By DAVE GLENN
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. It
had been seven years since their last
meeting, a dramatic North Carolina
victory on a not-so-incredible shot by a
man named Michael Jordan. That one
gave the Tar Heels the national cham
pionship. A lot has changed since then, but one
song remains the same. John
Thompson's Georgetown squad is still
a hungry, aggressive bunch that can
wreak havoc on even the most disci
They do it with defense, and Thurs
day night the Tar Heels were their prey.
The third-ranked Hoy as, led by twin
towers Alonzo Mourning and Dikembe
Mutombo, rejected the 1 7th-ranked Tar
Heels, 93-8 1 , in the battle between the
top seed in the Big East-Atlantic Coast
Conference basketball challenge series.
Earlier in the evening, Virginia de
feated Villanova by a 73-65 tally, forc
ing the conferences to split the eight
game series; Clemson, Georgia Tech,
and N.C State joined Virginia as win
ners for the ACC.
UNC head coach Dean Smith
watched his squad drop to 4-3 on the
year the Tar Heels' slowest start
since the 1982-83 season, when they
opened a 28-8 year with a 3-3 record.
Smith, though disappointed with the
loss, said he didn't get caught up in the
hype surrounding his meeting with
Thompson, an old friend.
"We were simply trying to get ready
to play Georgetown in a regular season
game," Smith said, "and we didn't do it

The Delta Sigma Phi fraternity will

"Getting past the BOT was the major
step. Everything else should just fall
into line. They (the BOT) didn't even
question the proposal. After the pro

any. Brian (Tuttle, Delta Sigma Phi

At UNC-Greensboro, the Animal
Rights League, a protest group there, is
also involved in a protest against ani
mal research practices, according to
League president Beth Gentry. For a
year and a half, the League has held a
formal protest every two weeks against
the practices of Walter Salinger, an
played concern for their fellow man.
"I wish that every student would
come back from Christmas and bring a
footlocker and keep their wallet locked
in it," said Sgt. Ned Comar of Univer
"I wish they (students) would call
the police every time they see around
their dorm someone who they feel
doesn't belong there. I wish the women
would not walk alone at night but (in
stead) use the escort service. And I
wish everyone a Merry Christmas."
Canadian Student Body President
Brien Lewis showed concern for the
ability of North Carolinians to adapt to
cold weather. He noted that North
Carolina schools closed when the first
snowflake was sighted.
"I would like for North Carolina to
learn how to deal with snow and enjoy
it. In Canada, I've seen people cross
country skiing just to get to work."
Lewis also displayed characteristic
concern for students' economic inter
ests. "My No. 1 wish would be all finan
cial burdens removed from every stu
dent at UNC ... everyone on a full

only the best for students.
Frederic Schroeder, dean of students,
wished students a "safe, prosperous"

Donald Boulton, vice chancellor and
dean of student affairs, also wanted
students to do well but set somewhat
lower standards for the finals. "I wish
for students to pass all of their exams."
Ben Tuchi, vice chancellor of busi
ness and finance, combined academic
and athletic wishes and produced, "I'd

with a GPA of 3.5."
On a realistic note, other people
wanted better campus relations.
"For the campus, I want racial unity,"
said Russell Dula, Black Greek Coun
Another wish of Lewis' was "better
understanding and cooperation through
out the University community."
Personal wishes inevitably worked
their way into many of the interviews.
Boulton, obviously a serious golfer,
said, "I want a driver that will enable
me to drive 300 yards off the tee." He
added a putter to the list, requesting
equally amazing things of it.

Cooper said that construction would

hoped the fraternity would be able to
move in by the 1991 academic year.

have "no problem with Salinger as a
person," the League wants him to "go
on to another phase of research."
The Animal Rights League further
argues that Salinger is teaching stu
dents who are pursuing their masters'
degrees in art, not in science, to experi
ment on animals. No one without for
mal education in science should oper

Proposals for athletics
receive mixed reviews
By KENNY MONTEITH
Some UNC coaches and athletes
reacted with concern to the proposals in
the Faculty Council Committee report
The report asked for severe changes
in UNC athletics, including freshman
ineligibility, grants-in-aid based on the
sport's graduation rate and shorter ath
"I think the faculty should be proud
of the athletic department," said Sylvia
Hatchell, women's basketball coach.
"We've had such a good record here
with 26 different sports."
Ron Miller, UNC fencing coach, said
he believed some athletic reforms were
necessary and a good idea.
"The extent of the reforms, I believe,
are a result of those who abuse the
rules, but we (UNC) don't abuse the

The report also said the University
should admit only 75 out-of-state ath

Hatchell said it was hard enough for
an out-of-state student-athlete to be
accepted to UNC.
"It's so hard to get into this school as
an out-of-state student anyway, and

Controversy at Duke University has
centered around businesses in Durham

ivory products. Most of these are jew
