SOUTH BEND, Ind. - When
you're Mr. Everything for your team
and you go scoreless in the first half
and your squad is down by nine at
the break, you're expected to do
more than just look good dribbling.
Daviud Rivers took that advice to
heart Sunday, and when he was
finished, the Fighting Irish of Notre
Dame had pulled off a stunning 60
58 upset of top-ranked North Carol
ina at the Athletic and Convocation
Kenny Smith's injury 5
The Irish trailed by as much as
16 late in the first half, but in the
second half Rivers took over. He
scored all of his 14 points and hit
the pull-up jumper which Notre
Dame the lead for good at 56-55.
His excellence was not the result of
a Tar Heel defensive breakdown. Put
simply, he got hot.
"We made him earn the shots he
hit," said UNC's J.R. Reid, whose
team dropped to 18-2. "Players'
hands were all over him when he
shot. He's just an excellent player."
UNC coach Dean Smith, who saw
the longest winning streak in college
basketball end at 16 games, echoed
his center's sentiments. "Rivers hit
three real tough jump shots," he said.
"There was a hand up every time,
and he made it every time. We did
do a good job on him in the first
It was the final 20 minutes which
mattered, though, and down the
stretch the Irish consistently hit the
shots they had to. Rivers started
a late Notre Dame run by slashing
into the lane and pulling up for an
easy basket to cut a nine-point UNC
lead to 53-46. After a Jeff Lebo miss
from three-point range. Rivers came
back up the court and hit a 14-footer
from the top of the key. On their
next three trips down the floor, the
Irish went inside and were rewarded
with visits to the charity stripe.
Center Gary Voce, who finished
with an impressive 15 points and 10
rebounds, hit two free throws, as did
Donald Royal. Joe Wolf hit a
turnaround jumper to give UNC a
55-52 lead. The game's key sequence
Down three, Notre Dame kicked
the ball into Voce, averaging only
3.5 points per game, on the right
baseline. He pivoted and powered to
the hoop, made the basket and was
fouled by Wolf. UNC took its first
Voce missed the free throw, but
the ball was knocked out of bounds
by UNC. Rivers nailed a foul line
jumper to put the Irish up 56-55 with
1 :06 left. The Tar Heels tried to work
for a good shot, but Reid drove the
lane and put up a brick behind the
basket as he was falling down.
Rivers snatched the loose ball
away from Reid and was fouled
intentionally by Scott Williams. He
calmly canned both free throws to
give Notre Dame a 58-55 lead.
Lebo had a chance to tie it with
a double-pump three-pointer, but
missed. Voce hit two more free
throws, Lebo hit a technical foul shot
as a result of the crowd and then
a two-point attempt as the buzzer

Sunday's forum at Connor Resi
Brian Bailey said he differed from
other candidates because he under
stood the limitations of Student
Government. He said he would focus
on campus issues, leaving other
issues to interested student groups.
David Brady said that running a

Mark Gunter said his experience
allowed him to work well with other
campus leaders. He will work to meet
students' needs and create the best
policies on issues important to
students, he said.
Gordon Hill said that by contin

directly get input from students. He
promised to be directly involved with
students instead of relying on assist
ants and surveys.
Jaye Sitton said her Student
Congress experience prepared her to
continue to seek the same objectives
as student body president. Sitton
pointed to successes as a Student

in the races for student body
president, Daily Tar Heel editor,
and Carolina Athletic Associa

To endorse a candidate, the

The Student Activities Fund Office (SAFO)
runs efficiently and needs no major changes,
members of the Student Audit Board said
But communication between SAFO and the
student groups who use the office should be
improved, audit board members said. The
board oversees SAFO.
"I don't feel any dire changes need to be
made in how the office operates or in the
professional relationships between the office
and student groups," Audit Board Chairman
Mitch Camp said Sunday.
The board consists of five students and two
advisers, one from the School of Business
Administration and one from Student
Government. The board has begun to search
for a new SAFO director with Dean of
Students Frederic Schroeder.
The announcement of the pending retire
ment of Frances Sparrow, who has been the
director of SAFO for the past 30 years, has
spurred talk of change within the office.
Changes may include improving commun
ication between SAFO and students and using
an independent group to appoint audit board
"We need to help people understand a little
more about what the audit board is there for,
what it's about," Camp said.
Acting as trustee for students who pay
student activity fees is the board's main
responsibility, he said.
The board oversees SAFO's internal office
policy and approves its yearly operating
budget. Camp said.
To ensure that groups funded by student
fees are operating according to Student
Government's treasury laws, the board
conducts monthly random audits of the
"I'd like to see the audit board begin
communicating more with groups that have
accounts in the office, so they could see things
like how we set a schedule of fees," Camp
Giving student groups more access to
SAFO's financial reports and audits would
help them understand where their money goes
when SAFO's fees increase, said audit board
member Page Allen.
For instance, student groups were not
aware that one increase in fees was caused
by action to make SAFO more efficient, Allen
said. "SAFO bought a computer and didn't
really let people know about it," he said. "They
had to increase the amount of money groups
pay to use the office to pay for the computer,
but nobody knew that."
Distributing SAFO's yearly state audit to
student groups could also help allay clients'
fears about where their money is going, Allen
Allen stressed that SAFO's staff is flexible
and efficient, and that although changes can
be made, the office now operates efficiently.
Student groups must follow certain proce
dures to work with SAFO, board member
Russ McElroy said.
"There are procedures that need to be stuck
to," he said. "There are going to be some
problems when that doesn't happen. It all
boils down to personality," he said.
Board members disagree with the criticism,
which arose in a 1976 report on the Student
Activities Fund System, that the board is self
appointed, and thus can choose its own
"1 wouldn't say the audit board is 100
percent self-appointing," McElroy said. "The
whole procedure that you go through to wind
up on the audit board goes through Student
To appoint new members of the audit
board, board members under the current
system choose two replacements for each open
position. They submit the choices to the
student body president, with a recommenda
tion for one of the two applicants.
The student body president must approve
one of the board's nominations; if not, the
board goes back to the field of applicants and
submits new nominations.
Student Congress must also approve the
audit board members, who serve two-year
Audit board members don't see a need to
change the appointment system. "I think we
are appointed by an outside source," Camp
said. "That's how it works now."
The board is always looking for ways to
improve the fund office, board member Mike
Oakes said. At the Wednesday meeting of
students and administrators to form a job
description for the new director, Oakes said
that several suggestions to improve SAFO
"We do want to look at those suggestions,
and see what we can do abut them," Oakes
The board recognizes that this is the time
for change, McElroy said, and the board
wants to work to make SAFO run more
Ex-leaders of drag raltnare, law enforcement to ' debate

Timothy Leary, who in the 1960s
extolled the virtues of mind expan
sion, will meet Peter Bensinger,
former chief of the Drug Enforce
ment Administration (DEA), to
debate mandatory drug testing
tonight at 8 in Memorial Hall.
Admission is $1 for students and
$3 for the general public.
Leary has resurrected old slogans
like "Hell no, we won't go!" and
"Give peace a chance" for the war
on drugs to force a calm, logical
dialogue about an issue steeped in
hysteria, he said in a recent telephone
Bensinger, now president of Ben-

is favored by the vast majority of
Americans, and he sees drug testing

Bensinger, DEA head under three
presidents, has had successes in
lowering heroin imports and the
number of addicts. He was also
instrumental in creating the federal
law that allows the government to

the '60s" is applied by Leary's own
publicity representatives, he calls
that the work of lazy journalists.

No longer a promoter of drugs for

pro-choice regarding drugs in debate

he said. "They want to control what
