Hike in women students
makes 2 halls all-female
By LISA SWICEGOOD
Manly and Everett dormitories will
house only female students and Lewis
' will be" converted to coed in the fall of
1985, according to a decision handed
down by the housing department
Housing Director Wayne Kuncl
presented the plan, designed to create
more space for female students, during
a meeting of the Residence Hall Asso
ciation Governing Board. The decision
was based on student response to
proposals made by campus groups the
past two weeks and hall conversions
made during the 1970s, Kuncl said.
One alternative included converting
Joyner and all nine buildings in Olde
Campus to coed; converting Whitehead
to coed and graduate; and making a
new undergraduate floor in Craige for
women from Whitehead and other
Since fall 1981, the enrollment of
female undergraduates at UNC has
increased by 2.4 percent. Presently, the
undergraduate student body is 59.1
University Housing operates 28
residence halls which house undergrad
uates, and another hall which houses
juniors, seniors and single graduate
students. The current space allocation,
42 percent male and 58 percent female,
does not meet the increased demand for
female spaces as indicated by applica
tions from new and returning students,
Kuncl said.. The 1984 on-campus
housing waiting list contained 332 males
and 683 females.
Kuncl said each alternative included

Martin, Edmisten fight for margin of victory
By DAN TILLMAN
After the decade spent building
political support, after the long and
costly spring primary campaign and its
ensuing runoff, after all the dinners,
fund-raisers, stump speeches and
debates, voters will decide today
whether the state's next governor will
be a man who was known as the state's
"top cop" or a former Davidson
For state Attorney General Rufus
Edmisten, the last week has been spent
trying to stop a last-minute surge of
support for his opponent.
For 9th District Rep. Jim Martin, 14
months of campaigning and struggling
for name recognition among voters
The Charlotte area representative for
12 years, Martin decided to pass up a
seventh term for a shot at the state house
in Raleigh despite the fact that N.C.
voters have elected only one Republican
governor in this century, Gov. Jim

schedules for completion in June 1985.
A recent report to the UNC Board of
Trustees indicates that the completion
date of the new residence hall is
uncertain. The option chosen by the
housing department does not include
the new building.
Kuncl said the conversion of Lewis
would provide two male floors and one
female floor. "It will balance the number
of male and female rooms in upper and
lower campus," Kuncl said.
The changes will enable the housing
department to equitably respond to
students who want to live on campus,
The new plan will also make it easier
for residence hall governments to
organize social activities, he said.
Meetings are being scheduled with
students affected by the changes. Kuncl
planned to meet with Lewis residents
last night. "I would like to hear options
from the people affected by it," he said.
Kuncl said several ideas are under
consideration to provide priority for
Manly, Everett and some Lewis stu
dents who want to return to the
dormitory in the fall.
Only 50 percent of all on-campus
students can be readmitted to dormi
tories. The housing department had
hoped to increase the percentage of
students allowed to return. The delay
of the new dormitory will defer the
increase until the following academic

decisions I've made since I've been here.

In campaign stops in Orange, Cha

afternoon Martin sounded his rallying
cry of "It's gonna happen on Nov. 6."
"All the reports have shown our
support rising like the shark in Jaws
he told about 75 supporters at a Chapel
Hill rally. "We have caught Edmisten.
He's slipping everywhere. First his
support slipped in the west, then in the
east and then in the Piedmont. And if
our people keep on doing what we've
been doing, and if his people keep on
doing what they've been doing, on Nov.

Last efforts of student groups
By MARK POWELL
With the election year ending today,
UNC's political organizations are
wrapping up their activities with a Hurry
of last minute canvassing and get-out-the-vote
"Well be passing out literature at the
polls and we'll be pooling cars to get
people to the polls," said Darryl Taylor,
a member of the Rufus Edmisten for
Taylor, a law student from Marshall,
said that his organization had distrib
uted Edmisten literature and canvassed
door-to-door throughout the campus to
make students aware of the election date
and registration laws.
College Students for Jim Martin
Committee representative Glenn Cobb,
a junior from Charlotte, said that his
organization had 4,439 absentee ballot
requests this fall on campus. Statewide,
the Martin campaign reports that
1 1 ,689 absentee ballots have been sent
in from college campuses.
"Five thousand votes (from UNC
students) for Martin was our goal, and,
hopefully, we will reach it," Cobb said.
Taylor said interest in the campaign
for governor has increased in the past
few months, although interest in politics
among students is not up.
"Students aren't really involved," he
said, "Students don't realize that they
dont have any political power because
they don't vote."

organization that backs President
Ronald Reagan and Sen. Jesse Helms,

that's the issue," he said.
"There are a lot of people who believe
that working people deserve some help
Martin praised the absentee ballot
program led by UNC senior David
Balmer from Charlotte. He said the
program to identify Martin supporters
on campuses statewide and request
absentee ballots for them has netted
more than 12,000 votes from 21 cam
puses with more than 4,000 from UNC
He lauded state newspapers, includ
ing The Daily Tar Heel, for endorsing
him over his Democratic opponent,
saying he has received about 70 percent
of newspaper endorsements.
Martin emphasized his plans to "get
better pay for better teachers" and
pledged to make reforms in state
government so that state employees can
be free to support either party. Martin

"Let's not go out and spend every
penny we have in a repeating budget
surplus," Martin said. Pointing to tax
credits as a means of giving budget
surpluses back to the citizens, Martin
said 15 of 18 states with unspent
revenues last year gave the money back,
unlike the North Carolina Legislature
which spent the surplus.

Poli-sci profs predict winners
By LEIGH WILLIAMS
President Reagan and Democratic
4th District incumbent Ike Andrews
were the only clear winners in a straw
poll of six UNC political science
professors conducted yesterday
All six professors polled agreed that
Reagan would win, and four predicted
Andrews would retain his seat, while
they agreed that the gubernatorial race

General Rufus Edmisten and Repub

Gov. Jim Hunt was too close to call
Edmisten, 2 to Martin, 1 with 3 "too

with 3 "too close to call" responses.
"Unless pollsters haven't learned in
40 years, everyone is lying to pollsters,
it's difficult to see Reagan losing," said
professor Joel Schwartz.
"It's tough to win when the other
party has the economy going well," said
professor Andrew Scott, crediting a
Reagan victory to a combination of a
good economy, Reagan's personality,
and the media.
"It would take a tremendous sweep

Gov. Hunt accuses Helms
of slowing voter turnout
By TOM CONLON
DURHAM Speaking to about
4,00Q supporters at a Durham Civic
Center rally and barbecue last night,
Democratic Gov. Jim Hunt accused
Republican Sen. Jesse Helms and the
North Carolina Republican Party of
launching a "shameless effort" to keep
Democrats from voting today.
"Well tell them tonight that the
power of the federal government should
never be used for keeping people from
exercising their most precious right
the right to vote," Hunt said.
He said most polls showed the senate
race was about even with Helms and
Hunt both with 47 percent support.
"We're going to win it with a turnout
at the polls," he said.
"The votes are there to send a signal
that will be heard all around this nation
... to send Jesse Helms, the National
Congressional Club, Jerry Falwell and
the whole club packing. The votes are
there to restore pride and respect to this
good state of North Carolina in the
United States senate ... and I'm depend
ent on you to get to the polls tomorrow."
Hunt condemned Helms for refusing
to reveal Federal Elections Commission

paign contributions from the National
Congressional Club and Jefferson

Homecoming events scheduled
By RUTHIE PIPKIN
For many students and alumni,
homecoming means celebrating tradi
tions, returning to rituals and falling
back on the familiar.
Although this year marks the first
homecoming that students will vote for
a winner of the Carolina Pride Award
rather than a homecoming queen,
Carolina Athletic Association President
Jennie Edmundson said she hoped
students would be enthusiastic. "We're
taking a chance with this new, novel
idea," she said.
"We're trying to establish a founda
tion for a new tradition. We're hoping
to catch some people . . . who've never
been interested in homecoming before."
The award will be presented at
halftime Saturday. Also at halftime, two
randomly-chosen students' Social Secur
ity numbers will be announced. It those
students are at the game and wearing
Carolina blue, they'll each win $25.
But homecoming doesn't start at
halftime. The Clefhangers will sing the
national anthem before the game.
And as night falls on Great Hall
tonight, students can step into the
celebrations at a homcoming dance

though the coattail effect (of a Reagan
victory) is strong enough to make
Cobey look good. There'll be no more
than a 2 percent difference."
"Andrews has done it so many times,
it's only common sense to think hell
do it again," said associate professor
Cheryl Miller. "Coattails don't extend
Associate professor Merle Black and
Schwartz were less certain of an
Andrews victory Black said the race
was too close, while Schwartz said a
low turnout would help Andrews.
In the gubernatorial race, Daland and
Scott predicted an Edmisten victory
while Miller put Martin ahead.
"I predict Edmisten, which kind of
goes against the rightward swing, but
I guess him because he's been develop
ing political contacts for so long,"
"Martin will probably win, but he
may lose some Democratic voters
because of his far-right identification,"
On the Hunt-Helms race, Scott said
Hunt could "probably" override the
coattail effect, while professor Robert
Rupen said Helms could win with
strong coattails and Daland predicted
Helms, because of the rightward
national shift which makes Walter
Mondale and other Democrats seem
scary liberals to the voters.
Black, Schwartz and Miller couldn't
call a winner. "Both the Senate and the
governor's race are contests between
coattails and Democratic party organ
ization," Schwartz said. "In the South,
Reagan has a 2-1 margin. Coattails are
strong here but the Democratic Party
structure is still intact and a force to
be reckoned with."
the election . . . that is the voter's loss,"
he said. "What is Sen. Helms hiding?
Why is he afraid to take the lid off the
case? I'm challenging Jesse Helms and
the National Congressional Club late
as it is to tell the people of the state
of North Carolina the truth about
'Clubgate.' It's time to stop the cover
up, Jesse, if you don't come clean I may
get the man who worked on the
Watergate investigation ... IH get
Attorney General Rufus Edmisten to
get on you and find out what it is."
"We've waited twelve long years for
this opportunity, let's cast a vote we can
be proud of," Hunt said, urging sup
porters to take election day off, drive
people to the polls, pass out campaign
literature or do other volunteer work.
"This campaign is very much like an
ACC basketball game," Hunt said. "But
I am like Dean Smith. Dean Smith may
be three points behind going into the
last minute, but he's got Michael Jordan
. . . and I've got you."
Noting the twenty-five Duke Univer
sity students below the podium, Hunt
added, "I should make that coach K.
and he's got Johnny Dawkins."
