the game that you can never count on: the weather

On Friday night the Tar Heels sent pitcher Donnie
Hoover and the Tigers' packing into the losers' bracket
with a comeback 6-5 squeaker. Hoover pitched one
inning and gave up. three runs in gaining the loss.
When Sunday rolled in with all its clouds, Hoover
was ready to pitch again. Starting pitcher Tim Rice
gave up a quick two-run homer to UNC first baseman
Pete Kumiega in the first inning, so after the Tigers
picked up a run in the bottom of the inning on a Brad
Powell wild pitch, Rice was gone and Hoover was in.
And this time, Hoover's breaking ball was working.
Hoover pitched eight full innings, gave up just two
hits, and struck out seven in Clemson's most impor
tant game of the year.
"It's a job of little respect just my coach and
teammates give me any respect," Hoover said. "I had
a better breaking ball tonight, coming down side

call it a slider. ,

Hoover shackled the Tar Heels through the fourth
inning, and didn't give up a hit until DH Drex
Roberts' triple off the rightfield wall in the top of the
UNC pitcher Brad Powell also kept the Tigers
scoreless through the fourth, but for the sophomore
right hander, it wasn't as easy. Powell gave up two
hits and a walk through four, and while Hoover got
out of the fifth inning without giving up a run, Powell
wasn't so lucky.
Shortstop Scott Powers struck out, but Powell's
third strike also skittered under catcher Tim McGee
for a wild pitch, and Powers made it to first to beat
the putout. Second baseman Brooks Shumake then
doubled to put Powers on third, and two batters later,

UNC will not divest of its interests in
corporations operating in South Africa
following a Thursday decision by the
Board of Trustees of the Endowment.
John A. Tate, chairman of both the
Endowment Board and the Board of '
Trustees, announced the Endowment "
Board's decision at the BOT's Friday
Tate said in a prepared statement that
the Endowment Board "deplores apar
theid in South Africa."
"South Africa is a country where racial
exploitation is institutionalized and
blatantly enforced on a massive scale,"
the statement said. Tate said the board
found these policies "repugnant and in
humane." "However, the primary charge of the
Endowment Trustees is to maximize risk
adjusted investment returns for the .
charitable purposes of the University
community, and we do not thirilc
divestiture is consistent with that respon
sibility," Tate stated. .;
Pressure on the University to remove
investments in South African companies
has come primarily from the UNC Public
Interest Research Group, which Thurs
day held a divestment rally outside the
Carolina Inn, where the Endowment
Board was meeting to discuss the divest
ment dilemma. The students placed fur
ther pressure on the board when they x
voted to support divestment through a
Feb. 8 student referendum.
PIRG member David Goldman said
Sunday that PIRG was disappointed in
the board's decision but that the decision
"The board rhetorically condemned
apartheid and the South African system,
but concretely, they refused to take any
positive steps toward changing the situa
tion in South Africa," Goldman said.
"The board just reaffirmed its position
toward maximizing profit.
"They didn't actually consider divest
ment on its own merits," Goldman said.
"They're, not concerned with the human
ramifications of their investments. That
was just something they couldn't worry
about."" " "f : ' '' - ' XA '
At Thursday's rally, PIRG also pro
tested both the lack of student participa
tion in the Endowment Board's decisions
and the board's closed meeting status.
The Endowment Board did allow aJO
minute divestment presentation by PIRG
members in February, but PIRG member
Joe Morris said Thursday that such a
limited amount of time afforded student
dialogue on the issue was "close to a slap
in the face." PIRG has since then pressed
for direct student representation on the
board. . ,
Tate said Friday that the board had
discussed the divestment issue at length
but that "we did not see how we could
have any' further participation by other
than those on the Endowment Board."
v UNC Chancellor Christopher C. Ford
ham III said at the EOT meeting that
tne quality and length of discussion con
cerning divestment "did justice to the
concerns which the students have rightly
Goldman said Sunday that despite the
board's decision not to divest, PIRG's ef
forts have still had an effect on the way
the University community views UNC's
"The immediate effect is that people
have gotten to know about the current in
vestment policy and the inadequacy of
that policy," he said. "With enough stu
dent pressure, (the Endowment Board)
can be forced to divest. But it's probably
down the road."

Reagan grieves over burial of Beirut casualties
The Associated Press
ANDREWS AIR FORCE BASE, Md.
President Reagan solemnly welcomed
home the bodies of 16 Americans killed in
Beirut with a vow Saturday evening that
the "cowardly, skulking barbarians" who
killed them "will not have their way."
Speaking in front of a large American
flag before wooden coffins draped with
precisely folded smaller flags, the president
quoted the Sermon on the Mount in tri
bute to the victims of one of the worst at
tacks on a U.S. embassy in the 200-year
history of the foreign service:
"It is written, 'Blessed are the peace
makers,' and they truly were the peace
makers." Members of the families of the dead sat
solemn-faced, some wiping their eyes, on
three long rows of folding chairs on the
other side of the coffins lined up on a

forced indoors by rain. A military honor
guard stood facing the audience at the
president's right beside the caskets.
Reagan was accompanied by his wife,
Nancy, and Secretary of State George P.
Shultz and his wife, Helena, in what he
earlier called "one of the saddest journeys
of my presidency" by helicopter from the
White House. ,
Lebanon's ambassador to the United
States Khalil Itani and secretary general of
the Lebanese Foreign Ministry, Faoud
Turk, also" attended. ,
At the opening, Turk extended to the
president and to all Americans "the deep
sorrow we in Lebanon have felt as the re
sult of this crime." The dead, he said,
perished "in the service of American
ideals" ideals that will win in the end."
Calling the bombing of the Beirut em
bassy a "dastardly deed, an act of un
paralleled cowardice" and "an attack on
all of us and the values that we hold dear,"
the president said of the dead:
"They knew firsthand how an afflicted
mankind looked to us for help, with faith
in our strength, our sense of justice and
our decency. ... Let us in their presence
Serve notice to the cowardly, skulking bar
barians in the world that they will not have
As the ceremony closed, the president
and Mrs. Reagan walked among the be
reaved families, speaking to each person,
shaking hands, sometimes kissing. Some
sobbing family members could not speak.
The president at one point wiped his
cheek; Mrs. Reagan wiped her eyes several
Two young girls weeping in each other's

The UNC Faculty Council agreed Fri
day to make 3 1 recommendations to UNC
administrators designed to promote the
quality of undergraduate teaching at the
The recommendations were part of a re
port submitted to the council last week by
its Educational Policy Committee, made
up of 19 student and faculty members.
The 24-page report is the result of a
study made by the Educational Policy
Committee at the request of Samuel
Williamson, dean of -the College of Arts
and Sciences. It was originally expected to
take one year to complete, but the scope of
the task required a second year to provide
an adequate report, said William H.
Graves, chairman of the committee and
professor of mathematics.
The committee based its report on a
survey of 447 faculty members and a
report made by the student members of
the committee and Student Government
Most faculty members believe that not
enough importance is attached to under
graduate teaching when tenure, promotion
and merit raises are considered, the faculty
report states. The student report states that
research is emphasized more than under
"While students recognize the national
reputation of the University, they also
realize that the intellectual atmosphere
here is not good," the student report said.
"More emphasis needs to be placed on the
art of teaching."
The faculty report adds that students
themselves are seen "as little interested in
matters of the mind." Faculty are said to
be dismayed with the attention given to
varsity athletics and "popular culture" as
compared with Student Government's de
clining support of such programs as the
Carolina Course Review.
"We hope Student Government will
come around and put funding back into
the Review" Grave said.
The recommendations seek to improve
the intellectual atmosphere of the Univer
sity, Graves said. The report suggests that:
The liberal arts perception of the Uni
versity be promoted by the Alumni Asso
ciation, the Office of Undergraduate Ad
missions and the College of Arts and
Sciences and the freshman orientation
program. A questionnaire addressing the
quality of undergraduate teaching should
be distributed to faculty, students and
More teaching awards and professor
ships be developed to show the comrnit-

Fans wet but enthusiastic
ain erodes concert profits
By TOM CONLON
A sparse, rain-drenched crowd at Saturday's Carolina Concert
for Children dampened hopes that the concert committee could
break even on concert expenses.
The rain that fell steadily on Kenan Stadium all day Saturday
hurt ticket sales and left a deficit cf approximately $30,000 to
$40,000, said Anthony Hughes, Carolina Concert committee
Despite the rain, the approximately 4,300 fans who attended
the concert were enthusiastic throughout performances by Grand
master Flash and the Furious Five, The Producers, U-2 and Todd
Rundgren. During U-2's performance, fans ran down from the
stands and crossed a fence to dance next to the stage, causing
police to move the crowd back.
The rain not only hurt ticket sales but also delayed the start of
the concert for 35 minutes, said concert adviser Linda Wright.
The late arrival of band equipment also contributed to the slow
start, she said.
Most of the spectators viewed the concert from beneath the up
per deck on Kenan Stadium's north side or, armed with um
brellas, from the front rows of the stands. Balloons that had been
set up to form a rainbow from each side of the stage to the goal
posts sagged to the ground because of the rain.
Though already damp, campus celebrities Kevin Monroe, Jon
Reckford, Dan Bryson, James Exum and Ben Lee volunteered as
targets for a dunking booth that was part of concert festivities.
Only 273 of the 4,300 tickets sold were purchased at the gate on
Saturday, Hughes said. "We needed to sell about 3,500 tickets (on
the day of the concert) to break even on costs," he said. Tickets
sold for $13 each.
"We had scalpers outside the gates who were selling tickets as
low as $4," Hughes said. "I gather they just didn't want to watch
the concert in the rain."
Hughes added that the ban on alcohol at the concert, the
elimination of seating in the upper deck and late Campus Govern
ing Council approval for the concert also plagued concert atten
The concert was funded by CGC appropriations from its
General Reserve of student fees, which can be used for appropria
tions to campus organizations. CGC speaker James Exum said
Sunday that the concert's deficit probably would not affect the
future funding of campus organizations.
"We won't know anything for sure until we get the exact finan
. rial figures, but all of our past concerts, with the exception of last
year's; did not break even, and it didn't affect funding," Exum
.said. .' - -
There were few security problems at the concert, according to
University and Chapel Hill police.
"None of the crowd gave us any trouble and we had no
arrests," said Maj. Charles E. Mauer of the University police.
"There weren't enough people there to pose a problem."
Chapel Hill police made three arrests at the concert, said
Chapel Hill police officer Maurice Heyes. Two of the arrests were
for simple possession of marijuana and one was for possession of
