Corooratfoinis may withhold graete iff omversMes divest
By JEANNIE FARIS
Assistant State & National Editor
While the federal government slashes
education funding, U.S. corporations are
filling in the gaps with more grant money
to universities. But campus activism
threatens to put extra holes in university
Some corporations that continue to do
business in South Africa warn that they will
withhold grants if the universities divest,
while others claim to separate stockholding
from educational support.
UNC has invested a total of $4,679,375,
or 4 percent of its endowment fund, in U.S.
corporations in South Africa. Of these
corporations, four "have given grants
totaling more than $2 million to the
University over the past nine years.
Representatives of all four corporations
said they probably would not withhold
grants to UNC if the Endowment Board
divested their stock. They each said a
specific policy had not been formulated.
UNC Endowment Board member Robert
Eubanks said the University does not
receive much corporate money, and divest
ing would only make matters worse now
that government grants are dwindling.
"Why should we be willing to take their
money and spend it, but not be willing to
let them earn it?" Eubanks said. "The
University is not owned by students, the
faculty or the trustees, but by the people
of North Carolina. We should keep
consistent with the interests of the North
RJR Nabisco has given the University
its largest grant, a total of $2 million since
1978, for the Carolina Challenge, an
unrestricted endowment fund of the UNC
Foundation for Education.
"We make educational grants in areas
of interest to us and for supporting the
community," said Jan Cousart, senior
public relations representative for RJR
Nabisco. "Grants are not related to whether
or not (universities) choose to hold stock
in our company."
CIGNA has given $10,000 over three
years for minority students in the School
of Business. Hewlet Packard has given a
total of $12,000 since 1985 for chemistry
research. The Westinghouse plant in
Raleigh gave $3,000 in 1986 for the School
of Business' operational costs.
Westinghouse headquarters in Pitts
burgh, Pa., has no impact on the grants
policy of the Raleigh plant, said Ray
Nichols, manager of the human relations
division. He said the Raleigh plant would
make its own decisions concerning grants
if UNC divested.
UNC reported a total of $24 million in
U.S. corporate grants in the 1985-86 school
year, said Paul Miller, vice president of the
Council on Financial Aid to Higher
Between 1984 and 1985, the total gift
support to universities and colleges was
$1.57 billion, and corporate gifts have
increased 126 percent over the past five
years, Miller said.
"That's a lot of money and it's increasing
very rapidly," Miller said. "There has been
a very large increase in corporate gifts and
Miller said corporations as well as
universities have a great deal at stake in
giving grants to higher education.
"Colleges and universities are important
in terms of recruiting efforts and research
at the univeristy," Miller said. "A lot of
money is flowing to support research and
education, and a great deal of momentum
has built up behind it."
Because there is such an interdependence
between the schools and corporations, it
is unlikely that the policies of stock
investment and grants will become linked.
Miller said. ,
"We can find very, very little evidence
they're withholding grant money," Miller
said. "They're trying to keep quiet ... to
maintain a hands-off attitude."
He said he thought universities were
acting hypocritically when asking corpora
tions for grant money while refusing to
invest in their stock because they do
business in South Africa.
"Why should they take companies
money we give them in grants? That's been
tainted with the blood of South Africa,"

Runoff elections for student body
president, senior class treasurer and
District 13 student congress repre
sentative will be held today, accord

Because no candidate for those
offices received 50 percent of the
vote, the two top finishers in each
race will compete in today's runoff.

In the SBP election, Jaye Sitton
will run against Brian Bailey. Sitton
received 1,532 votes to Bailey's 1,250

race. Cohen received 498 votes to
Tester's 303. Third-place finisher
Zanna Worsham pulled 285 votes in
the first election.
In the election for District 13

James Leutze will be leaving his UNC office to assume the presidency of Hampden-Sydney College
The final days
Leutze looks back on years at UNC
By SUZANNE JEFFRIES
"Hitler was a lucky anarchist
who knew a little bit about a lot
of things," says Dowd professor
James Leutze, standing in front
of a huge black-and-white projec
tion of the Nazi leader.
For Leutze, professor and
chairman of the University's
peace, war and defense curricu
lum, this course is one of the last
he will teach at the University
before officially becoming the
president of Hampden-Sydney
College in Virginia on July 1.
"I think it is very dangerous for
us to lull ourselves into a sense
that Hitler is so odd and unusual
that no one like him can come
again," he tells more than 200
History . 77 students packed into
the lecture hall listening
Leutze said his decision to leave
the University was not easy. "I
like what I'm doing, and I like
my students and teaching," he
said. "The University has been
good to me."
Hampden-Sydney College, an
arts and sciences liberal arts
college, would give him a chance
to explore new educational expe
riences, he said. "I have a lot of
educational ideas and concepts
I'd like to try out," he said. "I
can have some influence over the
choice of faculty and courses, and
have a chance to play a larger role

Charging that fraternities are
"trash piles and public nuisances,"
Mayor James C. Wallace led the
Chapel Hill Town Council Monday
night in unanimously tightening up
Chapel Hill's noise ordinance, reduc
ing the maximum allowable sound
level from 85 to 75 decibels.
The amendment also reduces the
number of hours noise permits are
valid. Previously, permits were valid
from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Fridays
and 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. on Saturdays.
Now permits are only valid until
midnight on these nights.
Wallace said, "The measure has
nothing to do with students; it has
to do with simple civility."
The students have a responsibility
to the town since they are "furnished
with an $8,000 a year subsidy to be
here (at the University)," he said.
When asked to explain that figure
after the meeting, Wallace said, "The
General Assembly of North Carolina
subsidizes educational institutions in
the state . . . but I'm not sure of the
exact figure, only that it is a very
Wallace spearheaded the action
after two other council members
suggested adopting the new amend
ment only temporarily.
Council member R.D. Smith
suggested enforcing the new regula
tion while council members checked
into the complaints, and council
member Nancy Preston suggested
adopting it for one year, forming in
the meantime a study panel of
students, citizens and town staff.
- Although the measure passed
unanimously, a majority of the press
did not hear the motion for a vote,
nor for the second to the motion,
which have to be publically
announced before the vote can take
Town clerk Nancy Wells said after
the meeting that Smith introduced
the motion and Preston seconded it.
Four members of the University's
fraternities attended the meeting.
"I think we should work with
setting up a special zone ordinance
for fraternities," Interfraternity
Council President and Sigma Nu
fraternity member John Parham
Parham said Raleigh has such
zoning for N.C. State University
fraternities and it works well.

Lack off financial report keeps
candidates from taking seats
By ERIC BRADLEY
Two newly elected members of the
Student Congress and a runoff
candidate won't take their seats
because they didn't file a financial
report telling the Elections Board
how much money they spent on their
campaigns, Elections Board officials
Disqualified are Tripp Doepner,
who had been elected in District 2,
and Kathleen Sowa, from District
8. Both had won as write-in
A third student, Grady Ingle, who
had won a place in Tuesday's runoff
against Cindy Hatfield in District 1,
has also been disqualified for the
same reason. Hatfield is now auto
matically elected, said Steve Lisk,
Elections Board Chairman.
The General Election Laws of
Student Government say that all
candidates, including write-ins, must
submit financial statements detailing
their campaign expenses by 5 p.m.
the day after an election even if
they spend no money. That would
have been last Wednesday at 5 p.m.
Sowa said she may appeal the
decision that disqualifed her. "I was
given the wrong deadline," she said.
"I was told (by the Elections Board)
that I had until Friday."
Lisk said that it was possible some
write-in candidates didn't know
about the rules, but that it didn't
justify their not filing the financial
"With them running, they should
have shown the interest and initiative
to find out about this," he said. The
board tried to call Sowa shortly after
her victory to tell her to file a
statement but could not reach her,
The two candidates for student
body president, for their part, said
the rules should be enforced.
"I think they should be disqual
ified," said Brian Bailey, who faces
Jaye Sitton in Tuesday's runoff. "1
think if you're going to run, you
should know your responsibilities."
"Obviously 1 think the election
laws have to be obeyed," she said.
But she said the Elections Board
should do a better job of informing
candidates, particularly write-ins, of
The board should notify winning
candidates within 24 hours that they
must file a financial statement, Sitton
said. Also, candidates should have
24 hours to file their reports after
A special election will be held next
fall to fill the two vacant Congress
seats, said Julie Miller, Elections
Board treasurer. Meanwhile, the
seats will be empty.
While student congress candidates
were being disqualified for violating
financial statement rules, Sitton and
Bailey said they supported the rules
limiting campaign expenditures.
"If there were a candidate who had
a lot to spend, he or she could easily
defeat someone who had less," Sitton
said. "The spending limits don't
completely eliminate that possiblity,
but they make it less likely."
"I definitely want to keep some
spending limits," she said.
Candidates for student body
president are allowed to spend up
to $400 in the first election and $200
in the runoff.
"Four hundred dollars is a lot of
money, and it buys a lot of posters,"
Sitton said. "It's sufficient to make
a relatively unknown person well
known." But she said money "doesn't make
or break a candidate. Talking to
people is more important."
Bailey agreed that the $600 overall
