RHA, Senior results
By LINDA MONTANARI
Unofficial results in the race for
Residence Hall Association president
Tuesday had Ray Jones on top with
1,619 votes, H.F. Watts with 1,071 and .
John Fanney with 671, but Watts said
he would file a protest.
Because the ballot did not specify that
only on-campus residents were allowed
to vote, many off-campus students
apparently voted in the race, Watts said.
He said he would contest the results
because of the lack of clarity.

RHA president results, but added that
they would not be final until next week,

Zook coasts to win
in editorship race
By RANDY FARMER
Jim Zook was elected editor of The
Daily Tar Heel Tuesday night with an
unofficial 60 percent of the vote. r '
Zook said he was speechless at the
1,265-vote margin over co-candidates
Catherine Cowan and Jim Greenhill,
who received 1,128 votes. Guy Lucas
But Zook did give credit to his 200
or so campaign workers for his success.
"I'm 100 percent convinced that (organ
ization) is what made this a strong
campaign," Zook said.
Lucas said he was disappointed with
the results and expressed concern that
the paper would emphasize profession
alism over student issues.
"I just hope a year from now people
are not saying they want to take this
paper out of the Journalism School,"
Lucas said. "That's the biggest danger
Greenhill said he was not surprised
at the result. "Losing is an invigorating
experience. It's spiritually cleansing," he
said. "But in all sincerity, I'm relieved
that there isn't a runoff."

ATLANTA Two great college
basketball teams played one great
college basketball game Tuesday
night in The Omni, and when the
final buzzer sounded, the No. 1
ranked team in the land was still No.
1 and the No. 2-ranked team was
still No. 2 barely.
The 16,659 basketball nuts who
watched first-hand North Carolina's
thrilling 78-77 overtime victory at the
expense of Georgia Tech witnessed
a living example of why the Tar
Heels are rated so highly. North
Carolina battled back from a 13
point second-half deficit and dis
played poise under pressure, while
Tech and its All-American guard
Mark Price faltered just a bit at the
end. That little bit was enough to
keep UNC (23-1, 7-1 in the ACC)
on top and the Yellow Jackets (17
3, 6-2) a notch below.
"We were confident we'd come
back," UNC guard Steve Hale (who
had 18 points) said of the Tar Heels'
59-46 deficit with 1 1 :56 to go in
regulation. "The reason we thought
we'd come back was that weVe done
it before. There was so much time

of the evening, said he felt good about ;

Lucas attributed his loss to the
amount of campaign money spent,
campaign organization and media
coverage of the race.
"I think it's a good example of what
happens when you run a clean campaign
and don't make promises you can't
keep," Lucas said.
Lucas said Zook had spent twice the
amount of money that he had spent and
that Zook had more organization.
x Students weren't informed on the
issues, he said. "The DTH race was
severly undercovered. It was the student
body president every time."
Greenhill attributed Zook's success to
"a bit of negative campaigning" and the
Black Student Movement endorsement.

the DTH staff. Greenhill said his plans
were undecided. Cowan said she wanted
to return to the DTH staff.
