s s what Carolina-State
rivalry is really all about?
There's not a thing in the world wrong
with yelling "Go to Hell State" at the end of
the school fight song. Carolina students have
shouted it so many times over the course of
football and basketball seasons that the
slogan is automatic; folks yell it without even
thinking about it.
There's also nothing wrong with
displaying stickers that show one's pride in
his school ("If God's not a Tar Heel why's the
sky Carolina Blue) or that poke fun at a rival
school (Honk if you're from Carolina, Moo
if yall fum State").
But when you start seeing stickers that
advise teaching small children to "Hate
State," things have gone a little too far. And
maybe it's time we all took a long, hard look
at a situation that advocates and even
promotes such slogans.
The Carolina-State rivalry is in the vein of
such heated relationships as Harvard-Yale,
USC-UCLA, Michigan-Ohio State, and
Indiana-Purdue. Ask any player on an
athletic team to look down the team's
schedule and pick out the school he'd most
like to beat, and the answer probably would
be the same as him teammates'. At Carolina,
the big one is N.C. State University.
And that's fine. As Tar Heel Head
Football Coach Bill Dooley said last week,
"This is what college football is all about."
It's good to have a game that generates a
little extra attention, that makes the fans a
little more excited, that make the players
work a little harder in preparing for.
But why can't we play the Wolfpack a
game of clean, hard football or basketball or
tiddly-winks and then shake their hands and
go have a couple of beers?
Why, for God's sake, must we hate State?
These new bastions of poor taste went on
sale Monday in the UNC Student Stores and
various other locations in town. James
Jennings, owner of Triangle Advertising,
explained that a private individual
contracted the agency to have the stickers
manufactured and distributed across town.
Jennings said that his company will accept
almost anything unless it's "obviously
"You can't really tell someone what's
tasteful," Jennings said. "It's a matter of
personal opinion. For instance, we showed
the 'If God's not a Tar Heel' stickers to one
merchant who said 'this makes me sick at my
stomach.' You just never can tell how people
Tom Shetley, Student Stores manager,
finds nothing wrong with the stickers.
"If this was anything except a situation of
a college rivalry, if it was hate your neighbor
or hate blacks or hate Indians, it would be
reprehensible," Shetley said. "But that's not
what this means. It's a stab at humor. It's
passable. It's college humor. Besides, it's
nearly impossible to teach a kid to hate State
or to hate anything."
Really? So why do racial slurs roll of the
tongues of small children so easily? Why do
small children dislike children of other
religious background? Most likely because
they've been trained, through constant
exposure to their parents' prejudices. Eyes
and ears are standard equipment for new
born babies. Hatred is not.
As for the bit about humor, jokes of this
kind aren't even worthy of today's network
comedy shows. And that's not saying much.
UNC Athletic Director BillCobey got his
first look at the "Hate" sticker Monday
afternoon. He was clearly dismayed.
"We try to work against this attitude,
public display of it or otherwise," he said. "I
certainly don't have any feeling like that. I
think the vast majority of people joke about
State and Duke and Wake Forest as much as
anything else. Hate is a pretty strong word.
"This is certainly going to create a lot of
hard feelings," Cobey said.
But it doesn't have to. Because just as a
loss to an archrival dampens a school's spirit
for a while, commercial losses could kill this
expression of hatred.
Carolina has long prided itself on its
abundance of "class." But if several
thousand "H ate" sticker find their way to the
bumpers of cars traveling across the state.
North Carolinians will indeed realize that
UNC has lots of class. Third class.
Women's golf meets Duke again
The UNC women's golf team will meet
Duke for the fourth time this season at 12:30
p.m. today at Duke.
The Heels first topped the Blue Devils en
route to winning the Duke Invitational on
Sept. 16. Carolina shot past Duke by 22
strokes on Sept. 27 in the only dual meeting
yet. In the N.C. Association of
intercollegiate Athletics for Women
(AIAW) State Tournament held Oct. 6 and 7
in Boone the Tar Heels finished, Duke
Although Carolina takes a 4-0 record into
the match, coach Dot Gunnells is wary. Rain
put a damper on practice throughout the
week. "A couple of days a few of the girls got
to hit some balls, but that's it," she said.
Gunnells is also anticipating a tighter
match than the last dual match. "It will be a
lot closer than that this time," she said.
Stephanie Kornegay will lead the first
team composed of Janet Haire, Susan Cary,
Cathy Graham and Maureen Long. The
second team will be Bonnie Bell, Brenda
Rich, Kathy Coelle and Laura Strippel.

"If we play well, we have a good chance of winning," she said.
M iller said the team's play in the Florida State Invitational Tournament was an example of
the kind of match they will have to play to win against Duke.
"We really played well in the tournament," she said. "1 hope we will play as well because if
we do, I think we'll beat Duke.
"The tournament gave us confidence. We played well against high caliber teams. I think it
will give us confidence against the rest of the teams on our schedule," Miller said.

While the I'SC football team was
concerned with winning games this fall,
winning games was not the most important
matter lor coach Mike Roberts and the Tar
Heels during their first fall schedule.
Roberts, in his first year as Carolina
baseball coach said the fall schedule was a
good opportunity for the team to work on
things in real game situations. The fall games
were "exhibition games" of a sort, because
the results do not count in NCAA standings.
The atmosphere at the ballgamcs was
relaxed, but Carolina did have goals in mind.
The lar Heels concentrated on running
the bases on offense, and defensively,
Roberts stressed plays such as the pickoff.
Playing time was divided among the team
members, and the pitching staff got game
experience in a couple of innings per outing.
Carolina won more games than they lost
in the schedule of doublcheaders, including
three sweeps in a row over Wingate, Pfeiffer
and UNC-Wilmington. The Heels did not
lace any other ACC team and Roberts said
other league membeis did not play a full
schedule like Carolina.
Three freshmen pitchers, Charley Beverly.
Bill Musser and Peanut Parks split time on
the mound, and returnees Clay Johnson and
Monty DeRatt pitched well. Hitting punch
was supplied throughout the baiting order,
but third baseman Jim Atkinson showed
power al hat. and Roy Clark and Mike l oix
hit for good averages. Clark is one of two
junior college transfers. He came from
I en urn Junior College, while Dave Harnett
joined the team from Seminole College in
I To rid a.
Roberts said the Tar Heels are a "cohesive
team" alter seeing them in action for 20
games, and this pleases him in his first
"lam looking forward to the spring season
very much. This is a great opportunity for me
to teach and coach baseball. Carolina has a
w inning tradition, and I'm lookinig forward
to doing my best," Roberts said.
"It's just a great opportunity for me."
Roberts said. Roberts hopes to create a new
image for UNC baseball, with the "most
hustling" team around. Carolina will be
wearing new uniforms, and in the hopes of
drawing more townspeople, there will be
more night games in Boshamer Stadium.
Carolina must wait over three months
before starting regular season play, and it
still will be winter when the first ball is
pitched on F eb. 24. starting a slate of 52
games, no! including the ACC tournament.
1 he NCAA schedule includes games with
some of the outstanding teams in the
country. On a 10-day spring trip. Carolina
v ill face competition like Oklahoma Slate
and Pan-American University. Closer to
home, the Heels will face South Carolina
and Clemson, who finished second and fifth
respectively in the country last year.
In the ACC, Roberts views the race as a
five-team battle. N.C State, Wake Forest
and Maryland are very good. Roberts said.
With a successful fall schedule behind
them, the Tar Heel baseballeis must wait
until February for the regular season to
begin. 1 hen the games will be for keeps, and
winning will be the prime goal lor coach
Mike Roberts and the UNC team.
Clemson ranked No. 19
Clemson, with a 5-1 record, is ranked No.
19 in the United Press International
Coaches' Top 20 this week.
The Tigers, under first-year head coach
Charley Pell, have posted w ins over Georgia,
Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, Virginia and
Duke while losing their season opener to
ACC defending champion Maryland.
Carolina hosts Clemson Nov. 5.
Michigan was ranked No. I by the
coacheds, followed by lexas, Alabama,
Southern California and Ohio State.
John West, athletic director at Fuiman
U niversity, will be guest speaker at a meeting
of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at
7:30 tonight. Athletes and nonathletes are
