Yice chancellor post
By Marty Minchin
Assistant University Editor
Chancellor Paul Hardin said Wednes
day he will reinstate the position of vice
chancellor for graduate studies and re
search. "The faculty has urged me to rein
state the position," he said.
Hardin said the position, which he
abolished in 1989 to save money, is
reserved unofficially for Mary Sue

UNC , towns need
By Jennifer Brett
Leaders in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro
community voiced their support this
week for a free-standing black cultural
center on campus.
James Brittian, president of the
Chapel Hill-Carrboro chapter of the
National Association for the Advance
ment of Colored People, said a BCC
would be a symbol of pride and social
and political well-being for black stu
dents. "It would provide a sense of togeth
erness and organization," Brittian said.
Black culture often is considered to
be a subculture by whites, Brittian said.
A BCC would challenge that notion
through education, he said
Brittian has asked the Chapel Hill
Town Council to help fund a downtown
revitalization project that would include
construction of a cultural center.
Brittian requested the funds on be
half of the Midway Development Com
mission, an organization created to de
velop the Midway area, located on the
Chapel Hill-Carrboro border.
Carrboro Board of Alderman mem
ber Hilliard Caldwell said he thought
the Chapel Hill-Carrboro community
needed a multicultural center.
Multicultural centers also are needed
on all campuses, Caldwell said, giving
N.C. State University's multicultural
center as an example of a center that
encourages students to interact.
"A culture center would benefit both
communities," he said. "A culture cen
ter is something that is open to every
one." Brittian said subtle racism plagues
the campus and the community, mak
ing many black students feel insecure.
Harvey Reid, editor of the Village
View, a local magazine which concen
trates on black issues, said a free-standing
BCC would be a healthy and impor
tant addition to the campus.
. "I'd like to think the center could
have events and speakers and invite
everyone to come," Reid said. "It's a
historical thought that if blacks get to
gether, they're going to cause prob
lems. But I think the center would solve
Alan McSurely, a local civil rights
attorney, echoed Reid's sentiments and
said that a free-standing BCC would
promote racial harmony.
"The University has been a free
standing white cultural center for 173
years," McSurely said. "It seems like

Tsongas departs Democratic
The Associated Press
BOSTON Paul Tsongas pulled
out of the Democratic presidential race
Thursday, blaming his campaign's
downfall on a shortage of cash that kept
him from effectively competing against
front-runner Bill Clinton.
"The alternative was to play the role
of spoiler. That is not what I'm about;
that is not worthy," said Tsongas, a
cancer survivor. "I did not survive my
ordeals in order to be the agent of the re
election of George Bush."
His exit from the race leaves Clinton
as the clear favorite to capture the Demo
cratic nomination, opposed only by the
insurgent outsider's candidacy of former
California Gov. Jerry Brown.

Democratic consultant Victor Kamber.

"I am planning to promote her to vice
chancellor," Hardin said. "This is a pro
motion, not a search."
The Board of Governors and the
Board of Trustees must approve
Coleman's appointment before it is of
ficial, Hardin said. He said he expected
Coleman to be approved in April and
promoted by May 1.
Coleman said the graduate studies
and research departments would ben
efit from her promotion.
"I think this is an important step for
the University," she said. "Research
to support African-American culture.
The argument against letting blacks have
a place to meet by themselves is as old
as the KICK."
Former Durham City Council mem
ber Johnny Williams saidamulticultural

"The approach should be
multicultural because the community is
so heterogeneous," Williams said. "It
would seem that students would come
together. It would be an honor that in
volves all ethnic groups, so no one would
Margo Crawford, director of the
University 's BCC, said that community
support for the request existed but added
that oppositions existed as well.
"I realize there's a good deal of non
support," Crawford said. "But dialogue
is better than silence. It's fine to be
opposed, and I'm striving to respect
other positions," she said.
A multicultural center would be good
for the campus, but could not fill the
needs a BCC would, she said.
"I've done some study about
multicultural education, and it's a fine
thrust," Crawford said. "But the biggest
gap is between whites and blacks. We've
got to stop denying it, start working on
it and then walk away from it."
The large number of black students
who want a BCC warrant commitment
for its eventual construction, she said.
"African Americans have said for 14
years, "This is what we need.'"
"A BCC will teach us to be culturally
skilled. It will help us achieve commu
nity," she said.
"The party is now going to try to coa
lesce around Clinton as quickly as pos
sible." "He is, barring something totally new
and unexpected, the nominee," said Ann
Lewis, another Democratic consultant.
Tsongas, 51, said he left the race
"deeply fulfilled. The obligation of my
survival has been met."
He said that his campaign was too
broke to compete in New York, which
holds its primary April 7, and that his
commitment to the Democratic Party
was too strong for him to stay in the race
at less than full speed.
'To go into New York, defenseless

Hardin said the quality of Coleman's
work in her present job also prompted
him to reinstate the position.
"Dr. Coleman has done such a grand
job," he said.
Coleman said her present title of as
sociate provost and dean of research
would no longer exist if she were pro
moted to a vice chancellor position.
"This would be a structural change in
the administration," she said. "Right

NCAA Tournament thanks to its big
Hubert Davis, who has been UNC's
personal respiratory system so often
this season, could not find his shooting
touch against Miami (Ohio), but Eric
Montross and his 7-foot frame amply
filled the gap left by Davis.
As a result, North Carolina, the
Southeast Region's fourth seed, sur
vived a scare from the 13th-seeded
Redskins in front of 16,000 at the
Riverfront Coliseum. The 68-63 vic
tory was UNC head coach Dean
Smith's 48th in the NCAA Tourna

UCLA coach John Wooden as the

could not get a shot
to fall. Davis had
been taunting the percentages with a
scintillating stretch run, and the odds
finally struck back.
Davis finished 2 of 17 from the
field, 0 of 3 from 3-point range. On the
strength of 1 1 -for-1 1 free-throw shoot
ing, he did manage IS points and
grabbed seven rebounds. But the se
nior scrambled to find his touch all
"I don't know where it was," Davis
said. "Some days you're not going to
hit the open jump shot. Miami played
really good defense. They play physi
cal and put a hand in your face."
North Carolina also survived a fran
tic final three minutes in which it
missed five free throws, suffered two
five-second calls and fouled Miami on
a 3-point shot.
Withadefense that boasted 1 1 steals
in the game, the Tar Heels rebounded
from a seven-point Miami lead early
in the second half to build a 62-55
advantage with 1:57 remaining.
Miami's David Scott kept the Redskins
alive with a 3-pointer, only their sec
ond basket in the last 6:49.
UNC's Derrick Phelps split a pair
of free throws, drew a charge on
Miami's Jamie Mercurio, then split
another pair of free tosses to give UNC
a 64-58 lead with 1:17 left. Mercurio
responded with his eighth 3-pointer of
the game, and Miami had the ball
again when UNC's Pat Sullivan could
not inbound the ball.
Kevin Salvadori added to UNC's
trouble by fouling Scott on a 3-point
attempt, and Scott hit 2 of 3 free throws
to bring the Redskins within 64-63
