The Board of Governors (BOG)
Friday will hold its first meeting since
UNC-system President CD. Spangler's
statement last week that he made errors
in his investigation of the N.C. State
University (NCSU) basketball program.
: There has been much speculation
that Spangler's job performance will
be discussed at the meeting.
Spangler admitted that he believed
his investigation of the NCSU basket
ball program should have been dealt
with more rapidly and that the commis
sion report should have been made more
accessible to board members.
Spangler said Wednesday he had
talked to several board members since
"I've been gratified with the support
shown to me by most of the members of
the board. It is unfortunate that two or
three do not agree with the actions
taken in the investigation. I'll have to
try to meet with their expectations as
well as try to continue to meet the
expectations of the other members."
William Johnson, a board member
who has been openly critical of Span
gler, said he was pleased that Spangler

with the investigation and failed to

Anonymous testing for HIV, the virus
that causes acquired immune deficiency
syndrome (AIDS), may be discontin
ued in Chapel Hill when a new amend
ment to the state's Communicable
Diseases Act goes into effect in Febru
ary. The Commission for Health Serv
ices, an independent group appointed
by the governor and state medical soci
ety, will decide today on regulations
state Health Director Ronald Levine
proposed in response to the new law.
The law requires physicians to report
the names and addresses of AIDS car
riers to state health officials.
The proposal allows for the report
ing of test results, but between nine and
15 sites throughout the state would be
allowed to continue anonymous testing
if approved by the commission.
John Reinhold, clinical social worker
for Student Health Service (SHS), said
confidential and anonymous testing
would continue there until February.
"We don't know if Student Health
will be included as one of the anony
mous sites, so we will be deciding by
February how we will continue testing
struction would begin, but that it would
be at least a year from now. "(It will be)
when we get the money for it."
The building will cost about $25
million, said William Perreault, associ
ate dean for academic affairs in the
business school. The building will be
190,000 square feet and will occupy an
acre of land, Sanders said.

In an interview after the closed hear

and Graduate Student Attorney Gen
eral Todd Harrell presented their op

Schroeder to testify at the proceedings.
"He (Schroeder) basically admitted

the recent reassignment of former public
safety director Robert Sherman will
allow the witnesses to speak out,
'This delay will help with our wit
nesses with them being more comfort
able about their testimony," Edwards
said. "They won't feel that pressure
from Robert Sherman anymore."
Reinhold said the majority of cases
SHS received were anonymous. These
patients receive code numbers that are
used throughout the testing process in
place of names.
"We may be fortunate and be one of
the sites, but we are not counting on it
since we do such a small number of
tests compared to other sites. But we
would be able to tell students where the
sites are if they wanted this service."
Brinkley Sugg, HIV counselor for
the Orange County Health Department,
said he was not sure how the proposal
would affect testing and counseling in
The Orange County Health Depart
ment offers anonymous testing, as well
as confidential testing, at its Carrboro
and Hillsborough sites. The service is
offered at no cost to the public.
Sugg said he told people they could
have confidential testing, which opened
an official medical record with the
patient's name, social security number
and address, or anonymous testing,
which involved no medical record.

Members of the Graduate Student
Court who convicted him were also'
unaware that the terms of his probation
would bar him from teaching, McKin

does not specifically mention teaching

jobs, being evicted from their homes or
losing health insurance.
"We will continue to need anony

an anti-discrimination law that protects
everybody," Jones said.
Levine said his proposal was an ef
fort to respond to legislative mandate,
while also addressing fears of discrimi
nation. "If it is made reportable, our testing
system will collapse," Jones said.
"However, the proposed dual system is
better than no anonymous testing at
Jones said testing had declined in
states that required reporting the
patient's name and address. "People
have more trust in the system if you
don't threaten them with a club."
Jones said some physicians opposed
anonymous testing because it did not
allow for effective partner notification.
Partner notification involves the pa
tient or doctor notifying needle part

in Colorado had not been as effective as

"It (selection of Ehringhaus Field as
the site) would be very objectionable to

The business school needs the new

out of space for its students and faculty,
