Hot shooting lifts f$
State over UNC
By MIKE BERARDINO
Assistant Sports Editor
When N.C. State plays North Carolina, you can forget
. about injuries, winning streaks, losing streaks and virtually
every conceivable statistic in the book. Every stat, that
is, save shooting percentage.
The 13th-ranked Wolfpack women shot 54 percent from
the field Tuesday night, compared with 43 percent . for
UNC, to build up a big lead and then held off a late
North Carolina rally to spoil the Tar Heels' Smith Center
A partisan crowd of 2,700 went home disappointed
as senior center Trena Trice had 27 points and forward
:. Annemarie Tread way 24 for N.C. State , which improved
to 11-3 overall and 4-1 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
North Carolina, in losing for the third time in four outings,
dropped to 8-5 and 2-2.
"They just shot the lights out," said UNC coach Sylvia
Rhyne-Hatchell. "I thought we played pretty good,
although we got a little confused out there at times. They
just shot so well. Shooting percentage that was the
difference in the game.'"
Despite the disparity in shooting percentage, North
Carolina was in great position to win the game, one of
three they will play in the Smith Center this season.
After Trice gave State its biggest lead at 62-50 with
1 1 minutes left. North Carolina outscored the visitors 18
7 over the next six minutes to pull within 69-68 at the
4:54 mark. Full-court pressure by the Tar Heels was
instrumental in the run, which featured three baskets
apiece from Liza Donnell and Marlene List.
But the Wolfpack responded with eight straight points,
four by Trice, to take a 77-68 lead with 2:39 to play
and ice the issue. North Carolina missed all six shots
it took from the floor in the crucial stretch.
The Tar Heels were led in scoring by Dawn Royster
with 18, Donnell with 16, and List with 12. North Carolina
outrebounded the visitors from Raleigh 43-38 and outshot
them 67-59. But where UNC struggled from the field,
State was poker hot. .
"I thought we had a lot of good shots, they just didn't
go in," Hatchell said. "I wouldn't say we lost our
composure (down the stretch). Wee been in a lot of
close games already this season and we've shown a lot
of mental toughness."

Junior Keith Cooper, a history
major from Windsor, has announced
his candidacy for student body
If elected, Cooper said he would
lead a "coalition for progress," which
would bring students from diverse
backgrounds together to move
student government on a positive,
Foreign students, blacks, whites,
graduates, undergraduates and stu
dent leaders would be brought
together, and Cooper would try to
create ways to have student govern
ment turn their "commonality of
goals" into action if elected, he said.
Cooper said one goal would be
to encourage UNC to divest its
holdings in South Africa. "Student
leaders will have to innovatively
spearhead efforts to encourage the
endowment board to divest from
South Africa," he said. To do this
he would bring together student
leaders from each of the 16 campuses
in the UNC-system to lead a massive
one-day demonstration focusing

Junior Randy Diggs, a statistics
major from Asheboro, has
announced his candidacy for Carol
ina Athletic Association (CAA)
Diggs said that if elected he will
attempt to make students mort
aware of the CAA. "The CAA can't
satisfy students' needs if students
don't know the CAA is there to
help," he said.
"The whole purpose of the CAA
is to represent the needs of the
students to the athletic department.
I think that's one thing that needs
to be improved," he said. "The CAA
needs to put more emphasis on

attention on the issue, he said.
"There should be a balance
between specific campus issues like
financial aid, a frustrating bureau
cracy and student rights, while
keeping students educated about
other issues on a local, national and
campus level," Cooper said.
On campus, Cooper favors a
better parking program with more

Diggs said that in the past the
CAA had tried to implement special
projects like a shuttlebus for golf
classes at Finley Golf Course, but
they had been unsuccessful. "If
students knew about it, then they'd
raise a little noise and the admin
istration would have to listen."
Diggs said another of his goals is
a more traditional and spirited
homecoming that would appeal to
the entire student body. He said he
would propose a spirit week with
competition between residence halls
and Greek organizations to get
students more involved. "Guest

From the simplest plumbing
repairs to negotiating contractual
agreements to overseeing almost
$600 million in operating funds, the
Office of Business and Finance
affects every aspect of the University.
Facilities management, finance,
business and the offices that fall
under these divisions are staffed by
hard-working and dedicated admin
istrators and staff. Vice Chancellor
Farris Womack said.
"Business and finance is a large
number of people who work very
hard to do a good job, and the reason
they do a good job is that they have
great loyalty and dedication to this
institution," Womack said.
"We function as a support to the
academic program of the institu
tion," he said. "Our function is not
to teach and not to do research and
not to do public service, but it's to
make it possible for people to do that
in the most effective way.
"Our role and our goal is to be
a strong partner in support of the
academic mission of this institution."
Claude E. "Gene" Swecker, asso
ciate vice chancellor of facilities
management, agreed. "We take care
of the program thrusts of the Uni-
off -checks smd Ibalainices
versity," he said. "We try to help
fulfill those requirements in terms of
physical facilities, and at the same
time, we're trying to maintain a
campus that is attractive to every
body students, faculty, visitors
and potential students."
Wayne R. Jones, associate vice
chancellor of finance, also said the
office exists to support the University
in its primary functions of teaching,
research and public service. "To the
extent that we do our job well," he
said, "it should be easier for the
faculty to do their job well and for
the students to experience as little
difficulty as possible."
Responsibility for the overall
management of the business, finance
and some administrative aspects of
the University falls to business and
finance, Womack said.
"It is our responsibility to admin
ister the budget," he said. "We
prepare the University's budget and
submit it to the Board of Governors,
and they in turn submit it to the
legislature." Also included are over
seeing funding payouts and mana
ging the physical plant.

Students will have a shorter school
year and a tighter exam schedule
starting this fall when two new
policies go into effect, UNC officials
George Kennedy, chairman of the
UNC Faculty Council, proposed a
revised calendar year to go into effect
in fall 1987, and the administration
accepted the proposal last year.
Kennedy said the current length
of the school year may interfere with
students' summer employment.
Scheduling registration during the
middle of August is simply too soon,
"(Also), the faculty has several
conventions scheduled during
August that interfere with our
current fall semester," Kennedy said.
"1 encouraged a shorter year so that
the faculty could attend them."
Gillian Cell, the dean of the
College of Arts and Sciences, also
was on the policy committee. She
said she endorsed the policy so
students wouldn't have to live as long
in residence halls without air
conditioning. Shortening the year
from the beginning would do that,
University Registrar David Lanier
said that the shorter year would be
implemented gradually. In fall 1987,
registration will be Aug. 24. In fall
1988, registration will be Aug. 29.

Womack heads the office, and
directly under him is an assistant, an
internal auditor and an assistant to
the vice chancellor for legal affairs.
Jones, Swecker and Charles C.
Antle, associate vice chancellor of
business, have responsibility for
major functions within the business
and finance office, Womack said.
"We try to approach our job as
a team," he said, adding that he views
the associate vice chancellors as the
players who help make the office a
strong supporter and partner of the
academic side of the University.
Swecker's position as associate
vice chancellor of facilities manage
ment was created by Womack in
February 1986 because he felt it
would improve coordination within

Lanier said breaks would not be
shortened, and no days will be added
to the end of the year.
Now, each semester runs about 1 8
weeks one week more than the
public school law's minimum of 17
weeks. The cuts will reduce each
semester to the 17-week minimum.
Also, the administration has
attempted to reduce faculty and
students' stress by shortening the
exam period by one day, Lanier said.
The current exam schedule con
tains nine days, while the new policy
calls for an eight-day exam period.
The two exams on the ninth day were
rescheduled, causing six exams
within two days. Those two dates will
be decided later.
The three exams on each of those
days will be held at 8 a.m., 1 p.m.
and 4 p.m.
Lanier said few people should
have three exams in one day, because
exams were scheduled with the most
unpopular class times given during
the three-exams-in-one-day period.
If a student has more than two
exams in any 24-hour period, the
third can be rescheduled, he said.
"We needed more time to clear
students' (financial accounts) than
we were getting," Lanier said. "Also,
with the new diplomas that state
'with the highest distinction' or with
high distinction,' we couldn't find
grade point averages and print them

"Facilities management is a sup
port operation for the University in
the sense that we deal with assisting
people in determining and defining
their facilities requirements, and then
transferring them into the physical

them," Swecker said.
The facilities management div
ision oversees the University's $200
million construction program.
Seventeen projects are under con
struction now, and five more are out

additions to buildings and more than
15 renovations are in the design
Facilities management maintains
the electrical distribution of the
campus telephone system, and it is
responsible for maintenance and
repair work, plumbing, housekeep

The physical plant employs about
800 people. As the University con
tinues to grow and new requirements
are imposed on operation and
maintenance, the division would
continue growing, Swecker said.
