BCC board: Boulton must
ensure Crawford's position
By Anna Griffin

Monday between the black cultural cen

sory Board, no official talks will take
place between the two groups until UNC
officials publicly ensure the job of BCC
Director Margo Crawford, an advisory
board official said Tuesday night.
Crawford, who oversees the day-today
operation of the center, has been the
subject of numerous job threats, ac-
cording to Trisha Merchant, vice-chair-.

Although the two sides in the contro

agree to work together Monday, the
advisory board will not begin official
Applicants criticize council decision
By Jackie Hershkowitz
Assistant City Editor
Some of the applicants for the Chapel
Hill Town Council's vacant seat said
Tuesday that they were upset by the
council's change of plans to hold an
open public forum for all candidates.
; After initially agreeing to hold indi
vidual interviews with candidates, the
council decided Monday that an open'
forum would better serve the interests
of the public.
The forum to appoint the new coun
cil member will take place at 7 p.m.
Sunday at Chapel Hill Town Hall.
- One of the council's eight seats was
vacated last month after council mem
ber Roosevelt Wilkerson resigned, ad
mitting he had falsified the mayor's
signature on an official town document.
- Paul Tripodi, owner of Tripodi's
Delicatessen and one of the 10 appli
cants for the vacant seat, said he was
frustrated by the council's last-minute
decision, adding that it was indicative
of how the council tended to operate.
"It's kind of a thrown-together deal,"
Tripodi said. "They're making it up as
they go along."
It was unfair of the council to change
the application process without giving
the candidates sufficient notice, he
added, explaining that applicants would
be given only four days to prepare the
answers to questions the council would

with Tripodi, adding that she would not
be able to attend the forum because of a
prior out-of-town commitment.
"Giving the candidates less than one
week's notice is not good planning,"
But Chapel Hill Mayor Ken Broun
said he thought the decision to hold an
open forum showed that the council
was responsive to public concerns.
"I prefer to say we' ve shown flexibil
ity than to say we've flip-flopped,"
Broun said he did not think that the
procedural change significantly would
inconvenience the applicants because
the same questions would be asked in a
public hearing as in private meetings.

will be given six questions and will be

Graduate school applications up;
experts cite declining job market
By Gautam Khandclwal
UNC graduate schools have seen a
dramatic rise in the number of appli
cants in recent years, due in part to the
decline of the U.S. job market.
Henry Dearman, dean of the Gradu
ate School, said there had been an in
crease nationally in the number of ap
plicants to graduate schools. "I think
that it is certainly a reasonable conjec
ture that the recession has had some
thing to do with the increase in graduate
enrollment," he said.
Dearman said the state of the
economy should not be the deciding
factor for students considering enroll
ing in graduate school.
Lloyd agreed. "If the members would
go in tomorrow with open minds, then
they could see these issues for what they
really were," she said.
But Lloyd said she feared that some
members had already decided how they
"If they promise a vote either way,
then there is no reason for the process,"

The two-hour program began with a
dramatic presentation by the Ebony
Readers, a BSM drama troupe. The
group alternated humorous and emo
tional skits to celebrate and bemoan the
state of black America.
Afro II, a dance group, invited the
audience to accompany their set with
noise and song. The dancers presented
a traditional West African welcome
dance called Funga.
Carla Bost conducted the BSM Gos

Occasional somber moments punctu

The remaining charges accuse Lloyd
of failing to hold required Administra

chief justice, signing requisition forms
