The good news is that college students
shouldn't have to worry about large
losses in financial aid for the coming
But proposed federal cuts in financial
assistance for medical education and stu
dent loans, in addition to budget cuts to
the UNC system by the state, may have
great impact in the future, several campus
State officials say the federal govern
ment probably will not cut student aid
funds before school opens this fall, but
are not sure if Congress will agree to more
cuts in the following year, 1984-85.
"Federal (student) aid cuts are not
necessarily a timely issue now. It's not
something that's going to change by next
week," Eleanor Morris, director of Stu
dent Aid here at UNC, said.
Stan Broadway, director of the North
Carolina Education Assistance Authori
ty, said his agency expected the same level
of funding for 1983-84 as for last year in
the area of loans.
Unfortunately, President Reagan's re
cent budget indicates that he wants stu-,
dents and their parents to contribute a
larger percentage of the cost of a college
education, Broadway said.
One proposal to remove $67.6 million
from four assistance programs, the
Health Education Assistance Loans,
Health Professions Student Loans, Ex
ceptional Financial Need Scholarships
and National Health Service Corps
Scholarships, may mean that qualified
low- and middle-income students would
miss out on medical school.
Kathy Bartlett, the media relations
coordinator for the UNC Medical Center
Public Affairs, said the ef fecf of 'such"
legislation on the UNC School of
Medicine was not certain, but that finan
cial aid was a very sensitive subject for the
school at this time. '.
Bartlett stated that a policy statement
which will be released by the School of
Medicine soon deals with this subject.
Although UNC is now one of the most
affordable schools for those who wish to

Heels triumph in the
Omni over Ga. Tech
By LINDA ROBERTSON
ATLANTA The irony was palpable
from the start when the two stars ex
changed a quick handshake on the -sidelines
before the opening tipoff. This
was Atlanta's cavernous Omni, 10
minutes from the campus of the Georgia
Institute of Technology, but fans voiced
just as much admiration for UNC as for
Tech. Yes, they wanted to see Mark Price,
the freshman who can't miss. But they
had to admit Michael Jordan's presence
had something to do with their presence
Wednesday night when UNC beat Tech
"I'm a season ticket-holder," one man
said, "but I'm really here to watch the
number one and number two scorers in
the ACC a freshman and a sopho
more.' Price didn't waste any time, scoring
first from 17 feet. But he was silent for
the rest of the half and missed seven
shots. Tech's catalyst only hit seven of 25
for the game.
"Being outplayed . and outskilled are
two different things. Tonight we got
outplayed and that's not good," Tech
coach Bobby Cremins said, "I was hop
ing Mark could get hot in the second half,
but Mark just wasn't sharp tonight."
Neither was UNC during the schizo
phrenic first half. After running out to a
22-9 lead by capitalizing on Tech's ag
gressive play and six team fouls, the Tar
Heels failed to score for almost five
minutes. The frustration really showed
when UNC missed a shot and, during the
ensuing rebound scramble, three tip-in
chances before Brad Daugherty was called
for a foul.
Warren Martin, who started in place of
an injured Daugherty, ended the drought
with a three-foot hook. UNC led at
halftime 32-27 despite shooting only 36
percent from the field.
That first half lapse brought up the
bothersome question of UNC's con
sistency. Or lack thereof.
"People make too much of our sup
posed streakiness," Coach Dean Smith
said. "A very demanding schedule has
had more to do with our wins and losses

than our overall play. I think we've been
gradually improving all along."
UNC rapidly improved with the start
of the second half when Jordan sank a
three-point shot from the left baseline.
Those anxious for an ACC shooting dual
watched as Price struggled and Jordan
In his first dunk of the evening Jordan
moved toward the basket as if ascending
an invisible staircase. Price was taken out
of the chase by va wayward referee. His
next shot was an air ball.
After a 10-foot Jordan jumper that
made the score 53-36, Martin fouled out
with 10 points and four rebounds.
Daugherty came in and promptly scored
five. Sam Perkins dominated the board.
The Tar Heels were clicking again.
"Jordan got the hothand and we put a
lot of pressure on Price," Matt Doherty
said. "Price is filling a role that requires
him to take a lot of shots he might not
want to take." Jordan extended UNC's
lead to 23 with a steal and dunk off Price.
: "I wish everyone wouldn't make such
a big deal about the conference scoring ti
tle. This wasn't a game between Michael
and I," Price said. "I'm not trying to
take anything away from Carolina, but
without Perkins and Jordan, they'd be
down here with the rest of us."
Price sank the parting shot, a 20-footer
to close the final gap to twelve.
"Mark is a great scorer, but he's also a
good passer with lots of court savvy,"
Jordan said. "We both know it doesn't
matter if you score 46 or four, the game is
between two teams."
Despite their love of celebrities, fans
know it too.

on tee increase
By MARK STINNEFORD
Students again will have the opportunity
to vote on whether their Student Activity
Fee should be increased.
The Campus Governing Council voted
unanimously Thursday night to approve a
student body referendum on a proposal to
raise the activity fee by $1.25 per semester.
No date was set for the referendum.
The student body voted on a fee in
crease referendum Feb. 8, but the vote was
thrown out by the Student Supreme Court
because the CGC did not-allow enough
time between approving the referendum
and presenting it to the students:
According to the Student Constitution,
no referendum can be held less than a
week after approval by the CGC. The
original fee referendum bill was passed by
the CGC on Feb. 2, only six days before it
was voted on by students.
Before an activity fee increase can be
enacted, it must receive a two-thirds ma
jority vote in a student body referendum.
And at least 20 percent of the student body
must cast votes in the referendum, accord
ing to the Student Government Code.
CGC member Steve Reinhard (District
1) said he doubted that the required
number of students would vote in a fee in
"Even if we put in all the time, money
and effort (to hold a referendum), I don't
think we could get this passed. I don't
think 20 percent of the students would
come out," Reinhard said.

WASHINGTON The House Ways
and Means Committee rejected President
Reagan's recommendation Wednesday
'and approved a bipartisan plan providing
up to 10 additional weeks of unemploy

benefits or who become eligible after April
1 could receive up to eight additional
weeks of assistance, to a maximum of 63
weeks in states hardest hit by the recession.
For those who already have lost their
benefits, the extra 10 weeks would mean
an overall total of 65 weeks. Workers in
states where the recession has not hit as
hard would receive less than 10 additional
$21,000 from the General Reserve fund to
add to the $240,000 it anticipated receiving
through student fees during the year,
Droze said. The financial situation will be
about the same during the next fiscal year,
The General Reserve, which currently
stands at about $58,000, consists of activi
ty fees received by the CGC each year that
are not spent.
The ravages of inflation have made the
fee increase imperative, said CGC member
Tim Newman (District 11). Newman said
that prices Tiave risen 35 percent "since the
last fee increase.
"Because of it, we've had to cut and cut
and cut," Newman said.
Failure to approve a referendum would
actually be a vote to cut fees, said CGC
member Ron Everett (District 13).
"To leave the fees as they are is a
decrease in real dollars," Everett said.
