CARP loses recognition after application discrepancy
By AMY BRAN EN
The Collegiate Association for the
Research of Principles lost its University
recognition this semester because their
application for recognition listed as of
ficers several persons who were not aware
they were officers, according to Fred
Schroeder, director of the Department of
"The fact that they were not aware of
their capacity as officers was viewed as a
misrepresentation of fact," he said.
Schroeder said he did not know who sub
mitted the incorrect names.
The department first found out about
the discrepancy when a student doing a
research paper about the organization
contacted the people listed as officers for.
CARP and found lhat several of them
did not know of their positions. The stu
dent then gave the information to the
Department of Suident Life, Schroeder
Schroeder said there were four names
in question on the application. One,
Dorothy Davidson, had agreed to serve as
a temporary president for the group as a
favor to, her sister who is affiliated with
the group at another school and until a
permanent one was elected, Schroeder
said. The other three did not know their
names were involved she said." Schroeder
said he did not think CARP Faculty Ad
viser Jerjang Chang knew the wrong
names were used on the application.
Davidson said Tuesday she had never
been affiliated with the .organization,
even though she was listed in an October
DTH as president. .
Because Davidson was listed as an of
ficer on CARP's application for recogni
tion, the Department of Student Life ad
vised her to formally resign from the
group, she said. Student Life told her she
faced Honor Court charges if she did not
resign, she said.
Schroeder said the matter was taken to
Student Attorney General Hunter
Hoover to find out whether a violation
had been committed against the code.
"I. suspect that what was said was that
if she was the president of the organiza-
uon she should resign from that post," he
said. "1 didn't sense there was any
dishonorableness on her part."
Schroeder said that if CARP were to
arjply again for University recognition,
"They would again be given consideration.
Shirley Hynter, assistant dean of Stu
dent Life, said she talked with Davidson
and did not tell her to resign. Hunter said
that when Davidson informed her that
she was not the president of CARP, she
suggested that Davidson come by the Stu
dent Life office to settle the matter.
Hunter said she spoke with an assistant to
the Student Attorney General last week
who did not know what the Attorney
General had decided.

Knudsen urges voter awareness
By BETH O'KELLEY
Betty Ann "Knudsen, candidate for
N.C. Secretary of State, held a workshop
on campaign organization Tuesday night
at the UNC Young Democrats' meeting.
Knudsen, who will challenge incum
bent Thad Eure for the Democratic
nomination, emphasized the importance
of exercising the right to vote. She said
statistics show that young people have
one of the worst voting records of any age
group. When people come to her com
plaining about an issue, Knudsen said she
first asks them "Did you vote?" Non
voters "are part of the problem," she
said "and I am not going to listen to
them. Your vote is important."
"We do not spend enough time en
couraging absentee balloting. You need
to make sure "all your supporters know
how to vote on. an absentee ballot."
Knudsen says she has no plans to
make Eure's age an issue in the cam
paign, but it invariablv comes up in her
public appearances. Eure is 84 years old
and has been Secretary of State since
The issues she said she would focus on
were updating official records and
publications, moving the secretary of
state's office from the old Capitol
building to the Legislative Office Building
in order to be near staff members, and
transferring records from hard copy to
microfilm. Hard copy then would be sent
to the Division of Archives and History.
Knudsen's campaign relies heavily on
volunteers because of the high monetary
priority placed on the 1984 Senate race
between Sen. Jesse Helms and Gov. Jim
Hunt, she said.
Knudsen is currently the vice chairman
of the Wake County Board of Commis
sioners. A resident of Raleigh she runs
her campaign from her home.

About 35 UNC students left the cold North Carolina
weather Wednesday to go to the even colder weather of
The students, who are part of an exchange program
with the University of Toronto, met at the Morehead
Planetarium at 5:30 Wednesday afternoon to get ready
foMheir 18-hour bus ride. The group was supposed to
stop once in Niagara Falls, N.Y., according to junior
Tim Sullivan, who is one of three student coordinators
for the exchange.
Christopher Armitage, an associate professor in the
UNC English department and faculty advisor for the
program, said the exchange between the two schools had
been going on for at least 20 years. He said one of the
trip's most important benefits was it gave students a
"heightened cultural awareness" by allowing them to see
Canada and how Canadians live.
"It is a valuable experience about America's most im
portant neighbors, who most Americans know surpris
ingly little about," said Armitage, who teaches a Cana
dian literature class.
He added that the trip would also be a "dispeller of
"They'll get to see that Canada is not perpetually
under snow and that it consists of more than just hockey
players," he said.
The exchange students from Toronto visited North
Carolina in November. They stayed with UNC students,
and their activities included a tour of the Environmental
Protection Agency in the Research Triangle Park, a
faculty reception, a lecture by political science professor
David Garrow on Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil
rights movement, a banquet at Mt. Zion Baptist Church .
in Chatham County, and a UNC-Clemson football
"We showed them lots and lots of parties, too," said
UNC senior Lynda White.
The UNC students will stay with Toronto students
' during the week-long trip. They will attend a reception
witn tne lieutenant governor of Toronto, hear lectures by
professors at the University of Toronto, go cross
country skiing and ice skating and visit the Canadian Na
tional Tower, one of the world's largest structures.
The students, who were selected by an application and
interview process, will miss four or five days of classes
before returning to Chapel Hill next Wednesday, but
that should not be much of a problem for either the
students or their professors, Sullivan said.
"Since it's a University-recognized and sponsored
program, almost all professors are supportive of it,"
Sullivan said. "We've encouraged students who are go
ing to get as much of their work out of the way as possi
ble before they go and then work with their professors
when they get back."
The biggest problem, said Sullivan, who also went on
the exchange last year, may be the cold. He said he had
heard stories of people's skin freezing when they stayed
outside in the cold and wind for too long.
"It'll make the rest of the winter in North Carolina
seem like the tropics," he said.
APO collects fewer books but makes more money as it helps students
By JANET OLSON .
The Alpha Phi Omega book co-op
helped about 2,000 students save money
this semester, according to Mary arm Duf
fy, APO president.
Although APO collected about 2,500
fewer books than it did last spring, the
book co-op earned over $7,000 more in
total sales. Sales rose, Duffy said,
because students successfully sold their
books at higher prices.
Duffy said the total number of books
collected decreased because more new
editions are being used this spring than in
,"A lot of people check to see if the
book's going to be used next semester
before they bring it over here," Duffy
The co-op loses inventory when stu
dents sell their books back to Student
Stores during exam week, Duffy added.
Because APO collects used books at the
beginning of the semester, students who
want to sell books before Christmas can
not use the co-op.
Those students who do use APO's
book service receive from APO 85 per
cent of the price the book sells for at the
co-op. The student selling the book sets
his own price.
"We advise students to go to Student
Stores, see what they're selling the book
for, and to underprice the books," Duffy
APO keeps 15 percent of the total
book sales each semester. After sub
tracting the $250 to $300 spent to run the
co-op, APO donates the remaining pro
fits annually to a University Scholarship
Fund which the fraternity set up in its
name. Duffy said she estimated that APO
will donate $12,500 to $13,000 to the
fund this year.
Today is the last day students can
receive cash from APO for books sold at
the co-op. Students can receive a check
for money owed to them until Feb. 6 by
going to the APO complex with their re
ceipts. APO will claim all books remaining at
the complex after Feb. 6 as APO "pro

nity will attempt to sell the books to a
