Under the Code, making and
selling the fake shirts, which are white
with "UNC Springfest" written on
them, may be a violation.
The "UNC Springfest 9" logo is
in small maroon lettering on the
fronts of the shirts, and in maroon
and gray on the backs.
Virginia Mewborne, the under
graduate student attorney general,
said she had not heard of the shirts.
Kurt Seufert, chairman of the
' Springfest committee, said that much
of the money raised from the sale of
the T-shirts would go to cover the
costs of Springfest, but that the
committee also wants to donate

accomplishments included forming

do anything about it.
"We can't make the donation if we
can't cover our own expenses, so the
makers of the fake T-shirts are
actually taking away from charities."
Springfest T-shirts have not sold
as well this year because of the
competition from the unofficial
