Vice President Strikes Out
At Opponents of Nominee
NASHVILLE, Term. Striking back
Monday in the row over President Clinton’s
surgeon general nominee, Vice President
A1 Gore called Dr. Henry Foster Jr. the
victim of an anti-abortion campaign to
intimidate Congress. “We’re not going to
let the extremists win,” he declared.
But critics of the Tennessee obstetrician
showed no sign of easingup. House Speaker
Newt Gingrich said in Georgia, “I think
he's going to be very hard to confirm. I
think it’s going to be a very embarrassing
set of hearings.”
But Mike McCurry, White House press
secretary, also joined in the tougher rheto
ric the White House has begun using. He
said extremists in the right-to-life move
ment “have now hooked Republicans and
Congress by the nose.”

SBP Candidates Do Last-Minute Campaigning

With their campaigns coming to a close,
student body president candidates are do

what I consider will be my basis of support,
but we’re still recruiting people into the
campaign,” Cunningham said. He said
members of his campaign staff were also
coordinating which people would hand
out literature at which poll sites today.
Candidate Kelly Jo Gamer said her
tactics would be similar to her opponents’.
“We want to have more publicity out
there so my staff will be going door to door
and chalking the sidewalk,” she said.
“I learned a lot about campus policy at
the University,” she said. “The campaign
reflects who I am and what I stand for.”
In many of the races, “dirty” politics
have not been a factor.
Brandenburg supporter Lara Ramsey
believes the candidates have followed the
rules. “Rumors are going around, but for
the most part, [the campaigns] have been
clean,” she said.
Most of the candidates plan to watch
the election results Tuesday night.
“We will be getting everyone together
at Carroll Hall, room 106 and see what
happens,” Dervin said.
Gamerplans a more casual atmosphere.
“I will be eating at Lenoir and going to
Manning Hall to watch the election results
after 6 p.m.,” she said.
Candidates Jen Fiumara, Andrew
France and Robert Simes could not be
reached for comment.

Where SBP Candidates
Stand on the Issues
BOG to Enforce
BY BRIAN VANN
The UNC Board of Governors voted Friday to install a plan
penalizing UNC-system schools for exceeding the 18 percent
maximum on out-of-state student enrollment.
The board, the policy-making body for the 16 UNC-system
schools, decided to implement financial penalties for exceeding
the 18 percent limit.
BOG Vice Chairman Joseph Thomas said the 18 percent out
of-state policy should be enforced.
“This policy [the 18 percent limit] has been out there for years
and has been violated,” Thomas said. “We’ve got mandates from
the General Assembly to start enforcing it.”
Under the new policy, UNC-system schools that exceed the
limit on entering undergraduates two years in a row will have a
portion of their funding withheld. The amount of funding denied
will be determined by the percentage of out-of state students.
Provost Richard McCormick said the University would take
the necessary measures to get out-of-state enrollment under the 18
“We’re taking it very seriously because the penalty is very
severe,” McCormick said. “The admissions staff is going to be
very cautious and will try to be under 18 percent. We will,
however, try to remain as close to that number as possible.”
He said the recent rise in out-of-state students was a result of a
steady increase in the number of students who decided to attend
the University after being admitted.

to our university, one of the cornerstones
of the state’s reputation,’’ he said.
Spangler said the faculty deserved an
increase in salary greater than one adjusted
to reflect an increase in the cost of living.
“I don’t think we should advocate fac
ulty salary increases just equal to the cost of
living increase. It’s extremely counterpro
ductive to the interests of the state, not only
in the educational realm, which is para
mount, but economically as well,” he said.
