.Faculty: Auditor findings
may create needless work
By Bonnie Rochman
Assistant University Editor
The slate auditor's recommendations
that UNC-system professors document
what they do with their time have pro
fessors up in arms about the possible
onslaught of paperwork.
The audit, which covered the fiscal
years of 1989-90 and 1990-91, con
cluded that the system's 8,065 profes
sors have ample opportunities to mis
use state resources as a result of insuffi
Jimmy Benson, deputy state auditor,
said the audit resulted in two main rec
ommendations to the UNC Board of
Governors, both of which deal with
better record keeping. "The system
needs to improve documentation re
lated to faculty work assignments be
cause of the perception that faculty
members may not be working as much
as people think they should be.
'They also need to improve the poli
cies and regulations regarding second
ary employment," Benson said. Sec
ondary employment refers to consulta
tion done outside the University.

Black students are fighting a war,

African heritage, a controversial rap
artist told a crowd of more than 250
people Wednesday night. .
Sister Souljah, the keynote speaker
for Race Relations Week, spoke to the
Hill Hall audience as quickly, loudly
and passionately as she sings to her
listeners in Public Enemy's rap songs.
In her emotional lecture, Souljah
echoed the complaints of black stu
dents on campus complaints that
have prompted hundreds of students
to protest and label Chancellor Paul
Hardin a racist.
"It's important that students don't
believe the hype about things getting
better because things are getting
worse," Souljah exclaimed.
Audience members applauded and
nodded their heads in approval.

The aldermen voted 4-3 to pass the
amendment. Because it lacked support
from a two-thirds majority of the board,
the amendment must come before the
board again next week before it can
become a law.
State law requires an amendment re
ceive two-thirds majority on its first
reading to be law. If a simple majority
of the aldermen vote to pass it next
week at its second reading, the amend
ment will become law.
Aldermen Milliard Caldwell, Tom

against the amendment.

The vote was the most solid step
taken toward ending apartheid in South
Africa, a nation branded for decades as
an intractable stronghold of racism.
Major issues remain to be resolved be
tween de Klerk and black leaders, and a
swift transfer of power is not likely.
"Today, we have closed the book on
apartheid," said de Klerk, who cel
ebrated his 56th birthday Wednesday.
'Today, in a certain sense of the word,
is the real birthday of the real, new.

The election gave de Klerk the deci

Congress and other black groups on
writing a new constitution.

The crowd yelled and applauded
for about 15 seconds.
"If a University that you pay for
doesn't allow you to have African
professors at percentages that reflect
your presence at the University, then
you are at war," she said.
Again the crowd clapped vigor
ously for about 15 seconds and called
out for Souljah to continue.
"They will try to convince you that
a chair is a table and a table is a chair.
And they will try to convince you that
a room is a cultural center."
The crowd then erupted into a stand

Carrboro town attorney Michael
Brough said that some courts had struck
down similar ordinances prohibiting
panhandling on the basis that they
abridge freedom of speech but that he
agreed with more recent cases uphold
ing the ordinances.
"Some courts have said utterances
like 'can you give me some money?' are
protected by free speech," Brough said.
Brough also said he did not consider
panhandling expressive conduct.
"The mere fact that speech is in
volved does not mean it is protected by
the First Amendment," he said. "Sim
