ATLANTA, Ga. At last, the 'ifs are over. There is no
more speculation about what might be. The North Carolina
basketball team is getting a shot at the national championship.
An 84-83 win over the Runnin Rebels of Nevada-Las Vegas
Saturday in the Omni places L'NC in the final opposite
Marquette at 8:15 p.m.
The Tar Heels edged the Rebels in the semi-final game in yet
another heart-stopper, their fifth such thriller in a row.
Carolina, 28-4 on the year and Victorious in its last 1 5 games,
was down by 10 points with a little over 19 minutes left in the
But the Miracle Kids did it again.
"We knew we could do it." freshman center Rich Yonakor
said. "Just like Notre Dame (when UNC was 14 points down
in the Eastern Regional semi-finals), we banded together and
kept hustling. We knew that if we did that, we'd do it."
. The Heels had fallen victim to the running and shooting
tempo that UNLV specializes in, throughout the first half.
Although they managed to stay within six points (49-43) at
halftime, the Tar Heels had committed a disastrous 16
turnovers. Yonakor said that he sensed UNC getting caught
up in the Rebels' style.
"I don't think we were surprised at how quickly they got it
down for the shot. I think we got hurt a couple of times,
though, when we tried it on offense too. You know, a couple of
times we went a bit too fast," he said.
The Tar Heels slowed the pace down to their liking in the
second half. After UNLV's Eddie Owens and Glen
Grondrezick each hit a field goal to put the Rebels up 53-43,
UNC got things under control. A Phil Ford basket was
matched by Las Vegas Sam Smith at 1 8:42 and then the H eels
did what they have become famous for doing.
Yonakor started things off with two quick field goals and
then the defense denied UNLV an inbounds pass in the
required five seconds. The UNC crowd was up on its feet by
this time, anticipating good things on the way.
A Ford foul shot and two M ike O'Koren baskets pulled the
Heels even 55-55. Tight defense by Ford then forced a jump
ball w hich UNC controlled. The spurt ended with a five-footer
by Walter Davis and a driving layup by Ford.
When the Nevada dust had cleared. North Carolina had
scored 14 straight points, the Heels had the lead 59-55, and
just three minutes had elapsed.
"They changed defense very well. I think that bothered us,"
Rebel Coach Jerry Tarkanian solemnly said after the game. "I
thought early in the game we were doing things really well. I
don't know w hat happened. We could never recover again."

Plaza hotel hosts press;
UNC optimism is high
By RICKY WILLENZIK
ATLANTA. Ga. Four or five hundred reporters, NCAA
officials, and guests gathered in the Peachtree Plaza Hotel Sunday
for a press conference. Everyone was expecting to hear from the last
two coaches left in the NCAA basketball tournament, and they did.
UNC Head Coach Dean Smith, who moments earlier had been
named Coach of the Year, brought Phil Ford, Walter Davis, John
Kuester and Mike O'Koren.
The first two questions were directed to Ford. "It hasn't hit me yet
that we're playing for the national championship," he said. "Maybe it
When asked if Nevada-Las Vegas' Reggie Theus was the toughest
guard he had faced. Ford said. "I think Kuester's the toughest one,
and 1 have to go against him every day in practice." '
Then, with no introduction, it was time for The Mike O'Koren
Show. No one was prepared for the quick, candid responses of the
Jersey City kid. One reporter asked if the 31 points in Saturday's
game was the most he had ever scored. "So far, yeah," O'Koren said
as reporters laughed. "You got to remember this is the first time 1 ever
been in something like this."
Several questions later, he was asked if all the attention and
activities of the last few weeks was like being in a tidal wave. "It feels
more like the Titanic than a tidal wave," he said. A reporter asked if
being on the Titanic was not a bad sign. "Well, I'm off it now,"
1 9 dorms to participate
Tuesday in random
Please turn to page 2.
By ELIZABETH SWARINGEN
Students living in 19 residence halls will participate in
general random drawings Tuesday for returning to their
present residence halls. The combined dorm quotas
were' exceeded by 392 applicants.
The seven men's dorms participating in the general
drawing are Alexander, Connor, Ehringhaus, Everett,
Mangum, Morrison and Stacy.
The 12 women's dorms participating are Alderman,
Alexander, Cobb, Connor, Ehringhaus, James, Joyner,
Kenan, Morrison, Parker,' Spencer and Whitehead.
The campus-wide quota for men's spaces is 1,526 and
as of Friday afternoon, 1,610 students were listed as
participants in the drawing, exceeding the quota by 84.
Applicants for women's spaces totaled 1,923, which
exceeds the 1,615 quota by 308.
Although only two women's dorms and seven men's
dorms fell below or equaled their quotas, the housing
department extended the quota by as much as two
spaces in seven dorms to exempt them from the
According to James Condie, director of University
housing, extending those quotas was the best way to
"For example, in those dorms that are one over their
quotas, that one student would have to wait for a
cancellation to get in," Condie said. "Even then the
student would be on a central waiting list and may not
have a very good chance of getting back into the present
"We generally get 300 contract cancellations a year
and we're assuming some people may cancel by
Tuesday, allowing those dorms with extended quotas to
meet their quotas exactly.
"We are trying to strike a balance between having as
few sign-ups as possible and staying away from
overcrowding from the beginning. At the same time we
want to make the waiting lists as viable and operable as
Condie noted that 34 men could be closed out of some
North Campus residence halls while other men's halls in
the area had extra spaces due to not meeting their
quotas. A special drawing on Wednesday will place 19
of those 34 men in the extra North Campus spaces.
"We feel that with this procedure many more studnets
who already live in that area would be assured of staying
there without going to the central waiting list." Condie
The preliminary drawing statistics also revealed that
students are over-applying for the more expensive
dorms (Stacy and Cobb) while under-applying for the
less expensive (Manly and Aycock).
"1 think it is interesting that this procedure shows a
demand for Title IX regulations from both sexes."
"I think we're growing closer to making sign-up a
routine procedure rather than a bonfire on a particular
spring weekend," Condie said. "If we don't keep
pounding out our problems we're never going to find the
best sign-up method."
Students may cancel their contracts and receive a full
prepayment refund by 5 p.m. today. Any adjustments
concerning dorm participation in the general drawing
will be announced at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Students may observe the general drawing at a time
and place designated by their residence directors.
Lists of students who received University housing will
be posted in each residence hall after the drawing.
Students closed out of their residence halls w ho wish
to be placed on a central waiting list will be included in a
drawing in the housing contracts office April 5.
Submission cards will be numbered as they are drawn
and that number will be assigned to the student's
contract. The contract will be filed numerically, giving
the student priority over all off-campus applicants.
Students on the waiting list may receive a full
prepayment refund if they cancel applications before
they are assured a space in University housing.
Room assignments will be mailed on April 12 to all
students who fell w ithin the quotas at the time of general
sign-up and the preliminary draw ing. Assignments from
the waiting list will be mailed as they are made by the
housing contracts office.

basketball finals will not be canceled,
Chancellor N. Ferebee Taylor said
"1 believe this community has the

celebration of a great event without
canceling classes the next day,"
Taylor said he had received no
requests to cancel classes.
"I. do not need anyone to bring to
my attention the exubernce t this,

1957: fewer injuries,
two triple overtimes
By DEDE BILES
Sometimes early abilities foretell success.
Mozart seemed destined for a career as a
great composer when he began turning out
minuets at the age of five. It was the situation
with UNC's 1957 NCAA Championship
Losing only one man from a 1956 team
that went 18-5 and was ranked among the
top five teams in the nation in pre-season
polls, Carolina knew they had the talent. A
94-66 trouncing of Furman in the opening
game reaffirmed their confidence.
Despite early season successes, neither

Carolina's early season success continued
with easy wins over Clemson and George

calls for tight controls on Servomatio

Student Consumer Action Union (SCAU)
report released Thursday.
The report also concluded that students

SCAU adviser James E. Littlefield, an

accurate conclusions from the survey.
SCAU recommended that the contract
between Servomation and the University be

review procedure clause which would insure
that Servomation is effectively meeting the

said Thursday. "There is no way to write a
contract to make someone improve. The best
safeguard is that the contract can be

Vice Chancellor of Business and Finance
Claiborne S. Jones, who arranged the
current contract with Servomation, agreed.
SCAU also recommended that the Food
Service Advisory Committee increase its
input in the monitoring of Servomation,
citing a breakdown in communication
between the committee, the business and
finance office and Servomation.
The business and finance office reviews
Servomation operations annually and can
terminate the contract if the services are

"Have you ever seen anything like that

over," Chapel Hill Mayor James C. Wallace

If Mayor Wallace did collapse
immediately after the game, he must have
been the only one in Chapel Hill to do so, at
least for several hours. For the second
consecutive Saturday night, hordes of
ecstatic Tar Heel followers jammed
downtown streets and led police to barricade
traffic from the downtown area.
Despite the mass street celebration, there
were no major crowd control problems for
the Chapel Hill police, according to Capt.
