Professors' letter seeks tenure boMcy
By Anna Griffin
Two award-winning professors are
asking other noted instructors to join
them in calling for a re-evaluation of the
University tenure policy.
In a letter dated Nov. 20, political
science Professor Joel Schwartz and
history Professor Peter Filene call on
their colleagues to voice concern about
the tenure policy, citing what they call a
lack of commitment to quality teaching.
"On paper, University rules give
equal weight to research, service and
teaching. We endorse that perspective,"
the letter states.

Former Democratic presidential can
didate Michael Dukakis said Wednes
day that President-elect Bill Clinton
was adamant about promoting national
awareness of the need to develop a
comprehensive health-care system in a
lecture at the UNC School of Public
Although Dukakis has been credited
with being the presidential candidate
who brought the health-care reform is
sue to the forefront, the former Massa
chusetts governor gave the honor to
"The presidential candidate who re
ally elevated this issue is Bill Clinton,"
said Dukakis, who ran for president in
1988 on the Democratic ticket, losing to
President George Bush. "Our system is
obviously a health-care system in need
of reform," he said.
Dukakis was introduced by Kenneth
Thorpe, UNC associate professor of
health policy and administration, who
was recently named to the Clinton team
responsible for developing the president-elect's
national health-care pro
posal. One of the reasons for health care's
spiraling costs that Dukakis highlighted
was the exorbitant malpractice fees in
surance companies were charging doc

Library gets largest gift ever at ceremony
By Thanassis Cambanis
A-uistant University Editor
A day after the Class of 1 993 pledged
$365,000 to the struggling University
library system, an alumnus gave the
Academic Affairs Library a trust fund
in excess of $1 million the largest
such donation ever at UNC.
Ben Jones, a private investor and
1950 UNC graduate, announced his gift
at the retirement ceremony for Univer
sity Librarian James Govan.
The University held a reception in
honor of Govan's 19 years of service as
"Regrettably, the University's prac
tice does not always live up to its rules.
A professor will be promoted who has
shown minimal teaching ability but has
published heavily. Meanwhile, a super

The letter was sent to 1 12 tenured
faculty members who won undergradu
ate teaching awards between 1960 and

how long either case would take.
Hie housekeepers attempted a Step

year but were not allowed to follow
through on the complaint as a group.

system, must be filed individually.

housekeepers are calling for better

Jones announced his gift as part of
the ceremony. He said that he would
place $ 1 ,066,000 in an annuity trust and
that after his death the interest would
form a library endowment called the
Thomas Wolfe Library Fund.
Govan's active fund raising was re
sponsible for Jones' gift going to the
library system, Jones said. "During the
three brief years I have known him, Jim
(Govan) has pointed out to me the need
for money at the library."

the game to an official close, Hokie
guard Shawn Smith and Tar Heel re
serve Larry Davis embraced at midcourt
ments, Jones said. "Everybody uses the
libraries, but it doesn't really have a
constituency," he said.
Govan said the donation came as a
complete surprise to him.
Chancellor Paul Hardin said that de
spite Jones' modesty, the gift was his

ever given to the library," he said.

specific cases," Schwartz said.
"We have to address the abstract
issues. It' s a question of the University' s

But the game was far from a gimme.
Despite UNC's 15-point halftime
lead, the Hokies pestered the Tar Heels
throughout the second half, staying
within striking range until less than
three minutes remained.
It was at that point the 2:41 mark
that George Lynch's jump shot gave
UNC a 75-54 lead. And UNC head
coach Dean Smith responded by send
ing in the trio of Ed Geth, Travis
Stephenson and Davis.
Smith's insertion of these three into
the lineup is a tell-tale sign that the
game is capped, much like former Bos

famed lighting of the cigar.
