After all, the two previous games at Kenan Stadium were one-point, emotion-packed contests. But the 32-30 Tar Heel victory on a 28-yard, four-seconds-left field goal by Lee Gliarmis meant something more. Something more than the fact that UNC is still in contention for the ACC crown. Something more than the fact that the Tar Heels beat the Terrapins for the first time since 1981. Something more than UNC snapping a two-game losing streak. But don't put such metaphysics before UNC coach Dick Crum. "I feel the same now as I did after the State game," he said. Crum's counterpart, Maryland coach Bobby Ross, on the other hand, probably never felt the way he did after any previous loss. He felt his club was cheated out of a win by an officiating blunder that gave UNC an extra timeout. "I'm sorry, 111 tell you," Ross said. "I'm getting tired, damn tired of it. Our guys fought their hearts out in the second half. They deserved a better fate." As fate would have it, the score board operator and Ross were both under the impression that UNC had used its final timeout with 28 seconds to go after Derrick Fenner had run a draw up the middle to the Mary- Halloween raises spirit in the street By SUSAN JENSEN Staff Writer "It's a party!" sophomore Chris Poulos said of the Halloween bash on Franklin Street Friday night. People in an endless variety of costumes and caricatures came out in droves to be a part of the informal celebration that has become an Oct. 31 tradition on Chapel Hill's main strip. Hundreds of ghosts and ghouls paraded up and down the street, meeting with friends or simply watching the menagerie. This year, the costumes included a four-pack of Busch beer and Santa Claus. One inventive young man posed as Silent Sam, holding a vigil throughout the night. A particular favorite this year was guerrilla soldiers, several of whom stood menacingly in front of the NCNB teller machine warding off any stragglers who happened to stumble too close. In the Freudian category, two women cleverly disguised themselves as a woman's exposed chest. Some favorites for this year were walking dead people, M&M's, fruits and vegetables, Darth Vader, an up side down student and flashers. Many males chose to come as their sexual counterparts. The scene was calm earlier in the evening. A few parents with young children dressed as scarecrows and doctors walked the streets. A monk and nun were seen toting a kid on their shoulders, and even a few moonies graced the street. But by 10 p.m., moans and screams could be heard on Franklin. By 1 1 p.m., traffic was streaming in from all directions and the police could be seen forcing over-eager pedestrians back to the sidewalks to wait for the light. At some point during the night, most masqueraders could be found in the various bars and eating establishments which sponsored contests and activities, most notably He's Not Here. Throughout the campus, pranks ters carried out illicit activities as their victims yelled after them,"We know who you are, man." "Uh oh!

When play resumed, quarterback Mark Maye carried the ball to his right, toward the center of the field, to give Gliarmis a better position for the field goal attempt. The clock ran down to four seconds before Maye signalled for a timeout. , What happened then is history.

Chapel Hillians were not the only ones to participate in the festivities. Many students from North Carolina State University could be found in the thick of things. "I think it's pretty wild.

The drive, which began at UNCs 32 with 13: 16 remaining, reached the Maryland four. On first-and-goal, the Terps were penalized for offsides first-and-goal from the two. On the next play, James Thomp son picked up a yard over the middle second-and-goal from the one. Then it was Derrick Fenner's turn. No gain. Third-and-goal. Then, Maye dropped back and spotted tight end John Keller in the last year also. A few sidewalk musicians started a sing-a-long in the center of the crowd and several people stopped to join in on the Beatles' "I wanna hold your hand."

But more controversy, like the Sea See FOOTBALL page 5 Aitlnlete From staff and wire reports UNC football player Randolph Marriott received an indefinite delay of sentence in his trial last week on a charge of assault on a female. He pleaded not guilty, saying his actions were in self defense. But Marriott, 21, of Wendell, must pay any uninsured medical bills stemming from an assault that 19-year-old Tonja Gaskins, of Merry Hill, said he committed in Sep tember. He must also attend a group counseling seminar on domestic violence. District Court Judge Patricia Hunt gave Marriott a prayer for judgment, which essentially delays or negates any future sentence. Marri In the window, under the gun By KIMBERLY EDENS Staff Writer " The first one Pen Robinson killed came to his attention partially through the good offices of the Manhattan branch of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. " World-famous author Harlan Ellison smoked, signed autographs, discussed politics, made wisecracks and eventually wrote a short story beginning with that sentence, while sitting in the window of the Hard back Cafe and Bookstore Saturday. His 20-page story, "The Avenger of Death," was finished in 10V4 hours. When he entered the bookstore at 10 a.m., he noticed that the people watching him looked expectant. "I haven't had my coffee yet," he said. "Don't expect anything but snarling." Dressed in a Los Angeles Colts sweatshirt with the sleeves cut off, sweat pants and ragpd Sneakers, Ellison began setting up in the store's front window. He placed his Olym pia typewriter on a small table in front of his chair, and put his pipe, white-out and glasses on a bookshelf beside him. Turning to the photographers in the audience, he said, "If you take a picture at just the right moment, you can catch the actual spark of intelligence." UNC-system President CD. Spangler entered about five minutes later. He had been assigned a month before to write a single sentence to be used as the beginning of Ellison's jiIT if Moslem pf Ms hostage in west From Associated Press reports BEIRUT, Lebanon Shiite Moslem kidnappers freed American hospital administrator David Jacobsen on Sunday after holding him for 17 months and said recent U.S. moves might lead to release of other Americans captive in Lebanon. Jacobsen, 55, of Huntington Beach, Calif., was turned over to U.S. officials on a street in Moslem west Beirut. A U.S. Embassy official, who insisted on anonymity, said Jacobsen was in good health and was at the embassy compound in Chris tian east Beirut. Anglican Church envoy Terry Waite flew in from Cyprus, met with Jacobsen and then told The Asso ciated Press in an interview, "David is well. He and I had a telephone conversation together for some hours. He is looking forward to seeing his family and friends." Waite, an emissary of Archbishop of Canterbury Robert Runcie, reportedly has been shuttling among Lebanon, Syria and Cyprus since Thursday in an effort to free foreign hostages in Lebanon. His role in Jacobsen's release is unclear. Waite was seen Sunday boarding a U.S. military helicopter in Lar narca, Cyprus, in his first public appearance since Friday. Islamic Jihad, the underground extremist group that held Jacobsen, still holds two other Americans, gets light ott must appear in court again in May to prove he has satisfied the order. If he fails to do so, he could receive a maximum sentence of two years imprisonment. In the trial Thursday, Gaskins testified that she went to a Carrboro drug store Sept. 8 to talk to a woman Marriott was going out with. She testified that she left after speaking with the woman. When she came back a second time, she saw Marriott talking with the woman, Gaskins testified. When she left, she said, she was called to a car that Marriott was sitting in. She said Marriott asked her why she was interfering, and opened the car door against her. She pushed Harlan Ellison story. "First, I would like to thank all those people who helped me write this story," Spangler said jokingly. He then opened a sealed envelope and read his sentence aloud. It' covered both sides of a notecard. "Never, ever, ask an academic to give me an idea again," Ellison said . when Spangler finished. Spangler agreed to let Ellison rearrange the sentence and use different parts of it throughout the story. Ellison went outside for a few minutes, came back, and he started typing, his feet resting on the lower railing of the table.

The group said last year that it killed U.S. diplomat William Buckley, but no body was found. Other groups claimed to be hold ing three other kidnapped Ameri cans: Frank Herbert Reed, Joseph James Cicippio and Edward Austin Tracy. Christian radio and television stations reported over the previous two days that six kidnapped Amer icans and two of eight French hostages would be let go. But in Washington, a State Department source said U.S. offi cials expected only one hostage to be released. The source spoke on condition of anonymity. Islamic Jihad said in a statement issued after Jacobsen's release, "We hold the American government fully responsible for the consequences of any failure to take advantage of this opportunity and proceed with cur rent approaches that could lead, if continued, to a solution of the hostages." In Santa Barbara, Calif., Presi dent Reagan said he could not divulge details of what led to the release, but that "we have been working through a number of sen sitive channels for a long time." White House spokesman Larry Speakes said in Santa Barbara that there was no change in the -U.S. policy against terrorism. pemsilty Marriott in the chest, and Marriott assaulted her, Gaskins testified. He hit her on the top of her head and on her forehead, she said, until friends separated the two. Gaskins was treated and released from N.C. Memorial Hospital, after X-rays showed her skull was not fractured. Marriott is a back-up receiver for UNC's varsity football team. Hunt said Friday that because Marriott had a clean criminal record and he was willing to go through the counseling, the prayer for judgment was justified. She didn't give Mar riott the prayer for judgment just because he is an athlete, she said. Frost's head on Humphrey Bogart's body pointed a gun at the writer's back. About 10 minutes later, Ellison announced the story's title. He stopped writing periodically to stare at his typewriter and talk with observers. "You like seeing a human being in torment," he told the crowd. A self-described Jew from Ohio, Ellison calls himself a political liberal. "I more pity Reagan than hate him," he said. "The schmuck simply doesn't understand. He really and truly believes that there are Russians under the bed." Ellison has written for the televi sion program "The Twilight Zone," reviewed movies, and he will write an episode for the television program "Moonlighting." When asked if he would take a break to eat, Ellison replied, "I don't eat. I'm a writer, just throw me a raw haunch every once in a while." He said he tried not to let the adulation of his fans make him conceited. "I'm a nice guy. If my ego got too big my wife would bash me around." He doesnt have a problem with writer's block when he does the window writings because he knows how to beat it, he said. "Quit when you're on the climb, when you want to write so bad that your back teeth hurt." While Ellison sat in the window typing, people walking in the street stopped and watched him. He grinned and made faces back at them. "It's a living," he said.
