the two candidates being considered
by the Board of Trustees are not from

In a special meeting of the board
last Friday, BOT chairman Robert
Eubanks presented UNC-system
President CD. Spangler with the
names of at least two candidates, the
newspaper said, including one from
New York University in Manhattan
and one from Drew University in
Madison, N.J. The candidates visited

Carrboro Chamber of Commerce
Sherri Powell, manager of small
business and marketing for the
chamber of commerce, said amateur
athletic events provide tremendous
revenue to the town. According to
a report by the chamber, visitors to
Chapel Hill in 1985 brought in more
than $59 million dollars.
"Amateur athletic events attract a
large number of those visitors,"
Powell said. Last summer's U.S.
Olympic Festival, for example, con
tributed $35 million of directly
measurable revenue to Chapel Hill.

see that Chapel Hill is home to all

The chamber is stressing the eco
nomic importance of amateur athlet

later competitions, Powell said.
In an October resolution, the
chamber recognized "the importance
of amateur athletics on the economic
well-being of the community," and
established a committee to encourage
community and business support.

According to some approxima

the business get involved in these
