House Fails to Approve
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Political in

House failure to approve a constitutional
amendment limiting congressional terms.

Supporters said there would be votes on
three separate measures. One, a constitu
tional amendment requiring a two-thirds
majority, would set national limits of 12
years apiece in each chamber. Also in line
for consideration are two bills requiring
simple majorities—one that would autho
rize states to set limits and a second that
would fix 12-year limits in each chamber.

Stallings: Policy Ruling likely by June
BY NANCY FONTI
ASSISTANT UNIVERSITY EDITOR
The chairman of the UNC Board of
Governors nondiscrimination policy sub
committee said Thursday that a revised
policy would probably be considered by
the BOG in April or June.
“I really believe it will be considered by
June, but I don’t want to make a judgment
of whether it will be passed or not, ” Joseph
Stallings said. “I don’t want to speak for
other members of the board. ”
Stallings and BOG member Mark Bibbs

UNC Slams to Seattle
Dean Smith Returns to Site of '52 Title;
Injuries May Hinder Team in Final Four
Dean Smith’s last trip to Seattle for a Final Four was in 1952,
when he played for the national champion Kansas Jayhawks. He
has claimed for many years to have that game on film, and he says
it’s the only proof he has that he contributed 29 seconds to that
According to the now-famous (at least among local media)
legend, Kansas head coach Roy Williams has taken steps to add
Smith’s name to the final box score, which left out the Emporia,
Kan., native originally.
Now that officialhislory has been altered, Smith gets to contrib
ute once again to Seattle’s Final Four lore. This time the site is the
Kingdome, not the Edmundson Pavilion, and his contributions
definitely will be in the spotlight this time around.
All season, critics have charged that UNC’s squad is not deep
enough, and a great starting five is no longer good enough.
However, 28 wins and five setbacks later, Smith is ready to once
again prove the critics wrong in college basketball’s final week

“It is important to have an enlightened
and informed consensus rather than to
rush to vote,” Stallings said in January.
But the lack of attendance Thursday
was perhaps an indication of the reluc
tance on the part of some BOG members to
pass the new policy.
Former Gov. Jim Martin has been the
most outspoken critic ofthe policy. He said
in January that he thought the policy was
unnecessary and that the term “sexual ori
entation” was unclear.
The revised policy would expand the
current policy to forbid discrimination
based upon age, handicap and sexual ori

With all the team’s improvements, both among
the starting five and the bench, the only thing that
might stand in the way of Smith’s third title is not
having able bodies to coach. Since the NCAA Tour

more like a scene out of M*A*S*H, with ice packs
