When Ralph Sampson played his last
game for the University of Virginia, the
heated rivalry that had existed for four
years between UNC and UVa. was of
ficially brought to a close. At least for the

proclamation after the two teams were
three-quarters of the way through their
first game since Ralph headed to Houston
and the NBA. With 10:44 to go Wednes
day night in Carmichael Auditorium, the
Tar Heels were up by 21, making every
one forget about some of the most in
tense games of the past four seasons.
But suddenly, this too was a game, and
before even Dean Smith could figure out
what was happening, the rivalry was alive
Virginia, led by guard Othell Wilson
and center Kenton Edelin, outscored
UNC, 21-1, and had two chances to tie
the game in the closing seconds. The Tar
Heels escaped, though, as Wilson and
guard Rick Carlisle both missed short
jump shots in the closing seconds and
UNC hung on for a 69-66 win.
North Carolina raised its record to 13-0
and 4-0 in the ACC. The Cavaliers fell to
11-2 and 1-2 in the ACC.
"Just because Sampson's gone doesn't
mean it's over," UNC forward . Matt
Doherty said of the rivalry that apparent
ly never died. "I think it's always gonna
be this way."
Doherty and his teammates would have
to hope that the games themselves don't
always develop this way. The Tar Heels
seemed to have things well in hand until
Wilson decided to take control of the
game. He scored nine straight points, cut
ting a 19-point lead to 10 on three foul
shots, a layup and two jumpers. That
made the score 58-48.
After Doherty made a free throw,
Wilson came right back with a jump shot
over Michael Jordan to make it a nine
point game with 8:05 to go. Still a big
deficit to overcome.
No problem. Wilson turned things over
to Edelin, who turned it into a three-point
game in a matter of seconds. Edelin
scored on a layup, stole the inbounds pass
and made a short jumper from the lane
Edmisten says loopholes won Hutchins stay
By WAYNE THOMPSON
RALEIGH N.C. Attorney General Rufus Edmisten
says convicted murderer James Hutchins' attorneys
"sandbagged" the legal system in their efforts to spare
Hutchins from his. scheduled execution.
Hutchins' attorneys successfully used legal loopholes
to delay the death by lethal injection, Edmisten said in
an interview Wednesday.
"In the last ruling in this case, the U.S. Supreme
Court ruled that the last-minute appeals tactics are an
abuse of the judicial process," he said.
Hutchins, convicted in 1979 of the shooting deaths of
three Rutherford County law enforcement officers, was
granted a stay of execution Friday by the N.C. Supreme
Court. A Superior Court judge, however, on Monday
set a new execution date for March 16.
Edmisten said the case would be history were it not for
defense attorneys' rehashing of defenses already used in
other N.C. courts. "The insanity defense Hutchins' at
torneys brought up had already been litigated before in
his original trial," he said. "They're just trying to stave
off the inevitable.
"It's always been a favorite tactic of defense attorneys
to wait until months and maybe years later to use de
fenses." Edmisten said state law offered defense attorneys too
much room for maneuvering. "We (North Carolina)

There was 6:02 left and it was anybody's
"We wanted to make it interesting,"
Smith joked afterward.
It got a lot more interesting. Wilson,
who scored 17 of his 21 points in the se
cond half, then cut the lead to one on a
23-footer. But Jordan scored three
points, Brad Daugherty got a dunk and
Doherty made both ends of two one-and-ones
and the score was 68-61 with 1:01
left. Finally, it seemed, the Cavaliers had
been put to rest.
Not quite. Forward Jim Miller put in

layed it in, got fouled by Sam Perkins and

punishment to the defendant and the victim ... both

Attorneys Thomas C. Manning, Joseph B. Cheshire
V and Barbara Smith part of the seven-lawyer effort
to save Hutchins' life and the attorneys who will lead the
defense team in appeals for Hutchins over the next 60
days could not be reached for comment. However,

"Lawyers are required to bring forth all defenses dur
ing the trial," John Parker said. "Defense attorneys
cannot sandbag," he added, citing the state's criminal
procedure statute G.S. 15 A.
Daniel Pollitt, a UNC law professor, agreed with
Parker. "That is the law, you do have to raise the
issues," Pollitt said Wednesday. "You can't hold back."
He explained the defense attorneys' options in the ap
peals for his jclient. "The normal process is that you're
tried by the state for murder ... you can only use those
issues you raised at the trial (as basis for an appeal)." If
the defense attorney discovers a new ruling or evidence
that he thinks could have changed the outcome of the
original trial, he can raise this issue before the court
where the case was first tried, Pollitt said.
If the judge rules that the issue raised by the defense is
valid, or of "constitutional dimension," the defendant
Conway added that he would be' em

women's soccer team's national title as

said. "Right now we are in a contract

Conway stressed that the present con
tract was not agreed upon by the current
DTH Board of Directors or by the cur
rent business manager.
The third major item Conway said he
hoped to work for, if elected, would be to
change the editorial policy to be "more
selective and more moderate."

baseline. He took an eight-foot jump shot
and it went in. And then out. And that,
literally, was the Cavaliers' last shot.
"It was going around and around and I

Jordan, who was in Carlisle's face when
he took the shot. "I guess it was just
lucky he missed."

. A legal precedent was what Hutchins' lawyers needed
to get the N.C. Supreme Court to grant a stay of execu
tion Jan. 13 at 5:20 p.m. just 40 minutes before Hut
chins was to be executed by lethal injection.
Late in the day before Hutchins was to die, a judge in
Charlotte ruled that it was unconstitutional to exclude
jurors during jury selection for opposing the death
penalty. Armed with this precedent, one of Hutchins' at
torneys, John T. Nockleby of Charlotte, boarded a
plane to Richmond at 1 1 p.m., and argued for a stay of
execution before 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
Judge Dickson Phillips. Phillips agreed with Nockleby's
arguments that Hutchins' death sentence was flawed
because death-penalty opponents at the original trial
were excluded from the jury panel.
Edmisten called the appeals "seemingly endless," but
predicted that Hutchins would be dead before the year is
out. "James Hutchins is an animal," he said. "He killed
three of my buddies."
"After Hutchins shot the first two officers, he got
ahead of the officer who was chasing him in a car, stop
ped his car, knelt down and fired at the officer as he
came into sight," Edmisten said. "It was a cold-blooded
ambush even if everybody says it was in a drunken rage.
"Whether or not you support the death penalty," he
said, "you've got to abhor that."

Even though Student Government is
currently without an Elections Board,
Student Body President Kevin Monroe
expressed confidence Wednesday that
campuswide elections would be held as
scheduled on Feb. 14.
"I'm as anxious to get out (of office) as
they (the candidates) are to get in,"
The last Elections Board chairman,
Chris Cox, resigned for personal reasons
at the end of the fall semester after serv
ing for only two months.
Before Cox took the position in Oc
tober, it had been vacant since late May.
Because of communication problems bet
ween Cox and Monroe,: Cox missed
several Campus Governing Council com
mittee meetings scheduled to consider his
appointment. The resulting delay in ap--proving
Cox as chairman last fall forced a
three-week postponement in elections
held to fill vacant CGC seats.
In the rush to hold the fall CGC elec
tions, the Elections Board members
recruited by Cox were never confirmed by
the CGC. Thus, Student Government
finds itself without an Elections Board.
Cox predicted Tuesday that five of the
10 members he recruited for the board
would agree to remain on it ..Monroe said
Wednesday he hoped to present the CGC
with nominations for the chairman and
members of the Elections Board within
two to three weeks. According to the
Elections Laws, the board must consist of
seven to 10 members.
Also according to the Elections Laws,
the board must make petitions available
CGC rejects proposal
to fund political groups
By MARK STINNEFORD
The Campus Governing Council
Wednesday night rejected a proposal to
allow the allocation of student fees to
An amendment to the Student Con
stitution prohibits the allocation of Stu
dent Activities Fees to "programs services
or events of a political or religious
nature." The amendment was passed in a
student body referendum in February
The defeated proposal would have set
up a new student referendum on whether
to drop the ban on funding political ac
tivities. The proposal was defeated 15-4.
CGC member Allan Rosen (District
7-graduate), a sponsor of the ill-fated bill,
said the ban on funding political activities
would prevent Student Government from
actively pursuing programs supporting
education, civil rights and the general
welfare of the student body. .
Rosen added that groups such as the
Black Student Movement and the
Association for Women Students now are
unable to tackle controversial issues of in
terest to students.
"Why shouldn't AWS be able to work
on isues that are controversial but of con
cern to students?" Rosen asked. "What
was political 20 years ago is educational
Brian Dalton (District 15-South Cam
pus), who was against the bill, said
Changing the constitutional amendment
could conceivably allow the CGC to fund
radical groups of the right or left. Kerry
Haynie (District 20-off campus) agreed.
"What we've done is we've lost student
confidence in government," Parker said.
"There's no reason why the administra
tion should know about student concerns
before student government does."
Parker said that meeting full student
employment needs would be a top priori
ty if he is elected. "I founded the Student
Part-Time Employment Service, but it is
not yet complete," he said. Parker added
that he would work for salary wage hikes
proportionate to tuition increases and for
more hiring of students over non-students
in the Student Stores and other University
Parker's other main goal, he said, "is
not a myth. UNC must "own its own
phone system." If UNC employed a
CENTREX system like those at N.C.
State University and Wake Forest Univer
sity, "the hook-up rate would be cheaper,
monthly rates would be cheaper and there
wouldn't be the annual connection
charge," he said.
Other changes Parker said he would
like to make included decreasing prices in
the Student Stores by enforcing prtv
to candidates by Tuesday, Jan. 24. The
petitions must be returned by Feb. 4, and
the board must hold a compulsury can
didates meeting by the same day.
Monroe said he would appoint a stu
dent in his office to ensure that the re
quirements of the Elections Laws were
carried out while the board members were
being recruited and nominated.
Other tasks that need to be accomplish
ed include scheduling election forums,
recruiting poll tenders, programming any
balloting machines that will be used to
count the votes and printing instructions
to be used by the voters, Cox said. The
process of getting students to man the
polls alone could take two to three weeks,
Dennis Bartels, former chairman of the
CGC Student Affairs Committee, has ex
pressed interest in serving as Elections
Board chairman. While he has not made
a final decision, Bartels said he was not
discouraged by the need to organize the
elections on short notice.
"It doesn't worry me much because I
like challenges, and this is definitely a big
one," said Bartels, a junior from Battle
Bartels said he would make a final deci
sion about the job after meeting with
CGC Speaker James Exum said the
council was waiting on Monroe.
"We're ready, but we need the
nomination," said Exum, who is running
for Student Body President. "We can't
act until the president gives us something
upon which to act."
See ELECTIONS on page 6
"Any group - whether it be Yound
Democrats, College Republicans, KKK or
whatever could be funded," Haynie
CGC Student Affairs Committee
Chairman Ron Everett (District 13-HRQ
said the bill was irrelevant because
students voted to ban funding political
and religious activities less than a year
"The students have already decided on
this; I don't see what the point is," he
But Steve Reinhard (District
1 -graduate) said the CGC was a political
body and should have the power to make
political statements. He noted that col
leges led the opposition to U.S. involve
ment in Vietnam.
"CGC can play a political role in affec
ting national policy," Reinhard said. "I
think we should do so."
Faced with overwhelming opposition
to the bill, Rosen attempted unsuccessful
ly to amend the proposal to make it more
acceptable to the council. He proposed
banning funding of "political organiza
tions," excluding Student Government or
