weaknesses that we will have to keep

About 1 ,000 UNC students had not
been vaccinated for measles by 4 p.m.
on Thursday, the last day of mass
measles vaccinations on campus,
according to Elaine Thomas, Orange
County immunity consultant.
Professors were given class rolls
Thursday with the names of students
who had not been inoculated and
could not be admitted to class.
Professors said most of the students
who had not been vaccinated did not
come to class. "No, 1 didn't have to
remove anybody from my classes,"
said Arthur Benavie, a professor of
economics. "About a half a dozen
people were absent and they were the
ones on the list."
Edward Johnson, professor of
psychology, said4 "I only had to
remove one person from my class
today (Thursday), but tomorrow
(Friday) I will have to remove about
five if they don't receive their

continue to conduct a large-scale
immunization effort, the Student
Health Service will continue to
immunize students, said Dr. Judith
Cowan, SHS director.
Students who cannot show proof
of vaccination will be asked to leave
University housing by 5 p.m. today.
Housing department officials said
Thursday that the number of students
asked to leave should be low. "As of

In avenging an 84-81 defeat in
Chapel Hill three weeks ago, N.C.
State improved to 15-4 overall and
a league-leading 6-2 in the ACC. The
Tar Heels meanwhile lost their second
straight to drop to 18-5 and 5-3.
"During warm-ups we couldn't
wait for the clock to tick down,"
Brown said. "When we played them
over there, Brian Howard was the
only one who had a good game. We
were determined to all do it tonight."
Just as in the loss to Clemson eight
days ago, UNC lost the battle of the
boards by a wide margin 40-27.

Johnson, Ehringhaus area director.
Melissa Finley, Hinton James area
director, said very few on-campus
residents have not been inoculated.
"Everybody's in the process of clear
ing themselves. Only about 100
people in the residence halls alto
gether have not been vaccinated."
Students who cannot be -immunized
because of pregnancy, fever,
allergy to eggs or religious reasons
will not be allowed to attend class
unless they can show immunity.
The only option for these students
is to take a measles titer, a test for
measles antibodies, which costs $36
at the SHS laboratory. The results
usually take about five days, Cowan
Officials seemed pleased with the
way the process was handled by the
three agencies: the state health
department, the Orange County
Health Department, and UNC's
Student Health Service. "Since last
Friday when we had our first initial
meeting with all the departments,
everything has gone well," Thomas
said. "The volunteers and the staff
personnel that the University and the
county have provided have been
outstanding in their efforts."

volunteers were members of Alpha

to dominate UNC's trees.

"They called on APO last week, and
we looked through student records
and figured out which, students

"The housing department has been
a great help in getting some of the

On Monday, 9,956 students needed
to be vaccinated, and about 2,500
students were vaccinated each day.
The state took special precautions
in dealing with the virus because it
is highly contagious, Thomas said.
"There have been cases in other states

Candidates discuss academic issues
By JENNY CLONINGER
Assistant University Editor
and JENNIFER WING
Candidates for student body pres
ident and editor of The Daily Tar

Thursday sponsored by the Associ
ation of International Students
Rod Bell, Trey Loughran, Kevin
Sisson and Brien Lewis were the
student body presidential candidates
present at the forum.
The candidates addressed the issue
of academics at UNC, including the
perspective system, teaching assis
tants (TAs) and faculty sabbaticals
Bell, a junior from Miami who filed
for candidacy Thursday, said more

respected teachers to teach classes at

He suggested more core classes in
high-demand areas and larger class
rooms for classes that large numbers
of students want to take.
Sisson, a junior from Deer Park,
N.Y., said hiring more faculty
members would allow the University
to open more sections of classes.
Additional faculty would lighten
professors' course loads as well,
giving them more time for research
and publication, he said.
TA salaries should also be
increased, Sisson said.
"Being a TA is a full-time job, and
we need to get the TAs salaries that
are equal to the jobs they are doing."
Lewis, a junior from Toronto, said
establishing an academic minor
program could be a popular alterna
tive to upper-level perspective
requirements. General College per
spectives are important, he said, but
the system needs refinement.
"I don't think just hiring more
faculty is the answer," Lewis said.
Instead, a way to allow faculty more
time for research is to establish a
sabbatical program, he said.
An association of TAs coordinated
by student government could work
as a lobbying body for increased
salaries and more recognition of TA
needs, he said.
Bell said he would try to establish
a more cooperative atmosphere
between different groups on campus.

The student body president should

"If the student body president
doesn't understand what your con
cerns are, how can he represent you?"
Sharon Kebschull, the only candi
date for DTH editor, said the DTH
has more money than it needs to
operate, and she will try to return
some of the funding it receives from
student fees to Student Congress.
"We will try to give some of our
money back," she said.
Omnibus, the DTH's weekly sup
plement, will need a strong editor to
keep it alive, Kebschull said.
