UimowDCoa By JASON KELLY Staff Writer At least one type or-unofficial Springfest T-shirt is being sold on campus, and while selling the shirts is not illegal, it may be a violation of the Code of Student Conduct. Henderson Residence College (HRQ, which sponsors Springfest, does not have a copyright to the name Springfest, so it has no legal way of stopping sales of any unofficial shirts. But the Code of Student Conduct makes "the unauthorized use of the name of the University or the names of members or organizations in the University community" a punishable violation. GoDleagyes call Martin's, term 'successful,1 effective' By NANCY WYKLE Staff Writer Student Body President Kevin Martin will clean out his office in Suite C today, ending a term that colleagues and observers called successful and effective. "I can't do a good job at something I don't enjoy," Martin said. "IVe enjoyed the last year more than IVe enjoyed any year in my life. I wouldn't have traded it for anything.

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 $ 1 ,000 of the T-shirt profits to Chapel During his year in office, Martin's accomplishments included forming the student advisory council, setting a new focus on academic issues, working with foreign teaching assis tants and establishing a 24-hour study area and the office of vice president, he said. "I'm proud of a lot of accomplish ments, but I wouldn't put any one above the others." Martin said he was most proud of the strong working ties he established with administrators.

By JESSICA LANNING Assistant City Editor The conflicting attitudes of Chapel Hill businesses are hindering Inter Faith Council (IFC) efforts to pro vide adequate facilities for the area's homeless individuals. Peggy Pollitzer, chairwoman of the IFC shelter program, said opposition from businesses had-made fund raising efforts difficult. In the IFC's major fund-raising campaign last year, individuals, corporations and foundations donated money, Pollitzer said. "We have had wide community participation," she said. However, she added that the IFC had not received all the money she felt it needed, because it did not get as many businesses to contribute as members expected. Many businesses felt since they didn't want the shelter there, they shouldn't contribute, she said.

"The state must provide much greater differential support for its research universities or at least free us from inhibiting, excessive state regulation," Hardin told the UNC chapter of the American Association of Professors in a statement he described as his "vision for the future of the University." Hardin continued, "We must also Hill Inter-Faith Council (IFC). "All I know is hearsay I haven actually seen the fake shirts," Seufert said. "I find it very upsetting, but we don't have a copyright to the Spring fest name, so I don't see how we can 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 shirts, but sales should pick up as Springfest gets closer, Seufert said. Student sources have said there are other unofficial shirts being sold coming in the future will follow that example." Donald Boulton, vice chancellor and dean of student affairs, said he agreed that as president, Martin worked well with the administration. "He's done a great job as student body president. WeVe met regularly to identify issues. He focused on what he wanted to accomplish." Martin, who described his presi dential style as "working with people, not against them," said he tried to be an active president who got things Chapel Hill's Homeless supporting." Pollitzer said the IFC contacted businesses in person and by letter requesting donations. "We're disappointed they didnt choose to contribute in a larger fashion. They had the opportunity." The IFC will pursue other financ ing options such as federal and state government money and foundation grants, but has no plans for future fund-raising campaigns, she said. A figure for how much money needs to be raised for renovations is indefinite until contractors open bids April 18.

Mary Bridgers, director of Victory Village and a board member, said the presentation was the board's way to remind the University that there were children on campus and to make students aware that Victory Village was a student organization. About 75 percent of the parents of children enrolled in Victory Village are students at the University, Bridgers said.

Attracting and keeping outstand ing faculty is one area in which the University needs either more money or more fiscal freedom, he said. "The University must provide salaries and fringe benefits that are competitive with those offered by its peer insti tutions, the nation's best universities." After the speech, Hardin said, "We need to provide increased morale, amenities and support to make people feel good about themselves."

In the past, there have been very vocal student body presidents who didn't work with the administration but worked through protest, he said. "In general, you need good working relationships. Protests are not the most effective use of time." As student body president, Martin said he learned to be an effective liaison between students and admin istrators.

The Victory Village board hopes the administration will consider returning to its policy of paying the center's rising maintenance costs, which the center has paid for the last 15 years of its 36-year existence, she said.

In response to a call for increased faculty-student interaction outside the classroom, Hardin again cited the need for improved finances. The budgetary restrictions of professors make them want not to "break their backs with a labor of love," he said. "I want us to pay a lot of attention to what we can do for ourselves. Support from us to each other might encourage us to do things on a volunteer basis." The quality of a UNC undergrad The real and fake of different opinions." Ruffin Hall, a member of the student government special interests committee and the student educa tional access committee, said he enjoyed working for Martin. "One component of Kevin's lead ership style led to a smoothly run office," he said. Martin is efficient and people can talk easily with him, but he is also easygoing, Hall said.

Harris, a doctoral candidate in adult and higher education, said that parents who work or go to school needed a place where they could feel comfortable leaving their children, but that the cost of providing quality day care was tremendous.

He said the undergraduate student-faculty coun seling ratio and campus computers and technology were some areas that needed improvement.
