Tears of joy and dejection were shed
Monday as lotteries were held for on
"I feel relieved, safe; I have a place to
go now," said Kathy Kramer, a
sophomore from Hickory, N.C., whose
name was drawn for Spencer dor
mitory. "I'm surprised; it's just sinking
in. The odds weren't so bad this year,"
About 850 UNC students applying
for space in University housing will be
closed out this year, down from about
1,200 last year, said Collin Rustin,
associated director for housing con
tracts. About 2,800 spaces were assign
ed during the Monday drawings.
A major reason for the decline in the
closeout figure is a change in policy by
the University housing department,
Rustin said. One hundred and fifty
spaces have been added to the number
of available spaces to allow for the 200
to 300 that cancel each year, he said.
"It's an advantage to the students,"
Rustin said. It reduces anxiety for those
who would otherwise be put on a
waiting list, and it enables a greater
number of students to stay where they
are if they so desire, according to
Howie Sauls, a junior from Kinston,
said he felt "great" after hearing he
would be allowed back into a dorm next
"yearT Had "tie not gotten a room, he
would have "gone hunting," he said.
"We're really glad because we didn't
want to go apartment hunting for one
year," said Kellie Sopher, a junior from
Others weren't fortunate in the lot
tery and will either choose to put their
name on the waiting list or will go look
ing for off-campus housing.
"I'll probably look for an apartment
or Granville (Towers)," said Elisabeth
Kerr, a sophomore.
"What do I do now? asked Laura
Reep, a sophomore from Lincolnton.
"Do I go" for Granville or an apart
ment?" Gary Chesson, a freshman from
Durham, said he would try to get back
on campus by way of a waiting list.
"I'll get on a waiting list, get another
dorm," he said. "Being in Carr dorm
was so convenient last year; I'd like to
stay on campus if I could."
A drawing for positions on the
waiting list will be held Wednesday for
those who closed out but still want to
try for on-campus housing.

Joint dorm enhancement policy proposed
By JANET OLSON
The University housing department and the Residence
Hall Association are discussing a proposal to change the
allocation of the dormitory enhancement fund.
Currently, $2 of each resident's room rent goes to an
enhancement fund to be used in the resident's dor
mitory. The enhancement proposal is to contribute 50
cents to 75 cents of the $2 to an all-campus enhancement
fund. This would generate a $3,400-$5,100 all-campus
The proposal also includes promoting long-range
enhancement planning, providing monthly statements of
the account balance, training enhancement officers and
promoting a cooperative approach to enhancement bet
ween the area directors, dorm governors and floor
The proposal is in response to concerns raised by both
the housing department and RHA, said Allan Calarco,
assistant director of housing for training and program
ming. Both are concerned that funds are not being used
to truly enhance the dorms, he said.
"If money spent is truly an ennancement, it should in
some way better the environment," Calarco said.
Another problem is that enhancement officers tend to
think more in terms of short-term rather than long-term
spending, Calaro said.
Mark Stafford, RHA president, said funds often
weren't used for large projects that take more than one
year to complete.
"The Ehringhaus Green Room, for example, was
created over a period of years," Stafford said. "That's
the kind of thing we want to bring back."
Along with this desire to encourage long-term
enhancement, however, is the need to improve the
distribution of funds, Calarco said. A major concern
raised in the enhancement proposal is that small, north
Winstead seeks 'DTH' editor's post
campus dorms currently cannot undertake enhancement
projects because they receive small funds.
"With only $200-$400, there's not a lot of enhance
ment you can do," Calarco said.
The proposal would set up a committee, composed of
three area directors and three RHA governors, to
oversee the all-campus enhancement fund. Dormitories
needing money would petition the committee for part of
the all-campus fund, Calarco said.
The committee would decide which buildings were the
most needy, Calarco said, and would be accountable for
their decision to the area directors across campus.
But South Campus residents have expressed concern
over the proposal, Shannon Friend, Ehringhaus gover
nor, said. r

Frank Winstead, a junior political
science and geography major from Rocky
Mount, has declared, his candidacy for
Daily Tar Heel editor.
"The DTH s responsibility is to be an
accurate source of information and not
the means for perpetuating a dynasty of
individuals with characteristics common
to censors," Winstead said. "I believe I
can be an effective DTH editor because I
have been able to bring to the public's at
tention the overwhelming bias of the cur
rent DTH editor and the editorial staff.
"I will not use the paper for my own
personal enrichment or for the enrich
ment of those members of my staff of
whom I am fond," he said.
Winstead said he would do away with
the DTH writing test because of its
restrictive nature. "It keeps good people
out," he said. Winstead proposed open
ing the DTH to all students. This way, he
said, "It would truly be a student
Winstead said he would also eliminate
all editorials written by himself as editor
and his editorial staff. "We would open
the back page to letters and columns from
the general student body since, in essence,
they are the publishers and should
therefore maintain control of the editorial
policy of their own paper," he saich
"We want to eliminate the feeling that
the views expressed on the left-hand side
of the back page are the views of the en
tire student body; when in reality they are
the views of a miniscule portion of the
student population," he said.
Winstead said he would seek a referen
dum to determine whether the DTH
should continue to receive a guaranteed
percent of student fees or whether their
funding should be controlled by the Cam
pus Governing Council, "as it is with
most other campus organizations."
Wimtead addressed a heretofore
unheard issue: what to do with the comic
strip Doonesbury when it returns in
September. "We will make the space and
finances available for the return of
Doonesbury, no matter how many park
ing stickers or DTH parties we have to
give up," he said. "I will even reject the

Jeff Hiday, Christine Manuel and
Frank Winstead will face each other to
day in a runoff for Daily Tar Heel editor.
Students can also vote on whether or
not to raise the Student Activities Fee by
$1.50 per semester. The fee can only be
increased if at least 20 percent of the stu
dent body goes to the polls and a two
thirds majority votes for the increase.
Both the fee increase and the editor's
race remained undecided after the Feb. 14
election. The fee increase will be put to a
vote again because the proposal calls for a
$1.50 increase, instead of the incorrect
figure of $1.25 printed on the previous
ballot. The Student Supreme Court last
Thursday ordered a new election for
DTH editor, allowing the previously dis
qualified Jeff Hiday back in the race.
Hiday was disqualified by the Elections
Board Feb. 15 for subrnitting his cam
paign spending report 35-40 minutes past
the 5 p.m. deadline on Feb. 14. In the
first election, Hiday received 2,072 votes;
Manuel received 1,964; Conway received
701; and Winstead received 230.
John Conway decided to drop his bid
for editor because he felt it would be im
possible to catch up to Manuel and
The polling sites, which will be the
same as last Tuesday's, will be open from
10 a.m. to 7 p.m., said Elections Board
Chairman Andy Sutherland. Sutherland
added that he thought the Supreme
Court's decision to allow Hiday back in
the race was the correct decision.
In calling for a new election, the court
accepted a motion from Hiday that con
tended that "the Elections Board was not
legally constituted at -the time" it dis
qualified , the candidate. The - motion
stated that the Elections Board did not
meet a requirement in the Student Con
stitution that graduate students would be
represented on the board in proportion to
their numbers in the student body.
"At the time I had no idea we had to
be proportional; I just thought we needed
two graduate students," Sutherland said.
"But, I do feel that someone should have
been able to check me. "
"The Campus Governing Council
should make sure the laws thev Dass are
what they intend to pass, and we must
make sure we follow the law. I feel it is
necessary to follow the letter of the law,
rather than the intent, or what good are
the laws?" he said.
Hiday said he was confident about his
campaign, although he said he did not ex
pect a good turnout because of the
weather and the fact that people don't
realize there is another runoff. Hiday ad
ded that he didn't feel the recent con
troversy would hurt him. "I think people
understand what has happened," he said.
"Some ask questions, but most people
are glad to get down to finally making the
Christine Manuel said she also ex
pected a low turnout, but she said she was
' confident with her campaign. "I feel real
ly good about what I've done," she said.
"I've run a good campaign, given it my
best shot and have a lot of enthusiastic
people behind me."
Manuel added that she hadn't departed
from her basic platform or campaign
strategy since the first election. "I've con
tinued to talk to people about what I
think the problems wit the DTH are and
how I want to change them," she said.
Hiday said he had ene a lot of door-to-door
campaigning during the past couple
of days, and he expected to do more to
day. "I think the key to the election will
be who has gotten out the most and cam
paigned the hardest," he said.
"I also think that it is very important
that John Conway has thrown his sup
port to me. His campaign workers have
been very cooperative," Hiday said.
Manuel said in the last two weeks she
had tried to keep interest up in her strong
areas and to generate interest in her weak
areas. "I think South Campus and
especially Granville Towers will be the
key to the election," she said.
Frank Winstead declined to comment
on the runoff because of his complaint
with the coverage the DTH has given him
during his campaign.
grad students to board
By MARK STINNEFORD
Hoping to avoid any legal challenge to
today's Daily Tar Heel editor election,
the Campus Governing Council Monday
night approved the nominations of four
graduate students to the Elections Board.
Rules and Judiciary Committee Chair
man Patricia Wallace (District 16 off
campus) said the action was necessary to
meet a requirement in the Student Con
stitution that graduate students be
represented on the board in proportion to
the numbers in the student body.
Last week, Jeff Hiday successfully ap
pealed his disqualification from the
editor's race, contending that the Elec
tions Board did not meet the constitu
tional requirement for graduate represen
tation. The board had disqualified Hiday
for turning in a campaign spending report
35 to 40 minutes late.
The Student Supreme Court ordered a
new election for DTH editor, ruling that
the board was not legally constituted
when it disqualified Hiday.
Elections Board Chairman Andy
Sutherland said the CGC's action Mon
day would help the board put together an
election that could not be contested.
"I'm sticking to the letter (of the
law)," Sutherland said. "I think we have
to go by the letter."
The graduates appointed to the board
Tom Lambeth, Carolyn Sievers, Harry
Kaplan and Kelley Whaley were not
present at the CGC meeting Monday. But
CGC Speaker Reggie Holley (District
1 1-Olde Campus) said the council had lit
tle choice but to approve the nominees,
even without questioning them in person.
"We certainly don't know want to
make a practice of approving people we
don't know, but our backs are up against
the wall," said Holley, who argued that
approval of the nominations was
necessary to ensure a legitimate Elections
Sutherland said he could not predict
whether the new graduate members
would have time to actively serve on the
board but added that Kaplan and
Lambeth had already helped to recruit
polltenders for today's election.

Smith dressing, may
play against Ga. Tech
North Carolina guard Kenny Smith,
out of action four weeks with a frac
ture in his left wrist, has been medical
ly cleared to return to action for the
top-ranked UNC basketball team.
Smith, a 6-2 160-pound
freshman, suffered a fracture of the,
scaphoid bone on Jan. 29 against
LSU. He had been a starter in the
backcourt for the Tar Heels until that
time. His left wrist was placed in a cast
but has been checked periodically
-.since then.;.- ::.'y-'; v : r'
"Kenny has progressed to the point
where it is now safe for him to play, as
long as he is wearing a protective
device," UNC team physician Dr.
Joseph DeWalt said Monday.
Smith was fitted with a rubberized
device similar to the ones worn by
teammates Sam Perkins and Michael
Jordan earlier m the year when they
had sprained thumbs. Smith, who has
been practicing with a heavy cast, will
work out with his lightweight device
today for the first time. North
Carolina's next game will be against
Georgia Tech Wednesday niht in
"At this time we are planning on
Kenny suiting up for the Georgia Tech
game," UNC coach Dean Smith said
late Monday. "He could see som
playing time Wednesday. We will be
watching him in the course of the
week to see how he docs with this new
device on his wrist."
At the time of his injury, Smith was
averaging 10. 1 points per game andv
was leading the ACC in assists. He has
a field goal percentage of 56.7 and a: ';
free throw mark of 83.3.
