Tar Heels nse,5econd-half run to crush Tech
From staff and wire reports
ATLANTA North Carolina struggl
ed for a while Wednesday night before
Michael Jordan went to work, scoring
eight points during a 21-4 second half run
as the Tar Heels pulled away for a 69-56
victory over cold-shooting Georgia Tech.
"It was a rather strange game in that
the crowd didn't get into the game until
midway in the first half," UNC coach
Dean Smith said. "This was a good road
win for us."
"We were sharp defensively in the first
half, but were out-rebounded and were
not sharp offensively," Smith said.
"Then we were very sharp offensively in
the second half until we substituted with
about four minutes to play."

By failing to put pressure on Israel during the siege of Beirut
last year, the United States badly damaged the prestige of Arab
moderates friendly to the United States, Fouad Moughrabi, co
editor of the Arab Studies Quarterly and a professor at the
University of Tennessee in Chattanooga, said Wednesday nignx.
But moderate Arab regimes need all the support they can
find, he said.
"Most of them have no legitimacy in the eyes of the people
and have a very narrow socioeconomic base."
Sponsored by the UNC Office of International Programs as
the sixth of the Great Decisions '84 lecture series, the speech in
Dey Hall's Toy Lounge attracted about 80 students and faculty.
With American bankrolling, Israel had become an imperialist
nation willing to intervene militarily in countries as distant as
Iraq, he said. The Israeli invasion of Lebanon in the summer of
1982 had no reasonable justification, since the Palestinian
Liberation Organization had observed a cease-fire for almost a

Fifth in a series on candidates for
Former Charlotte mayor Eddie Knox
hasn't talked about it much. In campaign
speeches across the state since his entry
into the Democratic gubernatorial race in
April 1983, Knox has referred to it as
"that city," or "my experience as
mayor." But that city, Charlotte, figures
to be a major factor in the campaign.
History bodes ill for politicians from
Charlotte. Edward M. O'Herron, a
Democrat from Charlotte, ran unsuc
cessfully for governor in 1976, and the
Democratic U.S. Senate candidate in
1978, Luther Hodges Jr., also lost. But
perhaps the most troubling piece of
historical trivia for Knox is that the last
governor from Mecklenberg County was
Cameron Morrison in 1920.
"Maybe I've been a little sensitive to
it," Knox said. "But I've started to men

under 12 minutes remaining when Matt
Doherty started the 21-4 run by sinking a
Doherty added six points and Sam
Perkins five during the outburst that pro
duced a 58-38 lead with 4:50 remaining.
"Sam Perkins was sensational and
Matt Doherty and Steve Hale had nine
and eight assists the way we keep them,"
Smith said. "Hale did a super job in our
man-to-man on (Mark) Price in the first
half. Jordan was great in the second half.
You can't keep him down for long."
Smith was particularly pleased by the
win because of its meaning in conference
play. "It is a compliment to this team
that they won all of their road games (in
the ACQ," he said. "It'll be more even
more meaningful to finish undefeated
icy toward Israel
tion it recently." '
Knox said Charlotte's reputation could
be traced to his service in the N.C.
General Assembly. "When I went to the
legislature (in 1971 for the first of two
Senate terms), it came about because
Charlotte would disagree with everybody.
It's that old stigma of ineptness."
For his platform Knox hopes if elected
to increase the" training of North
Carolina's work force to meet the needs
of what he calls the high-tech "New In
formation Age." He said industrial
recruitment would bring the. high-tech
jobs into the state.
"I've been to Germany recruiting in
dustry. ... I believe I can sell North
Carolina better than anybody." The plan
known as Knox's "Education Equals
Jobs" platform, also calls for an in
dustrial recruiter in all counties with a
population of less than 50,000. .
The growth in the Research Triangle
Park must spiral outward to benefit the
unemployed in other areas of the state, he
said. "As long as the umbrella is the size
that it is now, that (unemployment) is go
ing to exist. What we have to do is offer

The Tar Heels will lock up their first
perfect ACC season under Smith with a
win Saturday against Duke.
The triumph gave Smith his 12th
25-victory season, the most in NCAA
history, breaking his tie with former
UCLA coach John Wooden.
Tech, which shot only 31 percent in the
first half and 37 percent for the game,

coach BobbyCremins said. "I don't

Arab moderate states aligned with the United States had
relied on the United States to prevent Israeli expansionism, he
said. These states Jordan and Saudi Arabia in particular
lost credibility when the United States took only symbolic ac
tions after the Israeli invasions, he said.
"It wasn't so much a defeat for the Palestinians. ...It was a
defeat for the forces of moderation, and I mean Saudi Arabia."
This instance of U.S. irresponsibility notwithstanding, the
United States holds the key to a solution of the Arab-Israeli fric
tion, he said.
. In Lebanon, shellfire from the USS New Jersey has killed
hundreds of civilians and is creating among Arabs a negative
view of Americans. The U.S. Marines in Beirut became the ob
ject of Druze attacks because the U.S. forces came to be seen as
a faction in the struggle for military and political control of
Lebanon, he said.

The other half of the Knox platform is
education, and he has called for the
establishment of an education commis
sion composed of academics to set the
state's program. Another key plank is
salary increases for teachers.
"Our teachers are paid $17,000 while
,the national level is $20,000," he said.
The extra monies to bring salaries up to
the national level could come from an $11
billion expansion of the tax base, Knox
said, generated by increases in fines and
license fees for beer and liqour permits.
During Knox's two. Senate terms,
1971-75, he sponsored a bill to make it
legal for students to consume beer on col
lege campuses. ."The reason I sponsored
that bill was the kids were going off the
campus and getting drunk," hie said, sug
gesting that university officials could

Price, the Yellow Jackets' leader and
playmaker, pointed to the poor shooting
effort by Tech as the key to the outcome.
"We didn't hit our shots," he said. "You
can't do anything if you don't hit your
shots against Carolina."
Jordan, who finished with a game-high
20 points, gave the Tar Heels their biggest
lead when he converted a three-point play

into trouble. "You could get kicked
out," he said. '
Knox, who said he had his first mixed
drink at 24, was unsure about North
Carolina's drinking age of 19 for wine
and beer. "Most laws are drawn on the
basis of probability. When we gave
18-year-olds the right to vote, I thought,
'why shouldn't they have the right to
drink?' I don't mind trying the 19-year-olds
as an experiment."
In the economic sector, Knox said
North Carolina must look for viable
alternatives to tobacco. "We need to
wake up. You cannot replace tobacco
with sweet potatoes. It's a cash crop and
we have to get ourselves out of this," he
But Knox said the tobacco support

Walter F. Mondale may have tripped
on "Heartbreak Hill" in New Hamp
shire, but he was running hard again
Wednesday, challenging Sen. Gary Hart
to a head-to-head competition in the up
coming Southern primaries.
At a news conference in Atlanta, Mon
dale noted that more than 60 percent of
all Southern delegates to the national,
convention will be selected during the
next three weeks.
"In my opinion, a potential nominee
of the Democratic party cannot write off
a major section of the country," he said.
"I challenge Mr. Hart, to bring his cam
paign to the whole South. T challenge him.
to compete with me here head-to-head.'
Asked about , Mondale's challenge,
Hart said, "I respond by asking him to
join me in a Southern swing through
Georgia, Florida and Alabama."
He told a news conference in Chicago
en route to Denver that he planned cam
paign stops in the three Southern states
on Thursday and then would return to
Georgia for a Jefferson-Jackson Day din
ner in Atlanta.
Hart, the surprise winner in Tuesday's
primary, thanked a group of New Hamp
shire voters before leaving the state that
launched him on what he insists will be a
two-man battle with Mondale for the
Democratic presidential nomination.
In Mississippi, the Rev. Jesse Jackson
declared that his fourth-place finish in
New Hampshire was a "high moment"
because he achieved that "in a
predominantly white state, over a former
governor and three senators. That shows
progress of race relations, and there is
growth taking place."

Sen. John Glenn, spent the first day after

Student memo gives
slate of suggestions

Representatives of UNC
undergraduates dramatic art majors sub
mitted a memo Wednesday to Samuel R.
Williamson, dean of the College of Arts

chair of the department of dramatic art,'
outlining the students' opinions about
departmental structure and policies.
The memo is an official record of sug
gestions that the undergraduates have
made to the dean and the department
before, according to Allison Hall and
Lori Delk, the undergraduate represen

purpose of the department and outlines
what was discussed in meeting with peo

department," said Delk, a senior in the.
department. "It doesn't say anything new
we just want our feelings' to go on the
record. It helps as far as credibility," she
According to' Hall, also a senior
dramatic art major, the memo is a
without reason. Knox was co-chairman
of Hunt's successful 1976 gubernatorial
campaign and was rewarded a year later
when Hunt engineered his selection by the
General Assembly to the post of chair
man of .North Carolina's Advisory
Budget Commission. The commission is a
12-member agency that advises the gover
nor and the legislature about how the
state can best spend its money. Most of
the commission's recommendations are
Knox also chaired a commission on
North Carolina's criminal justice system.
"The governor called it fair sentencing,"
Knox said of the commission's efforts to
remove prejudice from convictions and to
establish uniform sentencing guidelines
for offenses. "Many of the things he's
done, I've been talking about for years."
Knox and Hunt first met through the
Future Farmers of America in the 1950s
and later strengthened their friendship in
the late 1950s when they were students at
N.C. State University. The two used to
spend afternoons after classes watching

meanwhile, that he would bow out of the
race unless he finished in the top in the
Massachusetts primary March 13.
"Very frankly, my case is in the hands

told a Boston news conference. "If I were

finished last and said he would decide by
Friday whether to stay in the race.
Glenn insisted Wednesday that the race
is now open to the remaining seven con
tenders. Hart and Mondale's managers,
however, suggested it is a two-way fight. ,

Mondale may feel less strongly now, in
cluding those who have endorsed him,"
he said before flying home to Denver.
He added that the. New Hampshire

endorsement of Mondale union

the way they want.
