His speech was part of the annual University Day convoca tion to honor UNC's birthday. "Members of the University family know that this invisible beauty is our heritage of integrity and freedom," Aycock told about 300 people in "A Tribute to a Remarkable Founding Father and to a Remarkable Son." The ceremony celebrated the 193rd anniversary of the laying of the cornerstone of Old East. Also during the convocation.

Jim Broyhill in a debate Sunday, while Broyhill sought to identify himself with President Reagan's conservative political philosophy. The candidates met for the first and what Broyhill calls only debate, which was televised live from Charlotte and sponsored by the N.C. Broadcasters Association. In his opening statement, Broyhill, a Republican who was appointed to fill the late Sen. John East's seat, said he supported "the conservative majority" and labeled Sanford as a typical liberal. Sanford said in his opening state "Potent By MIKE BERARDINO Assistant Sports Editor WINSTON-SALEM Strange as it may seem, North Carolina's 40 .30 victory over Wake Forest Satur day afternoon was decided by defense. Sure, the two teams combined for over 900 yards of total offense and 70 points. And sure, Jonathan Hall tossed a career-best four touchdown passes, all in the first half. And sure, the Demon Deacons' Mike Elkins aired it out no less than 48 times in a never-ending bombardment of the North Carolina secondary. But granted all that, this game was a matter of defensive possession UNC had one when it counted and Wake didn't. The crowd of 31,350 that packed Groves Stadium in anticipation of an offensive bonanza pitting the explosive passing of Air Elkins against the relentless infantry attacks of UNC was not disappointed. But the fans were also treated to a deceivingly decent defensive perfor mance by the Tar Heels, an effort that may have been lost in the glitzy offensive numbers. Time and time again, UNC's , weeble-wobble defense (they weeble, they wobble, but they don't fall down) delivered in the clutch, ena bling the Tar Heels to improve their record to 4-0-1 overall and 2-0 in the ACC.

"Thousands have contributed, but some have specially enriched our heritage," Aycock said. Two of those special contributors are William Richardson Davie, who laid the cornerstone of Old East, and Frank Porter Graham, the first president of the UNC system, he said. Davie, a 1787 Philadelphia convention delegate, secured a charter for the University as a member of the House of Com mons. Davie helped select UNC's location, raise funds, choose professors and outline a course of study which was known at the time as the most liberal in America, Aycock said. "Davie was regarded by his contemporaries as the father of the University," he said.. Graham, whose 100th birthday is Tuesday, began his almost half century on UNC's campus as a freshman in 1905, Aycock said. "He was assigned, as now seems quite appropriate, a room in Old East." Graham was secretary of the YMCA on campus and Dean of Students before joining the See DAY page 5 BroyMll ment that his campaign is about the future. He brought up the issue of the food and medicine tax enacted during his term as governor. Broyhill has attacked the issue in his campaign. "My opponent has seen fit to pick out a part of my record and make it a large part of his campaign the tax for schools," he said. "The tax was the most ambitious school program in the history of North Carolina." Sanford said that the tax and subsequent increase in the quality of education brought more jobs and industry to North Carolina. Legis lators in 1961 showed courage in voting for the program, which only cost citizens an average of $ 1 8 a year at the time, he said. offffemise leads UNGlby Deacon also 2-0. Wake dropped to 3-3 and 0-34 The most shining example of defensive brilliance came late in the first half when Danny Burmeister and Derrick Donald snared back-to-back interceptions of Elkins' passes. The big plays set up two quick TD strikes by Hall and transformed a tenuous 14-10 Tar Heel advantage into a solid 27-10 halftime bulge. "We wanted to get them to throw the ball deep instead of all that underneath stuff," UNC defensive coordinator Denny Marcin said. "We felt we could hold up speedwise with them. We wanted to get up in their mustache and make Mike (Elkins) think a little. 'Are they coming with the blitz? Are they going to play bump-and-run? Are they going to sit back in a zone?' " The strategy seemed to work as Elkins, the sophomore sensation who ranked seventh in the nation in total offense going into Saturday's game, was forced into several bad decisions. Besides the two intercep tions, the younger brother of former UNC signal-caller Rod Elkins often tried to force the ball into double coverage or throw deep to a well covered receiver. Elkins finished 21-of-48 for 297 yards and two touch downs, a subpar outing for someone who had completed 58 percent of his passes prior to the UNC game. "From a fan's standpoint, it was a really great ballgame," a relieved president, which Monday, October 13, 1986 1 'SKW'MWiUB'BBIIV.BIMlWIIUtl J'.l IUUM.WMI I II II UU HUUJj Vt Jfy ' JpT ; in f I i i&i - w UNC officials preparing to march meet no vertD&l scrimmage A moderator asked the candidates questions submitted earlier by the press. Broyhill received the first ques tion, which focused on his support of Reagan, despite the president's opposition to textile bills. "Yes, the president and I did disagree . . . but the administration is working towards a better trading agreement," he said, citing Taiwan, Hong Kong and Japan as examples. "My opponent struck out. There's not any question that we missed by only two or three votes to override the veto, and we should've overrid den it." Sanford was then asked what he would do to help farmers in the event of another drought in North UNC quarterback Jon Hall, who UNC coach Dick Crum said. "We were playing a team that had ever ything to gain and nothing to lose. To come in here and survive, because of course I don't, Chapel Hill, North Carolina .

"1 would help push aside the red tape ... the administration didn't use the tools it had, and the relief went elsewhere," Sanford said, referring to the drought this summer. When asked about his vote oppos ing sanctions against South Africa, Broyhill said he felt they hurt the blacks instead of helping them, Sanford responded that it is fortunate that Reagan's veto of the sanctions bill was overridden. He said it is up to the United States to take a stand as a moral leader of the world and speak out against apartheid.

The hangup involved the Soviets' insistence that research on the anti missile system be confined to labor atory work. The restrictions, Reagan said, "would deny to me and future presidents for 10 years the right to develop, test and deploy a defense against nuclear missiles for the people of the free world." "This we could not and will not do." he declared. Gorbachev said that he made "very serious, unprecedented conces sions and accepted compromises that are unprecedented," but that there had been a "rupture" over U.S. insistence on testing space weapons outside the laboratory. "Who was going to accept that?" he said. "It would have taken a madman to accept that." The Iceland impasse was so com plete that the leaders did not set a date for a third superpower meeting, and the future of arms control talks was left in doubt. Donald T. Regan, White House criticizing the food tax, saying Broyhill voted for a $92 billion national tax increase. Broyhill responded that the state tax enacted by Sanford was not directed at schools but to food and medicine. All the revenue raised goes into the general fund, so it is not used solely for education, he said. Broyhill asked Sanford how he would vote on the issue of the death penalty for some drug-related cases. The Democrat said: "I wouldVe gone along with the crowd to vote on the drug bill. There's no other way to explain that vote . . . you voted against funds for educating about drugs, and now all of a sudden it's necessary to make drugs important." tempered, however, by the possibil ity of losing his entire starting See WAKE page 6 NewsSportsArts 962-0245 Business Advertising 962-1163 oviets chief of staff, said he thought further meetings were out of the question for a while. ". . . There will not be another summit in the near future that I can see at this time. The Soviet$ are the ones that refused to make the deal." Gorbachev told reporters "the Americans came to the meeting empty-handed," and top Soviet official Georgi Arbatov described the summit here as "the dead end to which they (the Americans) have driven the whole issue of arms control." Secretary of State George Shultz said the two sides had verbally agreed to slash long-range missile and bomber arsenals in half in five years and completely by 1996. In addition, they were prepared to eliminate all but 100 medium-range missiles on each side including all those deployed in Europe during the first five-year phase and the balance of those in 1996, Shultz said. "A tremendous amount of head way was made," he told a news conference here, "but in the end we couldn't make it." The problem: U.S. insistence on testing Strategic Defense Initiative ("Star Wars") technology, to be used a decade from now as an "insurance policy" to prevent any enemy from launching a successful nuclear strike, Shultz said. ..... . . Plimpton to recount adventures By JO FLEISCHER Assistant University Editor George Plimpton is probably envied by armchair quarterbacks all over America, but he says his experience shagging pucks for the Boston Bruins, quarterbacking for the Detroit Lions and pitching in an All-Star game is not the stuff of dreams it's "obvious humiliation." Plimpton, who will be giving a free lecture tonight at 8 Memorial Hall, is the founder and editor of the Paris Review, a literary publication. He has written and edited 16 books on sports and biographies of Robert Kennedy and Edie Sedgewick. His sixth book, "Open Net," is a behind-the-scenes, and a behind-the-goalie-mask, view of the Boston Bruins. Plimpton became a "participa tory journalist" in 1954 as a matador in a bullfight staged by Ernest Hemingway. He learned then that there was a lot more at stake than the glamour of big time sports. . It was, as Hemingway told him, "the dark side of the moon of Walter Mitty," a fictional, hen pecked James Thurber character who daydreamed to escape reality. Plimpton said he had fantas ized with some confidence in his abilities, about the chance to play in the big leagues before finding out the harsh realities involved. "The result is you go through sort of an obvious humiliation at the hands of people who are so obviously skillful at what they do," he said. "I can imagine going up to bat against someone like (Mike) Scott (of the Houston Astros), but if Keith Hernandez can't do it, I certainly can't." The inevitable failure is well worth the humiliation to get a story other reporters can't, Plimp ton said. "The best part is getting into their sort of secret societies. That is the most exhilarating aspect of it," he said. Plimpton's fascination is get See PLIMPTON page 4 Robert Kennedy
