About one-third of the UNC students turned out
for Tuesday's campus elections, constituting a relative
ly high turnout, Elections Board Chairman Stan Evans
said Tuesday afternoon.
While students gave different reasons for casting
their, votes, they generally agreed that the new voting
procedure was satisfactory.
Mary Pat Corrigan, a junior from Jacksonville, 3
FTa., professed a civil reason for voting. "If you don't
vote, who's going to vote?" she said. "You have to
put your 2 cents in."
Corrigan said she voted for Monroe for student
body president because he "combines the experience
of being involved in Student Government with the
awareness that students need to be involved."
Sandra Gentry, a sophomore from King, said voting
was a privilege. "I might as well use it," she added.
Philip Anderson, a junior from Murphy, said he
voted to state his opinion. 1
"I just thought I'd have a say in what was going
on," he said.
Anderson said he voted for Reckford because "he ,
sounded appropriate for the office."

decide whether to hold another student

Reckford's complaint. The board had
not made a decision by press time.
The voting discrepency is significant
"enough to completely change the elec

students who did not have their IDs

JERUSALEM An Israeli judicial
commission on the Beirut massacre called
for the ouster of Defense Minister Ariel
Sharon on Tuesday, accusing him of
"blunders" that set the stage for the
slaughter of Palestinians.
The panel's explosive report, which also
rebuked Prime Minister Menachem Begin,
rocked Israel's political structure and
touched off speculation about early elec
tions at a time when U.S. pressure is
mounting for Israeli concessions toward a
Middle East peace.
Begin and his Cabinet met for two
hours Tuesday without a decision on
Sharon's status, and scheduled another
meeting for today.
The three-man commission of inquiry
said Israeli leaders should have foreseen
that allowing Lebanese militiamen into
two Beirut refugee camps last September
was an invitation to tragedy.
Hundreds of Palestinians were slain by
the militiamen. An official Lebanese in-"
vestigation has yet to bring any of the
killers to justice.
"No prophetic powers were required to
know that concrete danger of .acts of
slaughter existed," said the commission
report. ' ,
It also called for the resignation of the
head of Israel's military intelligence and
condemned the military chief of staff. It
accused Begin of "indifference" to the
threat of a massacre in Beirut, but recom
mended no action against him.
Israel radio reported that Sharon was
refusing to quit or accept another Cabinet ;
post. But a Cabinet source said almost sail
the 20 ministers, including Sharon,,
favored endorsing the findings.
The chairman of Begin's coalition,
Avraham Shapira, said after meeting with
Begin that the prime minister would not
demand Sharon's resignation.

. . . town won't get $750,000 in grants
By JOHN CONWAY
Mayor Joe Nassif said Monday night that he would
conduct a personal investigation to find out why the state
rejected the town's application for $750,000 in community
Town Manager David Taylor told the Chapel Hill
Town Council on Jan. 24 that the town's application for
state funds was rejected because the Chapel Hill Housing
Authority had failed to spend 35 percent of the 1981-82
Nassif defended the housing authority Monday night at
a town council work session on the management audit
presented to the council.
A recent management audit, prepared by McManis
Associates of Washington, D.C., examined the operations
and management of the town government and housing
authority. The audit cited serious management problems
stemming from reduced federal funding and resignation
of the authority's director.
"Yes, we have problems today (in the housing authori
ty),' Nassif said. "But they can be resolved. Chapel Hill
has a good housing plan. I wish for it to continue."
Nassif missed the Jan. 24 meeting, when council
members discussed the rejection of the town's application
lor state tunds. Nassif said he would contact Joseph
Grimsley, secretary of the N.C. Department of Natural
Resources and Community Development, to ask why the
council's application was rejected. ' .
"They (CHHA) have been accused and I don't think
that's fair," Nassif said.
Town Council member Winston Broadfoot has been
critical of the CHHA operations for some time. He said
the CHHA should become totally hidependent of the
Broadfoot questioned a recommendation in the
management audit that the town explore ways in which it
might provide support and assistance to the CHHA.
Broadfoot said the CHHA should remain financially in
dependent from the town. .
The council asked Taylor to investigate NRCD's rejec
tion of the funds. Taylor's report should be ready by
Thursday, Broadfoot said.
In other discussion, Allan Rusten, director of public ad
ministration for McManis Associates, said the manage
ment audit was generally favorable. There were only two
departments, police and fire, that faid serious manage
ment and operational problems, he sziid.
"The report is very positive," Nasaf said. "Problems
develop in the town and the report gives a starting point
for making those adjustments," he said.' . ;,' ,
