NBA experts predict
By David J. Kupstas
Former UNC 3-point wizard Hubert
Davis likely will become the school's
third first-round draft selection in two
years at next week's NBA Draft.
A sampling of NBA scouts and
coaches indicated this week that Davis
will be selected somewhere in the middle
or toward the end of the first round:

Preliminary plans are underway
to bring the three stars of the 1992
presidential season George Bush,
Bill Clinton and Ross Perot to
UNC for a debate sometime this fall,
University officials said this week,
The debate would take place in
September or early October, prob
ably in the Kenan Center or the Fri
day Center, said Stephen Tepper,
associate general secretary for the
Bicentennial Observance Office.
The debate would be a joint pro
duction by the Bicentennial Obser
vance Committee and Hamilton Pro
ductions, a Washington, D.C.- based
production company that has pro
duced several "Watch on Washing
ton" call-in shows, Tepper said.
Jay Hamilton, a UNC graduate
and head of Hamilton Productions,
said plans for the debate were in a
preliminary stage, and that the pro
duction company had not yet begun
to look for funding for the project.
"We haven't even begun reaching
out on it yet," Hamilton said. "Pres
ently, we're gauging whether there's
any interest in such a debate. You
have to get a sponsor before you can
go ahead with any solid planning,"
: Although he would like to use an
older campus building such as the
Playmakers Theater, Tepper said
weather conditions probably would
require organizers to hold a debate at
a newer facility. "I would like to hold
it in one of our older buildings, but
the air conditioning systems in many
of them no longer work," he said.
Chancellor Paul Hardin said
Tepper had mentioned the idea to
him at a recent meeting, although he
had not heard any specifics.
'That would be really neat, but I
haven't heard anything," he said. "I
would absolutely support plans to
bring a debate here."
The Committee on Presidential
Debates recently announced plans to
sponsorthree presidential debates and
one vice-presidential debate. The
commission said the locations of the
presidential debates, which will be
held Sept. 22, Oct. 4 and Oct. 15,
would be announced in several weeks.
UNC, Edwards claim victory
By Anna Griffin
The Step-4 grievance hearing of UNC
Police Officer Keith Edwards against
the University ended Friday with both
sides declaring themselves the winner
in the two-year-old case.
Edwards, an 1 8-year veteran of the
UNC pol ice force, contends in her griev
ance that the University discriminated
against her because of her race and
gender when department leaders pro
moted Lt. Marcus Perry to the position
of crime prevention officer (CPO) in
Edwards was the other applicant for
the position, which involves coordinat
ing crime prevention programs between
the public safety department and UNC
students and staff members.
Although Judge Beecher Gray will
not issue a recommendation until July
or August and the State Personnel Com
mission will not make a final ruling
until this fall, Edwards' attorney Alan
McSurely said Monday that he hoped
Edwards would be given the CPO posi
tion. 'The simplest thing would be to place
Officer Edwards in the CPO job and to
give her an apology for the way they
have jerked her around for the past
couple of years," McSurely said.
Edwards contends that the decision
to promote Perry over her was another

RALEIGH Several UNC house
keepers and their advocates traveled to
Raleigh last week, but many left frus
trated about what they called the state's
"three-corner" attack against their ef
forts for higher pay and better treat
ment. "We feel like a ball being thrown
around," said Marsha Tinnen, who has
been a housekeeper at the University
for about 1 1 years.
The group, which included lOhouse
keepers and one representative from the
Durham-based Southerners for Eco
nomic Justice, traveled in a state-owned
van, sponsored by the Campus Y, to
lobby legislators and state personnel
officials. They were scheduled to meet
with Rep. Joe Hackney, D-Orange, but
Hackney was forced to cancel.
The housekeepers, who filed a griev
ance against the University a year ago,
are demanding higher pay, better train
ing programs andfair supervision. They
hope to set up a meeting early next
month with legislators, state personnel
officials and Chancellor Paul Hardin to
discuss the issues.
"It's like the three-comer defense,"
said Matthew Stewart, who works with
attorney Alan McSurely and led the
group to Raleigh. McSurely is repre
senting the housekeepers in their griev
ances against the University.
Members of the housekeepers' move
ment have asked state Rep. Anne Barnes,
D-Orange, to organize the meeting. "It
could be a chance to just sit and talk
informally," Barnes said. Rep. Joe Hack

But David Parker, an assistant attor
ney general reporesenting the Univer
sity, said throughout the three-day hear
ing that previous complaints by Edwards
and other officers were not at issue and
should not be resurrected.
"This is a very simple case," Parker
said in his opening arguments last
Wednesday. "Keith Edwards applied
for a promotion. Another candidate got
the job. Keith Edwards has to prove that
but for her race, and but for her sex, she
would have gotten the job.
"We are not here to litigate the entire
history of Officer Keith Edwards."
Parker said Tuesday that University
officials had asked him not to comment
on the case.
In March 1990, Lt. Marcus Perry was
selected to fill the position of crime
prevention officer. In the move, Sgt.
Ned Comar, who was several weeks
from retirement, was moved into an
auxiliary position funded by a police
Because Comar moved into a posi
tion not salaried by tax money, the move
did not constitute apromotion, and there

Rob Babcock, director of scouting
for the Denver Nuggets: "I've got Hubert
going somewhere between 20 and 30,
may be even 1 8 to 30, but he could sneak
up in the middle of the first round."
Both Davis and UNC head coach
Dean Smith refused to comment until
after the draft.
Two of Davis' former teammates
were taken in the first round of the 1 99 1
draft. The Boston Celtics chose Rick
Fox with the 24th pick, while the Sacra

Although Chancellor Hardin refused
to organize the meeting, he said this
week that he would provide a location
for a conference between the four sides.
In the past two months, Hardin has met
twice with a group of about 10 house
keepers and their attorneys.
"In our prev ious meetings, they asked
me to convene a meeting with state
representatives," Hardin said. "I told
them that it wasn't within my power to
convene a meeting, but that I would
provide a place for them to meet if they
could organize something."
In its budget proposal finalized Fri
day, the state House of Representatives
voted to increase the "salaries of most
state employees, including the house
keepers, by $522. In addition, the House
approved measures that would allocate
unneeded funds from a performance
pay reserve to implement the acceler
ated pay plan, which was established in
1989 to help increase salaries of the
state's lowest-paid employees.
At press time, the Senate still was
conferring about its budget proposal.

Davis would ever turn out to be pro
material. He came out of B urke, Va., as
a lightly regarded high school player,
his biggest claim to fame being that he
was the nephew of former UNC star
Walter Davis. Hubert Davis played spar
ingly as a freshman, averaging only 3.3
points per game.
His scoring numbers rose signifi
cantly the next two years, jumping to
9.6, then 13.3 ppg. As the lone senior on
the 1991-92 UNC squad, Davis led the
Tar Heels with 21.4 ppg on his way to
earning second-team All-ACC honors.

Phillips takes stands ,
By Josh Boyer
On May 15, a crowd of more than
100 students, faculty and administra
tors gathered in front of Silent Sam to
express their outrage at the refusal of
the Simi Valley jury to convict the Los
Angeles police officers who allegedly
beat motorist Rodney King. Marion
Phillips, associate dean of the School
of Medicine, went just to listen but
ended up addressing the crowd when
someone suggested he speak.
Phillips' impromptu speech became
one of the most electrifying moments
of the entire protest.
"In times like this it becomes im

will to stand up and say this does not
represent what I really feel our soci

we say its a 'rebellion.' It's always a
question of who is defining it."
Throughout his nearly 20-year ca

the Vietnam War and divestment from
At times he has "caught flak" for his
stands, but he said: "If I have caught
flak, it's because I was with individu
als who have shaped some important
questions and improved the quality of
life, and I don't mind catching flak in
order to do that."
Phillips emphasized that he had not
taken monumental risks in standing up
for what he believed in.
Sitting in his office last week, he
said he wondered where one could
learn the sort of courage it takes to risk
one's life for a cause. Phillips said he

Miya said he was unsure what the
future held for his career. "I'm going to
continue to speak out for higher educa
tion and bring in some dollars to the
University," he said.
Campbell said his research interests
involved the long-term effects of drug
use. "I look forward to working with the
outstanding pharmacists in that field at

"I don't care what anybody says, it
was the best of times," he said. "We
honestly believed we were fulfilling the
dreams of our forbearers that we
were beginning to change what was put
in place during Reconstruction.
"The leading industrial democracy
was being lead by young college stu

ety. I doubt if anybody else will have
that experience in the next 100 years."
But Phillips said he also was optimis
tic about the present generation of col

taken last December, Perry said he had
taken the test in a room by himself,

he signed the deposition.

Campbell said he realized he would
face obstacles in UNC's ongoing bud

in higher education, and the key is to
maintain quality education above all
else," he said. "It may be necessary to
reduce enrollment or reallocate funds."
