H ',""i' miiiii nliiin mor m -uy i "iq 1 up y The Daily Tar HeelMonday, January 19, 19873; ran for senior offices By JUSTIN McGUIRE Staff Writer Anne Davidson, a junior English and art history major from Long meadow, Mass., and Dave Brown, a junior political science major from Oak Ridge, Tenn., have announced their candidacy for senior class president and vice president. The two are running in hopes of increasing "spirit and unity" in the class of 1988. said Davidson. "We'd like to make everyone's senior year more meaningful by encouraging involvement in senior class activi ties," she said. Davidson said that, if elected, she and Brown would continue success ful senior class activities such as card section seating at the Homecoming football game and lower-level seat ing at the last home basketball game. She added that they would also try to plan more senior nights out at local gathering spots and perhaps Faculty ,ro,npage 2 The committee's 1986 activities included making recommendations to the placement of outdoor sculp tures on campus and the placement of signs on buildings. It heard presentations from staff of the physical plant about the backlog of building maintenance and utilities needs, and on plans for reconstruc tion of the boiler plant on West Cameron Avenue. The report said the committee received several briefings on the progress of the current long-range campus planning activity. The Faculty Hearings Committee also submitted their annual report to the council, stating that it had received no requests for hearings and had not been called into session in 1986. Fordham, who was scheduled to preside over the council meeting, was absent because he was ill. Chairman of the Faculty George Kennedy took his place. Elections 4907 have a senior beach trip. Brown said they would work to strengthen career and graduate school days now offered. "We'd like to offer programs that would make decisions easier and less traumatic for seniors," he said. Brown said they would like to incorporate individual graduate school and career days into a week, of programs in order to increase awareness and attendance. The senior class gift is another important project to Davidson. "We think the gift should present a service that meets the current needs of students at UNC as well as provide an attractive and practical gift to the campus," she said. Brown said that they would work to increase class interest in the gift. "We might hold a referendum where seniors would actually vote on what jiliiiiiit Candidates for senior class offices Anne Davidson and Dave Brown they want to give," he said. Another possibility is holding a contest in which seniors could offer sugges tions, he said. Commencement exercises are the highlight of a student's career, and, therefore, they would work to make such' ceremonies more special, Brown said. He said that they would like to add one more all-class function to graduation weekend. "I think we offer a unique blend of enthusiasm and experience which would work well for the class," Brown said.

Union wall may enclose newBCC By JUSTIN McGUIRE Staff Writer An area of the Student Union being walled off may be used to house the new Black Cultural Cen ter, said Howard Henry, union director. Henry said that the walled-off area, next to the Union's TV Lounge, has been given first priority as the Black Cultural Center, but that no definite decision has been made yet as to the room's use. "About 20 months ago, a priority was estab lished for the Black Cultural Center," he said.I personally hope that it will be used in that capacity. That would be my first choice." Although nothing is definite, Edith Wiggins, associate vice chan cellor for student affairs, said a proposal stating the purpose of the center lists some possibilities. Included in the proposal is the suggestion that the center might house reading materials pertinent to Afro-Americans, she said. Other possibilities include a display of African and Afro-American visual arts, as well as room for performing arts to be presented. Howard said the construction of the wall, which began last week, will be completed when the glass is put in. Plans to build offices and rooms within the space have been put on hold until the final decision on the use of the room is made, he said. "It wouldn't make much sense to continue construction when we're not even sure what we're going to use it as," he said. The overall cost of the construc tion will be around $10,000, said Tom Sichko, superintendent of the work management office of the physical plant. The construction is being done by the physical plant and Prichard Paint and Glass of Raleigh, he said. The final decision on use of the room will be made by the admin istration and by the Union after it has been discussed, Henry said. No definite timetable for a decision to be made has been set, he said. Howard said that if the space is not used for the Black Cultural Center, it will be used as a meeting room for students and organizations. IF YOU WANT TO BE A PHYSICIAN, WE'LL PAY FOR IT.
