Authorities lead Mike Boyd Evans (center) to a waiting police car after he barricaded himself in a Ruffin dormitory room Wednesday night.
Student awaiting charges
By KAREN YOUNGBLOOD
A man armed with a .32-caliber revolver locked
himself in a second-floor room in Ruffin dormitory
Wednesday night, causing University police to
evacuate residents and spend more than two hours
trying to get the man out of the building.
Michael Boyd Evans, -25," a graduate student at
UNC, entered the room of Kelly Grady around 7:05
p.m., witnesses said. Grady, a junior from Danville,
Va., had taken out a warrant on Evans on March
13, charging him with assault in an incident that
occurred near Ruffin. The warrant listed his address
as 5-E Kingswood Apartments.
Police talked to Evans on the phone while he
remained in Grady's room. Frederic W. Schroeder
Jr., dean of students, talked to Evans on the phone
before going to the room to talk to him in person
for an hour. Schroeder, along with police, brought
Evans peacefully from the dorm and accompanied
him to N.C. Memorial Hospital, where Evans is
Police escorted Evans to a car. He was wearing
a khaki jacket, blue jeans and brown loafers. While
photographers snapped pictures, Evans called the
press "self-serving media pigs."
Evans will be arrested once police decide on the
charges, said Robert E. Sherman, director of
University police. Police will go before a magistrate
Thursday to decide what charges to file against
'' Evans. '; ' '
A Daily Tar Heel reporter talked with Evans on
the phone while he was in Ruffin. When the reporter
asked to speak to Grady, Evans said she was not
"She's OK, she's fine," Evans said. "She's OK,
believe me." When asked what he was doing in the
room, Evans replied, "Well, I'm pretty much causing
the problem. Believe me, you're going to read about
it in the paper."
A Bell Tower security guard, who asked not to
be identified, said not all the girls on the second
floor were evacuated.
Contacted while Evans remained in Ruffin, a.
second-floor resident who was not evacuated said
she was scared.
"I wish they'd let me out," said Brigitte Cao, a
freshman from Raleigh. "I just want out."
Cao said at least two other women were in the
dorm and that her roommate had been evacuated.
She was not sure why all the women were not out
of the dorm. "I'm sure they wanted us all to leave,"
Police said it was not an oversight that everyone
was not evacuated. Sherman said that in a situation
such as this, police would often initially ask women
to stay in their rooms with their doors locked.
Tammy Carroll, a junior from Durham, said she
heard screams while she was in her third-floor room
and said residents were evacuated soon afterward.
"I was in my room," Carroll said. "We heard
screaming, and we thought people were fooling
around. They (the resident assistants) went around
knocking on doors.
"It certainly is the most exciting thing to happen
to Ruffin this year."

Cmirltomfmhely linked to Webb campaign
By JILL GERBER
A press release from an unknown
source circulated among the local media
has falsely named N.C. Assistant
Attorney General Richard H. Carlton
as campaign manager for Woody
Webb, an undeclared Democratic
candidate in the 1986 Fourth District
Carlton, who served as campaign
director for Rufus Edmisten's 1984
gubernatorial campaign, denied any
association with Webb and the undoc
umented release. He also denied a quote
attributed to him calling Republican
Congressman Bill Cobey "an embar
rassment to the thinking people of the
"I did my thing with the Edmisten
campaign. I'm out of politics right
now," said Carlton."Somebody's been
manufacturing quotes that I said. I have
an idea of who did it but I don't want
Woody Webb said the release was
totally false. He said it might have been
sent by an individual who was embit
tered with Richard Carlton as a result
of the 1984 gubernatorial race.
Jennette Mclnnis, a Raleigh secretary
whose name and hdme phone number
appeared on the release as the infor
mation contact, said she was in no way
involved with its compostion or disper
sal and called the attention generated
by the release "annoying."
"It's just been a lot of bad publicity.
Dick (Richard Carlton) and I are getting
into trouble," said Mclnnis.
John King, Administrative Assistant
to Bill Cobey, said a copy of the release
was sent to him by WPJL radio in
Raleigh. He was suspicious of the
information because it had not been in
any newspapers, he said.
"I do know that it (the release) was
circulated to other places. It also went
to several radio stations," said King.
Jim Stephens, program director for
WPJL, said the release appeared on his
desk one day in an unmarked envelope.
He said the quote calling Cobey an
"embarrassment" offended him, and he
sent it to the Congressman's office. He
was not aware that the release was a
fake, he said.
"It came to my desk several days after
there wasan article in the (Raleigh)
News and Observer about several
Democrats potentially running for
Congress," said Stephens.
The purpose of the bogus release was
to make Richard Carlton look as if were
campaigning on the job in the Justice
Department, said Tom Merkel, Woody
Webb's true campaign coordinator. The
dispersal of the fake release could have
serious repercussions because the
practice of politicizing on state time is
strictly forbidden by Attorney General
Lacy H. Thornburg, he said.
unity stressed despite
reservations of SBP
By STUART TONKINSON
Student Body President Patricia
Wallace signed into law a bill Wednes
day night calling for a campuswide
referendum to be held April 18 on the
mandatory meal plan.
Although Wallace earlier said she had
some reservations about the bill, she
said she signed it to show student
harmony about concerns with the plan,
which next year will require each on
campus student to pay a minimum of
$100 per semester for a meal plan.
"It's important that Student Govern
ment try to maintain a united front on
the issue," Wallace said.
The Campus Governing Council
voted to have the referendum after a
group of students issued a report that
challenged UNC administrators' claims
that students wanted the meal plan.
Just before recent campus elections,
former Student Body President Paul
Parker vetoed a similar referendum on
the grounds that the meal plan was "set
"The fact is, we have it, and we have
to work with it," Parker said at the time.
He added that the referendum would
mislead students into thinking they
could change the views of the UNC
Board of Trustees.
Wallace agreed with Parker that a
referendum would have little impact on
"The referendum itself will not have
that great an effect," she said Wednes
day. Reasons for establishing the meal
plan are financial in nature, not
popular, she said.
In other words, the Trustees were
concerned with establishing the finan
cial security of ARA, the campus dining
service, not with satisfying the popular
will of students, she said.
"The Trustees felt there was a need
for a guaranteed usership (of dining
services)," she said.
Wallace said she would not actively
campaign in favor of the referendum
because there already was a campaign
organization performing that duty.
"There's already an organization in
place that's drumming up support," she
said, referring to the student-based
Committee Against the Meal Plan.
Wallace said she instead would try
to educate students about what the real
effect of the referendum will be. "It's
an opinion poll," she said.
Wallace said she would prefer to fight
the meal plan by convincing UNC
administrators that it was unnecessary,
not by showing numbers of students
opposed to it. Because the meal plan
is based on financial considerations, she
said, opposition to the meal plan should
be based on the same consideration.
"Get real," she said. "That's the way
we're going to change it."
Although the CGC approved the bill
on March 26, Wallace waited until
Wednesday to sign it. If the bill had
not been signed by 9:43 p.m. Wednes
day, the referendum would have been
placed on the ballot without Wallace's

The UNITAS Committee of the
Student Government and the president
of the Resident Hall Association both
have said increasing awareness between
students of different races and back
grounds was an important goal. How
ever they differ considerably on how to
The UNITAS Committee wants 100
student volunteers of different cultures
to live in the same North Campus
dormitory and to attend a class on
cultural awareness together. Tim Cobb,
president of the Residence Hall Asso
ciation, would prefer to move minority
student volunteers to North Campus in
groups of four to eight and will present
that proposal to Director of University
Housing Wayne Kuncl on Friday.
But Mitchell Parks, UNITAS com
mittee chairman, called Cobb's prop
osal tokenism. "By isolating blacks, or
any other distinct minority groups like
this, one can only suppose their exist
ence in the program is token," Parks
said. "What Cobb proposes, is an empty
vessel, a token, cosmetic, blatantly
political symbol that will achieve
nothing to enhance education."
Cobb said his major objection to the
UNITAS project was that it would only
involve students who were already
sensitized to racial and cultural issues.
"The people who are willing to
become a part of UNITAS aren't the
ones who need to improve their race
relations," Cobb said. "I would be
willing to wager that those people are
already extremely aware and appreci
ative of cultural differences. My concern
is for those people who are ignorant
of other races."
Cobb said his plan to move blocks
of four to eight minority students into
different residence halls would do more
to increase racial and cultural awareness
because people who would not ordinar
ily volunteer to live in an integrated
living situation would have the oppor
tunity to, interact with minorities.
Parks disagreed. "Cobb says that the
only people who will participate in the
project will be predisposed to racial
interaction," Parks said. "The main
purpose of the UNITAS project is
education, not providing experimental
bodies for some pseudo-cosmetic racial
Parks added that he questioned
Cobb's motives for writing a letter to
The Daily Tar Heel criticizing UNI
TAS. While Cobb said he based his
evaluations of the proposed UNITAS
project on his observations while he
served as RHA representative to the
University Relations Committee. Parks
said there was no such representative.
"If there was (an RHA representative
to the University Relations Commmit
tee), Cobb never expressed this fact
during the few meetings he attended,"
Parks said. "His lack of attendance also
points to a lack of commitment and
concern for the issue at hand." Parks
estimated that out of about 15 Univer
sity Relations Committee meetings last
year, Cobb attended only three.
But Cobb said he attended every
meeting he was contacted about. "From
the very beginning, there was a com
munication problem between Herman
Bennett (former co-chair of the Univer
sity Relations Committee) and RHA,"
Cobb said. When asked if he had only

Old foes towy -Heels in miiitlii 4-1
By LEE ROBERTS
Events down at Boshamer Stadium Wednesday afternoon
bore a striking resemblance to those two weeks before in
N.C. State exploded for four runs in the ninth inning
to snatch a 4-1 baseball win from North Carolina. Two weeks
earlier, the Wolfpack had scored three times in their last
at-bat to score a 6-4 victory over the Tar Heels.
The heroes in this Wolfpack rerun were also the same
ones who had downed UNC in Raleigh. Mick Billmeyer,
who had hit a home run in the first game, hit a crucial
double in the rally Wednesday that scored two runs and
gave the Wolfpack a 2-1 lead. Andrew Fava, who had won
the March 28 game with a three-run homer, followed
Billmeyer's smash with a home run to make it 4-1. And
Paul Grossman, who had defeated the Tar Heels earlier,
won again with a five-hit, five-strikeout effort.
The rally ruined what had been a strong pitching
performance by the Tar Heels' Brad Powell, who allowed
three hits and struck out nine.
But, as N.C. State coach Sam Esposito said later, "Those
walks will kill you."
"Those walks" were a walk by Powell to the Wolfpack's
Bob Marczak to lead off the ninth and a walk by reliever
Todd Kopczynski to the next batter, Doug Strange.
Kopczynski had entered the game when Powell went to a
2-0 count on Strange.
It would have been easy to second-guess North Carolina
coach Mike Roberts for lifting Powell until you consider
that Kopczynski brought a 6-1 record with him to the mound.
by far the best of the relief corps.
Billmeyer's double came with one out, after Kopczynski
had struck out Alex Wallace. Then came Fava's shot, a homer
to left-centerfield that bounced off the light pole. The win
put State at 26-14 on the season and 6-5 in ACC play. North
Carolina is now 32-13-1, and 7-4-1 in the conference.
Fava said of his home run that he had just tried to hit
the ball up the middle, since he had had a hard time with
submarine-style pitchers like Kopczynski. "They're hard
pitchers to hit," Fava said. "I got it all. I couldn't have got
any more of it."
Roberts was not upset with his pitcher. "I felt Todd could
get the job done," Roberts said. "He's done a good job all
year. Good relievers have bad days."
Meanwhile, Powell blamed himself for the loss. He said
he should have finished the game. "I felt a little tired, but
it was nothing 1 couldn't handle," he said. "I just choked."
Powell surely wasn't choking over the first eight innings,
when he shut down the Wolfpack on an assortment of pitches.
Six of his nine strikeouts were called.
"That Powell is a nice pitcher," Billmeyer said. "I thought
he had great stuff. He was killing me all day."
Grossman, meanwhile, was doing some killing of his own.
He had a no-hitter through five innings, and fell behind
in the sixth on a Walt Weiss squib hit, a B.J. Surhoff fly
ball and a Chris Lauria (now hitting .353) single. It was
Grossman's eighth win of the year against only one loss,
a victory record for Wolfpack freshmen.
"Paul has been just outstanding for us this year," Esposito
