Four days after a crowd of about 300
supporters of a free-standing black cul
tural center protested in front of Chan
cellor Paul Hardin's home, Hardin said
that although he would not respond to
demonstrations, he still wanted to work
with students to develop a concrete BCC
Hardin, who had been out of town
since Thursday, said he did not learn
about the protest until Monday after
noon. Although he said he was pleased
that the demonstration was orderly,
Hardin added that the protest did not

Local NAACP promotes
black purchasing power

The Chapel Hill-Carrboro branch of

sumers to spend $2 bills and Susan B.

The week, which is an economic
iemonstration to show the buying power
the black community, began Satur
day and will end Sunday.
Although the demonstration has been
leld nationwide for nine years, this is
he first year that the local branch has
jarticipated, Chapel Hill-Carrboro
VAACP President James Brittian said.
According to a press release from the
ocal branch of the NAACP, Black
Dollar Week will show businesses the
imount of money black consumers con
ribute to the economy.
"By participating in this national dem

In the wake of a meeting last week

On Monday, Hardin repeated his al
most year-old message that he wanted
coalition members to develop a con
crete plan for a BCC. He also said he
had repeatedly offered the University
architect's services to anyone who
wanted to draw up plans for either a
free-standing building or an expansion
to the Student Union.
"I really am anxious to get the solu-
and business opportunities," the press
release stated. "Our message is plain.
You cannot count our money without
counting us; either count us in, or count
Brittian said local businesses did not
object to the demonstration. "For the
most part, businesses will take part if
they are asked to," he said.
But Brittian added that discrimina
tion against blacks and women still ex
isted in America. "Sometimes people
forget those things if they are not re
minded of it," he said.
Businesses usually hire white men
during tough economic times, Brittian
added. "During the recession, people
tend to discriminate," he said.
Statistics show that black Americans
will earn more than $200 billion in 1 992
and will spend $170 billion.
"We'll spend that money," Brittian
said. "Whites will save a lot of their
earnings. We'll only save about $30
billion of that $200 billion.

"We just want to get student support
kicked off again," said Matthew Stewart,
a former UNC student who has helped
coordinate the movement. "We've al
ways found it works best to have the
students meet the housekeepers and talk
to them face to face."

Special election set for open congress seats
By Anna Griffin
A special election to fill eight vacant
Student Congress seats will be held
Sept. 22, Student Body President John
Moody announced last week.
Moody and newly appointed Elec
tions Board Chairman Ron Barnes an
nounced last Thursday that the special
vote would be held from 10 a.m. to 3
p.m. in the Pit.
The election was triggered by the
resignation of eight congress members
over the summer.
Students interested in running for the
open seats should pick up a petition in
the Elections Board office.
The petitions, which should be signed
by at least 25 people, must be turned in
to the Elections Board office by 5 p.m.,
No late petitions will be accepted,
"That's been a problem in the past,"
he said. "One of the things I'm aiming
for is to make sure everyone under

member, pleaded guilty last month to

Despite a resolution the council
passed Aug. 24 urging him to resign,
Herzenberg has vowed to stay on and
has asked town residents for forgive

But he said Monday he saw "no con
flict whatsoever" with serving on the
hotel-motel tax committee, a council
sub-committee that proposes how to
allocate $29,000 from hotel occupancy
for student affairs, he said.
McCormick, who came to UNC this
summer from Rutgers University, said
he thought the protest was effective
because students were given the oppor
tunity to express their feelings. He added
that he hoped the protest would con
vince students to discuss a solution to
the conflict with administrators.
"I admire the students for taking the
initiative for expressing their views
forcefully," he said. "If that brings us
closer to sitting down to decide, then it
was very effective."

speaker Tim Moore, Dist. 25; Dinah

Barnes said he did not expect the type
of turnout present at general elections,
which are held in February.
"I don't expect a lot of people," he
said. "Student Congress is not the kind
of thing where people protest the vote.
It's not like an SBP race."
Despite predictions of a low turnout,
Student Congress Speaker Jennifer
Lloyd said she already had received
calls from students interested in run
ning for the vacant seats.
"There are a lot of different people
coming in," she said.
If the eight new members are of the
same mindset, they could form a sig
nificant voting block, Lloyd said.
Lloyd dismissed claims that operat

American seat or the ultra-right-wing

Elizabeth Kolb, Campus Y co-president,
said she thought the protest showed
that many students continued to support
a free-standing BCC. The Campus Y is
a member of the BCC coalition.
"The fact that 300 people gathered in
the span of only one hour proves that
students still support the building," said
Kolb, who did not attend the protest.
"The administration was counting on
the fact that they thought this thing
would die, and this proves students are
a girl on a stairway, reading a book," he
said. "She had the door wide open. She
wasn't paying attention, and someone
could have just walked right in."
Nickerson also said he saw a door to
Lewis Residence Hall propped open
with a rug and a door in Howell Hall
held open with a Pepsi can.
"Students need to be more respon
sible," he said, shaking his head.
Some students who stayed in town
for the weekend said that even with
round-the-clock lockup, dormitories and
locked buildings were easily accessible.
"People just let anyone in anyway,"
said Alison Nemeth, a freshman from
Bucks County, Pa. "All you have to do
is hang around the door for a while, and
someone will let you in."
Freshman Dawad Norville, agreed.
"I understand about the lockup, but any
one can get in," he said, adding that he
divide up the money.
"I really think a great deal has been
made over a very small thing," he added.
Herzenberg serves on three other
committees: the committee that recom
mends names for buildings and streets,
the Chapel Hill-Carrboro annexation
boundary line committee and the com
mittee on council procedure revision.
Town council member Joe Capowski
said Herzenberg's presence on com
mittees specifically dealing with fi
nances reflected poorly on the entire
"If (council members) aren't immacu
late in the way we pay our taxes, no one
will have confidence in the way we
handle public finances," Capowski said.
Council member Alan Rimer said he
did not think Herzenberg needed to stay
away from committees involving taxa
tion and spending.
"Everything the council does has to
do with money in some way, shape or
form," Rimer said Monday. "Resigning
from one committee is not going to
make one iota worth of difference."
Capowski said public opinion sup
getting more involved."
Campus Y Co-president Scott
Wilkens, who did participate in the pro
test, echoed Kolb's thoughts.
"The purpose of the protest was two
fold," he said. "The purpose was (a) to
elicit a response, and (b) to show sup
port and increase support to let the cam
pus know what's going on.
"The second part was a great suc
cess," Wilkens said. "I haven't talked to
the chancellor, so I don't know about
the first part. I think that's where we'll
find out about what's yet to come."
Coalition members will meet today

Jennifer Schmitt, a freshman, agreed
that while most dorm doors were locked,
it was still easy to get into the dormito
ries. The answer is to make sure that
residents lock their rooms, she said.
"In Avery, all you have to do is crawl
back over a brick wall, and you can
reach any balcony you want to," she
said. "We don't take chances, so we
lock our doors to our suites and rooms."
The events of the past week have

Tiffany Cable, a freshman, used to
keep her Mace in her room. Since the
outbreak of crime, however, Cable has
carried her Mace with her. "I didn't
think that I would need to carry Mace
with me," she said, "but now I do."
