COLUMBIA, S.C. Driving
into this train station town, the
skyline appears surprisingly large,
almost impressive, for what has
been described as just a spot to
stop for gas on the way to
somewhere worth stopping and
That is, it appears as such until
you've climbed the first of the in

North Carolina took that same
route into town Friday, but the
surprise didn't come until the
following night in front of 72,400
fans in South Carolina's Williams
Brice Stadium and it wasn't the
Tar Heels doing the double takes.
Everybody in the place, from the
most idealistic of Gamecock fans
to South Carolina coach Joe Mor
rison himself, had to be thinking
"North Carolina win," if not
"North Carolina blowout," at
least in moments of rationality and
logic. And those same people had
to be thinking just exactly how it
would be done with a defense as
generous as the IRS in April and
those two big tailbacks. That's
But who ever expected, save the
guys dressed in blue on the
sidelines with helmets or headsets
on their heads, that North Carolina
would pass the ball? , ... ... . ...

While the Tar Heels' defense
with the exception of a few lapses
and an 80-yard South Carolina
drive late in the fourth quarter
played some flawless football, and
those big tailbacks Ethan Hor
ton (114 yards, 29 carries) and
Tyrone Anthony (49 yards, 13 car
ries) combined for 163 yards on
the ground, it was the take-what-you-can-get,
attack of quarterback Scott Stan

most responsible for North

victory over the Gamecocks that

in itself; if anything, it was a tad on
the low side for an offense that
passed on the average of more than
21 times per game in 1982. So how
much was no big deal. When and
how accurate were.

Students desert UNC on long weekend

Saturday night no long line snaked down the
sidewalk of Franklin Street from Purdy's. At Mr.
Gatti's Pizza, more than half the seats were emp
ty. The largest crowd of UNC students over the
holiday weekend was probably in Columbia
for the UNC-University of South Carolina game.
On a- sunny afternoon Sunday, the Morrison
volleyball court was deserted. The study lounges
in the new stacks of Wilson Library were largely
The Carolina Union was closed from 5 p.m.
Friday to 7:30 a.m. today. Even with the Pine
Room closed, lines at the Fast Break were short.
But a bar fight at Troll's Bar still summoned
five police cars.
Over the Labor Day weekend, most residence
halls held less than half their usual number of oc
cupants. A desk attendant at Hinton James
Saturday night said the dormitory was three
fourths to four-fifths deserted.
Those students who stayed in Chapel Hill over
the weekend found the town quiet. Morrison
"was very dead," said Diane Litke, a sophomore
from Douglaston, N.Y.
"There's nobody here, nothing to do," said
Becky Pate, a freshman from Emerald Isle.

Most students who stayed in town over the
weekend seemed to be out-of-staters. "There's
no way you can go home when it takes two days
to make the trip," Dillard said.
"We live light years away," said Jonathan
Fassberg. He and companion Tim Mehringer are
freshmen from Long Island, N.Y.
Not everybody wanted to go home. "It's bor

sophomore from Canton.
"It's too far to go home and I had all kinds of
fun things lined up to do here," said Joseph
Stiefel, a third-year physics graduate student
from Knoxville, Tenn.

Labor Day quiet had him puzzled. "When we've

The decision not to have clases on Labor Day
this year was made in 1982 by the Calendar Com
mittee, a group of students, faculty and ad
ministrators, said Raymond E. Strong, director
of the Records and Registration Office. "They
are the ones who get together to decide which
days will be holidays."
Strong makes a draft of each year's calendar
and sends a copy to each committee member.

it. But Strong said it would be difficult to have
classes on Labor Day, however, because the

ago when the school year also started late.
"Nobody (today) seems to want to have classes

Drop in use delays

A drop in water use over the Labor Day
weekend provided Chapel Hill area resi
dents with only a temporary delay of
mandatory restrictions on water use.
The Orange Water and Sewer Authority
will seek such mandatory restrictions to
day, said Pat Davis, a systems manage
ment specialist for the utility.
The restrictions will affect OWASA's
service area of Chapel Hill, Carrboro and
southern Orange County, Davis said.
Water restrictions will come despite a
slackening of water use over the weekend.
Water use, which equalled 6.9 million
gallons on Friday, dropped to 6 million
gallons on Saturday and 4.9 million
gallons on Sunday, said Doug Terry,
superintendent of water supply and treat
ment for OWASA.
Terry attributed the drop in water use to
the number of residents traveling out of
town for the holiday weekend.
The restrictions will ban the washing of
cars, even at commercial car washes.
Watering lawns and gardens will be limited

A Soviet source, who was in a position
to know but refused to be identified in any
way, told The Associated Press on Sunday
that the plane was shot down on orders of
top Soviet military officials. The order was
made because the Soviets believed the
plane was spying, the source said.
Reagan praised Canada, which earlier in
the day announced that it was suspending
the Soviet airlines' landing and refueling
privileges in Montreal and Gander, New
foundland. The United States alone could do little
to restrict the Soviet Union's commercial
aviation activities, but a suspension of
landing rights and actions taken in
cooperation with other nations could have
a significant impact.
Representatives of about 20 friendly
governments were called to the State De
