Liberal groups push CGC candidates;
conservatives fail to mount campaigns
By CHARLES ELLMAKER
The 65th Session of the Campus Governing Council will proba
bly be more liberal, leaders of both conservative and liberal fac
tions at UNC agree.
The changes will come partly because of a concerted effort by
several liberal groups to support candidates which they say have a
more "open-minded" attitude toward funding programs address
ing controversial issues.
And unlike last year, conservative groups have made no at
tempt to openly support candidates with conservative leanings. v
"There was no effort by conservatives to put up conservative
people as candidates this year," said Phil Painter, a leading con
servative member of the CGC. Last year, Painter organized a
group of conservative candidates to run for the CGC, which
resulted in a large conservative bloc on this year's council.
Painter said no effort was made because most of those who
promoted candidates last year were now seniors.
"We're all seniors and in the search for jobs and grad schools,"
UNC College Republicans President Joe Trostel said his orga
nization also was not promoting conservative candidates for
But the more liberal student organizations are actively support
ing candidates in hopes that their groups will be better received by
the new council.

person of the Association of Women Students, said she had pro

with 74-70 win Saturday
By ROBYN NORWOOD
Just two weeks ago, fifth-ranked Maryland drubbed North
Carolina 91-77 in College Park. Saturday the Terps rolled into
Carmichael Auditorium planning a repeat performance.
They came close. But the UNC women's basketball team hand
ed the Terps their second loss of the season, 74-70. The Maryland
team UNC beat didn't even Tesemble the club of two weeks ago.
. Who's to say where the focal point of Maryland's schizo
phrenia lay? Senior guard Debbie Lyde went AWOL, taking her
1 1 .3 average along for the ride, and leaving behind her lowest out
put of the season four points. Asked to impart some bit of in
sight into Lytle's performance, Maryland coach Chris Weller
responded with a blank, "I don't know."
"Physically, we're just an average team," Weller said. "Sowe
have to have a mental edge." But early on, Maryland suffered
some offensive confusion. Several minutes into the game, Lytle
stood on the left wing. Indeed, most of the Maryland team was on
the left wing. It took shouting and a waving of arms, all while
dribbling the basketball, to get things straight.
Late in the game, with UNC up by a handful and the seconds
going fast, it happened again. " We had people on the court who
were told to foul and didn't foul," said Weller. "That was ir
ritating." But things didn't go all bad for Maryland. Rocky Mount native
Marcia Richardson tossed in 21 points on the strength of 77 per
cent shooting from the field, and a good number of those shots
splashed through the net from outside the blue line. In fact, the
Terps as a team shot a sizzling 68 percent in the second half, and
managed 58 percent for the game.
The problem? Rebounding. North Carolina took that score
32-25. Partly because of that edge, and partly because the Terps
didn't do their usual job of creating offense out of defense, they
only attempted 55 shots all day. That figure effectively nullified
their high percentage.
Credit the rebounding gap to North Carolina's Henrietta
Walls, Tresa Brown and Kathy Crawford. Those three combined
had only one less rebound than the entire Maryland club. Walls
came down in possession 11 times, and Crawford cleared the
boards with such vengeance that few Terps dared to challenge
her. Of the ones that did, two came away saddled with fouls.
Crawford probably played more characteristically than anyone
on the floor, scoring 10 of the 24 points that notched a 12-point
North Carolina lead, the biggest of the game, with 7:28 to go in
the first half. .
But the biggest sequence of the game came when Maryland
took a look at the lineup UNC had on the floor, decided they
could press it, and did. Three steals, three baskets, six straight
points. UNC coach Jennifer Alley took a timeout.
"I told them we were telegraphing our passes. I told them to

But the game wasn't anywhere close to over. Maryland took
its first lead of the day, 57-56, with 10:40 to play off a Jasmina
Perazic shot. The teams volleyed the lead for six minutes before
Pam Leake popped a short jumper to take it for keeps.
After the dust had cleared, and UNC had ambushed the league
leading Terps to move into a second-place ACC tie with them,
Alley stood off to the side.
Her team's best effort of the year?
"I don't think so," she said. But it had to have been close.
tudent fee increase, divestment
among issues on ballot Tuesday
By SCOTT BOLEJACK
When students go to the polls on Tues
day, they will not only choose campus of
ficers, but will decide the fate of four
referendums as well.
Students will decide if they want a $ 1 .25
per semester increase in the Student Activi
ty Fee. A second referendum will add a
section to the constitution prohibiting the
Campus Governing Council from appro
priating student fees "to programs, ser
vices or events of a political or religious
A third referendum would clarify a part
of the constitution that deals with the
president's power over student initiatives,
while the last referendum asks the UNC
Board of Trustees to divest endowment
funds currently invested in companies with
interests in South Africa.
One of the most debated referendums
has been the proposed increase in the Stu
dent Activity Fee. A failure by the CGC to
meet a quorum effectively killed the
referendum's place on the ballot two
weeks ago and threatened to do so again in
a special meeting last Wednesday. Only a
last-minute apperance by CGC member
Dennis Bartels (District 10) got the referen
dum on the ballot.
Student Body President Mike Vanden
bergh said Sunday that he had mixed feel
ings about a fee increase.
"There are certainly a lot of groups that
can make good use of an increase in the
Student Activity Fee," he said. "At the
same time I think that the funds we have
can be put to better use." ;
Funds in the General Reserve, which
currently amount to $158,000, could be
put to better use, Vandenbergh said.
"Even if we do spend $100,000 on the
spring concert, there still remains a sizable
sum to allocate to groups," he said.
But CGC Rules and Judiciary Commit
tee Chairman Phil Painter (District 19),
who broke the quorum at last week's
special meeting, said General Reserve
funds should be used before an increase in
the Student Activity Fee is considered.
"Right now we have a $160,000 surplus
of mandatory Student Activity Fees,"
Painter said. "With that $160,000 surplus
we should be asking for a decrease in the
Until that reserve is spent, Painter said
students should not advocate a fee in

nature was designed to give campus
organizations going through the CGC
budgeting system an appeals process

If passed, the article would become a
part of the Student Constitution, J.B.
Kelly, chief justice of the Student Supreme
Court, said. Currently, the prohibition

chairmen, Vandenbergh said.
"A student organization could (now)
challenge the legality of that law," Kelly
said. "If it becomes part of the Constitu
tion, a group could not challenge it. They
could challenge only whether they are a
political or religious group."

IFC-Panhell endorse Monroe, DeRochi, M
The Panhellenic Executive Council and the In-
terfraternity executive committee Sunday jointly
endorsed Kevin Monroe for Student Body presi
dent, Kerry DeRochi for Daily Tar Heel editor,
Henry Miles for Residence Hall Association presi
dent and Padraic Baxter for the Carolina Athletic
"We felt that both candidates for the student
body'president race were very well qualified, but
Kevin was flexible, dynamic and more responsive
to the students," Burnet Carlisle, Panhellenic
Council president said.
DeRochi was selected because of her "experi
ence and because she seemed very professional," ..
"Good concrete ideas and programming" were
Baxter's strong points, while Miles was chosen for
his organization and speaking approach, she said.
The raising of the drinking age and enforcement
of new alcohol laws were key issues at the IFC
If the drinking age is raised, Student Govern
ment and the new student body president must
work with the Chapel Hill Town Council to keep
students from being arrested and to inform them
of the laws, student body presidential candidate
Jon Reckford said. He said that his experience on
the Student Legal Services Advisory Board would
prove helpful with that.
- "Student Government must publicize it (the
change in laws) though students probably can't
stop drinking if it is passed," he said.
Monroe agreed, adding that Student Govern
ment should investigate what would happen to stu
dents caught drinking, exactly who would be ar
rested and what students could be arrested for.
Minors at fraternity parties which serve alcoholic
beverages are also a problem, the student body
presidential candidates agreed.
"I don't think there's a fraternity on campus
that wants underage people at its parties because
they know the consequences," Monroe said. Stu
dent Government should art as an instrument in
helping communicate these ideas, he added.
Reckford said the town's main concern centered
on those too young to be drinking, not just harass
ment of college students.
"The town doesn't care that we have 18-year-old
college students drinking (now) what they
care about is that over Thanksgiving a 14-year-old
girl was found with a blood alcohol level of .23,
throwing up at a fraternity," Reckford said.
The Academic Advising Program sponsored by
Student Government was also discussed at the
IFC-Panhell forum. Monroe supported centraliz
ing the program, perhaps in the Carolina Union,
while Reckford supporting expanding it.
Compiled by staff writers Joseph Berryhill, Scott
Bole jack and Liz Lucas.
Although the program is now centered on the
freshmen and sophomores in dormitories,
Reckford said he saw no reason the program could
not be expanded "once it is on its feet" to the
fraternity and sorority houses.
DTH editorial candidate Kerry DeRochi said she
would try to get the paper out of the Carolina
"To do this I am proposing a weekly series of
stories on student organizations," DeRochi said.
"These stories would tell what's available and how
to get involved. This information is not available
anywhere else on campus."
A monthly writing seminar to critique the DTH
and practice writing skills and a permanent
reporter to cover the N.C. State Legislature are
two more of DeRochi's proposals to improve the
Since there has not been an increase in the Stu
dent Activity Fee in six years and the production
costs of the DTH have more than doubled since
then, DeRochi said she favored the proposed in
crease of $1.25 per semester.
John Aitschuler, also a candidate for DTH
editor, did not attend the forum.
RHA presidential candidates Mark Dalton and
Henry Miles discussed the upcoming $100 manda
tory meal plan for on-campus residents. The third
candidate, Frank Winstead, did not attend the
Dalton proposed that Greeks who live in resi
dence halls should be exempt from the required
"If you're in a (fraternity or sorority) house,
you shouldn't have to buy a meal plan if you don't
want it," he said.
Miles said that RHA could negotiate the transfer
of meal plans for all residents, including Greeks.
"I'm proposing that RHA act as a liaison be
tween people who want to buy or sell food plans,"
Miles said. "I think it will work very well."
