North Carolina's season ended not
with a bang but a whimper for the
fifth straight season Saturday after
noon, as Syracuse upset UNC 79
75 in the Meadowlands.
The victory gave the Orangemen
the NCAA East Regional title and
a berth in the Final Four against
Providence, their Big East foe who
surprised Georgetown to win the
Southeast Regional. The Tar Heels,
No. I seed in the East Region and
No. 2 team in the nation according
to the final regular-season polls,
faded into their normal role of
watching the seasons final three
ames on television.
Why UNC lost 7
"This is a great North Carolina
team, one of the best we've ever had,"
said disappointed UNC coach Dean
Smith, whose team finished its fifth
straight year of not winning an ACC

the first time ever after nine NCAA

said Boeheim. who was carried off

"We made the plays we had to
The Tar Heels didn't. Twice they
had chances in the final 70 seconds
to pull even with the Orangemen,
who had led the entire game. But
Kenny Smiths three-pointer from
the right corner rimmed out with the
score 76-73. After Derrick Coleman
missed the front end of a one-and-one,
UNC had another shot to tie
the game with a three-pointer with
26 seconds left.
But after several passes around the
three-point perimeter, Ranino
Smith drove into the lane and
launched an off-balance, shot that
bounded off the front rim. uWe
would rather have had Ranino
penetrate and then pitch it back out

Much of Syracuse's success in this

Seniors exceed goal;
UNC to set $217 .000
By HELEN JONES
The $217,000 made in a Class of
1987 phonathon fund-raiser in Feb
ruary will be used to install infor
mation booths across campus, create
an endowment fund for student
groups and establish a teaching
award for young faculty.
The class exceeded its fund raising
goal by $ 1 7,000, and more than 1 ,000
seniors pledged $200 apiece to be
paid over the next five years.
Scott Jones, senior class gift
chairman, said the class will try to
improve different aspects of the
University campus with the money
they have raised.
The computer information sta
tions, which were allotted $70,000,
are an ambitious plan, still very
much in the planning stage, he said.
The class hopes to have two or three

doubts its effectiveness.
"The scientific community and the
Nuclear Regulatory Commission
(NRC) have said that a 10-mile
evacuation zone is not adequate for
all accidents," Fleagle said.
The state evacuation plan focuses
on a 10-mile zone around Shearon
Harris and does not take into
account areas outside the zone
including the University's campus.

University does not have an evacua
tion plan is because Chapel Hill is
considered as a receiving site for
people fleeing from accident areas.
"People in risk areas such as
Research Triangle Park would come
to Chapel Hill if an attack or
accident should happen."
Fleagle agrees with the notion of
Chapel Hill as a receiving site, but
said he thinks people may be misled
into thinking they are safe if they
are out of the 10-mile zone.

FORT MILL, S.C. - The
Rev. Richard Dortch, in his first
Sunday sermon since succeeding
evangelist Jim Bakker in the PTL
pulpit, asked the often
applauding and sometimes
weeping congregation to give
money to "let the world know this
ministry is going to stay strong."
"We will not be defeated,"
Dortch said during the two-hour
service at Heritage USA, now
controlled by the Rev. Jerry
Falwell, founder of the Moral
"We will move forward, and we
will see our God walk us through
the storm," he told the congre

shows that 10 miles may be inade

Fleagle said he was not impressed

UNC's Board of Trustees should
be more diverse and include more
members. Chairman of the Faculty
George Kennedy said at a Faculty
Council meeting Friday.
"Although all of the trustees'
members are committed to this
University, they aren't knowledged
with it as much as they should be,"
Kennedy said. "To become more
knowledged with this University,
they need not only to enlarge but
also to diversify."
. The University administration
apparently doesn't have much con
fidence in the 13-member board,
Kennedy said, since the Board of
Governors, the body responsible for
administrating the 16-campus UNC
System, has had to make most of
the recent decisions concerning
admissions requirements, athletics,
campus-industry relations and drugs
"Almost any action taken by the
trustees is reviewed at a higher level,"
Kennedy said. "There is a consid
erable amount of frustration with
and lack of confidence in the trustees
board on the part of the faculty,
students and alumni."
Kennedy also said he hoped
William Darity, the only black
trustee, would not resign from the
board. Darity threatened to resign
in February after differences arose
with the board concerning the
University's investments in compan
ies doing business in South Africa.
"I hope Dr. Darity will not resign
from the board," Kennedy said. "He
is not only the token black, but also
the token academic on the board
the only person there with some
understanding of research."
In other action Friday, the council
approved reports from the commit

Richard Zaffron, a professor in
the UNC philosophy department
and one of the faculty members
contacted by Fleagle, said he sup
ports the petition.
"Given the distance radioactivity
can travel, we are in need of an
evacuation plan," Zaffron said. "I

that UNC had a net increase of only
35 female faculty members in tenure
track positions over the past 10
years. But more than half of the
undergraduate and graduate popu
lation is female, she said.
"This University needs to renew
and continue to commit itself to the
recruitment of women faculty
members," Brown said. "It needs to
find ways to bring women faculty
members to this University."
Tony Whitehead, chairman of the
committee on the status of minorities
and the disadvantaged, presented a
three-year plan to study the needs
of minorities at UNC. The plan
includes group interviews with
minority students, faculty members
and handicapped students.
"We plan on touching base with
as many minority students and
faculty as possible to find out their
needs," Whitehead said.
The council also approved reports
by the committees on black faculty
and research at UNC.
According to the report of the
committee on black faculty, the
number of black faculty members
decreased by 2 between 1983 and
1986, and the faculty's goal of
increasing black faculty is not being

The Charlotte Observer
reported that PTL officials have
been seeking a loan to refinance
long-term debts and to raise cash.
Falwell said the loan would be
for more than $50 million: PTL
documents say it would be backed
with property at Heritage USA
used as collateral.
The complex includes a 500
room hotel, shopping mall,
cafeteria, convention center,
water-amusement park, offices, a
school, a television studio and
several real-estate developments.
