an investigation by the State Bureau of
United Press International (UPI)

they emerged from a Catholic church

"His arm and leg have been numb
because the muscles and nerves were

circumstances could," Mrs. Harper said.

The final draft of the new University
policy on the use of electrical appliances
in residence halls was released Monday by
Robert Kepner, director of Residence
The new policy, developed after a
thorough survey by a private engineering
firm of the electrical capability of each
residence hall, goes into effect
Kepner said the new policy represents
a significant departure from the old
policy but does not indicate that all
restrictions on the use of electrical
appliances in the residence halls have
Results of the survey revealed the
University residence halls could be
divided into three categories:

A number of UNC freshmen decided Monday morning was
too late to attempt preregistration - so they decided to get in
line Sunday night. Sleeping bags and other appropriate items
unrestricted use of most tpes of
electrical appliances is safely permissible:
- those in which the Use of cooking and
heating applicances. because of their high
electrical draw, must be restricted for the
safety of the residents: - those in which
severe restrictions must be imposed
because of the low electrical capability of
the residence halls concerned.
The first category includes South
Campus dorms. Lower Quad dorms. Old
East, Old West and the new section of
Students living m these dorms are
permitted to use electrical appliances of
any variety as long as the total wattage of

time in a room does not exceed 1.00
watts, with a wattage restriction of 1.000
on any single appliance.

The arrests Monday are the latest in a
series of protests since the August 6

Students living in these dorms are
permitted to use a maximum of only 600

hotplates, broilers, toaster, popcorn
poppers and heaters in these dorms.
In addition, refrigerators used in these
buildings must be restricted to those of
normal running wattage of less than 100
Whitehead is the only dorm in the last
category and will continue to operate
under the restrictions of the old policy
until emergency rewiring is undertaken.

categories are not imposed arbitrarily but
to protect the safety of the residents
Kepner said the policy states that
"students should know the wattage of
each appliance they own" and "should
use them sequentially rather than
together at the same time."
Copies of the policy and a list of
wattage requirements of common
appliances will be posted on residence
hall bulletin boards, Kepner said.
According to Kepner, the University
will become aware of violations when
electrical problems, such as blown fuses,
arise on a circuit.
In such instances, said Kepner, the
rooms on the circuit will be inspected to
determine the cause of the electrical
problem. Possession of illegal electrical
appliances may lead to removal of the
appliances and a S20 fine.
