GSU files lawsuit
By Shannon Crownover
Graduate Students United has filed a
lawsuit against Student Congress to have
restrictions placed on its publications
The suit is similar to one filed by the
Carolina Gay and Lesbian Association
before Spring Break.
Congress stipulated that neitherGSU
nor any of its publications could use the
allotted student funds to advocate, en
dorse or oppose legislation or govern
mental actions. Congress will require
to fill vacancy on
Board of Trustees
By Ashley Fogle
Assistant University Editor
Raleigh attorney CressieThigpen will
become the newest member of the
University's Board of Trustees.
The UNC Board of Governors on
Friday chose Thigpen over three other
candidates. Thigpen will replace trustee
William Darity, who resigned in De
cember. Thigpen said he did not have any
particular agenda in mind to take into
his new position.
"I don't know any issues facing the
Board of Trustees right now," he said.
"I want to talk to Chancellor (Paul)
Hardin, the other trustees and students
on campus to get the feel for issues
facing the University."
He did not know when his term offi
cially would begin. "I'm looking for
ward to it, but I don't know when I'll
really get started," he said.
BOT Chairman Robert Strickland
said he had not heard the news of
Thigpen's approval, but thought
Thigpen would be sworn in at the next
"I 'm glad to hear it," he said. "I don't
know the person, but the BOG has done
a good job of filling these positions.
"It will be good to have the board
back up to full capacity."
Mark Bibbs, an ex-officio student
member of the BOG, and another BOG
member nominated Thigpen for the
Bibbs said he was pleased that the
BOG had considered his suggestion.
This is the first time the BOG has ap
proved a student-nominated candidate.
new UNC police chief
will take over April 1
By Steve Politi
The University Pol ice department has
begun to search for a new chief and
hopes to have the position filled by
April 1, an administrator said Sunday.
Arnold Trujillo stepped down from
the campus public safety department's
top post Feb. 1 8 after holding the job for
less than a year. Carolyn Elfland, asso
ciate vice chancellor for business, is
heading the department on an interim
The reason for Trujillo's departure
remains a mystery. Elfland and police
officials refused to comment on why he
resigned, andTrujillo, who changed his
phone number to an unlisted one, did
not return to the job after his resignation
Elfland said the department had re
ceived five applications so far. Most of
the applicants went through the process
last year when Trujillo was chosen.
"It turned out to be a good strategy to
start contacting the folks that were semi
finalists last year because a number of
them are reapplying," Elfland said. "We
had very, very, very high quality people
The department used a nationwide
search when Trujillo was selected last
year, but Elfland said she decided against
such a search this time because it would
take too long.
"I really wanted to see if I could
short-circuit that by contacting last

Joel Sipress, editor of GSU's news
letter, Grad Grind, said the restrictions
would defeat the purpose of GSU.
"GSU is an organization of graduate
students and supporters that exists to
work for better wages, benefits and
working conditions for graduate stu
dent employees," Sipress said.
Sipress said the purpose of GSU was
to advocate graduate student concerns
by informing them of legislative ac
tions that affect them.
"I feel that out of the field of candi
dates, Cressie best exemplifiedthe quali
ties we were looking for," Bibbs said.
"His legal background and alsohis back
ground as an academic will best help the
University face its problems over the
next few years."
Bibbs said Thigpen would be instru
mental in addressing the needs of Uni
versity housekeepers and employees
who filed grievances against UNC ad
ministrators alleging discriminatory
Trustee David Whichard said he did
not know Thigpen and was not aware
that the BOG had approved his nomina
tion. "I knew he was a name being consid
ered," he said. "I know he's from Ra
leigh and that he's (N.C. House Speaker
Daniel) Blue's law partner, but I don't
know him or his qualifications.
"I have no opinion. Whoever they
chose suits me."
Bibbs predicted that Thigpen would
be sensitive to the needs of all 1 6 UNC
"He will look out for the needs of
students and at the same time think
about the mission of the University and
the mission of the system as a whole,"
he said. "He will think about the other
1 5 schools, maintaining this University
as the primary focus.
"His knowledge and background
make him very competent to address
the academic needs of the University."
Thigpen isagraduateof N.C. Central
University and Rutgers Law School. He
is a partner in the law firm of Thigpen,
Blue, Stephens and Fellers.

The employment division placed ad
vertisements in the News & Observer of
Raleigh and posted notification of the
opening on campus, Elfland said.
Two committees will interview the
applicants. The first committee will

Officials from departments that fre

"We work for the state, and we have
to be able to comment on political is
sues," Sipress said. "The rider placed
on GSU represents an enormous hin
drance on our ability to do our job."
Congress members used Title 2, Ar
ticle 3, Section E. 1 of the Student Gov
ernment Code as justification for the
restrictions. The code states that student
government cannot appropriate any stu
dent fees to services or events of a
religious or politically partisan nature.

No. 1 Devils overcome Davis dandy, 89-77
By Mark Anderson
DURHAM For 34 minutes Sun
day, Duke and North Carolina played
one of the finest games in college
In the final six minutes, Duke dem
onstrated why it has been the top
ranked team in the nation all year. The
Blue Devils used a 20-6 closing burst
to outlast the No. 16 Tar Heels 89-77
in Cameron Indoor Stadium.
Duke finished the regular season
25-2, 14-2 in the conference. North
Carolina lost its fifth game in its last
six outings and fell to 1 9-8, 9-7 in the
ACC. In the first round of the ACC
Tournament, Duke will take on the
Clemson-Maryland winner at 2:30
p.m. Friday. UNC will play Wake
Forest Friday at 9 p.m.
The tournament games will have a
tough time topping Sunday's amazing
"It was an unbelievable game," said
Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski.
"Both teams played so hard. (It was)
one of the great games in the history of
For UNC, that great game ended
six minutes too soon. With 6:17 re
maining. Duke's Brian Davis went
the length of the court to tie the game
at 7 1 . The Blue Devils' Antonio Lang
followed with a layup, and Christian
Laettner added a 3-pointer for a 7.6-7 1
lead. UNC never recovered.
In the final 7:14, the Tar Heels
missed 7 of 10 shots and turned the
ball over five times.
"We were terrific in the last five
minutes," Krzyzewski said. "We fi
nally broke them down a little; we
finally stopped them. We did every
thing right, and it wasn't just one
North Carolina's wretched final
moments could not take the luster off
another incredible battle in the UNC
Duke rivalry. Sunday's game did not
feature the last-second drama of
UNC's 75-73 upset of Duke Feb. 5,
but it had everything else a basketball
fan could want.
Pregamc Hype: These two
schools do not like each other, but
Sunday's game featured an incredible
atmosphere even before the tipoff.
UNC's Eric Montross dissed Duke in
the press, and Duke's Brian Davis told
Montross what he thought of him.
Duke fans wanted revenge for
UNC's earlier upset and Chapel Hill's
subsequent celebration, and they
camped out in record numbers to wit
ness it. It was Senior Day in Durham,
and the Blue Devils paid tribute to
Laettner, Davis and Ron Burt.
Prior to the game, Duke students
acted out a skit featuring UNC head
coach Dean "Igor" Smith unveiling

"Politically partisan means you sup

said. "Political means you are involved

on political issues. GSU's written com
