A substantial portion of the 20
percent faculty salary increase pro
posed last week in the 1989-91 UNC
system budget should be earmarked
for merit pay, UNC professors and
administrators said Wednesday.
The budget, presented last week by
UNC-system President CD.
Spangler to the Board of Governors
Budget and Finance Committee, will
be voted on Friday by the full board.
The board will determine how much
of the salary increase will be allocated
toward general salary increases and
how much will be allocated for merit
But the state legislature has final
approval of the budget, and it could
mandate that the increase go toward
an across-the-board salary increase

After having some time to reflect
on Tuesday night's festivities,
almost everyone involved is calling
the Franklin Street Extravaganza
a resounding success.
The Carolina Athletic Associa
tion (CAA) and Downtown Chapel
Hill Association organized the
event, which turned the 100 block
of Franklin Street into a land of
activities for all ages. .
, There were the traditional car
nival games and food, along with
music from area bands and the
night's big finale.

From church lady impressions to
Carolina rap, contestants for Mr.
. UNC displayed a wide variety of
talent Wednesday night before a
crowd of about 130 in Gerrard Hall.
Angela Hampton, mistress of
ceremonies, said the purpose of the
competition was "to find the man
with the best sense of Carolina spirit."
The winner, Cedric Brown, a senior
public policy analysis major from
Winston-Salem, won the crowd over
with his introduction in a high
pitched Michael Jackson voice and
his rap about Carolina football. ,
"I am tremendously thrilled, and
this is beyond anything I ever
expected this year," Brown said.
Although Mr. UNC doesn't have
any specific duties except riding the
Homecoming float, Brown said he
would like to get involved in the
Carolina Athletic Association and act
as a symbol of Carolina spirit.
The judges made their decisions
based on creativity, originality,
humor, spirit, poise and audience
rapport in the four categories: intro
duction, original cheers, improvisa
tions and talent competition.
, Matthew Burke, a senior spon
sored by Alpha Chi Sigma chemistry
fraternity, performed several impres
sions and received second place.
Burke's impression of "the church
lady" from Saturday Night Live was
the crowd's favorite, although Rocky
Balboa, Ronald Reagan and Pee Wee
Herman also elicited positive
responses from the audience.
John Whichard, also known as
"Big John," performed as a bug
exterminator from the Rid-A-Jacket
Bug Company. In the talent compe
tition, he surprised the audience by
breathing fire with the aid of liquor
and a torch. Whichard, who was
sponsored by Lambda. Chi Alpha
fraternity, received third place.
The other contestants were Wayne!
Cole, a freshman sponsored by Avery
Residence Hall; Jurgen Buchenau, a
graduate student from West Ger
many sponsored by Student Con
gress; and Cameron Tew, a junior
sponsored by Carmichael Residence
Cole sang an emotional song about
friendship, while Buchenau
strummed his guitar to the "Carolina
Blues" during the talent competition.

Wegner said members of the group
have already started drafting a work
plan which breaks down what needs
to be done by the parties involved.
Wegner said she is optimistic the
group will be successful in its second
round of negotiations. The water sale
issue complicated the already difficult.
