' - UNC's Student Congress voted
Wednesday to place six referendums,
including the two fee increases, on
the ballot for the Feb. 21 campus
The first proposal, introduced by
Student Body President Kevin Mar

undergraduate teaching awards to be

professors, who have demonstrated
excellence in teaching undergradu

Student fees would be raised 75
cents per semester and 25 cents per
summer session to generate an annual
budget of more than $21,000 for the
awards. Each award recipient would

funds going toward plaques and
publicity to recognize the recipients.

D'Arruda to run
for CAA president

Bob D'Arruda, a junior geo
graphy major from Fayetteville,
has announced his candidacy for
president of the Carolina Athletic
The main issue facing the CAA
is the distribution of student
tickets for basketball games in the
Smith Center, D'Arruda said. He
said he would constantly monitor
the athletic department's promise
to investigate installing bleachers
for student seating.
"I'm going to pursue it in every
open avenue I can," he said.
"Either well increase lower level
(student) seats or install bleachers.
This idea will not be forgotten."
The number of distribution days
for student basketball tickets
should be cut from 10 to three or
four, he said, so students could
receive tickets for more than one
game at a time. A method of
distribution should be established
so that students do not have to
stand in line twice for tickets to

happy with this new system, and

Campos government to distribute student parking permits
By WILL SPEARS
Student government will distribute
all student parking permits according
to its own criteria beginning with the
fall 1989 semester, administrators and
student government members said
The Traffic and Parking Advisory
Committee (TP AC) and the chancel
lor's ad hoc committee on parking
recommended to Chancellor Paul
Hardin that student government be
allowed to distribute the permits, said
John DeVitto, director of transpor
tation and parking services.
The students will be treated as one
of the University's departments and
Will be allotted a fixed number of
permits, DeVitto said. Student
government will then award the
permits as they see fit, he said.
Reality is the leading cause of stress among those
fee increases on spring ballot
an emphasis on undergraduate teach
ing," Martin said. "(The award's) only
point of focus will be on undergrad
uate teaching, and only students will
be part of the selection process."
If students approve the fee increase
to fund the awards and the UNC
Board of Trustees (BOT) gives' its
approval, the awards and fee
increases will become effective with
the 1989-90 academic year.
Students will also vote on a fee
increase to fund the proposed Student
Recreation Center, an athletic com
plex with weight training, aerobics
and counseling facilities.
Fees would be raised by $13 per
semester and $4.35 per summer
session to finance the center.
Carol Geer, president of the Carol
ina Athletic Association (CAA), said
at the meeting that student funding
is probably required for construction,
but may not be necessary to cover
"By state law, the University can't
build a facility like this," she said.
"There is a good chance that if the
students build the building, that the
state will pick up the tab for the
maintainance of it."
If students and the BOT approve
the fee increases, they would be
he wants better weight facilities on
campus but will pursue other
means of funding besides a student
fee increase. He also said he would
add a three-point shootout to next
year's CAA Dunk Contest.
"I want the CAA to appear
more as a student outlet," he said.
"It's our voice in athletic issues,
and we want to keep it that way."
D'Arruda covered UNC non
revenue sports for two years as a
member of The Daily Tar Heel
sports staff. This year, he served
as a member of the Carolina
Union Sports and Recreation
Committee before it was dissolved.
He is a former member of Carolina
Fever, a division of the CAA.
Roger Lotchin, chairman of the
TPAC, said he feared that student
government may not realize the
importance of parking spaces to
students who live off campus and
have to commute.
"This may mean that some com
muters don't get spaces," he said. "We
need to make sure that this doesn't
Neil Riemann, speaker of Student
Congress, said students who live off
campus are well represented in
Student Congress and will not be
denied the spaces they need.
"The average person thinks it's OK
for students to decide the student
parking issues," Riemann said.
"There's no reason to believe it won't
be handled responsibly here."
The allocation process is going to
be a very difficult one, DeVitto said.
implemented at the discretion of the
Student Recreation Center Board of
Directors, which would be chaired by
the CAA president.
"Right now, the projection (for the
center's completion) is three years,
and ideally no students will have to
pay before the doors are open," Geer
Students will also vote on a third
referendum to create a student body
vice president position. The vice
president would exercise powers at
the direction of the student body
president and with the approval of
the Student Congress, and would
succeed the president if that person
were forced to leave office.
If the proposal is passed by ref
erendum, the Student Code will be
amended to provide for a separate
vice president position, and a vice
president will be selected after the

serve on many boards and commit
tees and also has a responsibility to
appoint students to chancellor's
committees, Martin, said. A vice
president would be able to represent
the president at board meetings and
oversee all appointments to chancel
lor's committees, he said.
A student search committee would
recommend to the student body
president the name of one to three
qualified applicants, and the presi
dent's selection would require a two
thirds vote of approval from the

referendum on the ballot proposing
a redistribution of summer student
activities fees so that the Carolina
Union would receive about 50 percent

Students will also vote on referen
dums that would allow the student
body president to appoint the student
attorney general for the following
year prior to spring elections and to
enable the congress to set the date
of the annual budget process.
Another referendum, which would
allow Student Congress candidates to
run for their future district of resi
dence provided they have evidence of
their new status, failed to pass by a
two-thirds majority and will not
