Profits, loans and practical expe
rience are three accomplishments the
Carolina Students Credit Union
(CSCU) can boast about after its first
month of operation.
. CSCU, which opened Jan. 11, is
showing a profit for the first quarter
of 1988, said vice president Andy
Taubman, a junior chemistry major
from Oklahoma City.
"We have $152,000 in assets, and
we will continue to show a profit,"
he said. "Now everything is good, and
because of the loans, everything will
be great very soon.'"
Taubman said the demand for
loans has been higher than the
demand for any other service. CSCU,
which began offering loans last week,
accepts loan applications on Mon
days and Tuesdays.
The credit union, located in Room
103 next to the auditorium of the
Student Union, offers two types of
loans a share-secured loan and a
With a share-secured loan, the
bank freezes the amount of the loan
in the borrower's share account or
share certificate, Taubman said.
A student can get a co-maker loan
by co-signing with a person of better
financial status, like a parent, who
will cover the loan if the student is
unable to pay.
"Most students can't get loans at
commercial banks," Taubman said.
"That's why this is such an
The loans are for a maximum of
two years. A student can get a co
maker loan for $250 to $2,500 and
a share-secured loan for an unlimited
amount. Taubman said the interest
rates change weekly, but once a
student signs a loan contract, the rate
"Getting a loan helps a student
build a good credit history," he said.
"At this age, (building credit) will save
you money further down the road
when you need money for cars and
homes . . . ."
Any CSCU member is eligible for
a loan, Credit Union membership
requires a $10 minimum deposit in
a share account, a $10 membership

Tar Heels rally past
feisty Virginia, 64-58
By LANGSTON WERTZ
An emotionally charged Virginia
squad bolted out to an 18-3 lead and
stayed in front most of the way
Sunday, but sixth-ranked North
Carolina scored 10 of the last 12
points over the final three minutes
to defeat the Cavaliers, 64-58.
Junior guard Jeff Lebo scored a
team-high 18 points, including four
three-pointers, and added eight
rebounds for the Tar Heels. Lebo's
17-foot jumper with 1:33 to play put
UNC, which trailed by 11 early in
the second half, ahead to stay at 58
56. The win enabled UNC to keep pace
with Duke in the ACC race, giving
the Tar Heels marks of 7-2 in the
conference and 18-3 overall. Virginia,
in losing its third game in a row, fell
to 12-12 overall and 44 in the ACC.
"We're very happy with the road
win over a good Virginia team," UNC
coach Dean Smith said. "I thought
they were fired up, and they did a
good job defensively."
After Lebo's shot put UNC up by
two, the Cavaliers' Mel Kennedy
. bricked the front end of a one-and-one
at the 1:05 mark, and Scott
Williams had a vicious two-handed
jam at the other end to make it a
four-point game. Lebo and Ranzino
Smith combined to make four free
throws in the final minute to preserve
"We were pleased with the effort
of our kids," Virginia coach Terry
Holland said. "They gave it all they
had, and we couldn't have asked for
anything more from them. We got

a little tired down the stretch. Of
course, the four fouls on Mel
Kennedy and Bill Batts didn't help
Virginia came out on fire as
Kennedy, John Johnson and Richard
Morgan all connected from three
point range to help the Cavs bolt out
to an early 15-point lead. Kennedy
had eight points in the game-opening
run, including two treys.
"We were just trying to keep our
concentration, and do the things that
we've always done," UNC forward
J.R. Reid said. "Our defense turned
the game around, because nobody
really shot well from the field."
Reid, who finished with 16 points,
had his share of problems shooting
the basketball Sunday, going just 3-of-14
on the afternoon, mirroring his
team's 40-percent performance. For
Reid, who normally shoots almost 67
percent from the field, it was his worst
shooting performance of the season.
The same hot perimeter shooting
that got UVa. out to its early lead
later turned cold. The Wahoos shot
38 percent from the field, including
7-of-19 from three-point land. In the
second half, Virginia made just seven
of 28 field-goal attempts, for 25
UNC, which had fallen behind 28
12 following a Morgan steal and lay
in, went on a 9-0 run to pull within
seven at 28-21, 4:21 before
"We stayed on 28 an awfully long
time, but when you're shooting from
the perimeter, you have stretches like
that," Holland said.

Beasley said the new communica

the cube on North Campus and serve
primarily the same purpose.
"There is no communication outlet
between students on South Campus

way to link the students together."

Lisa Blighton, another fasting
