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 new president. 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 school kindergartens. 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 problems." 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 .ideas.' ' 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 charge." 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. Spangler is a 1954 graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill. He went on toreceive an MBA from Harvard Business School in 1956 and was in the U.S. Army from 1956 to 1958. He has served on the boards of the Charlotte Nature Museum, the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, the Salva tion Army, the YMCA and the Mint Museum of Art in Charlotte. Currently, Spangler is a member of the UNC Board of Visitors and the board of directors of Union Theological Seminary inNew York. Spangler is a deacon at Myer's Park Baptist Church in Charlotte and is married to Meredith Riggs Spangler, a native of Bronxville, N.Y. They have two children, Anna, 23, and Abigail, 20. pmpmM Urn- Cy DENISE MOULTRIE Staff Writer 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 purchases. The proposal includes 1 0 objectives for the center: to provide a focal point for Black cultural expression; , 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 black students; 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; See BCC page 3 By GRANT PARSONS Staff Writer 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 correct them. "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 now. 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.

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 See CLEMSON page 3 oimdomed by BSM By KAREN YOUNGBLOOD Staff Writer 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 community. "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 person." 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. Anderson said that although none of the RHA candidates had specific plans to actively involve the BSM, the group was pleased with Jones' honesty. "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 working and responsive to "the BSM." By UNDA MONTANARI Staff Writer Action, responsiveness and accessibility are the key words in this year's Residence Hall Association president race. 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 ' its input. 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 Kuncl. RHA needs to be there when the housing department starts to do something that will affect dorm residents, he said. "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 integrated. 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 groups. . "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 prevention." 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 had been. "Residents are not getting a return on their money," he said. 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. I keep reading between the lies Goodman Ace
