C.D. Spangler Jr., a Charlotte businessman
and chairman of the state Board of Education,
has been named the next UNC System president
to replace retiring William C. Friday.
The UNC Board of Governors unanimously
approved his selection Friday morning. The
announcement was made by Phillip G. Carson
of Asheville, chairman of the BOG and the II
member search committee, which chose
Spangler after reviewing more than 100 appli
cations for the president's post.
Friday, who has been president for almost
30 years, announced in late 1984 his plans to
retire by July 1986. He became the first president
of the university system in 1956, when there were
only three campuses.
Friday said he had known Spangler for several
years and had the "fullest confidence in him."
He said he had played no part in choosing the
Spangler, 53, is president of two family-owned
companies, CD. Spangler Construction Co. and
Golden Eagle Industries Inc. He has announced
that he will resign from those positions when
he assumes office.
Spangler also is a member of the board of
directors of the North Carolina National Bank
Corp. He said he would resign the position
immediately, along with his position as chairman
of the N.C. Board of Eduction.
Spangler was appointed chairman of the
Board of Education in 1982 by then-Gov. Jim
Hunt. He also was co-chairman of Hunt's Task
Force on Education and Economic Growth,
which pushed for higher salaries for teachers.
Previously, he was vice chairman of the
Charlotte-MecklenburgJBoard of Education and
helped lead a statewide effort to establish public
After his appointment Friday, Spangler said:
"It is an amazing thing, following Bill Friday.
He has solved so many problems so well . . .
(a new president) will not have to face those
In a written statement, Spangler said, "My
intention is to follow the same goals which
President Friday and the Board of Governors
of the University of North Carolina have pursued
to make our university system great."
Spangler defined those goals as the promotion
and protection of certain freedoms: freedom of
inquiry; freedom to speak the truth as one finds
it; freedom to publish scholarly and scientific
inquiries; and freedom to discuss and debate
He described his approach to the position of
president with a Latin phrase, "Gradu diverso,
una via," which means, "with a different pace,
but on the same road."
No date has been set for Spangler to take
office, but he said he hoped to establish an
interim office in the General Administration
Building in early March. He said he would
discuss the transition with Friday this week.
Friday said, "I will be helpful to him for as
long as he needs me, and then he will be in
Spangler said he would ask all UNC admi
nistrative staff members to remain, including
Raymond H. Dawson, senior vice president of
the UNC system, who was a leading candidate
for the presidency.
Others said to have been given serious
consideration for the position were Dr. Stuart
Bondurant, dean of the UNC Medical School;
Frederick C. Davison, president of the Univer
sity of Georgia at Athens; Thomas A. Bartlett,
chancellor of the University of Alabama system;
and Ronald W. Roskens, president of the
University of Nebraska system.

After several months of meetings, the Black
Cultural Center planning committee will present the
final draft of its proposal for a center this afternoon
to Donald Boulton, vice chancellor and dean of
student affairs. The committee will meet with
Boulton on Friday. s
An advance copy of the proposal contains a
duplicate of an April 25, 1984 memorandum from
Boulton to the committee members which states,
"The Center will represent a continued commitment
of the University to enhance the multi-cultural
dimension of the campus."
The newest addition to the proposal is a section
on proposed space needs. In a letter dated Dec.
10, 1985, from A. Robert Brooks, an architect from
the Facilities Planning Office, the area required by
the proposed center is 8,548 square feet. This space
includes a library, 144-person meeting room, lounge
and gallery, 175-person music rehearsal hall, dance
studio and offices.
The projected cost for such a center is $797,357,
excluding the cost of land, equipment and furniture
The proposal includes 1 0 objectives for the center:
to provide a focal point for Black cultural
to attract lecturers and performers who are
significant . . . in the black experience;
to serve ... as a major recruiting tool for black
students and faculty; v
to house an academic advisory program for
to cultivate a mutually supportive relationship
with the surrounding community, where the
community participates in the activities of the center;
to display contemporary and traditional African
and Afro-American visual arts and present
performing arts programs;
to promote an awareness of UNC-CH distin
guished black alumni;

Student body president candidates had a chance
to explain the major planks of their platforms during
the last forum Sunday in Connor Dormitory.
About 20 people attended the forum, which came
two days before Tuesday's elections.
Bryan Hassel said he would have more than an
open door policy in Suite C. One way to be more
responsive, he said, is to form a grievance committee
that would work directly with dorm governments
and students to find out their concerns and try to
"The people on the grievance committee must
be able to work well with people," he said. "And
they also must have the freedom to carry out the
solutions to the problems.
"Sometimes it's just a question of making a phone
call to the right person," he said.
Hassel said he would try to "empower" students
and would take the role of student advocate.
Textbook prices are too high, he said, so he would
encourage professors to order earlier, and he
advocated a waiting list for classes during drop
add, so classes would be given out more fairly.
Jack Zemp said he would work to have Student
Government represent students more than it does
Zemp said he would propose a bill in the Campus
Governing Council, requiring each representative
to meet with his constituents several times during
the semester. Representatives also should attend
area meetings in their districts.
"We would need to establish good rapport with
administrators," he said. Once administrators saw
that Student Government was a legitimate govern
ment, they would have more respect, and dealing
with them would be easier, he said.
Billy Warden said the most important thing for
students to realize is that John Wayne is not really
dead. He just went west for a while, and he needs
to be called back.
"IVe seen a lot of pizza boxes across campus,"
he said. ""We could use them for saddles and sit
on all of those little walls around (campus). We
could scream and hoot and holler about Indians
and stuff, and that would bring him back."
Warden advocated having the tooth fairy deliver
classes, rather than having students go through the
bother of drop-add, but some changes still would
need to be made, he said.
"The problem would be that if you took 15 credit
hours, five classes, you would lose five teeth," he
said. "We need to take two classes worth 7.5 hours.

UNO's Joe Wolf and Kevin Madden battling Clemson's Jerry Pryor for a loose ball in the Heels' 85-67 victory Saturday
By JAMES SUROWIECKI
Some might say that the outcome of
Saturday's Clemson-UNC basketball game
at the Dean Dome was determined Thursday
night, when Virginia handed UNC its first
loss of the year. Put simply, UNC was more
talented than Clemson, played better than
Clemson and beat Clemson 85-67. And the
repetitiveness of that sentence captures
perfectly the repetitiveness of the game.
The Tar Heels (22-1, 6-1) started out
slowly and appeared a bit disconcerted by
the unique spread offense Clemson began
in. Brad Daugherty, who finished the game
with 21 points, opened the scoring with a
turnaround jumper from the baseline, and
after Clemson's Larry Middleton hit a 20
foot jumper off the fast break, Steve Hale
countered with a jumper of his own.
Clemson rushed the ball back down the
floor and Middleton hit again, this time from
deep in the left corner. But Kenny Smith
nailed a 15-footer to regain the lead for
UNC, and a pattern had been established.
Clemson tried to keep the game at a fast
tempo even from a four corners offense
and drive into the paint whenever
possible. The Tigers penetrated even at the
risk of facing Warren Martin, who blocked
five shots. Unfortunately for Clemson, the
ball didn't seem to want to go in the hole.
"I thought. we executed our offense welh
until we got close to the basket," Clemson
coach Cliff Ellis said. "We just missed too
many close shots. If the opening was there,
then take it. We did and the shots just did
not go down for us."
It was the 10th time in the Tigers' past
11 games that they had shot less than 50
percent. As a result, Clemson lost in Chapel
Hill for the 3 1 st time in 3 1 tries.
UNC, meanwhile, played its usual strong
two-way game. Although the Tar Heels were
unable to dominate defensively because of
Clemson's spread offense, they contested
shots and made up for the points they lost
in the transition game by pushing the ball
1 inside and hitting the open jumpers. The
Tar Heels finished the game shooting 60
percent from the field.
"Defensively, we were very good. They
kept making shots with hands in their faces,"
UNC coach Dean Smith said. "We put a
little more gambling in there about midway
through the first half. I thought we executed
offensively very well in the second half."
The Tigers did have one shining moment
in the game. With 12 minutes to go in the
first half, Grayson Marshall pulled up on
the fast break and hit a jump shot to give
Clemson the lead for the last time. Six
minutes later, Marshall hit two free throws
to pull Clemson within two points. But the
Tar Heels ripped off a 14-2 run to go into
the locker room up 37-23. For all intents
and purposes, the game was over.
In the second half, the pace of the game
picked up a bit, as did Clemson's shooting.
Glen Corbit, who didn't play in the first half
for the Tigers, fired in eight points off the
bench, and freshman Jerry Pryor also played
well. But in the end the Tar Heels were just

The Black Student Movement has
endorsed candidates Bryan Hassel
for student body president; Jim
Zook for editor of the Daily Tar
Heel; and Ray Jones for president
of the Residence Hall Association.
BSM President Sibby Anderson
said the decision to endorse Hassel
was difficult to reach.
"After two and a half hours of
debate, we decided unanimously to
endorse Bryan Hassel," she said.
"This was decided due to the growing
apathy on campus. Student Govern
ment needs more than a good
administrator or organizer. What the
office has lacked is an aggressive
sense and dedication that Bryan
Hassel will bring."
Anderson said the BSM was
impressed with Hassel's dedication.
"Though Bryan Hassel hasnt had
an extensive background in Student
Government, we feel he has an ability
and drive to do well," she said. "He
impressed us as well-infornled and
has done research to know what
issues are most pertinent to the black
"Bryan has a good track record
as far as participation. He hasnt had
a lot of programs, but those he has
been involved in have been strong.
I see him as a very responsive
Anderson said the BSM endorsed
Zook because of his experience and
ideas, i " -
"We felt Jim Zook communicated
his plans well, and we were pleased
with his ideas of extra national
coverage and changing the paper
particularly the beat system," she
said. "We would be assured of
coverage. I feel that will bring better
communication between the paper
and other organizations."
Zook's platform seemed to be the
most thought out and practical,
Anderson said that although none
of the RHA candidates had specific
plans to actively involve the BSM,
the group was pleased with Jones'
"I didn't feel any of them had given
a lo of thought to incorporating
cultural awareness in the dorms," she
said. "Though he didn't have any
definite plans for pursuing cultural
awareness in the dorms, we did sense
an honesty about him hard

Action, responsiveness and accessibility are the key
words in this year's Residence Hall Association
A major, campaign issue is the rise in the drinking
age to 21 this September and its effects on the dorms'
social lives. Candidate John Fanney, Morrison dorm
governor, said that a dorm alcohol policy should not
reflect RHA's ideas alone but that RHA should give '
Since only 10 to 12 percent of dorm residents are
over 21, the dorms will face a big liability problem
with its younger residents, he said.
Alcohol should still be permitted at social events,
but it should not be the main pull, he said.
H.F. Watts, governor of Scott Residence College,
said each dorm or floor should decide for itself how
much money it wants to spend on alcohol.
The current policy allows up to 50 percent of dorm
social funds to be spent on alcohol, and it should stay
that way to allow "older" or "younger" dorms arid
floors flexibility, he "said.
Ray Jones, Avery's president, said 15 to 25 percent
of a dorm's social fees was a reasonable amount to
spend on alcoholic beverages.
But dorms should have the option to vote for a
percentage increase if a lot of its residents would benefit
from it, as in Craige, he said.
The candidates differed on the question of separating
RHA from the housing department.
Jones said RHA must be independent, because it
had no . power under Director of Housing Wayne
RHA needs to be there when the housing department
starts to do something that will affect dorm residents,
"RHA can be run by students," he said.
But Watts said RHA and the housing department
should definitely remain together.
This year, RHA's president has not coordinated or
communicated housing's decisions and ideas to the
lower levels of RHA government, such as area directors
and dorm presidents, he said.
"There's nothing wrong with housing as long as
there's a good president and a good director of
housing," he said.
Fanney said he believed RHA and housing must
remain together because they were integrated. One
could not work without the other.
At the Black Student Movement forum Wednesday,
the candidates proposed various ways to broaden
cultural awareness on campus.
Jones said lack of cultural awareness between groups
was mostly caused by lack of association.
"Increasing cultural awareness is a matter of getting
people to know one another," he said. Social events,
such as cookouts, mixers and games of assassin, would
bring minorities and non-minorities together, he said.
Watts said he would like to see the 1973 "Jiatina
Proposal" implemented. The proposal, written as a
graduate honors thesis, suggested that the main
problem in integrating North and South Campuses
was that students didn't want to move away from their
friends. Watts said that by moving whole South
Campus suites to North Campus dorms, minorities
would not be isolated but that the campus would be
Fanney said groups such as the BSM, the Carolina
Indian Circle and the Association of International
Students could work together to develop educational,
entertaining programs. .
"The best asset RHA has is to provide program
ming," he said.
Bringing the programs dorm to dorm would "remove
the hesitation barrier" of going alone, he said.
Increasing cultural awareness was one of four goals
stated in Fanney's campaign. He also emphasized three
other points: taking stands on major issues, such as
the dismissal of Campus Y Associate Director George
Gamble; developing informational programs on
personal and dorm security with the UNC police; and
more and better programming with other campus
"If you've got five or six campus organizations
working together, with all those resources, you're going
to come up with some very innovative and attractive
programs," he said.
"... (Security) is kind of like the common cold,"
he said. "There's no miracle cure. The best drug is
The RHA president also needs to be willing to follow
through on ideas, he said.
In his campaign, Jones stressed making more use
of the $20,000 RHA budget and improving RHA to
make it as effective as individual dorm governments
"Residents are not getting a return on their money,"
The meal plan and parking around campus would
be two main issues of his presidency, he said. RHA
can be doing a lot more than it is, he said.
Watts has criticized the housing department
throughout his campaign for mismanaging enhance
ment funds and keeping RHA "under its thumb."
The decisions to remove trash cans from hallways,
to increase dorm rent and to install security doors in
Avery and Teague were made without student
knowledge or input, he said.
Granville Towers also should receive money for its
area mixers, he said.
