refused yesterday to grant clemency for
convicted murderer Velma Barfield,
who is scheduled to die Nov. 2 for
poisoning her boyfriend.
"Mrs. Barfield should pay the max
imum penalty for her crimes, Hunt said
at a news conference at about 5:15 p.m.
in his state Capitol office. "There is no
question of her guilt.
"After carefully looking at the issues,
I don't believe that the ends of justice
or deterrence would be served by my
intervention in this case, Hunt said.
I cannot in good conscience justify
making an exception to the law as
enacted by our state Legislature, or
overruling those 12 jurors who, after
hearing the evidence, concluded that
Mrs. Barfield should pay the maximum
penalty for her brutal actions, he said.

The UNC athletic department has
suffered from several misconceptions
concerning the revenues and expendi
tures of its $9.13 million budget,
according to UNC Athletic Director
"Many people think we receive state
funds, and we dont," Swofford said.
"We dont use Educational Foundation
money either. We're required to be a
financially self-sustaining organization.
We receive no University or state
funding other than the student fee
money." More than $1 million in
student fees goes to the department each
A second resource is the scholarship
budget, projected at $1.5 million this
year, which is paid by private contri
butions to the Educational Foundation,
also known as the Rams Club. The
foundation is the primary fund raising
institution on campus, although the
athletic department itself is also an
integral part of the fund-raising.
"The ACC is way ahead of the rest
of the nation in terms of fund-raising,"
Swofford said. "If you ranked the top

Athletic department plans development center
By SCOTT FOWLER
Assistant Sports Editor
The UNC athletic department will
fund a $1.4 million student-athlete
development center to be located
adjacent to Kenan Fieldhouse and
tentatively scheduled to be completed
in the spring of 1986, Athletic Director
John Swofford said yesterday.
"The center will serve several pur
poses," Swofford said. "It will be a two
story facility, with the upstairs devoted
to academic counseling. It will contain
a small language lab, a computer room,
tutor's offices, reading rooms, a room
to be used for our study halls and an
office that could be used periodically
by a sports psychologist"
The bottom level of the facility will
house a weight room and a rehabili
tation center. UNC trainers and sports
medicine personnel will staff the first
"We're very positive about anything
that will help our team, but this year
may be a transition period. No one has

would come from the ACC. The ACC
got started with it earlier because our
football stadiums aren't as large and
didn't generate as large a ticket revenue.
So the need arose sooner."
Both budgets considered, the athletic
department apportions over $10 million
a year, most of it going directly to
UNC's 26 varsity sports. Some is kept
each year in a reserve fund.
"In 1 976 when I came here as assistant
athletic director the program had had
three straight years of operating in the
red and we had depleted the reserve
fund to $38,000," Swofford said. "Since
then weVe been able to operate in the
black, and the reserves have gotten back
The reserve fund currently has over
$2 million in it. "Well turn around and
put some of that money into developing
and maintaining quality facilities for
our athletes, like the tennis center,"
Swofford said, referring to a $350,000
complex to be completed in spring 1985
at the old Country Club courts.
A much bigger expenditure will be
an academic development center for
student-athletes. The UNC Board of
Trustees recently approved $1.4 million
for that project.
The tennis and student-athlete centers
will bring the reserve fund down to

floor. The center will be connected by
a breezeway to Kenan Fieldhouse.
"It will be a support service for the
student-athletes," said Paul Hoolahan,
assistant athletic director.
Farris Womack, vice chancellor of
business and finance, said the idea for
the development center was not new.
"Mr. Swofford discussed the idea with
me about a year ago. It was proposed
and approved at the last meeting of the
Board of Trustees . . . that must have
been in late August," Womack said.
The $1.4 million cost is projected,
since sealed bids have not been accepted
yet, Swofford said. The money will
come out of the athletic department
reserve fund, which currently contains
a little over $2 million. A large portion
of that revenue came as a result of ticket
sales and television contracts for
football and men's basketball.
but the cheerleaders seemed effective so
we thought we would try it without the
mikeman after last season's confusion,"
Yesulaitis said. "Just because we dont
have a mikeman now doesnt mean the
idea is a dead issue by any means."
Ward's game routine was criticized
by students and alumni as being in poor
taste, and included racial and ethnic
jokes as well as jokes with sexual

In January of 1984, Bob Windsor,

article saying Gov. Jim Hunt was
receiving money from gay political
activists. This prompted groups such as

to send letters of boycott to the
businesses that advertise in The Land

The Mental Health department of

Gay Awareness Week is scheduled for

"It should go out for bid about
November," Swofford said. "We have
to totally settle on the design first. It
usually takes several months once you
begin accepting sealed bids, so spring
would be a realistic guess as to when
we break ground. Then it would take
around a year to complete."
Swofford said he believed the facility
was needed partly to consolidate and
improve the athletic study system. "At
times the athletic study halls have been
held in the Rams Room (in the field
house) or on campus. The academic
counselors offices are presently in
Kenan fieldhouse. This will help bring
all those things together.
"We feel like the center is very
consistent with our dedication to having
a balance between athletics and academ
ics. (The center) will be a tremendous
addition to the campus," Swofford said.
