"I like it because you can put your own stuff on the hamburgers," said Clayton Morgan, a sophomore from Greensboro. "They don do it for you. The hamburgers are still kind of dry though." Most people surveyed agreed that the brighter and spacious atmosphere was an improvement over the dark interior of the Pine Room, but said the food seemed the same. "I hated the Pine Room," said Mary Margaret Bugg, a junior from Durham. -"111 come here more often than I did when the Pine Room was open." "The Commons blows the Pine Room away; it's incredible," said Phil Bridges, a junior from Elizabeth City. "The atmosphere is better. It looks more modern." "It is a state of confusion upstairs in Lenoir," said Sherlene Bailey, a sopho more from Columbia. "Down here seems more organized." "It looks more professional, not like a student cafeteria," Morgan said. "Many people are coming in just to look," said Carol Gregg, part-time student and employee in the Sweet 9 candidates for S BP office now official By KATY FRIDL Staff Writer Nine candidates for student body president submitted petitions with 500 signatures each to the Elections Board late yesterday afternoon, making all nine eligible to run for student body president, according to Elections Board Chairman Edwin Fountain. Fountain said the petitions will probably not be completely validated by the board until Monday. "(But) 111 be surprised if any of the SBP petitions are invalidated," he said. Fountain said he had already disqual ified one Campus Governing Council 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. Candidates for student body presi dent are required to submit 500 signa tures on their petition in order to gain recognition as official candidates and be placed on the ballot. Brad Ives, David Dickson, Joe Stewart, Max Lloyd, Fetzer Mills, Reggie Holley, Doug Berger, Patricia Wallace and Dirk Marshall are now legally in the race. "The winner will be someone who can distinguish himself from the crowd," said current Student Body President Paul Parker on the large number of candidates. "It almost goes without saying that the race will be an interesting one," Parker said. "Conceivably, someone with only 11 or 12 percent of the vote could end up in a run-off election. That's kind of unusual." "The problem with a lot of candi dates," Fountain said, "is that it multiplies the possibility of serious candidates. Certainly, the race will be a lot tighter and the voting results will be much closer." In recent years the most candidates for SBP has been seven in 1978. counter offers doughnuts, pies, ice 'The Commons blows the Pine more modern. ' Phil Bridges Shop.

South African reform called 'cosmetic' By GENIE LINDBERG Staff Writer Recent reform efforts in South Africa are deceptive and put more oppression on blacks, said Dr. Bernard Magubane at a panel discussion in Carroll Hall Wednesday night. Magubane, a professor at the Uni versity of Connecticut at Storrs, is also the author of "The Political Economy of Race and Class in South Africa." The Wednesday discussion, "A Sym posium on U.S. Africa Policy: The Consequences of the 1984 Elections," was sponsored by the UNC Curriculum in African and Afro-American Studies. Magubane, originally from South Africa, called the South African policy limiting representation to coloreds and Asians while excluding the black Music department plans events honoring timeless works of Bach By ELIZABETH ELLEN Staff Writer "Ah, Bach!" Even Radar O'Reilly, the ultimate Iowa farm boy, utters the name of the master composer with awe. Neither obscurity nor synthesizers nor voyages into deep space has dulled the genius of Bach's work. His music still fascinates with its complex multi melodic precision. Currently enjoying a surge in pop ularity, Bach will turn 300 this March.

"We sold over 600 slices yesterday, and all of the sand wiches, they loved them, basically loved them. "I want to invite some of the local pizza delivery places down here to try a slice on the house.

"Change must come, whether the United States likes it or not, through the efforts of the Africans to liberate themselves," Magubane said. President Reagan was one of the first to commend Lech Walesa for his labor union efforts in Poland, Magubane said. But when Bishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa won the Nobel Peace Prize, Reagan's response was "official silence," Magubane said. There have been some changes from the Jimmy Carter administration to the Reagan administration in rhetoric, tone and public policy, said Jeffrey Davidow, director of the Office of Regional Affairs in the Bureau of African Affairs of the State Department. "The real debate does not concern whether we are for or against apar To mark his third century, the UNC department of music will sponsor many Bach events. The Bach festival's major event will be a symposium and concert Feb. 2. The Bach Ensemble, under the direction of the internationally known pianist Joshua Rifkin, will perform the St. Matthew Passion. Prior to the evening performance, distinguished guest lectur ers will conduct a symposium covering such topics as Bach fugues, concertos, improve upon silence, be quiet.

The bigger debate, he said, concerned the use of American leverage to help change policy in South Africa. "There is a role the United States can play to encourage those whites and blacks wanting to change," Davidow said. "This would have been unthinka ble five years ago. So, we can make changes one, two or five years from now that are unthinkable today."

According to John Nadas of the Relocation could be necessary By LISA SWICEGOOD Staff Writer 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 semester. 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." wants students on By MELANIE WELLS City Editor 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 representation in local government, and that he'd like to serve UNC students from the town's point of view. "It's not that I Want to represent the town," he said. "I want to represent students." Buki is confident Charles Buki about his chances for a place on the council, but he is also honest about his inexperience. "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 everything." 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 Lou Holtz Buki ! Kl 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 ford said. 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." to represent town council A second issue Buki said was a "pet peeve," was that he would like to see salt for icy roads included in the town budget. 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 for candidacy. James L. Crawford III, a senior from Philadelphia, is Buki's campaign manager. 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 she saw nothing wrong with a student 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 learning experience." Boulton said four spots on the counci I were normally available for new can didates every four years. Gerry Cohen, director of bill drafting for the N.C. General Assembly, was the only student to successfully run and serve on the town council. Cohen was elected in 1973 when he was a second year law student at UNC, and he served on the council for six years. He resigned in 1979. Cohen said he believed that it was important for students to be represented in town government, especially in a community like Chapel Hill, where students make up a large part of the town's population. continue Next will be the Concerto in A major for oboe d'amore, strings and continuo, which employs an unusual double-reed instrument. This concerto was disco vered in transcription for harpsichord.
