Students seemed baffled and amused Wednesday afternoon when they encountered Don Styran, who calls himself
the "Modern Minstrel of Chapel Hill." Styron said he was from New Orleans, lives in his car and supports himself '
through donations from his listeners.

WASHINGTON President Reagan
spelled out on Wednesday an offer to cut
back on . the deployment of nuclear
missiles in Europe if the Soviet Union will
dismantle part of its intermediate-range
arsenal. He bemoaned Moscow's refusal
to scrap those weapons entirely, but said
that shouldn't "further darken our
search for peace."
Reagan proposed that the United
States cut back the planned installation of
Pershing II and cruise missiles late this
year if the Soviet Union agreed to reduce
the number of warheads on medium
range missiles throughout the world.
Both superpowers would be limited to
an equal . number of warheads on
medium-range weapons. Reagan did not
propose specific limits, and a senior ad
ministration official said that would be
open to negotiation.
Reaffirming his ultimate goal of
eliminating all medium-range missiles,
Reagan said, "It would be better to have,
none than to have some. But, if there
must be some, it is better to have few than
to have many." ;
Speaking to NATO diplomats invited
to hear his address, Reagan said, "If the
Soviets will not now agree to the total
elimination of these weapons, I hope they
will at least join us in an interim agree
ment that would substantially reduce
these forces to equal levels on both
Reagan said Jie was willing to consider
any serious alternatives put on the table
by Moscow. - ;
"Their failure to make such a proposal
is a source of deep disappointment to all
of us who have wished that these
weapons might be eliminated or at
least significantly reduced," Reagan said.
"But I do not intend to let this
shadow that has .been cast over the
Geneva negotiations further darken our
search for peace."
His speech was part of an intensified
campaign to win worldwide support -particularly
in Europe for U.S. arms
proposals and to put pressure on the
Soviets to move toward an agreement.
While Moscow had yet to offer a
specific response, U.S. arms expert Paul
Warnke said he doubted the Kremlin
would find Reagan's proposal very ap
pealing. "To the extent that it appears to call
for equality of warheads between the
United States and the Soviet Union, it
would mean that the Soviets . if they
made a 50 percent cut would then be
confronted with the entire deployment of
American ground-launched cruise

Quality delays 1 982 'Yack,'
distribution starts April 1 1
By JOEL BROADWAY
The long awaited 1982 Yackety Yack is
scheduled to be distributed starting April
H, after being nearly five months over
due. The Yackety Yack, which is on a fall
distribution plan, was originally scheduled
to return from the publisher in October
"Things went slow," explained Greg
Dinkins, editor of the 1982 Yack. "But it
wasn't worth it to publish before I had
the best of the materials together."
Dinkins said that the yearbook's pro
duction problems had been secondary in
the delay of the printing.
"Quality that's why we were held
up," Dinkins said.
The Yack's coverage of the 1982 school
year includes major speakers, concerts
and games, he said.
The NCAA basketball tournament
coverage was especially good, Dinkins
said. Along with the classic photo of the
winning shot are other pictures which
have appeared in Sports Illustrated, and a
first-hand account of what followed in
Chapel Hill, Dinkins said.
"It's a great story about the night of
the winning game," Dinkins said. In the
story, the night starts off with the nar
rator watching the game on television
with all his friends and ends with the wild
festivities of Franklin Street.
Since all groups and organizations
must buy their pages in the Yackety Yack,
Dinkins said he was disappointed thafthe
athletic department did not buy more.
The yearbook must depend on the in
come from patrons, the sale of the pages
to the athletic department and the com
mission the portrait company provides
when they are chosen to shoot student
Dinkins said that lack of money had
not been a problem. "I think we made
the most of the money we had," he said.
"When working with the print media,
there's no limit to what you can spend."
Dinkins said that his staff had been a
creative group of people, and the book
contained a lot of things he considered in
novations, "I don't think there are any sections in
the book that people will want to skip
over' he said. ' .
The biggest problems the staff en
countered were when photographers were
unable to meet deadlines, and the pro
duction manager left in the middle of the
year, Dinkins said.
Because the staff had very few veterans
returning, Dinkins said there was very lit
tle organizational structure at first. "We

The staff of the Yackety Yack tried
photo exhibits and slide shows to en
courage interest in the yearbook, Dinkins
said. But lack of interest in the yearbook
has caused sales and the number of por
traits taken to be low.
"People just aren't aware of how
meaningful it will be," Dinkins said..
The yearbook, which sold for $13.50,
was sold primarily by direct mail. Dinkins
explained that the UNC campus was too
large to depend on direct solicitation.

The Carolina Forensics Union received $4,000 for a trip to a
national tournament from the Educational Foundation Wed
nesday. The gift followed the Campus Governing Council's
denial of an appropriation last week to finance the trip.
The money was given to the Forensics Union after a request
' from Forensica Union member. Lori Young and a written re
quest from Bill Balthrop, director of foremics and assistant pn
fessor of speech communication, said Ernest Williamson, ex
ecutive vice president of the Athletic Association and Educa
The money is to be used to send nine undergraduates to the
American Forensic .Association's National Individual Events
Tournament, held April 9-1 1 at Weber States College in Ogden,
"We wanted to send this team to the national tqurnament,"
Williamson said. ' V.
"They approached us and we decided that it would be a good
thing for us to do since they are an academic part of the Uni
versity." Williamson said that support of student academic endeavors
was something that the Educational Foundation would like to
do more of in the future.
The Forensics Union sponsors students interested in speaking
events, such as speeches and interpretation of literature, as par
ticipants in individual events, said Robin Pulber, director of in
dividual events for the Forensic Union.
The union also sponsors the UNC Debate Team, made up of
students interested in argument and debate.
The CGC did provide the Forensics Union with enough funds
in early March to send the Debate Team to the National Debate
Tournament currently being held in Colorado Springs, Utah.
The Forensics Union's request to the CGC at that time was for
$6,200, while they received $2,200, Pulver said.
Balthrop stated in his request to Williamson that the CGC's
denial of funds for theindivddual events tournament was the
first in seven years.
"Efforts were made to obtain funding through the College of
Arts and Sciences and the vice chancellor of student affairs,
among others," Balthrop said.
"Only the most minimal of funds were available from these
sources, barely enough to cover the cost of one round-trip air
fare," he said.
The member of the Forensics Union were glad to receive the
funding, regardless of the source, said Jay Allison, head coach
of the Debate Team.
"We could have sent part of the individual events team and a
part of the Debate Team with the money from the CGC,"
"The money from the Educational Foundation gives
everyone that qualified a chance to go," she said.
The nine students who qualified for the national tournament
did so by competing at tournaments during the year and by
competing in the regional qualifying contest, Pulver said.

Lottery issue up for debate
By JAMES STEPHENS
RALEIGH The odds for a state lottery improved last week
when a state Senate subcommittee authorized two bills that en
dorse the idea of a state-run numbers game.
What began as a bill merely to study the feasibility of a lottery
has become a question of who will decide the fate of a North
One bill will leave the final question to the Legislature if
passed, while the other" would put the decision to North Caroli
nians in a 1984 referendum vote.
The senate will conduct a public hearing before deciding bet
ween the two bills. i ;
Sen. Richard W. Barnes, D-Forsyth, said that faced with only
the choice of cutting state funding or increasing taxes; the lot
tery is a creative alternative. i,5
Barnes, who sponsored the original Senate proposal, said,
"I'm convinced we can't rely on a built-in tax increase to
generate enough income."
The Legislature predicted early in the session that the budget
presented by Gov. Jim Hunt would place the state $100 million
in debt. -' ' ..
By a 2-1 ratio, North Carolinians favor the idea of a state-run
lottery, according to the results of the latest Carolina Poll con
ducted by the UNC School of Journalism.
Fifty-nine percent of the people contacted in the statewide
survey said they thought a lottery was a good idea for the state,
but only 55 percent said they Would participate in one if it was
held. Twenty-eight percent opposed the idea, while 13 percent
had no opinion.
The questions asked the 600 surveyed were: "Do you think a
state lottery would be a good idea or a bad idea?" and "If
North Carolina had a state lottery, would you participate or
Sen. Rachel G. Gray, D-Guilford, said the lottery decision
will be for many people both a financial and a moral issue. Gray
said that while manv North Carolinians oppose gambling
because of religious reasons, many look upon its cost as a "tax
ing of sin."
If a lottery is instituted, North Carolina will be the only
Southern state besides Maryland with a state-run lottery. Cur
rently, 15 states, most of them in the Northeast, have state-run
Rep. Austin M. Allran, R-Catawba, said, "The state has no
business with a lottery because it is gambling."
Allran said that the. state's sanctioning' of a lottery to raise
revenue would indicate a sad state of affairs in the North ;
Carolina economy. : j
Sen. Cary D. Allred, R-Alamance, said that he would not
support a numbers lottery until he was convinced it would
decrease the amount of organized crime and the number of peo
ple who participate in illicit numbers rackets.
While Allred said he did not believe a lottery is gambling
anymore than raffles or church bingo are gambling, he said that
the state would be encouraging the "something-for-nothing syn
drome" by sponsoring a lottery.
States with lotteries received profits ranging from $3.7 million
in Maine to $500 million , in New. Jersey, according to the
legislative report. The average net amount received by the states
through the lottery was $19 for every state resident. The average
annual amount spent by lottery participants in the 15 states in
1982 was $98.
Common criticisms of the lotteries are that they are played
predominantly by the poor and that organized crime will in
filtrate the lottery system.
However, according to the report research by government
and private agencies reveals that "the poor buy proportionately
less than their representation in the population."
Also since the inception of state lotteries in 1964, according to
the report, there has never been a single instance of organized
crime infiltrating the lotteries.
Of each lottery dollar spent 45 cents is returned in prize
money to winners, 40 cents to the state's general fund, 10 cents
to the marketing of the lottery and the support of a lottery
board of between 50 and 100 people, and 5 cents to retailers who

Move over Phi Beta Kappa there
is a freshman honor society at UNC of
Phi Eta Sigma, a national organiza
tion like Phi Beta Kappa, has been in
existence at UNC since the late 1940s.
With more than 200 members active
at one time, the society does not simp
ly rest on its laurels. Each semester,
members are busy compiling the Phi
Eta Sigma Course Description, which
provides students information about
courses ihlime for preregjstration. .
"It affords those students register
ing for classes an opportunity to hear
about a particular course directly from
the professors who teach them," said
Sarah Mack, Phi Eta Sigma adviser
and assistant dean of honors.
. The course description includes
information such as course content,
reading lists, test schedules and lecture
styles about various courses that will
be taught in the coming semester.
Today, 7,000 copies of the Spring
1983 issue will be distributed at sites
across campus, including the Carolina
Union, the Campus Y? Steele Building
and Wilson and the Undergraduate
libraries, said David Kushner, Phi Eta
Sigma vice president.
Funding for the course description
has come in the past from the College
of Arts and Sciences, the Campus
Governing Council and Phi Eta Sigma
dues that members pay upon their in
duction, said Robert McKinney, Phi
Eta Sigma president. This year, the
College of Arts and Sciences discon
tinued their funding of the course
description, resulting in 2,000 fewer

Phi Eta Sigma Treasurer Mary

the coming year in their budget hear

Given the high admission re
quirements to Phi Eta Sigma, it is sur
prising that members have time to
work on a course description. Stan
dards for admission into the honor
society are high.
There are two ways for a freshman
to become a member of Phi Eta
Sigma. Freshmen with at least a 3.5
quality point average obtained in 15.
hours of letter-grade credit at the end
of one semester and no grade lower
than a C gain admission to the society.
Students with the same qualifica
tions by the end of their second
semester, " and" 30 credit hours, also
become members of the society.
