Regents reject two-company divestment plan

(coniused froamPage171

WCCAA members also expressed
dismay that the Regents were con-
sidering only limited divestiture. "We
think the gesture in the end is really a
hollow one," said Debbie Duke. "Since
you've shown us you respond only to
pressure, we'll continue to apply
pressure."
Also among the historionics used by
the WCCAA was a move coming at the
close of the meeting. As all the Regents
stood up at the end of the session the
protesters also rose together, and WC-
CAA spokesman Jemadari Kamara
called for a "moment of silence" for the
way in which the crowd's concerns had
been addressed.
Coalition members had mixed reac-
tion to the proceedings. "We weren't
the most organized group, but we
showed what assholes they (the Regen-
ts) are," said WCCAA member Duke.
MAKE AN INVESTMEA

WCCAA members said they will try
to persuade the Administration not to
consider the matter till fall, in order
that more students could attend.
Earlier in the day the Board
discussed contractual arrangements
and the construction methods for the
Hospital Replacement Project. The
Regents specifically discussed the
merits and pitfalls of fast-tracking, or
building before the design is finished.
Due to a lack of expertise among
Board members, they voted to approve
the hiring of a consul nt to aid in the
interpretation of all the potential effec-
ts of fast-tracking.
At the same time, the Board reviewed
the proposed 1979-1980 University
Hospital budget. The Board
unanimously approved the proposal af-
ter brief discussion.
Smith also made a brief announ-
cement at noon that Flint Chancellor
William Moran had been offered and
had accepted a position as a chancellor
at the University of North Carolina.
