The Society of Professional Journal
ists endorsed Daily Tar Heel editor can
didate Matthew Eisley, and the Caro
lina Association of Black Journalists
endorsed Peter Wallsten after an editor
candidate forum Monday night.
The forum was sponsored by the
DTH. SPJ and CABJ. The DTH will
announce its endorsement Monday.
: ' Lynette Blair, CABJ president, said
the group endorsed Wallsten because
his concrete plans for increased accu
racy in the paper and his overall attitude
would best improve minority coverage
at the DTH.
' "We liked his honesty," Blair said.
"There is an aspect of caring in Peter
that we have seen now and in the past."
; Emilie Van Poucke, SBJ president,
said SPJ chose Eisley because of his
professional experience, his plans to
reach out to graduate students and fac
ulty, and his dedication to the DTH.
"The most important quality is his
professional experience," Van Poucke
said. "Matthew seems to be the type of
person that is open to suggestion."
A panel comprising Cullen Ferguson,
DTH editorial page editor, Cheryl Allen,
SPJ vice president; and John McCann,
CABJ vice president, questioned the
candidates before the floor was opened

McCann asked candidate Wendy
Bounds about her motives for planning
to appoint Angle Gantt to the DTH
editorial board. Gantt, campaign man
ager for Bounds and Dacia Toll, is a
black woman who has never worked for
"What we want to do is get intelligent
people in there who have intelligent
opinions," Bounds said. "Angie is a
very bright girl. She has a lot of good
ideas. Regardless of the fact that she is
our campaign manager we still feel she
could serve as a vital voice and also give
us a perspective from the point of view
of a black female."
Ferguson asked Eisley how he would
recruit students with diverse viewpoints
for the newspaper, when past efforts
had not been successful.
"I want to go to their meetings and
say, 'Look, I'm Matthew Eisley, and
you guys have been complaining all the
time that there's not enough conserva
tive voice on the editorial page,'" Eisley
said. "Here's your chance I want you
to come write.'"
Wallsten said he planned to diversify

With numbers like that, it's not at all
surprising that recruiting is often more
difficult for Papa than devising a game
"I may lose some people because
finances come into play in the recruit
ing process," Papa said. "They look at
the school and the program, but they
also have to look at the finances."
Papa said nine members of thisyear's

ing the present prerequisite requiring a
board member to have served one year

"You don't develop opinions on cam
pus issues based on being a member of
the DTH," Wallsten said. "When you
talk about diversifying the staff, this is
a way of opening the door for that. I
think that by opening it up you take
away a little bit of the clique-ishness."
Candidate Stephanie Johnston said
she would strive to humanize the ar
ticles. "I would make sure they're well
researched and balanced with different
types of people writing the stories,"
Johnston said. "I would get a lot of
people in there with quotes that don't
sound like they're from a press release."
Kevin Schwartz, DTH general man
ager, asked the candidates how they
would deal with serving the 15-month
term the next editor would serve if the
referendum designed tochange the DTH
editor selection process were approved.
Wallsten said because he had served
as city desk editor for 1 12 years he felt
prepared to handle the added stress of

The Carrboro Board of Aldermen on
Tuesday night defeated a proposal to
annex property outside town limits af

own land in the unincorporated areas.
Carrboro Mayor Eleanor Kinnaird
said the town should have annexed un
incorporated property to preserve the
integrity of town borders.
"We are not considering annexation
for taxation needs," Kinnaird said. "It
makes sense for boundaries to encom
