Members of the black cultural center
working group and the BCC Advisory
Board reached an agreement Monday
to combine their efforts with members
of the provost's blue-ribbon panel join
ing the advisory board's facilities and
planning committee to discuss plans for
a new, free-standing center.
Black Awareness Council members
also tentatively removed their Nov. 13
deadline for a decision from Chancellor
Paul Hardin to support and designate a
site for a free-standing BCC.
The BCC supporters arrived at the
meeting, which was held in the Caro
lina Inn, about 20 minutes into the ses
After more than an hour of hilarity
and crazy antics Monday night, Bryan
Tucker was named Mr. UNC 1992,
defeating competitors Shawn Krest,
Chris Miller and Patrick Dillon for the
Tucker, a senior from Richmond,
Va., was sponsored by UNC Student
Television and is a member of the
comedy troupe Selected Hilarity.
Tucker amused the audience of ap
proximately 50 with stand-up humor
routines and UNC spirit, joking about
everything from couples at the State
Fair to McDonald's food.
"Have you guys seen those State
fans at the fair?" he questioned. "Their
definition of romantic commitment is
like matching air-brush T-shirts."
Miller, a biology major from Shelby
sponsored by the Black Student Move
ment, was named first runner-up in the
contest. For the talent competition, he
performed a native African dance.
Contestants competed in three ar
eas: original cheers, improvisational
answers and talent. The purpose of the
contest was to find the man with the
best sense of UNC spirit.
Judges included Ayo Anthony, a
member of the women's track team;
Ben Joyner, 1992 orientation leader
co-coordinator; Elizabeth Mitchell,
senior class vice president; Sebastian
Shipp, president of the BSM Gospel
Choir; and Peter Wallsten, editor of

Informant: Larger reward deserved
By Dana Pope
The Tar Heel Taxi driver who turned
in the man charged with raping a stu
dent in Granville Towers earlier this
semester said Monday he would press
Orange County Crime Stoppers and fed
era! officials to give him the reward that
the groups advertised.
Frank Boardman, who drove Hildred
Manuel Lyles to the Tar Heel Motel,
received a $50 reward from the local
Crime Stoppers and a $500 reward from
federal marshals after calling Chapel
Hill police and identifying Lyles as the
man he drove to the motel.
: But Boardman said Monday that he
thought he should receive the rewards
advertised by the agencies. The Orange
County Crime Stoppers advertised a
reward up to $1,200 and the U.S. fed
eral marshals advertised a $5,000 re
ward on fliers, Boardman said.

The move toward cooperation comes
on the heels of Hardin's announcement
last week that he supports the working
group's decision to endorse construc
tion of a free-standing center.
Harold Wallace, vice chancellor for
University affairs and chairman emeri
tus of the BCC Advisory Board, made a
statement on behalf of the board, thank
ing the working group for its support of
a free-standing building. Wallace also
invited the panel to designate several of
its members to work with the advisory
board's facilities and planning commit

vision for the black cultural center's
future," Wallace said.

Lyles, 22, was arrested and charged
with first-degree rape Aug. 30 in con
nection with a rape that occurred in
Granville Towers. The rape occurred in
the early morning hours of Aug. 29,
following Lyles' escape from Guilford
County Jail in High Point.
Boardman said he had "swallowed
his anger" for about a month and a half
about the rewards, but a story in
Sunday's edition of the Chapel Hill
Herald pushed him to come forward.
The story covered the Orange County
Crime Stoppers and mentioned the Lyles
case as a recent example of the success
of the Crime Stoppers program.
"All of this would have been a dead '
issue if it were not for last Sunday's
palpably dishonest attempt by Crime
Stoppers to use the episode for fund
raising," Boardman said. "I expect them

Economy, integrity themes
of final presidential debate
The Associated Press
EAST LANSING, Mich. Presi
dent Bush mounted an animated attack
on Bill Clinton ' s integrity and economic
proposals Monday night in a jousting,
climactic campaign debate. After 12
years of Republican rule, Clinton said,
"We can do much better if we have the
courage to change."
Bush predicted the Democrat would
"sock it to the middle class" if elected,
but Clinton pledged instead that he was
"not going to raise taxes on the middle
class to pay" for his initiatives, looking
for spending cuts elsewhere, or if nec
essary, deferring his proposals.
Bush, running an underdog race for
re-election, worked to raise doubts about
Clinton on taxes, emission standards
and the Vietnam draft in a final show
down with his Democratic rival and
Perot stressed his businessman's
background in pledging to wrestle gov
ernment gridlock and solve economic
problems. He said he was spending $60
million of his own fortune on his inde
pendent bid for the White House and
announced the time slots for a blitz of
campaign ads to come.
The debate had its share of sharp
exchanges, and at one point Bush re

Bush played the role of the underdog
aggressor throughout the 90-minute
debate, and it was surely his best debate
performance of the year. His principal
theme, delivered over and over again,
was that on issues as diverse as free
trade and the Persian Gulf War, Clinton
had a pattern of "trying to have it all
ways" by refusing to take a firm stand.
When the president raised the ques
tion of trust, Clinton took note of sev
eral "broken pledges" in Bush's past,
including the "No new taxes" pledge
Bush uttered in 1 988 and broke in 1990.
It was the last in an eight-day series
of debates that began with Clinton ahead
in the race-for the White House and
ended with Bush still searching for a
breakthrough. And Perot for a miracle.
There were no obvious gaffes of the
type that could doom a campaign. Nei
ther did any of the candidates dominate
in a way that would suggest an over
night turnaround in the polls. The most
recent surveys showed Clinton hover
ing slightly below 50 percent in a three
way race, Bush getting slightly more
than a third of the vote, and Perot lag
