CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va A
four-point play by UNC forward Mike
O'Koren with 19:22 left in Sunday's
game with Virginia might have
convinced even the most faithful
basketball fans to switch channels from
the NBC broadcast to an afternoon
matinee. The Tar Heels held a
convincing 18-point lead over the
This, however, was a typical Atlantic
Coast Conference basketball game. For
that reason, no doubt, many viewers
stayed tuned. And for those who
switched, it was a poor decision.
The 1 8-point lead slowly disappeared,
as the Wahoos patiently worked their
offense and hit the outside shot.
Suddenly Carolina Coach Dean Smith
realized the four corners would be
needed for the win. Yet even that was
almost not enough, as the Heels slipped
out of rocking U niversity Hall with a 66
It took eight O'Koren points in the
final six minutes to push llth-ranked
UNC past the determined Cavaliers.
The Tar Heels were up 57-42 with 9;53
remaining when Virginia rallied for
eight straight points. With 7:33 left,
Carolina went to its spread offense.
Virginia continued its assault oh the
Tar Heel lead, pulling within four points
with two minutes left. The Tar Heels'
Walter Davis missed the first shot of a
one-and-one with 35 seconds left, but
Virginia could not take advantage of the
miscue. With 10 seconds left, Davis was
again fouled and this time missed two
free throws: This time, however, the
Cavaliers' Mike Owens raced down the
court and hit a 15-footer to make the
score 66-64. Virginia called a time-out in
hopes of setting up a defensive play, but
Carolina ran out the final three seconds
to preserve the win.
O'Koren led all scorers with 23 points,
18 of them coming in the second half.
The New Jersey freshman was quick to
give all the credit to Virginia for the
Cavs' second-half comeback.
"Their great offense did it," he said.
"It wasn't our fault. They just didn't
The Tar Heels' defensive
aggressiveness lessened, however, when
Davis picked up his fourth foul with

Regulations irk Friday
College presidents talk with Carter
By TONY GUNN
Staff Writer .
President Jimmy Carter asked UNC President William C.
Friday and nine other university officials from across the
nation Saturday for help in reforming federal education
guidelines and solving the nation's problems.
The President promised the officials aid in getting
assistance from the Department of Health, Education and
Friday said on Sunday that the hour-long meeting in
Washington dealt with five issues: -
The amount of paperwork and the regulatory
requirements imposed on universities by federal agencies.
The . structure of higher education in Carter's
Graduate study and research, expecially fellowships,
libraries, and computer capacities.
The Carter administration's relation to science.
Historically black institutions and their future.
Friday said that Carter believed that colleges and
universities had competent people in their staffs who could
help the President and his staff solve national problems.
"He asked us to let him know by the end of March the
regulatory regulations we though were in excess," Friday said.
"He would do something about it, he said."
One such regulation, Friday said, concerned the numerous
progress reports the UNC General Administration is required
to make. Friday cited the state's plan to further eliminate
racial duality within the University system as one example."
"That should not have to be repeated," he said. "Once it's
done, it's done."
Friday said that the Inter-Agency Task Force on Paper
Work has completed a study examining ways to eliminate
duplicative and unnecessary paperwork in the government
Friday termed the meeting on Saturday constructive. "It
was proof that education has a friend in the presidency."
Also discussed was the possibility of making education a
separate cabinet office. No specific proposals on this were
made by the group, Friday said, adding that the work behind
the decision would be done within the Carter administration.
Friday arranged the session, the first of its kind in more
than a decade, which met in the White House Cabinet Room
at the request of presidential aide Stuart Eisenstat,. a UNC
graduate. Carter asked Friday, as chairperson, to keep the
In addition to Friday, other presidents attending the
meeting Saturday included Kingman Brewster Jr. of Yale
University, David Saxon of the University of California
system, Norman Francis of Xavier University, Harry Philpott
of Auburn University, Robben Fleming of the University, of
Michigan. Barbara Newell of Wellesley College, John Marvel
of Adams State College in Colorado and Robert Lahti of

March 10, planned to retire after this
semester. She had worked as Scott
College residence director since 1968.
Several housing department staff
members tried to telephone Vincent
Sunday morning, but got no response.,
They became alarmed because they
knew she should be in her apartment, so
they called the rescue squad, said
Russell Simpson, Scott College
assistant residence director.
When rescue squad members found
Vincent she was not breathing. They put
her on a respirator and took her to the
hospital, where doctors tried
unsuccessfully to revive her heart.
Simpson said Vincent had apparently
had the flu for the past week and one
half. "She was a teacher in every sense of
the word," Dean of Student Affairs
Donald Boulton said. "Whatever she
did, she did it with love. If you did
something she didn't like, she would say
so; but her criticism was given because
she was honestly concerned about you,
not just for now, but in the long term,"
Allen, Reep, Morrison residence
director, described Vincent as a feisty
lady. "She always had the good of the
students at heart. She was always on

politically active Democrats would seek to unseat Commissioners Richard
Whitted and Donald Willhoit oh the grounds that the students who voted in

The Faculty Council defeated a
proposal friday that would have
supported negotiations for a full-service
bus system by a 22-16 vote.
The resolution, introduced by
Population Center Director Thomas L.
Hall, proposed that the council:
Support the chancellor's efforts to
promote a full-service bus system for
Have a continuing opportunity
during the development phase of the bus
system to make its views known
regarding the University's plans and
policies affecting that system.
Ask University and town officials
to move promptly to assure support for
the continuation and improvement of
the bus system during the coming year.
The proposal also cited '10 areas of
concern. Among the concerns, listed
were a decrease in bus pass prices, a
sliding scale for on-campus parking, a
three-year halt of construction,
expansion of parking decks and parking
'lots and extended bus service to
Hail, three other faculty members and
UNC Student Transportation Director
Paul Arne wrote the proposal.
Arne made a short presentation and
distributed a nine-page report on the
proposal before the final vote.
Some faculty members expressed the
opinion that the council was not the
proper group to recommend political
action on the bus system.
Roger W. Waud, an economics
professor, expressed disapproval at any
attempt to support the bus system. "We
are subsidising sink holes down which
we're pouring fuel oil," he said.
He suggested that the University raise
parking permit prices to the point where
few students and faculty members
would be able to afford them.
Students would then be willing to pay
bus fares that would support a bus
system without any Financial help from
Richard Cramer f the sociology
department said closing down the
campus would also relieve the
congestion problem, but the University
must find a feasible solution.
Student representative Arne said he
was confused as to why the faculty did
not want to pass a resolution which
asked the University to look closely at
the bus system.
"Half of what 1 wanted to do at the
meeting got done. They've got a copy of
the transportation report. 1 think they
are more educated on the matter now,"
Thomas Holland, chairperson of the
Orange County Democratic Party, said
the Orange Committee wants to prevent
the students from voting so the county
will vote more conservatively.
"Cheshire wants to prevent the
students from voting against
Republican (U.S. Sen.) Jesse Helms in
1978," Holland said.
Cheshire denied Holland's charge.
Cheshire told the Orange County
Commissioners last week that students
should not be allowed to register to vote
until they have shown proof of their
intent to reside in the county after
Cheshire cited a 1972 N.C. 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 legal
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
"We feel the local board of elections
has not been upholding the law as
interpreted by., the supreme court,"
Cheshire said. -------
Cheshire made his report to the
county commissioners, who passed a
resolution endorsing the state elections
laws. The resolution did not give any
interpretation of the laws.
Holland said the commissioners do
not have any authority over the.
elections board and he will not. make
any changes recommended by the
Orange Committee unless ordered to do
so by the state board of elections.
Gerry Cohen, Democratic Party
voter registration chairperson, said only
10 per cent of the UNC student body is
registered in Orange County, and most
. of these are maried graduate students
who have settled in the county and own
Cohen questioned the Orange
Committee's emphasis on the students
while ignoring the more-conservative
UNC faculty. .
"Many faculty members are here only
three or four years, less time than some
students," Cohen said.
"But they (the Orange Committee)
are not running around challenging
Cohen charged the Orange
Committee with trying to alter the
makeup of county government by
taking the vote away from the students.
"Conservative leaders ran the county
government until 1974," Cohen said. "In
1974 and 1976 the students helped elect
a more liberal board of commissioners.
The Orange Committee is trying to
regain control for the conservatives by
getting rid of the student vote."
"If a student intends to live in Chapel
H ill, he should be allowed to vote here,"
Awards to recog n ize
Ballots for student and faculty nominations for eight undergraduate teaching
awards are now available in the Y-Coiirt, undergraduate library, Carolina
Union, Chase Cafeteria, health sciences building and dormitories. '
"This is one of the few opportunities students have to say who they think the
best teachers are," said Prof. Alan Stern, chairperson of the Chancellor's
Committee on Teaching Awards.
Eight $1,000 awards will be made, including four Tanner Awards and three
AMOCO Foundation Good Teaching Awards.. The Nicholas Salgo
Distinguished Teacher Award is a $1,500 prize.
Each nomination should include a written evaluation of the nominee.
Stern s&id the committee's decision would not be based solely on the number
of nominations received. "We are looking for evaluations of teachers who have
demonstrated excellence in inspirational teaching on the undergraduate level,"
he said. "
Ballots must be returned to the committee by March 4.
