UNC got a little closer to Wall
Street Thursday following the dona
tion of a Teletrade, an electronic
stock market billboard, to the
School of Business Administration.
. The Teletrade, donated by Wheat,
'. First Securities, was presented to the
school after a brief ceremony by
Robert E. Bratcher, vice president
and manager of Wheat's Durham
.. "I see the teletrade as a living
window on the world of investment,"
said John P. Evans, dean of the
School of Business Administration.
Evans accepted the equipment on
behalf of the School.
"It's rather exciting to have this
new technology . . . especially since
we do teach a number of classes in
investment," Evans said.
The Teletrade is directly tied to
the New York Stock Exchange and
carries the same information as the
equipment on the floor of the
exchange on Wall Street.
Information on trades comes into
the UNC Teletrade about three
seconds after the trade occurs.

The Teletrade was purchased in
a package with other equipment by
Wheat, First Securities, and a
specific price was not available,
"But if (an individual were to
purchase one for himself, it would

probably cost around $2,600,"
Wheat also paid for the instal

continue to pay for its maintenance.

Democrats favor budget plan
By SHARON KEBSCHULL
Democratic legislators reacted
favorably to Gov. Jim Martin's
support of the Basic Education
Program in his two-year budget
proposal but were hesitant to com
pletely endorse the budget Thursday.
"The budget represents a ringing
endorsement of many Democratic
initiatives, for which I am pleased,"
said Lt. Gov. Bob Jordan in a
prepared statement. "1 am concerned
that he did not propose to fully fund
the basic education plan and 1 am
committed to finding ways to do
The budget includes a $357 million
increase in public school funding
under the BEP, plus funding
increases to ease prison overcrowd
ing, expand anti-drug abuse pro
grams, hire 100 new state Highway
Patrol troopers, and repair and
construct state buildings. It also
proposes a 4.5 percent pay raise for
state employees and begins statewide
implementation of the Career
The budget cuts state funding for
indigent women's abortions, from
$924,500 per year to $200,000. It also
changes the eligibility requirements
so that the state would pay only for
abortions coming from rape or incest
cases or when a woman's life is in
State Sen. Tony Rand, D
Cumberland, said he supports the
increase in prison funding.
"It's no question (that it's neces
sary)," he said. "If we don't do that
we stand the risk of the federal courts
coming in to take over."
But some Democrats expressed
concern over the revenue estimates

Much of what the legislature
decides will depend on the latest

projections are higher than the ones
he last saw, he said.

The Career Ladder Plan, which
Martin wants to start in 1988-89, is
set up to increase the pay of deserv
ing teachers. Some Democrats have
said that the program, which" is being
tried experimentally in some school
systems across the state, needs its
problems worked out before it is
implemented statewide. ,
Martin also proposed to postpone
spending for remedial summer
school until 1988-89. Democrats are
not likely to allow him that, Rand
said, because they feel the program
has been postponed enough already.
"I am greatly concerned about
delaying the summer school pro
gram," he said. "It's my understand
ing that many of those who go to
summer school would not go if it
weren't for the program."
Martin set out his proposals at a
meeting Wednesday of the Advisory
Budget Commission, which agreed
to review them and meet again Feb.
