Modest Tar Heels
blast Deacons, 100-63
Assistant Sports Editor
If modesty is something that takes years to develop, then the
North Carolina Tar Heels have been practicing since birth.
The mood in the UNC locker room after Thursday night's
overwhelming 100-63 'defeat of usually troublesome Wake
Forest was one of surprising calm, appearing almost as if the
Tar Heels had once again narrowly fended off another ACC op
ponent in the closing seconds. If there was any exuberance
displayed by the Tar Heels in the form of high-fives, cheers and
self-congratulations after the game, the press certainly couldn't
see it.
Perhaps that was because Thursday's game had been a
foregone conclusion by halftime, when UNC held a comman
ding 41-23 lead. For the most part, the Tar Heels were tired,
thinking about hot showers and getting the interviews over with.
And amidst this calm there was modesty, for the Tar Heels were
not about to admit the obvious just yet. The obvious is, of
course, that there is no better team in America right now. No
one. UNC cleared that up.
"Everyone concentrated well and we executed well on
defense," center Brad Daugherty said, shunning questions that
labeled the Tar Heels as the perfect team. "We have many
weaknesses, and I'm sure we'll see several areas we can improve
on when we look at the films.
"We're not gelling really well, not just yet," he said.
So if the Tar Heels, who are now 15-0 overall and 6-0 in the
ACC (their best start since 1957), haven't gelled yet, then what
will the real UNC basketball team be like when it finally gets its
game together?
"Hey, we haven't won anything yet," senior forward Matt
Doherty responded when asked if this is the greatest UNC team
ever. "If we think we can't play even better than we did tojiight,
then we don't have anything more to shoot for."
The biggest mystery Thursday, aside from UNC's low-key ap
proach to the outcome, was the outcome itself. If any team is
usually capable of beating the Tar Heels on their home turf, it's
Carl Tacy's Demon Deacons. Just two years ago, the Deacs put
the first black mark on No.l UNC by rallying from 22-9 deficit
to stop UNC after its 13-0 start.
And, just eight days before this game, the Deacons crushed
Duke by 31 points.
"We didn't think it was going to be like this," UNC coach
Dean Smith said. "I think this is the best we've played all year.
Our defense held them to four points in the first 10 minutes and
I think that set the tempo for the game.
"We were a little cautious at the first of the second half,"
Smith, said. "I reminded them of the Virginia game last week
and last year's Virginia game and they really played with a little
more intensity."
This wasn't Virginia, but rather a Wake team that is now 1-4
in the ACC and chasing N.C. State for last place in the league.
"It looks like we came over to watch Carolina play," Tacy
said. "This can happen easily. You start oft tentatively, things
get worse. You can't do that against a tearfflikVthis." "
Michael Jordan, who displayed the best of his Ail-American
talents, had a much more concise summation. "We played a

The Associated Press
WASHINGTON President Reagan
declared in an election-year State of the
Union address Wednesday night that
"America is back, standing tall," and
sought constitutional power to trim spen
ding and stem the federal deficit without .
raising taxes.
Hours after engaging House Speaker
Thomas P. O'Neill in a bitter exchange
over policy in the Middle East, Reagan,
told a joint session of Congress he is
determined to keep American forces in
Lebanon because the United States must
never be turned away by "state
sponsored terrorism."
Reagan asked congressional leaders to
join him in developing a "down
payment" on the federal deficit by enac
ting "some of the less contentious spen
ding cuts" he already has proposed and
by closing tax loopholes. But he rejected
tt major tax boost as a "Band-aid to cure
an illness that has been coming on for
half a century."
The president proposed one costly new
item a permanent manned space sta
tion, costing $8 billion over 10 years, "to
develop our next frontier."
He asked for a constitutional amend
ment to give him "line-item" authority to
veto selected congressional projects
without killing entire money bills a
power long sought hand always denied
his predecessors. He repeated his support
for a so-called balanced-budget amend
ment that would make it more difficult
for Congress to approve red-ink spen
ding. Reagan's own budget plan, due
next week, is expected to carry a deficit of
$180 billion.
The president said his administration
would later propose a total overhaul of
the federal tax code in "an historic
reform for fairness, simplicity and incen
tives for growth." His timetable called
for Treasury Secretary Donald T. Regan
to draw up recommendations ' by
December a month after the election.
Reagan was greeted by the traditional
standing ovation upon. his arrival in the
House chamber at 9:01 p.m. EST. But
Democrats sat on their hands until they
punctuated with a cheer his statement
that "we must bring federal deficits
down." They roared even louder when he
added: "How we do that makes all the
The president's visit to the Capitol was
marked by the tightest security measures
ever witnessed there. While Reagan
spoke, his wife, Nancy, watched from the
gallery. House and Senate members, the
Cabinet and diplomats were seated in the
chamber. The diplomatic corps arrived en
masse aboard buses, as part of the securi
ty precautions.
In words directed to Soviet leaders,
Reagan said "there is only one sane
policy, for your country and mine, to
preserve our civilization in this modern
age: A nuclear war cannot be won and
must never be fought."
Negotiations to reduce medium- and
long-range U.S. and Soviet nuclear
weapons were broken off by the Soviets
following the deployment of new U.S.
missiles in Europe. Reagan said the
superpowers arsenals were intended to ;
make sure neither uses the weapons. He :
asked: "Would it not be better to do
away with them entirely?"
He called on the nation to unite "to
keep America free, secure and at peace in
the '80s," and said that it is now "safer,
stronger, and more secure in 1984 than :
before. We can now move with con-:
fidence to seize the opportunities for
peace, and we will."
With Republicans as well as Democrats
sharply critical of his failure to close the
gap between spending and income, and
an upcoming budget plan that will in
clude a near-record $180 billion deficit,
Reagan turned to the leaders of the
House and Senate to begin negotiations
on a plan to reduce the deficit.
Reagan, who has been unable to
achieve half ot the. spending cuts he has
'sought, said that some changes in the tax
laws and passage of "some of the less
contentious spending cuts still pending
before Congress" could cut the deficit by
about $100 billion over three years.

Chip Medlin, a junior history major
from Kinston, has announced his can
didacy for student body president.
"The success that Hugh Reckshun had
last year inspired me to enter the can
didacy," Medlin said. "It showed me
that students were disenchanted with
their student government. I sympathize
with them. For the past year I've had the
opportunity to watch student government
from the outside from the average stu
dent's point of view.
"When you're part of the Suite C
crowd, you know what's going on
because you're there everyday. But they,
don't effectively communicate things
back to the students. This needs to be im
proved. I offer a fresh perspective on stu
dent government," he said.
If elected, Medlin said he would
restructure the cabinet to avoid overtax
ing student government with unimpor
tant issues. "We need to answer existing
questions, such as student apathy and
What do you do for me? ' before tackling
new problems," he said.
A second area where Medlin said there
was room for improvement was in the
relationship between students and the
town of Chapel Hill. "It seems that I
come back to Chapel Hill each fall and
find that the town council has passed
some type of ordinance affecting
students, such as noise control or public
consumption," Medlin said. "If we're to
be affected by the town's laws, then we
should have some say-so in how these
laws are made."
On the subject of dormitory telephone
service, Medlin said that "student
government can't force the issue one way
or the other. The existing phones will be
taken out at the end of spring, and
modular jacks will be installed. For now,
students on campus will be treated just
like regular phone customers." A change

Women's salaries at the full-professor level at UNC averaged
$6,600 less than those of their male counterparts in 1982-83, but
University officials say the gap is closing.
Male professors earned an average salary of $43,000, with
females at the same level earning $36,400, according to a
1982-83 report compiled by the National Center for Education
Statistics. The study indicates that the higher the rank, the larger
the difference between the salaries of male and female faculty
members. UNC assistant professors average $24,500 if they are
male and $22,500 if they are female a difference of $2,000.
Jeffrey H. Orleans, special assistant to UNC President
William C. Friday, attributes most of the salary differences to
"The faculty members who were hired 10 or 15 years ago
were almost exclusively men," Orleans said. "What creates the
gap in average salaries is the fact that there are predominantly
male educators at higher ends."
The data, published last week in the Chronicle of Higher
Education, revealed that the aggregate average salary of women
in the top three professorial ranks nationwide was $23,487,
while the men in those ranks averaged $29,001. The average
salaries of female full professors, associate professors and assis
tant professors were lower than those of males in every state, the
survey shows.
"Studies such as this are misleading," said Harold G.
Wallace, UNC acting Affirmative Action officer. The statistics
from a single year fail to show the progress being made, he said.
"We still have a gap, but we're working hard to close that
gap. Relatively speaking, we've made progress."
Hough says missile conflict overblown
Eventually, male and female salaries will be the same, Wallace
said. The gap has closed over the past 15 years, and as women
attain higher-level positions in the UNC system, the difference
will narrow.
"You can't compare averages and get an accurate picture of
the situation," Orleans said. The faculty members who have
been with the University for several years earn more than those
who have been recently hired, he said.
The study shows that the gap in North Carolina is smaller
than in all but 13 other states. The average female educator in
N.C. colleges and universities both public and private
earned $4,000 less than her male counterpart in 1982-83, as op
posed to a national gap of $5,514, according to the study.
The salary gap is smaller at two UNC system schools. The
average salaries of women at UNC-Greensboro is higher than
those of men in all three professorial ranks. According to the
study, women at the full-professor level at UNC-G earn an
average of $36,800, while men at the same level earn $36,600.
The only level at UNC-G where men earn more than women is
instructor. Instructors at UNC-G earn an average salary of
$17,700 if they are female and an average of $18,700 if they are
Female professors at N.C. A&T State University in
Greensboro earn average salaries of $30,200, while their male
counterparts average $30,400, a difference of only $200, the
report said. Women at A&T earn an average of $200 more than
men at the associate-professor level.

University in Winston-Salem, where full professors earn an

U.S. introduction of Cruise and Pershing II
missiles in Western Europe has increased the
chances of war from one in fifty thousand to
one in twenty-five thousand, a Duke University
political science professor said Wednesday
But, Gerald Hough, a noted Kremlinologist
at Duke and the Brookings Institution, said the
public image of President Reagan as a war
monger was false.
Hough spoke before about 75 people in Dey
Hall as part of "Great Decisions '84," spon
sored by the UNC Office of International Pro
grams. "He's not as dangerous as his rhetoric sug
gests," Hough said of Reagan. VHe's from the
right wing of the Republican party and he holds
the old isolationist attitude.
"It's the idea that if we build enough rockets
and ships, we can have a. safe island," he said.
The effectiveness of Reagan's strategy of
building up the U.S. as a "Fortress America"
depends on where, and on what countries, it is
applied, he said.
"If you invade Grenada or Nicaragua... the
Soviets aren't going to get their hands in it,"
Hough said. "In Libya, the Soviet Union has
gone out of its way to . not have a
committment," he said.
Hough also dispelled Defense Secretary
Caspar Weinberger's warning of a Soviet attack
on Western Europe with conventional forces.
"Europe is quite stable," Hough said. "The
Soviets don't even have any interest in Western
Despite the stability of these sites of East
West confrontation, Hough said the introduc
tion of the Pershing and Cruise missiles had
made diplomatic relations between the super
powers "pathological" and unpredictable.
Hough attributed the current stalemate in the
Geneva arms talks to two events: the introduc
tion of Soviet SS-20 missiles in Eastern Europe
in the mid-70s, and the arms buildup of the
United States under President Reagan.
The United States and the Soviet Union had
an informal agreement to keep the number of
. nuclear warheads on both sides to 650
throughout the '60s and the early '70s, he said.
Then the USSR made what Hough called "one
of the greatest blunders of the '70s" by secretly
replacing their old SS-4 and SS-5 missiles with
the more accurate SS-20s targeted at Eastern
"I kept saying, You ic scaring the West half,
to death," Hough told Russian political scien
tists during visits to the Soviet Union. "They
said, 'We're giving you an incentive to come to
the bargaining table "
The parallels of the Soviets' rationale for the
SS-20 with Reagan's strategy with the Cruise
and Pershing lis drew laughter from the au
dience of students and faculty.
Hough said the Reagan strategy would not
"If this administration thinks the Pershings
and Cruise are going to bring the Soviets to the
bargaining table, they're engaging in some enor
mous wishful thinking," he said, adding that
the U.S. resolve has already backfired in
Hough said what he saw as the solution to the
Lebanon fallout in the U.S. the withdrawal
of Marines and entry of a U.N. peacekeeping
force was impossible with the current state of
relations."- '.-'
Hough explained the attitude of the Soviet
government toward U.S. deployment of cruise
and Pershing missiles in Western Europe.
"We could hit Moscow and all their missiles
would be sitting there, because the leader who
has the authority to push the button would be
dead and there would be no warning. Why
should they help us get out of our mess in
"Their (the Soviet Union's) purpose in the
Middle East now is to make life as difficult for
(us) as possible," Hough said.
