Discrimination exists in many
forms at UNC, mainly because
students don't respect others ideas
and the University doesn't teach
values, a UNC administrator said in
a speech Wednesday night.
"A true university cannot exist
unless all who are members of the
community have the desire to learn,
the desire to risk and the desire to
change and grow," said Donald
Boulton, vice chancellor and dean
of student affairs.

Great Hall concert tonight to fund trip to
By JAMES BURRUS
The Toronto Exchange Club is
sponsoring a five-band concert in the
Carolina Union's Great Hall tonight
to raise money for a bus to transport
the club's 40 members to Canada.
The five bands Teasing the
Korean, Blue Note Special, Satellite
Boyfriend, The Smoking Phones
and Light In August are donating
their time and talent for the cause.
The cultural exchange club needs
to raise $3,000 to rent a bus for
transportation to Canada in Janu
ary, said club member Smithson
Mills. The group has already held
pockets of hell."
Boulton said discrimination exists
"because this University is composed
of real people who bring with them
not just their stereo and their clothes,
but their values as well."
The student body has changed
more in the past 15 years than it has
in the previous 175, Boulton said.
The percentage of women on campus
has grown from 29 percent to 60
percent; the number of blacks has
increased from 100 in 1972 to 2,000;
and the Native American population
has grown from 3 to almost 400, he
"We have so much to learn from
each other," he said. "Our diversity
should not be measured in terms of
numbers it should be measured
in terms of what we can learn from

bake and doughnut sales to earn

"This year our fund-raising tech
niques are more innovative," said
Mills. "Since the drinking age has
gone up and students can't go to
bars, we thought it might be a good
idea to set up some form of enter
tainment for students."
The Toronto Exchange began in
1950 when William Friday, former
president of the University of North
Carolina, and the president of the
University of Toronto decided to
create a cultural exchange program
between the two universities.

Every year students from the
University of Toronto come to
Chapel Hill for a week and are
hosted by UNC-CH group
members. Last week when the
Canadians visited the Chapel Hill
campus, they went to a football game
and a black Southern church.
When the UNC CH group visits
the University of Toronto in Janu

lectures, go sight-seeing, watch a
hockey game and go skiing.

Tax law wourt cunt
By DONNA LEINWAND
Assistant State & National Editor
Changes in tax laws making
charitable donations less beneficial
to the taxpayer probably won't affect
the amount of money the University
receives, said a member of UNC's
"People are giving to Chapel Hill
because of love for the institution
and to strengthen higher education,"
said Robert Scully, director of the
Chancellor's Club. "Tax benefits are
not the primary motive to give."
The tax bill, signed by President
Reagan in October, allows deduc
tions for charity only if the tax payer
itemizes deductions. This is the last
year that non-itemizers can deduct
100 percent of their donations from
their overall income, which reduces
the amount of income subject to tax.
Also, the marginal tax rates have
been reduced from a maximum of
50 percent to a maximum of 28
percent. This may raise the after-tax
cost of a donation.
For example, if a person is in the
50 percent tax bracket this year and
makes a $100 donation, the after
tax cost of the donation is $50. Under
the new system, if a person is in the
highest tax bracket of 28 percent and
makes a $100 donation, the after
tax cost is $72.
Those who give large donations
of appreciated property such as
stocks, art and property may end up
paying higher taxes than they would
under the present system. Those who
give appreciated gifts can still
subtract the fair market value of the
donation from their overall income.
If the donation reduces heir income
they may be subject to the new
minimum tax of 21 percent. The
minimum tax was designed so that
rich taxpayers give at least 21 percent
of their income to the government.
"Many people have predicted
drastic reductions in donations," said
Leslie Bram, director of planned
giving at UNC. "Some people are
saying as much as 16.5 percent. But
I don't think the people at UNC do
it for tax reasons."
Bram said the development office
is seeing an increase in donations.
"Everyone is giving away appre
ciated property," she said. "They are

because of illness or other serious
problems, arrangements can be

Scully said he expects donations
to increase even more as the deadline
approaches. He said the develop
ment directors in the office have been
encouraging early donations.
The development office sent out
a letter to all the members of the
Chancellor's Club with a brochure
titled, "Do You Know About Tax
Reform and Charitable Giving at the
University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill," about three changes in
the tax system that might affect
donors, Scully said.
"We want to help people under

said. Tuition contributes only 6;
percent, she added. ;
UNC may need even more private
support in the coming year, said
William Massey, the director of the
Annual Fund, a group of programs
designed to build voluntary support
for the University.
This year, Gov. Jim Martin
advised UNC departments to devise
a budget that allowed for a 3 percent
cut in federal funds, Massey said.
"What happens when federal
support is cut?" he said. "You can't
just let 40 professors go. Who is
going to pick it up your alumni.
I don't have a crystal ball, but I don't
think they'll stop giving because of
Massey said he thinks the tax laws
will make people look more carefully
into their tax picture but tax benefit
is not the motivation for donation.
"Tax deduction is a little perk,"
he said. "Most people contribute
because they understand the real
jewel and the potential we have here.
Most alumni would cringe if they
thought UNC was becoming second
rate." Institutions like N.C. State Uni
versity and UNC have a loyal alumni
