PITTSBURGH Danny Marino's heralded
arm of steel was more than a little rusty in Pitt's
season opener against North Carolina Thursday
night, but one perfect pass was all he needed to
defeat the Tar Heels 7-6 in Three Rivers Stadium.
In the game billed as an offensive show starring
Marino and UNC tailback Kelvin Bryant, the two
Heisman TYophy candidates were upstaged by
their supporting cast on defense.
But penalties marred any flash of brilliance by
the two Top 10 teams. The stakes turned out to be
the most dominant force. There were more flags '
flying in the stadium than at the United Nations.
CBS must have wondered why it shelled out $1.1
million to telecast the game.
"It wasn't pretty out there," Pitt Head Coach
Foge Fazio said. "Offensively, we were disap
pointing. We were too keyed up and forced things.
We really had to scratch, bite and fight our way
onto the scoreboard."
Marino, the marksman, was off target most of
the night except on a four-yard touchdown pass to
Bryan Thomas midway through the third quarter.
The 69-yard drive was the only one in which Pitt
resembled a potential national champion.
"In the third quarter our offense came to life,"
Fazio said. "Then, in the fourth quarter, we may
have panicked again and we did things that were
out of our character. Danny is under a lot of
"I personally made a lot of mistakes," said
Marino, who completed 15 of 28 passes with four
interceptions. "I didn't play too intelligently. In
my mind I didn't want to force the ball deep, but I
Meariwhile, Pitt held Bryant to 58 yards on 16
carries. By the end of the game, UNC's fragile
tailback saw only limited action because of a bruis
ed foot. Artificial turf, the bane of Bryant's 1981
season, was no magic carpet against Pitt either.
"Kelvin missed about 10 days practice due to
that sore foot, and so his condition level is not up
to that of the others," UNC Coach Dick Crum
said. "Plus Pitt just has a great defense. Herschel
Walker didn't fare well against them either."
Rod Elkins, overshadowed before the game by
Marino, proved UNC is more than a one-tailback
show. His new drop-back passing game, as well as
his old scrambling style, netted 156 yards through
the air. He was 14 for 30 with one interception.
All significant gains were repeatedly negated by
penalties, however. Each team practically invited
the other to score as UNC was penalized 15 times
for 133 yards and Pitt racked up 13 penalties for a
loss of 97 yards.
"I wasn't disgusted or discouraged, but you
can't fritter away opportunities," Crum said.
"You have to take advantage of them against the
team the caliber of Pittsburgh."
One of Pitt's more blatant errors led to UNC
first score; The Heels were stopped cold in the first
quarter. But when Bill Maas roughed punter David
Lowe, UNC got another chance on Pitt's 43 yard
Elkins completed two quick passes to Doug
Sickels and Bryant, and Bryant ran for four more
before UNC faced a fourth down on the 22.
Brooks Barwick nudged a fluttering 39-yard field
goal over the post, the longest of his college career,
to put UNC up 3-0. The Tar Heels clung to that
tenuous lead the rest of the first half.
Somewhere amid all the celebrities was walk-on
kicker Rob Rogers. He supplied the other half of
UNCs offensive output with a 48-yard field goal
early in the fourth quarter. Appropriately enough, ,
the 58-yard drive was set up by a Marino bomb
that self-destructed when Walter Black intercepted
it on the UNC 42. Elkins' 22-yard pass to Earl
Winfield and Ethan Horton's 15-yards, on four
carries put Rogers within range. ; '
"Right before the kick there was a television
timeout and I had time to think about it," Rogers
said. "It's nice to score, cut we could have easily
won tonight; Instead, it was what-if game."
While UNC's offense sputtered, the defense
held on tenaciously.
"Their defense played well and our defense
played as well," Crum said. "When you can hold
the team of Pittsburgh's explosiveness to 7 points,
you've done a good night's job."
With Marino's 6'4" frame keeping over the
rush-like periscope, UNC's linebackers and secon
dary had the job of stopping his airborne
"Our motive was to contain Marino," line
backer Aaron Jackson said. "That's one thing I
think we accomplished by changing coverages and
maintaining intensity. We were just on the wrong
end of the breaks."
One of those breaks included the departure of
Ail-American guard Dave Dreschler with an ankle
sprain in the third quarter. And with the minutes
slipping away, UNC lost its last chance for a come-
back when Rich Kraynak intercepted an Elkins'
pass at the UNC 31.
"I told the players it's going to the wire, a dog
fight all the way,". Fazio said. "It sure was."
Pitt's win gives the team a rather rickety founda
tion for its place at the pinnacle of the polls. But
the alphfa of UNC's season hasn't necessarily
turned out to be the omega as well. . ,
"There was a one-point difference. We played
on equal terms," Crum said. "If they're No. 1
we're not far behind.

The Media Board selected Sarah Klemmer as the new
editor of The Phoenix in a closed session Wednesday
night. Klemmer is the second new editor to take over
management of the publication in less than a month.
Klemmer, a pre-med major from Chappaqua, N.Y.,
will replace Janet Grady, who had been acting editor since
the resignation of Phil Galanes Aug. 12. Grady previously
served as managing editor of The Phoenix.
Klemmer and Grady were the only two applicants for
the editor position. Each was required to submit a resume,
a cover letter and three letters of recommendation to the
Media Board. Both Klemmer and Grady were interviewed
individually by the board on Wednesday night.
The board had a difficult time deciding between the two
applicants because both were extremely well qualified,
Media Board Chairman Joe Cannady said. "It's a unique
situation to have two qualified people applying for the
position," he said. "Usually one person has some type of
prime experience that distinguishes them from the others,
but in this case both candidates had good qualifications. It
was a very tough decision to make."
Although Cannady served as business manager for The
Phoenix for two years before becoming chairman of the
Media Board, he said he saw no conflict of interest in
choosing a new editor for the publication. In accordance
with the Media Board by-laws, Cannady did not take part
in the voting for the selection process.
Klemmer1 s appointment has generated some controver
sy among members of The Phoenix staff.
"I was shocked and disappointed by the Media Board's
. decision," said Ken Siman, a contributing editor for the
publication. "Janet has spent so much time and effort as
both managing editor and editor of The Phoenix, and
now she's going to be replaced by someone who hasn't
even stepped foot in this office this semester."
Siman added that although he had no hard feelings
towards Klemmer, he would probably take some time off
from The Phoenix to decide whether or not to continue
Contributing editor Jan Williams said that one reason
for Grady's defeat may have been that she was too busy
working on The Phoenix to prepare a campaign for the
editor's position. "Janet was too busy trying to put out
the paper to worry about the political ramifications of an
editorship," Williams said. "I'm not angry because Sarah
won, but because Janet didn't get it," she added. "The
work Janet did for the paper was just amazing. She did an
absolutely phenomenal job."
Grady said she did not know and "won't ever know the
reasoning behind the Media Board's decision. However, I
feel that Sarah is quite capable."
Grady said she wanted to make the transition as easy as
possible for Klemmer, and would leave The Phoenix for
the next three or four issues. v
"I'm not sure what my responsibilities will be when and
if I do come back," Grady said. "I'd like to do some
writing or work in some other capacity at The Phoenix.
on graduate student
' The writers and staff of The Phoenix may find it dif
ficult to adjust to a new editor, Klemmer said. "The
Phoenix has very dedicated writers motivated by the same
force: putting out the paper." Klemmer said she did not
anticipate any problems because the staff would be work
ing towards a common goal.
; Klemmer left The Phoenix last semester to devote more
time to her studies. "I was studying for the MCAT, and
had other burdens as well. I wasn't able to give enough
time to The Phoenix" Klemmer said. "But that's all
behind me now." ; 1
Best seller author uses running for health, hobby
By LINDA ROBERTSON
Jim Fixx first achieved national prominence thanks to
his left leg. It's that tan, muscular one wearing a bright red
Tiger running shoe, bounding across the cover of The
Complete Book of Running. People found out what the
rest of him looked like when they saw him on television,
running by the Eiffel Tower in the American Express
"You may not know my face," he could've said, "but
you've probably seen my leg before."
But people met the real James F. Fixx by reading his
best-seller, which has sold one million copies in hardcover
and has been translated into 15 languages. The Complete
Book of Running is more than a how-to manual or the
typical vacuous summary of a sports phenomenon. Fixx
was writing about something much larger.
"I think the whole running boom says some profound
things about what Americans think of themselves," Fixx
said by phone from his Riverside, Conn., home. "Health
has become each person's own responsibility. Your diet, .
exercise and well-being are entirely up to you now,
whereas we used to let things go until the doctor said
something. Running's popularity is a symptom of a big
charge in attitude."
Fixx's book was published in late 1977, at the crest of
the running wave.
"It came along and fed an interest," he said. "When
people chronicle the history of the running movement,
they always ate my book, oui i uou't know about that.
It's like saying Frank Shorter's win at the 1972 Olympics
had the greatest impact on marathoning. You can't at
tribute something so vast to one event or one
Fixx started running 15 years ago. He had been a
serious tennis player. After pulling a calf muscle, he took
up running to prevent future injuries, but because of the
unexpected positive side effects and benefits of running,
he never stopped. Now he runs about 10 miles a day and
races every few weeks.
' ' '
Fixx can sympathize with runners at both ends of the
spectrum, the frustrated beginners and the stale veteran.
"If you can run two or thre miles, you're in pretty good
shape, and I just tell people to keep going at it at a com
fortable pace," he said. "Runners bored with competition
or their routine can always back off. Sometimes it's fun
just to train hard. If you vary what you're doing go dif
ferent places, run with different people enthusiasm
usually returns." '
The subculture that has sprung up around ninning also
has its share of fanatics, those whose conversations center
on lap times, running shoes and carbohydrate-loading.
"At first .the thrill of running can make you quite
obsessed," Fixx said. "Some people go off the deep end.
You should metabolize it into your life so it's not so pervasive.
"Running is the simplest sport around. You don't need
lots of skill or equipment. I have no basis for saying runn
ing is better overall exercise than swimming or cycling, but
hot everybody has a pool or bicycle handy."
Fixx, a former editor at Saturday Review, Life and Mc
Call's, never dreamed his book would sell so well. He said
financial success wasn't the only surprise.
"I felt gratified for being able to do some good for peo
ple. I've received lots of letters from heart attack victims
who have a new lease on life because of some kind of run
ning program," Fixx said. "My father died at age 43, so I
get personal satisfaction out of helping people avoid that
Fixx's newest book, Jackpot!, is an autobiographical
report on his encounter with the "Great American Fame
"I have never been a very trendy person or very in
terested in (being a) celebrity,'.' he said. "I like to go to
bed early, run, sit quietly in my room and work, spend
time with my family. All the publicity was strange, but,
really, the main way my life changed was that I now spend
more time on planes and in airports. Other than that, it's
pretty normal. I do give lots of clinics and make lots of
speeches, but that's fun.''
On Sunday Fixx will hold a pre-run clinic at 3 p.m.,
followed by a 3-mile Prediction Run and a 5-mile run. In
terested runners of all levels should sign up at the Union
.desk. Monday night Fixx will speak in Memorial Hall.
Tickets are on sale at the desk.

The State Bureau of Investigation is
looking into charges made by a UNC stu
dent that she was assaulted by a University
policeman Aug. 13 at an undisclosed loca
tion on campus.
' UNC graduate student Janet Marie
Heinsler issued charges of assault against
Officer Rodney Carter of the University
police on Aug. 30. He was arrested the
next day and subsequently released on an
unsecured $200 bond.
The warrant for Carter's arrest stated
that he assaulted and struck Heinsler by
grabbing and holding her and kissed her
several times against her wishes.
Dan Gilbert, supervising agent for the
SBI, said only that charges had been filed
and an investigation was under way at the
request of both the Orange County
District Attorney's office and Robert Sher
man, the director of Security Services
"We will conduct the investigation and
provide the district attorney with a copy of
our report,'' Gilbert said. "There is no
time set for completion of the investiga
Neither Carter nor Heinsler could be
reached for comment Thursday afternoon.
Carter, who has worked for the Univer
sity police department for 2Vz years, is on
vacation. Sherman said the" vacation "was
not a sudden move. ,
"Normally our officers schedule vaca

"He should be returning in the next couple
of weeks. This had nothing to do with any
Sherman also said Carter had not been
in trouble before.
"I've been here two years and know of
no situations where it has been necessary
to discipline him before."
Frederic Schroeder, director of the
department of student life, would not
discuss the case, saying it would "not be
appropriate" for him to comment.
Carl R. Fox, an assistant district at
torney, said he could not comment on
Carter's case until the SBI investigation
UNC graduate student Jeffrey Clayton
Slagle, listed on the warrant as a witness
for Carter's arrest, said he did not know
why he was called as a witness.
"Carter's defense lawyer and the
University police contacted me while I was
working at Wilson Library about an event
that occurred on Aug. 13. I saw nothing
that happened or supposedly happened,"
Carter is scheduled to appear on Sept.
16 in District Court on the assault charge.
The verdict of that case will determine his
future as an officer for the campus police,
"When Officer Carter returns to work
will depend on this investigation," he said.
"If he is found innocent, then it would be
