Carolina Course Review Receives
Loan to Pay Off $4,000 Debt
The Carolina Course Review will con
tinue to publish next semester thanks to a
loan from the Student Activity Funds Of
fice. However, costs may force the Course
Review to change its format.
The loan, which the Student Fee Audit
Committee recommended Thursday night,
gives the Carolina Course Review enough
money to repay the printer for the Spring
1996 publication, plus 1.5 percent interest
on its overdue bill.
As of Wednesday, the Carolina Course
Review had only 23 cents in its SAFO
account and owed $4,000 to its printer, the
Publishing Place Inc.
The committee decided the money
would be repaid to SAFO over the next
two semesters by reducing student fee alio

Owners gripped their Frisbees in antici

running and leaping dogs at the sixth an

The event was held at the Canrboro
Community Park and consisted of two
separate competitions. The mini-distance
competition had 29 participants, and the
free flight competition had three partici
Each dog in the mini-distance competi

many Frisbees as he could. Scores were
based on the distance the dog ran to catch
the Frisbee and whether he caught it in
mid-air or with his paws on the ground.
Not all the dogs were interested in sim
ply returning the Frisbee to their owners.
Christine Callwood’s dog Malcolm had
bigger plans and made a grand escape out
the fence as soon as he got hold of the
Frisbee. All was not lost, however, and
Malcolm returned to the field to catch and
retrieve one of the Frisbees, which was

Dervin Tapped as New ASG President
■ He pledged to increase
communication between the
16 UNC-system campuses.
BY SHARIF DURHAMS
Running on a platform of uniting the 16
UNC-system schools, senior John Dervin
was elected president of the Association of
Student Governments on Friday.
Dervin said he wanted to strengthen the
power of the association of UNC-system
student body presidents and campus del
egates by lobbying for a vote on the Board
of Governors. Currently, the ASG presi
dent is a non-voting member.
“In the past, this body has kind of floun
dered without a purpose and without a
vision,” he said. “What I want to do with
this association is to build it.”
To address concerns about racial ten
sions between historically black and his
torically white schools, Dervin said he

“In our two day assessment meeting,
one of the things that came up was the
system or the plan that was used 10 or 11
years ago. We wanted to look at the old
process and see if it’s what we want to do
this time,” Cameron said.
Spangler, who turned 64 earlier this
month, has said he will announce his re

board at a recent retreat that they need to

president will take about a year. The search

said he expects about 200 people to apply.
The UNC system was formed in 1972.
Replacing William Friday, Spangler be
come only the second person to lead the
16-school system. Spangler has been in his
current position for 10 years.
Friday retired at age 65, but BOG rules
would allow Spangler to stay in office until
he turned 70. “We’ve only done this once
before, in 1985. A lot of things have changed
since then. We need to take a good look at
the process. It’s very important that the
board be supportive of whoever is chosen
for the position,” Neill said.
Spangler said Neill’s decision to form
the committee was “entirely appropriate at
date to the BOG because so few students
voted. Only 3,166 students voted on the
issue. “We’ve got to empower students,
get respect for students and for student
