No one contested the presidential election
as of late Monday night. Assuming no one
does so, Williams wins by default.
"We're bagging it," said El Libre, who is

"It was just becoming a stunt, a ridiculous

Winners have been declared in five

Chairman Bill Daughtridge. said Monday.
Because election laws do not call for run

Senior Class President, Vice President, and
Carolina Athletic Association President, the
candidates who led in Wednesdays voting
have been declared the winners even
though they did not have a majority of the
total votes, Daughtridge said.
The Senior Class President winner is Don
Kanak, the Vice President is Eddie Hudson,
and the President of the Carolina Athletic

The map printed in last week's Z? 77,
which was provided by then Elections Board
Chairman Rick Harwood, was incorrectly
labeled in those three races. Daughtridge
said he thought some candidates ran in
districts they did not live in because of the
incorrect map. Candidates in each district
will be determined today, he said.
Although campus elections law stipulates
that run-off elections be held "on the second
Wednesday after the initial election,"
Daughtridge said the law was amended by
the Campus Governing Council, allowing
him to hold run-offs a week after the
election. Daughtridge could not produce a

If the current dose of Florida-like weather doesn't hinder
the annual Tar Heel exodus to the surf and sand of Ft.
Lauderdale next week, the gasoline situation might.
A survey of state police and AAA Auto Clubs along the
four-state route suggests that if you can get to Georgia, fill
up and make it from there on a tank, there should be no
problems. However, those who need to get gas in Florida
may end up getting their tans on the hoods of their cars and
drinking beer somewhere on 1-95.
1 UNC- G streakers
snap UNC record;
j 258 nudes join in
Compiled from staff and wire reports
Scattered streaking continued on the Carolina campus
Monday, but the world record set by streakers here last week
Students at the University of North Carolina at
Greensboro claimed Monday to have surpassed the record of
the 208 who streaked last week at Carolina. Some 258
students, including 75 coeds, romped for an hour and a half
in three separate nude dashes across the campus.
Between 1,000 and 1,500 students lined the streak route, as
a starting pistol officially started the streak at midnight.
"It was really like a carnival. The only thing missing was
the cotton candy," said Cliff Mitchell, a staff member of the
student newspaper and self-proclaimed coach of the school's
One streaker, an unannounced candidate for a campus
' office, made the streak calling for "complete openness in
government," said Mitchell,
At UNC, the first streak of the week occurred during the
noon class change, before a large audience in the pit Monday.
The lone streaker ran beside Greenlaw, through the pit, and
behind the Student Union toward Woollen Gym.
The second streaker ran through the pit around 3:30 p.m.
The streaker said he streaked to draw people to the pit to
listen to DTH editor candidate Cole Campbell, who was
charging the DTH with bias and was burning papers.
At North Carolina State University, Dean of Student
Affairs Banks C. Talley Jr. issued the administrations'! stand
on streaking: "There is no official position at all." He added, '
"I'm inclined to think it's a faddish thing that'll go the way of
other similar things."
Three out-of-state universities have also reported recent

The two principal routes. to Florida are 1-75, which runs
through Atlanta, and 1-95, which follows the coastline. Jane
Washington of the Carolina Motor Club in Raleigh
suggested the Atlanta route because most of those coming
from the northern states take 1-95 and are draining the
pumps along the way.
The gas problem in South Carolina used to be as bad as it
is here, but an emergency allocation of nine million gallons
has eased the shortage and most stations have reported
receiving their March allotment.
"South Carolina is on a voluntary even-odd distribution
system," Alice Graham of the Columbia AAA Auto Club,
said. "But that won't apply to out-of-state people. The
governor has asked that ' some stations stay open on
Sundays, but so far we haven't located any that do," she said.
The Highway Patrol said there were still lines for gas in the
cities and stations opened and closed at will with no regular
"We can't give any encouragement or say anything
positive, a spokesman for the Highway Patrol in Columbia
said. "Most owners open up and sell a certain number of
gallons and then close down for the day. If you need gas in
South Carolina, better get it early in the da$."
Jim Walls of the Georgia AAA said his state's gas supply
was far superior to that of either North or South Carolina.
"I'd take 1-75 even though it will take longer, because it has
a lot more gas than 1-95," Walls said. "You'll have no
problems while in Georgia, but once yoirpass Palm Beach
things will get rough as far as gas is concerned."
The Georgia State Police were less encouraging, saying
there was no way of telling how long the gas would last or
which stations would have gas.
"Travel during the daylight hours," George Moore,
Public Safety Officer said, "Late night travel is bad news and
never on a Sunday. Most stations are closed by 10 p.m." .
North Florida, according to the State Police in
Tallahassee, has plenty of gas and the March allocations
have been received.
"We have lines here, but only of three or four cars," M.W.
Saunders said. "Most stations open at 7 a.m. and are able to
stay open all day. The state received a 28 million-gallon
emergency allocation and then a 50 million-gallon increase
in the March allotment. Watch your tanks and watch your
Toni Scott of the Florida AAA said the best time to buy
gas was about 8:30 in the morning because most people have
gone to work and there are no lines.
"Fill-up before you get to central Florida," Scott said. "It's
hard to get gas there and what they've got is expensive."
The three southernmost counties of Florida, Broward,
Palm Beach, and Dade, are on an odd-even system, and
officials are saying the lines are getting shorter, but there still
is about a 30-minute wait, even with the March allocations.
Nat Pfriemmer of the Ft. Lauderdale Police said they
expect about 30,000 college students at the peak vacation
period. There is a $5 limit and gas averages 58 cents a gallon.
"Our allocations are based on the number of residents,"
Pfriemmer said. "While we have 153,000 people living here,
we always have about 300,000 in the area. So the shortage in
this area is understandable."
The Highway Patrol spokesman for the southern region
said there are no limits on the amount of gas you can buy on
the Florida Turnpike, and the stations are open se ven days a
week, 24 hours a day. He said emergency call boxes were set
up on the turnpike for those who ran out of fas, and the
Highway Patrol would do its best to get gas to those who
So now you're down in gasless Florida soaking rays, and
relaxing for a solid week, where are you going to find the gas
to get back? Who cares.

feel he could accomplish much in Suite C.
"If there are any issues worth pursuing,"
Schooley said,"Student Government should
take them by the balls and get them done. If
not, they're wasting a lot of time.
"That's why we were poking fun at all the
campus institutions," Schooley continued.
"Student Government, the DTH. the AWS,
the whole thing. We were making fun of
student apathy in general."
"I really believe there is a class struggle of
sorts here," he said. "It's kind of a
paternalistic bureaucracy making decisions
for an apathetic mass of students who really
have more power than they believe."
Although it was rumored other candidates
planned to contest the presidential election,
none indicated Monday they intended to
meet the Elections Board's midnight
deadline for contesting elections.
Lew Warren, who received 552 votes for
president in the general election, said
Monday he considered contesting the
presidential elections, but he did not plan to
try to meet the deadline.
Warren's grounds for a possible re
election include misplacement of campaign
posters. El Libre's use of a videotape
machine and possible stuffing of ballot
"Election procedures were lackadaisacal
as far as enforcement." Warren said.
He said elections Board officials failed to
remove posters within 50 feet of polling
places, as required by election law.
There were more ballots for some offices
than voters signing the polltenders' list at the
Morrison polling place. Warren said.
He said the ballot box may have been
stuffed, but left the possibility open of some
voters not signing the list.

Doak and Jones will not allow this
