Doug Bcrger (Dist. 1) urged other
members of SEEDS to "stick together
against the conservatives (on the CGO."
Marshall Mills (Dist. 15), of SEEDS,
said, "The $500 across-the-board alloca
tions are an expression to these groups
that we want to help out, but we have to
base our allocations on the benefits
students are going to receive for their
money; special-interest groups simply are
not as deserving of funding as groups that
benefit a larger section of the student
body." ' .' '
The Carolina Gay Association received
$828; the Carolina Indian Circle, $1,185,
although severai CGC members pointed
out that these could be treated as special
"There is no consistency here about
looking or not looking at groups in
dividually," Rebel Cole (Dist. 3) said.
"Look at the Association of Women
Students and North Carolina Student
Legislature both have about 50 or so
members, and AWS received $2,785 and
NCSL got $600."
Wyatt Closs (Dist. 10), said he felt
much of the allocating had been "ir
responsible and totally subjective."
Ron Everett (Dist. 13), said, "We real
ly need to look at groups individually.
There seems to be an undermining of the
two-week budget process conducted by
the Finance Committee by calling for
these across the board allocations."
Joe D'Amico, a member of NCSL,
said his group could not operate with less
than $2,000. The group was allocated
$600. D'Amico added that NCSL would
now be open only to students who could
afford it, rather than to all students.
"We have been funded by Student

Government for 20 years and have
created a tradition of excellence that few
other groups can claim," he said. "Stu
dent Government is sending out a bad
message by essentially stopping funding
of such an excellent organization."
Bill Barlow (Dist. 4), said he realized
the worth of such an organization, but he
said Student Government simply couldn't
afford to do the funding. "NCSL does
not give a large, return to the student
body, and we have to look at how much
the organizations benefit the entire stu
dent body," he said.
A question was raised by Peter Doyle
(Dist. 12) concerning the Association of
Women Students' political nature.
"From what I know of the group, they
have a tendency to espouse philosophies
that are a particular' view of certain
women and not the view of the majority
of women on campus," he said.
. Berger disagreed. "It shouldn't be a
question of the views of a group when '
comes to funding," he said. Mcve
already funded groups, like the Carolina
Committee on Central America (CCCA),
which take positions. The question
should be on the value of the educational
programs the group offers."
The CCCA was appropriated $279
more than the $201 proposed by the
Finance Committee. John Reed (Dist. 6),
who voted in favor of the addition, cited
the educational timeliness of the group's
programs. Cole said funding of the group
would be challenged in the Student

ships prompted much debate during the

dent stipend was first cut to $450 and
later amended back to $600. RHA had
originally asked for an $800 stipend.
"Every stipend has already been cut (in
reference to the $600 allocation proposed
by the Finance Committee) as tight as
possible," said Tim Newman (Dist. 11),
who chaired most of the Finance Com
mittee hearings, "The RHA president
must be here during the summer because
of his connections with the administra
tion and his obligation to protect the in
terests of all on-campus students. This
prevents him from obtaining a summer
job." He said $600 wasn-'t "too much for
the tremendous amount of time the job
Parker said it wouid be a travesty to cut
the RHA stipend. "We can't make the
position open only to those who can af
ford to do it, rather than whoever is best
qualified" he said.
Reed said, "I think it is wrong that we
are giving some individuals as much or
more than a number of entire groups. We
should devise a system whereby the
money is given to those individuals strict
ly on evidence of need."
The student body treasurer stipend,
originally budgeted at $1,200, was set at
450, and the student body president sti
pend was kept at the full $1,600. The
Finance Committee had proposed that
trie president's stipend be $1,200.
The CGC debated whether it could
constitutionally alter the president's sti
pend because of a law in the Student

Greg Smith, Phoenix editor, said the,
CGC allocation would force the Phoenix
to publish only once every two weeks.
Such a printing schedule would hurt the
paper's ability to solicit advertisers and
would increase the cost of typesetting.
Smith said. "The Phoenix will be work

to be very wise with their funds if they are
going to make it next year," he said.
Robertson said the amount the CGC
