Although most students say they are optimistic about the
overall future of the United States, their views on specfic issues
reveal several serious concerns, a public opinion survey taken last
The survey, conducted by a Business Administration 261
research group, shows that 60 percent of UNC students say they
are generally optimistic about this country's future.
Crosstabulations indicate that males are more optimistic than
females (67.6 percent to 52.8 percent), students under 21 are more
optimistic than students over 21 (64 percent to 52.8 percent) and
sophomores are the most optimistic group with graduate
students being the most pessimistic (75.6 percent to 3 1.3 percent).
UNC professor of
said that the grim
market is a bad
market," Azar said. "They can't get jobs themselves. As for
sophomores being more optimistic, that's encouraging. They are
not looking for jobs now so they are more hopeful." The basic
problems women face when seeking equal employment
opportunities explains why males are more optimistic than
females, he said.
UNC students rated the economy as the worst problem in the
United States (32.7 percent), followed by energy (23.8 percent)
and' Iran (13.4 percent). Last year, students also chose the
economy first, followed by energy and taxes.
"If you have most people imagine in terms of the long run,
pessimists would rank the economy higher," Azar said. The
Iranian hostages are less of a serious problem because economy
and energy are closer to home, he said.
Azar also said that the poor state of the economy probably
explains why students said that the U.S. uses tax dollars
inefficiently (85 percent) and favor an amendment to require
Congress to balance the federal budget each year (54.6 percent).
"The federal budget, fiscal conservatism and opportunities for
jobs all conform to the same norms of the fears of the economy,"
The majority of UNC students oppose shutting down nuclear
plants (68.3 percent), but 70.7 percent said that the United States
and the U.S.S.R. would destroy each other in the event of a
Middle-East sympathies were split, with 33.3 percent favoring
Israel, 9.3 percent favoring the Arab nations and 43.1 percent
taking a neutral stance.
, "Most students are ignorant about the Middle East, and the
historical relationships with Israel in the past have kept that
number high," Azar said. "If the question of sympathies and
would they be willing to fight were asked, the number would be

Taylor recalls triumphs, outlines problems
By KAREN BARBER
Faculty, students, alumni and friends
of the University paid tribute Monday
night to Chancellor N. Ferebee Taylor,
whose eight-year tenure officially ends
Approximately 425 persons gathered
at a banquet in Taylor's honor sponsored
by the UNC Board of Trustees at the
Carolina Inn. Keynote speakers at the
dinner included Senior Class President
Janet Moss, Assistant Vice Chancellor
for Student Affairs Harold Wallace,
UNC English Professor Hugh Holman,
former - Director of Undergraduate
Admissions Roy Armstrong and trustee
Taylor's wife, Louise, and his three
daughters unveiled a portrait of Taylor
which will be placed in the chancellor's
suite in South Building along with
portraits of Taylor's predecessors.
Ralph N. Strayhorn, chairman of the
Board of Trustees, presented Taylor with
a silver box with the names of all past and
present members of the board engraved
oh its face.
"Our sorrow in losing him is very real,"
Holman said, speaking on behalf of the
faculty. "It is litigated in part because we
are going to have him as an active part of
a faculty of which he has been an active
part of the last eight years."
'No one has served this
Univesity more faithfully.'
UNC President William
"He has indeed prepared this
University for the long term," Wallace
said, speaking of Taylor's 1973 goal to
make UNC an open institution for all
students in the state, especially in regard
to minority students.
' "1 learned ...that we must prepare to be
patient, to criticize, and yes, to fail,"
Armstrong, speaking on behalf of
UNC alumni, said, "Tonight we have our
cake and we can eat it too, because you
are going to stay with us."
"He is not an administrator who only
talks shop," Moss said, speaking on
behalf of the student body. "He is
genuinely interested in students. The
chancellor has guided this University
through some of the most difficult times."
UNC President William C. Friday
toasted Taylor at the end of the banquet,
saying, "No one has served this
University more faithfully."
Taylor responded to the toast by
expressing gratitude to his family, the
trustees and to all who attended the
banquet. Taylor said of his wife Louise,
"She has decorated my life."
Taylor announced his resignation Aug.

Last Thursday was a special day for UNC
Chancellor Nelson Ferebee Taylor. The day marked
his 59th birthday.
This Thursday also will be a special day for Taylor.
On that day, he will step down after serving as UNC
chancellor for eight years. '
Appointed to the post Feb. 1, 1972, Taylor has
served as chancellor longer than any of his three
predecessors. He submitted his resignation to UNC
President William C. Friday on Aug. 21, when his
doctor advised him that the chancellorship might
place too great a strain on his recovery from a June 7
"1 have much peace of mind," Taylor said in an
interview last week, "I have spent the last many
weekends on paperwork that has been accumulating.
I'll have my desk completely clean, and I think we'll
have things in first-class shape for the new
Taylor and his wife plan to take a vacation to
Williamsburg, the first week in February, and visit
New York later in the spring.
"1 expect to spend the major part of the next six
months preparing for teaching law school," Taylor
added. He will join the UNC law school faculty next
fall to teach corporate law.
"I'm looking forward to teaching," he said. "1
think students, as they do with all teachers, will form
their judgments of me as the class goes along, and to
some extent, on how hard they perceive that their
teacher is working.

Trustees approve increase in health fee
By LYNN CASEY
Despite strong opposition from Student Body
President J.B. Kelly, the UNC Board of Trustees
Monday approved a proposal to increase student health
service fees by $7.50 per semester for 1980-81.
The trustees' approval will be sent to the UNC Board
of Governors, which has final authority to accept or
change the fee increase. The increase approved Monday
would be in addition to a $20 per semester increase
approved last fall.
Trustee Thomas W. Lambeth said the fee increase was
needed to pay higher state employee salaries, mandated,
by the N .C. General Assembly, and not for expansion of
health service programs.
Student health fees were increased by $40 per year last
fall but the increase later was reduced to $35 for the
academic year, because $5 of the fee increase was
earmarked to pay for services in the new health service
infirmary. Since the infirmary did not open until the
spring semester, several months behind schedule, the
Board of Trustees decided to decrease temporarily
student health fee increase.
Students paid $57.50 for fall health fees and $52.50 for
spring health fees. Students will be charged $57.50 per
semester next year plus $7.50 if the proposed fee increase
is accepted by the Board of Governors.
Kelly said he would continue to fight against the fee
increase when it is taken before the Board of Governors.
Kelly said he will ask for a review of student health
services to verify whether the services students are
paying for actually are needed.
"We need to survey students to see what their needs
are, what services they want, and what they are willing to
pay for," Kelly said.
"1 may seem unreasonable," Kelly told the trustees,
"but I'm sorry. 1 have to be against a fee increase until a
study is done."
Kelly said a study of student health needs had not been
done since 1974, adding that he believes the needs of
students have changed.
Kelly said he was concerned by the price of services
and the levels of services offered to students.
UNC Chanccllor'N. Ferebee Taylor told the trustees
that an evaluation of student health services could not be
done until next fall because the new infirmary is not
Taylor said he and Student Health Service Director
Dr. James A. Taylor would request that a national
organization for student health services evaluate the
services offered by the new infirmary.

far to provide ihe best facility for students, I don't think

After walking past the Carolina Grill
about half a dozen times, I stumbled into
the Chapel Hill Chamber of Commerce
and asked the nice-looking secretary how
I could get to "Touch for Health." She
giggled and told me to go around the

I found my way and slowly walked up
the stairs, looking at the names on each
door. Finally I found it. Room 9, "Touch

tall, curly haired man sitting at a desk. 1
figured he had just had a massage himself
and was waiting to pay. But much to my
surprise, he was the masseur, the one who
was supposed to give me a massage.
There were no blonde sexy women like 1
had always heard of. Just him, Steve
Rizzuto and me.
Rizzuto told me to sit down in a small
white chair and relax while he went to get
some coffee. I could do anything but
relax. I was so worried about what was
about to happen that I even thought
about dashing out the back way.
I looked around the tiny room and saw
a license on the wall from the town of
Chapel Hill. This made me feel a little
better. I also noticed a book shelf with
about a dozen books, such as Natural
Healing and Listening to the Body. I
began to calm down and to tell myself
that this was really a legitimate place and
that everything would be okay.
Rizzuto quickly came back and said we
would get started. My heart began to

had me pegged right off.

The town of Chapel Hill's recently

reveals that the town has met many of its
goals, but it also shows that women and
minorities still represent a small
percentage of top level municipal
Chapel Hill Town Manager Gene
Shipman said Monday that the town's
Affirmative Action goals may be revised
substantially in the 1980s.
The report, which is based on July 1979
employment figures, shows that two of
the town's 20 top officials and
adminintrators are minorities and three

13 percent more than the town' average
salary. Minority cmplovcci earn an
average of $11,712 per year. 8 percent
