' - UNC's Student Congress voted Wednesday to place six referendums, including the two fee increases, on the ballot for the Feb. 21 campus wide elections. The first proposal, introduced by Student Body President Kevin Mar tin, calls for the establishment of four undergraduate teaching awards to be given to instructors, including teach ing assistants and non-tenure track professors, who have demonstrated excellence in teaching undergradu ates. Students would select the award's recipients. 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 receive a $5,000 grant, with all surplus funds going toward plaques and publicity to recognize the recipients. I think it's a good idea to place D'Arruda to run for CAA president By JAMES BURROUGHS Staff Writer Bob D'Arruda, a junior geo graphy major from Fayetteville, has announced his candidacy for president of the Carolina Athletic Association (CAA). 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 one game. "I feel that students are not happy with this new system, and I think something has to be done," he said. ' D'Arruda said he would have . CAA officials distribute the tickets, not members of the bus iness and law schools, and that .students would be given at least I two gates for entry to the Smith : Center. D'Arruda said he would estab lish a "CAA Hotline" so students could call to get all UNC sports scores from the previous day and receive schedules for the following day, he said. D'Arruda also said Campos government to distribute student parking permits By WILL SPEARS Staff Writer 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 Wednesday. 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 maintenance costs. "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 f. f. Bob D'Arruda Elections 89 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 happen." 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. II Mill 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 said. 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 election. The student body president must 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 Student Congress. Congress also voted to place a referendum on the ballot proposing a redistribution of summer student activities fees so that the Carolina Union would receive about 50 percent of the revenue for summer programming. 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 appear on the ballot. Officials By JUSTIN McGUIRE Assistant University Editor University administrators said Wednesday that it is too early to determine if a student government proposal suggesting the elimination of the $100 mandatory meal plan is feasible. A student government ad hoc committee submitted a five-point proposal to Chancellor Paul Hardin Wednesday. One of the recommen dations was a consolidation of the Marriott Corp. contract with the athletic event concessions contract held by Ogden Food Services. "The primary advantage to this recommendation is that consolida tion of the two contracts will provide a food service company holding the contract with a larger revenue base on which to operate," the proposal stated. "The average person thinks it's OK for students to decide the student parking issues. There's no reason to believe it won't be handled responsibly here." Neil Riemann, Student Congress speaker T "I don't know if they realize that it's going to be a very difficult process," he said. "I will give them all the help I can." Heel-fire scorches Beacons By MIKE BERARDINO Senior Writer GREENSBORO How hot was North Carolina Wednesday night? Well, as Eugene Jerome might say, the Tar Heels were hot, hot, Africa hot. J.R. Reid scored a season-high 24 points and Steve Bucknall added 18, including four three point shots, as seventh-ranked North Carolina whipped Wake Forest 88-74 Wednesday night at the Greensboro Coliseum. "Not too many teams in the country could have beaten North Carolina tonight," said Wake Forest head coach Bob Staak, who watched in disbelief as the visitors went 36-of-49 from the field, blistering the nets at an amazing 73.5-percent clip. The win, which upped UNC's record to 17-3 overall, 4-1 in the ACC, completed the Tar Heel's three-game sweep of their Big Four rivals in the past week. All three wins have come with out the services of senior guard Jeff Lebo, whose sprained left ankle is still sore. v Wake Forest, which was com ing off a 75-71 upset of Duke, dropped to 9-7, 2-5. "Obviously our plan was to get the ball inside, and we were able to do that," UNC coach Dean Smith said. "Of course, you have to make the shots, and we did that. We shot an unreasonably high percentage tonight, but of course many of them were on point-blank shots." Wake Forest tried everything in an effort to slow the Tar Heels down from zones, to man-toman to outright hacking but nothing worked. "The inside was wide open tonight and we did a good job getting the ball inside," said Reid, who played 27 minutes and made 10 of 13 floor attempts. "In the See WAKE page 8 study meaD pDams "On campuses that have successful food services, you have a total food service." Thomas Shetley Hardin said Wednesday that he had not had time to review the proposal so it would not be appro priate for him to comment.

Charles Antle, associate vice chan cellor of business and an ex officio member of the food services advisory committee, said he thought a consol idation of the various food services on campus was necessary. Once that happens, Antle said, it is possible that the mandatory meal plan could be done away with. "This is a reasonable proposal," he said., .

The act states that if a plan establishing the allocation criteria is not passed by the end of the student body president's term in office, the current allocation criteria will be adopted. Because the students will be treated as a University department in the allocation process, they will receive no special treatment, DeVitto said. "Students are now thrown in with everybody else," he said. "All the advantages everyone gets, they will also get. All the disadvantages every one gets, they will get, as well."
