Rabid UNC football fans tear down the east end zone goal post in Kenan Stadium Saturday night following North Carolina's 26-14 upset win against Georgia Tech

'The stadium cups?" thought the
52,800 empty seats that came to Kenan
Stadium Saturday disguised as half
crazed yet absolutely eophoric football
fans. "Good idea!"
And to the field they were thrown, a
hurricane of plastic.
"Fans, we know you're happy but
please, stay away from the other goal
post," the voice beseeched.
"The other goal post?" thought the
maniacal mob, who never had seen any
thing like this, even on a basketball
court. "Good idea!"

Baking bread spurs Rosey's fire

Exactly five weeks after three Chapel
Hill businesses bumed, fire and police
officials were called to the scene of a
kitchen fire at a popular downtown bar
Rosey's Goodtimes, located at 157
E. Rosemary St., filled with smoke when
baking bread ignited.

Dormitory residents soon might find
out whether the 24-hour lock-up policy
imposed on University residence halls
The Campus Safety Committee, an
organ of the UNC housing department,
will meet Tuesday to discuss whether to
maintain the 24-hour lockup that has
been in effect since September, Hous
ing Director Wayne Kuncl said Friday.
The lockup began after the Aug. 29
rape of a Granville Towers resident in
her dorm room. UNC officials imple
mented the policy during the search for
Hildred Manuel Lyles, the High Point
Jail escapee who eventually was ar
rested and charged in the rape.
Despite the intentions of University
housing officials, reaction to the lockup
has been mixed. Although the housing
department announced that the policy

But after more than a decade of not
winning the "big" game, nothing could
have stopped the Kenan faithful from
celebrating that night, not even police
officers or mom and dad in the crowd
for Parents Weekend and certainly not
the voice of a pompous public address
The fans passed the west end zone
goal post up the bleachers as if they
were playing a big game of hot potato,
until it got wedged in the barbed-wire
fence of Gate 5.
They continued celebrating on the
Kenan grass for almost an hour. And
this is the crowd known for wine and
cheese and leaving an hour early?
The 26-14 win versus Georgia Tech,
the second in a row for UNC at home
against a ranked team, was followed by
an unprecedented celebration at least
no one can remember anything like it.
"As long as they're happy, we're
happy," said Eddie Mason, whose

"It caught on fire and ignited a fire in the
Robertson said the fire department
received the call at 7:35 p.m. and ar
rived on the scene just one minute later.
"We got a report of a kitchen fire and
arrived on the scene," Robertson said.
Although the fire was contained
quickly, officials closed off East Rose
mary Street between Henderson and
Columbia streets, filling the one-block
area with fire trucks and police cars.
Robertson said both Rosey's and Bub
O'Malley's were evacuated because of
the smoke which filled the bars. Bub

.only would be temporary, no decision
has been reached yet, Kuncl said.
Housing officials say they have taken
a close look at security on campus and
have taken measures to strengthen fea
tures they feel are lacking, including the
lock-up policy and the addition of more
lighting on campus.
Kuncl said he had met with heads of
student government, leaders of the Resi
dence Hall Association and other hous
ing officials to try to deal with the
problems of the lack of on-campus se
curity. The lockup initially was approved by
the Emergency Warning Subcommit
tee, which consists of high-ranking hous
ing officials including Donald Boulton,
vice chancellor for student affairs, and
Herb Paul, director of the Physical Plant.
The decision to put the residence
halls on limited access indefinitely has
generated a wide variety of reaction
among students. Different residence
fourth-quarter fumble recovery led to
the game's final touchdown. "I saw
them headed for the goal posts, and I
just got out of their way and headed for
the locker room."
Some players weren't as lucky. Cen
ter Randall Parsons was carried off by
his teammates while quarterback Mike
Thomas was lifted upon the shoulders
of the UNC faithful.
"It was kind of wild," Thomas said.
"People pick you up, take you for a ride.
It was a bunch of ordinary students,
"I turned around, and fans were hit
ting me in the back," linebacker Jonathan
Perry said. "I didn't know what was
going on. It was breath-taking."
Many fans could barely speak as they
spilled onto the field.
"This is amazing. This is the most
exciting win ever in my life," panted
Celi Snyder, who was speaking from
the shoulders of a friend, Steve Speers.
"We painted up our freshman year,
and it' s our last home game ever," B lake

"For precaution, we had both bars
evacuated," he said.
There were no injuries, except that
Rosey's manager Scott Greer sustained
a minor cut on his palm rushing to get a
fire extinguisher, Robertson added.
Greer said it was too soon to tell
whether there was much smoke damage .

"There's probably some damage in
the kitchen," he said. "(Fire department
officials) contained it fairly quickly."

halls have held forums, conducted dorm
surveys and polled residents about their
reaction to the lockup.
"We've had a mixed reaction to the
24-hour limited access," said Wayne
Thompson, Lower Quad area director.
"Some students don't like the incon
venience of the situation, while others
asked if the limited access could be
made into a permanent addition to the
Students have questioned reduced
access to area offices and laundry facili
ties and have suggested the possibility
of putting delayed alarms on residence

and Cobb used delayed alarms to keep
students from propping the doors open.

Campbell said. He and his two friends
were wearing rainbow-colored clown
wigs with their bare chests painted blue.
"Carolina blue, baby! I've got the
fever," screamed Tom Hawkins, who
wrapped his head in one of the UNC
Marching Band's blue flags.
All this, and UNC was favored by
two points. Go figure.
It was like a Super Bowl win, or
football at a football school like Notre
Dame, Michigan or Penn State.
"I've never been a part of anything
like that," said defensive end Curt
Brown. "I love these people. They stuck
with us through everything. I wanted it
so bad, when it happened, it was just a
relief. We needed it to happen."
Many of the players and fans believe
the win assured UNC of its first bowl
bid since 1 982. If the Tar Heels can stay
in third place in the ACC, they earn a
spot in the Peach Bowl in Atlanta Jan. 2.
"It's exactly what the football tradi
tion is at Carolina," Eddie Mason said.
"It's back. I do believe it's back."

"I'm very, very ecstatic," she said
while receiving hugs, flowers and
words of congratulations from friends.
"I'm very surprised."
Ellison, who was named Miss Black

now will begin work on her service
project, which she has dubbed KEEP,

Ellison also said she would like to
use her Homecoming queen position
to improve racial relations.

At an open forum Sunday night, the
Chapel Hill Town Council announced
they probably would appoint the new
council member at Wednesday's meet
ing. Although members of the Chapel
Hill Town Council had changed their
minds under public pressure and de
cided to hold an open public forum for
candidates for the council' s vacant seat,
only about 25 people attended Sunday' s
The seven applicants who attended
the forum answered questions on af
fordable housing, recycling, economic
growth, town-gown relations and the
increase in crime.
Applicants answered two of the six
questions they had prepared.
Several candidates said they thought
communication between the University
and the town needed to improve.
David Strevel said, "The University
has a pattern of a lack of planning, and
then sudden surprises, which is not good
Gloria Williams said one way to im
prove communication between the town
and the University would be to involve
students in town government.
Paul Tripodi pulled out a two-foot
high stack of town council files but
stated that the file on town-gown rela
tions was empty.
"Set together, (the University and the
town) are a source of knowledge," he
said. "Set apart, we're like bookends of
E. Joyce Roland proposed holding
town council meetings at different loca
tions throughout Chapel Hill to make
the council more accessible to the pub
lic. "We have to be willing to meet people
on their turf and stay in touch with
people's needs," Roland said.
Dolores Nesnow said one way for the
town to stay more in touch with its
residents' needs would be to provide
low-interest loans to make housing more
"We need to make it possible for
Chapel Hill's work force to live in the
town," Nesnow said.
Barbara Powell said the rise of vio
lent crime and drug use partially was
due to the economic conditions of some
parts of the town.
