"We're hoping that by doing that, students will soon realize
they are looking out for their own future," said Morehead
Confederation Gov. McRay Simmons.'
"We're going to mostly try to see what the students can do to
cut down energy, like taking shorter showers and turning off the
television when they go out of the room," he said.
"It's going to be more or less a consciousness-thing to make
people aware of how much energy they're using," said William
Porterfield, RHA president.
"It's amazing to walk thr ought this campus late at night and
see how many lights are on, and it's usually the bathrooms," he
RHA plans to have a list of ways to conserve energy placed on
the cube and published in The Daily Tar Heel. Each week a
different way to conserve energy will be posted in the dorms.
"The University itself has been working on it (conserving
energy) for several years now and plans to continue to work on
it," said Russell Perry, assistant director of operations for.
The housing department has started replacing incadescent
lights in North Campus dorms with fluorescent lights, and has
turned dormitory heating systems down, Perry said.
"They're (the heating systems) as low as we can make them," he
said. Perry said temperatures in the dorms range from 68 to 74
degrees, but are hard to measure because the dorms are built with
radiator systems. "A radiator type system is the hardest to
control," he said.

By BETSI SIMMONS
"Die for your country now avoid the rush," read the
banner that hung on the side of Old East Tuesday morning.
Although the residents are not quite as ready to die as the
sign implied, they are concerned with increasing world
tensions which may lead them into the armed forces.
"It was a spur of the moment joke inspired by our great (Old
East) governmental leaders," said resident Dan Bostick, one
of the five creators of the sign.
"We were interested to see if anyone would take notice,"
said Clay Andrews, one of the five. "The sign was more or less
to get people thinking."
The sign apparently attracted much attention from many
students concerned by President Carter's pledge to revive the
selective service system in the face of Soviet military actions in
southwestern Asia, Andrews said.
"Someone even came by to say they loved it," he said.
When asked how he felt about the draft personally, Bostick
said, "If someone is dropping a bomb in my backyard I'll go.
But if our involvement isn't warranted, I couldn't possibly be
for the draft.
"Fifty ways to leave your country" was another slogan the
group created. "We're thinking of having that one
copyrighted and published. All in fun of course," Bostick

UNC President William C. Friday announced Tuesday the
Board of Trustees has given him the names of three persons
recommended to succeed Chancellor N. Ferebee Taylor, who
has resigned his post effective Thursday.
"It will be my duty to choose one person from that list to
present to the, Board of Governors at their meeting Feb. 8,"
An interim chancellor will not be appointed to fill the vacancy
between the time Taylor steps down and the Board of Governors
meeting, Friday said. The University's vice chancellors and other
members of the chancellor's staff will oversee Taylor's duties
until Feb. 8, he said.
This solution was chosen to avoid disrupting one person's
schedule by having him or her singled out to serve as a full-time
interim chancellor, Friday said.
Trustee Chairman Ralph N. Strayhorn, also chairman of the
chancellor search committee which selected the three names,
informed Friday of the trustees choice in a verbal report
Friday said interim arrangements may have to be made if the
Board of Governors does not approve the nominee offered at the
Feb. 8 meeting.
Neither Friday nor Strayhorn would comment on the
qualifications or background of the three nominees.
Taylor resigned after serving eight years in the chancellorship
when his physician advised him that the strain of the office might
hamper his recovery from a June 7 heart attack.

The period for red measles
vaccinations for UNC students has been
extended past Wednesday to
accommodate the estimated 5,000
students who may be susceptible to it, Dr.
McCutchan, Student Health Services
physician, said. Students who have never
had red measles or have not had a
vaccination since 1967 are considered
susceptible. "They can come in between 9
a.m. and 5 p.m. as long as it takes,"
McCutchan said. "But if they wait two
weeks to go, they may have the measles."
Approximately 600 students reported
to the infirmary for inoculation Tuesday.
All available health service personnel
were used to administer the vaccines,
which took about 10-15 minutes.
The inoculations were prompted by an
outbreak of red measles in Orange
County and the report of one confirmed
case in a UNC student. No new cases have
been reported at UNC, McCutchan said.
Orange County, especially the Chapel
Hill-Carrboro school system, has fared as
well. Paul Renard. of the State
Department of Health said the total in the
county was up from Monday's 16 to 19 on
"At present we have one case reported
in Hillsborough, 13 in Carrboro
Elementary School, three in Carrboro
Methodist Day Care across the street,
one at UNC and one pre-schooler,"
Renard said. Three cases in Johnston
County and one each in Connecticut and
Virginia also have been reported.

Students are advised against taking the
red measles vaccine if 1) they are sick with
more than a cold, 2) they are allergic to
rabbits, ducks, eggs or an antibiotic
called neomycin, 3) they have cancer,
leukemia or lymphoma, 4) they have a
disease that lowers the body's resistance
to infection, or 5) they are taking drugs,
such as cortisone, that lowers resistance
It was previously reported that anyone
who has ever taken cortisone should not
receive the vaccine, but the warning
applies only to those who are currently
taking cortisone, health officals said.
Pregnant women should not receive
the vaccine, and any woman who is
vaccinated should wait three months
before becoming pregnant, SHS officials
Health officials said one out of five
vaccinated students may have side effects
from the vaccine, including a rash or
slight fever up to two weeks later. One out
of four persons may have mild swelling or
aching joints. The symptoms usually last
two or three days.

A revamped orientation program for fall 1980 has ,
done away with the old orientation commission
chairmanship in favor of a close working relationship
between a student coordinator and the University Office
of Student Affairs.
The new system should eliminate many problems
faced by the commission chairman, said Roslyn
Hartmann, Student Affairs orientation coordinator.
"That person (the orientatiori chairman) has had so
many things to juggle," Hartmann said." Past orientation
chairmen have had to simultaneously keep track of the
activities of several University departments and
programs planned by the orientation commission, she
Hartmann said she will work closely with whoever is
selected to fill the student coordinator spot in planning
the orientation program for next fall.
Referring to rumors that Student Affairs is
attempting to diminish student involvement . in the
orientation process, however, Hartmann said, "in no
way is this undercutting the decision-making power of
the students involved.
"All of us at this University appreciate the uniqueness
of our orientation process because of its student
volunteers," she said, adding that most schools have a
paid professional orientation staff.
The Office of Student Affairs is responsible for
planning and implementing orientation but has always
used student input and decision-making, Hartmann
said. "There is no way we will ever change that," she said.
"From those I've spoken with who have interviewed
for the position (of student coordinator), the change is
looked at as a real move toward solid support," she said.
" Lisa Harper, Fall 1979 orientation commission
chairman, declined to comment on the new system.
Residence Hall Association President William
Porterfield said he was pleased with the change. The new
system should improve communication between
Student Affairs and the Orientation Commission, he
"Most important to us (RHA), Hartmann has already
begun to communicate with the governors in the
individual areas," he said.
Jody Harpster, acting-director for Residence Life in
the housing department, said the change is a positive
Poll shows BSM, CGA fundin.

Third in a five-part series
Students at UNC generally are opposed to University funding
of such student organizations as the Black Student Movement
and the Carolina Gay Association, according to a poll conducted
for The Daily Tar Heel.
But for the most part, students say they believe their student
fees are used efficiently by the University.
Of the 208 students polled, 46 percent opposed University
funding of the BSM and 34.2 percent favored such funding.
(Some students did not respond to all the questions in the
survey.) A cross tabulation of the results by race revealed that
more whites are opposed to BSM funding (50 percent opposed,
27.3 percent in favor). Among black respondents, 84.2 percent
favored funding while 15.8 percent opposed it.
BSM Chairperson William Bynum questioned the validity of
the poll because only 19 blacks were surveyed.
step to supply support to the commission.
"1 think the purpose of this is to establish a closer
working relationship between the Office of Student
Affairs and the orientation commission to ensure that
adequate support services are available to that
commission," he said.
Hartmann said the student orientation coordinator
should be named this week. The coordinator will help
select the remainder of the commission, perhaps by Jan.
31, she said.
Hartmann, the student coordinator and the Residence
Life staff will select area coordinators in February, who
in turn will select orientation counselors after spring
Student response for area coordinator and counselor
positions has been good, she said.
Students have until Thursday to apply for freshman
and junior transfer area coordinators and orientation
counselors. Applications arc available at the union desk,

Building and in residence halls.
Tentative plans for orientation include improved
counselor training and pacing of activities during the

the student body as to what tilt money is used for.
"Even though people see Chapel Hill as a center of liberalism,
basically the students on this campus have to deal with the issue
of sexism and racism," she said.
"CGA funds are used for publications, outreaches, funding for
Gay Awareness Week and funding for the library at the Human
Sexuality and Information Counseling Center, Elizabeth said.
"The CGA is open to everyone," she added. "And people
forget we pay student fees just like everyone else."
As for the efficient use of student fees, 44.2 percent of the
respondents felt their fees were used efficiently, while 34.5
percent did not. Undergraduates tended to feel their fees were
used more efficiently than graduate students.
The majority of students arc opposed to a racial quota system
As for student funding of the CGA, 74
percent of the students surveyed opposed
such funding, and 16.2 percent were in at UNC (81.1 percent to 14.6 percent). A cross tabulation of the
favor of it
A member of the CGA, using the alias
Elizabeth, said the results were
predictable and reflect ignorance among
results based on race revealed that blacks favor such a quota (70
percent to 25 percent) and whites oppose it (81.2 percent to 8.4

Old Dominion's Lieberman says she's the best;

Old Dominion's Nancy Lieberman is considered by many to be
the best in women's basketball today. And when she is asked if
that's true, the answer comes quickly.
"For what I do and for the needs I'm required to provide for
Old Dominion, I am (the best)," Lieberman said Tuesday in a
telephone interview from Norfolk, Va.
"I can score when I have to, I can rebound when I have to...I do
so many things that don't go in the scorebook. My teammates
make me better, and I make my teammates better."

and 6-5 centers. At 6-5 Inge Nissen is the top scorer for
ODU, averaging 18.6 points and 9.6 rebounds.
Freshman Anne Donovan is a more imposing player at 6-8.
She averages 1 6.8 points and 1 2.5 rebounds and will be a handful
for UNCs 6-1 freshman center Henrietta Walls.
"Henrietta's going to have to take the ball to Donovan, yet, at
the same time, shell have to work on some fakes," Alley said.
"Donovan likes to block shots, so Henrietta's going to have to
make some fakes and get her off her feet."
