that UNC may need more funding

Michael Krusch, a physician's
assistant at Student Health Service,
said at least eight students were
treated for alcohol-related injuries
ranging from human bites to broken
bones. That number is significantly
higher than the figures for a normal

"We certainly had our share of
problems with overexposure to alco

Drew University President Paul
Hardin was confirmed as chancellor
of the University by a unanimous vote
of the UNC Board of Governors
Hardin, who was forced to resign
from the presidency of Southern
Methodist University in 1974 after he
blew the whistle on its athletic
program, will take office July 1 and
receive an annual salary of $1 12,450.
At a press conference, Hardin said
he did not expect to make major
changes at the University.
"UNC stands very tall, not only
among other state universities, but
also among leading research univer
sities public and independent
across the country so I think it
would be foolish to come in and think
in terms of radical innovation," he
said. But, he added, "If 1 don't change
something, it will be a surprise."
Although the UNC chancellor

Hardin resigned from Southern
Methodist University in 1974 amid
scandal in its athletic program. After
discovering that football players were
being paid $5 to $25 for good plays,
Hardin turned the athletic depart
ment in to the NCAA. He also
disciplined several coaches.
"They invited me to leave, and I
accepted the invitation," Hardin said.
"There is a requirement to be
constantly vigilant and alert to the
possibilities of abuse," he said. "Even

In 1952, he graduated Phi Beta

UNC's arts and sciences program
impressed Hardin. "I was struck," he
said, "by how strong the arts and
sciences are at this University,
because a number of other univer
sities around the country have let the
arts and sciences core erode. That has
not happened here."
He will try to strengthen the
professional schools, he said. "I come
out of a professional school back

Hardin defended affirmative
action. "I think affirmative action is
not a series of steps one goes through
to satisfy legal niceties," he said.

repaired again two weeks ago.
