Cobb begins campaign
for RHA president race
By BARBARA LINN
Barry Cobb, a junior political
science and administration of justice
major from Merry Hill, has
announced his candidacy for Resi
dence Hall Association president.
Cobb said he wants to see RHA
balance its representative function on
big campus issues with its involve
ment in residence hall government.
"I think RHA has done a good job
representing students living in dorms
on issues such Old East and Old West
and guaranteed sophomore housing,"
Cobb said. "But we need to get back
to more involvement with day-to-day
life in the residence halls. I think we
can do both effectively."
Cobb said he wants to reorganize
and increase the role of the RHA
"The programming board once
existed, but it was done away with

focusing on all-campus events," he
said. "The board would be made up

working men in their late 40s or early
50s. But the road that led John to
his job at the Raleigh Rescue Mission
(RRM), where he escaped the cycle
of homelessness, has been a long one.
John arrived at the RRM in
downtown Raleigh two years ago
while job hunting in the area, he said.
Battling alcoholism, he decided to
seek counseling at the mission's long
term recovery program, an experi

Instead of focusing on all-campus
events, Cobb said he would like to
see the board become more involved
in area events, such as the Faculty
"There are many opportunities
available that are not used in area

jobs better by finding and dissemi

only help institute new programs in
the dormitories, but would also help

involving more students.

Carol Geer, a junior psychology
major from New York, has
announced her candidacy for re
election as president of the Carolina
Athletic Association (CAA).
If re-elected, Geer said she plans
to expand existing programs and
initiate new ones.
"I won't do everything the same

Geer said she would continue to
try to increase spirit in the Smith
Center during basketball games.
Plans include "Dunking for Dollars,"
a charity contest in which campus
organizations agree to donate $25 to
a specific charity for every dunk made
during selected games; a student dunk
contest; a spirit contest between
seating blocks; a senior block; and
distribution of pompons, Geer said.

Despite the possibility of an inves
tigation by an ad hoc faculty com
mittee, Educational Foundation and
athletic department officials said
Monday they have nothing to hide.
Moyer Smith, director of the
Educational Foundation (commonly
known as the Rams Club), said he
was excited about the investigation.
"We're just delighted that some
body's going to ask some questions,"
Smith said. "We certainly don't have
any secrets here."
The investigation will follow if a
resolution proposed at the Faculty
Council's Friday meeting is passed at
the next meeting on Feb. 5. The
resolution would create a faculty
committee that will "examine all
relevant aspects of the University's
intercollegiate athletics program, its
scope, procedures, financing and
other resources, and its relations to
private entities operating under the
aegis of the University."
This investigation would include
the Rams Club, as well as the athletic
The resolution is not an indictment
of the role the Rams Club played in
the resignation of former head
football coach Dick Crum, Smith
said. The Rams Club has been a
victim of the confusion that resulted
from Crum's resignation.
"We are a victim because of the

John Swofford, UNC athletic
director, said the two schools decided
to raise money for their scholarship
funds last February, in light of the
proposed government cutbacks in
student loans and scholarship funds.

"Carolina Fever is one of the things
I'd really like to see finished," she said.
"The group has done a lot to increase
spirit with special events, like the pre
game pep rallies in the fall. One more
year would let me make sure it
becomes more organized and more
of an established entity."
Geer said she would also like to
expand Homecoming 'SS.
"I feel that Homecoming touched
a lot more students last year than ever
before because of increased publicity,
like the balloon chains in the Pit, and
the band party afterwards," she said.

Although the mission concentrates
on its long-term program, it also
shelters transient people for limited
stays, Dixon said.
The mission's shelter operates from
6 p.m. until 6 a.m.

may stay for two weeks, while those
in the long-term program stay for a
minimum of eight weeks, Dixon said.

Rams Club paid him an initial

what the findings of the potential

athletic department would assist the
"I don't know what findings would
come about, but obviously we're very
much a part of the University and
have a role to play as much as any
other department," he said.
The proposal is not a censure of
the athletic department's role in the
Crum resignation, Baddour said.
"The recent events have focused
attention and concern on the athletic
department," he said. "If there are
people who want to clarify the role
of the athletic department, then we're
going to help them."

Geer said the experience and
familiarity with procedures and
campus officials that she gained by
serving as CAA president last year
would give her an advantage.

with transition," she said.
