Jesse backs Mondale-Ferraro
By FRANK PROCTOR
The Rev. Jesse Jackson, former
Democratic presidential candidate,,
preached his campaign-tested gospel of
economic and political justice for all
here yesterday, urging students to work
through the political process for peace,
justice and freedom in what he called
a critical time for the American elec
torate. "We must give peace a chance
and give Reagan a rest," Jackson told
800 in Memorial Hall as part of a voter
registration drive at UNC. "I'm for
Mondale-Ferraro because it represents
a way out.
44 We need a new direction. We must
build an aggressive political movement
in this nation for peace, justice and
freedom," he said, urging students to
get involved in the Nov. 6 elections,
which he called "a critical period in the
history of this state and this nation.
Jackson said President Reagan had
cut public housing by 75 percent, cut
federal funding for education by 25
percent, and allowed eight million more
Americans to drop below the poverty
For the record

SRC finds revised

lack of money, facilities
By TAMERA MAJORS
North Carolina's sports clubs are in
something of a bind.
The clubs, which are already subject
to limited funding, are also suffering
from a lack of playing fields and no
storage space, club officers said.
The problem of finances stems back
to a 1980 decision that kept the Sports
Club Council separate of the Intramural
Department. That year, the SCC
accepted a flat rate of $25,000 from
student fees a rate that does not
increase or decrease. In doing so, the
'SCC remained a separate University
However, there is a disagreement
over how those decisions were made and
who wanted to do what.
"Sports clubs opted to remain separ
ate from the Physical Education Depart
ment," said Steve Hutson, assistant
dean of student affairs. "Because of this
there are a lot of tie-ins that cannot
But Lynn Featherstone, SCC advi
sor, said that the P.E. department and
Intramurals did not want anything to
do with club sports.
Moreover, Hutson said the SCC was
offered a percentage of student fees
rather than a fixed rate, but chose the
fixed sum. "The students were very
adamant for alloting a $25,000 flat
rate," Hutson said. "(The SCC) was
offered a percentage, but preferred a flat
"We didn't refuse a percentage; my
God, we were trying to get one,"
Featherstone said. "We were not offered
a percentage, the final document did not
include a percentage. We initially asked
for a percentage of the student fee.
Everybody, administrators, said that's
not possible. We said, 'Okay, what can
we have' and they said a flat rate."
line. "Mr. Reagan had been unkind to
poor people, insensitive to women and
uncaring to children, he said.
"The poor are not poor because they
don't work hard or because they dont
love their country they work very
hard and their sons were the first to
die in Lebanon and Grenada."
Jackson discounted predictions that
Reagan will win easily. "That's not true
and that's not logical anybody can ,

he said. "The polls are not open yet and
nobody is winning. The score is zero
Reagan offers young people numer

him, Jackson said. Pointing out one,
he said, "Either you or your loved ones

He also cited the budget deficit as
a problem for America's youth. "He
(Reagan) will not pay for the $200
billion deficit you're the generation
that will have to pay off that debt," he
said. Reagan's 1984 deficit is three times
as great as the deficit left by former
president Jimmy Carter, he said.
Only 35 percent of eligible young
people are registered to vote despite the
Reagan record, Jackson said, as he
urged students to help create a new
future for America. "Your generation
must move from racial battleground to
economic common ground.
"I challenge you this day to stand
together on the agenda of your day,
economic justice. Your generation must
have the courage to turn to each other,
not on each other," Jackson said.

Closs and Biruta Nielsen, an assistant
to the vice chancellor for business and
finance who deals with changes in
campus routes, agreed to see if demand
warranted Stadium Drive service during
the afternoon or night. They plan to
meet again tomorrow after Closs
confers with the SRC government.
The new route that began in August
lets the U-bus shuttle people from the
hospital to the parking lots more
quickly via Manning Drive. "Whether
we change it or not will depend very
much on the boarding counts at health
affairs," Nielsen said.
"U" also means it's unified. The new
SCC President Crista Herbert said
the 1980 funding decision was made at
the end of the school year and was done
in haste. "It was a big thing ... that we
were getting anything, so the SCC was
happy to get the $25,000," Herbert said.
Herbert said the main problem with
the fixed rate is that . expenses were
increasing, as were the number of clubs.
"The clubs ask for two or three times
more money than what we have," said
Herbert, adding that clubs charge dues
to members and are expected to have
fund raisers. But some clubs, such as
ice hockey, have extra expenses such
as the cost of ice time, which overextend
what money they raise, Herbert said.
There are 25 clubs in the SCC, accord
ing to Herbert.
The Intramural Department will
receive $150,000 during the 1984-85
academic year. That sum covers the
salaries of two full-time directors and
officials, and the cost of equipment and
Herbert said the SCC,, the governing
branch of the clubs, is expected to pay
for officials, travel, lodging, equipment
and office supplies.
Compounding that problem is a lack
of field space. If a club sport has
reserved a field for practice or a game,
and intramurals needs the field during
that time, the club must reschedule its
activity, said Rob Frye, assistant
director of intramurals. "We do have
the authority to bump sports clubs off
the fields," Frye said. "It happens, not
a lot, but it happens."
Frye said that rain delays were a
major cause of this. He said IMs had
the authority to close down a field when
it deems playing conditions to be poor.
Herbert said the fields were often in
poor condition because of the extensive

Many students took advantage of the
chance to register. Among them was
Dawn Patterson, a sophomore from
Lenoir. "I was planning to do it anyway,
but this is a great opportunity," she said.
Junior Susan Giles from Alexandria,
Va., agreed. She said she had made
plans to come to the speech and added,
"It's a lot easier to register this way."
Preceding Jackson at the podium
were representatives of a number of
campus organizations. "Jim Martin is
a Republican running for Governor, but
he's a moderate that the black people
of North Carolina should vote for," said
David Balmer, chairmanof College

"I got one call (complaint)," said Alan
Tobias, a CHT administrative assistant,
"but the person who talked to me said
she knew a lot of others who felt the
same way." Kaminsky said it wasnt her.
Tobias said he had heard of other
complaints from people boarding at the
Student Union who wanted to go to
Franklin Street and had to sit through
almost an entire circuit. The A-bus
route is much shorter, but rides cost
50 cents twice as much as the U-bus.
Still, Tobias said, "it has been pretty
popular, and we've had some crowded
buses." He said ridership on the U-bus
has been down 15 to 20 percent during
the past three weeks but added that
confusion over parking at the SAC
might have been a reason.

A poll conducted by Focus Group
Inc. of Chapel Hill finds Republican
Rep. Jim Martin leading Democratic
Attorney General Rufus Edmisten in
the race for governor, while two other
recent polls show Edmisten with more
than a ten-point cushion.
According to Focus Group's poll,
Martin draws support from 36.4 percent
of the registered voters, leading
Edmisten, who receives 34.1 percent.
The poll, conducted for WBTV in
Charlotte and WTVD in Durham,
shows an unusually large 29.5 percent
A Charlotte Observer poll shows
Edmisten with 51 percent over Martin's
39 percent. A Gallup Poll also puts
Edmisten ahead, holding 50.5 percent
over Martin's 39.2 percent.
Unlike the other polls, Focus Group
allowed for a larger percentage of
undecided voters because persons
unsure of which candidate they would
support were not asked follow-up
questions, Focus Group President
Steven Lerner said.
"There are a lot of things that could
push them one way or another," Lerner
said of the 29.5 percent the poll found
undecided. Asking them further ques
tions may bring less accurate results,
The Charlotte Observer asked unde
cided voters who they were leaning
toward, said Rob Daves, project direc
tor for the Observer poll. "We're in the
business of giving our readers the best
indication of what's going on in people's
The Focus Group poll also differed
from the Observer survey in that those
polled were asked consecutive questions
about their preferences for the upcom
ing presidential and senatorial races
before they were asked about Edmisten
and Martin. "This provides for coat
tailing," Lerner said.
"Our polls display a voting booth
kind of mentality," said Jim Protzman,
vice president of marketing at Focus

accustomed to seeing the names of
candidates appear consecutively on
