South Africa's apartheid system
is not challenged because of
national and international false
information and propaganda, and
divestment is the only rational
method of eliminating it, a former
South African newspaper editor
told about 500 people in Memorial
Hall Sunday night.
Donald Woods, whose book
inspired the recent movie "Cry
Freedom," spoke about apartheid
and how the South African
government maintains the system.
The lecture was the first in a series
sponsored by the Carolina Union
: Forum Committee.
I Apartheid has been recognized
legally by the nation since 1948.

the system of apartheid from
growing up in South Africa. The

University Police administrators
said Thursday they are taking steps
to improve morale in the department,
but officers said they have not noticed
any significant changes in adminis

The department submitted a report
to Chancellor Paul Hardin in Sep

improvement of department morale.
Police department managers have

Rickie Gaffney, producer of "Good
Morning America," said Friday that
North Carolina was chosen as the site
of one of the programs because of
its importance as a pivotal Southern
state in the election. The University
itself was chosen not only for its
beauty, but also for its academic
tradition, she said.
"When I think of the cradles of
education in this country, there's
whether a student can be tried
without being present at the hearing.
However, Byrd said the Instrument
of Student Judicial Governance is
fairly clear on the issue.
"If the individual has been alerted
to the hearing, but chooses not to
come, the court has no choice but
to try him," he said.
McKinley was brought before the
court on four charges: obstructing the
normal operations of the University
as a result of a Feb. 23 incident at
the University Motor Inn, and
obstruction, trespassing and disor
derly conduct at an April 15 de
monstration at Hanes Hall.
As part of his defense, McKinley
planned to present information
concerning past illegal activities of the
CIA, but the board ruled not to allow

The UNC Board of Governors
unanimously passed a two-year, $3.2
billion budget Friday that includes a
20 percent increase in faculty salaries
and a 17 percent increase in out-of-state
But most of the funds for faculty
salary increases should be given to
chancellors at UNC-system institu

faculty, UNC-system president CD.
Spangler said Friday.
Spangler presented the budget
proposal and made his recommenda

The board's budget will go to
Governor Jim Martin to be included
in the budget he will present to the
General Assembly in January.
According to the budget, faculty
members at the 16 institutions in the
UNC system should receive a 12
percent increase for 1989-90 and an
8 percent increase for 1990-91, the
largest requested increases in several
years. The increases would require
appropriations of $67.9 million and
$114.5 million, respectively.

to hear my arguments. They're

avenues of appeal within the honor
