dealings in a closed-session meeting
Ross Johnson, former RJR

documents made public in January
that in early 1988 Spangler had

The suggestion never developed
into anything more than a conceptual

The BOG holds a wide range of
opinions on whether there should be

Robert Jones, BOG chairman.
Some BOG members had
expressed concern about Spangler's
proposal to RJR-Nabisco and other
corporate involvement, Jones said.

Sisson said students must be willing
to give and take to improve commun
ication with the administration.
When the student body president
presents his ideas to administrative
officials, he must be sure his ideas
are beneficial to all concerned,
including students, faculty, staff and
administrators, Sisson said.
"The key in working with the
administration is trying to find
equitable solutions," he said.

Being involved with business has

causing a conflict of interest, Spangler
"These companies have been the
largest benefactors of education in the
South," he said. "They donate to
universities on a regular basis."
UNC benefits from his involve

"I don't know of any problems that
exist," he said.
The board is very positive about
the job Spangler is doing as president,

Candidates for Carolina Athletic
Association (CAA) president pre
sented their platforms and answered
questions at a forum at Carmichael
Residence Hall Wednesday night.
In her opening statement, Suzie
Saldi said homecoming would be her
priority as president, but also said
support for non-revenue sports and
increased intramural competition
with other schools are important
issues. Student buses for away foot
ball games would be a viable idea,
"I'm looking at all aspects of the
CAA, not just one or two," she said.
Bob D'Arruda said a non-revenue
should be a primary concern of the
student body president. By sending
administrators a formal biweekly
letter outlining student government's
long- and short-range goals, the
student body president could improve
communication, he said.
"We need to make the administra
tion feel safer about bringing the
issues to us," he said.
Loughran said the student body
president could improve communica
tion if he becomes more aware that
dealing with the administration is a
two-way street. The student body
president must prove to the admin

The pay raise controversy involves
the difference in proposed increases.
While Martin has suggested a 4.5
percent raise, the teachers have said
it will take an 8 to 9 percent increase
to bring salaries up to the national
average, which is $3,000 more than
the present rate. v
Each one percent increase would
cost $20 million per year, forcing the

Smith Center seats assigned to
Carolina Fever and athletic recruits
could be rotated to increase student
seats, and unused alumni seats could
also go to students, he said.
"If alumni don't show up for the
game, let a student sit in his or her
seat," he said.
Lisa Frye said her main focus
would be to increase support for non
revenue sports, beginning with a
istration that he is an advocate of all
students, he said.
"When the student body president
goes to the administration, he or she
has to give the knowledge that the
whole student body is behind him,"
he said. .
