DURHAM One way to
accomplish the federal government's
goal of a drug-free America is to
initiate drug testing in the workplace,
said President Ronald Reagan in a
speech at Duke University Monday.
Reagan was declared an "honorary
Blue Devil" after addressing the
faculty and students of Duke on the
importance of saying "no" to drugs.
Reagan addressed a crowd of over
7,000 in Cameron Indoor Stadium as
the final speaker in the day's "Con
ference on Substance Abuse in the
Workplace: Strategies for the 1990s."
In the past "too much of our media
and too many of our cultural and
political leaders sent out the message
that using illegal drugs was okay," he
said. "Well, thank God those days are
Reagan said there are reasons to
be proud of recent anti-drug efforts,
noting that statistics on high school
seniors showed that one-third fewer
seniors said they used cocaine in 1987
than the class of 1986.
However, Reagan said, efforts

national championship in 1974.
Thompson's professional career dete
riorated after he became involved
"David Thompson was an extraor
dinary athlete but an all-too-typical
on-the-job drug user," Reagan said.
Reagan quoted Thompson as
saying, " 'You never feel like you're
going to be the one to get hooked.
Never try it. It's easy to get involved
with, and it's very hard to get out
Reagan also gave credit to his wife's
anti-drug campaign: "Nancy's doing
a great job. I'm the one getting paid
and she's working harder than I am,"
Picking up on an earlier comment
in the forum that the drug problem
couldn't be solved by just throwing
money at it, Reagan said that

By LYDIAN BERNHARDT
UNC is in danger of losing faculty
members because salaries are no
longer competitive with those offered
by universities of comparable size and
reputation, a recently released report
on the quality of the University
The report, released last Monday,
said UNC has lost significant ground
in providing fringe benefits, and it
"only clings to a good relative
position" in salaries.
Gillian Cell, dean of the College
of Arts and Sciences, agreed with the
report. She is in charge of hiring
faculty members for the college.
"The University has an incredibly
hard time recruiting young faculty to
replace retiring members, to a large
extent because our salaries are low,"
she said. "It's not only a question of
hiring new faculty (members), but
keeping the ones we have from being
lured away to other universities.
"There are a lot more faculty
positions available nationwide now
than there once were."
Generally, other universities offer
yearly salaries of $15,000 to $25,000
vying for S
question from the moderator. Ques
tions from the audience were then
addressed to each of the candidates.
One question directed at all the
candidates was whether they sup
ported funding the CGLA.
Beasley said the CGLA should be
given only subsistence funding. When
the group goes to the budget process,
congress should allocate only funds
necessary for the group to operate,
such as office supplies, telephone and
student member of the committee.
"Displacing this lot is going to be
a bad precedent for the rest of the
residents' lots," Sipe said. "I think this
is uncalled for at this time."
The committee should wait and
develop a long-range plan before
making these "nickel and dime
changes," Sipe said.
"Traditionally, these lots have been
reserved for students," he said. "I
know concessions will have to be
made, but I don't think now is the
and would make Omnibus an enter
To ensure accurate coverage,
Peters said she would hire a diverse
group of staff members to report on
"I would like to make the DTH
what students want in a newspaper,"
The biggest problem with the DTH
is that it lacks reporters who are
knowledgable about their subject
area, Peters said.
"More in-depth coverage is needed
and reporters need to know what to
look for in a story," she said.
The candidates for Residence Hall
Association (RHA) Barry Cobb,
Paula Zellmer and Jimmy Randolph
disagreed on how to institute a
council of dormitory presidents and
more than UNC does, Cell said.
"Last year, junior faculty were
being offered about $5,000 above
ours (UNC's), plus research money,
computer equipment and other pack
ages we had a hard time competing
with," she said. "We try, but not with
much success." Money for faculty
salaries is provided by the N.C.
General Assembly, which allocates
money by request of the UNC-system
Board of Governors. Because UNC
is part of the state university system,
salaries would have to be raised for
all universities in the system, not just
the Chapel Hill campus.
"We've had some very lean years
in terms of state appropriations," Cell
said. "We need some very sympa
thetic help from the state. Private
giving does a lot to help the Univer
sity, but it will take a huge endow
ment to catch up."
About half of the positions UNC
advertised last year went unfulfilled,

printing costs, he said.
Congress should not, however,
allocate funds for activities that
promote "gayness," because that is
what the student body objects to,
"It's a rational solution to an
emotional problem," he said. "It
(CGLA funding) really can be
worked out, and subsistence funding
is the way to go."
Lewis said defunding the CGLA
would be dangerous, because it would

time to make these changes. Until we
have a long-range plan, we can't be
making these concessions."
If the lot is converted, the Univer
sity may try to convert other student
lots, Sipe said.
The faculty lots that would be given
to students are unsafe because they
are poorly lighted and the roads have
no walkways, Sipe said. ,

handling summer storage.
Randolph said he would like to re
establish the Council of Dorm Pres
idents to increase communication
between the RHA president and the
residents about the day-to-day prob
lems in the residence halls.
"We need to have some contact
between the RHA president and
someone lower than the governors in
the hierarchy," Randolph said.
But Zellmer said the council would
be too big a group to get together
every other week.
"We need to keep the hierarchy the
way it is but increase communica
tion," Zellmer said. "It (the council)
