The debate included three pro posed amendments to the group's budget, as well as a discussion of the results of a referendum that asked students whether they wanted their student activity fees used to fund the CGLA. The CGLA originally requested $2,474 during hearings before the Student Congress Finance Commit tee.

These areas of North Campus would be affected by the move, he said. "Everyone in the University sees a need to continue Circus Room services, but that's the challenge," Kuncl said Sunday. "How do we meet all of our needs? I don't think we have . all the answers yet." The student representatives and Kuncl discussed several possibilities for relocating the Circus Room, Randolph said. history professor and faculty secretary. In an interview after the meeting, Gooder said he did not have a specific agenda he wanted to accomplish in his new job. "You don't go into this job with a shopping list of things," he said. "One would hope that in discussions with the chancellor-elect we will evolve some beneficial changes." But Gooder did mention one problem he said he hoped to see overcome. "As we have grown in size, we are becoming essentially more than one faculty," he said. "We have become Budget facts that the congress allocate $1,655 to the group. In February's campus election, 58 percent of the students who voted said they disapproved of funding the group. David McNeill (Dist. 19), one of the congress members who helped place the referendum on the ballot, proposed an amendment allocating no money to the group. The motion failed four votes to 14, but not without emotional debate.

But space and money shortages could prevent this, he said. Another option was to locate the convenience store in Cobb Residence Hall, Randolph said. But that loca tion could be less accessible and might cause security problems for residents, he said. The group also discussed con structing an addition to the Mono gram Building, which houses both the admissions office and Circus Room.

And one would hope that, for exam ple, with the opening of the new faculty club, we might get much more cross-fertilization between the arts and the humanities and the sciences and the professional schools. That's something I personally would love to see happen." The faculty club will be part of the new alumni center, Pfaff said. It will be a place where faculty from throughout the University can gather and will probably include some kind of dining hall.

McNeill passed out copies of Lambda, the CGLA newsletter, with certain passages highlighted, to show that more than two-thirds of the letter is "filled with political overtones." The treasury laws forbid the con gress to fund groups that are political. Earlier in the budget process, congress voted not to fund the Society for the Ethical Treatment of Animals because it deemed the group politcal, and McNeill said they should not fund the CGLA to be consistent.

Another possibility was to tempo rarily place additional admissions office staff members in available space in Cobb Residence Hall. This idea could cause problems later, Randolph said.

The resolutions were adopted without dissent. One resolution said an institutional review such as the recent management audit should always be part of any chancellor search.

Student Body President Kevin Martin suggested a one-time addition of a $1705 category to the Executive Branch budget that will fund the Campus Y's summer programs.

Amidst the booths from the Down town Chapel Hill Association, the Neighborhoods Against Pittsboro Street Extension and the Coalition for Alternatives to Shearon Harris, adults and children alike ate cotton candy and marveled at the arts and crafts that decorated both sides of the street. The row of booths stretched from the intersection of Franklin and Columbia streets to the parking lot of the Morehead Planetarium. Spon sored by the Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation Department, Apple Chill gives local groups an opportunity to sell their crafts or their causes to the thousands of residents who attend the fair. "I look forward to Apple Chill every year," said Larissa Jones, a junior from Taylorsville and three year veteran of Apple Chill. "The weather is guaranteed to be beautiful and the people are guaranteed to be happy." Aside from a few small children who had lost their parents, most fairgoers seemed to be enjoying to the soul.

The Campus Y will receive the one time allocation with the provision that a referendum, approved by the Rules and Judiciary Committee, be themselves.

The Apple Chill Coggers, Dance makers of Chapel Hill and the Durham Dolls Baton and Pom Pom Corps were among the dozen groups that performed throughout the day.

Besides the shrimp cocktail, hungry fairgoers had no problem satisfying their taste buds. Egg rolls, teriyaki, hot dogs, snow cones, home baked cookies and cakes, lemonade and popcorn were in abundance. The variety of political causes presented at Apple Chill rivaled the variety of food. Orange County Board of Commissioners candidates Moses Carey, Don Wilhoit and Ted Latta all campaigned from their booths. Several peace organizations, including the N.C.
