A public information meeting
Tuesday night on the recently released
College Curriculum Report drew 27
people more than half of whom were
involved in writing the report.
Arts and Sciences Dean Samuel R.
Williamsorhsaid the meeting was called
"to inform the University community
and students in particular about the
report. " Williamson is a member of the
committee that wrote the report.
A hearing will be held Oct. 30 to hear
opinions and criticism on the report.
Williamson gave several reasons for
the low attendance, including the World
Series telecast and a mix-up in meeting
times (a Daily Tar Heel advertisement
said 7:30 p.m., while the Campus
Calendar listed 8 p.m.) "The students
may have taken the same attitude as the
faculty, that the report has already
passed," he added.
If approved by the Faculty Council
early next semester, the repeat would be
implemented in spring 1982 with changes
in the foreign language requirement
scheduled for 1984 and 1986.
At the meeting, Williamson outlined
the College Curriculum Report. The
report would institute a one-semester
mathematics requirement for all
students along with the current two
semester foreign language requirement.
In 1984, students who place into a
second foreign language course will be
required to take the third one. No
student will receive credit toward
graduation for an introductory foreign
language course. In 1986, or when 75
percent of the entering freshman class
place into a second course in foreign
language, all students will be required to '
complete three foreign language courses.
Be delaying the foreign - language
requirements until 1984, Williamson
said high school students will have time
to prepare. Also, high schools will "get
the message," and begin emphasizing
foreign language studies. "
English Professor Weldon Thornton
also discussed the. meaning of
"capstone," or interdisciplinary
courses. The committee recommended
in the report that- all B.A. degree
students take one capstone course to
fulfill one of five junior-senior course
A capstone course, Thornton said,
could be problem-oriented. "It would
involve looking at the uses of
knowledge to step back and look at the
advantages and limitations of how we
structure knowledge here. It could look
at methodology," he "said.
im District 19
Steve Moazed, a senior from Raleigh,
was elected District 19 representative to
the Campus Governing Council in
Wednesday's run-off election.
He defeated opponent Mike Williams
in a 9-4 vote.
Moazed, an English major, has
worked in the N.C. General Assembly
for two years as an assistant sergeant of
arms in the State House. He said
Wednesday he was not sure in what area
of the council he wanted to work.
"My name got written into the first
election, and I sort of fell into it.
However, I am very politically
oriented," Moazed said. "The problems
I see on the council are the same I see
througout the campus that i the lack
of student contact with what goes on
Elections Board Chairman Gregg
James said the election ran smoothly.
"I was very satisfied with the election
on the whole," James said. "But I am
disappointed with the voter turnout."

Williamson said one example of a
capstone course would be one examining
the economics of sex discrimination.

definition in the report has caused "a,
certain amount of befuddlement"
among the faculty. "Our colleagues are

Convinced that candidate John East
has a good chance of upsetting his
Democratic opponent Sen. Robert
Morgan, the national GOP organization
responsible for electing Republican
senators has poured another SI 00,000
into East's campaign checkbook.
The donation brings the Republican
Senatorial Campaign Committee's
contribution to East to a total of
$190,000, committee spokesman Larry
McCarthy said this week.
East may receive the committee's
maximum contribution of 5250,000
before the Nov. 4 election, McCarthy
The committee bases its donations in
part on a candidate's chances of
winning, rating them from level 4, which
is no chance at all, to level 1, in which
the Republican candidate is ahead or
even with his opponent.
"We give to races we think we can
win," McCarthy said. East was rated
earlier this year at level 3, a long shot,
and had received only $15,000 from the
committee as of July 1,
East, a political science professor at
East Carolina University, said his
campaign budget was $1.25 million. The
Congressional Club, a conservative
political organization based in Raleigh,
is managing his campaign.
Lt. Gov. Jimmy Green will be in
Chapel Hill Friday as a part of his bid
for re-election in November. The
Democratic incumbent is scheduled to
speak to the East Chapel Hill Rotary
Club Friday at 1 p.m. at the Holiday
Inn. He also is scheduled to attend the
UNON.C. State University football
game Saturday afternoon in Kenan
Green will use Chapel Hill as a
stopping point before traveling to
Goldsboro and Albemarle on Friday and
Saturday. His opponent is Republican
Bill Ccbey, who is the former athletic
director at UNC.
Gov. Jim Hunt's weekly press
conferences have proven invaluable for
the North Carolina press and for Hunt,
deputy press secretary Brent Hackney
said in a recent interview.
"It helps the governor interpret the
public mood as well as find out what's
going on," Hackney said. "It builds an
atmosphere of trust between the press
and the governor and enables him
(Hunt) to get his message out."
During his 1976 gubernatorial
campaign, Hunt promised weekly press
conferences as part of his
Hackney said Hunt had developed
personal relationships with reporters and
had received good press coverage during
the last four years.
"He (Hunt) was never made to look
bad, per se; maybe in some editorials
that questioned his motives," Hackney
Hackney was a reporter for the
Greensboro Daily News before his
appointment as deputy press secretary
MILWAUKEE (AP) John B.

has given up weeks of fruitless efforts to
borrow $10 million from banks for an
intensive, campaign-end television
advertising blitz. Instead, he'll" borrow a

On a day of bad news for his
independent presidential campaign,
Anderson, w ho campaigned here and in
-Seattle, learned Wednesday that he
. dropped from 15 percent to 8 percent
nationwide in the Gallup Poll.
The survey has Republican Ronald
Regan with 45 percent and President
Jimmy Carter- with 42. In mid
September, the Gallup Poll had Reagan
at 41 percent, Carter at 37 and Anderson
Meanwhile, the League of Women
Voters is trying to decide whether to
rescind its invitation to him and ask
Carter and Reagan to debate alone. The
decision is expected today or Friday.
Although Anderson was unable to
persuade a number of banks in Ne'yw
York and Chicago to lend him funds,
campaign manager Michael MacLeod
said a drive for loans from individuals
had netted more than $1 million in 11
days. He said another $1.5 million to $2
million is expected before the Nov. 4
"The banks may have let us down but
the people have not," he said.
Mitchell Rogovin, Anderson's
campaign lawyer, told reporters in
Washington that five banks had agreed
to lend the campaign up to $2.5 million
but that they would only do so if other
banks of similar size provided the rest.
Carrboro approves new condominium plans
The Carrboro Board of Aldermen gave a local developer
permission Tuesday night to build condominiums on West view
Drive at N.C. 54 in Carrboro.
Skye Loch Homes is planning to build 57 units, owner
Milton Lanphear said. The units will be constructed as they are
purchased, with six units planned for a first phase, Lanphear
said. Construction may begin late this fall and will cost about
$55,000. The units will comprise approximately 1,100 square
feet, he said.
The aldermen asked Lanphear to have an alternate plan for
condominiums for the handicapped, Alderman Steve Rose
said. Although these plans are not required by state law,
Lanphear told the board one out of six units could be changed,
into a handicapped dwelling, according to Rose.
A bike and pedestrian path to West Poplar Street is another
condition in the board's approval, Rose said. The path would
not have to be constructed until the third phase of
condominiums is begun. "The board felt this was not any
different from requiring a developer to build streets in a
subdivision," Rose said. He added that this path would
provide easier access to bus and commuter routes to the

How the human mind
can expand the realm
"No barriers, no masses of
matter however enormous, can
withstand the powers of
the mind; the remotest comers
yield to them; all things suc
cumb; the very heaven itself
is laid open. These words
were written bv a man named
Marcus Manilius almost 2, (XX)
Read them carefully.
And remember them well.
For though these words
carry the advantages of elo
quence, they signify much more
than the facility of a writer who
has long since turned to dust.
These words express a
truth that time cannot age or
alter. Because there is in all of
us a need to understand that
is immortal and insatiable. A
need that makes the unknow
able food for thought and the
unheard-of music to our ears.
At Conoco Chemicals we
are more than mindful of this
need. It is an intrinsic part of
w hat we are and what we hope
to be. For our need to know
has compelled us to develop
the kind of technology that
will solve the problems we put
to it. The kind of technology
that, when coupled with our
financial strength and supply
self-sufficiencv.can breach the
barrier between what is possi
ble and what is not.
The many advancements
and refinementsthat we arc
presently responsible for are,
we feel, both proof and promise.
Because the level of tech
nology that we have achieved
is only the beginning of the
kind of expertise that we are
striving to attain.
For Manilius was right.
There are no real boundaries
to the realm of possibility.
There are only opportunities.

to tirelessly pursue. Opportu
