"We have in this state one goal, ex
cellence in education," Gov. Jim Hunt
told an audience of about 500 in Memorial
Hall Monday night.
As the guest speaker at the Order of the
Golden Fleece induction ceremony, Hunt

one, for their loyal service to the Universi

challenge grant of $750,000 for the College

Hunt said that it is important that the
inductees share their talents with others.
"High achievement students deserve
special attention, but we must place equal
emphasis on helping each child achieve his
or her potential," he said.
Ironically, before Hunt's speech, mem
bers from the Carolina Students for Life
organization protested his pro-abortion
stance. They carried posters and passed
out fliers ridiculing Hunt's policies. One
poster called Hunt a "genocidal maniac."
Hunt said that there was no such thing

"Todd Rundgren was mentioned (to the
Agenda Committee), and we told him to
go ahead and negotiate," Exum said. "If
he would have said, say, Paul McCartney,

Another member of the Agenda Com

"At this point, I don't think it makes
any difference," Doc Droze (District 22!)
said. "But we may have been misinformed
if that information was available at the
time we made our decision."

The UNC men's fencing team captured third
place out of a 47-team field at the NCAA finals held
this weekend at the University of Wisconsin
Par kside. Senior co-captain and All-American John
Friedberg won the sabre competition, winning all 23
bouts in the final round.
:The competition, spread over a three-day period,
was won by Wayne State, a perennial fencing power...
"I felt I was getting stronger each day,"
Friedberg said. "I was nearing my peak by the end
of the second day, and I never slowed down from

men's team was ranked No. 1 in the nation among
universities which offer little or no scholarship
assistance to their fencing programs. After gradua

Elsewhere, the announcement was met
with less criticism. Richard Fox, the chief

"I would prefer to see him solo than
with Utopia," said WXYC station
manager Bill Burton.
Utopia, the band that Rundgren also
plays with, does not play the better known
Rundgren songs, Fox said.
Rundgren, who will receive $25,000 and
a percentage of all gross ticket sales over
$125,000, had to be coaxed out of the
studio, Lee said.
The concert will begin at noon April 23
with Grandmaster Flash and the Furious
Five, to be followed by The Producers,

Grandmaster Flash and the Furious
Five, who perform the popular single,
"The Message," will feature all of their

Negotiations to get the progressive
group U-2 were more demanding, Lee
said. While the band was originally offered
$7,500, the concert date fell on the open
ing day of their tour. U-2 accepted the of
fer of $10,000.
Both Grandmaster Flash and The Pro
ducers will each receive $5,000.
Profits from the concert will be con
tributed to the Muscular Dystrophy
Association, Special Olympics and
UNICEF. The Carolina Concert Commit

money raised by selling T-shirts and con

To prevent problems encountered at last
year's Chapel Thrill concert, the upper
decks of Kenan Stadium will be closed off
for the conceit. Attendance will be limited ,
to 12,500 with seating restricted to the
lower level of one side of the stadium.
The concert should sell out during ad
vance ticket sales, Lee said last week. The
concert will break even if as few as 8,000
people attend, he said.
About 18,000 people filled Kenan for
last year's Chapel Thrill. The concert
featured Daryl Hall and John Oates, Joan

North Carolina public school teachers
and college education professors may be
required to learn more about each other, if
a bill in the N.C. House Education Com
mittee is passed.
The bill, proposed by Rep. Howard
Chapin, D-Beaufort, would create a pilot
program in which school teachers and pro
fessors of education would exchange
duties. This swap program would be
established by the UNC system and the
state Board of Education to last for no less
than 10 days in the coming school year.
"A lot of education professors have
.never been out in the trenches," said
Chapin, who for 34 years taught in the
Washington (N.C.) City Schools. "I feel
these professors ought to get into the real
world to see what's really going on."
The bill will be discussed today by the
34-member House Education Committee.
If it receives a favorable report there, the
bill may be introduced to the full House as
early as Wednesday, Chapin said.
Donald Stedman, UNC associate vice
president, said he agrees with the objec
tives of the bill but not with creating laws
to achieve those objectives.
"The University will work to oppose
this bill," Stedman said. "The idea of
legislation is unnecessarily coercive."
Stedman also said a 10-day exchange is
not enough time to be beneficial for either
teachers or professors.
Rep. Joe Hackney, D-Orange, said he
approves of the swap idea, if it isn't over
done. "I think (the swap program) could be
useful as long as it's implemented on a
limited basis," he said.
Education Committee Chairwoman Jo
Graham Foster said she favors the idea,
calling it "a potentially enlightening ex
perience for these educators."
Several schools, including UNC
Charlotte and Appalachian State, have
already implemented a swapping program
on a volunteer basis. UNC-CH has
operated a voluntary exchange with the
Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools this
"It has great potential as a professional
development opportunity," said Dr. Pam
Mayer, superintendent of Chapel Hill
Carrboro City Schools. "(Our trial swap)

music teacher at Estes Hills and Brent

school year Beyle has lectured to future
music teachers on Tuesdays and
Thursdays, while Bostley has taught music
classes to elementary school youngsters.
"I've gained a more intimate insight in
to the classroom situation. It's given me a
new outlook on my job as coordinator of
musical education," Bostley said.

Rossabi won six of his last eight bouts.
"It was crucial that our guys fenced as strongly as
they did on the last day," Miller said. "Several

were trailing us very closely. The fact that we won
19 of our last 24 bouts was a key factor in us doing

The battle over land condemnation rights for the
proposed Cane Creek Reservoir did not end with an
administrative decision earlier this month in favor
of Orange Water and Sewer Authority.
Spokesmen for the Cane Creek Conservation
Authority said Friday they would definitely take
that decision to court. .
The CCCA is appealing a March 10 decision by
the N.C. Environmental Management Commission.
The commission said OWASA could begin land
condemnation proceedings against property owners
hoping to block construction of the proposed
758-acre reservoir. OWASA needed the ruling
because it had been unable to purchase directly all
the land that would be necessary to build the reser
voir. ' V -
"There is absolutely no doubt it will be appealed
to superior court," CCCA attorney Ted Corvette
said in a telephone interview Friday. Corvette said
he had not yet received an official written copy of
the EMC decision, but said he would probably file
the appeal immediately upon receiving it.
The CCCA would have 30 days to appeal the case
after the EMC makes the ruling official, but Cor
. vette said 30 days really would not be necessary.
"We'll probably do it (file the appeal) fairly
quickly," he said.
The case will go to Wake County Superior Court
first, but Corvette said the CCCA was willing to see
. the case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court if
CCCA spokesman Ed Johnson said Friday that
taking the decision to court would provide "a
greater opportunity to have the issue decided on its
Calling it "basically a political decision,"
Johnson said the EMC ruling a ruling that Cor
vette said was influenced by town governments and
the University came as no surprise.
But OWASA Executive Director Everett ' Bill
ingsley said Friday that the EMC ruling was an ob
jective third-party decision. . ,
Billingsley also had not received a copy of the
EMC decision, and would not comment on the
CCCA's decision to appeal; but he reiterated
OWASA's desire for "good-faith negotiations"
with landowners in the affected area. OWASA has
already purchased land directly from approximately
one-third of the property owners affected by the
reservoir plans. Billingsley said OWASA preferred
negotiation and direct purchase rather than exercis
ing the condemnation rights.
If the decision is appealed, it would not be the
first the time Cane Creek issue has been in court.
The . EMC awarded condemnation rights to
OWASA following a public hearing in 1979, but the
CCCA appealed that decision in court. As a result,
the N.C. Court of Appeals ruled in 1980 that an en
vironmental impact statement and a new hearing
would be required before the EMC could make a
The impact statement was completed and a new
hearing held last year.
But just as before, the EMC ruled in favor of
OWASA. Now, just as before, the CCCA is plann
ing to take the decision to court.
"There's so much wrong with the hMC decision,
as far as I'm concerned, that I don't know where to
start," Corvette said. He did not dispute Orange
County's need for an expanded water supply, but he
said the evidence did not support the EMC's fin
dings. Corvette said that the water quality of a reservoir
at Cane Creek would be higher than that of alter
nate water sources, such as Jordan Lake or an ex
panded University Lake. But he claimed that the
quality wasn't significantly high enough to justify
the damage a reservoir might cause the Cane Creek
Figures from the environmental impact state
ment, issued by the N.C. Department of Natural
Resources and Community Development, indicate
that a reservoir on Cane Creek would be the least
expensive solution to the county's water problems.
The figures also show that residents of the
OWASA service area will need more than 1 1 million
gallons of water per day by the year 2020. These
figures are based on official per capita water con
sumption estimates for a projected population of
But Corvette said those figures were artifically
high and purposely inflated, thus eliminating an ex
panded University Lake as one possible solution to
the need for water.
"OWASA designed the qualifications (for an ex
panded water supply) so that only Cane Creek
would fit them," he said.
There appears to be no immediate resolution to
the long-running controversy. ' For what he con
sidered to be a conservative estimate, Corvette said
he believed it would be at least five years before the
issue was completely settled.
