U.S. Sen. Terry Sanford addresses a press conference at the Washington
negative ads for
By Allison Taylor
DURHAM Democratic U.S. Sen.
Terry Sanford said negative campaign
ing and his recent illness were the rea
sons for his loss to Republican Lauch
Faircloth in Tuesday's election.
Sanford, D-N.C, spoke at a press
conference at the Washington Duke Inn
in Durham Thursday morning, two days
after Faircloth earned 52 percent of the
vote to oust him. Sanford, 75, was
elected to the Senate in 1986.
The Durham resident and UNC alum
nus developed an infected heart valve in
June 1991, but it was treated rapidly,
and he returned to the campaign trail.
Later, due to another bacterial infec
tion, Sanford developed an abscess on
the heart valve that required an opera

Officials at Davis Library, Berryhill

noon, University Police said Thursday.
The three buildings were searched
by University Police, who decided
against evacuating occupants.
The bomb threats at the library and
the two health affairs buildings were
reported to University Police by a "cred

DepoProvera as the first injectable con

for about three months. The drug is

Depo Provera uses a synthetic form of
the female hormone progesterone.
Norplant consists of five polymer tubes,

"It was a very bad political break for
me," Sanford said. "There wasn't any
thing to do but do it."
Following the operation, Sanford was
instructed not to exceed more than two
hours of activity per day.
"The first day out, I campaigned for
14 hours," Sanford said. "Then I real
ized what the doctor meant. It would' ve
been stupid not to follow'his advice."
The Sanford campaign also had or
ganized numerous groups of student
supporters in North Carolina, but he
said he was unable to visit campuses
because of his illness.
Sanford also criticized the Faircloth
campaign's use of negative advertise

candidate; they attempted ... to make

The injections are simpler and more
reversible than Norplant, Harris said.
"It's a big deal to have a Norplant in

minor surgical procedure."
The drug is a good choice for women
who cannot tolerate the hormone estro

"I don't need to tell you we had

Sanford said the amount of money
spent on campaigning was "obscene."
He then discussed a piece of legislation

men plit on lockuro
By Marty Minchin
Assistant University Editor
Male and female students have op
posing views on the recently installed
24-hour lockup of campus residence
halls, according to the results of a poll
conducted for The Daily Tar Heel.
The random-sample telephone poll
included 303 student responses from a
target population of 400, for a total
response rate of 76 percent Pollsters
interviewed students by telephone be
tween Oct. 25 and Oct. 28.
Sociology graduate student Richard
Miech conducted the random-sample
telephone poll for the DTH.
Out of the 163 students polled who
lived in campus residence halls, 44.8
percent said they were in favor of the
lockup, while 55.2 percent said they
were opposed to it.
Off-campus residents were more
evenly divided in their views on the
lockup. Out of the 140 students polled
who live off campus, 45.7 percent said
they supported the lockup, while 43.6
percent said they were against it.
When the results were broken down
by gender, a majority of women polled
were in favor of the lockup, while more
men were opposed to it.
Almost 60 percent of women polled
who live on campus and 60 percent of
women who live off campus were in
favor of the lockup.
Only 42.3 percent of women living
in dormitories and 30.3 percent of
women Li ving off campus said they were
opposed to the lockup.
Of the men polled, 22.4 percent who
live on campus and 26.2 percent who
live off campus supported the lockup.
But 37.8 percent of men who live on
campus and 31 percent who live off
campus said they did not agree with the
University Police Maj. Donald Gold
said he thought one reason more women
supported the lockup and more men
opposed it was that women had been the
victims of recent assaults on campus.
"The population that was most af
fected by the assaults happened to be
women," he said. "They feel a little
more vulnerable having been in prox
imity to these assaults."
Gold said students should take the

previously reported. But she is continu

which involved two men who were ar

raping four women in separate inci
dents this summer, he said.
Wilson said that when she was work
ing on multiple cases, she prioritized
them by the seriousness of the offense
and by the potential danger the suspect
posed to the victim and society.
"(The rape in Town House Apart
ments) has been worked on more than
some of the other cases," Wilson said.
Thompson said someone who had
committed a stranger rape posed more
of a threat than someone who had com
mitted an acquaintance rape.
Gruelle said an acquaintance rape
could be even worse than being raped
by a stranger because it was a breach of
cost between $ 1 5 and $20, while a three

UNC libraries still plagued
by budget woes, rising costs
By Melissa Dewey
University Library holdings rose
only slightly in 1991-92 because of a
low budget, state taxes and the rising
cost of serials,and University officials
say they are taking steps to prevent the
current situation from getting worse.
The Annual Report of the Univer
sity Library, issued Sunday by Uni
versity Librarian James Govan, re
vealed that appropriated funds for the
library system were up only 8. 13 per
cent this year since fiscal year 1990
91. Undergraduate Librarian David
Taylor said the small increase prob
ably was negated by other costs asso
ciated with running such a large li
State taxes also have cut into the
library budget, said Jaroslav Folda,
chairman of the Library Administra
tiveBoard, afaculty committee formed
to deal with such issues.
UNC-system schools must pay a
"use tax" on book purchases, and even
though the budget has stayed the same,
the tax has increased, Folda said. Pri
vateumversiuesin North Carolina and
schools in other states don't have to
pay such a tax, he said.
The price of serials also has in
creased to a "ridiculously high rate,"
In 1978-79, the net book budget for
the library system was $750,000, and
In 1992, the net book budget is
$542,101. The budget for aerials is
$1,570,740, nearly three times the
budget for books.
Foreign publishers charging out
landish subscription rates have caused
this surge in serial prices, Folda said.
"I'm hoping (President-elect Bill)
"My perception would be men don't
feel at risk," he said. "Women feel more
at risk than men do."

more than 30 departments on campus.
Concern about the economic status
of the UNC library system came to the
general public's attention because of
UNC's recent slip in national rankings
of colleges and universities.
In the most recent "U.S. News and
World Report" rankings, UNC fell
from 25th to 28th in the nation, a drop
due in large part to inadequate fund
ing of campus libraries.
Govan said that in recent years,
UNC's status as a national research
library bad dropped from 10th to 48th
because of budget shortages.
But the budget problems are not a
local phenomenon, Govan said.
"Nationwide, we' ve had to cut," he
said. "It's a research problem."
While most of the library budget
remained the same during 1991-92,
one area that increased was the "Other
Funds" category, which increased
about 10 percent This increase was
