Marines fire on
By MICHAEL DcSISTI
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. All the
talk in basketball circles here early in the
season centered on the 7-4 vertical void
left by the departure of Ralph Sampson:
e.g. its likely effects on Virginia's chances
of staying near the top of the ACC and
secure what has become a habitual spot in
the NCAA tournament.
All talk since Tuesday centered on
what coach Terry Holland would have his
team do to be the first to topple the na
tion's No. 1 -ranked team.
The answer? Get smaller.
The outcome? Don't ask.
North Carolina took advantage of an
undersized and outclassed Virginia
lineup, opened up a big lead and left the
No-Doz on the bench with an 85-72 win
in front of a University Hall crowd of
9,000 Thursday. The victory was the Tar
Heels' 21st in a row, coach Dean Smith's
longest winning streak ever.
Ail-American Sam Perkins continued
to enlist the praise of a list of peers as
long as his 41 -inch arms. Perkins scored a
game-high 27 points and pulled down 1 1
rebounds to pass Billy Cunningham as
North Carolina's all-time leading re
bounder with 1 ,072.
Michael Jordan, the other half of the
Tar Heels' otherworldly Ail-American
combination, finished with 24 points and
North Carolina moved to 21-0 on the
year, 9-0 in the ACC, while the Cavaliers
slipped to 13-7 and 3-7 in the ACC.
"I think you saw what kind of basket
ball team North Carolina has tonight,"
Holland said. "Perkins and Jordan were
awesome. I don't think I've ever seen
players play as well on court at the same

BEIRUT, Lebanon The U.S. 6th
Fleet bombarded rebel-held ridges out
side Beirut for a second day Thursday
after government and rebel gunners trad
ed artillery barrages around the divided
and devastated city.
Lebanese and Syrian reports claimed
U.S. Navy jets also went into action over
the mountain area Thursday, but a U.S.
military spokesman denied it.
Syria, whose troops occupy the moun
tains with the Druse-Moslem anti
government forces, issued a warning to
the United States.
"Syria cannot stand neutral watching
the barbaric bombardment practiced by
the 6th Fleet against Lebanese civilians,"
the Damascus government radio said, ad
ding that the Syrians "may be compelled
There were no reports Thursday that
the 1,400 U.S. Marines dug in at the air
port on Beirut's southern edge had come
under renewed fire.
The U.S. Embassy here said it was not
yet considering a general evacuation of
the estimated 1,500 U.S. citizens in bat
In Washington, one Reagan ad
ministration official reportedly said the
phased withdrawal of the Marines from
the Beirut airport area could take as long
as early summer.
The American shelling of Beirut is sole
ly to defend the multinational force in
Lebanon and not to prop up the
country's tottering government, White
House spokesman Larry Speakes said
About 50 more U.S. Embassy em
ployees and dependents were airlifted
from Lebanon by helicopter Thursday to
ships offshore, U.S. Marine spokesman
Maj. Dennis Brooks said. That brought
to about 140 thus far the number of
American civilians removed for transfer
Lebanon's embattled Christian presi
dent, the U.S.-supported Amin Gemayel,
remained out of sight Thursday.
Gemayel, whose Moslerri-Christiair
Cabinet resigned last weekend, is trying
to patch together a new "national coali
tion" government. But his Syrian-backed
Lebanese enemies demand that he resign.
Gemayel's position suffered a major
blow early this week when Shiite Moslem
and Druse militiamen took control of
west Beirut, driving out army troops and
Christian militiamen. Thousands of army
soldiers have defected to Gemayel's op
ponents. Along the "Green Line" separating
Moslem west from Christian east Beirut,
sporadic small arms and shell fire was
heard Thursday. Local radio reports said
army troops also clashed with militiamen
in the port area and the Shiite-populated
As night fell Thursday, Christian
neighborhoods in east Beirut came under
sustained bombardment, apparently
from artillerymen in Syrian-occupied
Artillery of the Lebanese army and
Christian militia pounded population
centers in the Druse-controlled hills
southeast of the city and in Shiite
suburbs, the Druse-controlled radio said.
The Christian militia is an arm of the
right-wing Phalange Party, headed by the
president's father, Pierre Gemayel.
The 6th Fleet destroyer Moosbrugger,
in response to the shelling of east Beirut,
fired its five-inch guns, Brooks said.
President Reagan, in a policy statement
Tuesday announcing that the 1,400 U.S.
Marines in Beirut would be withdrawn in
the coming weeks, also said 6th Fleet
ships would retaliate against anyone
.firing on Beirut "from parts of Lebanon
controlled by Syria."
On Wednesday, the battleship New
Jersey and destroyer Caron hammered
military targets in Syrian-controlled areas
in a half-day-long barrage. Lebanese
government sources said both Druse and
Syrian military positions were destroyed.
But on Thursday, as uneasiness
mounted in U.S. Congress over the ex
panded American role in the Lebanese
. conflict, Speakes restated the U.S. policy
on use of the 6th Fleet guns.

Second in a series on candidates for
Education, economy, environment
agriculture, adequate transportation,
housing and hiring are areas Democratic
gubernatorial candidate Robert L. Han
non plans to stress if elected governor.
"I propose to raise teacher's salaries at
the entry level to $20,000 a year," Han
non said in a recent interview. "And in
crease salaries 15-20 percent across the
board for all other public school
teachers." I would do this by increasing
taxes on alcohol to cover the costs."
Hannon did not quote an increase figure,
but said he would study the proposal and
Hannon, 68, is a retired educator who
lives in Greensboro.
"I also propose a clean environment
one where water, soil and air are free of
pollution and where hazardous wastes are
properly disposed of," he said.
Economy and economic growth are
important issues affecting the state, and
Hannon said he intended to recruit new
industries to the state that would provide
jobs for all people. "It is important that
jobs be offered to all citizens free of racial
and sexual discrimination," he said.
"That will be my major concern."
Hannon expressed dissatisfaction over
U.S. Secretary of Agriculture John
Block's policies, which.he said, have been
forcing farmers off their land. "I want to
make sure the economic conditions of
farmers are improved when I am gover
nor," he said.
"We must also have adequate
transportation facilities in this state," he
said. "Eastern North Carolina has not
been able to get economic growth like it
should because the highways have not
been properly developed. The rest of the
state also needs better roads to develop
industry proportionately throughout the
Hannon said that there was a need for
more housing to accommodate people of
all income groups but that all such hous
ing would have to be available without
prejudices or violations to the Fair Hous
ing Act. "Many people are excluded from
housing for discriminatory reasons," he
said. "There needs to be a solid enforce-

ment of the Fair Housing Act, as well as a
greater availability of housing. This
should be developed in cooperation with
the federal government and private in
dustry." A hiring program that would be free of
race and sex discrimination and would in-
elude the elderly, handicapped, poor and
other members of society is what Hannon
calls a pressing need in North Carolina.

Frank Winstead, a candidate for four student offices, has
asked the Student Supreme Court to delay campuswide elections
set for Tuesday, contending that The Daily Tar Heel has not
provided adequate coverage of his campaigns.
Winstead is also seeking an injunction to prevent the DTH
from spending student fees until the dispute is resolved.
Student Supreme Court Chief Justice J.B. Kelly said he
would attempt to convene the court today to consider
After reviewing the Student Code, Kelly said he believed the
court had the power to delay the election, but he said he
doubted the court could prevent the newspaper from spending
student fees before the conclusion of the case.
Winstead, a junior from Rocky Mount, is running for Stu
dent Body President, Residence Hall Association president,
Carolina Athletic Association president and DTH editor.
Winstead has requested that the DTH run four separate
front-page stories announcing his candidacies. DTH Editor
Kerry DeRochi accepted a proposal from Elections Board
Chairman Andy Sutherland to run an extended front-page story
on Winstead, outlining his platforms for the four offices, but
Winstead rejected Sutherland's proposal.
"Who screwed up?" Winstead asked In an interview Thurs
day. "If the election is delayed, it is the DTHs fault, not mine.
"I just want what the other candidates have been given. I'd be
satisfied with equal coverage." .'.
The Elections Board rejected Winstead's complaint Monday,
ruling that his campaign announcements could be adequately
covered in a single story. The board ruled that Winstead was "a
single candidate seeking four offices."
"We will hold the election as scheduled on Feb. 14 unless we
receive an order by the Supreme Court to suspend it,"
Sutherland said. "I will do my job to produce a fair and objec
tive, legally defensible election."
The complaint alleges that Sutherland did not live up to his
duty to mediate the dispute between Winstead and the
newspaper. "(Sutherland's) attempts at mediation were
unreasonable, ineffectual and inconclusive," the complaint
states. "No opportunity for Defendant Winstead to reply to
The Daily Tar Heel actions has been provided as required by
Sutherland said Winstead simply refused to accept the results
of the mediation.
"In my opinion, I gave him adequate, opportunity to
respond," Sutherland said. "He chose to reject the compromise
(of a single extended story), maintaining his right to four
separate declarations of candidacy."
Winstead said in Thursday's interview the DTH was being in
consistent in its coverage. While .the paper has offered him only
one announcement story, it has allowed him to respond two
separate times on the editorial page to written questions the
newspaper submits to all candidates.
DeRochi said the front-page announcement and the editorial
page questions and answers served different purposes.
"For the back page, we ask the questions, we solicit the infor
mation," she said. "The candidate announcements are a
See WINSTEAD on page 3
Editor candidates discuss back page
Possible solutions to problems on the editorial
page of The Daily Tar Heel were discussed by
candidates for DTH editor Thursday during
forums sponsored by the Interfraternity Council
and the Panhellenic Council and Scott
Residence College. The forum, jointly spon
sored by the . Carolina Gay Association,
Association of Women Students, and ECOS,
was canceled because of low. attendance.
"It's my personal opinion that editorials
begin on the front page and continue onto the
back page," said Frank Winstead, a candidate
for four offices. He said if he is elected, the
DTH would not have an editorial policy.
John Conway said he thought there had been
"an adversarial role formed between The Daily
Tar Heel and the Campus Governing Council,"
something he would strive to alleviate if elected.
When asked to cite specific examples of irre
sponsibility in editorials, Jeff Hiday recalled
two instances. "The Padraic Baxter letter on the
Homecoming Queen was one," he said. "I
think that students weren't clear about where
that was coming from. Also, at least one Cen
tral America editorial."
Christine Manuel said: "I think that the
editorial policy toward President Reagan has
been rather predictable this year."
CAA presidential candidates Mark Barnhill,
Jeff Byrd, Will Conner, Jennie Edmundson and
Frank" Winstead discussed their plans to im
prove the CAA.
For homecoming, Barnhill said he would
have a pig pickin' and band. On Saturday night,
he would plan to have a formal dance for
students in Woollen Gym.
"My main proposal for homecoming is to'
promote the unification of the town, faculty
and students," Byrd said.
Edmundson said she hadN been frustrated by
the lack of . information available to students
about athletic programs on campus. "I propose
a paper with anything that could be classified as
exercise on this campus," she said.
Concerning seats in the Student Activities
Center, all the candidates said it would be dif
ficult for students to get seats behind the
Carolina bench because alumni already had
been promised them.
Edmundson said students had to show they
contributed to the game. "What I'd like to see is
a silent period during one of the games, from
the 10-minute mark to the 5-minute mark, and
see how loud the alumni are," she said.
Conner said he would like homecoming to be
centered around a charity next year.
All seven candidates for student body presi
dent at the IFCPanhellenic forum stressed the
importance of a good relationship between the
University and the town.
Greg Hecht said an issue of importance to
Greeks was the relationship between them and
the Chapel Hill Town Council, citing as an ex
ample the proposed thoroughfare that would
run through the Kappa Alpha house. Other
fraternities might have found that humorous, he
said, but it was a decision with far-reaching im
plications. The other candidates addressed their wil
lingness to work with the IFC and Panhellenic
Council in the future and said they would try to
ease strained relations between the groups and
the Town of Chapel Hill.
Students Effectively Establishing a
Democratic System announced Thursday its en
dorsement of Christine Manuel for Daily Tar
Heel editor. A representative of the group said
Manuel was chosen because of her promise to
report rapes and assaults on campus, to increase
coverage of women's sports and to return to
publishing the Campus Calendar daily, which
would make it easier for progressive groups to
announce spontaneous protests of national
