Dianas latest combines
sultry ballads, disco jazz
Questionnaire respondees dislike quotas
In the Aug. 1 1 issue of Rolling Stone,
Diana Ross stated that she was
recording two albums one for making
love and one for dancing.
She was recording two albums
simultaneously so that she wouldn't
have to worry about recording while she
films The Wiz, her next movie. She
wasn't sure she didn't even care
which one Motown would release first.
Baby It's Me
Diana Ross
"Whatever the market looks like it's ripe
for," she said.
Baby It's Me, newly released on
Motown Records is supposedly her
"love-making" album. As usual she
covers a wide range of musical territory,
from smooth, easy ballads to some
potential disco. It makes you wonder
what her "dancing" album will contain.
This album marks Ross' first
collaboration with noted producer
Richard Perry. The collaboration
works. They've chosen songs from a
variety of writers, including Stevie
Wonder, Melissa Manchester and Bill
Withers, which show that Diana Ross is
a singer who can sing just about
She's at her best singing Wonder's
"Too Shy to Say" and Manchester's
"Confide in Me," both beautiful ballads,
but she seems equally comfortable with
Withers' "The Same Love That Made
Me Laugh," which is a harder driven
rhythm and blues sound. She does it all.
Somehow she seems to make them all
her own.
The closest thing to "heavy" disco on
the album is "Your Love Is So Good For '
Me," written by Ken Peterson. It's no
"Love Hangover," but it has an almost
irresistible beat, heavy synthesizing,
male background vocals and some of
Diana's sexiest sighs and screams.

One cut, "All Night Lover," is quite
reminiscent of her early days with the
Supremes. She calls it "the old, old
sound." It's a pleasant trip back to the
simplicity of "Baby Love" and a
reminder that it takes a "real superstar"
to hang around the top for 15 years.
Listening to the album will get the
point across.

Almost three-quarters of the UNC
students who responded to a Campus Y
Common Cause questionnaire oppose
quotas for minority admissions and support
gay rights.
Approximately 2,500 questionnaires were
distributed to students who voted in the
student fee referendum last month. About
2,100 were returned.
Seventy-three percent of students
questioned said they don't support quotas
for minority admissions into higher
education. Seventy-four percent favored
homosexuals and heterosexuals having the
same rights.
Fifty-eight percent, or 995 of the students
who answered the question, favored
elimination of the Honor Code "rat clause"
requiring students to report any Honor Code
violations they observe.
Of the 2,001 students evaluating Carter's
first year as president, 33 percent said he has
Officials support further bus service
With a convincing victory in the municipal
elections under their belts, supporters of bus
service in Carrboro are continuing their
efforts to expand the transportation system
there, according to Alderman Doug Sharer.
"We are presently negotiating to expand
the bus service to include evening and

Saturday service, and expand day service
during peak hours," Sharer said. "We are in
the process of trying to get Chapel Hill to
give additional funds for the expanded
Sharer said the Transportation
Committee was scheduled to meet with
Chapel Hill Town Manager Kurt Jenne early
this week.
"I couldn't say how much the expanded
service will cost," Sharer said. "It depends on
which options are possible. We would like to
see the University ccntribute. We will be
setting up a meeting with them in the near
Target date for the additional service is
Jan. 10.
The attempts to increase Carrboro service
are based on demand, Sharer said.
"We have more early afternoon demand
than we anticipated," Sharer said. "In the
evening, students have late classes and are
not able to catch the last bus. Students may
want to go to the library at night, and there
are no buses available."
Buses presently run five days a week, from
6:45 a.m. until 6 p.m.
"We average from about 1,400 to 1,450
riders per day," Sharer said. "The C route is

done a good job. Twenty-seven percent said
his work has been fair; 23 percent, average;
1 1 percent, poor; and 5 percent, very good.
Gov. Jim Hunt was rated by 1,383
students. Thirty percent ranked his work as
average; 26 percent, fair; 24 percent, good;
16 percent, poor; and 4 percent, very good.
Forty-eight percent, or 892 students, said
the United States should not change the
amount of economic and military aid it gives
Israel. Less aid was favored by 39 percent,
more aid by 13 percent.
Sixty-nine percent of the students
questioned supported economic sanctions
against South Africa as a means of
expressing disapproval of that country's
apartheid policy. i i y
Ratification of the Panama Canal treaty
was favored by 64 percent pfthqsesuryeyed.
In the student fee distribution, question,
students were asked to divide 900 pennies
among seven campus organizations. The
distribution was as follows: ,l .' ' ' 1
Daily Tar Heel, $3,756.41 '
Carolina Union, $3,614.47.
Student Government operations,
including executive, judicial and legislative
'branches, and the Student Legal Service,
Yackety Yack, $2,037.20.
Other media, including WXYC,
Carolina Quarterly, and Cellar Door,
Sports Club Council, including the
Outing Club, Sailing Club, Club Football,
Club Volleyball and UNC Skydiving Club,
Special interest groups, including the
Black Student Movement, Carolina Gay
Association, Carolina Indian Circle and
Association for Women Students, $ 1 ,406.69.
According to David Weynand, UNC
Common Cause chairperson, "Common
Cause is a citizens lobby. It's composed of
citizens who are concerned about how
government works, how it responds to
"Each year the questions tackle issues of
campus concern," explained Mark Lazenby,
a Common Cause member.
"The questions are designed to guage the
feelings of students who were willing to vote
on popular issues. It's absolutely for the
benefit of the students who voted," he said.
R ichard Cramer, an associate professor of
sociology, warned against over
interpretating the results of the
questionnaire because of the group of
students questioned. "What this is, is the
people who voted in the referendum, the
people who are interested in Student
Government," he explained. "They're a
select kind of person, not just the average
Lazenby agreed that the questionnaire
shouldn't be confused with a survey because
the students questioned weren't randomly
selected, and the questions weren't
scientifically worded.
"Some of the wording was poorly stated,"
Cramer said. "The wording of a question
certainly makes a difference.
"If there's wording of the sort, 'Do you
think there should be more black students at
UNC?' I think you would have gotten a much
different answer. . . although we don't know
how representative the sample of students is.
Any wording will tend to bias the results
For example, 75 percent of the students
questioned don't support quotas for
minority admissions, but 69 percent strongly
supported South Africa. "Therefore, the
majority isn't hostile to black people,"
Cramer said.

The final version of a policy permitting
students to have lofts in residence hall rooms
was approved recently by the Office of
Student Affairs, according to Russell Perry,
assistant director of housing.
The policy, which allows a student to
construct an elevated bed by signing a permit
form and submitting it to his residence
director, gained final approval in mid
November, Perry said.
A special committee composed of students
and Perry had approved the policy in
October. Perry was chairperson of the loft
The permit form includes a clause
releasing the Department of Housing and
the University from any liability for an
accident a student might suffer because of his
After signing and submitting the permit to
the residence director,, the student would
have two weeks to build his loft.
The loft then would be inspected by
University maintanence supervisors. If
inspection showed the structure to be unsafe,
it would have to be removed.
All 'lofts1 also must be painted with fire
retardant paint and have a permanently
fixed ladder attached to the bed. No cooking
or heating utensils, candles or flammable
material, such as parachute silk, are allowed
on, above or below the structure.
The policy also states that failure to
comply with any or all sections of the loft
policy may result in the student losing his
residence hall contract with "no refund of
rent paid or owed."
Until the loft policy was approved this
year, elevated beds were illegal, although
many students built the beds anyway.
