Assistant Unhrrslty Editor
Student Congress members voted 1 6-3-1
at a special meeting Wednesday to
drop the articles of impeachment against
Speaker Jennifer Lloyd after members
of the prosecution walked out of the
meeting before the scheduled trial could
The trial, which would have been the
culmination of almost a month of im
peachment talk, would have given Lloyd
a chance to present her response to the
charges. Had the trial taken place, both
sides would have questioned witnesses
and presented evidence before congress.
The prosecution walked out of the
meeting after a failed motion by pros
ecution member Rep. Chris Tuck, Dist.
20, to suspend the meeting indefinitely.

New dialogue starts
on future of airport
By Thanassis Cambanis
A group of University and local
government officials and area resi
dents reviewed conflicting positions
on the future of Horace Williams Air
port Wednesday night and set a date
for its next meeting.
Discussion during the meeting fre
quently pitted the needs of University
officials and private aviators against
the concerns of residents, who re
sented the safety hazard and noise
caused by the airport. The airport is
.near many neighborhoods and schools,
"Horace Williams Airport will con
tinue operating until an acceptable
alternative airport is found," said
Wayne Jones, UNC vice chancellor
for business and finance. "The Uni
versity is interested in having an air
port available, not in operating one."
Officials first recommended creat-.
ing the panel, called the Horace Wil
liams Airport Preliminary Dialogue
group, in May after years of disagree-;
meht about the fate of the airport.
The University owns the airport,
which is located north of town near
the corner of Airport Road and Estes
The airport serves general aviators
and the Area Health Education Cen
ters program run by the UNC Medical
School. The AHEC program provides
continuing education and consulta
tion clinics in rural N.C. areas where
medical professionals are scarce.
Disagreements about the airport

N.C. Rep. Dennis Wicker, D-Lee,
the Democratic lieutenant gubernato
rial candidate, touched on many of the
major issues in the campaign as he
delivered a brief speech Wednesday
evening at the Europa Center in Chapel
About 40 citizens and politicians
from the state attended the function.
The event was sponsored by the Friends
for Dennis Wicker Committee.
Wicker, a Phi Beta Kappa graduate
of UNC and graduate of Wake Forest
Law School, was introduced by N.C.
Reps. Joe Hackney, D-Orange, and Ann
In his speech, Wicker spoke of the
concerns he thought were relevant to
his campaign, including abortion, the
environment and education.
"I am strongly pro-choice, and this is
a distinct difference between my candi
dacy and my opponent's candidacy,"
Wicker said. He also said that as lieu
tenant governor, he would be the one to
cast the tie-breaking vote in the state
Senate should Roe v. Wade be over

ment during his speech. "I am pleased
to have been endorsed by the Sierra

ment Act. "We need to start looking at
reduction and recycling of hazardous
waste," Wicker said.
bers were present, enough legally to
hold a meeting.
Only three members of the original
group of five who sponsored the bill
attended the meeting. Reps. Kevin
Hunter, Dist. 14, and Charlton Allen,
Dist. 21, went to the N.C. State Fair to
hear President Bush speak.
Rep. Philip Charles-Pierre, Dist. 17,
said he and Rep. George Battle, Dist.
17, and Tuck, the remaining members
of the prosecution, walked out of the
trial because they thought that not
enough members were present at the
meeting toconstitute a fair trial and that
most of the members present were bi
ased toward Lloyd.
"In reality, there was no way I could
feel good about going on with a trial
with this historic magnitude with one
member over quorum," Charles-Pierre
said. "There was really no sense in
in 1989, when the Orange County
Commissioners defeated a plan to re
locate it to a rural site in the county.
Members of two citizen-interest
groups attended the meeting: Cit izens
- for Airport Planning and Stop the
County Regional Airport Plan and
questioned whether an airport was
needed in Orange County.
Diane Bloom of CAP said citizens
were alarmed at the enlargement of
the airport. "Our position is that
Horace Williams is a horrible loca
tion for any airport, near fourschools."
Bloom listed safety for schools,
children and neighbors and noise prob
lems as primary resident concerns with
"What we would like is some bind
ing assurance that the airport will not
get any bigger or better than it is
now," she said.
Four mediators from the Institute
for Environmental Negotiation from
the University of Virginia led the dis
cussion. John Payne, deputy director for
administration of AHEC, said airport
. access was critical to the continuing
success of the program. "We don't
think we could get the number of
activities we have without the air
port," he said.
Rich Collins, a senior member of
IEN who mediated the discussion,
often Stopped exchanges between
group members, and he said ques
tions would be answered in more de
tail at the group's next meeting.
The group will meet again Nov. 18
at a site to be decided.

Battle also said he thought most of
the congress members at the meeting
were biased toward Lloyd and would
not have listened objectively to the evi
dence. "The vast majority of the people that
were in there were people who sup

who were opposed to Jennifer and who

Bush rebuts Clinton at N.C.
By Rebecah Moore
RALEIGH President George Bush
outlined his administration's re-election
agenda and attacked Democratic
candidate Bill Clinton at a whistle-stop
visit to the N.C. State Fair Wednesday
After arriving on U.S. Train One,
"The Spirit of America," and being in
troduced by U.S. Sen. Jesse Helms, R
N.C., Bush told the crowd of approxi
mately 1 0,000 that Clinton's "flip-flopping"
stance on election issues would
not be an admirable quality for the presi
dent of the United States.
"He's on one side of the issue one
day and another side of the issue an
other day, and we can't turn the White
House into the Waffle House," Bush
Bush reflected on Monday night's
debate by saying he had given the voters
a clear version of his administration's
plans if he were re-elected.
"Anyone see that debate Monday
night? One good thing about a debate
... you can get your message out unfil
tered," he said.
"The American people saw a differ
ence of experience, a difference in lead
ership and a difference in character."
The president also took the opportu
nity tocriticize Clinton's record as gov
ernor of Arkansas.
"For 1 1 months, the liberal Demo
crats and Bill Clinton have been mis
representing my record," Bush said.
Bush said that Arkansas' ranking of
50th in the nation for adults holding
college degrees, spending on police pro
tection and spending for criminal jus
tice should show voters that Clinton's
agenda would not solve the nation's

Lloyd said she was disappointed that
she didn't have an opportunity to tell
her side of the story but also told con
gress members after the meeting that
she planned to mail a letter to all of them
outlining her defense.
"I can't believe this," she said. "I'm
really disappointed in the prosecution.
You do not charge someone with im
peachment and then walk out. They've
known from the beginning these charges
had no backing."
Jim Copland, a senior from
Burlington who had planned to serve as
manager for the defense in the proceed
ings, said he thought that walking out
showed that members of the prosecu
tion were not serious in their charges
"Were the full congress present, the
16 votes would have been enough to
"Governor Clinton said in the debate
'I want to do for America what I've
done for Arkansas,' and we can't let
him do that," Bush said.
Bushsaid Clinton's message of
change was not a valid slogan if the
- Democrat's plans were not solid.
"Change is what you're gonna have left
in your pockets if you elect this guy,"he
Bush stressed the main components
of his economic and domestic plans.
With the national debt being a key
argument for the Democrats during the
campaign, Bush said the passing of a
balanced budget amendment would
force Congress to reduce the deficit.
The president also said he would
"crack down" on the nation's increased

on stage by N.C. Gov. Jim Martin, stock
car driver Richard Petty and U.S. Sen.
Strom Thurmond, R-S.C.
Jim Ryan, executive vice chairman
of the UNC Young Republicans, at
tended the speech and said Bush'schar
acter and honesty would help the presi
dent in the voting booths Nov. 3.
"When voters go into the booths and
shut the door, they are going to ask 'who
do I trust?' and most of North Carolina
and Americans are going to say they
trust George Bush," Ryan said.
A group of ClintonGore supporters
also attended the rally. The group dis
played signs and chanted for Clinton.
Their protest was disturbed by one
Republican who tore a Democrat 's sign
in half in front of the cheering crowd.
"We have the right to express our
views," said Joana Santamore, a junior
from Meredith College. "We aren't try
ing to tear down their signs, and be

University housekeepers take
their fight to the classrooms
By Kathleen Keener
University housekeepers have
joined forces with some faculty mem
bers in an effort to educate students
about the housekeepers' fight for
higher wages and better working con
ditions. Leaders of the housekeepers' move
ment have volunteered to speak to
classes about themselves to generate
student support, said Matthew Stewart,
a UNC graduate and a representative
of the housekeepers.
Stewart said the housekeepers
wanted students to understand the three
major issues of the movement. The
housekeepers are requesting better
pay, job training for higher positions
and improved treatment from super
visors, he said.
: Ann Traposso, a graduate student
in English who is working with the
housekeepers, said members of the
faculty and some of the housekeepers
had formed an educadon committee
during the summer to inform other
members of the University commu
nity about their struggle.
The committee sent letters to pro
fessors before the start of the semester
explaining the housekeepers' interest
in speaking directly to students.
Soyiru Madison, a speech commu
nication professor and member of the
committee, gave a workshop on pub-
. find (Lloyd) not guilty," said Copland,
who resigned his post as an emergency
justice of the Student Supreme Court
last week to defend Lloyd. "From the
beginning, this has been an effort to
discredit Jennifer Lloyd. The congress
tonight stood behind Jennifer Lloyd and
at long last caused their foolish pro
ceedings to come to an end."
Copland also said he would have
liked a chance for Lloyd to go to trial.
"Frankly, I'm very disappointed," he
said. "Jennifer Lloyd isn't guilty of these
charges. Her ability to testify for the
first time would have clearly demon
strated that she isn't guilty. This would
have been a chance to vindicate Jenni
fer Lloyd and clear her name."
Lloyd said she thought the impeach
ment proceedings of the past month had
caused much damage tocongress's repu
tation at the University.

lie speaking for housekeepers interested
in speaking to classes, Trapasso said.
Barbara Prear, a housekeeper, spoke
to two classes this summer and said the
response was very positive.
"We think it is very important be
cause a lot of students don't know what
our grievances are about," she said.
Housekeeper Larry Farrar spoke to .
Assoc iate Professor James Wilde's pub
lic policy class on Tuesday. Wilde said
that he was interested in making his
students more aware of local and cam
pus issues and that Farrar's visit related
to the curriculum of the course because
it dealt in part with public spending.
Wilde said his students were enthusi
astic about learning more about the
"I feel it's caused irreparable dam
age to our congress," she said. "They
look insincere, they look ridiculous.
"This really has been a difficult ex
perience for me. This was a game show
to them, and I was their victim."
Battle said he was disappointed that
the trial would not go on, but added that
he thought the prosecution had acted
fairly throughout the impeachment pro
cess. "I feel that we have acted in good
faith ethically, and we have not tried to
lobby votes," he said. "We've had other
means at our disposal ... which could
have done a lot more damage, but we
chose not to do that. I never asked
anyone for a vote, which is something
I'm sure the other side cannot say."
Battle said he did not plan to pursue
the charges any further through an ap
peal or other methods.
Jesse Helms at N.C. State Fair Wednesday
"I think they were very interested in
what he had to say," Wilde said. "They
had a chance to directly ask him ques
tions about their concerns."
Farrar was unavailable for com
ment. Stewart said he thought the house
keepers would raise student interest in
the issue by visiting classes.
"Basically we feel that the best way
for students to learn about the house
keepers is by seeing them face to face,"
Trapasso said she hoped increased
student involvement in the issue would
help the housekeepers attain their
goals. "There is a sense that the Uni
versity isn't doing enough about the
housekeepers," she said.
Trapasso said the committee was
encouraged by students like Joe
Andrews, a junior from Danville, Va.,
who is working on a speech communi
cation project about the housekeep
"We are looking into the gridlock
between the administration and the
housekeepers," Andrews said.
Trapasso said the housekeepers had
been very excited about the student
responsetotheirclassroom visits. "The
committee has shown that there is a lot
of good will out there," she said.

ing at noon today in the Campus Y. All
interested students are invited to at
