No final decision was reached
Friday when Student Body President
Bryan Hassel and Chancellor Chris
topher Fordham discussed a prop
osal to give the student body pres
ident the power to make direct
appointments to chancellors and
vice chancellors' advisory
The two discussed the proposal
and the administration's objections
to it, Hassel said. They also consi
dered alternatives and agreed to meet
again when they have discussed the
proposal with their respective col
leagues, Hassel said.
They did agree to find alternatives
to make the appointment process
more "participative," Fordham said.
Hassel said he felt optimistic that
some agreement could be reached in
Hassel made the proposal after
University officials rejected his Food
Service Advisory Committee nomi
nee, Marty Leary, a member of the
Labor Support Group. Farris Wom
ack, vice chancellor for business and
finance, said Tuesday that Leary was
rejected because his input at FSAC
meetings during the review of ARA
was "not constructive," according to
a prepared statement Hassel released
The proposal would change the
current procedure for appointing
students to advisory committees.
Currently, the student body presi
dent nominates students to commit
tees, then the chancellor or vice
chancellors review the nominations
before making appointments.
Fordham agreed that Friday's
meeting was only the first step, and
alternatives may be agreed upon
after further discussions. "I told him
that we ought to look for an alter
native solution," Fordham said.
"We're still looking at it. It needs
to be more participative."
Fordham said that he and Hassel
I . ...W- n.WN
. s -is
discussed some alternatives, and that
they would meet with Donald Boul
ton, vice chancellor and dean of
student affairs, in coming weeks to
discuss the alternatives raised
One alternative to the proposal is
to have the student body president
nominate twice as many people to
committees than are needed, Hassel
said. "That might be worse, because
in a case like Marty Leary 's you
could reject him without (formally)
rejecting him, but I could at least
determine what kind of students I
want on the committees."
Hassel said that although he
would have welcomed a full accep
tance of the proposal, he thought
that the discussions may lead to an
The main objection to the prop
osal, Hassel said, is that the chan
cellor and vice chancellors determine
who is appointed. "(Fordham's)
position was that the appointments
should not be totally severed from
the administrators in charge of the
committees, Hassel said.

Tar Heels tie FSU.
UNC's Chuck Tabor (77) doesn't realize it's no laughing matter
as head coach Dick Crum limps off field after being run over.
By SCOTT FOWLER
Dick Crum got knocked uncons
cious, the UNC defense played
like it was unconscious and Mark
Maye had a big load taken off
his conscience as North Carolina
managed a tie with No. 15 Flor
ida State Saturday, 10-10.
The Tar Heels' stalemate was
only secured after Derek Schmidt
missed his third field goal of the
game, a 37-yarder. The miss came
with 10 seconds left and was set
up by a Maye fumble on UNC's
last drive. Schmidt's field goal
hooked wide by inches, as Maye
dropped to one knee and
"thanked the good Lord." Eve
ryone else in Carolina Blue
breathed a huge sigh of relief and
thanked Schmidt and his back
spasms for keeping the Tar Heels
unbeaten at 2-0-1. The Seminoles,
playing inspired but erratic foot-
ball a week after starting lineman
Pablo Lopez was shot and killed,
dropped to 1-1-1.
The field goal miss was the last
in a series of miscues in a strange
game where Crum tore ligaments
in his knee late in the second
quarter. UNC tailback Derrick
Fenner was flung into Crum after
an FSU linebacker botched an
interception attempt and the
running back inadvertently
caused his coach a few more
problems. Last week Fenner
didn't hear the alarm, and this
week he rang his own coach's bell.
Crum blinked out of conscious
ness for several plays and did little
coaching in the second half after
being carried into the locker
room, letting offensive coordina
tor Randy Walker and defensive

est treatment helps AIDS victims

A locally made, experimental drug
expected to extend the lives of AIDS
victims and reduce its symptoms will
be made available soon to thousands
of people affected by the disease,
federal officials said Friday.
The drug, azidothymidine, or
AZT, is made by the Burroughs
Wellcome pharmaceutical company
in Research Triangle Park. It is the
first widely available therapeutic
agent for treating specific symptoms
of AIDS, acquired immune defi
AZT proved so promising in a
controlled trial that the company
asked the government to end the test
early. By ending the test, people who
took part in the study, but who had
been taking a placebo, a dummy
drug, would be able to begin taking
Several months into the controlled
trial, 16 of the 137 patients getting
placebos died compared to one out
of the 145 getting AZT, officials said.
The AZT patients, six weeks after
beginning treatment with the drug,
suffered noticeably fewer bouts with
other infections and cancers asso
ciated with AIDS.
Dr. Robert E. Windom, an assist
ant secretary for the U.S. Depart
ment of Health and Human Services,
told a news conference in Washing
ton that he had asked the Food and
Drug Administration to speed
approval of a new, wider trial that
could allow thousands of AIDS
patients to receive the drug in coming
weeks and months.
"Today's announcement repre
sents an important step forward in
the search for an effective therapy
for treating persons infected with the
AIDS virus, but it is only one step,"
Although the drug is a major
breakthrough in AI DS - treatment,
officials said they will only offer it
to victims with Pneumocystis carinii
pneumonia, the condition studied in
The form of pneumonia is a major
side infection of the disease and
experts estimate that up to 60 percent
of AIDS patients have been afflicted
with it from time to time.
Officials stressed that AZT is not
a cure and only curbs the effects of
the disease. It has been tested against
only a few of the many drugs related
to the deadly virus and could have
serious and even deadly side effects.
The treatment causes known side
effects such as headaches, nausea
and anemia but is generally thought
to be less toxic than several other
anti-AIDS drugs being tested at 14
university research centers around
AIDS kills its victims by robbing
them of natural defenses against a
variety of infectious diseases. AZT
interferes with the reproduction of
the AIDS virus within cells by
inhibiting an enzyme essential to the

Week of senior activities begins
By MARIA HAREN
It's "kick off" time, and all seniors
are invited to the Pit Sept. 22
through Sept. 26 for the premiere
of Senior Week, the senior class's
first official activity, said the class's
"The purpose is to kick off the
senior program, and to let seniors
know that we're working to create
a strong identity and unity of the
senior class," said David Venable,
senior class president.
The week will involve the 13 senior
class comittees, Venable said. Com
mittees had been organized in early
September after Senior Information
Day. Senior class T-shirts, with the
logo "SENIORS '87 The Best of
Times," will be sold during the week,
as well as sweatshirts and boxer
shorts, said Jackie Jarvis, class
secretary. A career information table
will also be in the Pit for the entire
"Our purpose is to reach as many
of the 4,000 seniors as possible," she
said. "Our job is to make sure that
4,000 people have fun."
Wednesday is the biggest day for
seniors. The Pit will be exclusively
for seniors, Venable said. At tables
seniors can give class gift ideas, get
information on various subjects
which effect their social and educa
tional lives, meet with career plan
ning and placement officials and sign
up for a football road trip to
The Nov. 8 road trip costs $35,
which includes ticket and transpor
tation, Venable said. Students need
to pay in advance to secure a place
before the 230 spots are filled.
"We're anxious to meet the needs
of the seniors and make their last
year the best it can possibly be," he
On Monday, an open Senior Class
Gift meeting will be held in room
206 in the Student Union at 6:30 p.m.
Anyone interested in the gift is
invited, Venable said.
Jarvis said she was not so con
cerned about topping last year's gift.
"WeVe grown away from that," she
said. "We just want to be the best

Mmority recriuiitmeet below par9 officials, stadlerts agree
By GUY LUCAS
Although the representation of blacks in
the student body has been declining since
1982, black student leaders and many
University officials say it is not because
UNC hasn't been trying hard enough to
"We haven't Hone as well with the
numbers as we'd like to," Chancellor
Christopher Fordham said. "It takes time
to make a change. It takes time for bright,
young black students to come to realize this
is the place to come."
In 1982, black enrollment peaked at 8.7
percent of the student body. Last fall, blacks
accounted for 7.9 percent, according to the
Fordham and other officials cited a
shrinking pool of black, college-bound high
school graduates, negative experiences by
blacks who did enroll at UNC and the
attractiveness of other schools partic
ularly predominantly black universities
as reasons for the decline.
But Hayden Renwick, associate dean of
the College of Arts and Sciences, said the
University has been holding back in its
"I think they are not using all the
resources that would enhance the recruit
ment of minority students," he said.
While the Student Government has
announced a new program that will send
UNC students to high schools with admis
sions officials, Renwick said the idea is not
"It's something IVe advocated for 17
years," he said, adding that he used students
in recruiting when he worked for the
Admissions Office from 1969 to 1973. i
But Renwick said the Student Govern
ment program is not worth the time it will
"It should be in an atmosphere away from
the high school and without people in the
Admissions Office," Renwick said. "Any
time you're getting officials working with
students and standing over students, that's
an inhibiting factor (for the high school and
UNC students)." i
Instead, meetings should be held in
churches, community centers or private
homes without the officials present, he said.
Renwick also said the University needed
to make a greater effort to help more blacks
"We're getting the reputation that we're
just admitting minority students and just
pushing them out the back door as soon
as possible," he said. "They go home and
portray a very negative picture of Carolina."
The University should institute manda
tory tutorial sessions for blacks and support
services, he said.
Renwick declined to say why he thought
the administration has not tried harder to
"I have always said that the best way
not to do something is to know how to
do it and do the opposite," he said.
Student leaders respond
Black student leaders said the adminis
tration was not at fault for the low number
of blacks at UNC.
Camille Roddy, president of the Black
Student Movement, said the shrinking
number of blacks taking the Scholastic
Achievement Test and the large number of
whites at UNC prevented more recruitment
"There are prevailing perceptions about
predominantly white institutions, and
they're not making minority students feel
comfortable," she said.
Eric Walker, BSM vice president, agreed.
"More blacks dont want to come to UNC
because there aren't more blacks here," he
said. "That of course means there are fewer
Walker said past recruiting efforts have
"In the past, . . . what the University has
tried to do is influence people already
thinking of coming to UNC anyway," he
said. "I think they had taken the attitude
that we'd like to have more minorities here,
whereas this year they've decided to actively
go out and recruit them."
Sibby Anderson, a Student Government
executive assistant and former BSM
president, said more scholarships for blacks
and a greater effort to get information to
high school guidance counselors could help
raise minority enrollment.
"UNC students have been saying that
when they were in high school, they didn't
get information from guidance counselors,"
The University has placed attracting the
best students above attracting minority
students, Anderson said, but that's not
necessarily a bad thing. It's important to
maintain the school's academic reputation,
she said, but minority students are being
passed over who haven't performed with
excellence in high school but who still could
succeed at UNC.
Archie Ervin, assistant to the vice
chancellor for University Affairs, said the
University's low minority enrollment wasn't
as serious as some people have said.
"I don't see it as a problem," he said.
