The Carolina Gay and Lesbian
Association's budget was a major point
of contention at the Student Congress's
final budget hearing Saturday, surviv
ing more than three hours of debate
and an attempt to defund the group.
The congress finally settled on a
Student Government appropriation of
$905 after see-sawing between several
proposals ranging from zero to $1,200.
The Finance Committee had recom
mended an appropriation of $1,697.
Much of the debate was marked by
confusion, and several congress
members voted in favor both of high
and low funding levels.
Jim Wooten (Dist. 19) proposed
defunding the CGLA, citing lack of
student support, programs that over
lapped with those of other area groups,
such as the Student Health Service, and
what he said was the group's antago
nistic attitude which prevented rather
than promoted understanding.
Other Student Congress members
also said they supported defunding the
group because that was what their
constituents wanted. Rob Friedman
(Dist. 16) cited a poll that he, Jody
Beasley (Dist. 16) and Lori Taylor (Dist.
16) had taken in their district that
showed 68 percent of their constituents
in favor of defunding the CGLA.
"The students don't want it, and we're
spending students' money," Friedman
said. "Liberals on this congress cite
student opinion on some issues . . . then
ignore it when it's convenient."
If 10 percent of the student popu
lation is gay, as the CGLA asserts, then

Also in Friday's meeting, the council
decided to consolidate the University's
scattered tutorial programs in one place.
According to the new minimum
eligibility guidelines, students must now
pass nine semester hours and obtain a
1 .0 grade point average during their odd
semesters in residence before being sent
to the appeals court.
W. Miles Fletcher, associate profes
sor of history said the present require
ment, where students must acheive a
2.0 GPA before graduation, was enough
of a burden on the students, so the
additional requirement was not
"Some students might not get a 1.0
or pass nine semester hours, but they
may meet cumulative requirements,"
Fletcher said. "It's a change that helps
students because it means that only one
criterion is applied (to their eligibility).
Because of the changes, cumulative
grade point averages and semester
hours will have more weight in deter
mining a student's eligibility. ,
Also in Friday's meeting Kennedy
said the University had not made any
progress in increasing the number of
black faculty members, although
December 1 986 was the deadline for the
University's affirmative action plan.
To fulfill the plan, the council decided
last September to appoint 34 women
and 30 blacks to positions. In the 56
appointments made since then.

Todd Patton (Dist. 18) said oppo
sition to the CGLA was shown by
reaction to Blue Jeans Day. when the
CGLA calls on people to wear jeans
in support of gay rights.
"Jeans Day is the one day of the year
when students make an effort not to
wear blue jeans because they don't
support the gay cause," he said.
Brad Torgan (Dist. 4) said the CGLA
was needed to help gays deal with the
hostility some people felt toward
homosexuality. Fear keeps gays from
openly supporting the CGLA as Fried
man suggested, Torgan said, and Blue
Jeans Day was meant to make others
aware of this fear as well as show
support for gay rights.
"You'll never know the fear of
walking down this hall (to the CGLA
office) and wondering if one of your
friends will see you," he said.
"YouH never know the fear of being
run out of your dorm because your
roommate found out you're gay. YouH
never know the fear of a friend who

cut him off."
CGLA Chairman Jim Duley said his

those offered by groups like Student
Health Service because the CGLA
addressed different issues. Many gays

staff as having anti-gay attitudes, Duley

Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m. the North Carolina
Duke lacrosse matchup was officially proclaimed a
rivalry. After 18 years of having sand kicked in their
collective Blue Devil faces by those UNC bullies, Duke
came to Fetzer Field and lost a lacrosse game, but
won respect. And how.
North Carolina's 9-8 overtime victory over Duke
wasats 19th straight victory over its next-exit neighbor,
but it had absolutely nothing in common with the first

By SUZANNE JEFFRIES
After much debate and several budget
amendment proposals, the Student
Congress voted 14-6-1 to cut the
Phoenix's original Finance Committee
allocation of $20,879 to $15,374.
The $5,505 cut would force the
Phoenix to print 6 fewer issues and
circulate 5,000 copies per issue. Todd
Patton (Dist. 18) proposed the final
The Finance Committee originally
cut the printing and publicity amount
submitted by the Phoenix from 28 issues
to 23 issues, and cut the number of pages
from 24 to 16, said Finance Committee
Chairman Jody Beasley (Dist. 16).
The congress reached its decision
after questioning former editor Dan
Cowhig and current editor James
Farrer about the circulation and student
demand for the Phoenix.
Congress member Jim Wooten (Dist.
19) asked Cowhig and Farrer why so
many stacks of the Phoenix were in the
Phoenix office in the Student Union.
Wooten then passed photographs taken
in mid- February, he said, to other
congress members. The photographs
show stacks of back issues in the
Phoenix office, he said.
Cowhig said that Phoenix staff
members were responsible for distribu
tion, and some did not distribute their
share of the publication.
Congress member Steve Griffin ( Dist.
5) moved that the entire congress go
downstairs to the Phoenix office and
see the stacked issues for themselves.
In the office, Farrer told the congress
that all 5,000 issues of last week's

tield. He spotted Brett Davy open at midfield and
delivered a perfect pass. Davy saw daylight and trudged
toward the Blue Devil net. Unlikely star Corey Gavitt
picks up the story. "It was a fast break. It was just
a question of who was going to slide over and pick
Brett up. My defenseman slid, and there was no
question that 1 was going to shoot the ball," Gavitt
said. "1 think (Coach Scroggs) would rather have had
one of the older guys take the shot, but now I don't
think he really minds."
Mind? Heck no.. In fact. Gavin's game-winning goal
made Scroggs look like a genius. The coach inserted
the freshman as a starter a week ago against UMBC
and Gavitt paid off with live goals and three assists
in two games. But his dart that zipped past helpless
Duke goalie Scott Schraif only 12 seconds into sudden
death was Gavin's greatest dividend to date.
The game was destined to create a hero right from
the start. Tom Haus gave UNC the early lead when
STAND co-chairpersons Matthew
I iedemann and Ingrid Brunk presented
4th District Rep. Bill Co bey with oer
100 proxies from UNC students. The
proxies echoed the three mam causes

Initiative, condemning first strike
weapons and calling for a comprehen
sive nuclear test ban.

Phoenix were distributed. "This will be
the policy for the coming year," he said.
He also said the Phoenix now has drop
boxes to hold the papers.
Chuck Brown (Dist. 13) asked Farrer
how he would improve student demand
for the publication.
Farrer said improving the content of
the paper and coming out regularly
would help. He also said more in-depth
reporting was needed. Cowhig said that
building up the staff would build up
Wooten proposed a cut in printing
and publicity by $11,112, exactly half
of the Phoenix's request for that
"Until you can build up a readership,
1 think we should cut the issues down,"
he said, adding that the Phoenix should
get more advertising to cut some of its
Paul Winter (Dist. 17) said area
businesses did not advertise because
they knew that Phoenix readership was
low. He criticized the Phoenix for
"wasted space" in the paper's layout
with large photographs and art draw
ings that could be used for more articles.
"After five years of trying to get off
the ground, this paper is not being
read," Griffin said. "I think now they
have to bring us the results before we
give them more money."
Lane Matthews (Dist. 14) said the
congress should either cut the Phoenix
totally or fund it. "Letting them go
downhill slowly isn't right," he said.

The congress voted to give the
Undergraduate Art Association (UAA)
$200 on an amendment by Brian Sipe
UAA did not receive any funding in
its Finance Committee Budget hearing.
Beasley said its members are primarily
art students and it seemed to be an
"academic faction" of the art depart
ment. Sipe and some other congress
members agreed that since the UAA was
open to all undergraduate and graduate
students and seeks to increase art
awareness on campus, then the congress
should allocate funds.
The congress also voted not to cut
the $1,000 requested by the Executive
Branch to help fund some Campus Y
Beasley said the Executive Branch
was "redirecting to get Campus Y the
funds they were denied."
Campus Y co-president Rudi
Colloredo-Mansfeld said the Y ran into
some problems with fund-raisers this
year. "We need to secure the volunteer
programs now, but the $1,000 won't be
spent until next semester."
He said the money would be used
for volunteer programs the Campus Y

program, help at a local nursing home

he stole the ball in front of his own net and raced
the length of the field to score only 44 seconds into
the game. Duke retaliated two minutes later with two
goals only 55 seconds apart from leading scorer Peter

of humiliation were over. UNC wouldn't lead again
