Two Campus Governing Council members Thursday
announced their intention to challenge the funding of
the Black Student Movement Gospel Choir before the
Student Supreme Court, arguing that the choir is a
. Steve Reinhard (District 1) arid Allan Rosen (District
7) said they will present an official complaint to Student
Supreme Court Chief Justice J.B. Kelly today.
Under a recently-passed amendment to the Student
Constitution, Student Government may not fund
organizations, activities or events of a political nature.
The bill regulating the CGC budget process also pro
hibits funding of religious or political groups.
"Reinhard and Rosen's complaint "will seek'atHperma
nent injunction preventing the student body treasurer,
the BSM treasurer and the BSM Gospel Choir treasurer,
from appropriating any funds intended for the choir's
funding to be challenged
use, Reinhard said.
Reinhard and Rosen led an unsuccessful attempt to
deny funding to the choir at the April 16 CGC meeting in
which the 1983-84 Student Government budget was
finalized. , .
The CGC has approved a $1,700 budget for the choir
Because the majority of the music it performs is
gospel, the choir has a religious orientation, Reinhard
"As a person not believing in the Christian faith, I
find it extremely offensive to use public monies to fund a
group professing Jesus Christ," Reinhard said at the
April 16 CGC meeting.
BSM President Sherrod Banks declined to comment
on the issue Thursday. ; ,
But CGC Finance Chairman' Doc Droze (District 22)
said he believes the BSM Choir is cultural rather than
, religious in nature. .;
"I don't see any problems in the constitutionality of
funding the choir," Droze said.
Reinhard said he did not question the cultural aspects
of the choir.
"They're correct in saying the choir is cultural, but it
is also religious," he said.
Reinhard said he would accept the Supreme Court
decision as the last word on the issue.
"If the Supreme Court finds that this program does
not violate the Student Constitution, I have no qualms
about supporting it," he said. .
"I think it needs to be settled once and for all, and it
will set a precedent for groups seeking funding," he said.
CGC Speaker James Exum (District 15), a member of
the BSM, said he was confident that the Student
Supreme Court would uphold the funding of the choir.
"I'm not really very concerned that the Student
Supreme: Court will overturn the CGC's1 dedsionf be-
said. The court would have to find that the choir is
religious by nature, and that's not the case."

N. C. hanks try to expand in Tenn.
By KYLE MARSHALL
. Staff Writer
Two North Carolina banking firms looking at Tennessee for ex
pansion may not get that opportunity, officials of the two banks
said this week.
NCNB Corp. and First Union Corp., both of Charlotte, are at
tempting to buy US Bank of Nashville and United American
Bank of Chattanooga, respectively. The purchases would allow
the two N.C. banks to expand their commercial banking opera
tions outside the state and would create a better atmosphere for
the future of interstate banking, said Jim Singleton, director of
media relations for First Union National Bank.
But because of state and federal restrictions on interstate bank
ing, the purchases can't be made without the approval of the Ten
nessee General Assembly.
It now appears that NCNB and First Union will have to wait
until at least May 2. Tenn. Rep. Tom Burnette, sponsor of an
amendment that would allow the purchases to be made, said
Wednesday he did not have enough support to pass the amend
ment. Burnette planned to re-introduce the legislation on May 2,
While the N.C. banks have been placed on hold, banking' of
ficials this week commented on the reasons behind the proposed
expansion and on the importance of the actions in the Tennessee
Legislature. ! .
"Purchasing United American of Chattanooga would give us a
stronger presence in Tennessee than we already have," Singleton
said. First Union Corp.. now has mortgage and leasing companies
in Tennessee and other states but cannot establish deposit-taking
operations because of the restrictions.
"Our strongest spread geographically throughout the Southeast
is through Cameron-Brown Mortgage Co. and First Union Mort
gage Co. (two separate subsidiaries of First Union Corp.),"
The NCNB offer came as a result of an agreement initiated by
US Bank. "We were approached by Frank Woods (former presi
dent of US Bank), who offered to sell," said Jim Chandler, direc
tor of corporate communications for NCNB. "We responded
with our offer."
That offer was a $2.1 million exchange of stock, amounting to
90,000 outstanding shares of NCNB common stock for all of US '
NCNB, unlike other N.C. bank companies, has commercial
banking operations in at least one other state. As a result of
Florida legislation passed in 1972, NCNB Corp. was allowed to
continue acquisitions it had initiated before that date. NCNB now
owns four Florida banks.
' NCNB also has leasing and consumer finance companies
throughout the Southeast, Chandler said.
Both officials agreed one reason interstate expansion has been
proposed by NCNB and First Union is the strength of N.C.'s
banking industry, due to the long tradition of statewide banking.
"Statewide branch operations are not permitted in many other
states," Chandler said. "In North Carolina, banks have been able
to branch statewide for a number of years. There's more frag
mentation of the banking industry in other states than in North
Singleton said statewide banking had allowed N.C. banks to
become much stronger in the state. "It's allowed North Carolina

SBI joins in investigations of assaults
By JOEL BROADWAY
The State Bureau of Investigation
joined local law enforcement agencies
earlier this week in an investigation of a
series of five assaults in the past month on
women students who were sleeping in
University or private housing.
SBI agent Dan Gilbert said that the
bureau is actively assisting University,
Chapel Hill and Carrboro police officials
in their investigation of assaults on five
The most recent attempted entry into a
student's room occurred Wednesday
morning in Spencer Residence Hall.
A female resident in Spencer was
awakened early Wednesday morning when
someone attempted Jo enter her room,
The unsuccessful attempt to enter the
locked room was reported at 4:35 a.m.,
said Major C.E. Mauer of the University
Police. Three campus police officers were
immediately dispatched to the scene but
were unable to find anyone, according to
The series of assaults dates back to
March 6 when an attack took place at
Granville Towers, Lt. Arthur Summey of
the Chapel Hill Police Department said.
Local pokce officials also have con
firmed assaults on female students March
10 at Craige Residence Hall, March 5 and
March 12 at a private apartment complex
in Carrboro and Sunday in Hinton James
Residence Hall. .
At 5:00 a.m. Sunday, a female resident
of Hinton James was awakened by some
one trying to enter her room. She notified
University Police, who searched the
building, according to police reports. .
Just 50 minutes later, an unidentified
person entered an unlocked room at Hin
ton James and assaulted a resident of the
room, according to police reports.
Summey said that the local law enforce
ment agencies have little to go on.
"There hasn't been any physical
evidence," Summey said. "There haven't
been any witnesses."
While there have been a number of at
tacks reported in the area, Jody Harpster,
acting director of University Housing, said
that there had only been two attacks in
campus residence halls. He added that
these assaults have riot been rapes.
"The two people whose rooms were
entered here have not been raped," Harp
ster said. "I'm not saying they haven't
been sexually assaulted." .':,
. Harpster explained that any lawyer
could probably prove in court that these
women were sexually assaulted. Police use
the term sexual assault to refer to a victim
who has been, bodily attacked or molested
but not subjected to rape.
' ' Locking dormitory rooms is the most
effective way to prevent such assaults from
occurring, Harpster said.
University Housing sent out letters
Monday to more than 6,800 students in
residence halls urging them to lock their
doors and report any suspicious activity to
University Police, he said.
Harpster said that it is still possible for
anyone to get in a residence hall if they try
"What we have to combat are two
things," Harpster said. "First, people
prop the doors open for whatever
The second reason for the breach of
security in halls is the result of residents'
deliberate actions, Harpster said.
"Most of the violations that occur hap
pen because someone in the building com
promises the situation," Harpster said.
Using Cobb Residence Hall as an exam
ple, he explained the danger in these viola
tions. There are 400 women in Cobb, and
if one of them violates the rules, by letting
someone in her window or letting-someone
sneak out unescorted, she places the whole
dorm in danger, Harpster said.

Maryland third baseman Chris Stark puts tag, hut not ball, on UNC's Jeff Hubbard
. : . North Carolina junior went 3-for-6 at the plate with 2 RBI In Heels' 13-11 win

By S.L. PRICE
Maybe ii was the two guys that had to sit in front of the
scoreboard and hang up numbered cards indicating the
mnmg-by-inning score some sort of throwback to base
ball's past that made it all so strange.
. Maybe it was the blue and red flashing lights of the police
cars on Ridge Road that could be seen beyond the right field
fence for practically the whole game.
Maybe it was the 9-2 lead that the tforth Carolina baseball
team picked up in the third inning and blew by the top of the
Or the three balks. Or the five different pitchers used by
UNC, a team that normally uses two a game for the entire
season. Or the plethora of wild pitches and passed balls.
Whatever the reason, the elements and a tough Maryland
squad made the Tar Heels work overtime for their 13-11 win
over the Terrapins in the second round of the ACC Tourna
ment at Boshamer Stadium Thursday, in a game that started
late, naturally, and ended a long three hours and 32 seconds
later. ' " " ' '
. "We started so late I didn't know what the problem
was. It wasn't an ordinary game," said UNC pitcher Gordan
Douglas,' who pitched five strong innings and notched the
win. "It was just a weird game."
. Probably the weirdest win for North Carolina all season.
Sure, the Tar Heels produced 13 runs on 13 hits a typical
performance for the hit-happy Heels. But they had to do it
without their complete-game ace Brad Powell, who could
only finish 1 23 innings.
Suddenly the normally solid UNC pitching staff looked a
bit uneasy, rsortn Carolina coach Mike Roberts pulled
Powell's replacement left hander Tim Kirk after just
two pitches, and penciled in sophomore Tom Reed.
But even Reed's stuff "wasn't working. Just over a bout
with the flu, Reed could post just one inning, giving up five
runs on five hits while balking twice.
"It was a typical game for last year," said UNC catcher
Tim McGee, who had his best day ever at the plate two
doubles. "It was definitely different for this year."
This year the Tar Heels were used to scoring in the first
inning and .didn't break the tradition Thursday. Third
baseman Jeff Hubbard, who finished 3-for-6 on the day,
reached first on an error by Maryland's Scott Rowe, and
then promptly stole second.
After left fielder B.J. Surhoff grounded out, first baseman
Pete Kumiega hammered a triple high to the center field wall
. to score Hubbard. Kumiega came home when center fielder
Glenn Liacouras 3-for-4, three RBI singled him in.
But unlike many UNC opponents this season, the Terps
didn't die. Maryland responded with two runs off of three
hits in the bottom of the first, setting a pattern for the come
back in the third and fourth, j
In the third, the Tar Heels scored seven runs, cashing in on
Hubbard's single, double and two stolen bases, a pair of
singles from Liacouras and Todd Wilkinson, a Terp error by
right fielder Martin Freeman, and the erratic arm of starter
Mike Romanovsky, who hit two UNC batters.
In the bottom of the third, Maryland blasted Reed, and
the Terps opened the scoring with Tom Weider's home run.
Reed walked Rowe, struck out left fielder Bryan Davenport,
and then gave up a single. Then came the first balk to move
