Friday asked the
and Welfare (HEW)
Tuesday to postpone
its March 1 deadline
for developing a new
desegregation plan for
the 16-campus system.
uawtAtMj Friday asked HEW
Friday General Counsel
Peter Libassi to petition the U.S. District
Court in Washington, D.C., for more time to
formulate the plan.
The same court ruled Jan. 17 that the
HEW-approved desegregation plans being
implemented by the UNC system and five
other state university systems were not strict
enough. The ruling, stemming from a 1972
suit filed against HEW by the National
Association for the Advancement of
Colored People Legal Defense Fund, Inc.
(LDF) ordered HEW and LDF to work
together on a new plan to be submitted to the
court March 1.
Friday said he wants the universities to
have some input into the new plan, and it was
for that reason that he requested the delay.
"The principal point is that the six states
involved in the case would like input into the
response that is to be made to the court,"
Friday said. "There has been none so far on
our part, and March 1 is next week."
The five other states whose university
systems are affected are Arkansas, Florida,
Georgia, Oklahoma and Virginia.
Although UNC is not a party to the suit,
Friday feels the University system should
have an opportunity to present its case. He
believes the present desegregation plan is a
good one, and UNC has exceeded its
requirements so far.
The new plan possibly could provide
major changes in such areas as admissions
policies and academic standards. One fear is
that the new recommendations will force the
University to assign student and facutly to
the 16 UNC campuses on the basis of race.
Friday opposes this method of desegregation
and wants to detail his reasons, he said.
An LDF spokesperson said he didn't
believe Friday's request for input was a valid
one because UNC is not a party to the suit
Friday and several other university
presidents were in Washington Tuesday for a
meeting not directly related to the
desegregation plans. The group met with
HEW Secretary Joseph Califano to discuss
ways in which universities can be more
involved in policy decisions affecting them.
One of the major topics discussed was
funding for research universities.
"We spent time studying such things as
graduate fellowships, research libraries and
grants," Friday said. "The most important
thing coming out of the meeting wasan open
free line of communication."
Although President Jimmy Carter
recently approved a $9 million addition to
the proposed 1977 higher education budget,
the educators expressed concern over an
overall decrease in the budget from last year.
"Education came out well, but we still
need a whole lot more," Friday said in
reference to the budget.
Heels 'break' Pack's back
for 90-73 Carmichael rout
By GRANT VOSBURGH
Walter Davis triumphantly threw his arms
over his head as his UNC teammates
surrounded the Pineville senior Wednesday
night in Carmichael Auditorium. It was the
last game for Davis and he had just been
taken out of the game.
What a way to go.
What it all boiled down to sports fans, was
a good, of down-home, in-your-face, all-juke-no-jive
Tar Heel blowout. Although the
final score was 90-73, it was not even that
close as the Heels held an 84-54 lead with
The 8th-ranked Tar Heels, now 20-4
overall and tied for first in the Atlantic Coast
Conference with an 8-3 mark, completely
ran the Wolfpack ragged with an explosive
fast break and a sticky defense that caused 24
turnovers. They also shot 61.8 per cent from
State took a 15-14 lead on a three-point
play by forward Kenny Carr with 13:05
remaining in the first half. But Carolina then
held the Pack in check for three minutes
while-proceeding to rattle off seven points
for a 21-15 advantage. State tied it up, 23-23,
with 8:25 showing on the clock, but from
there on out it was all UNC.
The Tar Heels put it away early in the
second half, outscoring the Wolfpack 10-0
for a 20-point lead.
For the Tar Heels, the rout was a fitting
way to end the Carmichael careers of the five
seniors (John Kuester, Woody Coley, Bruce
Buckley, Tommy LaGarde and Davis).
Without LaGarde's services, however, it
meant a concerted effort by the frontcourt
players to fill the void.
"Good teams rise to the occasion," Davis
said. "I think we're a great team."
N.C. State Coach Norman Sloan might
well agree. The usually fiery coach was
somber following the game.
"This is the worst defeat we've had since
I've been at North Carolina State," he said
matter-of-factly. "We may have lost by more
points before, but we've never been beaten as
badly as we were tonight.
"No excuses for it; no explanations for
it all I can say is that we were embarassed
very badly," he added. "Things were so bad
tonight, I'm just running over in my mind
why it happened like that."
Ford led all scorers with 24 points while
dishing out 14 assists. Davis added 14 points
and 12 rebounds and seven assists. Mike

The zealous crowd cheered and applauded
as their leaders appeared on stage to speak
out against the controversial amendment.
"Let the message go out today that the
people of North Carolina are opposed to the

Sen. Edward Renfrow, D-Smithfield,
master of ceremonies.
"We are opposed to adding loose words to
the constitution without knowing the effects

When Phyllis Schlafly, national
chairperson of STOP ERA, appealed to the
crowd to make their wishes known to their
senators, she received a standing ovation.
"When you go to the capital the

"Because the Equal Rights Amendment

The N.C. General Assembly probably will
reinstate capital punishment in the state by
an overwhelming margin, Orange County
Rep. Trish Hunt said Tuesday.
Hunt, a Democrat, said that most
discussion in the assembly will center on the
inclusion of a rape provision in the death
penalty legislation. She said a law making
first-degree murder punishable by death will
pass in the House by at least a two-to-one
margin, and possibly by as much as five to
There is also strong support for the death
penalty in the N.C. Senate, with some
estimates running as high as four to one in
She said the General Assembly is very
concerned with making sure that the newest
version of the death penalty is beyond
Hunt explained that because the
constitutionality of the death penalty as a
punishment for rape is questionable, the
North Carolina legislators probably will
omit it from the final version of their capital
"The bill will get very narrow so that it will
be constitutional," she said. "Therefore, we
will see a drop in the number of people on
death row and the number of times the death
penalty is invoked."
Hunt said many legislators who support
the death penalty feel it would act as a"
deterrent to capital crimes. Supporters also
claim capital punishment would gain
revenge for the relatives of victims and
would cut prison expenses for the state, she
She said that the argument most often
used in the state legislature by those
opposing the death penalty is that there is a
chance for a mistake in judgment, and any
error which results in the execution of an
innocent person is irreversable.
"Another argument often used is that the
death penalty always falls on the poor," she
said. Hunt explained that those who usually
end up on death row are those who cannot
afford a good lawyer.
"The bill has so much support because the
people of North Carolina want it," Hunt
said. "However, I am going to vote against it
on moral grounds."
Joel Schwartz, UNC political science
professor, said he disagrees with Hunt's
stand on capital punishment but agrees that
the bill probably will not include a rape
"1 suspect that they will delete rape,
because they are afraid it will not stand the
constitutional test," Schwartz said.
"However, I favor the death penalty but only
in very limited cases."
Schwartz said he only favored the death
penalty in cases in which rehabilitation is

Prof supports concept of life imprisonment
By JEFF COHEN
Barry Nekell, associate professor of
law, spoke recently at a public hearing on
the death penalty before the N . C . H ouse
of Representatives in an attempt to
persuade the legislators that the death
penalty was economically unsound. '
Nekeel, who spoke last Thursday, said
his main argument that the cost of the
entire capital punishment process is, in
the long run, more expensive than life
imprisonment was well received.
However, despite the efforts of Nekell
and others opposed to capital
punishment, the death penalty is
expected to pass by an overwhelming
margin, in both houses of the N.C.
Nekell said he was trying to present a
practical rationale against the death
penalty to the lawmakers. "At one time it
was cheaper to execute people than to
keep them in prison for life," he
"However, now the total procedure
involved in capital punishment has
become more expensive, in order to
comply with the 1976 Supreme Court
decision regardivij the death penalty."
According to the proposed capital
punishment legislation, two trials, both
requiring juries, will be necessary. The
first trial will determine the guilt or
innocence of the defendent while the
second will pass the sentence.
Nekell explained that although he
personally regarded the ethical
arguments to be more important than the
monetary ones, he though the financial
arguments would have more of an

"Go with Mo" the banners declared during the
Democratic primaries last year. But Mo Udall
always finished second (except in
Many political columnists thought Udall lost
because he wasn't mean enough he stop talked
and listened to anyone, unlike most of the other
candidates, who were on tight schedules.
Speaking to an attentive crowd at a reception
held at Spencer Dormitory Monday night, Udall
displayed that same willingness to talk about
himself, his presidential bid, other politicians
and the issues.
He explained his decision to . seek the
presidency: "Although it's a tradition that House
members like myself don't run for president,
once you hit the Senate if you're under 65 and
not under indictment they want you to run.
"But I was asked to run by a large group of
Congressmen. 1976 was a crazy year the
presidential race was wide open, and I assumed
thai 1 had one good chance. 1 cannot say right
now whether I'll run again, because in eight years
I'll be eight years older."
Udall joked about his Secret Service
protection during the campaign: "At the
Democratic National Convention, I was
informed that my Secret Service protection
would expire at midnight on the day that Carter
won the nomination. The agents stayed in a
room next door to mine at the convention; so
around midnight I peeped in and asked the man
there if it was all right to go downstairs and have
a drink with the Arizona delegation. The man
replied, 'It's fine with me I'm from the phone
company.. I'm dismantling the Secret Service
phones.' Immediately I knew that my limo had
changed into a pumpkin."

Udall was often kidded about his
basketball ability during the campaign. He
recalled that he was once introduced in
Pennsylvania as a great basketball player. "Yet I
was on a team that went broke and folded, lost 16
straight games a pro record and I was second
Udall loves to tell anecdotes about other
politicians as much as he does about himself:
On Nelson Rockefeller There are two
interpretations of Rockefeller's middle finger
gesture toward those State University of New
York-Binghamton students. Ford's Press
Secretary Ron Nessen said it meant the
administration was No. 1, while Washington
comedian Mark Russell said "that's how the
Chase Manhattan Bank tells you that you can't
have a loan."
On Richard Nixon and the Imperial
Presidency Nixon always had his appointment
secretary announce his arrival at staff meetings
by saying, "Gentlemen, the President of "the
United States." Well, I can see the secretary
announcing Nixon to his wife in their bedroom
at night by saying, "Mrs. Nixon, your husband,
the President of the United States."
On LBJAUer receiving a speech from one of
his writers, Johnson returned it and snapped, "I
want you bastards to rewrite this thing and put
some goddamn humility into it."

On the first senator from Arizona After
arriving in Washington, our first senator felt
compelled to make a speech in the Senate
chamber. Well, he told the Senate that all we
(Arizona) need are two things good people and
water. Suddenly, a Vermont senator interrupted
and said, "If you'll excuse me, sir, that's all they
need in hell."
On Wayne Hays Mays was a strong
supporter of the Vietnam War until the very end,
but apparently he finally took the advice of the
war protesters "Make love, not war."
As former chairperson of the Interior Energy
and Environmental subcommittee and presently
Interior Committee Chairperson, Udall's
thoughts are constantly preoccupied with
solutions to America's energy and
environmental problems. Chatting amiably with
a group of students at his reception at Spencer
Dorm M onday night, Udall emphasized the need
to adopt small technologies into the American
way of life.
"We think that because we are a big
technology, we need big technologies to solve
our problems but we need small technologies,
for example, we should use windmills to power
everyone's home in North Carolina.
"We must use our imagination to develop new
technologies to solve the energy crisis. Probably
100 ideas come across my desk every day. 98 are
crazy, but two will probably produce 5 per cent
. of our energy in several years."
Udall occasionally teased his reception
audience. When a student said, "Hj I'm a
reporter from the DTH, the student
newspaper," Udall paused and responded, "Let's
see how many here trust the DTH." Then a
student inquired, "What response do you have to
the Teton Dam collapse?" Udall's reply: "I was
Udall's words are, if anything, an
understatement. An eloquent defender of the
environment, he has fought hard over the years
to stop many ill-conceived projects including the
New River. As Interior Committee Chairperson,
Udall has several environmental policy goals
which he outlined for all concerned: a strip
mining bill, legislation to double the size of the
National Park System, more wilderness areas, a
decision on plutonium use and a comprehensive
land use bill.
