A large modern sculpture was
mangled by vandals Wednesday
night on the first day of its
outdoor exhibition on the lawn
between Howell and Alumni Halls.
The three pieces, made of square
piping welded in circular patterns,
were put on display to represent
UNC for President CD. Spangler's
inauguration Friday, Oct 17, said
Marvin Saltzman, a professor in the
art department who serves on the
inauguration committee. "I'm disap
pointed," he said. "It could have
represented us well."
The largest piece was left undis
turbed, but another was turned over
breaking the welds holding it
together. A third piece was also
damaged. All three were insured by
the University for $5,000 each, said
sculptor James Miller.
Miller, a UNC alumnus, said he
had expressed reservations when
first asked to show the sculpture
outside for the inauguration, but he
put them aside because he wanted
sculpture on-campus. "I was afraid
something would happen to it," he
said. "I have a gallery show at the
end of the month, and now I have
a lack of sculpture."
The sculpture was to be shown at
the Southeastern Center for Con
temporary Art after the
Miller said he was unsure whether
the pieces would be reparable in time
for his exhibition at the end of the
The three sculptures are an inte
grated conceptual piece, titled
"Aspects of Time," which Miller
considers as one unit.
The vandal's mentality, Miller
said, "is like a bunch of monkeys
in the same room. If you put
something in that they don't under-
- stand, they just destroy it."
Saltzman said the sculpture would
have been a good representative of
UNC during the inauguration. "The
grounds people set aside time, trucks
and their people to bring it here,"
he said. "UNC is not conducive to
visual improvement. I will know
better in the future.
"Other campuses and public pla
ces can display art outdoors without
having it destroyed," he said.
As an undergraduate, Miller
created the sculpture displayed in
front of Davis Library. He said he
has lobbied for sculpture at UNC in
the past, but that his latest experience
has changed his mind.
"I have always been pushing
sculpture on this campus," he said.
"I thought it would be good for the
University and for the students to
show it here, but I guess I shouldn't
But Miller said the vandalism was
not only directed at his art. "It's
almost become a tradition to deface
Silent Sam," he said. "It's just pell
Saltzam agreed, calling it "a tragic
situation." He said students appar
ently feel free to destroy other
people's property. "Its a lark," he
said. "They say, we can do it, and
then we can have another beer."

As-the first permanent director of
the Frank Porter Graham Student
Union, Howard Henry has been the
silent backbone of the organization
for almost 30 years.
Henry will retire next semester,
but his contributions to the campus
will remain. "Howard has done more
for student life and sanity than any
other administrator of the Univer
sity," according to 1985-86 Union
president Walt Boyle.
Henry came to UNC in 1958 from
the University of Wisconsin, where
he was assistant to the director of
the student union. Wisconsin's union
differed from UNC's, because it was
primarily a food organization and
not a headquarters for student
organizations, he said.
Born in Viroqua, Wis., Henry
graduated from high school in 1935,
and at age 16, he enrolled at the
University of Wisconsin. His father
owned a grocery store, but with the
Depression still rampant, money was
"My primary goal was survival,
not school, to be honest," Henry
said. He worked in the student union
as a dishwasher and then as a waiter.
Henry said he learned about the
guts of a student union's operations
when he worked at Wisconsin for
the summer. "I began seeing things
UNC defense is awesome in terms
of size," said Wake Forest coach Al
Groh. "They've solved the riddle of
'Where's the beef.' We're working on
crawling underneath their legs."
UNC coach Dick Crum, whose
team is 3-0-1 and 20th-ranked by
UP1, was quick to counter. "Wake
can really score, they can really move
the ball. Their attack is balanced,
and if they've been playing hard, they
will double their efforts against us."
The Demon Deacons are 3-2 this
season, having lost two conference
heartbreakers this season. A pass
intercepted in the end zone with no
time remaining put the lid on a 42
38 loss at N.C. State, and a missed
29- yard field goal last week by kicker
Wilson Hoyle snatched a defeat from
the jaws of victory against Virginia,
30- 28. "Wake could very well be

that needed doing and carved out

There were 21 directors of UNC's
union before Henry, but they were
college seniors or graduate students,
who served as part-time directors for
one or two years.
"At first, there was no spot for
me at (UNC)," Henry said. Later,
the dean of Student Affairs placed
the postion of union director under
Student Affairs, giving Henry a

position of director at first, because
he had another offer working with
Student Government. But he said the
stability of the director's position

behind the Student Union, said
Archie Copeland, associate director,
who has worked with Henry since
196 1 . Henry's plan resulted in a small
professional staff that allowed
greater student involvement.
Copeland said there were three
faculty members working at the
original Graham Memorial Student
Union in the early 1960s.
"It's hard to imagine it back in
those days," Henry said. The ticket
office served as the main campus
information desk from Monday to
Saturday, and a student lived
The Deacons are led by quarter
back Mike Elkins, younger brother
of former UNC quarterback Rod
Elkins. The younger Elkins paces the
conference in almost every offensive
category, and is ranked seventh in
the nation in total offense with a
266.4 yard average.
"I don't think IVe really done
anything special except for the State
game, though," the redshirt sopho

completed 35 of 58 passes for 429
yards and three touchdowns to
firmly establish himself as a new star
on the ACC horizon. Elkins' cheer

The original student union was
not highly accessible to students
because it was located near Franklin
Street not in the heart of the
campus. Also, because of a growing
student population, the present
union opened January 6, 1969.
Named in honor of Frank Porter
Graham, the University's president
from 1930 to 1949, the new building
was five times the size of Graham
Memorial, but Henry said the
building was still "underbuilt."
More office space was added to
the Union in 1980, adding 20,000
square feet to the existing 100,000
square feet, including a 400-seat

"I think we could build another
20 (buildings for) student organiza
tions, and we could fill them," Henry
said. However, no student organi
zation makes better use of space than
the Student Union, he said.
Besides his contributions close to
home, Henry is a founder of the
National Association of Campus
Activities. About 800 universities are
members of this organization,
formed to aid students and faculty
in running a student union.

points, but the Deacon defense is
incapable of shutting out many
teams. The defense is allowing more
than 364 yards per game, and should
be vulnerable to the run-Fenner-up-the-middle
attack that the Tar Heels
have concentrated on lately. Give it
credit, it's worked. Derrick Fenner
is tied for third in the country in
rushing with a 140-yard average.

at quarterback after his late-game

UNC will celebrate its 193rd
birthday on Sunday with a public
ceremony and birthday party with
all the trimmings, according to John

"Everyone is invited," Harrison said.

and the country's oldest state uni
versity building. "
