UNC Chancellor Paul Hardin
surprised members of the Chapel Hill
Coalition for the Freedom of Dissent
(CFD) Thursday by personally
addressing them at a rally on the steps
of South Building.
The CFD was holding the rally to
demand that Hardin "take a stand"
on campus activist Dale McKinley's
hearing before the Graduate Student
Court. CFD members had been told
that Hardin would not be present at
the rally because of a Board of

CFD members refused to disclose
the specifics of their demands.
During the rally, Hardin said he
must maintain his objectivity because
any honor court case may be
appealed to the chancellor, so he
could not comment on McKinley's
case. But he said he would try to

She said suggestions to move the
shelter out of town are unacceptable.
"To locate a shelter out in the
boondocks is not going to be much
help to them," Layden said.
Jessee said the task force is looking
at about 14 to 16 possible locations
for the shelter, including a cooper
ative farm, the old A&P supermarket
building and an Airport Road prop
erty. Also on the list are sites in
downtown Chapel Hill and Carr
boro, including another building on
Rosemary Street, she said.
"It's probably going to come down
to about three (sites)," Jessee said.
The shelter needs to be in a central
location, she said.
Zoning laws now allow for a shelter
only in the downtown areas of Chapel
Hill and Carrboro. Placing a shelter
outside these areas would require a
special-use permit which Moran
said the shelter would never get
because of community opposition.

sites under consideration. Greenlaw,
across from the Undergraduate
Library, could be opened for the
study area at 2 a.m. when the library
closed, Hildebolt said. The study
place would close at 8 a.m. when
Greenlaw opens for classes.
Hildebolt also cited the building's
safety. The stairwells in Greenlaw can
be locked to deny access to the second
floor. "Greenlaw, except for the first
floor, is a fortress," he said.
Sandy Rierson, executive assistant
for academic affairs, noted that
Greenlaw is only one of the places
under consideration. She mentioned
the Student Union as another pos
it has taken for progress to be made.
On Oct. 5 the BSM passed a
resolution demanding that a site for
the BCC be chosen by Jan. 31, 1989,
and that construction on the center
begin by Jan. 31, 1990. .
The BSM's timetable was men
tioned at the meeting, but it was not
a major issue, Crawford said "It was
so crystal clear that we were moving
and at great speed," she said. "We
were not going to be bogged down
with the past and negative publicity,
and (we were going to) get to the heart
of the matter."
The committee established its own

the underlying issues."
Hardin said he respects the CFD's
sincerity and he treasures freedom of
speech and dissent, but those who
dissent must respect the rights of
"There is a difference between
dissent and interfering in the rights
of others," he said.
Hardin said he considers the
opinions of many different groups of
people when making decisions, but
he will not let pressure from any
group interfere with his decisions.
"We (administrators) listen and we
care about what everybody thinks,"
Hardin declined to comment on
whether the Board of Trustees was
involved in McKinley's hearing.
McKinley was brought before the
Graduate Student Court on charges
of obstructing official University
business, trespassing and disorderly
conduct. The charges stemmed from
a Feb. 23 incident at the University
Motor Inn and an April 15 protest
against the presence of a CIA
recruiter in Hanes Hall.
McKinley walked out on his hear

"There arent a lot of places that

Pollitzer said the IFC conducted
two searches for alternate sites and
participated in the 1985 mayor's
search committee that selected the
current location. She said there are
no other existing buildings which
meet the IFC's qualifications.
Jessee said the task force is con
cerned that the location may not be
serving its clients in the most dignified
way. She said the location is noisy
and improperly air-conditioned,
catches fumes from the street and may
embarrass homeless people by put
ting them in the middle of town where
they are very visible.
Andresen said if she were homeless
and had nothing to do with her time
she "would prefer not to spend it on
the busiest corner in town."
But Moran said, "I think the only
way you can answer that question is

would be a demand for the all-night
study area, but the extent of the
demand is unknown. "We have no
idea of the dimensions," he said.
Hildebolt agreed that there is a
timetable at the meeting, and Craw
ford said it was likely that the BCC's
new building would be completed by
the original deadline set by the BSM.
Attending the meeting were Perry;
Crawford; Donald Boulton, vice
chancellor and dean of student
affairs; Robert Eubanks, chairman of
the Board of Trustees; and Kevin
Martin, student body president.
Perry said he was encouraged by
the outcome of the meeting.
"At this point, we're back on
schedule with the Black Cultural
Center," he said.
Perry said the four BCC commit

he could not discuss CIA activities
as evidence in his defense.
McKinley is serving a 21-day
sentence in the Orange County Jail
for his participation in a CIA protest
at Hanes Hall Oct. 28, 1987.
UNC law student Joel Segal, CFD
member, asked Hardin if he would
consider meeting with students every
five or six weeks to discuss issues like
the CIA interviews on campus and
child care for students and employees.
Hardin said he already meets with
student leaders on a regular basis and
often goes to the dining halls, where
he talks with students.
"I don't want to appear to be
inaccessible," Hardin said.
CFD members said after the rally
that they were surprised that Hardin
spoke to them, but they disagreed on
the significance of his appearance.
" We've been asking him to meet
with us for over two months to discuss
issues concerning student activism,"
Segal said. "He said it wasn't his job
to deal with it. What does that tell
you about Paul Hardin?"
Student groups will continue to ask

Moran said Jessee was the only
member of the task force who had
visited the shelter.
The old municipal building was
built in the 1930s and has housed
municipal offices, the police depart
ment, jail cells and a fire company.
It is leased to the IFC at no cost by
the town. Chapel Hill also pays the
utilities for the building.
The lease expires in 1990 but may
be extended to 1992.
Assistant Town Manager Ron
Secrist said the building was last
appraised in the early 1980s at
$400,000. Proposed renovations will
cost $550,000, he said.
Secrist said Chapel Hill will pro

money toward renovating the struc
