The Midshipmen of Navy made sure of that Saturday. After dominating most of the first half, the Tar Heels blew a 15-point lead, committing four second-half turnovers and a series of defensive miscues, and fell to Navy in the season-opener at Kenan Stadium, 33-30. . This was a game the Tar Heels had locked up apparently. With UNC up 21-6 late in the first half and driving for another apparent score, and with quarterbacks Mark Maye and Kevin Anthony perfect through 10 passes, there seemed to be nothing short of a battleship's anti-aircraft guns that would help the Middies. But this Navy team wasn't content to rely solely on the running of Heisman candidate Napoleon McCallum, and was very willing to exploit a tenuous UNC defense with clutch passing, something the Midshipmen haven't been known for since the Roger Staub ach days of the 1960s. Quarterbacks Bill Byrne and Bob Misch, who shared time in the Navy backfield, completed only 18 of 41 passes, but those 18 were pivotal, most of them coming on third-and-long situations. The biggest of those was Byrne's 60-yard heave under pressure to tailback Rich. Clouse to . put Navy ahead by the final margin with 2:24 to play. Byrne, forced out of the pocket and apparently on the verge of being sacked, found Clouse wide open down the center of the field. Clouse had blows by UNC linebacker Troy Simmons and free safety Tim Morrison, after both defenders had slowed up on the coverage. "I thought Byrne had got sacked," Clouse said of the decisive play. "Everyone slowed down and I looked and there was a big split in the middle of the field. (Simmons) slowed down and I slowed down, and suddenly the ball popped up in the air." Clouse was a good five yards ahead of Simmons on the catch, and he breezed into the end zone, shocking the crowd of 49,500 at Kenan. Simmons, who led the UNC defense with 12 tackles, admitted that there was a breakdown on the play. "I slowed down and I shouldn't have," he said. "When you're playing man-to-man youVe got to be covering him." Simmons exemplified the kind of day the Tar Heels had the execution was there most of the time, but when it was off, it was way off.; Library gets quiet areas By MIKE ALLEN Staff Writer Students who need a noise-free environment in which to study may finally have their prayers answered. Effective today, the upper floor of the Undergraduate Library will be designated a quiet area. According to Head Librarian David Taylor, the staff received more complaints about noise during the past two years than any other time in the history of the library. The upper floor will be an absolute quiet area, Taylor said. "I dont mean to imply that the rest of the library will be raucous. A little background noise (on the two lower floors) is fine, but distinct conversation is not," Taylor said. Although the upper floor will not have a full time monitor, the library staff will respond to complaints about noise and will ask noisemakers to leave. In addition, the telephones on the lower floor will be placed in the foyer of the building. Student Government Execu tive Vice President Mark Scurria said Student Government approved of the changes.

But overeagerness cost the Tar Heels 15 yards when they roughed the punter. "We did some good things and some bad things," UNC defensive coordina tor Denny Marcin said. "But there were too many bad things. They threw the ball a little bit more than we thought they would. They did a good job mixing their plays." Good, indeed. The Midshipmen used McCallum 19 times on the ground, brushing through both sides of the UNC defensive line for 117 yards. J3ut contrary to the past, when McCallum was the Navy offense, coach Gary Tranquill's team was able Ferraro's son campaigns locally By MARK POWELL Staff Writer John Zaccaro Jr., son of Democratic vice presidential candidate Rep. Geral dine Ferraro, said in Chapel Hill yesterday afternoon that Ronald Rea gan is mortgaging the future of Amer ica's youth. "Young people have the most to lose in this election," Zaccaro, a 20-year-old student on leave from Middlebury College in Vermont, said in an interview in the Carolina Coffee Shop. "It's my future President Reagan is mortgaging.

But that was before cable had appeared as an alternative to network programming! For on-campus students, however, that alternative is currently unavailable. And many of those stu dents disagree about the effects of installing cable service for residence halls.

"We knew that we would have to throw the ball come hell or high water," Tranquill said. "This proves that you're not out of the game until the final whistle. Our intention was to throw the ball because they were keying on Napoleon." McCallum, who led the nation in all purpose yardage last year, did feel the pressure. "UNC was hitting very hard on defense. They filled the holes real well. I couldn't break tackles like I usually did. (Simmons) was after me all day. They gave it to me." But UNC didnt give Navy the game. Despite the turnovers, three of the Navy touchdown drives were for 80, 76 and mental Protection Agency director. Zaccaro said a Reagan victory in November would mean more conser vativism and less funding for education and protection for civil rights. Due to the ages of liberal justices William Brennan and Thurgood Marshall, Zaccaro said Reagan's conservative replacements could bring a long string of conservative decisions from the U.S. Supreme Court. "It's a very important election and the Democrats are the better candi dates," he said. When asked whether Democratic presidential candidate Walter Mondale bowed to pressure from the National Organization of Women, which, had threatened a floor fight at the Demo "With cable we could pick up. ESPN and MTV." But Ben Phelps, a sophomore from Wilson, said having cable in his Alex ander dormitory would be a distraction. Cable television can now be received only off campus and in Odum Village, married-student housing. Proposals to install cable on campus will be evaluated by a University committee in October. Jeff West, a sophomore from Char lotte, said," "If they put it (cable) in, it would be used." James Toner, a junior from Chicago, said students would watch more tele vision if cable were installed.

The only gimme came when linebacker Greg Schildmeyer picked off a Kevin Anthony pass early in the second half, allowing the Middies to set up house at the UNC 11. That led to a Navy score to make it 21-19. For sophomore Anthony and fresh man quarterback Mark Maye, Satur day's experience had the makings of an All-American day, but turned sour when their inexperience came into full focus in the second half. Playing almost equal time in the first half, the QB tandem connected on the first 10 pass attempts Anthony with crisp, short- to medium-range shots and Maye with a 31-yard toss to split end Eric Streater for UNC's only passing TD. But when Schildmeyer moved in See FOOTBALL on page 6 cratic National Convention if a woman vice president was not nominated, Zaccaro said Mondale's choice was based on Ferraro's qualifications. "She was the best qualified candidate and shell be one of the best vice presidents weVe had," he said, citing Ferraro's membership on the House Budget Committee and experience visiting foreign nations. Zaccaro said Ferraro had benefited from her 1977 visit to Italy after the earthquake which devastated a portion of that country, and numerous visits to Lebanon and other countries in the Middle East. "She knows her foreign policy," he said. Zaccaro predicted a Mondale Ferraro victory over Reagan-Bush in November. for cable TV would be something on other than Mr. Ed' reruns," he said. Lin Evans, a sophomore from Salis bury, said when he lived in Avery dormitory he had gone to restaurants in Chapel Hill to watch cable. Now Evans lives in Granville Towers, which has cable. "It's great," he said. "We live two doors down from the lounge, and now we can stick our head in to see what's on TV."

Friday made it official when he told the UNC Board of Governors he would resign his post by July 1986. The BOG asked Friday to remain at his post until that date. Friday has long supported retirement at age 65 for chancelors of state universities, but recent state law requires only that state government employes to retire by age 70. Friday will turn 65 July 13. The BOG meeting opened Friday morning and imme diately went into a 30-minute execu tive session, which they said would con cern a personnel matter. When the meeting reopened, William A. John son, the board's second chairman, announced that the 'A Friday board had drawn a resolution to accept Friday's retirement notice in July 1986. "I will have been privileged to have been here 30 years in this position," Friday told the BOG. "If the year 1986 is in the best interest of the University, then that's what we will do." Friday said he would give the board official written notice of his retirement at the start of the next academic year, giving them a year to find a replacement. After making a brief statement to the board, Friday urged them to continue with general business. "Let's put this behind us and get back to work," he said. "WeVe been talking too long. WeVe got a lot to do." He also told them he expected the transition to a new president to be a smooth one. "I am privileged to work here with some of the finest people in the world. They know what they're doing and they do it well. To this end I want you to know there isnt going to be any lame duck administration around here." Alcohol-related accidents higher this year than last By GEORGIA MARTIN Staff Writer Since the fall semester began, Student Health Services has hada larger number of alcohol-related incidents than during the same time period in previous years, and SHS physicians want to know why. An increase in accidents related to the use of alcohol is usually expected at the first home football game, said Bruce Vukoson, an SHS physician, but this year the SHS did not have to wait for a game. "I'm afraid somebody on this campus will end up dying as a result of alcohol," Vukoson said. "It scares me. It's really a wasted way to die." Sue Gray, director of Health Edu cation at SHS, said students needed to be aware of how serious alcohol could be if it was consumed in excessive quantities. "It's not that we're telling' students not to drink. We just want them to know there's a limit to how much their bodies can handle," Gray said. "Overconsump tion of alcohol can be lethal. We want to make students aware of what the real problems are." Just last week, doctors at SHS were faced with several students suffering Hurricane!

The announcement ended weeks of speculation about his retirement. Prior to the announcement, he hadnt given any indication about whether he would remain in office until age 70 or would do what was originally expected give a one-year notice. During a break in the meeting, Friday said he didnt expect the UNC admin istration to change drastically with his departure. "What universities stand for and who they serve stay pretty much die same over time," he said. "There are many things (to be) proud of, for the people's sake, not because of my accomplishments," Friday said. "IVe just been lucky enough to watch it happen." BOG Chairman Philip G. Carson commended the Friday administration for its record. "It's not the number (of years in office) that is important," Carson said. "It's the quality and accomplishments of this administration." Friday has been the only president of the 16-campus system, and no speculation was given at the meeting as to who would be a candidate to secede him. After one year at Wake Forest College, Friday entered N.C. State College (now North Carolina State University in Raleigh) and received a degree in textile engineering in 1941. Afterwards, he served as assistant to the dean of students at State - - He served as a Naval officer in World War II, and then entered law school at UNC, graduating in 1948. He became assistant dean of students at UNC, and in 1951 was appointed administrative assistant to then president, Gordon Gray. When Gray resigned the UNC pre sidency in 1955 and his successor, J. Harris Purks, also resigned, Friday was named acting president. He became president in 1956, when the system was composed of three universities. from cuts, gashes, lacerations and head injuries received while the students were intoxicated, Vukoson said. Many of the wounds required stitches. "It's very difficult to make a positive assessment on someone who's very drunk," Vukoson said. He added it was especially frustrating for a doctor to deal with a patient who was hostile and resisting medical care. Dr. Rose Shalom, a practicioner at SHS, said many of the students who had been to the SHS with alcohol related problems so far this semester were underclassmen. "Is it the Get it while you can' syndrome?" he asked, questioning whether or not the proposed 21 -year-old drinking age for all alcoholic beverages could possible be a cause for the problem. "We want them to know that next time it may be their best friend who's hurt or in an accident," Gray said. "We want them to think about it." "Students need to realize there are limits to what we (SHS) can do for traumas that occur from alcohol con sumption," Shalom said.
