Fullback Eddie Colson grinds out some yardage in North Carolina's win over Wake Forest Saturday. Colson, who
scored two touchdowns and gained 119 yards on 13 carries, was one of three UNC backs to go over 1 00 yards on the day.
Demon Deacons on ground
By FRANK KENNEDY
Assistant Sports Editor
Wake Forest stopped North Carolina's passing
game cold Saturday, but the Demon Deacons ap
parently forgot that the Tar Heels are a running team
they always have been and (if coach Dick Crum has
anything to say about it) always will be.
It would be an understatement to say that Tar Heel
running was at its best, as not one, two, but three Tar
Heel backs raced for more than 100 yards each, the
first time that has happened in UNC history. If it
wasn't the speed of Tyrone Anthony (156 yards), the
agility of Ethan Horton (116 yards) or the power of
Eddie Colson (119 yards) that left Wake's defensive
front in despair, then it was that bruising Tar Heel of
fensive line that outweighed, outmuscled, outblocked
and outclassed the smaller Wake 5-2 defensive front.
All totaled, the Tar Heels ran 60 times for 440 yards
to break open an even first half and down Wake 30-10
before 51,171 fans in Kenan Stadium.
"I was a little surprised at the way we ran the ball on
them," Crum said after the game. "They worked to
take the pass away from us, and that opened up our
Quarterback Scott Stankavage echoed those sen
timents. "(Wake) was playing with fire and trying to
confuse us by faking blitzes," he said. "But we just
said, 'Well, that's all rightWe'll just keep it on the
ground.' If you want to stop Carolina, you've got to
stop us on the ground first." ;
Fullback Colson warmed up the ground attack,
compiling 30 yards on the Tar Heels' first possession
of the game, only to fumble the ball away at the
Deacon 17-yard line midway through the opening
period. For Colson, who has been brought along slow
ly by the UNC coaches, this was his first 100-yard
game, and he said he was happy to have carried the
ball so often. "It gives you incentive knowing you're
going to carry the ball eventually," he said.
It wasn't until later in the first quarter that An
thony, who started ahead of Horton for the first time
this year, began to find the holes. Following a long
Wake drive and field goal, Anthony and UNC's
monstrous offensive line went to work.
Following a Stankavage incompletion, Anthony ran
through gaping holes formed by left tackle Brian
Blados for three consecutive 14-yard advances. But the
drive was squelched, and kicker Brooks Barwick came
on to tie the score at 3-3.
Anthony, Horton and Colson lauded the play of the
UNC linemen especially Blados for opening up
the holes. "They were playing with a great attitude,"
Anthony said. ".They were blowing guys right off the
line. If it weren't for those guys, we (the backs)
"Blados is great, but so is the whole line. You just
can't say enough about them."
After a Wake drive was stopped on fourth-and-one
at the UNC 27 later in the half, the Tar Heels moved
quickly downfield and capped off a 72-yard scoring
drive with a 14-yard Horton dash off left tackle totake
a 10-3 advantage. Horton, who now has 701 yards this .
year, said playing behind Anthony didn't bother him
"I just go out there to contribute in any way I can,"
he said. "None of us (the backs) are selfish we just
want to get that win."
The Deacons, who were an impressive ball-control
unit throughout the first half, moved methodically
downfield the final four minutes of the first half and
tied the score with 18 seconds remaining when Wake
quarterback Gary Schofield found wide receiver
Duane Owens open in the end zone on a cross pattern
for a 23-yard completion.
' The Tar Heels ran up impressive first half stats, but
key mistakes and defensive lapses kept things close.
Ail-American defensive tackle William Fuller said the
Tar' Heel defense still doesn't have the right level of
emotion to shut a team down for four quarters.
, During the first 30 minutes, Wake rolled up 208
yards of offense but was held to only 27 yards and one
first down during the second 30. "It's great to know
we're so strong in the second half, but we've got to
play better in the first half," Fuller said.

Former student, teacher
optimistic about education
By STUART TONKINSON
Vermont Royster, who sandwiched a
career as editor of The Wall Street Journal
between roles as student and teacher at
UNC, is optimistic about the future of
education in the United States.
"There is a trend back to the adoption
of a basic curriculum," Royster said in an
interview Sunday. "It is mat basic cur- ,
riculum which is necesary to make an
"Without that system, students lost the
ability to communicate with other
people," said Royster, whose
autobiography, My Own, My Country's
Time, was recently published. He added
that he was pleased that the pendulum has
begun to swing back to a time when a
diploma "means something."
The son of a Latin and Greek professor
at UNC, Royster was born in Raleigh in
1914. He graduated from a public high
school in 1929, but instead of going to col
lege, he spent two years at the private
Webb School in Tennessee. At UNC he
wrote plays for. Carolina Playmakers,
wrote editorials for The Daily Tar Heel
and graduated Phi Beta Kappa in 1935 in
the middle of his senior year after major-;
ing in classical languages.
Almost by accident, he set out with $50
for New York. After trying a variety of
jobs, he was finally hired by The Wall
Street Journal to keep track of the ticker
services. He worked his way up through
the Washington bureau, which allowed
him to meet every U.S. president from
Franklin Roosevelt on. He later became an
editorial writer, then editor, for the Jour
nal, which had begun to attract a national
audience. In 1972, he returned to Chapel
Hill as a professor of political science and
journalism. He continues to contribute na
tionally syndicated columns to The Wall
Street Journal. '
Royster said that the University was
smart to adopt stricter curriculum re
quirements in 1980.
But there is still room for improvement,
"Something is wrong when almost half
of the students who take the required jour
nalism school test fail," Royster said. The .
School of Journalism requires students
planning to take journalism courses to
pass a test showing a grasp of English
language and grammar.
"It's my impression that the American
educational system hasn't paid enough at
tention to fundamentals."
He said the decline in teaching the fun
damentals of English, mathematics and
, other subjects was the result of a change in

WASHINGTON Interior Secretary
James Watt resigned Sunday, ending three
weeks of uproar over his latest verbal gaffe
and a stormy 2 'i -year career as manager
of the nation's land and natural resources.
President Reagan reluctantly accepted
the resignation and said Watt would re
main on the job until a successor is chosen.
Watt made the announcement in a cow
pasture at a ranch where he has been vaca
tioning near Santa Barbara, Calif., telling
reporters "the time has come" to step
Reagan accepted the resignation with
reluctance and said Watt had done "an
outstanding job as a member of my
Cabinet and. in his stewardship of the
natural resources of the nation."
Reagan said Watt "feels that he has
completed the principle objectives that he
and I agreed upon when he became
secretary of the interior."
Reagan said Watt "has initiated a care
ful balance between the needs of people
2nd the importance of protecting the en
vironment. His dedication to public service
and his accomplishments as secretary of
the interior will long be remembered."
Watt informed Reagan of his decision to
resign during a telephone call shortly after
5 p.m. EDT, the president said.
Watt said he resigned because "our
usefulness ... has come to an end." His let
ter of resignation was hand delivered to the
president at 6 p.m. EDT.
There was no immediate word on
Watt's successor. But White House aides
have said for the past several days that
candidates included former Sen. Clifford
Hansen, R-Wyoming; J.J. Simmons, a
black Democrat who works at Interior;
and Energy Secretary Donald Hodel, a
former Interior Department official.
The controversy was touched off Sept.
21 when Watt told a Chamber of Com
merce breakfast that an Interior Depart
ment advisory committee contained "a
black ... a woman, two Jews and a
The remark prompted several
Republican senators to demand his resig
nation and led Senate Minority Leader
Robert C. Byrd, D-W. Va., to propose a
formal resolution calling for Watt to
As recently as last Wednesday, Reagan
was defending Watt, declaring that his
statement was a "stupid" remark but was
not an impeachable offense.
But Watt's support continued to
deteriorate in the Republican-controlled
Senate. Majority Leader Howard Baker,
R-Tenn., said he could not prevent a vote
on Byrd's resolution. Most observers ex
pected it to pass easily in what would have
been a humiliating repudiation of one of
Reagan's cabinet officials.
Watt, public enemy No. 1 to the en
vironmentalists, was also in many respects
their best ally. In the 2lA years since he
took office, they have seen their member
ship roles swell as the issues of concern to
them were debated as never before in the

several environmentalists said they would
not celebrate his departure.

The 6:55 p.m. accident occurred while
the four were on their way to a Rick James
concert in Greensboro, said Barb Brett, a
10th floor Morrison resident assistant.
Cummings' car, a Dodge Omni, ran a stop
sign and collided with a Chevrolet Blazer,
Sexton said. The Omni was traveling west
on the Chapel Hill-Greensboro Highway,
and the truck was traveling north on N.C.

Frelle Bruce Gentry, 36, from Salem,
Va., was driving the Chevrolet Blazer, and
William Gentry, 38, of Graham, was a
Frelle Gentry was treated and released
from Memorial Hospital of Alamance,
and William Gentry was in stable condi

Friends of the three women said Sunday
that they were outgoing and active in a
variety of campus organizations. All three
were members of the Black Student Move
ment. Cummings was a member of the
Ebony readers, a group that recites poetry
on the black heritage. Melvin was a dancer
with the Opeyo Dancers, who combine in
terpretive dancing with jazz and modern
ballet. Cummings and Jeffries were Ladies

On phone services
Group doing survey
By LYNN DAVIS
A survey is being distributed today in
UNC residence halls by the Student Con
sumer Action Union to determine how
many students have received one or more
of Southern Bell's optional telephone ser
vices without requesting them.
SCAU chairman Richard Owens said
the survey is being conducted to determine
approximately how many students have
been affected and to determine exactly
what the Chapel Hill office's marketing
approach has been.
SCAU and UNC Student Legal Services
began receiving complaints shortly after
students returning to school in August had
their phones hooked up and then found
that they also had one or more of the op
tional services, even though the services
had not been requested.
Optional custom calling services include
call waiting, Call t-orwardmg, 1 hree-way
Calling and Speed Calling.
Owens said the surveys will be collected
Wednesday by the Residence Hall Associa
tion's floor presidents and need to be
returned to SCAU as soon as possible.
Since the optional services are not
itemized on the phone bill but are included
as a part of the regular monthly service
charge, the survey includes a billing
schedule to help students determine if they
are paying for the services without their
According to the billing schedule, the
regular monthly bill for a dorm phone is
$12.50. Charges for Call Waiting and
Three-way Calling are $3 per month for
each service, and Speed Calling and Call
Forwarding each cost $2 per month. All
four services can be purchased at a.
package rate of $7.50 per month.
