The $30.5 million Educational Foundation
sponsored Student Activities Center is presently
under construction on South Campus. Scheduled
for completion by December 1984, the SAC will in
clude a 22,000-seat basketball arena and an
Olympic-sized swimming and diving complex.
In this two-part series, The Daily Tar Heel ex
amines the role of the UNC alumni and students in
For 13 years, Rams Club member Albert West
did all he could to justify his title of "Super Ram."
In addition to the $19,015 he donated to the Edu
cational Foundation between 1968 and 1981, West
tutored athletes and developed close personal re
lationships with many of them.
During Coach Bill Dooley's tenure at UNC, West
helped football players with their Spanish, and even
sat down three nights a week with Robert McAdoo
to help the basketball standout improve his study
"I gave all I did to help these young men get an
education," he said.
But two years ago. West discovered that he
wasn't giving quite enough.
"Until 1980, I had a great admiration for the objective of the foundation in affording education for
young people. But when they started to build that building, they stopped talking about scholarships."
Albert'West, 13-year Rams Club member
Without prior notification from the Educational
Foundation, he learned in the fall of 1981 that his
Carmichael Auditorium seats of 13 years had been
reassigned to a Student Activities Center booster,
whose contributions had earned more "points"
"I was moved into centerfield," he said.
Educational Foundation Executive Director
Ernest Williamson said it was arranged for West to
retain his seats after he learned of his situation, but
that "by that time the bam doors were closed."
"The executive council (of the Educational Foun
dation) voted to go to the point system, and you're
going to effect some people," Williamson said.
When the foundation decided to undertake the
$30.5 million Student Activities Center project in
July 1980, a point system was instituted in order to
"encourage up front money for the activities
center," he said.
Each $100 contribution to the foundation re
ceives one point, and two points is rewarded for
. each year of membership in the foundation, accord
ing to foundation officials.
Football, basketball and post-season tickets are
allocated according to the point system.
But to increase incentive for SAC contributions,
each $100 donated specifically to the project receiv-'
ed 1.35 points, beginning July 1980.
The bonus has since been reduced to 1.10, and
will be discontinued June 30.
"The people donating money for the SAC
naturally surpassed those people who did not get in
to the giving," Williamson said. "Some people got
moved, some got moved in, some moved out, by
virtue of the contributions they made."
According to the Foundation's figures, a $19,000
contribution from a new member under the 1.35
bonus would have earned the new member more
points than West with his $19,000 and 13 years of
"We need the money, of course," said Neal Har
rell, SAC contributions coordinator. "This is an in
centive to get the money needed for the center as
soon as possible."
But West was disillusioned with the bonus
"I'd never asked any questions about how much
my loyalty was 'worth'," said West. He severed re
lations with the foundation immediately after his
seats were moved.
"Until 1980, 1 had a great admiration for the ob
jective of the foundation in affording education for
young people," he said. "But when they started to
build that building (SAC), they stopped talking

support the foundation's $1.5 million scholarship
Most SAC ticket holders are required to maintain
a "Super Ram" status ($1,500 a year) and the rest
must remain "Big Rams" ($750) or "Regular
Rams" ($150). All these membership dues are used
for scholarships, Williamson said. v
"The bottom line is that there is no way to service
$1.5 million in athletic scholarships with $100 con
tributions," he said.

officials is that the SAC fundraising has been a tre

It was billed as a matchup between a team already
in the Top 20 and a team on its way to the Promised
Land of women's college basketball. The only prob
lem with the contest was that the two teams seemed
to reverse roles during the first seven minutes of
North Carolina's 68-66 win over N.C. State.
The Tar Heels, who entered the ACC confronta
tion with hopes of entering the women's Top 20, used
a quick 12-3 start to carry them to the victory over
the Wolfpack, despite Linda Page's 30-point perfor
mance. "We lost the game in those first five minutes,"
said State coach.Kay Yow. "I didn'tJeet we were
ready. They took that 12-3 lead and we spent the rest
of the night trying to dig ourselves out of the hole,"
The Wolfpack nearly dug themselves out of that
hole and came within two feet of tying the game and
making their grave the grave of the Tar Heels.
With 10 seconds remaining, State had control of
the ball under their own basket. Yow called a timeout
to set up the play that would hopefully tie the score
for her team.
"We figured it was going to be Linda Page and an
ticipated the play because they ran it in the first half.
Kathy (Crawford) had done a super job on her
before and stayed with her," said North Carolina
coach Jennifer Alley of the play that nearly sent the
game' into overtime.
Yow, on the other side of the scorer's table, had no
complaints about Page's shot, but thought that
maybe she should have given Page a little more ad
vice before she walked back onto the court. Yow
realized, as Page and the rest of the 20th-ranked
Wolfpack took the court, that the Tar Heels could
fight off the screen well and that perhaps she should
call another timeout and set up an alternate play. She

Course lost in battle for funds
Budget cuts ca

A race relations class scheduled for this semester nas
been canceled because of a financial crunch, some UNC
officials said this week. But the professor who taught the
course last spring maintains that the course could have
been taught despite the shortage of funds.
The course had a "budgeting problem" this semester,
Harold Wallace, vice chancellor for University Affairs,
said Monday. The salary freeze imposed last year on state
employees limited the funds available for the course, he
said Monday. .
The race relations class was created in 1982 under Stu
dent Body President Scott Norberg and Samuel William
son, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. The pilot
class was conducted during the 1932 spring semester.
But speech professor Paul Brandes, who taught the
class last spring, said the class could have been taught this

semester despite the salary freeze.
"The administration is reluctant to offer it without pay
to an instructor," Brandes said Tuesday. "I'm sure some
of us would have been able to teach it anyway, though. I
would have taught it if I had been asked."
During last spring's pilot class, 18 black students and 18
white students participated. Each received one hour of
passfail credit in the course, which was designated
Special Studies 90. The class met once a week for two
William Graves, associate dean of the General College,
said he had thought the course would continue this spring.
Graves is a faculty coordinator for the Black-White Dia
logue, an informal group in which students meet with
faculty to discuss special problems pertaining to minority
"It turned out that we couldn't do it because of the
state salary freeze," Graves said. "After the initial plan
ning, it was my belief that we came to a halt due to the
Brandes also pointed to a lack of input from the aca
demic departments, none of which expressed an interest in
conducting the class.
"(The class) is not a departmental thing," he said. "De
partments tend to look after themselves.
"By our last three meetings last spring, we had reached
a stage of direct interchange. We also kept our black
white ratio," Brandes said.
Although it was discontinued for this semester, Univer
sity officials plan to resume the class for fall 1983.
"We're not dropping it as an idea," Wallace said. "The
previous course was a good experience."
The Chancellor's office and the University affairs office
will assist the College of Arts and Sciences in coordinating
the race relations course in the future, Wallace said.
Brandes agreed that the University administration
would be willing to reinstitute the class. "No one said we

The 98th Congress, now in session, will
face many of the same issues the last Con
gress did including the battle of the
budget, the Social Security question and
defense budget increases.
But Congress' actions and President
Reagan's influence will more often be tem
pered by necessary compromises than in
the past, various congressmen have said
Richardson Preyer, UNC political
science professor, in a recent interview,
"I think the (results of the fall 1982)
election is going to make the Reagan pro
gram more moderate than in the past,"
Preyer said Friday.
Congress also will follow a "more ra
tional discourse" because of recent rules
changes, Paul Driskell, executive assistant
. to the Majority Leader of the House, said
in a telephone interview this week.
"We're just going to have a more nor
mal Congress than in the past few years
when the Congress was rolled by the presi
dent," the assistant to Rep. Jim Wright,
The Democrats pushed for and Con
gress passed a rules change last fall, which
will focus more attention on major issues,
said Preyer, former 6th Congressional Dis
trict Representative. The move is known as
the Appropriation Riders Rule Change.
Until recent years, when a bill came out
of committee, only minor changes were
made to the bill when it was on the floor
before the full Congress voted on it,
"Now what has been happening in the
last few years, the New Right in particular
has learned how to attach new riders
amendments to the bills," he said.
The riders usually attached to appro
priations bills which had to be passed
often concerned controversial issues. Last
More than $26 million of the $30.5 million goal
has been pledged to date, and contributions con
tinue to come in at a steady clip, according to the
foundation's Oct. 31 report of pledge activity.
Better than $11 million of the pledges have been
received and have earned $1.2 million in interest. In
dividual pledges have averaged close to $16,000, ac
cording to the report.
"We feel that by the time the building opens in
December 1984, it will be fully paid for," Harrell
To ensure a steady cash flow during the two-year
period of construction and beyond, the Founda
tion's executive committee decided in Spring 1982 to
allow the SAC fund to borrow the $900,000 annual
earnings from the foundation's $6 million endow
ment. Rams Club members will not receive their seating
assignments in the SAC basketball arena until fall
1984, but seating will be based on building fund
contributions, Harrell said.
For instance, a $100,000 gift will net the con
tributor eight box seats in a courtside section. The
exact location in the section will depend on the con
tributor's point total, he said.
The minimum pledge to ensure a place in the
SAC is $5,000 for two seats, most of which are
located in the upper deck. .

proved funding for the $100,000 benefit '

round of applause from the about 15
spectators watching the proceedings.
The only negative votes came from

Both Bryson and Painter had voted
against the concert last!, semester.
Although Painter still said he opposed the
concert, both expressed their desire to
leave the decision solely to the students.

cert was initiated by a student petition
listing about 2,900 names which were col
lected last week. The petition came in
response to the CGC Finance Com
mittee's decision last semester not to fund
"If we pass this bill, it will make a
mockery of the CGC," Bryson argued.
Student Body President Mike Vanden
bergh last week ordered that the referen
dum be stalled, pending the CGC's deci
sion on funding the concert. Vanden
bergh said he did not think having two
similar bills passing both the CGC and
the student referendum was constitu
tional. But Painter, chairman of the CGC Rules
s and Judiciary Committee, said Vanden
bergh's action that killed the referendum
was probably not constitutional.
