Plans for student apartments built by
the University should be dropped, Vice
ChanceUoi for Business and Finance
JOiin Tcrnp sciid Friday ,
At a meeting of the UNC Board cf
Trustees Temple said the construction
costs and high interest rates would make
rent too high for students to afford. The
board delayed any action on the plans to
build apartments on the Couch property
near Kroger Plaza.
Student Body President Bob Saunders,
who requested the delay, said it would
allow time for student groups to respond
to a report submitted by Temple and
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
Donald A. Boulton. The report which
had been submitted' to the chancellor
said the housing shortage that was per
ceived three years ago was not critical
now. The report also recommended that
serious consideration be given to selling
the Couch property.
"This report has been sprung upon us
at a late date," Saunders said. "Student
groups and town groups have not had
time to react to it."
Boulton agreed with Temple that the
University could not provide housing at
a price students could afford.
"We cannot even compete with the
private sector," Boulton said. "It is
costing luxury prices to pul up basic

Daily Tar Heel editor candidate Thomas
Jessiman said Sunday that he would not appeal the
Elections Board ruling to certify the results of the
editor race mmmtnmv'
The board Thursday had I
certified Jim Hummel as the
winner .of the election in a 7-3 !
vote. By certifying the results the f 1
board denied Jessiman's complaint 1
of polling irregularities. j
Jessiman had said Thursday he
would appeal the decision to the!
student Supreme Court. He said
Sunday, however, that even if he
won the court case it would be dif
ficult to convince students he
wasn't playing with legal technicalities to win a
second election. . . --: ,
"An actr"l. court case would take 7 to-10 days," ,
Jessiman said. "I don't want to ask people to go
out and vote for me again when I've already subjec
ted them to so much.
"The paper needs a new editor now. A long trial
and possible re-election could have been very harm
ful," he said. ,
Hummel, who will take office Feb. 22, said he re
spected Jessiman's decision and that he was relieved
because it would keep the staff from having to go
through a Supreme Court case. ,
"1 have a great respect for (Jessiman's) abilities,"
Hummel said. "We were evenly matched and that
was evident in the election returns."
Hummel will be interviewing applicants for posi
tions today from 12-5 p.m. Anyone interested
should come to the DTH office to apply.
Jessiman's complaint to the Elections Board cen
tered on the early closing of the polls in Craige resi
dence hall. Jessiman needed 19 votes to put the race
into a runoff election and his complaint stated that
the early closing of the polls had a significant effect
on the election results. He also filed a complaint
concerning campaign materials near the polling
The board had ' denied the requests on the
grounds that it had no authority to call for a new
election for the reasons in Jessiman's complaint.
The Elections Board was operating under the pre
sumption that this would automatically go to the
student Supreme. Court," Jessiman said. '."They
shirked their responsibility; they did not realize just
how serious a Supreme Court case is."
Jessiman said he would not work with the paper
because he had already worked as an associate
editor and there was no new position he would
"It's time to get this behind me," Jessiman said.
"I need to get my studies together again and do
some creative writing; I'll just get back to living
After what has been the clos
est election in recent years,
voters will return to the polls
Tuesday and decide who will be
the next student body president,
Carolina Athletic Association
president, the Graduate and
Professional Student Federation
president, senior class treasurer
and members of the Campus Gov
Candidates for student body
president, Joe - Buckner and
Scott Norberg, have used the ex
tra week to campaign. At ticket
distribution in Carmichael Audi
torium Saturday, Norberg signs
. were posted and Buckner sup
porters passed out handbills. The
handbUls claimed endorsement
by defeated presidential can
didates Tim Smith and Mark
Bozymski, leaders from the Residence Hall Associa
tion, the Inter-Fraternity Council, the Association
for Women Students and the Student Consumer
Action Union. Wanda Montgomery of the Black .
Student Movement and Executive Assistant Darryl
Smith also were listed. ,
However, Montgomery later said her name was
used without permission. "I'm not an official
spokesperson for the BSM, and the use of such title
is a violation of the endorsement," she said. '
Sharon Parker, chairperson for SCAU, also said
she had never given permission for her name to be
used for such a flyer and said she did not , want
SCAU's name associated with any candidate.
Both Norberg and Buckner were endorsed by
campus groups. Nprberg was endorsed by the Black
Student Movement, The Daily Tar Heel, the Pan
hellenic Council, the Sports Club Council and the
DiPhi Societies. Buckner was chosen by the Inter
Fraternity Council, the RHA Board of Governors
"and thc. AWS-' :-'; "
, Steve Theriot and Jake Kelly are in the runoff for
CAA president. Theriot has proposed expanding
the staff with four committee chairpersons.
"This makeup would enable the CAA to work
with the athletic department," Theriot said. "The
CAA has got to be there on routine decisions (by
the athletic department) if it wants to have impact
on the big decisions."
Kelly could not be reached for
.-" comment Sunday. She also has
said she would set up a commit
. tee system that would deal with
f ; advising clubs on raising money,
, , promote athletic events, work on
V ! ticket distribution, ir.tramurals,
club sports and homecoming. She '
' has said she would like to put a
; monthly insert in the DTH that
. . 'w . would publish results of the var
Norberg sity, junior varsity, intramural
and club sports games.
Theriot has been endorsed by
the DTH. Kelly has been endors
ed by the AWS.
In the GPSF presidential race, '
the two candidates are Andy
Harkov and Robert Mann.
, "What I am stressing is my ex
perience in student government
as opposed to my opponent's
lack ; of experience," Harkov
l .v,,v.. . u said. He Was vice president of
Theriot student " government at New
. York state university during 1978-1979.
Mann said he had experience with campus groups
at Georgia Tech, including being an administrator
and manager for the student radio station, and re
search and development manager for a textile com
pany in South Carolina. This experience gives me
the organizational ability which would be more im
portant for GPSF than political ability, he said.
; In the senior class elections', Brenny Thompson
and Debbie Mixon said Sunday they would file an
appeal with the student Supreme Court contesting
the presidential race.
There will be a runoff between Pam Hawkins and
Kelly Womack for senior class treasurer. Alisa
Breedlove was elected senior class secretary.

Every year hundreds of students arc booted out of
their University rooms by the housing lottery, and
many others voluntarily seek eff-campus housing. Though
finding an apartment in Chapel Hill's limited housing
market can be trying, it is not an impossible task, and
there is help available for the apartment-hunter.
A pamphlet by the UNC Student Consumer Action
, Union suggests some things to consider in choosing a
place to live:
o Cost of rent and what services and utilities are
o Location, distance from campus, parking restric
tions and availability of bus service;
o Size of the apartment, including closet space and

The price cf obtaining a college education seems to
be rising, continuously, with increases in the costs of
bocks and supplies, tuition, fees and room and board.
These problems become compounded when a student
chooses, cr must resort to, eff-campus housing.
UNC students are once egain becoming aware of this
fact, as Thursday's University housing lottery draws
near. Those students whose names are not drawn will
be forced to join the rush for off-campus housing.
Most students who live off campus rent epartments
that cost $400 to $503 mere per acadrrr.ie year than cn
campus housing, according to UNC Student Aid Office
The average increase in. apartment rent for 1975 to
iSCQ was $155.33 to 1237.34, cr 52.7 percent, said Brad
Lamb cf the UNC Student Consumer Action Union.
Rises in the costs cf utilities, transportation, and
food and supplies are net re f.ected in either the SCAU
cr the Student Aid Office fcurti.
Rents at Booker Creek Apartments have increased
fieri 5 175-5215 a month in 1975 to $335 a month in
1931 for a 91 percent increase, according to the
department of University housing. Qn the ether end of
the scale, Northampton Plara Apartments have
tncrea.ed from $lfO a mcr.ih in 1573 to $235 a month
in IVJI for a 31 percent ircre-se.

Director Mike Jennings said.

The conversion of several apartment complexes in
the Chapel Hill area to condominiums has put an
added burden on students, Frymier said.
Another problem that plagues students seeking off
campus housing is that apartment managers are usually
unable to give any definite information on the number
of apartments cr how much they will cost until May or
later, when most Heases are dropped.
"Students who get on the waiting lists and who are
persistent will be the ones who get the better deals,"
There are extra expenses involved in renting an
apartment that many students tend to overlook. With
the rocketing cost of gasoline, commuting from
apartment to campus is becoming very expensive. Bus
passes offer a cheap transportation alternative,'
Frymier said. .

food, furniture, and various household Items" u-atiy

Since the housing market in the area is so limited,
apartment-hunters should be aware of application pro
cedures. Policies vary from complex to complex, with
the major difference being the requirement of security
For example, Carolina and Old Well apartments
form a waiting list from which they fill apartments as
they become available. So students often must begin
renting in May. No deposit is required however. The
turnover is usually large; last year about 125 apartments
came open between the two complexes, Carolina Man
ager Diana James said.
Camclot and Northampton Plaza apartments have a
similar waiting list system, with no deposit required
until an apartment is guaranteed. About 12 of 114
apartments at Camclot should become available, Man
. ager Al Meyers estimated; but Northampton Manager
Charlotte Kilpatrick said only three apartments, the
fewest ever, became available last year at that complex.
1 Kingswood, Royal Park and Estes Park apartments
require a $150 deposit and a $10 application fee, but
upon application, prospective tenants are guaranteed
an apartment, Kingswood Manager Brent Bobbin said.
Foxcroft Apartments requires a $300 deposit which
wiU guarantee an apartment for August occupancy to
the first 50 applicants. Manager Debbie Ergle said.
Bolingwood Apartments requires a deposit of $150
per roommate but do not guarantee an apartment.
However, Manager Pat Mcnish said only seven of these
unassigned deposits had been received as of Friday,
making chances of securing an apartment there still
BoIInvvood applicants must take an apartment when
ever it becomes available, and undergraduates must
have their parents submit a latter tsuming rcsporIIUy
fcr rent and damages.
At Tar If eel Manor, a deposit will ho'efan apartment
for 30 days, so students who. put down a deposit in July
dont have to begirt renting until August. Manager
fUhecca Townsend said that "quite a few apartments'
: u-u-tly become available each year.
Though it may be difficult to secure an apartment,
Gina Wiseman, co-editor of the Southern Part of
Ihzven? (SCAU's annual g: id; to epartments). said
her best advice to apartmer.t-h;;r,!ers was: "Don't rush
