"I don't see how the administration
can refuse us on this issue," commit
tee member Jerry Jones said. Jones,
who said he has not eaten since Feb.
3, expressed surprise that the admin

Amy Thompson, a committee
member who is also fasting, said she
hoped the administration would
accede to the committee's request.

Tar Heels down State in OT
By JAMES SUROWIECKI
Drama can arise from the most
unlikely of beginnings. Such was
the case Thursday night, as a
sloppy, error-filled basketball
game became a thriller in a matter
of minutes, with the North Carol
ina Tar Heels holding off N.C.
State, 75-73, in overtime.
The win upped UNC's record
to 17-3 overall, 6-2 in the confer
ence. State fell to 15-5, 5-3.
It was a game ruled by spurts,
as the two ACC contenders spent
nearly all of regulation in a vain
search for some kind of offensive
rhythm, trading control of the
game in deference to each other's
shooting. The intensity with which
it was played translated into
innumerable mistakes. UNC fin
ished with 23 turnovers, State with
The first big run of the contest
came midway through the first
half. Leading 17-12, the Wolf pack
went on a 15-7 run, sparked by
the sharp shooting of freshman
guard Rodney Monroe and some
rare success inside. A Chucky
Brown layup put State up 32-19,
but a Jeff Lebo fastbreak basket
seemed to shift the momentum,
and Wolfpack coach Jim Valvano
called timeout at the 7:09 mark.
The timeout apparently didn't
work, though, for the Tar Heels
scored 13 of the halfs final 16
points, with Kevin Madden nail
ing UNC's first three-pointer of the
half at the buzzer. That bucket left
State with a tenuous 35-34 lead.
That late run enabled the Tar
Heels to atone for some early
offensive incoherence. "We were
trying to get a feel for each other,"
said Scott Williams, who finished
with 13 points. "We were taking
shots out of our offensive structure
in the first half."
The one exception to that was
6-foot-9 sophomore J.R. Reid,
who was an offensive force during
the first 20 minutes, scoring nine
points while going right at the
State defense. Reid was offensively
ineffective in the second half, when
he was scoreless, but his team
mates filled the void.
Picking up where they had left
off, the Tar Heels took the floor
for the final 20 minutes and very
nearly knocked the Wolfpack out
of the game. UNC combined

SBP hopefuls suggest improvements in student financial aid
By JUSTIN McGUIRE
and MARK FOLK
Student body president candidates
addressed the issue of financial aid
for students at a forum Thursday
sponsored by the Association of
Keith Poston, Sandy Rierson, Bill
Yelverton, Jody Beasley, Brien(Lewis,
Kevin Martin and David Maynard
appeared at the forum, held in the
Poston said University alumni
should provide donations to aid
students with financial difficulty.
The Carolina Fund does that to
a certain extent, but it would be better
to rely on personal contacts and
friends, Poston said.
He was awake a long time before he remembered that his heart
said. "IVe dealt with him in the past
and I know he is a very morally sound
man, and I think that he will consider
the issue very carefully."
But University administrators said
Thursday that it will be difficult for
UNC to cancel the CIA visit.
Donald Boulton, vice chancellor of
student affairs, said the administra
tion was "helpless" in this situation.
"The laws we have in the state and
the country say that as a state
university, we are open to all legit
imate organizations to come onto our
grounds," Boulton said. "I deeply
respect what they're doing, but we
have to uphold the law."
Frederic Schroeder, dean of stu
dents, said the University should not
deprive other students of the oppor

"Instead of going with our hands
out, we need to work with them (the
alumni)," Poston said. "They're
concerned about us; they really care
Rierson said students need to
organize and lobby the N.C. General
Assembly to keep tuition low.
"The report that just came out
evaluating the University recom
mended that we hike tuition," Rier
son said. "I think that we need to
have a working relationship with the

Committee member Jones said the
committee is planning an incident of
civil disobedience for Feb. 25 if the
recruiters come to UNC.
"No one on this campus has ever
seen anything like the protest we're
planning," Jones said.
Sharon Foster, CIA spokeswo
man, said the number of students
interviewed is usually greater than the
number who are protesting. She also
said the CIA has the same right to

Creating a computer file to help
students locate scholarship and loan
opportunities is another way to assist
students with financial need, Rierson
Yelverton said he wants to make
sure students have a strong voice in
financial aid decisions at the state and
federal levels by creating an all
campus pollsite for students.
Yelverton also said he wants to
create more possibilities for aid on

program to make sure there are more
opportunities for financial aid and
also create more work-study jobs on

financial aid can get these jobs,"
recruit that students have to protest.
"We don't come to create a dis
turbance," Foster said. "Recruiting
has increased on some campuses due
to the attention protests have drawn."
Steve Sullivan, a committee
member who has lost 19 pounds since
he began fasting, said the protesters
had to think very seriously about
students' right to be interviewed by
"Rights for people should be life
affirming," Sullivan said. "I'm sorry.
Maybe I am infringing on their rights.
But their rights to be interviewed (on
campus) are less important than the
rights of those upon whom the CIA
Thompson also said she does not
think the CIA has the right to recruit.
Beasley said creating a program
that would allow undergraduate
students to work with UNC profes
sors on research projects would aid
students financially and also give
them practical experience.
UNC alumni could also be a vital
part of the financial aid program by
donating money for aid grants to
students, Beasley said.
"If people want to build a building
and put their name on it, why not
start some grants with their names
on it," Beasley said. "They know what
it was like to be here and go through
education and not find money."
Lewis said creating work-study
jobs is not the answer because many
"I don't deny that people have the
right to interview for jobs," she said.
"But I don't believe that any entity
that is violating human rights has a
right to recruit."
The National Lawyers' Guild is
sponsoring a lecture on Monday by
Dale McKinley, CIA Action Com
mittee member, about the students'
reasons for protesting, guild co
chairwoman Sybil Mann said.
Mann said guild members and law
students are split about the protest.
Some students believe the protesters
are right in their opposition to the
CIA visit, but most believe the CIA's
freedom of speech cannot be censored
as long as the organization's recruit
ing practices are not discriminatory.

student part-time employment service
by going door-to-door and informing
local businesses about it to help
students with financial need.
"We need to start working with the
community," Maynard said. "We
need to get out there and meet the
business people. They're not going to
come to us looking for students to
work for them."
