The UNC campus will once again
open its doors to a distinguished guest
as Louis "Chip" Neil, publisher of
the U.S. version of Time magazine,
visits Tuesday.
The visit is sponsored by the Frank
Hawkins Kenan Institute of Private
Enterprise as part of the Executive in
Residence program at the School of
Business Administration.
"The Executive in Residence pro
gram brings executives throughout
the business community to the Uni
versity," said Mike Collins, Director
of Public Relations for the business
school.
Past visitors to UNC have included
Andrew McNally, chief executive
officer of Rand McNally, and Paul
Oreffice, chairman of the Dow
Chemical Corporation, Collins said.

Student Congress will decide the

The special election comes as a re

of the University's 18 districts.
In District 16, former representative
G. Q. Hayes resigned. In District 18,
former representative Thornton Long,
who is no longer enrolled at the Univer

Congress OKs Spangler's BOG plan

Student Congress passed a bill Thurs
day in support of UNC-system Presi
dent CD. Spangler's recommendations
to the UNC Board of Governors (BOG)
concerning the importance of academ
ics in the athletic departments of all
UNC-system schools.
Mark Bibbs (Dist. 12), sponsor of
the bill, said that by passing the bill,
Student Congress was showing its
support of Spangler's recommendations
and its feelings that there should be an
emphasis on academics in athletics.
. "I feel that we, as the student govern
ment of Carolina, the first state univer
sity and in my opinion the best, should
be the first to endorse a recommenda
tion like this," Bibbs said.
Spangler's recommendations are a
result of the investigation by the Poole
Commission into alleged academic
abuses, illegal drug use and receipt of
improper gifts and payments by N.C.
State University basketball team
members.
4The evidence is clear that the aca
demic processes and standards of N.C.
State University have been misused in
a number of instances to the benefit of
some individual basketball players,"
Spangler told the BOG last month.
Spangler's recommendations include
the enactment of the NCAA's Proposi
tion 48, which requires athletes to have
a minimum score of 700 on the SAT;
the instigation of freshman eligibility
rules and mandatory drug testing; and
the prohibition of the same person

Collins added that Neil's trip
would allow students to ask any
questions they have, such as about
his day-to-day activities.

also a senior vice president of the

He said he is particularly pleased that
this year the number of vacant posi

and head coach. Freshman eligibility
rules would apply only to basketball
and football players because these teams
are the only ones that bring in revenue.
Bibbs said although there was no
negative debate when the resolution
was presented, there were some ques
tions concerning the freshman eligibil
ity rule and drug testing. Differing from
Spangler's call for mandatory drug
testing, the resolution passed by Stu
dent Congress calls for a "self-imposed,
voluntary drug testing policy" by the
athletes.
"The drug testing policy was changed
because I feel that with mandatory drug
testing we may run into constitutional
problems and the 'mandatory' part
bothers me," Bibbs said. "It would be
difficult to get the students to support it
if it's a mandatory rule. "

This Saturday, UNC-CH Student
Congress Speaker Gene Davis was
elected president of the UNC Associa
tion of Student Governments (ASG),
an organization made up of delegates
from the 16 UNC-system schools.
"As ASG president, it's my goal to
assure equal opportunities and access
to all UNC-system schools," Davis said.
Davis is the first non-student body
president ever elected to the post. He
replaces former Student Body Presi
dent Kevin Martin and is the third
consecutive UNC-CH representative
elected to the post.
ASG is interested in moving toward
a more unified UNC system, he said.
Adopting sister institutions in the sys
tem is one possibility for better rela
tions among the diverse schools in North
Carolina, Davis said.

It looks as if sophomores will once
again be guaranteed housing for the
1 990 fall semester, said Residence Hall
Association (RHA) President Liz
Jackson.
"Last year there was guaranteed
housing for freshmen and sophomores,
and as far as I know that is still in effect
for this year."
Although freshmen have always been
assured on-campus housing, last year
was the first time that sophomores were
rules would affect recruitment, but in
discussing the situation with UNC head
football coach Mack Brown, he learned
the NCAA is also working on a fresh
man eligibility rule. If the NCAA de
veloped such a rule all schools would
have an equal chance at recruitment.
BOG member Roderick Adams said
that in general, Spangler's recommen
dations have been approved, but there
are specific details that will have to be
ironed out.
"The BOG will be sensitive to any
recommendations made by the govern
mental organization on any of the
campuses," Adams said.
Bibbs said: "Hopefully, the resolu
tion will inform the student body, the
Board of Trustees, the chancellor, the
other 15 schools and ultimately the
BOG that we are concerned and that we
endorse President's Spangler's recom
mendations with the exception of the
drug testing policy."

Davis said more autonomy for the
schools within the system, as suggested
by Chancellor Paul Hardin in his recent
proposal to the Board of Governors, is
in opposition to the original idea be
hind uniting state schools.
The goals set for the upcoming year
are high, particularly UNC-CH Stu
dent Body President Brien Lewis'
Tuition Defense Initiative, Davis said.
"ASG has made a strong stand.
Certainly some of the goals may seem
ambitious, but they're no less ambi
tious than the ultimate goal which we
all believe in student empowerment."
Davis is a diligent worker and a great
lobbyist with good connections, said
UNC-Charlotte Student Body Presi
dent Michael Wilson, western region
vice president of ASG.
That will be his one shining point,"
Wilson said.
Davis is also a believer in hands-on
the professions, a library of informa
tion and personal experience to answer
student questions.
"We are the information brokers in
regard to health professions," said Tony
Hilger, a General College adviser.
Interest in the health professions is
high, according to a survey of entering
freshmen compiled by the office. Ev
ery freshman received a questionnaire,
and 850 of them showed interest in
health as a career.

granted this privilege, she said.
This was possible because there was
exactly enough housing for the number
of freshman and sophomore applicants,
Jackson said.
This year RHA is going to work to
involve residents in community serv
ice projects and will look at many dif
ferent area activities for potential in
volvement, Jackson said.
"The governmental board of RHA
has decided to put an emphasis on
community services," said Scott Bur
kett, governor of Hinton James Resi
dence Hall.
B urkett said community in vol vement
was very important because it could be
beneficial to both the community and
the students.
To promote this community service,
RHA is encouraging the area govern
ments to work with other campus or
ganizations, including the Black Stu
dent Movement (BSM), Jackson said.

leadership, Wilson said. Davis will stay
involved with other schools in the sys
tem, not just UNC-CH, Wilson said.
The goals for ASG this year are to
effectively handle relations with the
BOG and the state legislature, Wilson
said. "A good example of us getting
caught with our pants down is the tui
tion increase."
Wilson said he and Davis are both
champions of small schools in the sys

Hilger said many students have
misconceptions about their chances of
getting into medical or dental school.
They may believe a high grade point
average, a major in science and an
impressive list of activities are essen
tial. But medical schools look for well
rounded students with a variety of in
terests, he said.
Many students who have used the
service report complete satisfaction.
Working with the BSM is important
to the RHA, Burkett said. "We want to
improve black student relations within
the residence halls."
One thing Jackson hopes to see this
year is a more consistent type of area
government with more people getting
involved. In the past, the RHA may not
have done a good enough job of letting
students know how they can become
involved, she said.
