renovation of Chase Cafeteria before the
December meeting of the UNC Board of
Trustees, the Food Service Advisory Com

meeting Monday to recommend that ex

The FSAC meeting, originally sche
duled for Thursday, was delayed until
Monday to let the committee consider
results of food service surveys distributed
on South Campus by Student Government
and the Residence Hall Association.
Of the 737 South Campus students
questioned, 46 percent said that they
preferred the expanded full food service at
Chase the most expensive of the four
options presented on the survey.
About 26 percent of the respondents
opted for the limited menu option, which
would offer complete meals but with little
Since the FSAC is an advisory body, its
decision is not final, FSAC Chairperson
T.J. Arant told the group Monday. The
recommendation will be sent to Wayne
Jones, acting vice chancellor for business
and finance, for review before being sent
on to Fordham. From there, the proposal
will go before the UNC Board of Trustees,
the UNC Board of Governors and finally
to the General Assembly, which must ap
prove any appropriations for the renova
tions. Monday's meeting was characterized by
differences between University administra
tion officials present and several Student
Government representatives on the com
mittee. Controversy emerged over pro
jected cost figures for the project and what
level of expansion should take place in the
Students on the committee were met
with a surprise when informed by Charles
Antle, associate vice chancellor for
business, that the estimated cost of renova
tion for Chase's i expanded full service was
higher than previously projected. Up to
this point, the figure of $1.1 million had
been established as the renovation cost.
Antle said that Gordon Rutherford,
UNC planning director, had informed him
that the figure for such renovations would
be closer to $1.6 million. The cost for a
limited menu cafeteria, which would,
resemble a "Porthole-type operation,"
would also be slightly higher, Antle said.
The difference in the figures estimated
for limited menu renovations resulted
from confusion over what type of service
"limited menu" entailed, said James
Cansler, associate vice chancellor for stu
The $600,000 difference in projected
cost for renovations for full service in
Chase resulted from additional space
needed for seating and kitchen facilities,
Antle said. Chase would require 500 seats
in order to support the expanded service,
University officials present at the FSAC
The increased cost might also mean a
student fee larger than the $10 previously
agreed upon, Cansler said. According to
discussion at the FSAC meeting, the fee
could go as high as $12.50.
But the necessity of additional added
space was met with doubt by several stu
dent representatives at the meeting.
Donald Beeson, former executive assis
tant to Student Body President Mike
Vandenbergh, was one of several students
who expressed disagreement with the full
service proposal. Vandenbergh was out of
town and unable to attend the meeting.
"I would rather see a demonstrated
need for the extra space before the money
is committed," Beeson said.
But Cansler said that he supported
renovating Chase for full service during all
three meals, but using only whatever level
Of service was needed to accommodate
South Campus students now.
"I like the idea of scaling the service to
the interests, demands and desires of peo
ple who will be eating there," Cansler said,
adding that it would be difficult to go back
and phase in facilities as needed.
Beeson added that FSAC student mem
ber Andrew Sutherland had said that past
history at Chase did not support the idea
that additional space would be used.
"I don't like making these assumptions
about usership," Beeson said. "It may
cost a little bit more in the long run (to add
facilities once a need is seen for them) but I
think it's worth it."
Student committee member Robin
Michaels also warned against such large
scale renovation at Chase.
"Before you go ahead and bite off more
than you can chew, make sure that, you
can use what you've got," Michaels said.
.In the end, a motion to recommend
expanded full service to Fordham passed
7-2. The two dissenting votes were cast by
student members Michaels and
'Sutherland.' '-""-T ? "
An additional motion from Cansler that
"the cost of renovations be kept as low as
possible and as near to the agreed upon
$10 fee per semester" also passed 6-0 with
the three student members abstaining.
After the meeting, Student Government
representatives in attendance expressed
dismay over the decision of the committee.
"I think we can. provide an effective
food option and not go overboard on
cost," Executive Assistant Charlotte
Fischer said, adding that it would require a
"phenomenal" demand from South Cam
pus students to fully utilize a cafeteria ex

New policy to be tough on cooking violations
By PAM DUNCAN
Students violating the cooking-in-rooms policy at UNC
next semester will face some stiff penalties, including
fines, probation and housing contract cancellation,
according to the final enforcement policy approved Friday
by Jody Harpster, director of University housing.
On-campus residents will receive copies of the policy to
day, Harpster said. "The policy is now in place and will be
fully implemented next semester," he said.
Under the new policy, students would receive a warning
and pay a $25 fine for the first violation of the cooking
policy. On the second offense, students would be charged
a $50 fine and receive a housing contract probation, and
on third offense, students' housing contracts would be
coaled. This thre possession,
of a prohibited appliance in a student's room.
If students are found using a prohibited appliance, a
two-step plan will be applied: a $50 fine and probation on
first offense, and eviction on second offense, whether the
student is using the appliance at the time or not.
In addition to approving the enforcement policy, Harp
ster also approved proposed renovations of snack bars in
Morrison and Hinton James residence halls next semester.
"The snack bars will be turned over to the University
dining service and hot food will be provided on a take-out
basis," Harpster said. Fines collected from enforcement
of the policy will go toward defraying the cost of these
The renovations would be completed over the
Christmas break and be ready for use when students
return next semester.
Harpster said money, would also go into additions to
dormitory kitchens, such as extra counter space and
microwave ovens. .
"We are trying to save students' ability to cook in their
rooms,"- Harpster said. "The next step if we can't stay
within these guidelines will probably be banning of all
cooking' ml&denrbms., - '
The enforcement policy regulating cooking in the
rooms will go into effect on Jan. 9, when dormitories
open for the spring semester, he said.
Kevin Monroe, chairman of Student Government's
Food ServiceHealth Affairs Committee, said the im
plementation of an enforcement policy would definitely
cause students to feel that the cooking policy is a perma
nent one, a view that Student Government has fought
"We aren't against an enforcement policy, we're just
against it at this time," he said. "We were under the im
pression that alternatives (to the cooking policy) would be
discussed before enforcement."
Student Government will continue to seek alternatives
to the current cooking policy banning use of high-heat ap
pliances in dormitory rooms, Monroe said.
"Maybe they (University housing) too can start looking
at alternatives (to the cooking policy) now that they have
an enforcement policy."
"I think it is important that we have a policy in place
and I would hope students would be supportive of a
policy that has the safety of the students in mind," said

Although storage for prohibited appliances will be pro
vided for students free of charge next semester by the
housing department, Harpster said he encouraged
' students to take the appliances home during the Christmas
break if possible.
UNC officials express concern over report
Percentage of black, women faculty down
By KYLE MARSHALL
In response to a gloomy report on minority and female
presence jat UNC issued last week by University
Chancellor Christopher C. Fordham III, faculty and ad
ministration officials expressed concern Monday over ef
forts to recruit black and female faculty.
"I very much share Chancellor Fordham's sense of
disappointment in the results of the report," UNC Affir
mative Action Officer Gillian Cell said Monday.
While the percentages of minority and female students
increased this semester, percentages for black and women
faculty decreased, according to the report.
Since "hiring is done at the department level, there is
the need for the academic departments to help achieve our
hiring goals," Cell said.
Harold Wallace, vice chancellor for University affairs,
said Monday that he was pleased with the University's
progress in recruiting minority students.
But he added that he was "greatly disturbed that we
didn't improve our record in recruitment and hiring of
Wallace noted three possible barriers to attracting a
greater percentage of minority faculty to UNC: limited
numbers of blacks with doctorates, a troubled economy
and the University's location.
"Clearly, we're up against poor representation among
blacks in certain fields and in the availability of Ph.D.s,"
he said. "A second factor would be' the current poor
economic times, complicated by the salary freeze (in
stituted by Gov. Jim Hunt for state employees).
"And we're hurt by our location in the South,"
Wallace said. "We'll have to deal with the stereotypes that
people around the nation might have of a Southern
"In spite of these difficulties, we need to redouble our
efforts to attract minorities and women to apply for facul
ty positions here," he said.
University officials have stated that there were at least
two main problems in increasing the percentage of blacks
in the faculty: a lack of potential black employees with
doctorates and an inability to identify applicants as being
But University English professor J. Lee Greene, a
member of the Black FacultyStaff Caucus, said those
problems were not substantial enough to explain the low
"... in hiring, the University departments tend to think that if they have
more than one (black faculty member), they have a crowd."
J. Lee Greene, English professor
Audreye Johnson, a professor in the UNC School of
Social Work and a member of the Black FacultyStaff
Caucus, said the problems reflected by the chancellor's
report were of concern to the University.
"The chancellor pointed out that this problem should
be shared by the entire University, and I agree," she said
Johnson also said the University was not making
enough of an effort to attract minority faculty.
"Obviously, the University is not doing all it can in hir
ing minorities," she said. "The various hiring units and
departments need to put forth efforts to make certain that
blacks and women are made available in the applicant
pools. And once the departments recognize minority and
female applicants, they should give priority to hiring
numbers of black faculty.
"If the University were committed, they would certain
ly be making improvements," he said Monday.
"It is true that the number of blacks with Ph.D.s are
less than whites," Greene said.
"But in hiring, the University departments tend to
think that if they have more than one (black faculty
member), they have a crowd."
Greene also said black applicants could indeed be easily
identified. "A simple phone call could identify the black
faculty who are out there," he said.
"You can often assume that a person is black from the
information given on his application," Greene added.
appeal board ruling d
enying admission to bar
By STACIA CLAWSON
The state Board of Law Examiners has refused to ;'
admit Alex Charns, a UNC Law School graduate, into
the North Carolina Bar Association because of his ar
rest during a March protest at Fort Bragg, the board
said in a letter earlier this month.
Charns was charged with blocking traffic at Fort
Bragg in a peaceful protest against the training of
Salvadoran soldiers there. He served about Vi weeks
of a three-month sentence before being placed on pro
bation. In late September, a three-member Board of Law
Examiners panel questioned Charns about the arrest
and ruled that he did not have the moral character to
become a lawyer.
Charns is appealing the board's decision Dec. 1 in a
closed hearing. ,
His case is unique. Never before in North Carolina
has a law school graduate been refused admittance in
to the bar because of civil disobedience, said Kenneth
Broun, dean of the UNC Law School.
"Alex is a person of good morals and credibility and
should be admitted into the bar," Broun said. "I even
filed an affidavit vouching for Charns' good
"I can't see any legal justification for not being ad
mitted into the bar," Charns said. "They (the Board
of Law Examiners) do not like my political views. I
was outspoken in law school. I think it happened out
of ignorance and fearfulness. They just did not
understand someone like me."
Charns said earlier this year the board allowed a
Buncombe County man who had been arrested in
Barnwell County, S.C., in peaceful, anti-nuclear waste
protests to receive a state law license.
"I think they may just be using me as an example.
But I think the public is outraged because now they
have gone too far," he said.
Daniel Pollitt, a professor at the UNC Law School,
said he thought the board had gone too far as well.
"Sure, lawyers must be moral with special obliga
tions. If someone is convicted of a crime, someone
should look into it," Pollitt said. "But he did it openly,
with plenty of notice for political interest.
"Alex is outspoken and has long hair. I'm sure
some examiners may have found this offensive," he
The only other time anyone else has almost been
denied admittance to the bar, Pollitt said, was during
the 1960s when a group of black law students par
ticipated in peaceful sit-ins in Chapel Hill restaurants.
They had a hearing concerning their arrests during the
sit-in, but were not denied the right to become lawyers.
The North Carolina Board of Law Examiners
Association refused to comment about the letter
Charns received notifying him of his Dec. 1 hearing.
In this letter the board said it was concerned about
Charns' arrest for blocking traffic at Fort Bragg and
his subsequent sentence. '
The board also said it was concerned about a state
ment Charns made saying he would violate the law
again if circumstances warranted it and another state
ment by Charns that he was going to Fort Bragg
specifically to be arrested.
Charns said the board misinterpreted his comments.
He said he told them he could not promise them he
was not going to break the law again. He said he was
acting out of conscience when he went to Fort Bragg
but did not go there specifically to break the law.
Charns, 26, has no prior arrest record except for. a
traffic ticket eight years ago.
Charns said about 365 law students have signed a
petition supporting him which he will use as evidence
at his hearing.
Frederick Franklin, secretary of legal education for
the American Bar Association in Washington, said it is
rare for someone to be denied becoming a lawyer
because of an act of civil disobedience.'
"Even in the '60s I don't think anyone was refused
admittance. Every state has its own rule that if you are
convicted of a felony you can be kept from the bar
because of moral character. Most states have excep
tions," he said.
Charns said although he was optimistic about his
hearing, he was concerned about some misconceptions
about his arrest.
"When I lectured at North Carolina Central
(University), they asked me if I really bit a policeman
and punched another one out. I did not. My arrest was
a non-violent one," he said.
Charns presently works at a law firm in Durham as
a law clerk. He is also a stringer for the New York
Times and a free-lance writer.
Charns said if the Board's decision was upheld, he
would appeal the case again. If he can never be a
lawyer, he will stick to writing and being a law clerk in
Durham, Charns said.
