North Carolina's Phil Ford penetrates against Virginia in the recent Atlantic Coast
Conference tournament. Ford scored 29 points and was named Most Valuable Player
Thursday night as the Tar Heels came from 14 down to beat Notre Dame 79-77.
UNC students to staff new station
By GRANT VOSBURGH
COLLEGE PARK, Md Despite a sore elbow, a
national television audience, two Notre Dame
timeouts with two seconds left and the luck of the Irish
on St. Patrick's Day, UNC All America guard Phil
Ford calmly stepped up to the foul line and swished
two game-winning free throws to give the fourth
ranked Tar Heels a 79-77 NCAA Eastern Regional
semifinal victory over lOth-ranked Notre Dame.
The Heels' victory places them in the final game of
the Eastern Regionals to be played Saturday at noon
against third-ranked Kentucky. The Wildcats downed
Virginia Military Institute 93-78 in the other semifinal
game Thursday night.
With 27 seconds remaining in Carolina's game, the
Irish's Don"Duck" Williams hit a field goal to knot the
score at 77. Carolina then came down the court and
held the ball for one shot. Ford's jumper with two
seconds left bounced off the front of the rim, but the
referee whistled a crucial foul on Notre Dame's Bruce
Flowers. That set up Ford's heroics.
"I had the ball and I saw that there were three or four
seconds left, so 1 decided to take the shot," the Rocky
Mount junior explained. "Williams tapped the ball up,
and I got the foul. My arm didn't bother me. 1 forgot all
about it. It cn be ready by Saturday."
Ford had crashed to the floor with 1:18 left, coming
up holding his right elbow. UNC Head Coach Dean
Smith said after the game he knew Ford's injury was
"When Phil says his elbow hurts," Smith said, "it
must really hurt. We didn't know if he would be able to
extend it fully on the foul shot."
It was not smooth sailing for the Tar Heels, whose
record now stands at 26-4. They spent the entire game
playing catch-up basketball. It took three separate
rallies to keep the Heels within grasp of the win.
Notre Dame sped. off to a 16-8 lead with only five
minutes gone in the game. Carolina battled back and
tied the score 26-26. Another Irish surge, however, put
them up by 10, 40-30, at the half.
Notre Dame immediately added four more points on
two dunks by Toby Knight in the first 40 seconds of he
second half. Down by 14, the Tar Heels proceeded to
put on the finest comeback of the season, applying
smothering full-court pressure o
handlers. In less than four minutes
out-scored Notre Dame 18-4, tying
when Rich Yonakor pulled down an

was perfect in the second half, hitting 1 7 of 1 7 attempts.

Morgan approves Fordham
as HEW assistant secretary
By MERTON VANCE
N.C. Sen. Robert Morgan gave Ihis approval
Wednesday to the appointment of Dr. Christopher
Fordham, dean of the UNC medical school, to be
assistant secretary of the Department of Health,
Education and Welfare (HEW).
President Jimmy Carter gave his ap proval to the
Fordham appointment last week but w;as waiting for
Morgan to give his approval. Under so-called
"senatorial courtesy" the President confers with the
potential appointee's home-state senat or before the
nomination to a federal post is made.
Morgan said he delayed giving approval to the
Fordham appointment because he thinks Carter is not
appointing active N.C. Democraits to other
Morgan said Carter is appointing proifessionals like
Fordham but not active Democrats in the state.
Morgan has specifically mentioned farmer governor
Robert Scott, whom Morgan wants to be appointed to
the Appalachian Regional Commission .
Following Morgan's protests last week, White
House spokespersons said that Scott pr obably would
be appointed to either the Appalachian Regional
Commission or the Coastal Plains Regional
Morgan was in North Carolina over the weekend to
talk to party leaders about Fordham's nomination.
The nomination now goes to the Senate for
Fordham became dean of the UNC Medical School
in 1971 and was appointed vice chancellor of health
affairs in December 1976.
If the appointment is approved by the Senate,
Fordham will become chief federal health affairs
officer under HEW Secretary Joseph A. Caiifano.
Fordham's jurisdiction in that post would include
the Public Health Service, the National Institute of
Health, the Center for Disease Control and the Food
and Drug Administration.
Now that Morgan has given his approval to the
selection of Fordham, a formal nomination probably
will be made by Carter within the next few days.
UNC Chancellor N. Ferebee Taylor said earlier this
week he does not yet know who will replace Fordham if
he goes to Washington.

VXYC, a progressive-rock FM radio
station staffed by UNC students, was
scheduled to sign on the air at 5 a.m. today.
The noncommercial, educational station
replaces the student-run WCAR, whjch
signed off the air last spring. The Federal
Communications Commission (FCC)
assigned WXYC a stereo 89.3 FM wave.

Live coverage is planned for the New York

Approximately $35,000 was spent to make
the physical conversion from carrier current

from a 1973 student referendum.

In addition to producing programs,
training new personnel and fulfilling all the

The seats from the UNC Crew Club's crew
shells disappeared Tuesday night, and if they
cannot be found both the men's and women's
crew teams may be out of action for at least a
month, according to Paul McDonald,
president o f the UNC Crew Club.
A total o:f 17 seats were taken, including all
of the seat s from both of the UNC team's
eight-man shells and one seat from an eight
man shell owned by the Duke University
crew teanti. All of the boats were at
McDonald said he at first thought the
seats may, have been taken as a prank, but so
far the seats have not been returned.
McDonald has reported the theft to the
University police who are investigating.
The seats are made of wood and are just
wide enough for a person to sit on. The crew
members call the seats "slides" because they
can be adjusted by sliding the wheels, which
are located under each side of the scat, along
a track o n each side of the shell.
McDonald said he suspects the
disappearance may have been a prank
because "you have to know a little bit about
crew to take them out. There is a trick to it."
He said other crew-club equipment stored
at the lake was not taken. He also said the
slides in a four-man shell owned by the club
Despite the fact that the slides are of little
use for anything besides crew racing,
McDonald estimates it may cost $50 each to
replace the 17 slides.
Without the slides, McDonald said the
UNC women's crew team will not be able to
compete this weekend against the University
The Tennessee team is not bringing its
own boats and had planned to borrow a shell
McDonald said the club may not be able
to find replacement slides in time for the
men's team to compete in the University of
Virginia regatta next weekend.
"Without the slides 1 think the crew team
won't be able to compete for another month
to six weeks," McDonald said.

el: socialism for Ah
By DARR. ELL SHARPLESS
St .tf Writer
Black activist Stokely Carmichael
advocated a social ist government for the
liberation of Afr.ica and its people
during a discussion in Upendo Lounge
in Chase Cafeteria Thursday .
Carmichael sought support for the
African People's Rev olutionary Party
from blacks at UNC. He organized the
socialist party as anx underground
movement, but since has . sought su pport
overtly internationally. The par.ty is
attempting to make tUe American
government aware that Afr. ica should be
governed by Africans for the liberation
of all African people, he sai d.
The party also concentrates on
enlightening more Afro-Ame ricans to
the need for liberation of African
people. Members of this party lTiust all
know and understand what they are
doing, for we have no need for ro bots."
Carmichael sought support only from
blacks. One student asked him if hewas
racist. He denied being a racist, add'ing
that to liberate African people is to do
good for all of humanity.
He said Qnly blacks should work to
liberate their people because they are the
only people with that primary goal.

Stokely Carmichael, speaking at UNC Thursday, advocated a socialist government for
Africa and its people. Carmichael is a former member of the Black Panthers and the
Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC).
Others without that primary goal could
only take away from its full realization,
Speaking on the oppression of
African people, Carmichael said, "The
only solution is revolution." He went on
to say that two objects cannot occupy
the same place at once. To bring about
change would require revolution, he
Carmichael then led discussion about
socialism's being the best form of
government in comparison to
capitalism. In capitalism, the fruits of
labor are not enjoyed by those who
labor. He said, instead, the profits are
enjoyed by the owners of corporations.
"The real viciousness of capitalism is
that those who labor do not enjoy the
fruits of their labor," he said.
Carmichael said this, in essence, is
slavery when the. slav e does the work
and the owner enjoys all the profits.
Capitalism has; competition,
oppression of the wea.k, selfishness and
corruption as underlying forces, hesaid,
to the point that Amer icans think man is
inherently selfish and corrupt. Under
socialism, the masses equally share the
profits, so there an: no weak to be
oppressed and then; is no need for
competition, selfishness or corruption,

FDA saccharin ban
By TONY GUNN
The announcement by the Food
and Drug Administration (FDA) last
week that it will. ban the artificial
sweetener saccharin was not a
complete surprise to Coca-Cola, the
general manager of Coca-Cola
Bottling Co. in Durham said
"lit was not totally out of the blue,"
Charlie B. Bagley said of the ban.
"We've known that saccharin might
be banned for some time."
Saccharin is the- artificial
sweetener used in many, if not all,
diet soft drinks.
Bagley was not sure when the ban
would take effect, but he estimated
that it might not be until July.
"If it becomes effective at that
time," Bagley said, "we will let it (the
drinks containing saccharin) work
itself out," instead of pulling the
products off the market.

If the saccharin ban were put into
effect before the FDA approval, then
the company would have to replace
saccharin with sugar, Bagley said.
Tab, for example, would have
fewer calories than Coke, he said, but
not as few as it did before the ban
went into effect.
Bagley said he had no idea what
the new additive would be. The
company, he added, has not made a
final decision on what they are going

manager of the Pepsi Cola Bottling
Co. of Durham, said the
announcement of the ban caught him
