WASHINGTON Watergate prosecutors revealed Thursday there is a 19-minute
gap on a tape recording of the meeting where President Nixon and John D.
Ehrlichman apparently discussed the Ellsberg break-in for the first time.
Assistant Prosecutor Richard Den-Veniste mentioned the gap during a hearing
before U.S. District Judge John J. Sirica, but he did not elaborate on it.

he first learned the full details of the Watergate cover-up from John W. Dean III.

Kay Vandenborre, Promotion Director

Chapel Hill as having both a traditional and
an untraditional element in its character.;
"The Mall is something new for Chapel
Hill," she said. "A lot of people were in favor
of it; a lot were very much opposed. It's a
matter of reorientation." Vandefborre siad:
she thought the Mall had been accepted now. !
Business has been very good at the Mall, '
particularly since January, she added. ;

Executive Director of the Chapel Hill
Carrboro Merchants' Association Joe
Augustine said the Mall's effect on Chapel
Hill business could be seen.in the increase in
gross sales per month from year-to-year.
August 1973 gross sales were $1.1 million
greater than a year earlier. December was $2
million higher. February, 1974 showed an
increase of $1.3 million, and March, $1.5
"Most of this is a reflection of the increase
due to the Mall," Augustine said. "For the
first time in a long time the Mall has given
Chapel Hill a reasonable, if not favorable,
balance of trade, particularly with Durham."
Augustine said the Mall had kept some
shoppers in Chapel Hill who had previously
been going to Raleigh and Durham. Ivey's at ,
North Hills in Raleigh, for example, had
about 2,000 customers with charge accounts
from this area alone, he said. In addition to
transferring clientele from other areas, the
mall has found new customers in Chapel Hill
and brought customers from Hillsborough
and Pittsboro, he said.

Federal financial aid for UNC students
will be increased in -1974-75 by over $1
million, Director of Student Aid William
Geer announced Wednesday.
"If any student admitted to this University
has need, the Student Aid Office will meet
it," Geer said. "I'm glad we have this
additional money so many people can be
financed without any question. We do have
adequate funds for every student admitted to
this University, so everyone who feels a
pinch should apply."
The Student Aid Office received
allocation letters for the additional money
last week from the Department of Health,
Education and Welfare (HEW).
Geer said the federal Basic Educational
Opportunity Grant Program, initiated last
year for the benefit of incoming freshmen,
has been increased from $77,050 to $331,150
and extended to include sophomores.
This program is being gradually increased
toward eventual replacement of the federal
Supplemental Education Opportunity
Grants for students from the lowest income
group, which has been cut from $368,479 in
1974-75 to $297,097 next year.
The largest federal student assistance
program, the National Defense Student
Loan Fund, will offer over a million dollars
in loans to Carolina students next year.
"Under this program, we received a half
million more than in the previous year,"
Geer said. The University finances only

know that the two cannot co-exist because
there's a different direction to their
He said the mall seemed to emphasize
higher priced merchandise, particularly in
advertising, while the downtown area
continued to emphasize more practical
merchandising geared to students.
"Chapel Hill is unique. It has an
abundance of young people arid a greai
number of specialty shops, so it has become
an attraction in itself," he said.
Augustine said the CBD's 60 restaurants
were a large factor in drawing shoppers to
the downtown area.
Rosenbacher said there was a complete
difference between merchandising
downtown and at the Mall. "The downtown
merchants have kept their merchandising to
fit the mood and needs of the town of Chapel
Hill," he said.
Vandenborre said she saw no difference in
the merchandising at the Mall. "The prices
out here are no more or no less than
anywhere else." A generalization about
merchandising couldn't be made, she said,
because many of the stores at the Mall have
no counterpart in the CBD.
Dunn said Wednesday the dragnet arrests
would not have a significant impact on drug
distribution in North Carolina. "I think it
will probably slow it down for a few days,"
he said, "but it will not stop the drug traffic
by any means."

The Carolina Union, now cramped for
space, is to be expanded over. the next five
years. Parts of the planned expansion
include the addition of a third floor and a
new wing to the building. Some of this space
would be used for a movie theatre, and new
television and party rooms, Union Director
Howard Henry said.
"Other facilities planned include more
space for University-recognized
organizations and proposals for a satellite
health clinic," Student Body President
Marcus Williams said.
A satellite clinic would be similar to the
Student Health Service, but more
convenient to North Campus residents.
"We're also stressing facilities for
international students who no longer have
the facilities of Carr Dorm," Williams said.
The international Student Center was
evicted from Carr Dorm last month.
Proposals for other sendees and facilities
in the expanded Union are currently open.
Because of this, a student is to be appointed
by Williams to a committee studying
expansion of the Union.
This student is to collect diverse student
opinion to insure student input into plans for
the Union's expansion, Williams said.
Interviews for the student position on the
Union planning committee will be held in the
