Howard plays Heels tough,
but UNC still prevails, 77-63
By FRANK KENNEDY
The Mideastern Athletic Conference
rarely gets much attention from the
college basketball media circus.
A league of predominantly black
schools centered primarily in the
Carolinas and Virginia, the MEAC
plays to a familiar story every year: its
conference champion gets an automatic
bid to the NCAA tournament, plays 40
minutes and goes home for the year.
Howard University is the prima
donna of that league, so to speak. And
its basketball team, the Bison, sent a
Shockwave through Carmichael Audit
orium for 30 minutes last night, playing
sluggish North Carolina a game it won't
soon forget before finally succumbing
to the 16th-ranked Tar Heels, 77-63.
Unable to penetrate a tough 3-2
Howard" zone for most of the first half,
but quite able to miss defensive calls
and rebounds despite a much larger
frontline, UNC dragged its feet for 20
minutes behind a quicker Howard team
and trailed 37-35 at the half.
It wasn't until with 10 minutes
remaining and the Tar Heels leading 54
51 that the UNC defense rattled the
Bison's backcourt with a trapping
defense, forcing turnovers on four
consecutive Howard possessions, while
battling more fiercely on the boards to
rip off 12 unanswered points and secure
a third straight victory against no losses.
Howard fell to 0-2.
UNC coach Dean Smith was partic
ularly disgusted with his team's first-half
play, in which the Tar Heels trailed by
as many as seven points on several
occasions. "I thought Howard was
ready and made us look very bad,"
Smith said. "We missed a lot of easy
shots and didn't take good care of the

young team to come home and want
to show what they can do. We didn't

Profs say Chilean military
supports Pinochet's gov't
By JIM TOWNSEND
Eleven years after the military coup
that brought him to power in Chile,
Gen. Augusto Pinochet is tightening his
grip in response to protests that have
rocked that country for more than a
Last month, Pinochet imposed a state
of seige, shut down all opposition
newspapers and banned political activ
ity. More recently, the military con
ducted massive "sweeps" aimed at
rooting out dissention in two Santiago
ghettos, including a roundup of 5,000
men and boys in a sports stadium.
Despite signs, which indicate civilian
support for Pinochet has all but
evaporated, "there is very little chance
of a revolution as long as the military
continues to support Pinochet," said
Arturo Valenzuela, a professor of
political science at Duke University.
Valenzuela, who returned last wee
kend from a visit to Chile after meeting
with researchers and citizens there, said
the military's willingness to stand
behind Pinochet was the result of two
factors: the military's tendency to obey
its own law, and a strong fear of
reprisals from any new government for
its harsh tactics in dealing with political
"Military leaders are very legalistic by
nature, and now it appears that they're
in somewhat of a bind," he said. "In
1973 when the military seized power
from a democratically elected Salvadore
Allende, they believed it was their
constitutional right to do so. In 1980
during an economic boom, Chile
approverd a new constitution which
said Pinochet would rule until 1989. It
would be difficult for the military to
violate its own constitution and support

Wolf and 6-5 Buzz Peterson. For the
third straight game, UNC has played
teams with a frontcourt no taller than
Smith called a timeout with only 5:47
gone and the Tar Heels down by seven.
"I told them I couldn't believe what I
was seeing out there," Smith said. "We
were hurrying around, doing everything
wrong. I was disappointed in every part
of our play in the first half."
Howard coach A.B. Williamson was
proud of his team's performance,
especially in light of the fact that the
Bison were, on paper, overmatched.
"Our guys played a legitimate, big-time
game," Williamson said. "It's the best
game we've had since I've been here."
Daugherty said the problems the Tar
Heels experienced were mental, stem
ming mainly from overconfidence.
"This team was too complacent after
yesterday's win," said Daugherty, who
pulled down 13 rebounds, including
eight in the second half rally. "We took
Howard kind of lightly." UNC defeated
Boston University Sunday, 79-62.
Peterson said he could tell the Tar
Heels were lackadaisical about the
game. "You can sense those things in
warmups," Peterson said. "We were real
sluggish, but I thought we would come
back quicker than we did."
Peterson's eight points in the second
half complemented strong defensive
play as the Tar Heels mixed up a man-to-man
defense with a 2-1-2 zone.
Coach Smith called the second-half
turnabout "decent" basketball, but was
careful to limit his praise of a team that
many expected to win in a romp. "We
played decently in the second half and
Kenny Smith played sensationally,"
Smith said. "But the party's over for
us. We've had three games we thought
we should have won. Now it's Oral
Roberts and Wake Forest."
The game was undecided until the
with," Dunn said. "It looked like they
had a windstorm in there. We just
moved the desk back."
When they finished the job, he said,
all they took were the brushes, rollers
and paint they brought with them.
"He (Holley) says he wasn't sure who
the painters were. I'm quite sure he
knows who the painters are," Dunn
said. "I just feel he owes us an apology."
Melinda Snow, executive secretary
for Student Government,, said she saw
the office before the painters arrived and
agreed it was messy. "It was a workable
wreck," she said, "but it was still a
CGC members hadn't stored mate
rials consistently during the summer,
and fear what would happen if they lost
control of the government."
The first serious challenge to
Pinochet's rule came in the summer of
1983. Economic depression, which has
gripped the country, since late 1981,
brought 20 percent unemployment and
sparked a series of uprisings which were
dealt with severely by the Pinochet
government. As a result, Pinochet's
approval rating in a secret poll reported
by the New York Times dropped from
highs around 70 percent in 1980 to 18
percent in 1983.
Unemployment is now 25 percent and
inflation is 30 percent, Valenzuela said.
"The state of siege is an indication of
the failure of the government. Why
would a regime that has been in power
for 11 years all of a sudden impose a
state of seige unless it had failed?" he
The latest governmental crackdown
is similar to the repression that accom
panied the 1973 coup, when thousands
were killed or sent to concentration
camps, said Frederico Gil, UNC pro
fessor emeritus of political science.
"It's the same pattern of things,
rounding up the men in the cities and
taking them out to a stadium," he said.
"The military likes to cut off dissent
before it goes too far."
Valenzuela said the military's efforts
to clamp down on dissent had been
successful. "They masterfully controlled
the movement. There were tanks all
around the city intimidating people and
making sure nothing really got started.
People are scared, uninformed, and
bored with it."
Officials of the Roman Catholic
Church have denounced the govern

James A. Heavner, president of the
Village Companies, is advocating a
move to change or restrict the laws
governing sales in the UNC Student
In a column published in the Oct.
7 Village Advocate, Heavner requested
UNC take a "hard look at the Student
Stores." The column was based on a
lawsuit filed by Pascal and Associates
which charged unfair business practices
by the University because of low prices
on Apple and IBM computers and
computer software in the Student
The computer controversy is a
renewal of a longtime issue involving
what should and should not be sold in
the Student Stores, Heavner said. He
outlined the growth of the Student
Stores, which has been in operation for
over 50 years, from a small textbook
and school supplies outlet to Orange
County's largest retail store, with
annual income of more than $10
Heavner said the Umstead Act,
written by late State Representative
John Umstead, Jr. of Chapel Hill and
passed in 1939, specifies that only
students, faculty, staff and members of
their immediate families and "persons
who are on campus other than for the
purpose of purchasing merchandise
from campus stores," may actually buy
merchandise from the Student Stores.
In 1974, the act was amended to
exempt from sales restrictions "educa
tional materials, gift items and miscel
laneous personal-use items," and stip
ulated the campus stores should not be
operated for the purpose of competing
with stores in the communities sur
rounding the University.
Heavner said although the operators
of the Student Stores were making
profits for the University's scholarship
endowment, the administration had
been "insensitive to the rights and role
of the retail entities in this community

"I believe the University administra
tion consists of honorable people who
deal in good faith, but the policy making
for the Student Stores may need to be
reexamined," Heavner said.
Student Body President Paul Parker
is concerned with the stance Heavner
is taking toward the Student Stores.
Parker said because 10,096 UNC
students were on some type of financial
aid, if restrictions were put on what the
Student Stores could sell and to whom
it could sell, the amount of money
flowing from the Student Stores into
the scholarship endowment might be
seriously cut back.

approaching a record deficit of $7.4
billion the American Textile and
Manufacturers Institute reported.
According to U.S. Census data, 518
textile plants closed and 155,000 jobs
were lost between 1977 and 1982.
North Carolina's jobless rate rose
from 6.3 percent in September of this
year to 6.8 percent in October, the
state's Employment Security Commis
sion reported. The loss of 4,100 textile

financial aid is the difference between
a high school diploma and a college
diploma. It would be a major problem
if restrictions were put on the Student
Stores," Parker said. Of about $11
million Student Stores takes in yearly,
$500,000 goes to financial aid programs
and need-based scholarships.
Parker said the reason for Heavner's
involvement in the issue is not clear,
but the fact that Heavner's company
owns Village Advocate, WCHL radio
station and several other media-based
businesses in Chapel Hill and Durham
makes Village Company one of the
largest advertisers in the area. Parker
said due to this lofty but shaky position,
Heavner was trying to be a "knight in
shining armor for the businesses of
In a letter of response to Heavner,
Parker wrote, "It alarms me, then, when
the University is accused of being
'insensitive' to the greater community
of Chapel Hill.. ..it should be noticed
that most of us (students and faculty)
are residents of Chapel Hill and have
an interest in the town which extends
beyond the borders of the campus."
Parker went on to write," Again, you
may have a valid claim that our stores
mean competition for area businesses;
I'm not sure that's bad. In any case,
just as the University is a part of Chapel
Hill and has certain responsibilities to
Chapel Hill, the reverse is also true. By
understanding and recognizing the
needs of the whole community, the
citizens and businesses of Chapel Hill
provide a needed service to youths of
this state and nation."
James Cansler, vice chancellor for
student affairs, is also concerned with
the Heavner's position. Cansler said in
the past several businesses had com
plained to the University about various
things, including the "Free Flick" film
program sponsored by the Union and
the sale of frozen yogurt in campus
stores, but problems had always been
worked out. He said the first respon
sibility of the Student Stores had always
been to serve students and faculty of
the University and would remain that
Student Stores manager Tom Shetley
said he believed Heavner got involved
in the issue due to the computer
controversy, but he thought the Student
Stores acted fairly and responsibly in
dealings with students as well as
businesses in the community. "We're
looked at often by SCAU (Student
Consumer Action Union) and we rarely
get complaints. The good, sharp mer
chants have no problem competing with
us," Shetley said.
"The relationship between the bus
iness community and the University is
important and delicate. The overriding
question, however, is whether the
University should, by principle, operate
the largest retail store in Chapel Hill,
Carrboro and Orange County,"
of the rise in the unemployment rate.
Some textile plants have decided to
cut hours and temporarily shutdown
rather than fire or lay off workers.
While some plants struggle to sustain
their employment level, other plants
struggle just to keep running.
"We are going to stand two weeks
and work two weeks," said Clara
Parker, an employee at Ty-Caro's
Mutual Plant in Gastonia. "We have
to stand; (we) simply don't have
orders. Imports are so much cheaper."
There have been 35 textile related
closings during the first 10 months of
this year, according to the North
Carolina Department of Commerce.
The pace is quickening. In October
alone, four North Carolina textile and
apparel plants eliminated 839 jobs.
A spinner at Carolina Mill's Plant
No. 8 in Maiden, Sandy Wise, said
she blamed the Reagan administration
and Congress for doing little to
restrain imports. "It makes you mad,"
she said. "We put these people into
office to help our jobs'. It doesn't seem
like they're doing anything."
Some plants are not surviving the
influx of imports, as a rash of plant
closings suggests. In Balfour, a
nonwoven-materials plant laid off 100
workers this summer, and a Yadkin
ville polyester yarn company reduced
employment by 100. In Mount Plea
sant, the Hansen Trust Ltd. plans to
close its Cabarrus County sportswear
plant, thereby, laying off 200
