Approximately 1,090 UNC dorm
residents could be looking for a new
home after the annual general room
lottery, to be held Monday.
However, the number of residents
expected to be closed out probably
will be reduced to about 840 after a
preliminary drawing to be held today,
when a large number of students
generally drop out of the lottery, said

University Housing has reserved
3,158 spaces for returning residents
for the 1980-81 academic year, and
4,248 students have submitted
contracts to be placed in the lottery.
This would leave 1,090 students
without housing, but Graham said

performances on the Smothers Brothers
comedy show in the late 1960s and his
campaigns for the presidency in 1968 and
1972 gave his views on everything from
gun control to women and the draft.
Paulsen will not tell you that he has the
solutions, however. "Solutions are not
the answer. What this country needs from
its politicians are more promises."
His 1968 campaign was high lighted
with 89r-per-plate dinner fund raisers,
which helped him gain enough support to
receive 50,000 votes in the election.
Paulsen said that he was neither left
wing nor right-wing but preferred being
in the middle. "If you're too far to the left
or to the right, all you end up doing is
flying around in circles," he said.
"1 don't care what anyone says, the

with sex, said that he knows he really

them because they never fail to laugh.

Survivors face rent
By LINDA BROWN
A 6.9 percent increase in rents for
students living in University housing
has been approved for the 1980-81
academic year, Alan Ward, assistant
director of housing for business, said
Double-occupancy rents for
students living in group I dorms will
increase from $285 to $305 per
semester. Group II double-occupancy
rents were increased from $303 to
$324 per semester. Group III room
rents were changed from $33 1 to $354.
Group I consists of Alexander,
Aycock, Carr, Everett, Grimes, Lewis,
Old East, Old West and Ruffin. Group '
II consists of Avery, Connor, Craige,
Ehringhaus, Hinton James, Joyner,
Mangum, Manly, Morrison, Parker,

open and then the auditorium slowly fills up," he said.
When tickets for the Feb. 23 Duke game were
distributed Sunday, students coming at 2:30 p.m. could
still get tickets even though distribution started at 2 p.m.,
The decline can be attributed to several factors, ticket
officials said. "Although there seems to be as much
interest, students are just getting smart and realizing
they don't have to go down so early," said Jean Keller,
UNC ticket manager.
Assistant Athletic Director Moyer G. Smith agreed
with Keller. "More students have realized that you don't
have to stand in line for long knowing that you can get
tickets later," he said. The increased number of televised
games also contributes to the low turnout for
distribution, Keller said.
Strickland said he believed the decline can be
attributed either to random distribution methods (where

afternoon. Around campus this
past week, many people catching
a few rays got a headstart on the
summer. As the weather promises
to take a warm turn toward the
end of the week, we can expect to
see the old reliables hanging ten
under the Carolina blue sky.
The dorms are categorized in
groups according to items provided in
some of the buildings that may not be
provided in others.
"I don't think a 7 percent increase is
very high, in spite of the fact that it was
only a 4 percent increase last year,"
Ward said. "So the two-year increase
is about the same when you consider
what the rate of inflation has been."
During the 1975-1976 academic
year, double rooms in the group I
category cost $225, group 11 residents
paid $240 and rooms in group 111 cost
"The rate goes up every year it's
very rare that it doesn't," Ward said.
"There has been one time in the past
five years that it hasn't. During the '77
to '78 academic year, it did not go up.
"We're providing basically the same
housing program we've had in the
past, but we have increased cost.

The "Chapel Thrill '80" logo was
chosen for the Kenan Concert as the

Ward said he doesn't expect
residents to be happy about the
increase, but he said he thinks
everyone realizes the price of
everything is increasing.
"By comparison of the consumer
price index, the estimated average
price increase for 1980 over 1979 is
12'$ percent and our rents really have
gone up less than that in two years," he
"Just from observation, from what I
hear goes on. they certainly do not go
up as fast as apartment rates go up,"
he said. Steve Hunting, Student
Consumer Action Union chairperson,
said that on the average, double-room
apartment rents have increased by 12

"Because of the potluck situation, it doesn't really matter
what time you get here, so more students will come
later," he said.
Strickland added he did not see any decline in student
interest in the basketball team but said many were
misled by the turnouts for what he called the three
major games. Because of the large attendance for the
game held during spring semester registration,
Strickland said many students believe they will have no
chance of getting a ticket for any more important games
such as the Duke or N.C. State game.
Both Strickland and Keller said differences in the
UNC teams over the years play a minor role in
influencing student interest. "How well the team played
may have made a 500-600 student difference in the
turnout for tickets," Strickland said.
