The Commons' pastry
The Commons receives favorable

After The Commons opened Tues
day, some students said they found it
uncommonly nice for a cafeteria.
"I like it because you can put your

Clayton Morgan, a sophomore from

Fountain said he had already disqual

candidate because five signatures on her
form were not from students within her
district. The candidate did not have the
required 25 signatures needed to run for
CGC because she only turned in 26, and
five of that number were not valid.

Parker said. "Conceivably, someone

kind of unusual."
"The problem with a lot of candi

South African reform called 'cosmetic'

Relocation could be necessary
By LISA SWICEGOOD
Some North Campus residents may
find themselves uprooted next year and
transferred to another home because of
a $500,000 renovation plan by the
Department of Housing.
Housing department officials want to
move the residents of Aycock, Graham,
Stacy, Everett and Lewis dormitories
into the hew residence hall that is
presently under construction in order
to do major repairs on the five dor
mitories. The new residence hall was
scheduled to be completed at the
beginning of the fall semester of 1985,
but bad weather slowed construction.
Housing department officials said they
expected the dormitory will be com
pleted around October or November.
Mark Stafford, Resident Hall Asso
ciation president, said although the
move was still in the planning stages,
he felt confident it will be carried
through. Stafford said these residents
would be moved during the nearest
holiday or break once the dormitory
was completed. The residents will live
in the new residence hall with no rent
increase for the remainder of the
According to Dave Spano, area
director of Olde Campus, the housing
department conducted a study of the
dormitories to see what renovations
were needed. Based on that study, these
five dormitories in the lower quad were
in the greatest need of repair. Most of
them were built in 1924.
Stafford said plumbing and electricity
would be renovated, but the specific
repairs had not been determined. "If
they wanted to just keep the dorms at
1920s or '30s standards, maintenance
could come in over the summer and
mmake minor repairs. But to upgrade
the dorms to 1985, they about need to
tear everything down," Stafford said.
"It's a perfect opportunity to do one
whole quad at a time. It's using the new
building to help the old buildings."

While most UNC students are getting
ready for campus elections, sophomore
Charles Buki, 21, is thinking on a
grander scale running for a position
on the Chapel Hill Town Council.
Buki, a political science and history
major from Frenchtown, N.J., said
yesterday that he was concerned about
a lack oi student
and that he'd like to
serve UNC students
from the town's
point of view.
"It's not that I

"I want to represent

about his chances for a place on the
council, but he is also honest about his
"I admit that I'm as politically
inexperienced as the most inexperienced
person," Buki said. "But I'm well-read
on the issues, responsible, and I'm not
so arrogant that I think I know
Buki said he made his final decision
to run for a position on the council two
weeks ago, but he isn't required to file
his candidacy until early this fall.
Buki said he felt knowledgeable
about Chapel Hill even though he had
only been a resident here since August.
"Where I'm not knowledgeable I will
be by filing time," he said. "As a student
I'm an expert at learning."
Buki said that as a town council
member he would want to hold a forum
once a month to discuss student feelings
on the town-student relationship so that
he could better represent students at
town council meetings.
Buki said he was interested in seeing
two issues addressed by the town
council. One, he said, was the issue of
adult channels on cable television. Buki
said he thought Village Cable should
be allowed to offer adult channels, such
as the Playboy Channel.
music faculty, this interpretation of the
Passion will be unusual because of its
small scale. "Instead of using choruses,
the Ensemble will employ only one
voice per part in order to balance the
more intimate sound of the original
instruments," Nadas said.
Ensemble and Society members will
also join forces Sunday for a concert
of Bach chamber music. The program
opener will be the very popular Suite
in B minor for flute, strings and
Stafford, however, is concerned
about the shuffling of the students,
affecting about 10 percent of campus
residents. "It's an unfortunate coinci
dence that the same people they're
displacing for the sex ratio change are
the same ones that are getting displaced
for the renovations," he said.
Because Everett will be an all-female
residence hall, many Everett residents
are planning to move to Graham or
Stacy dormitories. "These guys may end
up moving two different times," Staf
Mike Deimler, governor of Olde
Campus, which includes Aycock and
Lewis dormitories in the lower quad,
said most of his residents felt positive
about the move.
"Most everyone was glad the housing
department is finally doing some
necessary renovations in the lower
quad. They're also excited about being
the first residents of the new dorm,"
Deimler said. "There are some who
aren't too happy about having to move,
but they realize that they're the ones
who's been complaining about the state
of the dorms."
The reaction in Everett dormitory,
however, has been negative. Tim Cobb,
president of Everett, said he did not
support the move. "The guys here are
having to move enough already," Cobb
said. Cobb said the general consensus
in Everett has bee why the hell are
they picking on us'
"It's so much of a hassle. I'm going
to get an apartment next year," said
Everett resident D wight DeBree. "I
know it's got to be done. It's just bad
it had to happen to us."
Jeff Hartwig, a resident of Graham,
said although he was "all for it," he
didn't see where renovations were
needed. "I'm pretty comfortable where
I am, and I haven't heard any com
plaints from anyone else. Everyone here
seems to be satisfied except for not
having any hot water in the morning."
A second issue Buki said was a "pet
peeve," was that he would like to see
salt for icy roads included in the town
Otherwise, Buki said he really didn't
have a lot of grievances with the council;
he just wanted to run to give students
a fair voice.
The biggest obstacles Buki said he
saw regarding his campaign were his
age, inexperience and the eligibility of
students as local voters. Experience,
however, is something that Buki said
he believed he would gain before he filed
James L. Crawford III, a senior from
Philadelphia, is Buki's campaign
Like his candidate, Crawford is
optimistic about Buki's chance for
election. As part of the formulating
stage for their campaign, Crawford said
he and Buki had started reading town
budgets and ordinances.
"We wouldn't be doing this if Charles
didn't think he had a chance," Crawford
said. "A student on the town council
would be good for Chapel Hill. I hope
the students will support him."
Councilwoman Marilyn Boultonsaid

running for a seat on the council. She
said four students had run in the past,
and one was elected.
"I think the council members would
welcome it," she said. "It would be a

Gerry Cohen, director of bill drafting
for the N.C. General Assembly, was the
only student to successfully run and

elected in 1973 when he was a second
year law student at UNC, and he served
on the council for six years. He resigned

important for students to be represented
in town government, especially in a
