In a special meeting Wednesday night, the Campus
Governing Council unanimously authorized a student
referendum to raise the Student Activity Fee by $1.25
per student per semester.
The referendum will appear on the ballot in the Feb.
8 campus elections.
The bill almost never came to a vote when the CGC
lost its quorum and had to reschedule the meeting until
later in the evening when quorum could be met.
The quick decision came in the second session of the
meeting, which began four hours later. And the sec
ond meeting was delayed 30 minutes until the quorum
of 14 could be met.
At first it appeared that Wednesday's meeting
would be a repeat of last week's actions, when another
CGC member walked out of the meeting to break
quorum. This action successfully stalled a vote on
whether to put the fee increase referendum on the
After more than an hour of debate, CGC member
Phil Painter (District 19) left the meeting, purposefully
blocking a vote on whether to approve the referen
dum. Earlier in the meeting, Painter had been unsuccess
ful in amending the bill, which would have offered
students the additional choice of decreasing student
fees by $1.25 per person per semester.
The final referendum lets students vote either to
raise the fees by $1 .25 per semester or to keep them the

Two UNC students walking to the home basketball
game against N.C. State were offered $40 for their
tickets. They took the money.
"I had planned on going to the game," one of the
students said, "but for twenty bucks I decided to go
back to the dorm and watch it on TV."
Similar -instances. of students selling , their, tickets
were repeated at the next home game against 15uke.
Some students were openly offering to sell their tickets
and admitted that they had only picked up student
tickets in order to sell them.
The student scalpers said the prize tickets of this
season will be for the Virginia game on Feb. 10. Those
tickets, they said, could be worth as much as $50 each.

Serious management and operational deficien
cies exist within the Chapel Hill police and fire
departments. These conclusions, released Wednes
day, were made from a management audit of the
town government and housing authority.
The report, prepared by McManis Associates
Inc. of Washington, D.C., identified strengths and
weaknesses of both organizations, as well as mak
ing recommendations for correcting deficiencies.
Serious problems in the police department stem
from a complicated management structure,'
auditors said. The top eight management positions
in the police department could be reduced to five
sworn officers and one civilian position. The
report said this step would save the town more
than $50,000 a year.
Other problems in the department that were
identified as serious include:
Absence of planning or crime analysis func
. Outdated rules and regulations.
No record of current response time on calls.
Lack of a system for processing complaints
against officers. ,
Police Chief Herman Stone said he had no com
ment on the report's findings or recommendations
until he discussed the matter with his staff and the
The report also stated that although the fire de
partment was organized more efficiently than the
police department, the fire department still had
some management and operational deficiencies.
The most obvious problem identified by
auditors is giving the assistant fire chief the sole re
sponsibility of naming streets and renumbering
The fire chief was assigned this job to facilitate
police and fire departments in dispatching help.
The audit reported that this task was worth
while, but it should not be assigned to a position
that pays more than $20,000 a year. The assistant
fire chief spends most of his day driving around
Chapel Hill checking , house numbers and street
names, the report stated. .
McManis Associates recommended that this re
sponsibility be transferred to the planning depart
ment, and that the position of assistant fire chief

Painter was not present at the second session of the
Last week, CGC member Dan Bryson (District 18)
successfully amended the bill to include the third
choice of decreasing fees, but the bill was later amend
ed back to its original form. Just before a vote was
taken on that bill, Bryson left the meeting, also break
ing quorum. Bryson was not present at this week's
meeting because he was working, Painter said.
Giving the students the option of decreasing their
student fees was the only fair approach to the referen
dum, Painter said during the first meeting.
"If we really want to know what the students think,
we should give them the chance to say that they'll take
a cut in programs (offered by student organizations),"
But CGC member Dennis Bartels (District 10) said
that voting against a fee increase was really the same as
voting for a decrease "in real dollars" because of
inflation. The last fee increase was in 1977. - ' ;
Union President Wayne Plummer told the CGC
that while the Union was not "broke," it has been
forced to cut back on some programs and charge
admission to other programs such as Friday movies.
"The day will come, if a fee increase is not passed,
when you'll be charged for every film,'! he said. -
Plummer also stressed that cutting student fees
would bring definite changes in the Union's program
ming. "If you take away $1.25 per semester (per student),
I can pretty safely say that we will probably not be able
to present any forum lectures for free," he said. With
a cutback, there would also be extra charges for
that students obtain free worth big bucks, tempting
many students to make some extra money by selling

tickets can be resold for, but some University officials

Some University officials, however, question
whether any sale of a student ticket should be allowed.
Perry Morrison, president of the Carolina Athletic
Association which lobbies ticket issues on behalf of
students, said he thought that logically, selling student
tickets should not be allowed because those tickets are
paid for with student funds.. .
: ? Morrison explained that each student is charged an, ,
athletic fee of $25 per semester. This generates a fund
of more than a million dollars, much of which is used
toward the purchase of student tickets, he said.
When student tickets are scalped it means that some
students who wanted tickets to a game but could not
get them sit home while student seats, paid for with
student funds, are occupied by non-students.

CLEMSON, S.C. All good things
must come to an end.
But not in Clemson. The North
Carolina Tar Heels squeezed by the Clem
son Tigers to win their 15th straight with
an 84-81 ACC basketball victory in Little
john Coliseum Wednesday.
Strong play from Sam Perkins and
Michael Jordan lifted the Tar Heels over
the strong defensive Tiger squad.
"We didn't take very good care of the
ball," UNC coach Dean Smith said.
"But that's a lot of credit for the Clem
The Tigers' aggressive defense caused
13 North Carolina turnovers in the first
half.' However, the same aggressive
defense put UNC in the bonus 6:19 into
the first half. The Tar Heels capitalized
on this and shot 12 of 17 from the line.
Ail-American Perkins was able to split
the Clemson defense on the inside with
jump hooks and alley-oop passes from
Jordan and point guard Jim Braddock
for 14 first-half points.
"Opportunity kmocks," Perkins said.
"If we're open we take the shot."
While Perkins worked the inside, Jor
dan crashed the baseline for eight first
half points and found himself at the line
six times, knocking in eight of 11.
In the second half, the Tigers held the
first-ranked Tar Heels hostage for 8
minutes and 8 seconds. But Perkins
wasn't finished having his say. His re
verse layup with 3:43 left in the game
once again put North Carolina back into
the' driver's seat.
Perkins led the scoring with 30 points
and 10 rebounds. Jordan added 24 points
and seven rebounds. Braddock had nine
assists and was eight-of-eight at the free
throw line. -
"Just a matter of concentration
(shooting free throws)," Braddock said.
' ' It's a challenge. And the way Clemson's
fans are, it's good to shut them up."
With the win over Bill Foster's Tigers,
jsiorth Carolina improved its ACC record
tcTTCTand 18-4 overall. Clemson further
mired itself in the basement of the ACC
with a 1-7 record, 7-14 overall.
But despite, the T5-game winning
streak, Smith remains his modest self.
"We just have a lot of work to do,"
Smith said. "I don't know if we're No. 1
in the country, but I know we're top-20."
Monroe said, g that he has had experience
with all levels cf Student Government, having
worked his way up through the organization.
Reckford said that the -student body president
has three main duties: crgorJzir.g the executive
branch of Student Government, voting as a
member of the Campus Governing Council, and
representing the study body to the town and the
administration. He added that his program of
establishing a reading room for students on
financial aid was among his top priorities.
Reckshun said he proposed abolishing the
executive branch of Student Government because
it has wasted student fees.
"1 just want peer.!? to think about the office of
student body prcldent," Reckshun said. "In
other words, ral;; h:il, paity and ct off like a
