"" u e pay the same way we did last week,
we're going to get run right out of Kenan
Stadium" Coach Bill Dooley.
Last week it was Maryland; this week it is
Missouri, and it could get a lot darker before the
sunrise for the Tar Heels, as they face one of the
top teams in the country at 1:30 this afternoon in
the almost-friendly confines of Kenan.
A w eek ago, Maryland was the team that came
slouching into toSri to place its claim on the
ACC championship race; when the Terrapins
left, they took a 23 3 win with them.
Missouri comes into town today with a 2 0
won-loss record so far this season. In their season
opener they downed Southeastern Conference
opponent Mississippi, 17 0, then last week
were so kind as to host the University of Virginia,
but not so nice as to let them win, beating them
Now the Tigers have set their sights on the Tar
Heels who must try to pull themselves back
together after the loss to Maryland.
Carolina is already off to a bad start as Nick
Vidnovic, injured in the Maryland game, is out
of the lineup indefinitely.
Earlier in the week it had been hoped that
Vidnovic Would be able to play in the Missouri
game, but further examination of the injury
showed he had sustained a severe blow to the
thoracic vertebra and would not be able to take
the field.
The end result of this is more confusion than
Pressure now falls on the form of Chris Kupec,
the 6 4", 199-pound junior from Syosset, New
York, who will start today at the quarterback
spot for Carolina.
It's Kupec's first starting role for the North
Carolina varsity and how he plays this afternoon
will more than likely decide the outcome of the
Kupec's forte is the pass; Missouri's weakest
link is the defensive backfield.
The Tigers run a 5-2-3 monster, or Oklahoma
style defense; five linemen, two linebackers and
three backs plus a "monster man" who roams
about the defense looking for little gaps in the
Missouri, with a typical flair for originality,
calls him a "Tiger back."
Whatever you call him, he's still Steve Yount,
a 6 0", 185-pound junior.
Up on the line there are tackles Dennis
Vanarsdall and Mark Johnson, plus ends Steve
Schreiber and Bob McRoberts. Key of the
defensive line is middle guard Frank Caldwell, a
veteran of the team that upset Notre Dame last
Strong linebacker is played by Scott Pickens
who many observers feel to be one of the best in
the Big Eight Conference.
Lynn Evans is the second of the two
linebackers; he had an outstanding sophomore
season last year; as the number two tackier for
the team, he had 109 takedowns.
Best of the defensive secondary is John
Mosley, a senior co-captain who had five
interceptions last year.
From there, it's all downhill for the Tigers in
the secondary. Left cornerback Kenny
Downing still hadn't been awarded a number
when the press booklet was published. Safety
Tony Gillick was a second string quarterback
before being switched to the defensive backfield
and still lacks experience as a defensive player.
It's been the opinion of many Tar Heel fans
that Carolina should start throwing the ball
more now that Kupec is the starter against a team
the calibre of Missouri.
One reporter even observed the best thing that
could happen to Carolina might be "if they fell
behind" so they'd have to pass.
The secondary does indeed seem to be the
weakest part of the Tigers' structure, but it is
doubtful whether Dooley will elect to change his
game plan.
There is little doubt that Missouri will field a
strong offense against Carolina.
Like Carolina, the Tigers use an I formation,
variable offense.
Last year, Missouri ran the wishbone attack
with a certain amount of effectiveness, but has
now turned to the power "I" for more versatility.
Reason for the change might be the new
throwing accuracy of senior quarterback John
Cherry. At this same time last year. Cherry had
already been intercepted five times, while now he
only has been burned once this season. His
previous completion percentage of 28 percent is
now up to 56 percent.
Along with Cherry in the backfield are
fullback Ray Bybee, tailback Tommy Rcamon
and slotback Bill Zeigler.
Scott Anderson is the center for Missouri and
is the mainstay of the offensive line. Don Muse is
the tight end and anchors the blocking for the left
side of the line.
Tackles Jim Schnietz and Kelley Curbow plus
guards Chris Kirley and Don Buck round out the
rest of the interior line.
Jim Sharpe, split end for the Tigers, led the
team in average completion statistics with 23.1
yards a catch.
Greg Hill will do the place kicking for the
Tigers while the punting is handled by Jim
Once again, the key to Carolina's success will
be the offensive and defensive lines, both of
which took a beating in last week's loss to
The offensive backfield should be strong as
usual, perhaps even more so if the Missouri
defense keys on Kupec and his passing ability.
Carolina's secondary should be as sound as
ever, especially today if the Tigers stick to their
ground game as anticipated.

Prospectuses describing the sale of UNCs
four utilities were approved Thursday
morning after several revisions were
reviewed by State Utilities Study
Commission members (the Church
The action had been delayed from Sept. 13
to give commission members more time to
study the prospectuses. UNC is selling its
water, electricity, telephone and sewage
utilities, but the sale must be approved by the
Church Commission.
The prospectuses outline the condition of
sale for the UNC utilities and were prepared
by the American Appraisal Company. John
Temple, UNC assistant vice-chancellor for
bidding, had made minor changes in the four
prospecutses since the last meeting.
Recommendations by board members
were accepted during the two-week interval.
Commission members Henry Horncy and
Thomas Eller, a Charlotte attorney, sent in
recommendations. Several of Eller's
comments were incorporated into the
prospectuses at the meeting and approved by
the Commission included:
A deduction was made from a five per cent
deposit to a three percent bid bond, with
interest to accrue to the bidder's account in
the event his bid is rejected.
An agreement passed to not bind
prospective water utility bidders to the Cane
Creek reservoir project. The University had
earlier required bidders to complete this
project because $50,000 has already been
invested in the project and no other project
seemed feasible.

With the filing deadline for the Nov. 6
election only one week away, three more
candidates have announced that they are
entering the race for a city post.
Alderwoman Shirley Marshall filed early
this week for re-election to the Chapel Hill

Approximately 40 tons of newsprint enter Chapel
Hill each week, ranging from the 75,000 Daily Tar
Heels, to the various shoppers' guides, city
newspapers and hometown papers circulating in the
Most of this scrap paper finds its way straight to the
Chapel Hill dump, creating 220 cubic yards of landfill
every week.
Approximately 50 tons of glass are sold in Chapel
Hill and Carrboro each week, consisting of the no
deposit-no return beer and wine bottles.
Nine-tenths of that amount is deposited in the
landfill, consuming 67 cubic yards of space weekly.
These statistics reveal the extent of the solid waste
problem Chapel Hill faces each week.
In an effort to respond to the growing ecological
awareness among townspeople and students, the Joint
Action Council for Recycling and the Mayor's Task
Force on Recycling began a community wide program
in the fall of 1971 to promote the reuse of scrap paper
and glass. Two years later, the program has achieved
limited success.
Originally organized by Mary Turnbull in the spring
of 1971 as a citizens' action group, the council began an
experimental program of newspaper and glass reuse
between November 1971 and January 1972. Turnbull,
Chapel Hill citizen, is still active in recycling projects.
The Mayor's Task Force on Recycling, a
governmental committee organized at the request of
Alderwoman Alice Welsh, was an investigatory group
designed to explore the ways that other communities
have modified their solid wast programs to
accomodate an increasing trash problem.
Currently under the direction of City Hall, five
newsprint depots are yielding $12.00 for every ton of
flattened, untied, dry paper. City sanitation employees
deliver the collected paper to Paper Stock Dealers of
Raleigh, where it is shredded and bailed for shipment
to processors.
The five depots are located at the Hamilton Road
Fire Station spposite Glen Lennox, Elliott Road Fire
Station at East Franklin St., Carrboro Town Hill,
Chapel Hill Municipal Building, and behind the
Wilson Graduate Library.
Local Boy Scouts are maintaining the scrap glass
portion of the recycling effort, selling only green and
clear glass to the Laurens Glass Company for $15 per
ton. The only location for this activity is the Public
Works Department garage on Plant Road.
There is one newspaper bin located on campus for
the use of UNC students. Originally located in the Bell
Tower parking lot, the depot was removed for about a
year and later replaced at its present location beside the
Wilson Library loading docks.
Marcia Tuttle, director of the periodicals and serials
division of Wilson Library said that library employees
conducted the project on their own during the bin's
absence, making weekly trips to distant newsprint
depots with the library's scrap newspapers.
Wilson Library receives 46 American daily and
Sunday newspapers and 35 foreign language papers,
many of which are contributed to the recycling effort
after use and microfilming. Under present library
policy, the Undergraduate Library also sends its
approximately 12 daily newspapers to the scrap bin.
In contrast, the UNC School of Jurnalism sends all
of its newspapers to the landfill. A recipient of 32 daily
and weekly community newspapers, as well as 50
complimentary tabloids, the School of Journalism
participated in the recycling program last year, but
withdrew when storage and transportation of the scrap
paper became too much of a problem.
"The town would be very interested in placing
containers anywhere the University designates. We
would be very happy to put more out," stated Levine.

Rancer said he believes his experience in
"practical problem solving will be useful
and that his point of view will be valuable to
the board.
Ranccr expressed an interest in control of
future growth in Chapel Hill.
Mrs. Marie Wicker of 1024 Highland
Woods has filed for a two-year term on the
Chapel Hill-Carrboro Board of Education.
Candidates for school boards are required
by House Bill 521 to specify whether they are
seeking a full six-year term or want to finish
an unexpired term created by a vacancy.
Dr. Marvin Silver resigned from the board
in July, leaving two years of his term
unexpired. Wicker is the only candidate to
file for the unexpired term. Edwin Caldwell,
appointed to the board two years ago. has
announced that he will run for a. six-year
term and Dr. Norman Weatherly has filed
for re-election to a six-year term.
The Oct. 8 filing deadline is also the voter
registration deadline for city elections.

a commitment to increase UNCs water
supply, hich in not sufficient in its present
form, was included in Eller's amendment.
Chapel Hill residents have been paying
higher rates since August 1 970 to prepare for
the expanded water system. The money
originally held in trust for this use will be
released only with the approval of the UNC
Board of Trustees.
Chancellor Taylor and several
Commission members were surprised to
l;arn from County Commissioner Bill Ray
and Mayor Howard Lee that plans are
underway for a proposed county reservoir in
central Orange County.
Another recommendation to accept bids
only in a lump sum was defeated by the
Commission. Prospective bidders may bid
on all or any part of the utilities, but the
public corporation can withdraw all its bids
if it cannot buy all of the utilities.
The Commission allowed the University
to keep its Cameron Street substation. Eller
charged that the decision would favor Duke
Power Co., which already supplies wholesale
electricity to the University and owns a truck
line to the substation.
Temple said Duke Power w ill be treated as
any other bidder. He added that billing and

VlENNA(UPI)-Two Arabs armed with
grenades and submachine guns seized the
Moscow-to-Vienna "Chopin Express" as it
sped through minefields near the Czech
border today. The two seized four hostages
including three Jews emigrating to Israel
and drove to Vienna's international
airport where they demanded safe conduct
out of the country.
The guerrillas also shot a Czech border
guard. First reports said the guard was

plenty of pills to keep us awake. Don't expect
that e will give up because of fatigue."
In addition to the three Soviet Jews, the
terrorists held an Austrian border official.
