Ticket change may mot toe
By BARBARA LINN
The proposed change in the word
ing on the back of Ticketron tickets
will not affect the constitutionality of
searches at Smith Center events, legal
experts said Thursday.
However, legal opinions about
whether the change should be made
The change was suggested by Steve
Camp, director of the Smith Center,
in response to concern about the
constitutionality of a disclaimer on
the back of the tickets.
The disclaimer states that ticket
holders are admitted on the condition
that they consent to a "reasonable
search for alchohol, drugs or wea
pons." The proposal would change
that phrase to "a reasonable, legal

For 30 minutes Thursday night, the
North Carolina basketball machine
was rolling, and all the Stetson
Hatters could do was watch it run.
But for the final 10 minutes, the
No. 1 -ranked Tar Heels blew a tire
as Stetson made an 18-1 run to cut
a 29-point UNC lead to 12. In the
end, though, Tar Heel talent over
came Hatter hustle and North Caro
lina prevailed 86-74, before 18,732 at
the Smith Center.
Coach Dean Smith, though happy
with the win over what he called "a
capable Stetson team," said the Tar
Heels are overrated and have a long
way to go.
"I think this game is indicative of
the way we're playing," Smith said.
"We built the lead to 29 . . . and we
should be able to do- better (at
protecting the lead)."
One big reason the Tar Heels had
a routine blowout turned into a
learning experience was Stetson's
Terry Johnson, who paced the Hat
ters' second-half bravado with four
treys and 12 of his 14 points. Three
of Johnson's bombs came in the
three-minute Stetson rally which cut
an 80-51 UNC lead to 81-69 with 3:02
Aiding Johnson was star forward
Randy Anderson, who contributed
15 points to the Hatter cause.
But as well as Johnson and And
erson played, the game belonged to
North Carolina's Scott Williams.
Williams scored 16 points, wiped the
boards clean seven times and blocked
four shots. The most amazing of the
6-foot-10 center's blocks came at the
end of a one-on-three situation in the
first half. Williams rebounded, lost
the ball, then blocked the ensuing
Stetson shot and retrieved the loose
After the game, Williams said that
he was mentally into the game and
"I felt my shot was really on
tonight," the sophomore Williams
said. "I felt I was really hot out there.
1 felt 1 couldn't miss." Actually, he
missed four times Thursday, but
made his other eight attempts.
But while Williams shined, UNC's
slumbering giant continued to strug
gle. J.R. Reid had another tough
game, going only three-for-seven
from the field and scoring 12 points.
"I was trying to do too much too
early in the season," Reid said,
searching for an explanation for his
uncharacteristic play. "I just need to
keep taking the shots that I usually
take. The more games we play, the
better 1 will play and the team will

concern," he said.

pressure caused by too much presea
past," he said. "As long as we have
dorm rooms with something attrac

a difference," he said. "An unreason

A piece of paper has been taped
to the door of two black students who
live in Joyner Residence Hall. The
paper covers the 4-inch high "KKK"
that was carved above the keyhole
of their door sometime Wednesday
night or Thursday morning.
One of the students, a senior who
has lived in Joyner since she was a
freshman, said she noticed the letters
at about 10:45 a.m. Thursday
"I was coming back from my 9:30
class," the senior, who asked not to
be identified, said Thursday evening.
"I turned the key and then I saw it."
She said she thought the incident
had resulted from conflict with
hallmates about making noise, rather
than from a specific racial problem.

Ahlschwede said a few options are

"The backs could be changed on

"We can put whatever we want on
the back of Smith Center tickets,"

on sale all over the place." .

Under the proposed policy, the
severity of the punishment would
depend on the type of drug being
abused. Under the North Carolina
Controlled Substances Act, drugs are
classified in schedules according to
their potential danger of abuse.
Possession of a Schedule I or II
drug such as heroin or cocaine would
result in suspension from enrollment
or employment for at least one
semester. A student or faculty
member caught selling these types of
drugs would be expelled or

or codeine, would result in probation.
