The commission appointed to
investigate allegations of corruption
in the N.C. State University basket
ball program has met three times, said
CD. Spangler, UNC-system presi
dent, at a meeting Friday of the Board
of Governors ( BOG).
"We can be assured, I am certain,
that this process will move along with
dispatch," Spangler said. "This is
' what I recommended, and this is what
: we're doing now."
Samuel Poole, BOG vice chairman
'. and member of the commission, said
the committee has not found any

Iwill double," Poole said.

Smith said. "RHA could have done
a lot more if we did not have to deal

The lack of parking spaces
creates a problem for workers on

forum in Cobb Residence Hall
Trey Loughran, Kevin Sisson,
Brien Lewis and Rod Bell were the
candidates for student body president
who appeared at the forum. They
addressed the issue of safety on
Bell said safety measures on cam

Campus escort system is crucial," he
said. He also said that if he was
elected president, he would get about
10 people to walk across campus for
a few consecutive nights to locate the
most dangerous areas on campus.
Student government could then
examine these areas and work to
make them safer, he said.

The executive board of the Black
Student Movement (BSM)
announced Sunday that it would
endorse Brien Lewis for student body
president, Sharon Kebschull for

BSM officials decided not to
endorse a candidate for Residence

falsely believe they would be safe..
Loughran said that not putting
lights in the Arboretum because of
fear of shadows is a "cop-out." He
said the problem could be solved by
placing flood lights in the trees so the
shadows would be eliminated.
He also said lights should be
mandatory in the Arboretum regard
less of dark shadows because inci
dents have occurred along the side
walk beside the Arboretum.
Sisson said areas around South
Campus, like the Morrison path and
areas around Ehringhaus, need better
lighting. "Lighting would be a great
improvement," he said.
He also said the SAFE Escort
service should serve the South Cam
pus area more efficiently. Expanding
these types of patrols is the key to
safety on campus, he said.

platform that he would like to see

Jackson said residence hall govern

the biggest problem is finding good
people and getting good people for
those jobs so that the individual area
governments are stronger," she said.
Both Smith and Jackson said they
would monitor the effects of guaran-
the University add more emergency
telephones around campus.
Lewis said he would make several
changes to improve safety on campus.
He said residence halls should have
a safety service, such as a Granville
Towers escort system or a South
Campus escort. Also, the present
SAFE Escort system should be
improved, he said.
"People don't know the people
coming to get them," he said. SAFE
should issue a flier showing the faces
of the escorts with some information
about them, he said.
The University should establish
more emergency phones around
campus, he said. All students should
know the SAFE Escort phone
number, he said.
Lisa Frye, Suzie Saldi and Robert
D'Arruda, the candidates for CAA
president, faced questions about the
ticket distribution process and stu
dent seating in the Smith Center.
.D'Arruda said the current ticket
distribution method should be altered
by reducing the number of distribu
tion dates and eliminating ticket
mitment to inclusion rather than
exclusion for the homecoming activ
ities," he said.
Tonya Blanks, BSM vice president,
said, "She had solid, practical ideas."

efforts to include black students in
its activities, especially homecoming,

Although Sharon Kebschull is
running unopposed for DTH editor,

Blanks said, "She's interested in
improving the way that minorities are
portrayed in the newspaper."

Sunday. He also said the CAA should
post signs at the Smith Center to
inform students of the most recent
distribution time for students with
numbers marking their places in line
to line up for tickets.
Frye said the CAA has cut down
on ticket distribution dates as much
as it can. Completely random distri
bution was inefficient, she said,
because many students who got better
seats often did not come to the games.
"Fifty percent of the students who got
in block seating did not even attend
the games," she said.
Frye said she wants to improve
relations with the administration, but
the administration should listen to
student demands. "We need to be
completely organized to have a
boycott (of a basketball game)," she
said. "We have to be ready to react."
Saldi said she wants a compromise
between the number and the random
