ATLANTA It had all the

it took a miracle in the closing
seconds for Georgia Tech to find the
final page.
With the Tar Heels leading by one
at 72-71 and 1 1 seconds on the clock,
Georgia Tech coach Bobby Cremins
devised a play to take the ball inside.
The target was Tom Hammonds, the

McLean said she thinks so 'few

because the BSM lacks a strong core.
The BSM has had a problem with

interest in the group, she said. "Why
would you want to be a part of an

whom McLean would succeed, said

unopposed. In the past three years,

But UNC forward J.R. Reid, who
led the Tar Heels with 20 points and
eight rebounds, slapped the entry pass
off Hammonds' leg and out of
bounds. After UNC guard Steve
Bucknall nailed both ends of a one-and-one
with seven seconds left, it
looked as if Hammonds' senior day
would end with a failing grade.
After two free throws drew Tech
within one, however, the miracle
came in the form of Yellow Jacket

chaoses So 1960s journalism
Staff Writer
The 1960s were a time of rebellion
against limits, Charlie Peters, founder
of The Washington Monthly and a
leader in the changing journalistic
trends of the 1960s, said in Gerrard
Hall Wednesday afternoon.
Peters, appearing as part of the
1989 Fine Arts Festival, said the civil
rights movement, the women's move
ment and the reaction toward the
Vietnam War were the primary
reasons for rebellion. "These rebel
lions were based on the romantic
premises that segregation could be
ended, the war could be ended and
women could be treated equally.
"Not all of this romanticism was
unfounded," he said. "Today you see
black and white Alabama football
players hugging each other, and you
never would have seen that in the
early 1960s."
Peters said there was a similar
revolt in journalism. "In the old

are very qualified. "The BSM shares
the belief that we'd like to see
someone run who is involved."
Because McLean and Blanks are
so qualified, they would be difficult
to challenge, Perry said.
McLean said she was looking
forward to the election but is still
cautious. "I'm very excited about
being president of the BSM, but I
don't want to anticipate too much.
There is always the possibility of a
write-in candidate, and you can never
really tell until the last minute."

couldn't have come at a worse time
for the Tar Heels.
Scott, who finished with a game
high 28 points, stole Reid's inbounds
pass from Scott Williams with four
seconds to play, turned and swished
a 21 -foot trey to give the Yellow
Jackets a 76-74 lead with just two
ticks remaining on the clock.

Teddy White's book "The Making
of The President: 1960," Truman
Capote's "In Cold Blood," various
works of Tom Wolfe and the creation
of The Washington Monthly helped
to inaugurate a new style of journal

"Hiroshima" and William Ross
article "Picture," about director John
Huston and the making of the film
version of Stephen Crane's "The Red
Badge of Courage," were important
antecedents to the writing styles of
the '60s, he said.

Elmar Bolowich, who has been an

The use of undeveloped University

20th anniversary, Peters' ambition
was to publish all the facts, not just
those which supported his point of
view, he said. The Washington
Monthly viewed the problems of the
1960s, including the Vietnam War
and the rise of feminism, from
viewpoints different from its contem
poraries, he said.
"The machoism of American men
was a factor," he said. "I don't think
it (the war) would have happened
without the counterculture of the
early 1960s." Peters said such machis
mo was a defensive reaction of many
government officials to the counter
culture, which put no value in it.
"The other factor in the continua
tion of the war that became evident
was the failure of the government to
take risks," he said. "I knew a large
number of people in the state depart

The BSM should encourage fresh
men and sophomores to be more
involved in the organization, McLean
said. She would like to see underclass
men working with all aspects of the
BSM so they know what is going on
in the organization, she said.
"They will invest in the future of
the BSM," she said. "If you get a firm
foundation, you can build on that."
