proposals for the new sec
tion. "The current competency test is fine as
far as the mathematics and reading sec
tions are concerned," said Bill Brown,
director of the division of research for the
state Board of Education.

Few people realize exactly what
Rochelle Tucker faces each day as student
body treasurer. Being in a less visible,
behind-the-scenes position, she handles
her job with a smooth efficiency that
almost no one outside the Student
Government knows about.
-"As student body treasurer I directly
oversee about 31 organizations," the
senior business administration major
from Reidsville said. "It's my job to
watch over the treasurers of these
organizations, as well as be the treasurer
for the executive and legislative branches
of Student Government."
Tucker's job involves handling requisi
tions and processing checks for these
groups. She also holds membership in the
Media Board, the Student Educational
Broadcast Board and the Student
Doherty said he also, felt that some
teams overlook his shooting ability.
"My main role on the team is to get the
ball inside to James (Worthy) and Sam
(Perkins)," Doherty said. "But, leave me
open and I'll shoot it.
"I felt like they were saying, 'let's see
what Doherty can do.' I went out and
Tiger coach Bill Foster said his team

since he first came to Clemson. He added
that he was most pleased with the fact
that the Tigers forced the Tar Heels to
take the outside shot.
"Doherty took 10 shots in the first
half," Foster said. "I'll bet he hasn't
taken 10 shots in a game this year."
The Tigers' game plan appeared to be
working in the first half as Clemson
jumped out to an 11-2 lead in the early
going. Carolina came back slowly to tie it
at 26 and took a two-point lead before
falling behind by two at halftime.
Clemson again came out strong in the
early part of the second half, building on
to its lead until the lead reached nine
points at 54-45.
At that point the Heels returned from a
timeout with three straight baskets to get
back into the game. The Tigers built the
lead back up to seven at 60-53 in. the final

not specify the individual subjects. This is
the reason for all the discussion, he said.
"We have not addressed the proposal
specifically," said Marian Stallings, a
consultant for the North Carolina Asso
ciation of Educators. "A lot depends on
what the commission ends up with."
The NCAE maintains that "writing
skills are one of the basic needs young
people have," she said.
Stallings said state officials take the
view that "if you test for it, then it gets
taught." However, the addition of a
writing test does not ensure the inclusion
of those skills in the curriculum, she said.

the building to a private developer for a

before the decision was put into effect."
Mclver residents Robin Fullilove and
Cheryl Hale began circulating petitions
Monday night in protest of the decision.
Hale and Fullilove, who live in a room to

day to capture the signatures of passer
bys. Students who signed the petition
ranged from those who will be most af

not be affected at all.
Joe Simpson, a Mangum resident
whose room will become a quadruple

for additional occupants. "I don't know
of anybody who's going to volunteer to

Simpson lives in a tripled fourth-floor
corner room and said the ceiling slants
downward at a 60 degree angle and con

the floor. "There's no head room," he
said. "And there's no way they're going
to bunk two sets of beds."

Wednesday and said they hoped to get at
least 300 more. They will set up a table in

valuable on a crowded skate floor.
Fast-moving bodies that whiz by on all

Because of the building's limitations, the
director and board of trustees never
favored use of the space, she said. Of

space for private use.
"It seems to me that the town will very
likely need the space for municipal offices'

Leasing the building to a non-profit
organization would be expensive for the
town, Kawalec said.
"It would cost the town to be a
landlord. This question has to be looked
at in the context of the budget."
Some Chapel Hill Historical Commis

the future of the building.
