Brad Daugherty is a 6-1 1 student at
the University of North Carolina.
But to call Daugherty a 'student'
sounds almost strange to anyone who
knows that, during the winter months,
he is the starting center for the
nationally recognized, often televised
UNC basketball team.
Daugherty is a big-time athlete at a
big-time sports school, and that changes
many people's perceptions of him and
places him apart from the student body.

"It would be a lie to say I don't feel
separated from the student body,"
Daugherty said this week. "Sometimes
people look at you as a ballplayer and
place you apart not just here at UNC,
but in all of the sports world."

"With the trappings of big-time
athletics, it's easy not to pursue getting
involved with non-athletes," Silva said.
"It's much more difficult for a popular
student-athlete to live like a regular
student, but if he really desires it, he
can accomplish it."

Karen Hayes, Jim Martin's press
secretary, calls it evidence of "a steadily
growing gain in popularity." Dan
Hoover, Attorney General Rufus
Edmisten's press secretary, dismisses it
as a biased and invalid "piece of crap."
"It" is the recent Charlotte Observer
poll which showed Martin leading by
six points in the race for governor, a
poll which has provoked a flurry of
activity in both camps and raised the
question "How did Martin come from
11 points down to six points ahead in
just over three weeks?"
When the race began, the smart
money was certainly on Edmisten, the
state's popular and well-known top cop.
To be sure, his campaign coffers had

television and on the covers of national
sports magazines can have its draw
backs when a student-athlete is trying
to lead a normal student's life.
Scott Stankavage, a former UNC
quarterback and now with the NFL's
Denver Broncos, said he realized that
the notoriety of being a major college
football quarterback would change his
"That's part of the responsibility of
being in athletics," Stankavage said.
"Coach Walker (UNC quarterback
coach) told me, 'you're living in a
fishbowl. Everyone is going to grade
you and look at you.' They form an
opinion of you as a person because of
what you do on the playing field."
Reuben Davis, a tackle on this year's
football team, said that association with
non-athletic students was rare for him.
"Most people, if they even talk to you,
might say 'Nice game Saturday,' but not
many associate with you as anything
other than an athlete," Davis said.
Silva said that many athletes on the
big-time level suffer from social and
emotional isolation, because, as Davis
said, they are seen as nothing but

the isolation. "The student body some-

and his Republican opponent would be

against a man practically unknown
outside of the Charlotte area. Hayes
admits that when the race began Martin
had a name recognition rating of less
than 50 percent. Early polls showed
Martin trailing by 26 points.
And yet Martin has closed that gap
to the point that Hoover says only that
"we're a little bit ahead." Part of his
gain can be attributed to the fact that,
as Hoover says, "He had nowhere to
go but up." But Martin's success is also
a testimonial to clever TV advertising
and the virtues of running a positive
campaign. Only recently have ads
appeared criticizing Edmisten. Martin's
name recognition has risen in the last
month to about 92 percent, and

said he had experienced things similar
to what Silva described.
"That separation bothers me," he
said. "People look at my actions as

basketball players were intimidating to

said. "We're not average Joes. Our

Stankavage said he had been able to
associate with non-athletes, but offered
reasons as to why some athletes have
that "bubble" around them.
"I think a 17-year-old gets out of high
school and sees people like James
Worthy, Kelvin Bryant, Lawrence
This is a campaign in which the two
candidates are diametrically oposed on
many issues, and yet it has been a
campaign noticeably lacking in both
negative advertising and issue-oriented
ads. Martin, by running ads emphas
izing his ability and his desire to return
money to the taxpayers, has interest
ingly shied away from portraying
himself as the strong conservative he
is while Edmisten, despite running ads
promoting his stands on care for the
elderly and the poor, has refrained from
painting himself as the strong liberal he
is. In an election year where ideological
labels have become prominent, the
gubernatorial race is an anomaly, a race
where name recognition and personal
ability has become more important than
philosophies of government.

Stankavage said that, as well as those
students who are in awe of these big
time athletes, many students separate
themselves from athletes because of the
"dumb jock" sterotype. "I took pride
in my academic record," he said, "but
at times, students and teachers stereo
typed me as an athlete."
Stankavage said if he got a good
grade on a test, many students would
think he was handed the good mark
because he was an athlete.
Sue Walsh, an All-American
swimmer who made a run at the
Olympics last summer, said that stereo
types had gone too far sometimes. "I
have had teachers come out and make
open comments about dumb football
players," Walsh said. "For a teacher to
come say something like that I
couldn't believe it."
Walsh also offered another reason for
athletes being in a bubble time.
"There are more demands on an
athlete's time," she said.
Fullback Eddie Colson agreed. "IVe

students don't know what we go

Is Cobey free
of radical right?
By WAYNE THOMPSON
State and National Editor
When White House aides went
looking for a place where President
Reagan could campaign for a likely
Republican winner in a Democratic
district a week before the 1982 elections,
they picked Raleigh and the apparent
4th District winner, former UNC
athletic director Bill Cobey. After all,
Democratic incumbent Ike Andrews
had committed political suicide on Oct.
2 when he was arrested on the Raleigh
beltline for drunken driving and other
related charges owing to a Slurpee cup
spiked with rum. And Cobey had raised
more than $600,000 and had just
finished a tough television ad campaign
attacking Andrews' voting record.
But as the returns flashed upon the

Earlier, Barfield read a newspaper

from the death chamber. Before talking
to her attorney, Barfield had commun

This year the station got the "bare-bones
minimum" of about $14,800, Burton
For comparison, Burton said WKNC
at N.C. State got $142,000 but, unlike
WXYC, pays its staff. And Duke's
WXDU received $75,000, which he said
ran out after seven months.
John Wilson (Dist. 18) unsuccessfully
tried to amend the bill to 4 percent of
student fees ($19,000), which he said was
closer to WXYC's current budget. He
pointed out that the station could
always come back for more money if
necessary, thatstudent activities fees
might be raised and that it wouldn't be
fair to increase its budget when other
organizations need money.
WXYC could operate on 4 percent,
Burton said, but added he felt he'd been
penalized for being a good manager
because CGC regularly cut his budget
after seeing how much money the
station had raised or saved.
Burton said he needed $20,000 and
predicted the full CGC would cut it to
4 percent anyway.

The system, Centrex, is planned to

currently being discussed.
This system is a step in the right

the University was definitely buying a

Executive Branch was pushing for
dormitories to be included in the system.
Associate Vice Chancellor of Busi

had received permission to buy some
equipment from AT&T, but the equip
ment did not include dormitory phones
or phones for NCMH.
Robert Peake, director of utilities,

equipment were almost complete.
Peake said the equipment, which cost
$1 million, included only telephone
terminals in offices, and not any
underground wiring or other equip

"In the three years IVe been here,"
Lloyd said, "there has not been a single
financial hitch at WXYC. It's a waste
of time for Student Government to go
through it every year."
In other action yesterday, the com
mittee defeated a bill that would give
CGC candidates the option of running
with a vice councilor to substitute
during absences and serve as aides.
The bill's provisions intended to
represent students more fully, allow
greater participation of graduate stu
dents who might not be able to attend
meetings year-round and improve the
continuity of the CGC.
Representatives argued the bill would
provide less continuity by making it
more convenient for members to quit
and would increase the size of the
council too much.

Parker said the fact that the telephone
issue was currently being worked on by
the University would greatly speed up
implementing the system.
Student Government has organized
a task force under the direction of
Randy Sprinkle, a senior from
Winston-Salem. Members of the task
force include Telecommunications
Manager Steve Harward, Director of
Housing Wayne Kuncl and Antle. In
addition to this task force, Kuncl has
set up a telecommunications committee
to deal with telephones and the instal
lation of cable on campus.
Parker said a $2 billion budget was
set by the University in 1983 for the
system, but additional funds might be
needed if dormitories are included in
"The system will pay for itself, lower
telephone costs on campus and save
students money," Parker said. The
installation of the system in dormitories
would lower hookup costs which would
be included in rent, he said. The leasing
time for a dormitory phone on Centrex
would be 12 months, he said.
Parker said the University had done
everything possible to speed up the
process, which was hampered because
of the breakup of AT&T and the
resignation of the original telephone
task force leader for personal reasons.
