Black Monday will replace Black

the stock market plummeted a record
508.33 points this week.
Monday's crash wiped out more

the nation's stocks, according to
The 22.6 percent decline almost
doubled the 12.82 percent drop of

States into the Great Depression.
But observers predict that the effect
of Monday's catastrophe will not be
as devastating as that of the crash
"That was an economy and mar

trigger a recession, said Stephen

tougher for people to find jobs,
leading to possible layoffs and higher

But Allen added that he thought
a recession was unlikely.

Rogers said many businesses now

Some companies will not issue stocks,

opportunities," he said.

Two University students
'arrested on raoe ctmrees
By LYDIAN BERNHARDT
Two UNC students have been
charged with the second-degree
rape of a female student on Aug.
20 at the Sigma Phi Epsilon house,
according to Chapel Hill police.
Bradley Bowers, 20, and Fred
erick Harrison, 20, both of 207
West Cameron Ave., were arrested
Wednesday following a lengthy
police investigation and were held
by police Thursday morning. Both
men are members of the Sigma Phi
Epsilon fraternity, and both are
They made their first court
appearance Thursday, at which the
judge determined that the charges
were proper, and he formally
explained the charges and
informed them of their rights.
Bowers and Harrison were
released on $2,500 secured bond
after being charged.
Bowers said last week that he is
innocent of the charges, although
he also said he was nervous about
being on trial. He would not
comment on whether he knew the
woman who reported the rape.
Harrison could not be reached for

degree rape is defined as forced
sexual intercourse without the

UNC student aid officials
defend Mgh textbook prices

Roger McDougal, a junior biology
major from Fayetteville, budgets his
yearly expenses around the approx
imately $170 he pays each semester
Along with others, McDougal has
helped turn a popular question into
an bi-annual cliche for college stu
dents: "Why do books cost so much?"
The Black Student Movement
recently generated controversy by
threatening to boycott the Student
Stores in response to high textbook
prices, calling students' attention to
the system for setting prices and
"I want to know why I pay $50
for a book, sell it back to the Student
Stores for $20, and then see it on sale
again for $50 the next semester," said
Amanda Thompson, a junior psy
chology major from Charlotte.
Some students think the profits
from book sales are used for scho
larships; some think they line the
wallets of textbook writers or sellers.
Few seem to know for sure, but
animosity about the system often runs
"The student store takes advantage
of us every semester," said Lauren

to hold off Wolfpacko 17-14
Freshman tailback Reggie Clark finds daylight in second-quarter action Saturday
By MIKE BERARDINO
Assistant Sports Editor
RALEIGH The plan was simple.
Tired of seeing the Tar Heels flounder by "passing
just enough to lose," North Carolina coach Dick Cram
decided a return to basics was in order for Saturday's
key matchup with N.C. State.
Rather than put the ball in the air 34 or 41 times,
as they had in their previous two games (both losses),
the bigger Tar Heels would try to grind out a much
needed victory over the smaller, but quicker Wolf pack.
The plan worked.
Running the ball on 82 percent of its 86 offensive plays,
North Carolina dominated time of possession (40:44
19: 16) and wore down N.C. State. Cram's return to ultra
conservatism yielded a 17-14 UNC victory, snapped the
Tar Heels' two-game slide and kept alive their hopes
for an Atlantic Coast Conference championship.
UNC improved to 4-3 overall and 2-1 in the conference.
The Wolfpack fell to 2-4 and 2-2.
Kenny Miller booted three field goals and the
remarkable Norris Davis, UNC's senior strong safety,
found another way to score, as the Tar Heels built a
17-7 lead and then held off a late State rally for the
win before 57,400 in Carter-Finley Stadium.
"The coaches looked us right in the eye and said, 'We
want to ran the ball,' " said Steve Steinbacher, UNC's
junior left guard. "They laid the cards on the table and
said, 'It's your hand now, play it. We have confidence
in you; you have to have confidence in yourselves.
"The ball was in our court and we answered the
Seventy-one rushing plays yielded 269 of UNC's 358
yards of total offense. Junior fullback James Thompson
lumbered for a career-best 94 yards, and 5-10 senior Eric
Starr came off the bench to ramble for 129 yards on
"That's what we do best run the ball. That's what
Carolina was always known for in the past," said Starr,
who didnt start Saturday's game due to a deep thigh
bruise suffered against Wake Forest. "The line just did
a great job of blocking. They were blowing their guys
out of there. All I had to do was ran the ball hard and
go through the holes."
Freshman tailback Reggie Clark made his first
collegiate start and picked up 49 yards on 12 carries
before leaving the game late in the second quarter with
braised ribs. Clark's injury left Starr and converted
defensive back Stuffy Hewitt as UNC's only available
"I knew I had to play because of the (injury) situation,"
Starr said. "Sure, my leg wasnt 100 percent. But you
have to put it behind you. You have to play with pain.
Someone had to come through and do the job."

resident Spangler looks back on Ms first year in office
By MICHAEL JACKSON
This week marks the first anniver
sary of C. D. Spangler's inauguration
as president of the 16-campus UNC
system. In a recent interview,
Spangler discussed the past, present
and future of the University system
after serving as its leader for more
than a year.
Question: What has been your
biggest accomplishment since youVe
been president of the UNC system?
Answer: Well, the president of the
University of North Carolina has a
lot of responsibilities, and one of
them is similar to a doctor with a
patient, and that's to do no harm.
And I think the biggest accomplish
ment is that I cannot sense that there's
been any harm done to the University,
either by my actions or the actions
Q: How active a role do you wish
to play in the affairs of the other 15
A: They all are the same to me from
the standpoint of my responsibilities.
The University of North Carolina is
an organization which has 16 cam
puses from Elizabeth City down on
the coast to Western Carolina Uni
versity in Cullowhee, and my respon
sibilities are equal to each university
to see that they have the resources
they need to provide the education
to the students, that they have good
administration and that the students
get what they came for, of course,
which is a good education.
Q: What do you think of the
recently released athletic reports?
(The reports, submitted by 13 UNC
system chancellors, showed improve
ments in admission policies and
graduation rates for student-athletes.)
A: I'm pleased about them. The
Board of Governors has shown a
substantial amount of interest in
athletics on all of our campuses. The
reason for their interest is that there
is a perception across the nation that
academic qualifications have been
disregarded in the field of athletics.
That may be so at certain universities;
it most certainly is not so at the
University of North Carolina at
We recognize, all of us whether
it's the coach, the athletic director,
the president or the chancellor we
recognize that academics is the No.
1 function of this University and that
everything else comes in with a less
position of importance. We have
coaches who want their boys to
graduate and who want their girls to
do well in academic affairs, and that's
as it should be. No one should come
to the University of North Carolina
who does not have a good oppor
tunity to graduate.
I am pleased that the reports show
that our graduation rates of our
athletes, that those rates are increas
ing and that the qualifications of the
students coming to the University are
greater than they've been in the past.
Good progress on all fronts.
Q: What is your view of student
A: I would not want to be a part
