North Carolina 5tate University, a " blue-chip " university with a steady record of benefits to the community, state and nation, is riding the wave of the future — the rise of the high-tech society. With it comes an insatiable appetite for new Knowledge that will enable us to reach ever increasing levels of technological sophistication. Change is inevitable. The 1982 fygromeck showed us the State of yesteryear, when (Left to right) Thomas Young, senior in business management; Tim Vance, doctoral candidate in chemistry; Dennis Draughon, junior in visual design; Alexander Friend, masters candidate in forestry; Sandra Stepney, senior in civil engineering. These State students represent the major areas of academics at N.C.

Opening 5 students worKed under a strict military system and plotted elabo- rate practical jokes. We now come to the not-so-distant past of five years ago as most seniors had not become part of the State community, here is where we look to understand a little about North Carolina 5tate University as it is today. 1978. The university in West F aleigh was still seeking something more than a fleeting identity. Mention of h.C. State reached to regional boundaries at best, in academics and research State played second fiddle to just about every so-called ' " big-name " university in the country, from UCLA and Texas to Illinois and Florida. And without David Thompson and the national basketball championship team of 1974, State ' s national visibility was always brief. Yet State wasn ' t looking for national coverage in news or Football season brings memories of lining up two days for Carolina tickets (right): of course we lost, but we had a great time waiting.

Qenetic research provides disease-fighting tool 5tUnning advances hawe been made by researchers at 5tate and other universities in the manipulation of genetic traits of plants and animals In December 1 982 scientists had succeeded in transferring a genetic trait of rats into mice, fter transplanting a regulatory gene (one which regulates rat growth) into fertilized mouse eggs, the growth trait of the rat was passed on to some of the mice. By manipulating regulatory genes, scientists may one day be able to produce crops and liwestoch with ideal traits such as faster growth, higher yields and more resistance to parasites or adverse climates, according to Dr. John Q 5candalios, head of the Genetics Department at5tate The transfer of the rat growth hormone gene points out a critical issue in genetic engineering, he said. The desirable growth trait of the rat did appear in some of the mice, but the scientists could not predict or control the growth rate of the mice. " Putting a useful gene into an organism does not guarantee a useful change, " he said " With regard to plants, much noise has been made about transferring genes to malie corn that needs no fertilizer, " 5candali05 said. " But will that trait be expressed at the proper time, in the proper place In order to regulate growth and other traits, we have to understand how the cell ' s genetic activity is regulated " In his studies with corn, 5candalios began with the basic questions: how does a plant cell know whether to become a leaf cell or a root cell? how does the simple plant cell hnow when to tjecome a more complex root cell? f nd what determines the number of root cells produced? 5candalios believes that regulatory genes send signals to other genes, which recognize the signals and respond, triggering changes in the cells. But if these precise cell changes are disrupted, the wrong signals are given or the right signals are misinterpreted, birth defects, cancer, abortion or any number of genetic disorders can result in humans and animals; in plants, abnormal plant or seed growth or premature aging may occur If scientists can eliminate or correct these abnormalities at a genetic level, they will be dealing with abnormalities at their source, not just treating the symptoms " From the development of hybrid corn to modern techniques for detecting diseases, genetics has affected human society more than any other science, " 5candalios said " We are progressing so rapidly, there ' s no telling what we may discover in the next five to 10 years.

The University possessed a good base for academics, especially in the scientific and technical fields. In the areas which determine national prominence in an aca- demic program — research grants and respected faculty — many engineering and life science departments already qualified. The collections of D.hl. hill Library were improving markedly. In student entertainment, singer Mike Cross was gaining a devoted following with packed shows at Stewart Theatre. Furthermore, students and faculty dared to drive once again across the It was always tough making that trek across campus to class at eight o ' clock, but it always felt so good when you got out (above). You felt like just making the effort was all worth it, and you always felt more comfortable asking someone for help knowing that you had always been there (right). 8 Opening B - . ■ Lj f Graduate student Robert Ma compares gauge readings on the gasif ier with computer readings. Coal conversion helps reduce air pollution Behind the storefront windows of nddicH tiaii looms a mysterious collection of pipes and wires. To the right, computer terminals display a stream of readings from 96 sensors. Since 1978 the facility — called the Pilot Coal Qasifier I Gas Cleaning Facility — has been helping scientists find more efficient ways to convert coal into commercially useful gases and other compounds. Converting coal Into methane or hydrogen gas before burning is " a more controlled chemical process " than current coal-burning practices, said Dr. J.K. Ferrell, State professor of chemical engineering and head of the pilot plant. Mhough hydrogen yields only 75-80 percent of the original energy content of the coal, the gasification process allows certain by-products to be removed before combustion, resulting in systematic reduction of atmospheric pollution and possible income from the sale of the by-products. Water Is added to the finely ground coal, and the mixture is raised to high temperature and pressure, where It reacts to form carbon monoxide, hydrogen, methane and numerous other compounds. While the processes of gasification are fairly well known, the technology of gas cleanup is not as well developed. Commercial Installations across the country have begun to conven many organic (carbon-containing) compounds into gases. The Tennessee Valley fituthority is converting coal to ammonia for fertilizer, methane Is produced by a plant in north Dakota, carbon monoxide and hydrogen are burned in a gas turbine to produce electricity in Southern California and peat Is being gasified in a Washington Co.,n.C., facility. Under grants from the Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Energy, Ferrell and his team of faculty and graduate assistants have sought the best ways to extract sulfur and metallic compounds from the gas. hydrogen sulfide and sulfur dioxide are major pollutants from coal-fired power generating stations and remain major headaches for utilities trying to comply with federal emission guidelines (See feature on add raln| The gasifier is not run continuously but operates In a series of day-long runs with different mixtures and conditions.

It is difficult to characterize what was to happen to State in the next five years. Enrollment shat- tered records, increasing by six percent annually. At last, the nunnber of total students at State exceeded that of UMC-Chapel hill. But adnninistration insiders point out that enrollment breakdowns better tell this story of growth. Although male students still out- numbered females, the males share dropped from 69 to 64 percent of total enrollment, follow- ing the national trend, (lumbering only a mere 500 in 1962, women accounted for 7000 of the student body by 1982. Former Chancellor John Caldwell called this one of the most profound events in State ' s recent history.

The powerful Cincinnati Milacron robot, which was donated by the Turbine Components Division of the Westinghouse Corp., can pick up parts weighing up to 250 pounds, has a reach of eight to 10 feet and can move its arm at a speed of 50 inches per second. The assembly will give faculty and students an opportunity to use an industrial robot in a laboratory environment for continued studies in the area in image-processing systems. " We use computers, cameras and light sources to help a robot ' see ' as it performs its function on the production line, " said Dr. Wesley E. Snyder, professor of computer engineering, he has studied robotics for more than a decade, particularly the development of " vision " for robots to increase manufacturing productivity. The specific problem is to have the robot pick up turbine blades of varying sizes from a rack, put them through finishing processes and return them to a finished-product point. The goal is to use a broad, thin band of laser light and perception by a small 11 camera to create a seeing eye system to tell the robot what to do. computer will process data the TV camera sees and feed it in milliseconds to the robot control computer The newly-acquired robotic assembly will help further these and other studies in applications such as metalworking, arc welding, spray painting and various " pick and place " functions in manufacturing. " Our ultimate aim is to develop cost-efficient,, reliable robots with vision for the industrial environment, " said Snyder. Dr. hino Masnari, head of the department, said: " Robot cs has become an extremely important and exciting area of research and development It is having a revolutionary impact on modern manufacturing systems, and we are pleased that companies such as Westinghouse are providing support for our robotics effort.

Cowling inspects one of 125 field monitoring sites used to detect acid rain. Acid rain becomes international concern One of the ess obwiou5 results of mankind ' s industrial resolution of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries is the way the earth ' s chemical climate has been changed 5ome of these changes have proven to accelerate the natural weathering of soil minerals and provide nutrients for growth of crops and forests: other changes have caused stress in plants and animals, altered water quality, aggravated nutrient deficiencies in soils and accelerated the natural weathering of buildings and statues. Almost everything man does on a large scale contributes to these chemical changes in the atmosphere: burning fossil fuels for heat, power or transportation, building cities, intensive farming and incinerating wastes. A national network of monitoring stations was set up in 19 76 to determine the damaging effect of these activities. Measurement of the acidity of rain is man ' s most useful statistic of earth ' s changing chemistry — thus the common jargon " acid rain. " State is the base of this network, called the national Mmospheric Deposition Program. By 1980 MDP was able to produce maps showing geographic gradients in the chemistry of rain and snow across theU.5. By 1 982 twelve federal agencies have collaborated on a total of 45 research areas. " Public interest in acid rain research is at an all-time high in many parts of the world. The challenge for us is to satisfy that curiosity . ., " explained Or. Ellis B. Cowling, associate dean for research in the School of Forest Resources and chairman oft1f DP h DP scientists found that acid rain problems are following the population shift to the southern states. 5ulfur and nitrogen compounds from utilities, industrial installations and automobiles were causing the most difficulties in the U.5. though adverse health effects are most easily seen rural areas (drop in water quality, fish kills, crop damage), acidic water can leach out lead from old water lines and cause ser ous health problems for city dwellers as well. The ability of the atmosphere to produce acid rain is relatively short lived compared to other forms of pollution: 50 percent falls out within 500 miles of the source and 90 percent within 1000 miles, reas upwind of the heavily industrialized Ohio [ alley receive some of the heaviest doses of acid rain. Lakes in upper hew York and Canada have become void of fish, but horth Carolina lakes grow in acidity more slowly. The effects are cumulative. hot until June 1985 have government and administration officials recognized the need for acid rain regulation. One official admitted cautiously that curbing emissions from Midwest power plants would reduce acid rain in hew England. But Cowling noted that " the public will pay " for the necessary emission controls -WJAW. Opening 13 from 70 countries in 1982-85.

It was an extraordinary year, to be sure. students must delegate their free time in college. First priority is to read that first chapter of physics before the test on Monday (below).

Japan Center pronnotes international exchange center for Japanese studies has been created at state to sparH economic, academic and cultural e change between llortti Carolina and Japan. " The Japan Center is a yisible commitment on behalf of the state to make the Japanese aware that north Carolina wants them — that we are willing to learn their culture and their language for trade — and that North Carolina is the ideal place for them to locate, " explained Walter R, Johnson, the state ' s chief industrial recruiter. Contrary to the widespread belief that Japan is chiefly an exporter, the country is a huge importer of tobacco, apparel, electrical machinen and soybeans — products which North Carolina produces in abundance. The country is by far the largest purchaser of North Carolina tobacco. Of the Z 7 Japanese firms now in the state, e even are manufacturing facilities and many of the others specialize in selling state-of-the-art technology to the textile industry for increasing plant productivity. Japan is becoming increasingly important to the state economy. Seeing a need to bridge language and cultural barriers, James B. Hunt Jr. sought public and private funds to be used in appointing a director and establishing a Japanese language instruction program. This program, lihe the Japan Center, is an integral part of the University, but Its resources are available to citizens and companies who seefi to strengthen ties between North Carolina and Japan. State ' s Japanese language program is the larges, in the southeastern U.S. and serves both undergraduates and Japan Center f eilows. Four years of Japanese are offered through the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures. In order to build a base of specialized competence on Japan across a wide range of disciplines. Fellows are selected each year from a campus-wide competition among people in the sciences and the humanities. Group participants undergo 180 hours of Japanese instruction and a month of concentrated study at a school near Tokyo, then spend several months within the country working in collaboration with Japanese colleagues in their areas of specialization. Upon returning to North Carolina they share their experiences and participate in the activities of the center " When they return, we will have developed a reserjoir of talent who know quite a lot about Japan. They will help facilitate the movement of Japanese investment and capital into North Carolina and at the same time help move North Carolina products to Japan, " said Robert O. Tillman, dean of humanities and social sciences. -W.JW, Opening 15 16 Expose Yourself •X ' ec;]:B.x-k. i olA a In the first pages of this yearbook we have seen how far M.C. State has advanced in the years we called ourselves students. We should all feel proud of our part in making State a better and more demanding school. But we caused State to be more than a scattering of academic departments and residence halls. In our individual ways, we made up the spirit of the University — the ones to shout the cheers and to wear the cap and gown. This section, which made its debut in the 1982 Agromeck, features a sample of State students in amusing and incriminating poses. Included are some of State ' s student leaders for the 1982-83 school year, such as Technician Editor-in- Chief Tom Alter (wearing the 1982 April Fool ' s issue at left), and some equally talented members of the student body.

Brown graduated from Wayne State Univer- sity in Detroit and is the founding dean of the School of Communica- tions at Howard University. Brown has been selected as one of the top 50 National Black Newsmakers. 68 Spring Events Bob Kramer: In the middle of the Stu- dent Center Gallery stood a magician, and instead of showing off his talents, he was teaching them. Later that night in Stewart Theatre Bob Kramer performed his magical tricks. He also gathered willing participants from the audience. Spring Events 69 NX. State ._fS ' . r C y f t •■ pv 2 ' JL " .. ■ - i-;4 NC Symphony: In celebration of its 50th an- niversary. The North Carolina Symphony performed Benjamin Britten ' s War Requiem on March 25 and 26. This masterpiece is bas- ed on the work of a young poet named Wilfred Owen who was killed in France in 1918 and of the Latin Mass for the Dead. The piece was first performed in the Coventry Cathedral in 1962. i 70, Spring Events Itzhak Perlman: Named " Musician of the Year " in 1980 by Musical America and featured on the cover of Newsweek, Itzhak Perlman per- formed to two sold-out crowds of 15,000 in Reynolds Coliseum on January 17 and 18. At the age of four Perlman had already decided to become a violinist afterhe heard the recording of Jascha Heifetz. Shortly thereafter Perlman was struck with infantile paralysis which left him crippled in both his legs. Perlman often speaks for the handicap cause, and this devotion is an important part of his life. Perlman ' s performance was nothing less than superb and those who had waited outside the col- iseum for over an hour to see him felt the wait was well worth it. Spring Events 71 Choir Boys: One of the oldest — and yet youngest — institutions, the Vien- na Choir Boys performed at Reynolds Coliseum on January 29 and 30 as part of the Friends of the College programs. The Vienna Choir Boys, performers ages 8-14, is the oldest choir, having been established in 1498 under the Holy Roman Empire. The two hour performance in- cluded a one- act operetta by Johann Strauss entitles " Wierner Leben " and pieces by Franz Schubert. For an encore the choir rang out with Dixieland. 72, Spring Events Ailey Company: The fifteen member Alvin Ailey Repertory Ensemble portrayed the wide range of emotions which are the essence of the blues: Been down so long Getting up don ' t cross my mind When you see me laughing I ' m laughing to keep from crying The dance performance receiv- ed favorable responses from both the audience and a News and Observer review. Spring Events 73 Bob Seger: " Nine Tonight " was the opening song for the Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band performance on February 27 in Reynolds Col- iseum. Prior to Seger ' s perfor- mance the John Hall Band was hosted. Included in their perfor- mance was " Dance With Me " and " Still the One. " Then Seger played songs from his most recent album The Distance. The night closed with the songs " Hollywood Nights " and " Night Moves. " ( " 4 Spring Events Spring Events 75 76 Spring Events Internl. Nights: Several times each semester the Union Activities Board and various other organizations combine their efforts to hold dinner and dance festivals featuring a different culture or country each night. This spring students, faculty and Raleigh residents were invited to dine on the cuisines of India, the Philippines, Vietnam and Latin America. Spring Events 77 Joe Jackson: Dressed in a State teeshirt and bagg ' black pants, Joe Jackson gave an interesting performance at Reynolds Coliseum on March 27 which was marked by a power failure during the encores. Jackson and his five-piece band played for more than two and one half hours. Included in his performance were his hits " Breaking Us In Two " and " Is She Really Goi ng Out With Him? " Jackson, who is known to be angered b ' an unappreciative audience, shouted " Silly boy " at a fan who said " How ' bout that Wolfpack. " This outburst seemed to quiet the audience and the per- formance continued until an ex- ploding transformer on East Cam- pus silenced the show for good. 78 Spring Events I Dan Fogelberg: Fogelberg gave a solo perfor- mance in Reynolds Coliseum April 15. The capacity crowd stood in the rain waiting to get into the col- iseum to see Fogelberg. Students were worried that the one-man performance would not be up to his usual level. They need not have worried because his performance was top-notch. Fogelberg said the reason for his solo performance was; " Every once in a while I get this urge to play these songs the way they ' re supposed to sound. " Spring Events 79 80 ' Spring Events Picnic: Picnic, written by William Inge, was performed by Thompson Theatre April 12-16. This play, geared to the college level au- diences, told the story of an in- dividual ' s struggle between identi- ty and security. The play takes place in a small American town in which relationships are analyzed. The play was said to have been the most successful production of Thompson Theatre in years. Spring Events 81 fc» , ■ .£: Beyond Fringe: From March 22 to 26 Thompson Theatre, Alpha Psi Omega and National Dramatic Fraternity per- formed their first studio produc- tion of the semester. Beyond the Fringe, produced solely by students, was a comedy show of vignettes. Under the direction of David Thompson, it was witty and humorous in the British stvle. « - 82 Spring Events I 1 Spring Events 83 Feudin : Laced with themes from the story of the Kentucky feud bet- ween the Hatfields and McCoys with Romeo and Juliet undertones, Feudin ' in Frog Pond was this year ' s production of Thompson Theatre ' s annual Frog Pond series. 84 Spring Events Spring Events 85 Music Dept: An integral part of State ' s cultural sector includes the hard work, devotion and talents of the Music Department. Each year this department features concerts, recitals and programs of musicians of varying talents. This year the Music Department featured their musician-in-residence Patricia Peterson at several concerts. Another important part of their programs is their Annual Christmas Concert. 86 Spring Events 16 • •v:.- ' ' • " ' r- %fv ■k r- -«i Dorsch Spring Events 87 88 Spring Events Spring Events 89 . Miss Moo U: Lined across the stage are ' " women " of all shapes, sizes and dress, each flaunting her assets before the judges. The Miss Moo U contest, sponsored by Alpha Phi Omega, is a male dress up contest, where each male put on his best dress. The students then voted for their favorite Miss Moo U by plac- ing a penny in a basket for each vote. The money raised was donated to Easter Seals. 90 Spring Events Spring Events 91 Outdoor Jams: A few weeks before finals every year different areas of campus plan a day of music: many drink, others sun and others just wander in to meet their friends. This year Central Campus sponsored three bands, featuring the band Sidewinder, and East Campus sponsored the Pedestrians. Unfor- tunately West Campus Jam, which was to feature Sugar Creek and George Hatchett, was cancelled due to rain. Despite the loss of Zoo Day in 1981, these music events continue to be traditions at State. 92 Spring Events Ci ' 1 ii r «a • 94 Sprinji Events Graduation 83: America possesses " an awesome agricultural output and stunning computer technology, " asserted speaker Bill Monroe, pro- ducer of the public affairs show " Meet the Press, " during a sun- bathed commencement ceremony for 3,600 students. Monroe told the crowd that " There is vigor written all over this country " and that historians 100 years from now will call this America ' s greatest century. These State graduates were living under a continuing recession and the possibility of not finding a job.

Spring Events 97 Tlie Times of Our Lives September through April s we studied, worked i and played, the world refused to stand idle and placidly await the day we would assume our places among its society . . . Yet, at the same time, we would be wrong to say the world simply passed us by during our school year of 1982-83. Born into the tail end of the postwar baby boom, our generation has been one of the few to know very little of war- time, but changing times are nothing new to us . . . As schoolchildren we heard parents and teachers mourn the assassinations of Dr. King and Senator Kennedy, and we stayed awake one hot summer night in ' 69 to see Neil Arm- strong ' s shadow on the moon. We came of age in time to com- prehend the significant end of the Vietnam War, but were far too young to recall anything of its beginning . . . As adolescents we watched th e price of gasoline increase fourfold and the price of calculators decrease fourfold, while words like " energy crisis " , " inflation " and " digital " were fast becoming standards in our breakfast-table vocabulary. We saw political change (other than assassination) and we learned new words like " scandal " and " impeachment " . . . And by the time we were try- ing to decide on a major at North Carolina State University, " hostage " , " space shuttle " and " new wave " were already worn out words that had replaced the " peace " , " Apollo " , and " Beatlemania " of our innocent past. No, change is nothing new to our age. After all, most of us at State in 1983 had survived the administrations of six U.S. presidents.

M nd the 1982-83 school year J began no differently from any we had known. Early September found the nation stinging from the death of Henry Fon- da. Heart disease killed him at 77. America was still losing her heroes, though we only remembered Fonda as Norman Thayer in his only Oscar per- formance. On Golden Pond. The media went haywire as a future king was born in London, and Presi- dent Reagan called in the Marines to monitor a PLO evacuation while Israel pounded Beirut civilians with jets and artillery. After folding the News and Observer and closing our textbooks at night, we could probably be found reading Bruce Feirstein ' s popular spoof on machismo. Real Men Don ' t Eat Quiche. Before the world had recovered from the shock of a Nazi-style massacre in West Beirut, it had lost another hero — Princess Grace of Monaco. Like that of Fonda, however, Grace ' s death was a loss suffered more acutely by our parents ' generation than by our own. For a day or two that September our minds were in California, at the US Festival, a three day " Woodstock of the Eighties " that featured red-hot groups like " Fleetwood Mac " and " The Police " (The festival was thrown by Apple Computer baron Stephen Wozniak. ) But not all American entertainment World Events 101 went as smoothly as our rock ' n ' roll.

A week later, President Reagan reluctantly announced a post- Depression unemployment high; the nation ' s joblessness had reached ten percent and was still climbing.

Automobile entrepreneur John DeLorean had been heralded in Cutty Sark ads for throwing his GM bosses off his back and succeeding with his own car design, while Detroit suffered disastrous losses. (I was unable to understand why my father had referred to DeLorean ' s operation as a " fiasco " during a dinner conversation at the height of DMC ' s success.) John awoke one October morning to find his debt-ridden firm shut down by the British government and hours later was placed under arrest, charged with co- caine trafficking and held under $5 million bail.

And less than three days after the death of the Soviet president at 75, former KGB chief Yuri Andropov emerged as his successor.

That week ' s cover of Time magazine summed up the elec- torate ' s sentiment: ' Keep on Course — but Trim the Sails. " America took a timely step in healing the festering wounds of our unpopular Asian war. On November 13, the com- pleted Vietnam Veterans Memorial was dedicated in the nation ' s capital. For fifty-six hours, names of the war dead were read at the National Cathedral — the young names which were chiseled into the polished black granite of the subtle, reflective monument. " It is a reminder of the cost of the war, " wrote Newsweek ' s V illiam Broyles Jr. " It is a bill of sale. " For days, friends and relatives wept at the names of those who were never honored, due to a domestic controversy remembered on- ly vaguely by the youth of the eighties. And then it was December. Ted Kennedy announced that, in order to devote more time to his fami- ly, he would not seek the presidential nomination in ' 84. A Seattle dentist named Barney Clark found sudden fame as the world ' s first recipient of a man-made heart. Built by Dr. Robert K.

In March, another foreign jungle was in the news. This time it was El Salvador. As communist rebels became an increasing threat to the stability of the current government, Reagan called for more economic and military aid to the Central American hotspot.

The Pack, coming off a 4-7 year, headed into the campaign ready to rebuild, yet trying to salvage a good sea.son from one of the Pack ' s toughest schedules ever. The State gridders started the season with experience in the defensive secondary and the offensive line and added to that a deep offensive backfield and a young offensive line. The result was a mixture of talent and veterans that generated curiosity. The biggest question as the season started was who would be the Pack ' s quarterback for 1982. Tol Avery had an off year as a junior but State head foot- ball coach Monte Kiffin elected to go with him over three other candidates and never questioned his decision. Early sea.son illness hamix-red the play of the Pack offensive line to start the sea.son but State was still able to sweep its first three outings. The Pack started off the season with Furman and shut out the Purple Paladins 26-0. The young State defensive line prtv ved that they were a capable lot while the Pack offense started off sputtering and broke open a 0-0 halftime score. State ' s star runningback Joe Mcintosh rambled for 130 yards and Avery passed for 174 yards in a 13 for 25 day. Averv pa.s.sed for two of the State touchdowns as he ended a sea.son of frustration and won the offensive gameball by com- 1 14 Sports ia pleting passes of 11 and 23 yards to Ricky Wall and David Davis and Mcintosh ran for the last two. In the year ' s second game the Pack locked horns with arch nemisis East Carolina. The Pirates were opening their season against State and came into the game as underdogs. But Ed Emory ' s Pirates were installing a new I-offense and no one really knew what the Pirates might do. What they did do was play State to a 33-26 game. Sports 115 I Although the Pack took an early 7-0 lead on a Mcintosh 11-yard run. The Pirates came bouncing back with a pair of field goals. The score each quarter was 7-6 for the first three periods as State built a 21-18 lead. Avery had ran for one TD and passed 18 yards to wall for another but a pair of ECU TD ' s kept the game close although the - fail- ed to convert twice on point-after runs. The Pirates outdid the Pack in almost e er category but the score in the game as they amassed over 300 yards in total offense. A pair of Mike Coger field goals and a 56-yard pass from Avery to Wall sealed the ictory despite a last-ditch effort by the Pirates that netted them another TD with only 2:4.5 left. The Pirates recovered an onsides kick to set up a possible winning drive but senior cornerback Perry Williams intercepted a Pirate aerial to thwart the effort. Avery led the Pack with 182 yards in the air to go with Mcintosh ' s 118 rushing ards before the second largest crowd in State historv ' , 55,200. Emory may still be crying about this game as he did for several weeks. Nobody really knew how bad Wake Forest was till they came to Carter-Finley Stadium for the Pack ' s third game. State racked up 10 points in the first quarter on a 15-yard pass from Avery to Wall and a 47-yard field goal by Mike Cofer. Cofer added another pair of field goals in the second quarter as Cofer knocked through another 47 yarder and hit a 37 yarder, also. Mcintosh, who carried for 111 ards, ran nine yards for the first of two fourth period scores for State and gameball winner Andre Marks carried for another TD as the Pack w rapped up a 30-0 win. David Shelton led a defensive effort that stop- 116 Sports ped the Deacs on 207 total yards. Avery moved into third place on the all-time State completion list as he completed 14 of 22 for 202 yards. The Pack ' s fourth encounter brought the first disaster of the season. States 23-6 loss at Maryland spurred talk of how the 1982 season compared to 1981 when the Pack won the first three, lost to Maryland, beat Virginia and then lost six straight. The big, physical Terps scored 20 second quarter points, taking advantage of Wolfpack mistakes to record two TDs and a pair of field goals. State quarterback Tol Avery suffered a concussion in the game and backup Ron Laraway came in to direct State ' s only score. Laraway passed for 124 yards and Avery added 99 for State while a hobbled Mcintosh was held to 39 yards. Willie Joyner led Mar land ' s attack with 117 yards. Heading to Virginia under new head coach George Welsh was a party for most teams but Pack mistakes made the going rough for State in the early stages. The Cavs held a 13-3 lead at halftime on two Wayne Morrison field goals and a five- yard Virginia TD pass. State added a 32- yard field goal before the half. The Pack dominated the second half as they tallied 325 total yards to Virginia ' s 255 for the game. Mcintosh missed the Cavalier outing for the second straight year due to injury, but freshman Mike Miller and senior Andre Marks combined for 130 yards as each scored a second half TD to 118 Sports rally State to a 16-13 win. The winning score was set up by a 53-yard punt return by Jeff Byrd. After escaping Charlottesville, the Pack was faced with the formidable task of delivering a victory to Pack fans from No. 8 North Carolina in Kenan Stadium. As everyone had guessed, it couldn ' t be done. The Heels took a 17-2 halftime lead with State ' s only score coming on a blocked punt through the endzone. The Heels con- tinued to dominate in the second half as V " ' ■ V " J- ' 1 iMiiaaT i iiiii ■■- " _. Sports 119 State ' s only score came on a 44-yard in- terception return by senior cornerback Dee Dee Hoggard. The Tar Heels ground out 438 net yards to States 102 as the No. 1 defensive team in the nation trounced their arch- rivals 41-9. The next encounter was a needed trip home. But the competition was the defend- ing national champions — Clemson. The Tigers were ready to be upset. The Pack played excellent on offense, but the defen.se just made too many mistakes and State fell to 4-3 with a 38-29 loss. State ama.s.sed 394 yards in total offense to the Tigers ' 346. The Pack ' s matchup against South Carolina finally came to Raleigh after three straight Columbia dates. It was a very pivotal game for the Pack in that the broke a trend from last year ' s season. The picture looked bleak after Mcintosh went down with an ankle injury in the first (juarter. But tailbacks Miller and Lar- mounf Lawson rushed for 158 and 93 yards respectively to pace State to a 33-3 whipping of the Gamecocks. The Pack defense was playing well once again and limited South (Carolina to 263 total ards while the Pack offense totaled 430 yards, 34.5 of which were on the ground. Following State ' s fun filled weekend against South Carolina, the Pack traveled to State College to rap up a memorable, 12-year series with Penn State. The Nit- tany Lions are always an adventure for State, since the Pack always plays the Lions tough. But this game as the exception to the rule. State did not have such a great time in the Keystone state as Penn State laid out the Pack 54-0. The Lions were definitely the best team State played all sea.son as the Penn State defense capitalized on every W ' olfpack error and the offense poured on the power. The Pack had not experienced a defeat like this since the ' 60s. Duke was another storv ' though. A split ticket describes how people felt about State chances going into this game. Some felt the Pack would bounce back; others felt State would pack up their tents on the rest of the ,sea.son. It looked like the latter was right as State mistakes gave the Blue Devils a 10-0 halftime advantage that could have been worse. But the Pack rallied behind Joe Mcintosh ' s 133 yards and Mike Miller ' s 100 to go along ith Tol A er ' s 94 yards pa.s,s- ing and beat Duke 21-16, before a large homecoming crowd. Critical Blue Devil turnovers caused the third quarter tur- naround that gave State the win, the big- gest coming when Duke tried a tight end pass that w as intercepted in theendzone by State cornerback Ken Loney. The State season ended on a sour note. After the Duke win the Pack felt as if a bowl might be on the hori on and indeed the Independenc-e and Hail of Fame bowls showed some interest in State. The Pack. howe er, didn ' t have the power to beat Miami and the Hurricanes routed the Pack 41-3 in the Orange Bow 1. Miami ' s defense took advantage of several State turnovers, and the Miami no-name offense pushed State ' s defense to the limit in posting the win. The Pack thus ended the season, 6-5 and was not extended a bowl bid. State did show some good young talent in the sea,son and at times flashed signs of being a good football team. But at times the Pack was not ver - good. It was that inconsistency that caused State head coach Monte Kiffin to have to fight for his job by the end of the season. Tol Avery etched his name into the record books in many spots to lead the Pack offense on the year. Joe Mcintosh, although injured most of the year, still tnanaged a good campaign. Seniors having good offensive years were Earnest Butler. Ken Jenkins, Bobby Longmire, Stanley Davis, Andre Marks and although injured part of the season, Jeff Nyce, and Doug How ard. DefensiveK , David Shelton, Eric Williams, Dee Dee Hoggard, and Perry Williams all had good senior sea.sons. Overall it was a roller coaster .season for the Pack but a definite improvement over 198rs4-7 mark. — William Terrv Kelley 120 Sports Sports 121 Soccer After losing seven lettermen and four starters from a team w hich gained the school ' s first NCAA post-season bid. State soccer coach I.arrv Cross had plent of reason to believe that 1982 would be a rebuilding year. Perhaps the ability of the replacements was underestimated. Whatever, the W ' olfpack, though not repeating an appearance in the national tournament, still enjoyed a fruitful season. The Pack posted a surprising 15-3-1 o erall record, finished fourth in the challenging ACC. with a 2-3-1 mark, placed Ifith in the final IS. ' KA regular-season national poll and led the nation in scoring with a school-record 87 goals. State ' s striking tandem of all-ACC performers Sam Okpodu and Chris Ogu, considered the fastest front-line duo in the countr . pro ided a 1-2 punch «hich scored 59 goals. Okpodu. a fleet-footed sophomore from Warri, Nigeria, cracked the ACC record for most goals in a season with 29 goals, bettering a 19- year record. He also contributed 14 assists, shat- tering an ACC mark for most points in a .sea.son with 72. A junior from Lagos, Nigeria, Ogu knocked in 19 goals and 21 assists. gi ing him an ACC record for most a.ssists in a season (46). State, one of fi e top 20 teams to be denied a pla off berth, w as a oung team, with only two seniors listed on its roster in Dann Allen and Budhy Barber. The W ' olfpack defense managed to tie a school record for most shutouts in a season (12), while allowing onl 18 goals for the season. Junior goalkeeper Chris Hutson was credited with 10 of those shutouts. While allowing onK- two goals, the Pack roared to a 7-0 record, with early-season victories over UNC-Charlotte (5-0), Erskine (7-0), Atlantic 122 Sports Sports 123 ■ h I 124 Sports .-. Christian (7-1), Roanoke (7-0). East Carolina (6-0), UNC-VVilmington (4-1) and USC-Spartanburg (8-0). State got its first taste of defeat in its first con- ference outing at the hands of national- ly top 10 power Clemson, dropping a 5-0 decision. Down the mid-season stretch, the Wolfpack earned si.x more big ictories: 4-0 over High Point, 5-0 over George Washington, 6-1 over Guilford, 5-0 over Maryland, 5-0 over Pembroke State and 5-0 o er Virginia Tech. State found its final si.x-game stretch to be a challenging one, as it lost two ACC games and tied another. The Pack provided a strong challenge to the na- tion ' s second-ranked team, Virginia, before dropping a 2-1 decision. In its next two contests. State managed a 4-4 overtime tie with a pesky North Carolina team before blanking Wake Forest, 4-0. With a 13-2-1 record, the Wolfpack found itself in a position to uncrown the nation ' s top-ranked team, Duke, and to earn its second NCAA appearance. Holding a 3-2 lead with 10 minutes to play against the Blue De ils at Lee Field, the Pack seemed destined for an upset. But Duke rattled off two goals, spoiling State ' s hopes ith a 4-3 victor . That near-up.set opened some eyes within the national curcuit. In its last game against a tough South Carolina squad. State was obser ed by an NCAA committee member and nipped the Gamecocks, 1-0. A post-season berth appeared to be assured, but the Wolfpack was denied. Gross felt that the progress of his new pla ers was the biggest factor in State ' s success, but the difference in last year ' s team was its level of maturity. The newcomers — Harry Barber, Ed Liebe, Sam Owoh, Harald Taylor and Stese Dombro sk — stepped in and per- formed abo e their expectations. The Pack ' s otlier starters — fullbacks John Hummull, Bakty Barber and Francis Mondiedafe — gave the team much maturity and experience. Striker Mason Farrell, midfielder Stan Winstead and goalie Brooks Holle - provided needed backup. With the loss of only starter and a horde of experience in its pocket, Gro.ss thinks next ear ' s team ill be the be.st in State ' s histor . — Devin Steele Sports 125 Cross Country Despite many injuries on both State ' s men ' s and women ' s cross country teams, the 1982 season was a rewarding one. In pre-season national rankings the Wolf pack women were placed fourth. Head coach RoUie Geiger had hopes for returning AU-American NCAA champion Betty Springs and senior Sue Overby, but both women had pre-season injuries. Geiger then focused his attention on in- coming freshmen Connie Jo Robinson, Lynn Strauss and Sharon Chiong. All three were promising runners from their respec- tive high schools. The Pack women also wanted to win back the ACC title they lost to Virginia last year. So the pressures fell to the incoming freshmen. Returning for the men ' s cross country squad were Mike Mantini and John George, who participated in the 1981 Na- tional Indoor Championships 1,500-meter rac e and Kevin Huston, a Division II na- tional cross country champion transfer from Pembroke State University. In the season opener against North Carolina on Sept. 18, the Pack men and women showed their strength by bruising the Tar Heels 29-28 and 31-26 respectively. In her first collegiate meet freshman Connie Jo Robinson, a recruit from Cin- cinnati, Ohio, won the 5,000-kilometer race with a time of 17:20.4. Sandy CuUinane and Kim Sharpe placed third and fourth respectively. In the men ' s event George placed se- cond, followed by Huston and Tobin in the third and fourth place spots. The women harriers dominated their se- cond meet of the season against Texas, Penn State and Virginia Tech, placing first with 27 points. Penn State followed with 33 points. Once again Robinson placed first, Cullinane and Sharpe fourth, Strauss and Chiong 9th and Uth. At the conclu- sion o f the meet Geiger said, " Three of our top five were freshmen, so our future looks bright. " Less than two weeks later, the women harriers captured all the glory by winning the North Carolina Cross Country Cham- pionships. Finishing in the top four places, holding hands as they crossed the finishing line, were Robinson, Cullinane, Strauss and Sharpe. Chiong captured fifth place 26 seconds later. The men harriers didn ' t fare as well and finished 4th out of a field of 12. Huston was out due to injury. George managed to capture second and pulled the Pack for- ward. Coach Geiger looks forward to next year. His current freshmen will return ex- perienced and add a great deal of depth to the 1983 season. — Linda Snell Finding a certain lack of depth and experience missing from the previous season, head golf coach Richard Sykes found the going rough at the beginn- ing of the 1982 season. But returning All-ACC Nolan Mills and All-. mcrican Roy Hunter, com- bined with a few potential freshmen. made the season a less dismal one. In the Wolfpack Invitational, the first tee-off of the season, the State placed sixth and seventh. North Carolina placed first with a score of 880, followed by South Carolina and Guilford. Freshman Jeff Lankford, in his first collegiate tournament, was State ' s top ix-rformer with score of 22.3. The Wolfpack women golfers ' season was little better than the men ' s. Head coach Cathy Dunbar ' s team lost their first tournament to Duke at the Women ' s Blue Ridge Mountaineer Lady Golf Tournament. Beth Schumaker and Jamie Bronson placed seventh and ninth, respectively. The men ' s team lost to the Tar Heels once again as Carolina captured the top spot at the Ryan Memorial In- vitational at Duke. State golfer Roy Hunter led the Pack and placed ninth, .scoring 923 points. Another disappointing tournament was the Dunlop Invitational at Pickins County Country Club in South Carolina on Oct. 8, as the men golfers placed fifth with a team score of .588. The men ' s first win of the season was the Hargro e B. Da is Invita- tional on Oct. 20. State stroked in two points less than Carolina, beating them with a team score of 729. Freshman Braxton led the Pack with an indi idual score of 141. Despite the Pack ' s man los.ses Mills. Hunter and Braxton added depth to the golf team.

Koffman 128 Sports Sports 129 . !aj ;V: .i ' t i i Men ' s Basketball The Cardiac Kids rose to the occasion by winning ten straight games against the nation ' s best to bring back NCAA gold Lorenzo Charles, the burly sophomore forward, picked off an errant Dereck Whittenburg 30-footer and jammed the National Championship through the hoop, ending the most exciting and shocking three weeks of basketball at State, and perhaps in the history of the game. State, known as " the Cardiac Kids " going into the cham- pionship game, became " Phi Packa Attacka " after shocking heavily favored Houston 54-52 to win its second national ti- tle in nine years. Seven times in the last nine games — all do-or-die tourna- ment games — the Pack kept the fans in the stands and the basketball world stunned. The championship game was supposed to be Houston ' s fraternity of Phi Slama Jama ' s party, but for the fifth time in post-season play, the Pack shocked the favorite and spark- ed State ' s own celebration. State held a 33-25 lead at halftime, but the bonfires on the brickyard were almost lit prematurely. Houston came out the second half smoking and almost ex- tinguished the Wolfpack ' s fires by outscoring the Pack 17-2 to take a seven point lead and put the Pack in that all too familiar situation — behind with time running out. Behind the long-range bombing of Whittenburg, Sidney Lowe and Terry Gannon the Pack scratched back, aided by Houston ' s misses at the free throw line. The Pack tied the game up with just over a minute to play, when Whittenburg hit a jumper which had Pack fans holding their breaths for what seemed eternity before the ball swished. After Houston ' s Alvin Franklin missed the front- end of a one-and-one, the Pack held the ball for the final shot. The tension mounted as the clock ticked slowly — oh, so slowly — down, and the show almost had a tragic ending when Houston ' s Clyde Drexler nearly stole the ball from Whittenburg which he would have easily jammed home, but Whittenburg recovered and threw up his desperation shot, which had overtime marked all over it. But waitl There he was. Mr. Charles all alone, jumping up and plucking Whittenburg ' s shot like a wounded duck and sending 25,000 screaming Wolfpack fans onto the brickyard, Hillsborough Street and the Ramada Inn in Albuquerque. State started the season out with high hopes, but more than once the Pack was in the cellar with the door on the verge of being locked. After jumping out to a quick 4-0 start, the Pack showed signs of being a great team in a 57-52 loss at Louisville. How could anyone have ever known that these two teams would make it to the Final Four? Louisville is always considered a Final Four participant, but State showed that it could play with the big boys. While students vacationed, the Pack got back on the win- ning streak with wins over West Virginia, Fairleigh Dickin- son and a big league win at Clemson. But the Pack ended the Christmas break traveling to Missouri to face the highly ranked Tigers. The Pack couldn ' t buy a basket in the second half and the Tigers pulled away from a 35-35 tie to win 49-42 and send the Pack to a 7-2 record. Even with the loss, Wolfpack spirits were still high, knowing that both losses were to top ten powers. Disaster Number One. January 12. Ralph Sampson and the Virginia militia roll- ed into town, but State felt prepared with its long-range bomber Whittenburg. Whit bombed from every where except the locker room in the first half and State led the Cavs by five at halftime. Then early in the second half, Whittenburg threw one up from the corner and landed on Othell Wilson ' s foot and crumbled to the ground with a broken fifth metatarsal bone in his foot. As Whittenburg was led to the locker room, the Pack ' s spirits began a long, slow plunge to the dumps. Sports 131 132 Sports With Whittenburg out, Sampson and company poured it on to stop State 88-80, but the depression sunk even deeper when the doctors announced that Whittenburg would miss at least six weeks and possibly the season. With Ernie Myers taking Whittenburg ' s place, the offense showed signs of life but often sputtered. State dropped four of its next six games, winning only against Duke and Georgia Tech: two teams saturated with young, in- experienced players. Included in the losses was an embarassing blowout at the hands of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The Pack looked lost on the court, and the season appeared ready to be flushed down the tubes. As bad as things seemed after the North Carolina game, they got worse. Maryland added the last loss of the streak with a humiliating 86-81 defeat at College Park. After the game, Valvano told the writers he had a fantasy that Whittenburg would come back and the team would win the ACC championship. You should ' ve bet your house on that one, Jimmy V. State bounced back with four straight wins, but was still not playing very well, evidenced by its poor showing in two wins (Furman and The Citadel) in the North- South Doubleheader. State sported a 13-7 record when Notre Dame came to Raleigh for a national- televised tilt. The game was slow and boring for 35 minutes, but heated up down the stretch. State, down by one and with the ball, held for the last shot. Gannon took a wide open 20 footer, but the ball bounced out and State dropped to 13-8. Just when it seemed that things couldn ' t get any worse. North Carolina made the 35-mile trip to Raleigh ready to stomp the Pack again. But State knew that its was now or never as far as 1983 was concerned. Whit less, the Pack scrapped back from six down with six minutes left and gave Valvano his first win over the Tar Heels, sending Pack fans into bedlam. A sign of things to come down the road, both on the court and off. State whipped Duke and traveled to Virginia amid rumors that Whittenburg might play. How ironic. Whit did play — not well — but he did play, scoring 14 points on a rusty 4-of-13 shooting performance. The Pack fell 86-75, but spirits were rising with the return of Whittenburg. Then Maryland stormed Reynolds Col- iseum and embarrassed the Pack for the se- cond time with a come from behind vic- tory. With a record of 16-10 and only Wake Forest left to play in the regular season, it looked like NIT time for Jimmy V. and company. The Pack blew Wake out 130-89, and many said it wasn ' t so much due to State ' s great play but Wake ' s almost non-existent performance. The Deacons went home and had an en- tire week to think about the blowout as the two teams prepared to meet in the opening round of the ACC Tournament. Wake almost pre ented the Wolfpack express from rolling at all as they rebound- ed from the previous week ' s blowout to give the Pack all it could handle. Lorenzo Charles, mirred in the shadows of Thurl Bailey, Lowe and Whittenburg all year, was the hero three times during Sports 133 the Pack ' s dramatic drive to NCAA gold. Wake played the Pack even the entire game and in the last minute of the game the score was tied at 70-70. The Deacons however, fouled Charles with three seconds remaining, giving " Lo " the chance to be a hero. Charles .stepf ed to the line and threw up the first one, which almost broke the rim. After a timeout, Charles again stepped to the line and canned the second one, giv- ing State a 71-70 victon. ' and a big boost of confidence going into the .semi-final game with North Carolina. North Carolina, the defending national champions who State had beaten earlier in the year, had mauled Clemson in the first round and appeared read - to dine on wolf. State had a five point lead late in the game, but the Tar Heels scrapped back and tied the game at 70 apiece and had a chance to win it, but Sam Perkins ' 30-footer rimmed out and the two arch- rivals went to overtime. The Tar Heels used the momentum gathered at the end of regulation to pull to a quick 82-76 lead, but North Carolina coach Dean Smith could never have guess- ed that his Tar Heels would suddenly lose the shooting touch. State was a different team now. It believed in itself. i 136 Sports I Gannon canned a pair of free throws and Whittenburg hit a downtown jumper for three and then put the Pack up 83-82 on a baseline drive. North CaroUna retahated with a basket to lead for the final time at 84-83. Whittenburg displayed his icy nerves and senior experience by canning the win- ning free throws with 19 seconds left, and Bailey canned four in the final seconds to send the Pack into the finals against Ralph Sampson and Virginia. State coach Jim Valvano had never beaten Virginia, but State was a different team now. It believed in itself. State jumped out to a quick 12-1 lead, but Virginia wasn ' t ranked No. 2 in the polls because it rolled over and played dead. Virginia fought back and led by as many as eight with eight minutes to go. But due to the shot clock, the Wahoos couldn ' t hold the ball and consequently the lead. Bailey sparked a 13-1 surge, and when the shot clock went off with four minutes to go the Pack led 75-66. Once again Virginia clawed back. With 35 seconds left the game was tied and Virginia had the ball — even more scary, it was Sampson with the ball. Then, whoosh! Sampson didn ' t have the ball. Gannon rob- bed the next NBA franchise as he went up to shoot, and Baile - and W ' hittenhurj; iced the W ' oifpack ' s first ACC championship since 1974 — another memorable year for Pack fans. The Pack was in the NCAA Tournament and 3,000 miles from home. Hello Corvallis, Oregon. The Pepperdine Waves, underrated by everyone, looked upon it.self as a " Cinderella team " that was gonna knock off the big boys. Blame it on first- round jitters or jet lag, but the Pack missed its first 12 shots and found itself in a dogfight with the West Coast Athletic Con- ference champs. With the game tied, 47-47, and 2:39 left, the Pack held for the final shot. Lowe drove to the basket but made one move too many and lost the bail with two seconds left. Pepperdine couldn ' t get a shot off, and the game went into overtime. Reserting to its typical overtime form, the Pack let the Waves jump out to a quick six-point lead. .53-47. As the Waves missed free throws, Gannon can- ned a bomber. Charles muscled one in and Baile ' scored on a fastbreak that pulled the Pack to within two with 23 seconds remaining. For the Pack. 23 seconds was enough time to have a cup of tea and still pull off a miracle or tAvo. After Pepperdine mis.sed a free throw, Whit- tenburg mis.sed from the charity stripe. Suddenly it was Co ' s turn to wear the superman suit; c-enter Cozell McQueen grabbed the rebound and tossed an eight-footer through the hoop sending the two weary teams to a second overtime. Realizing that enough was enough, the Pack jumped out to a quick lead on eight Whittenburg free throws and two by Charles before the Waves made their final run. Gannon and Alvin Battle made steals in the waning seconds as the Pack escaped round one with a 69-67 double overtime nerve-wracking victory. Bring on the Runnin ' , Gunnin ' Rebels of Nevada-Las Vegas. Sidney Green had gained considerable atten- tion from the State players by his highly touted .skills on the court and widely open mouth off the court. Green had said that Bailey hadn ' t impressed him at ail and that Brooklyn budd ' Charles always had been and still was " under me " . Bad choice of words, Mr. Green. The Pack trailed 52-40 with 11 -.40 to go and the Runnin ' Rebels should have known that it was all over. The Pack, behind the inside strength of Bailey and Charles, roared back to trail by only four with 7:49 left. Baile - would eventualK- get 25 points and Charles 17 points. Bailey put the Pack down by one, 70-69, on a baseline jumper, and UNLV ' s Eldridge Hudson 138 Sports 140 Sports i I missed a free throw with 32 seconds left. Charles grapped the rebound and the Pack held for the final shot. The dead-eye Whittenburg put up an 18-footer with eight sconds remaining, but missed. Bailey tapped it, but the ball wouldn ' t drop. Then Bailey grapped his missed tap over Green and put an in-your- mouth-Mr. Green-shot off backboard to put the Pack up by one. UNLV missed a prayer from 35- feet and it was on to Ogden, Utah, to showcase a new kind of game. An easy win. Led by Whittenburg ' s 27 points, the Pack ran past the Utes 75-56 even though Utah trailed only 32-30 early in the second half. Next on the roll call, Virginia and Samp- son. Round two. Many fully expected the parade to get rained out right here. The Cavs were the team that most picked to win it all, and after shaking first game jitters, the Cavs had disposed of dangerous Boston College and had their sights set on revenging the loss in the ACC finals. Virginia started out fast jumping to a 10-point lead , but the Pack came back and trailed 33-28 at halftime. The never-say-die Wolfpack tied the score at 43-43. As time ran down the two teams swap- ped baskets, with Sampson dominating play at the Virginia offensive end. Exuding confidence, Whittenburg drove to the basket with the Pack trailing 62-61 and less than 30 seconds remaining. Often kidded for not passing the ball, Whittenburg made the biggest pass of his life when he found himself trapped on the baseline and dished off to a wide-open Charles. As Charles went up for the power layup, Sampson came from nowhere to try and block Charles ' shot. Sampson missed the block, but got Charles to send the massive forward to the line. Charles calmly stepped to the line and canned both to give State a 63-62 lead with 23 agonizing ticks of the clock left. Virginia had one last chance when Tim Mullen took a wide-open 18-footer, but Mullen ' s shot missed and Othell Wilson grapped the rebound and threw up a six- footer that hit nothing but air. McQueen grapped the ball and held on long enough for time to expire. For Sampson, the loss ended a great four-year career, and for the Wolfpack, the win sent them to the Final Four. In the first game against Georgia, the Pack came out smoking and at one point led by as many as 18 points in the second half. But keeping the tradition going, the Pack squandered the lead and Georgia trailed by five with four minutes to go. The Pack regained its composure and hit its free throws to win 67-60. The road to the NCAA gold was an amazing run of great basketball, a little luck and sheer excitement, but could almost be considered a miracle when one takes into account that Whittenburg miss- ed 14 regular season games with a broken foot — returning only three games before the ACC tournament — and that members of the team (including Whittenburg and Valvano) had the flu during the Final Four. The men responsible for three weeks of basketball pandemonium are: Head Coach Jim Valvano and assistants Tom Abatemarco, Ray Martin, Ed McLean, and graduate assistant Max Pern, ' ; trainer Jim Rehbock; seniors Thurl Bailey, Quen- tin Leonard, Sidney Lowe and Dereck Whittenburg; underclassmen Alvin Battle, Lorenzo Charles, Walt Densmore, Tommy Dinardo, Tern, ' Gannon, George McLain, Cozell McQueen, Ernie Myers, Dinky Pro- ctor, Harold Thompson and Mike Warren.

The ACC finals loss marked the fourth time in six years that the Pack has reached the finals only to be beaten by the Terps. The Wolfpack did reap ACC glory though, winning the regular season crown with a 12-1 record. On the year the Pack went 22-8. The Pack ' s season ended in the first round of the NCAA tournament with a 96-80 loss to Penn State at Reynolds Coliseum. In an up and down season, the Pack started the year out with five quick victories before hitting on hard times. Losses to national powers South Carolina and Old Dominion sandwiched a loss to Francis Marion and the Pack appeared in trouble before ACC play even began. But in the consolation game of the Winston Tire Classic, coach Kay Yow ' s squad gave an indication of things to come with 76-69 win over highly regarded Rutgers. The Pack started ACC play with three victories before traveling over to Chapel Hill for a grudge match with North Carolina. State trailed the entire ball game, but with 10 seconds remaining and down by two points, Linda Page took a 15-foot jumpshot which would have sent the game into overtime. The shot hit the front of the rim and fell hopelessly into the hands of a Tar Heel player, giving the Pack its first and only conference loss. The highlight of the season came when the Pack travelled to Maryland to take on the unbeaten and sixth-ranked Terrapins. Behind Page ' s 26 points. State shocked the Terrapins, 76-71, and sent word through the conference and na- tion that the Wolfpack was for real. Sports 143 Following the big win at Maryland, the Pack travell- ed to the State of Tennessee and were upset by Ten- nessee Tech and beaten by Tennessee. The Tennessee loss was the turning point of the sea.son though as the Pack played well against the Vols gained confidence which carried through the re- mainder fo the season. The Vols taught the Pack importance of the big man and for the rest of the season State got the ball inside w hich opened up the outside evenmore. Losses are never easy to take, but Yow could see the importance of that game. " If a loss can be termed a good loss then Tennessee could be. " Yow said. " We played well at Tenne,s.see and the team really started to pla better after that game. " The Pack won their last six games, all of which were conference games, including victories over North Carolina and Maryland at home which wrapped up the regular season crown. Individually the Wolfpack was led by the sharp- shooting Page. The Philadelphia, Pa., scoring machine averaged 22.9 points per game which led the con- ference. In the ACC tournament. Page averaged 33.3 ppg. for the three games and shared co-MVP honors with Maryland ' s Jassmina Perazic. While Page has two years remaining to thrill Wolfpack fans, seniors Angle Armstrong, Sherry 144 Sports Sports 145 146 Sports Law-son and Karen Brabson played prominent roles in their four years wearing Red and White. Armstrong finished her career as the all-time assist leader in Wolfpack history and joined the elite 1,000 point club. Lawson missed only one game in her four year career and earned a reputatuion as one of the most versatile players to ever don the Red and White. In her four years, Lawson played forward, big guard and point guard. Brabson started at times during her career, but made her reputation as a reliable player off the bench who at only 5 " 9 " could hold her own under the boards with the big people. While Page and Armstrong were recognized as the Statistical leaders of the this team, the unique aspect of this ball club was its quality depth. At the center spot, freshmen Priscilla Adams started, but 6 " 7 " ' Ronda Falkena came on strong the second half of the sea.son and the two combined for 16 ppg. At the power forward spot, Claudia Kreicker started, but was more than amply backed up by Mary Jane Wild and Adams. In the backcourt, Armstrong and Lawson were back- ed by sophomore Robyn Mayo and freshmen Debbie Mulligan. The lightnening quick Mayo led in the team in .steals and is the heir apparent to Armstrong ' s job. At the start of the year not many people expected State to have the success it had this year and Yovv knew that it w as because of her players " This team does not have as much talent as some teams that have been at State, " Yow said. " But they play together better than any team I ' ve ever had and they play great defense.

Next the spikers traveled to Va.shington, D.C., to play in the George Washington Invitational. In the past Uvo years the Pack has captured the title, but this year the Pack fell to the Maryland Terrapins in the finals. At the Wolfpack Invitational the following week the Pack bowed to the Duke Blue Devils in the semifinals. On Sept, 28 the spikers were defeated by the Tar Heels 15-12, 3-15, 15-4, 15-7 before 600 spectators in Carmichael Gymnasium. Following that defeat the Pack traveled to Colum- bia, S.C, to play in the South Carolina Invitational. In the semifinals the Wolfpack beat South Carolina. Then the Pack was defeated by Georgia in the finals. Welch and Sprague were named to the all-tournament team. The next two weeks were tough for the spikers. On Oct. 11 the Pack was crushed by Appalachian State. Sprague and Diane Ross collided during the game, and Sprague was taken to the hospital for a slight concus- sion. Then Duke tra eled to Carmichael Gymnasium and the Pack defeated them. On Oct. 17 the Virginia Cavaliers came to the Pack ' s territory and the Pack won 15-9, 15-5, 15-10. The Virginia game was a key conference match, and it advanced the spikers record to 18-5 overall and 4-0 in the ACC. In another home game against ACC team Clemson, the Pack won 10-15, 14-16. 15-13, 15-8. That moved the spikers ' record to 20-5 overall and 5-0 in the ACC. The first ranked team ever to play in Carmichael Gvm were the 17th ranked Pitsburgh Panthers. But the defeated the Wolfpack in the first three games.

But the spikers came back slipped by Appalachian State: 15-5, 15-10, 9-15. 12-15. 15-6. The Pack won despite many injuries on the team. When the Pack went to the ACC Tournament they were 23-10 and seeded second in the conference. The 1982 tournament, which was held in Charlottesville, ' irginia. brought upsets to many teams. The Pack lost to Duke and North Carolina beat Clemson in the semifinals. Then Carolina pr(Keeded to crush the Duke team to win the title for the third consecutive year.

Snell .4 Wrestling Once again State ' s wrestling team wore the crown of Atlantic Coast Conference Champions this year. The championship marked the third year in a row the W ' olfpack were champions, and it was the fifth title in eight years for a Bob Guzzo-coached W ' olfpack team. The Pack .sported five individual conference cham- pions, each of whom participated in the NCAA Cham- pionships. A trio of juniors. Tab Thacker. Chris Mon- dragon and V ' ince Bynum. along with senior Craig Cox and sophomore Greg Fatool. won titles in the con- ference tourney. For Thacker the title wa.s his third in three years, while Mondragon and Cox each captured their second consecutive title. For Fatool and Bynum the title was their initial championship. A sixth W ' olfpack wrestler, senior Steve Koob, was given an at- large bid to the national tourney by way of his runner- up finish in the conference. The road to the championships was not an easy one for the W ' olfpack. State suffered its first conference loss in three years when the Clemson Tigers dealt the Pack a 21-12 defeat in the teams ' last regular-season match, stopping State ' s conference win streak at nineteen. State ' s only other two losses came on the road to top ten teams Navy and Nebraska. Among the teams thirteen wins were a pair over arch- rival North Carolina, and a win over a top-twenty team from Tennessee. A number of individuals stood out for the Pack this season, but none more than heavy-weight Tab Thacker. The 380- pound W ' inston-Salem native stands a chance to become only the second wrestler in ACC history to win four conference titles if he can successfully defend his crow n next year. He spent most of this year ranked second in the nation and became the first Wolfpack wrestler to compete in the prestigious East- West all- star classic where he dropped a 5-2 decision to Nebraska-Omaha ' s Fred Rigatuso. He finished the regular season with a 17-2 record, his other loss coming to Clemson ' s Duane Baker, a loss he avenged in the conference tournament. Junior Chris Mondragon also excelled for the Pack, finishing the regular .season with a 23-1 mark. Mon- dragon was ranked as high as fourth in the nation in the 1.58-pound class, and was riding a twenty- match winn- ing streak into the nationals. One W ' olfpack wrestler. Steve Love, saw his career end prematurely when he suffered a dislocated elbow against the Tar Heels. Junior John Connelly suffered a knee injury late in the year which hindered his bid for a conference crown. Other wrestlers who played a major role for the Pack were Ricky Nagrete. Billy Starke and Kurt W ' entz. — bv Todd McCee ( ' f 152 Sports Swimming This season was one of the toughest for State ' s men ' s swim team. Coach Don Easterling knew his team lack- ed the important ingredient of experience. State had one of the youngest teams in the conference with onK seven returning lettermen, so Easterling had to deix-nd on his 17 freshmen. The freshmen were able to come through though, and along with the returning letter- man, gave State a 7-2 overall record and a 3-2 con- ference mark. For the past 12 seasons, the Wolf pack have yet to earn anything less than first place in the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship. This year, however. State had to settle for a very unfortunate second place behind North Carolina. The team had some high and lows in the ACC Championship, but should have a great chance in sweeping the Championships next year with its return- ing young swimmers. The one segment of the Wolfpack team which seem- ed to keep State close in all of their meets were the divers. Diving coach John Chandler led his team of two freshmen and two sophomores to numerous one and three- meter diving board titles in State ' s dual meets this season. State ' s women ' s swimming team, however, enjoyed another very successful season. The 1982-83 campaign resulted in a 6-3 record overall, and a 3-2 conference mark for head coach Bob VViencken ' s women tankers. W ' iencken, in his second year at the helm, experienc- ed difficulty coping with numerous cases of sudden il- lness and injury to his squad, as well as a lack of depth. Even at full force, Wiencken ' s roster listed only 13 swimmers and 3 divers. But for what the Pack women lacked in quantity, they made up for in quality. Although placing an uncharacteristic fourth in the ACC Championships, the Wolfpack won 10 events, and, when the water had stilled, four of Wiencken ' s swimmers had qualified for the NCAA championships in eight different events. Leading the way, as they had done all season, were senior co-captains Beth Emery and KelK ' Parker. And though this pair represents the only tankers Wienken will be without next season, he realizes that replacing the All-American duo will be no small task. " It ' s going to be tough to replace people of their caliber, " W ' iencken said. " They both just did a super job for us. They were two of the best we ' ve ever had here at State. " In the conference meet, Emery qualified for the NCAAs in five different events, with her strong suit be- ing the sprint freestyles. Parker had ([ualified earlier in the mile, during a midseason match with Virginia — a confronation which saw the Wolfpack delight a parent ' s day crowd by upending the previously unbeaten Wahoos. W ' iencken will miss his two seniors, but hope lies ahead. Namely, Hope Williams — a freshman butterf- ly sensation from Raleigh. Williams enjoyed an unbeaten season in her fly events, and qualified for the NCAAs in all three. Another unbeaten newcomer was Tricia Butcher — a freshman from South Africa. A distance freestyler, she qualified for the nationals in the 500 and 1550-yard events. Meanwhile, State ' s divers, coached by former two- time Olympian John Candler, had one of their best years ever. And only good things can lie ahead for Candler ' s pupils. Both Jackie Devers, the conference champ on both the one and three- meter boards, and Susan Gornak, a top three finisher on each, are freshmen. Devers qualified for the NCAA Women ' s Swimming and Diving Championships which were held at the University of Nebraska. With an experienced group of 14 letterwinners retur- ning next season, Wiencken ' s team will certainly be challenging for conference and national honors for years to come. — David Kivett and Scott Keepfer ' - - » |. 154 Sports at «? %■ ■ir ' . ' Sports 155 Riflery The rifle team ' s year was, as team captain Jeff Arman- troiit i)iit it. " Like a roller coaster ride. " The season began like many before had iH-gun — as a " rebuilding ear. ' Yet after practice began and trvoiits were held, it looked like the team would have as good a shot at the nationals as the year before. Then came a plateau that began to erode the teams con- fident-e. " We went through about two weeks of realK in- tensive training trying to bring the team up out of its rut. " stated head coach John Reynolds. " In a sense it worked. W ' c shot better in our qualifying match than we had for weeks. " But no bid to the NCAA Championships follow- ed. The sea.son ended on an up note — a twelfth ACC Championship victory and several indications that next season w ould be more than just a " rebuilding year. ' " " There were some surprised faces at the SIRT (Southern Intercollegiate Rifle Tournament) and ACC Champion- ships, " ' smiled Reynolds. " " One of our walk-ons two years ago popped up and won the ACC title. Next years looking better all the time. " With a schedule that included some of the top schools in the country, the team gives much of the credit for State ' s final 9-6 record has to go to coach Re nolds and his assis- tant head coach, wife Edie. Since 1975 the Reynolds have been directing the Wolfpack ' s rifle team, producing a pro- gram that has put State on the map in shooting circles. Practice is held nightly twice a week for up to six hours, and because the team has no on-campus facilities matches must be scheduled away — almost every w eekend October through March. Each of these matches are broken into two phases — smallbore and air rifle competition. In the smallbore (.22 caliber bullet) phase, each shooter fires 120 shots, 40 each from the prone, standing and kneeling positions. In air ri- fle (.177 caliber pellet), team members shoot 40 shots from the standing position only. Four shooters comprise a team or squad. State ' s " red ' team being team captain Armantrout. sophomores Keith Miller. Dolan Shoaf and John Hildebrand. Their combin- ed scores determined who won a match, but other team members usually participated also. Competitors can score a maximum of 1 .200 points in the smallbore phase and 400 points in the air rifle phase. All- America shooters generalK score in the 1.100s smallbore and usually abo e 37.5 in air rifle. Shooting a ten — hitting the bullseye — requires the marksman to hold the rifle perfectly still. Any mo ement above .005 of an inch can send the bullet out of the 10- ring — a dot the size of the period at the end of this sentence. At this stage even movement due to heartbeat becomes critical, causing most shooters to wear sweatshirts underneath their already thick leather shooting jackets. This padding dampens the effects of their pulse. These demands require the shooter to exhibit exceptional balance, stability, reaction time and stamina o er a course of fire that may last as long as six hours. According to Shoaf, " Some days you feel like all the time and energy you have to put into it just isn ' t worth it — but then you think about how it feels to shoot a pin- whwl (perfect ten) and all the great people involved. It ' s worth it. " — Ralph Craw 156 ' Sports rik. Fencing The Wolfpack fencing team undiTUfiit si-M-ral changes this year, the most significant being the rei)lacctncnt of last year ' s coach Trish Mullins. Steve Andreaus replaced Mullins as the new coach. For the first time the team had both experience and more depth than in jiast seasons. The men ' s fencing team heat several outstanding teams including the University of ' irginia. William and Mar , and ' irginia Tech. In a bout against arch rival Carolina. the team was defeated 22-5 but not without victories bv Tom Single. Ramsev Ziade and Charles Fadal. Women ' s fencing captain Diane Weider gave several outstanding performances throughout the season. In a meet against Virginia Tech, Weider and freshman Tam- my Stout both were 3-1 defeating Tech 1.5-11. In a tie breaker against MIT Weider won 9-8. Co-captains of the men ' s fencing teams Single and Peer Beveridge helped their team stay on top. Other outstan- ding performances this season were given b - Jeff Mc- Cullough and Ramsey Zidde. In a semi-final meet against William and Mary. Mc- Cullough went undefeated, and all the other team members went 2-1 to crush William and Mary 1.5-1.3. But the final meet was won by Temple University 14-13 with Ziade and Beveridge going 5-1. The women ' s team also won their final meet against Lvnchburg College. X ' irginia and William and Mar -. Strong performances were given h Helen Blumenauer and Stout. — L.S. Koffman 158 Sports Sports 159 Tennis States tennis teams didn ' t fare well in the ACC, with both the men and women bowing to near last place finishes. But the men ' s team finished the season 16-8, an improved finish from la.st year ' s record of 14-10. The women ' s team concluded the season at a disappointing 5- 10 after compiling a 7-6 record in la,st year ' s spring season. Lacking depth, the team wa.s going through a rebuilding ear after the loss of several outstanding players from last year. Both teams were directed by first-year coaches. Henry Brandon replaced Danny Moore as the men ' s coach, and the new women ' s coach was Sarah Harmon. The men ' s team opened the season with a loss to Old Dominion 6-.3, onl to beat Guilford two days later 8-1. No. 1-seeded Scott Fleming and No. 2 Tony Baker played exceedingly well. The women ' s first game was rained out, so the first match was against Ap- palachian State, which ended in a win for State. Ne. t the team played Arkansas and lost 9-0. The Pack then tra eled to Tennessee over spring break only to lose to Tennessee 9-0. On March 13, the team did beat Middle Tennessee State 5-1. In the ACC Championships, the womens ' team tied for sixth place against Marvland. The title went to Clemson who captured the singles and doubles finals. The men ' s team didn ' t do as well, finishing se cnth only ahead of Georgia Tech. The championship w ent to Clemson again for the third time. Duke finished second and Chapel Hill third. Both teams are looking toward next year. Many of the players w ill be returning with hopes of added depth and consistency to their teams. — L.S. Koffman 160 Sports Sports 161 A Baseball It doesn ' t seem to matter what the cir- cumstances, Sam Esposito ' s State baseball teams perennially seem to win 20 games. The 1983 edition of Esposito ' s Wolfpack was his 11th consecutive 20-game winner, and it wasn ' t easy. The Wolfpack entered the .sea.son minus such veteran mainstays as outfielder Louie Meadows (playing professionally in the Houston A.stros organization), pitcher Joe Plesac (with the San Diego Padres organization), relief pitcher Jim Rivera (in the minor leagues for the Atlanta Braves), all-time offensive star Ken Sears (graduated) and relief pitcher John Mirabelli (current graduate assistant coach) . The returning cast had some bright faces, but one of the brightest, senior right fielder Tracy Black, suffered a knee injury in the third game of the season and was lost for the vear. This meant veteran center fielder Chris Baird was surrounded by rookies — Andrew Fava in left and Mark Celedonia in right. Baird went on to make the all-conference team, hitting .338 with seven homers, 24 RBIs and 35 runs .scored. " Anytime you lose a player like Tracy Black, you ' re gonna notice it, " E.sposito said. " Tracy ' s one of the finest outfielders around, both with the glove and the bat. It not only hurts our starting lineup, it hurts our bench. " On the infield, there was a new look also, a promising one at that. Infield defense had beem a problem for years for the Wolfpack, but the 1983 Pack featured a freshman shortstop who not only could make the routine plays, but .some non- routine ones as well. Doug Strange stepped into a pressure spot in his first year of college ball and did an excellent job. He had a double-play partner who was new to the turf as well. and both Strange and second baseman Joe Maciejewski helped to anchor a Wolfpack defense that was totally unlike any the Pack had had in years. " We ' re definitely a better defensive ballclub, " Esposito said. " We ' re still gonna kick a few balls around from time to time, that ' s ba.seball, but we ' re gonna make some plays, too. " To further complement the new infield, slugger Tracy Woodson moved to a new position — third base. After serving as a designated hitter and second baseman as a fre.shman, Woodson moved to third in the 1982 North State Summer League and made the league all-star team. The move was a success. There was never any doubt of Woodson ' s prowess as a power-hitter. As a freshman, he cracked eight round- trippers and drove in 37 runs after finally making the lineup as DH. As a sophomore in 1983. 162 Sports Sports 163 Woodson broke the school single-season home run record, bashing out 13 homers and driving in 52 runs. Had it not been for nine rained out games, Woodson might well have smashed the single-season RBI record of 59, set by Chuckie Canady in 1981. As it was, Woodson moved into second place on the State career home run list with 21, just three behind all-time leader Canady. The catching was of veteran quality for the Wolfpack. Team captain Jim Toman, a junior, and sophomore Doug Davis split the receiving duties nicely, although a hamstring pull hampered Toman during much of the middle part of the season. He still hit .333 with 29 RBIs, while Davis hit .283 with four homers and 21 RBIs. Injuries played a big part in this season. Black hurt his knee. Toman pulled the hamstring. Strange was spiked by one of his teammates and also hurt his ankle, and first baseman Tim Bar- bour had se eral small nagging injuries and then broke his thumb the final weekend of the season. He was back in the lineup in the ACC Tourna- ment, less than a week later. " I thought we had our share of injuries last year when someone went down every day, " Esposito said. " We " re starting right where we left off last year. It ' s hard to explain. " On the mound, the starting pitching was a lit- tle thin, and the relief pitching was all new. Danny Plesac, Hugh Brinson, Mike Pesavento and Mark Roberts formed a .steady starting rota- tion, one that had to produce seven good innings each time out. The bullpen was simply too inex- perienced, and only freshman David Hall saw much key action. It was not an easy road to 20 wins. Good early- season hitting, combined with solid defense and starting pitching propelled the Wolfpack to a 14-5-1 start, including conference wins over Duke and nationally-ranked North Carolina. The Wolfpack finished the regular season with a 22-11-1 record and a 9-4 mark in the ACC, good for second place. Toward the end of the season, several of the Pack ' s top hitters began to slump, and it was the starting pitching and the improved defease that kept the team in the conference race. In particular. Hugh Brinson was outstanding against ACC foes, recording a 3-0 record in ACC play with a 1.46 ERA, one save and 26 strikeouts in 24 innings pitched. Brin.son started three con- ference games and completed them all. For the season as a whole, he was 7-1 with a 3.10 ERA and 55 strikeouts. He allowed only 38 hits in those 52 innings, and in 24 innings against the league, he allowed ju.st 12 hits. Those are the numbers that won him team MVP honors, yet somehow he was left off the all-ACC team. " Dav in and dav out, he did as much for us as 164 Sports anyone could, " Esposito said of Brinson. " As for the all-conference team, Ken Echols of Maryland made first team with a 2-4 record, and Ken Faye of Duke, whom I have a lot of respect for, made the second team with a 2-5 record. I honestly thought Brinson had a much better year than either him or Echols. " The Wolfpack was eliminated from the ACC Tournament in the third round, and the slump- ing bats struggled despite a brief resurgence against Georgia Tech in the opening round. After building a 10-1 lead on the Yellow Jackets, the Wolfpack had to hold on as the Jackets surg- ed back into the game before falling short by a 10-7 score. In the next two games, excellent pitching per- formances by Jeff Gilbert of Clemson and Jimmy Long of Duke ended the season for the Wolfpack. " We ' re very disappointed that we didnt do better in the tournament, " Esposito said. " We were in two very fine- pitched ballgames, and one big inning killed us in both. We didn ' t do much with the bats in those games, but credit the pit- ching with that. " This was kind of a funny year for us. We had injury after injury and had to use a lot of young people. We went into the final weekend of the season with a shot at first place, and I ' m very pleased with that. We had a very fine regular season. " — Bruce Winkworth Sports 165 Softball After losing only two seniors from last year ' s team, the State ' s softball team ended the season 12-12, a disappointment from last year ' s record of 22-17. The Pack ' s infield va.s solid with last year ' s stunning sophomore. Sue Williams, moving from pitcher to second base, replacing Dawn McLaurin. Replacing Williams was senior Diane Snook. Behind home plate was Donna Tanner, and third was picked up by senior Gina Miller. Third year coach Rita N ' iggs felt the team had depth, and that her returning players were strong. Whether it was the movement of players, or just plain tough competition, the softball team didn ' t fair well. They opened the season with a doubleheader loss to Pembroke State on March 16. These losses were followed by a split doubleheader against UNC-Charlotte. A complete win finalh came on March 23 against Wilmington. The next five games were positi e ones as the team held a five-game winning streak. On April 8 and 9, The Wolfpack held their an- nual Softball Invitational at Pullen Park. In the opening contest State defeated Baldwin- Wallace 9-4, only to be beat by East C arolina in the semi- finals. Two of the season ' s losses were against ri al UNC-Chapel Hill. In post-season pla - the team competed in the tournament at Graham State. 12 teams vied for state champions, and top-seeded East Carolina worked hard for the win. — L.S. Koffman 166 Sports » Sports 167 Track and Field The weather was cold and rainy at Clemson, S.C., for the Atlantic Coast Con- ference Track meet and State head coach Tom Jones was soaking wet after just pull- ing himself out of a nearby creek, but an ear-to-ear grin on Jones ' face told the whole story. State had just pulled off a come from behind win to claim its first ACC track championship 169-163 over Clemson. " What can I say, " Jones said. " The kids just did a super job. " Down by as many as 53 points at one time on the final day of competition, the Wolfpack grabbed the lead when the fleet foursome of Harvey McSwain, Alston Glenn, Perry Williams and Dee Dee Hog- gard went one, two, three, six in the 200- meter dash. The four sprinters had got the Wolfpack express rolling earlier in the day when they hooked up to win the 400-meter relay in a meet record 39.93. Up by nine points with two events re- maining, Jones knew his team had its work cut out for it because one of the events yet to be run was the 5,000-meter run where Clemson was loaded with talented, ex- perienced runners. But seniors Mike Man- tini and John George and freshman Ricky Wallace shocked the Tigers by taking third, fifth and sixth respectively to pick up nine important points. Clemson had taken first and fourth in the race, but was only able to cut the margin to four as the teams prepared for the relay event. For Mantini, his third in the 5,000 end- ed a great meet in which he had placed se- cond in the 3,000- meter steeplecha.se the day before. Mantini was the leader of the State distance runners which scored an unexpected 27 points in the meet. Along with Mantini, the other big sur- prise of the meet was senior Kevin Huston. Huston shocked the Clemson distance run- ners the day before with a gutsy effort to take second place in the 10,000-meter run with a school record 30:01.79. After the meet, Jones knew the contribu- tion that his group of spindly distanceman had made. " I just can ' t say enough about those guys, " he said. " They just did a great job. " All the team of Sherman Home, Brian Burns, Frank Anderson and Gus Young had to do was finish ahead of Clemson and the title was State ' s. As anchorman Young churned toward the finish line, Clemson trailed State by 20 yards and the Wolfpack team members new that the championship was theirs. Young ' s anchoring the relay climaxed a great meet for the junior from New York. Earlier in the day he won the 110- meter high hurdles in 14.43 and led a one-two Wolfpack sweep in the 400-meter in- termediate hurdles finishing just ahead of Anderson in 52.33. With the conference crown safely back in Raleigh, the Wolfpack headed north the next weekend to try and defend its 400- and 800- meter relay championships at the Penn Relavs. 168, Sports Two days before the Relay Carnival, the Pack was dealt a severe blow when it learned that leadoff man Williams and third-leg Hoggard would miss the meet because of football obligations. In their absence. Young would leadoff and long jumper Jake Howard would run third. After qualifying easiliy for the finals in both the 400- and 800- meter relays on Fri- day, many obsevers felt that the Pack would lose their crowns to either Arizona State or Tennessee. The Vols were the team to watch with the No. 2 ranked hurdler in the world in Willie Gault an- choring. But for all the speed that Ten- nessee possessed. State had one big adavan- tage and that was excellent work with the baton. In the finals of the 400-meter relay, se- cond man Glenn trailed Tennessee by three yards as he entered the exchange zone to pass to Howard. In what Jones called " one of the greatest handoffs I ' ve ever seen " Howard came out of the exchange zone with a three yard lead and handed off to McSwain with a two yard advantage. McSwain held off Gault and crossed the line with his index finger raised. The Pack had surprised the track world again with a make-shift relay team in winnning with a time of 40.29. The same foursome came back later in the day and waltzed to vic- troy in the 800-meter relay with a time of 1:21.38. McSwain would continue his hot runn- ing the next week at State breaking the school record in the 100-meter dash with a time of 10.18. The Penn Relays also saw another State competitor emerge as Mark Ryan threw 256-7 to qualify for the NCAA meet and break the school record. Another school record set was by Ladi Oluwole, 52-1 ' a Sports 169 170 Sports The women ' s team didn ' t fare as well in 1983. The women placed fourth in the con- ference, but did win three events. Senior Betty Springs won the 10,000-meter run with a time of 33:31.2, freshman Lynn Strauss copped the 4:25.42 and junior Senerchis Gray won the 100-meter dash with a time of 12.19. Springs and Strauss qualified for the NCAA meet in Houston, while senior Kim Sharpe (10,000- meter run) and freshman Connie Jo Robinson (5,000-meter run) also qualified. — Tom DeSchriver Sports 171 ACC Champions Men ' s Basketball: 8-6 ACC, 26-10 Overall Riflery: 2-O ACC, IO-6 Overall 172 Sports I Wrestling: 5-1 ACC, 13-3 Overall Track and Field Sports 173 Intramurals FRATERNITY CHAMPIONS 1982-1983 SPORT Football N ' olleyball Basketball " A " League Basketball " B " League One-on-One Basketball Softball Bowling Golf Track Table Tennis Handball Tennis Badminton Racquetball Cross Country Swimming CHAMPION Phi Kappa Tau Sigma Chi Kappa Sigma Pi Kappa Alpha Pi Kappa Alpha Farmhouse Theta Tau Sigma Chi Phi Kappa Tau Phi Kappa Tau Phi Kappa Tau Kappa Alpha Phi Kappa Tau Delta Sigma Sigma Chi Delta Sigma FRATERNITY FINAL STANDINGS 1982-1983 RANK ORGANIZATION 1.

The 6 foot, 4 inch man turned to his wife, and together they jogged off the field toward PuUen Park. When the new chancellor. Dr. Robert Bruce Poulton, and his wife, Betty reached their home, Poulton completed his workout by weightlifting. Dr. Poulton and Mrs. Poulton ha e been jogging every morning for the past 13 years. " Each of us is in training. If we stop, our body goes to pot, " he explained. Dr. Poulton came from the chancellor- ship of the Uni ersity of New Hampshire system on July 1 to succeed Joab Thomas as State ' s tenth chancellor. " State represented an opportunity to work in a unique area of the U.S. The Triangle area is a noble experiment with public and private institutions, " replied Poulton to a question of why he transferred to State. " I also have personal friends here, and I enjo - the climate and water, " Poulton quickly added. Poulton is the third chancellor with a scientific background to head State. Dur- ing his .se en-year appointment to the Unisersity of New Hampshire svstem, Poulton implemented comprehensi e plans for academic programs, de eloped a policy role for a single board of trustees and in- creased revenues in many areas. Also, Poulton was the first chancellor of the newly- developed university s stem which combined all public higher educa- tion in New Hampshire. As far as possible changes at State, " I Features, 227 ' Each of us is in training. If we stop, our body goes to pot. ' At several different University functions. Dr. Poulton instructs the Student Senate on his new policies (above) as Senate President Jeff Baker looks on, attends the official opening of the Weisiger-Brown General Athletics Facili- ty (right), and mingles with students at a wine and cheese party given by the Quad house council (far right). 228 Features didn ' t come here with any preconceived notions. I ' m in the learning stage, " he said. When asked if he beheved State should enact stricter enrollment standards, Poulton replied, " My personal concern is credentials, not grade point averages. We should set higher graduation requirements rather than stiffer admission requirements. " Interestingly enough, Poulton feels strongly about students having somewhat common educational backgrounds. " These 4,000 students that graduate in May should share similar educational ex- periences. " Continuing, Poulton stressed that " students need a general knowledge of the humanities, social sciences, developments in relationship to societ ' and other fairly broad fields. " " It may not help you to get your first job, but it ' ll give more meaning to life, " stated Poulton. In regard to the athletic department and the administration, Poulton feels he is the one responsible for both. " My respon- sibiltiy lies with all students. Athletes are students; they should make reasonable pro- gress toward a degree and play well on the field, " Poulton stressed. " Athletes are not getting reinforcement. Take the women ' s basketball record — almost 100 percent {of the players) have earned degrees. On the average for all students, it ' s usually 60 percent. I ' m the guy responsible. " Poulton feels that anyone can get through some program if they are suffi- ciently motivated. Poulton has been actively visiting with students. " It ' s important for me to get out of my office and meet people, " he stated. In November Dr. and Mrs. Poulton at- tended their first residence life event. The Quad on East Campus honored the couple at a wine and cheese party. " I think it ' s super that he ' s making the effort, " stated Garrison Browne, chancellor ' s aide and president of the Quad ' s house council. At one point during the interview Poulton referred to his wife as the " boss. " When asked if he was joking, he replied, " No, " and claimed it was a true statement. " It takes two to run this job. Bett - does a lot of reading for me and goes to alumni meetings with me. It ' s a way of life, not a job, " explained Poulton. He continued to explain that since his four children were now on their own, he and his wife could take on a job such as this one.

I wish that was all we had to do; if it was, we ' d have it made. But it ' s more technical than that, " said Ron Medlin, a senior in vocational education and an athletic trainer at State for the past four years. No doubt most spectators hardly give the trainers a se- cond thought. But, whether they know it or not, the trainers are the people who get the team ready for every game. " The athletic trainers are in charge of medical coverage and care of all athletic teams in the Athletic Department, " said Craig Sink, head athletic trainer. " This includes prevention, treatments and rehabilitation of injuries. There are 24-26 varsity sports and we ' re responsible for their medical coverage. We can ' t attend every practice for some sports, but we ' re responsible for a home attendance. " The training department is made up of Sink at the top, with two assistants, two graduate student assistants and 14 undergraduate assistants. In addition to a team physician, specialists or consultants in nearly every medical discipline are available should they be needed. During the fall, football is the dominant sport and re- quires the presence of many trainers, in part due to the size of the football program. " The main thing about football is the numbers, " Sink said. " You ' ve got a hundred-and-some athletes on one team as compared to other teams with only 16 athletes. Many of the trainers help with football because of the numbers involved, and the nature of the game, which is hitting, requires lots of treatments. " The day usually starts at 7 a.m. with treatments in the training room of the Weisiger-Brown General Athletics Facility. During the day are more treatments, doctors ' ap- pointments for athletes and, around 1 p.m., taping before practice. Most of the players ' and trainers ' classes are in the morning so that the afternoon is free for practice. " You get to know most of the players, " said trainer Beba Bower, a freshman in business management. " You get regulars. Each player has a different way he needs or wants to be taped, and he ' ll go to a certain trainer. Some players want to go only to the head trainer, and some don ' t care. " The training room seems to be boiling with activity dur- ing this time, but the trainers always remain cool. Head trainer Craig Sink (on crutches) and the Wolfpack sports medicine staff. Features 231 .. ' When people think of athletic trainers, most of them think of us running around the sidelines and taping ankles . . . I wish that was all we had to do. ' " It looks like mass confusion, " Sink said. " There ' s taping every ankle, heat packs, ice bags, whirlpool, wrapping fingers, ankles and knees. But the guys know what needs to be done. That ' s where our seniors come in — they ' re the fjeople with the ex- perience and responsibility. They provide good leadership. " After taping, the trainers load their equipment on a truck and transfer it to the practice field, where they try to duplicate the training room. Some trainers stay at the facility and some are sent to Reynolds Coliseum, where other teams are practic- ing. Unless an injury occurs, practice is generally uneventful, with the trainers breaking up to cover separate squads and making sure the players get water, juice or whatever they need. " There ' s hopefully not much to do after practice, " Sink said. " Of course, if we have an injured player, we ' ll give him treatments. The orthopedist also comes in after practice to check on players. " Time and preparation is also spent on a Saturday football game. " On Friday after- noon, we drive to the stadium and get stuff set up for the game, medical-wise, " Medlin said. " We make sure everything ' s in place and that we have everything we need. When we ' re finished we have to come back to attend to other sports practicing here. " " I shouldn ' t say the day of a game is easier but it ' s a little less hectic and more routine, " Sink said. " For a 1:00 game we ' ll have a 9:00 pre-game meeting and begin taping the players. " We go out to the stadium about an hour before everyone else to make sure things are in place. Some trainers are left at the athletic facility so that we can call thi ' iu if we need anything. At the stadium, we do special taping. The student trainers set up sidelines like we do at practice. Ob- viously, there ' s more help on a Saturday 232 Features because there are no class conflicts. " " If you go expecting to see a game, you ' ll he disappointed. Our job is to take care of these players on the field and attend to the injured. " On Sunday, the training room is again open in the morning for treatments. An or- thopedist comes in to look at X-rays, and prescribe and oversee treatments. " It ' s a seven-day job, " Sink said. " I guess the only disadvantage is that there aren ' t enough hours in the day. There ' s always a lot of stuff to do, " Sink stressed. " It ' s a routine but something ' s always added. You ' ve got to love it to do it. " I do garbage work, but it ' s OK because everybody else does it too. I feel my part is as important as anyone else ' s. Everybody works together. " Another part of the job includes going beyond physical treatments when treating an injured player. " It ' s very tough for players because I don ' t think they unders- tand that we know what it ' s like to be in- ured. The players don ' t think we ' ve been injured, " Sink said. " And, you know, injuries always occur at the wrong time. If you had an injury in the off-season everybody would be happy because you wouldn ' t be on the bench and lose any playing time. " So, one of the first things we do is reassure. Athletes today are very body con- scious, in the sense that they want to know what ' s wrong with them when they get in- jured. After an injury they have to know that we ' ll do everything we can. " The first thing they want to know is ' How long will I be out? ' But that ' s a hard question becaus e every person has a dif- ferent rate of recovery. So you keep their spirits up and keep them motivated. We tell them, ' You ' ve got to do what we ask and heal. ' Time ' s a great healer, and we try to help time out as much as we can. " The players understand this. They know we do a lot for them, and they ap- preciate this.

Like a pack of sardines, they scjueezed into even,- nook in the auditorium. A hush fell like a blanket as a tan-faced middle-aged pro- fessor strolled in. Expressions of relief pass- ed over many faces and the students clap- ped for their profes,sor. " He ' s a great teacher. He ' s enthusiastic and explaias concepts in simple terms, " stated a freshman in mechanical engineer- ing. " I try to inspire the students, to build their confidence. I ' ve never given a negative impression, " declared Dr. Forrest Hentz regarding his Chemistry 101 class. " 1 have heard other professors do just that. " The well-liked profe.ssor is often found at the librar - annex chatting with students over a cup of coffee. Hentz has been State 19 years, and most of that time has been spent teaching Chemistr - 101. " I ' m always asked, ' Why do I need to learn thi.s? ' It ' s not an ea.sy answer. Knowledge for knowledge ' s sake, I think, " stated Hentz, " But later, students come back and thank me. " Hentz graduated from Newberry Col- lege in South Carolina. His DcKtorate and Master ' s degrees were earned at the Universitv of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. Surprisingly, Hentz wasn ' t exposed to chemistry until his freshman year at Newbern. ' . " I was always better at English. " As part of his graduation requirements, Hentz took the equivalent of Chemistn.- 101, and like many, failed his first test. " All through high school I had done well. 1 was zapped. I thought to myself, ' An thing this frustrating must have something to it, ' " Hentz explained. He worked his grade up to a ' B ' and enrolled in his second chemistry class. " It was my biggest battle, so I can relate to (State ' s) Chemi.stry 101. " Hentz sym- pathsized. Prior to teaching at State, Hentz was a chemistn ' professor at Randolph-Macon, an all-women ' s college in N ' irginia. Hentz ' s three- ear stay wa.s positive. " It had high academic standards, but the girls weren ' t as interested in the technical and mathematical sciences.

Hentz spends very little time in the laboratory doing research like many professors at State, although he has had several articles publish- ed, including a collaboration with Dr. G.G. Long on the freshman chemistry lab notebook. 242 Features jors, " he explained. When Hentz joined State ' s faculty there were 8,500 students enrolled full-time. " It seemed so big then, " Hentz said. When he was asked why he enjoyed teaching the undergraduate classes, he replied, " I enjoy working in the tren- ches. If I were on a football team I guess I ' d be the offensive lineman. " Hentz was then asked if he would ever take an ad- ministrative position. His immediate reply was a flat-out ' No. ' " I couldn ' t sit behind a desk all day shuffling papers. I enjoy shooting the bull with the students too much. " He continued to say, " If I ever get to the point of walking into a classroom and not enjoying it, I will leave. " But Hentz doesn ' t ever think it will come to that. In addition to teaching, Hentz and co-worker Dr. G.G. Long wrote the Chemistry 101 lab textbook. Hentz has also had other articles published in various journals. Two years ago Hentz and Long presented the Faculty Senate with a proposal to change the drop date for freshmen from four to six weeks into the semester. Hentz feels the drop date should be lengthened for freshmen because " they aren ' t (yet) adapted to the University. " But Hentz feels strongly that the upperclassman drop date should remain intact. " Upperclassmen are supposedly wiser, " he replied with a chuckle. Most State students know of the high failure rate of the Chemistry 101 classes. When Hentz was asked about these statistics he declared that the failure rate " is not set. It ' s not intentional. In practice, it hap- pens that way. " " This year there has been an in- creasing amount of effort put into the general chemistry (curriculum). The Chemistry 101 classes have started off better, " Hentz said with enthusiasm. " It goes in cycles. 1978 was really poor. " Hentz attributes various reasons for this change in the passing rates of chemistry students: " Students are more scholarly than five years ago. " This, he claims, is manifested by today ' s pressures for technical careers and jobs. " Also, the math prerequisite is now enforced. Before, there were too many who were ill-prepared, " he added. " But the number-one problem is that there are 2,500 students in one course, " he stressed. Hentz feels State doesn ' t have enough facilities for its students. " Enrollment has almost tripled since I ' ve been here, and facilities haven ' t. " Outside the classroom Hentz can be seen jogging the streets of Cary. " It ' s a good incentive to try to quit smoking, " he laughed. For two years Hentz has been trying to do just that. In October, Hentz and two students ran together in the Raleigh " Run in the Park. " The 10,000-meter race was jogged slowly but steadily. Ask- ed if he could run further, he replied, " Twelve miles is the farthest I ' ve run. And that was non-stop. " Another hobby of Hentz is gardening. " Vegetable and flower gardening — it doesn ' t matter which, " expressed Hentz. On December 21 Hentz and his wife celebrated their 25th wed- ding anniversary. Celebrating this day with them were their five children ranging from high school age to college senior. " I couldn ' t sit behind a desk all day shuffling papers. I enjoy shooting the bull with the students too much. " I ♦ X iXmf Features 243 Students filled the floor and packed the aisles when Hentz held his review ses- sions for the dreaded chemistry tests. It ' s not hard to see why Dr. Hentz is so popular. He added a personal touch to an Impersonal course — which 3000 freshman struggle through each year. 244 Features In regard to State ' s policies, Hentz is a concerned professor. Hentz is against the policy of requiring 12 credit hours to remain in campus dormitories. " You can get creditable grades at 10 or 12 credits and only marginal grades at 16, " stressed Hentz. " I don ' t think employers look at the number of years (required to graduate) unless it ' s extreme. " Another policy Hentz doesn ' t agree upon is requiring freshmen to declare a major upon admission. " Students should explore a year or two. He should take a variety of courses and then decide, " proposed Hentz. However, he quickly took back his statement, saying, " But I realize that State is too big to allow freshmen to enter undeclared. " Hentz feels he has a good working relationship with the other faculty members. " Nothing destroys morale more in a course than faculty disagreements, " he stressed. During his 19 years at State, Hentz has worked under four department heads. " 1 have had good backing and leadership from both the Department and (the administration). " Would Hentz ever consider leaving State? " I ' ve seriously thought of it twice. But you can ' t go to a smaller school because you ' re trapped by the lesser salary. No, I wouldn ' t leave State, " Hentz concluded. Hentz was then asked if his enjoyment of teaching has changed since he started. His answer was a definite ' No. ' " But I believe 1 understand the typical student better. " He obviously tries to build a rapport with students. " I ' m good at names, and remember faces well. " The clock had ticked on for several hours. Wearih ' , the Chemistry 101 students in Dabney Hall collected their notes and rose from their cramped quarters. Hentz concluded his lecture and thanked his students, prompting the crowd to applaud the professor as he left the room. — Linda Snell Features 245 . • 9 y ' ji ji ■ n . 1 ' ' ; Fim J P r c JfT .-T- ., %:-A ' i ' ■ - .

The Sea Grant Program faces the challenging task of balancing the grow- I ing ' exploKatlon of coastal resources against environmental and 1 economic concerns. 246 Features For millions upon millions of years, man has both feared revered the almighty ocean. He has attempted to coexist with her " storms of annihilating force and reap the wealth of her waters. Yet for centuries man has also endeavored to gain a better understan- ding of the mysterious ocean. It is this quest for total comprehen- sion of earth ' s driving force that the University of North Carolina Sea Grant College Program is all about. Sea Grant is a_state-federal partnership that applies the exper- tise of the sixteen colleges in the UNC system towards marine and coastal problems. The program is designed to promote the wise use and development of the nation ' s coast and oceans through research, education and extension. A. great deal of the research and tests are conducted on the State campus, and the program headquarters is based in the 1911 Building. " In a sense. Sea Grant helps man help nature combat what man has created, " said Dr. B.J. Copeland, director of the program. " It is really two things. First, Sea Grant is to teach conservation usage, and second is how to efficientiy use the marine resources at hand. " Although it contributes its findings to other agencies within the Mid-Adantic legion, Sea Grant concentrates on problems especially associated with the North Carolina coast. " We work basically on a one-to-one basis, " Dr. Copeland said. " We have ex- tension services along the coast to aid the people as best we can. " Residents of the state can obtain publications and advice,, tend workshops and demonstrations, and visit the many offi ' cS located along the coast. These include three Marine Resource Centers, the NCSU Seafood Laboratory in Morehead City, the Aquaculture Demonstration Center in Aurora and the extension offices in Manteo, Bogue Banks and Fort Fisher. The people who work in the Sea Grant Program pride themselves in helping those who make their living from the sea. By informing the fishermen of new methods of netting or new ad- vances in crab pot technology, for instance. Sea Grant has made- bigger catches possible for the fisherman, strengthening the local economy. But assimilating that information into the fishing industry is not always easy. " These people don ' t take kindly to government folks sticking their noses in their business, " said Wayne Wescott, head of the Manteo office. " These folks are right set in their ways and are not usually easy to change. You don ' t walk in on them, grab them by the hand and say, ' Here, do it this this way because Uncle Sam says it ' s better. ' You have to develop a trust between you and that person. They ' ll listen a lot quicker to a friend than to a federal man in a tie. " One of the areas of research which Sea Graot scientists hope will promote wiser use of marine resources among fishermen is aquaculture, or fish-farming. The arguments foft it are convinc- Feature8 247 ' U l , A.- , Planting of marshgrass along erosion-prone shorelines (left) is being touted as easier and cheaper that con- it trxiCi - ' -lA ■ ■■ struction of concrete walls. Protective vetegation shrouds the same scene five months later (right). ing: increased productivity of aquatic fish and plant.s, and less dependence on wild stocks, which are increasingly endangered. Yet finding an economically feasible species to culture can be challenging. A state- run eel processing plant was recently sold for scrap when world eel supplies became glutted. Howard Kirby and Marvin Huish of State ' s ZoologN ' Depart- ment developed a hybrid striped bass that could be raised by aquaculturali-sts. The striped bass is a valuable sport fish as well as a desirable commercial species, but its populations have been declining in recent ears. Although the ild striper fared poorly under culture, the hybrids took to water tanks and appear to be doing well. Other likely species range from blue crabs to coho salmon. Sea Grant reaches into the domain of health safety standards for fish and shellfish. Mark Sobse , a marine pathologist at UNC — Chap)el Hill, cracked the shell on a mystery that had sent fear along the coast. Sobsey ' s lab was called on to examine shellfish from an oyster roast which were known to have caused an out- break of disease affecting 150 people. Surprisingh, the infected shellfish had come from " approved ' waters and met current stan- dards. He suspected a flaw in the state testing methods. As it turn- ed out. the tests did not detect the viruses which caused these out- breaks, so Sobsey designed a more accurate one. Fortunately for the state shellfish industry, Sobsey found that these findings did not necessarily spell doom. Now that the con- taminants can be detected and identified, Sobsey and others can track them to their sources. Another reason is that o sters have been found to cleanse themselves within a matter of days if placed in clean water. A depuration plant, which will handle large amounts of contaminated oysters and clams under controlled temperature and salinity conditions, is being set up on a pilot scale under Sobsey ' s direction. While on the subject of food. Sea Grant has one of the largest test kitchens in the country . The Seafood Laboratory tests .seafood for tastes and new recipes. State scientists are transforming once- wasted species of fish into nutritious new products. One such pro- duct is pressed shrimp, derived from small fish which at one time were used for bait and cat food. In a taste test performed with State students, the tasters could find no great difference between the real or pres,sed shrimp, even at times preferring the artificial because it did not have the veins or fishy odor. With these never before used seafoods man could feed four times as many people at half t he cost. Anyone who has lived at the beach has undoubtedK en- countered some of the afflictions of that area, even if they are not aware of the issues behind them. Your real estate, solid back home, moved about on the whim of wind and sea. Your exf)ensive off-road vehicle wasn ' t always welcome on the dunes. Ground- water was so contaminated that drinking water had to be piped from inland. And winter storms threatened to take a bite out of important access bridges. Sea Grant researchers found that understanding shoreline ero- sion is largely a matter of understanding the movement of wind and water. Unfortunately, the complex interplay of storm waves, storm surge and sediment deposition has not yielded the modeling scheme that is necessary for effective civil engineering design. John Fisher, Margery Overton and Spencer Rogers are collecting erosion records from a number of barrier- island storms and using these to determine the validity of present long-term erosion for- mulas. This will help builders of shoref ront structures to better an- ticipate changing site conditions. Houses already located on the beach may be in for some pro- blems. Jerry Machemehl, a former professor at State, compared the strength of 1954 hurricane Hazel against beach houses built according to modern building codes. His results were ominous: the situation was roughly eguivalent to a breath against a house of cards. Machemehl ' s work is reflected is the recent state building codes, where often minor structural requirements have improved sur i abilit . " You can ' t build anything that can sur ive a two- hundred year storm, " he said, " but you can build a structure that will survive many of the forces found along the coast in lesser storms. " Sea Grant research into sewage disposal in coastal areas has created something of an underground revolution in the Southeast U.S. Research b Bobby Carlile led to the development of two alternative septic tank systems that work under difficult condi- tions and are now used in communities as far a a as Texas. The designs perform so well that, with increased u.se, some shellfish aters which ere closed because of contamination from sewage outfalls may be reopened. Coastal dwellers eventually encounter the program through its agents. The most frequent request asked of Bob Hines is for infor- mation on recreational fishing. But not all o{ Hines ' requests come from the coast or e en the state. A New York City ad agenc - wanted to know how many fish there are in the sea. Sea Grant agents and educators seem to derive job satisfaction because they push facts, not paper. These have been mere brief glimpses into the world of Sea Grant. — Roger W.

The onuoinii project is led by a State history profes,sor and funded priiicipalK by the National Endowment for the Humanities, hnestigation centers on the sites of several frontier forts which formed a protective cordon against incursioas of nomadic Arab tribes from the east. Initial work revealed that a major strengthening of the frontier network occurred around 300 A.D., with the number of forts doubling. Evidence was found that most of the forts were abandoned two centuries later. The Central Limes Arabicus Project, this regional research effort of the Roman fortified frontier, seeks to answer two principal historical (luestions: • What can explain the dramatic military buildu|) in the central sector of the Arabian frorltier around .3(X) A.D.? • What can account for the apparent abandonment of most of these fortifications about two centuries later? To gain some insight into the.se i.ssues. Dr. S. Thomas Parker organized the project around fi e field campaigns from 1980 through 1989 invoking a staff of 12 archcologists. 18 students and 50 local workmen during the eight-week .season. State students who participated in the 1982 campaign were Michael Brasche. Kim Bryant. ' ictoria Godw in. Nelson Harris. Eric Greene (senior staff), Bradlex ' Hunter. John Lampe and Tom McCimsey.

They ro.se five mornings a wt-ek at 4:00 a.m. to take ad antage of the cool morning air and .stopped work at 1:00 p.m. Afternoons were spent in non-ph sical tasks such as identification and cataloguing of artifacts.

Six credits in a 400-level history course were allowed the students for their work, but they were re- (juired to cover their air fare from the U.S. and a room-and- board allow ance. The latest trip, in the summer of 1982, entailed a full-scale excavation of the Roman legionary fortress at el-Lejjun, con- 250 Features A State-sponsored archeological team has uncovered a 1500-year-old Roman fortres s on the edge of the Lebanese desert.

In 1980 the strata of the soil at the el-Lejjun site wa.s found to date from approximately 63 B.C. to modern times. Although the fort suffered obvious weathering over the cen- turies, it is surprisingh ' well preserved beneath the wind- deposited soil. Housing 1500 Roman troops, it covered an area of 11 acres and measured about 800 b ' 625 feet. The protective wall is almo.st eight feet thick and is studded with projecting towers. One gate is located in each of the four walls. The basic design. Parker said, is similar to hundreds of Roman fortresses constructed from Britain to the Middle Ea.st. Excavation of the el-Lejjun fortress took place in three areas: the head()uarters building (principia) . a barracks block and part of the fortifications. The principia hou.sed administrative offices and a legionary shrine {acdcs) for religious ceremonies. At the time of the outpost ' s establishment the official religion was still paganism, but by the 400s Chri.stianitj had become the officially-sanctioned belief in the region. The influence of the surrounding villages in this respect w as profound and lasting. The barracks yielded some of the most valuable cultural in- formation, such as furnishings, diet, daily activities and historical events. Parker ' s staff found seeds and bones to in- 252 Features ■ " tf jr t lft» « iT " " - " ' - i%. dicate the probable diet of the men. Within a centurion ' s quarters pottery was found in good condition. Evidence of the occurrence of the 363 earthquake was found with the discovery of earUer barrack foundations. Dramatic indica- tions of the devastating earthquake of 500 were shown with the discovery of fallen walls found fully intact and the skeleton of a young male with all the ribs and pelvis on one side of his body crushed. Excavation of the fortifications centered on a corner tower and an interval tower further along the wall. The corner tower was massive, measuring 53 feet in diameter and three stories tall; the U-shaped interval tower measured 35 by 30 feet and was originally two stories tall before the top story collapsed. Work on the towers is incomplete and will con- tinue during the 1984 and 1986 seasons. Adjacent to the fortress grew an extensive civilian settle- ment (uiciw), typical of Roman military establishments. It supplied the garrison with various services and housed mer- chants, discharged veterans and families of soldiers. Only soundings have been conducted so far, but the site promises to yield a rich source of pottery and coins. Also nearby is a complex system of dams and watermills, but the relationship between this and the fortress had not been determined. A fruitless search was made in the valley with a metal detector for the ancient cemetery associated with the fortress. During the 1982 sea.son an experiment involving the net- work of Roman watchtowers in the region was conducted. The purpose of the exercise was to test the feasibility of transmitting intelligence from outlying posts to the major troop concentration at el-Lejjun and vice versa. Ry day, signaling was attempted by smoke and reflected sunlight from mirrors; by night, torches were waved in a predeter- mined pattern. Winds played havoc with the smoke signals and the use of reflected light was limited to about three miles. However, the signaling at night by torches, Parker found, proved to be effective up to six miles. So this network could have been used to convey routine messages and reports on the approximate strength of an enemy incursion. As for the sudden buildup and subsequent abandonment of the fortresses, these seem to be responses to the changing political climate. Increasing pressure from nomadic Arab tribes prompted the construction of new forts, substantial troop reinforcements, reoccupation of a previously existing observation system and thorough repair of the local road system in this sector. Contemporary accounts suggest that the nomadic threat was successfully controlled for the next two centuries. Abandonment came as a result of pressing problems in other parts of the empire. The Emperor Justinian (527-565) was engaged by continuing wars with the Persians, serious pressure on the Danube, the attempted reconquest of Western Europe and a massive program of public works. Parker believes that the change in strategic policy away from the Arabian frontier, while economical in the short run, proved devastating for the Roman Empire. The Muslim conquest of the region in the early 600s heralded a new era in Western history. A new sense of urgency has been added to the Central Limes Arabicus Project with the discovery of rich oil shale deposits in the vicinity of el-Lejjun. Parker ' s team is working with the Jordanian Department of Antiquities to preser e as many of the Roman sites as possible before they are threaten- ed by stripmining. The historical mysteries of the Romans will continue to be painstakingly unraveled by Parker and his NCSU-sponsored team. — William J.

What started out as a habitual housing gathering place for in- ternational students became in 1976 an officialK sanctioned and supported program of the University. 14.5 foreign students and an equal number of Americans call this haven of international adven- ture their home. People are happier here, close by virtue of their unbridgable distance from one another. The place jiulsates with the exotic and is free from conformity to a large degree. Experimentation is ram- pant, at least for Americans. The entrenched conservatism of other cultures is soft-focused here, but always present. The happenings of Alexander inevitably include the bars of language difficult) — names, for instance. Ho ' A- do pronounce " Ng " ? Many students do a cjuick-change before coming to the states, although dorm polic - encourages using the original. Chinese student Eric Lee refused to gi e his real name to spare the reporter the loss of face for mispronunciation. A Taiwanese stu- dent took Kent from a pack of cigarettes. One Vietnamese student ' s name is Noyes, from the words no and yes. What to say next is right up there w ith w hat to eat next. The pungent spices in some cultures can be deadly to life in others. Residents talk a lot about compromise and understanding n idel divergent tastes. Ea.st Indians go for volcanic spic-es. Beware. Suspect a con.spiracy before taking the plate. Keep the American occupied while we ladle on the hot sauce and pepjwrs. Steve Martins joke about the French, " They ha e a different word for everything, " gets wildly magnified here in AlcNander In- ternational. However, people soon emerge from their cultures as indisiduals, and our species universality becomes ery real, with people li ing closer than the staggering but sui-)erficial barrier of 254 Features diverging cultures might suggest. Even with people collapsed on their bunks in vain evasion of the steaming Raleigh heat and prickly with loads of school, most doors are always open in invitation to visitors and open talk. Humor, wit and laughter punctuate Alexander life. The first two people found on the ground floor presented a wealth of contrasts — country, city; Indian, Chinese; bearded, clean-shaven; informal, very neat. Madan Patel and Chi-kai Lo share a room. " In India, when they know you ' re going to America, " Madan begun, " people look at you like you ' re going to heaven, like you ' re going to play the ACC championship in two weeks. " Without English, at first it was really fun. They would say ' Hi. ' It means that somebody has died in our language. Usually it ' s sad to say hi. After two days I figured out why they smiled, and I said ' Hi ' back, " Madan explained. " TV helped me a lot to pick up American culture and language . . . They ' d say ' Good Morning America; ' I ' d say ' Good Morning America. " " Madan ' s roomie Chi-kai Lo is athletic, elegant and mellower. " I used to read Time and Newsweek back home. " " We used prac- tically all English textbooks all through college. Society is open. There are a lot of Westerners. " I ' ve gotten used to American food, " he smiled. " I ' m getting us- ed to pizza. In China you fry vegetables. " Being from the city. Chi-kai thought that " Raleigh seems really country to me. North Carolina in an ideal place for people who are retired. " Upstairs, third floor resident advisor Kathy Lyne and resident Skip Lanoza had just collapsed for a rest after bicycling to Lake Wheeler and back. Covered with sweat, they talked about taking charge of newcomers to the States. " I just introduce myself, " Skip explained. " You have to meet them on their own terms. With a new guy from Mexico, we drag- ged him off and showed him Brothers and Two Guys. You can get a lot of informal discussions going and eat. " Never take a new foreigner to a fanc - restaurant.

" So wrote Hilal Abdullah Al-Saadi, dressed in traditional Arabic clothes in the Saudi style (far right) and American style (right). One must be very careful what one eats in Alexander; Johnny Noyes (above) said the best idea is to cook your own. Japanese and Latinos traditionally signify a (iood meal by belchinR. " Skip engineered the first annual dorm belchinK contest this vear, with categories for longest, deepest and loudest. An American won with an OKnipiaii Lt seconds " after eatinu had spanhetti and pAerclear. " People from the same country are discouraged from living together so mi.ving will be easier. As there are cultural differences between nationalities, so there are between the sexes in what they study: " Girls study everythini;. Ciuvs. engineering. " Ski|i said. Dancing at Alexander happens to ha e many languages as .■ . Kathy says the test dancers are the p:uropeans and Latinos. " Viet- namese really love to cha-cha, " Skip related. " Americans dance with their bodies. Orientals with their hands. Latinos with their feet and Kuropeans b shaking their rears. " Kath added. As for the spoken languages, they suggest attacking the problem with humor. " A fellow from St. Vincent, near Bermuda, said he .spoke a kind of French: broken English and profanity, " Skip laughid. " The Indians are the most difficult. They dip their words, " he explainetl. " I asked a Taiwanese if he was from Korea, " Kathy painfully recalled. She endured the elaborate rage of a very offended Asian for a long, long time. " One of my nightmares is to ask a Red (Chinese if he is from Taiwan. " Kath shuddered. " When I think of a country, " she continued, " I think of the peo- ple. When ()u talk about a country you ' re talking about a place where a lot of people live. The country is not the government, it ' s the people. If an thing happens on a national scale, it ' s the |H ' ople who lia e to pa tlu ' price. " After a recent Italian earth(iuake. Kathy read a letter from the parents of an Italian girl in the dorm. " When you read a letter from someone w ho ' s tr ing to surv i e, it ' s a lot harder to disconni-et yourself. " " I feel so inferior, " Skip said. " These |H ' o|ile have si en so much. They ' se been all over the world. These pi ' ople have seen hell, and they ' ve also see-n heaven. " Jenny Oliver, Alexander head resident, lived amid anti(|ues and rockers in a little homey dorm apartment near the front door. She 256 Features supervised the half-dozen resident staff members and initiated the " structured programs and activities " to facilitate " cross cultural understanding. " The resident advisors have to be more responsive to little clues and interpret what they really mean. " Probably one of my biggest fears is those people I call the silent sufferers, who don ' t feel its ethical or correct or right to confront the staff that ' s something ' s wrong, " Jenny said. Awareness and constant reiteration that it ' s ok and correct to be assertive helps foreigners create skills necessary for the American experience. It ' s just as important not to forget the American student and what he or she is experiencing. This residence hall is not just for foreign students. It ' s for better understanding of each other, she iasisted. Down the long Alexander hallway near the first floor mailboxes several Koreans play some intricate type of chess on a playing board they constructed by sketching out the lines atop a cardboard box. Bobby Pham, smiling and muscular, began to tell about his ex- periences getting to college. " Since I came to the U.S. at 11 years, I didn ' t have a lot of exposure to my own culture from my own people. Ultimately I learned about my own culture from living here. " Living in the country ten miles from Saigon, Bobby and his family squeaked out during the fall of the city in 1975. " When we came over here, all we had was the clothes on our backs and a sack. " After a stay in an Arkansas refugee camp, they managed to get ' adopted ' in California. " The most difficult but the most enjoyable part was learning the language. I enjoyed being around kids my age even if they were a different color. " American kids, Bobby said, have freedom without .self-control. " In my culture, we ' re controlled by our parents until we ' re 18 or 21 years old. I was luck -. The first girl I dated was not American.

The contrasts between cultures are very evident in Alexander. Mukul Sharma of India wore his summer clothing — a sharp contrast to Levi ' s and a tee- shirt. Interaction between cultures is encouraged and really unavoidable.

" This is a place where you make some friends you keep. It ' s a family environment. " Jennifer Quick became intrigued with Alexander life at a party. She met a girl who described the place, and she couldn ' t resist. " I had never really met people from another country, " she said. Born and raised in Car , Jennifer was shy that first sear until a gregarious Hawaiian girl moved in across the hall. " It ' s ea.sier to see the Americans come out of the shell, with an awareness the world doesn ' t revolve around North Carolina. " Her first roommate was from Thailand and kept the room jungle hot and stifling until Jennifer countered by oiiening the windows in mid-winter. Thai dinners, she said, are coated in a clear, firery liquid sauce. Her limit is .still one drop per plate. For Jennifer, the foreign students create " an awareness of our own culture. By learning about their culture, you learn about your own. " Alexander has also made her very aware of the stereotyping other people do. Going for groceries with a bunch of girls from every continent is an event garnering stares and astonishment from all sides. Named for the ' crescent moon, ' Hilal Saadi hails from Saudi Arabia. Once here, " at first I was very different. Rowdier. I most- ly knew America through the movies, mainly the crazy ones. I thought all America, especially college, was like that. " Hilal managed to test life at other dorms on campus. " I once liv- ed in Syine. I got to know mav be one guy there. In this dorm vou can live both lives, rowdy and studious. That dorm was nothing like Alexander. Back in Alexander International Dorm, Hilal enjoyed " the variety of social exposure here. I got to know the Vietnamese, the Chinese, the Japanese. I learned about the Africans. If I go somewhere, I will imderstand what I saw here.

There is a photograph of a girl from Belgium getting off the plane, looking punk in knickers and pink socks. A major diplomatic instrument is clogged drains, John explain- ed. Joined between two rooms, " drains clog with food. They come to me; I say go meet your neighbor. Using a plunger makes water and clogged food fly out the other side ' s sink, " so cooperation is essential. The Alexander uniqueness became vividly apparent at the last dorm dinner during the spring. " Almost everyone came, " John said. Jenny arranged to get a variety of eight people to talk about the program for two minutes. " We stayed about an hour, " he said. " Over twice that many stood up. You could .see tears in thf ' .r eye.s as they were talking. " The message was simple; " Please make that extra effort to meet vour neighbor next door. ' This universal touch, ' in ju.st sharing.

J ' • • ' ' By 3 p.m. on Friday afternoons State students were eager to stash their books away, grab a couple of friends and head to the bars of Raleigh. A typical Friday might have begun at Crazy Zack ' s happy hour. As a renovated warehouse, Zack ' s was touted as the lar- gest bar on the East Coast. But it was probably more famous for its beach music and happy hour bucket beer. " I come here for the atmosphere and beach music, " said junior Amy Edkins. " Definitely for the cheap beer — to giUzle it, " offered Mike Tedder. 260 Features State students tended to move in mysterious ways when the sun went down on Friday afternoons. I 1any students ended up in some kind of bar or nightclub just to hang around, drink beer, or to meet a member of the opposite Features 261 fs- " I come to meet guys and dzmce, " re- plied Beth Cashwell. An observer got the impression that Zack ' s was a great place to be with friends and meet others. The majority of women from Peace, Meredith and St. Mary ' s said they came to Zack ' s to meet guys and to dance. And meet them they did! " I come to meet girls from St. Mary ' s, " said State student Andy Holt. For the non-shagger Zack ' s had a small separate room which featured top-40 mu- sic. Much of the crowd packed into this room to mingle and drink. By 7 p.m., when happy hour ended, hardy State bar-goers were prepared for a new atmosphere. Some would go home to recuperate for a couple of hours and others would mellow out at Mitch ' s Tav- ern, located on Hillsborough Street. From the time you climbed the steep staircase to when you ordered a pitcher and settleed in a booth, the atmosphere began to soothe you. Usually State students filed into Mitch ' s in the early evenings after Chem- istry or Physics tests. By 9 p.m. it was often difficult to find an empty table. " It ' s a great place to come with friends. It ' s one of the few places where you can sit doum and have a couple of drinks, " said sophomore David Daniels. " I like the comradery over here. You can be yourself and guys won ' t pick you •up, " explained Lynn Patton. " It ' s like your favorite pair of jeans you can always be comfortable in them, like you ' re al- ways comfortable here. " Often by 9 p.m. the State student was ready for a rowdier crowd and the newly opened Harpo ' s seemed to fit the bill. Harpo ' s, ' the up-graded Ed ' s Grocery, ' was a two-level bar that played top-40 music and offered fairly inexpensive beers. As a result of its popularity, long lines sometimes exceeding 45 minutes formed outside the back door. 262 Features (Clockwise from far right) Mitch ' s Tavern was always the place to go to just sit and eat, unless of course you decided to go to Crazy Zack ' s happy hour where you might have danced with a Meredith girl or St ate guy (depending on your preference). After tipping the bartender, maybe you headed east toward Barry ' s and loud music, where you may have been able to hear ' What did you say your name was? ' On that note you were wise to trek up the street to Mitch ' s to get better acquainted. I I ' lItntLUD .-i " It ' s a lot of fun. But now the lines are getting to be too long, " said a Peace College student. " I usually come here four times a week. They have good beer deals, " stat- ed sophomore John Jordan. While taking to the bartenders it was discovered many of them feel that Har- po ' s is a step-up from Ed ' s. " There ' s an older crowd here than at Ed ' s. We have a dress code that we didn ' t have at Ed ' s. " In reference to the ' meat market ' label that Harpo ' s has been given one bartend- er said, " Call It what you want. " And yet another bartender stated, " It ' s not as bad as Ed ' s. " By the time the State student leaves Harpo ' s on a Friday night he was often ready for something to eat. Whether it was to curb that last-minute drink urge or to relax and enjoy an early breakfast, the Breakfast House was a popular establishment frequented by stu- dents. " I like coming here after a great even- ing to eat and talk with friends, " said Beth Joseph. Often on weekend mornings students walk over to the Breakfast House and enjoy a hearty breakfast. " We come over over here on Sundays after service. It has great food and I like the atmosphere, " explained Lisa Kauffman. Upon filling up at the Breakfast House the State student was ready to go home and curl up. He or she was usuall wise to take two aspirin and drink at least a whole glass of water before going to bed to prevent any morning hangover. After a day of reluctant studying the State student was ready to face the Ra- leigh nightlife again on Saturday. Many other bars, taverns and eating establish- ments surround State ' s campus. In addi- tion to their proximity, each has its own unique atmosphere. But blended togeth- er they serve the varied needs and tastes of State ' s population. — Linda Snell Features 263 264 Features In his years on the Student Senate and as this year ' s Student Body President Jim Yociim has demonstrated his efficiency and dependability often enough. Scattered about the room were newspapers, tex- tbooks, memos and papers waiting to be signed. Sitting behind the desk, the student pulled each senate bill from the top of the inch-deep stack, signed it and quickh ' proceeded to the next one. A few moments later the secretary came in with more to be scribbled upon. Those who have worked with the occupant of the of- fice know the disarrayed room doesn ' t tell the truth about him. In his years on the Student Senate and as this year ' s Student Body President, Jim Yocum has demonstrated his efficiency and dependability often enough. Recently Yocum was once again voted Student Body President for the 1983-84 academic year. " I ac- complished my goals last year, and I feel I can do it again, " said Yocum regarding his reelection. " I just have to keep track of my own limitations. " This past year Yocum was the first State student to be president of the UNC Association of Student Govern- ments, in which over 16 colleges are represented. In this position Yocum handles such tasks as inter-school budgeting, legislation and financial aid. During the last ten years representatives from UNC — Chapel Hill have usually held the position. In addition to his position in Student Government Yocum holds a seat on the Union Activities Board ' s Film Committee. " I enjoy choosing the cartoons and films to be viewed during the year. " Yocum is pursuing a dual degree in English and Mechanical Engineering. When asked why he was working toward such vastly different majors, Yocum replied sarcastically, " I want to be an engineer that can write. " " I ' ll never run for a political office, " replied Yocum to a question concerning pursuing a political career. " If I do it means I ' ve been a failure at ME (Mechanical Engineering). " The quiet-mannered senior is the son of a militarv ' man, and consequently Yocum has done extensive traveling. Included in his travels are the entire United States excluding Alaska, several European countries, Korea, the Philippines and Vietnam, He has also visited Japan, where his mother was born. Asked if he felt he missed anything by moving so often in the military, Yocum said no. " Militar ' schools are built for moves. " In fact, Yocum feels that the military opened his eyes to a lot of what happens in the world. " Children of military parents are more news aware because ou needed to know. You were always exposed to danger- riots, air raids and riots, but you got used to it. " Looking at Jim Yocum in his office, one would suspect him to be a fairly mild-mannered college student. One would be cor- rect in that assumption, but ask him about those bombs that he makes in his living room, and you might begin to wonder. In his free time Yocum bikes and listens to music. " A cousin of a friend got me interested in biking. A few- years ago we hiked from New Bern to Detroit. " " He ' s a neutral type guy. No one is actually opposed to him. He ' s relatively quiet except when he ' s with his friends. Then he ' s very open, " commented a classmate and friend of Yocum. Upon graduation Yocum hopes to go to graduate school in Mechanical Engineering or Law.

They resided on the west side of Raleigh at a place called North Carolina State University, or State for short. Now these people had maintained this community for four score and a few more years. During that time they had acquired a great love for a game that was played during the wintertime. The State people took great pride in their abili- ty to play this game called basketball — or hoops by some of its most avid followers. The Wolfpack had accumulated one National Champion- ship a few years before and yearned for another, although the years had been lean for almost a decade. After hiring a new leader for their hoop squad, the people of State took a new fervor in the way they supported their hoop team. Although the first year was mediocre at best, the Wolfpack was satisfied. Then when in the second year the team got to attend the NCAA Tournament, the natives grew even more excited. This new leader. Coach Jim Valvano (some called him King Quipper), attracted wide attention with his quick wit and his humorous and easygoing approach to basketball. He soon became loved by most of the people of State and people flocked to Reynolds Coliseum, the home arena, to see the Wolfpack play. In the third year of King Quipper ' s reign at State, the hoopsters all grew excited with the possibilities of a national contender. The powers that be in the national basketball polls saw fit to recognize the Wolfpack as being at least as good as the 17th best team in the pre-season polls. As the team bolted to a 7-1 start the possibilities grew endless. The fact that the Pack would have to wage battle on some fierce territory throughout the season had few of the Kingdom ' s subjects worried. The Pack rolled along and appeared to be getting its forces aligned for many consecutive massacres, when tragedy struck the team of roundballers. As the Pack faced one of its stiffest conference foes. State ' s main long-range weapon fell victim to the blow of a Cavalier. Dereck Whit- tenburg, who had led the troops in long-range hits (three- point goals) was felled with a broken foot. Shock rocked the Kingdom. Many of the scribes throughout the territory, with the stroke of a pen, wrote of the Wolfpack ' s demise. Sure enough, the Pack fell into a slump and much of the Kingdom was losing confidence in their heralded hoopsters. Had it not been for surprise efforts by some of the war- riors, indeed the doom of State might once again have disappointed the Kingdom. However, as fate might have it. King Quipper had brought in a young soldier by the name of Ernie Myers. ' E ' helped the Pack through these trying times with the help of another young lad in his second year. Terry Gannon, often called ' the Cannon " by the community added back that long-range threat that ' Whit ' had possess- ed. Meanwhile the determination of the other two veterans on the squad was an integral and key part of the revitaliza- tion of the team. Thurl Bailey { ' T) and Sidney Lowe ( ' Prime Minister of Assists ' ) each were enjoying their best campaigns. Still the Pack had yet to upset any opponent during the campaign. The days of the season grew late and while some talked of being satisfied with an National Invitational Tour- nament bid the Pack ' s rival foe in Chapel Hill was rolling right along. News of an accelerated recovery by ' Whit ' sparked hopes throughout the Kingdom, however, when the Tar Heels moved into Raleigh for their second attack of the year, ' Whit ' wasn ' t ready yet.

Some of the Kingdom left for Spring Vacation, but those that stayed behind got to see the Pack ' s most devastating victory in years. The Wolfpack pummeled the neighboring Demon Deacs by a 130-89 .score. The Pack would never fall again during this fine sea.son. The Kingdom readied for the annual conference clash. Always a .social event for tho.se lucky enough to secure seats, this year there was no question. The champioaship game would be between the Tar Heels and the Cavaliers. The other teams would just be there for the festivities. All the teams invaded Atlanta just as the March winds had started to blow.

Everyone knew the Demon Deacs would not be in any mood to take another licking as thev had a week earlier in Raliegh. Some smelled an upset and for awhile that odor was somewhat detectable.

Wake was able to do just that, hold the ball, until v ith 30 seconds left Lowe deflected a pa.ss and called timeout with 10 seconds left. Lowe then directed a pass into his power teammate on the inside, Lorenzo Charles. ' Lorilla, ' as Valvano had named hirt, drew the foul and went to the charity stripe to shoot two. He missed the first but came back to shake off the pressure and hit the second, earning the Pack a 71-70 win. " If any good came out of the injury to Dereck Whittenburg, it was the emergence of Lorenzo Charles, " Valvano said after the game. Had the Pack lost this battle it would .surely have been the end of the NCAA road for them, however, as it turned out. Wake accepted the NIT bid.

However, in State ' s climb to the national basketball title, there was a certain mean- ing to the imaginary term, ' freethrow defense ' . You see, it seemed that every time the Pack fell behind in a post-season game, other teams started missing their foul shots when State had some catching-up to do. It wasn ' t that Cozell McQueen or Lorenzo Charles or Thjirl Bailey were standing at the end of the lane and making faces at the shooter or reaching out with an invisible arm to swat the ball away from the basket. Actually in basketball terms its generally known as choking. State head coach Jim Valvano had a philosophy about come-from-behind ball (he was highly experienced in that type of game after the tournament). His theory was to foul the other team repeatedly as the second half wound down. If they hit the shots, then they widened the margin if his team didn ' t match baskets. If they miss- ed the shots, his team could win the game if they hit on their end. To this he had another gameplan. Find the man that couldn ' t hit the shot. Valvano would say, " We foul one guy and if he knocks them in we say, ' no not you, ' then the next time down we foul a different guy. If he knocks them in, then, we try another guy. Then if we find a guy that misses we say, " Ah hah. You better watch out. ' Then we foul him as long as he misses. " It wasn ' t necessarily a poor percentage shooter that always choked either. Take in the ACC Tournament, for instance. North Carolina ' s Jimmy Braddock, a near 90-percent shooter missed his shot, and in the West Regional Finals against Virginia, Othell Wilson was the man that missed the biggie. Hitting freethrows late in the game is something a championship team must do. The Wolfpack managed to connect on most of theirs, but their opponents had a hard time at it. Pepperdine and Nevada- Las Vegas both blew big leads by not con- necting and Virginia and Houston both missed crucial foul shots in the waning moments. Pepperdine had a six-point over- time lead while the Runnin ' Rebels led by 12 with 10 minutes to go. On the other hand, Lorenzo Charles twice in post-season play plugged the hoop from the charity stripe to give State its win- ning points. No, there is no such thing as a defense against free throws. You can ' t do anything but watch and hope the ball doesn ' t drop. But a little choking by the opponent never hurt anybody ' s championship bid. The Wolfpack ' s was no different. — William Terry Kelley Raleigh and the nation saw the Cardiac Kids ' trelt toward stardom on regional and coast-to-coast television, reproductions courtesy CBS Sports and Jefferson Produc- tions. Features 275 Campus damages considered minimal When a mass of humanity gets together, damages are expected, but when that crowd is a bunch of drunk, happy, celebrating Wolfpack fans one would think that the entire town of Raleigh might burn. But surprisingly, Raleigh survived the Wolfpack ' s run to the NCAA Cham- pionship. The final damage figure for the post- game parties amounted to $25,000 to State property, according to Lt. Terry Abney of Public Services. That figure is only for damages that occurred on campus. A figure for the stores along Hillsborough Street would be considerably lower because the post-game celebrations were moved from Hillsborough Street to the brickyard after the Nevada- Las Vegas game, but returned to Hillsborough Street after the championship game when the brickyard couldn ' t hold all of the crazed students. Hillsborough Street did suffer its damages, though. Before the celebrations were moved, each victory party had a bon- fire which did damage to the streets, and two local businesses had their doo broken. For the size and circumstances of the parties, D.R. Lane of the Raleigh Police Department said that the crowd was rather well-behaved and that most of the arrests that occurred were of non-students. Lane said that on the average 15-20 arrests were made each celebration with the ma- jority being property damage or drunk and disorderly conduct. Non-students were the major concern of both the fKjlice department and State of- ficials. In an attempt to alleviate damage to Hillsborough Street and keep non- students from destroying property, the celebrations were moved to the brickyard with the support of State officials and law enforcement officials. The plan worked perfectly. Students flocked to the brickyard after each win where an already lit bonfire awaited them. With the winning of the national cham- pionship, the brickyard became a place of national fame. Tee-shirts reigned that said " 1 was on the brickyard, April 4th 1983. " Hillsborough Street and campus surviv- ed the wild and crazy Wolfpack run for gold, but the reminders still remain. Those slight dips in Hillsborough Street aren ' t poor construction by the North Carolina Department of Transportation, but a reminder that for one month the Wolfpack stood the basketball world on its ear and the students had a great time. — Tom DeSchriver 276 Features ( ' d - iiixidt strong Heels and the Kingdom sensed an upset which would throw a kink in the expected rematch of last seasons ACC Cham- pioa-ihip between the Heels and the Cavs. The Pack held off a Heel rally late but still had to settle for a 70-70 tie in regulation. State then fell behind 82-76 with two minutes left in OT. Many believed the end was near for this upset bid. The Wolfpack didn ' t die and beat the Tar Heel ruler. Dean Smith, at his own comeback game, a miracle finish, and win 91-84. The dreams of the Kingdom were becoming a realization. Many thought that State ' s win merely gave Virginia an easy finish to the ACC Tournament Championship. It was not to be. After having lost to the Cavs twice in the regular season, the Pack ' s Bailey matched the 24 points of the Cavaliers ' top knight, Ralph Sampson. With that the Pack was able to build a nine- point advan- tage late in the game and stave off a Virginia comeback to win 81-78. " When you ' ve beaten Ralph, you ' ve done it all, " said the Wolfpack ' s pivotman Cozell McQueen ( ' Corilla ' ). That win gave State an automatic berth into the NCAAs and its first ACC title since 1974. The Kingdom was ecstatic. Celebrations roared back home in the community and the subjects were almost afraid they might wake up to find it wasn ' t true. The first-round of the NCAAs took our storybook team to lands yet unseen. Corvallis, Ore., home of Oregon State ' s Beavers, was the battleground and Gill Coliseum was a place that most of the Kingdom would only see on television, but come to appreciate in a very special way. The Kingdom sent the Pack off with a rousing pep rally held on the steps of the communities ' literary center. The hoopsters went off to the Far West to face an unknown but worthy opponent. Pepper- dine. The Wave was an unranked group of soldiers who had won their conference crown to advance to the playoffs as had State. The Pack played a slow-paced game against Pepperdine as a national televi- sion audience viewed the preceedings in a late-night broadcast seen after 11:30 p.m. on the East Coast. Pep rallies were common during March and attracted up to 20,000 people at a time. Features 7277 Trail of stars left behind in Title trek Every time there is a winner, there in- evitably must be a loser. The defeated op- ponent is not always a loser, just a non- winner. However, there seemed to be a trail of these non-winners left behind as State advanced its way through the NCAA playoffs to the National Championship. After the ACC Tournament, the Wolfpack ended the season for six teams. In the ACC Tournament, the Pack p layed and beat three teams that would go on to {X)st-season play and lose. One of those teams lost to State, another to a team that lost to State in the semi-finals. Regardless of who finally beat the ACC victims — Wake Forest, North Carolina and Virginia — the Pack ' s wins over these teams in the ACC Tournament had a great bearing on the Pack ' s trek. Eventually Alvis Rogers, Michael Jordan and Ralph Sampson all bowed out to watch the Wolfpack. As the NCAAs got underway, however, there were plenty of teams left with a look of astonishment on their faces after being left in the Pack ' s cloud of dust. The first to go was Pepperdine and although they were one of only two under- dogs the Pack faced in the tourney, they battled State into two overtimes. The first real trail of tears was left in Corvallis, Ore. after the second game. Sidney Greene, an all-America selection from UNLV was left to eat the words he had said about Thurl Bailey. Greene had stated that he was " unimpressed " with Bailey, but Thurl ' s 25 points surely changed that. A date with Utah in Ogden, Utah looked menacing, but State staved off the home crowd to attack another group of stars as they played Virginia the following Sunday in Ogden. Ralph Sampson and his band of traveling stars could hardly be called losers, but for the second straight time they had lost to the Pack. Samp.son was left in a clinch of disappointment as he committed the foul that set up the winning points. Georgia was a cast of underrated players after having lost Dominique Wilkins to the pros the year before. The Bulldogs ' first trip to the NCAAs had resulted in a Final Four appearance, but the Pack ended those hopes, too. Finally, Houston was all that remained for the Pack to dump aside to join all the rest of the NCAA field that would go home having lost their final games. The Cougars soon found out that Cinderella didn ' t turn back into a pum- pkin in this version. As Lorenzo Charles slammed home the final points a group of Houston players melted onto the floor, cry- ing and searching for a reason as to their loss. Don ' t cry Houston, you ' re not alone. There were many like you. A trail of in- jured warriors was left behind. None of them were losers, but none of them wrap- jjed up their season with a win. There could only be one team that did that and this season it was the Pack.

Had it not been for ' Co " s " rebounding a missed shot and putting it back up with six seconds left it would have all been over, but his basket knotted the score again.

" With ' Whit ' hitting eight of 10 overtime freethrows and tallying 27 points. State managed to thwart the Pepperdine throng and move into the second battle against a more highly touted team. After defeating the Wave the Pack heard rumblings of a saying that would come to stick a little more after the next game. The " Team of Destiny " was the name attached to the Wolfpack. A name given to the Pack more-or-less by itself and its mentor. King Quip- per had kept telling his team through the adverse regular season that something good was destined to happen to his team. After having escaped the opening battle of the post-season cam- paign. State went up against a band of desert Rebels that had been rated No. 1 earlier in the season. Led by the sinister- looking Jerry ' The Tark ' Tarkanian, the Runnin ' Rebels entered the NCAA event determined to prove they were no fluke. State vaulted to a 12-4 lead before falling behind 33-27 at halftime. One of the Pack ' s leaders, ' The Duke of ' T " , (Bailey) had been the Valvano ' s tactics on the court were aggressive, but his strategy earned him the respect of all the sports world. Valvano won battle of whit, wits Probably more so in the Wolfpack ' s assault on the basketball world this season than in any other run for an NCAA Cham- pionship the coaching played a major role in winning the gold. Coach Jim Valvano and his staff seemed to have the right answers at the right time. Whether down by 10 [ oints or up by 10, Valvano employed a strategy that would have fans believing that he had been coaching for 37 years and not been alive for only 37 years. Valvano ' s famed strategy was his fouling tactic when the Pack was behind and time was running out. This tactic is not new, but it never has worked like it did for the Pack. The opposition knew it was coming, but it couldn ' t do a thing about it. Two men who had to be most frustrated and most disbelieving of the Valvano ' s fouling tactics were Nevada-Las Vegas coach Jerry Tarkanian and Houston coach Guy Lewis. Tarkanian ' s Runnin ' Rebels were up by 12 in the second half of the se- cond round Western Regional only to see the lead evaporate as they couldn ' t hit free throws. As Tarkanian chomped on his ever-present towel, his players threw up brick-after-brick at the charity stripe and all of a sudden the Pack was back in the game. But the frustration award for 1983 may have to go to Lewis. The Houston coach paced the sidelines as he saw his team blow a seven-point lead down the stretch of the championship game. Every time a Houston player got the ball in the final minutes a Wolfpack player would foul him. The Cougars sensed that their dream was slipping away from them. But don ' t be fooled by Valvano ' s fouling tactic. That ' s not all the joking New Yorker had on the blackboard. Valvano pulled off one of the coaching coups of the season when he decided not to front Houston center Akeem " The Dream " Olajuwon, but instead play behind him and not allow the big Nigerian to get any dunks. Ola- juwon got his jwints, but only two were on a dunk and the Phi Slama Jama express never got rolling. The other reason that the mad dunking machine stayed grounded was that Valvano would not allow his players to get into a run-and-gun game with the Cougars. Valvano told his team to slow the tempo and take the good shots. The orJy thing about Valvano ' s strategy which still baffles the basketball world was how he had Lorenzo Charles in the right place for Dereck Whittenburg ' s now- famous " pass " at the buzzer in the cham- pionship game. — Tom DeSchriver Features 279 Without knowing it, the " destiny team " gave the people of the nation hope and a chance to believe in themselves and their dreams.

Senior all- America Sidney Green had stated that he was " unimpressed " with Bailey ' s play. Bailey responded with 25 points to lead State but that was only part of the conflict. After staying close part of the second period, the pack fell behind by 12 points with 10 minutes left in the game. Even many of the Pack ' s faithful thought that it was time to fold the tents and head back for the Kingdom. Alas and alack for the Rebels though, as UNLV choked down the stretch on their foul shots Bailey threw in a bucket with three seconds left to give the upstart Wolfpack a 71-70 win. The Pack left the friendly confines of the small but cozy province of Corvallis for the somewhat larger boundaries of Ogden, Utah. Snow greeted the Wolfpack in Ogden, and although it was general- ly white outside the Dee Events Center, home of Weber State University, the interior decor was a warm shade of purple. Whatever the colors inside or out, the contingent from the Wolfpack Kingdom painted this town red. A wild pack of Utes was sent up against the Wolfpack warriors in the first game of the weekend. The home folks of Ogden looked for a bloody battle to ensue with their Cinderella Utes emerging in an upset win. After all they had reason to brag since this band of mercenaries had upset highly-ranked UCLA in the previous round. It was not to be a dream come true for the Utes, however, as State wrapped up the season for the home team with a 75-56 win on the shoulders of " Whit ' s ' 27 points. Thanks to the fine people that ruled the NCAA selection commit- tee and sent State out West, the Pack was faced with the task of hav- ing to war against those damnable pesky Cavaliers again. Most felt that there was no way that the team from the heart of Dixie could whip those Charlottesville boys from North Dixie again. It looked as if Virginia would make it to the Final Four after having to beat a good Boston College squad — or so the Wahoo backers thought. Not so, however. The Cavaliers ' version of Goliath the Giant, Ralph Sampson, was playing for his second trip to the Final Four. After the Pack had opened a six-point margin, Virginia scored 10 straight points and by halftime led by five points. This time around, the Pack and Cavs were playing without the three- point goal, but that didn ' t stop the hot outside bombing of Whittenburg as the jump shooter canned 24 points to lead all scorers. The Pack had trailed the Cavs by seven with seven and a half The bonfires and parties that en- sued lasted well into the night — and even into the early hours of the morning. 282 Features Pep rallies alive in ' 83 As the Wolfpack marched to the NCAA title, the campus became alive and a part of the team. Pep rallies became as much a part of the University as 7:50 classes. Coach Jim Valvano joked that he could give clinics on the running of pep rallies and he delighted the student body with his one liners at each gathering. In all, three pep rallies were held, one after State won the ACC championship, one after the team returned from Ogden, Utah with the Western Regional title and the biggest of all after the team returned with the NCAA crown. The first two were held in the brickyard and the last one was at Reynolds Coliseum where 20,000 jovial fans clad in red and white greeted the 1983 National Cham- pions. The first two pep rallies were highlighted by Valvano, who clowned and jived with the fans. At the gathering following the teams return from Utah, Valvano greeted the crowd by stripping his warmup jacket and revealing a Western Regional tee-shirt Thurl Bailey choked back tears as he talked to 20,000 fans who turned out to greet the teann in Reynolds Coliseum the afternoon following the national championship victory. which brought a wild response. With the crowd in his hand, Valvano quipped, " We ' ve got to stop meeting like this.

One by one the State players made their remarks and told the crowd thank you, un- til the three senior leaders of the tearp step- ped to the microphone to say good-bye to the State fans for the final time. Thurl Bailey, Dereck Whittenburg and Sidney Lowe all introduced their parents and thanked the crowd. They said that they were sorry their four years at State were ending, and then just as suddenly as Lorenzo Charles ' championship winning dunk, it was over, and the crowd was fil- ing out of Reynolds with only its memories of the cheering and the winning and the winning . . . — Tom DeScliriver Nation ' s scribes learned to like crow During the month of March and on into early April, there are two things that dominate the sports world. One is the beginning of the Major League Baseball season and the other is the NCAA Basket- ball Tournament. Since opening day of the baseball season usually doesn ' t come until around April 6, the NCAA takes precedence during the early days of April. In 1983, the sportswriters from all over the nation had their priorities set on the NCAA Tournament. " To begin with it was a race to see how many people picked what teams to win it. Houston, Virginia, Louisville, North Carolina — they all got votes. Then as some of those teams fell victim to the upset there was a parade toward the Cougars and the Cardinals. As those two teams met in the Final Four semifinal round it was common knowledge among those scribes of great knowledge that the winner of that game would win the cham- pionship. At the conclusion of that game, Houston backers were ready to take out an in- surance policy on the national trophy to make sure nothing happened to it before it got put in their trophy case. There was no contradiction in the papers. " Say Good- night Wolfpack " one headline read in the Denver Post. Alluding to Gracie Allen ' s directions to George Burns in vaudeville. Post writer Buddy Martin had put the Wolfpack out of its misery already, especially after Houston had beaten Louisville 94-81 with 14 dunks. Some had called the State-Georgia game in the semis a " Jayvee game. " Martin had this to say about the " NBA " game between Houston and the Cards: " Impressive? Let me put it this way: I was a guy who picked Georgia as a sleeper with a possibility to win this thing. Pass the crow, please. If that was a junior varsity game that N.C. State won, then compared to the Houston team I saw Saturday, Georgia is junior high, not junior varsity. Sorry. I know that hurts Hugh Durham (Georgia Coach), but crow ain ' t steak, either. " Well Buddy, I ' ll bet you never thought there ' d be enough crow for seconds, huh? With statements like that crow could become an integral part of his diet. D.G. FitzMaurice of the Lexington Herald-Leader didn ' t have anything better to say, but he did eat his crow and apologized to the readers afterward — a pretty humorous piece he wrote while eating his take out dinner from " Kentucky Fried Crow. " Many of the articles written following the Pack ' s championship seemed to be of- fering apologies on behalf of State for hav- ing taken away Houston ' s prize. Credit was scattered sparsely throughout these stories just to add a little flavor, but the general concensus seemed to be that State lucked its way into the title instead of earn- ing it. If s too bad so many of these scribes were so bold as to fire their guns at the crows, but not bold enough to eat them when they struck down the flying fowl. Sports Illustrated of course, featured the Pack on the cover the next week, however, the story by Curry Kirkpatrick inside left much to be desired. He more or less made excuses for Houston ' s losing and undermin- ed State ' s miracle as a fluke and something they didn ' t deserve.

It was a foregone conclusion by all the scribes throughout the known world that the winner of the other game, Houston-Louisville, would be the NCAA Champion. Dreams, however, don ' t end that way, and State ' s dream hadn ' t come to a close just yet. Although Houston had played what some called " an NBA " caliber game in the semis, collecting 14 dunks and eliminating Louisville by 13 points, the " best team in the nation " may not have been as cut-and-dried as some would have thought. Bonfires and celebrations back home on Hillsborough Street were commonplace after all the victories, starting with the win agaiast North Carolina way back on Feb. 19. The intensity increased as the Pack won and by the night of the Championship game as many as 25,000 people would crowd the brickyard and Hillsborough to celebrate. A popular song on the rock charts had a line that said " Hungry Like the WolF ' . The Wolf was about to get its fill. By this time the Wolfpack had picked up a variable throng of fans. All four teams in Albuquerque sported red and white and a fair amount of the losing fans that hung around were pulling for the Wolfpack. The Pit was the name of the arena that the Pack was to complete its war in. It may have been ironic or just more destiny that the University of New Mexico, whose homecourt The Pit was, had a Lobo for its mascot. A Lobo is a wolf and two of them graced the hardwood in The Pit. Not much was said about State leading up to the final game. All 284 Features Developing team depth paid off As a season marked by the introduction of two new rules came around, all ACC coaches knew that their benches would be a key factor in their 1983 basketball cam- paigns. With the 30-second clock added to the game, players would obviously need a breather more often, ergo, depth was a must. State began the season with a few ques- tions in that category. There was no doub- ting the guard positions, but how good was State in the frontcourt coming off the bench? By the time NCAA Tournament play rolled around, those questions had been answered. Players like Terry Gannon and Alvin Battle were making their marks on the Wolfpack ' s climb to basketball fame. Gannon had drawn wide attention with his long-range jumpers, taken from in ex- cess of 20 feet most of the time. There were plenty of others who con- tributed from off the sidelines, too. Players like freshmen Ernie Myers and George Mc- Clain had a lot to do with the deepest backcourt in the nation. Battle, a junior college transfer, and junior Harold Thompson saw time with Battle being a key against Virginia especially. Alvin was the man that State head coach Jim Valvano called on to give his lumber- ing power forward, Lorenzo Charles, a rest. Battle saw considerable time throughout the season, but Valvano had a special assignment for him against Virginia. In both the ACC Tournament and the NCAA West Regional Finals when the Pack faced the Cavs, Battle had a job to do. He was to take the ball inside against Ralph Sampson and try to draw the foul. In the ACC Tournament finals. Battle had one of his best games and played well throughout the NCAAs although not in a starring role. Batde was pleased with his performance against the Cavs in the ACC Tournament Finals and suggested with continued progress he could be the ACC Tournament MVP in a year. " I think I ' ve been playing well, " he said. " If I improve next year like I have this year, maybe I ' ll be in the running for that Everett Case Award next year. " McClain and Myers were another pair that got a piece of the action in most games. After battling spinal meningitis and an ankle injury earlier in the .season, McClain bounced back and was more than ready by tournament time. He was called on more than once when Sidney Lowe got into foul trouble in the first two games of the tournament. Myers had played a key role for the team in the absence of Dereck Whittenburg dur- ing his foot injury. He had scored 35 points in one game but by the time the Wolfpack was in the NCAA Tournament he was rarely seen coming off the bench. Some wondered what had happened. Whitten- burg ' s play was the main thing keeping Er- nie out of the game, but when he did get his one or two minutes of play he made them count, usually using some individual fantastic effort to put a couple of points up. In one game he came in for all of two minutes and scored four quick points to put State back into the game. Gannon ' s role was so prominent that his mention was normally with the starters. However, his play was a crucial part of the bench. Others such as Thompson, Mike Warren, Walt Densmore, Quinton Leonard and Tommy DiNardo didn ' t con- tribute as much in minutes played, but did play vital roles as sideline leaders. State ' s championship would not have been possi- ble without this fearless play from the bench. — William Terry Kelley Key players that contributed throughout the season were (counter-clockwise from top left) Terry Gannon, Ernie Myers, Alvin Battle and George McClain.

Features 285 Whittenburg ' s injury Pack ' s biggest break of season January 12 — Downtown bomber Dereck Whittenburg scores 27 points in the first half as State roars to a six-point halftime edge over Virginia. Early in the second half, however, Whittenburg falls on Othell Wilson ' s foot and breaks his own as the Cavaliers come back for an 88-80 victory in Reynolds Coliseum. April 4 — The Wolfpack wins the Na- tional Title, 54-52, when Lorenzo Charles slams home Whittenburg ' s missed 30-footer with two seconds left. These dates stick out in Wolfpackers ' memories of State ' s long and storied trek to the National Tide. Both mark the emotionally lowest and highest points of the Pack ' s miracle season. Evenings of a disaster and a destiny, of a tragedy and a tide. As it turns out, however. State may not have been playing on April 4 had it not been for the January 12 incident. Whitten- burg ' s foot injury had an enormous effect on the team, but the yields from it did, too. The senior guard missed 14 games, and the Wolfpack ' s season went through its darkest moments. State went out of the polls, losing four of its next six games, and the Pack was down for the count. Such severe adversity seemed to spell doom for the Wolfpack, but it didn ' t claim the upp er hand. The Pack realized it had to do without Whittenburg and got back on its feet, win- ning eight of the next 10 games without him. Without Whittenburg ' s offense and leadership for awhile helped develop those qualities in other players. This accounted for the sudden turnaround. State started to find substitute means for his 16-point per game average. A predominantly guard-oriented team before. State became a more balanced team offensively with the sudden metamorphosis of Lorenzo Charles inside. The bulky power forward, averaging 6.3 points and 4.4 rebounds through 22 games, doubled that output in the Pack ' s next 12 games. Dereck Whittenburg broke his foot early in the season, but his presence on the bench was an inspiration to everyone. " We were missing 16, 17 points a game without Dereck, " forward Thurl Bailey later said. " We told Lorenzo the ball was coming to him inside whether he liked it or not. As he started gaining more confidence in himself, he developed his game tremen- dously. " Center Cozell McQueen also began to mature ahead of schedule inside. Averag- ing only three rebounds a game before Whittenburg went out, he lifted his average to 7.1 to take some of the slack of Bailey ' s and Charles ' shoulders. Freshman Ernie Myers, Whittenbur s replacement, kept State ' s offense intact from the No. 2 slot as he averaged 15.1 points during Whittenburg ' s absence. Number six man Terry Gannon saw con- siderable time while substituting for Myers and was another scoring threat from the outside, dazzling crowds with his downtown range. The Wolfpack was on the rise, and there was only one thing that could give State a greater high — the return of Whittenburg. He returned to the hardwood on February 27, ironically against Virginia. State lost that game, but it was on the rise. It would lose only once more. Whittenburg ' s injury, yielding such positive byproducts, turned fate into destiny. — Devin Steele 286 Features i Only when the final buzzer sounded did the fairy tale come true and the tears of happiness begin to fall. the talk from the sports authorities that crowded into Albuquerque centered around the " awesome " play of Houston against Louisville. Valvano quipped about being interviewed in front of the Houston section. " I was sitting there talking to (CBS Sportscaster) Brent Musburger and the Houston fans were yelling at me, ' you, you, you. " I thought I had just fouled out. " Valvano never conceded that the " awesome " Cougars would win. He just calmly said it would be important to control the tempo. Others thought maybe he should just enjoy the trip and settle for second place. The self- named fraternity of Houston leader Guy Lewis was call- ed Phi Slamma Jamma. His team of dunkers led by seven-foot Nigerian Akeem Olajuwon and forward Clyde Drexler were the leaders of the cocky crew of warriors that wore their fraternity ' s name on their warmup suits. The Pack had nothing to lose and opened the championship game with a dunk by ' T. State scored four more unanswered points to take a 6-0 lead. Drexler got his fourth foul before the first half end- ed and the Cougars trailed by a 33-25 margin at the half. The Pack lost its touch in the second half and Houston took ad- vantage to take a 42-35 lead midway through the second period. State began to nibble at the margin and had fought to within four at 46-44 at 5:08 on a 23-footer by " The Cannon " . State began to foul and a pair of 22- footers by Whittenburg knotted the score at 52 with 1:59 left. Benny Anders missed the front of a one-and-one and State got the ball with 1:05 left. The Pack shuffled the ball around and Whittenburg got his hands on the ball with five seconds to go after a near steal by Drexler. ' Whit ' fired up a 35-footer that was short. The dream was about to climax though as ' Lo ' grabbed the missed shot and jammed it through as the clock ticked away. State had outdunked the Cougars 2-1 and outscored them 54-52. Bedlam ensued. Whittenburg later commented: " I really didn ' t know how far away I was. When I looked up, I saw Lorenzo grabb- ing it and putting it back in. At first, I didn ' t know what had hap- pened. " Soon everyone knew, however. The court was filled with well-wishers and Packsters whose dreams had just come true. Shouts rang throughout the Kingdom, from coast to coast. The Cougars sank onto the floor in disbelief, their prize taken away. Olajuwon had led all scorers with 20 points but Bailey had scored 15, Whit 14, Lowe 10, McQueen eight, Charles five and Gannon four for a team effort. The miracle workers from the small basketball- rich Kingdom had done it. Pack fans had seen the fall and rise of an empire. A new fraternity called Phi Packa Attacka was bom. As a scribe once pen- ned " Life ' s battles don ' t always got to the strongest or fastest: sooner or later those who win are those that think they can, " a fitting description of the miracle warriors. Olajuwon garnered MVP honors while Bailey, Lowe and Whit made the all-Tournament team just as they had in the ACC Tournament. The basketball world and especially the Kingdom back in Raleigh might never be the same. DisbeUef turned into reality and destiny came to be truth, but fairy tales are supposed to end this way. The Pack returned home to an unprecedented welcome. Songs were recorded and books were hitting the presses within days telling of the " Cardiac Pack. " With the exception of a much publicized hernia that King Quipper had to have taken care of, everyone was in paradise back in the Kingdom. The King soon recovered from surgery and he and the seniors got to meet with President Reagan at the White House. The entire team had met with the President via satellite earlier. The Kingdom settled into a long period of celebration and enjoyment. And they aU Uved happi- ly ever after. . „ „ ' —William Terry Kelley Oltie nh Features 287 iPSi? ■■■■M il ii; ' At ' ' -f i: ..

It was noted by student leaders that most of the vandalism and arrests involved non-students. 312 Senior Class ■ Rose Mary Seymour Aurirultural Unfiinrchnu, William Smith Seymour Bioloniral i- Ae,rirulrural Ennr.

In remarks following his installation, State Chancellor Bruce R. Poulton declared, ' The immediate imper- ative for this university is that it must achieve and operate at the highest level of sophistication and to achieve excellence in all our functions. " The University, he said, is under urgent pressure to tackle the challenges of tomor- row: food, energy, natural re- sources and technology. One of the characteristics of the coming age is the integration of computers and other automated machinery into all phases of our lives, freeing us to pursue higher levels of human endeavor. After wandering in its responsi- bility to a world increasingly dependent on technology, State is back on course after two years under Poulton ' s steady direction. " State will be much more of a Never before have State students had so many opportunities to celebrate in so many ways. During April and March, Jim Valvanos crew brought glory to the brickyard (left). Even those shy of crowds (above) came out to see the Cardiac Pack bring it all back. 354 Closing More Than 1 Just An Education Professor Joseph N. Sasser holds the roots of tomato plant which have been knotted by nematodes. World hunger combated with nematode research The feeding of the world ' s ever-increasing population remains one of t ie greatest challenges of our day. Scientists at State and over 100 assooated laboratories on five continents are learning t)ow to control common and destructive plant disease called the nematode. Although the pest is largely under control in the U.S. due to effective chemical control and crop management, it cripples the food production effor ts of developing countries by an average of 25 percent. nematodes pose a serious obstacle for developing countries, explained Dr Joseph h. Sasser, professor of plant pathology and principal investigator for the International Meloidogyne Project, for three reasons the nematodes ' Mide host range, wide geographical distribution and weahening action to a plant ' s protective mechanisms. ' ' It is essential to the project to collect and identify nematode types from all over the world, so that we can grow them on a host plant (a highly susceptable tomato type) in State ' s greenhouses, " he said. " We tackled it because we had the expertise to do it, more so than any other university We created an awareness of the problem and provided tools for the scientists " Since 1975 the program has received almost $5 million from the US. Agency for International Development. To control the nematode. State researchers sought to first learn the biology and behavior of all occurring species. They soon found that only four spec es accounted for 95 percent of the collected specimens, so they concentrated their efforts there. f oot-knot nematodes are microscopic roundworms which live in the soil and m plant roots Due to their tiny size and protective habitat, they remained undiscovered until the mid- 19th century, even though the root damage they cause is quite visible. In some countries the affliction IS so common that stunted roots are considered normal. Soil samples and ecological data accompany each sample, so species can be characterized by host range, temperature, precipitation and soil characteristics After compiling and analyzing this information, researchers have begun to concentrate on nematode control through preventive management practices They have discovered that crop rotation and selection of resistant crops are nearly as effective as the use of chemicals This is significant, Sasser noted, because chemical treatment remains prohibitively expensive and unavailable to many farmers in developing countries When the crop management methods take hold around the world, increased food production in developing countries will be closer to reality -W J.W 356 Closing II ' " % " In the early fall and late spring, temperatures were high and clothes were few, and ever since the fountain was completed in 1975, students have donned their bathing suits and laid out in the not-so-clean-but-cool waters. graduate- and research-oriented university ten years from now, " he said. Poulton defends the great enrollnnent junnps of recent years by stating that 600 qualified applicants, that applied to State for the 1985 fall semester have been turned away. In a prepared statement he said, ' ' lA e deeply regret not being able to admit these qualified applicants, but we are full. The reco rd applications indicate the wide spread interest in the kinds of degree programs offered at 5tate... " Admissions Director Anna Keller has reas- sured these applicants that they ' ' not consider this (rejection) letter a negative evaluation of Closing 357 Continuous cultivation on this family ' s land is possible for the first time due to State ' s soil research. Research into acid soiis increases food production 5tate research teams haue been worhing In Latin America for more than ten years on an agncultural problem which threatens the economic and political stability of that region. Their goal Is to deK elop practical soil management techniques for the humid tropics and acid savannas, areas pr iously considered infertile or at best producti je for one or two growing seasons. Dr John J. hicholaldes III, professor of soil science and formerly of the Peace Corps, coordinates the University ' s Tropical Soils Research Program tie said that if a way can be found to produce enough food for the growing populations in the Amazon rain forests, some of the chaos which results when masses of people suffer from poverty and hunger may be avoided, Hicholaldes said. And if the U.S. can help bring about such stability, ties to those countries will be strengthened. State scientists based in Yurlmaguas, Peru, since 1972 have been successful In creating continuous crop production on soil previously considered productive for only one or two crops at best By the fall of 1 982 they succeeded In growing 28 consecutive crops on one site Their worH has been supported primarily by the US Agency for International Development, which considers this one of its most successful projects ever. The traditional farming technique in the region has been the " slash and burn " method, where the land is cleared, tilled for a season o r so until the land is depleted, then abandoned for new acreage Population pressures are forcing a shorter fallow period (about four years), rather than the 14 to 21 years needed for the land to completely renew itself after the slash and burn technique has been applied, he said Development of the soil management techniques means that land can be maintained continually productive, and further clearing of the rain forests can be done with good Judgement The similarity of the soil in the Amazon Basin research area to that of eastern north Carolina means that the techniques and crop varieties developed for the humid tropics can be brought bach and adapted to agriculture here, tlicholaides explained " The important thing for people to realize is that we are not conducting giveaway programs, " he said " We are working with these countries to help them develop the technologies so that they can become self supporting. " Peru and Brazil are sharing the financial burden for research. — Barbara Baker 358 Closing - Many relationships are developed during one ' s college years. For some, that room- mate will be a friend for life (far left). Most students had some kind of hot and heavy romance (top), some stood the test of time, but most did not. It was a good time to make that impression with your professors and classmates (middle); a relationship that might have helped later on in the marketplace. Then every once in a while there was that special someone that came along (bottom), and then nothing else mattered anymore. your credentials as much as a reflection of the connpetition students face in applying to M.C. State University. " For the lucky applicants who made the grade, the rigors of freshman chemistry and mathematics await them. Speaking of research, the gifted Dean of Research Dr. henry Smith declares " ...its as reason- able to expect that within five years, MC5U will be a research university of a very good quality. " States needs to restructure re- search administration offices and establish more world-class in- stitutes, which Smith says are in the works. Much of his job Closing 359 Dr. Pat Levi purifies proteins involved in the metabolism of foreign compounds such as pesticides. Effects of pesticides probed in laboratory It h35 been Sdid that science is neuer going to give a conclusive, definitive answer on most environmental questions. For example, — " DDT is a potent a y important carcinogen ' ' — " DDT IS a weak carcinogen " Or even more controversially, — " The hamster is the best laboratory animal for prediction to humans " — " ho latxxatory animal can safely predict human effects ' ' As difficult as the task is to deduce effects of pesticides on humans, such research is underway at State with a grant from the national Institutes of health. While limited work Is done with mammals, the bulk of research is conducted with invertebrates like insects and lower forms of life because there are little fundamental differences in reproductive and Inheritance processes. ' ' If properly used, pesticides can be used with a maximum amount of safety, " said Dr. Ernest hodgson, professor of entomology and program director of the Interdepartmental research effort, involved are the Departments of Biochemistry, Botany, Crop Science, Entomology, Genetics and Statistics. Pesticides are ideally used with the object of maximal lethal effects to the infestation and minimal effects to desirable forms of life, however, a scientific basis must be estab ished to determine which pesticides we can live with and which we must learn to live without. The time-consuming research at State, in progress for the past decade, is very specialized. It centers on the mechanisms by which pesticides enter the body and are transported to sites of action or detoxification further, it is important to know whether the toxic compounds accumulate In txidy tissues or dissipate through natural processes Man 5 at a disadvantage to lower forms of life, hodgson explained, because higher reproductive rates provide the opportunity for life to adapt to the presence of pesticides through evolution Mosquitos, with a mere lifespan on the order of days, can develop resistance to modern pesticides, aggravating an already tiad Insect control problem in horth Carolina Better knowledge should lead to better and more direct means of pest control as well as make the world a safer place for man -W J.W 360 Closing involves meeting with industry and govemnnent to solicit re- search grants, without which State research progranns would grind to a halt. A four-year financial development program will make possible the evolution of State into a world class university. nothing comes easily, be it a national basketball championship or a college education. It takes the attitude that you can never be satisfied with what you have. And when you do something, put out 110 percent of your ability, finding talent and energy you thought you didn ' t possess. Smith has written, " Determined effort will bring success. We must learn to Campus life was as much a part of an education as one ' s school work. Learning to cook was not an easy task in a small dorm room (lower right). Most students managed as best they could and graduated at least knowing how to cook on a budget. Coping away from home was an independent thing. One had to introduce oneself and make the first move. Most did and enjoyed the typically active State social life (left). Some (lower left) had to deal with a strange new environment. Foreign, handicapped and shy students all had to overcome their inhib- itions and declare that they too were part of the State community. Grade A Number One! On May 14th, 1983, Edward Hardy Frazelle of Raleigh became valedic- torian of State ' s 1983 graduating class. He achieved an overall grade- point-average of 3.976. He was the recipient of the school of engineer- ing ' s senior award for scholarly achievement, the Tau Beta Pi fellow- ship, and the Material Handling Edu- cation Foundation scholarship for graduate study. Ed graduated with a degree in industrial engineering and plans to further his study in State ' s graduate school. Closing 361 Associate Professor Thomas Dow uses a laser interferometer, a highly precise measuring instrument. Mavy supports creation of highly precise tools In recent decades the manufacture of many scientific instruments, defense weapons systems and consumer goods has come to depend on precise fabrication techniques however, the limit of most mechanical measuring and manufacturing devices In place today 15 exceeded by recent efforts at miniaturization and production control Positioning on some electrical circuits operates on the order of 00001 of an inch More reduction is size is expected It is the goal of a research project in State ' s Mechanical Engineering Department to develop a machine tool system which operates under computer control The problems of the control of minute motions in manufacture have tiecome a critical concern of the military, which relies on small electrical circuitry and precisely ground lenses and mirrors in its weapons systems. long with Stanford, Purdue and the University of Maryland, State is sharing a H 25 million grant from the U.S. Office of Haval Research to perfect the required machining process Basic to the research effort is the development of a state-of-the-art automated production device. Dr Fialph A Burton, head of the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department and project head, said the successful inclusion of high precision tools into Industry will require the close cooperation of txith physicists and machinists The extreme precision now requires their combined expertise hot only is there the practical problem of designing a cutting head that will move in small enough increments, but there is also the problem of the worhpiece deforming while it tje ng cut The researchers are finding that even the material ' s properties must be predicted by computer so that these deformations during cutting can be anticipated This was one of many challenges which the project presented Staffed by faculty and seven master ' s degree candidates, the laboratory Is located on the third floor of Broughton Hall One of the requirements of presision measurement is a clean, dust-free, temperature-stabilized environment A vibration-free work table is being constructed to isolate the instruments from locomotive vibration and disturbances from persons moving within the lab The lab ' s proximity to the railroad tracks will require the eventual relocation of the lab to F{esearch Triangle Park when sufficient progress has been made to involve industry When a prototype vertical lathe is operational in the lab, it should be able to consistently produce almost identical machine parts and will automatically correct for wear and temperature effects Such functions should have profound t enefits for industry by making very small-scale fabrication possible and reducing the numtxr of factory-rejected parts -W J.W. 362 Closing The last day of class was a quiet day. It always seemed that as you walked out of your final exam, that you were the last to leave. You packed your last bag and transferred all you had accumulated into the family car. As you drove away, you looked back and saw two sophomores crossing the street toward campus, probably checking to make sure they were coming back the next year. You knew that you weren ' t coming back. You had finished. be even more impatient with mediocrity. " h.C. State has more to offer than just a national championship and the celebra- tions that go with it, but one has to put the effort in before one can get anything out. When one strives to excel, the rewards are as great as any celebrations that might take place on the brickyard. jo onward now, with the knowl- edge that you know more.
