Students and staff who had not

immunized or who were unable to
give proof of immunization were
asked to leave campus Feb. 9, the last
day of large-scale inoculations.
UNC officials were confident
Thursday that any danger of a
measles outbreak was minimal.
"Essentially, the quarantine has been
lifted, and students and faculty will
be allowed back on campus," Cowan
said. "My feeling is that we have
inoculated everyone in the University
community. I think we have done our
part, and there should be nothing to
Cowan said she was satisfied with
the way the inoculation process was
handled. "I am anxious to convey my

said. "They were a great help, and

because of them." ,

Heels thump Wake, '99-76
By MIKE BERARDINO
With the clock winding down Thursday
night, Wake Forest had the ball and was
holding for the last shot. But it wasn't the
big upset the Deacons were after, just a
little old-fashioned embarrassment
In running out the game's final 36
seconds, Wake successfully kept eighth
ranked North Carolina from smashing the
100-point mark for the seventh time this
season. But the strange strategy couldn't
diminish UNC's satisfaction over a remar
kably easy 99-76 win before 19,435 in the
Steve Bucknall came off the bench to
score a team-high 21 points and Rick Fox,
emerging from a recent funk, added 17
points to lead a typically balanced Tar Heel
"I didn't expect it to be that way," UNC
coach Dean Smith said. "I thought it would
be much closer. Defensively, we bothered
most of their shots. Our guard play was
adequate; we threw the ball away too
much. But, still, it was just an excellent
win. We played awfully well."
UNC, winning for the 10th time in 1 1
home outings this year, improved to 21
5 overall and 7-3 in the Atlantic Coast
Conference. Wake Forest dropped to 11
11 and 2-8.
Just as they did three weeks ago in
Greensboro, the Tar Heels simply
crammed the ball inside all night against
the overmatched Deacon front line. UNC
shot 67 percent from the field, including
7-of-12 from three-point range, while
holding the Deacons to a paltry 36.8 floor
On defense, the Tar Heels harried the
visitors' out of their regular offense and
into 23 turnovers. Wake did outrebound
UNC, 38-31, but 24 of those boards came
on the offensive end, usually in the form
of frantic follow attempts.
Wake star Sam Ivy, who burned UNC
for 24 points in an 88-74 loss Jan. 25, was
held to four points on 2-of-7 shooting
Thursday. The 6-foot-7 junior was plagued
by early foul trouble and played just 1 1

"' Students braved frigid temperatures and
threatening skies in the Pit yesterday to
watch the final candidates' forum of the
election season. v -
Candidates for Carolina Athletic Asso
ciation (CAA) president, Residence Hall
Association (RHA) president and The
Daily Tar Heel (DTH) editor spoke to and
answered questions from a group that
fluctuated from about 50 to 75 people.
Lisa Frye, Suzie Saldi and Robert
D'Arruda, the candidates for CAA pres
ident, addressed the issue of having the
CAA president sit on the board of the
Educational Foundation, commonly
known as the Rams Club.
D'Arruda said he favored having the
president serve on the Educational Foun
dation Board. The CAA is not as aware
of some athletic issues as it should be, and
being on the Educational Foundation
would help solve this deficiency, he said.
"We need to get on the Rams Club
board; we to need take some action," he
Frye said the CAA president must be
someone whom the administration can
trust, if he or she is going to serve on the
Educational Foundation Board. "The key
to keeping that relationship and getting a
position on the board and continuing to
stress for better seating in the Dean Dome
is getting a president in there (that) the
board can trust," she said.
Saldi said she favored having a CAA
official, though not necessarily the pres
ident, sit on the Educational Foundation
Board to keep on top of the issues.
"I think somebody needs to be there to
be informed all the time," she said. "I think
if we had somebody on that board we

The four candidates for student body
president discussed textbook prices,
campus racial interaction and their goals
for the office during the final candidates'
forum in the Pit Thursday afternoon.
Rod Bell, Brien Lewis, Trey Loughran
and Kevin Sisson spoke to about 150
students under gray skies.
Bell said he differs from the other
candidates in his approach to the office.
"I'm not going to come at you with issues,"
he said. "I'm going to come at you with
; Improving communication between the
student body and its elected leaders is one
of Bell's main goals, he said. Student
leaders should change their attitudes, he
Students should not be reactionary, Bell
said, but should work to make changes
"from the ground floor" instead of waiting
for a crisis, he said.
Lewis said he would be accessible as
student body president. For instance, he
said he would hold office hours in the Pit
once a month. "If the student body
president does not hear you, he has no
right to speak for you," he said.
The most significant change he would
make as student body president would be
to establish a student assistance fund for
financial aid, Lewis said. "Government
should help you get through school, but
student government is government too,"
If 50 cents were taken from each
student's student fees, 40 in-state tuitions
could be paid, Lewis said. "Would you give
up a can of Coke to help your roommate
get through college? I can't think of a single
person on this campus who wouldn't do
something like that," he said.
Loughran said he would like to achieve
several basic goals as student body
president. "As student body president, you
have to get something done," he said.
Amending the perspective system to
reduce overlap in the classes students have
to take, giving them more time to take
the classes they need and want, is one of
his goals, Loughran said.
"We also have to ask what we can do
