Union resident to strive for imiDroyed campiis relations
By Birch DeVault
Eric Rosen, Carolina Union Activi
ties Board president-elect, said his
mission as president would be to enrich
and enlighten UNC while addressing
the problems the Union encounters
Murine his term
Rosen was selerteH Feh 1ft hv the
Carolina Union Board of Directors to
take over as president next year.
! "The main problem the Union faces
is its lack of identity on campus," he
said. Rosen plans to try to solve this
crisis by improving relations with stu
dent organizations such as the Campus
Y, the Black Student Movement and the
Black Cultural Center, he said.
Rosen also plans to actively recruit
new activity board chairmen and women
by contacting students and faculty by
mail, he said. "Many students think that
activities just happen at the Union, and
they don't know how much money goes
into them," he said.
The Union's purpose is to work with
the students and not simply use their
money, he said. The Union receives
about $ 1 50,000 in fees a year, which is
one-third of student activity fees.
Recruitments for new CUAB chair
men and women will begin next week,
and no experience is necessary, he said.
"I hope that the members of the new
board will reflect all the walks of life on
campus and broaden the scope of our
activities," Rosen said,
Archie Copeland, Union director, said
he had full confidence in Rosen and
hoped he would successfully fulfill the
position of CUAB president.
"I trust the Board of Directors (who
appointed Rosen) and from what I've
seen, Eric's work is effective," he said.
Rosen, a junior from Saugerties, N. Y.,
said he looked for a balance in his life,
where work and fun both have equal
roles. He also has served as the Theater
Arts Committee chair and the coordina
tor for the performing arts.
The CUAB office should be acces
sible, he said. He plans to work closely
with the public relations chair to inform
students more about the group, he said.
"My passion is arts and entertain
ment," he said. "I believe it can change
views on campus, create solutions and
present crises that need to be discussed
and solved. People think that when those
who are diverse get together, every
thing will be fine, but it's not. There are
problems that must be addressed,
problems that usually are left unsaid.
That is one thing I want to take care of,
He probably will spend 20 to 25
hours a week working specifically with
the Union, Rosen said.
"I have the opportunity to work with
an excellent staff and to develop new
board committees," he said.
.National sports paper expands
distriJbuition to Chapel ffll area
By Chris Goodson
The National, a daily sports newspa

Hill area this month, but officials said
. they still did not know how well the
paper was selling here.
The National began production

across the country.

"Sales in the area are strong," said
Linda Morgan, a public relations rep

USA Today has not altered its re

debut, Morgan said.
USA Today does not compete di

"There are three other reasons to buy

Butch Robertson, a public relations
representative of the Raleigh News and

sales figures, The National would act as
a supplement to other news sources.
"Most people still will depend on
local newspapers for their sports," he

National could provide a local supple

"If 5,000 people a day are buying it,
or 1 0,000, we would have to think about
doing something special," he said.
A local edition would provide local
columnists and sports results, Hammond
said. "You might have a local columnist
who would do more of a slant towards
local sports teams."

Aldermen vote mot to allocate
friiids to regional bicycle plan
By Kris Donahue
The Carrboro Board of Aldermen
voted unanimously Tuesday night not
to contribute money to a regional bi
cycle plan with Durham, Chapel Hill,
Durham County and Orange County.
The $30,000 plan, which would
have cost Carrboro an estimated
$3,709.50, will focus on bicycling
education and enforcement in the area
The program is expected to include
strategies for a helmet campaign, a
bicycle ordinance to be enforced
throughout the region, and education
in schools and driver education classes.
Although the aldermen were not
willing to contribute money to the
plan, they agreed to endorse it.
Alderman Randy Marshall said the
benefits for Carrboro residents from
such a plan would not justify the ex
penditures. Carrboro'sTransportation Advisory
Board (TAB) recommended that the
aldermen not buy into the regional
"We felt that we just wouldn't get a
tangible benefit out of it," said Alex
Zaffron, TAB chairman.
Carrboro could better spend the
money on its own bike plan or on other
services for the town, he said.
Carrboro Mayor Eleanor Kinnaird,
.v,::::-W.:v.:-.:-. VV .'.V
r ,8., JL
who rode her bike to work for 1 1 years,
said Carrboro was doing fine without a
"We led the way in bicycle every
thing," she said.
In a telephone interview Thursday,
Kinnaird said, "Carrboro has built more
bike paths than any other city in North
Carolina, and probably in the U.S."
The 1986 Board of Aldermen estab
lished the Elizabeth Cotton bike path,
which leads from downtown Carrboro
to the University, Kinnaird said. In
addition, each of the town's major
streets Main Street, Hillsborough
Street and Greensboro Street have
six-foot bike paths on either side.
"We have gone beyond our duty,
especially in trying to provide students
with transportation that is safe and
fast," Kinnaird said.
The Transportation Advisory
Committee (TAC) originally proposed
the plan. The committee, responsible
for transportation planning for
Durham, Chapel Hill and Carrboro,
reported that there was a need in the
area for such a plan.
Mark Fiers, Chapel Hill transporta
tion planner, said that in light of
Carrboro's decision, he did not know
if the bicycle plan issue would go
before the Chapel Hill Town Council.
"It's possible that there may be
alternatives," Fiers said. "It's hard to
say at this time. It's possible we may
still have the other four jurisdictions
TAC chose Chapel Hill to serve as
the lead agency for the regional bi
cycle plan. Chapel Hill Mayor
Jonathan Howes was a member of the
TAB, Fiers said.
"I'm assuming we have support for
(the plan), but I don't know when it's
going to the council," he said.
