Amid shouts of "Welcome home,
neighbor," and "Free South Africa," a
wall about 50 feet long, made of lumber,
chicken wire and white sheets, was
constructed in the quad Monday near
the shanties by the members of the UNC
College Republicans and Students for
The "Berlin-type" wall was erected by
the groups to force Chancellor Chris
topher C. Fordham III to call for the
removal of the groups' wall as well as
the shanties, built by the UNC Anti
Apartheid Support Group to protest the
University's holdings in companies that
deal with South Africa.
"(The wall) is also to show that there
are other atrocities around the world
that are even far greater than those in
South Africa," College Republican
Chairman Bill Peaslee said Monday.
"It's hypocritical to just call for
divestment (in South Africa)," he said.
"If you say you're against 'immoral
governments,' then you should do it
across the board."
Peaslee said he was against apartheid
just as the support group members, but
he said his main concern was that the
quad not be turned into a "political
circus." The shanties have been up long
enough for the support group members
to make their point, he said, and now
they are just an eyesore.
Keith Poston, SFA chairman, said
Sunday that he had met with Fordham
and received permission to build the
wall. During the meeting, Poston said,
Fordham had told him that he would
talk to the support group, SFA and the
College Republicans "two to seven
days" after the construction of the wall
to ask that both the shanties and the
wall be removed.
Peaslee said some sort of policy
needed to be established governing use
of the quad for political demonstra
tions. ,"Only in the most extreme
circumstances should people be allowed
to use the quad for something like this,"
he said, pointing to the shanties.
Support group members in the
shanties came out to watch the building
of the wall, and some heated debates
erupted between support group
members and members of both Stu
dents For America and the College
At one point, the support group
members formed a line near the shanties
while SFA and College Republican
members grouped near the wall to chant
slogans at each other.

the last 41 seconds Monday night, as
No. 7 Louisville beat top-ranked Duke
72-69 to wiL. its second NCAA basket
ball championship in seven years.
Louisville, although hounded by
Duke's pesky guards Johnny Dawkins
and Tommy Amaker, grabbed the lead
for good at 66-65 on Billy Thompson's
jump shot with 2:47 remaining.
Ellison, who had 11 rebounds,
grabbed Jeff Hall's missed shot and put
it in with 41 seconds left for a 68-65
advantage. Then he snared a rebound
after a missed shot by Duke's David
Henderson and was fouled. He made
two free throws with 27 seconds
Duke's Jay Bilas cut it to 70-67 with
18 seconds left, breaking a seven-minute
drought without a basket. After Billy
Thompson missed a one-and-one free
throw opportunity, freshman Danny
Ferry's basket made it 70-69.
But Milt Wagner canned two free
throws with two seconds left to clinch
the Cardinals' 17th straight victory of
the season and end the Blue Devils' 21
game win streak. The Cardinals finished
32-7 and dropped Duke to 37-3.
Ellison was named tournament Most
Valuable Player, the first freshman to
earn the prize since Arnie Ferrin won
it for Utah's 1944 champions.
The loss spoiled the winningest
season in NCAA history. Duke's 37
wins surpassed by one the previous
record of the 1948 NCAA champion
Led by All-America guard Dawkins'
15 points and the ballhawking of both
Dawkins and Amaker, the Atlantic
Coast Conference champions built a 37
34 halftime lead.
Louisville went ahead 42-41 on
Herbert Crook's tap-in, which gave the
Cardinals the lead for the first time since
they were up 4-0. Dawkins then hit three
straight jump shots, including a three
pointer, for a 48-42 lead. Mark Alarie
made two free throws to match Duke's
biggest lead of the second half, 54-48.
But the 6-foot-9 Ellison paced the
Louisville comeback with the help of
Wagner, a 6-5 senior who had only two
points in the first half. Wagner's three
point play cut Louisville's deficit to 61
60 with 5:33 remaining. Henderson then
hit two FTs as Ellison picked up his
fourth personal, but Ellison came back
and hit from inside to cut the lead to
Wagner put Louisville ahead when
he shook loose for a layup with 3:22
left. Duke regained the lead when
Dawkins made a pair of foul shots, but
Thompson then pulled the Cardinals
away for good.
Thompson, a 6-7 senior, added 13
points for Louisville, while Crook had
10. Wagner, who entered the game with
a career total of 1,825 points, scored
only nine, almost six points under his
Dawkins, the leading scorer in Duke's
history, finished with 24 points. Hender
son added 14, Alarie 12 and Amaker
Louisville, which has been in four of
the last seven Final Fours, previously
won the crown in 1980. The Metro
Conference champion finished strongly
after playing the toughest non
conference schedule in the country,
winning 21 of its last 22 games.
" Duke has never won an NCAA title.
This was the Blue Devils' fifth trip to
the Final Four and third loss in the
championship game. They fell to UCLA
in 1964 and Kentucky in 1978.
Duke jumped to an early 15-8 lead
with Dawkins hitting 1 1 points on long
and short jumpers. The quickness of
Dawkins and Amaker forced 14 Louis
ville turnovers in the first half.
Walker wins BSM
By JACKIE LEACH
Eric V. "Wacko" Walker, a junior
philosophy and speech communications
major from New Bern, is the new BSM
vice president, defeating opponent
Janet Roach 77-70.
Walker's win came after he contested
a March 20 election, where Walker was
defeated 60-50. Walker contested the
tally after a discrepancy was found in
According to BSM president Sibby
Anderson, the discrepancy occurred
when BSM officers discovered that two
of the ballots did not have Walker's
name printed on them. According to
the results of that election, Roach had
defeated Walker by an eight-vote
margin. "I asked Walker if he wanted
to contest the race and he replied that
he did," Anderson said.
Walker said he was pleased with the

When the chanting died, support
group member Kelvin Nivens shouted,
"Welcome home, neighbor."
Fordham said Monday he felt very
positive about the wall. i

students are demonstrating against
South African oppression and oppres
sion by Eastern-bloc countries," Ford

a few days with the leaders of the groups
and set a deadline for the wall's and
the shanties' removal.

that weVe just about run the string out
as far as temporary structures in the
Thursday election's outcome, but he
said he was little upset about the
situation surrounding it. "Janet is my
friend," he said, "It's a shame that one
of us had to lose the election."
"I am very excited about being in a
position to put some projects into
action," he said, "1 want to make people
more aware of the BSM's power and

Roach said she felt concerned about

"There is no ruie written in the BSM

Roach said two votes would not have

Alterations and maintenance of an
estimated 50 miles of brick pathways
on campus are costing the University
about $100,000 per year, according to
Physical Plant Maintenance Superin
tendant Ed Sanders.
When students cut dirt pathways
through the grass, they are often
bricked up, he said. About six physical
plant employees work each workday
of the year to repair paths and brick
up new ones, Sanders said.
"When we find a convenient path
way that has been trod, we will brick
it," he said. Sanders cited the dirt
pathway leading to Franklin Street
across from Hector's, which is cur
rently being bricked, as a prime
Nick Bennett, a member of the
physical plant maintenance crew, said
students determine where bricks are
to be laid. "Wherever there is a dirt
path, a brick one goes," said Jack
Watkins, another maintenance crew
The University attempts to create
a proper mix of the natural beauty
of grass with the brick walks, said
Dean of Students Frederic W.
Schroeder Jr. "The difficulty is that
a lot of times people think the best
way to get from point A to point B
is a straight line, and they don't step
over the extra two feet to use a brick
walk," he said.
Schroeder said that although signs
had been put up in the past to
discourage people from using
unbricked paths, "once you start a
path it's almost impossible to stop it."
Sanders said they had had little luck
with the signs. Landscaping is a better
way to control pedestrian traffic, he
said. "We try to landscape so that
traffic flows to the walks," he said.
Schroeder said University policy
concerning pathways should be some
where between two extremes. "One
extreme is to put a path wherever one
is trod and the other is to say 'heck
no' to new paths. We have to find a
medium between those two ridiculous
points," he said.
"I don't think well ever get to the
point where we have to put up a sign
saying 'Keep Off The Grass,' "he said.
Vice Chancellor and Dean of
Student Affairs Donald A. Boulton
said he wanted to make sure the
University kept as much green as
possible, but that no ond should be
prohibited from walking on the grass.
"That openness to have people on the
grass is great," he said. "I wish I were
out there right now."
The physical plant also is respon
sible for erasing graffiti which often
appears on campus. Lately, painted
messages on the steps of Lenoir and
Hamilton Halls saying "Not A Dime
To The Contras" have been erased.
"Free South Africa" also has been
written on the statue of Silent Sam,
a Civil War monument.
Sanders said the paint shop at the

How ugly can one individual be? Alpha Phi Omega wants
to show you.
Students have the opportunity to cast their vote for APO's
Ugliest Man on Campus from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. outside
of the Student Union on Tuesday, April 1 thru Thursday,
April 4, said the APO chairwoman for the event.
Kathy Krizek, chairwoman, said any denomination of
money will be accepted for votes. Votes will not be subtracted
when silver coins are used to cast votes, as has been the
case in the past, she said.
The 1986 candidates and their sponsors are as follows:
Tom Carpenter and Paul Davenport (alias the "Siamese
twins"), APO; Don Courtney, the band; Scott Cowen (alias
Pop Myzit), Morrison Zoo; John Schmitz, Kappa Sigma
fraternity; James Surowiecki, The Daily Tar Heel sports staff;
and Billy Warden, Mangum dormitory.
Bruce Cox, APO president, said the Ugly Man on Campus
Contest was revived last year after a 15-year lapse. During
the I960's, he said, all the fraternities on campus entered
a candidate, about 40 total, and the winner won a date with
the Homecoming Queen. It was one of the biggest events
on campus, Cox said, but "it has just faded away."
Krizek said, "Fraternities aren't as motivated as they used
to be." APO was the only fraternity represented in last year's
contest, she said.
Cox said he had hoped every fraternity on campus would
become involved. "I guess that was wishful thinking," he
Both Cox and Krizek said they would like the contest
to become a big event again. "I'd like to see it come back
into style with more and more people getting involved,"
Last year's winner, Don Courtney, raised $135.13 of the
estimated $300 total, she said. She said she was hoping about
$ 1 ,000 would be raised this year.
"If we have active contestants, we should do better this
year," she said. "Billy Warden should attract more people."
Warden is the reigning Mr. UNC.
Warden, a junior from Raleigh, said he would win because
he could satisfy the passions of Viking women, who loved
ugly men. He said he planned to row an M&M boat out
to the deserted island where they had crashed into some
coconut trees. "Viking sex is great," he said
A sophomore from Columbia, S.C., Cowen said clothing
was the key to ugliness, and he was following in the footsteps
of Warden. A big nose and an underbite will help his chances
too, he said. "I'm worthy of this position."
Carpenter said it would be difficult to convert all his charm
to ugliness, but he was working on it by eating right, taking
Geritol "I feel older already" and running after girls.
"To really be on top of something," he said, "you have to
