John Inman shows the form that brought him the championship
Inman wins NCAA title
By JOEL CURRAN
Tar Hed Staff Writer
Fueled by a sizzling final round of
five under par, UNC senior John In
man set a Houston Bear Creek Golf
Course record Saturday and reached
the pinnacle of collegiate golf by cap
turing the NCAA Individual Cham
pionship. Inman's three day total of 15 under
par surpassed the 13 year NCAA rec
ord for the individual championship
previously held by former University of
Texas golfer Ben Crenshaw, now a
touring professional. Together with
sophomore Davis Love's tournament
total of four under par, the two were
able to pace UNC to a respectable
fourth place finish behind the Univer
sity of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State;
the University of Houston finished the
tournament seven under par to take the
Inman, who entered the tournament
after a strong showing in the recent
North-South Amateur, began the final
round of play by firing an eagle on the
first hole. He promptly sank a 20-foot
birdie on the second, and then blazed
through the course with birdies on
holes 14, 15 and 17. UNC head coach
Devon Brouse called Inman's play
"We're all very happy for John,"
said Brouse. "He has spent four years
in a very good program and has always
set high goals for himself."
Inman has shown a steady rise to the
top since his sophomore year when he
won the ACC championship and re
ceived third team All-American honors.
Last year he was named to the second
team Ail-American squad and this sea
son helped the Tar Heels win the ACC
golf crown, along with nabbing the
NCAA's top individual honor.
Inman's title and Love's North
South Amateur victory has certainly
placed 1984 among one of the best
years ever for the UNC golf program.
"I think that John's honor and the
team's strong showing will definitely
give our program great exposure and

Chapel Hill Town Council
Off-peak bus fares to rise
By JAMAL EL-HINDI
Tar Heel Staff Writer
Off-peak bus fares will increase 25
percent following a Chapel Hill Town
Council decision to raise prices despite
transportation board reluctance.
Other decisions in Tuesday's session
included a disapproval of council salary
increases, an adoption of a performance-based
pay system, and an defer
ral of a housing development approval.
Fares will rise from 40 to 50 cents for
adults and from 20 to 25 cents for
senior citizens, youths and the handi
capped during off-peak hours. Town
Manager David Taylor recommended
the bus fare hikes despite transporta
tion board fears of reduced ridership.
While the decision was unanimous,
council members Marilyn Boulton and
Jonathan Howes voiced concern over
the transportation board's projections.
"As an advisory board, it is their pur
pose to let us know of these things,"
Boulton said. "We should pay atten
tion if they say the increase will lead to
"The transportation board should
be able to say, 'We told you so,' if they
are right and we are wrong," Howes
Mayor Joe Nassif explained the deci
sion as a way to spread continuing fare
increases over time. The council had
opted to increase fares gradually in
stead of all at once, he said.
In a five to four decision, the council
rejected a proposal from member Win
ston Broadfoot to raise their salaries
$1,000. Broadfoot, who initiated last
year's decision to reduce the mayor's
salary from $10,000 to $7,000, said the
increases would put council salaries in
closer proportion to the mayor's figure
and approximate statewide averages.
Broadfoot also called for an increase
in a council's salary of $1,000. Cur
rently, the council member salaries are
$3,000 per year.
Members David Pasquini and R.D.
Smith opposed the measure as a matter
of principle. "I find it hard to accept
public officials raising their own sala
ries," Pasquini said.
Smith said that he had never voted
for a council salary increase, but he
raised an unseconded motion to restore
the mayor's $10,000 figure.
Nassif criticized the council for "nit
picking" with their salary budgets. "If
you add it all together, it's peanuts
compared to the whole budget," he
Nassif questioned the council's "see
sawing" in the matter. "It's ironic that
the mayor's salary decrease was brought
up by a member who had the salary in
creased when he was mayor," Nassif
Nassif advised the council to think
of what each office entailed and urged
them to be strong in their decision:
"You are not ripping off this town. I
encourage you to set salaries where you
want them," he said. The council look
ed to statewide salary averages, but it
never settled for "average" community
services, he said.
The council deferred a proposed 61

U.S. Stingers worry Israel
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Arens
is registering his concern over the delivery of 400 U.S. anti
aircraft missiles to Saudi Arabia despite assurances of "strict
safeguards" to keep the Stingers from terrorists.
The deal authorized Tuesday by President Reagan per
mits the Saudis to deploy the missiles anywhere on their ter
ritory or on tankers carrying oil through the Persian Gulf.
"They are purely defensive in every sense of the word," said
Larry Speakes, the White House spokesman.
But having faced Saudi arms in four Mideast wars, Israel
is worried the missiles might be trained on them, fall into the
hands of rebels if the monarchy is overthrown or be taken
over by terorists.
However, the sale is final and cannot be reversed by Con
gress since Reagan invoked his emergency powers, so Arens
docs not plan to dwell on the issue in a meeting with Defense
Secretary Caspar W. Weingberger and at a lunch at the
U.S. arms sales was the likely topic at the luncheon, and
top Pentagon and State Department officials in the security
field will attend.
Besides, U.S.-Israeli relations are warm, and the two gov
ernments are making unpublicized but steady headway on
military cooperation in the Middle East. "We're expecting a
judicious exposition," said a State Department official be
fore Arens arrived.
He said Israel shares U.S. concerns about the war in the
Persian Gulf and a potential decline in oil supplies through
out the world.
Despite reports: Tass says Sakharov doing fine
The Stingers are shoulder-fired missiles with a range of
three miles and can be used against low-flying attack planes.
"It's an answer to an emergency situation in the Gulf that
threatens Saudi shipping and Saudi shipping lanes,"
However, a diplomat who declined to be identified
doubted the Stingers would make a difference. He said they
were useless aboard a ship and ineffective against planes
because of their short range. " .
Americans will train the Saudis to operate the missiles and
will fly tankers to refuel the F-15 jet Fighters sold to the
Saudis during the Carter administration. In addition to the
Stingers, Reagan ordered American-piloted KC-10 tanker
planes to help in refueling Saudi fighter planes.
Pentagon spokesman Michael Burch said the refueling
"will take place in Saudi airspace, most likely over the land
Reagan said at a news conference last week the possibility
of direct U.S. intervention in the 44-month war between
Iran and Iraq was "very slight."

three already at the Saudis' disposal, the adrninistration b

The Saudis also requested bomb racks for their 62 F-15
jets, but the United States declined, officials here said.
The Pentagon said the Saudis will pay $40 million for the
missiles and the cost of U.S. personnel training the Saudis to
use the weapons, which carry fragmentation warheads and

planes. The Stinger is about 5 feet long and weighs about

MOSCOW Andrei D. Sakharov is
feeling well and eating regularly, the
official news agency Tass said Wednes
day, contradicting reports that the
prominent Soviet dissident is on hunger
A friend of Sakharov's reported
May 8 that the 63-year-old Nobel Peace
Prize winner began a hunger strike May
2 to try to persuade Soviet authorities
to grant his wife, Yelena Bonner, an
exit visa for medical treatment abroad.
But Tass said today: "What about a
hunger strike? Here are the exact medi
cal facts: Sakharov feels himself well, is
eating regularly and carries out an ac
tive way of life."
A Soviet source said earlier Wednes
day that Sakharov had been taken to a
hospital Friday because of complica
tions from his fast.
The Tass report did not say whether
Sakharov was in the hospital or at
home in the closed city of Gorky, 250
miles east of Moscow. He was ordered
into internal exile in Gorky in 1980.
