As Elections Board members
posted the unofficial results of
Tuesday's election, some Student

Pi Kappa Phi's Burnout, the
Pittsboro Street Extension, the noise
ordinance and other student concerns
were discussed by town council and
mayoral candidates Tuesday at a
forum sponsored by the UNC Young
All three mayoral candidates and
eight of the nine town council
candidates attended the forum.
Out of the six candidates called on
to speak about the Pittsboro Street
Extension, two supported it.
"The reason it's in the plan is
because we have a (traffic) problem,"
said mayoral candidate Jonathan
Howes. "Hopefully, Pittsboro Street
won't have to be extended, but right
now I don't see any other
Town council candidate Bob Var
ley said the extension should be built
"When Chancellor (William)
Aycock was around, he proposed
moving all the fraternities to Finley
Golf Course (Road), and some were
moved," he said. "I think it will
happen eventually. The extension
may also hurt some neighborhoods,
but in the long run it will be for the
benefit of Chapel Hill."
Mayoral candidates Julie
Andresen and David Lineberger and
town council candidates Joe Herzen
berg and Bill Thorpe opposed the
The town's noise ordinance is
another issue that has recently
divided students and town officials.
All candidates agreed that 80 decibels
is an acceptable level for outside
amplified noise, but the hours reg
ulated by the noise ordinance should
not be extended.
Currently, noise cannot exceed 80
decibels after 11 p.m. on Thursday
nights and 12 p.m. on Friday and
candidates would be vying for the
spot, Watts said, he would have tried
to get his name on the official ballot.-
"This is ridiculous," he said.
Neither District 17 or 18 had
official candidates. There will be run
offs in both districts, because none
of the write-in candidates received the
percentage of total votes needed to
win, said Julie Miller, Elections
Watts and Scott Rankin will face
a run-off election next Tuesday for
the District 17 congress seat. Watts
Saturday nights. The candidates also
discussed the possibility of a separate
noise zone for the University.
The candidates also discussed the
spring all-campus Burnout party,
agreeing that the Pi Kappa Phi
fraternity members should start
discussing it now.
None of the candidates would
oppose Burnout if the location is
moved from Finley Golf Course
"The traffic is the real problem,"
Andresen said. "If they move the
party to an on-campus location we
might be able to work it out."
The candidates were also asked
their opinions on the Orange County
Women's Center, proposed for 110
Henderson St., and the Chapel Hill
Homeless Shelter, located at the
intersection of West Rosemary and
North Columbia streets.
"I have no major problems with
(the Women's Center)," said town
council candidate Rob Friedman.
"However, I have a problem with the
special-use zoning. It's an intrusion
on a person's right to live in a
Special-use zoning permits the
town council to change the zoning
of residential property for another use
when the owner makes a request.
"The issue of the Women's Center
is the reason I got involved," said
mayoral candidate David Lineberger.
"There's nothing wrong with it except
the precedent it will set."
A campus-wide voting district was
also proposed to make voting in town
elections easier for students, which
would encourage them to vote. ,
All candidates asked said they were
interested in exploring the possibility
of a campus voting site.
The candidates also discussed
controlling town growth!

Self-confidence, mental training
and goal-setting are all vital to
success, former football star Joe
Theismann told more than 600
students Tuesday night.
"Self-confidence starts at a
young age," Theismann said dur
ing a speech in the Great Hall of
the Student Union. "You must
develop a positive attitude about
life in order to go after every dream
- "When you figure out what you
want to do with your life, sit down
and write it on a piece of paper,"
he said. "When you put something
down on paper, you're held
responsible for it."

Carolina Union and the Carolina
Athletic Association Homecom
The hour-long speech, origi
nally scheduled to take place in
the Pit, was moved to the Great
Hall because of a steady down
pour that started about 10 minutes
after Theismann began.
The former Washington Reds
kins quarterback discussed a wide
variety of topics, ranging from the
NFL strike to drugs in athletics.
"I can't stand up here and tell
you not to take drugs," Theismann
told the crowd. "You dont owe
anything to me or anybody else.
You only owe it to yourself."
During the speech, Theismann
made several references to New
York Giants linebacker and

who broke Theismann's leg during
a 1985 game, ending his football
career. ' : ; ; ' :. x ;

The search committee for a new
chancellor will hold a public hearing
today at 1 p.m. in the faculty lounge
of the Morehead Building.
The hearing will probably be the
only chance for students and faculty
to voice their opinions on the selec

"Any person who wants to express
his opinion can attend," said Virginia
Dunlap, secretary of the search
committee. "This is a chance for all
interested persons to give information

Student Body President Brian
