The appointment of Scott Norberg,
former student body president, as
Student Supreme Court chief justice
won Campus Governing Council appro
val yesterday, surpassing the two-thirds
majority vote required.
A vote of 12 to 2, with four absten
tions, ended three weeks of controversy
over Student Body President Paul
Parker's appointment of Norberg.
"The council I think was just being
careful," Norberg said after the meeting.
"I'm happy that it's behind me."
In a related bill the CGC confirmed
the appointments of James Exum and
Maria Baxter as associate justices and
Brian Dalton, John Diamantstein,
Charlie Madison, Robin Thompson
and Robyn Hadley as emergency
Debate over Norberg in the CGC
Rules and Judiciary Committee meet
ing Monday questioned whether he was
the most qualified for the position. But
Parker opened yesterday's discussion
saying, "It's not whether you like the
appointment or dislike the appoint
ment, it's whether he's qualified or not."
When asked about his experience,
Norberg said he worked in Student
Government for three years and learned
what goes into passing laws and how
student organizations inter-relate. He
also said experience with campaigns
would help him judge elections cases,
which he said constitute most of the
Supreme Court's workload.
Ideally there would be no workload,
Norberg said. "By no means would I
ever encourage a case to come to the
Court. I think I would be a conservative
justice the sense that I'm using that
word is that I don't think the Court
should be free to make up law."
The CGC defeated an amendment
from Doug Berger (Dist. 1) that would
have altered the chief justice selection
process. Berger said he wanted those
appointed to serve one year on the
Court and judge at least one case.
"There are many on this council who
call into question the procedure Scott
was selected in," he said. "In the future
we need some sort of criteria set forth."
Other members agreed but said the
amendment did not relate to the bill
appointing Norberg. "I think it's not
germane to the appointment of the
Supreme Court chief justice at all,"
Wyatt Closs (Dist. 10) said. "I think
we're setting bad precedents."
New dorm plans
Housing to increase number of rooms for women
By KEVIN WASHINGTON
The rising number of women students
at UNC has forced University housing
to propose two plans for the allotment
of space to female students in the new
dormitory under construction on Sta
dium Drive, according to Wayne Kuncl,
One plan would dedicate all 496
spaces in the new dormitory to women
and convert Avery dormitory to an all
male hall, while the other would
dedicate 240 spaces in the new hall to
men and 256 to women and convert
Joyner to all male and Everett and
Graham to all female.
The first plan would create 368 more
spaces for women while the second plan
would add 286 spaces.
In addition, Kuncl said some floors
in Hinton James might be converted
to all female no matter which plan was

Winging it home can be a problem
By LAURA VAN SANT
For the average UNC student, going
home means little more than throwing
a suitcase in the truck and thinking of
the home-cooked meal that will be on
the table in a few hours. But for out-of-state
students who have to take a
plane, getting home isn't so easy.
Because of the cost of flying, some
students only make it hore two or three
times a year.
"I go home for Christmas, Thanks
giving and Spring Break," said Marc
Huber, a sophomore from Jackson,
N.J. "I told my parents, 'If you want
me home, you pay.' It's too expensive

incumbent Republican President
Ronald Reagan with Democratic pre

four-member debate teams from the
Young Democrats and UNC College
Republicans sparred through eight
rounds of questions on domestic issues
before a sparse audience of 50 last night
in Hamilton 100.
The debate, sponsored by The Pho

College Republicans, featured discus
sions of the environment, the federal
buget deficit, the Equal Rights Amend
ment, racial and sexual discrimination,
merit pay for teachers, student loans
and other economic issues.

"Holiday flights are difficult. All the
cheap seats are taken," she said.
Some students find ways to avoid the
hassles and costs of flying. They have
cars and drive themselves or they get
rides. Hundreds of students have signed
up at the Student Union "ride board"
to try and get home for Fall Break, and
many are already looking for rides later
in the year.

Garland, Texas, is advertising in the

"Last year I didnt sign up (on the
ride board) until after Thanksgiving,
and as time went on I got real nervous
about it," she said.
Vaandrager did find a ride last year,
but this time she's not taking any
chances. "If I dont find a ride, IVe got

Stafford said the practice of giving
the best dormitories to females began
years ago when female students needed
courting parlors. He said, "Today,
women just dont need them any more
"To make (the new dormitory) totally
female would exclude the possibility of
any males ever having the opportunity
to live there," he said. "Males, like
females, have over the years in many
ways paid through their rents to build
the new hall."
Kuncl said giving all spaces to women
would be easier to implement but agreed
the split sex plan would be more
middle class and poor out in the cold.
"Here's one (a question of the budget
deficit) that's asking the people to bite
the bullet," he said.
CR Doug Turpin, a senior political
science major, said Mondale's tax
increase plan was not a deficit-reduction
plan. "Mondale could not cut the
mustard when it comes to cutting the
deficit," Turpin said, quoting former
Democratic President Franklin Roose
velt. "You cannot get the government
out of the red by putting red into the
government," he said of Mondale's plan
which would increase taxes above the
$25,000 income level.

Co-op to delay legal action

Pascal and Associates Inc. of Chapel
Hill will not take legal action against
UNC Student Stores until attorneys
from the N.C. attorney general's office
respond to Pascal's complaints about
the stores' pricing and selling of
computer equipment, said James Tar
vid, general manager of Pascal.
The local computer cooperative
presented its complaints to representa
tives from the attorney general's office
Monday after examining the financial
records of the Student Stores.
The complaints, which focus on the
Umstead Act authorizing the operation
of student stores, ask for an outline of
the proper structure of student stores,
a specific definition of supplies and
materials covered under the act and
guidelines on competition between
student stores and area morkets, Tarvid
Pascal contends that by selling
computer equipment at prices below
area market prices, Student Stores
violates a state law prohibiting state
run organizations from pricing mer
chandise to compete with local retailers.
Only students, faculty and staff of
UNC are allowed to buy computers in
the Student Stores.
In an earlier letter to the general
manager of the Student Stores, Tarvid
asked the Student Stores to either stop
selling computer equipment or to sell
computer equipment at "normal retail

Balthrop was contacted by a CBS
News staff member to judge the debate
in New York for a segment to be aired
sometime between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m.
He said CBS chose him because of his
nine years in the department of speech
communication as a professor and
director of augmentation and debate.
Balthrop, who advises UNC's fore

display of rhetorical skills. Also impor

"Issues and the image the politicians

The sex of the candidates will play
an important role in the debate,
according to Balthrop. Ferraro cannot

can she be too feminine, he said.
"Ferraro cannot come across as being
excessively aggressive because it will

Tarvid said he is also concerned that
Student Stores do not stand behind the
computers they sell. He said that there
is not a repair shop within the Student
Stores to service the computers they sell.
An electrical repair shop is being set
up to repair personal computers, Antle
said. "As part of our agreement with
Apple, we had to guarantee that
someone would have the expertise to
service the computers," he said.
Choices about what Student Stores
can sell under the Umstead Act are
made on an item-by-item basis, said
Antle. The decision is usually based on
what has been sold in the past. Student

that Bush could also run into problems
during the debate.
He can't treat Ferraro too gently, but
he also can't be extremely tough on her,
he said. Bush has to ride a fine line.
"Bush cannot patronize her; if he goes
too hard on her, he will be perceived
as picking on her," Balthrop said.
A Bush victory over Ferraro in the
debate won't be easy, he said, because
of Ferraro 's proven ability as a public
speaker and her ability to respond
effectively to aggressive questioning.
Balthrop also said Bush would run the
risk of proving feminist claims that the
