Volume No. 84, Issue No. 99 Red-hot UNC bulls by USF in 100-65 win by Grant Vosburgn Sports Editor When Phil Ford casually lofts a set shot from 25 feet out, on a fast break even, with still over 14 minutes left in a game no less, well, it's a tell-tale sign. And when that same bomb, launched from somewhere near South Campus, swishes the net cleanly, well, then the secret's over. Actually, there was little about UNCs 35 point win over the visiting Brahman Bulls from South Florida that was in doubt Wednesday night, except whether the 11th ranked Tar Heels would hit that golden century mark on the scoreboard. And that, too, was decided when a sprawling Randy Wiel dished off a loose ball to teammate Ged Doughton who banked in a two-footer with only six seconds left, making the final score 100-65. The majority of the damage was done by. the Heels' blistering fast break and hounding defense. The pressure tactics applied by UNCs starting five was so effective, in fact, that official scorekeepers probably thought they were going to get the night off. It was not until five minutes into the game that South Florida could score. Finally, USFs 6-foot-1 1 Steve Stanford hit a turn-around jamper from the side for the first two points. Thanks to Stanford, the Bulls managed to keep scoring and turned a J2-0 em harassment into a 25-1& battle. Stanford, who had all the grace of a World War II German tank, bulled his way inside and out to emerge with some rather impressive statistics. He gunned 1 1 times from the floor, hitting on target nine of those times. He also grabbed 10 rebounds and rejected five Tar Heel shots. "1 think they (freshmen centers Rich Yonakor and Jeff Wolf, who split time due to the injuries to Tommy LaGardeand Steve Krafcisin) both were a little shell-shocked on defense," UNC Head Coach Dean Smith said of the pair's performance against Stanford. "It takes two of them to make up for one LaGarde." (Smith added that there is a possibility that Krafcisin will play against Virginia Sunday, while LaGarde , is doubtful.) However, Smith countered the single-man attack, launching a blitzkrieg-like raid on USF with 13 different players before halftime. The Tar Heels' numerous substitutions apparently wore down the listless Brahman Bulls late in the first half. With eight minutes left before intermission, Carolina began a three-minute spurt, out-scoring the visitors 15-2. The half ended with UNC holding a solid 46-29 lead. After halftime ceremonies, during which time retiring Carolina coaches Marvin Allen (soccer) and Walter. Rabb (baseball) were honored, the Tar Heels picked up where they left off, running the Bulls ragged with a potent race-horse fast break" and dead-eye shooting that resulted in a 76.9 second-half field goal percentage. The Heels, now 18-4 on the year, finished the game with a 67.8 mark. Once again, Walter Davis led all Tar Heel scorers with 20 points, including six of eight from the line. The supporting cast included Ford with 14 points, John Kuester with 13, reserve guard Tom Zaliagiris with 12 and freshman forward Mike 0'K.oren with 10.

East Carolina University will become the first North Carolina school to open its doors to the deaf with a program for baccalaureate degrees. Three deaf students are enrolled at UNC-G, but without a specialized program, and Central Piedmont Community College at Charlotte allows deaf students to earn two-year degrees. Only 42 U.S. schools offer post secondary education for the deaf. Of these, only two are solely for deaf students. "Deaf students ought to have the same alternatives for college that hearing students have, said Ranee H enderson, director of the N.C. Schools for the Deaf. If the program is implemented, ECU will admit seven or eight graduates from the N.C. Schools for the Deaf. Instruction will be through interpreters, who will translate lectures into sign language.

Try digging in Wilson Library by Don Ward DTH Contributor Alex Haley, author of Roots, has done what many of us, white and black, wish we could do for ourselves-.find out who our ancestors were and how they faced life. ' If you want to learn about them but don't know quite where to begin, a good starting place is in the Wilson Library. If you are from North Carolina, the North Carolina Collection will prove helpful, and for all Southerners the Southern Historical Collection has rich resources. "We have all North Carolina census records in the North Carolina Collection," said its curator, H. G. Jones. Most are on microfilm and some are indexed in book form. "You're looking for names and without them your job is much harder," Jones said. "Normal genealogical sources are often unfruitful for black offer specialized approved, it is uncertain whether they will come from the consolidated University's budget or ECU's budget. , "We are extremely hopeful. The program has such merit as to justify its existence, and we hope the General Assembly will perceive it as such," Henderson said. He said he hoped the decision would be made soon. "This is the time of the year high school -students start making decisions. I'm afraid they w ill have made, the decision to go elsewhere by the time the funds come through." The $40,000 will be used, to hire interpreters and a program director. Staff hiring will culminate a process that began four years ago when a committee from the N.C. Schools for the Deaf approached officials at -the Department of Human Resources about post-secondary education for deaf students. - Committee chairperson James M. Dixon, an eight-year member of the board of directors for the N.C. Schools for the Deaf, said state officials were receptive to the committee's ideas.

Prior to freedom, blacks were not usually identified by last name," he said. That might make it seem impossible to compile a family tree for blacks. It's possible, but it will take patient methodical research. Be sure 'to get as much information about names and places your ancestors lived before starting your library research. Ask the oldest members of your family about their early memories. This not only means those closest to you, but distant cousins, too. Some perhaps who are not considered in the family circle nevertheless share great grandparents with you. This is where you must begin. If you know the name and location of a certain ancestor in 1880, the census will tell you the age. sex. color (including mulatto), state or country of birth and that person's parents' state or country of birth. The 1870 census was the first to include the name of every former slave. was chosen as the model for t he ECU program. . "North Carolina has a fine preschool program for the deaf, a fine grade school program and a fine high school program. But we weren't doing anything for after high school," Dixon said. Residents challenge voting by Laura Seism Staff Writer HILLSBOROUGH The legality of college students registering to vote in the county where they attend school was challenged at a meeting , of the Orange County Commissioners Tuesday. , "We're not trying to slow down or prohibit students from voting," said Lucius Cheshire, chairperson of the Orange Committee, a group of politically active Orange County residents. "We want them to vote, but where the law requires them to vote. "We will ask the state Board of Elections to require the Orange County Board of Elections to purge our registration books of all students who have not established their residence in accordance with the law," Cheshire said. If the state board refuses to act, Cheshire said the committee would consider a lawsuit against the state elections board. in. light voter turnout " ' . - ' , by Toni Gilbert and Karen Millers Staff Writers Bill Moss defeated Mark Miller in the runoff election Wednesday, winning 53 per cent of the vote in the race for student body president. Of the 3,965 votes cast. Moss received 2,105 votes and Miller, 1,836. Miller led over Moss by 449 votes in the elections last week. David Royle was the easy victor in the race for Carolina Athletic Association president, earning 2,644 votes to Gary Mason's 932. Moss said he was very surprised he won "I didn't have any idea until 1 walked in, and the results were up," he said. "1 think I'll comprehend all this next week." Moss praised his opponent, saying Miller had a solid campaign organization. "1 thought Mark was a very strong candidate, a very strong person. I have a lot of respect for Mark," he said. He attributed a great deal of the win to his campaign workers, especially his cocampaign managers Mark Paine and Greg Underwood. ' "I'm very proud of the people who worked for me," Moss said. "I'm really glad to win for their sake. They deserved a good candidate; I'm not sure 1 was that person." He added that his election was a "very humbling experience." ' Moss also said endorsements he received affected the outcome. "They were shots in the arm. They added credibility to our campaign." The Association for Women Students, the Black Student Movement, the Graduate and Professional Students Federation and Tal Lassiter endorsed Moss. Lassiter lost the runoff bid to Moss by 19 votes in the election Feb. 9. Miller received the endorsement of the Daily Tar Heel.

Supreme Court decision in which the court held that if a student lived in a town only as a student, intending to leave upon graduation, he did not establish a legal domicile there. The court decision stated that there is a presumption that a college student is a resident of the town where his parents live, although he may establish a new domicile. The case cited by Cheshire involved a Meredith College student fromTarboro who registered to vote in Wake County. A lower court ruled that she could register there, and the N.C. Supreme Court upheld the decision. There are differences between residence and domicile, the court decision stated. Criteria for establishing legal domicile were listed, but the court noted that none were conclusive. The decision also stated that the lower court could have ruled either way in the case of the Meredith student. 4 If IF 4' plantations." she said.

The Country Club precinct, which stretches from the health sciences complex to the General Administration Building, includes several dormitories.

Carter says living together is a tax break WASHINGTON (UPI) -President Carter acknowledged Wednesday that persons "living in sin" get a tax break. He also told Agriculture Department employees he had discovered the advantage for "sinners" was "further exagerated" by his administration's economic stimulus proposal under which the standard deduction was set at $2,000 for couples and $2,400 for single persons. So Carter said he has amended his proposal to set the deduction at $2,100 or $2,200 for single persons and $3,000 for couples.
