The Residence Hall Association is sponsoring the conservation drive, "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 said. ' 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. University housing. 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. iiii Sc. s i FOR YOUR COUNTRY; NOW F AVOID THE PosslSslHiy of drcft erousss strong fcc:in-3 DTHMaR cooper Draft definitely more than a joking matter By BETSI SIMMONS SUff Writer "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 added. committee o 9 'pucks tilhur e e By KAREN BARBER Staff Writer 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," Friday said. 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 Monday night. 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. Pre '67 shot for measles not effective By ANNETTE MILLER Staff Writer 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 Tuesday. "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. r ' Pi . . J -mat -V,..

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 said. 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. See VACCINE on page 2 By CAROLYN WORSLEY Staff Writer 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 said. 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 said. "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. By KAREN BARBER SUff Writer 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. The STUDENT 11 Ell DTH Poll 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 break. 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, the Office of Student Affairs in the basement of Steele Building and in residence halls. Tentative plans for orientation include improved counselor training and pacing of activities during the orientation period, Hartmann said. opposition 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 See POLL on page 4 I ...it I IW ...

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." The outspoken Lieberman will have a chance to prove the claims she and others have made at 7:30 bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbi tonight when Carolina's women's team hosts national champion and top-ranked Old Dominion in Carmichael Auditorium. Lieberman said the Monarchs will approach tonight's game as they would any Other. mmmmmmmmmmmmmm "We'll play our kind of ball game " she said. "We've worked hard; we've scouted and we basically know their personnel. We'll do what we always do and, if that's not good enough, well change." Lieberman, with her 15.6 point average is not the only player the Tar Heels and coach Jennifer Alley have to be concerned can score when I have to, lean rebound when I have to... I do so many things that don't go in the scorebook. about. Alley said a bigger problem will be stopping a pair of 6-foot-8 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." "We have to force her a bit out of her range," said 6-1 Bcrnic McGlade, the UNC captain. If she gets in the lane, she can reach right over you even if she's blocked out." bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb McGlade has no easy assignment herself in trying to stop Nissen. "She doesn't intimidate me," McGlade said. "She's tall but not that tall. I've played against her before so many times...that she doesn't intimidate me. Last year we offset each other; we both mmmmt wmm " had good games." And if those three weren't overpowering enough for even the best opposition, the Monarchs add Rhonda Rompola and Anla Cotman to the starting lineup. But with all their strength, Ihc Monarchs are not invincible. See NANCY on page 5 M s. t i Nancy Lkberman - J Tar Heels cruise by 10 Sco lory on pagt 5
