UNC pitcher Brad Powell has been
asleep now since Feb. 19.
Snoozing away with an occasional
sleepwalking tangent across right field
to keep his body in shape, Powell has
been dreaming ever since his first win
over Baptist College back during the
cold of winter. And he was lulled into
slumberland by the sound of Tar Heel
bats pounding leather.
You see, the UNC batters have
averaged more than seven runs a game
en route to a 16-2 record and a No. 14
national ranking by Baseball America
magazine. And for Powell, and the en
tire North Carolina pitching staff, that
"It's like pitching in a dream,"
Powell said. "Chances are when you
go out there, you're going to win nine
times out of ten.
"Last year we were worried about
giving up one run. This year, you don't
lose any self-esteem if you give it up."
Tuesday at Boshamer Stadium,
Powell didn't have to worry about
anything. He gave up just six hits and
struck out eight in a complete game ef
fort to lead the Tar Heels to a bruising
18-2 win over the University of Con
necticut. And any thought of losing his self
esteem was already banished by the
bottom of the fourth inning, when
UNC had collected 11 runs on 11 hits
to take an 11-1 lead.
It was a hot day filled with hot bats.
North Carolina first baseman Pete
Kumiega hitting .371 went
3-for-4 at the plate, including a two-run
home run blast over the right-center
Kumiega, more relaxed at bat this
season because he is not the sole power
hitter on the team, acknowledges the
fact that this lineup has more potential
than Duke Power.
"I don't have to come in day in and
day out and go 3-for-4," Kumiega said.
"Someone else comes through."
Maybe B.J. Surhoff. The freshman
catcher-right fielder, currently hitting a
torrid .424, went 2-for-5 Thursday, in
cluding a home run to seal the Huskies'
fate in the fourth inning.
Or maybe Jeff Hubbard, who leads
the team with a .444 batting average
and has yet to make an error at third
base. Hubbard went 2-for-4 with two
Or second baseman Mike Jedziniak,
second on the team with a .429
average. Or left fielder Jon O'Leary,
.342, or designated hitter Drex Roberts,
.338. Or senior center fielder Greg
Schuler, with a .3(Xj batting'average.
The team is that strong. And the
confidence level at Boshamer Stadium
has soared right up the flagpole.
"When we come out on the field,"
Surhoff said, "we expect to win. We
. don't .hope n.v-a.-
Expectations were fulfilled early
Tuesday as Kumiega opened with a
rolling single up the middle. After

RALEIGH The North Carolina
Senate unanimously passed the Safe
Roads Act Tuesday but not before com-'
pletely eliminating Gov. Jim Hunt's dram
The final version of the bill, which has
been under senate scrutiny for two mon
ths, will be sent to the house for final con
sideration before it can become law.
After a last-minute debate, the senate
voted ovemhelmingly to eliminate an
amendment to reintroduce dram shop
proposals. The dram shop proposal
would hold bars and stores responsible
for accidents caused by people who had
been served alcohol while already intox
icated. ' After long study of the bill, many
senators felt that inclusion of the dram
shop proposal would slow up the bill's fur
ther progress through the legislature.
Sen. Robert Swain, D-Buncombe, said
it would be "overloading the wagon" to
leave this section in the bill.
Under the bill, the minimum age for
purchasing beer and wine would be raised
to 19, while the age for buying liquor
would remain at 21.
Also under the bill, drivers who
register .10 or higher on a breathalyzer
test, or who are considered intoxicated by
a law enforcement officer but refuse to
take a Breathalyzer test, would receive an
on-the-spot 10-day suspension of their
driver's . Ucenses. . , ; . ,
This last measure was heatedly debated
on the senate floor minutes before the
bill's passing. Sen. . Dennis Winner,
D-Buncombe, who sponsored an unsuc
cessful amendment to abolish the
automatic suspension, charged that it
violates the most fundamental right of a
citizen: a person's right to be considered
innocent until proven guilty.
"A driver's license is not a right. It's a
privilege," Winner said. "But there must
be due judicial process before one can be

Gov. Jim Hunt
Gov. Hunt said after yesterday's senate
session that he was very pleased with the
legislative action, adding that North
Carolinians should be proud of their
senate for unanimously supporting
toughened drunken driving laws.
The bill now goes to the state House of
Representatives. Sen. Henson Barnes,
D-Wayne, sponsor of the Senate bill and
floor manager luring the lengthy debate,
said he hoped it would reach the House
floor this week.
At I'm glad it's finally going over
there," said Barnes, who was applauded
by his Senate colleagues and com
plimented by Lt. Gov. Jimmy Green after
the vote. "I'm happy with what we have.
It's basically like I wanted it to be."
Hunt said in a prepared statement that
North Carolinians "have cause to be
proud of their state Senate for its over
whelming vote Tuesday to give, our state
the toughest and most comprehensive
drunken driving law in the nation."
"I am confident the legislature will
soon complete its work on the Safe Roads
Act of 1983 and put these vitally impor
tant protections for our people into law,"
of tax assessment on
Four sexual assaults
By PAUL COCKE
It's that time of year when many people eagerly await
their tax refund checks from the Internal Revenue Service.
UNC wants a refund from the IRS too, in the amount of
$3.8 million. .
During the mid-1970s, UNC sold its ownership of the
telephone, electric and water utilities it operated in Chapel
Hill to Duke Power, Southern Bell and the Orange Water
and Sewer Authority.
The IRS assessed UNC a $3,825,355 tax on the sale of
the utilities, as well as on operating income derived from
the utilities and operation of the Carolina Inn, said Farris
Womack, UNC vice chancellor for business and finance.
"The IRS maintains the operation of the utilities were
unrelated, business income," Womack said, adding that
the University position is that the utilities were part of the
University, which is a tax-exempt institution.
"Without the utilities, the University could not have
functioned," he said.
UNC is now planning legal action to recover the tax
assessment, which it has already paid, Womack said.
"When the utilities were sold, we reserved a part of the
amount as a reserve against potential tax liability. Now we
will shortly ask that this be refunded," Womack said.
"Under the law, the income from the utilities is
exempt," said Newman A. Townsend Jr., a Raleigh at
torney who is representing the University in its dispute
; with the IRS. -
Townsend said the IRS assessment was based. on in
come the University realized from operation of the utilities
from 1970 to 1979 and from sale of the utilities, which he
said amounted to approximately $40 million.
The IRS claims the University made a profit beyond the
worth of the utilities and this profit, to the IRS, con
stitutes "business income" not related to educational pur
poses, Townsend said.
"An exempt institution is taxable for unrelated business
income, but this was not the case with the sale of the
utilities," Townsend said.
"We will shortly file suit," Townsend said, adding that
the University's position looked good. He did not rule out
the possibility of an out-of-court settlement with the IRS, .
but said that decision would be up to University officials. "
Womack said the operation of the Carolina Inn was
part of the IRS assessment, but is not now at issue because
of depreciation allowances. -
William J. Milling Jr., director of the Carolina Inn, said
most of the Inn's profits go toward refurbishing and
maintaining the building, which was donated to the
University by the John Sprunt Hill family in 1935. Any
money left over is given to University libraries, particular
ly the North Carolina Collection, he said.
The Carolina Inn, which serves University meeting,
banquet and temporary housing needs, is not state-funded
but receives all of its operating expenses from the money it
takes in for food and lodging, Milling said.
IRS officials handling the tax assessment dispute with
the University could not be reached for comment.
reported last week
Why there are ads on the
By now you should have noticed that
besides ads, there hasn't been too much
to read in the Daily Tar Heel lately. For
example, this editor's note would have
gone on the editorial page, but there
wasn't even room back there.
The DTH doesn't print four-page
papers because the staff wants to. With
more than 50 reporters working here, we
could easily fill eight- to 10-page papers
each day. As it now stands, editors have
to hold back well-written stories on cam
pus, local, state and sports news. So, the
next time you complain because a group
wasn't covered, just try to imagine what
the editor . went through telling the
reporter that what he had written
wouldn't be printed.
The real reason the DTH prints four
page papers is actually quite simple.
There isn't enough money to print a
larger paper. The paper's size is deter
mined by the amount of advertising
revenue for that day. If the revenue's not
there, we can't afford to print a larger
paper. For example, a four-page paper
costs about $1,200 to print, a six-page
paper costs $1,500. If the paper has
$ 1 ,200 in revenue we would lose $300 by
publishing six pages.
The advertising staff has done well in
trying to bring more money to the paper.
Since 1977, advertising revenues have in
creased by about 60 percent, and now
make up $300,000 of our $400,000 an
nual budget. That's student advertising
representatives generating three-fourths
of the DTH budget.
The rest of our revenue for the most
part comes from you. We receive 16 per
cent of the student activities fees
about $75,000. You pay $2.44 a semester
for the DTH. That hasn't increased since
The DTH spends this money wisely.
Each dollar we now receive is accounted
for in reports to the board of directors,
made up of students and faculty mem
bers. We do not throw wild parties with
student fees. Editors receive salaries that
amount to about 25 cents an hour. And
only the editor, photography editor and
full-time employees, such as our business
manager, have parking stickers.
In the past few years, the DTH has
tried to reduce costs by cutting back on
newspaper subscriptions and virtually
eliminating any copy machine use.
The DTH will continue to strive to
reduce costs. But the bottom line is that
the paper needs more money. Without it,
four-page papers will not only continue,
but they will probably appear more
The editorial staff has agreed that with
four-page papers the free student services
such as the Campus Calendar and job
boxes will have to be eliminated on those
days. The credkvord puzzle is next on the
list. The DTH is committed to providing
these services to students, but in a four
page paper, there just isn't enough
The DTH has a tradition of service to
the University. We are proud of that
tradition and fighting to continue it. We
only want you to understand the reasons
behind small papers. When you pick up
the next four-page paper, throw it on the
ground, and curse the DTH staff, just
remember one thing: There are about 20
people sitting in the Student Union, who
feel much, much worse.
