B-ball wins big at Wake Forest
Meeh wallow EDeacs 69
By JOHN ROYSTER
Assistant Sports Editor
GREENSBORO There is no truth to the rumor that the
University of North Carolina and Wake Forest University will
change basketball home courts next year.
But that might not be a bad idea, since Carolina's 69-51 win
here Wednesday night marked the fourth time in the last four
regular season meetings between the schools that the visiting
team has won.
Carolina's victory kept them a game behind first place Vir
ginia in the Atlantic Coast Conference regular season race, and
virtually eliminated Wake Forest from the championship chase.
The win came largely as a result of very efficient execution of
the four corners offense, and the sensational play of forward
"That may have been (Worthy's) finest game in a Carolina
uniform," UNC coach Dean Smith enthused. "He played great
against Georgia Sunday and again tonight."
Worthy scored 23 points, had nine rebounds, four assists,
four steals and a blocked shot. His performance was nearly
matched by Wake's Guy Morgan, who had 23 points and eight
rebounds. Morgan fouled out with 2:22 remaining. "
The 18-point final margin was Carolina's biggest lead of the
game, thanks to free throws made after Wake Forest fouls in the
closing minutes of the game.
The first half began with Carolina penetrating Wake's zone,
with inside players Worthy and Sam Perkins accounting for the
Tar Heels' first 15 points.
After that, the rest of the players got into Carolina's offense
and Wake failed to make jump shots over Carolina's zone and
the Heels led by as many as 11 points with AVi minutes re
maining in the period.
The halftime score was 31-22.
There was trepidation among the Carolina

N, C. AFL - CIO hopes new leader
and image will boost membership
By KEN SIMAN
DTH Staff Writer
Officials in the N.C. AFL-CIO are
confident that with a less controversial
president, a new image and the potentially
unifying force of an anti-labor U.S.
President, the state can overcome its
notoriety as the least unionized state in
E.A. Britt, 57, was elected president of
the state AFL-CIO in September when he
defeated Wilbur Hobby, who was presi
dent for 12 years. (Hobby was sentenced
to 18 months in prison Dec. 28 for con
spiring to misuse federal job-training
funds.) Britt's low-key style contrasts
with the more charismatic and contro
versial Hobby, observers said recently.
"Hobby was the ideal personality for
the problems (of Vietnam and integration)
of his term in office," said UNC law pro
fessor Dan Pollitt. "Wilbur's a volatile
person, not the follow-through type,"
Pollitt said. "He's more of an originator
than an administrator. Britt's the other
Britt acknowledges the differences be
tween his style and that of his predeces
sor. "I'm nowhere near as flamboyant,"
he said recently. Unlike Hobby, Britt
would be less likely to take liberal and
outspoken stands on national issues, ob
Britt and Christopher Scott, secretary-
treasurer of the state AFL-CIO, say their
plans include the creation of a more posi
tive image for unions by involving union
members in community projects, bringing
with 9:40 remaining in the first half, point guard Jimmy Black
fell to the floor with a twisted ankle,
"I went up for a shot and came down on somebody else's
ankle," Black said after the game. Black hobbled off the court
; and trainer Marc Davis placed ice on the ankle at the Tar Heel
bench. Black returned at the start of the second half and moved
around with little trouble. Ice was reapplied to the ankle after
the game and Black will be ready for Saturday's contest at
' The opening minutes of the second half were strictly a sea-saw
proposition, with Carolina unable to open up more than a 10-12
point lead, and Wake unable to close the gap.
But the Deacons committed their seventh-team foul with
10:30 remaining in the second half, sending UNC into a bonus
situation unusually early.
The Heels immediately went to their delay game, and from
that point the Deacons might as well have retired to their pews.
The party began with two Worthy slam dunks within a minute
of each other, and continued through four more layups before
Wake began fouling in the last three minutes.
From that point the Tar Heels went 11-15 from the free
throw line to ensure the win.
The four corners was so successful because it did one of the
, things it was designed to do take the opponents big players
out from under the basket.
"I don't think (Wake center Jim) Johnstone wants to come
out and guard someone away from the basket," Carolina's Matt
"I was worried once in the second half when we misfired
twice on one of our best plays Worthy to Perkins andJPerkins

been all year." .

local labor unions more autonomous.
Britt said the current political and eco
nomic climate may be a blessing in dis
guise for the state's labor movement.
"With Ronald Reagan in office, peo
ple are approaching a period of time that
they will want to become organized,"
Britt said. "There's very little they can do
about (the economy and working con
ditions) without having someone speak
Scott said the state AFL-CIO plans to
concentrate on internal organizing
bringing unions that had left back into
the organization. .
While Britt and Scott have had some
success during their first five months in
office about 30,000 new and renewed
AFL-CIO membership have brought the
state level to about 80,000 they still
face stiff obstacles. About 6 percent of
the state's work force is unionized the
lowest in the nation. The national average
is 23.9 percent.
North Carolina has a history of har
boring anti-union attitudes. To eradicate
this negative image, AFL-CIO members
are becoming more active in community
affairs in an effort to polish the image of
organized labor. In addition, both Scott
and Britt agreed it was necessary to edu
cate North Carolinians about unions.
"North Carolinians' ignorance of
unions is abysmal," said Bob Hall, labor
observer and an editor for Southern

the state AFL-CIO would lose political
influence if Britt refrained from speaking

attention which drew "dramatic attention

Carolina," Brown said.
With a less vocal leader, media
coverage would diminish, resulting in a
decrease of political clout, he added. "If
Britt takes a low-key stance, the media

The Campus Governing Council
unanimously passed an act to amend the
by-laws of the Student Audit Board
Wednesday, expressing hope that the new
laws would provide a system of checks
"It (passage of the new by-laws) has
cleaned up the confusion over what the
laws of the Audit Board are," Student
Body President Scott Norberg said.
Some of the confusion was created last
semester when' the board created its own
by-laws and selected its own membership.
The new by-laws prevent this from occur
ring again, Norberg said.
The council's action came as a result of
the passage of a consitutional admend
ment in the Feb. 9 campus elections
allowing the CGC to revise the by-laws of
the Audit Board.
. The new by-laws require that the Audit
Board submit two nominations per va-.
cant position to the student body presi
dent. The president will then submit one
name to the CGC for final approval. If
the president disapproves of these names
he can call for the board to submit two
. more names. The by-laws state that he
cannot request more than one additional
list of names.
Most of the complaints against the new
by-laws centered on the appointment pro
cess. In earlier discussion of the proposed
laws, Audit Board members said the in
volvement of the student body president
in the selection process would open an ,
avenue for political influence, .
Through long discussion between the
CGC, the Audit Board and Student
Government over the past few weeks,
must of the board's complaints were iron
ed out, although some speculation, re
mains. "The board still does not perceive it as
- an ideal situation," Audit Board member
Sandy Cockrell said. "With the student
body president being involved in the
selection process, a board member,
regardless of his objective attitude on key
policy issues, may feel some allegiance to
the president and thus jeopardize his
degree of objectivity."
Despite his objection, Cockrell said the
existing system had been charasterized by
mistrust on both sides and that the board
" would stand behind the new by-laws to
eliminate mistrust in the future.
In rewriting the by-laws, the Rules and
Judicary Committee listened to ideas
from both members of the Audit Board
and Student Government.
"What we wanted was a compromise
between all different factions," Rules and
Judiciary Committee Chairperson Phil
Painter said. "Being that it (the by-laws)
