"There's a difference between the
naked and the nude," asserted Prof.
Stephen Tonsor at yesterday's Senate
Assembly meeting, regarding the
question of disclosure of faculty
salaries. Reports from the Committee
on Administrative Costs and the Senate
Advisory Review Committee (SARC)
were also heard at the meeting.
Because faculty members often must
be aware of salary amounts to
deliberate effectively on promotion and
tenure issues, Tonsor believes the
disclosure of faculty salaries for this
purpose, in lists which would omit
specific names, is far different from
disclosures merely to satisfy curious
persons.
SEVERAL OTHER Assembly mem-
bers opposed Tonsor's view, referring
to a faculty survey which indicated that
faculty members oppose disclosure by
an almost two to one margin.
Further discussion of the matter was
postponed until the February meeting.
Allen Spivey, chairman of the Com-
mittee on Administrative' Costs,
presented the summarized results of a
study assessing trends in the Univer-
sity's budget allocations to research,
instruction and administration.
Referring to non-instructional fun-
ctions of the University, which include
general administration, libraries, and
student service, Spivey said, "Student
aid underwent a considerable increase
in proportion to other non-instructional
functions." The study which compares
the period of 1969-70 with 1977-78 showed
a more than doubling in the percentage
alloc'ated for student aid of all the non-
instructional allocations.
ALL OF THE non-instrucitonal fun-
ctions had at least a modest increase in
their budget allocations except for
plant improvement which was
allocated over $3 million in 1969-70 and
only $810,000 in 1977-78.
Spivey said he walked around campus
and saw that it was obvious that less
money was being spent on the upkeep of

some University buildings because of
their appearance.
SOME OF THE figures in the report
were higher because of inflation,
Spivey said. Utility budgets increased
at an average annual rate of ap-
proximately 27 per cent, he added.
"Fringe benefits are going up
rapidly," Spivey said, "they are absor-
bing larger amounts of money."
In the period of 1969-70 fringe benefits
averaged over $19,000 for each full-time
instructor. 1977-78 saw a 67 per cent in-
crease to just over $32,000, an annual
growth rate of 6.62 per cent.
PROF. FREDERICK Bartman,
SARC chairman, then relayed the
opinion of SARC committee members
that "SARC is not an effective grievan-
ce committee for faculty members."
One SARC committee member cok-
mented that working on the committee
was "discouraging, disappointing, and
dismaying" because the lowest echelon
of the administration has veto power
over SARC recommendations.
SARC currently can submit only ad-
visory decisions on grievance cases to
the administration. Bartman suggested
that SARC decisions might be made
binding upon the administration to lend
more clout to the committee.
Bartman also said that SARC could
make its cases public to pressure the
administration, but acknowledged that
some degree of administrative
cooperation would then be lost.

Paroled Wilmington 10 members
Reginald Epps and Wayne Moore an-
swered questions and encouraged sup-
port for their cause at an informal
gathering, Saturday night at Trotter
House.
According to Moore, "The state is not
concerned with who done it, just who to
stick it to." He said there is "no way for
the Wilmington 10 to receive justice."
About 40 invited supporters braved
the cold to listen to the civil rights ac-
tivists, who spent close to six years in
jail, convicted of conspiracy and
firebombing in North Carolina.
THE NATIONAL Alliance Against
Racist and Political Repression
(NAARPR) hosted Epps and Moore.
The group is a major supporter of the
Wilmington 10, a case which has been
described as one of the most blatant
examples of political repression in the
United States today.
The Wilmington 10 were convicted in
1972 of fire-bombing a white-owned
grocery store in the height of civil
rights disputes in Wilmington, North
Carolina. All of the members are on
parole except Rev. Benjamin Chavis
who remains in prison.
Last November, the federal gover-
nment filed a friend-of-the-court brief
urging U.S. District Judge Franklin
Dupree to grant a writ of habeas cor-
pus, which would free Chavis from
prison and free the others of parole
restrictions. In its decision, the Justice
Department questioned the con-
stitutionality of the 1972 trial, which
convicted nine black men and a white
woman of the fire-bombing.
JUDGE DUPREE still has not acted
on the case and an appeal is tied up in,
his court.
Llenda Jackson, a member of the
NAARPR's national executive board,
expressed concern that Judge Dupree,
would make an impromptu announ-
cement as to when he would hear the
case, in order to keep his courtroom
from being jammed with supporters of
the 10. Jackson also speculated that
there would be another national
demonstration sometime in March. The
organization's last demonstration on
the White House was in March 1978.
Mdore said the judge would decide
whether there were errors in the
judicial process and whether a new
tiral would be granted. Jackson noted
that the judge, in a written statement
sent to the NAARPR, claimed that he

would not be swayed by the hundreds of
letters he has received from around the
world concerning the case. She also in-
dicated that the writing campaign
designed to pressure the judge would
continue.
NORTH CAROLINA officials have
repeatedly said there would not be a
new trial. The NAARPR maintains that
the state no longer has a case since the
prosecution's chief witnesses have
recanted.
At Trotter House Epps explained that
the 10 were singled out because of
Chavis' background in the civil rights
movement. Epps also claimed there
had been several unsuccessful attempts
"to getridof him (Chavis)."
Charged Moore, "The 10 represent
North Carolina's history of
discrimination. Racism is just as
strong or stronger in Nortb Carolina
now as it was then - Now it has been
dressed up."
North Carolina Gov. James Hunt
declined to pardon the 10, but did
reduce their sentences. He has said his
decision would not be altered by federal
action. ,
"The governor is moving to satisfy
both left factions and right factions
when dealing with us," said Moore. "I
think he has succeeded. Hunt passes out
pacifiers, token blacks in token
places."
MOORE SPECULATED that the
governor's decision to reduce the sen-
tences was due to a feeling of inter-
national pressure. President Carter's
stand on human rights has made the
"issue international and no longer
local."
E pps described a double standard for
justice, in which "the rich buy their
way and the poor march their way." He
added that it is "difficult to separate
justice and politics.'
Epps continued, "The movement
does not want to see apathy because
apathy don't care." "Students today,
Epps said, "are not apathetic, just
caught up in a heck of a mess."
