Fines for parking on the University campus
without a valid parking permit or visitor's permit will
rise from $10 to $20, effective July 1 .
, Unauthorized cars parked in handicapped spaces or
Fire Lanes will begin receiving $25 tickets instead of
Those increases are part of a 38-page ordinance
which is prepared annually by the University's Board
of Trustees to regulate the University's traffic.
Richard Sharpe, Parking Control Coordinator for the
University, said "it was a shock to me, in fact," since
he had proposed a relatively moderate increase
compared to the one adopted by the Board.
A spokesman for the Disabled Student
Organization said it was originally hoped . that
increased enforcement of handicapped parking
regulations would cut down the amount of
violations. A random survey last fall found that ,
illegal parking in the handicapped spaces was
occurring quite regularly. Eighty-seven violations
were discovered during the 12-day survey.
These results prompted Laura Drumheller,
Coordinator of Handicapped Student Services, to
submit a letter to the Department of Traffic and
Parking, calling for increased enforcement in these
Since February 11, when the letter was first posted,
there were "some improvements in the situation
regarding handicapped spaces," J)rumheller said.
"But now we expect even further progress to be
Towing costs also are going up $5. Thus a standard
tow between the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. will cost
$22.50 instead of the current $17.50.
Sharpe said the pressure for this increase came from
the independent service station managers who have
contracts with the University for towing: "They got
together and said 'look, we need to raise our costs up
that much.' "
Towing a car requires the supervision of a
University Police officer; cars are taken to a fenced-in
compound at the Horace Williams Airport parking
Sharpe said that despite the loss of 550 parking
spaces to the construction of the new central library,
there will not be too serious a parking problem for
'To tell the truth, I have substantially less people
working for me this summer, Sharpe said. "During
the regular school year there is a supervisor and nine
or ten people on a shift. For the summer there is a
supervisor and anywhere from three to five monitors
on a shift."
"These fines are going to change," Sharpe said
"Like if you park your car in that lot by Carroll,
without a permit, you stand a pretty good chance of
getung a $20 fine." The traffic office also gets money
from the sale of permits to park on campus.

Hypnotist offers cure to smokers
By Jac Versteeg
One by one they file into the room and light their cigarettes
their last. Most of them glance around nervously as if expecting a
blindfold and a firing squad. But they aren't about to face a firing
squad they are about to face Alan Konell, a hypnotherapist.
Konell has been using hypnosis on groups and individuals for
about three years to treat overeating, nail biting, poor study habits,
poor spelling, sexual dysfunction almost anything. Now, he is
about to use hypnosis to turn a group of 13 smokers into non
smokers. The subjects eye Konell suspiciously as he enters die room. He
doesn't look like the stereotype no turban, no robe emblazoned
with astrological signs, no burning eyes. He just looks like a young
businessman in a brown suit. But wait. He does have a slightly
graying beard. Maybe that's the secret! '
At last the group hypnosis session is about to begin. The subjects
stub out their cigarettes after hastily sucking in one last puff. In an
hour and a half they will hopefully be non-smokers. '
Konell begins by answering some basic questions about
hypnosis. "People have got the wrong idea about hypnousm from
all those old movies like the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari," Konell tells
his clients. "When I put you into a hypnotic trance you will not be
a zombie or a slave. A hypnotic trance is an altered state of mental
awareness. It's a state of deep relaxation in which the
hypnotherapist speaks directly to the unconscious part of the
mind. In a state of trance, more resources for achieving any desired
change become available."
One woman asks, "How will I know I'm hypnotized?"
"During hypnosis the conscious mind usually slays alert,"
Konell tells her. "It keeps chattering away and you might not even
think you're hypnotized. But it doesn't make any difference what
the conscious mind does or thinks. It's the unconscious mind I
communicate with. As I communicate direcdy with your
unconscious mind, you will be able to resolve problems you have
been unable to resolve previously."
Somebody wants to know if hypnosis is permanent. "Yes,"
Konell says, "because hypnosis isn't a dose of something that can
wear off, it's something that helps you actually change what you
do. With proper supervision, the changes can become permanent."
To help the change become permanent, Konell gives his clients
tape-recorded hypnotic messages to listen to twice a day until they
are certain the change is permanent
Finally somebody asks the inevitable question. "Can you make
me do anything under hypnosis I don't want to do?"
