jubilant over triumph

WASHINGTON "Oh, my God," someone
said. It was only 8:15 on election night, and already
John Chancellor of NBC News was estimating
Republican Ronald Reagan a landslide victor over
President Jimmy Carter. The Carter victory
celebration had only just begun at- the Sheraton
Washington, but clusters of the president's
supporters, staring at the ballroom's wide-screen
televisions in shock and disbelief, were being told it
was all over.
One man turned away when asked what had
happened. "I don't want to talk about it," he said,
stalking out of the ballroom. Across the floor, the
band played only occasionally. No one danced. No
one was listening.
"I came down to see the misery on thier faces,"
said Will Zachmann of Cambridge, Mass., and a
Carter supporter in 1976. This time he voted for
Reagan. "Carter's been selling out to liberal
positions throughout his four years," Zachmann
said. "Thank goodness he hasn't succeeded." He
scanned the crowded ballroom of more than 5, 000
people waiting for the president to concede and
smiled. "Carter has proven to be a nobody," he

he started, "I told you I would never lie to you, so I
can't stand here and say it doesn't hurt." 'More
cheers. More tears.' And, then, after his concession
to an opponent 3,000 miles away, Jimmy Carter
was gone. . .
The president's press secretary, Jody Powell,
stared with baggy eyes at an array of television sets
in the press room at the Sheraton. Only an hour
before, the celebration out in the ballroom had
turned into a wake as the president "conceded. Now
Powell had to tell the press what had happened.

night it had to be. More than 10,000 Republicans
and party-goers toasted the new president through
the night, in a frenzy of politics and a flush of
victory. . .
"It's super," said Dan Kailemyn of Des Moines,
Iowa. "We thought we'd be here all
night for a cliffhanger." An elderly man staggered
by, drink in hand, evidently quite inebriated.
Angie Brown, a staff worker at the Republican
National Committee, was surprised at Reagan's
victory. "No one at the RNC predicted this kind of
win," she said. "The Senate did really well and we

John Anderson wasn't elected
president ' Tuesday, but his post
election bash at the Hyatt Regency had
all the ingredients of a full-blown
victory party. , .
The celebration was Anderson all the
way. Brie was in place at the
refreshment table and chablis was
being served at the bar for $1.50 a
glass, while red Anderson T-shirts were
sold at reduced prices in the hall.
The crowd, which watched
Anderson's percentage of the popular
vote increase from 4 percent to a final
total of roughly 6 percent, peaked at a,
boisterous 3,000 before the

congressman couldn't resist a final jab,
though a mild one, at defeated

Putting an arm around daughter
Susie, Anderson said his youngest

way during the campaign.

The Cimpus Governing Council
Elections Laws Review Committee
submitted proposed revisions for the
UNC elections bylaws to the CGC
It was the final report by the
committee after a month's work on the
laws. Although no major changes were
made in the election process, the
committee proposed several revisions to
eliminate ambiguities in the wording of
the laws and future disputes about
. ' . .".-.'. - -,.
The committee proposed a limit be set
on the number of signatures to be turned
in to the Elections Board on a valid
petition for a candidate. If the change is
approved, candidates in any race could
only submit 150 percent more than the
number of signatures required by the
Elections Board." Because students can
only sign one petition for a single office,
the committee said it believed this
restriction would eliminate any
jnonopoly of signatures for one
candidate in a race.
Student Body President Bob Saunders
and several other council members,
however, said they would not support
such a proposal.
"The candidates will still get as many
VVirftHtH"X: it'.mbht - cause - problems
with the future elections boards."
Another proposal by the committee
would place together on ballots, the
names of senior class presidential , and
vice presidential candidates who run
together. The president and vice
president have traditionally campaigned
together on the same platform, but have
not been on the same ballot. The
proposal, Elections Board Chairman
Gregg James said, would be fairer to the
candidates because it would eliminate
the possibility of the election of one
candidate without his running mate.
The committee also proposed a
change in the process for handling
disputed elections. Chief Justice of the
Student Supreme Court Roy Cooper
suggested the Elections Board could
hold hearings on any complaint within
24 hours of receiving it. The Elections
Board would hcar'all arguments cn the
issue. The chairman would then ask
court justice to rule whether the
arguments concerned constitutional law,
an Elections Board error or errors of
administration of election bylaws. In the
cases of constitutional law or
administrative errors, the Supreme
Court would have jurisdiction. The
. Election Board would rule on matters of
the administration of. election bylaws
and decide whether' the severity of the
errors warranted holding a new election,
The committee also changed the
structure of the Elections Board, adding
a possible five non-voting members to
Elections Board Chairman Gregg
James said he believed the committee
had addressed most of the important
problems in the bylaws.
"I think we got the main points, and I
am pleased with the reaction we got
from CGC," James said. ?'I feel with
these changes and the fact 'we are
starting tomorrow to prepare for the

"They were extremely thorough. I'm
a bit surprised the types of .changes
proposed were never brought up by the
Supreme Court," he said.
The CCG referred the propo:ab to its
Rules and Judiciary Committee. The
committee will study the revisions and
may make additions to them before the
bill is again submitted to the full council

speculation that he would seek a vote

nation including his own.
