There was plenty to celebrate about on Saturday as the Tarheels defeated the
Kentucky Wildcats, 79-72, to win the Eastern Regional. John Kuester (above) was
named the tourney's MVP. He scored 19 points and led the Heels over the
Wildcats. On to Atlanta! .
By GRANT VOSBURGH
COLLEGE PARK, Md. When Steve Krafcisin
toured with a prep all-star basketball team last
summer, he spent some time in Lexington, Ky., on the
University of Kentucky campus. And for each game,
Krafcisin and his high school colleagues dressed out in
hand-me-down. Big Blue Wildcat uniforms.
So it was especially pleasing to the 6-foot-9
freshman center when he was called on to help fourth
ranked Carolina defeat third-ranked Kentucky 77-72
here Saturday in the NCAA Eastern Regional
Krafcisin and teammate John Kuester were
responsible for driving the final nails into the
Wildcats' post-season coffin with eight free throws in
the last 90 seconds of the game. Kuester, who was
selected as the tournament's Most Valuable Player,
canned 1 3 of 1 4 free throws in the game and wound up
with 19 points.
The Tar Heels will play Nevada-Las Vegas next
Saturday at the Omni in Atlanta. UNLV defeated
Idaho State 107-90 in the West Regional. In the other
game, UNC-Charlotte faces Marquette. UNCC upset
top-ranked Michigan 75-68 in the Mideast Regional
while Al McGuire's Warriors downed the ACC's other
representative. Wake Forest, 82-68 for the Midwest
The foul line was where the game was won for
Carolina. The Tar Heels followed their virtuoso
performance of Thursday night against Notre Dame,
when they hit 17 of 17 second-half foul shots, with an
equally exceptional encore against Kentucky,
connecting on 33 of 36 attempts to finish the
tournament with an amazing 50 of 55 mark, 90.9 per
"We have to hit a certain number of foul shots
before we can go home from practice," Kuester said.
"We just kept our poise."
And with that, Kuester could also win the most
valuable understatement of the year award. It was bad
enough that All-America guard Phil Ford was feeling
the effects of his hyperextended elbow before the game
and only had two points at halftime. But while he was
in the locker room preparing for the second half, Ford
experienced a stiffening in his elbow. He said he knew
it was locking up.
Hl shot a free throw and it didn't even get halfway
there," Ford said of a second-half warmup shot. "I
told Coach (Dean) Smith I'd only be hurting the team
if I played, but he asked me to try."
That effort was cut short, however, when Ford was
called for a charge on a fast break only 52 seconds into
the action. It was his fourth foul and he went to the
bench. He stayed there for the remainder of the game.
"This is the third time Phil's done this to me"
Kuester said of having to run the Four Corners
offense. I wish he wouldn't do it anymore."
There were no hard feelings as far as UNC fans were
concerned, though. Kuester ably handled the spread
offense which the Tar Heels used for the final 15
minutes of the game.
Despite "his heroics, Kuester received plenty of
support from forwards Walter Davis and Mike
O'Koren. Davis was seven of 1 1 from the floor and hit
seven of nine free throws for 21 points while O'Koren
hit six of 10 on his way to adding 14 points.
The Tar Heels raced out to a quick lead in the first
half. With only seven minutes gone, the Heels were up
by seven, 23-16. Then late in the half, UNC outscored
Kentucky 7-0 to take a 48-33 lead. The half ended 53
41. The second half, however, was a bit tougher. The
Wildcats applied a tight man-to-man defense to the
Heels and whittled away at the lead. Forward Jack
Givens, who finished the game with 26 points, got the
hot hand and kept Kentucky in the game. Center Rick
Robey hit two foul shots with 15:12 left to cut the Tar
Heel lead to six, 59-53. Enter the Four Corners.

linked to aid
The Carter Administration's attempt to
link the protection of human rights with U.S.
military, aid led five countries to reject that
U.S.. law has linked military assistance to
human rights for the past several years, but
only recently have the laws been enforced,
according to a member of the U.S. House
Committee on International. Relations.
Donald M. Fraser, D-Minn., who will
speak on human rights in foreign policy at 8
tonight in the Great Hall, said in a telephone
interview from his Minnesota office Sunday
that he approved of the Carter
Administration's emphasis on human rights.
"I am enormously impressed with Carter's
determination to elevate the importance of
human rights in U.S. foreign policy," Fraser
said. "I think Congress will be trying to work
with him. . .There won't be a confrontation,
whereas with Ford there was confrontation."
Fraser said Congress may ratify two U.N.
covenants, one dealing with civil and
political rights, the other with economic,
social and cultural rights. Enough U.N.
member-nations already have ratified the
covenants to make them effective, he said.
"The United States has lagged badly as a
result of its failure to ratify these covenants,"
Fraser said. "That's one of the things Carter
is urging, and I hope the Senate will
to be introduced

The introduction of two bills proposing reform of North
Carolina's utility laws appears likely in the General Assembly next
One of the bills proposes a restructuring of the N.C. Utilities
Commission staff and is based on a recommendation made by Gov.
James B. Hunt. -
Fulfilling campaign promises, Hunt has proposed the creation of a
commission staff that is independent of the commission. The staff
would be supervised by an executive director appointed by the
Under Hunt's proposal, the commission would function in a
purely judicial role in adversary proceedings. The staff would
represent the public, while power, telephone and gas companies
would represent themselves.
Hunt said he feels his proposals will restore public confidence in
utilities regulation. .
Sen. I. Beverly Lake Jr., D-Wake, is also preparing a bill for
utilities reform. His bill proposes implementation of changes called
for by a March 9 report of the Legislative Utility Review Committee.
In its report, the committee stated that the N.C. Utilities
Commission should hire an outside consultant to conduct an audit of
A change in the method of determining a utility company's
property value was also suggested by the committee. The present
estimate of a property's "fair value" would be replaced by the amount
the company actually had invested in the property, including land
and equipment investments. A utility company's property value is a
factor in rate-setting.
Council urges recognition of civil rights cause
The law requires that military assistance
be terminated or reduced to any country
guilty of a "consistent pattern of gross
violations of internationally recognized
human rights," including torture, summary
execution (execution without a trial),
prolonged detention with no charge or trial,
and other cruel or unusual treatment.
In addition, the law requires the State
Department to furnish Congress with a
report on the status of human rights in each
country to which military aid is proposed.
Congress may request special reports also.
"It's been in the law in one form or another
for several years," Fraser said.

The Faculty Council approved a
recommendation Friday urging Chancellor
N. Ferebee Taylor to develop means for the
University to annually recognize the cause of
U.S. racial equality and its leaders.
The recommendation was adopted by a
21-19 vote after more than 30 minutes of
discussion. It was adopted as a substitute for
a recommendation urging annual
recognition of Martin Luther King Jr. and
the cause for which he worked and died, on
King's name was omitted from the final
version of the recommendation because
many council members believed one person
should not be singled out for recognition.
"We don't have assurance that selection of
this particular person is one who has
universal acceptance," law prof. J. Dickson
Phillips said. "It's a treacherous enterprise to
make a sort of judgment which is likely to be
irrevocable. Blacks may hold other black
leaders in high esteem."
The original recommendation was one of
nine introduced by the Committee on the
Status of Minorities and the Disadvantaged.
Most of the other eight recommendations
were adopted with little debate.
"It was Dr. King who received the Nobel
Prize, and not those others. . .1 wonder why
we quibble over it," committee chairperson
Charles E. Daye said in defense of the
But before the vote on the substitute
proposal, Daye urged council members to
vote affirmatively. "My own view would be
that half a loaf is better than none."
The only other recommendation that met
debate was one asking that University
officials try to find the monetary resources to
establish a non-need scholarship for blacks,
similar to one administered by the John
Motley Morehead Foundation. Following
an hour of discussion, the proposal was
Daye said UNC needed a non-need
scholarship fund because the school loses
top black students each year to universities
that offer more aid.
Opposition to the recommendation came
from Will Geer, director of student aid at
UNC, who said the recommendation might
be useless. "We'd enter a kind of auction to
buy students, and I'm not sure that in that
auction we would be the highest bidder," he
Geer also said using financial-aid money
for non-need scholarships probably would
be illegal and would cause other groups to
request similar scholarships.
Supporters of the recommendation
argued that money for the scholarships
would not come from federal or University
financial-aid money, but would come
instead from a private source, such as a
"Unless the point is that we ought never to
develop funds on a non-need basis, I don't
think there's any way to oppose the
recommendation," Daye said.
Faculty Council chairperson E. Maynard
Adams then urged members to adopt the
"It seems to me this is a resolution
everybody should be for," he said. "I was in
Philadelphia last week for this purpose, on a
more restricted basis. We all do this in our
departments. Let's just vote for it."
The vote that followed was unanimous.
Faculty Council members also passed
recommendations that urged the chancellor

Carolina Circle of Druids
celebrates arrival of spring
By TENLEY AYERS
Campus Calendar Editor
The Carolina Circle of Druids will celebrate
the Vernal Equinox with its annual rites of
spring to be held at dawn Sunday, March 20,
by the old oak in the Arboretum. Persons
wishing to take an active part in the
ceremonies should meet at 8 p.m. Saturday,
March 19, by Silent Sam. Women are
especially needed. Campus Calendar,
Friday March 18.
The small group that gathered by Silent
Sam at 8 p.m. Saturday looked more like
worshipers of Dionysus, the Greek god of
wine, than Druids.
It did not take long to discover that,
among the six people who showed up, not
one was a Druid, and no one really expected
to meet one.
But soon after the appointed hour, a figure
with a forked staff appeared in the gloom
surrounding Silent Sam. It was the master
Druid, William Baboquivari.
"There's a bigger turnout" than I
expected," he said.
The purpose of the meeting was to
organize the Carolina Circle of Druids, and
the first project was to celebrate the arrival of
"Spring will arrive tomorrow at 17:43
Greenwich Time," Baboquivari announced.

The committee requested a study examining the state's growing
dependence on nuclear power plants.
Sen Lake said his bill would also prohibit fuel adjustment charges
and would require utility companies to conduct full hearings
whenever they want to raise their rates.
Lake said rapid commission action would be taken if a utility ,
company faces a financial crisis if his bill is enacted.
In addition to serving on the review committee, Lake served as
deputy state attorney general for five years, heading the staff that
represented the public in utility proceedings.
Regardless of the outcome of the two bills, Gov. Hunt should be
able to have his recommended changes implemented. By July 1, five
positions on the seven-member commission will be vacated by
expiring terms or resignations. Chairman Tenney I. Deane Jr. also
announced last week that he will resign by the middle of the year. His
resignation would give Hunt six appointments to the commission.

A N.C. Court of Appeals decision to
uphold a lower-court ruling requiring
open UNC law school faculty meetings
apparently will be appealed to the state
Supreme Court, according to N.C.
Deputy Atty. Gen. Andrew A. Vanore
Vanore, who represetned the law
school faculty in the case, said Thursday
that the defendants had until April 19 to
file an appeal. He said no decision
concerning an appeal has been reached.
The Court of Appeals handed down
the ruling Tuesday in a two-to-one
"When one member of a three-court
panel dissents, the losing party has the
right to an appeal " Vanore explained.
"The basis of the appeal would be the
same as before we don't consider the
law-school faculty to be covered by the
statute in question. I respectfully don't
agree with their (the court's)
The appeal stemmed from a suit filed
in April 1976, by a group of UNC law
students who claimed that the law
school faculty meetings were covered by
a state statute which prohibited
governmental bodies from meeting in
Both the lower court and the Appeals
Court ruled that the statute applied to
law-school faculty meetings, holding
that the faculty was in fact a governing
The court cited the faculty's authority
to establish curriculum, scholastic
standards, admission requirements and
law-school size in reaching its decision.
"That policy would be frustrated if
the public is admitted only at the highest
decision-making level and is excluded at
the level where the real deliberation,
debate and decision-making process
takes place," the Court of Appeals said.
Whether the court's interpretation of
the statute will affect other faculties and
agencies of the University is not yet
clear, according to Assistant to the Vice
Chancellor Sarah H. Ramsey.
"It is a broadly written statute,"
Ramsey said. "In reaching its decision,
the court relied heavily on the nature of
the business of the faculty."
Ramsey said the ruling could affect
other University faculties which
delegate powers and duties similar to
those of the law school.
"It will depend on whether the
organization or faculty in question is
exercising governmental duties."
Dean of the law school Robert G.
Byrd said the law-school faculty needs
the right to meet privately in order to
discuss confidential matters.
He said certain situations could
arise such as deciding whether to
rehire a professor or discussing students
who have petitioned the law school for
admission which would be better
discussed in private.
Byrd said he would need to confer
with both the law-school faculty and
Chancellor N. Ferebee Taylor before
deciding whether to appeal.
