Down with Duke
ACC basketball is not Mid-Atlantic wrestling or barnyard cock
fighting, for that matter. But if Saturday afternoon was any indication, a
portion of Duke Blue Devil fans cannot make that distinction. In a hotly
contested game against Maryland, they acted with the finesse usually re
served for Ric Flair fans during a Thanksgiving bonanza at the Greens
boro Coliseum. In short, their behavior was crass, rude and destructive,
holding no place in college athletics.
In Saturday's game, the Terrapins' Herman Veal was the natural
target, having been suspended from the team last year after being accused
of sexually assaulting a Maryland female student. When he stepped on
the court, Duke fans reacted with taunts and gestures so vile they would
have made even Eddie Murphy wince. Fans threw contraceptives and
waved women's underwear. They carried signs promoting a "Win a Date
with Herman Veal Contest."
To be fair, the anti-Veal shenanigan was only one more in a long
line of Duke-inspired charades. Last year, it was Lorenzo Charles, the
N.C. State forward who had been arrested for robbing a pizza delivery
man, who was the target. To greet him, Duke fans waved pizza boxes. A
few years earlier, when State's Clyde Austin played Duke, fans jingled
car keys, suggesting that Austin's new car was bought for him by the
Wolfpack athletic department.
No one seems to know why Duke fans act so barbarically at basketball
games. Perhaps they have so little respect for their team's ability that they
feel they must attack the opponent to get the winning edge. Perhaps they
believe this type of cheering actually helps their team. (It didn't Saturday
when Maryland went on to defeat Duke 81-75, Veal scoring 12 and re
Even Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski doesn't have the answers. In a
press conference Monday he urged ACC fans not to blow Saturday's
game out of proportion. "No one should go .completely overboard in
condemning the crowd for what happened at one game," he said. ."I
think if we have that at every game, we would have a big problem."
Well, Krzyzewski, where have you been? For years now, Cameron
crowds have been an embarrassment to Duke University and to the ACC
as a whole. It's hard to boast that the ACC is the nation's best con
ference when its fans wave women's underwear..
It can only be hoped that maybe one year, with a championship con
tender, Duke fans will finally break free of their childlike tendencies and
watch a basketball game with a maturity more appropriate for 20-year-olds.
Students there always have claimed to have class; maybe it's time
they proved it.

The INS and OUTS of fashion
By SARAH RAPER
A lot of people I know always seem to wear the
right clothes and say the right things. I think that's
great, and I'll admit I'm a little envious just a con
ditioned response after years of being OUT.
1 can't say that being classified OUT should be any
big surprise. I come by it naturally and any inadver
tent expression of fashion has been assiduously nip
ped in the bud by a father who was born wearing
wing-tipped shoes and keeps his hair at a comfortable
58 of an inch.
Second grade was a turning point. I was denied go
go boots, then the rage at Van Story Elementary. I
could deal with being told 'no' to a machine
washable, blue fake-fur coat; I did not resist wearing
the plaid dress witly smocking for the class picture
that year. However, being the only girl in the Car
dinals reading group without the crinkled vinyl boots
(which came in red, blue, white and black for the
more sophisticated members of the Weekly Reader
set) was not to be endured.
Then, in an act of tyranny that could only be link
ed to Robespierre and that I always believed con
stituted treason of the worst kind, my mother said no
to a POW bracelet. I can imagine what the other Car
dinals must have thought about me for not wearing
one of the silver bands, engraved with the name of a
captured American soldier, that could only be
removed when that soldier returned.
Following this social setback were years without
velveteen' elephant-leg pants, tube tops, string
bikinis, hot pants and buffalo sandals. Not to men
tion missing out on the important accessories and
treats including pet rocks, Wacky Package stickers,
Space Dust candy, troll necklaces and mood rings.
You can understand, then, why last week's issue of
W magazine was almost a religious experience for
me. Squeezed in between the full-page ads for
Adolfo and Bill Blass's revelation of dislikes, which
include women who do crossword puzzles in ink and
women who jog and tell, there are several lists of
what's IN (like Australia, parrots, jeeps, New York
City policemen, clothespins and babies) and what's
OUT (like Japan, jungle prints and animal skins,
cowboy boots, heavy industrial looks, Woody Allen
and the mayor of Paris). -
OUT. Also, the U.S. military is IN, but Washington,
D.C., is OUT.
W gives fairly detailed information about what's
IN and OUT in the way of nightlife and entertain
ment. Such things as adventure and mystery movies,
poker nights, platonic love affairs, tea dancing in
Paris, Bang & Olufsen remote-control stereos, walk
ing your mother, boxing and staying in on Saturday
nights but going out on Sunday nights are all
Monogamy, paying taxes and bouncing checks are IN, but American out
door metal furniture, groping your partner under the dinner table and dressing
weird and acting straight are OUT.
Having fought OUT and dodged traffic in the fast
lane for years, it's comforting to know that finally
there is a guide for those of us who did without go-go
I'll admit, using Was a reference has its problems.
Lying horizontally to get my nose up high enough for
the proper snobby perspective was a little uncomfor
table. But once I got used to it, I was thankful just to
find out that monogamy, paying taxes and bouncing
checks are IN, but American outdoor metal fur
niture, groping your partner under the dinner table
and dressing weird and acting straight are OUT.
It really contains all kinds of interesting informa
tion, some of which might even be useful in the
classroom. For example, Francois Mitterrand, the
president of France, is IN, but his government is
So, what else is OUT? Mexican food, bottled
water, beef (unless it's beer-rubbed), giant TV
screens, talk shows, promiscuity, rock concerts, co
caine, MTV, ice-skating in a rink, being a bachelor,
male models and pushy people will ill-concealed
I was just putting the magazine away to do a little
English reading (wonder if Wordsworth is IN or
OUT?) when my roommate referred me back to page
Guess what else is OUT according to Wl
Journalism as a profession.
Sarah Raper, a junior English and previously jour
nalism major from Fayetteville (definitely OUT), is a
staff writer for The Daily Tar Heel (definitely IN).
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Vote for STV and fee increase
To the editor:
Coming up in this February's elections
are two referendums. One is a student fee
increase to supplement the funding of
more than 30 student organizations' pro
grams. Additionally a separate student
fee increase for one year, not a fee in
crease, is suggested for the creation of
one of the few student television stations
in the country. Even though these sub
jects seem to have been exhausted, certain
information that is unique to this year's
referendums has not been borne out
because the circumstances are quite dif
ferent from years past.
If planned correctly, the student televi
sion station does seem to be a promising
program. Access to students is the key to
its desirability. The first step would be to
put cable in dorm common rooms. This
could be a reality. Village Cable has
discussed with us the possibility of doing
this free in the prospect of cultivating a
huge, future market in many dorm
rooms. The Student Union would present
STV shows free for access also., From
here, access could t increased.
The second desirable factor of this pro
ject is that the shows' producing, creating
and writing is open to all students. Dif-
Tell whole story
To the editor:
Wayne Thompson has done it ("A lit
tle PR goes a long way," DTH, Jan. 13).
By relying on statistics taken out of con
text or without any consideration for
their true meaning, in his attempt to
discredit Gov. Jim Hunt, he has lowered
himself and the DTH to a level of distor
tion reminiscent of many a recent
Thompson harps about the dispropor
tionate industrial development in North
Carolina. He says that "53 percent of the
new business projects were located in the
Piedmont, compared to 24 percent for
the mountain region and 23 percent for
the coastal areas." But what he doesn't
consider is that the Piedmont presents to
an interested business a much larger reser
voir of skilled labor. To invest enough
money to start a new business in an area
without an adequate supply of skilled
labor is economically preposterous.
Secondly, the mountain and coastal
regions have a large percentage of their
economies involved in tourism.
Therefore, any development in the state
will indirectly accrue some increases in
revenues for development of the moun
tain and coastal regions. Thompson fails
to recognize or admit this.
Regarding education, Thompson com
plains about North Carolina's rankings in
educational areas. True, North Carolina
does not rank among the top of the
United States. However, it is not the
governor who controls the necessary
power to remedy the situation. It is the
Legislature. They, not the governor, con
trol the purse strings for the state. But
Thompson, rather than recognizing this
and encouraging his readers to pressure
their legislators, is intent upon placing the
blame where it doesn't wholly belong.
Through his efforts to discredit Hunt,
Thompson has fallen prey to the same
type of negative thinking that has plagued
North Carolina and United States politics
in recent , years. Hopefully, he and
whatever future political candidate he is
so backhandedly endorsing will be con
tent to tell the whole story in the future
rather than just the portions that suit
ferent students could help on one, some
or all shows. The RTVMP Department
has endorsed it. This encouragement is
great, but not a prerequisite. Duke runs a
student TV station and no RTVMP
Department exists. The project is ob
viously feasible. Any Carolina student
can do more than a Duke student.
Finally, this referendum is not for the
STV's total funding. It was thought by
STV and the Campus Governing Council
that students should be able to decide the
fate of STV. The money should not just
be allocated "om other organizations'
funding through the CGC Finance Com
mittee's decisions. Students should have
input as to whether they want such a
large-scale project. Current funds do not
exist for it. The referendum will provide
$20,000 of the $35,000 for equipment
needed to start the station. The remaining
$15,000 will be sought from corporations
through tax-deductible donations. Cor
porations will not give donations unless
students show monetary support first.
STV has a faculty advisor and a constitu
tion. If you want it, vote for it; and if you
do not, don't vote for it. If supporters of
STV would like to work on its creation,
STV meets at 4 p.m. in the Union on
The student fee increase will be
allocated to the other programs entirely.
These programs include Student Legal
Services, which costs more than $70,000
alone, the Student Part Time Employ
ment Service, Resident Housing Associa
tion, Victory Village's Day Care Center
for married students' children, and about
30 other programs. They need fund
ing. The allocations for next year will
run into at least a $15,000 shortfall if
there is no fee increase.
Many often confuse the general reserve
to be a surplus. Each year, money from
the reserve is placed into the budget. It is
running out. Either we get a fee increase,
which we have not had for six years, or
programs such as that for the care of
students' children will be cut out. Please
do not let that tragedy take place. A $ 1 .50
increase is not much to ask of each stu
dent for such programs. Even with such a
fee for programs, 30 percent will be con
stitutionally allocated to Union program
ing and 16 percent to the DTH. The
amount left may seem too trivial to vote
for, but please do.
We can do great things as and for the
student body, but we need funds to do it.
These funds will serve the campus and the
community. Please vote for the fee and
the fee increase.
