Thousands
as Heels return;
fans defy sheriff

At 12:50 p.m. Tuesday in the lobby of the Raleigh-Durham
Airport, the usual bustle of the waiting room was replaced by a new
mood a mood of expectancy and mounting excitement. The Tar
Heels were on their way home from Atlanta, and their fans were
ready to greet them.
"The team ain't coming through here, you know, the airport
security guard said for the umpteenth time. "You're supposed to meet
them at Carmichael."
But these loyal, diehard Tar Heel fans were unprepared to believe
that anyone would deny them the right to greet their team as they
stepped from the plane. But the fans were wrong.
Out at the back gate to the runways, tucked away in a little corner
of the parking lot, the more-resourceful fans tracked down the spot
from which the bus would exit the bus which would pick up the
players at the door of the plane.
The fans waited. And the officers from the Wake County Sheriffs
Department who were guarding the gate waited. One girl told the
officers they might as well let everybody inside because as soon as the
gate opened to let the bus through, everybody would rush in anyway.
"They're going to run into the front end of a bus," replied one
officer. "You ever been kissed by a TrailwaysT'
At 2: 15, over an hour after the plane was due to arrive, there was
still no sign of the Team that small group of UNC students whose
finesse on the basketball court and abundance of personality have
won them the respect of those who follow their careers.
Finally, the bus reached the gate. It paused long enough for the
fans to let out one fantastically loud cheer.
As the bus headed for Chapel H ill, the fans rushed to their cars and
likewise headed for Chapel Hill.
There, a crowd of approximately 6,000 packed Raleigh Road in
front of Woollen Gym.
A sedate Tar Heel team filed through reaching arms into
Carmichael Auditorium. Inside, the players were besieged by
autograph seekers. For 30 minutes, the players signed anything they
could write on.
John Kuester stepped onto the scorer's table, and, as the fans
cheered, the rest of the team joined him.
The seniors spoke quietly to the fans. Tve had a great four years,"
said Kuester. "1 would like to thank Coach Smith for keeping us
together."

. Similar scenes prevailed in other dorms Tuesday as residents of 19
dorms participated in a random drawing for University housing next
year.
Approximately 20 Whitehead residents waited in nervous
anticipation at I p.m. in Spencer lobby for their names to be drawn or
not drawn in the lottery.
"This is the worst day of the year. I swear. Ya'll, I'm getting scared.
What will 1 do if I don't get back in? What are ya'll going to do if

"Cry... cry a lot."
Approximately 105 residents live in Whitehead, according to
Resident Director Martha Dossoff. There are 66 available spaces for
returning girls, and 78 current residents took part in the drawing.
Within 20 minutes, the 66 names were drawn and sighs of relief,
hugs and a few muffled obscenities replaced the prior stillness. But
not all the reactions were happy ones.
Rain forced the Morrison housing lottery from the outdoor
volleyball court into the dorm's recreation room.

UNC speech course based on inmates' 'tell it like it is ' program
Rv THM WATVINC , , 1 i i . . .- . . . .. . .
By TOM W ATKINS
Staff Writer
Editor's note: The following story is the second in a
two-part series about a UNC speech course unlike any
other in the United States.
The seeds for Speech 95-96 were sown in 1 969, when
the late George Randall, deputy commissioner of the
N.C. Department of Corrections, asked the UNC
speech division to organize a team of students and
instructors to train selected inmates for a speakers'
program.
The program, titled "Tell It Like It Is," trained
offenders from Polk Youth Center in Raleigh to speak
to high school audiences in the state on how to avoid a
life of crime, particularly crime related to drug
addiction.
"Randall had bad feelings about the drug situation
in prisons," said Paul D. Brandes, speech professor
and primary developer of the course. "Some offenders
were very intelligent, there was no money for drug
programs and they wanted someone to talk to vouth.
"I never even thought about such a program before
Randall mentioned it, but I don't like to feel so rigid
that we can't experiment." -
The program evolved into the present short course
in communication in spring 1971 and was offered to
volunteers at Umstead Youth Center in Butner.
It has since been offered to offenders at Sanford
Advancement Center in Sanford; Polk Youth Center,
Central Youth Center, North Central Correctional
Center, Triangle Correctional Center and the N.C.
Correctional Center for Women, all in Raleigh;
Sandhills Youth Center in McCain and Pre-Release
and After Care (PRAC) center in Greensboro.
A 97-page syllabus for the course was published in
May 1976, the result of the efforts of Brandes, former
teaching assistant Michael Frazier (now a law student
at N.C. Central University) and the 158 students who
had assisted in teaching the course during the first
seven years.
The syllabus, which includes 12 encounter sessions
and appendices on group dynamics and a model
integrating the various concepts, may be used to teach
inmates, prison officials, prison guards and custodial
and treatment personnel. The course can last from
four to 12 weeks, with each encounter taking two to
- three hours.
"We experimented around with different concepts
in putting together the syllabus," Brandes said. "If
techniques worked, they were kept; if not, they were
discarded.
"If we rewrote the syllabus now. it would be abr Jt
two-thirds the same. The level of sophistication is so
hard; you never know what kind of offender you'll
have."
The Federal Correctional Institution, whose
inmates participate in the course, is a medium-custody
federal prison for persons convicted of federal crimes,
such as kidnapping or hijacking. Most of those in the
course have committeed felonies, including bank
robbery, drug smuggling and stolen goods offenses.1
"There are also some first-degree murderers in the
program, Brandes said, but they are usually easy to
work with. Murder is usually a-one-time thing."
Smith said there have been very few problems with
the prisoners." " " ...
"We've only had one disruptive inmate, and we
found out he w as just trying to be humorous," he said.
"The biggest problem we have is building trust
between the class members and inmates. By the simple
fact that we're outside, they tend to feel we're okay and
they're not. They might put us on a pedestal in their
minds.
"We have to break down the walls, try pt get their
trust. It's a two-way problem; it can be on our side and
theirs."
Some problems brought up are referred to the
liaison committee, a group of three students and
approximately 12 inmates who meet together on
Wednesdays to get positive and negative feedback
from each other.
Smith noted that there have been some cutting
remarks made by prisoners, but that they are part of
what the students are being taught to accept.
So far, there have been no in-depth, scientific
evaluations of the effectiveness of the communication
course, but sjmrdata have been collected.-
"We use pretests to 'determine the' prisoners self
concept, positive and negative attitudes toward their
situation and chances of their being able to operate (in
their situation)," said Steve Aceto, a senior history
major from Montreat. Inmates are tested again after
the course to gauge changes in their attitudes.
Students handle fund-seeking procedures as well as
a number of other responsibilities. Aceto if workingon
the first prerelease package for FCI, a program to
orient prisoners to such things as parole regulations
and job-interviewing skills before they are released.
The class also is seeking a grant of approximately
$4,000 from the National Institute of Corrections
(NIC) in Washington, D.C., to teach the
communications course to jail personnel in Asheville
in May.

Coalition plans
protest of CIA
By AMY McRARY
Staff Writer
A protest demonstration is planned by
the N.C. Coalition to Abolish the CIA
when former agency director William
Colby speaks at 7 p.m. today at Memorial
Hall.
Coalition member Steve Squire said
the organization will protest the
"unaccountable activities of an agency
that has overstepped its intended
purposes."
The group was formed three weeks ago
specifically for organizing today's
demonstration. According to Squire,
one-third of the group's members are
UNC students.
"The agency of the CIA has become an
agency of 'dirty tricks,' not an
intelligence-gathering organization," he
said.
"The main thrust of this demonstration
is to educate people about the CIA's
activities. People don't pay attention to
or they just don't care about these
underground actions."
Coalition member Gary Macbeth said,
"Colby was part of CIA abuses which are
continuing today. It is easy for students to
forget about these past activities, such as
the Phoenix Operation."
The Phoenix Operation was part of the
CIA-funded U.S. Pacification Program
in Vietnam. Although the operation's
stated purpose was to neutralize anti
American forces and root out the Viet
Cong, Squire said he believes its actual
function was to arrest, torment, and, in
some cases, assassinate Vietnamese
sympathizers with the Viet Cong.
Today's demonstration will consist of
picketing of Memorial Hall and
distribution of leaflets by members of the
coalition. Squire said the leaflets would
contain details of CIA activities in other
countries.
Members of the coalition believe the
CIA should be abolished because of past
activities like the Phoenix Operation and
the illegal opening of U.S. citizens mail.
Ex-CIA chief Colby
to discuss world order
By NANCY HARTIS
Staff Writer
William E. Colby, former director of the
Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), will
speak at 8 p.m. today in Memorial Hall.
Colby has been described by Sen. Edward
Kennedy, D-Massachusetts, as "the epitome
of the covert man." Colby spent much of his
career as . a clandestine operative and
received much of his early notoriety as a spy.
Prior to his appointment as CIA director
by Richard Nixon in 1973, Colby had been
responsible for the agency's covert
intelligence-gathering activities and its secret
political operations as deputy director of
operations.
It was during his tenure as director that the
CIA experienced a renewed surge of public
demand for reform amid criticism of CIA
involvement in domestic spying and in
Vietnam.
Fired by President Ford iri 1975, Colby
was replaced by George Bush who was a
relative outsider to the CIA.
Colby joined the CIA in 1950 at the
outbreak of the Korean War. His
assignments included stints in Stockholm,
Rome and Vietnam.
As CIA director, Colby tried to channel
more resources into intelligence gathering
and analysis, and cut back on covert actions.
However, he was protective-of what he
considered important CIA objectives and
sought new legislation empowering him to
seek injunctions against publication of
material he considered harmful to
intelligence sources and methods.
Though officially retired, Colby still
comments on international issues. In an
address to Drake University law students
Sunday in Des Moines, Iowa, Colby
assessed the Soviet mood on a new strategic
arms limitations (SALT) with the United
States.

Premature bumper stickers cause
problems for hopeful businessmen
William E. Colby
He said the Soviet Union is eager to
negotiate a new SALT- agreement and
President Carter should capitalize on that
willingness before Soviet leaders revert to a
more traditional, hard-line posture.
Colby's observations came on the eve of
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance's trip to
Moscow which is aimed at improving U.S.
Soviet relations.
Colby will speak tonight on "Conceptual
World Order and Moral Issues." His lecture
is sponsored by the International Affairs
Colloquium and the Union Forum
Committee.
Prematurely printed bumper stickers
proclaiming the UNC Tar Heels 1977
basketball champions are gathering
dust in a warehouse and their owners are
absorbing the loss.
"1 guess we'll eat them," said John
Foushee Jr., owner of the Yogurt Barn
on Franklin Street. Foushee's partner
and. a friend had more than 1,000
bumper stickers and posters printed last
week which said "UNC Tar Heels
1977 NCAA basketball champions."
Foushee said only about $15 to $20
worth of bumper stickers were sold from
a stock that cost several hundred
dollars.
He said the Yogurt Barn found a
bigger seller Monday night after the
game in a frozen yogurt dyed Carolina
blue. "We tried to boost some spirits,"
he said.
Other downtown merchants found
their spirits lifted by the instant
popularity their products brought them.
Hardware-store owners reported selling
out of Carolina blue spray and brush-on
.paint, which was later splotched onto
Chapel Hill's downtown streets.
But the UNC Student Stores have yet
to benefit from the Tar Heels'
tournament success. Assistant Manager
Martin Freed said an order had been
placed for shirts, bumper stickers,
posters and license plates with reference
to the tournament, but the
manufacturer was not start printing
them until Tuesday morning.
If the Tar Heels had won the
championship the paraphernalia would
have been sent air express and been on
sale by today. Although the order was
not canceled, its specifics were changed.
The materials to be sold in the Student
Stores will refer to Carolina as NCAA
finalists.

Tan, don 't burn, in the Carolina sunshine
By LESLIE SCISM
Staff Writer
If you're jealous of those students with Florida tans from
spring break or, if you've already lost yours don't
despair.
The warm sunny weather has come to Chapel Hill, and
with it, those tanning rays. The sun's rays will help you feel
and look your best, but you don't have to go to Florida for a
summer tan. It may take long hours in the sun, but by lying in
the grass outside your dorm or apartment you can get a dark
tan, of a darker one if you've already begun.
The rays are here and the race is on to see who can soak up
more of them. Below are some tips you may find useful if
you're trying to get a tan.
Start gradually. "Don't try to get ail your sun in one day,"
UNC dermatology Prof. W. Mitchell Sams Jr. says. He
suggests a maximum of 30 minutes the first day for fair
skinned, blue-eyed persons, but, he says, darker-skinned
persons can tolerate several hours or more.
Plan sunbathing time between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., the
hours when the sun's rays are strongest. In North Carolina
and surrounding states, the rays, that tan the skin (known as
ultraviolet wavelength B) are not emitted before 9 a.m. or
after 3 p.m. Ultraviolet rays are just now being emitted: they
will increase in intensity until June 23 and fade by late
September, Sams says. (In Florida, on the other hand, strong
radiation is available as early as December.)
If your only free days turn out to be cloudy, don't get
discouraged, Sams says. Water vapor does not screen out
rays, so you can get a bad burn even on cloudy days. When
there is a total cloud cover, at least 50 per cent of ultraviolet
radiation gets through, and on hazy days, almost 100 per
cent. Water in a pool ajso transmits rays, so count swimming
time as part of your exposure.
Nor does the weather have to be hot. Being hot has nothing
to do with burning; in fact you may get less sun on hot days
since the heat may drive you out of the sun to a more
comfortable environment.
Coat on the lotions to prevent sunburn. Lying out without
a sunscreening lotion is one of the surest ways to end up with
red skin. Lotions containing para amino benzoic acid are the
most effective sunscreens, because the acid absorbs much of
the ultraviolet radiation so the skin will not receive it, Sams
says. Baby oil likewise is a sunscreen; it does not attract more
rays as is customarily thought. The same is true of most other
oils.
Once you're tan. you still need a sunscreen. A dark tan
creates a barrier to burning, but overexposure could cause
you to burn through the tan. .
How about an overnight tanning lotion? "It dyes your
skin. It forms a color product with the protein in the skin,"
Sams says. One girl with a tan was asked how she got so dark.
"It's from a bottle." she said. Two days later the tan was gone.
But if you do burn, relief is available. "Mild sunburn
doesn't need a lot of treatment; just avoid further
exposurem" says Clayton E. Wheeler Jr., chairperson of
UNC's dermatology department. He recommends any kind
of lotion or hand cream as treatment. For severe burns'
students are encouraged to come to the dermatology clinic
for treatment with cortisone creams or topical steroids.
