Pecked house shows for
Uecleral moneyo cut
By BERNIE RANSBOTTOM ,
- The UNC Student Aid Office, which in
recent years has funded every student
who applied and could show financial
need, has come up short of funds for the
1978-79 academic year and summer
New applicants for student aid,
students who applied after the March I"
.filing deadline set by the office last spring
and students who requested additional
funds have been notified by the office that
no additional awards can be made until
"We may have allocated money to
students vwho may not appear for some
reason," said William M. Geer, director
of student aid. "Those funds which are
not claimed will be reassigned to those
who applied late in the order we received
their applications, but getting the records
in order will take some time."
Geer attributed the funding shortage to
several causes. Primarily, it was induced
by a reduction in UNCTs allocation of
National Direct Student Loan funds

Despite voiced opposition and the

John Temple, vice chancellor for
business and finance, said Wednesday he
plans to talk again with neighborhood

trustees before actual construction
To halt construction of the building on
the southwest corner of Hooper Lane and
Boundary Street, "University trustees

received $1.5 million in NDSL funds in
1976, and $1.4 million in 1977, but only
.$789,594 for the 1978 academic year.
Other federally funded aid programs
increased their allocations to UNC for
1978, however, yielding a total federal
fund allocation of $1.7 million in 1978
compared to $2.3 million last year.
. "At the same time that our funds are
being cut back," Geer said, "new
demands have Jbeen made upon us.
"Inflation means that it costs more per
student for total funding." Geer
estimated that inflation has pushed the
cost of a year's college expenses up by
$150 per student.
The office funded 5,754 students in
1977, yielding a total cost of inflation to
the office of more than $863,000.
And aid awards for the 1978 summer
sessions increased 50 percent over those
for 1977, Geer said, yielding an additional

The -document was filed last week in response to a
class-action suit charging law school and University
administrators witfi practicing reverse discrimination in
The plaintiffs, Patricia Bostick of Raleigh and Steven
Rader of Charlotte, filed the suit in federal court April
1 5. They are charging U niversity officials with admitting
less-qualified black students over certain white students.
Both Bostick and Rader were refused admission to the
UNC School of Law, but later were admitted to law
schools at other universities.
"Students admitted to classes entering the School of
Law were selected under a policy based primarily, but

graduate school offices.

Temple said. "We looked on the main

roads also were considered, but the closer
Boundary Street location was favored.
Hodgson said 10-15 professors visit the
press each day, so the new building
should be near campus.
Temple said another advantage of the
location is that employees of the press

The University on Wednesday
guaranteed Carrboro at least three weeks
of bus service while negotiations
continued for full-time service.
John L. Temple, vice-chancellor for
business and finance made the
announcement after he met with
Carrboro Mayor Bob. Drakeford,
Carrboro Alderman Doug Sharer and
Student Body President Jim Phillips.
Temple said the University will
contract with Chapel Hill for Carrboro
servicethe C route and the N route
extension on last year's schedule. At
that time the C route ran weekdays, from
6:55 a.m. to 6:10 p.m. with ,20rminute
headways (time between stops). The N
route will continue to run weekdays from
7:33 a.m. to 5:56 p.m. with 10 to 45
minute headways and on Saturdays from
8:20 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Service on the C route-will begin
Monday but Temple said the N-route
extension may not begin until later in the

not exclusively, on the use of admissions index
numbers," wrote Elizabeth Bunting, the assistant state
attorney general representing the defendant school.
Admissions officers assign each applicant an index
number based on the student's Law School Admissions
Test and his undergraduate grade point average,
according to legal briefs filed with the federal court clerk
Minority students whose scores were at or below the
minimum index still could be admitted, however, if-extra-curricular
factors indicated they could perform
well in law school, Bunting said.
"Faculty policy also permits the law school to
consider applicants whose physical handicaps or
cultural, educational and or economic backgrounds
appear to have disadvantaged them in competing with
the majority of candidates solely on the basis of index
numbers," the state attorney wrote.
Jt Consideration of such non-academic factors portray a
more complete picture of a minority student's chances of
successfully completing three years at the law school,

said. "That level would depend on what
we can afford."
He said the level would be near the
$31,300 offered to help Carrboro run the
system. . :
Temple advised students to go ahead
and buy bus passes. "If the service in three
weeks is somewhat lower than the level
they expected we will refund their monev
on a pro-rated basis," he said.
"The University made a reasonable
offer," Phillips said after the meeting.
"They are paying for a service that should
be provided by the town.: It shows the
University sees the need and feels a
responsibility to provide service."
The group will start negotiating again

Drakeford said after the meeting. "I think
we made some progress." ;

Carrboro officials have attempted to get
the University to increase its funding.
Temple said the problem is that
Carrboro wants a level of service equal to
that in Chapel Hill.
"Carrboro knows it can't provide that
kind of service," he said Wednesday
before the meeting. "They want to see
how much they can get out of the
University. They want more than .they
can afford. We're willing to participate
with them but not to fund them."
Temple said Carrboro wants "to
increase service during class hours, add
summer service and night service with the
help of University funds. Temple said the
present level of service is adequate.

He said the University has. pledged
$31,000 to Carrboro but that it probably
will sell 1,000 bus passes at $36 each. At
that rate, he maintained the University

The University raised the pass price from

The N.C. General Assembly, when it

enforcement of laws Concerning mixed

laws specifying under what conditions
mixed drinks would be sold.

opposes mixed-drink - sales in the
uncertainty of regulations under which
the liquor would be sold.

on," Mansfield said. "The conditions of

"The administration was authorized to admit up to 20
candidates under this aspect of the policy," Bunting
wrote. "But candidates whose records revealed
significant promise (despite the index score) could be
admitted only after review and approval by the
Admissions Policy Committee (of the law school)."
In 1977, all nine minority students offered admission
under the special admissions policy enrolled in the
school, the document eays. Of 14 offered admission in
1976, 13 enrolled. The year before, 14 were offered
admission and 13 accepted.
The full law faculty adopts admissions policies for the
school, the suit says. The UNC Board of Trustees
approved the law school admissions program in
