Several irreckrities in this year's clsction procedures
have placed The Dally TcrHzcl and student body presi
dent races in limbo for another day.
The Elections Board Wednesday niht appointed two
of its members to investigate complaints and to report
back to the board tonight. At this point, Jim Hummel
has won 50.1 percent of the votes for DTH editor and
Joe Buckner was leading in the student body presiden
tial race with 49.1 percent.
DTH candidate Thomas Jessiman filed a complaint
with the Elections Board last night protesting the clos
ing of the Craige Dorm polls 30 minutes before the offi
cial closing time of 7 p.m. He also said that Hummel
supporters allegedly were handing out brochures within
the 50 feet limit of the election polls in Hinton James.
"We took Craige by 2 to i vote," Jessiman said.
"With that box staying open the full time and with
other election violations corrected, we could have won
. The Craige poll was closed at 6:15 p.m. because of
personal problems involving the poll tender, said Deana
Williamson, Elections Board executive assistant, who
spoke with the Craige poll tender.

After counting results of ballots from
Hinton James and Wilson Library, un
certified results shows there will be a
runoff for student body president between
Joe Buckner and Scott Norberg on Feb. 17.
The uncertified count was: Buckner,
3,205 votes (49.1 percent); Norberg, 2,710
votes (41.5 percent); Tim Smith, 239 votes
(4.4 percent); Mark Eozynski, 230 votes
(3.5 percent), and write-ins 91 (1.4 percent).
Counting stopped for a while Tuesday
night when Norberg questioned an agree
ment the candidates signed which stated
they would accept results from Hinton
James although registration sheets were
not used there. Norberg said he wanted
to make sure the agreement would not
invalidate the candidates' rights to dis
agree with any other irregularities in the

again Wednesday night. "We can't let

Norberg said he thought the added
time would give him a chance to empha
size the work he has done in Student
Government. "It is a whole new ball
game," he said.
Both Bozymski and Smith had asked
that their votes be voided, throwing the
election to Buckner. However, the Elec
tions Board denied their request. Buck
ner said that voiding the votes would be
"unethical" and that he advised them to
withdraw their request.
Smith said he had not talked with either
candidate directly about throwing them
his support and that he wanted to remain
neutral at this time.
A runoff also will be held between
Carolina Athletic Association presidential
candidates Jake Kelly and Steve Theriot.
The uncertified vote count was: Kelly,
1,955 votes (31.8 percent); Harold Cooley,
335 votes (5 J percent); Chuck Gardiner,
1,850 votes (30.1 percent); and Theriot,
1,910 votes (31.1 percent); and write-ins,
91 (1.5 percent).
Kelly said the runoff made her more
nervous than the first election.
"A lot of places where Gardiner did
real well, so did Steve I'll have to work
real hard," Kelly said.
"I think I'll run strong in a runoff,"
Theriot said, but added, "It's going to
be another squeaker."

Wake Forest came into Carmichael Auditorium
Wednesday night and beat the North Carolina Tar
Heels badly. It was that simple.
"It was embarrassing, it was embarrassing to all
of us," Al Wood said of Wake's 84-63 thrashing of
the Tar Heels. The defeat marked the first time
since 1973 thai Carolina has lost two consecutive
games in Chapel Hill.
"I can't remember us being dominated like that,
especially here," Carolina coach Dean Smith said.
"We weren't ready to play, and that's my fault."
Whatever the reason, North Carolina was nearly
out of the ball game before the fans had settled in
their scats. The seventh-ranked Deacons came out
nearly as sluggish as UNC and neither team scored
in the game's first 2:57, but Wake managed to
shake its slow .start while the Tar Heels did not.
All five Wake starters had a hand in the early
rally that staked the Deacons to a 24-6 lead midway
through ;he half. The big guns, though, were Jim
Johnstone, Frank Johnson and Alvis Rogers, each
of whom had 6 points in the game's first 10
"They jumped on us early," Wood said. "We
were fiat-footed while they were moving and
... After the Deacons' initial burst, the Tar Heels
""finally began having some success on offense and
managed to keep the Deacs from opening the lead
Wake took its biggest lead of the first half at
40-18 when Mike Helms hit a 15-footer at the 1:36
mark. Wake led 44-23 at intermission.
Any hope of a North Carolina comeback then
suffered a serious setback in the early moments of
the second half when Guy Morgan, Johnson and
Rogers hit the first three baskets of the half to
extend the lead to 49-22.
"We thought the first five minutes of the second
half would be very important in any comeback at
tempt they might make," said Wake Forest coach
Carl Tacy. "We knew we were going to be hard
pressed in the second half and that we would have
to do a good job of protecting the ball."-
"We came out and they opened up the lead even
more," Wood said. "We were still flat-footed for
"Our main objective was to get the tap and score
quickly for motivation," James Worthy said. But
the tap was knocked out of bounds by Sam Perkins
and Wake began pushing the margin wider.
"I thought at the half we still had a chance to
win the game," Smith said. "But, we had to get off
to a better start than we did."

North Carolina legislators are considering
the establishment of a state revenue sharing
program modeled after a federal program
that would return millions of dollars in state
taxes to towns and counties.' .
During the first year, the measure would
send S3 million to the 100 counties and about
$2.7 million to towns and cities depending on
Sen. Robert Jordan, D-Mt, GUead, who
supports the till, emphasized the counties
. ,,.1 IWi kwuiilvn.1 lvtu. Vl Sunt'
mandates requiring social services and health
The S3 million is already in the budget as
part of the general fund, he said. This fund is
supplied by sales and Income taxes, so it
grows as inflation increases.
"This is just one way we can give them
(counties) some growth income," Jordan
said. "Further legislative sessions could raise
the amounts as they see fit."
But opponents of the bill are concerned
that local governments might become so de
pendent cn the state that their programs
could collapse if funding ever ceased.
Sen. Sam Noble, D-Lumberton, expressed
another concern. "Why have them send
money up here, through taxes, and then we
send it tack?" h; asked "They'll never get
back v hat they send up here, after it has been
all through the bureaucracy."
Noble said he preferred that regulation of
local programs be loosened and that state ad
ministrative expenses be reduced so more
money could go directly to counties.
The exact refund amount for Orange
County depends on which of several propo
sals concerning revenue sharing eventually is
Rep, Joe Hackney, D-Orange, said since
- revenue sharing was a pilot proposal invol
ving little money at present, it would make
little difference in Orange County's current
He said even if the proposal passed, it may
not be put into effect this year, since the state
budget may be trimmed.
Rep. Patricia Hunt, D-Orange, said the
state would wait to see what cuts President
Reagan made before deciding where general
fund money would go. It may be necessary to
fund Medicaid or highway construction in
stead of giving a refund to counties, she said.
Hunt said she did not support revenue
sharing but preferred that the state pay coun
ty expenses cn schools and services and let
the local governments be responsible for rais
ing their own taxes. ;
Presently, counties and cities rely cn pro
perty taxes, which are unresponsive to infla
tion, to fund social services that the state
mandates, she said.

Petitions signed by more than 5,000 students protesting
Southern Bell's request to raise its rates 128 percent will be pre
sented to the N.C. Utilities Commission when Residence Hall
Association President Peggy Leight testifies before the commission
in Raleigh this morning. '
Leight said in addition to presenting the petitions, she plan
ned to make it clear to the commission that students felt the
proposed rate hikes were exorbitant and needed to be reduced.
"The petitions are a way to say that there are students who are
upset (about the proposal)," she said.
Southern Bell requested on Sept. 4 that the charge for central
office work wiring work involved in phone connections
be raised from $5.85 to $23.25, an increase of 239 percent. The
company also requested that the primary service charge of
$11.35 be increased to $16.85 and the current rebate of $3.00
fee Increased to $5.35. The new total proposed bill would be
$34.75. The present charge is $15.20.
In September, representatives from Student Government,
RHA and the Student Consumer Action Union toured the
Southern Bell Chapel Hill facilities, and said they were uncon
vinced the rate hike was justified.
Leight said that when she testified, she would probably re
iterate UNC's stance on the issue.
In January, Robert Peake, director of the UNC Utilities Di
vision, testified before the commission that central office work
was essentially the same as reconnecting a phone that had been
in operation (a restoration fee), and neither the $5.85 charge
nor the proposed $23.25 fee was acceptable.
During his testimony, Peake proposed that Southern Bell
charge $15.35 for installation. That would include a central
office charge of $3.85, a primary service charge of $16,85 and
a rebate of $5.35.
Leight said she expected the commission to approve a fee
close to the commission's Public Staff recommendation. The
staff proposed a $15.35 charge for installation, including a
$7.90 central office fee, a primary service charge of $13.00 and
a rebate cf $5.35. "
Southern Bell has said the merer. e was needed to offset the
.effects cif Inflation and to meet the requirements of an gntl
inHation program. The proposed increase would generate an
extra 5 C3.2 million in revenue.
