A begins campus service;
oniy rine stoom in operation
By Martha Johnsen
The Pine Room opened its doors under new
management on Monday morning as ARA Services
formally replaced Servomation Corp. as the campus food
sen ice agency.
The Pine Room is the only campus food establishment
which will be open this summer.. It has a no-meal-plan
policy for the summer, slightly lower prices, a newly
trained staff and a revamped atmosphere.
The changeover has been hetic, said Dan Ramage, ARA
director of dining services. The ARA staff moved in last
Thursday and cleaned steadily through the weekend to
meet inspection standards and to get ready to serve meals
beginning Monday morning.
"Our first concern is to get this place clean," said
Ramage. "There is some ancient dirt in here. Cleaning that
up comes first."
Because of the work involved in the changeover, ARA
will not offer a summer meal plan. "We want to do things
well in this facility," said Ramage. "We didn't feel we
could get together a decent meal plan in time." All food
must be paid for with cash this summer, but several new'
meal plans will be offered in the fall.
Some people who ate, in the Pine Room Monday
observed that the prices seemed lower. .
Carver Camp, student relations coordinator for ARA,
said "We feel like we're in competition with every
restaurant in town so we're trying to keep prices a little bit
ARA also implemented a training program for the food
service staff. Former Servomation employees were given
the option to stay on with ARA and receive its special
training programs, and many Servomation employees
have opted to stay.

Town Council voted to refer to the town

The University is planning to construct
a Student Athletic Center on the southern
portion of the campus in the
underdeveloped area between Manning
Drive and Mason Farm Road. But the
University must obtain a special use permit
from the town before it can begin
construction of the facility.
The request for the special use permit
will be further discussed at the Planning
Board meeting of June 17.
The facility, which is designated to be
built on University property formerly
owned by Mrs. H.G. Baity, has met with
opposition from local residents in that area
who are concerned about the noise level
that such a structure might bring.
In response to this opposition, Gordon
Rutherford, Director of University
Planning said, "We feel confident that the
facility as it is can meet the zoning
ordinance (which takes noise into
account). We are confident also that the
noise problem can be solved or we
wouldn't have presented (plans for the
Residents are concerned also with traffic
problems that may arise from the location
of such a facility.

The delegates are residence hall leaders
representing about 100 of the
approximately 350 colleges and
universities in the United States and

largest ever held, Ford said.
"The purpose of the conference is to
provide a means of communication among
residence hall associations, to share ideas
and solutions to problems and hopefully to
improve living conditions on campuses,"

conference is "Down the Road a Piece" and
is designed to help residence hall leaders
cope with the problems they will face in the

submitted at the 1979 conference at Kansas
State University. Important factors in
UNC's selection were the proposed
program, campus facilities and cost. Ford
Delegates pay $49.50 to attend the
