By BECKY RIDDICK
Purdy's is changing again a new
name, a new look and new owners,
but an older clientele. ,
"Sponge's will be a dance club,"
said Alan Mason, club manager and
head disc jockey. "We're just no
longer going to be 18 and over."
Mark Altman and his partner
George Craver, both former UNC
students, purchased the bar and
dance club Aug. 31. Sponge's should
be opening in early October in the
old Purdy's location at 159 12 E.
"As much as we enjoyed (admitting
a younger crowd), it is a real hassle
to keep people from drinking under
age," he said.

A group of anti-apartheid protes
ters paid tribute to Steven Biko, a
martyr, of South Africa's anti
apartheid movement, during a rally
in the Pit on Friday.
About 15 members of Action
Against Apartheid used a combina
tion of speakers and songs to raise
students' awareness of Biko, an anti
apartheid activist and one of the
founders of the black consciousness
On Sept. 6, 1977, South African
police took Biko into custody and
interrogated him. He went into a
coma caused by head injuries he
sustained during the interrogation,
and died several da' s later.

One major change is that Sponge's

Chancellor Christopher Fordham
announced Friday that private and
public funding for research to UNC
topped the $100 million mark for
fiscal 1986-87 for the first time in the
Grants and contracts to UNC
totaled $105.2 million for the year,
an 11 percent increase over fiscal
1985-86 when UNC received $95.1
"The University in 1975 ranked
34th in terms of federal support; by
1984, 30th; 1985, 27th; and we believe
that 6-87 will find us in the top 20,"
Fordham said at this year's first
Faculty Council meeting.

North Carolina moved its
record to 2-1, while Tech dropped
Senior quarterback Mark Maye
was deadlier than a Lenoir taco
salad, riddling the Tech secondary
for a UNC-record 406 yards on
23-of-38 passing, including 296
yards and four touchdowns in the
second half alone. Marriott was
on the receiving end of nine Maye
passes, good for three TDs and
a school-record 247 yards.
The final Maye-to-Marriott TD
strike, a right-to-left crossing
pattern from 18 yards out,
accounted for the winning points
with 4:32 to play. Just 2:16 earlier,
the same combination had tied the
game at 23-23 with a 25-yard
hookup on nearly the same play.

UNC's largest source of research
In spite of all the research con
ducted at UNC, Fordham said teach
ing effort has not been sacrificed.
"It is clear to me that the faculty
has not, during this strong expansion
of research period, neglected its
emphasis on teaching excellence and
teaching responsibility," he said.
"In short, our emphasis on teaching
has not declined; it has expanded and
focused," Fordham said. "For its
ability to concentrate on teaching and
research simultaneously and effec
tively, I extend to the faculty my
admiration and appreciation."
As reasons for the increase in
funding, Fordham cited the quality
said. In addition, a lettermen's club
for former and current UNC athletes
who have earned letters will be built
beneath the press boxes, he said.
Paul Hoolahan, athletic fitness
director, said lights for late afternoon
and evening games would be
. installed,. but that the lights would
probably need to fit certain
"The BOT (Board of Trustees) has
requested that the lights stay as low
as possible and still be functional,"
Renovation plans had to be mod
ified because the original contracting
bid was $1.5 million more than the
$5.9 million estimated budget, Hool
said. "When you make all the
catches you get all the attention,
but I was just in the right spot
at the right times. It was a whole
team effort great quarterback,
great line, great defense."
Comebacks, like collapses, are

Another reason is the creation of
a new administrative post to guide
research at UNC, Fordham said.
Dennis O'Connor was appointed to
the position of vice chancellor for
research last year.
Fordham also made a plea to
academic departments to concentrate
on recruiting new black faculty and
increasing black student recruitment.

Plans to extend press boxes across
the upper decks on both sides of the

but now the program is concerned
with renovating only the south side
of the stadium.
Officials had planned to begin the
renovations last summer, but the
overbidding will delay construction
until after the 1987 football season.
Although construction could take
as long as two years, Rutherford said
it will not interfere with UNC's
