GREENSBORO The Missouri
Tigers may have been hoping to get a lit
tle help from the Sports Illustrated
preseason cover jinx when they met
North Carolina in the season opener for
both teams Saturday night, but what they
got was a tenacious Tar Heel defense that
kept the Tigers attack off balance most of
the game, forcing 24 Missouri turnovers
and very few easy baskets.
Playing most of the game in a tight,
man-to-man trapping defense, the Tar
Heels continually frustrated the Tigers
and made up for their own subpar
shooting from the floor and the free
throw line to post a 64-57 victory before
15,512 fans in the Greensboro Coliseum.
The Tigers, meanwhile keyed heavily on
UNC's Ail-Americans Michael Jordan
and Sam Perkins, and in the process they
overlooked the ever-consistent forward
Matt Doherty, point guard Kenny Smith
(the fifth UNC freshman to start in his
first varsity game) and freshman reserve
Joe Wolf, who hit the boards well while
substituting for starter Brad Daugherty.
Jordan and Perkins, who are featured
in this week's issues of Sports Illustrated,
contributed 13 and 12 points, respective
ly; but Doherty, who was constantly open
at the top of the key, contributed 15
points on six of eight field goals to
become the game's high scorer. Smith,
who started ahead of junior Buzz Peter
son and sophomore Steve Hale at the
point position, added 14 points and often
controlled the offense like a seasoned
UNC coach Dean Smith said he was
generally pleased with his team's defen
sive performance in its opening game, but
was concerned about the mental attitude
of the players. "Maybe it was being on
Sports Illustrated or being number one,'
he said. "I don't know for sure what it
was, but we seemed to be holding back at
The Tar Heels shot just 48 percent
from the foul line, and connected on 49
percent of their field goal attempts. "I
was extremely disappointed with the free
throw shooting," Smith said. "But I
think that will come around quickly and
we'll be shooting much better before
On many occasions, the trapping
defense employed by UNC resulted in un
timely fouls, many of which drew pro
tests from the UNC bench and the
boisterous partisan crowd. Center
Daugherty, who fouled out with 9:28 re
maining in the game, said there were
many questionable calls but he
"The (Big Eight conference) officials
probably weren't used to the double
teaming we were doing and the quick
trap," he said. "They did the best they
could considering the circumstances, but
they were calling a lot of little fouls."
Late in the first half, the two teams
traded technical fouls. Coach Smith was
slapped with one after Jordan was called
for an offensive foul on a back-door
play, and later Tiger coach Norm Stewart
was hit for a technical when guard Ted
Mimlitz was called for a similar offense.
Racial overtones could
By THAD OGBURN
As the expected race for the U.S. Senate between
Republican Sen. Jesse Helms and Democratic Gov. Jim
Hunt draws closer, political observers in North Carolina
feel that racial overtones could help determine who wins.
Neither candidate has tried to make race an issue. But
Helms' recent opposition to the bill making Martin Luther
King Jr.'s birthday a federal holiday, along with black
presidential candidate Jesse Jackson's voter registration
drive in North Carolina, have drawn attention to race as
an issue in both candidates' campaigns.
Although neither Hunt nor Helms has formally an
nounced an active campaign for the seat now held by
Helms, there is little doubt that the contest between the
two is on. Both men have campaign committees in opera
tion, pollsters have measured support for the two can
didates, and Helms has challenged Hunt to a series of
Michael Lienesch, an assistant professor of political
science at UNC, said very few blacks would vote for
Helms. Because of this, Helms' opposition to the King
holiday bill was a good strategy, Lienesch said.
"I believe that Helms didn't lose any votes by opposing
King," said Lienesch, who has discussed Helms, with his
American political thought class. "Helms does need issues

dishing out five assists in Saturday's 64-57 win over Missouri. For more on Smith, see story on page 4.
With Jordan and Perkins being con
tained offensively most of the game, the
Tar Heels had to find life elsewhere. They
found that life in Doherty and Smith.
"They dared Matt to take the open
jumper," Coach Smith said. "And he
put them in."
But perhaps the most pleasant surprise
for the Tar Heels was the freshman point
guard Smith, who showed offensive sav
vy on numerous occasions. Smith, who
dished out five assists, also excited the
crowd with a slam dunk on a fast break
pass from Wolf late in the first half, and
drove the baseline on numerous occa
sions. "I was just taking the shots whenever
they were there," Smith said. "I wanted
in this campaign. He is an issues candidate."
Claude Allen, a spokesman for the Helms for Senate
Committee, defended Helms, saying North Carolinians
probably are 2-1 against having a federal holiday on
"Sen. Helms, in opposing the Martin Luther King holi
day, did what he thought was right," Allen said. "He
didn't take into account political reasons."
The N.C. Human Relations Council recently urged all
1984 candidates not to use racist tactics. Council Chair
man Jerry Drayton, in issuing the request, recalled the
racial overtones used by Willis Smith Sr. in defeating
Frank Porter Graham in the 1950 Senate race. Helms
went to work as an assistant to Smith after the election.
Brent Hackney, a spokesman for Hunt, said the gover
nor would not dwell on the issue of racism in his cam
paign. He added that Helms "indicts himself when it
comes to racial issues.
Hunt will pick up most of the liberal and black votes
because they will have no other candidate to turn to, ac
cording to UNC Political Science Professor Thad Beyle.

"It was too bad that Brad fouled out,"
Wolf said. "But I was glad to have the

as I could and do well on the boards.
"It's going to take time to get used to
the system," he said, adding that he plan
ned to leave the scoring duties to the likes
of Jordan and Perkins, and instead con
centrate primarily on defense.
Coach Smith said he was disappointed
that with all the turnovers the UNC
defense forced, the Tar Heels never walk-
ed away from the Tigers. "I thought we
should have been up twenty early on, but
I looked up at the clock and we were only

"He'll keep Jesse Jackson at arm's length, but he'll

drive," said Lienesch.
- Jackson's drive was an attempt to register 250,000 N.C.
black voters last summer. It was followed closely by a
voter registration drive of another sort, led by the Rev.
Jerry Falwell. Falwell, the head of the Moral Majority and
an avid supporter of Helms, hoped to register 200,000
conservative voters in the state.
Hunt is ahead in most public-opinion polls conducted
thus far, although there is some discrepancy over what his
actual lead is. The Carolina Poll, conducted by the UNC
. School of Journalism, reported last month that Hunt was
up by about 20 percent.
"The Carolina Poll has a very poor track record of
picking winners," Allen said, adding that it is too early to
rely on poll data.

Sanctuary still sought
for illegal immigrants
By SHARON SHERIDAN
A sanctuary in Chapel Hill for illegal
Central American immigrants has been in
the making since May, but problems have
made finding a place for it difficult, local
citizens involved in the project said.
Concerned Citizens for Sanctuary, a
group that includes some members of the
Carolina Committee on Central America
and of the Carolina Interfaith Task Force
on Central America, is concerned about il
legal immigrants from places like El
Salvador and Guatemala who, group
members say, may be tortured or killed if
sent back to their countries.
About half a dozen churches have
shown an interest in the sanctuary pro
gram, and there have been monthlong in
formational programs on Central America
at the Episcopal Church of the Holy Fami
ly and Binkley Baptist Church, but a
church has not agreed yet to provide sanc
tuary. Group general coordinator Shawn
Bunch, a UNC nursing student, said atten
dance averaged about 20 people per
meeting at Church of the Holy Family and
about 40 at Binkley Baptist Church.
"It's a difficult issue because it takes in
volvement of the whole church (and) also
commitment from the community of
churches to support that church," Bunch
said. "If a refugee is in a church, he needs

looking at other church-related facilities,
such as camps, he said.

to be involved in sanctuary directly," the
Rev. Gary Fulton of Church of the Holy
Family said. His church would not be in
volved directly because of the legality of
providing sanctuary for illegal immigrants,
facility inadequacy and interference with
the church's day care program. Fulton
said he thought the legality issue worried
his parishoners most but that he was not as
concerned about it.
"Obviously it's illegal, but the chance of
being made accountable for that illegal ac
tion is probably pretty slim," he said. In
sanctuary programs elsewhere in the
United States, the government has not

Gemayel flew from Beirut to Rome on
Sunday for three days of talks with Italian
officials. He is then scheduled to visit the
United States, where he hopes to persuade
President Reagan to amend or renegotiate
the May 17 agreement providing for

Syria and its leftist allies in Lebanon
have demanded the agreement be canceled
because it gives Israel political, economic
and security concessions in Lebanon.
Representatives of rival Lebanese fac
tions adjourned their "national reconcilia
tion conference" in Geneva, Switzerland,
last month to give Gemayel time to
negotiate the removal of Israeli, Pales

Ed Brigham, assistant officer in charge
of the Immigration and Naturalization of

member would not save one from prosecu

cases where members of the clergy have
Action would not be taken in a criminal
matter against the whole church, but
rather against individual members or a
group that had violated the law, Brigham
said. The decision of whether to prosecute
would be made by a U.S. attorney.
Seymour said legality had not been a big
issue with his congregation. "I would ex
pect that there is that kind of response
(against providing sanctuary), but I would
guess that it's a minority voice," he said.
Fulton said there is some question of
whether the immigrants were political or
economic refugees. He said that he would
want to be specific about who would be
given sanctuary and that he probably
would opt for some kind of selective pro
cess. "I think I'm divided on the issue as to
who we should provide sanctuary (for),"
he said. "I want to come down on the side
of people whose lives are in fact really in

"At this point I think that any refugee
from Guatemala or El Salvador should be

substantive proof that the deported im

Some estimates, however, have been
made. "In the case of El Salvador, it's
been estimated by the Chicago Inter
religious Task Force that at one time one
out of every three persons that was being
deported back to Salvador, especially men,
were being shot a few weeks after arrival,"
said Richard McGouh, a member of the
Carolina Committee on Central America
and vice chairman of the Carolina Coali
tion for Justice in Central America.
