Republicans likely will enter the 2003
legislative session with a razor-thin major
ity in the N.C. House, already fueling
debate within the legislature as to who
will lead the chamber as House speaker.
But many lawmakers say the key to
leading a split House is through coalitions
that incorporate the goals of both parties.
As of Friday, Republicans held a 61-
59 lead over Democrats. Four counties
still are recounting ballots and have yet
to declare official winners, which could
shift the balance of power.
Democrats have had a 62-58 lead
over Republicans the last two years.
Those thrust out of their positions
include House Majority Leader Phil
Baddour, D-Wayne, who lost his race
after an election glitch was discovered
and corrected Friday, giving Republicans
a one-seat advantage in a chamber that
appeared headed for a 60-60 split.
Baddour said he will request a hand
to-eye recount of votes before he con-

People with a variety of ethnic back

The evening began with a dinner rep

foods of eight different Asian countries.
Foods included mixed vegetables in
coconut curry from Thailand, pork satay

Japan and steamed white rice from China.

BOG's Budget Aids Salary, Growth
By Cleve R. Wootson Jr.
Assistant State & National Editor
The UNC-system Board of Governors
approved Friday a two-year budget that
would provide hundreds of millions of dol
lars more than what has been allocated in
years past -but some officials say the
increase is likely to be accepted by the state
Board members unanimously approved
a two-year $4.87 billion budget with little
discussion after BOG Budget and Finance
Committee Chairman Addison Bell moved
for a vote. The budget now will head to
Gov. Mike Easley and then to the N.C.
General Assembly for consideration.
The budget requests funding for some
things that have been contentious among the
BOG, system universities and the legislature.
It calls for s7l million in faculty salary
increases for next school year and $149.7

TAR HEELS CRUISE
TO 14TH ACC TITLE
By Kellie Dixon
Assistant Sports Editor
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - When senior Susan Bush settled
into her hotel room in Tallahassee with teammate Alyssa
Ramsey, she said, the two made a pact.
“Coming into the tournament, I only had two goals and
forward Alyssa Ramsey only had four assists,”
Bush said. “We were roommates, and we made
this deal. She was going to assist in this tourna
ment, and I was going to score.”
In the seventh minute, on her first shot of the
game, their plan became a reality.
Bush’s goal ignited a streak for the Tar Heels
that kept Clemson from getting off a single shot
until midway through the second half, when
UNC’s 6-0 drubbing of the Tigers at the Seminole Soccer
Complex to clinch its 14th ACC title was almost complete.
About 10 minutes after Bush’s goal, North Carolina coach
Anson Dorrance substituted defender Catherine Reddick
into the game. Reddick took a 3 a.m. Sunday flight from
California, where she played 95 minutes in the Gold Cup
championship game with the U.S. Women’s National Team
on Saturday night.
Less than 30 seconds after entering the game in a forward
position, the junior finished a cross from Ramsey with a

million the following year, representing a 6
percent increase in salaries each year.
At the board’s October meeting, mem
bers mandated that individual campuses
could not use campus-based tuition
increases for merit-based faculty salary
increases - drawing the ire of the UNC
system Faculty Assembly.
But board members retorted that it is the
responsibility of the General Assembly to
provide for faculty salary increases, not that
of individual campuses.
“Given the 2002 North Carolina General
Assembly’s lack of providing any money
any money - for salary increases, it is
increasingly difficult for us to attract and
retain the best faculty,” said Molly Broad,
president of the UNC system. “And we
ignore this truth at our own peril.... If we fail
to add salary increases, we are going to place
at risk the quality of our academic offerings.”
The board also requested $46.6 million

“I was expecting to give a break to some of the forwards,”
Reddick said. “I didn’t expect my first touch to be a goal. I
miss scoring, and I miss playing up front.”
The goal wouldn’t be the only one for Reddick.

school year and $84.9 million in the 2004-

Last year, BOG members doubted the
legislature would provide the system with
$66 million for enrollment growth in light
of the state’s fiscal crisis. The board
approved an 8 percent tuition increase for
in-state students and a 12 percent increase
for out-of-state students to fund about half

What makes this study different
from similar salary analyses done at
UNC-CH is that it is a campuswide
study, including the clinical areas of
the schools of Dentistry and
Medicine, and includes non-tenure
Provost Robert Shelton said the
first thing that needs to be done is to
examine the results of individual
departments to find out why the dis
parity is there.
The study shows that about 80 per
cent of the disparity is due to vari
ables included in the study, such as
years at the University and rank. But
about 15 percent to 20 percent of the
disparity is unexplained.
One theory behind the discrepan-
cy is the idea that women aren’t as likely to leave or to threat
en to leave for better salaries as are men. Risa Palm, dean
of the College of Arts and Sciences, where men receive
$ 1,169 more than women, said that while women sometimes
do not threaten to leave, this shouldn’t be the case.
“One of the issues is that after a certain period, the longer
you stay at the University, the more your salary is dam
aged,” Palm said.
Etta Pisano, chairwoman of the UNC-CH Committee on
the Status of Women, said one reason women are less like
ly to threaten to leave is because many want to raise fami
lies. There is no excuse to underpay faculty based on these
circumstances, she said.
“There are ways to make both men and women more
comfortable in the stage of their careers where they want to
start a family.”
There are large differences in men’s and women’s
salaries in the School of Medicine, where the discrepancy is
$6,976. This holds true particularly in the Department of
Clinical Medicine, which has the highest disparity at $9,293.
But Jeffrey Houpt, dean of the School of Medicine, said
that for a number of years, the school has conducted its own
salary review through a salary equity committee. The two
women and one minority who constitute the committee
have found no disparity, he said.
“We thought this mechanism would protect us from this
kind of difficulty,” Houpt said. “If there is a problem, then
we need to fix it”

Since a recent study revealed salary disparities between
male and female faculty at UNC-Chapel Hill, officials say
the next step is to find out why.
The comprehensive study was presented to the Faculty

with gender equity approached the chancellor and the
provost in 2001, asking for an examination of salary dis
parities at UNC-CH. The full report’s results were made
