Carolina is curious;
topples No. 14 Tigers

By CHARLES LEDFORD
North Carolina was curious.
"We just wanted to see why this team
was ranked higher than us," UNC's Tresa
Brown said of the No. 14 Clemson Tigers,
who visited Carmichael Auditorium
And after a 69-61 North Carolina win,

dering the same thing.
North Carolina improved its record to
17-2 overall and 7-0 in the ACC with the
win, while Clemson fell to 15-4, 7-2.
Not that the No. 15 Tar Heels domi
nated the game or overwhelmed the
Tigers, because they didn't.
At least not in the first half when, with
North Carolina shooting 36 percent from
the field, Clemson went into the locker
room with a 28-24 lead.
But a 12-2 North Carolina scoring spree
in the first four minutes of the second
half proved key in the Tar Heels' ninth
straight win, building on coach Jennifer
Alley's finest start ever.
"We had a lot of confidence coming
out of the locker room," Alley said. "We
were hurt on the boards in the first half
and with our transition defense. In the se
cond half we did both well. Defense
definitely won the game."
Brown, the high scorer in the game,
had 21 points and 6 rebounds. Junior for

North Carolina shot 66 percent from
the field during the second half.
Ironically enough, though North
Carolina closed the rankings gap Mon
day, it wasn't because of the win.
The Tar Heels went into the game
ranked No. 18, while Clemson came in at
No. 15. The new rankings came out at
halftime, with the Tigers still holding a
four-point advantage, and thus did not
reflect the events which resulted in UNC's
When told of the climb in the polls,
Alley was pleased.

informed of the latest ranking, North

She looked like a star furs, pearls, sparkling
eyes and winning smile. But gospel star Shirley
Caesar retained the friendliness of a hometown girl.
Shirley Caesar, a native of Durham, was at the
Carolina Theatre in Durham Jan. 20 for an advance
press screening of the new concert film Gospel, which
features Caesar and other big-name gospel groups.
A beautifully mournful acapella voice accom
panies the opening credits of the film, setting the
mood for more than 1 Vi hours of today's best gospel
UNC's Marlene List gets Clemson's Jacqui Jones
in air; North Carolina took Tigers, 69-61.
Opening the "concert" are The Mighty Clouds of
Joy. Their second number, "Walk Around
Heaven," is an incredible exhibition of vocal talent.
Paul Beasley sings the song in a remarkable falsetto
voice. His seemingly endless sustained high notes
demonstrated the technique and beauty that reveal
gospel music as a true art form.
Shirley Caesar follows The Mighty Clouds of Joy.
During her rousing three-song segment, Caesar
justifies her self-given name, "The Electrifying
Evangelist." Rather than just singing gospel tunes,
she actually preaches in song. Her song "No
Charge" begins as a spoken story and gradually
develops into an energetic, touching ballad without
the audience's even noticing the transition. But what
is most stunning about Caesar's performance is her
beautiful voice, remaining powerful when soft and
melodious when strong.
Walter Hawkins and the Family follow Shirley
Caesar with a rocking choral performance. One of
Actresses performances bolster structural flaws in Agnes' Exum
r$ at preview
the most interesting things about Walter Hawkins'
group is that there is a middle-aged white woman in
the choir. Her presence subtly demonstrates that
gospel music is a universal art form that knows no
bounds of age or race.
Next, The Clark Sisters, a young and talented
group from Detroit, share their unconventional
brand of gospel. The Clark Sisters' music involves
topics usually ignored by gospel singers drugs and
alcohol. The sister come on stage to announce that
they heard "Jesus is the baddest man in town!" They
go on to use drug and alcohol terminology to talk
about their relationship with God. The technique
works well, as evidenced by the audience's en
Perhaps the nation's best-known gospel per
former, James Cleveland, winds up the show.
Cleveland's throaty bass seems to be the accompani
ment for dancing and hand-clapping rather than the
primary attraction. Cleveland, his choir and his band
expend so much energy on stage that even the au
dience is exhausted when the concert film ends.
After the screening, in the lobby of the theatre,
Shirley Caesar talked about her segment of the film
and about what she is doing.
"This was my first viewing," the contralto said. "I
wish they had filmed from the beginning of the con
cert rather than starting hi the middle, though.
That's why I was sweating!"
Caesar said the clip that appears in Gospel was
filmed on June 12, 1981, at the Paramount Theatre
in San Francisco. "The actual concert was 5Vi hours
long," Caesar said, "and no, they normally don't
last that long."
Caesar said she is currently taking some time off
from touring to go to school. "I'm taking business
management classes at Shaw University," she said.
"But n? ; o graduating soon!"

Lynn Chausow's superb performances
as Agnes, a modern-day Joan of Arc (or
schizophrenic, depending on your point
of view) who talks to angels and demons,
provided a good foil for the two stars.
Mother Miriam Ruth believes that Agnus
is "special" and "touched by God."
Chausow made that attitude plausible.
Eugene Lee's effective all-wood set
design had the advantage of being a very
shallow playing space, so the three ac
tresses and the intimate drama were never
Roger Morgan's lighting was harsh and
pedestrian in the first act but much subtle
and atmospheric in the second. Likewise,
Larry Forde's restaging of Michael
Lindsay-Hogg's New York direction was
commonplace in Act I but more im
aginative in Act II.
Pielmeier's play, however, benefited
from these added second-act strengths. In
the early scenes, Pielmeier sets up a
number of questions and never answers
them in Act II. While this is often accep
table in psychological drama, Pielmeier
asks his questions in such a way that the
ambiguous ending is ultimately unsatisfy
ing. Dramaturgical objections pale,
though, when Agnes of God receives such
a capable production as it did this
weekend. During the performance, the
audience, held spellbound by Stasberg,
Cass and Chausow, had no reason to care
about such matters.

move to censure or expel Exum would
have required approval by a three-fourths
majority of the CGC.
Exum said he did not expect the room
reservation incident to become an issue in
the student body president campaign.
"I have yet to have the Union reserva
tion policy question to come up in any
door-to-door campaigning I have done.
"I think people will see it for what it is
a misunderstanding," he said. "As far
as I know, being the person involved in
this situation, all of the information has
come out." .
But Paul Parker, one of the four other
candidates for student body president,
said he was unsure whether the incident
would be a campaign issue.
"Frankly, that's up to the students to
decide," Parker said. "It didn't sound
very good on the surface, but I'm not the
judge of that. I'm running a campaign
for Paul Parker and not against anyone. I

"Any time a question exists in the

to clear up that question, " Droze said.
As a result of the incident, the Union
should send a memo to the heads of all
student organizations to clarify the room
