No one in the capacity crowd in
Memorial Hall Tuesday night knew
what to expect from Maya Angelou.
"An Evening with Maya Angelou,"
sponsored by the Carolina Union
Forum Committee, was presented as
part of the seventh annual Martin
Luther King birthday celebration.
Angelou, who is most famous for
her autobiographical novel "I Know
Why the Caged Bird Sings," is
renowned for her spontaneous per
formances of speaking, singing and

UNC's next chancellor.
"The report will help the search

the next chancellor and what his
agenda should be," Robert Eubanks,
search committee spokesman, said
Tuesday. The report will be released
to the public next week.
The 100-page report was compiled
by six university administrators and
business leaders who are not affiliated
with UNC, Eubanks said.

Peters said DTH staff members
should be recruited from more diverse
areas of study, not just journalism.
"They (journalism majors) are not
the only ones on campus who can
write or can be taught to write," she
said. "We need the specialization."
Peters said she wants to improve
communication between staff
members by holding workshops for
writers and by encouraging more

Writers should give more thought
to the angle used in writing a story

most stories from a hard news angle

North Carolina is one of seven
states on a best-qualified list issued
by the national Department of
Energy (DOE) for the superconduct
ing super collider (SSC).
In a Tuesday news conference,
DOE Secretary John Herrington
announced the list as part of the
contest among state proposals for
placement of the SSC. The six other
states on the list are Texas, Illinois,
Tennessee, Arizona, Michigan and
New York was not on the list.
Because of opposition from residents
in Rochester, the state's proposed
area for the SSC, Gov. Mario Cuomo
asked to have New York withdrawn
from the race.
The SSC, with a proposed budget
of $4.4 billion, will be one of the
largest pieces of scientific equipment
in the world.
The collider will have a 53-mile ring
she said. "Everyone must find a hero
so they can say, that person cared
for me.' "
Angelou said Martin Luther King
was a prime example of a hero.
"He belongs to us all as every hero
shero does," she said.
She emphasized, however, that
heroes should not be super-human.
A hero must convince people of their
own abilities, as King did.
"He (King) speaks for us at our
best," she said. "He said 'I am out
here trying' and he's laughing, too.
We must make them (heroes) access
ible so a young person will say 'I can
do that.' "

Jody Beasley, a junior business
major from Fayetteville, has
announced his candidacy for stu
dent body president.
Improving student development,
creating an academic relations
board and establishing a perfor
mance assessment committee are
the major issues Beasley said he
plans to address in his campaign.
Changing the outlook of student
government will improve student
development, Beasley said.
"Right now, I dont think that
student government touches every
one's life," Beasley said. "I want to
expand the government outward to
let students get more out of it."
One way Beasley said he plans
to improve student development is
by creating a caucus board that
would give students an outlet to
act on issues. The board would
provide information and press
contacts, schedule meeting rooms
and arrange debates and lectures.
"The caucus board would prob
ably become the strongest part of
student government," Beasley said.
"It would allow concerned students
to come in and use our resources."
A proposed academic relations
board would provide interested
students with policies, procedures
and contacts from each academic
school, Beasley said. It would also
help government members learn
more about academic affairs.
"Right now, the student govern
ment doesn't know jack about
academics," Beasley said. "This
board will allow us to get academic
information up here so that we
know what's going on."
Beasley said the performance

in opposite directions. Scientists hope
that when these particles collide, new,
unknown particles will be released.
These new particles could be useful
for future scientific studies.
The next phase of the contest will
be a series of public meetings to be
held at each proposed site sometime
in February, said Earl Mac Cormac,
science adviser to North Carolina's
Following these public meetings,
the DOE will form environmental
impact statements on most of the
seven states in order to obtain more
geological information about the
sites, Mac Cormac said.
Based on this information, the
DOE should make its final recom
mendation to President Reagan in
July and confirm it in January 1989,
he said. Congress also must approve

Beasley has also been a Student
