"TTiey don't swing the bat that well. ".
- Clemson coach Bill.Wilhelm,
after UNC defeated the Tigers
10-1 to win the ACC Tournament
After a tournament weekend plagued by cold
rain and dark clouds, the sun and the Tar Heels
broke open a day made perfect for baseball, and
in the process broke the Tigers.
In a display typical of its entire season, North
Carolina's big bats blasted Clemson pitchers
John Pawlowski and Lynn Martin for four runs
in the sixth inning and four in the seventh,
placing UNC pitcher Scott Bankhead's eighth
straight win out of reach.
Bankhead, who learned to throw the slider in
the fall from pitching coach Howard Mc
Cullough, threw it for strikes Monday, allowing
eight hits in only his second complete college
game and striking out 11.
"It's a tough pitch to throw, but he's so con
sistent," catcher B.J. Surhoff said. "He starts it
off down, and the guy is gearing for a fastball,
and it breaks away," (
Throughout the day, Bankhead kept setting
up the Qemson batters with a fastball-slider,
slider-fastball mix, and because the slider looks
just like a fastball before it breaks at the last
moment, the Tigers couldn't get on track.
To Wilhelm, the reason for the loss was sim
"He kept the ball off the business parts of
our bats," he said.
Clemson scored its solo run in the first inning
after right fielder Ricky Hester walked. Desig
nated hitter Jim McCollum doubled to right
field, and when Todd Wilkinson couldn't get a
handle on the ball, Hester scored. ' ,
The Tar Heels rebounded with a run to tie it
up in the second. Second baseman Mike Jed
ziniak 2-for-5 on the day, 7-for-22 in the
tournament drove a stand-up double to deep
right field and scored on center fielder Glenn
Liacouras' single to right.
For the next three innings both teams strug
gled, with Clemson getting just two runners into
scoring position. Through 5 Vi innings,
Bankhead 'collected eight strikeouts, and
Pawlowski kept the Tar Heels quiet, giving up
one walk after Liacouras' single in the second.
Then North Carolina exploded. And to Pete
Kumiega, the only senior playing on a squad
dominated by the youth movement, it was only
a matter of time..
"It seemed inevitable that we'd blow some
one away in the tournament," said Kumiega,
whose teammates had beaten Duke and
Maryland by two runs each, and Qemson and
Virginia by' one run each before bowing to
Clemson Sunday night, 5-2. : .
"I felt that in this tournament, the close calls
that occurred didn't go our way," he said. "So
it didn't surprise me."
So it was no surprise when Kumiega took
Pawlowski's second pitch in the sixth inning
a fastball and sent it to the left field score
board for his 1 1th home run of the season.

Coretta Scott King, widow of slain
political activist Martin Luther King Jr.,
has sent a letter to UNC officials protest
ing the decision of the UNC political
science department not to reappoint Assis
tant Professor David J. Garrow.
In the two-page letter sent to President
William C. Friday, Chancellor Chris
topher C. Fordham III and Samuel R.
Williamson, dean of the College of Arts
and Sciences, and dated April 18, King
stated that she was concerned that the
study of the Civil Rights Movement is con
sidered unworthy of study by UNC's
political science department.
Political science department Chairman
James W. Prothro decided not to reap
point Garrow after members of. the
political science faculty voted March 21
against Garrow's reappointment.
Garrow's current term ends in 1984.
In a letter to Garrow dated March 23,
Prothro stated that .the recommendation
not to reappoint Garrow was based on
perceptions that Garrow's reseach did not
represent a sufficient level of scholarship,
Garrow met with Moreau and Fordham
field of public law, and that Garrow had
not made a 'contribution to the general
quality and reputation of the department.
King stated in the letter that she felt-,
Garrow's research in civil rights was in the
field of political science.
Steve Cline, communications coor
dinator for the Martin Luther King Jr.
Center for Social Change, said Monday
that King perceived the decision not to
reappoint Garrow as implying that the
University did not feel the study of civil
rights was important.
"We see the Civil Rights Movement as a
major watershed," he said. "It is unfor
tunate when a major university such as
Chapel Hill decides not to have an
acknowledged expert in the field of civil

In a seven-page memo to Prothro dated
April 4, Garrow stated that he believed
that his record in teaching, research and
promoting the reputation of the University
qualified him for reappointment to the
facultyr and that other issues were the
reason for his dismissal. ;
In the memo, Garrow stated, "I am
concerned that unhappiness on your part,
andor on the part of some other senior
department faculty, with my critical be
liefs, opinions, and statements concerning
certain University policies, certain profes
sional and intellectual tendencies in this de
partment, and certain issues raised by your
own governance of the department as
chairman, really plays some significant
part in your present recommendation
David H. Moreau, acting dean of the
College of Arts and Sciences while
Williamson is on leave, met with Garrow
last week to discuss the case. Moreau has
until Friday to recommend . reappoint-
ment, non-reappointment or reconsidera
tion of the decision, according to the

Recently released statistics showing the
grade, distribution among UNC under
graduates show that there is a problem at
the University with grade inflation, says
the University's provost.
. "I see a situation in which too many
high grades are given," Provost Charles
Morrow said of a memo his office released
recently showing the distribution of under
The memo consisted of a chart listing
the percentages of A, B, C, D and F grades
given by the academic departments for the
years 1978 through 1982. The memo also
listed the courses giving the highest percen
tages of A's during the fall 1982 semester
as well as the courses which gave the high
est percentages of C's.
The memo stated that 63.4 percent of all
grades given during the fall semester of
1982 were A's and B's.
"Anybody above that is too high,"
"When the faculty says that everyone is
outstanding, I don't believe it," he said.
"It obscures the accomplishments of the
really outstanding students.
"I'm going to ask the deans to try to
lower the percentage of A and B grades in
the departments that have a particularly

"There is no probation given to instruc
tors who assign too many grades at one
extreme or the other," Morrow said.

was one of the departments awarding the

Billing said the physical education de
partment received a printout of the grades
of each instructor and if the grades were
unusually high, instructors were asked to

"The reports prompt a discussion every
year (at Faculty Council meetings), and
there is a general consensus that the grades
are too high," he said.
The reports showed that the department
of mathematics gave the highest percen
tages of D's and Fs.
"Many students don't come to the Uni
versity well prepared in math," Morrow
said. "I suspect that this comparatively
high number of D's and Fs has to do with
poor preparation." .

ducation majors face good job prospects

For qualified education majors willing to move, the job
outlook upon graduation is good, say UNC School of
The UNC Education Job Fair held here recently, which
recruiters from various school systems attended, lays to
rest the myth that there are no jobs for education majors,
said Phillip Schlechty, associate dean and professor in the
School of Education.
An increasing number, of children entering school, a
teaching force nearing retirement and high-technology in
dustries are combining to create a teacher shortage said
William Burke, director of teacher education and
associate professor in the School of Education.
The second baby boom nearing school age combined
with a teaching force nearing retirement could result in
problems for the teaching field, Burke said, especially if
there is not a supply of quality teachers to replace the ones
that are leaving.
Over the years, there has been a decrease in the number
of students majoring in education, Schlechty said.
. "In 1966, UNC had 22 percent ot its graduates as
education majors, and in 1983 only 4.7 percent of its
graduates are education majors," he said. This trend is
not only statewide, but nationwide, Schlechty added.
Recruiters at the UNC Job Fair said education majors
specializing in the areas of math and science were in
greatest demand. "
' Robert G. Aldous, assistant superintendent for Burling
. ton City schools, said his school systemn was looking for
teachers in the "science, math and special education areas
that can teach fifth through eighth grades."
High-technology industries are also competing for
science and math education majors to work in entry level
management positions, Schlechty said. Because industries
are able to offer graduates a higher salary, more graduates
are leaving teaching for industry, he said. However, when
industries locate in a given area, the population of that,
area increases and the need for more teachers increases,
Schlechty added. ;
Supplying qualified teachers to fill the demand is not a
problem for UNC, said Doris McCaulcy, associate direc
tor for the UNC Career Planning and Placement Office
The majority of UNC's education majors make at least
1,100 on the National Teachers Education Test when 950
is passing, she said.
The more mobile a job seeker is willing to be, the
greater his chances of finding employment, Burke said.
Only so many jobs are available in any given place in
North Carolina, he said. If an education major is willing
to move to another state and possibly take a job in a rural
town, the chances of getting a job are very good, Burke
Donna McKenzie, a senior education major, agreed
there are jobs available for those willing to move. Many
jobs are opening up in rural towns but often education
majors do not want to move to a small community unless
they have ties there, McKenzie said.
Senior education major Susan Smart said she was look
ing for a job in the same area as her husband. The salary
being offered in a rural area is "nowhere near great and
the chance for an increase is nil," she said.
Burke said that in order to increase the number of
students majoring in education, teaching must be made
more attractive by increasing salaries and the conditions of
the working place.
