William Jennings Bryan for the
Populists, Eugene Debbs for the
Socialists, Jon Anderson as an
independent although none of
these third party candidates ever won
the presidency, all brought color and
lively debate to otherwise ordinary
The Libertarian Party, the largest
third party in the United States, will
offer former Republican Rep. Ron
Paul of Texas as their 1988 presiden
?We (Libertarians) agree with
conservatives on economic issues and
with liberals on civil liberties," Paul
said. "It's a very attractive philo-
sophy. Evn though we're critical of
both parties, we pick out the best of
Paul, who will speak at Duke
University Dec. 10 and at UNC-
Greensboro Dec. 11, said he left the
Republican Party because he was
disappointed in the "all talk, no
action" attitude of the Republicans.
"1, like many other Americans, am
fed up," he said.
Libertarians advocate world peace
by opposing U.S. military interven
tion into other countries, Paul said.
U.S. military interventation invites
social unrest, leaving a country .
vulnerable to communism, he said.
Libertarians are the opposite of
moderates, Paul said. While moder
ates endorse both liberal and conser
vative expenditures, Libertarians
"Liberals want the money for
welfare, and conservatives want the
money for warfare," he said. "We're
the only ones who talk about fixing
problems instead of throwing money
Although the Libertarian Party
appeals to many different people, it
has found much of its support among
young people and college students,
The party attracts young people
because they are more open to new
ideas, he said.
The Paul campaign has raised
$400,000, Paul said. But since major
party campaigns are bureaucratic and
wasteful, he estimates the Paul
campaign spends $1 for every $5 to
$10 a major candidate spends.
Getting on the 1988 ballot, how
ever, may be a greater problem than
finances. Third parties must petition
each state to get on the ballot, he said.
North Carolina, which requires more
than 40,000 signatures, is one of the
most difficult, Paul said.
Paul said he remains optimisitic
since the Libertarian Party got on the
ballot in all 50 states in 1980 and
received one million votes in the
Although Paul has little name
recognition, he said he is pleased with
the amount of media attention he
"C-Span covers me routinely, CNJ
covers me regularly and Fox TV is
talking about it." he said.
Noting poor odds for winning,
Paul acknowledged that he would
probably not be the next U.S.
"But we run to win," he said.
Paul is a leading spokesman for
the Austrian school of economics'
which advocates a free market and
a return to the gold standard. He is
a practicing obstetrician-gynecologist
and publishes the Ron Paul Invest
ment Letter, with a monthly circu
lation of 12,000.

A local developer plans to begin
work in February or March on the
first of three buildings that will make
up the Westcourt complex
Renovations will begin on the old
Southern Bell building on West
Franklin Street after the Appearance
Commission approves the final
design, said developer Guilford
Waddell. The building will feature
30,000 square feet of commercial and
.Waddell said the leases will be
secured for . the building after the
drawings are completed. "About 10
or". 1 1 tenants have already expressed
an interest in the building space,
On Nov. 23, the Chapel Hill Town
Council voted 6-3 to approve a
special-use permit for the office,
commercial and residential complex
on West Franklin and West Rose
mary streets. Council members Julie
Andresen, David Pasquini and R.D.
Smith voted against the proposal,
objecting to the design and height of
the building and the lack of parking.
The complex will consist of the
existing West Franklin Street build
ing as well as two new six-story
residential buildings located on West
Franklin and West Rosemary streets.
Construction will begin on the
Franklin Street building in the spring
of 1988 and should be completed by
the end of the year. The Rosemary
Street building will be started at the
end of 1988.
The council's approval allows the
developer to apply for a zoning
compliance permit from the Appear
ance Commission: and a building
permit from the town.
Andresen said she opposed the
downtown project because the archi
tect did not work at making it
"My argument was it's so darn
large and high that it doesn't fit in,"
she said. "While it was a good
attempt, it missed, in my view."
Andresen complained about design
aspects such as parking, the height
of the complex and the surrounding
wall, which will face the street. She
said the walls make the complex look
like a fortress.
"Some of my colleagues argued it
complied with the height ordinance
since it is less than 90 feet it's 88
so it is okay," Andresen said.
She also said the design is unreal
istic because it only allots one parking
space for each residential unit.
, Andresen said such projects mot
ivated her to submit a proposal to
the council about a month ago. The
proposal would re-evaluate down
town zoning restrictions.

Legislative committees may affect TUNC
Clark said he was opposed to
guaranteeing space to sophomores
because it would change the distri
bution of upperclassmen on campus.
"Juniors and seniors are a resource
that provides diversity and leadership
that we can't afford to lose," he said.
"Guaranteeing housing for sopho
mores won't justify that loss, even if
it's a small one."
Board member Lee Greene, asso
ciate professor of English, said he
thought reducing the number of
upperclassmen in residence halls
would damage the academic and
"You're going to create a 'camp'
situation with only freshmen and
sophomores," Greene said. "The

Of about 70 legislative committees
gearing up for studies, several may
have direct impact on the UNC
community, the legislative counsel to
the N.C. General Assembly said
Committees studying sports law,
public hospitals, and public workers
and buildings could formulate policy
which might directly affect the
university community if it is passed
by the N.C. General Assembly, said
Linwood Jones, legislative counsel.
In past years, committees began to
meet and discuss policy earlier in the
year, but an unusually long General
Assembly session pushed back the
schedule, Jones said. As a result,
many of the' committees have not yet
held an initial meeting.
The state legislature creates all the
committees, but they report back to
the body in different ways and some

Summers said the legislature
creates two types of committees: one
that reports findings directly to the
legislature and one that reports to
Legislative Research Commission.
The lieutenant governor has the
power to appoint some members to
committees which report directly to
the legislature, Summers said. The
legislature determines the number of
Legislative members primarily staff
the LRC committees, while the other
committees may include a larger
percentage of public citizens, Jones

Within both of these categories of
committees, Summers said, the
Assembly assigns some committees to
study ongoing issues and dismantles
others after a specific topic is studied
and actions are taken.
The legislature gives general guide
lines for the issues the committees
should consider, Summers said, but
individual members may also suggest
issues they want to be addressed.
Summers said the legislature
created several new committees this
year, including committees to study
North Carolina's pre-school educa
tion program, a worker training trust
fund, sports law and public hospitals.
Most committees will not report
back to the legislature until its 1989
session, since the 1988 session will
deal primarily with budget matters,

Kuncl said there are 6,500 to 6,600
students who live in University
housing. Of that number, he said
approximately 2,800 are freshmen,
while about 2,000 are sophomores.
Clark said he was pleased with the
"People just don't understand
what's really happening (during the
lottery process)," he said. "And if they
do, they aren't made aware of their
opportunities. If we had jumped right
into guaranteeing housing for sopho
mores, it could possibly have been
seen as short-sighted."

About 50 students choose to study
and relax in the Lutheran Campus
Center. The center, accessible to
students involved in the church, also
has a kitchen stocked with snacks.
Another place for students to study
is the Presbyterian Campus Minis
try's student center on Henderson
The Rev. Rebecca Reyes, Presby
terian Campus Ministry, said the
student center allows students a place
to study during exams, and a study
break is planned for Wednesday, Dec.
9, from 1 1 p.m. until 1 a.m. The break
will include munchies, as well as foot
and back massages.
Students can also study at the Hillel
Foundation house on Cameron
Avenue and at the Weslev FnnnHa-
tion on Pittsboro Street. The New
man Center, also located on Pittsboro
Street, will be open for studying 24
hours a day during exams.

prove to be unconstitutional, he said
he definitely thinks that arenas should
be allowed to conduct searches.
"To say that there's no reason to
search suspicious people at concerts
is nonsense," Beatty said. "Buildings
should be allowed to search anyone
they feel is suspicious."
