Student Congress has only $28,000
left to appropriate to qualified campus

Congress will consider Wednesday
the International Association of Stu

bills to donate money: $200 to the

Donald Boulton Monday to ask for

The administration should become
involved because the group's attempts
to convince the CIA to engage in a
debate have proved fruitless, said
CIAAC member Dale McKinley.
"The onus should be on the admini

option and it should tell the CIA they
have to debate if they want to recruit.
Recruiting is a privilege, not a right."
Representatives of the CIA are on

Previously, a third of the student

the Student Union.

The selection of the Dalai Lama, the
spiritual and political leader of Tibet,
as the Nobel Peace Prize winner last
Thursday had a unique special mean
ing for one UNC student.
Migyur Dorjee Samkhar, a UNC
political science and international rela
tions graduate student originally from
Tibet, worked under the Dalai Lama in
the Tibetan government in exile for
almost five years between 1980 and
1985. Samkhar, the first Tibetan to
study at UNC, said he had talked to the
Dalai Lama several times during past
"I heard of his selection on Thursday
morning, right after the announcement.
I'm very happy, you know, but it doesn't
surprise me because this prize is a result
of his efforts to free the Tibetan people."
Samkhar was deputy secretary of the
council of religion, culture and educa
tion of the government of Dharmsala, a
Himalayan town in India where the
Tibetan government's headquarters are
located. The main purpose of the coun
cil is to preserve, promote and propa
gate Tibetan culture and religion, he
"I used to talk to the Dalai Lama not
so often, just about once a year when I
had something very important to report
"It's really a tremendous honor for
me to have met the Dalai Lama person
ally," Samkhar continued. "I used to
derive an inexplicable inspiration after
talking to him. I also used to feel much
peace in the heart."

Cast your ballot for referendums
By JOEY HILL
Today's election ballot allows stu
dents to vote on three referendums and
elect Student Congress representatives
to fill two vacancies.
Congress voted Sunday to put a ref
erendum on the ballot updating the
composition of The Daily Tar Heel
Board of Directors. This referendum
would amend the Student Constitution,
reflecting additions made to the board
in recent years.
"This referendum is necessary to
more expediently act upon the board of
director's decision to incorporate,"
Student Congress Speaker Gene Davis
said. "In order to prove that The Daily
Tar Heel is a non-profit newspaper, the
founding documents which are lo
cated in the Student Constitution
have to be congruent with the current
Daily Tar Heel bylaws."
To allow the referendum to appear
on the ballot, congress voted to sus
pend a rule stating that all referendums
must be submitted to the elections board
six days before the election. "Because
of the non-controversial status of this
referendum, it was decided that its
passage would be for the benefit of the
entire student body," Davis said.
Davis said that he encouraged stu
dents to vote for the referendum and
that he expected it to pass.

Edwards said she was pleased with
the letter and happy to have student

I'm not going to give up. I think, for the
students, they are tired of hearing about
the case. They're telling the University
it's time to make some changes."
Tony Deifell, co-president of Cam

Congress representative Jurgen
Buchenau (Dist. 3) said he expected the
referendum to pass. "I would be really
surprised if students rejected this refer
endum, because to me the referendum
makes eminent sense."
The referendum is an insurance pol
icy for both undergraduates and gradu
ates, Buchenau said.
"We have a precedent under the
teaching award fee set in the spring (of
1989), which for me presented a seri

Davis said that if Edwards' allega
tions are true, racism and sexism can
only serve as shackles on the Univer
sity. "Women and minorities have
fought so long and hard for the rights
they were denied. Oppression of this
nature alerts them that to the fact that
the battle is not yet over."
Students interviewed Monday said
they thought Edwards had a valid
complaint with the University.
Dawn Dreyer, a sophomore from
Raleigh, said the University didn't do
all that it could for women and minori
ties. "I have heard that there is a planta
tion sense about this campus. This is
one case where the University is being
forced to take notice."
ciple," Bibbs said. "The bill has too
many loopholes. The constitution, being
a legal document, specifies a difference
between professional and graduate
students." The referendum does not
make this distinction. "If that clause
were included (making that distinc
tion), I would support it."
