weapons, President Sylvestre
Ntibantunganya found his message of
peace received with cheers, open hostility
or indifference depending on the ethnic
mix in each neighborhood he visited.
Even as the president spoke in one rela
tively calm area, Hutus and soldiers clashed
nearby, leaving three men dead and one
woman seriously injured.

Arkansas Sends Tar Heels to Hog Hell
12-Minute Field Goal-Less
Stretch Dooms UNC vs.
Razorbacks in Final Four
BY STEVE ROBBLEE
SEATTLE—Arkansas had used plenty
of luck throughout this season’s NCAA
Tournament, but it didn’t need much luck
in its 75-68 win over North Carolina Satur
day in the Final Four.

Arkansas put itself in good position by
turning up its defense in the second half,
and that was the difference in the game.

UNC would not make another field goal

3 Seniors Gone; Sophomores Undecided
SEATTLE The season wasn’t supposed to end for another
two days. Perhaps it was just some cruel April Fool’s joke.
Everyone on the UNC basketball squad expected to win Saturday

that shattered glass and that other cyl

95 season ended two days early. The
loss also marked an early exit for three
outstanding seniors and left a whirl-
wind of questions about the All-America sophomores.
So many story lines fell short of their appropriate endings when
Corliss Williamson knocked down that last layup to seal Arkan
sas’ 75-68 victory over the Tar Heels.

have dreamed we were wearing the Carolina blue, driving the

dream? In Landry’s case, Cinderella’s magical night came to an

Final Four Licensing Proceeds
To Help Fund UNC Scholarships
BY VICTOR D. HENDRICKSON
Unfortunately, the Tar Heels’ trip to
Seattle for the Final Four did not end with
a national championship, but the team’s
success in the tournament did boost UNC
memorabilia sales tremendously, benefit
ing University students with increased
funds for scholarships.
Sales of Tar Heel memorabilia such as
T-shirts, baseball caps and sweatshirts in
creased greatly after the men’s basketball
team advanced to the Final Four of the
NCAA tournament, said Biruta Nielsen,
contracts administrator for the University.
“All you had to do was walk down
Franklin Street last week and see all of the
Final Four memorabilia for sale,” Nielsen

Peaceful Wallowing on
Franklin Following Loss
Hundreds of rolls of toilet paper were conserved, countless
dollars destined to be spent on beer were saved, and thou
sands of Chapel Hill students were actually in bed by daylight
after the Tar Heels lost to Arkansas in Saturday’s Final Four
Many expected UNC crowds, whether the Tar Heels won
or lost, to take to the streets when the buzzer sounded.
Although Franklin Street was not the scene of a champion
ship celebration Saturday night, it was not a scene of mayhem
and chaos, either.
Overall, “there was a really good crowd, ” Ham’s manager
Kara Sharrand said.
Sharrand said that at the game’s conclusion the almost 300
people at Ham’s were quiet but not angry. “The crowd hung
around forawhile,about 45 minutes to anhour,and then they
went on their way,” she said. She added that aside from
renting some extra televisions, tables and chairs and schedul
ing additional waiters and cooks, Ham’s had taken no other
precautions and that it had had no problems.
The police were out in full force, yet under the circum
stances, Chapel Hillstudents remained ontheirbestbehavior.

UNC Task Force Tackles Women’s Issues
BY BETH GLENN
One year and one month after it was
first proposed, the Chancellor’s Task Force
on the Status ofWomen held its first meet
The committee’s charge from the chan
cellor consists of two parts: to inventory
and evaluate existing services for women
on campus and to suggest strategies for
improving the quality of those resources.
The task force was initially proposed to
study the most appropriate structure for
creating a women’s center on campus, but
first the group is investigating what re
sources already exist on campus.
“We’d rather think more broadly than a
chairwoman oftheFaculty Council. “Right
now, there’s no central place or group of
people who know what’sgoing on or what’s
missing and how we can do better. At the
moment when we know all those things,

Jerry Stackhouse, who hasn’t said what his plans are for next year, doesn't
get much help from Arkansas' Scotty Thurman (30) and Corliss Williamson.
Brown asked the committee to remain
open to all possibilities because in addition
to investigating the possibility of a women’s
center, the task force had the power to
suggest completely new ideas.
“Another possibility is a high-level ad

what’s going on for women on campus,”
