"The committee recommends that
the dean of the school be active and

The report also recommended that

The CIA has canceled its recruiting
session scheduled at the UNC School
of Law Tuesday and has decided not
to recruit on campus this semester,
Donald Boulton, dean of student
affairs, said Monday.
The CIA had planned to interview
tomorrow at the law school. Instead,
the interviews will be conducted at
an off-campus location, Boulton said.
The cancellation was due in part
to the protests of members of the CIA
Action Committee, some of whom
have been fasting to protest the
recruitment, Boulton said. But the
cancellation was not a result of
intervention by University adminis
trators, he said.
Chancellor Christopher Fordham
said Sunday that he did not believe
it would be appropriate to cancel the
CIA visit because it would comprom
ise the freedom of the campus.
"It is the business of the chancellor
to protect liberty and not to com
promise it," Fordham said. "I am not
judging the people who come here."

and said they do not oppose the event.
The golf course sponsors an annual
tournament on the same Friday as
the Burnout event, but Burnout
organizers have delayed the party's
proposed starting time in order to
accommodate the golf tournament.
The fraternity has also made plans
to have traffic and parking monitored
on roads running through the golf
UNC faculty criticize
system's drug policy
By MARK FOLK
The Faculty Council passed a
resolution Friday condemning the
Board of Governors system-wide
drug policy for being too punitive.
The penalties outlined in the
BOG system-wide drug policy,
adopted in January, limit the
power of campus-level administra
tors, the resolution said.
Craig Calhoun, associate pro
fessor of sociology and author of
the faculty resolution, said he
thinks the policy should be more
"This policy promotes punish
ment and retribution instead of
educational needs," Calhoun said.
"It also reduces the authqrity that
administrators should have."
The BOG policy, which affects
all 16 campuses in the UNC
system, calls on each university to
develop its own drug policy,
subject to minimum standards.

it is," Wileman said. "He (Brown) is
a very decent chap, but I think we
need a little more than that. He wants
us to be happy and he wants the
provost to happy. Those objectives
are at odds.
"Something has to give, and we
need a leader to make things give.

would get its act together. If the dean
can do that, (that's) anybody's guess."

been fasting since Feb. 9.
CIA recruiters called Kenneth
Broun, dean of the School of Law,
late Friday afternoon to cancel their
visit, Boulton said. Because Broun
was sick on Friday, no one was told
about the call until today when Broun
told Boulton, he said.
"I don't know for a fact why they
were motivated to change their
minds, but usually when there have
