Len Bias (34) and Brad Daugherty battle for a rebound in Maryland's win

LOS ANGELES (AP) The
slaying of an American-based Fil
ipino journalist after he received a
threatening note had the mark of a
professional killer, says his pub

Oscar Salvatierra, 41, was killed
by a gunman who entered his
suburban Glendale home and shot
him several times, just a day after
he received in the mail a note
threatening his life. The FBI is
investigating the slaying.
Salvatierra was the Los Angeles
bureau chief of the San Francisco
based Philippine News, a weekly that
had frequently editorialized againist
the government of President Ferdi
The note he received, with words
cut from publications and pasted
onto paper, said, ""Philippine News
is a disgrace to the Filipino commun
ity in the U.S. Through your paper,
your unwarranted accusations and
lies you have attacked your own
countrymen. You should be
ashamed to call yourselves Filipinos.
So for your crimes, you are sent-
enced to death by execution."
Stan Aragon, sales manager for
the newspaper, also received a
mailed threat on Tuesday. It read
only: "You're next."
Alex Esclamado, publisher of the
newspaper, which has a circulation
of 77,000 in the United States and
Canada, said, "The preliminary
report indicated that the man went
through the window, that he shot

Wednesday and Fred Reagan, an

In somewhat Biased terms. North
Carolina finally got beat at its own
comeback game Thursday night, losing
to Maryland in overtime 77-72 in a wild
and woolly battle at the Smith Center.
Here's one Biased report, from a
Dome that was famous long before the
first million had been donated for
Dean's: "If Lenny Bias ain't player of
the world, there ain't no other players
around." Lefty Driesell.
An unBiased statement: "He was
nothing I haven't seen before, I've
played with Michael Jordan." Brad
But Bias undoubtedly was incredible
against UNC, scoring 35 points against
a variety of coverages and keying the
biggest upset of this college basketball
season. "1 don't know how 1 do it," Bias
rather immodestly said from courtside
after the game where he stood sur
rounded by Maryland supporters. "lVe
been scoring 24 points a game all year
with three men on me."
UNC had numerous chances to salt
awav this one. The Tar Heels were up
by nine with 3:30 remaining and by two
with 10 seconds left, with Kenny Smith
on the line.
Remember Marquette? Money in the
bank, right? Not this time. Smith
bricked one off the back rim, Jeff Baxter
took an outlet pass and hit a clutch 20
footer with two seconds on the clock
to tie the game, 69-69. UNC couldn't
get off another shot, and the game went
into overtime, the first one the Dean
Dome had seen.
UNC, now 25-2 overall and 9-2 in
the ACC, again had its chances. Joe
Wolf scored on a free throw and a
jumper, sandwiching a Tom Jones
basket, to give the Tar Heels a 72-71
lead. That basket with 2:14 left in
overtime was the last time the Tar Heels
Bias gave Maryland only its second
lead of the game on an off-balance jump
hook from 12 feet to put Maryland up
73-72. Then came the game's question
able non-call, as Steve Hale put up a
rebound off a Smith miss. Hale's shot
was swatted away by Derrick Lewis,
who had six block; Maryland
vered the ball and called timeout with
58 seconds left, ahead by one.
Brad Daugherty, who led the Tar
Heels with 23 points, intercepted the
inbounds pass and after another
timeout, UNC had another chance. "We
were just trying to run our regular
offense at that point and get the open
shot," said Jeff Lebo, who was three-for-10.
It came down to Smith again,
and with eight seconds left he took the
ball high, dribbled between his legs and
Enter Lewis again. "I was really
looking for him to drive and for me
to block the shot," said the sophomore,
who had 10 points. His thoughts were
clairvoyant, as Smith laid up a layup
that was rudely smashed into the loss
column. "Kenny Smith is human,
finally," Dean Smith said. As was the
Tar Heel team, in as uncharacteristic
a loss as they have suffered in several
years. The Tar heels hit only 49.2
percent of their shots, well off their 57.2
average, and made only six of 12 free
throws. Maryland, on the other hand,
converted 25 of their 27 foul shots.
Keith Gatlin hit two free throws with
seven seconds left to cinch the victory,
and five seconds later threw the ball off
Smith's back and scored another layup
for the final five-point margin.
For Driesell, the game was a sweet
one compared to last year's at Carmi
chael, when Maryland lost a three-point
lead with 23 seconds to play. "This isn't
a fluke," he said, as his team moved
to 4-7 in the ACC and 15-11 overall.
"IVe always said this team is better than
North Carolina took the loss with
little emotion, as usual. "Maybe we can
learn something from this," said

Senior elms officers to he inaugurated
By ANJETTA MCQUEEN
Staff Writer -
For the first time, newly-elected senior class officers
will be included in the inauguration ceremony at 8
p.m., Feb. 24 in the Union Film Auditorium.
During the ceremony, the following officers-elect will
also be inaugurated: Bryan Hassel, student body
president; Mark Pavao, Carolina Athletic Association
president; Linda Wastila and Robert Smiley, Graduate
and Professional Student Federation co-presidents;
Ray Jones, Residence Hall Association president and
the newly-elected Student Congress representatives.
Current Senior Class President John Kennedy said
he felt the senior class officers should be inaugurated.
"The inauguration is a privilege that senior class
officers should enjoy," he said. "It is a symbolic
Student Body President Patricia Wallace said the
other officers were constitutionally required to be
inaugurated, while senior class officers were not.
"Perhaps the reasoning was that the other offices
are campus- or student-wide to an extent," she said.
Student Government Executive Secretary Heather
Powell, said she did not know why past senior class
officers-elect had not been inaugurated.
"I assume the main reason why . . . was that John
Kennedy asked that they be inaugurated," she said.
Kennedy said he did not know why past senior class
officers-elect were not inaugurated.
"We did not have any type of ceremony," he said.
"We just had our first meeting and began our term."
Kennedy said he hoped Monday's ceremony would
set a precedent, with the senior class officers being
inaugurated in the future. The senior class' growth in
the area of service qualified the officers for inaugu
ration, he said.
The following newly-elected senior class officers will
be inaugurated: David Venable, senior class president;
Michele Killough, vice president; Jackie Jarvis,
secretary; and Patrick Broadway, treasurer.
Senior Class President-elect David Venable and
Senior Class Vice President-elect Michele Killough said
that the senior class officers' increased role justified
"In past years, . . . (the senior class officers) got lost
in the shuffle," said Venable. "This year's class has
brought high recognition to themselves."
Killough said although the senior class officers were
elected the same as other officers, they served for a
year and a half, instead of one year.
"We do serve a special constituency," she said, "but
the RHA serves only those students who live in the
The incumbent officers will each give a short speech
before swearing the new officers in. All officers-elect,
except for the senior class officers, will give short
"There was a time concern," Kennedy said. "So we
made a compromise the senior class officers get
inaugurated, but they don't get to make speeches."
A reception will follow the inauguration. Students
are invited to attend both events.

Adult magazines and videotapes are
going on and off store shelves as
merchants try to decide what they may
sell under the state's current porno
Two weeks ago. District Attorney
Carl Fox prepared guidelines for local
merchants on what would be considered
illegal adult materials. Fox also met
with video dealers to discuss the
Many local video dealers pulled all
their adult videotapes off their shelves
when the law went into effect Oct. 1 ,
but they have since begun to sell some
of those items.
The ,emphasis on using local com
munity standards to define porno
graphy under the new law has caused
Gary Messenger, owner of North
American Video Ltd., to carry materials
in his Chapel Hill stores that he does
not carry in Durham or Wake County.
"Around Christmastime, we took a
chance, we looked at the law and
studied it and figured community
standards are different in Chapel Hill

than Durham," he said. 1 think the
thing in Orange County is it is a
University area which is progressive
enough that adult materials are not
considered a community crime."
Messenger said he commended Fox
for preparing the guidelines, because
. video dealers previously had little or no
idea what could be sold under the new
"There has been fear across the state
as far as retailers are concerned," he
said. "No one. has ever taken the time
to define what the role of the D.A.
would be in determining standards or
defined what a standard is.
"We welcome the fact that somebody
like Carl Fox is going to help us out,"
he said. "Carl Fox was prudent and wise
and progressive in preparing guidelines
on what we should watch out for, on
what we should and should not carry.
"Checked self-censorship is better
than a police date," he said.
Other video stores are reviewing their
videotapes to determine which are in
violation of Fox's guidelines. "In this
county, the D.A. isn't going to be as
lenient," said Stephanie Williams, a
clerk at The Video Bar.
A videotape will be in violation of
the law if there is even one scene that
violates the guidelines, Williams said.
The Video Bar's business tripled
when it returned the adult videotapes
to its shelves a few months ago,
Williams said, but she did not know
what the new guidelines would mean
The X-rated videotapes are kept in
a separate room from the regular tapes,
Williams said, and typically a customer
would rent a regular tape along with
the X-rated tape.
Another video dealer, Jim Petri, the
manager of One-Hour Photo With
Movies to Go, said he did not meet with
Fox and he would not discuss the
guidelines. "For the betterment of my
personal employment, I better make no
comment," Petri said.
Messenger said he did not believe
video stores would be able to carry
previous quantities of adult videos.
Before the law went into effect, adult
materials comprised about 18 percent
of his video merchandise, he said. In
his stores carrying adult materials, the
amount may eventually drop to 10
percent to 12 percent, he said.
Messenger said when the law first
went into effect and adult materials were
pulled from the shelves, North Amer
ican Video stores lost 25 percent to 40
percent of their business. The company
has since recovered most of its losses,
The obscenity law has also affected
other local stores. John Woodard, the
owner of Sutton's Drug Store, said his
store no longer sells adult magazines.
"They were too much trouble to deal
with," Woodard said, adding that
customer response to the removal had
In local Pantry stores, adult maga
zines have been taken from display
racks and put in concealed containers,
said Leon Underwood, district manager
for The Pantry, Inc.
The action was reflected in Pantry
stores across the country, he said,
because of public response nationally.

This year's Discovery program focuses on the University's
black alumni role models. It is sponsored by the Black
Student Movement and the Black Alumni Reunion

experience and wisdom that we as present students can benefit
from," BSM President Sibby Anderson said.
More than 200 black alumni are expected to participate
in Saturday's program, BSM Vice President Tonya Smith
said. She said Discovery is a means of creating a working
relationship between alumni and students.
The day's activities include a session of career seminars
focusing on the fields of law, medicine, business, journalism
and media, dentistry, and public health.
Hayden B. Renwick, associate dean of the College of Arts
and Sciences, will conduct the second session, "UNC and

A cultural program featuring the Opeyo Dancers,the
Ebony Readers, the Gospel Choir and an "all-Greek
stepshow" will end the program.
Smith said students would make contacts with people in
their fields of study and get information about internships.
