Gilmore said of the two organizations.
The AFL-CIO has 145,000 members
statewide, while about 52,000 teachers are

ments gave his campaign more credibility
and helped raise money.
Although Gilmore generally rates fifth
or sixth in the crowded governor's race
according to statewide public opinion
polls, he doesn't think the polls hurt his
momentum. (Gilmore is at 4.2 percent in
the UNC School of Journalism's
Carolina Poll and at 4 percent in The
Charlotte Observer Poll.) "The only poll
that counts is Tuesday, May 8," the day
of the state primary, Gilmore said.
Gilmore compared his poll standing to
presidential candidate Gary Hart's low
figures one month ago. Hart was once
around 4 percent in the polls and now is
the top contender, Gilmore said. He
estimated that 60 percent of his campaign
now is based on name recognition and
that his standings would" rise once his

Holley said a copy of the current finan

cording to SAFO, shows that Student

there were no other funds.

was considered odd. But public concern
about drunk driving, health and fitness,
underage drinking, and alcoholism have
caused a widespread reshaping of public
attitudes toward alcohol. .
Nationwide, the change has resulted in
a decline in per capita consumption of
alcoholic beverages. The Wall Street
Journal reports that beer consumption,
after increasing rapidly in the 1970s, has
leveled off since 1981. Liquor consump

has been slowly declining since 1978.

there was so little money available in the

"I feel those who aren't familiar with
Student Government don't realize how
badly we need an increase," Holley said,
referring to the Student Activities Fee.
"However, I think some people on last
year's council thought, 'How do you get
a fee increase? Deplete your funds. I
think their point was made."
If the amounts supported by Watson
and Holley are correct, it could be a lean

counting on student fees.

Student Government could be withdrawn
because the loan was not legally approved
by the Campus Governing Council, said
Patricia Wallace, chairperson of the

"The loan can be canceled," she said.
"That's the way I would interpret it since
the action (to approve the loan) was il
legal in the first place."

No. decision for a month
Garrow not sure of future plans
By JANET OLSON
David J. Garrow, assistant political
science professor at UNC, said Monday
he would not decide for at least a month
whether he will sue the University for de
nying his reappointment.
Garrow said he would leave the deci
sion to his attorneys, who represent
Williams & Connolly, a Washington
based firm. Williams & Connolly became
involved in his case, Garrow said, when
Washington American Civil Liberties
Union lawyers brought it to the firm's at
tention. When the UNC Board of Governors
last Friday turned down his. tenure re
quest, Garrow lost his appeal at the
highest level in the UNC system. But Gar

The BOG review can be labeled a ra
tional basis test under which one must
prove an action to be irrational in order
to achieve judicial reversal, Garrow said.
The review process was not to make a
judgment on the fairness of the tenure
denial, he said, but to look for some
available basis of support for the deci
sions made in his case over the past year.
According to a panel report to the
BOG committee on personnel and tenure,
the basic question in Garrow's appeal to
the BOG was whether he had failed to
prove a violation of University code in his
appeal last year to the UNC Faculty

her bill is the centralization of certain

"The proper procedure was for the
constitution to be approved by the R&J
Committee and the entire Council. They
did receive the $22,000 loan without the
constitution being approved.
"As chairperson of the R&J Commit
tee, I take full blame for that," he said.
Holley said it was not an intentional
oversight, but the constitution simply got
lost in the shuffle.
"The constitution got buried among
' other things in the R&J Committee at the
time. We just neglected by mistake to
take care of the matter," Holley said.
Fred Baker, treasurer for STV, said he
was not concerned about the constitution
or the loan.
"I don't believe it's in danger," Baker
said. "As soon as the constitution is ap
proved, the loan will go through. I guess

perfectly legal. I don't really think it's a
big deal. It was an honest mistake, and
we're doing everything we can to operate
within the guidelines of the CGC."
John Wilson, co-chairman of STV, ex
pressed concern over the chance of the
loan being canceled.
"I'm frustrated as hell," he said. "If
we don't get our equipment this week
we'll miss the (Carolina) Symposium."
Wilson said a special meeting of the
CGC to discuss nd hopefully pass the
STV constitution has been set for Friday
at 3:30 p.m. He said if discussion was
kept to a minimum, the constitution
could be approved by 4 p.m. and STV

Chapel Hill will probably not be as great
as the nationwide trend.

against him because he held the entire
burden of proving his allegation that Uni
versity code was violated in his tenure
He said the code listed three impermis
sible reasons to deny tenure: discrimina
tion based on race, sex, nationality or
religion; violation of one's freedom of
speech; and personal malice. He attemp
ted to prove in his appeal to the Faculty
Hearing Committee that the tenure denial
was based on personal malice and on his
exercise of constitutionally-protected
rights of free speech.
The BOG panel report said, "The
(Faculty Hearings Committee) found that
the evidence presented by Dr. Garrow did
not sustain his charges."
Garrow denied comment on what he
planned to do if he did not pursue, the
case. Within the next month, he said he
would decide whether to undertake a pro
ject on the grass roots impact of the civil
rights movement on the rural south over
the past 25 years, focusing on Albany,
Ga. Another possibility, Garrow said,
would be to complete a book on John
Edgar Hoover in the FBI.
