the country's best new facility of 1987

cited the variety and attendance of

Board of Governors names
UNC-system acting secretary
By PATRICE JONES
The UNC Board of Governors has
named David "D.G." Martin to serve
as acting secretary for the UNC
system, administration officials said
Martin, 48, replaces John
Kennedy, who served as UNC-system
secretary from 1972 until he retired
last December 31.
Martin will serve until the presi
dent's search committee decides on
a permanent replacement.
UNC President CD. Spangler
recommended Martin for the acting
position. Spangler said Thursday he
was impressed with Martin because
he had many of the same qualities
that Kennedy had.
He has the ability to get board
members involved in the UNC sys
tem, Spangler said.
"The Board of Governors and the
Board of Trustees need to be
informed to make decisions about the
university," Spangler said.
The basic role of the UNC-system
secretary is to serve as a liaison
between the president's staff, the
Board of Governors and the Boards
and Campbell College, centered on
her husband's campaign platform.
Sen. Gore focuses on the Southern
states for the bulk of his support,
"I don't think we are going to hear
too much about New Hampshire
after this (the March 8 Super Tuesday
primary)," she said.
Sen. Gore is emphasizing his
knowledge about defense and foreign
policy issues and his liberal social
stands in his campaign, Gore said.

chairman, said Thursday Martin will
not be a secretary in the sense of only
being a stenographer.
"He was selected by Spangler for
his strong organizational skills, his
integrity and his interest in public
service," Carson said.
Martin said he took the job because
he thought it would be a challenge.
"The secretary of the university has
the opportunity to work closer than
anyone else with the Board of Gov
ernors and the executive staff of all
the other campuses," Martin said.
The opportunity to help shape
higher education policy for the state
is exciting and challenging, he said.
"I couldn't imagine turning down
the opportunity," Martin said.

About 100 students staged an

afternoon to show support for
CIA recruitment and opposition
to student funding of the Carolina

recent events such as a fast by

homosexual activists outside Sen.

Sophomore Trey Flautt, one of
