The campus Governing Council Ethics
Committee recommended Monday that
Speaker James Exum not be punished for
reserving rooms in the Carolina Union
for campaign meetings.
Exum, a candidate for student body
president, has acknowledged holding
"three or four" campaign meetings in the
Union, reserving rooms in the name of
the CGC or the Black Interdenomina
tional Student Association.
Exum said he used the groups' named
with the knowledge and approval of their
The Ethics Committee found that Ex
um was unaware he was violating Union
policy in reserving the rooms for cam
paign meetings, said Ethics Committee
member William "Doc" Droze.
Once Exum found out about the
policy, he voluntarily stopped reserving
rooms, cancelling a campaign meeting he
had scheduled for today in the Union,
Exum did not attempt to hide the fact
he was using the rooms for campaign
meetings, said committee member Ron
"I didn't see any malicious attempt by
him to cover it up at all," Everett said.
Officially recognized student organiza
tions are given priority in the use of
Union rooms. Students may use the
rooms for other purposes, including cam
paign meetings, if space is available but
cannot reserve a room more than a day in
advance according to Pam Kyff, chief
reservationist for Union rooms.
Exum, who jokingly named the inci-
dent "Uniongate," said he was pleased
with the committee's decision.
"Now we can get back to a state of
normalcy in the CGC office," Exum
said. "As far as the campaign is concern
ed, we can get back to some of the (other)
issues that have been raised."
The Ethics Committee consists of Ex
um, Droze and Everett. Exum relinquish
ed his seat on the committee during the
investigation into the room reservations.
Droze predicted the full CGC would
accept the committee's recommendations
when it meets Wednesday.
The committee could have recom
mended that Exum be censured by the

BEIRUT, Lebanon U.S. Marines
battled Shiite Moslem militiamen Mon
day with tank cannon, mortar and
machine-gun fire in a daylong series of
clashes that killed one Marine. U.S. fire
reportedly killed a 9-year-old girl and two
Three Marines and two school children
were among 29 reported wounded during
the three battles that broke out at 9:10
a.m. and lasted past nightfall.
Marine spokesman Maj. Dennis
Brooks said one of two Marines wounded
in an afternoon clash died while waiting
to be evacuated. The other was flown by
helicopter to the amphibious assault
ship Guam off the Beirut coast.
Two Marines suffered slight injuries in
midmorning clashes with the militia.
They were treated on the scene and
returned to duty, Brooks said.
The Marine who died was the 259th
U.S. serviceman to die in combat in
Lebanon since the Marines were deployed
in Beirut in September 1982. Brooks
withheld the marine's name until his
family is notified.
Brooks said that in each clash, the
Marines fired only after being attacked.
"We have no way of knowing what we
hit, and what casualties there were,"
Brooks said. "We are sorry about any
civilian casualties, but the bottom line is
that we are taking fire from the area and
we have to defend ourselves."
Spokesmen for Amal, the main Shiite
militia group, and hospitals in southern
Beirut said Marine fire killed three
civilians, including the girl, and wounded
22, including two schoolchildren and one
In the Shiite neighborhood of Hay el
Sellum, Amal fighters showed AP
reporters a blue-green school bus with
four large-caliber bullet holes in one side
and fresh blood on two of the 12 seats.
The bus was carrying children from the
Shiite Ahlieh School in nearby Bourj el

Lebanon state radio said one of the
two Marines injured in the afternoon
clash had been shot in the chest. Brooks
refused to provide details or name any of
the injured Marines.
Brooks said that in an unrelated inci
dent, a Marine guarding the U.S. Em
bassy in Beirut shot himself in the foot.
He was treated at the American Universi
Airport officials said four other
Lebanese civilians suffered shrapnel
wounds in shelling that forced suspension
of air traffic for two hours in the morning
and one hour in the afternoon.
Passengers and airport workers scur
ried to basements and bomb shelters as
shells slammed into the airport's parking
lot near the gate to the Marine base, state
Meanwhile, in Damascus, President
Reagan's special envoy, Donald
Rumsfeld, and Assistant Secretary of
State Richard Murphy met twice with
Syrian Foreign Minister Abdul-Halim
Khaddam, whose nation backs anti
government militia forces in Lebanon
and an estimated 30,000 troops there.
Rumsfeld said after the first, 314-hour
meeting that Khaddam suggested, "I
have been wrongly briefed in Washington
and that I should stay here a couple of
days in order to allow him to brief me on
Spokesmen for Amal, who spoke on
condition they not be identified, said the
Marines' first shot was at a group of
militiamen reinforcing a sandbagged
position about 20 to 30 yards from the
Marine lines at 8:50 a.m., and wounded
one Amal fighter.
Shortly before the fighting tapered off
at nightfall, the Marines and Amal
fighters traded small arms, machine-gun
and automatic rifle fire from lines about
300 to 500 yards at the airport and Hay
el-Sellum, a shantytown ravaged in
previous rounds of the nine year civil war.
Brooks said shooting was going on
around the Marine base 90 minutes after
a 6 p.m. truce was reported by police. He
said he believed the Lebanese army was
fighting with militiamen near the airport
and could not tell if Marines were involv
ed. Brooks said the 9:10 a.m. battle involv
ed small arms fire. A second, half-hour-long
attack started at 10 a.m. and involv
ed small arms fire and rocket-propelled
grenades from the militiamen and a
retaliatory barrage by Marine tanks,
60mm mortars, machine guns and small
arms, Brooks said.
A third battle started at 2:30 p.m.,
Brooks said, starting with small arms fire
and escalating to rocket-propelled
grenade and mortar fire. He said the
Marines fired back with tanks and, even
tually, 81mm mortars.
Wrist injury sidelines
Smith for one month

Assistant Sports Editor
North Carolina point guard Kenny
Smith will be sidelined for at least four
weeks with a wrist injury he suffered in
Sunday's win over Louisiana State in
Team physician Joseph DeWalt
diagnosed the injury as a scaphoid bone
fracture in Smith's left wrist. Treatment
will involve immobilization, DeWalt said,
and a cast has been placed on the wrist.
"We plan to follow Kenny's progress
daily," DeWalt said. "We will re
evaluate his condition in one month."
The re-evaluation date is prior to the
final week of regular-season play in the
ACC, but DeWalt said it was too early to
say if Smith will be able to play at that
Smith is averaging 10.1 points and 5.2
assists a game this season. He is only the
fifth freshman to start in his first varsity
game for North Carolina under coach
Dean Smith. The others were Phil Ford,
Mike O'Koren, James Worthy and
"We're disappointed for Kenny
because he has been playing so well and
was making good improvement defen
sively," Dean Smith said. "I just hope
this won't be too big of a setback for him.
"I'm disappointed for our team
because Kenny has played such a major
role in our success. He will certainly be
Smith will replaced in the UNC lineup
by 6-3 sophomore Steve Hale and 6-4
junior Buzz Peterson. Both players will
share time at point guard.
"I have confidence in Steve and
Buzz," Dean Smith said. "I hope we will
continue to improve as a team and get
Kenny back before the end of the year.
Of course, if he does play again this year,
he would have to wear a protective device
on that wrist."
Smith is not the first Tar Heel to be in
jured late in the season. A knee injury to
Ford hurt North Carolina in the NCAA
tournament in 1976, and when the Tar
Heels reached the final four in 1977, they
had to play without center Tommy
LaGarde, who was out with a knee in
jury. Also in 1977, Ford played with a
hyperextended elbow and Walter Davis
had a broken finger.

RHA hears proposed housing increase;
agrees to give $500 to Springfest '84
When North Carolina was eliminated
in the first round of the NCAA tourna
ment in 1978, O'Koren, Rich Yonakor
and Jeff Wolf were suffering from in
juries that affected their play.
Worthy was sidelined with a sprained
ankle in 1980 and an ankle injury to Pete
Budko proved costly in 1981.
The Tar Heels' first test without Smith
will come Wednesday when they face
Clemson in Greensboro.

for us to play without Kenny," Dean

The Residence Hall Association heard a proposal Monday
night to increase residence hall housing rates by 18 percent and
married student housing by 24 percent.
RHA also agreed to give $500 to Springfest '84 to help fund
the concert, which is sponsored by Henderson Residence Col
lege. Wayne T. Kuncl, director of housing, explained to the RHA
the plan to raise on campus housing, that will be reviewed by
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Donald Boulton Wednes
day. The money is needed to keep up with maintenance on ex
isting dormitories and debt service (similar to a mortgage pay
ment) for the new residence hall. Other reasons for the increase
are an 8.4 percent salary increase for employees and increased
fees for utilities.
The increase is comparable to other universities in the South,
Kuncl said. If occupancy and attendance continue their upward
trend, "we can return to a nominal increase in future years," he
The housing office is not trying to make a profit, Kuncl said.
The increase will allow them to maintain the status quo, he said.
"We will only maintain the level at a rate which we require to
meet operating expenses," he said.
Even though RAs and ADs are not state employees and not
subject to the state wage increase, the proposed budget includes
a raise for them to offset the cost of the housing increase, Kuncl
said. Instead of the proposed 18 to 24 percent increase, the RHA
requested that the housing office increase dorm costs by only $1
per semester in order to provide better maintenance for
residence halls. RHA members complained of poor dormitory
conditions including green mold in Mangum dormitory.
The RHA also agreed to co-sponsor Springfest '84, a concert
sponsored by HRC and planned for April 14.
"I just want a major concert here on campus," said Michael
Beverly, program director for Springfest '84. The proposed site
is Connor beach and would be free admission, as it has been in
the past, beverly said. Alcohol will not be provided at the con
cert, he said.
HRC will request $5,000 from Student Government, and the
amount the Student Government can give will have an effect on
the types of groups that can be invited, Beverly said.
Bands available for the concert include big name bands such
as Climax Blues Band, Huey Lewis and the News, REM and
, Squeeze. If not enough money is raised, lesser-known bands will
play for Springfest 84, Beverly said.
"Springfest has always been financially responsible, and
HRC is willing to do the dirty work," Beverly said, in his appeal
to the RHA for funding support.
RHA President Mark Dalton suggested that the RHA drop
plans for sponsoring their own concert and lend their support to
Springfest. There isn't sufficient money or time, Dalton said,
and traffic control would be a problem on Ehringhaus Field.
The RHA voted to discard their plans for sole sponsorship of a
Faircloth stresses economic development, government efficiency
By TOM CONLON
Editor's note: This is the first in a weekly sen
profiles on major candidates for governor.
RALEIGH D.M. "Lauch" Faircloth, the first
Democratic gubernatorial candidate to file for the
1984 election, said economic development, education
and efficiency in government would be his primary
goals if elected governor.
In a recent interview at his state campaign head
quarters, Faircloth said he was the most qualified
candidate because of his experience as N.C. secretary
"The other candidates talk about bringing jobs to
the state," he said. "I've been responsible for bring
ing approximately 180,000 jobs to the state, $11. 5 bil
lion in new industry and expansion, and increasing
tourism, our third-largest source of revenue in this
state, from a $1 billion to a $3 billion annual
Faircloth served as commerce secretary in Gov.
Jim Hunt's administration from 1976 to July 1983
before resigning to run for governor. He announced
his candidacy Jan. 3.
Orange county residents benefitted from economic
development during his tenure as commerce secre
tary, he said. "Companies like Data General, Nor
thern Telecom, W.H. Brady Co., Bristol Myers,
Union Carbide, General Electric and GTE have pro
vided jobs for the people of Orange county," Fair
"As chairman of the state highway commission
from 1969 to 1972, 1 approved the project to improve
Highway 54 from Chapel Hill to Alamance county
and the 1-40 connection to 1-85 through Orange
County," he said. The 1-40 link is expected to be
completed about 1990.
Faircloth, who is seeking an elected office for the
first time, said a pay increase for primary and secon
dary school teachers was necessary to provide quality
education and educators. "We've a decline of people
entering the teaching field," he said. "Higher salaries
would make teaching a more attractice profession."
Faircloth stopped short of endorsing merit pay, al
though he said there should be supplemental pay for
teachers who perform additional duties. "Merit pay
is a good idea, but it's not enforceable," he said. "I
don't see how it could be equitably administered."
No pay scale or figures would be set until he was
able to examine the complete budget, Faircloth said.
"A tax increase will not be necessary," he said. "It's
just that education will be a greater priority, and I
will reapportion more money to that area than I will
to other areas."
The UNC system and the state's 58 community
colleges would ' not be affected by educational
changes. "We have one of the finest university
systems in the country, and I intend to see that con
tinue," he said. "I think we're doing well in that area
Efficiency in government can be obtained by
eliminating bureaucracy, Faircloth said. "There's
been a tendency in the past 20 to 25 years to increase
programs," he said. "It has an effect of sweeping up
tax money, and that is not an infinite revenue source.
The state employees have been the real victims be
cause we've spread ourselves so thin and have been
unable to meet our job commitments, salary and
On social issues, Faircloth said he supported the
ERA in 1982 and would do so again. Brad Crone,
deputy press secretary for Faircloth, said Faircloth
was "a fiscal conservative, but a moderate on social
and other issues."
Faircloth has extensive political experience, despite
having never held elected office, Crone said. "He's
worked on gubernatorial campaigns for Kerr Scott,
Terry Sanford, Bob Scott, Jim Hunt, and on a U.S.
Senate campaign for Frank Porter Graham in 1950,"
A native of Clinton, Faircloth owns and operates
several farms, agricultural-related companies and
small businesses throughout eastern North Carolina.
He was a member of the N.C. Highway Commission
from 1961 to 1964 and chaired the commission from
1969 to 1973. He has been endorsed by former Gov.
Terry Sanford and former Charlotte mayor John
