Two referendums dealing with
allocations of student activities fees
will be placed on the campus election
ballot Feb. 16 as a result of actions
taken Wednesday by Student Con
The total number of referendums
on the ballot is now six.
One referendum will ask students
if their student activities fees should
be used to fund the Carolina Gay and
The other referendum will ask for
a $1 increase in student fees for the
fall 1988 and spring 1989 semesters,
to purchase new equipment for
Student Television (STV).
Referendums may be placed on the
ballot either by a vote of Student
Congress or with a petition signed by
10 percent of the student body

Election officials refused a request
from student body presidential can
didate Keith Poston that would have
allowed him to exceed the official
campaign spending limit of $400.
Poston said Thursday he would
appeal the decision.
Poston said he requested the
increase because he needs to replace
a large number of his campaign
posters. Over 350 of the 500 posters
have been removed from campus
buildings since Jan. 24, he said.

Ticketron officials said Thurs

the Smith Center's request to

Wednesday that they were not
going to change the disclaimer.

for North Carolina and Virginia

still planned to change the disclai

Smith sat tight as he watched the
eighth-ranked Tar Heels squander
most of a 1 5-point lead, opting to wait
for the upcoming TV timeout instead
of calling one of his own to reverse

the CGLA referendum.
Bailey said he will present the
petition to the Elections Board so it
can be placed on the ballot. The
results of the referendum will be non
binding. McNeill said he thinks most stu
dents will vote to defund the CGLA.
"About 95 percent of those who
signed the petition said they will go
out and vote to defund the CGLA,"
But Rob Friedman, speaker of the
congress, said students should sup
port CGLA funding.
"Students should vote against it
(defunding the CGLA) because it
singles out a group," Friedman said.

blacks in the '50s, it would have

Students and faculty expressed
concerns about a proposed revision
of the pass fail system at a public
hearing Thursday sponsored by the
educational policy committee.
If the proposal is passed by Faculty
Council, students would set a target
grade for any course they declare
pass fail. If students reach or exceed
the target grade they set, their target
grade will appear on their records.
If students fall short of the target
grade, they would receive a "P" or
A second part of the proposal
would prevent students with less than
12 graded academic hours from
declaring a course pass fail.
