ATLANTA Like General Sher
man's 1865 march, the sixth-ranked
North Carolina Tar Heels swept into
town Wednesday night and burned
down No. 13 Georgia Tech, 97-80, to
clinch the Atlantic Coast Conference
The win, perhaps UNC's strongest
in a topsy-turvy season, thrust the Tar
Heels,' record to 22-4 overall, 1 1-2 in
the ACC. Tech fell to 21-7, 8-5.
"I was afraid the bubble was going
to burst, and it certainly did," said
Tech coach Bobby Cremins. "North
Carolina's a great team. J.R. (Reid)
was something. They're tough, and
they had to be."
Reid finished with 24 points and
six rebounds. Sixteen of his points
came after the intermission. For the

Representative Neil Riemann
(Dist. 12) was elected speaker of the
70th Student Congress Wednesday
Riemann outlined several goals he
has set for his term as speaker.
"I want to emphasize profession
alism in the congress," he said. "If
we are more professional, our deci
sions will be respected more by
faculty and administrators, who are
the people we especially want to
respect our decisions."

New student body president outtBines goals for term

Newly elected Student Body Pres

official day in office talking with

for his term.
"Today (Wednesday) has been very
hectic, but very exciting," said
Martin, who was sworn in as student
body president on Tuesday.

The fundamentalist movement,
fueled by the Rev. Pat Robertson and
televangelist Jerry Falwell, is a
dangerous mindset that will pervade
American society unless stopped, said
the co-founders of Fundamentalists
Anonymous Wednesday night in a
speech in Hamilton Hall.
"As we move toward the 21st
century, American society is in real
danger of becoming more and more
fundamentalist," said Richard Yao,
who gave up a career as a Wall Street
lawyer to form the organization.
Yao's speech was called "When
Religion Becomes a Prison."
An educational and support group
for people who have become too
wrapped up in the rigid fundamen
talist belief in taking the Bible
literally, Fundamentalists Anony
mous was founded in 1985 and is now
a national organization of about
50,000 former fundamentalists and
Pentecostals, he said.
A second purpose of the group is
to inform Americans of the growing
constructionist movement, said co
founder James Luce. Robertson and

The Yellow Jackets came into the
matchup on a sharp buzz, having won
seven straight since a 78-65 thrashing
at Duke on Feb. 3. Tech's success in
that stretch was reliant upon its
pushing the ball upcourt with its
strong starting five. But with UNC
countering that by getting back on
defense and using a little transition
game of its own, Tech big men Ferrell
and Tom Hammonds got into foul
Thanks in part to that fact, UNC
stretched a 67-61 lead with 10:02 left
to an 80-63 bulge at the 6:46 mark.
Repeated bricks by Dennis Scott,
Ferrell and Craig Neal, who finished
with 12 assists, helped facilitate North
Carolina's 13-2 run.
Jeff Lebo started the Tar Heel run
with a lay-up. Reid then drove down
the lane for a slam over a foul-
"I want the congress to continue
to stand up for tolerance and open
mindedness, to be fair and to listen
to everybody," he said.
Riemann served as Student Con
gress Finance Committee chairman
of the 69th congress.
Jurgen Buchenau (Dist. 4) was
elected speaker pro tempore.
Buchenau said his experiences as
a graduate student living in Car
michael Residence Hall will make
him aware of undergraduate concerns
as well as graduate issues.
"I want to lend my ear to different
concerns and work on breaking down
factional barriers," he said.
As a student in West Germany,
Buchenau said he gained experience
to make applications available to fill
positions on the Chancellor's Com
mittees, which are made up of faculty
members, administrators and stu
dents who address campus issues.
"In past years, the committees
haven't been decided until the middle
of the summer," Martin said. "We are
putting a big emphasis on making the
decisions before the students go home
for summer break.

"Their basic goal is to reconstruct
American society along the lines of
the Old Testament, along the lines
of the New Testament," Yao said.
"Their basic premise is that we have
a secular humanist government that
has untied God and therefore should
be done away with."
Robertson, who "probably has the
most extensive ties to the
constructionist movement," Yao
said, has hosted reconstructionists on
his "700 Club" television show and
has written radical articles for the
"Writing for this publication is
about as reputable as writing for the
Klan," Yao said.
Robertson also maintains many
avowed reconstructionist professors
at his Christian Broadcast Network
college, including the dean of the law
school, Yao said, and Robertson has
asked major leaders of the movement
for advice on how to use his network
to further his political career.
Robertson has made no efforts to
distance himself from the movement,
