Food Service Director Connie H.
Branch said charges of contract viola
tions and low voluntary student ARA
expenditures made in a student
government-sponsored report last week
had no validity.
The report, issued to the Food
Service Advisory Committee last Mon
day, called for the removal of ARA
because of student opposition expressed
in a Feb. 4 referendum and allegations
of employee mistreatment in addition
to the charges of contract violations arid
low levels of voluntary student food
Members of the executive and legis
lative branches of student government,
the Labor Support Group, the Black
Student Movement and the Residence
Hall Association compiled the report.
Branch said the charges of contract
violations in the report could not be
substantiated and had no validity, and
that the company was doing a good
business on campus.
According to the report, ARA has
violated the following provision in
section 3.4 of the 1980 UNC-ARA
contract: "ARA will maintain a com
plete job description for each position
and each employee will be briefed on
his job description before being hired
and assigned to work; in addition, ARA
will provide a formal grievance proce
dure for all employees.
"ARA shall provide, the University
with documentary evidence of its
policies and procedures in regard to the
briefing of all employees regarding job
classifications and descriptions, pay
scales,-'benefitsV and the. grievance
procedures available to them."
The report claims: "ARA has not
maintained a complete job description
for employees or provided the Univer
sity with evidence of training records."
Student Body President Bryan Hassel
said food service employees had told
the report's authors that ARA had not
maintained job descriptions and that no
training had been done.
But Branch said the claims were false.
"When people are hired they're told
what they are to do."
Hassel said Charles C. Antle, Jr.,
associate vice-chancellor of business,
told him ARA had not given the
University documented training
Antle said Wednesday that he did not
interpret the provision in the contract
to mean that ARA was required to
document training records.
"My interpretation is that they have
to tell us that they have them," he said.
Antle said that every year, usually in
August, ARA and the University had
met and gone over the procedures.
The report also states: "ARA has,
only now, in the last month of a five
year contract given to employees
information regarding pay and promo
Hassel said that the charge was based
on employee allegations and that the
situation had been corrected since
Branch came to UNC in January.
"We're not saying (Branch) hasn't
done it," Hassel said."He did do it."
Branch said last week that he did not
know anything about withheld pay
raises, but could not answer on the

The Student Congress Finance Committee budget
hearings for the 1986-87 school year ended last
Thursday with a total of $178,442 allocated among
25 of the 28 organizations submitting requests.
Both the Undergraduate Art Association and the
Alliance of Minority Business Students were denied
Finance Committee Chairman Jody Beasley (Dist.
16) said there were not enough members in either group
to justify their budget requests. "The UAA had a poor
request," he said. "The numbers were loose, and it
was hard for them to justify their estimations."
Beasley also said the UAA did not seek any other
funding sources before coming to the Student
He said that representatives from the Alliance of
Minority Business Students failed to attend their April
7 hearing. Committee members could not get answers
to the questions they had concerning the organization,
Beasley said the congress must primarily fund
organizations that are open to more students. Minority
business students are a small and specific group, he
The third group receiving no allocation was the UNC
Marching Tar Heels. The organization submitted a
zero budget because they were requesting only capital
expenditures (for percussion instruments), Beasley said.
Finance Committee member Ben Burroughs (Dist.
20) said that according to the new budget process
inacted this year by the congress, all requests for capital
expenditures would be considered by the Finance
Committee after the April 19 hearing.
Then, organizations requesting capital expenditures
would go before the Finance Committee, which would
propose a budget bill to the entire congress for
Burroughs said capital expenditures were defined as
any equipment costing over $300 that would be used
for a long time.
Beasly said the Finance Committee budget alloca
tions were not the final amounts the organizations
might receive from the congress.
"I am in the process of doing a budget bill to submit
to the Student Congress," he said. The bill would be
available at 9 a.m. April 17, so congress members could
be prepared for the April 19 final budget hearing,
He said the entire congress would decide the total
amount each organization would receive during the
April 19 hearing. Each representative would be
provided with a copy of the organization's budget
requests, the Finance Committee's final budget bill and
a Student Activities Fund Organization report giving
the amount of money still in an organization's account
as of February 26, 1986.
Beasley said the budget bill would reflect the amount
each organization was allocated during the seven days
of finance committee hearings. The six member
committee began reviewing organization's budget
requests on April 1, and the last hearings were April
10. Finance Committee members are Beasley,
Burroughs, Jim Adams (Dist. 20), Todd Patton (Dist.
18), Neil Reimann (Dist. 12) and Brad Torgan (Dist.
Each group or organization requesting funds
submitted a characterization form, outlining their
purpose, membership and sources of outside income,
such as fund-raising or funding from academic
Also, general summaries of the categories, such as
telephone, office supplies and travel, and the amount
requested for each were submitted. An organization
could submit other pertinent information along with

The Phoenix was allocated $20,879.
The Yackety Yack was allocated $ 1 8,3 1 0.
The Black Student Movement was allocated
The Student Consumer Action Union was allocated
Four of the six organizations that were allocated
the most funds had their original budget requests cut
in committee hearings by more than $2,000.
Student Legal Services was cut by $6,576, and the
Executive Branch was cut by $2,450. The Phoenix was
cut by $18,751, and the BSM was cut by $3,500.
BSM Treasurer Craig Goodson said the BSM's
budget may be cut even more in the final hearing,
so he could not say how the initial cut of $3,500 would
effect the organization.
Beasley said Student Television was allocatd $6,261
but may be considered for an additional $5,000 during
the April 19 hearing.
"STV did not turn in an inventory of all of their
equipment," Beasley said. He said the SAFO audit
board brought the missing inventory to the committee's
"We cut every videotape request to zero, but theyH
get it back by the 19th if they submit an inventory,"
he said. Without the videptapes, STV would have
difficulty producing anything, creating more of an
incentive for them to submit the inventory, Beasley

HAWKS! HAWKS! HAWKS!
The celebration took place just
behind second base. That was the base
where Scott "Hawks" Johnson had
stopped to watch a teammate score the
winning run which he had knocked in.
Moments later, he was being mobbed
there. His jubilant teammates piled on
top of their hero who, with one swing
of the bat, had turned an 0-for-4
nightmare into a storybook finish. And
the crowd chanted.
As the blue mob rushed toward him,
Johnson had a few seconds to reflect
upon the drama which had just taken
place across the diamond at home plate.
Naturally, the bases were loaded and
two men were out, UNC trailed 8-6 and
the count was 3-1. "I was looking
fastball because I knew he didn't want
to walk me," Johnson said. "I hit it
well." The man, whose nickname grew
from his mother's blunder in the
freshman register, laced a line drive into
the gap in left field that cleared the bases
and emptied the dugout. North Carol
ina 9, Clemson 8. Unbelievable.
Boshamer Stadium, which has been
the backdrop for so many baseball
comebacks over the years, seemed
completely unprepared for its latest
miracle. As the late afternoon shadows
creeped across the infield, they appeared
to be dropping the curtain on Tar Heel
hopes. Clemson starter Oliver Whitaker
had pitched eight strong innings allow
ing four runs on only seven hits and
North Carolina was sending up the
bottom half of its lineup.
Paul Will, who in his own words had
gone "0-for-April" before this game, led
off the home ninth innocently enough
with a base hit to left; his third hit of
the game. "1 was just going for contact
and I blooped it into the outfield," Will
said later. "Then I just left it up to the
rest of the guys."
Catcher Matt Merullo followed with
another single chasing Whitaker. Tiger
first baseman Chuck Baldwin then
walked over to take the mound and
promptly walked Chris Lauria to load
the bases. "When Chris walked, I knew
we had a shot," Will said.
Mike Jedziniak then blasted a ball deep
to center which was caught, but scored
Will from third.

If the UNC football team ever gets
two players hurt at the same position
and has to bring in a third-stringer,,
there's not much hope.
At least that seemed to be the lesson
learned Saturday at the annual Blue
White scrimmage, in which coach Dick
Crum put his first two units on the same
team and made everybody else play
them. Not surprisingly, the starters and
top reserves comprising the Blue team
pounded the White, 55-7, in a game that
wasn't as close as the score indicated.
But why should it have been? The
White team started Roney Harris at
quarterback, a household name only in
his own household. Harris, a walk-on
sophomore quarterback from Rocky
Mount, had his first two passes inter
cepted and returned tor touchdowns,
contributing to a 21-0 Blue lead four
minutes into the game. Welcome to the
not-so-big leagues. When Harris' third
pass Jell mercifully incomplete, a
smattering ot applause rang out from
a crowd generously estimated at 3,108.
Harris was later relieved by David
Page, , who continued his teammate's
dubious tradition by firing his first pass
directly into the arms of Blue defensive
back Vic Bullock. However, Bullock
only returned the ball to the White 15,
which made Page's performance a bit
more successful than Harris's.
Meanwhile, the Blue team moved the
ball at will, rolling up a 42-7 halftime
lead as Jonathan Hall and Mike
Bowman took turns running the team.
The two had a fierce marksmanship
contest for the game's best competition.
Hall finished the day 1 1 -for-13 for 130
yards, including a 45-yard TD strike to
Randy Marriott, but Bowman was no
less impressive, completing 5-of-6 for
84 yards, including one 20-yard frozen
rope that he flung while falling
"Jon and Mike have done a good
job," Crum said after the game. "Bow
man has made as much improvement

UME admissions moire competitive
By JEAN LUTES
Has the Chapel Hill charm been wearing thin
lately? Maybe it would be easier to appreciate the
wonders of Carolina if you knew that, this year,
the admissions office will turn away nearly 10,000
people who would love to be in your shoes.
Out-of-state applications for admission have
increased, more than 30 percent this year, and the
admissions office has received more applications
than ever before, according to Tony Strickland,
associate director of admissions.
"This is, by far, the largest increase (in out-of-state
applications) weVe ever had," Strickland said.
" Recent favorable national publicity labeling UNC
as a "public Ivy," the more cosmopolitan nature
of the general population, and the excellent work
of the admissions staff have contributed to the
increase in out-of-state applications, he said.
"People are more sophisticated and able to realize
that the world doesn't end where the Jersey turnpike
begins," he said.
Strickland said three years ago there had been
a substantial drop in the number of applications
received by the University, but since then the number
had been steadily increasing.
Although all the applications wont be counted
until after May 1, Strickland said the admissions
office expected about 6,000 in-state applications for
3,000 places and 7,500 out-of-state applications for
Declining North Carolina high school enrollment
for the past several years was expected to decrease
in-state applications, Strickland said, but the
number of applications from in-state increased
about 5 percent this year.
University Provost Samuel Williamson said the
increase of applications was probably caused by
more national awareness of the merits of UNC
because of an "exceptional amount of favorable
publicity" rating the University as academically
superior and one of the best bargains in the United
Dean of Students Frederic Schroeder agreed and
added that the population and business growth of
the Southeast contributed to the number of
"The primary reason is the name of this University
has become known for positive reasons," he said.
The general reputation of Carolina draws students
here, he said.
The competition for admission of students from
outside North Carolina, which is already intense,
will have to increase to comply with the 18 percent
limit on out-of-staters set by the Board of Trustees.
Strickland said. The BOT recently increased the
limit, which was to be 15 percent before the change.
The admissions office had originally expected to
admit 20 to 25 percent out-of-state students next
year, Strickland said, until the BOT re-stated the
limit, making it clear that no more than 18 percent
of the freshman class could be from out of state.
Out-of-state tuition and fees for the 1985-86
academic year totalled $3,714, Strickland said, while
in-state students paid $794.
"We might have admitted 20 to 25 percent out-of-state
next year," Strickland said. "That's over
$10 million in revenue that we could have had from
out-of-state," he said.
The freshman class this year was 18.9 percent
out-of-state students, Strickland said. "We feel it
incumbent on us to first provide accesss to people
in-state and to provide the best students possible."
he said. "Those two goals are not always mutually
Within North Carolina, Strickland said, the
admissions office tries to get students from different
areas, representing the mountains, rural areas and
coast as well as the bigger cities.
"But out-of-state we're very cold-bloodedly out
to get the best students possible." he said. Last year
almost 900 out-of-state applicants with SAT scores
over 1200 were turned down, he said.
The learning atmosphere created by students from
other states and countries is "very much to be sought
after." Schroeder said. The students from out-ot-state
broaden the college experience, Ik said.
