the Town of Chapel Hill, the
Chapel Hill Planning Board met
with about 15 students Thursday
night at Hamilton Hall to field
questions about the board's
recently drafted Strategic Report.
Planning Board Chairman Alan
Rimer and planning staff member
Brad Torgan showed a slide
presentation outlining the report,
which evaluates the town's
strengths and weaknesses in six
key areas and proposes solutions
for existing problems.
"You're a third of the commun
ity, and that can't be discounted,"
he said. "You have a lot to do with
the way we decide things." -
The students who attended were
members of the Executive Branch,
Student Congress and the Grad
uate and Professional Student
Federation. Trey Loughran, stu
dent liaison to the Chapel Hill
Town Council, said that Torgan
had called him to set up the
meeting. Torgan requested a small

out so that only one class that didn't
use the facility would have to pay.
Geer said she would like to have
the center run by a programming
board, similiar to the one that runs
the Carolina Union. The Intramurals
Office would coordinate and super
vise the activities, she said.
Geer said she has been working
with administrators including

"I'm very encouraged," Lough

The Strategic Report is the 1988
Comprehensive Plan for Chapel
Hill, "the latest in a series of
continuing refinements of Chapel
Hill's blueprint for the future,"
according to the report's
The report summarizes six
separate informational reports on
demographics, natural environ
ment, transportation, community
facilities, housing and design
guidelines. Each topic in the report
is discussed in terms of the present
problems and proposed solutions
for that area.
After the presentation, Rimer
and Torgan opened the field for
questions and suggestions.

Ronald Reagan is primarily
responsible for the $150 billion
budget deficit, but Congress and the
Carter administration share part of
the blame, according to three econ
omists interviewed recently.
"There are a couple of core expla
nations for the budget deficit. said
Robert Reischauer, a senior fellow at
the Brookings Institution. "We cut
taxes way, way back in 1981 and
accompanied these tax cuts with
modest spending cuts, and then said
we'll do more later but the
American public was not willing to
do more later."

Native Americans are particularly
neglected in University recruiting,
Mansfield said. Although North
Carolina has the fifth largest Native
American population of any state in
the United States, the University does
not do enough to recruit Native
Americans, he said . i1Vt r ; ,
The minority recruitment brochure'
published by the University focuses
on blacks, Mansfield said. This
discourages Native Americans from
attending UNC because it indicates
that the University is not interested
in them, he said.

contingent upon further spending
cuts, Reischauer said.
"The blame for the tax cuts is 80
percent Reagan's and 20 percent
Congress," he said. "Everybody
played the game."
The serious recession in 1981 and
in 1982 also helped the deficit grow,
Reischauer said. Inflation fell from
12 percent in 1981 to 3.8 percent in
1983, a much larger drop than the
one or two point annual decrease the
administration had predicted.

After more than three years of
making headlines as a campus acti
vist, Dale McKinley will quietly exit
Chapel Hill and the UNC political
scene at the end of the semester.
McKinley, a graduate student in
political science, has finished his
course work and will soon begin work
on his dissertation.
But he does not plan to live in
Chapel Hill permanently again, he
For the first time in three years,
he will return to his home in Zim
babwe, where he was born and lived
until he graduated from high school,
and "experience what being home is
like again," he said.
Whether he intended to or not,
McKinley has been the focal point
of campus activism during the past
few years. He was active in the fight
to get UNC to divest its holdings with
companies doing business in South
Africa and has more recently been
prominent in the effort to end CIA
recruitment on campus.
He has fasted, built shanties,

to recruit them," he said.
About 60 Native Americans apply

"It could take a long time," he said.
"It looks impossible now, but it can
be solved. It would take presidential

Reagan deserves most of the blame
for the huge deficit, but Jimmy

But McKinley said he didn't plan
it that way.
"All the things IVe done here I've
done as part of a group," he said.,
There's a great number of people out
there who've done so much work and
deserve to be given credit for it."
Dale McKinley's commitment to
fighting what he sees as injustice
started during his life in Zimbabwe,
living under what amounts to an
"Personal experience is a great
motivating factor," he said. "My
upbringing in Zimbabwe . . . made
me aware of the need for concerted
action aimed at justice and equality."
McKinley was born in what was
then Southern Rhodesia in 1962. His
parents, both American citizens, went
divided into two categories, blacks
and Native Americans, Davis said.
Other minorities, such as Hispanics,
Asian Indians and Orientals are not
recognized as minorities for admis

UNC should make an effort to hire
Native Americans for faculty and
staff positions, Mansfield said. There
are no Native Americans holding
faculty or staff positions, hesaid. v v
"There's an 1 1-to-l jatio of stu

"Judging from that," there should be

"On a broader level, a system that
functions on pursuit of property and
individuality is not particularly
compatible to what is good for;
everyone," he said. "There is a duty
morally and politically to respond to
injustices you see around you.
But this personal philosophy has
manifested itself in areas other than
the protests he participated in.
As a graduate student, McKinley
has taught five political science
courses at UNC. He has tried to
challenge his students to think and
not blindly accept what they are
taught, he said.
