Bar your doors, shutter your windows.
Mothers, toss your kids in the cellar and
throw away the key. And you ACC
coaches better start making plane reserva
tions for Anywhere, USA, because Lefty
Driesell is mad, fighting mad, and it looks
like no one is safe.
Ask Dean Smith. After Jim Braddock
popped in a just-over-the-line three-point
shot with :09 left on the clock to put the
Tar Heels ahead for good 72-71, after all
the timeouts to set up the last Maryland
play, a play that ended with Sam Perkins ,
and Michael Jordan holding the ball, after
all the confusion that a last-minute win at
Carmichael Auditorium brings Lefty
Driesell was mad.
So mad, in fact, that when Smith
walked over to shake the distracted
Driesell's hand, Driesell turned and shoved
Smith's hand away, causing UNC assistant
coach Bill Guthridge to go to Smith's aid,
causing UNC Sports Information Director
Rick Brewer to emerge from the crowd
and pull Guthridge away, causing dozens
of post-game questions about an incident
that's sure to be blown into ACC legend.
Smith:" "I guess he didn't want to
Driesell: "Well, that's between him and
me. I had to shake his hand he came
sprinting at me."
First Driesell was angry on Saturday at
Terry Holland, the University of Virginia,
Ralph Sampson, and various referees for
what he thought was slack officiating on
some foul play.
Wednesday, it was a different game, a
different place, but the same Driesell.
After the Terrapins' Herman Veal
grabbed Adrian Branch's pass underneath
and banked it in to put Maryland ahead
71-69 with 30 seconds left in the game,
Braddock took Buzz Peterson's pass on
the left side of the top-of-the-key, checked
his feet to insure that they were jumping
from three-point territory, and launched
himself toward the basket. He pumped
once, and then let it go.
"I thought it would go in after I shot
it," Braddock said.
It did, and when all the timeout smoke
cleared, the Terrapins set up with five
seconds left, worked the ball to Driesell's
son Chuck who dribbled down the
baseline and pulled up to shoot to find
both Jordan's and Perkins' hands on the
The clock ran out for everybody but
"I think there were a couple of seconds
left on the clock," Diesell said. "When
you play on the road, you're fighting the
refs and you're fighting the timers. When
they come to Cole Fieldhouse, the same
thing's gonna happen we'll cut the
clock off on them."
In the first half, Maryland cut off the in
side to the Tar Heels, forcing the ball out
to Peterson, Braddock, and Matt Doher
ty. North Carolina took over half of its
first-half shots from beyond the three
point mark, converting on 6-of-15, while
the Terrapins' Ben Coleman continually
powered his way to the basket. Coleman
finished with 20 points and 12 rebounds to
lead in both categories.
But it wasn't enough to hold off North
"I thought there were two seconds left
on the clock, but I'm not going to cry,"
Maryland point guard Jeff Adkins said.
"They always win games like that."

The quest for funding of the Student
Government Spring Concert has taken yet
another turn this time away from the
In a special meeting called at the request
of Student Body President Mike Vanden
bergh, the Campus Governing Council
Finance Committee passed a bill to
allocate $100,000 for the benefit concert.
The bill still must be approved by the full
CGC at a special meeting scheduled for
Before the meeting, Vandenbergh told
Elections Board Chairman Stan Evans not
to hold the student referendum on funding
for the concert, depending on the Finance
But after the meeting Vandenbergh said
he would proceed with the referendum if
the bill did not pass the full CGC.
If passed by a majority of the students,
the referendum organized Sunday would
have allotted $100,000 to the Student
. Government Spring Concert, regardless of
the CGC .Finance Committee's earlier
decision not to fund the concert.
Vandenbergh, who drew up the. funding
bill, was a major supporter of the petition,
which drew more than 3,000 student
signatures Monday. Ten percent of the
student body had to sign the petition in
order to initiate a student referendum on
funding for the spring concert.
Vandenbergh termed the constitu
tionality of his decision to cancel the
referendum "an interesting question."
According to the Student Constitution,
the student body president must determine
that the bill and petition initiating such a
referendum correspond with the constitu
tion, and then must direct the Elections
Board to conduct the referendum within
15 days of that date.
But there is no provision in either the
constitution or the Elections Board By
Laws for retracting such, an initiative.
Vandenbergh said he canceled the
referendum because he questioned the
constitutionality of presenting two similar
bills to two different voting bodies at the
same time. He said another motive was the
cost of a referendum.
Vandenbergh formally presented the pe
tition and bill to Evans Tuesday after
noon, before he requested the special

Chapel Hill Town Council and Carr
boro Boarl of Aldermen members are
considering a thoroughfare plan which in
cludes an outer loop system, widening the
U.S. 15-501 bypass and changing the pre
sent traffic flow between downtown
Chapel Hill and Carrboro.
Danny Pleasant, Chapel Hill transpor
tation director, said the plan had two pur
poses: to provide guidelines for funding re
quests for improvements and for de
If adopted, the plan would replace the
one that was first adopted in 1965. Plea
sant called the old plan "obsolete."
The proposed outer loop would be two
lanes wide and would be formed by
extending existing roads. This loop would
encircle the Chapel Hill-Carrboro area.
Plans for downtown . call for several
changes including a proposal to make four
one-way streets. Franklin and Rosemary
streets would each run one way east and
west, and Pittsboro and Columbia streets
would run one way north and south.
The plan also includes a proposal to
widen the U.S. 15-501 bypass by making
four lanes from South Columbia heading
west to Rangewood and by making six
lanes from South Columbia heading east
to Durham Boulevard. At a neighborhood
meeting Tuesday night, residents that
would be affected by the eastern extension
of the bypass voiced their concern, Plea
"Although we hadn't really planned to
have a public debate, the meeting last night
certainly turned into one," Pleasant said
"Citizens expressed concern about the
six lanes on the bypass," he said. "We ex
plained that the thoroughfare plan is not
one of lanes, but of lines."
He explained that lanes were not an of
ficial part of the plan and said that many
of the residents were not aware of this.
"We'd eventually like to go back and
adopt specific proposals for widening
lanes," he added.
Another potentially controversial part
of the plans for downtown would extend
Pittsboro Street through the Granville
Towers parking lot and would require the
relocation or demolition of the Kappa
Alpha fraternity house and perhaps part
of the Zeta Psi house, Pleasant said.
Other plans include the extension of
West Franklin Street, which would relieve
congestion along Main Street in Carrboro
and the extension of McCauley Street to
connect with Merritt Mill Road. This ex
tension would improve movement between
the southwest community and the Univer
sity and North Carolina Memorial
Chapel Hill Town Council member
Marilyn Boulton, who attended the
neighborhood meeting, declined to com

unsafe; creates controversy

Warning: Student Government's fitness course
may be hazardous to your health.
Since the Executive Branch purchased the Par
course in the 1979-80 academic year, the course has
deteriorated to its present unsafe and virtually
unusable condition, UNC student leaders and
administrators said recently.
But if the Campus Governing Council appro
priates in coming weeks the $2,300 necessary to
renovate the course, the fitness trail will have a
bright and functional future, Perry Morrison,
Carolina Athletic Association President, said Tues
day. Located near the Varsity tennis courts on Coun
try Club Road, the Parcourse comprises a two-mile
jogging path with 18 exercise stations along the trail.
The stations are set up for such exercises as chin
ups, push-ups and jumping jacks said Intramural
Director Edgar Shields.
But Shields described the course in its present
condition as "very dangerous."
Some areas of the course contain 3-4 feet deep
holes that are obscured by tall grass, and poor
drainage has led to the formation of gullies, he said.
In addition, certain stations in low-lying areas
were difficult to maintain because the ground was
too soft to support the equipment, Shields said.
The cost of renovating the Parcourse was esti
mated at $2,300 in August 1982 by the UNC
Physical Plant, said Harvey Underwood, the plant's
Engineering and Estimating Superintendent. The
estimate included "relocating six of the exercise sta
tions and reinstalling them in concrete, plus building
a step bridge over a drainage ditch," Underwood
Shields said the relocation of those stations would
shorten the course to about one and one-half miles.
Originally purchased for about $6,000, the Par
course has deteriorated to its present condition
because Student Government never made provi
sions for maintenance, Morrison said.
Student Body President Mike Vandenbergh said
Wednesday he did not know why no maintenance
was ensured. "I don't know if it was oversight or
what, but we won't make the same mistake twice,"
But a former student body president said
Wednesday that provisions were indeed made for
the upkeep of the Parcourse but not by the Exec
An intramural fee passed by a student referen
dum in February 1980 was intended to cover the
maintenance of the Parcourse, said J.B. Kelly, stu
dent body president at the time of the purchase and
current Chief Justice for the Student Supreme
Kelly said he had an agreement with a Physical
Education Department official that the cost of the
Parcourse's upkeep would come from the In
tramural Recreational SportsClub Sports fee. .
But Intramural Director Shields, who wrote the
proposal for the fee, professed no knowledge of
such an agreement.
"To the best of my knowledge, there was nothing
in there that covered the Parcourse," he said
, The $3.75 fee, which generates about $150,000 a
year, is used for Intramural and club sports, Shields
But for now, the University and Student Govern-.
ment are discussing maintenance provisions for the
If Student Government agrees to pay for the
renovations, the University is prepared to take
responsibility for the maintenance of the course,
James Exum, Campus Governing Council
Speaker Pro Tern (District 15), said he planned to
propose the funds allocation at the Finance Com
mittee meeting on Monday, Jan. 18.
If a majority of the committee approves the
allocation, Exum said the full CGC would vote on it
Vandenbergh said he thought Student Govern
ment could work out a maintenance plan with the
physical education department.
"I'm in favor of the idea of renewing the Par
course and making it available again," he said.
"The cost does not seem unreasonable."
The K;oposal had a good chance of passing in the
CGC, Morrison said. Because the Parcourse is
located on University property, the University is
liable if anyone incurred injuries by using the
course, he said.
The Parcourse is presently "a waste and more im
portantly, a potential hazard," Exum said. "If
someone is injured, we could easily get sued." He
added that a lawsuit against the University could
cost much more than $2,300.
The renovated Parcourse would be useful to
several groups in the University community, Mor
;;son said, adding that the course could be used by
the general public, physical education classes, in
tramural teams and the NROTC.
"The Parcourse has been a white elephant for the
executive branch since it was built," he said. "But
this proposal has really opened the eyes of the in
tramural and physical education departments to the
value of the course."
