residents also to vote
for their 1985 governor
By TOM CONLON
Students will go to the polls today to vote on three
referendums concerning the mandatory meal plan that is
scheduled to take effect next fall.
Polling sites will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and
students will need their student I.D.s to vote.
Additionally, members of Morehead Confederation
Residence College will vote for their 1985 governor. The
race had been postponed since February because of a Student
Supreme Court challenge between candidates Leslie Nesbit
and David Venable over possible campaign violations.
Elections Board Chairman Bruce Lillie said he expected
about 5,000 students to turn out in today's vote and predicted
students would overwhelmingly vote against the mandatory
"I would hope we would have an even greater turnout,
but looking at past elections, I'm not sure it will be," he
said. "I'm having 8,000 ballots run off and will run off more
Paper ballots are being used because there were not enough
funds nor time to obtain computerized ballots and counting,
Lillie said. Finding polltenders is another problem, and the
current elections board is very small because of the short
notice of the referendum election, he said.
The elections board is generally formed throughout the
fall and operates until the February student body elections.
Students will vote on three issues concerning the
mandatory meal plan, although the results are nonbinding.
The Board of Trustees in 1982 decided to implement a $100
per-semester meal plan for dormitory students next fall.
Recently, a report by students Tom Terrell, Fetzer Mills
and Sherrod Banks on the mandatory meal plan stated that
little student input was considered when the BOT approved
Today's referendums are intended to send a message to
the BOT as to how students feel about the issue.
"I'd be surprised if the students didn't massively turn out
against the meal plan by an overwhelming majority and
that's not an endorsement, but a general consensus IVe gotten
from talking to several students," Lillie said.
Student Body President Patricia Wallace agreed that
students who get out to vote would probably oppose the
meal plan, but she said she was not sure how many would
vote. Although no minimum number of votes is needed,
a low turnout would send a weak signal to the BOT on
the issue, she said.
Wallace, who as student body president has a vote on
the BOT, said she has talked with various board members
on the issue but would not predict if the vote would change
"I can say the trustees will be open to talk about the
issue after the vote, but my feelings before and after I talked
to them were that they weren't willing to change it. It was
a financial decision and not a popular decision."
Wallace said that after the election, regardless of the
outcome, she would meet with members of Committee
Against the Meal Plan and the BOT's Student Affairs
Committee to discuss the meal plan election results and the
drafting of a resolution to the entire BOT.
The three ballot referendums read:
"I support the Board of Trustees decision to impose a
$100.00 per student per semester fee for the purchase of
food tickets for food services offered at any campus facilities."
"I support the Board of Trustees decision to raise the
$100.00 per student per semester for the purchase of food
tickets in stages of $125,000, $150.00, $175.00 and $200.00
at intervals of not less than one year, if revenues are
inadequate to operate Chase Hall as a cost center."
"I support the Board of Trustees decision that if Chase
Hall cannnot be funded through the per student per semester
fees, a room and board plan for South Campus similiar
to, but not identical to, the Granville Towers plan, will be
developed for a sufficient number of students from South
Campus to assure adequate revenues for the proper
amortization of the project and operation of the services."
All three referendums also state, "I do not support the
aforementioned decision by the Board of Trustees."

UNC graduate student Michael Boyd
Evans is scheduled to make his first
appearance Friday in Orange County
District Court on charges of second-",
degree kidnapping and having a weapon
on campus, a spokeswoman for the
Orange County District Attorney said
Evans was taken into police custody
on April 10 after he barricaded himself
in a second floor room in Ruffin
dormitory. Evans, 25, entered the room
of Kelly Grady, a junior from Danville,
Va., around 7:05 p.m. and was report
edly armed with a .32-caliber handgun.
Grady had taken out a warrant for
Evans' arrest on March 13, charging
him with assault in an incident that
occurred near Ruffin.
With the help of Frederic W.
Schroeder Jr., dean of students, Uni
versity police escorted Evans from the
building around 9:20 p.m.
Most Ruffin residents, including
Grady, were elcTiated at the beginning
of the incident.
University police would not comment
on why Evans had gone to Grady's
room or on what he had planned to
do once he got there.
University police obtained warrants
on April 1 1 for Evans' arrest while he
was being held at North Carolina
Memorial Hospital undergoing psychi
atric evaluation. The warrants were not
served until April 15 because Evans had
been transferred to Charter Hill Hos
pital in Greensboro for evaluation,
Greensboro police said. Greensboro
police arrested Evans when he was
released from the hospital.
Evans was released April 16 from the
Guilford County Jail on $500 bond,
Greensboro police said. .
David Spano, area director of Olde
Campus, said that additional security
measures had been taken at Ruffin to
prevent any similar incidents after
Evans' release, but he would not
elaborate on what specific types of
security measures had been taken.
, University police contacted Spano on
Monday, immediately after Evans had
been released from the hospital, he said.
On Tuesday they contacted him again
when Evans was released on bail, he
Spano added that he was confident
that the residents of Ruffin were safe.

Shevchenko speaking in Memorial Hall in Union Forum Lecture Series
Shevchenko lectures on Soviets,
warns U.S. of regime paranoia
By ANDY TRINCIA
Assistant State and National Editor
The United States must never back the Soviet Union
into a corner or the "paranoid" superpower could respond
with severe consequences, Arkady Shevchenko told 1,500
people in Memorial Hall Wednesday night.
"We have to understand the Soviet regime and the
people," said Shevchenko, the highest-ranking Soviet
official ever to defect to the West. "We also should never
push them into a corner or they could respond irrationally
with consequences which could be unpredictable."
Shevchenko defected to the United States in April 1978,
and had served as Soviet ambassador and under-secretary
general to the United Nations. His lecture, "A View From
The Kremlin," was the last of the Union Forum
Committee's lectures this semester.
Shevchenko said current Soviet leader Mikhail
Gorbachev is one of the country's youngest leaders in
many years, a factor in his favor.
"Gorbachev is a leader who is much younger,"
Shevchenko said. "Now at least the Soviet Union has
a person who is relatively young. I would say the man
has what can be called an 'intriguing charisma.' He
presents himself very well and is intellectual."
Shevchenko drew laughs from the crowd with a remark
about the ages of several recent Soviet leaders who died
within a short time. "But of course, the President of the
United States is in his seventies. But he's in much better
shape than the Soviet leaders were," Shevchenko said,
noting the heavy drinking habits of Soviet leaders.
Shevchenko said the ruling Soviet Politburo is currently
a small group of 10 who have no division of power or
"The Politburo is a small group at the top," he said.
"They have no procedure as to how they operate. They
let themselves decide who will be the new members of
There is an intense desire for power in the high levels
of the Soviet regime, Shevchenko said.
"There's a greed for power over there," he said.
"Whether Gorbachev will become a new (type of) leader
remains to be seen. It will take time."
Shevchenko said Gromyko would continue to be
instrumental in Soviet politics, despite differences with
"Gromyko, my former boss, will continue to be the
man behind Gorbachev," Shevchenko said. "However,
Gorbachev is interested in domestic affairs and Gromyko
is interested in shaping the foreign policy of the Soviet

leaders from Kruschev through Gorbachev, published his
first book in the West, Breaking With Moscow, in

Tar Heels gelt wake-nap call, pomumd Duals
By KURT ROSENBERG
ATLANTA Just the thought of awakening at
6:30 in the morning usually is enough to make anyone
shudder. And perhaps the North Carolina baseball
team viewed its early-morning game on Wednesday
as something less than humane.
But if that was the case, the Tar Heels clearly did
not show any signs of it in their ACC tournament
opener against Duke. The 10 a.m. start may not have
seemed humane, but it was far more humane than
the way UNC treated the Blue Devils. After rising
just as daylight was breaking, the Tar Heels proceeded
to beat the daylights out of Duke, 15-2.
The team arrived at its hotel after a long bus ride
Tuesday night, had a meeting, then quickly went to
bed. And when the Tar Heels arrived at Rose Bowl
Field the next morning, they looked as refreshed as
if they had been playing a lazy afternoon game back
home at Boshamer Stadium.
It was the Blue Devils who appeared dead tired,
and UNC put them out of their misery in a hurry,
scoring four times in the first, twice in the second,
three more in the fourth and pounding out 19 hits
overall, nine of which went for extra bases. Greg
Karpuk's pitching was as sharp as it's ever looked,
as he went seven innings and allowed no runs and
just three hits.
Duke could not advance a runner past second base
until the ninth inning, by which time the game had
long since been decided. The Blue Devils' pitching
was horrendous, and their fielding not much better
as they committed five errors.
Duke coach Larry Smith offered a concise synopsis:
"We'd like to put this one behind us as quickly as
North Carolina coach Mike Roberts had every right
to be pleased, although he expressed his feelings with
"It's definitely a good game for us," he said, making
sure to emphasize that the tournament still has a ways
to go. "I do feel that we played today the way we
are capable of playing at times."
The Tar Heels play their second-round game at
7:30 p.m. today against Clemson, a 17-12 winner over
Maryland Wednesday night.
For the few who woke up in time to catch the
beginning of the game, they soon found that their
early-morning yawns gave way to even more yawns.
There really was no doubt about the outcome after
In the bottom of the first, Jim Stone led off with
a walk, Walt Weiss singled him to second and B.J.
Surhoff (four RBIs on the day) doubled Stone home.
One out later, Devy Bell's towering drive to right
barely landed inside the park, going for a double and
scoring two more runs. Then Brian Chandler singled,
scoring Bell and giving UNC a quick 4-0 lead.
In the second, Stone doubled down the right-field
line, Weiss laid down a perfect bunt single and Surhoff
followed with a double to right to score both of them.
Karpuk, now 7-2, used his fastball almost exclusively
and baffled the Duke hitters as he moved the ball
around the strike zone at will.
"Until they could proved they could hit the fastball,
I was just gonna going keep throwing it," he said.
"They never proved they could hit it consistently."
The UNC senior struck out five and walked three,
and he appreciated the support provided by the North
"I knew all I had to do was keep the runs down,"
he said. "It (the early lead) was nice, but waiting
between innings for so long kind of breaks your
momentum. But I wouldn't mind getting 15 runs every
UNC refused to let up after its initial onslaught,
scoring three in the fourth on an RBI triple by Mike
Jedziniak, another double by Stone, a single by Weiss
and a fielder's choice that Surhoff hit. Duke starter
Scott Bromby (8-4) lasted just three innings, giving
up nine runs (seven of them earned) and 10 hits.
In the sixth, Bell singled home Scott Johnson to
make the score 10-0. As if that wasn't enough, the
Tar Heels scored five more times in the eighth when
Johnson hit a two-run homer (his 21st of the season),
Matt Merullo singled Bell home and freshman Bobby
Larrabee tripled down the left-field line to score Chris
Lauria and Merullo.
Bill Robinson pitched the eighth inning for North
Carolina and freshman David Trautwein came in to
pitch the ninth, when Duke score its only runs. Mark
Carlozzi led off with a single and Rich Beviglia
followed with a homer to right field.
Bell led UNC with four hits and three RBIs, Surhoff
and Stone each had two doubles, and Stone scored
The feeling afterward was that rising at the crack
of dawn may have worked to the Tar Heels' advantage.

Finance committee proposes $1,000 cut in CGLA funds
By GUY LUCAS
The Carolina Gay and Lesbian
Association was cut by almost $1,000
in a proposal by the Campus Governing
Council's Finance Committee during
budget hearings Wednesday night.
The committee recommended that
the CGC allocate $672 of the proposed
$1,600 CGLA budget, but the CGLA
will fight to obtain more funding.
The CGLA had been named by CGC
conservatives earlier this year as a major
target for budget cuts.
Robert Pharr, CGLA co-chair, said,
"We have every intention of using every
means at our disposal to reverse what
we feel was a bad decision by the
Council." He declined to hiention any
specific steps the CGLA might take, but
he said the group would wait to see what
happens at the final budget meeting
Four of the eight CGLA programs
were eliminated entirely, including the
newsletter Lambda and Gay Awareness
Week. Voting almost strictly followed
ideological lines, with the conservatives
forming a solid block vote.
Opposition to the CGLA started
when the committee discussed the
outreach program, which Pharr said
would answer questions about homo
sexuality from both gays and straights.
Bill Peaslee (Dist. 9) quoted N.C. law,
which makes "sexual intercourse coun
ter to nature" including oral and anal
intercourse a felony.
"We don't have outreach programs
for other people who commit crimes,
and I don't think we should have this
one," Peaslee said.
But Pharr said, "If you believe only
homosexuals engage in anal or oral sex
you need desperately to be educated."
He also quoted three court cases that
made it illegal not to recognize gay
