i wa""n i 2The Daily Tar Heel Wednesday, January 15, 1986 Pta odd Mais a sflidky pcebleinni By GRANT PARSONS Staff Wnfer Faculty and housekeeping staff have removed campaign posters from walls in several campus buildings, and though it's a campaign violation for candidates to remove the posters, the University employees are following a sometimes-ignored administrative policy. A 1980 memo from the Physical Plant director to all deans, directors and department heads, reminded them of the policy and said: "Posters and announcements should be placed on bulletin boards rather than on walls or windows. The adhesive leaves marks which are often difficult to remove. "Housekeepers have been told to remove posters as they encounter them, the memo states. . Bruce Lillie, Elections Board chairman, said Tuesday, "There are often problems with posters coming down, but the problem has never been this acute." Candidates should talk with department heads before putting posters on surfaces other than bulletin boards, Lillie said. "After that, if they tear down posters where. . .(candidates) have been allowed to post them, well have to deal with that. "At least it's a policy that's fair to all candidates," he said. "If all candidates' posters are being taken down without any bias, that certianly means the election won't be biased." elections Lillie said he was working to get a uniform policy for the posters, but he didn't know how Tong it would take. "Not having a uniform policy is not acceptable," he said. "I can understand some professors being upset that the whole room is covered with posters, because that's distracting," he said. "Everyone must realize that compromises need to be made." There is an article in the election laws making it a campaign violation to damage University property with posters, Lillie said. The violation is punishable with a $5 fine plus the cost of repairing the damage. The posters also must be taken down within 96 hours after the polls .close, he said. "There has been a real effort in the past few years to make sure posters are taken down quickly. The students have shown that they can be responsible for the posters." Lillie said the only candidates who reported posters' being taken down had been David Venable and Michelle Killough, senior class president and vice president candidates, and Wade Lewis, a candidate for student body president. Lewis said Tuesday that about 75 of his posters had been taken from walls in Bingham, Greenlaw and Hamilton halls. He said he had been told that the posters were taken down as part of an administrative policy. "I do understand that it's a departmental rule," he said. "But they should have at least called me and given me time to take them down that'd be the ethical thing to do." Lewis said that he didn't think any one person was taking the posters down to sabotage his campaign but that the 25-by-38-inch posters might have been taken down because of their size. Joseph Flora, chairman of the English department, said all posters must be on a bulletin board if posted in Greenlaw. "We put up the biggest bulletin boards we could find," he said. "A few years ago, one of our committees studied this and recommended that all posters go on the bulletin boards. It's distracting if they're not." The posters taken down in Greenlaw were not necessarily taken down as part of a systematic cleaning of the building, Flora said. "In fact, people do tend to be more lenient during the political season." Hilda Medlin, an adrninistrative assistant for the speech department in Bingham Hall, said some posters had been taken down by the housekeeper. The policy prohibiting posters on bare walls "is a largely ignored rule," Medlin said. "But we happen to have a very good housekeeper in this building. So if it was mentioned in a committee meeting, I'm sure she took it to heart." Oemocrafe gear imp ioir Seraaffe race By CRYSTAL BAITY Staff Writer With six candidates filed at the State Board of Elections in Raleigh, the Democratic Party has a variety of contenders for the seat of ailing Sen. John P. East, R-N.C. Until Jan. 11, some political observers felt the party did not have a front-runner. Now it does. Former Gov. Terry Sanford announced his candidacy Saturday, reversing his September decision not to run. "We did not see the kind of field develop that most Democratic leaders around the state felt could win against the Republicans in the fall," Sanford said. "It's a pretty block-headed fellow who can't change his mind." Sanford served as governor from 1961-1964. He was president of Duke University from 1970 until his retirement in July, 1985. The five remaining candidates considered themselves still very much in the race. They are: Charlotte businessman William Belk; former Superior Court Judge Marvin Blount of Greenville; M in New York "NOISES OFF" was THE FUNiMIcbl bMUW ON BROADWAY." -NEW YORK TIMES On tour'NOISESOFFNs - "NON-STOP LAUGHTERS i00mmmti ST.

"Fountain" Odom; and Betty Wallace, a state education official in Raleigh. "You're going to see the (Democratic) candidates . . . helping each other along this campaign trail," Belk said. Belk, former national president of Young Democrats, endorsed the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings plan that would eliminate a federal deficit by 1991. He also said women should be allowed to make their own decisions about abortion. Blount, a newcomer in the political arena, said his inexperience would help. "I am new to politics and I believe that's an advantage," said Blount. "I think that the people of this state want a new kind of leadership, a leader with fresh ideas, with a different way of looking at things." Blount said he would endorse a plan to erase the federal deficit by 1991. He is also concerned with N.C. agriculture, unemployment and the environment, he said. Blount is a graduate of UNC and received a law degree from Wake Forest University. He became the youngest Special Superior Court Judge in 1970 at 30. Katherine Harper, president of Harper Companies International in Charlotte, stressed the four pillars of democracy: manufacturing, commerce, L agriculture and navigation.

Debra Hampton, Harper's press secretary. "The deregulation of government in those issues would solve (them) more easily, with less red tape." Harper is a Charlotte native and served in former Gov. Jim Hunt's senatorial campaign as Mecklenburg County financier. She co-chaired the finance committee for Charlotte Mayor Gant's re-election. Thomas L. "Fountain" Odom described himself as a "moderate and conservative Democrat." He said he favored a balanced budget and a freeze in spending levels. "I believe in a pay-as-you-go plan," he said. "If you don't have the money, don't spend it." The future of North Carolina's industries is an important campaign issue, Odom said. "I abhor what has been allowed to happen the last six years," he said. "We have allowed free trade to decimate our textile industry." Odom earned a B.A. degree in political science from UNC. He grad uated from the UNC School of Law in 1962. Since 1980, he has been on the Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners. Betty Wallace said she is proud not to be a "professional politician," and stresses a grass roots campaign. "I consider myself a different candidate from the others because IVe never aligned myself with the factions of the party, but have worked for the party as a whole," she said. Wallace would like to work on the N.C. economy, concentrating on textiles, tobacco and unemployment. She said she would expand educational opportunities in the public schools. Currently, she is deputy state superintendent of the N.C. Department of Public Instruction. Raised in Franklin, Wallace received her doctorate from the University of Georgia in 1980. She is past director of the Western Regional Education Center and past associate superintendent of Macon County schools.

He worked at Dorothea Dix Hospital in Raleigh for two years before returning to the University this year on a full scholarship. He also was a member of Omega Psi Phi fraternity. "I really feel like it's a tragic loss to the school, and it has shocked his classmates," said Jack Richman, associate dean of the School of Social Work. "We definitely feel the grief that's going on in the Henderson family." Maeda Galinsky, a professor in the school, said, "We're all pretty shook up about it." Richman said Henderson had been a bright student and would have made a good social worker.

Faircloth indicated Saturday during the Democratic Party's Executive Committee meeting he would seek the Democratic nomination. However former Gov. Terry San-ford's sudden entry into the race Saturday night created the possibility of a divisive primary campaign which would be detrimental to the party, Faircloth said. "I have indicated on many occasions that I would not run against Terry Sanford," Faircloth said in a prepared statement. Navy warships guard vessel WASHINGTON Two Navy warships guarded an American cargo vessel Tuesday in the Gulf of news in brief with the ship by the Iranian Army, Pentagon officials said. The White House indicated that Iran may have acted legally when the President Taylor was searched Sunday. The search was apparently conducted for war supplies bound for Iraq. White House spokesman Larry Speakes said the United States was trying to determine whether the search was "appropriate under the circumstances."

Job Bank, a computer service which began operation in June, provides a liaison between newspapers and those seeking journalism careers. MWe have 1500-1800 people on file, from publishers and editors to people who have just graduated," said Debra Bissinger, director of Job Bank. "There are about 350 papers that subscribe to the service." For a $50 fee, Job Bank will enter information from an application and the candidate's resume into a computer and keep it in an active file for six months, Bissinger said. The application asks for salary requirements, language skills, personal honors and special interests as well as education and employment records. Candidates also choose regional preferences, she said. "The service works best for those who are willing to move," Bissinger said. "If you only want to stay in one area, it is best to apply yourself." Parking Job Bank does not promise jobs, however, it simply passes information along to newspapers and magazines, Bissinger said. Prospective employers come to the service with a description of the position, and Job Bank provides the names and resumes of suitable applicants. Editors can then contact the candidates personally. "We have seen about 90 people placed (since June)," she said. "There are a number of applicants whoVe been passed around and a lot more with contacts and interviews." Bissinger stressed that the referral service was not exclusively for reporters. Job Bank provides opportunities in newsroom management, editorial positions, graphics and photography as well, she said. Bissinger added that members of the Society of Professional Journalists, Sigma Delta Chi, received a discounted fee, because Job Bank is officially sponsored by the society.
