Dorrance joins effort to put

By Michael Workman
Advocates working to establish
women's soccer in the 1996 Olympics
have asked UNC women's soccer head
coach Anson Dorrance for help.
Jim Cromwell, congressional liaison
for the Women's Soccer Foundation,
sent Dorrance a copy of a proposed
congressional resolution Monday and
asked him to review the draft.
The resolution would support mak

"He just sent it to me to see if I have
any suggestions,"Dorrance said. 'They
did a pretty good job covering it."

Basketball walk-ons fulfill every. kid's dream of playing in Carolina blue

If you're not an All-American, you
can forget about playing for Dean Smith.
Well, unless you are one of the lucky
two or three selected to walk on the
team each October.
For those few, the dream of playing
in Carolina blue becomes a reality when
they make the cuts to become members
of the famed UNC basketball team.
. This year, only eight players were
invited to try out for the walk-on spots,
and three Jason Burgess, Travis
Stephenson and Larry Smith made
the final cuts.
There is usually only one walk-on
per year at UNC, but the three walk-ons

Chapel Hill that would add commercial
diversity to the town.
Although the project has been on the

"Our biggest obstacle was the high
cost imposed by town requirements for
parking," Peuch said. "When we tried
