Observers of Wednesday night's
debate between student supporters
of Michael Dukakis and George
Bush didn't walk away complain
ing that they didn't learn anything
about the candidates.
' Some even said the students did
a better job of addressing the issues
than the actual candidates had in
their televised debates.
About 150 people attended the
debate in Gerrard Hall, which
featured UNC supporters of
Dukakis and Bush supporters
from N.C. State. Student govern
ment sponsored the event.
Audience members and pane
lists said both sides were familiar
with the candidates' stands and
stuck to the issues, and that it was
hard to determine a winner.
"I think both sides were well
prepared," said Walter Bennett, a
UNC law professor who served as
one of the event's moderators. "I

A permanent Black Cultural Cen
ter should be large enough to house
essential programs, students said at
a forum Wednesday night at the
Black Cultural Center.
The forum's focus was to finalize
the request for space for a new Black
Cultural Center (BCC) and get
students involved in plans for the new
center. About 40 students attended
"The main purpose of the meeting
was to get all the students involved
in the planning of the center so that
when it is finished, they will be happy
with it and feel like they contributed
to it," said Margo Crawford, director
of the Black Cultural Center. "It was
refreshing to see so many students out
The current BCC, which opened
July 1 , is an interim space that is too
small for programs involving more
than 50 people, Crawford said. The
center's area is about 400 square feet.
"We have definitely outgrown this
space," she said. "If we have to wait
until 1992 before we get a new
building, we will be out in the hall."
The BCC's Facilities Planning
Committee will prepare a detailed
request for space in the new center
and will submit it to UNC's Board
of Trustees on Dec. 9.
Students at the forum had diffi
culty deciding how much space to
designate for each room. They will

Despite a $1.2 million increase in
sales from the summer of 1986 to May
1988, Marriott has not made a profit
at UNC since it took charge of the
University's dining halls in 1986,
Marriott director Bill Dux said
And UNC officials are considering
closing the Pit Stop because some say
the snack bar provides too much
competition for the dining halls,
Thomas Shetley, UNC director of
auxiliary services, said Tuesday.
Dux said the end of fiscal year 1990
would be the earliest time that
Marriott could show a profit. The
company operates on a fiscal year,
from July 1 of one year to June 30
pf the next.
An insufficient base of operations
and the limited number of days the
service can operate because of the
school calendar have contributed to
Marriott's financial problems, he
Other factors that prevent Marriott
from earning a profit are the insuf
ficient seating space in Lenoir and
Chase halls and the cost of maintain
ing facilities, especially during
summer, when sales are low. Com
petition with local caterers, who do
not have to give the University a
commission on their sales as Marriott
does, also causes problems, Dux said.
One way to increase revenue, he
said, would be to increase the number
of facilities Marriott operates on
release the money to fund the shuttle,
"Since they (the other parties) are
giving us what we agreed to, we will
reimburse them," Martin said.
Neil Riemann, speaker of Student
Congress, said he wasn sure about
the specific details of the shuttle but
that Student Congress would release
the $2,000 it had promised.
"I know that we are willing to

campus. Marriott runs Lenoir and
Chase dining halls and the three
convenience stores in South Campus
residence halls, which is about 30
percent of the campus food services,
The snack bar under construction
in the Student Union, scheduled to
open next semester under Marriott
management, is one attempt to
increase the company's base of
operations. Dux said he would also
like to run several of the UNC
Student Stores snack bars.
"We'd like to run the dining service
on campus, and we'd like to be able
to control that and market that to
everyone's benefit," Dux said.
Overhead expenses, such as
employee salaries and operational
costs, are duplicated when more than
one company runs food services on
campus, Dux said. At UNC, Marriott
and Student Stores share the food
services market, and students are
paying for those duplicated costs, he
"Everybody's running their own
little piece of food service," he said.
But Rutledge Tufts, general man
ager of the Student Stores, said
-Tuesday that having two different
competing food services "tends to
keep them honest."
Having just one food service on
campus might lead to decreased
variety and higher prices, Tufts said.
Snack bars like the Pit Stop also give

originally promised," Riemann said.
Student government intends to
fund the shuttle only for the first year.
Further funding will have to come
from another source, Martin said.
"We're only talking about student
government paying for it once," he
said. "Somebody else would have to
