The search for a new Smith Center
director is under way and the selec

applicants. Associate Athletic Direc

Steve Camp, former Smith Center
director, resigned in March to
become director of the Charlotte
Baddour said the position was
nationally advertised immediately
following Camp's resignation.
"We began advertising the job early
in March," he said, "and it remained
open through the end of March."
The selection committee has
received more than 80 applications
from people around the United
States, Baddour said.
The new director will be selected
by a committee made up of repre

"The selection committee consists
of people not only from the athletic
department but also from other areas
of the University," he said.
Baddour said at least five candi
dates will be interviewed.
"Right now, I project that the
number of applicants will be nar
rowed down to five," he said. "How
ever, we are not limiting ourselves to
bringing in only five candidates."
Baddour said he considered all
applicants brought in for interviews
as prime candidates to fill the

Students say decrease in use of drug unlikely
By BETHANY LITTON
Although the death of a UNC
senior has been linked to the possible
use of hallucinogenic mushrooms,
students interviewed Tuesday said it
is unlikely that people will become
more cautious about using the drug.
In a memorial service held Thurs
day for David Mantey, who fell to
his death from Granville Towers on
March 26, his girlfriend said the use
of mushrooms may have led to his
Since Mantey's fatal fall, there has
been much speculation about the
cause of his death. But Jackie
Moore's statements in her boyfriend's
eulogy confirmed for many of Man
tey's friends that his death was drug
related. Moore mentioned drug use as a
possible cause of Mantey's death to
warn people who use mushrooms
about possible negative effects, said
Mantey's former roommate, Norman
"Jackie said she let it out to benefit
others who might use the drug,"
Gross said. "I hope many people will
learn from Dave's experience."
Moore refused to talk to The Daily
Pastor Larry Hartsell of Holy
Trinity Lutheran Church, who led
last week's memorial service, said
Moore gave curiosity as a reason for
Mantey's alleged use of the
"He was extremely bright and very,
very curious," Hartsell said. "Sup
posedly, he had heard that halluci
nogenic mushrooms could give peo
ple a new sense of reality and new
levels of creativ ity."
Senior Chris Demas, a friend of
Mantey's since their freshman year,
spent time with him the night before
he died. Demas said he was surprised

Officials waiting for results of laboratory tests
By LYNN AINSWORTH
Drug use has not been ruled out
as a possible factor in the death of
22-year-old UNC senior David Man
tey, according to officials at the
Chapel Hill Medical Examiner's
Mantey died March 26 after he fell
from a window in Granville Towers.
At a memorial service Thursday, his
girlfriend said the use of hallucino
genic mushrooms may have caused
Test results for cocaine were
negative, Dr. Arthur McBay, chief
toxicologist at the medical examiner's
office, said Tuesday.
Officials are waiting for the results
of other laboratory tests being done
at a specialty lab outside of Phila
delphia, he said.
Tests are being conducted for
psilocybin, the natural hallucinogen
found in psychedelic mushrooms,
The laboratory is also testing for
mescaline, a hallucinogen found in a
type of cactus called peyote.
"We have no indication at this
point that his (Mantey's) death was
drug-related," Jane Cousins, a
spokeswoman for the Chapel Hill
Police Department, said Tuesday.
"Well have to wait for the reports
from the medical examiner's office."
University officials refused to
speculate about whether Mantey was
under the influence of drugs at the
time of his death.
The use of "magic" mushrooms on
campus has risen dramatically over
the past five years, said Bill Riddick,
coordinator of substance abuse at
Student Health Service. Mushrooms
are the fourth most popular drug on
campus behind alcohol, marijuana
and cocaine, Riddick said.
"1 think it's at least two or three
times greater than it was five or six
years ago," Riddick said.
Curiosity may be one reason for

New chancellor to brims era of chaise
Editor's note: This is the first in
a three-part series examining the
University community's attitude
toward the changing leadership of
By BRIAN McCOLLUM
The naming of a new chancellor
signals the beginning of an era of
change for the U niversity, and admin
istrators and faculty members say
they are optimistic about UNC's
Many University officials have
expressed high hopes about the
leadership of Paul Hardin, a Char
lotte native and president of Drew
University. Hardin was named chan
cellor Friday by the UNC Board of
Governors and will replace Chris
topher Fordham, who is stepping
down in June.
Hardin has said he respects the
position of the University as a leading
national institution, and that any
sweeping changes would be a mistake.
However, most faculty members and
administrators agree that an atmos
phere of change is inevitable with the
arrival of a new chancellor.
"There's new leadership coming in,
and we should capitalize on it," said
Harold Wallace, vice chancellor of
university affairs. "With new leader
ship comes new expectations."
George Kennedy, faculty council
chairman, said observers should
realize that change will come as
Hardin adapts to the University, and
the University adapts to Hardin.
"He stressed the fact that he's not
coming in with an agenda for change,
and 1 respect that," Kennedy said.
"He knows he needs to have a fuller
understanding of the University's
problems. It's going to take some
Hardin is well aware of the January
management audit that warned the
University not to rest on its laurels,
Kennedy said. That report, sanc
tioned by the chancellor search
committee, outlined criteria for the
committee to use in its quest for the
"Dr. Hardin has read the report,
so he's aware of the needs listed
there," Kennedy said. "I do think he
understands the matters that are
closest to the heart of the University."
Kennedy said the most crucial
needs for faculty members include
better salaries and fringe benefits, as
well as greater funding for research
activities. Hardin's reputation as a
moneymaker will be an asset,
"One of the strengths of Dr. Hardin
is his record as a fund-raiser and his
enthusiasm for taking on that chal
lenge," Kennedy said. "The chancel
lor is the key person in the enunci
ation of goals and expectations."
William Turnier, chairman of the
faculty welfare committee, said
Hardin will have to take an aggressive
approach to obtaining additional
funds for the University. One prob
lem with faculty salaries, Turnier said,
is the relatively low amount of
funding UNC-CH receives because of
the 16-school consolidated public
university structure in North
"What's happened with salaries
here is no secret they are declining
as compared to other universities,"
Turnier said. "He (Hardin) is going
to have to be fairly assertive. One
thing hell have to look for is to make
a change in that structure."
Fresh ideas vital
"I'm very pleased that someone
from the outside is coming in," said
Speech Communications Professor
Paul Brandes. "It just makes common
Brandes said the three consecutive
"inbred" UNC chancellors since 1966
have had a negative effect on the
vitality of the University. "After 22
years, it's time to have somebody
come in from the outside," he said.
Hardin will breathe new life into
the University by gradually making
changes within the administration,
"A number of people who have
been sponsored by the 'old boys club'
that has existed in the South Building
will slowly be replaced by persons
who are more of Mr. Hardin's point
of v iew and have fresh viewpoints on
their positions," Brandes said. "He's
going to be bringing in a new team."
Though he could not speculate on
the exact nature of Hardin's priorities
once in office, Brandes said three
things should be expected for the
University in the long run: more
innovative and sophisticated curric
ula; the opening of at least one new
school and the merging of several
existing ones; and regular, detailed
outside evaluations of faculty and
However; the most important task
awaiting the new chancellor is close
interaction with the student body,
"He's got to get to know the
students better," Brandes said. "Most
of the students don't even know what
our chancellor looks like. We need
a visible leader."
Minority concerns a priority
Several administrators pointed out
the necessity of an emphasis on
various minority needs at the Uni
versity, including recruitment and
retention of black students and
faculty members. Vice Chancellor
Wallace, chairman of the Black
Faculty Caucus, said Hardin has an
