The poll site at the Medical School never opened because no pollsters showed up. "Ill take the blame for that," Elections Board Chairman Bruce Lillie said. "I thought we had pollsters there but we didn't." ; "The same thing happened at the Law School, but we got people over there," he said. A sign telling voters to go to Rosenau Hall was left at the Medical School, but the polls at Rosenau didn't open until U a.m. "The poll tenders just didn't get there on time," lillie said.

I should have recruited more people." The Medical School and Rosenau Hall poll sites are for graduate districts, and many graduate students may not have been able to vote because the Medical School wasn't open, said Brad Torgan, president of the Graduate and Professional Student Federation. "Whether or not itll be important I don't know, but it bothers me that the attitude of the Elections Board is so flippant about the whole problem," Torgan said. "It meant all the med school students had to go to the poll site at Rosenau, if they could find the time," he said. Lillie acknowledged that there had been some problems in the election, but he said "they are hard to avoid."

The lecture was the second in the "Great Decisions" series, sponsored locally by the UNC Office of Interna tional Affairs in the College of Arts and Sciences. It was also supported by the curriculum in peace, war and defense and the political science department. Lall said one of the main problems between the United States and the Soviet Union today were the constant charges of both nations that the other is cheating on nuclear test ban treaties.

"And the Soviets are saying that we're cheating by upgrading our radar." The two countries need to reach another agreement on the issue of nuclear testing, she said. Lall said the Soviets were very concerned with Reagan's insistence to go ahead with research for the multi-billion-dollar "Star Wars" program. "The Soviets see that we're techno logically ahead (with Star Wars research), but if we insist on continuing with it, the Soviets will go ahead with it too," Lall said.

"There are probably people who voted who shouldn't have, but I don think it will make a big difference," lillie said The number of people who voted for RHA president at the Union poll site was significantly less than the number who voted in the other races, Lillie said. A number of people probably realized that they weren't supposed to vote for that race, he said. "If I did it again, I would make sure to put the condition about RHA voting on the ballot," he said.

No one can be sure of what last year's Geneva Talks . between Reagan . and Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev accomplished because both govern ments agreed to keep the contents of the talks secret, Lall said.
