Memphis St. makes
things scary for UNC
By FRANK KENNEDY
Assistant Sports Editor
When North Carolina coach Dick Crum faced a group of
about 30 reporters after Saturday's win over Memphis State, he
had every right to say but didn't say "I told you so."
Crum had warned all those bitter skeptics of the Tar Heels'
lightweight schedule that Rex Dockery's MSU Tigers would not
be a pushover. He warned those who thought that the Tigers'
37-17 opening day romp over Mississippi was a fluke. He warn
ed the people who thought this Saturday would be another big
party in Kenan Stadium.
Perhaps Crum opted to avoid that remark because he knew
that, after a 10-10 halftime tie, everyone would realize exactly
what he had been talking about.
"It's hard to prepare for someone you've never played be
fore," he said moments after the Tar Heels 24-10 win. "Their
kids played real hard -and stayed right with us. They took ad
vantage of some opportunities we gave them and did a good
Tar Heel tailback Ethan Horton reflected his coach's senti
ments. "We knew they'd be up for us," Horton said. "We saw
them on the films, and they looked like a quick team. Their de
fense played four quarters."
Horton should know. After all, it was he who bore the bur
den of the Tar Heel attack during a second half that, with few
exceptions, was a defensive struggle. Horton's 137 yards (117 in
the second half) was the cog that kept UNC on line during the
"I knew we'd have to run a little harder and break a few more
tackles," he added. "Our offense was down a little at halftime
because we missed a couple of chances when we should have i
Horton broke loose for two touchdowns in the 90-plus degree
heat, including the one that put it away at 12:55 of the final ,
quarter on a 22-yard scamper down the left sideline.
"That was a play off to the right side, and as I got the ball, I
let the play develop in front of me and saw the defensive front
shift right. So, I shifted back inside, got a block, and was
Horton was able to make that move cutting back left
against the grain numerous times in the second half, as the
young MSU line consistently overpursued the ball.
Horton, now the established starter at tailback over senior
Tyrone Anthony, could not explain why he carried the ball only
seven times in the first half for just 20 yards.
"The coach tells us to go as long as we can go," he said. "I
know I'm the starter, so I'll come out whenever they send
Tyrone in. When one of us comes out, we know it's just for a
breather because we'll be right back in."
Crum summed the running-back situation in a humorous
vein. "We'll just be going along there, and we'll turn around
and ask who wants to play."
That might just be as good a strategy as any, because if there
is one area the Tar Heels can rely on, it is in the backfield. In ad
dition to Horton and Anthony (17 carries, 54 yards), junior
fullback Eddie Colson (12 carries, 63 yards) and third-stringer
William Humes (11 carries, 40 yards) also showed their muscle.

BEIRUT, Lebanon U.S. and British
jets roared over Beirut in a show of force
Sunday as mortar shells struck Marine
positions near the airport, and Christian
Druse fighting was reported spreading
south from the Chouf mountains.
The Lebanese army reported fierce
overnight battles for the key mountain
town of Souk el Gharb, some five miles
southeast of Beirut; where leftist Druse
and rightist Christian militias have been
locked in bloody fighting for more than a
The Christian militia said it has turned
over several captured villages in the area to
the Lebanese army, which failed to enter
the region when Israeli troops withdrew
two weeks ago. As soon as the Israelis
pulled back to southern Lebanon, intense
fighting broke out between the Christians
British Buccaneer fighter jets roared low
over the capital to support the British,
French, Italian and American peacekeep
ing forces, while a Marine spokesman said
U.S. F-14 Tomcat fighters flew "recon
naissance missions" over the capital and
the nearby mountains.
The 1,200-man Marine contingent
scrambled into bunkers when two mortar
rounds struck, but the shelling eased after
""ah hour. No injuries were reported.
At least a dozen shells fell between the
U.S. bunkers and a nearby Lebanese army
emplacement, which began returning fire.
Lebanon's state-run radio reported in
tense artillery exchanges between militia
men in several villages south of the Chouf
indicating a possible plan by the Druse
to sweep south of the Lebanese army and
Christian militia positions along the Souk
el-Gharb mountain ridge to the Mediterra
A Druse spokesman in Beirut said
Druse militia units had reached villages on
ly 400 yards east of the coast.
As the fighting spread south, hundreds
of Christians and Moslem refugees fled in
to Israeli-occupied southern Lebanon, say
ing they were fleeing bombardments from
the Chouf ranges.
A Lebanese army communique said two
Lebanese soldiers and at least two Palesti
nian guerrillas were killed in the fighting
around Souk el Gharb.
But Western military sources said a
U.S.-trained Lebanese unit, considered the
best in the Lebanese army, was overrun in
the battle. Fourteen Lebanese soldiers
were killed, 28 wounded and 28 others
were missing in the fierce hand-to-hand
fighting, they added.
The Israeli army command, meanwhile,
said it has sent patrols north of its new
defense lines along the Awali River in
southern Lebanon. One patrol of four Is
raeli tanks and eight armored personnel
carriers reached Lebanon's main power
station at Jiyeh, just 10 miles south of
Israeli radio quoted Defense Minister
Moshe Arens as telling a Cabinet meeting
Sunday that Israeli soldiers could push for
ward from their defense line to strike at
"Our forces will hit at the terrorists
across the Awali line but will not intervene
in the fighting in the Chouf mountains and
will not return there," Arens reportedly
Israel withdrew from the Chouf range
to the Awali River to reduce steady Israeli
casualties and shorten vulnerable supply
lines. The move was also aimed at quelling
domestic criticism of the government.
In Beirut, Western military sources said
both Christian and the Syrian-back Druse
militias were wearing down after a week of
fierce fighting, but added the Druse were
receiving support from Palestinian fighters
Sources also said the Red Cross had
"frozen" efforts to reach the embattled
Chouf mountain town of Deir al-Kamar,
where an estimated 25,000 to 30,000 Chris
tian refugees are surrounded by Druse
Druse militiamen have denied the Red
Cross access to the town for the past week,
although Druse leader Walid Jumblatt has
promised not to attack the town. Jumblatt
told ABC news he seeks only "peace and
political compromise" in the Lebanon

G quotas at UNC subject of suit
By MARK STINNEFORD
UNC is the battleground for a continuing debate whether
quotas are an acceptable way to represent minorities.
A nine-year old reverse-discrimination suit against the Univer
sity has been a showdown between classic arguments on both
sides of the issue. The suit challenges provisions guaranteeing
minority representation on the Campus Governing Council and
in the student judicial system.
The latest round in the fight ended last week as testimony
concluded in U.S. District Court in Durham. Judge Frank
Bullock is not expected to issue a decision for at least a month.
Jim Fuller, an attorney for students assisting in the Universi
ty's defense, said the minority representation guarantees are
necessary to overcome the lingering effects of segregation.
Segregation was imposed by law at the University for more than
100 years and was ended only by court order, he said.
"One of the issues is to what extent that we are and have been
affected by the vestiges of past discrimination," he said. "Pro
gress has made us forget how pervasive discrimination was not
very long ago."
But Donald Elmore, the current plaintiff, said the guarantees
place an unfair burden on students who had nothing to do with
"I realize how things were years and years ago," Elmore said.
"That was terrible. But I don't see why people today should
have to make up for things they were not responsible for.
There's no reason we should pay."
The suit was filed in June 1974 by Lawrence Uzzell and
Robert Lane Arlington, then students at UNC, and has been
sustained by a series of "intervening plaintiffs." Elmore, a
senior from Gastonia, said he took on the case at the request of
friends, whom he declined to identify.
One of the challenged provisions requires that the Campus
Governing Council have at least two minority members. The
Student Body President must appoint minorities to the CGC if
the requirement is not met during elections.
CGC Speaker James Exum said the requirement is necessary
to ensure the council makes responsible decisions.
"There's a definite need to get information from all perspec
tives when a decision will affect the entire student body," Exum
said. "That means we need the perspectives of blacks, women,
whites and as many groups that come from the student body."
But Elmore said that race alone was not an adequate quali
fication for appointment.

Carrbbro to consider task force proposals
By DOUG TATE
The Carrboro Board of Aldermen will consider recommenda
tions of the Carrboro Water Quality Task Force at a public hear
ing Tuesday night concerning the University Lake watershed.
The public hearing, scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at the Carrboro
Town Hall, follows a 2Vi year study by the task force to formu
late specific regulations for the development in the watershed.
The recommendations of the task force include graduation of
density of residential development, limitation of commercial
and industrial development, definition and restriction on hazar
dous substances, and preservation of natural buffers.
Former Alderman Doug Sharer sees water quality as a vital
community 'issue. "The potential of degredation of the water
supply is such that the water will not be usable in a decade,"
Sharer is a member of Citizens for Clean Water, an ad hoc
group concerned about water quality. He announced three
weeks ago that he would not run for election to the board in
University Lake is the main source of water for the Chapel
Hill-Carrboro area. The town of Carrboro controls 70 percent
of the lake's shoreline, and therefore, plays a major role in the
protection of the water's quality.
Sharer sites the lack of a plan for development around the
watershed as a major water quality problem.
"Development, erosion and disturbing of the land will in the
short run decrease the quality and in the long run increase sedi
mentation and decrease quantity of water," he said.
Sharer also said that development pressure is not intense but
will be in the near future.
Alderman Steve Rose, chairman of the task force, could not
be reached for comment.

Three UNC lacrosse players were ar
rested early Friday morning on charges of
assaulting a Chapel Hill woman.
Thomas B. Voelkel, 21, of K-3 Tar Heel
Manor; Edward Steidle II, 21, of 102-E
Bolinwood Apartments; and Keith J.
Braddish, 22, of K-l Tar Heel Manor were
arrested at 1 :01 a.m. in the 500 block of
East Rosemary Street, according to police
Voelkel, Steidle and Braddish were re
leased Friday morning on an unsecured
bond of $200 each. A trial for the three
was set for Oct. 20 in Chapel Hill District
Betty B. Sanders, of 504-A North St.,
said Sunday that she was verbally abused
and pushed on a rock wall -by three
students when she went to complain about
the noise created by the 30-hour party at
Delta Upsilon fraternity.
Sanders said that the students got angry
at her complaints and assaulted her. Police
witnessed the incident, she added. She said
she had never met the three before.
UNC lacrosse coach Willie Scroggs said
in a telephone interview Friday afternoon
that he was not yet aware of the incident.
"I can't possibly make a comment until I
know more," he said. "I am sure, as with
everything, there are two sides to this." He
would not say whether disciplinary action
would take place.
Steidle refused comment Sunday. Voel
kel and Braddish were out of town for the
weekend and could not be reached.
The incident Friday morning was not
the first involving lacrosse players, said Art
Chanskv. co-ownrr rf Frmr Con" Hrs-
taurant. Chansky, a sportscaster for
WCHL, said that in May 1981 he took out
a warrant for the arrest of a UNC lacrosse
player. The player "jumped up onto the
bar, ran down it and jumped off," Chan
sky said. "He just broke a couple of
glasses but he really scared people. Some
one could have been hurt."
Following the incident Chansky said
that he met with Scroggs and UNC Ath
letic Director John Swofford and worked
out an agreement that banned all lacrosse
players from entering the restaurant again.
Charges against the player were subse
Prior to that incident, Chansky said he
had received about six complaints from
employees about lacrosse players.
"I will say that I think the lacrosse
team's record speaks for itself, on and off
the field," he said.
