Carolina's defense ends Terrapin reign
of the ACC title with a 16-7 kicking

COLLEGE PARK, Md. Carolina's best offense, it seems, is its
But Saturday against Maryland, the Tar Heels would have taken a
win any way they could get one. The way they took the 1 6-7 win from
the defending Atlantic Coast Conference champions was to intercept
three passes during a crucial stage of the game, stop the tough
Terrapins in a goal-line stand and depend on Tom Biddle to kick
three field goals.
The win for Carolina means more than just a win. It means the
virtual end of a three-year Terrapin grasp on the ACC title and, by
dropping the Terps to a 4-4 season record, will give them their worst
season record since 1972, Jerry Claiborne's first year at College Park.
"It's a great feeling," UNC tackle Dee Hardison said after the
game. "They've come to be king of the hill. They said we'd have to
come up here and take it From them. We had to show them that there
were other teams on the East Coast."
Carolina, now 6-2 on the year and 3-0 in the conference, increases
its chances of being considered for a post-season bowl bid and gives it
a good shot at the conference title as it prepares to meet second-place
Clemson this Saturday.
Carolina's offense, with all the punch of a weary boxer, relied on
the top-ranked Tar Heel defense to stop Maryland and put the team
in a position to score. In fact, had it not been for an intercepted
Carolina pass run back for 63 yards to set up a touchdown, M ary la nd
may not have scored.
With only four and one-half minutes gone in the game, Tar Heel
quarterback Matt Rupee's pass found Maryland halfback Lloyd
Burress standing all alone. Burress ran the ball to the Carolina two
yard line before he was chased down and pushed out of bounds by
tailback Amos Lawrence.
For the rest of the first half, the audience of the regionally-televised
game and the restless fans in the Byrd Stadium stands watched as the
two teams struggled against each other's defense.
"They play that wide tackle six defense," Kupec said. "It's hard for
the quarterback to run around the corner against that defense. They
played the defense wide, and we couldn't get going on offense."
In the second quarter, Carolina's defense showed why it's the No. I
team in the nation in scoring defense. Maryland, leading 7-0.
marched down the field on the running of tailback Alvin Mattoxand
the passing of quarterback Larry Dick. Maryland had four tries to
get into the endone from within the 10-yard line, but fell short when
linebacker Buddy Curry hit tailback George Scott after a one-yard
gain on Carolina's one-yard line.
But in the second half, it was a much different story. Carolina, on
its third possession of the half, moved 63 yards for a touchdown,
which came when Kupec passed to wingback Mel Collins who was
standing wide open near the left sidelines.
On the following kickoff. Terrapin fullback Scott fumbled the ball,
and Carolina's Ken Mack fell on it at the Maryland 1 1. Carolina was
unable to convert the break into a first down or a touchdown and had
to settle for Biddle's first field goal of the afternoon to lead 10-7.
Maryland quarterback Larry Dick, forced to throw to catch up.
began to find some receivers, except they were Carolina defensive
backs. Ricky Barden pulled in the first one and returned it 14 yards.
Carolina's offense moved the ball into field goal range before
sputtering and went ahead 13-7 on a 30-yard Biddle kick. Two plays
later. Dick again was intercepted, this time by Alan Caldwell.
Carolina moved down the field to set up a 25-yard field goal by
"We didn't want to take a chance that would put us out of field goal
range or give them an interception," UNC coach Bill Dooley said of
the team's conservative play inside Maryland's 20-yard line. "If we
kept it inside, we knew we'd get the points. We'd either break it open
for the touchdown or get a pretty sure three points."
Carolina's interceptions came when the secondary knew what
Dick had to do with the ball.

Bus ridership up
No evaluation reached
on impact of advertising
By KEITH HOLLAR
Although use of the town bus system
is up approximately 15 percent over last
year, no evaluation has been made
correlating the increased ridership with
a $6,000 advertising effort.
Establishing a direct cause-and-effect
relationship between advertising and
the 1 5 percent increase in the number of
passengers using the mass-transit
system per vehicle hours of service is
difficult because of several outside
influences, according to Bill Callahan,
administrative assistant for the Chapel
Hill Transportation Department.
Such factors include increased
parking problems and the reduced price
of bus passes the University sells to
students, Callahan said.
"I don't think it's possible to say what
percent of the increase can be attributed
to the marketing effort," he said.
Transportation Direcotr Bob
Godding said his department is
planning to do a limited telephone
survey of bus-pass holders in the next
week to evaluate the effectiveness of the
advertising. But Callahan said no full
scale survey is planned because of high

July and August of this year, the average
rose to 2.3 passengers per vehicle mile
for the same three-month period this
"The increase started really after
school began," Callahan said. "The
trend began with the fall service
Phase one of the advertising
campaign began in mid-August with a
mass-media effort, including
advertisements in the Chapel Hill
Newspaper, Daily Tar Heel and Village
Advocate as well as broadcast spots on
WCHL radio. Advertising expenditures
for phase one reached about $6,000,
Phase two, which runs from mid
October to Dec. 3 1 , will include minimal
use of the media, Callahan said. Instead,
such methods as doorknob hangers will
be used to let people know they live on
bus routes. The phase efforts also will
attempt to reach specific segments of the
community rather than the community
as a whole.
Callahan estimated the cost of phase
two at $2,500.
The primary goals of the first phase,
which ended Oct. 15, were to improve
the image and raise the 'commuter's
awareness of the transit system and to
"Many people have the impression
that the bus system is only for people
who don't have any other way to get
around," Godding said.
"We hoped to get them (local
commuters) before they established
their transportation patterns," Callahan

achieved all three goals," said David

on use of water
Voluntary conservation urged
" By STEPHEN HARRIS
After 94 days of dusty cars and empty swimming pools, the mandatory water
restrictions in Chapel Hill and Carrboro ended Friday.
Chapel Hill Mayor Jim Wallace and Carrboro Mayor Pro Tern Braxton Foushee
ended restrictions at noon Friday, following a request by the Orange Water and
Sewer Authority (OWASA) Thursday night.
The restrictions prohibited watering lawns, washing cars, serving water in
restaurants unless requested, filling swimming pools and running decorative water
OWASA requested the move after University Lake rose above water
conservation levels Thursday.
However, OWASA and the towns still ask for voluntary conservation.
"We have left in effect a request for voluntary conservation," Everett Billingsley,
executive director of OWASA, said Sunday. "We are moving now with cautious
Billingsley said the towns have enough water to last through December if there is
no additional rainfall. University Lake was 29'$ inches below full Sunday, the
highest level since June.
"First, I want to express appreciation for the cooperation of the student body
(during the water shortage)," Billingsley said.
"Second-, we hope that people will have sufficient water for a comfortable
lifestyle," he added, "but not waste it. We hope people will still be aware of a need to
Billingsley said heavy consumption without a continuation of recent rains could
cause University Lake to begin dropping again.
University Lake has risen 384 inches in October. The increase is due to
abnormally high rainfall.
Restrictions were lifted 46 days earlier than in 1976, though University Lake
dipped lower this year than last. Restrictions in 1976 lasted until Dec. 12.
Phase three guidelines, calling for severe mandatory water restrictions, began
With the end of this year's restrictions, OWASA will now begin planning to meet

Carolina's smallest frat offers
life without khakis, Topsiders
By DAVID CRAFT
If it weren't for the sign in the front yard, anyone
driving along N.C. 86 toward Hillsborough could pass
right by the gray ranch house without realizing that it
was a fraternity house.
The house does not resemble the familiar colonial
mansions or contemporary houses. It sits in a grove of
pine trees about four miles out of town. Five acres of
woods surround the house.
To the brothers of Phi Kappa Sigma, the house
represents a lifestyle much different from other
fraternities. "We're just a few guys getting together to
have a good time," said Dave Doughton. "When I
started looking at fraternities last spring, 1 was turned
off by the so-called 'fratty baggers.' I wanted something
Bob Brubaker, president of the chapter, wanted out
of the dormitory but did not want to join a "typical"
fraternity. "I thought at the time that all Greeks wore
short hair, khakis and top-siders. I learned later that this
was a false impression, but I was still impressed by what
I saw here.
"In this fraternity, there are no stereotypes. The guys
do whatever they want. Some like to study and some

Because the house is located away from campus, new
members are hard to come by. "It takes a certain kind of
guy to come out here during rush and to keep coming
back," Brubaker said. "Mostly it's people we already
know that pledge."
"The national office doesn't like for us to only induct
people we already know," Brubaker said, "But it seems
to work out pretty well."
The fire forced the brothers into temporary quarters.
"We moved into a house on McCauley Street for a
year," Doughton said. "Then we found this place. A
chemistry professor used to own it. He even had a little
lab set up behind the house. We use it for storage now."
