Martin calls for
20 percent rise
By Eric Longley
Staff Writer
Gov. Jim Martin last week proposed
a package of state fee increases and
budget cuts for 199 1-93 that included a
20 percent increase in tuition at UNC
system schools beginning next year.
Under Martin's tuition plan, which
he first proposed in his January State of
the State address, the Board of Trustees
of each institution in the UNC system
would be permitted to raise tuition up to
20 percent.
Matt Heyd, UNC-CH student body
president, said tuition should not be
raised when students are not in school.
"(It is) unacceptable to implement a
tuition increase over the summer, when
the students aren't prepared for it," he
The General Assembly is scheduled
to adjourn July 10. If legislators ap
prove a tuition increase by that time,
Heyd said there would be "huge logis
tical problems" involving the payment
of tuition due July 27. Students would
have little time to plan for the changes,
he said.
Of the $28 million Martin believes
would be raised from the increases, $7
million would be set aside for financial
in tuition rates
Rizzo, Sanders, Turner to resign as UNC administrators
By Ashley Fogle
Staff Wrhrr
In the latest wave of what seems to be
an administrative exodus from the Uni
versity, three more administrators will
leave their UNC posts in the next year.
Paul Rizzo, dean of the Kenan-Flagler
School of Business, will depart at the
end of the next school year. John Sand
ers, director of the Institute of Govern
ment, will step down as director July 1 ,
1992. John Turner, dean of the School
of Social Work, will retire next June.
Provost Dennis O'Connor said re
placement searches would begin soon.
No candidates are being considered yet
for any of the positions, he said.
"Search committees will be formed,
and probably with the exception of the
Institute of Government position, the
searches will be national," O'Connor
said. "The Institute of Government is a
rather unique North Carolina institu
tion, so the search will be statewide."

Court issues order restraining
summer congress indefinitely
By JoAnn Rodak
Staff Writer
Student Supreme Court Chief Jus
tice Mark B ibbs issued an order Tues
day shutting down the Summer Stu
dent Congress indefinitely after two
members filed a suit against the
speaker of congress.
Congress members Andrew Cohen
and Michael Kolb asked Bibbs to in
vestigate the legality of Speaker Tim
Moore's appointment of 1 1 people to
the summer congress, as well as vot
ing procedures used during the first
Summer Student Congress meeting
May 21.
At the meeting, congress passed a
resolution calling for the elimination
of student fee allocations to the Caro
lina Gay and Lesbian Association af
ter an hour and a half of contentious
debate. The resolution, sponsored by
Moore.Eric Pratt, Dist. 22, and four of
Moore's summer appointees, passed
8-5 with the help of five summer ap
pointees. During the meeting, several con
gress members and Student Body
President Matt Heyd questioned the
validity of the appointments, which
were not approved by the regular con
gress in the spring.
"Because of our concerns regard
Published reports quoted Martin as
saying that the aid was in accordance
with a recommendation by the UNC
Student Body Presidents' Association.
Heyd said the proposed grant was inad
equate and suggested that $9 million
may be a more appropriate figure.
Martin estimated that tuition ben
efits, enrollment costs and other opera
tion costs would use the $28 million he
expects the tuition increase would raise.
Heyd said tuition revenues would
not make up for cuts the General As
sembly had made in expenditures to the
University. Tuition revenue would "fill
the (budget) shortfall, not fill the cuts,"
he said.
Heyd criticized Martin's plan for not
calling for tax increases. Student lead
ers have proposed several tax increases
to avoid budget cuts, Heyd said, includ
ing a surtax on incomes of more than
$100,000 and a cigarette manufactur
ers' tax.
At a meeting with student represen
tatives in the spring, Martin spoke fa
vorably of a half-cent increase in the
sales tax.

be reached for comment.
Peter Topping, director of graduate
placement for the business school, said
the school's faculty was not surprised
by Rizzo's announcement that he would
"It's the end of his five-year term,"
Topping said. "We didn't expect him to
serve more than one. The time has come.
"It's tough for Paul, because he re
ally wanted to see the building com
pleted before he left, or at least have the
money in hand or ground broken."
Construction for a new business
school building behind the Kenan Cen
ter on Bowles Drive is expected to be
gin in 1992. The University has been a $15 million state appropria
tion for the building for more than a

dures used in last Tuesday's meeting

pointed people to the congress, we de
cided to seek judicial redress," Cohen
said Wednesday.
"I must emphasize that this has noth
ing to do with the substance regarding
the CGLA resolution, just the legality
of the procedure," he said. "It's not
what they did, it's how they did it."
Cohen was the most vehement oppo
nent of the resolution at the May 21
meeting. Kolb was not present at the
meeting. They filed the suit Saturday,
Bibbs said.
At the May 2 1 meeting, Moore said
the appointments were allowed because
Heyd, former speaker of congress, made
similar appointments to last summer's
congress. But Heyd had received the
regular congress' permission.
Bibbs ordered congress to cease all
political activity and cancel scheduled
meetings ofcommitteesorthe full body
until further notice from Bibbs. He or
dered congress and its committees not
to convene under any circumstances.
The order postponed a Finance Com
mittee meeting scheduled for Wednes-
day, during which The Daily Tar Heel's

Two other acts, a $200 donation to
a Student Congress unrestricted
scholarship fund and an $8 1 1 appro
priation to the UNC Pauper Players,
also were on the agenda for the com
mittee meeting.
Moore said the request for the
restraining order would hurt many
groups. "The Honor Court (appoin

therefore can't meet," he said. "The

Kevin Schwartz, DTH general
manager, said he was not concerned
about the delay of the Finance Com

him Wednesday that he would ask
Bibbs to approve the DTH budget.
"We have an agreement with

going to not get funded.

Council sets
By Amber Nimocks
Staff Writer
The Chapel Hill Town Council voted
in favor of setting the maximum legal
sound level at 70decibelsTuesday night,
defeating a proposed noise ordinance
that would have lowered the maximum
level with a permit from 75 to 65 deci
bels. The vote reversed the council's May
13 decision to set the maximum sound
level with a permit at 65 decibels.
The council voted 6-1 to accept the
amendment that had been recommended
by the Noise Monitoring Committee,
which had called for the 70-decibel
Council member Joyce Brown cast
the only dissenting vote. Council mem
bers Roosevelt Wilkerson and Julie
Andresen did not attend.
Without noise permits, daytime deci
bel levels between 8 a.m. and 1 1 p.m.
cannot exceed 60. From 1 1 p.m. to 8
a.m., the nise level cannot exceed 50
decibels wiuiout a permit.
The ordinance was adopted with a
change in the decibel level after com
mittee member Phillip Pavlick spoke to
the council on behalf of the committee's
unsatisfied members, saying 70 deci
bels was too loud.
Committee Chairman and council
member Joe Herzenberg said about one
third of the committee's members ad
vocated lowering the decibel level with
a permit to 65.

1 3, it was accepted by thecouncil in a 5
2 vote. Because council policy requires
that ordinances pass with at least six
votes, the 65-decibel-level ordinance
was reconsidered.
Thecommittee's recommendation to
lower the decibel level to 70 was the
result of a compromise between com
mittee members who had strong and
conflicting opinions, Herzenberg said.
Committee members, who were vol
unteers from the community, worked
hard on the proposal, Herzenberg said.
They agreed on almost all recommen
dations to thecouncil except the decibel
level issue.
"The committee recommended to the
council a compromise of a maximum of
70 decibels, five decibels below what's
permitted at the present time," he said.
Herzenberg encouraged council
members to reconsider their earlier de
cision to lower the decibel level to 65.
Council member Art Werner sug
gested the proposal be defeated and
reconsidered in the fall because some of
the committee members were students
who were out of town and unaware of
what was happening to their recom
mendation. Werner also wanted more
information on the difference between
65 and 70 decibels.
Herzenberg said before the meeting
that differentiating between five deci
bel levels was like trying to tell different
fragrances apart after spraying several
at a department store counter.
