ACC baseball tournament
3ankhead baffles Blue Devils on six hits
By S.L. PRICE
"Whenever Duke catcher Tom Decker and theUNC
baseball team have met this season, some sort of
complaining and muttering has been the result.
Wednesday's ACC Tournament contest was no ex
ception. In a 4-2 North Carolina win dominated by UNC
pitcher Scott Bankhead's six-hit, nine-strikeout per
formance,, the confrontation between Decker and
North Carolina catcher B.J. Surhoff in the eighth in
ning almost turned one of the least physical of sports
into the Thrilla in Manila.'
With the Tar Heels up 4-2, Surhoff singled to right
field to open the inning and was sacrificed to second
on a Pete Kumiega bunt. Surhoff moved to third on
Ken Fay's wild pitch, and UNC coach Mike Roberts
called for the suicide squeeze. '
Mike Jedziniak, the Tar Heel second baseman who
went 2-for-4 for the game, laid down the bunt, but it
"I was out by a mile and I just tried to duck under
him," Surhoff said. "I thought he might have been a
little too aggressive on the tag."
Surhoff pushed Decker's arm, was called out again
for interference this time and Decker pushed
. The benches cleared, the fans started yelling, both
benches tossed epithets back and forth, and the next
thing Surhoff knew, "the third baseman was on top
of me before I turned around,"
No punches were thrown, and the game ended
minutes later on a picture-perfect Kumiega-to--
Jedziniak-to-Kumiega double play,'but Surhoff was
surprised by the Duke reaction: ....
"Their assistant coach came in like hewanted to
fight somebody," Surhoff said. "It was just a heated
battled, no big deal.
"It was probably a lot of frustration."
And the 12-121 Blue Devils had plenty to be
frustrated about. The Tar Heels jumped to an early
1-0 lead in the second inning when Kumiega, 3-for-3
on the day, scored on Jedziniak's bouncing single. -
Duke put men on second and third in their third
inning but couldn't get them home. UNC responded
with two runs in the bottom of the inning after desig
nated hitter Drex Roberts walked and third baseman
Jeff Hubbard delivered a bloop single to short right
field. Both runners successfully pulled off a double
steal, and Kumiega rolled a base hit up the middle for
the two RBI. ;!
The Blue Devils finally broke through in the fourth
with two runs on DH Fred Donegan's two-out dou
ble with two men on. But that was the' last hit they
would get until a single in the ninth inning, because
Bankhead settled into his slider.., ,
, "The big key to getting a lot of strikeouts is getting
ahead on the batter," Bankhead. now 7-0. said.
think my slider is my out pitch; today my slider was
getting 'em out."
. After that two-run Duke rally, Bankhead's slider
and fastball retired the next nine batters in a row, and
then lefthander Tim Kirk came in to" mop up in the
eighth and ninth to earn the save. -
Meanwhile, UNC . notched its final run ' when
Roberts doubled right fielder Todd Wilkinson home
in the seventh. ':
The eighth found Decker holding the ball and
Surhoff charging home at the end of a Duke-UNC
.confrontation typical of this season. - -
"It's always an aggressive-type game," Kumiega
said. "Tommy's an aggressive kid, an aggressive
style ballplayer. You can't knock him for that."
During the first Duke-UNC matchup a month ago
in Chapel Hill, senior center fielder Greg Schuler was
put out of commission for the season when the two
collided at the plate.
"I think that had a little to do with it," Surhoff
said, explaining Wednesday's brouhaha. "He really
lowered the boom on (center fielder) Glenn

WASHINGTON In a major setback
to the nuclear power industry, the
Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that
states can ban construction of new plants
until the federal government devises a safe
way to dispose of radioactive waste.
The Reagan administration had argued
that allowing states to prohibit new plants
could seriously jeopardize the growth of
nuclear power as a source of electricity.
But after the 9-0 decision, upholding a
1976 California moratorium on new
atomic power plants, industry spokesmen
tried to play down its impart.
"It's not theMeath knell for nuclear
power," said Linda Hodge, counsel for
the Atomic Industrial Forum.
Robert Dobkin, a spokesman for the
same trade group, said there is not likely to
be any immediate impact on the 57 nuclear
plants already under construction nation
wide. In other decisions Wednesday, the
Declared unconstitutional a federal
law that banned demonstrators from the
public sidewalks surrounding the court's
own building on Capitol Hill. The justices
said it violated free speech to ban pickets
from the sidewalks.

punitive damages to prevent future wrong

In the nuclear case, Laurence Tribe, the
Harvard law professor who represented
California, said the decision meant states
could prevent plants already under , con
struction from beginning operations.
"The decision's underlying rationale is a
total victory for the states," he said. The
states' power under the ruling "plainly is
independent of the question whether the
plant has begun construction or not," he
However, Tribe did not suggest that
states necessarily would toy to block those
plants from beginning operations. To do
so, they likely would have to compensate
fully the affected plant owners.
To date, no state has tried to prevent a
plant under construction from eventually
beginning operations. There are two plants
being built in California which were ex

The Campus Governing . Council
Finance" Committee' Wednesday put off a
decision on whether The Daily Tar Heel
should, receive a requested $31,200 ap
propriation. Charlie Madison, a member of the DTH
Board of Directors, said at a Finance
Committee meeting that the newspaper
needed the money to cover a $12,700
deficit from the current fiscal year.
In addition, the DTH needs $18,500 to
ensure that it breaks even next year, he
said. The paper could use the $18,500 as a
reserve to eliminate four-page newspapers
next year, he said.
Because of the lack of advertising space,
the DTH loses about $300 to $500 for each
four-page paper it prints, Madison said.
The paper loses somewhat less on six-page'
papers and breaks even on eight-page
papers, he said.
DTH Editor Kerry DeRochi said that to
avoid a deficit the paper would have been
forced to run 37 four-page papers this
academic year, about one in every four.
The paper will have run 15 four-page
papers when publishing concludes for the
academic year next week, she said.

Off-campus students now have an organization much like the
Residence Hall Association that exists for dorm residents. .
The Off-Campus Student Association, formed last semester,
helps students living off campus feel more a part of the Universi
ty, said John Edgerly, faculty adviser for the organization and
director of the Student Development and Counseling Center.
"There was a concern that off-campus students were not being
represented,". Edgerly said. "We are trying to address these
The association, consisting of 30 active members, was
developed as a result of efforts made by the Student Government
"We did assessments to sec if such an organization was needed,
and it was obvious that there were definitely problems that needed
to-be contended with," said SG Housing Committee -member
Miller talked to students interested in forming an organization
, for off-campus students, held two meetings and soon had a con
stitution written for the group.
Four areas which students decided posed the most difficulties
for off-campus students were developed into separate committees
within the organization. . 1
"The most important of these committees is probably the one
which was designed to increase the communication between
students living off campus and on-campus activities," said Tracy
Cappel, president of the Off-Campus Student Association.
"A lot of times students who.do not live at the University really
don't know what is going on, and we want to improve this," Cap

this money until next faff' Droze said
In the meantime, the Finance Commit
tee decided to set up a subcommittee to
evaluate DTH finances. The subcommittee,
to be headed by Droze, "will consist of
three members of the Finance Committee,
two members of the Rules and Judiciary
Committee and one member of the Stu
dent Affairs Committee.
The DTH has a budget of $394,000 for
the current fiscal year, about $70,000 of
which comes from Student Activity Fees.
The balance comes from the sale of adver
tising. Following the meeting, DeRochi said
she understood the committee's problems
but added that any delay in receiving an
appropriation could force the DTH to
produce a number of four-page issues at
the beginning of the fall semester.
"But I think it will work out for the
best," she added. "The extra time will give
them a chance to look over our budget and
find out how much we need the money."
In other action, the Finance Committee

The UNC Public Interest Research Group has
scheduled a rally at 2:30 p.m. today outside the
Carolina Inn to demonstrate student support for the
removal of UNC investments in South Africa.
The rally will precede a 3 p.m. meeting of the
Board of Trustees of the Endowment Fund, which is
elected by the UNC Board of Trustees. The -board ,
will discuss divestment of corporations which operate
in South Africa.
Representatives from other campus groups, in
cluding Sherrod Banks of the Black Student Move
, ment, will speak at the rally. Assistant Professor of
political science Beverly C. Grier will also speak, said
PIRG member Joe Morris.
The rally is being held "both to demonstrate sup-.
port for divestment, and to protest the fact that
students are excluded from the meeting," Morris
The Endowment Board's meetings are closed to
the public, said Virginia Dunlap, secretary of the
University. The BOT has a standing invitation to at
tend the Endowment Board's meetings but may not -participate
in them, Dunlap said.
PIRG is a 30-member campus chapter of a na
tional organization begun by Ralph Nader, Morris
said. The UNC chapter is' a liberal political action
group that is concerned with many issues; including
U.S. intervention in the Third World, he added.
PIRG requested and was granted a meeting with
' the Endowment Board on Feb. 18. At the meeting,
PIRG members Morris and Harvey Jenkins told the
board they opposed UNC investments in South
Africa because of that country's apartheid govern
ment. Apartheid is a policy of segregation and political

and economic discrimination against non-European
groups in the Republic of South Africa.
PIRG member David Goldman said he was not
optimistic that the Endowment Board would approve
divestment but added that whatever the outcome,
students would continue to fight for divestment.
"It's hard to measure what will make them want to
divest," Goldman said. "If they don't divest this
year, they're going to have to do it next year because
student support is not going to disappear."
Student Body President Kevin Monroe, a member
of the BOT, said that he supported the divestment of
funds in South African corporations and that he was
aware that students supported divestment in a
referendum passed on Feb. 8.
Monroe said that as the only student at the
meeting, he expected to have some input into the
discussion of UNC divestment.
The meeting was originally scheduled for March
24, but was postponed because of snowfall.
Neither UNC Chancellor Christopher C. Fordham
III nor Farris Womack, UNC vice chancellor for
business and finance, was available for comment
Wednesday. John A. Tate, chairman of the Endow
ment Board, was also unavailable for comment.
