With the Rams Club raising almost
41 percent of the University's total
outside contributions, some faculty
members see a disproportion between
academics and athletics surfacing on
Doris Betts, chairman of the Faculty
Council, said faculty members began
questioning Rams Club's educational
purpose when the Student Activities
Center fundraising project started.
"The fund drive for that building
came about at the same time faculty
salaries were frozen," Betts said. "At the
same time, a lot of academic depart
ments were having trouble with phone
and postage bills. Faculty members look
at the situation and feel sports are

Sitting at 3-4 after two close wins,
North Carolina's football team is riding
the fence between an amazing recovery
from its sluggish start and an oppor
tunity to sink back into obscurity.
And right now, head coach Dick
Crum wants to reserve judgment on just
how far this team can go in the
remaining four weeks of its season.
"It's hard to know what this team's
full potential could be," Crum said at
his weekly press conference yesterday.
"It's hard to know how far it can go."
But one thing is, oh, so certain in
Crum's mind. "We're in this position
right now because of the attitude this
team has had," Crum said, noting that
after the Tar Heels 1 -4 start, most teams
would have packed it in.
Crum said that had it not been for
the senior leadership on the team taking
oyer during the hardest days of the early
season, the team might not have been
able to pull off pressure wins over N.C.
State and Memphis State (28-21 and
"This is as fine a group of youngsters
as I've ever been around," he said.
"They're the best practicing team I've
ever seen. They pay attention, they don't
fool around. If they play like they
practice, they're going to be awesome."
Two of the key elements to the Tar
Heels' turnaround has been the sizzling
performances of tailback Ethan Hor
ton, whose 209 yards against Memphis
lifted him to fourth in the nation in
rushing with 925 yards, and an offensive
line which has come together after a
series of devastating injuries early on.
"Ethan probably provided us with the
momentum and helped us do what we
needed to do to win (Saturday)," Crum
said. "That's the kind of game Ethan
plays best. He ran about 37 to 39 times,
and he wasnt all that tired after the
game. He probably could have played
Meanwhile, the offensive line has
been effective in clearing defenses the
last two weeks. Against N.C. State, the
Tar Heels ran for 350 yards. Against
Memphis State's fourth-ranked defense,
UNC primarily ran the sweep play en
route to 299 yards on the ground. Crum
said the combination of Harris Barton,
Brian Johnston, Bobby. Pope and Greg
Naron had worked out well.
"Johnston just had an outstanding
game at center," Crum said of Satur
day's effort. "He looked like he had been
lining up there for four years." Johnston
was moved from defensive tackle to
center before the N.C. State game. He
played most of his first two years at
"Bobby Pope played as well at tackle
as anyone has played here in a long
time," Crum said, noting that the right
side of the line was especially effective.
The turnover factor, which all but
killed the Tar Heels early, has taken
a turn for the better as far as UNC is
concerned. The Tar Heels took advan
tage of three of MSU's four turnovers
and did not turn the ball over in 81
"When you do that, you've got a good
chance to win it," Crum said.
North Carolina's takeaway-giveaway
ratio is 1, as the Tar Heels have given
up the ball 17 times but received on
Saturday, a red-hot Maryland team
comes to Kenan for a 12:20 kickoff, and
the Tar Heels must win to have any
chance at an ACC title. The Terrapins
are 5-3 after an 0-2 start, and their only
loss in six games was a 25-24 heart
breaker at Maryland.
The Tar Heels will enter the game
with numerous question marks at key
positions. They are:

Some faculty members felt frustrated
that the Rams Club could raise so much
money for the SAC when the academic
departments were suffering, Betts said.
Richard Soloway, professor of his
tory, agreed that the large sums of
money donated to the SAC project were
the source of some of the controversy.
"Money is the corrupting factor,"
Soloway said. "Where the money goes
and how it's spent really reflects the
values of an institution."
The Educational Foundation (Rams
Club) raised almost $6 million for the
SAC project in 1982-83, in addition to
the $1.5 million it raised for athletic
scholarships. But according to the
Educational Foundation's by-laws, the

life memberships starting in 1979.
Before the moratorium, a member
could donate $50,000 to endow a
scholarship in his name. Such contri
butions entitled donors to a life mem
bership with more privileges than other
Rams Club members.
Williamson said he disagreed with the
foundation's decision to impose the
moratorium because it seemed to
promote the SAC project above the
Rams Club's educational purpose.
"But people are individuals, and they
have different thoughts," Williamson
said. "And we still had some people
endow scholarships during the fundrais

the University's educational purpose.
The Rams Club was established to

Nor, he added, was the athletic depart

institutions for athletics and academics

El Salvadoran political figure
Roberto d'Aubuisson is involved in
death squad murders and has political
connections with Sen. Jesse Helms, said
investigative journalist Craig Peyes
before an audience of about 150 in
Hamilton Hali Tuesday night.
"I have proof that d'Aubuisson was
involved in the killings of so many
people in El Salvador. I talked to forty
people related to the death squads, and
I spoke with d'Aubuisson himself, for
eight hours," said Peyes, who writes for
the Albequerque Journal in New
A representative of the Helms' staff,
Matt Hamerick, was also scheduled to
appear to present the Helms position,
but did not show up.
"I am deeply upset that Mr. Hamer
ick could not show because when we
wrote these articles (in the Albequerque
Journal about death squads), Senator
Helms recognized them as garbage. He
said that d'Aubuisson was a victim of
irresponsible journalism and that he is
not really guilty of the charges brought
against him," said Peyes.
Peyes said he had seen private files
and letters written by d'Aubuisson while
he was in jail in 1980. He quoted a letter
as saying, "All I want is a free election
in the country . . . and to devise an anti
communist Campaign that is like that
one in Guatemala." But at the time of

"I am not opposed to sports or to
people giving money to athletics," Betts
said. "I think we (the UNC athletic
department) are more ethical than a lot
of other places are but that doesn't keep
me from saying the major purpose of
the University is an intellectual one."
Soloway said the growth of intercol
legiate athletics created a disproportion
at the University by placing too much
emphasis on athletics.
"The place is increasingly being seen
as an athletic factory and less an
institution of higher learning," Soloway
said. "I think that's had a negative effect
on the intellectual atmosphere of the
University. It's kind of ludicrous to have
to set up a faculty-student committee
to enhance the intellectual atmosphere

Peyes said a possible political con
nection exists between Senator Helms
and d'Aubuisson and that the two had
met in El Salvador. He quoted Billy
Sol, a friend of Helms, as saying that
"terrorism cannot be fought with
conventional methods. The only answer
is to equal it."
D'Aubuisson's rationale for his
activities comes from his sympathizers
in the U.S., Peyes said.

business is killing people but whose
rhetoric comes from the Republican

1980, "Come November our luck will

In 1982, Peyes said, there were death
squad activities and bombings which
d'Aubuisson admitted involvement in.
"We began to act incorrectly and not
take the people to a judge. We made
them disappear instead," Peyes quoted
d'Aubuisson as saying.
Peyes said d'Aubuisson and his right
wing organizations operated according
to a brutal, anti-leftist philosophy.
"To stop the spread of communists
you have to make sure their bodies are
not around . . . not only the guerrillas,
but their families, their friends." He said

they contribute to the environment."

as they exist today, do not benefit the

Political parties dominate national
and local politics, but at UNC, most
student politicos are on their own,
without a party platform to build on.
Fifteen years ago, political parties
dominated Student Government. And
this fall a group of students is working
to revive one of the parties.
From the early 30s to the late 60s,
campus politics were controlled by two
political parties. The University Party
catered to fraternity members while the
Student Party served non-Greeks.
These political parties were a breed
ing ground for North Carolina's leaders.
Former Governor and Duke University
President Terry Sanford and Congres
sional Club leader Tom Ellis were both
involved in the parties and made
connections that helped their careers.
From the early 30s to
the late 60s, campus
politics were con
trolled by two political
parties: the University
Party and the Student
The party system broke down in the
early 1970s because the University grew
larger and students were divided over
the Vietnam War, said Tom Carpenter,
chairman of the newly-formed Univer
Carpenter, a junior from Wilson, said
the University party was different from
the the Students Effectively Establish
ing a Democratic Society party because
the University Party would only be
addressing campus issues. Earlier
parties were concerned with national
political issues, which helped cause their
downfall, he said.
"We have people working for both
Hunt and Helms. They disagree, but
they all want to improve student life,
and that's what we're all about," he said.
Carpenter got the idea to start the
party after reading about political
history at the University. "I saw the
beneficial effects of the party system
that students don't have now."
One effect is that the party would give
continuity to Student Government
because it could carry out long-term
goals, Carpenter said. "No matter how
good a student body president is, hell
only be in one year."
He said the party would also get
students more involved in student
politics by having representatives on
each dormitory floor. He also said the
party would elect delegates to a con
vention to decide its platform next
The party will not endorse any
candidates this year because of fears
disunity could weaken it, but in future
years it will have its own candidates,
