The UNC Board of Governors approved 'locations to the
Chapel Hill campus Friday including $71 .1 million for aca
demic affairs and $9.1 million for capital improvements for
the next two years. ;
The allocations come from appropriations made to the
University system by the 1931 Ceneral Assembly totaling
$543.3 million for operating expenses and $48.3 million for
capital improvements. ,
These figures reflect declining financial support from the
Reagan administration which resulted in the passage of fewer
capital improvements. The largest cuts have been in the areas
of student aid and government guaranteed student loans.
Also affected is research in the area of arts and humanities
and physical sciences, said Victor Bowles, University Budget
Officer. Bowles said research in medical and health areas
would not be seriously hurt.
The Assembly adjourned July 10, but will reconvene in
October for further review of budget matters. A BOG report
stipulated that the principal University items to be considered
at that time will be: salary increases for all groups of em
ployees; additional appropriations for expansions and im
provements; and the need to replace losses of federal funds.
Following is a summary of BOG allocations to UNC-Chapel
Hill. . '

From Staff and Wire Reports
Thirty-three of the 38 air traffic controllers at Raleigh
Durham Airport did not report for work on Monday and
local union president Kevin Kelly said they will stay out as
long as necessary.
"The only way a labor organization has power is to go on
strike," he said. "Without the power to strike it's collective
bess'ng. not bargaining." :
This is the first time there has even been a nationwide
walk-out of federal employees, and striking against the fed
era! government is a felony carrying a maximum fine of
$1,000 and a year and a day in jail.
President Ronald Reagan's original ultimatum stated that
controllers due to report for work on the morning shift Wed
nesday had to be in by 11 a.m. to a" void dismissal. Those due
in on afternoon and evening shifts also faced firing if they .
did not report on time.
Transportation Secretary Drew Lewis told reporters a half
hour before the dismissal deadline that some confusion had
developed over whether controllers were required to report
to their 7 a.m. day shift today to avoid being fired.
He said day-shift controllers would be given until 7 a.m.
this morning to report, That means the first controllers tOs
whom the president's work-or-be-fired order applied to after
noon shift workers due to report at 3 p.m.
"The only way we can lose is to fold under intimidation,"
Kelly said, "because you really can't fire 13,000 skilled pro
fessional people and replace them."
"You can't run the system without us," he said.
Supervisors have been taking over the controllers' jobs as
the members of the Professional Air Traffic Controllers
Organization stay out on strike.
Transportation Secretary Lewis said he was confident the
national air traffic control system could run "relatively well"
for a year or two even if several thousand controllers were
fired and not immediately replaced. But, he added, there is
"no question we are in trouble and the public is going to be
inconvenienced. This is no cakewalk."
Host-Hostess, an airport information service, reported
Monday that some flights coming in from larger areas had
been cancelled. They also reported that flights coming into
RDU were often hours late and that some flights out of the
airport had been cancelled.
Keith Braswell of Eastern Airlines estimated that his com
pany was running about 75 percent of its flights system-wide.
Kelly questioned the ability of the remaining controllers
to maintain that level.
"Safety depends on a reduced work week," he said. The
union claims that controllers can not keep up the concentra
tion necessary for a full 40-hour week.

By RACHEL PERRY

Tuesday that the administrative delays would
not affect the quality of this year's Orienta
"It (the Orientation delays) won't hurt the
freshmen and transfers, but it (the Orienta
tion) might not benefit them as much as it
would otherwise," said Ruthie Leaver, Orien
tation Commission Chairperson.
The program's problem was one of not get
ting the Orientation "information out to the
new students in time. Leaver said. "Wa just
ran into delays all the way around. Adminis
trative, printing everything just p,fed up
"The basic problem is that some freshmen
and transfers won't get the introductory let
ter from their OC before they get to campus.
But as soon as they move in, everything will
be straightened out"
Orientation Week is a University-sponiored
program to help integrate new students with
their surroundings, she said. "We want to have
them adjusted to their new situation before
they have to worry about things like classes
More than 700 University students are in
volved as volunteers in this year's Of ientation
