Students venturing into the Carolina Union or
the Y -Court for a study break this weekend not
only escaped the library, but found themselves
transported into one of several worlds. The Great
Hall housed about SO Appalachian craftsmen and
their wares, while the Y-building offered
international specialties. Upstairs at the Carolina
U nion, students eating G reek baklava and sipping
Russian tea were distracted by belly dancers and
Cultural schizophrenia? No: the YM-YWCA's
International and Appalachian Handicrafts
The bazaar, which ran Friday through
Sunday, is the major fund-raising event for the
Campus Y. Much of the holiday shopping is done
in th Appalachian section, where craftsmen from
five states pay the Y 20 percent of the profits.
Sounds of Christmas music were muffled by the
incessant beating of the Aztec tongue drums being
demonstrated by members of the Idle Hands Craft
Alliance. Although the drums are true musical
instruments, they were bought mainly as
therapeutic toys, according to Idle Hands Craft
Alliance member Rina Boodman.
Since H ands had sold all of its $2 1 "toys" by late
Saturday afternoon, Boodman called the bazaar a
great buying show. "Sales are great; craftspeople
at other shows say they'd give their eye teeth to get
in this one," she said.
Not all the craftsmen were satisfied with their
sales. Some blamed the bizarre nature of their
work or high prices. Shirley McConahay's $25
ghoulish jute face mask did not suit as the stocking
stuffers many shoppers were seeking, nor was
there much demand for her $350 woven sculpture
"Four Faces in Search of a Mountain." Her
husband, Jim McConahay, said that her work
sells better at art galleries.
One metal sculptor conducted a smalt
experiment to see if shoppers were considering her
price tags. She slashed out the price of one
sculpture and wrote "FREE" below it, planning to
Attractions board proposal
defeated by Union directors
By ED WILLIAMS
The Carolina Union Board of Directors
Thursday defeated a proposal to establish a board
outside the U nion that would work solely to bring
big-name entertainment to campus.
The proposal for the major attractions board
was voted down minutes after Carolyn Jack,
creator of the proposal, asked that the proposal be
withdrawn from consideration.
Because Jack is not a member of the Board of
Directors she could not legally withdraw the
proposal, and the directors voted on it. No one
voted in favor of the proposal, and about a half
dozen negative votes were cast.
Eric Locher, Union president, agreed to look
into the possibility of forming an ad hoc major
attractions committee "under the auspices of the
Activities Board" of the Union.
Jack's proposal would have established a hoarj

If UNC officials could assign students to the

one of the UNC system's top administrators.

the number of black freshmen and transfer

campuses because "we don't have Ihe authority lo

CGC to elect new speaker,
consi der funding requests
By HOWARD TROXLER
The Campus Governing Council will elect
a new speaker, hear requests lor more money
and consider changes in the campus election
laws at its final meeting of the semester at 8
p.m. today in Room 213 of the Carolina
Speaker Gordon Curcton presented his
resignation to the council at a meeting Nov.
22. The council must now elect from its ranks
a new speaker to serve until the spring
The leading candidates for the speaker's
seat arc Bob Long, chairperson of the
Student Affairs Committee and
representative from the Lower Quad and
Cobb, and Chip Cox, representative from
the Upper Quad and Henderson Residence
College and chairperson of the Rules and
t he election is "an amicable contest."
according to both candidates.
"There arc a lot of big issues left in this
term." Long said Sunday. "The Honor
Code, for instance there may be conflict
said, "and obviously, we would fall short."
Ho said one of t'ie reasons the board could not
attain the HEW goal is a stabiliation of general
enrollment figures. He said yearly enrollment is
not grow ing as it did in the laic "60s and early '7(K.
hut rather is leveling off.
"We want to increase black enrollment, but the
criteria say we must make a commitment to the
150 percent goal." Dawson said. "We weren't
being asked if this w as a good idea, we were told to
commit ourselves to a goal we're already far short
UNC officials also say the 1 50 percent goal is an
inadequate measuring device. "Wc still believe
that the best measure of integration is the
distribution of total enrollment, not just
measuring freshmen or first-time transfer students
like HEW does in its criteria." Dawson
For that reason, the UNC desegregation plan
submitted earlier this year adopts a goal to
increase the proportion of all black students at
historically white campuses.
Specifically, the UNC plan purports to increase
the percentage of black students in ihe UNC
system attending historically white schools horn
its present 2! percent lo 2 percent by IW2.
Of this amount, one-third automatically goes to
the Carolina Union and one-sixth to the buih tar
Heel. The remainder w ill be distributed by the
CGC to the various student organizations.
Although there has been no official support ol a
lee increase from the University, officials have
postponed the billing date lor tuition and fees until
alter the Board ol Governors meets. II the board
approves the increase today, the hike would go
into eliccl neu semester.
I hen Ford, who had been in a minor
shooting slump, ran off 17 of his 24
second-half points. II of them from the
free throw line (12 attempts). He
finished the game with 30 points while
O'Koren had 16 and Wood 12.
"1 thought it was going to be rough
going when I looked over at the Duke
pep band and saw some signs saying'Go
Pack.' " Dean Smith said after the State
game. "The way we came back from a
poor first half shooting showed me a lot
about this team."
Carolina received good play from its
reserves in t he tough tournament games,
a good indication of the depth. Wood
played 25 minutes against State,
including during the critical period
when the team was in the delay game.
John Virgil played 14 minutes, and Wolf
played 1 5. The reserves combined for 25
points against State.
State shot into the finals with a tie
breaking 16-foot shot by freshman
Kenny Matthews, as time ran out to give
the Pack a 79-77 opening-round win
against Wake. State led the entire
second half after leading by one at the
half. 41-40. Griffin tied the game at 77
77 with 10 seconds left, and overtime
looked imminent. State didn't didn't call
a timeout but threw the ball in, and
Matthews tossed his shot up with a
prayer as the light came on behind the
between what the council wants to do and
w hat the Faculty Council wants to do. It may
take some work toironoutthedifferences."
Long said other things confronting the
CGC are possible budgetary hearing reforms
and the possibility of having to stay in office
an extra four weeks if changes in the election
laws are approved.
Cox said he agrees with Long's assessment
of the work CGC has ahead, but he said his
election to the speaker's seat would not be
clouded with poltical issues. Cox is a senior
and does not plan to run for a CGC seat next
"I have no personal interests for being
speaker, because I'm graduating in the
spring." Cox said.
Both Long and Cox said each new CGC
should have the privilege of electing its own
speaker rather than working with one elected
by the previous CGC.
The Council also will hear funding
requests of $1,200 from the Student Bar
Association for carpeting the law school
lounge and $300 for funding a proposed
major declaration period in the spring.
The major declaration period would be a
Past efforts to desegregate
UNC officials say increasing black enrollments
within this framework always has been a goal of
the U niversity system, and they say the goal was a
part of the 1974 UNC desegregation plan.which
was approved by HEW that same year.
Dawson, who helped UNC President William
C. Friday write the 1977 desegregation plan. said.
"I'art of the problem is HEW changing signals on
us. All of a sudden, what was good in 1974 is not
good in 1977." '
U'N'C's 1974 plan proposed lo increase the
proportion of all black students enrolled in the
University that were attending historically white
institutions from its then IK percent level to 23
percent by 1976. I hat goal was met. UNC officials
The 1974 plan also contained a proposal to
siudy the system's five historically black
institutions lor deficiencies. That study was
completed, and this year ihe board received funds
from the General Assembly to correct those
deficiencies. Dawson said.
But one of the complaints from federal officials
is lhat UNC has not done enough in the past to
correct the racially dual structure of the system.
UNCoflicialssay a concentrated ellort has been
made to desegregate ihe system since the creation
ol the Board ol Governors in 1972. To illustrate
this point, the UNC will issue a report today
summing up its past ellorts at desegregation.
