After vigorous debate, the UNC
Board of Trustees tabled a Student
Congress resolution supporting total
divestment from South Africa in
their regular meeting Thursday.
The BOT also approved two
construction projects and a proposal
to establish an admissions task force.
Bryan Hassel, student body pres
ident, presented the Student Con
gress resolution, encouraging the
University Endowment Board to
consider the University's full divest
ment from companies doing business
in South Africa. Student Congress
approved the resolution 15-4-5

Endowment Board to divest because

by the General Assembly, according
to Susan Ehringhaus, assistant to the
chancellor. The BOT appoints trus
tees to the Endowment Board.
J. Clint Newton, chairman eme
ritus, made a motion to adopt a
resolution to "encourage UNC to
totally divest from South Africa,"
and to send that recommendation to
the Endowment Board.
George Ragsdale, member of the
Endowment Board, offered a sub
stitute resolution, asking the BOT tc
table Newton's resolution and wait
for additional information. "I never
met a person who didn't oppose
apartheid," he said. "One of the
problems I see is that the issue has
been radically oversimplified and
Mr. Newton's resolution is consist

Endowment Board member W.

for the Wolfpack's 59-21 shellacking
at the hands of Georgia Tech last
weekend. According to UNC coach
Dick Crum, that game should be
discounted. "You might as well
forget Georgia Tech," said Crum,
who then proceeded to uncharacter
istically get caught up in the hype
surrounding the game.
"It should be one of the better
games in this rivalry," he said.
"We've had a lot of really close
games. It's the kind of game you like
to coach in and the players like to
play in. That's what college football
is all about."
Wolf pack coach Dick Sheridan, in
the midst of preparing for his first

Trustee William Darity said the
board members should not only

talk and talk about dollars over

Following the vote, Robert Reid
