Campus yearbook might not
By Bonnie Rochman
Assistant University Editor
The campus yearbook might be
forced to close up shop as a result of the
UNC Audit Board's unanimous deci
sion Tuesday to refuse to authorize a
loan to the financially troubled Yackety
Yack, yearbook editors said.
"If we don't get a loan from some
body, the future of the Yackety Yack is
definitely uncertain, and chances are
good that the Yack will close," said
Yack associate editor Nick Franzese.
Yearbook officials had requested that
the Audit Board approve a Student Ac

which would help offset difficulties the

A shortage of funds prompted Stu

fees to cover expenditures for the rest of
The measure was necessary because
the 74th congress was left with only
$ 150 after former congress leaders spent
hundreds of dollars on office supplies.
Speaker Jennifer Lloyd said.
"We have no money," Lloyd said. "If
we were not to get the money this

Student Congress had less than $8 in
its account Wednesday.
The $500 comes from money con
gress did not give out to student groups
during the February budget hearings.
Congress expenses include $100 for
more office supplies, $200 to pay for
printing and publicity costs, and $200
to pay its clerk, according to the bill.
Lloyd said between March 31 and
April 6, about $1,000 was deducted
from the Student Congress account.
More than $200 worth of supplies
approved for purchase by former
Speaker Tim Moore are missing, Lloyd
said. But Moore said only $40 of the
equipment could not be accounted for.
Moore said: "When we totaled it up,
about $40 worth of supplies was miss

into really stupid stuff that's used often.

Congress gives support 3
Yack is encountering in paying Delmar,
its publishing company, for the 1990
and 1991 yearbooks.
The yearbook is on the brink of col
lapse following financial mismanage
ment and the alleged embezzlement of
$75,896.65 by the Yack's former busi
ness manager, Tracy Lamont Keene.
"We asked for a loan from SAFO
because they have about $80,000 extra
because of good financial management,"
Franzese said. "We asked for the em
bezzled amount, and we weld repay
that loan on a repayment schedule agree
able to both of us."

Lloyd said: "My office was empty.
Tim left me a package of post-it notes,
one pencil and a package of Turns. I
cannot express my disbelief that Mr.
Moore is not responding to this prob
lem." Three audits were conducted last
week of spending in Student Congress.
All three produced different results.
A congress committee appointed
by Lloyd said $ 1 1 9.03 of missing equip
ment needed to be accounted for, but
their audit did not take into account
smaller, inexpensive items. ,' "
'There's really no way to recover
any of the smaller items," said Rep.
Pam Sanders, a committee member.
Sanders said the committee did not
want to imply that the former congress
officers had done anything illegal.
"It seems like some things have been
misplaced or lost, and we'd just like to
know where they are."
Moore said many of the officers of
last year's congress believed the find
ings were politically motivated.

Universities reconsider rape procedures
Editor's note: The following is the
second in a three-part series investigat
ing how major universities across the
country try accused rapists.
Last year, a woman who was raped or
sexually assaulted at Bucknell Univer
sity in Pennsylvania had the option of
pressing charges through the
university's student judicial board.
She had the option of taking part in a
long, drawn-out judicial process, the
option of being questioned by her at
tacker during the hearing and the option
of telling her story to a board of 12
people who had more experience and
training in hearing plagiarism cases or
charges of cheating on a mid-term.
"The way the system was set up
before was really set up to protect the
students who were accused they were
said he never had any intention of grant
ing the yearbook such a large sum. "It
wouldn't have been good business sense
to make a $75,000 lump payment.
'There were not intentions of mak
ing a blanket one-time payment to
Delmar of $75,000, but we would have
loaned to the Yack whatever amount
was over and above what is recovered
from (the embezzlement)," he said.
Audit Board Chairman Neal McCall
said the Audit Board, which must ap
prove any SAFO operational changes
or expenditures, decided not to approve
a loan because it would have meant that

Pro-choice advocates listen to NARAL-NC executive director Ruth Ziegler Wednesday at a rally

RALEIGH More than 200 pro

Raleigh Wednesday, voicing theircon

In the report, the treatment center

sexual assault on campus and creating a

A Wednesday night forum designed
to address conflicts between the protec
tion of civil liberties and the enforce
ment of drug laws turned into a griev
ance session for residents unsatisfied
with local efforts to combat illegal drugs.
Organizers invited five speakers, rep
resenting local public housing residents,
law enforcement officers and the legal
community, to speak on the civil rights
concerns of residents and of police of
ficers who confront drug trafficking in
local neighborhoods. About 40 people
attended the forum in the Hargraves
Center on North Roberson Street.
But the discussion was steered away
from the issue of civil liberties by resi
dents who told the panel they were
frustrated with rampant drug problems
in local communities.
A woman who identified herself as a
public housing resident said she wished
that the police would make themselves
more visible to deter drug trafficking.
"It's so bad; people sel 1 drugs outside
your door," she said. "You call the
police, but by the time they get there,
the pushers are gone."
Chapel Hill interim police Chief
Ralph Pendergraph said police, local
agenci"s andconcernedcitizens needed
to cooperate more.
'There's very little communication
between law enforcement and local
groups," Pendergraph said. "Tradition
ally, law enforcement has been sort of a
closed shop that didn't like to discuss
(its) inability to do things. But we need
to realize that none of us can do it on our
own and that we must cooperate."
He said the public needed to realize
the police's ability to act was limited.
"We are being asked for a lot that's
beyond our control," he said. "People
are suffering, and kids are suffering.
But I have to also be cognizant of
people's rights and liberties."
Orange-Chatham District Attorney
Carl Fox said the war on drugs had been
unsuccessful because a concerted effort
to attack the problem had not been made.
"The war on drugs is like the Viet
nam War," Fox said. "We haven't re
solved to use all necessary means to
fight the war."

fessor, said the police needed to be
