A revision to the School of Edu

The Board of Trustees parking
proposals only solve short-term
problems, and the problems will
increase unless the University plans
for the long-term, students and
faculty members said Monday.
By increasing parking permit
prices, the Board of Trustees is not
solving UNC's parking problems,
said Brian Sipe, a student member
of the parking committee.
"The Board of Trustees needs to
formulate a long-term goal concern
ing the parking situation," Sipe said.

Reactions from sighs to smiles to
shrieks of joy filled the Winston
Residence Hall lounge Monday night
as hopeful residents listened for their
names to be called in the lottery

"I'm so happy," sophomore Yas
min Ahmed said. "We almost had
; heart failure because we were the last
; names drawn."
Other successful applicants, like
freshmen Lorie Steinhagen. and
; Wendy Martin, were relieved.
"Now we don't have to worry
anymore," Steinhager said. "Now we
don't have to live in James."
About 50 people gathered in the
lounge and watched HRC Area
Director Ann Stevens pull names
from a lottery cage.
Some participants said the lottery
process is unfair.
"I don't think it's fair," sophomore

Although the faculty questioned
some of the points they felt were left
out of the proposal, they were
generally in favor of it, said Gene
Watson, education professor.
"I felt the response (concerning the
report) from most of the faculty was
positive," Watson said. "The ques

"We just don't know how it's going
to turn out," Collin Rustin, associate
director of University housing, said
Monday. "Well find out."
Morrison and Ehringhaus Resi
dence Halls on South Campus may
close out residents, Rustin said. But
those students on the waiting list
requesting a high-rise residence hall
will get an assignment much faster
than someone waiting for a space on
North Campus, he said.
The main problem the lottery
presents for students is the possibility
of rejection, Rustin said.
"Housing is one of the first places
where students receive a 'no' answer
when they get here," Rustin said.
Rustin said some students feel the
need to blame the housing depart
ment. "They think a game is being
played," he said.
Students need to be informed
about the lottery system, Rustin said.

it requires time and flexibility,"

One of the questions the faculty
asked was why the education pro
gram at UNC-Charlotte sponsored
by the UNC-CH School of Education
was not included in the proposal.
Although the program is not
funded directly by the school, faculty
members were concerned because
UNC-CH faculty members teach and
serve on doctoral committees in the

Arnold Gold, a 21 -year veteran
of the Chapel Hill Police Depart

The forum, sponsored by Racial

first of a series of forums planned to
address campus racial problems.
Participants discussed the nature of

within the Greek systems.
Panelists revealed that the pur

University usually counts the total

"The best way to be accountable
is to count all the students enrolled
in the school," Brantley said.
Another problem discussed by
faculty members was the proposed
enrollment decreases. The total
enrollment in fall 1986 was 475, and
was assistant chief for three years.
After Stone retired, Gold said he
was able to get valuable experience
as the leader of the department.
"It's been a good year and I'm
looking forward to doing it on a
permanent basis," he said.
Gold said he did not plan any
changes in the department. "I don't

Several faculty members expressed
concern that these enrollment
