"TQppynght 1986 The Daiy Tar Heel Volume 94, Issue 84 EOT romrfts SLSnde divesting from outh. Africa By JO FLEISCHER Assistant University Editor 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 Thursday. Six trustees and Chancellor Chris topher Fordham comprise the endowment board. The trustees cannot force the Endowment Board to divest because the it is an independent body created 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 ent with that." Endowment Board member W. Travis Porter agreed, saying, "My duty was and is to manage the .uwestments-to maximize the Endow ment Fund." .Porter said it would cost the UNC aedl By SCOTT FOWLER Sports Editor The beauty of the State-UNC fray "that Kicks off at 12:15 p.m. Saturday r: -arKoian Stadium doesn't lie in the homecoming festivities, or in the fact that the game is a traditional rivalry or in the halfhearted cheering of a semi-soused crowd that is sand wiched between the Monkees and Michael. It will be a beautiful contest simply because this time the game means something, as 18th-ranked and 4-0-1 North Carolina tries to whip 3-1-1 N.C. State for the eighth straight a. ,;ear.-"It's always a great game where you can throw the records out," said offensive tackle Harris Barton. "Except this year you don't want to throw the records out." Indeed, the teams are a combined 7-1-2 entering the game, and both 4 would be undefeated if it were not 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 State-Carolina game, admitted to a case of butterflies. "You're darn right 1 am (nervous)," he said. "What you feel, what I feel, when you play a game like this is a greater sense of responsibility, because you know so many people care about it." State is led by quarterback Erik Kramer, who has directed an offense O nin iJ- tflf I Aft University $300,000 to divest, and $ 1 million every year in lost investment revenues. He said he would vote on the resolution "after 1 get informa tion that the action of the (U.S. Congress) has changed the situation, and (see) that I can do something without hurting the ! students and faculty on this campus. I want that information now before I vote; w ithout it I can't vote."' Trustee William Darity said the board members should not only concentrate on money. "The other issue is a moral issue," he said. "We talk and talk about dollars over human lives." ', Hassel said he was asking the BOT to consider a moral issue and that he had not seen any information that divestment would ;harm the University. He said other bodies, like the University of California, system and the Congress, had voted for divest ment, and those bodies were not made up of "wild-eyed radicals." The motion to table the resolution passed 8-3 with three members abstaining. Following the vote, Robert Reid Pharr, chairman of the Anti Apartheid Support Group, told the BOT he supported full divestment because black South Africans have asked universities to do so. "Minorities on this campus feel endangered because bodies like yourselves don't take action to help blacks on-campus," he said. "The antiquated arguments we heard today are the same arguments that were made to keep (blacks) off this campus before." Also Thursday, the trustees heard committe reports. The BOT approved the design for a proposed conferencs center off N.C. 54 by the Real Property Committee.

University Lake was recently at a level of 51 inches below full. "We requested that the municipal ities issue an ordinance for stage two (mandatory) conservation since we haven't received any substantial rain," said Joan Gilgor, administra tive assistant at OWASA.

"On September 3, we requested local government units to lift man datory measures following receipt of substantial rainfall," said Gilgor. Until now, no mandatory restric tions had been imposed since then. University Lake, along with the reservoirs at Stone Quarry and Cane Creek, is the main supply of water for OWASA. Under the water conservation ordinance, OWASA can call for mandatory water restrictions when the level of University Lake is 36 inches below full. Last week the lake was at a record low of 55 inches below full, but OWASA officials held off on going to stage two restrictions. "We were being optimistic that we would get some meaningful rainfall any day," said Gilgor.

Doug Terry, superintendent of Water Supply and Treatment for OWASA, said the drought should have no effect on the quality of water. "There may be some variations in the quality of the raw water from the lake but not in the finished water which has been through our system," he said. Along with trying, to reduce the quantity of water that is used by customers, OWASA has transferred water from neighboring areas into its system. "Since the drought began we have been negotiating for water from Lake Holt in Butner, through the Durham system and to us," Gilgor said. Maj.
