George Bush is counting on unified

Dole campaign officials refused to
concede defeat but admitted that his

nominee will be him, but Connecticut
is Bush country," said Katie Boyle,

Students can vote by putting
money in the collection jars in the
Pit all of this week and next Monday
and Tuesday. The winner will get to
kiss the ram in a short ceremony in
the Pit next Tuesday at 12:15 p.m.
The winner will be determined by
a point system. Change donated to
a contestant's collection jar adds
points to the total and paper money
subtracts from the total. This system
allows voters to improve their favor
ite contestant's chances by putting
coins in his or her jar and putting
bills in an opponent's jar.
The Chapel Hill Police Depart
ment will use the money to publish
safety awareness pamphlets to teach
schoolchildren how to protect them
selves in dangerous situations.

Susan Pelter, press secretary in Dole's
Senate office. "He will not stay in
until the point where it is ridiculous."
"I wouldn't be surprised if he drops
out in the near future," Black said.
Bush officials agreed. "He implied
that he will leave the race (in Friday's
speech), and I think he will," Erwin
Wilcox, field liaison for the Bush
campaign in North Carolina, said.
Dole will not do a lot of campaign

The current mascot, Ramses XIX,
has only been active since October,
so this is his first "Kiss the Ram"
contest, said Circle K member Brian
Bennett expressed his appreciation
to the campus individuals who are
participating in the contest. "It's nice
that these people are willing to do
this for a good cause," Bennett said.
Bennett also encouraged all stu

the contestant they would most like
to see kiss the ram. "This is the chance
for everyone to try to humiliate a
campus personality while also helping
out the community," he said.

Fighting ADDS discrimination
By LAURA MAYFIELD
Panic, profit and politics are the
three main factors in AIDS dis
crimination, Benjamin Shatz,
director of the AIDS Civil Rights
Project of the San Francisco
National Gay Rights Advocates,
told about 50 people at the law
Shatz, a practicing lawyer with
a Harvard law degree, emphasized
the need for qualified lawyers to
join the fight against AIDS dis
crimination. "I want to stress the
importance of day-to-day law in
the lives of those who are at risk
or are suffering from AIDS," he
Unfortunately, the law often
ignores those who are closest to
AIDS victims, Shatz said. Homo
sexual partnerships are not legally
recognized, so a partner can be
forced to leave a shared apartment
when his partner dies.
Convention is one of the most
difficult obstacles to overcome in
the battle against AIDS discrim
ination, he said.
"It is more polite to have people
die than to say words having to
do with sex. If we want to educate
people well have to do it in words
The sense of panic is apparent
in health-care givers, he said.
"The most disturbing problem is
in health care. In many places it
is impossible to find a nursing
home or a doctor who will care for
someone with AIDS," Shatz said.
He described a man who spent
several days in a hospital before he
could find someone who would
"Here was a gay man with spots
on his face who was having trouble
breathing. They put him in an
isolation ward. All he had was
asthma and acne. The kind of
horror story I present here is one
of hundreds, many of which never
reach my office."
Insurance companies, which
screen applicants for risk potential,
walk a fine line between self
protection and discrimination,
Shatz said. One company to come
under attack by his agency passed
a memo to its employees asking
them to screen for potential AIDS
victims. It asked them to deny
insurance to unmarried men hold
ing jobs not requiring physical
labor such as florists and interior
decorators, he said.
Combined totals for the event rival
the passenger count for the entire
U.S. Olympic Festival, which
spanned eight days, he said.
Chapel Hill Transit maintained all
regularly scheduled bus service dur
ing the tournament, McClellan said.
On March 17, shuttle service began
at 10:30 a.m. The last bus did not
return to the garage until 1:30 a.m.
Total service required Chapel Hill

Benjamin Shatz speaks on AIDS
Other groups are also trying to
cash in on the AIDS scare, he said.
For example, one company is
trying to market an AIDS saliva
test at Tupperware parties, he said.
Politicians can benefit most from
the AIDS scare, he said. "AIDS
is a very appealing way for pol
iticians to get noticed . . . that is
the way the AIDS crisis has been
used in this country.
"Right now we're at a crossroads
trends of compassion, denial
and blame. AIDS is a good oppor

Duke Power, he said.
"On top of the day-to-day service
demands, we had to staff four
(daytime) and seven (evening) shuttle
sites and the Smith Center, train 10
Duke Power drivers on our shuttle
routes and radio procedures and
maintain our composure during some
very trying moments," McClellan
Complaints about the shuttle
service concerned long waits for buses
and inadequate service, he said.

The conclusion drawn is that
people developing AIDS are
expendable, Shatz said.
In spite of all the obstacles facing
AIDS victims, Shatz said he is
optimistic. "The situation is

People want something done, but

On March 17, all shuttle lots were
full and shuttle service had to be
temporarily discontinued until cars
began to leave, he said.
"It's hard to accommodate every
one for a large Smith Center event,
especially when campus activities are
in full swing," McClellan said. "I
think we have learned that it is
impossible to provide adequate access
to the Smith Center without a 'mix'
of shuttles and public parking."
