Arnold Trujillo, the new University
public safety director, said coming to
UNC from a commuter school of 6,000
was a challenge.
After working for 19 years as the
public safety director at the University
of Colorado at Colorado Springs,
Trujillo will become the UNC public
safety director March 4.
"I know it will be a good experience
for me and an educational experience
also," he said. "I have always looked
forward to going to a larger campus."
But differences exist between the
University of Colorado and UNC.

Trujillo said traveling to other uni
versities taught him problems at small
campuses were similar to the problems
at larger campuses.
"I realized that I had talents that I was
not using, and that I can do this job (at
a larger institution) as well or better
than anyone else can," Trujillo said.
Carolyn Elfland, interim vice-chancellor
of business affairs, said she was
unaware that UC-Colorado Springs had
only 6,000 students. But she saidTrujillo
could adapt to the differences between
the two universities.

slides in national rankings
By Natarsha Witherspoon
UNC's library system slipped from
1 7th to 20th in a recent national ranking,
a drop University administrators said
was a direct result of state budget cuts.
University librarian James Govan
said budget cuts during the past several
years were to blame.
'The ranking is clearly related to the
reduction in the budget," Govan said.
"We will drop further unless we can get

"Big time politics has come to North
Carolina," announced U.S. Rep. David
Price, D-N.C, to a group of UNC
students who gathered in their semi
nar class Thursday night to hear him
discuss his experiences as a con
gressman. Professor Alan Hirsh invited Price
to speak before the 1 5 students enrolled
in Hirsh's seminar focusing on the
N.C. General Assembly.
"Politics now has a certain hard
edge to it," Price said. "It has become
a tricky environment and requires a
great deal of strategizing.
"We've gone from being a typical.
Southern, one-party state where most
of the political battles were fought in
the Democratic primary, to being a
genuinely competitive two-party state
that attracts a great deal of national
interest," Price said.
Price pointed out that the political
game does not end with the election
results. "The game only changes form.
There's an inside game that goes on.
You immediately begin trying to
maneuver within the legislature.
"This transformation has a lot of
negative potential. Politicians can
abuse television by using it to accuse
each other of ridiculous things."
Significant portions of N.C. politics
have become dominated by 30-second
television spots and million dollar
campaigns, he said.
"Big, expensive television cam
paigns have become the norm," he

Sarah Pritchard, senior program of
ficer for the association, said, 'The
ranking doesn't reflect total quality of
the library. It is a quick way for us to
access if a library is eligible for mem
bership in our organization."
Pritchard said she was concerned that
people would read too much into the
rankings. The number of libraries in the
ranking varies from year to year, mak
ing it difficult to compare research li
braries, she said.
But Donald Boulton, vice chancellor
for Student Affairs, called the budget
cuts a blow to the heart of the University.
set to leave University
By Karen Schwartz
The University's Office of Waste
Reduction and Recycling is looking for
a new recycling coordinator to manage
what has become one of the biggest
programs in the state.
Rhonda Sherman-Huntoon, the
University's recycling coordinator since
March 1990, is leaving today to take a
job in the N.C. Office of Waste Re
duction. Sherman-Huntoon said she consid
ered the new job a career advancement.
"I'm certainly not leaving because
I'm unhappy with my job here," she
said. "It's just a great opportunity."
Physical Plant Director Herbert Paul
said the position of coordinator called
for someone who could manage the
University's programs, which now
collect 50 to 60 tons of newspaper,
cardboard, aluminum, plastics and
mixed paper each month.
"Our recycling program is pretty
mature," he said. "It's going to be even
tougher now to find an individual than
when Rhonda came on. The position
requires a lot of logistical planning, an
ability to work with people and mar
The University's recycling has
probably doubled in the last year, which
adds pressure in finding a capable co
ordinator to fill Sherman-Huntoon's
position, Paul said.
The position falls into a state salary
grade that ranges from $24,000 to
$37,000 a year, he said.
Sherman-Huntoon said although
budget cuts had reduced her office's

"The budget cuts put a special kind of
hurt on our libraries," Boulton said. The
University could suffer permanent
damage from the cuts, he said.
A report from the University's Li
brary Administrative Board, which will
be presented to the Faculty Council
today, said the budget cuts could destroy
the libraries' ability to buy books.
"In 1984, our libraries ranked 13th in
