Dean plans program

By KRISTEN GARDNER
Assistant University Editor
In response to a recent incident of
racial harassment, UNC's School of
Business Administration will sponsor
racial awareness workshops for
students and faculty, the school's
dean announced Thursday.
In a meeting for all students and
faculty in the MBA program, Dean
Paul Rizzo responded to the incident
for the first time and addressed its
possible negative effect on the
"I can't help but feel a certain
amount of shame and embarrass
ment," Rizzo said. "I feel compelled
to apologize to the black population
of the school."
The incident, which occurred eight
months ago but was not made public
until last week, concerned a class
assignment which contained an
offensive comment about black
workers. The assignment, or brief,
was slipped into the mail file of a

UNC's recent progress as a
research university has brought praise
and monetary awards pouring in.
But amid the kudos for Chancellor
Christopher Fordham and the
research grants which total more than
$100 million, questions continue to
arise about the relationship between
research and teaching.
The conflict between the two is a
topic of debate among many admin
istrators and faculty, who continue
to ask if the attention paid to research

can be organized, preferably before
the end of this year, Rizzo said.
"We have to alert people to their

In a recent interview, Fordham
said the relationship is better de

"Teaching and researching go hand

of being a teacher are mastery of

Falwell slams Soviets,
By LAURIE DUNCAN
Lashing out against the Soviet
Union, the Rev. Jerry Falwell
received a mixture of hisses and
applause from a full house at
Duke's Page Auditorium Thurs
day as he criticized the socialist
government for its emphasis on
"Freedom is the basic moral
issue of all issues," but in the
Soviet Union, people cannot enjoy
the freedoms of speech and reli

sponsored by Duke Chapel.
"You cannot allow people to

UNC has been named one of the
best research universities in the
country, according to a national poll
in the upcoming issue of U.S. News
and World Report.
The University ranks 11th among
204 major research universities that
are the leading granters of doctoral
degrees, says a national poll of college
presidents to be printed in the
magazine's Oct. 26 issue.
UNC's ranking fell two places from
the ninth-place position it held in the
same poll in 1985.
Provost Samuel Williamson said
Thursday night that "ups and downs"
in such ratings are natural.

As part of a study of the combined
effects of alcohol and marijuana,
some UNC students are being paid
$25 per session to use the drugs while
their reactions are monitored.
The study is being conducted by
Dr. Mario Perez-Reyes, professor of
psychiatry and director of the UNC
Center for Alcohol Studies. .
In the experiment, which will begin
in a few weeks, student volunteers will
drink liquor and smoke marijuana
while working with a machine that
tests their manual dexterity and
concentration. The participants will
receive $50 when they complete the
experiments, and $10 each for two
initial sessions, earning a total of
"We don't yet know what the
effects of the interaction between
alcohol and marijuana are," said
Perez-Reyes, who has been studying
the biological effects of illicit drugs,
primarily marijuana and cocaine, for
that trust to their everyday lives.
Doing away with police forces,
leaving doors unlocked at night or
spending a night in Central Park
are actions that would provoke
realistic thinking among these
people, he said.
Falwell hosts the Old-Time
Gospel Hour weekly television
program, and heads the Moral
Majority, a political organization
that endorses conservative stances
on moral issues.
He recently gained notoriety
when PTL Chairman Jim Bakker,
embroiled in an extramarital sex
scandal, handed Falwell control of
the PTL ministry. Falwell and his
10-member board of directors
resigned from PTL last week after
a federal bankruptcy judge refused
to endorse their plan for reorgan
izing the ministry.
Churches have learned from the
PTL scandal the importance of

The chancellor said the faculty
members deserve credit for making
UNC the top research university in
the Southeast, because the chancel
lor's attitude doesnt have a great
effect on the quality of teaching.
"The main thing is the attitude,
quality and curiosity of the faculty,"
Provost' Samuel Williamson
agreed that research benefits teach

"All of this involves a lot of
perceptions," he said. "If it were a
big drop, we would be worried."
UNC must continue to work to
maintain its quality, Williamson said.
"This represents public recognition of
the excellence of the institution, and
it makes us proud."
UNC tied Cornell University and
Irthe Massachusetts Institute of Tech
nology for the 11th spot in the poll.
Only two public universities were
listed above UNC: the University of
Michigan at Ann Arbor was 8th and
the University of California at Ber
keley was 5th.
In the poll, the chief executive
officers of 1,329 colleges and univer
sities were asked to pick the 10

been done before."

"will study the effects of alcohol with
cocaine and amphetamines.
Some of the students will be given
placebos during the study, and some
will use combinations of drugs and
placebos. They will not know whether
they are receiving "real" drugs or not.
Perez-Reyes said this is necessary to
avoid psychological bias on the part
of the research subjects.
"I am interested in finding out what
the effects are of using these drugs
with alcohol, as opposed to using
alcohol with marijuana," Perez
Reyes said. "Intuitively, you would

said professors still should sharpen
their teaching skills.
Williamson said that once a pro
fessor is granted tenure, the emphasis
from the administration on teaching
and research is equal.
"Tenure balances teaching and
research, with a slight edge to
research," he said. "After that, it's up
to the professor."

communications, disagreed. He said
