After expressing its disapproval of a
Southern Bell employee letter-writing
campaign, the N.C. Utilities Commis
sion said April 4 that it would not
pursue the matter further.
Southern Bell requested employees
to write letters in favor of "Caller ID,"
a proposed phone service allowing the
customer to view the phone numbers of
incoming calls before answering the
phone. A memo with several sample
letters favoring the service was circu
lated around Southern Bell, and 412
subsequent letters were identified as
written by Southern Bell employees.
None of the letters listed the corporate
affiliation of the writer.
'The facts surrounding that cam
paign have now been adequately
brought to light ... We do not think any
useful purpose would be served through
further pursuit of this matter," the
commission said in its written response.
The Public Staff, a division of the
Utilities Commission dealing with
public opinion, does not intend to seek
additional action regarding the cam
paign, according to LuAnn Lenz, utili
ties engineer for the.Public Staff. The
Public Staff was the agency that first
brought Southern Bell's letter-writing
campaign to the commission's atten
tion in February.
Southern Bell will comply with the
commission's request that the telephone
company notify the commission in
writing of any such future solicitation,

rate and community affairs for South

The lack of cultural education caused
Native American students to be inaccu
rately stereotyped, Woods said. "How
can a person be equal when his identity
is denied every day on this campus?"
The University needs cultural diver
sity, Woods said. Cultural ignorance
on campus results from a lack of avail
able information. "How can you re
spect a man when you are ignorant of
his culture?" he said. "This cultural
genocide has to stop."
Dana Lumsden, director of the
Minority and Women's Affairs De
partment under former Student Body
President Brien Lewis, also spoke at
the rally. "UNC has never had a Native
American faculty," he said. "This is a
sound argument to get one here."
Student government has assisted CIC
in the search for qualified Native
debolt. Both Hildebolt and Mark Bibbs,
who competed against each other in the
SBP runoff, said they received nega
tive feedback from students when they
decided to restrict the runoff.
"Take it (the decision to restrict a
runoff election) out of the candidates'
hands and get a better voter turnout,"
Mary Jo Harris, Elections Board
chairwoman, said the students who
wrote in a candidate would still be
counted in the number of students who
voted. "The votes have to match within
5 percent of the sign-in sheet."

by this year's SBP election, the board

Sometime between Feb. 7 and Feb.
16, the Public Staff received a memo
randum dated Feb. 7 from an anony
mous source. The memorandum was
addressed to management-level em
ployees of Southern Bell and gave
"sample" letters to be used "as guide
lines" for writing letters to the Utilities
Commission in support of "Caller ID."
The author of the memorandum, Bob
Freedman, is an operations manager in
Southern Bell Community Affairs,
according to the Public Staff.
The memorandum also asked em
ployees to use their "personal, non-Bell
stationery and (their) own postage
stamp" and said letters should be sent to
the chairman of the Utilities Commis
sion, William Redman.
Although the commission has now
requested that corporate affiliation be
revealed in such letter-writing activity,
Bell will still not use company letter
head to educate the Public Staff and
attorney general's office of any non
official company business, Collins said.
"It is not company policy to use
company letterhead for any business
except official company business,"
Collins said, "and letter-writing of

Students who haven't returned the
1990 Census form by the end of this
week will have missed their opportu
nity to be counted.
"This is the only opportunity for
students to be counted," said Bud
Hillar, U.S. Census crew leader for
Orange County. Students will not be
counted on the forms that their par
ents have received unless they live at
home. "It is important for the Univer
sity and for students to be counted,"
he said, "It only takes a minute or
two. It is something that no student
has an excuse not to finish."
Students living in residence halls
and in sorority and fraternity houses
are counted in the Group Quarters
segment of the census, along with
people who reside in places such as
nursing homes and prisons. This
portion of the census began April 2
and ends April 16.
"The way they 're being enumer
ated is everyone is getting an individ
ual census form," Hillar said. "They
are to fill it out, return it to an R.A. or
contact person, and the census per
sonnel will pick them up."

have the opportunity to fill out a census

The UNC Building and Grounds
Committee made no decision Tuesday
about a site for the new business school
after committee members discussed the
matter with representatives from the
College of Arts and Sciences and the
School of Business.
The committee postponed its deci
sion until more information could be
compiled about the sites.
"We are not under a time constraint
to get something done within the next
few months," said John Sanders, direc
tor of the Institute of Government and
chairman of the Building and Grounds
Gordon Rutherford, director of fa
cilities planning, identified nine pos
sible sites for the business school, in
cluding Ehringhaus Field, Kenan Cen
ter, Whitehead Residence Hall, Battle
Park, Carmichael Field and two off
campus sites. Rutherford concluded that
the Whitehead and Kenan Center sites
were "superior to all others."
But after reviewing an architectural
proposal, the committee decided that
building on the Whitehead site would
be too expensive, Rutherford said.
Therefore, the Kenan Center, located
next to the Smith Center, is the business
school's first choice. "Kenan is an
outstanding site for a building without
examining access issues," he said.
Stephen Birdsall, senior associate
dean of the College Arts and Sciences,
said he had concerns about locating the
business school in Kenan Center. The
time allotted between classes is not '
sufficient for students to walk from a
class on campus down to Kenan, he

"Posting it makes it the responsibil
ity of the candidate to find out what the
hell is going on," Harris said.
Candidates will be able to respond to
Elections Board decisions as soon as
they are made, Hildebolt said. "Now it
will be impossible for somebody to get
caught behind a decision they weren't
aware of being made."
Bibbs said the new requirement
would keep candidates up-to-date. "This
will keep candidates from making any
errors contradictory to the code."
The Election Board chairman will
be required to inform the student body
Bureau information about the number
of students 1 i ving in the residence halls,"
said Wayne Kuncl, Director of Univer
sity Housing. "Our resident hall staff
helped distribute the forms."
Bobby Jones, a resident assistant in
Connor Residence Hall, said, "I'm
handing the forms to them (residents)
in person so they can fill them out and
turn them back in."
Valerie Leach, a resident assistant in
Whitehead Residence Hall, said the
forms were distributed to her residents
by a Census Bureau representative. "We
are responsible for collecting them and
taking them to Carmichael desk where
'the representatives will pick them up,"
Every student living in a residence
hall should have received an individual
form. Forms were still being distrib
uted as late as Wednesday, Hillar said.
Due dates were scheduled at different
times to help the people who are re
sponsible for collecting and counting
Students received either the short
census form, which had a few ques
tions, or a longer, more detailed form.
Census forms are distributed randomly
so that every sixth person will receive a
long form. "It takes about 10 minutes to
fill out, as opposed to a couple of min
utes," Hillar said, "While every ques
tion may not be applicable to students,

"There is a loss of potential educa
tional opportunity imposed by the"
geography of this site. It is also impor
tant for professional school students to
interact freely with liberal arts students
as well as expose liberal arts students to
professional school courses."
Mike Miles, professor of urban
development in the School of Business,
suggested grouping classes together to
avoid making students commute sev
eral times a day. A business major takes
an average of three business courses in
a semester, and these could be blocked
together on Tuesdays and Thursdays so
a student would commute only twice a
week, he said.
Birdsall said he did not think group
ing classes would be feasible because
business students had to fulfill require
ments in the College of Arts and Sci
ences as well. Business students would
be left with only the remaining days to
take other courses, which would cause
scheduling problems, he said.
TedTeague, a member of the student
government ad hoc committee on the
business school site, expressed con
cern for students who are not in the
School of Business but still take classes
there. "The people who will be hardest
hit will be people minoring in business,
because they will have to commute to
Kenan for one course."
The proposed Battle Park site, near
the Forest Theatre, also drew criticism.
Although it met the criteria for the
building, Rutherford said there would
be "a political price to be paid for the
consideration of that site."

results to the student body president
within 72 hours of certification. The
previous law required the chairman to
inform the student body and the presi

Because the group had discussed only
10 pages of the 15-page document, and
Student Congress members had to leave

agreed to finish discussions April 20

As the census forms are returned,
names are marked off. Within the
next two weeks, follow-up calls will
be made to students who failed to
return their forms, Hillar said.
Failure to return a census form is
against the law. "It's not a strict
penalty, but it's something that ev
eryone needs to do," Hillar said. The
information collected by the Census
Bureau on the forms is more impor
tant than the legal obligations to re-0
turn forms, he said.
'The information is used for a lot
of planning, like the distribution of
funds and the number of representa-'
ti ves in Congress. Those type of things
are affected if people don't turn their
forms in," Hillar said
The information that students'
provide on their census forms is
strictly confidential, Kuncl said. "The '
information people provide is not ;
shared with anybody. In fact, the 1990 '
Census results will be locked up until
the year 2062."
Kuncl also encouraged students to
complete their census forms. "We're"

census forms and return them so we j
can get a complete count of all stu-v.
