Funds for many campus organizations were cut or
eliminated as the Campus Governing Council's
Finance Committee scrambled to balance the budget
early Thursday morning.
Among the groups eliminated in the meeting, which
lasted from 3:30 p.m. Wednesday until 6:30 a.m.
Thursday with a short break while the full CGC met
Wednesday night, were the Carolina .Gay and Lesbian
Association and the Association for Women Students.
After the committee had reviewed the budgets for
every organization, about $30,000 still had to be cut.
Finance Committee Chairman David Brady (Dist. 12)
said the committee decided to go back over the budgets
of all groups who had received merit scores of 20
"If it was a 21 or less, we cut some or all of it,"
he said. "I can't think of one that was under 20 that
we didn't cut."
The committee had proposed giving the CGLA $672
earlier in the meeting, but that proposal was eliminated
when the group's budget was reviewed a second time,
"I personally feel they weren't given a fair deal,
but the qualitatives (merit scores) from all the (Student
Affairs and Rules and Judiciary) committee members
were very low," he said.
The AWS was defunded because it was involved
in political activities, Brady said.
Bill Peaslee (Dist. 9) said, "Organizations that do
things that are political shouldn't be funded . . . ,
here's some of the things they've done: Women's
Committee on Central America, Anti-Apartheid rally,
Jesse Jackson rally . . . those all sound political to
The Student Constitution prohibits allocating
student funds for programs, events or services of a
political or religious nature.
But AWS chairwoman Margie Walker said those
events Peaslee cited as political used no student funds
and that requested funds would not go for those
Peaslee disagreed. "They're spending part of their
money on political things, and I'm moving for zero,"
Wyatt Closs (Dist. 10) said he was more concerned
with AWS' representation of women on campus.
"My reservations are not political, but they (AWS)
don't represent the student body as well on women's
issues, as reflected by their low (merit) scores," Closs
Cortez Taylor (Dist. II) said he had reservations
about whether the 13 members of AWS adequately
represented women's opinions. AWS treasurer Tonie
Goldstein said the low membership may have reflected
the conservative trend on campus. She said women
had not come to the AWS office to express
dissatisfaction with women's representation but that
such comments were welcomed.
Walker said the 13 members had kept the
organization alive and fulfilled campus functions, and
the organization had a right to exist.
Peaslee suggested closing AWS down for two years

before starting it again "with fresh blood and change
it from within."
Jay Goldring (Dist. 7) said that eliminating the
group would deny women a voice on campus.
"You are effectively denying women students a vote
for two years," he said. "I think a more constructive
attitude would be to change it from within (now) rather
than destroying it for two years."
AWS was defunded in a 4-1 vote, with Taylor
abstaining. He said he wanted to get input from his
constituents for the meeting of the full CGC Saturday,
when the council will amend and approve the budget.
Before funds for the CGLA were eliminated,
Student Body President Patricia Wallace said she was
not pleased with the defunding of AWS and low
appropriations to the CGLA.
Regarding any action she would take, Wallace said:
"I'd like to talk with (CGLA co-chair) Robert Pharr
and Margie Walker first about the cuts and listen
to fresh arguments from the CGC. You have to admit
there are people who agree on all grounds that they
should not be funded."
During the first review of the CGLA budget,
Student Body Treasurer Ryke Longest reminded the
committee that a two-thirds vote of the full CGC
would be required to override a presidential veto of
the budget. Wallace cannot veto individual items of
the budget and would have to veto the entire package.
She declined to say she would veto the entire budget
if money was not given to the CGLA and AWS but
said she probably would not approve the budget if
no money was given to the CGLA.
Longest said a presidential veto of the entire budget
had never been done and would require an emergency
session of the CGC to amend the budget.
The Black Student Movement received cuts in
speakers fees, travel and lodging expenses for the
Gospel Choir, Black Ink photo supplies and the
Coronation Ball and was required to increase its fund
Prior to the second round of review, BSM Treasurer
Lee Cooley said she was pretty much pleased with
the budget hearing. But she stressed that the BSM
was often underestimated and that its function of
recruiting minority students to UNC and providing
for the social welfare of black students should be

ATLANTA After 139 runs
and 191 hits in the first seven
games of the ACC tournament,
the fans at Rose Bowl field were
finally, mercifully, treated to a
genuine pitchers' duel.
North Carolina's Roger Willi
ams went arm-to-arm with Clem
son's George Stone Thursday
night and when they were unable
to go any further, the teams
respective bullpens continued the
duel. It came down to the ninth
inning, when Clemson's Steve
Dillon managed to fight off an
inside pitch from UNC reliever
Gordon Douglas and knock in
the game-winning RBI. The Tig
ers won, 3-2.
The loss sent UNC into the
losers' bracket. UNC plays Vir
ginia at 4 p.m. today.
In a game that seemed to
reaffirm the passionate rivalry
between Clemson and North
Carolina, the Tar Heels were able
to manage just six hits. Clemson
got nine hits, but it was not until
the late innings that the Tigers
began to put together anything
substantial offensively. They tied
the game at 2-2 with a run in the
eighth and got a walk and two
hits in the ninth off Douglas to
win the dramatic game, easily the
best of the tournament thus far.
"We never think we have it won
with Clemson," Douglas said.
"It's always that type of game. It
always makes it easier when you
beat 'em, but on those days when
you don't, it hurts a little bit."
The Tigers took a 1-0 lead in
the second inning when desig
nated hitter John Jay drilled
Williams' first pitch for a home
run way over the right-center field
wall estimated at 450 feet. But
Williams, who went seven innings
and allowed seven hits and one
walk while striking out six, settled
down quickly and Clemson did
no more damage for awhile.
UNC, meanwhile, was having
little luck with Stone (now 8-3)
who kept the Tar Heels offbal
ance with a variety of pitches,
mixing his fastball, slider, curve
and change-up with great effec
tiveness. Stone went 8 1-3 innings
and allowed only a pair of doubles
to B.J. Surhoff and four singles.
He struck out eight and did not
walk a batter.
"I thought Stone would give me
a good effort, but I had no idea

More than 10 percent of the
student body turned out to vote
yesterday on a mandatory meal plan
referendum, with the majority of
votes going against the plan.
Thursday's referendum was an
opinion poll to determine how many
students approved of the mandatory
meal plan that is due to go into effect
in the fall. About 2,500 students
voted in the referendum, despite
polls that opened later and in fewer
places than in other elections.
In addition, Morehead Residence
College elected David Venable
governor in a run-off election.
Venable defeated Leslie Nesbit 221
to 32. The race had been postponed
since February because of a Student
Supreme Court challenge between
the two candidates over possible
The three ballot referendums were
voted on separately, with each
question on the mandatory meal
plan being opposed by at least 91
percent of the vote. In the first
referendum, 98 percent of the voters
opposed the Board of Trustees'
decision to impose a $100 mandatory
meal plan for all on-campus
Voting in the second referendum,
96 percent opposed the BOT's
decision to raise the meal plan fee
$25 a year if the $100 fee is inade
quate to operate Chase Hall
In the third referendum, 91 per
cent said they opposed developing
a full board plan on South Campus
similar to the Granville Towers plan
if Chase Hall still doesn't operate
efficiently after $25 increases in the
fee. Much of the support for this plan
came from North Campus and
Granville Towers polling sites.
Eddie Gilgor, one of the students
who helped count votes, said the
large approval of the referendum was
an example of North Campus and
Granville residents targeting South
Campus residents for fee increases.
Both Lillie and Gilgor said the
wording of the referendum also
might have made it difficult for
voters to understand.
Campus Governing Council
Speaker Wyatt Closs (Dist. 10), who
wrote the referendum ballot, said he
agreed that North Campus and
Granville Towers residents might
have targeted South Campus resi
dents, but he said the wording of the
ballot was necessary.
"I wrote the ballots, and I took
exactly the wording in the contract
between administrators and (former
student body president) Mike Van
denbergh," Closs said. "There was
no way you could charjge it. No one
could say we tried to bias the report."
Closs added that students could
understand the wording of the ballot.
"I would certainly think students are
intelligent enough to understand
what was going on in the ballots,"
The referendum was supposed to
be held from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.,
but some ballot boxes arrived later
at polling sites than in the past
because there was no Elections
Board, said Elections Board Chair
man Bruce Lillie.
"There was some problem getting
the boxes out," Lillie said. "We had
basically only four or five people
working on the Board."
Normally, the Elections Board is
formed in the fall to work through
to the February elections. Lillie
wasn't approved as chairman by the
CGC until two weeks ago, and the
Council has not approved anyone
else to work for the Elections Board.
Lillie said the referendum was a
testimony to the people who worked
on the elections board. The lack of
volunteers to act as polltenders also

Several studies conducted between
1950 and 1980 show only a slight
increase in alcohol consumption among
college-age men but a substantial
increase in the number of women
Although the rate of male DWI
arrests is much greater than that of
females, the number of females arrested
doubled between 1977 and 1981, accord
ing to reports from the Chapel Hill
Carrboro Police Department. Public
consumption arrests followed a similar
trend among women, increasing dram
atically from zero in 1977 to an average
of 44.4 per month in 1981 among
women from 18-20 years old, and from
zero to 24 per month among women
Sue Gray, director of Health Edu
cation at Student Health Services, said
one cause of the increase in female
drinking may be the movement toward
"Historically, drinking was a male
thing to do," she said. "Now, as women
move more toward equalization, they
tend to want to appear to be equal.
"Also, women use alcohol for stress
brought on by different careers they are
being allowed into (that were tradition
ally male-dominated), Gray said. "The
social situation is loosening up
opening up the door for more drinking
Advertising and the media might also
be playing a large role in influencing
women to drink, Gray said.
"Advertising is geared toward
women. They show the rugged male
surrounded by women or the glamorous
woman drinking," she said.
Phyllis Grubb, a counselor at the
Alcoholic Rehabilitation Center (ARC)
in Butner, said 18 to 20 percent of the
45,000 problem drinkers treated by the
state last year were women.
She said the increasing influence of
women had made society's attitudes
toward women and drinking change,
leading many bars to have special happy
hours for women and encouraging
professional women to have a martini
lunch along with their male
"Alcohol is no longer a man's drink,
and therefore the problems that it causes
are no longer just men's problems," she
Dot Sparks is director of the Orange-Person-Chatham
ment Center in Chapel Hill, a halfway
house for recovering female alcoholics.
A 56-year-old alcoholic, Sparks said
peer pressure influenced her to drink.
"I hung around with a lot of kids
who drank," she said. She said women
who are under stress from traditionally
male-dominated careers are not the only
ones who drink. "A lot of women stay
at home and drink," she said.
Sparks said she believed alcoholism
was most often caused by an inherited
"In most cases it runs in the family.
In my case it was my uncle who drank
no one in the immediate family," she
said. According to Sue Gray, persons
raised in families in which one parent
was an alcoholic appeared to run a high
risk of becoming alcoholics themselves.
"Unfortunately, there is no way to
ultimately pick out who will become an
alcoholic," she said. "We know there
is a higher risk if there is a family history
of heavy drinking, and poverty also

Alcohol consumption by women is on the rise
Doug Berger, a former Campus
Governing Council representative,
sought a temporary restraining order
against the CGC Thursday night from
Scott Norberg, Student Supreme Court
Berger said he would seek the order
on the grounds that the CGC discrim
inated against the Carolina Gay and
Lesbian Association during budget
hearings on the basis of sexual prefer
ence. He also said CGC representatives
violated the free speech rights of the
CGLA because the CGC has unclear
guidelines on what is or is not political.
The Finance Committee recom
mended the defunding of the CGLA
during quantitative hearings Thursday
If Norberg chooses to grant a tem
porary restraining order, the CGC will
be required to set aside funds until the
Court decides whether the CGC dis
criminated against the CGLA, Norberg
said, and the time of the hearing would
be left up to the CGC and the CGLA.
CGC Speaker Wyatt Closs said
money set aside would come out of
funds that the Finance Committee has
already recommended for other student

Presidential search committee seeking successor munch like Friday
By KATHRYN HOPPER
RALEIGH - Speakers told the UNC Board
of Governor's presidential search committee
Wednesday that the best replacement for UNC
President William Friday would be a man very
much like Friday.
In a public hearing Jim Wilder, executive
president of the N.C. Soybeans Association and
former NCSU chancellor, said the next president
should continue to enhance the state's excellent
higher education program.
"We have enjoyed these benefits through the
leadership of Bill Friday, and we want it
continued," Wilder said.
The president should be able to handle a crisis
with honor, he said, just as Friday handled the
speaker-ban law with dignity.
But he said it would be impossible to find
another Friday. "We don't really expect you to
find a clone of Bill Friday. It would be wonderful
ii you could, but he doesn't exist. But it's the
personal qualities that will count more than
anything else you put in the pot."
The hearing, held at NCSU's McKimmon
Center, drew about 60 people. It was the last of
six public hearings held around the state. Friday,
64, will retire July 1, 1986.
'We have enjoyed these benefits through the leadership of
Bill Friday, and we want it continued. We don't really

and possible elimination of coed dorms as issues
that needed to be handled with care.

with myself and others my age becoming citizens
while our rights are constantly attacked," Everette
Everette said he was speaking on behalf of
himself and UNC-CH Student Body President
Some speakers wanted the next president to have
N.C. ties, like Friday does.
Wilder said the next president should be "home
grown or attuned and appreciative of our southern
values, heritage and tradition."
Charles Lambert, president of the NCSU
Alumni Association, agreed, saying Friday's
successor should be deeply rooted in N.C.
Speakers disagreed on how old the next UNC
president should be. Wilder suggested the president
be 50 years old.
"This would give us a leader who has lived
through several decades of change in our state and
could thus appreciate the progress we have made
and still be able to give positive leadership to our
But John Hunt, a retired engineer, disagreed.
"I'd hate to see you tied down to a specific age
because Bill Friday came in pretty young, and he's
done pretty good. So I think if somebody's young
and has it, he has it. And if he's old and hasn't
got it, he ain't never going to have it."
Philip G. Carson, chairman of the 32-member
presidential search committee, said the comments
were very helpful.
"A lot of people had an interest, and they'd
showed it. We had a lot of good input," he said.
The search committee and advisory committee
"panel, which includes UNC Chancellor Chris
topher C. Fordham III and outgoing UNC Faculty
Council Chairwoman Doris Betts, now will
develop criteria to be used in the selection.
More than 100 people have applied for the
$125,000-a year job, Carson said.
Advertisements for the position have appeared
in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times
and The Chronicle of Higher Education. The
application deadline passed Monday.
The committee had not set a timetable for
narrowing the list of applicants, Cason said, but
that might happen this summer.
