Senior-led North Carolina wins A CC tourney
By LEE ROBERTS
North Carolina's senior third baseman
Jeff Hubbard had a big smile on his face
Saturday night at Durham Athletic Park,
and why not?
Hubbard and his Tar Heel teammates
had just beaten Georgia Tech, 9-4, for a
five-game sweep of the ACC and UNC's
third consecutive ACC tournament
"Everyone in the ACC was out to get
us," Hubbard said. "Nobody wants us to
win, which made it so much more fun to
win this tourney in five straight games."
Coach Mike Roberts said that it was
the leadership of North Carolina's seniors
that brought the Tar Heels their success.
"Our winning mental attitude came
from the seniors," Roberts said. "They
helped our younger players play better
because of their attitude. That's why I'm
most pleased for them."
Hubbard was on base 15 times during
the four-day affair, while senior second
baseman Mitch McCleney held up the
middle of the infield with his heady play
and timely hitting. But perhaps the most
inspiring senior was Todd Wilkinson,
who hit .471, with four home runs and 10
RBIs, earning himself distinction as the
tourney's Most Valuable Player.
"This feels super," the teary-eyed
Wilkinson said. "We're on top of the
ACC right now, and it's extra special
because I'm a senior. I didn't want to lose
the last ACC game I ever played in.

"I'm shocked about the MVP,"
Wilkinson added. "It feels so good. All
those hours of hard work have finally
McCleney was just as elated.
"Nobody thought we could do it," he
said. "They said we couldn't win it when
they took it (the tournament) away from
Boshamer Stadium and that we didn't
have enough pitching. But we hung
together as a team. This is just the
greatest bunch of guys in the world."
While Roberts gave a lot of credit to his
-three seniors, he hurried to corrtpliment
"the rest of this squad that finished at 42-9.
"This was a total team effort,"
Roberts said. "People who didn't play a
major role in the ACC games in the
regular season ending up playing major
roles in the tourney."
Roberts pointed to the pitching perfor
mances turned in by freshmen Ken
Turner and Doug Torborg and
sophomore Steve McGuire, quieting the
skeptics who had accused UNC of having
a two-man pitching staff.

out 10 Wake Forest batters in a tourney

UNC handicapped housing policy
may lead to creation of "ghettos"
By STEVE FERGUSON
Assistant University Editor
Only two of the 21 North Campus
dormitories are accessible to mobility im
paired students, and the situation may be
creating a "handicapped ghetto," accord
ing to some mobility impaired students.
However, UNC administration officials
said making more North Campus dormi
tories accessible to handicapped students
would be expensive and difficult consider
ing the age and construction of the
Grimes and Ruffin are the two dormi
tories with access ramps, and since there
are no elevators, only the first floors are
open to mobility impaired students.
"1 think in Grimes and Ruffin it could
potentially become a ghetto," said Grimes
resident Gregory Capps, a junior
psychology major who is confined to a
wheelchair. "I think they need to work on
getting more dorms available, especially
for handicapped students in wheelchairs."
Russell Perry, associate director of
operations for University Housing and
chairman of an ad hoc committee on
handicapped housing concerns, said the
North Campus situation was a form of
"In a degree it is (discrimination),"
Perry said, "but to make buildings on
North Campus accessible, we would have
to make tremendous expenditures." If the
money were available to build the
facilities, University Housing would be
willing to do it, he said. Most North Cam
pus dormitories were built in the 1800s or
early 1900s without the handicapped in
mind, he added.
"I think that the handicapped students
are clustered together," said Laura
Thomas, coordinator for handicapped stu
dent services. "I won't disagree with the
term (handicapped ghetto)."

McGuire put in his part. McGuire pitched
six-plus innings Saturday getting a 7-6
win over Clemson and knocking the
Tigers out of the tournament.
The win marked McGuire's first ACC
win since he had two arm operations over
the last three years.
"He's proved that his arm is fully
recovered," pitching coach Howard Mc
Cullough said later. "There were a lot of
times of agony for him over those two
years, but he did a great job today."
On Saturday night against Georgia
Tech, freshman.Torborg drew the starting
assignment in the championship game.
People in the press box were questioning
Torborg's presence on the mound after
the first two Yellow Jacket hitters in the
first inning had slammed home runs for a
2-1 Tech lead. But Torborg settled down,
allowing nothing after that and gaining
the victory in five innings of work.
But there were more heroes than that.
Like reliever Gordon Douglas, who pick
ed up three saves in the tournament, in
cluding two on Saturday. With the tying
run on third base and one out in the ninth
inning against Clemson Saturday,
Douglas struck out the next two Tigers
for a 7-6 win. Later that night, he com
bined with Bob Mulligan to shut down
Georgia Tech after Torborg was finished.
students live in Grimes, three in Ruffin
and four in Craige.
The best alternative for making more
spaces available to handicapped students is
in South Campus dormitories, according
to Wayne Kuncl, director of University
Housing. Still, funding is a problem, he
"The only sources of money we have at
the time are the students' rent dollar," said
Kuncl. "We're looking to see if we can get
funds from other sources. South Campus
is the most cost effective option we have
The ad hoc committee agreed with
Kuncl about the importance of improving
South Campus availability.
"A student in a wheelchair can visit
someone in Hinton James,' Craig, Ehr
inghaus or Morrison, but they can't live
there," Thomas said. The only exceptions
are two suites in Craige and one in Mor
rison that have had bathrooms adapted to
be wheelchair accessible, Thomas said.
According to Perry, the housing office
adapts the room to the particular student's
handicap. "We work with each handicap
they have, and customize the room to help
the student," Perry said.
"I support the ad hoc committee's deci
sion to go to South Campus," said
Thomas. According to the committee's
study, Ehringhaus is the best alternative
for new access suites.
Nancy Brown Brewer, a senior history
major, lives in Craig and is mobility im
paired. "I realize (the clustering) exists," she
said, "but being on the committee, I have
a little better understanding of why it
exists. For the last two or three years, the
North Carolina legislature has made zero
dollars available for barrier removal."
Measures have been taken to alleviate
the problem, Brewer said. The new dormi
tory under construction will be fully ac
cessible, and a new system will be made
to the' tourney title.

night's slugfest with N.C. State.

The sophomore from Greenville threw
166 pitches and left after two were out in
the seventh inning, ahead 13-10.
Asked why he kept Williams in the

Roger has a lot of intestinal fortitude
he's a winner. And you don't pull win
ners out of a big game quick."
B.J. Surhoff, who had a disappointing
.227 average in the tourney despite hitting
the ball hard, nonetheless stole five bases
and also clubbed a crucial three-run
homer in the N.C. State victory, putting
North Carolina into an 8-6 lead.

"That was one of the greatest college
games I've ever been in," Wilkinson said
later. "You can't really say State lost. It

Walt Weiss was the batting hero of the
Saturday afternoon game. Weiss belted a
three-run home run batting lefthanded to
give North Carolina a 6-2 lead in the

home run from the right side to give the
Tar Heels a 7-5 lead in the 7-6 win.

Brewer agreed the North Campus situa
tion was a problem.
"While I admit that it's bad, I admit it's
ghettoization, it's just something that you
have to be patient with," she said.
Wheelchair students should have the
option of being in North Campus if they
so desire, Capps said. "Some students are '
just not going to want to live down there
(on South Campus)," he said.
According to Perry, no changes are
planned for North Campus "unless we get
a tremendous influx of handicapped
students. Everything on South Campus is
available to us."
According to a committee study, the
best North Campus dormitories to adapt
to mobility impaired students would be
Manly and Mangum, if the money
becomes available, Perry said. They would
be the most practical options because
mobility impaired students wouldn't have
to cross the street to get to most University
buildings, he said. The estimated cost
would be $33,000.
"Carolina is becoming the place to go if
you're disabled," Brewer said, because the
University has the only handicapped ser
vices office in the 16-carnpus UNC system.
"We're having a higher number of handi
capped people coming here, and the
University did not look ahead when they
made Grimes and Ruffin accessible."
With the work of the committee and the
cooperation of the administration, UNC is
now taking positive steps toward making
more rooms available to mobility impaired
students, Brewer said.
"1 think they're doing a lot, but it's so
new to so many people," she said.
Kuncl said his concern as director of
housing is that space be accessible to
anyone who comes to UNC, and that they
not be hindered by housing restrictions.
Votes to raise
By STEVE FERGUSON
Assistant University Kditur
The UNC Board of Trustees voted
unanimously Friday to forbid the use of
mopeds or any sort of motorized vehicle
on campus sidewalks, landscapes or grass.
UNC officials are asking for voluntary
compliance with the decision until it takes
effect on July 1 .
Vice Chancellor Farris Womack's traf
fic and parking advisory committee
recommended in March that all motorized
vehicles be banned on campus. The com
mittee has been studying the problem since
fall of 1982.
Violators can get a $60 maximum fine.
Charles Antle, ex-officio committee
member, said in March that enforcement
would be a difficulty.
"What do you do if a campus police of
ficer sees somebody what does he do,
run after them?" Antle said. A lot of
warning tickets will be given out before
strict enforcement begins, he said.
"We don't want to discourage people to
use them," Antle said last month. "Many
what we're trying to do is keep them off
The committee is considering the addi
tion of bicycle racks to the outer perimeter
of the campus, for students who ride
mopeds to campus but won't be allowed
to ride them on campus grounds, Antle
said. The committee's recommendation
did not include bicycles, he said.

Too many grad students
accepted by UNC's English
department, student says
By RAY JONES
A graduate student in English has
charged that because too many students
are admitted into the graduate program,
fewer necessary teaching assistantships
are available for them. But the director of
composition in the English department
said the cuts were in line with the estab
Bill Gargan, who has been working
toward his doctorate in English, said he
had to take this past year off to find work
after he was not reappointed to a teaching
assistantship. "That salary is support as
you work for the Ph.D.," he said. "And
there aren't many of us who can go to
school here without it."
Gargan said the problem is that the
department is admitting too many people
into the program and therefore fewer stu
dents can get TA positions. "They have
failed to recognize overadmission, even in
the face of an abysmal job market. It's
just to fill graduate classes," he said.
Connie Eble, director of graduate
studies, suggested there could have been
too many students admitted. "But it's be
cause of the size of our program that we
can offer the courses we do," she said.
"We are not admitting unqualified peo
ple. We're offering 20 graduate courses a
semester, and very few schools around
the country can offer this diversity."
According to Erika Lindemann, direc
tor of composition and the freshman
English program, the number of teaching
assistantships awarded each year depends
on the size of the budget the department
expects to have and how many freshmen
enroll the following fall semester.
Lindemann said she set the policy on
TA selection. She said the policy is to
consider the quality of the graduate's
work, quality of teaching, student evalua
tions, normal progress toward the degree,
classroom observations and the number
of sections already taught.
Gargan said, "the question is, what
does the English department owe
graduate students? TAs give them
cheaper teaching. Look at what they save
compared to paying a professor to teach a
Gargan also said faculty members
didn't want to teach English 1 and 2.
"We aren't getting job security or job
placement," he said.
Eble said, "What the department owes
grads is a good education. They're
tuition-paying people. We do not owe
them a teaching assistantship."
The department gcs graduate
students training and teaching

pitiful stipend," she added. "I'd like to
see them get paid more. I'd like to see
professors get paid more. I'd like to see
scholarships pay more."

Eble stressed that graduate students
must be responsible enough to handle all
the requirements. "The program is
long," she said. "It is arduous. True, we
need to make changes so they can go
through the program more quickly.
Maybe we should change our philosophy
(from helping a lot of people a little to
helping a few people a lot). Maybe we
should hack the program by half. But I
don't think that's going to solve the prob
lem." 'What the depart
ment owes grads is a

Lindemann emphasized that the
department does no recruiting and warns
students in the beginning about the job
market. "Eble personally sits down with
all of them and tells them what the job
market is like," she said.
"These people were given the choice of
.whether to come here or not," Eble said.
"1 don't encourage people to pursue a
doctorate in English. I'd love to have the
money to support everyone, but we just
can't do it."
Gargan suggested the admissions
policy be more directly tied to the number
of sections available for TAs, and they
should admit no more graduates than
there are teaching positions to see them
through the entire program.
"The policy is mismanagement," he
said. "I was led to believe that I would
have some teaching to see me through my
degree, and now I don't. That policy has
been set by administrators who don't
look at the situations of the students. The
faculty has just not monitored the ad
ministrative situation. It's an abdication
Lindemann called the charge unfair
and hurtful. "I don't think that's true,
and I think the faculty would be angry to
hear that," she said.
Concerning the belief that teaching
assistantships were supposed to carry a
student through his degree, Lindemann
said, "1 know that's not the case. There's
no place anywhere that says you're
guaranteed support. We have guidelines
outlining criteria for reappointment to an
assistantship. This year's group has had
two years' warning as to what those
"You read the guidelines or you
don't," she said. "We provide them so
the graduate students will know what

Lindemann suggested he file an appeal.
