Moore said Tuesday it is hard to tell how
well the Chapel Hill store will do. "We just,
opened Monday," he said, "so it's too early
to tell about the market here."
Bui the store's manager, Mac Crawford of
Chapel Hill, said he thought there was a local

"Business has been good so far," he said.

"I think our dorm prices are among the
lowest in the state," Hawkins said.
Betsey Jones, Residence Hall Association
(RH A) president, said the NCSU dorm rents
were . lower-, for two. reasons. ; "State's
residence life program is not as extensive as
UNC's," Jones said, "their staff is not as
large and they don't offer as many services."
Jones also mentioned that NCSU's
maintenance operation is completely state
supported, while UNC's physical plant is
Both UNC and NCSU face a dorm rent
increase next semester, but UNC's increase
will be higer.
The projected dorm increase for UNC is
approximately 14 per cent, while North
Carolina State's increase is set at $20, only a
12.5 per cent increase.
Hawkins said he did not expect any
problems from students about the dorm rent
"I think most students here realize that
there is no fat in our budget," Hawkins said.
"We met with student groups throughout the
campus and explained the increase, and they
realized the necessity of it."
Hawkins said the increase in dorm rent
reflected a 60 per cent increase in utilities
prices over the past two years.
H igh utilities have also forced the increase
in dorm rates at UNC. Men's dorms will go
up by $30 to $35, while co-ed and women's
rates .will face a $25 to $30 increase.
Jones said UNC's differential dorm rates
began with a proposal by Dr. Frank Porter
Graham, former UNC president, that
women's dorms should be more expensive
than men's dorms.
"That is why the women's dorms are so
much nicer," Jones said.
Jones noted that although men and
women's dorm rates will increase
proportionately, an attempt is being made to
upgrade men's dorms.
dollars, the customer can see the whole reel.
The Now Book Store also sells the films,
with topics just as diverse as the magazines.
The films can be purchased for $20 or rented
daily for $5, with a $20 deposit.
Crawford said a Chapel Hill policeman
came into the store Wednesday, looked at a
film and the literature, and told him that the
only potential problem might be some of the
objects in the display case.,
Blake said he did not know if prohibiting
display of any of the devices was necessary.
"The majority of the stuff in here is the
same thing that local courts have faced
before," Blake said, "and they couldn't do
anything about it then."
John Carmody, owner of Clarence's Bar
and Grill, said he had no complaints about
the book store. "It's fine for them to be our
neighbor," Carmody said. "A building was
rented and they have a permit."
Ernest Gray of the Ernest Gray Insurance
Agency Inc., also a neighbor of the book
store, said he felt a Chapel Hill market did
exist for the porno material. "Any place that
holds the world streaking record should
definitely have a market for this stuff," Gray

Shetley: late profs
raise book prices
by Vernon Loeb
"If faculty members could get their textbook lists in on time, it would mean a savings of
$75,000 to $80,000 each year for students," Thomas Shetley, Student Stores general
manager, said Wednesday. .
"I'll deny until I'm blue in the face that we're overcharging in the textbook department,"
Students, however, continue to feel they are getting "ripped-ofF by the Student Stores. A
Student Consumer Action Union (SCAU) survey taken last spring showed 87 percent of the
students polled felt Student Store prices were either "high" or "too high."
But a SCAU pricing survey last semester showed the entire store compared favorably with
many local merchants.
"A general cynicism runs through this country, and I think it's deserved," Shetley said.
"But sometimes somebody like me gets caught in it unfairly."
Students are especially cynical in their view of the textbook department, Shetley said. He
thinks many students really do get a bad deal buying and selling textbooks and that because
they often receive, for example, only $4 for a $15 textbook, they think the Student Stores is
Receiving only $4 for a $ 15 book results from one of two things, Shetley said. "Either the
book is no longer being used for a course, or a faculty member was late in sending in a book
The 1975 spring semester book orders were due from faculty members on Oct. 15, 1974.
One zoology professor turned in her list on Jan. 6, 1975, requesting 450 copies of a text which
retailed at $15.25, Shetley said. The used price of the book was $11.
-The Student Store bought copies of that-book last fail from students at $4 per copy.
intending to sell them to a used book dealer, he said.
"Had we known we were going to use this book we would have paid $7.50 to students
selling it last fall. Had we been notified, we could have gotten out into the market and
supplied a used book for each student in the course," he said.
As a consequence, most students taking the course this semester had to purchase a new
book, paying an extra $5.25, while those students who took the course last semester lost $3.50
in trade-ins. .
"And this is not a unique case," Shetley said. "It happens all the time."
Because the Intimate Bookshop receives its book lists from the Student Store, students
purchasing books there also lose money when faculty members turn in late book lists,
Barbara Brown, an Intimate employee, said. v
"We charge a lower price for used books than the Student Store, but our new book prices
are the same," she said. , -
Shetley wrote in a recent letter to faculty members that if book lists are received on time,
"we will be able to provide good textbook selection at the lowest expense to the student."
Candidates' back on

Rick Bryant, chairman of the Elections
Board, announced Thursday that George
Bacso and Brad Lamb can run as CGC co
candidates from the James Dormitory
District (On-Campus IV). They had been
removed from the ballot Tuesday.
The decision is the latest development in a
dispute over whether CGC candidates can
serve as co-representatives.

One other candidate, Mike Dixon, is

Fox says his objections are based on a
clause in the Student Government
Constitution that says the CGC "shall be
composed of 20 elected councilors," and on a
line in the election laws which reads, "Each
district shall elect one representative."
"1 think Rick overstepped his bounds,"

constitution said this. The only reason I

against Little were "utterly ridiculous."
Little is charged with murder in the Aug.
27, 1974, stabbing death of jailer Clarence G.
Alligood, 62, at the Beaufort County Jail.
She was in jail at the time pending appeal of a
breaking and entering conviction, and
" Alligood was found dead in her cell.
Little escaped, but later surrendered to
authorities and is now being held at the State
Women's Prison in Raleigh pending an April

murder charge. The $100,000 was raised in a
national fund drive by various civil rights
Paul and others have contended that Little
acted in self-defense if she killed Alligood,
defending herself from a sexual attack.
Alligood's body was unclothed from the
waist down when discovered in her cell.

field secretary, who arranged for Little to
give herself up, is now serving a six-month
sentence for blocking traffic during an

he is on a hunger strike to protest the charges
