No. 3 Tar Heels
in College Park
By S.L. PRICE
COLLEGE PARK, Md. Herman Veal and the
Maryland Terrapins, in a six-point hole, dug deep within
themselves and found the one factor that had been missing
all during their Jekyll-Hyde season.
"Pride is what it's all about," Veal said. "We dug down
deep in ourselves and pulled out our pride.
Thus the team that this season had beaten then No. 1
UCLA, and beaten Notre Dame, the same team that lost to
Duke by 19 points on its own floor, outmuscled North
Carolina in the second half to give the Tar Heels a 106-94
"This ball club never ceases to amaze me," Maryland
coach Lefty Driesell said.
Coming into the second half down 46-40, The Terrapins
then exploded and amazed everyone, outscoring North
Carolina in the first 10 minutes.
Maryland picked up the momentum and never let it go.
It was the game that Driesell and company had been
waiting for ever since Maryland lost 72-71 to the Tar Heels
on a Jim Braddock three-pointer with time running out.
It was Jeff Adkins, with his career-high 25 points and his
six assists, popping in jumpers from all over the court.
It was freshman Len Bias, 11 points and five rebounds,
alley-ooping with a back-scratching dunk to put the Terps up
And it was Veal who during halftime answered Driesell's
call for someone to shut down Michael Jordan, who scored
15 points in the first 20 minutes.. ,
Veal held Jordan to 10 points in the second half, and,
Driesell said, "got on Jordan like white on rice."
Maryland center Ben Coleman, 22 points, six rebounds on
the night, opened the Terrapin rally with a whirling right
handed hook to make it 48-44, UNC.
After a tussle under the Maryland boards between Sam
Perkins, Jordan and Coleman, Maryland's Adrian Branch
came up with the ball and tossed in a three-point shot to br
ing the game up by one.
An Adkins steal, a Bias'ed finger on a Perkins jump shot,
and the Terps were off to the races, picking up second shots
and boxing out the well-balanced attack.
With the score 74-58 with 8:32 left in the game, Bias was
already smiling and giving thumbs up to the Maryland
crowd. He knew. At one point Maryland led North Carolina
The Tar Heels made a run, but could never close the gap to
less than nine points.
It was the first time that Maryland had beaten UNC since
1980, after five straight losses
"We beat them up entirely," Veal said.
"That was by far the worst beating we've taken all year,"
UNC coach Dean Smith said. "Maryland deserved to win
they outhustled us and outquicked us."

The Chapel Hill Transportation Board
recommended adoption Tuesday night of
the controversial thoroughfare plan for
Chapel Hill and Carrboro. But the board
attached a number of conditions to their
recommendations, which include moving
the Parker Road extension that would
pass through University property used for
Considering criticism received at a
public hearing on Jan. 31, the board
recommended moving the Parker Road
extension about one-half mile south of
the originally proposed extension. But
Transportation Planner Danny Pleasant
opposed changing the original proposal.
He said that moving the extension farther
south would significantly increase the
cost of the extension.
, Conservationists and graduate students
who value the preservation of Mason

board's new recommendation.
"We weren't entirely pleased that they

road farther to the south," said Steve
Hall, a biology graduate student who uses
Mason Farm for research. Hall said the

HaU also said that moving the Parker
Road extension even farther south would
actually be less expensive because it could
use more of the existing roadway.
Robert Smythe, conservation director
for the Triangle Sierra Club, said that
Pleasant was ignoring the concerns of
residents and the University by not con
sidering an alternate route farther south
of Mason Farm.
"I think the planning staff is being pig
headed about this," Smythe said. "This
is not an acceptable solution as far as the
Sierra Club is concerned."

eagan urges action in proposed jobs bill
The Associated Press
WASHINQTON President Reagan said Wednesday
night that the American economy "has begun to flex its
muscles," but urged quick congressional action on a jobs
bill he said would provide work without worsening budget
Reagan said the plan he advocates is a compromise, not
"another quick fix" jobs plan. He said Congress should
pass it and have it ready for his signature in March.
It includes $4 billion in accelerated spending on federal
construction and repair projects, which Reagan said
would create up to 470,000 jobs; $2.9 billion in sup
plementary unemployment insurance; and $300 million in
relief for jobless Americans in dire need.
The president said it all would be consistent with his
basic economic recovery plan. "It funds no make-work
jobs," he said.
"Instead we're speeding up projects that are already
planned and needed."
Nor, he said, would it increase projected budget
Reagan opened his news conference by pointing to im
proving economic indicators. "As a result of the economic
program we already have in place, the recovery has begun
to flex its muscles," he said.
Turning to questions, Reagan said, "I certainly do"
when asked if he retains confidence in his embattled En
vironmental Protection Agency chief, Anne M. Gorsuch.
Despite congressional complaints that the agency has
faltered in administering the "superfund" program to

Competition for out-of-state spaces at
UNC has become so keen that the typical
out-of-state student has an SAT score
between 1280 and 1300 and is in the top 1
percent to 2 percent of his high school
"I believe we've turned down students
who've been accepted at Harvard or Yale.
That hurts," said Kenneth Reckford, a
classics professor and member of the
Chancellor's Advisory . Committee on
Undergraduate Admissions. "We're
turning down some very gifted students."
University admissions officials estimate
that the competition will get even rougher
because a rising number of students ap
plying for out-of-state are accepted in
special categories and do not compete by
out-of-state academic standards.
Last year, approximately 300 of the
480 out-of-state spaces reserved in the
freshman class were taken up by special
categories such as the children of alumni,
athletes, drama and music standouts, and
Morehead and ROTC scholars, said Tony
Strickland, assistant director of under
Over 5,200 students applied to UNC
from outside the state last year. This
figure does not include out-of-state stu
dents whose parents are alumni. Overall,
roughly 11,800 students competed for
nearly 3,200 spaces in the freshman class.
The largest increase in out-of-state
applicants who receive special considera
tion has been the children of alumni. Al
though out-of-state children of alumni
pay the extra $1,710 tuition and are in-

thern belles becoming hard to find at
By KIMBERLY KLEMAN
Second of three parts on UNC as seen by
various elements of the community.
Senior Ellie Jeffers says she's seen so many
Southern Belles while growing up in the South
that she can describe the type with little hesita
tion. "She's hunting for a husband,- sweet,
genteel, subservient, submissive, domestic, inno
cent, naive . . . you get the idea."
Yet to find the Southern Belle at this university
is becoming increasingly difficult, say female
faculty and students here; more and more,
Southern women see themselves as serious
students intent on careers.
"Southern women take themselves very
seriously here," said Carolyn Jones, a graduate
student in religion and a North Carolina native.
"In fact, these women seem to be on more of a
track than men are. They have a goal in mind.
They know what they're going to do and are on a
track to do it."
Bonnie ' Fass, president of the Panhellenic
Council, said the change in attitude is an ongoing
one among women here. "The Southern woman
student playing the role of being submissive
I've seen less and less of it in four years," she
said. "I think we're very serious about studies;
everyone now is so concerned about grades. In
fashions, too, we're coming' out of the
stereotype; I see less pink and green every year." .
Women who want to be treated like serious
students, are, Jeffers said. "It depends on the
woman. If women students aren't taken serious
ly, it's because they are not serious students, not
because they're women," she said.
The burden of proof of this seriousness,
however, often rests with the woman, said Jane
Mathews, director of the Women's Studies pro
gram. "I think professors are often surprised
when it turns out that the cute, 19-year-old boun
cy blonde is highly intelligent, able to. think
critically and has plans for a non-traditional
career," she said.
Jackie Hall, associate professor of history, said
the idea of women as serious students is not
necessarily contrary to traditional conceptions of
women. Women have more qualities necessary to
be taken as a good student, she said. "In school
life, you can get by, being very conscientious,
taking notes and' being deferential. These are
qualities associated with women."
To succeed in a career, women must assume a
different attitude toward their work and
themselves and strive to achieve more than what
they're told to do, Mathews said. In the working
world "it's an altogether different ball game,"
As a product of the women's movement of the
1970s, career orientation among university
women has become ainationwide trend. Yet for
Southern university women in particular, the at
titude is achieved only after bucking a rather for
midable obstacle Southern tradition.
See related story on page 4
"Southern women come out of a more tradi
tional culture," Mathews said. "Traditional
ideas regarding women's roles and expectations
are stronger here than is the case elsewhere."
Moreover, Southern men who develop relation
ships with these women often hold traditional ex
pectations of women, she said.
Yet contrary, to these traditional expectations,
aggressiveness and assertiveness are often called
for in the working world, Hall said. "If you con
tinue to have nurturing qualities, you're not a
business person in men's eyes," she said. "Yet if
you're aggressive, you're not a woman."
Southern women at UNC are often torn be
tween career goals and traditional conceptions of
women, said Susie Post, a junior from Salisbury.
In trying to incorporate both goals, sometimes
their actions appear contradictory. "I see girls
who want careers. Yet it's some of these same
girls that really want to go out with guys that
treat them like Southern Belles."
ironically, the nearer college women come to
realizing career goals, the more afraid they
become, Jones said. Marriage is sometimes a
"In the South, men have a good-old-boy net
work," she said. "For men, that's the way to get
a job. For women, there hasn't been that sort of
a thing. So sometimes marriage becomes a buffer
between college and the outside world."
Marriage is the only goal of college for some
UNC women, Jeffers said. "The M.R.S. degree
is still as true now as it was 20 years ago," she
said. "The only difference is that you could ad
mit it then."
Mathews said her students report the same
thing to her. "They tell me there are women who
come here . essentially to get their M.R.S.
degree," she said. "But the students I've gotten
to know don't fall into that category."
Fass predicts that women who want a career
and a family will have a hard time maintaining
both. "I want to go to medical school, and I
want very much to get married and have a fami
ly," she said. "It's hard to do; you really have to
sacrifice career time."
To include marriage in plans is nothing to be
ashamed of, Fass said. "Marriage is not such a
bad goal, but it shouldn't be the only goal," she
Women faculty often serve in showing women
students an alternate goal, said Ann Hall, asso
ciate professor of English. "Students really need
to see women faculty here," she said. "It helps
them to see that there are more choices than be
A passive attitude among women at the Uni
versity is still evident by the lack of women in
leadership positions, Jackie Hall said. "When we
move into campus politics, we see the dynamics
of the social world played out at vengeance," she
said. "I'm amazed at the degree women don't
Carolyn Kindell, a junior from Sea Level,
N.C., agreed. "The public figures here are most
ly male," she said. "Though I firmly believe
women today are breaking out, running for stu
dent body president would still be a pretty big
thing," she said.
