Chapel Hill, North Carolina
Area leaders call Movermmemil democratic
By JOHN CONWAY
Although comprised of a majority of white
males, the Chapel Hill Town Council and the
Carrboro Board of Aldermen typify representative
and democratic local governments, several town
The Chapel Hill Town Council is composed of
six white males, two white females and one black
male. However, council member Bev Kawalec said
that race and sex have no bearing upon the coun
cil's representation of citizens.
"I do not think we have a system that is
dominated by white men," Kawalec said. "I think
that blacks and women are well-represented on the
council and in government. Not only by Marilyn
(Boulton), R.D. Smith, and myself, but in fact by
the rest of the council members."
Outnumbered by men 3-to-l, women on the
council are treated with the same respect as their
male counterparts, Kawalec said. The sexist view
of women assumes they have limited fiscal and
financial orientation. However, council members
are neither sexist nor racist, she said.
"I think how much respect your ideas are given
on the council, to a large extent, depends on how
much knowledge you are revealing on the subject
that you are speaking on," she said. "If the coun
cil thinks that you know what you are talking
about, they'll listen to you."
Elected in 1977 with Kawalec, town council
member and mayor pro tempore Marilyn Boulton
said she shared Kawalec's democratic view of local
government. There is little objection by
the council to having women on the coun
cil, she said.
"I was really quite surprised how .
responsive people who sit on the council
are to the people of Chapel Hill,"
Boulton said. "I honestly think it's pro- .
bably as democratic a system as could
The only black currently serving on the council,
R.D. Smith, said the only way white males
dominate are in number. While not all of his pro
posals receive unanimous support, Smith said the
council was considerate of his views. Council
members tend to vote according to personal
philosophies rather than following racial or sexual
"We have too many 4-to-4, 5-to-3 and 3-to-5
votes for there to be block voting," Smith said.
A random examination of council votes con
firms Smith's contention that members do not vote
in blocks. Of votes on resolutions from September
1981 to November 1981, more than 75 percent
were passed unanimously. The remaining votes
were usually split across race and sex lines.
7 don't think we have a system
that is dominated by white men. I
think that btacks and women are
well-represented on the council
and in government.' n ,
Both women on the council said they received
the same respect and consideration as any other
member. Boulton and Kawalec are very diligent on
fiscal and financial matters, town council member
Jonathan Howes said.
Relatively few women become involved in town
politics because it has the "reputation of being a
grueling job," Kawalec said. Women view politics
as cutthroat competition, which to some extent is
true, she said. Boulton said women were
discouraged from participating in town govern
ment because of tradition and the few number of
women who actually participate.
"It's a shame that Chapel Hill has never had a
woman mayor, simply because there are certainly
many qualified women who could have done the
job," Kawalec said. "I think it would be
a very good step forward."
Members of the Carrboro Board of
Aldermen also view their political pro
cesses as being democratic and represen
tative of Carrboro residents.
"I think there are people who have dif
ferent philosophies (on the board), and
those views often cross racial lines," Car
rboro Mayor Bob Drakeford said. But he ques
tioned the responsiveness of white board members
to minority concerns.
"I hope they do (give equal consideration), but
that's not always the case," Drakeford said.
"Some of the arguments against public housing
are just purely racist."
The days of "gross discrimination" have pass
ed, Board of Aldermen member Joyce Garrett
said. Although Garrett is the only woman on the
Carrboro Board, she said she equally represented
both men's and women's concerns.
Among southern towns, Chapel Hill and Carr
boro display two of the most progressive local
governments, said UNC professor of political
science Gordon Clevelandj former Orange County
commissioner and school board member. .
With the election of Howard Lee in 1968,
Chapel Hill elected the first black mayor in a
predominantly white community. Chapel Hill also
was the first southern town to appoint a black
town manager in a largely white population. Carr
boro broke the race barrier with the election of
Drakeford as mayor in 1979.
"Carrboro has come a long way," Cleveland
said. "We don't have the fence between Carrboro
and Chapel Hill. I think those walls have fallen

Dennis Darville preaches outside Lenoir Hall
...Pastor of Maranantha wants Gospel to be heard
Pit wall becomes pulpit
for spreading 'the Word9
By KAREN FISHER
He calls it "stump preaching," though
the wall beside the Pit doesn't really re
semble a stump.
He's on the wall near the steps of Le
noir Hall almost every sunny day. One
hand clutches a floppy, leather Bible, the
other he uses to emphasize his words.
People walk by. A few stop to listen. Oc
casionally one will kneel and the preacher
will step down to pray with him.
Many people ignore him, some sneer at
him, a few listen to him, but most would
agree that Dennis Darville, 25, makes
When asked why he does it, his answer
is simple: "It's a command I do it out
of obedience to God."
He quotes the Bible: "Whoever will
call upon the name of the Lord will be
saved." Because most students aren't
"busting down the doors" of traditional
churches, many never hear the Gospel of
Jesus Christ, Darville said.
"How are they gonna hear about it
without a preacher?" he asked.
And the Gospel the good news that
Jesus Christ died for our sins and if we re
pent and believe in him we will have eter
nal life is what Darville preaches.
His voice is loud and his Southern ac
cent is distinct. But people who think he
preaches "fire and brimstone" are mis
taken; they make assumptions without
stopping to listen, he said.
"I don't negate hell; there's a place
called hell. But I'm not preaching a mes
sage of doom; I'm preaching a message of
hope and victory in Christ Jesus.
"I see a generation of students frus
trated and desperately looking for the
truth," he said. "(They are) lonely, hurt,
rejected, and I know that there's no other
answer outside of a personal relationship
with the Lord.
"Jesus is the sum total of what God is
doing. Heaven is a reality and forgiveness
is available. (Jesus) is worthy of our hon
or and total obedience."
Darville is pastor and director of Mara
nantha Ministries in Chapel Hill. Mara
nantha, which means "Come Lord Jesus"
in Greek, is a nationwide organization
whose objective is "to establish a New
Testament church on every major campus
in the world."
One of Maranantha's goals, Darville
said, is to "educate university students
that God's principles are applicable to ev
ery area of our lives and they work."
"Christianity is applicable to our cul
ture. It's the answer for life now. It is ev
ery answer for society's needs. Our soci
ety's never had better technology, but
morally we're bankrupt. This nation has

"Most people would have me wear a
potato sack and sandals," he said, "But
money is hot evil; it's the love of money
that's evil." He adds that many of his
clothes were gifts. "I've got rich
friends," he said smiling.
. His eyes grow serious. "God's not so
much concerned with the appearance of
the outer man. God's concerned with the
appearance of our hearts."
But the young man was not always so
interested in God's concerns. He was rais
ed a Southern Baptist, but he was not
really a Christian, he said.
"I devoted my life to golf all the way
through high school and college," he

Fumdimg, procedures plague Chapel Thrill
By DAVID LAMBERTH
Although Chapel Thrill 1982 was financially suc
cessful, with more than $23,000 made in profit, the
possibility of a concert of that scale next year is almost
non-existent because of financial considerations among
Chapel Thrill has been hampered this year by the
financial laws of the Campus Governing Council. The
committee's funds are currently frozen because of at
least 10 late requisitions until May 3. This consitutes the
second such freeze within a week. The committee also
violated treasury laws Saturday by disbursing money
without going through appropriate channels.
Chapel Thrill Committee Chairman Wes Wright said
Student Government should not coordinate Chapel
Thrill. "I think if you want to run Chapel Thrill, it needs
to be a separate organization. It doesn't have anything to
do with government ... I don't like the CGC laws. It
takes too long (to requisition money) ... I just don't see
why they didn't exempt us from all the rules."
If Chapel Thrill were not to be run by Student
, Government, a viable alternative would appear to be the
Carolina Union. The Union sponsored Chapel Thrill's
predecessor, Jubilee, from 1963 to 1971.
"Every year it . was successful," said Larry Ellis,
1981-82 Union president. "The reasons it was discon
tinued was financing! Chapel Thrill's budget of $150,000
is (equal to) the entire Union budget. That kind of ex
penditure would jeopardize an entire year's program
ming. "In addition, it is simply incredibly alien to the type of
structure we work under. A big concert is a single event
that would tunnelvision a committee. We wouldn't take
on Chapel Thrill."
If Student Government sponsors a Chapel Thrill con
cert next year, the maximum amount of money it could
borrow from the General Reserve is $100,000 as com
pared to $142,000 this year, said Charlie Madison, CGC
Finance Committee Chairman. The $100,000 includes
profit from this year's concert, which now is in the
"There's not enough money to do this same show
again," Wright said. "Whether students will settle for
something less, I don't know."
Student Body President Mike Vandenbergh is in
vestigating a proposal to use interest from profits of
Chapel Thrill to finance "need-based scholarships for
graduates or undergraduates." This would reduce the
General Reserve money available to Chapel Thrill next
year by an amount equal to that of the profits. Thus
Chapel Thrill would only have approximately $75,000
available if the CGC decides to fund it next fall.
Vandenbergh cited benefits of the scholarship as op
posed to the drawback of reduction of the General
Reserve. "Benefits are that it will help offset the finan
cial aid crunch and will also forestall the idea that Stu
dent Government is in the concert business to make a
'I believe it would be possible to have a Chapel Thrill
concert while providing financial aid for students," he
said. "What's important is that we find bands attractive
to students and recognize we're working on a tighter
The Chapel Thrill Committee has violated treasury
laws this year in several ways. The committee's funds are
currently suspended because of late requisitions received
Under treasury laws, all expenses must be requisition
ed prior to their incurrence; otherwise they are con
sidered late. Upon the fifth late requisition, the
organization's funds are suspended for as long as the
CGC Finance Committee deems necessary.
"Their operation has been shut down for the week,"
said Rochelle Tucker, outgoing student body treasurer.
"They had 10 or 11 late requisitions last week."
The committee also violated another treasury law. Ac
cording to treasury laws, all organizations receiving Stu
dent Government funds must deposit all revenues,
regardless of source, into the SAFO account.
"On the day of the show, we paid over $50,000 cash
money," Wright said. "We didn't have time to requisi
tion." The money, received from sales of outlet ticket
sales places and day of show revenues, was spent to pay
Hall and Oates their percentage ($15,000), for rental cars
for Joan Jett, and to the caterer," Wright said.
According to treasury laws, violations shall result in
the freezing of funds. In addition, any person or persons
responsible for repeated or serious violations of the
treasury laws shall be subject to prosecution (for an ho
nor code violation). '
But Student Government officials downplayed the
violations. "I don't think we could be overly angry with
the way he spends money on the day of the show,"
Madison said. "I think he has to have a certain amount
of license ... with concerts you have to scramble," he
"There's no way. We owed Hall and Oates $15,000.
We couldn't tell them to wait," Wright said.
Vandenbergh cited CGC Finance Committee suspen
sion of the treasury laws in funding Chapel Thrill, a
social event, as justification for the violation. He also
said that it was up to the Finance Committee to define
"serious and repeated violations."
But Tucker disagreed. "Just because it's a social event
doesn't exclude it from other laws," she said. "They
didn't tell the student body treasurers of SAFO that they
had suspended the treasury laws."
lack Ink9 budget cut blamed on misunderstanding
By KYLE MARSHALL
The Black Student Movement budget
request for the Black Ink may have been
cut 26 percent in the Campus Governing
Council's budget hearing because of a
misunderstanding, BSM and CGC of
ficials said this week.
A misunderstanding between the CGC
and BSM occurred because of the
1981-82 Black Ink budget allocation and
the transfer of funds to other BSM acti
vities, said BSM Treasurer Anthony
At its full budget hearing April 17, the
CGC voted to allocate $6,000 to the
Black Ink (as part of the BSM budget),
which finances about 12 issues. The BSM
had originally requested $8,160 for the
"Last year's CGC allocated enough
funds for 18 issues to be printed during
the 1981-82 year," Hughes said. The
amount allocated for printing and pub
licity, which covers almost all Black Ink
expenses, was $9,608. Of this amount,
about $7,500 was actually spent, neces
sitating a transfer of funds, he said.
The CGC had information which
stated that last year's budget was for 14
"It was written in last year's budget
that enough was given for 18 issues,"
Hughes said. "But before next' year's
budget proposal went before the (CGC)
Finance Committee, I took responsibility
for cutting it (the 1981-82 budget) to 14
issues. I informed the full CGC in the
meeting that I had done this."
Hughes said the transfers were neces
sary because not enough issues had been
printed this year. "Since the last issue
(April 27) will be the 13th one, we had to
transfer $850 to the BSM for two fund
raising activities. During the full council
meeting, many of the CGC members
were really concerned about this
transfer." Hughes said the amount
originally transferred was $700 but was
later raised to $850.
CGC member Allan Chiulli (District 7)
said the CGC was informed that last
year's Black Ink budget was allocated
enough funds for 14 issues.
"No one from the BSM or the CGC
verified the information, so it's possible
that some of it was presented incor
rectly," he said. "They (the BSM) had an
opportunity to speak at the meeting, so
it's their fault if the wrong information
was not disputed. Some CGC members
may have voted differently if they, had
been correctly informed."
Chiulli cited an apparent lack of com
munication between the BSM and the
CGC. He said Black Ink editor Ramona
Brown was asked to supply information
concerning the amount of funds spent
and the number of issues published, but
she failed to answer the questions direct
ly. "We never got straight figures," he
said. "The figures discussed within the
context of the discussion were that the
Black Ink had been funded for 14 issues
but had printed only five. I thought this
information was correct.

CGC votes to fund station;
XYC to buy satellite dish
By ALISON DAVIS
In its last meeting of the semester, the
Campus Governing Council alloted
$7,000 to WXYC for a satellite dish and
postponed voting to approve the
1982-1983 Undergraduate Honor Court
appointees until the summer CGC can ex
amine the appointees more closely.
By purchasing a satellite dish, WXYC
will eliminate $1,200 of its wire service
charge, CGC; Finance Committee
Chairperson Charlie Madison (District
23) told the council. The dish will pay for
itself in about five years, he said.
The satellite dish also could be used by
other campus organizations, Madison
said. "It's very possible the DTH could
be hooked up to this also." "The poten
tial for the future is rather wide and
Student Body President Mike
Vandenbergh. said he was not sure the
dish should be purchased this year
because it would take money out of the
General Reserve, decreasing the amount
available for a Chapel Thrill concert next
year. He said he did not want to be in the
position of having only $80,000 to allot
for Chapel Thrill next fall.
Madison said about $124,540 would be
left in the General Reserve after the ceil
ings were set for subsequent appropria
tions and capital expenditures, leaving
about $100,000 for Chapel Thrill. Part of
that about $25,000 needs to be unen
cumbered, he said.
"It's a safety factor in case something
unexpected happens," he said.
"I know this is not Chapel Thrill, but
this is $7,000 from the General Reserve,"
he said. "This looks like a good invest
ment in the long run, but I question
whether this is the year to do it.".

Wednesday, and Argentina's navy was reported in the zone ready to fight and the
United States warned the situation had reached a critical point.

Reagan, O'Neill discuss budget
WASHINGTON (AP) President Reagan met with House Speaker Thomas P.
O'Neill Jr. -and other congressional leaders for "make or break" budget negotia
tions Wednesday, but officials on both sides said they saw scant hope for salvaging
a grand budget compromise.
The private talks were aimed at producing agreement on a plan to reduce
Reagan's budget and bring the federal deficit below $100 billion next year. Without
action by Congress, officials say the deficit will be $182 billion in 1983 and $233
billion in 1985.
UN approves Palestinian statehood
UNITED NATIONS (AP) Over bitter American protest, the General Assembly
on Wednesday adopted a resolution for Palestinian statehood that condemned the
United States' support for Israel. That plan, if approved by the Security Council,
would have Israel transfer the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip through
the United Nations to the Palestine Liberation Organization to form the territory of
a Palestinian state.
