By GRANT PARSONS
A new SAFO director, who will
replace current director Frances
Sparrow upon her retirement,
should be ready to restructure the
Student Activities Fund System, a
committee of students and admin
istrators concluded Wednesday.
The committee, composed of
SAFO employees, student leaders
and University administrators, met
to suggest job descriptions for a new
SAFO director to be selected by mid
April. Since Sparrow's retirement has
been expected. Dean of Students
Frederic Schroeder said he began
meeting with students last summer
to plan the changeover. Schroeder

CLEMSON, S.C. In a perfor
mance that can only be characterized
as schizophrenic, the UNC Tar Heels
rebounded from a horrible first-half
showing to defeat the Clemson
Tigers 108-99 Wednesday night. The
win moves the top-ranked Tar Heels
to 18-1 overall and 7-0 in the ACC.
Clemson falls to 18-2 and 4-2.
"Obviously, we're delighted to win
ths game," UNC coach Dean Smith
said. "There were two different
North Carolina teams out there
tonight one in the first half and
another in the second."
UNC trailed 50-38 at intermission,
but Kenny Smtih and J.R. Reid
combinbed to dominate the final 20
minutes to spark the Tar Heel
comback. Smith was 4-of-4 from 3
point range as he scored 27 of his
career-high 41 points, while Reid
added 13 on 6-of-6 shooting in that
Smith and Reid were the keys to
the two Tar Heel spurts which gave
the team the victory. The first came
with the score 56-49 Clemson, when
North Carolina suddenly discovered
its customary game and began
pounding the ball inside. Reid scored
on three consecutive trips down the
court, and after Dave Popson and
Horace Grant traded baskets, Smith
hit twice from 3-point range to give
UNC a 63-60 lead.
Clemson was able, as it had all
night, to withstand the charge. An
Anthony Jenkins 3-point bomb put
the Tigers back on top, and when
two minutes later Grant worked
inside and converted a three-point
play, Clemson led 78-73. That,
however, would be the Tigers' last
hurrah, as Smith decided to take
over the game.
He began UNC's final run by
hitting a jumper off the dribble. He
then nailed two free throws and
jammed home an intercepted pass.
Three minutes later, Jeff Lebo hit
a 3-pointer from the top of the key
to put UNC up 9 1-83. The Tar Heels
never looked back, as they coasted
through a final four minutes of free

Those opportunities were
nowhere to be found in the first half,
primarily because the Tar Heels

If there are tuition increases,
Bailey said "the University should

At a Black Student Movement
forum Wednesday, about 60 stu

A BSM panel and members of the
audience at the Upendo Lounge
confronted the candidates, asking
what they would do to increase black
enrollment and how hey would
work to make blacks more comfor
table on campus.
Jaye Sitton said the UNC admin
istration's lack of commitment to
ending racism on campus is an
obstacle to reaching minority enroll
"That commitment is not there to
the extent it needs to be," she said.
"Blacks sense that. That's one reason
they don't want to come."
As evidence of her dedication to
black issues at UNC, Sitton cited two
Student Congress bills she authored,
calling for University recognition of
Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and
urging the Endowment Board to
divest from companies doing busi
ness in South Africa.
David Brady suggested moving
groups of black students from South
Campus to North Campus residence
halls. "The majority of blacks on this
campus live in two or three dorms,"
he said. "When you live with people,
you can learn about them and respect
"Unequal" is a better word than
"uncomfortable" to describe black
status at the University, Brady said.
He cited the presence of all-white
fraternities as an example of the
inequality blacks face at UNC.
Many black students don't come
to UNC because they don't know
anything about it, Brady said. "We
need to show people what Carolina
has to offer." ,
Gordon Hill said that moving
blacks from one part of campus to
another won't help to solve the
problem of racism on campus. "If
you have 1 5 whites who feel uncom
fortable on one side of (a predom
inantly black) campus, it's not going
to make, them feel better to move
eight of them to the other side of

will allow students to stay in school,"
Hill said. "Everyone wants a Black

at feasibility. We have to look at
ways to keep students here."

Brian Bailey said giving blacks a
tangible example of the administra
tion's commitment to minorities is
needed to improve minority enrol
lment. "We need something tangible,
something on campus to show that
the administration cares about
blacks. Committees won't help."
When asked about his statement
that the divestment issue would not
improve student life on campus,
Bailey repeated that divestment is
not a suitable issue for Student
"The way I define a campus issue
is something that improves student
life on campus, something that we
can go through the administration
to change," he said. "I don't think
divestment is going to change stu
Although divestment is a "great
moral stance," Bailey said it should
be pursued by special-interest groups
like the Anti-Apartheid Support
Group, not Student Government.
Keith Cooper disagreed. "Student
Government should hit the Endow
ment Board very, very hard," he said.
Cooper said he wants to join
forces with the BSM to eliminate
institutionalized racism at UNC. "I
will fight very, very hard for the
rights of students."
Financing more high school tutor
ing programs and giving minority
students information about financial
aid, tuition and housing would
attract more blacks, he said. "Insti
tuting these programs will, in the
long run, lead to a beefed-up minor
Extending UNC's summer pro
gram for minority students is one of
Mark Gunter 's goals as student body
president. "I'd like to extend the
summer program so we can get
students to come back and expe
rience what UNC is like during fall
and spring semesters, which is
entirely different from the summer."
Increasing enrollment would
make blacks more comfortable at
UNC, Gunter told the BSM panel.
"I do not know exactly how you feel,
but numbers are the main reason for
being uncomfortable. I think we do
need to move people up to North
