students to the University for a few days,
lets them register for classes, and allows

Student Government bought two
shares of General Motors (GM) stock
Friday to express support for Campaign
GM, a Washington-based consumer group
which is trying to make General Motors
responsible to its stockholders.
The stock, registered in the name of
Student Government of UNC, was bought
for $82 a share. The purchase from a
Chapel Hill broker was made by a
Student Legislature committee composed
of Gerry Cohen, Richard Fox and

the bill to purchase the GM stock after
the University indicated it was not willing
to support Campaign GM proposals. The
University holds a substantial amount of
stock, thereby wielding voting power
among the GM stockholders.
Student Legislatures will vote one of
the shares in favor of the Campaign GM
proposals. "The proposals are to require
GM to make full disclosure of its
anti-pollution effort, to put
non-management candidates for the
board of directors on management proxy
and to expand the board by putting a
consumer, an auto owner and a GM
employe on it," explained Cohen.
The decision on how to vote the
second share will be made in a
referendum at the spring student
elections March 16.
Student Government may send two
students to the General Motors annual
meeting in Detroit May 21 although this
meeting falls during final exams.
Student Legislature urged the
University to cast its shares at the
stockholders meeting in favor of the
proposals of the Project on Corporate
Responsibility when it approved the bill
to buy the two shares.
The money for the stock purchase was
obtained from the Student Government
general surplus rather than from the
University trust fund.
Dividends of $6.80 a year will be paid
to the Student Government general
surplus. The sale of the stock may later
be ordered at the discretion of Student
