Forum extends discussion
By APRIL DRAUGHN
The University Buildingand Grounds
Committee's criteria for selecting a re
location site for the sculpture in front of
Davis Library drew fire from students
at a forum Thursday night.
Some opponents of the sculpture,
"The Student Body," rejected the
committee's guidelines, specifically the
point to locate the artwork, which was
erected Oct. 23, in a place outdoors with
a moderate amount of student traffic.
An offensive piece of art should not
be placed in the center of campus, said
Sabrina Evans, president of the Black
Student Movement. "I don't think we're
talking about just placing these statues
where they can't be seen," she said.
The University should consider
placing the statues in a location tradi
tionally designated for art, Evans said.
Sites suggested by members of Com
munity Against Offensive Statues are
the Hanes Art Center and the Paul Green
Theatre, she said.
CAOS was formed to protest the
statues' location and to try to get them
moved from in front of the library be
cause members believed the sculpture
has racist and sexist implications. The
group has petitioned the administration
about the statues.
Other students at the forum, which
was sponsored by the Buildings and
Grounds Committee, said the statues
should not be moved.
Charlton Allen, chairman of the
College Republicans, said the statues
would offend some students no matter
where they were located and removing
them from view altogether would be the
the state faces in the next two years.
Martin will submit a budget package for
the 1991-93 biennium when the N.C.
General Assembly convenes in Febru
ary. Although Martin said he presented
the list to spark discussion and did not
necessarily support all the items, the

wants to prolong this issue.
"There may be some decisions soon,
but not overnight," Hardin said. "This is
complex and I'm giving it a tremendous
amount of time and putting it ahead of
everything else. Alexander will know
within a few days the steps I'm taking to
answer his questions."
When Edwards approached the
NAACP in early November about filing
a federal complaint on her behalf, the
organization gave the University a set
of stipulations about the grievances.
The NAACP is asking Hardin that
the University immediately drop the
appeals of two discrimination griev

the purpose of the forum was to hear
student comment on the statues.
The committee will try to make its
recommendation at a meeting next
Tuesday so that Chancellor Paul Hardin

sculpture's site during the winter holi
day, he said.

Some students disagreed with Allen's
claim that relocating the statues would
be hiding them.
Bjorn DeBear, a sophomore major
ing in political science, said the area
beside Hanes Art Center would meet
the student traffic guideline. "I don't
think it would be hidden there," he said.
The major committee guidelines that
some students had problems with were
that the site be outdoors and that the site
be near the center of campus where
there is substantial student foot traffic.
Chris Bracey, CAOS spokesman, said
the guidelines conflicted with student
