Kevin Monroe was elected student body president Tuesday,
defeating Hugh Reckshun by more than 1,200 votes.
In run-off races also decided Tuesday night, Mark Dalton edg
ed Henry Miles in the contest for Residence Hall Association
president and Padraic Baxter defeated Debby Flowers in the race
for Carolina Athletic Association president.
Voter turnout was higher than expected as 4,943 students voted
in the student body president race, said Elections Board Chair
man Stan Evans. About 1,000 fewer students voted Tuesday than
on Feb. 8.
Evans attributed the turnout to the number of run-off s in cam
There were no serious irregularities in Tuesday's balloting,
Evans said; In the only reported incident, a Granville Towers resi
dent was denied an RHA ballot at the Scuttlebutt polling site, but
the Elections Board corrected the problem.
In Morrison Residence Hall, the site of irregularities in the Feb.
8 election, voters' signatures exactly matched counted ballots,
Evans announced to a round of applause in Gerrard Hall, where
the returns were tabulated. In the Feb. 18 campus elections, 510
votes were cast at Morrison but only 173 votes were registered. As
a result,, the Elections Board called the new election.
At the other 18 polling sites Tuesday, registered votes matched
counted ballots almost exactly, differing by no more than three
votes in any one place, Evans said.
After what appeared to be a close race early in the evening as
the graduate student vote came in, Monroe eventually emerged
with a strong lead to win the race 3,099 votes to 1,811 votes, or
62.7 percent of the vote. Evans said the board would certify the
Monroe carried 17 of the 19 voting districts, losing to Reckshun
only at the law school and the medical school.
Reckshun ended the evening with 36.7 percent of the vote.
There were 33 write-in votes for student body president.
Monroe arrived at Gerrard Hall in time for Evans to announce
the unofficial vote tallies.
"I'm just glad it's over," Monroe said. He had not been confi
dent about winning, he said. -
Reckshun's influence in the election would not fall on deaf
ears, Monroe said. v
"A statement was made and I'll take it into consideration,"
Monroe said. "I won't ignore it, it can't happen again."
Reckshun said that he did not consider his defeat Tuesday night

The Asodated Pica
WASHINGTON President Reagan gave his
first public blessing to a Bultibillion package of
emergency jobs and recession relief Tuesday, as
Republicans moved to protect their party's $4.3
billion program from Democratic "tinkering."
Reagan conferred with Republican congres
sional leaders, who then cautioned that adding
provisions opposed by the president and more
spending could sink the entire effort to pass
emergency jobs legislation quickly.
The House Republican leader, Robert Michel
of Illinois, said the GOP program could provide
the first of "several hundred thousand jobs" by
"We must resist build-on, pump-up, Christmas-tree"
legislation, said Senate Majority
Leader Howard H. Baker Jr. of Tennessee, who
told reporters that departing from what Reagan
sees as "socially useful jobs ... would sabotage
A few hours later, the Republican chairman of
the Senate Appropriations Committee, Sen.
Mark Hatfield of Oregon, introduced a $4.4
billion proposal of his own. It included $350,000
for summer youth employment, women and in
fant feeding programs and weatherization of
low-income housing three programs missing
from the White House bill but mentioned by
The Democrats, said House Majority Leader
Jim Wright of Texas, "have no intention of
sabotaging the package."
House Democratic leaders insisted, however,
that they may want to revise the president's pro

one program to another, or by increasing the

Ethics Committee gives Vogler choice after hearing complaint
By CHARLES ELLMAKER
The Campus Governing Council Ethics Committee
Monday told CGC Speaker Bobby Vogler (District 14)
that if he did not resign by Thursday night's CGC
meeting, the committee would ask the council to censure
- or verbally reprimand him.
That action came in response to Vogler' s move from his
Granville Towers district at the beginning of this semester
into the Chi Psi lodge, which is in District 23. .
According to the CGC bylaws, each council member
must live in the district to which he was elected during his
term of office.
Vogler said Tuesday that he was not entirely satisfied
with thejhree-member committee's decision, but conced
ed that it could have been worsen '
"They could have asked to expel me," Vogler said.
The action also was somewhat unfair, he said, because
the Ethics Committee had not acted ori the "inadequacies
of other members," such as those who were frequently
absent from council meetings.
But Ethics Committee member Phil Painter (District 19)
said that "just because we haven't taken action in the past
doesn't mean we shouldn't take it now."
Ethics Committee member Lori Dostal (District 5) said
that because the committee had not prosecuted other
members in the past (for not attending meetings), the
committee "really couldn't throw him out."
But Dostal said Vogler's change of residence was more
serious than other infractions because of his position as
"It made me really mad that Bobby didn't live in his
district because he's supposed to be a leader," she said.
"The people who are in power are supposed to be setting
a good example. I don't think I could ignore the fact that
he... broke the law."
. Because he was misrepresenting himself as a member
from his elected district, Vogler's infraction was more
severe than missing meetings, Dostal said.

RALEIGH UNC basketball coach
Jennifer Alley is going to be turning this
one over in her head for a long time.'
Literally. It's awfully hard to win without
the ball. Ask the No. 20 Tar Heels, who
fell victim to a voracious pack of women
from No. 18 N.C. State Tuesday "night in
round two of an intrastate basketball
"The major difference was we didn't
take care of the basketball," Alley said in
" this week's understatement of the century.
While State was handling the roundball
with the possessive paternalism of the Big
Bad Wolf in Little Red Riding Hood's
house ripping away and smiling all the
. while UNC was playing hot potato with
a leather-covered spud. The Tar Heels
turned the ball over 21 times to State's
- The Wolf pack went into the locker
room at halftime nursing a nine-point lead
with the score set at 51-42; but used their
miserly 2-3 zone after the intermission to
widen the gap.
UNC's Tresa Brown scored 16 of her
team-high 19 points in the first half, but
was effectively shut down by the
Wolfpack's inside-oriented defense. Kathy
Crawford added J8 for the Tar Heels,
while Pam Leake and Pam Hammond
chipped in a total of 16 apiece. Henrietta
Walls grabbed 1 1 points and 1 1 rebounds
in the losing cause.
For State, it was Angie Armstrong
leading the way with a career-high 28
points. Linda "Hawkeye" Page scored 20
points, and Robyn Mayo came off the
bench for 11 points, six rebounds, and
four steals of her own.
The Wolfpack remains at the top of the
conference standings with a 9-1 record,
while the Tar Heels fall to 7-3 in the ACC.
Both teams are 17-6 overall.
Editor's note This story begins a three-day
examination of UNC as seen by the various ele
ments of the community: the faculty, students
The following are excerpts from a 90-minute
dialogue conducted by Kimberly Kleman among
seven UNC professors concerning the state of
teaching at UNC. Professors who participated
include: Richard Hiskey, professor, chemistry;
Jane Brown, assistant professor, journalism;
Gerald Unks, associate professor, education;
Jeffrey Obler, associate professor, political
scienceiJuJia Wood, associate professor, speech
communication; Weldon Thornton, professor,'
English; and Edward Galligan, associate profes
DTH: How would you describe the reputation
of this University?
Hiskey -1 think it's clear that the University
has an international reputation. I wish you all
could have seen this place in '58. It was the
backwater. . It was a real regional university
then. There was strength in certain areas, but it
was a regional strength.
DTH: To what extent does the University "in
breed" its faculty?
Obler When I first came here, 75 percent
of the faculty were from North Carolina. And
now there's not one faculty member in the de
partment from North Carolina. So there's been
a dramatic change.
DTH: Is this change in policy the major reason
for the University's improved reputation?
Hiskey No, but I'd say that the quality of
the University is related to its faculty. By virtue
of a lot of things it has managed to attract and
retain a loyal group of really good faculty. One
thing that characterizes the faculty here I think
is a real loyalty to the institution and to the
state. That's a very impressive thing.
DTH: Eighty-five percent of undergraduates
here are from North Carolina. Is that percen
tage too large?
Brown I think at the undergraduate level it
might be. I think that having that kind of quota
puts a cramp on some of the viewpoints that
you'll find in an undergraduate class.
. Unks It builds an unfortunate stereotype
amongst the 85 percent that are North Caroli
nians. Competition is so keen among the out-of-state
students to get in that it's easy for a North
Carolinian to generalize that all Yankees are rich
and smart. I know they're not.
Obler Most of these people from North
Carolina who are here as undergraduates want
to be here and they have a very positive attitude
toward their experience here. Among the public
schools here, this is the most sought-after uni
versity. In terms of the mental health of this
institutionj the fact that so many of the under
graduates want to be here this was their first
choice and their dream contributes a great
deal to the relatively healthy atmosphere.
DTH: How would you describe average stu
dents here? What are their priorities?
Brown They're the most polite students
I've ever taught. I find that it's not necessarily
that they're not thoughtful or even argumenta
tive. It's simply that they are deferential to the
professor. You have to encourage them to speak
out and to be opinionated about issues. They're
unlike Northern students, who are right up
there at your throat every moment. It's a more
Thornton My undergraduate honors stu
dents are first-rate. I have more trouble charac
terizing the average student. I don't find the
keen intellectual interest there that I would like
to find and it's not just a matter of polite
ness, either. I find complaints from among our
better students about the quality of our intel
lectual atmosphere generally on the campus.
Obler I'm sometimes very depressed walk
ing across campus listening to the conversations
of the undergraduates because it's so rare to
even hear them talking about any ideas about
a book, about a film, about politics. I find this
to be somewhat disheartening. I think that in
some respects the University is negligent. We
feel our obligation ends outside of the class
room. I noticed that even walking on the cam
pus at Duke that it's more common for me to
hear students talking about ideas than it is for
me to hear that at Chapel Hill. I'm upset by
Wood But it comes from both sides. I
think the faculty often aren't seen as being in
terested in sitting down and talking about a
book or a movie such as Gandhi for instance.
We're seen as taking a philosophy with students
that the classroom time has ended and that's not
our subject matter anyway so let's forget that. I
think there is a sense of those sides, which is
really sort of sad because it suggests that maybe
both the students and some of the faculty would
like more of that kind of atmosphere.
Unks I also believe there is a layer of first
class honor students whose minds I would com
pare with any college in the United States. And
then a great body who I believe have taken this
notion of the beer drinking capital of the world
all too seriously.
Thornton The beer drinking capital of the
world ... Some of those stereotypes seem to me
to have a kind of a force here that I don't really
understand. I don't know why they have the
kind of appeal to the student body that they
have but I think that sort of thing has persisted.
I never have understood why talking about
ideas hasn't had any better reputation around
DTH: How could that type of atmosphere be
Brown In journalism last semester there
were a couple of students who sensed this need.
I think it's acute in journalism because we have
been focusing primarily at the undergraduate
level on turning out - working ; journalists.
There's a real problem sometimes to get any sort
of other content into those courses. These stu
dents started a seminar where they brought like
minded students and professors to talk. But it's
really difficult for students to organize that sort
of thing where it's done all on their own time.
Obler I think it has to be a different kind
of attitude from the part of the students and
faculty. This involves a very subtle shift in per
spective which I don't think we can face because
of the various pressures on the faculty to do
