At 8:30 p.m. their car radios could
have told them that George Bush had
already taken all of North Carolina's
electoral votes. But these voters did
not want to listen to returns. They
cheered the results of their own poll
conducted by third-grader Jennifer
Waddell. Scribbled on binder paper,
that poll showed the Democratic slate
winning by a landslide.
"Whether I affect the outcome is
irrelevant to me," said Bull Manfredi,
a Chapel Hill resident who said he
was a fool for moving a couple of
years ago without telling the board.
"To me voting is the right thing to
do regardless of the outcome."

Despite these savings, the library
was still forced to shift $191,000 from

budget to cover price increases,
according to the report.
For the past two years, no money
has been available for new periodical
subscriptions except' for the' money
saved from canceling ofd subscrip

Because books are most often used
by humanities majors and periodicals
are most often used by sciences
majors, the library seems to be
shifting its expenditures from the
humanities to the sciences, Hewitt
Despite the library's recent savings,
a budget increase is essential to its
survival, he said. "We hope to
combine our periodical reviews with
an increased budget."
The budget proposal calls for an
estimated 23 percent increase the first
year, Hewitt said. The budget
includes all the libraries in the UNC
UNC-CH will find out if the
proposal is approved sometime this
summer, Hewitt said.
Hewitt said he hopes that the
budget proposal will be approved, but
the library "will continue to prepare
for the worst."
The approval of the proposal is
essential to the library's continued
recovery, Hewitt said.
"If it continues like it was last year,
a one-term effect would be disas

anything, we're not going to recover."

The walk's first priority is to raise
money for the AHA, according to
Small. If it weren't for people who
participate in fund-raising events, the
AHA would not have gotten the
money to research bypass and open
heart surgery procedures that save
thousands of lives a year, Small said.
Secondly, the walk promotes exer

it allows you to get out and walk with

A request has been made to the
Town of Chapel Hill to rezone more

part of town for use as a shopping
center and office park.
The town has scheduled a public
meeting to discuss the rezoning
request, which was made by the
owners of the land and an area

must enjoy performing before an
