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.

We're happy to have some Pollsites to By LYNETTE BLAIR Staff Writer Student Congress will decide the location of pollsites for an Oct. 10 special election at a Rules and Judici ary Committee meeting Wednesday night. The special election comes as a re sult of representative vacancies in two 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 sity, was dismissed by Student Con gress. Congress Speaker Gene Davis said persons interested in holding either postion need only to live in the district they wish to represent and be a full time, paying student. Both districts are foroff-campus undergraduate students. Davis also said in the four years he has been with congress there has al Congress OKs Spangler's BOG plan By STEPHANIE JOHNSTON Staff Writer 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 WREA sea This Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 19 & 20, when you present your current UNC I.D card with this coupon at the Brueggefs Bagel Bakery on West Franklin St. in Chapel Hill, you'll receive a bagel of your choice with cream cheese for FREE!

Collins added that Neil's trip would allow students to ask any questions they have, such as about his day-to-day activities. Neil became publisher of Time magazine U.S. in April 1989, and is also a senior vice president of the Time, Inc. Magazine Co. Neil will speak to several classes Tuesday, Collins said. At 1 1 a.m. he will attend Carol Reuss's magazine and writing editing class. At 2:45 p.m. he will speak to Erika Lindemann's English 298 class. "We are very much looking for ward to his visit," Lindemann said. Neil will also meet with undergradu ates in Greenlaw lounge later that afternoon to discuss future careers in publication, Lindemann said. Enthusiasm from Neil's visit has spread not only through the business school but throughout campus.

He said he is particularly pleased that this year the number of vacant posi tions are fewer than in years past. 'There's usually about four or five seats open. It expresses the fact that there is an increased interest in serving the student body as a Student Congress representative." Sam Bagenstos (Dist. 14) said there tended to be a problem in filling seats for off-campus districts. "It's harder to get the information to them." Only students living in districts 16 and 18 will be eligible to vote for rep resentatives in October. The entire student body will be able to vote on two referendums. The first calls for gender neutraliza tion in the constitution by changing all the "he's" to "he or she." The other referendum calls for adding three members to The Daily Tar Heel board of directors. holding the office of athletic director 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. " Bibbs said there were also questions concerning how freshman eligibility Get a job. Give a job.

TlaL otto wm urac 0 104 West Franklin St., Chapel Hill 967-5248 Speaker By NANCY WYKLE Staff Writer 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. Office offers advice By CHRIS HELMS Staff Writer Students interested in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, nursing, medical technology or any other health field may find that the Health Professions Advising Office is for them. The office, located in 201-D Steele Building, offers advice on preparing for careers in health, getting into the student's school of choice and finding summer internships. Advisers draw on contacts within HA says By BETH MECKLEY Staff Writer 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." w v - k. A. - CfcP Davis elected to ASG post 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. guaranteed housin 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.

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 tem. "State and Carolina have always been the voice per se of students in North Carolina." The other students in the state need to be involved, Wilson said. Other officers elected were N.C. Central representative Fred Freely as central region vice president, Pembroke State University representative Chris Vaughn as east region vice president and UNCC representative Mark Miller as treasurer. in health professions 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. "(In the past) we tended not to in Before class. After class. During class?
