Betsy Taylor, student services

The forms must be signed by
a departmental or General College
adviser before students can turn
the forms in at Hanes Hall.
Some advisers, including
General College advisers, require
a conference with the student, but
others will simply sign the form
if the student does not have any
questions, Taylor said.
"A lot of kids come (to their
adviser) just to make sure they
know what they need to graduate,"
Taylor said. "Others just want
their adviser to sign the form."
Advisers can tell students what
courses they must take, how many
hours they need and what grade
point average they need in order

Assistant University Editor
Still video cameras, one of the
newest developments in photographic
technology, were demonstrated Tues
day for the first time on a college
campus during a seminar series
sponsored by the UNC School of
Journalism and the Smithsonian
Richard Beckman, UNC associate
journalism professor, said the new
still video technology involves shoot
ing photographs onto a computer
like disk which can hold up to 50
color images to be viewed on a
computer terminal. The photographs
are then printed on an apparatus
similar to a computer color printer.
The still video technology gives
photographers an advantage over
film photography by allowing them
to print a large number of pictures
immediately and to erase a disk and
reuse it, Beckman said. "And you are
not using up valuable resources," he

TheJPit looked and sounded like
a Democratic convention Tuesday;
with balloons and signs waving in the
air for a cheering crowd as state
Democratic candidates gathered for
an hour-long "unity rally."
About 450 people crowded the Pit
to hear and cheer on the candidates
with such chants as "Duke in '88,"
"Where Was George," and "Here we
go, Jordan, here we go." Their cheers
were often interrupted by "Bush in
88" and "Boston Harbor" from
George Bush supporters in the crowd.
Gubernatorial candidate Bob Jor
dan; Tony Rand, candidate for
lieutenant governor; U.S. Rep. David
Price and most other statewide
Democratic candidates spoke on their
candidacies before Arkansas Gov.
Bill Clinton spoke to endorse Michael
Dukakis for president. The rally was .
organized by the UNC Young Demo
crats with other colleges from around
Recently-elected Mr. UNC Cedric
Brown began the rally with the pledge
of allegiance and sang the national
anthem before Price spoke.
"We're here to tell you victory is
in the air," said Price, who is running
against Tom Fetzer for the 4th
District seat. "We are going to win
because we're united up and down
the ticket. ... We are going to win
because we're right or the issues."-
The Democratic Party stands for
inclusive and constructive policies
and cares about social justice, "which
has not arrived until we bring every
body along for a better life," Price

Inflation, unemployment and
interest rates are down from 1980, but
average hourly wages have dropped,
Clinton said. Fewer people can afford
to go to college, and the budget deficit
is higher than ever, he said.
"This country is not competitive in
education and economic growth,"
Clinton said. "We are electing a
president in 1988 to deal with some
of the most critical problems America
has faced, and we're making our

States must educate its people and
diversify its economy, Clinton said.
Dukakis' record on education and
economic growth in Massachusetts
shows he knows how to deal with
these issues, he said.
"Dukakis did a better job of
bringing jobs to poor people and the
community than any other governor,
including me," Clinton said. "If
Dukakis is elected, the kids in my
state will have better education, a
better chance of getting a job; and
America will have a better future."
Jordan spoke of education as the
key to North Carolina's future. Jobs,
including those in industry, will

said. "I think people need to get

The candidates were pleased with
the UNC rally. "I feel very enthused
about the support I'm seeing," Price
said. "I haven't seen that many people
