A rainy Knight in
Georgia for Heels
By MICHAEL DeSISTI
ATLANTA Indiana's Bobby Knight had been looking for
a starting lineup for 30 games when he sent his Hoosiers out
against the nation's No. 1 team. He probably wasn't expecting
to find one then, but more than that, he probably wasn't expec
ting another chance.
Indiana received an unexpected and indefinite extension on its
1980 season Thursday night with a stunning 72-68 win over
North Carolina before 16,723 disbelieving" fans in The Omni.
The Hoosiers' NCAA East Regional victory sends them up
against Virginia Saturday at noon for a ticket to Seattle.
North Carolina had pared a 59-47 Indiana lead with 6:56 to
play to a two-point advantage before the Hoosiers' Steve Alford
hit both ends of three consecutive pne-and-one attempts, the last
one giving Indiana a 66-60 lead with 1:42 left in the game.
The freshman point guard, who leads the nation in free throw
shooting, was nine of 10 from the line and nine of 13 from the
field against North Carolina, scoring 27 points.
Ironically, the same stripe that eventually won the game for
the Hoosiers, was almost responsible for seeing it slip away.
With the score 59-50 with five minutes remaining. North
Carolina four times put Indiana in a one-and-one situation with
quick fouls. Four times the Tar Heels saw the Hoosiers miss,
and four times they converted on the other end of the court
three for baskets and one for a foul shot.
Then came Alford.
"I think that as is often the case when things get tight, the big
lead is crucial to our win," Knight said. "It enabled us to sur
vive not so much our mistakes as the missed free throws. The
pressure really gets tough when you start missing free throws
down the stretch."
The Tar Heels played without center Brad Daugherty for
much of the second half, after the sophomore reinjured a ten
don in his hand less than three minutes into the period. Sam
Perkins helped pick up some of the slack with 26 points and nine
rebounds. All-American Michael Jordan finished with 13 points
and fouled out with 1:11 to play." - ; L.r " "
"We felt that Indiana was a good basketball club," Jordan
said. "If they weren't a good team they wouldn't be here.
Coach Knight had them ready to play."
While Perkins and Indiana's Uwe Blab were trading jump
hooks in the first half the Hoosiers were peppering away with
jump shots from the corners of the foul and base lines.
Indiana, known for its shot selection and offensive patience,
shot 62 percent from the field in the first half, and 65 percent for
the game. Alford's 20-foot jump shot at the horn gave the
Hoosiers a 32-28 lead at halftime.

"It was definitely off the other girl's

That bounce of the ball ended what has
been an up-and-down season for the Tar

to only a little disappointment.
"A lot of things didn't quite happen,"
Brown said. "We didn't play bad, and we

"I would hate to say that I can't ask

Although Student Government
Treasury Laws state that each student
organization must submit a monthly
financial report to the student body
treasurer or have their funds frozen, two
student body treasurers have said they did
not enforce that law.
Burke Mewborne, 1983-84 student
body treasurer, and Brent' Clark, who
served as 1982-83 treasurer, said while
they encouraged organizational treasurers
to turn in their monthly reports on time,
they never froze any organization's funds
because of a late report.
Article VI, Section 2 of the Treasury
Laws says the following: "During the last
week of each month (except August and
December) of the academic year, each
OTr (organizational treasurer) shall pre
sent a written report of financial position
to the SBT (student body treasurer), who
shall provide a summary report to the
FCC (finance committee chairperson).
Failure to submit a report acceptable to
the SBT and the FCC shall be cause for
the SBT to freeze the funds of the
organization until an acceptable written
report is received. .,
Mewborne said that during the course
of his year in office, most organizations
did not get their forms in on time, but
those who did not still had access to their
"The organization is supposed to turn
in a monthly report to me," Mewborne

Lou Harris: environment
will be major issue in '84
By KEITH BRADSHER
Almost regardless of cost, the
American voting public favors the exten
ding or strengthening of legislation for
the protection of the environment, said
pollster and columnist Louis Harris
"The American people are well ahead
of their leaders, both the elected and the
self-appointed type," he said.
Sponsored by Carolina Symposium 484
which bears the theme of population
growth, resource depletion and en
vironmental degradation the lecture in
Memorial Hall attracted about 200
students, faculty and area residents.
Public support for some aspects of en
vironmental legislation runs at levels
almost without parallel in current polling
he said. However, the stance of politi
cians on these questions has only begun
to reflect this.
The Reagan Administration in par
ticular continues in ther mistaken belief
that environmental concerns remain only
secondary in the minds of most voters,
Harris said. In fact, the Administration
may be highly vulnerable in November's
elections because of its insensitivity, he
said. In a recent poll a quarter of the like
ly voters said they would vote against
Reagan just on the basis of environmen
tal issues, Harris said.
"It is my judgment that 1984 will be a
big year for environmental issues," he
said. "I will stake my reputation on
In 1981 the Clean Air Act and the
Clean Water Act faced extinction or gut

Unaware of public opinion, congressmen
and senators generally supported more
lax standards for auto emissions and
waste disposal, he said.
Out of its own pocket Harris' polling

"I never froze the funds as the results
of not getting a financial statement in,'
Clark said. "I did have reports from the
treasurers, I kept up with the treasurers'
reports, and I knew who didn't turn them
in, and I would get in touch with them."
Patricia Wallace, chairperson of the
Campus Governing Council's Rules and
i Judiciary Committee, said the treasurer
shouldn't make it a "hardship" for stu
dent organizations to continue spending
their funds and should try to work with
them, even though it is a violation of the
Treasury Laws not to submit the monthly
Mewborne also explained the
discrepancy in figures of Student Govern
ment's current financial situation bet
ween him and the Student Activities Fund
Office that was reported in Tuesday's
Daily Tar Heel.
"The figure of $5,700 (according to
SAFO records) is a cash figure,"
Mewborne said Thursday. "Mine wasn't.
I was giving you a rough estimate of how
much we've got to spend through this
year (including assets not listed under
cash in SAFO's totaling about $25,000)."
James Exum, former CGC speaker,
said he thought there had been a "per
sonality clash" between Mewborne and
SAFO Director Frances Sparrow, and
that a few problems had occurred in the
accounting end of Student Government.
"What's happened is that this is
something that has built up throughout
See TREASURY on page 4
"There is no clash between my figure and
the SAFO figure, the only discrepancy is that
SAFO does not include the DTH loan and the
Student fees and I do," Mewborne said.
The Finance Committee voted to authorize
a referendum to increase student activities fees
by $1.50 per semester. The bill must be ap
proved by the full CGC meeting Monday
night before it is final.

As a result, a majority of the members

Harris, a 1942 graduate of UNC, in
vented the techniques that make early
election-night victory predictions possi
ble. But he resents the uses to which his
creation has been put.
The results of exit polls are not highly
accurate and should not be released until
after all polling booths have been closed,
Harris said. "Fundamentally, what
you've got here in the name of the First
Amendment is a serious violation of the
sanctity of any individual's vote."
Gender has become a major factor in
attitudes. "Men and women are like day
