Improving minority recruitment

for the UNC Board of Trustees, said
Robert Eubanks, BOT chairman.
Eubanks spoke at a meeting of the
Black Student Movement (BSM)
Wednesday night in the Upendo
Eubanks' visit came after a week
of tension between black students and
UNC administrators over the status
of the Office of Student Counseling
and the Black Cultural Center (BCC).

attitude toward blacks," a BSM
Eubanks said he came to speak
with black students at UNC because

progress on minority concerns at
Attracting minorities to UNC is a
problem because the University is
missing out on high quality students.
"We're not getting the students we
need," he said.
The administration's goal should
be to help the minority student at
UNC be as successful as possible, he
said. "The University should not

Student Coongiress to face

Four campus organizations pre
sented their funding requests to the
Student Congress Finance Commit
tee Wednesday night, with the total
requests from 37 groups exceeding
available funds by about $170,000,
Bobby Ferris, finance committee
chairman, said Wednesday.
"WeVe got a real fiscal crunch on
our hands, and we need to be
conservative," Ferris said.
Requests from 37 groups totaled
$350,000, but the congress has only
$180,000 to allocate, Ferris said.
"We're between the proverbial rock
and a hard place," he said. "Some
thing will have to be squeezed."
A referendum on February's ballot
proposing a $1.25 increase in student
fees failed. If the referendum had
passed, about $50,000 would have
been added to this year's budget,

the "Fatal Attraction" bunny went

The groups must itemize their
