No. 2 Heels
by Gene Upchurch
Assistant Sports Editor
RALEIGH What happened
Wednesday night in Reynolds Coliseum
here will be remembered and talked
about for years. That was the night that
unranked N.C. State upset and
embarassed favored North Carolina, the
No. 2-ranked basketball team, 75-73.
Carolina is now 12-2 overall (4-1 in the
conference) while State moves to 9-5 and
2-1 in the conference.
. It was a typical Carolina-State
basketball game. Even though Carolina
was the decided favorite going into the
game, nobody who has ever been
associated with Atlantic Coast
Conference basketball was confident that
it would be one team all the way. Both
teams were sky high and intense before
the 12,400 screaming, hysterical
Carolina led at halftime, 40-36, and
despite the Tar Heels famous "balanced"
attack, Phil Ford had 20 of UNCs points.
Carolina opened its lead to nine at 53-44
with 16 minutes to play, and the State
fans began wondering if this would be
another tough loss like so many they had
had this season. But Carolina center
Tommy LaGarde was able to pull down
only two rebounds the second half and
was held scoreless in the period. State
moved to within three points at 63-60
when UNC forward Walter Davis fouled
out with 10:45 left in the game.
Carolina was still in the game, but the
referees refused to call a foul on State,
and instead, Carolina's Mike O'Koren
was called out-of-bounds. State went
ahead for good with six minutes to go on
a drive by Clyde (the Glide) Austin that
put the Pack ahead, 66-65. State led by as
much as five late in the game before a
desperate effort by the Tar Heels to win
or drive the game into overtime failed.
Stewart's fight for tenure continues
David Stewart's effort to get his
contract renewed and tenure granted
him continues today as the Faculty
Hearings Committee meets for the third
straight day in closed session to hear
from Stewart and others involved in his
After Wednesday's session Stewart
said, "I don't know how it's going.
Everything that needs to be said is
getting said." He added that the hearing
has been "very open and very free."
Stewart, an assistant professor of
geology, said last week that he was going

major who has worked with Stewart on
several projects, and David E. Dunn, a
professor of geology who has been a
critic of Stewart since Stewart's
prediction in January 1976 of an

within a decade.
According to Stewart, Dunn gave

While he praised the feature and freelance
articles in the paper this year for providing
"lively and interesting copy," he said that
more attention must be given to graduate

the series on individual dormitories was a

sufficient news coverage."
Not only do the editorials have to be
improved, Porter said, but news coverage
also has to expand its scope and "reach into
every corner of the campus."
He added that too often interesting stories
are sacrificed by a staff writer in favor of an
easier, less exciting story.

easy to forget is that every student is forced
to pay for it. But when you're forced to pay

Hal, a UNC senior, has come to House
Undergraduate Library to finish last-minute
research for a term paper.
Right now he's using the rest room. Sitting
in a stall, Hal's attention is drawn to the
writing on the stall door.
"This urinal is saved Billy Graham." "A
man without a God is like a fish without a
bicycle." "Is Gregg Allman? Ask Cher."
Hal pulls a pencil out of his pocket and
contributes his philosophy on term papers in
a small space near the bottom of the door.
He chuckles to himself, flushes and heads for
the periodicals table.
Meanwhile, Cardue Clark pushes his
custodian's cart toward the men's rest room.
It's 1 1: 10 on a Sunday night, and Clark has
just about completed an eight-hour work
day. On Sundays, he cleans both Wilson and
House libraries by himself.
With steel grey eyes, Clark surveys the rest
room, which is scattered with paper towels,
toilet paper and discarded Daily- Tar Heels.
He pauses to read the graffiti on the stall
walls. Some of the graffiti is meant to be
funny, but Clark doesn't smile. Instead, he
reaches for a bottle of liquid cleaner and
scrubs the stall door.-
"I have to clean it off the best 1 can," he
says. "Some of it, the ink stuff, just won't
come off. I guess people just don't think that
somebody has to clean it off."
Ed Saunders, UNC maintenance
superintendant, says graffiti and other wall
defacements are more of a nuisance than
most students realize.

bit, they'd realize what a problem graffiti and
other damages are. They don't realize that

Changes may be enacted in admissions
policies, academic standards and curricula
throughout North Carolina's consolidated
university system as a result of a federal
judge's ruling Monday.
A spokesperson for the civil rights office
of the Department of Health, Education and
Welfare (HEW) Wednesday outlined five
provisions recommended by U.S. District
Court Judge John H. Pratt, who ordered
HEW to step up desegregation at UNC and
five other state university systems.
Lou Mathis, public information officer
for HEW's civil rights office, revealed that
Pratt verbally ordered HEW to include five
steps in its revamped guidelines for the six

standards designed to attract and retain

i predominately white institutions;
further desegregate faculties;
further desegregate university
governmental and administrative staffs, and

requirements so that progress in
desegregation can be better assessed.
"We will sit down with the plaintiff (the

was a petition signed by 138 persons,
most from Stewart's classes. The
petition stated that Stewart's case for
reinstatement should be contingent on
his qualifications as an instructor, and
.also as a researcher and a publisher.
The next step is for the committee to
decide if the case has merit. If so, the
geology department may present its side
of the case.
Stewart said Ingram told him that the
eleven full professors in the department,
the ones who judged Stewart, may be
called to give testimony.
That may take some time, Stewart
said, and will probably not conclude
until next week.
After the department has finished,
Stewart will be given an opportunity to

"We have building inspectors on campus,
and part of their job is to go around every so
often and check out the graffiti. Sometimes
people scratch words into the surface with
sharp objects, then we either have to let it
stay there or refinish the surface."
Jack Murfin, UNC housekeeping services
superintendant, says new building materials
might cut down on graffiti.
"In the newer buildings we've installed
marble stalls in the bathrooms. In others
we've refinished some walls with epoxy
paint. That's real hard to scratch and easy to

Bell receives approval
WASHINGTON (UPI) Griffin Bell, Jimmy Carter's most controversial
Cabinet nominee, was recommended for confirmation as attorney general
on a 10-3 vote Wednesday by the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The vote followed the final session of extensive hearings on the
appointment of Bell, the 58-year-old Atlanta lawyer and former U.S.
appeals court judge, which produced a sharp split between spokespersons
for black groups.
Informal approval of Bell put all of Carter's Cabinet appointees in line for
quick confirmation by the Senate after the Georgian is sworn in as president
Thursday and formally submits their nominations.
Earlier Wednesday, a poll of Senate Commerce Committee members
revealed approval of Juanita Kreps as commerce secretary and Rep. Brock
Adams, D-Wash., to be secretary of transportation.
The new Cabinet officers are to be sworn in at a ceremony in the East
Room of the White House at 2 p.m. EST Sunday.

days after its hearing concludes. If
Taylor decides against Stewart, Stewart
may also appeal to the UNC Board of
Trustees, and if that fails, to the UNC
Board of Governors.
Chancellor Taylor said Wednesday
that he has never overturned a decision
denying tenure to a faculty member
since he became chancellor in 1972.
Taylor pointed out that such an
opportunity must come to him through
proper University channels.
E. Maynard Adams, chairperson of
the faculty, said that to the best of his
knowledge a decision by the faculty not
to grant tenure has never been
overturned in his 29 years at the
tile floors and epoxy paint as much as
possible. Beginning this year, the UNC
maintenance department will begin
refinishing walls in some campus buildings
with epoxy paint.
Saunders said it is impossible to estimate
just how much it costs each year to repair
damages caused by graffiti.
"We've never kept record. Maybe wc
should keep track. We have eight men, four
for health sciences buildings and four for
academic buildings, who do general
maintenance. Part of their job is checking for
objectionable graffiti. If the graffiti is real
objectionable, we try to get rid of it right
away," Saunders said.
The maintenance department also repairs
damages done to the exterior of buildings by
"If we get a call about damages to the
exterior of a building, we take care of it
implemented at all levels."
The 1974 plan "did not offer real
possibilities for dismantling the dual system
of higher education," he added.
"Judge- Pratt has ruled that the
desegregation plans we approved (including
UNC's 1974 plan) are inadequate and have
not brought sufficient results," Mathis said.
Under the 1974 plan, a goal of 4.1 percent
black enrollment in UNC's predominately
white institutions was set for fall of 1975.
Enrollment for blacks, which had totaled 3.7
per cent in fall of 1973, increased to 5.2 per
cent in fall 1975.
UNC general administration officials were
clearly surprised by the ruling, and are
witholding comment until they receive a
copy of the decision. An administration
official said the written communication
probably won't be received until Friday.
Before the Judiciary Committee
acted, it heard last-minute arguments
against the Bell nomination from black
leaders, one of whom charged that as a
federal judge he supported the "least

Mathias said he has "shifted back and

repairing damage from sand blasting to
using strong solvents," Saunders said.
Saunders added that graffiti is a seasonal
problem, with the most graffiti being
reported in the spring.
Many universities have set aside graffiti
boards in rest rooms and student unions for
those who feel the urge to write graffiti. They
report significant reductions in the amount
of graffiti on clean surfaces as a result of the
Would such boards eliminate some of the
graffiti problem at UNC?
"It might," Saunders concedes. "But
personally I think the graffiti problem is less
at Carolina than at some other schools I've
visited. Some schools have full-time crews
just for repairing graffiti. We haven't
reached that point yet, but if we do, graffiti
boards might be a good idea."
