Gubernatorial candidates face off in crowded race
By TOM CONLON
With one of the most crowded fields in
recent North Carolina history, the 1984
governor's race promises to be one of the
closest-watched gubernatorial campaigns
in the nation this election year.
Each major candidate, now making his
final drive before the May 8 primary, is
predicting he'll be the one to replace
outgoing Gov. Jim Hunt, who has held
the state's top spot since 1977. The six
Democrats and one Republican given a
chance of winning the election are projec
ting images that they hope will distinguish

Noise a problem
Student me of Davis Library is
By JENNIFER TROTTER
Despite noise problems and less
hours of operation, students, as well
as Davis library employees have ex
pressed satisfaction toward the new
building since its opening Feb. 7.
Based on figures collected during
the last week of February, Larry
Alford, circulation librarian, said
41,966 people used Davis Library dur
ing that week compared to the 20,681
people who used Wilson in the last
week of February 1983. The count is
based on the number of people leaving

New Kenan Center will
By JON ZILLIOUX
Ground clearing activities will begin
this month for the construction of the .
$6.5 million William R. Kenan Jr. Center
of North Carolina, said Frank H. Kenan,
a trustee for the Kenan family trust,
which is sponsoring the development.
The five-story Kenan Center, which
will contain 60,000 square feet of space
when completed in early 1986, will be
located near the Student Activities
Center, just off Manning Drive. The
center will house the new Institute for the
Study of Private Enterprise, which is be
ing established to supplement the School
of Business Administration, Kenan said.
The top floor of the Kenan Center will
house offices of the Kenan Fund, accor
ding to a prepared statement released by
the William R. Kenan Charitable Trust,
while other areas of the building will serve
to augment these facilities by providing
space for conferences directly sponsored
by the institute, and other activities.
The purpose of the institute will be to
create a greater understanding of the role
of private enterprise in development of
the economy and to provide for the study
of topics that will directly benefit UNC
business students and members of the
business community, Kenan said.
"The institute's principle will be u
strengthen the study and broaden the
them from the rest of the field.
But there is little difference among the
candidates as a whole, with all running
basically on the same issues with the same
solutions more money for teachers,
greater economic development, fiscal
responsibility and more jobs.
The six major Democratic candidates
are Attorney General Rufus Edmisten,
former N.C. Commerce Secretary D.M.
"Lauch" Faircloth, former state
legislator Tom Gilmore, Lt. Gov. Jimmy
Green, Insurance Commissioner John In
gram and former Charlotte Mayor Eddie
Knox. Other Democrats who have filed
but are not considered leading candidates
have begun to haunt Davis, including

University Librarian, James F.
Govan, claims that the noise level is a
problem that continues to plague the
"We are still receiving complaints
about noise and talking, and we hope
that students would assist in curing
this problem," Govan said.
The present policy of library
employees is to patrol the floors
regularly to combat the noise pro
blem. Alford said he thought the
patrols, as well as increased student
awareness, had been effective in
reducing some of the complaints
While questions have been raised
about changes in the hours kept by the
library, Govan said the changes re
mained under negotiation. Alford said
expanding the hours kept by the
library would involve increase in the
library staff. He cited recent budget

private enterprise system through which
the objects of generating national wealth,
providing employment and otherwise en
riching society may more effectively be
realized," Kenan said.
The institute will occupy one floor of
the building and will initially be staffed
part-time by several UNC business facul
ty members, said John P. Evans, dean of
the School of Business Administration.
One faculty member will do research
there full-time, he said.
"This person will teach and do
research work in the areas of starting,
financing, nurturing and expanding
smaller business," Evans said.
In addition to supporting courses of
fered in the regular program of the
business school, the Kenan Institute will
facilitate management development pro
grams created especially for business peo
ple involved in new ventures, using case
studies of business activities and policy
"We believe (the institute) will fill out
the dimensions of this school's activities
by expanding our undergraduate and
graduate programs in terms of sup
plementing management and en
trepreneurial skills," Evans said.
Specific activities include short pro
grams for members of the business com
munity, programs to bring students and
executives together, conferences of suc

major from Huntington, W. Va.,
said she felt there was a need tor Davis
Library to expand its hours to those
kept by the Undergraduate Library.
"I love everything about Davis; the
comfortable chairs, open study rooms
and especially the windows," she said.
"But at 11 after organizing myself, I
know I have to relocate. If I know that
I have a long night of studying ahead
of me, I won't even go into Davis."
Davis Library is currently open
from 8 a.m.-11 p.m. Monday through
Friday; from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday,
and from 2 p.m.-ll p.m. Sunday.
Govan said overall he was pleased
with the smooth transition from
Wilson to Davis.
"A few physical problems remain in
the ventilation and air-conditioning,
but these problems are typical to new
buildings, and we are working on cor
recting them," he said. "Other than
this, everything is running as
cessful business people, and development
of case studies to be used in instruction.
"A lot of activity will be focused on
our individual researcher," he said.
Evans said the institute will play an im

and growth of small businesses statewide
"We feel the business school should
provide students with opportunities to
learn about smaller business situations.
Because of the institute they'll have even
greater opportunities to do so. This will
be a service to our students, the com
munity, and the state," Evans said.

Chapel Hill, North Carolina
Daily Tar Heel, the major candidates
stressed their stands on the issues and ex
plained their qualifications.
In the Democratic camp, Green and
Faircloth clearly are the most conser
vative candidates with their emphasis on a
tight fiscal budget and their steadfast op
position to higher taxes.
Gilmore emerges as the most liberal
candidate, calling for repeal of capital
punishment, strong enforcement of civil
rights and a commitment to raise taxes
if necessary for education.
Martin, the Republican, is a conser
vative candidate on fiscal issues and
social issues, although he supports abor
tion in cases of rape, incest or danger to
, "Education will be my first and
foremost priority when elected
governor," Faircloth said. "I will raise
teacher's salaries across the board, and a
tax increase will not be necessary."
The other candidates have also called
for an increase in teacher salaries. Martin
said he didn't plan on raising taxes, but
would not rule out the idea out if
necessary, while Knox plans to raise taxes
on beer and liquor to fund higher salaries
for teachers. If there's a consensus on
education, it's that fiscal responsibility
and realignment of the state budget will
meet the demands of education costs

Job recruitment and economic
development are also among the plat
forms of gubernatorial candidates.
"I've been to Germany recruiting in
dustry. I believe I can sell North Carolina
better than anybody," Knox said. Stress
ing industrial recruitment, particularly
high tech business, Knox said many new
jobs can be created statewide. But to con
sider unemployment in other parts of the
state, industry must go elsewhere besides
the Research Triangle Park and the Pied
Edmisten said before development
could go statewide, schools and technical
colleges would need to train people for
industrial work. "Industries choose
counties for development because those
communities have something to offer,"
he said. "We need to go into countries
like Granville and Clay."
All the candidates, while talking about
recruiting business, basically agree that
industry must expand statewide. Gilmore
has taken to working 84 different jobs
throughout the state in efforts to learn
first-hand the problems and concerns of
North Carolinians, including learning the

According to Tom McAbee, a grad

IRS may audit students' work as far back
as three years ago.
In a decision that went into effect Jan.

not have the right to decide whether or
not to withhold taxes from graduate
The -University has been negotiating
with the IRS for the past year about the
issue, McAbee said. "The University is
working toward an out-of-court settle

"The University is on our side on
this," GPSF President Tom Terrell said.
"They stand to lose $1 million to VA
million on this."
The University wants graduate students
who work for the University to meet a
certain level of income, McAbee said. "If
this money is taxed, the University may
have to raise salaries," he said.
Two requirements may be used to
determine whether a student's pay is tax
exempt, McAbee said. For exemption,
the duties must be specified as a require

primary- benefit of the funds must be for
the student, not for the University,

they feel such taxes discourage
.businessmen from expanding their plants
in the state. Faircloth also supports
removing the sales tax on food.
The inventory tax is applied to
manufacturers, while the intangibles tax
requires companies and their employees
to pay on items such as savings, retire
ment plans and stock options.
"There is (with the intangible tax) a
tendency to discourage businesses from
locating here... and a strong effect of
discouraging retirees so that they go
somewhere else," Martin said.
Environmental concerns have risen in
campaign platforms, and Martin is con
cerned about toxic waste disposal. "Right
now, North Carolina is the seventh
largest producer of toxic chemicals, yet
we do not have a policy of disposing of
these wastes," he said.
Edmisten said dumping hazardous
wastes on the roads should be a felony
and proposed a hazardous waste commit

the Faircloth and Green campaigns, both
of whom favor additional funds for inr

According to Davis, many graduate
students, especially those coming to UNC
from other universities, are unaware that
fall parking permits must be applied for
