Tar Heels face
Oregon State's basketball team must be a
glutton for punishment.
First, they play top-ranked Carolina
Saturday 3,000 miles from home before a
partisan Carolina crowd in Charlotte and
lose by 31 points. Then, they stop by
Winston-Salem and play surprisingly tough
Wake Forest, and lose by 20 points.
And at 8 p.m today in Carmichael
Auditorium, the Beavers again play
Carolina. The Tar Heels still will work to
overcome the problems that accompany
early season play, such as adjusting to new
lineups and new plans.
Carolina probably again will go with the
lineup of Phil Ford and Tom Zaliagiris in the
backcourt, and Dudley Bradley, Mike
O'Koren and Rich Yonakor in the front
court. One of the problems Carolina faces
this season is lack of domination on the
boards, and the Tar Heels won't have a
chance to work on it since Oregon State's big
man, 6-foot-10 Steve Johnson, is out
indefinitely with a broken leg.
Carolina's defense showed the effects of
long hours of work in the opening gane
against the Beavers. Steals, interceptions
and defensive rebounding allowed the Tar
Heels to run off 18 unanswered points at the
end of the first half of that game to pull from
three points down to 15 points ahead at the
The game tonight is a prelude for Carolina
to the Big Four Tournament which begins
Friday with the Tar Heels facing Duke.

to poor play on the part of her defense.

Widespread participation cited as key to fraternity's intramural success
Fraternities and intramurals. Both are popular on the Carolina campus. I here
are 29 fraternities and the UNC intramural program attracts participants from all
ranks of the University, including the fraternities, a spirited part of Carolina
Intrafraternity Council (IFC) Executive Vice President Tom Terrell said the IFC
does not maintain a set "view" on intramural activity, but Terrell said he personally
thinks intramurals are an important part of fraternity living.
"Intramurals do have their place in the fraternity system," Terrell said. "They are
a way of providing recreation, athletics, and fellowship for the brothers. And many
fraternity brothers do get involved with intramurals."
Terrell has participated in Carolina intramurals both for a residence hall and for
the fraternity he now belongs to, Chi Psi. He said intramural competition is more
serious on the dorm level.
"Fraternities enjoy playing each other in the intramural team events especially,"
Terrell said. "The attitudes among fraternity brothers during competition is
sportsmanlike. There are seldom any hard feelings because of the outcome of a
But there are differing opinions about how competitive fraternity intramural play
Willy Gray, Pi Kappa Phi intramural chairperson, said he believes play should be
fairly competitive, because athletics bring out the competive instinct in people, and
that it is only natural to get keyed or psyched up before an important contest.'
"Games can get kind of rough sometimes," Gray said. Carolina tag football, he
said, sometimes turns into a slightly rougher adventure than just tagging your
opponent. But, Gray added, the brothers like the competitive angle of intramural
activity. .. ,
The in trarnrai office stresses participation over competition this year, and Gray
admitted that both are needed but said "people do like to win." C-ray said he thinks if
there were not a competitive aspect in intramurals there would be a decline in
By BILL FIELDS
Gray's job as intramural chairperson for the Pi Kaps is more important than
some believe. Like the dorm 1M managers, Gray must coordinate the participation
of approximately 70 Pi Kap brothers and pledges. Gray has to find out who wants to
play in the various 1M sports, and then decide who will comprise the different teams
the house will field.
Because of their intramural success this yeaj with championships in fraternity
and All Campus tag football and the fraternity track meet, the Pi Kaps generally are
regarded on top in the fraternity intramural scene this year. Participation by many
of the brothers is one key to their success.
"We get around 90 percent of the house involved in one intramural activity or
another," Gray said. "Around 50 percent of the Pi Kaps are some of your better
athletes. Several brothers play intercollegiate sports for UNC, while many
participated in athletics for their high school."
The Pi Kaps take pride in their intramural success, and after the triumphs in
football and track this fall, the pride has increased. But Gray does remember last
year when the Pi Kaps were in the lead but lost the overall IM championship
because of a slip up in scheduling.
"We were leading going into the gold event which took place in the spring," said
Gray, a senior. "But we had a schedule mixup in the house, and we didn't score
many points and lost the title."
Intramurals are a drawing card for the Pi Kaps as they try to get pledges. Gray
said the intramural program is not really bragged about, but that pledges are told
the Pi Kaps do participate strongly in intramurals. "They know that we do have a
good intramural program," Gray said.

Because the value of every diamond is
determined by four characteristics (cut, color,
clarity and carat weight), you can always use
these qualities to your best advantage.
Perhaps you're attracted by the grandeur
of a large diamond. Well, sometimes a large
stone can cost the same as a smaller one.
Simply because it has a little more color. Or a
delicate birthmark hidden inside.
, On the other hand, you may feel size isn't
the most important quality. Then you could
choose a diamond that's small, but perfectly
cut to sparkle with an icy-white elegance.
In any case, you'll be able to find one to
suit your personality. Because each one
is an individual, with its own combination of
characteristics. And you can use these
qualities any way you wish, to help you decide
what's precisely right for you.

problem with too many brothers w ho want to get on a team that is participating in a
major intramural sport. But Gray and George l.ee, DU intramural chairperson,
solve the problem by entering a "strong" team along with teams that include other
brothers in the fraternity. Pi Kappa Phi has dubbed one of its other teams, "The
"The Wheaties go out to the events and have a good time," Gray said. "These
brothers are not bad athletes, but they might be a little smaller in size than our top
team in a sport like basketball."
Lee said Delta U psilon does not approach intramurals very seriously. "We go out
and have fun and a good time. If we do win something big it might call for a
celebration of some kind. We don't practice very much."
Lee said any practice in the DU house is informal, with brothers getting together
for pickup games in the gym or elsew here. Gray said his fraternity does not practice
"Practice doesn't help that much in a sport like Carolina tag football, which is
largely an innovative game," he said. "And for the other sports we usually don't
have much time. When one activity is over with we just move on to the next one on
the intramural schedule."
Until this year, fraternities had a point system which determined the overall
champion for the intramural year. In the early '70s the IFC handled the point
system. Last year, the UNC intramural office took care of the tallying until the
spring, when the 1M department announced the point tabulating would be
delegated to the IFC.
This year, the IFC formed a committee to study the setup of a possible point
system. A meeting was held last Monday to study the structure of a point system.
Terrell said the point system was valuable as far as keeping the fraternities
informed about who was leading the intramural competition. He said it did help his
fraternity last year by providing a focus for competing. But Terrell said the
intramural system could function without counting up points.
"The intramural program and the fraternities would be okay without a point
system," Terrell said. "Fraternity brothers would still enter the events."
Intramural Director Ed Shields said there is no difference in the intensity of
competition for the top teams in both dormitory and fraternity divisions.
"With the top few teams in both divisions the spirit and intensity is equal," Shields
said. "But the fraternity group probably has more teams that participate strongly."
Another difference between dorm and frat participation is the number of
spectators that come to the events.
"The fraternities do have more of a spectator following than the residence halls,
and for a sport like wrestling or basketball, having many spectators helps the
participants," Shields said.
