Faculty vote to upgrade Women's Stuldies Program
Staff Writer
Members of the Faculty Council
approved a proposal Friday to
upgrade the Women's Studies Pro
gram to an independent curriculum
with a Bachelor's Degree in Women's
The proposal, presented by Gillian
Cell, dean of the College of Arts and
Sciences, will now be forwarded to
the General Administration of the 16
campus UNC system, Judith Bennett,
acting director of Women's Studies,
said Wednesday.
A Women's Studies curriculum
cannot be established at UNC until
the recommendation receives the
General Administration's approval,
Bennett said.
Bennett estimated that the pro
posal will be accepted no later than
July, 1989.
"It will be possible for people to
graduate with a degree in Women's
Studies in 1990, possibly 1989,"
Bennett said.
Undergraduates, graduate students
and faculty members will benefit from
the establishment of a Women's
Studies Curriculum, she said.
As the Women's Studies program
now exists, a "major" in Women's
Studies is represented as a major in
Interdisciplinary Studies, Bennett
Accord ing to U niversity guidelines,
no students majoring in
Interdisciplinary Studies may double
Because of these regulations, many
students abandon their interest in
Women's Studies so that they may
pursue double majors in other areas,
she said.
The establishment of a Women's
Studies Curriculum would create a
Bachelor of Arts degree in Women's
Studies and would also allow students
to double major with Women's
Studies, Bennett said.
The curriculum would also posi
tively affect graduate students, Ben
nett said. The curriculum in Women's
Studies would make it easier to offer
graduate-level courses in Women's
Studies, while also helping to estab
lish a graduate-level minor in Wom
en's Studies, she said.
According to a report submitted to
Dean Cell by Bennett, "more than 1 25
members of UNC-CH faculty are
now associated with Women's Stu
dies, but their association is neces
sarily informal and unrecognized by
the University."
If the Women's Studies program
is recognized as a curriculum, faculty
members would become cross-
appointed with the Women's Studies
Curriculum. The cross-appointment
of faculty would permit two depart
ments to control the teaching time
of faculty members.
"You must control faculty time to
staff courses, and to have cross
appointed faculty, you must be a
curriculum," Bennett said.
Bennett attributed the recent pro
gress of the proposal to Dean Cell
and to undergraduates who were
concerned with their inability to
double major in Women's Studies.
Carrboro aldermen split vote
on proposal for land zonin;
Staff Writer
The Carrboro Board of Alderman
were split down the middle when they
voted Tuesday on the adoption of a
zoning alternative for the town's
transition area land.
The transition area is land that is
primarily north Carrboro and
requires joint planning for zoning
between the town and Orange
County, Carrboro planner Ann
Weeks said.
"This is the only place in North
Carolina where this type of situation
with joint planning of transition areas
is taking place," Weeks said. "It
provides for the orderly growth of the
The board considered three alter
natives that reflect the spectrum of
ways in which the town could grow
in the transitional area. Weeks said.
They disagreed that some of the
proposed zoning in Alternative One
would have allowed for more devel
opment than in Alternative Three.
"The tie was between Alternative
One and Three," Weeks said. "Alter
native One would minimize urban
sprawl and keep the town's character
compact and with a sense of old
community. We don't want to spread
things out."

Mayor Eleanor Kinnaird voted for
Alternative One. The other aldermen
voted against the proposal.
"I . like the alternative because it
provides for a little higher density and
is more economical for the town in
terms of transportation and the like,"
Marshall said.
Weeks said that the proposals
included in Alternative Three were
not dense enough for preserving the
community. "It would not promote
the other goals of the town including
transportation, sewer service and fire
protection," she said.

Alternative Three. Kinnaird, Mar

The public hearing for the joint
planning agreement is scheduled for
April 12. The agreement becomes
effective when each town comes up
with a zoning scheme for those areas,
Weeks said.
Businessman cluurged with
eight counts of embezzlement
Staff Writer
A Chapel Hill businessman was
charged Monday with embezzling
more than $1 million from clients
of his investment and insurance
Guilford T. Waddell III, 38,
faces eight counts of embezzle
ment, three counts of obtaining
property by false pretenses and
three counts of security violations,
Orange-Chatham District Attor
ney Carl Fox said.
Waddell's holdings include the
Waddell Investment Group Inc.,
Waddell Jenmar Securities Inc.
and Waddell Properties Inc.
Waddell initially contacted the
district attorney's office in January
about the missing funds. "My guess
is that he thought it would all come
to light anyway," Fox said.
Waddell voluntarily went to
State Bureau of Investigation
agents in Hillsborough Monday.
"We asked him to turn himself in
and he did," Fox said.
A hearing was held Tuesday in
Chapel Hill District Court to
possibly reduce Waddell's bond of
$180,000. Attorneys for Waddell
requested that bond be reduced to
$50,000, but Judge Stanley Peele
ruled to set bond at $150,000.
Fox said he pushed to keep the
bond at $180,000. "I did not want
bond reduced because of the
number of charges, his ties to the
community and the amount of
money involved," he said.
Waddell was unable to post
bond and has spent the last two
nights in the Orange County jail
in Hillsborough.
Of the $1 million Waddell
allegedly embezzled from his
clients, sums of $600,000 and
$300,000 were taken from two local
women, Fox said. "The chances
that these women and others will
be reimbursed is practically nil," he
"I could not tell you exactly what
the money was being spent on,"
Fox said, referring to the missing
funds. "I'm sure it went numerous

body treasurer at UNC, Waddell
also served as treasurer of the
General Alumni Association until
he resigned last month.
Association Director Douglas
Dibbert said Waddell's position
was voluntary and did not involve
the handling of alumni funds. "He
did not have the opportunity nor
the responsibility to handle funds,"
he said.
A probable cause hearing on
Waddell's charges is scheduled for
March 23. If convicted of all
charges, Waddell could face up to
126 years in prison, Fox said.
Student discount program in the works
Senior Writer
A discount program that could
save students up to $500 will be
sponsored by Student Government's
Executive Branch next year, govern
ment officials said Wednesday.
Free consumer savings cards,
organized by United Savings Asso
ciates in Virginia, will be distributed
to UNC students, faculty and staff.
The cards will allow them to receive
special discounts from local busi
nesses, executive assistant Joe Andro
naco said.
"This (the card) is really going to
allow students to save a lot of mlinev
next year," Andronaco said. "Stu
dents are going to be able to save
money at no cost to either them or
student government."
The wallet-sized cards, which are
good for one year, will contain a
listing of participating area businesses
and the discounts they will offer.
About j 00 colleges and universities
use the cards as well as about 50 major
corporations and military bases, said
Connie Ew;ng, United Savings Asso
ciates office manager.

"I feel the publicity of having their
companies' names on the cards will
cause students to pay more attention
to them," he said. "This card will
definitely benefit both students and
area businesses."
Ewing said the seven-year-old
company tries to get advertising from
a wide range of businesses.
"We like getting a nice variety of
businesses so that everyone can
benefit from the cards," Ewing said.

Brian Bailey, student body presi
dent, said although he was a little
concerned when the company first
contacted him earlier this semester,
he thinks the cards could be an asset
to the student body.
"At first, I was a little leery about
the cards," Bailey said. "But, from
what I've heard from other univer
sities that have them, they seem to
really be valuable."

count program, Ewing said.
