Albert Coates, a UNC alumnus
and long-time law professor who
founded the UNC Institute of
Government and served as its head
for more than 30 years, died Satur
day. He was 92.
Friends, colleagues and students
said Sunday that Coates left a lasting
legacy to UNC through the Institute
of Government and through his work
with student government.
"The special thing he did and the
most lasting thing is the founding of
the Institute of Government,' said
John Sanders, director of the
Coates, a native of Pleasant Grove
township in Johnston County, grad
uated from UNC in 1918. After
attending Harvard University law
school, he came back to teach at the
UNC law school in 1923.
j "He was a colorful character with
a great sense of humor and a great
sense of himself," Sanders said. "He
loved to talk and tell stories. People
remember him in that regard."

Liz Jackson, a junior biology
major from Atlanta, has
announced her candidacy for Res
idence Hall Association (RHA)
Her main goals as president
would be to increase student service
and representation through RHA,
Jackson said she would try to
increase the number of computers
in residence halls as part of an effort
to increase services for residents.
She said she would push for the
opening of the Craige Computer
Center this fall.
Jackson said she would also
work to make SAFE escort service
work better. RHA and student
government could give the service
more leadership and continuity,
"I think that's SAFE escort's
biggest problem that there's no
strong leadership and no continuity
that goes along with it from year
to year," she said.
Jackson would also work for
cable television in residence halls,
In an effort to better represent
residents in the University decision
making process, Jackson said she
would work with students to put
an RHA representative on both the
Traffic and Parking Advisory
Committee and the Building and
Grounds Advisory Committee.
The students on these committees
now are all student government

The Feb. 10 deadline for housing
applications applies to students filing
for the sophomore guarantee and for
other students who wish to enter the
lottery for on-campus housing, said
Collin Rustin, associate director of
housing in contracts and administra

housing applies only if the student
wants to stay in the same residence
hall, he said.
The first lottery, for students
applying for triple and quad room
spaces, will be on Feb. 16 at 10 a.m.
in Carr Building. This drawing is for
those students who live in a triple or
quad or who want to move to North
Campus, Rustin said.

Coates founded the Institute of
Government in 1931 and remained its
director until 1962. He retired from
teaching in 1968 and was named a
professor emeritus in 1969.
The Institute of Government is the
largest and most diversified state
funded, university-based governmen

in the country.
The institute offers courses for
government officials, including-.,
mayors, city managers, school prin

institute does publishing, research

The Institute of Government pro
gram "moved almost literally from
that single room that he and his wife
Gladys occupied to that glorious
building down on Raleigh Road,"
Jackson would also work to
increase communication with the
Black Student Movement, she said.
Many black UNC students stay on
campus all four years, she said. "I
think there needs to be open
communication," she said. "Right
now, I'm not sure there is much."
Regular meetings between BSM
and RHA presidents would help
ensure that the needs of black
residents are being met, Jackson

residence areas. Only 5 percent of
residence space, an average of eight
to 10 spaces per hall, is reserved for
area changes, Rustin said. More than
half of all hall space goes to returning
residents, he said.
Also on Feb. 17, the Housing
Contracts Office will receive a list of
all students who submitted a contract
for the sophomore guarantee, he said.
The housing department will notify
all area directors on Feb. 20 of those
students who have qualified for a
space in one of the preliminary
drawings, he said. Students successful
in the lottery will be assigned a room
by the area director, and unsuccessful
students will be placed into one of
three categories, according to their
choices made on the submission card
of their contract, he said.

Suzie Saldi, a junior political
science and Spanish major from
Philadelphia, has announced her
candidacy for president of the Caro
lina Athletic Association (CAA).
Ticket distribution is an important
issue facing the CAA, Saldi said. The
first-come, first-served method of.
distribution should be used for the
best seats, she said, but a random
process should also be used to ensure
good seats for students who cannot
camp out for tickets.
"I think (distribution) has gone
from totally random to totally first
come, first-served," she said. "We
need to find a balance so a lot of
people arent left out."
The CAA should work with The
Daily Tar Heel to better publicize
ticket distribution times and the
availability of surplus tickets, she
said. Saldi said she has talked with
Educational Foundation (Rams
Club) officials in hopes of establishing
more complete sections for student
seating in the Smith Center. Bleachers
should be installed in the center
before next semester, she said.

Students unsuccessful in the lottery
can choose to place their name in the
general hall drawing, to enter the
waiting list drawing or to withdraw
their contract and claim their deposit,
The general hall drawing will be
held on Feb. 21 at 5 p.m. in the Great
Hall of the Student Union and will
consist of students who live on a
specific hall and desire one of the
open spaces still available after rising
sophomores have been placed, he
said. Rising juniors and seniors who
want their same room must go
through this lottery, and they will
have priority over the rising sopho
mores for that specific room, he said.

When he came back to UNC to
teach law, he realized the limits of
the classroom, Sanders said. "He
sought to bring changes , to North
Carolina beyond the traditional law
classroom," Sanders said.
After a few other attempts, Coates
hit upon the Institute of Government,
Sanders said. The institute was
initially privately run, but became
part of the University in 1942 by a
vote of the Board of Trustees. ,
Coates also had a great interest in
UNC's student government. In 1986,
he wrote "The Story of Student
Government in the University of
North Carolina at Chapel Hill" with
his wife Gladys Hall Coates.
