There were a few surprises but no
real shocks Tuesday night as the
results of the Chapel Hill Town
Council elections slowly filtered in.
Early in the night, the absentee
votes predicted the winners of the
four open seats on the town council.
At 9 p.m., incumbent Nancy
Preston had 71 absentee votes,
Roosevelt Wilkerson had 52, Joe
Herzenberg had 43 and Mayor James
Wallace had 41. This was the same
order of the final votes.
At the close of election night, with
16 of 17 districts reporting, Preston
had 4,007 votes, Wilkerson had 3,348
votes, Herzenberg had 3,308 votes,,
and Wallace had 2,897.
"I was surprised I did so well,"
Preston said. "I had hoped I would
do this well, but there were a lot of
uncertainties and you just never

J.R. Reid and Steve Bucknall, two
UNC basketball players involved in
a recent altercation in a Raleigh
nightclub, have been suspended for
the Tar Heels season opener against
Syracuse, coach Dean Smith
Smith, in a statement released
through the Sports Information
Office, said Reid, a sophomore from
Virginia Beach, Va., and Bucknall,
a junior from London, England,
would have to sit out UNC's first
regular-season game as part of their
punishment for allowing themselves
to become involved in the incident.
"Although the players were ver
bally harassed and pushed in an effort
to provoke some kind of response,"
Smith said, "I am taking disciplinary
steps against them for not getting out
when the verbal harassment started."
Smith did not elaborate on what
other steps would be taken.
"This is a team matter and will be
handled internally," Smith said.
.-"However, since the suspensions will
be obvious, I am going ahead and
announcing that part of my action."
Reid and Bucknall were charged
with assault following an early
morning altercation on Oct. 24 with

Preston also came out on top in
the 1983 council race.
Wilkerson said he thought that
endorsements, particularly from the
Alliance of Neighborhoods, were the
major factor in his success.
He also said he was pleased with
his strong showing in the race. In
1985, he finished eighth out of 10
"It feels good to know that people
have recognized that I'm a serious
candidate," he said.
Herzenberg said he was the first
openly gay elected official in the
history of North Carolina.
He had served on the town council
from 1979 to 1981 while a graduate
student at UNC, and he attributed
his recent success to perseverance.

knocked on about 8,000 to 10,000
doors for this campaign," he said.
"We appealed to all the basic groups:
blacks, neighborhood activists, gays
and lesbians, certain conservatives
and straight white conservatives."
Wallace has served on the council
twice and is completing his second
term as mayor.
"I am very glad to hand over these
numerous rituals of the mayoral
position to someone else. I think this
is my last effort to hold local public
office," he said.
Wallace suggested that the council
appoint a student to a non-voter seat
so that channels of communication
are opened and no misunderstandings
"Instead of learning indirectly what
the students want, we should be able
to learn directly," he said. "Three
fourths or more of the problems we're
running into could be nipped in the
bud by this."

Carrboro's mayoral election
resulted in a surprise upset as chal

incumbent Jim Porto in his attempt
for a third term in office.
Carrboro residents cast 793 votes
in favor of Kinnaird, who won the
office with 55 percent of the returns.
Porto received 45 percent of the
returns with 646 votes.

Wallace by only 375 votes.
"I was hoping that more students
would turn out," he said. "This was
a perfect opportunity for the students
to be represented. Both Rob (Fried
man), an excellent candidate, and I
were really pulling for the students
and it just didn't happen."
Friedman finished the race in
seventh place, but won the Country
Club student precinct with 152 votes.
"I feel fine about the way I did,
considering many of the people I was
running against had run before," he
said. "I just wish more students would
have turned out."
But Friedman said he still wanted
to work with the town to improve
University-town relations. He did not

"The players should have left when

Kinnaird, a teaching assistant at
the University music library, said
before the elections that Amberly is
the emergency issue of the campaign.
Watershed development could
endanger the water supply to about
55,000 people in Carrboro, Chapel

Extra fee will finance
new drop-add system
By KRISTEN GARDNER

An extra student fee to fund a
phone-in registration system will
probably be levied without a
second student referendum, Uni

But the fee will not be imple

operation in the fall of 1990, said
