The Campus Governing Council's
Rules and Judiciary Committee
reprieved Supreme Court Chief Justice
appointee Scott Norberg yesterday,
approving him minutes after voting
against the appointment.
The second vote ended in a tie when
John Nicholson (Dist. 17) asked to
change his negative vote to an absten
tion. Committee Chairperson Patricia
Wallace (Dist. 16) then cast the deciding
vote in favor. Norberg was rejected after
the first vote, with two members voting
against his appointment, one voting in
favor and one abstaining.
Confirmation of Norberg is pending
Campus Governing Council approval
by a two-thirds majority tomorrow.
"It was a difficult situation for all of
us," Wallace said. "We felt a lot of
pressure from all directions. On the one
hand you have all these qualifications,
and on the other are questions."
Norberg is a second-year law student
and former student body president.
After graduation he received the pres
tigious Frank Porter Graham Award
for public service.
"This is an extremely, extremely
important office," said Max Lloyd
(Dist. 15). "I had doubts if he was the
best qualified for the position." Lloyd
said he couldn't comment further.
During the meeting Norberg ans
wered questions posed by committee
members, who also took a 45-minute
break to speak with him and Student
Body President Paul Parker privately.
Before the recess Lloyd asked Nor
berg about his attempt to receive a $175
advance on his presidential salary in
1981 to pay for a Law School Admis
sions Test counseling program. The
Student Activities Fund Office refused
to process the request, explaining that
money for personal gains could not go
to members of campus organizations.
"At that point I said, 'Forget the
whole thing,' " Norberg replied. "I think
it was not a good thing to have done."
Lloyd also asked that Norberg
respond to charges of sexism. "I think
it's ah outrageous accusation," Norberg
said. "The reason it doesn't make me
mad is because I just cant take it
seriously." He added his term as student
body president promoted equality
Happy 400th birthday
party comes to town

The celebration of North Carolina's
400th anniversary arrives in Chapel Hill
this week. The celebration, called
Festival Four Hundred, will include a
variety of attractions, lectures, perfor
mances and exhibits around Chapel Hill
and the UNC campus.
The festival marks 400 years since the
arrival of the first colonists from
England who landed on Roanoke
Island on July 13, 1584. Accordingly,
the anniversary celebration began this
July in Manteo, on Roanoke Island,
and was marked by the visit of Princess
Anne of Great Britain, who stayed at
the Morehead House at UNC while in
North Carolina. Since July, the cele
bration has and will continue to move
through the state, but the activities in
Chapel Hill are of special importance.
Bacause Chapel Hill is a university

the 400th Anniversary Committee for
Orange County, said that the festival

said Jacqulyn Osborne, assistant direc

knowing that they are capable of
standing on their own, she said.
Nationally, 25 percent of freshman
dental students are women.
College women are entering tradi
tionally male-dominated fields in such
numbers that they are changing the
traditionally "males only" reputation of
careers such as dentistry, medicine and
law. About 40 percent of this year's law
school graduates are women, said
Elizabeth Gibson. UNC associate
professor of law.
In large cities, the sex of a profes
sional job applicant is no longer a major
issue. Gibson said. Though most
women graduates from UNC prefer to
remain in North Carolina, many don't
return to their hometowns, preferring
to work in the Charlotte. Winston

Our country is only as great as our
commitment to justice and equality for
all, former KMBC anchorperson Chris
tine Craft told a Memorial Hall
audience last night.
With a strong sense of humor and
what she called a "great desire" to
combat discrimination in this country,
Craft attacked the news media's over
emphasis on style and condemned the
Reagan administration for making
"equity in the workplace a partisan
Craft, who was hired by Metromedia
Corp. as an anchorperson in 1980 said
she was later dismissed because, "I was
too unattractive, too old and not
deferential enough to men."
In the world of news television today,
it is far more important for women to
look good than to be a good journalists,
Craft said repeatedly. "The emphasis in
Metromedia was always on appearance,
never on the what kind of reporter I
"My job as a journalist is to give you
the news, not to defer to men."
Craft described her start in television
news as a weatherperson for KSBW
TV in Salinas, Calif., as her first
introduction to the discrimination
against women in the TV industry.
"I started out as a curvaceous cutie
in front of a stationary front," she said.
"During one long heat wave . . . the
station manager said to me, 'Lift their
spirits and do the weather in a bikini.' "
Instead, Craft appeared on the air in
the "ugliest turn-of-the-century bathing
suit" she could find. The station
manager thought the joke was funny
and got the message. He didn't ask her
to do the weather in a bikini after that.
"The best way to confront racism,
sexism . . . is a sense of humour in most
cases," she said.
Craft said she considered herself
more than an anchorperson and was
proud of her accomplishments as a
reporter, such as a series on methadone
clinics and a piece on the effects of

Mondale won, Reagan continued to
pound away at the tax issue.
"I'm here in a city that is part of a

home construction and decreases in
unemployment in Charlotte. "The

"They've got to raise our taxes to get
things good again," Reagan said.

in taxes than under Carter-Mondale,
while Mondale's new tax increase
proposal would boost that figure to
$1,890 he said.
"They say they're going to bring back
their kind of compassion (raising taxes).
See REAGAN on page 3
they try to do both, they may have an
idealized view. There are hard choices
to make," said Gibson. Few profes
sional jobs are the nine-to-five type
where the worker can easily separate
the office from family life. Professionals
tend to marry professionals, so there
is not only job stress but also difficulties
in planning time together, she said.
While most college-educated women
still want both a career and family, they
are becoming less inclined to marry
right out of college, said Margie Walker,
head of the Association for Women
Students. Women are more often
seeking to establish themselves in the
busines world, although some have
idealistic views of what the working
world will be like for them.
"Many women feel that with a degree,
problems such as less pay and sexual
harassment don't apply to them," said
Walker. Since women are usually
treated as equals in high school and
college, it is a shock for them to enter
the business world and have to prove
themselves because of their sex, she said.
But despite these problems, college
women are continuing to successfully
enter almost any career they choose.
Many senior women, like Allison
Sanders, a senior psychology major
from Rocky Mount, are choosing
majors which they feel will allow them
a wide range of career choices.
"Psychology is a good all-around
major; you can use it in almost any job,"
said Sanders, who is hoping for a job
in sales or personnel management after
