Costs for decorating the base

about $2,500, Schmier said. The
lack of a corporate sponsor and
problems with T-shirt sales contrib
uted to problems, he said.
Aside from a $500 grant from
the Residence Hall Association,
revenue came from ticket and T
shirt sales, Schmier said.

they were pleased with the trans

Students called this the most
frightening part of the tour, as well

The UNC Board of Trustees
refused to comment on the case of
graduate student and campus activist
Dale McKinley after members of the
Chapel Hill Coalition for the Free
dom to Dissent (CFD) confronted the
board at its Friday meeting.
After hearing the demands and
going into a closed session, the board
unanimously passed a resolution to
decline to comment further and to
defend and support the First Amend
ment rights of all persons.
At the meeting, Ken Sandler, a
graduate student and CFD member,
read an open letter condemning the
board's handling of the McKinley
case and accusing board members of
denying McKinley a fair trial because
of a BOT resolution passed last spring
concerning student activists. CFD

When the trademark licensing
program was created in 1982, 50
percent of the money was intended
for athletic department scholarships

has been using its half of the money
for its intended purpose, an oversight
caused the other half to go to an
unrestricted endowment fund instead
of the Student Aid Office.

received in a January trial.
McKinley walked out on his Grad
uate Student Court trial Oct. 20
because the court would not allow
him to submit evidence against the
CIA as part of his defense.
McKinley was brought before the
court on four charges: obstructing the
normal operations of the University
during a Feb. 23 incident at the
University Motor Inn and obstruc
tion, trespassing and disorderly
conduct at an April 15 demonstration
in Hanes Hall.
The CFD letter referred to a
resolution which called anti-CIA
protesters a "bad lot" guilty of
committing "violent, terrorist acts."
The resolution written by trustee
John Pope was issued on Feb. 26.
The student court appellate process
stipulates that appeals would be
heard first by an appeals committee,
then go to the chancellor. A further
appeal most likely would go to the

Friday, requests that the balance of
the funds from the Trademark
Licensing Program, estimated at
$321,000 plus interest, be transferred
from the Endowment Fund into an
Institutional Trust Fund created
solely for student scholarships.
The resolution must be approved
by the Endowment Board, which will
meet in November.
Eleanor Morris, Student Aid direc
tor, said if the money is made
available to Student Aid, they will
develop a proposal for the distribu

have to be approved by the Scho

by the Downtown Association, there
are more than 250 businesses on
Franklin and Rosemary streets from

so people will have a reason to come
into town," Julian said.
People are talking now about the

it will end up as a strip of student-

Domino's being a national com

The prepared CFD statement
contained four demands:

enumerated in the Student Honor
a "that the BOT refrain from
meddling in the affairs of Student

prejudice the outcome of the trial
"that the BOT and chancellor

forum wherein student and faculty

Student Body President Kevin
Martin said he was pleased with the
BOT's reaction to the resolution. The
trustees passed the resolution
unanimously and with very little
discussion, which shows a "pretty
good level of trust between the
students and the trustees," Martin
The trustees probably remembered
the original purpose of the funds from
the licensing program, Martin said,
and were unaware that the Student
Aid office has not had access to the

But the service is not excluding any
other pizza businesses from operating
on campus, Dux said.
"Anybody can still deliver on
campus; they're not excluded from
campus," he said. "All we're doing
is including Domino's in the pro
grams we're running on campus."
Not all pizza deliverers agreed that
the service would hurt their business.

instead of theirs later. We're going
