For the first time since the 1975 recession, North
Carolina's unemployment rate has' surpassed the
national level, but UNC graduates have not been
affected by the current recession, a University official
said this week.
"The market has net been as good as students would
like," said J.M. Galloway, director of University
Placement Services. He said he would like to see more
placements, but in relation to the rest of the country,
UNC graduates have done well in securing jobs.
Galloway said seniors should start preparing their
resumes for companies which will begin recruiting at
UNC in September.
The state's 8.1 percent "unemployment rate for July
was 0.2 percent higher than the national figure.
Officials attribute the higher jobless rate to the
increasing scarcity of student jobs, plant layoffs in the
'furniture, textile and apparel industries and reduced
work schedules at large manufacturing plants across
A state official said the figures may be misleading,
however, because instead of the customary one-week
layoff of some workers, this year there was a two-week
Dave Garrison, assistant director of research at the
N.C. Employment Security Commission said the
unemployment figures in July were calculated during
the second week of layoffs, which dramatically
increased the monthly figure.
Garrison also said the current recession and high
interest rates have directly affected the unemployment
rate- in North Carolina. Because of the high interest
rates, the construction industry has been especially
hard hit. .
Officials have said a bright spot in the North
Carolina employment field was in the
nonmanufacturing and agricultural industries. Doth
experienced increases in their working forces, with
agriculture adding 43,000 men to its ranks.
Garrison said the high unemployment trend will not
continue and estimated the figure for August will drop
to the June level of 7.4 percent. He also said there may
be seasonal jumps in the rate.

"We would like to have started the service
on the first day of classes, but we needed
more time to screen the escorts. We had a

WASHINGTON (AP) Independent presidential candidate John B.
Andersen, strapped fcr cash and falling in public opinion polls, gave New

Bomb damage exceeds 03 million

The bomb tore through the bottom floors of Harvey's Resort Hotel

Chape! Hill, N.C.-Offidals in
the Athletic Department at the
University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill announced today
that all 1980 football tickets for
Carolina's home games have
completely sold out. This marks
the third year in a row that
Carolina has sold out all of its
home football games.
This year's total sellout is parr. ;
ticularly note-worthy in that it

season and that tickets for seven
home games were sold instead
of the usual six.

ball attendance has been
dramatic during the past several
years. Season ticket sales have
increased from 12,605 in 1975
to 25,754 in 1980. By the end
of the upcoming season U.N.C.
will have sold out its last twenty
three home games without the
benefit of Band Day or reduced
rate tickets of any type.

waiting list for the 1981 season.
