After initial total cut of
funding, CGLA debates
council, gets compromise
By GUY LUCAS
Funding for the Carolina Gay and Lesbian Association
was restored in a compromise pounded out by the Campus
Governing Council after lengthy and heated argument
The compromise gave the CGLA a total budget of $2,700,
with $900 coming from student fees.
For more than two hours, conservative members slowly
raised their proposals for funding the CGLA while liberals
held firm to appropriating $1,057 out of student fees. CGLA
co-chairman Robert Pharr and CGC conservative Frank
Whitney (Dist. 3) arrived at the compromise figure.
Over the protests of CGLA supporters in the audience
and on the Council, Pharr said, "If we can be assured it
won't go below $900, well go for it."
After the meeting, he said he had agreed to compromise
because some of the CGLA's supporters on the CGC were
going to leave.
"We were afraid some of our (CGC) members were going
to leave and they (conservatives) would have the votes," he
said. "One of them told us she'd have to leave at a certain
time. We knew they (conservatives) were willing to stay until
5 a.m. We could have ended up with less than $900."
Some CGC members who supported the LOLA naa also
expressed concern that liberals did not appear to be as

committed to keeping the CGLA funded as conservatives
were to defunding the group.
Before the CGLA budget came up, Jay Goldring (Dist.
7) said, "The right is more committed than the left."
The tension surrounding the CGLA budget became
apparent after the CGC had gone through every group's
budget and still had $7,585 to allocate. The rules called for
the CGC to go back through every budget again to propose
any additions council members wished to make. If the Council
were to follow the same order it followed when making cuts,
the CGLA budget would have been near the end. CGLA
supporters on the CGC called for the CGLA to be considered
first so conservatives would not be able to appropriate all
the available money.
Greg Hecht (Dist. 21) said, "It seems to me that certain
members of the Council are trying to bar certain organ
izations (from being considered) before funds run out."
Student Body President Patricia Wallace agreed. "It seems
we'd be a whole lot more fair to the CGLA, and a whole
lot more fair to the other organizations, if we go ahead and
get the CGLA budget out of the way," she said.
But CGC Speaker Wyatt Closs said the order of the groups
had been chosen randomly and was as fair as possible.
Random orders had been used throughout the budget
process, he said, and the rules should not be changed.
"Some of the people trying to go around the rules usually
stick to the letter no matter what," he said.
Bill Peaslee (Dist. 9) said the conservatives had always
stayed within the rules in committee even when they had
a majority. "I think y'all know you're going to win anyway,
so why don't we stay within the rules?" he asked.
Hecht disagreed, saying the rules had to be suspended
CGC completes budget hearings, provides surplus
See CGLA page 4
By GUY LUCAS
After a series of cuts to the budgets
of some groups and increases to others,
the Campus Governing Council's
budget for fiscal 1985-86 provides for
a budget surplus of $175.
Groups receiving cuts include Carol
ina Quarterly, Carolina Symposium
and the Executive Branch. Budget
increases included the N. C. Student
Legislature, Crew Club, the Black
Student Movement, Cellar Door, and
The Association for Women Students
and the Model U.N. Club received no
The CGC first went through the
budgets of every group and made cuts
totalling $7,585. The budgets were then
reviewed again and increases of $7,710
Jay Goldring proposed giving the
AWS $900. He said the group was
important because it was the only
women's organization on campus.
Margie Walker, AWS chairwoman,
told the CGC that the group was open
to anyone interested in women's issues.
She also said AWS had never taken a
political stance on candidates or wom
en s issues.
The Student Constitution prohibits
the allocation of money for programs,
services or events of a political or
religious nature, but that argument was
not used at Saturday's meeting.
Lori Spainhour (Dist. 18) opposed
funding AWS, saying that although
there were 12,000 women on campus,
AWS programs had an average attend
ance of 35. Many of the services AWS
offers are also available at other places
in the Chapel Hill area, such as the
Orange County Women's Center, she
But Greg Hecht (Dist. 21) said that
while AWS did not represent all
viewpoints, it did represent a view held
by some people. He proposed the group
be given $600 "survival money."
Goldring said, "If we do defund this
organization, we are in effect leaving
this campus with no organization for
After the CGC rejected the $600
proposal, Hecht proposed giving AWS
$300. "You're closing the door in the
face of people who say they represent
their point of view," he said.
But Fazio said, "I think AWS is
fooling themselves and fooling you if
they think they're representative of
women's opinions on campus."
David Brady (Dist. 12) said, "I don't
support AWS for the mere fact that it
got low qualitatives and the mere fact
that there are only 13 members."
The CGC also rejected the proposal
for $300 by a vote of 8-15, with one
Proposed cuts for the Carolina
Quarterly received the most discussion.
David Brady (Dist. 12) proposed
reducing the Student Government
appropriation from $5,060 to $1,000.
He said that since only about 3
percent of the material printed in the
Quarterly was written by UNC students,
and the group had only 22 students
working on the staff, it should be cut.
A financial base would be provided by
$1,000, he said.
"If you approve this appropriation (of
$5,060), you're saying . . . , 'I think this
deserves as much money as Springf
est,' " he said.
John Nicholson (Dist. 17) said he
supported the cut because the group
didn't have much to do with the campus.

Students from UNC, N.C. State
University and N.C. Central University
will assemble in front of the State
Legislative Building Tuesday morning
to protest and lobby against Gov. Jim
Martin's proposed tuition hike for the
16-member UNC system.
Martin has proposed that tuition be
raised $48 per year for in-state students
and $310 per year for out-of-state
students. Student Body President
Patricia Wallace, an organizer of the
rally, said she hoped to have 60 students
participate. A 45-seat bus will depart
from the Morehead Planetarium at 8:30
"(NCSU SBP) Jay Everette and I
have organized the protest as individ
uals with follow-up action from the
UNC Association of Student Govern
ments," Wallace said. "We will ride over
to Raleigh and deliver a message to
General Assembly members opposing
the proposed tuition hikes.
"Afterwards, we will gather about 10-to-16
students as lobbyists to meet
individually with specific legislators,"
she said. Wallace and SBPs from NCSU
and NCCU will deliver speeches and
answer questions from the audience and
House Speaker Liston Ramsey, D
Madison, Lt. Gov. Bob Jordan and
other leading members of the General
Assembly will be among the legislators
who have committed to meet with
students, and additional lobbyists are
needed, Wallace said. Students inter
ested in lobbying in the afternoon
should get in touch with Ray Walling
ton, an executive assistant to Wallace
and co-founder of People Against
Tuition Hikes, a Student Government
Wallington said the students who will
speak with the legislators are not
practiced lobbyists. "They are just
students, like you and me, telling their
representatives how they feel about
what they (the legislators) are doing,"
"Governor Martin doesn't feel that
the people of this,state should subsidize
the education of out-of-state students,"
Wallington said. "What a lot of people
don't realize is that the tuition for in
staters has been increased by 25 percent
over the last four years, and for out-of-staters
it's been raised by 45 percent.
"The out-of-state students culturally
and educationally enrich this campus,"
he said. "Basically, we're against the
increase all the way."
Jane Gordon, Student Government's
Student Affairs Committee chairwo
man and co-founder of PATH, agreed.
"The out-of-state students add diversity
to this campus," she said. "The march
is to let key legislators in the General
Assembly know that students oppose

UNC senior Greg Karpuk is a picture of dejection after his Tar Heels were eliminated from the ACC tournament with a 1 0-3 loss to Virginia Friday.
Tar Heels take aim eariy exit from tounraey

ATLANTA On the surface, there was little
more than stoic acceptance. As shocking as it was
to have been eliminated after three games, their faces
and their actions betrayed little as the North
Carolina baseball players walked slowly toward the
bus awaiting them outside Rose Bowl Field.
There were no outbursts of emotion, no swearing,
no hostility. To be sure, there were some long faces,

But mostly there was the appearance of deep
bewilderment. It hid the pain only from those who
hadn't been familiar with the season, the goal of
winning the ACC tournament for the fourth
consecutive year and the confidence they had
brought with them to Atlanta last Tuesday night.
A difficult search for answers ensued soon after
the Tar Heels were routed, 10-3, by Virginia and
sent back to Chapel Hill much earlier than they
ever could have predicted. Those answers did not

George Kennedy elected Faculty Council chairman
By KATHRYN L. HOPPER
Classics professor George Kennedy
was named the new Faculty Council
chairman in a council meeting Friday.
Kennedy, currently traveling in
Finland, will replace English professor
Doris Betts, who is taking a sabbatical
next year to work on a novel.
Betts was given a standing ovation
from about 100 faculty members at the
meeting. She also received an honorary
gavel and an answer to her constant
complaints about the campus parking
situation in the form of a sign that read,
"Reserved for Doris Betts."
In her last address to the council, she
said the University should allow pro
fessors to take more leaves.
"For every one who received a leave,
two who had excellent proposals did
not," she said. "There need to be morq.

at UNC," referring to the fact that black
faculty members hired by the University
tended to leave more quickly than white

The committee's annual report stated
that there was a negative attitude on
the part of white professors toward
black scholarship by and about blacks,
and it questioned the behavior of those
involved in recruiting and hiring.
The report says, "The claim that there
are no blacks out there to be hired
continued to be the excuse many used
to justify the failure of most depart
ments to hire blacks."
The council also awarded seven
faculty members teaching awards.
J. Charles Morrow, former Univer
sity provost and a chemistry professor,
received the Thomas Jefferson Award,
which is given annually to a member
of the UNC community who exempli
fies Jefferson's ideals through writing,
teaching and scholarship.

By KATHRYN L. HOPPER
UNC Chancellor Christopher C. Fordham III told faculty
members that a small, but vocal minority of students was
unsatisfied with a mandatory meal plan scheduled for next
At a Faculty Council meeting Friday, Fordham said the
plan, which would cost each student $100 a semester, was
accepted by students and approved by then-Student Body
President Mike Vandenbergh.
"Now, as the plan is about to be implemented, a small
number and I do think it is small have decided they
don't like it," Fordham said of students protesting the plan.
Fordham said students should direct criticism of the meal
plan toward earlier Student Governments, not at the
University administration, which he said had worked with
students and encouraged their input.
He said that it was too late to cancel the meal plan on
the basis that today's students did't want it. "lt would be
extremely difficult to have the institution (campus food
service) without a commitment lor the tuture, ne saia.
the meal plan, said he had wanted the Faculty Council to
discuss the meal plan, but he said time limitations prevented
He said after the meeting that faculty members he talked
with didn't know much about the meal plan.
"It's interesting to me that students are more aware than
their faculty counterparts, and that's unusual because of the
long tradition of faculty being concerned with student issues,"
"I want to encourage my colleagues to study the plan,
the grand concept and how it was implemented," he said.
Didow, the only member of the 1983 Food Service
Advisory Committee to vote against the meal plan, has been
the only faculty member to publicly oppose the meal plan.
"It's been lonely, but I'm generally known as someone
with principles," he said. "When I see something unfair
happen, it hurts me personally."
