The Tar Heels again face Oregon State at 8
p.m. Wednesday inCarmichael Auditorium.
The 94-63 win over the Beavers Saturday
was expected by nearly everyone, so most
observers spent the game searching for a clue
that would tell who will fill the void left by
the graduation of three seniors who started
last year in Carolina's climb to the No. 2 spot
in the nation.
Phil Ford and M ike O'Koren, who carried
much of the load last year, responded to the
added responsibility with a glide and a
growl. Ford glided down the lane to 20
points and led the game with seven assists.
He showed the leadership he says he will
have to assume in his senior year and looked
as though he could have scored 40 points if
he needed to.
"He was almost too unselfish," UNC
Coach Dean Smith said of Ford's nine shots
in the game.
O'Koren rumbled down the endlines for
21 points, muscling past OSU defenders and
showing little, if any, pain from a hip-pointer
he suffered last week against the
Czechoslovakian National Team.
Oregon State played Carolina evenly
through most of the first half of the game and
led with just under six minutes to play.

SG to oppose deck addition
to South Campus parking lot
By STEPHEN HARRIS
Student Government (SG) is
organizing opposition to the
proposed addition to the South
Campus parking deck, according to
Transportation Director Paul Arne.
SG officials are planning to
present their arguments to the UNC
Board of Trustees. The board has
already approved the proposed deck
but has not awarded contracts for the
More bus service and additional
fringe parking would cost less than
the proposed parking deck and serve
the same purpose, Arne said.
Arne said a fringe parking lot
would cost less than $ 1 ,000 per space.
He added the Carrboro bus route
eliminates the need for 500 spaces
and costs only $44,000 per year.
CGC approves much-debated $2.50
student-fee increase,casting 14-3 vote
By ROBERT THOMASON
The Campus Governing Council last
week approved the much debated
student fee increase by a 14-3 vote.
"1 was surprised with the results of the
referendum," said CGC member Darius
Moss, before he cast an affirmative vote
for the increase. Moss said that he
personally felt a $2.50 increase was too
large, but that the referendum showed
student support for the increase.
Bruce Tindall contended that a
referendum with only a 17 percent
electorate turnout did not mandate a fee
increase. Tindall, along with Glenn
Peck and David Hackleman, voted
against the increase.
"It is possible that the increase could
be enacted before next semester,"
Student Government President Bill
Moss said. Moss has campaigned for the
increase over the last few months and
voted for the increase at the meeting.
The fee increase now must receive the

The proposed addition would cost
$3,300 per space, under the plan
approved by the trustees.
Student money would help finance

project would be funded through
bond monies and the University's
parking fund. The parking fund is
composed of funds derived from
traffic and parking fines.

White-dominated culture at UNC
Most students ignore
By DAVID WATTERS
Editor's Note: This is the first in a series of
articles examining race relations on the UNC
Evidence of racial tensions on the UNC
campus occasionally appears. A Ku Klux
Klansman speaking on campus was hissed
and booed by a group of blacks in 1975. That
same year, the shouts of black students
protesting the freezing of Black Student
M ovement funds echoed throughout the Pit.
Sign-carrying black students lined the walls
of Memorial Hall during the sacred
University Day ceremonies this year.
Responding to black concerns, University
officials this year appointed a black man as a
special assistant to the chancellor on race
relations and formed a committee to study
relations between black students and white
faculty. Student Government (SG)
attempted to organize a conference to
discuss black-white interaction.
Despite these official acknowledgements
of racial tensions, most UNC students either
UNC was underway. Moss suggested
that a special time, perhaps in mid
February, be set aside for students to
consult with their advisers before
declaring a major.
A study of alternate ways of
allocating student fees will be ready
around Feb. 10, said Gus LeHouck,
chairperson of the CGC's special
committee on budget allocation.
Hearings will be held on the subject
early next semester.

WXYC chief, headofSEB
resign in late-night session;
cite other demands on time
By KATHY HART
The problems surrounding WXYC
continued last week as Paul Matthews,
interim station manager, and Mike Hyman,
chairperson of Student Educational
Broadcasting (SEB), submitted their
resignations to the SEB executive committee
just after midnight Tuesday.
The resignations were accepted
immediately by the committee, which can
function as the governing body for' the
station but is under review by the SEB. A
new interim station manager was appointed
at 12:25 Wednesday morning.
Matthews had been interim station chief
since Nov. 16, when Don Moore resigned
from the position after the SEB failed to
comply with his request that Hyman and
David Madison, SEB treasurer, be fired.
Hyman had been chairman of SEB since
early this semester. According to Matthews,
both resigned so they could spend more time
at their jobs at WCHL.
"I was offered a better job, and 1 took it. 1
had to set where my loyalties were. The job
WCHL gave me as interim chief engineer is a
full-time job. My resignation had nothing to
do with the recent controversy over the

Several residents of Winston Dorm who returned to their rooms

now keep the ice cream in the bathroom."
The northern side of Winston the side with the bathrooms
had been without heat since last week before the heat was turned on
about 4 p.m. Sunday.
And when the mercury began to fall near the middle of the week,
the residents on that side of the dorm knew it.

McLaughlin said. "I stayed up Tuesday night to type. It got pretty

"Now, the only time we think about race
relations is specific issues, like the Avery
incident case," said Harold Wallace, Student
Affairs' director of special projects.
A recent survey of 250 North Campus
residents by CGC representative Bob Long
helps substantiate Wallace's opinion.
Eighty-seven percent of the respondents said
they do not believe race relations are a
serious problem at UNC.
But the Division of Student Affairs and
Student Government consider race relations
one of the foremost campus problems and
scheduled a weekend conference of black
and white administrators, teachers and
students to discuss what can be done to
improve the racial climate here.
Apparently, plans for the conference have
been scrapped for this year. The race
relations discussion, which was scheduled
for Nov. 28 through 30, was originally
cancelled because of time conflicts with the

until tfiecntire board meets Monday night to
select a new interim station manager. That
interim station manager w ill serve until Jan.

SEB w ill submit recommendations for a full

Oates. however, is serving with the
approval of only three of the SEB executive
committee's five members and without the
approval of the full board.
Before resigning, Matthews and Hyman
along with board member Darius Moss
voted Oates in as interim chief. Executive
committee members David Madison and
Jim Srcbro were not present at the meeting,
which took place at 12:10 a.m. in Moss'
Moss said that because so few members
were present, and that the executive
committee's actions must be reviewed by the
SEB, Oates was only instated for five days.
It also was learned that a 32-page report
asking for the resignation or dismissal of
Hyman and Madison will be presented to
SEB members Monday.
Black and white leaders disagreed over the
source of the scheduling problems and
attempts to reschedule the conference began
to bog down. Finally last week, the
conference's planning committee threw in

The committee intends to continue to
push for the dismissal of Madison even
though Hyman has resigned, Frost said.
"We have a petition asking for Hyman's
and Madison's dismissal by XYC staff
members," Frost said. 'There are also other
pieces of evidence which 1 can't disclose now
that will call for the removal of Madison for
the future good of the station and the SEB."
Oates reinstated disc jockeys Derek Frost
and Michael Ridge, whom Matthews fired
last Monday, Nov. 22.
"They are good jocks" Oates said. "They
took the initiative to keep the station on the
air all of Tuesday night and worked during
the Thanksgiving holidays.
"The atmosphere at XYC is one of
optimism now," Oates said. "The jocks are
happier now that the resignations have
occurred, and no one is upset."

that Robbie Crosswhite, a former WXYC
station manager, will be appointed as the

previously mild November. With the sub-freezing temperatures, in
many areas came snow and gusty winds.
The temperature was 6 degrees at 5 p.m. Saturday at Grandfather
M ountain, with winds gusting up to 50 miles per hour. The area also
received four inches of snow.
Snow Hurries and temperatures hovering around freezing
prevailed across the Piedmont Saturday, but the gusty winds which
accompanied the cold Saturday, had subsided by Sunday. High
temperatures Sunday were only in the 30s and 40s.
Even though the mercury crept back up to 47 degrees Sunday in
Chapel Hill, the prospect of facing the night without heat was not
appealing to chilled Winston residents.

school in a white-dominated culture, there
are many racial tensions and problems.
There have been several stages of relations
between blacks and whites since blacks first ,
enrolled at UNC. According to Wallace, the
first stage was in the 1950s and 1960s, when
there were so few black students at UNC that
little was done concerning race relations.
"But when blacks began coming to UNC
in significant numbers in the late 1960s, there
wete some attempts to discuss problems of
blacks at predominantly white schools,"
Wallace said. "Unfortunately, in the past few
years, people have stopped talking about the
Wallace said that race relations are now at
a stage where a sufficient number of people
in the administration and in the student body
admit race relations are a problem at UNC.
"What we have to do now is assess the
problems and determine where we go from
here," he said.
