When Edward Diggs was admitted
to UNC in 195 1 , he was the first black
student to be admitted to a Southern
university without a court order.
Diggs had been accepted to the
University of Chicago's medical
school, but he wanted to attend UNC
because it was closer to home.
Although Diggs was not the first
black student to be admitted to UNC,
he was the first whose application was
legally uncontested. His admission to
UNC's medical school came in the
midst of a number of conflicts that
led to the eventual desegregation of
UNC. The first suit for admission at

For Virginia coach Terry Holland,
things were going pretty well at
halftime of Saturday's contest against
second-ranked North Carolina. His
Cavaliers trailed only 38-30 to the
homestanding Tar Heels and were
certainly within striking distance.
But after the second half had ended
with UNC rolling to a 87-62 victory
in the Dean Dome, Holland was less
"There was an awful lot going on
in the second half," said Holland of
the Big East-like final period. "That
was not a basketball game."
The young and undersized Cava

Thursday's home battle with Duke at
2-0 in ACC play, 13-1 overall.
Indeed, the game saw technical
fouls called on both benches, and was
marred by three intentional fouls and
a minor confrontation between sev
"Virginia is usually as physical as
any team we play," UNC coach Dean
Regardless of the style of play, the
Tar Heels ended all Cavalier hopes
of winning by opening up the second
half with a 15-4 run.
Junior guard Jeff Lebo led UNC
with 23 points and sophomore J.R.
Reid made 11 of 17 free throws en
route to 19.
The Cavaliers were led by senior
forward Mel Kennedy's 23 points and
junior guard Richard Morgan's 14.
Before the action became more
appropriate for Kenan Stadium,
sophomore forward Scott Williams
opened the game for the Tar Heels
with a trio of short jump shots.
Virginia countered with the outside
shooting of Kennedy and Morgan,
both of whom hit three-pointers
sandwiched around Morgan's foul
line jumper, for an early 8-6 Cavalier

Students, residents march on

Dedicating oneself to fulfilling the
dreams of Martin Luther King and
realizing the problems facing blacks
in the areas of housing and education
were the themes speakers emphasized
Monday during activities honoring
Approximately 200 people
gathered at the Franklin Street Post
Office for the second annual Martin
Luther King Celebration of Unity and
Conscience, sponsored by the Orange
County Rainbow Coalition. After the
short rally, the crowd marched down
Franklin Street to the First Baptist
Church for a memorial service.
At the rally, senior Linda Shealey,
co-chair of Students for the Advance
ment of Race Relations, addressed
educational problems that exist at the
University and in the Chapel Hill
Carrboro public schools.
"Institutionalized racism and self
segregation make it hard for the
minority student to feel a part of the
University community," Shealey said.
This racism and self-segregation
account in part for the high rate of

1933 by a black man seeking admis

Desegregation at UNC moved
slowly at first, with only a limited
number of incoming black students.
Still, the movement to desegregate in
North Carolina was ahead of other
states in the South.
North Carolina was the first South
ern state to provide graduate and
professional programs for blacks,
instituted after the 1938 Supreme
Court decision that required segre
gated education to be equal.
Problems with the "separate, but
equal" ruling appeared when students

Racial problems also exist in
Chapel Hill's public school system,
Shealey said. Black students in first
through eighth grade score signifi
cantly lower than whites on achieve

this deficit, she said.
Yonni Chapman, secretary of the
Orange County Rainbow Coalition
and one of the organizers of the rally,
spoke about the lack of student
housing in Chapel Hill.
The University has expanded in the
past 20 years, but has built very little
student housing, Yonni said. This

UNC as graduate students in areas
not offered or accredited by NCCN.
As late as 1950, NCCN offered
degrees in 22 undergraduate areas, 13
master's degree programs and no
doctoral programs. UNC offered 30
undergraduate majors, 36 master's
degrees and 25 doctoral programs.
In the 1940s, black students could
attend UNC as graduate students
only in fields not offered by NCCN.

program, Diggs was allowed to attend

was finally approved after a BOG

policy over 10 months.
"The campuses of the University

Luites enters race
for editor off DTH
By HELEN JONES
Jean Lutes, a junior journalism
major from Pittsburgh, Pa., has
announced her candidacy for
editor of The Daily Tar Heel.
"I want to work to make the
DTH more informative and more
entertaining for students," Lutes
said in an interview Monday.
The Daily Tar Heel needs to
provide students with more infor
mation about state and national
news, Lutes said.
"I want to make more of -an
effort to gear, state and national

to expand coverage of Chapel Hill
and Carrboro, to raise awareness
of local crime with regular crime
reports and to establish a business

and area social events in Omnibus
as well. Students she had talked
to seemed interested in more

Among the changes she'd like
to make on the editorial page,
Lutes said she wants to bring back
the "week in quotes" column,
which featured notable quotes
from various students and public
"I want to make the editorial
page fun to read, but I want to
make people think, too," she said.
While the paper is producing
more pages than ever, the number
of staff members is not increasing,
Lutes said. "The Daily Tar Heel
is at a turning point," she said.
As editor, Lutes said she would
recruit writers more heavily and
against the University, and on Sept.
15, 1955, Ralph Frasier, Leroy
Frasier and John Brandon enrolled
as UNC's first black undergraduates.
They did not live on campus.
At no time during the desegrega
tion process did the student body
protest the presence of black students.
In 1952, the Law Association planned
its annual dance off campus in order
to accommodate University rules
against racially mixed social func
tions on campus. The association had
one black member.

right now to have in-depth stories

Her experience and commit

from the other candidates, Lutes
said. "Fifty hours a week as
University editor for the past year
has given me a great deal of
experience and insight," she said.
Lutes worked as university
editor from February 1987 until
January 1988, when she resigned
to run for editor in chief. She also
worked as assistant university
editor and assistant managing
editor as a sophomore. In her
freshman year, Lutes was a staff
writer and a layout assistant.
