WXYC power disputes result in resignations
By BERN1E RANSBOTTOM
Two of the leaders of WXYC's push for
autonomy from the Media Board resigned their
positions at the station effective Thursday, citing
lack of staff support for their actions as the cause.
Mike Hyman, former program director, and
David Madison, former business manager,
submitted their resignations to Station Manager
Don Moore Wednesday night. The move was
unexpected by the station, Moore said.
The letter of resignation made no mention of
intent on the parte of Madison and Hyman to
resign their positions on the executive board of
Student Educational Broadcasting (SEB), Moore

Hyman and Madison could not be reached
Thursday for comment on the resignations.
SEB is the incorporated body governing the
operation of the station. I he group was formally
recognized by the Campus Governinv Council
(CGC) in a special resolution Tuesday.
"Up until the point of today's (Thursday's)
paper. Madison and Mike have been speaking for
the station." Moore said. "Personnel had kept
their mouths shut and let them handle it because
they (Madison and Hyman) knew more about the
politics. None of us are politicians; all we knew is
radio and brute force."
Moore said many members of the station staff
were discontented with Madison's handling of the
public relations of the conflict.

"It was kind of obvious to the stall thai
Madison was trying to smear some members (of
the Media Board)." Moore said. But he said the
staff had agreed to let Madison and Hyman
represent the station and therefore decided not to
get more actively involved in the conflict.
. A letter published in Thursday's Daily Tar Heel
and written by WXYC Music Director David
Speigner may have partially prompted the
resignation. Moore said. Speigner submitted the
letter without first obtaining Madison and
flyman's approval of it. and they were unaware ol
its contents until it was published.
"lie wrote it not as WXYC music director."
Moore said, "but as a concerned student. "
I lie letter contained an explanation o! win the
stall considered taking the station oil the air the

We (some members of the WXYC staff) looked
at the letter and we basically agreed with what hi
had to say." Moore said.
Moore said the staff decided the letter was the
only comment it w ished to make on the conflict
wilh the Media Board. "We were going to let the
Media Board and the CGC take care of it and we
were going to get back to running a radio station."
" Then last night I come in and M ike and Da id
have their offices spotless and I have a letter ol
resignation saving the entire stall had opposed
their move, which was not so."
When asked il he planned to fill the two
positions soon. Moore said that nothing definite
had been decided as set.
"I he business manager position is very easily
replaceable." Moore said. "I he entire nature ol

Student Government treasury laws anyone
with any sense can do the job.
"Program director is another thing entirely.
Basically he is one ol the three most important
people at the station.
"We're going to look lor a program director. As
lor having a program director of the caliber ol
Mike Hyman. we many not find one. Until we
have a program director we've broken the job
down among lour people."

"WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?
Psalms 2:1 and Acts 425
The Reformation ol the 16th Century, developed and con
ducted by Martin Luther and the extraordinary men ol his
time, WAS A WONDERFUL EVENT, which, at every step ol
Its progress, bears upon It the Imprint ol The Divine Hand,
Says Carlyle ot Luther: "His career marks the beginning ol
the present epoch, lor It Is sale to say that every man In
western Europe and America Is leading lile today from what
he would have led, and Is another person altogether Irom
what he would have been, had Martin Luther not lived." H ad I
lived In his day and generation, I certainly hope I would have
been one ol his supporters with time, money and prayers.
The great religious movement ot the 17th Century, which
we call the Puritan Reformation will ever stand as one ol the
great landmarks ol history, far reaching In Its Influence, and
permanent as the truth and the Church ol God. Had I lived In
these times I certainly hope I would have been one ol Its sup
porters with my prayers, and time, and money.
The great movement ol the 18th Century, which wt have
denominated theWesleyanRelormatlon was another olTHE
FEW LEADING EVENTS OF A KINDRED CHARACTER,
WHICH EVER AND ANON AT GREAT INTERVALS,
REVOLUTIONIZE SOCIETY AND BLESS THE WORLD."
H ad I lived In Wesley's day, I certainly hope I would have sup
ported his work with prayers, time, and money.
Concerning the Christian, his money, and his giving, we
now present some ol John Wesley's testimony: WhenWesley
considered the prodigious Increase ot The Methodist
Society "Irom two or three poor people to hundreds, to
thousands, to myriads, he alllrmed such an event, con
sidered In all Its circumstances, had not been seen upon the
earth since the time St. John went to Abraham's bosom. B ut
he perceived where the principle ol decay was to be lound.
The real essence ol Methodism Is holiness ol heart and lite,
and II ever these essentials should evaporate, what remains
will be dung and dress. He said riches were the great enemy
of, and danger to these essentials: "Wherever riches have In
creased, the essence ol religion has decreased in the same
proportion." However, true religion must necessarily
produce Industry, frugality, and these cannot but produce
riches. But as riches Increase so will pride, anger, and love ol
the world In all its branches, the desire ol the llesh, the desire
ol the eyes, and pride ol life." Is there no way to prevent this
this continual decay ol pure religion? We ought not to
prevent people Irom being Irugal and diligent. We must ex
hort all Christians to gain all they can, to save all they can;
that Is, In ellect to grow rich. What way, then, can we take,
that our money may not sink us to the nethermost hell?
There Is one way, and there Is no other under heaven. If those
who gain all they can, and save all they can will likewise give
ail they can, then the more they gain the more will they grow
In peace, and the more treasure will they lay up In heaven
." "I defy all men upon the earth, yea, all the angels In heaven,
to llnd any other way ol extracting the poison Irom riches!"
"BUT SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND HIS
RIGHTEOUSNESS; AND ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE
ADDED UNTO YOU." Matthew 6:33. Matthew 7:15 says:
"BEWARE OF FALSE PROPHETS, WHICH COME TO YOU
L IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING, BUT INWARDLY THEY ARE
RAVENING WOLVES." Should we not beware lest we give
our money to build up apostacy, and unbeliel In the God ol
