CGC committee to ask for study of BSM finances
By CHARLES ELLMAKER
In light of numerous late requisitions, the
Campus Governing Council Finance Commit
tee voted Wednesday to ask the Audit Board to
conduct an investigation into the finances of the
Black Student Movement.

Student Body Treasurer Brent Clark said
As of Wednesday night, the BSM had in
curred six late requisitions, three of which were
for expenditures for the BSM's homecoming
Coronation Ball, Clark said Wednesday. Two
more expenditures for the dance will be
declared late when they are processed, he said.
Of the six already incurred, two have been

Chairperson Wende Watson, told the commit

mediately if the Audit Board's report showed
that the BSM's finances were in order.
Finance Committee Chairperson Charlie
Madison (District 23) said the Audit Board
would probably begin its investigation next
week in order to give new BSM Treasurer
David Hogan an opportunity to familiarize
himself with the BSM books. Hogan has been
BSM treasurer for about two weeks.
Problems arose with the BSM finances earlier
in the semester when Watson and several other
BSM members requested that $1,700 be
transferred from the Black Arts Festival-Black
History Month and Gospel Choir expense
categories to a social category to cover expenses
incurred through the Coronation Ball. The

Madison said the requisitions probably
would not have been so late if the BSM had-had
"a forma treasurer, i -
"They probably would have applied for the
transfer at least two weeks before they did, and
so the requisitions probably wouldn't have been
late," Madison said Thursday.
"Functions in the BSM are so decentralized
that many people have no knowledge of pro
cedures. So when there's no treasurer, they get
lost. Because they've had so many treasurers, a
lot of the information has gone by the wayside.
Fonville said the Central Committee
members incurred the expenses because they
didn't know proper procedures. "Most people
of this or any other organization, when they
don't know something, will just go out and get
it. It's a natural thing to do."
Fonville said at the meeting that the Central
Committee had been informed of the Treasury
Laws, but had forgotten them. "It's not a fault
with the structure of the BSM and it's not.
(Watson's) fault, either," he said. "When we
delegate authority to the committee members,
we shouldn't be breathing down their necks
while they're trying to get things done. Besides,
it's no one else's business to know the Treasury
Laws except the treasurer." t
Fonville said Thursday that he did not think
the requisitions should have been counted late
because "no contracts had been signed and no
bills had been received."
But Clark said that it was possible to incur an
expense without ever signing a contract.
Before the late requisitions were incurred,
questions were raised about the state of the
BSM finances when the $200 Gospel Choir por
tion of the $1,700 transfer for the dance could
not go through because the choir had only
about $60 left in its travel account. .
Madison said that Watson assured the
Finance Committee when applying for the
transfer that all funds used for the dance would
be returned to their original categories. "They
told us they would make more than $1,700 on
the ticket sales for the dance," he said. ,
The BSM spent about $1,700 on the dance,
but only received about $180 through ticket
sales, Madison said. CGC Speaker Pro Tern
James Exum (District 15) said about 60 people
attended the dance.
Fonville disputed Madison's claim that
$1,700 was spent on the dance, but Hogan said
he could not quote a specific amount because
he had not seen the books.
Madison said the BSM had reversed its
priorities. "Right now what all this means is
that the Black Arts Festival-Black History
Month program, which was first on their priori
ty list, is wiped out unless they can make up the
' $1,520 they lost in the dance," Madison said.
In other business, the Finance Committee
granted a subsequent appropriation to Hender

Springfest, HRC's spring concert.

(District 18) supported Springfest and said it

program that had "maximum output of stu

The Finance Committee also granted a
subsequent appropriation of $193 to the
Association of Women Students to pay the

AWS Chairperson Rebecca Tillet said the
organization worked out a deal with Student
Government's Chapel Thrill Committee last
year by which AWS would sell concessions dur
ing Chapel Thrill for a fee of $225 if the AWS
members would pay for their admission tickets.
Tillet said AWS asked the Chapel Thrill
committee not to pay AWS until after May 15
so that the money they would make selling con
cessions would not revert to the General
Reserve. Chapel Thrill nevertheless paid AWS
before the deadline, and the money did revert
to the General Reserve.
"In effect, what we did was pay $8.50 each
so that we could work during Chapel Thrill for
Student Government," Tillet said.

did not revert to the General Reserve last year,

MOSCOW The new Soviet leaders, faced with a transfer
of Kremlin power following the death of President Leonid I.
Brezhnev, on Thursday named former KGB chief Yuri V. An
dropov to head a committee planning a state funeral for the
man who ruled the Soviet Union for 18 years.
They announced that Brezhnev would be buried Monday
beside the Kremlin wall on Red Square and that a four-day
period of national mourning would begin Friday.
The Communist Party and government, indicating
Brezhnev's foreign policy would be continued, reiterated his
policy to "ensure detente and disarmament" with the West,
but warned it would deal a "crushing retaliatory strike" if
threatened by attack.
Brezhnev, 75, died Wednesday, apparently of a heart at
tack. The announcement was withheld for 26'2 hours but
when it was made, black-trimmed flags were raised quickly
around Moscow. Public reaction to Brezhnev's death was sur
President Reagan, in a condolence letter, called Brezhnev
"one of the world's most important figures for nearly two
decades," and said he looked forward to working with the
new Kremlin leadership ' 'toward an improved relationship with

day, but that a high-level U.S. delegation
No one was immediately named to suc
ceed Brezhnev as president, or to take over
the more important post as chief of the
Communist Party. Western experts tend to
believe the power vacuum will be filled in
the short run by a collective leadership in
cluding Andropov, 68, and long-time
Brezhnev aide Konstantin Chernenko, 71.
By naming Andropov to head the com
mittee planning an elaborate funeral
ceremony, the leadership immediately put Brezhnev
Andropov forward as a leading candidate.
Some sources said Chernenko ultimately might take over,
but that Moscow Ctommunist Party; boss Viktor V. : Grishin
could emerge as a compromise. Another man once considered
in line for a leading post, Andrei Kirilenko, is said to be in
poor health and to have retired from the Kremlin leadership.
The Soviet Central Committee, with more than 300
members, formally votes on a new party chief and the
parliamentary leadership chooses the president.
Until the succession question is settled, Western analysts
believe a collective leadership drawn from the 12-man Polit
buro will govern. Defense Minister Dimitri F. Ustinov,
Premier Nikolai A. Tikhonov and Foreign Minister Andrei A.
Gromyko are expected to play key roles.
The funeral committee chaired by Andropov decided
Brezhnev will be buried on Red Square after lying in state for
three days. Tass said the party Central Committee had ordered
the four days of mourning and the closing of all primary and
secondary schools for the burial.
It also ordered state enterprises throughout the country to
stop work for five minutes at the time of the burial; gun salvos
to be fired at that moment in Moscow, all provincial capitals
and several other Soviet cities; and factories and other
workplaces to sound their sirens for three minutes.
Andropov's committee decided that Brezhnev's body will be
viewed by the Soviet public and foreign dignitaries in the
columned hall of the House of Soviets, where the bodies of
Vladimir Lenin and Josef Stalin also lay in state.
The only other leader of the Soviet Union, Nikita S.
Khrushchev, was ousted by Brezhnev in 1964. He left office in

1983 Chapel Thrill:
a benefit concert?
By CHARLES ELLMAKER
The 1 983 Chapel Thrill may be a charity
event, Chapel Thrill Chairperson Ben Lee
told the Campus Governing Council
Finance Committee Wednesday night. -
Lee said holding a benefit concert for
Chapel Thrill would help inspire many
students to get "into the spirit of the con
cert." "If we turn Chapel Thrill into a benefit
rather than just a big beer party, the
University community will look brighter
upon it, the University administration will
:be much more favorable toward having
Chapel Thrill this year, and the students
will act more civilized during the concert,"
Lee said that he wanted to give Chapel
: Thrill a totally new image because of pro
blems concerning last year's concert,
especially low student turnout and damage
to Kenan Stadium.
Although Chapel Thrill has historically
been a large spring .concert for UNC
students, only about 35 percent of the peo
ple attending the concert last year attended
The University administration has ex
pressed great concern over the rowdiness
of last year's Chapel Thrill crowd. Several
concert goers were injured and the stadium
sustained about $1,000 worth of damage.
Lee saiu ne hoped the new image would
affect the students' sentiments about the
"We'd really like to see the students get
excited about Chapel Thrill this year," he
Lee also told the Finance Committee
that students would be drawn to Chapel ,.
Thrill by establishing a "carnival at
mosphere" during the week before the
concert. The week would include contests,
drama skits and other cultural functions
which would culminate in Chapel Thrill.
"By making Chapel Thrill a total school
function, and by establishing Chapel Thrill
as a benefit concert, we're hoping students
will want to go even if the bands we get
aren't their favorite ones," Lee said.
Student Body President Mike
Vandenbergh Said Thursday that he
thought the idea to have Chapel Thrill as a
benefit concert was a good one.
"I think that the overall image of
Chapel Thrill needs a boost," he said. He
said that having a benefit Chapel Thrill
would change the "hedonistic image" the
concert has had in the past with the
University and the town.
Vandenbergh said that the administra-.
tion had negative feelings about this
spring's Chapel Thrill.
"I'm really having to put on a sell job,"

Nationwide nuclear arms education
Panelists consider arms race options
By J. BONASIA
There are no easy solutions to the
nuclear arms race, said Dr. James Leutze,
chairman of the curriculum in Peace,
War and Defense. Leutze participated
in a faculty panel discussion Thursday
in the Union auditorium.
"We are going to have to move away
from the cheap security measures that
we've had in the past," Leutze said. By
"cheap security" Leutze said he was re-'
ferring to the relative inexpensiveness of
nuclear arms compared to the costs of
maintaining conventional forces and
'There are very few people who have
studied the issue that think we could
stop a successful Soviet attack with only
conventional weapons," he said.
"Some estimate they could overrun
Western Europe in one month without
the threat of nuclear weapons."
Col. Paul Grimming, chairman of the
department of aerospace studjes, said
he agreed with Leutze.
"Certainly one thing to realize is it's
not simply a matter of making the state
ment that you want parity," Grimming
said. "It's going to require an increase
in conventional forces if you want to
issue a no-first-use policy."
Grimming said the threat of nuclear
war was very real.
"We (military leaders) don't invent
the threat, it's there. The solution is to
face up to this threat."
Dr. Robert Greenberg, professor of
pediatrics and a member of Physicians
for Social Responsibility, said the threat
of nuclear war was "the ultimate health
"In the event that a single moderately
sized nuclear weapon of one megaton
were to explode over a city, the destruc
tion would be so great that (physicians)
would have virtually no resources to
even begin to . provide relief to
casualties," he said.
Greenberg said health professionals
must insist on all actions taken toward
reducing the threat of nuclear war.
Kenneth Wing, of the UNC School of
Law, said people have an obligation to
learn more about nuclear arms.
"If our choices are spending money
we don't have, or destroying ourselves,
then maybe it will be worth it to invest
some time and money to find new solu
tions," Wing said.
Leutze suggested reintroduction of
the draft as a quick way of strength
ening U.S. conventional forces while re
ducing the defense budget.
"Nuclear weapons are cheap, and
that's what has made them so popular
in the past," Leutze said.
Toward reducing the threat of
nuclear war, Leutze maintained, "It's
going to cost, and. it's going to cost
Greenberg said, "We must do every
thing in our power to keep both (Rus
sian and American) societies communi
cating on any level keep pushing to
break down the barriers."
In concluding the discussion, panel
mediator Dr. Lewis Lipsitz of the UNC
Political Science department, told the
audience of 50, "The important thing
to remember is that this is not the end of
the discussion, but the beginning of
Leutze favors disarmament, but
stresses expense of nuclear arms
By ROSEMARY OSBORN
"People don't realize that if nuclear weapons were re
moved from our defense system, defense expenditures would
go up," Dr. James Leutze, chairman of the Curriculum of
Peace, War and Defense said Thursday. "If you want to re
tain adequate defense you have to pay certain prices. In the
case of nuclear disarmament, the price is an increase in the
Leutze spoke in the Pit during the kickoff of UNC's parti
cipation in a nationwide day-long program designed to
educate people about the nuclear arms race and nuclear dis
armament. Leutze spoke in favor of nuclear disarmament, but he
stressed that the process for achieving this goal would be a
long and trying one, requiring lifetime dedication to the
"Concern about weapons is usually short-lived," Leutze
said. "People usually remain active for a few weeks or
months, and when nothing happens, they drift off to another
