AIDS oeech ffimdta
By Anna Griffin
Student Congress Speaker Jennifer
Lloyd and Student Activities Fund Of
fice Director Howard Brubacker said
Wednesday the allegation that Lloyd
tried to stop payment of $645 to the
Campus Crusade for Christ was false
and that the five congress members
seeking to impeach her knew the com
plaint was untrue.
In an impeachment bill submitted to
the office of thespeaker Tuesday, Reps.
George Battle andPhilip Charles-Pierre,
Dist. 17; Chris Tuck, Dist. 20; Kevin
Hunter, Dist. 14; and Charlton Allen,
Dist. 21, contend that Lloyd "commit
ted a malfeasance of her duty" by at
tempting to prevent the lawful enact
ment of a bill, which would give $645 to
the Campus Crusade for Christ.
The bill, which was approved by a
congress vote of 13-to-6, donated the
money to the campus religious organi
zation for a presentation by AIDS
speaker John Harris at 7 p.m. tonight in
Hamilton 1 00. In the impeachment bill,
the five members claim Lloyd tried to
stop the allocation of the money after
members of the University community
questioned whether the bill was legal.
Hunter said he overheard a conversa
tion last Thursday between Lloyd and
Student Body President John Moody,
in which Lloyd said congress couldn't
donate the money to Campus Crusade.
Hunter said Lloyd's conversation with
Moody and statements she has made in
the press overstepped her duties as
"The speaker is supposed to be the
spokesman for congress," Hunter said.
"What she said and what she tried to do
undermined the authority of the full
In statements to the press, Lloyd has
said Campus Crusade must prove the
Harris speech is not religious in nature.
Hunter said the speaker of congress
shouldn't make such comments. "It's
inappropriate for the speaker of con
gress to make such statements," he said.
"The speaker speaks on behalf of the
majority once a bill has beerf passed."
But Lloyd, who presented a copy of
the bill to the S AFO office Friday morn
ing, said the conversation that Hunter
overheard was part of an effort on her
part to rectify any concerns about the
legality of the bill.
"A professor at the law school said
the bill would be legal as long as (the
money) went directly to (Harris)," Lloyd
said Wednesday. "I asked John (Moody)
Beat State party canceled
By Thanassis Cambanis
For the first time in recent history,
the Delta Upsilon fraternity will not
sponsor its traditional "Beat State" party
on the eve of the UNC-N.C. State foot
The fraternity made a chapter deci
sion to cancel the campuswide party
due to "ever-increasing liability risks,"
according to a release.
Under the new inter-fraternity risk
management policy, open campuswide
parties are illegal.
"The liability and risk management
costs were too high to have it (at the
house)," said DU president Josh Siegel.
Capt. Gregg Jarvies of the Chapel
Hill Police Department said the annual
party was getting out of hand. "We said
'Unless you curb the crowd size and

John Harris, the Campus Crusade
f orChrist-sponsored speaker who will
make a much talked about presenta
tion tonight on AIDS, said the recent
controversy at UNC concerning Siu
dent Congress funding of his speech
was not an issue of the separation of
church and state.
"That's really an in-house problem
for you guys," he said about the con
troversy. "First of all, (separation of
church and state) is not in our Consti
tution. Second of all, these are not
state funds they are student funds."
Harris said when congress looked
at a group to determine whether they
should receive funding its decision
must be "content blind."
At its last meeting, Student Con
gress donated $645 to Campus Cru
sade to help pay for Haras' travel,
food and hotel expenses. Congress
members have since expressed con
cern that funding the Campus Crusade
speaker would open doors to other
religious and political groups asking
for money from congress.
In a letter to The Daily Tar Heel
Tuesday, Speaker Jennifer Lloyd said
that if the program turned out to be

of the University community.
Jarvies said he had worked with the
DU members for five years, and they
had been very cooperative. "(The party)
got to be expensive for them," he said.
"Last time, I recall the DUs had to pay
$1,300 for 15 officers and $500 for
eight Port-A-Johns," he said.
Two years ago, a tear gas incident at
the DU party raised local concerns about
large fraternity parties. Shortly after an
official DU-sponsored party at the Cat's
Cradle last year, another impromptu
large party developed at the DU house.
"As a result of the tear gas incident,
we tried to move (the party) to another
location," Siegel said. "As I remember,

set for funding of student organiza

Bush says small businesses
vital to economic recovery
By Rebec ah Moore
State and National Editor
GREENSBORO President Bush
told a crowd of N.C. small business
leaders Wednesday that his new eco
nomic plan would lift tax burdens off
the backs of aspiring entrepreneurs.
Bush spoke to an audience of about
2,000 members of the Triad Chamber
of Commerce and their guests in the
Guilford ballroom at the Joseph S. Koury
Convention Center in Greensboro.
The president, who once ran his own
business, said that small-business inge
nuity was a key factor in rebuilding the
nation's ailing economy.
Bush also said his economic plan
would give tax breaks to small business
owners and would diminish govern
ment regulations on these businesses.
"It's critical that we do all we can to
strengthen small business," Bush said.
"I've been there myself. I started from
the ground up, and I know what it's like
to sweat to get a payroll out.
"Meeting a payroll is not a bad quali
fication for being president of the United
States," he said.
Bush's proposed plan would reduce
the corporate tax rate on small busi
nesses from 15 percent to 10 percent,
allow write-offs for company start-up
costs and eliminate a capital gains tax
on newly issued stock.
"It's time to cut the tax on capital
gain," he said. "The liberals continue to
insist that it's a break for the rich. It isn't
it's an incentive."
Bush then attacked Arkansas Gov.
Bill Clinton's economic agenda, saying
Clinton "could not do more damage to
America's risk-takers if he declared war
Clinton's "soak the rich rhetoric"
involves excessive government regula
tion and taxation on small businesses,
"Mr. Clinton sees small business as
the goose who lays the golden egg,"
Bush said. "If you're like me, you know
small business should not be the
government's piggy bank."
Bush also said Clinton's proposed
across-the-board tax plan would harm
most of the American work force.
"Two-thirds of those who would be
hit would be small business owners or
family farmers," he said. "These people

one we loved very much."

The only students on die committee
of 13 are Student Body Vice President
Charlie Higgins, junior Adrian Patillo
and doctoral student Patrick Rivers.
The group will consider different
proposals for a new or expanded BCC
and will present Hardin with a defini
tive plan. The chancellor has said he
would consider the proposal and, upon
approving it, present the plan to the
Board of Trustees.
"My charge to the group, which is in
keeping with Chancellor Hardin's in
tentions, will be to study the history of
the black cultural center and prepare a
comprehensive programmatic plan for
its expansion," Mc'Cormick said in the
statement "Any appropriate .inhitcc
tural forms and land sites will be con
sidered in light of the programmatic
plan that the working group develops."
McCormick was not available for
comment Wednesday night.

"(Clinton) has a tax plan for every
day of the week ... I tell you, it's 'tax

The taxes that small businesses would
pay the federal government under
Clinton's plan could force employers to
