As much as 2 years
By EDDIE MARKS
The proposed South Campus Union,
originally scheduled for completion in spring
1978, may be delayed by as much as two
years, Dean of Student Affairs Donald A.
Boulton said last week.
Boulton blamed budget problems for the
delay. Bids for the renovations to Chase
Hall,-where the new Union is to be located,
greatly exceeded original estimates, he said.
Gordon Rutherford, director of the
planning office, said $600,000 had been
allocated for the project. He said final bids
Original plans called for the second floor,
Servomation-Mathias Inc. cafeteria to be
relocated on the first floor of Chase with the
Union to be located in 5,400 square feet of
space upstairs. The renovations were to have
been completed this summer to avoid
disrupting food services.
But budget delays left no time for the work
to be completed before students returned,
Boultong said. Chase Hall will remain
unchanged until at least next summer, he
Boulton said he hopes many Union
services not requiring special equipment or
facilities can be held in the South Campus
Eric Locher, U nion president, said movies
and videotape programs already are
scheduled for the South Campus dorms.
Other possibilities for South Campus
activities, he said, are Union-sponsored
dances and receptions for speakers.
Charlie Kummel, governor of
Ehringhaus, said he believes the bids were
high due to the short length of time allowed
for the renovations.
Kummel was a member of the committee
that formulated plans for the new Union last
year. Fucilities proposed by the committee
for the Chase Hall project include an
information desk, ticket-purchasing and
check-cashing services, a television room, a
game room, meeting rooms and copy
Nan Parati, president of Hinton James,
said the delay would not hamper many of the
South Campus activities. Plans are already
underway, she said, for a South Campus
week in March will include such things as a
medieval-style jousting match.
Steve Verganini, president of Craige, said
he felt let down after the hard planning that
went into the project but hopes to form "a
strong association without the physical
Nick Long, chairman of the Union's
South Campus Committee, said the South
Campus Union is needed to coordinate
activities and programming on South
Campus. He said the delay is unfortunate
but hopes it may eventually allow the Union
more space in Chase Hall.
Long stressed that the South Campus
Union is not intended to replace the original
Union, but to complement it. He said he
wants to avoid "the image some people have
that South Campus is UNC-Pittsboro."
Tough defensive struggle to highlight
Tar Heel-Wildcat Peach Bowl rematch
By GENE UPCHURCH
North Carolina's football team could take
a cloud with it when it runs into Kentucky's
Commonwealth Stadium Saturday.
The rain that fell over Chapel Hill most of
the day Thursday is supposed to move
toward Lexington, and the folks there said
they are looking for rain Saturday. But the
players on Carolina's team would love
nothing more than to be another kind of
cloud to blow into bluegrass country a
cloud in the form of a defeat over Kentucky
in this year's football opener.
Many people expect to see a remake of the
Peach Bowl, with similar results a 21-0
shutout by Kentucky. But there will be a big
difference in both teams. '
The game will feature unforgiving
defenses, with the result most likely a low
scoring game and inexperienced offensive
lines coming off both benches. Potentially
dangerous offenses on both sides will find
the going rough because their lines will not
have worked together long enough and
because of defenses which will capitalize on
this inexperience and any mistakes that are

Senate ratification of the recently signed
Panama Canal treaty may be in jeopardy if
the positions of Sens. Jesse Helms. R-NC,
and Robert Morgan, D-NC, reflect the
sentiments of the entire U.S. Senate.
Morgan is reserving judgment on the issue
despite a lobbying effort by President Carter
Wednesday, while Helms has emerged as one
of the chief opponents of the treaty.
"The Senator thinks it is premature to
make a decision on the treaty until some
points are clarified," said Alfred Pollard,
Morgan's legal counsel.
Pollard said the senator was particularly
concerned about the U.S. role in the defense
of the canal after the year 2000 and the
provisions concerning U.S. cession of lands
"After 2000 can we go into Panama to
defend the canal?" he asked. "Do the
Panamanians realize that our decision on
cession may be to give up no land at all
before 200O? If not, we have some serious
reservations about it (the treaty)."
Morgan believes that a modification of
linebackers Mike Martin and Jim Kovach.
Martin was the defensive Most Valuable
Player for the Peach Bowl, mainly because
he had 11 tackles, thiee assists, two tackles
for losses, one quarterback sack and a "big
hit." Kovach led the team in tackles last year
for the second straight year.
But Kentucky, coming off a 7-4 season last
year, its third winning season since 1960, has
an offensive backfield that should be able to
propel the team to another winning season.
Kentucky will not go to another bowl game
this year even if they do haveagood year
because the team is on a two-year probation
by the NCAA for recruiting violations.
Derrick Ramsey at quarterback and Rod
Stewart at fullback provide the punch for the
wishbone offense run by the Wildcats.
Stewait personally scored all three
touchdowns against Carolina in the Peach
Bowl and picked up 104 yards in that game
rushing, while averaging 64 yards per game
during the season. Ramsey had a sub-par
game against Carolina in December: he
picked up only 30 yards rushing, down from
his average of 70 yards rushing per game.
Additional wallop from the Wildcat
backfield comes from running backs Chris
Hill and Randy Brooks.
The potential for an explosive Wildcat
offense is there, but the team suffers the same
ailment that Carolina suffers: a young,
inexperienced offensive line. Kentucky lost
four players off its offensive line, including
Warren Bryant, who was named to several
All-America teams. Juniors and seniors are
moving up to fill the voids and should play

Pollard said, but there is some support for

opposition to the treaty based on the

4 inches of liquid delight
raises lake 16.5 inches
By KEITH HOLLAR
A thirsty Chapel Hill got a taste of wet
relief Wednesday and Thursday as
intermittent showers dumped 4.17 inches of
rain on the area by 7 p.m. Thursday, raising
the level of University Lake 16.5 inches.
The rains, which began about 9 p.m.
Wednesday and lasted throughout the day
Thursday, raised the level of Chapel Hill's
only reservoir from 82.5 inches below
capacity to 66 inches below capacity by 4:30
The level of University Lake on Sept. 10.
1976 was 61.5 inches below capacity during
drought conditions then.
"Most of the inlets are flowing very, very
well." an employee at University Lake said
Thursday afternoon. "I think it will be very
much better by Friday because there's so
much water still on the ground."
But Everett Billingsley, executive director
opposed to giving away the canal and paying
them to take it." Fuller said.
Helms believes that if the vote were taken
today, the opponents could block
ratification of the treaty. Fuller said. The
press secretary pointed out that last year 39
senators voted for a resolution against giving
up the canal. Only 34 votes are needed to
prevent passage of the treaty.
Both Fuller and Pollard believe that
Senate debate on the treaty will not begin for
"Sen. (John) Sparkman. chairperson of
the Armed Services Committee, said that it
won't come to the floor until spring, and I
don't think Carter wants it there yet."
Pollard said. "He got burned before by not
consulting (House Speaker) Tip O'Neill
about congressional actions."
Before the treaty reaches the Senate floor,
it will have to be cleared through at least the
Foreign Relations and Armed Services
committees. Poliard said. He added that
other Senate committees may act upon the
agreement and the House of Representatives
might vote on the treaty, because any cession

The Heels lost six starters from last

Durham's Division of Water Resources, said
Durham has been taking a closer look at the
Lake Michie water level, resulting in an
agreement to sell approximately one million
gallons per day less to Chapel Hill (see

Durham had not reached the point of
mandatory conservation before the rain, but
Lake Michie's water level is about three and

drought conditions last year, Rolan said.

Chapel Hill since the beginning of the
summer is the result of subnormal rainfall
since June, according to Billingsley. He said
that prior to the rains Thursday. Chapel H ill

year, which he said is about eight Inches less
"But it's not so much the quantity of
water, but the distribution of it," he said.

between the area's subnormal rainfall and
