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 debut, 82-76. 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." Cooper joins race for SBP By JO FLEISCHER Assistant University Editor Junior Keith Cooper, a history major from Windsor, has announced his candidacy for student body president. 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, representative course. 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 Biggs states platform in CAA president bid By KIMBERLY EDENS Staff Writer Junior Randy Diggs, a statistics major from Asheboro, has announced his candidacy for Carol ina Athletic Association (CAA) president. 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.

"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 See COOPER page 2 student input." 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 See DIGGS page 2 A gentle imposition never n k..

State's Trena Trice A vauiM By SUZANNE JEFFRIES Staff Writer 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." Womack said. Claude E. "Gene" Swecker, asso ciate vice chancellor of facilities management, agreed. "We take care of the program thrusts of the Uni- Randy Diggs - j ? jjjr 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."

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, he said. "(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, sKesaid 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. falls within business and finance, along with the airport. Student Stores, the Carolina Inn, the Uni versity laundry, accounting, accounts receivable, payroll and purchasing, Womack said. Betsy Faulkner, Womack's admi nistrative assistant, said that with about 1 ,200 to 1 ,300 people involved in various degrees with the office, there aren't many slow days. "The nature of the work is very fast-paced and fairly exhilarating at times," she said. 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 the divisions of facilities manage District Attorney (Carl Fox)," he said. Lohmann would not comment on when the investigation began or how many police officers are involved. Asked how long the investigation is expected to last, Lohmann said, "We don't have a timeline on that right now." An SB1 spokesman said Tuesday Please check this sheet as soon as possible. We are asking that you turn in an assignment that has a deadline. Thus, the earlier you check the instructions, the earlier you can get started. Only articles submitted by those students who attended the meeting Ex Libris 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 that quickly." ment if those in the division reported directly to Swecker instead of Womack. "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 (structures) and then maintaining 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 for bids. Seven new buildings, additions to buildings and more than 15 renovations are in the design stages. Facilities management maintains the electrical distribution of the campus telephone system, and it is responsible for maintenance and repair work, plumbing, housekeep ing and maintenance of the grounds. 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.
