i f -p. .") , . Thursday, Aujust 6, 1S31 Chapel Hill, North Carolina bUti -ctODi "0 V3S 4 S a A It . 1 UNC alloc aions By EFF HIOAY . 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. .

"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. , i t i i W1 4 i . N- a - - - e Orientation program hindered by various delays By RACHEL PERRY Although some freshmen and transfer stu dents may not hear from their Orientation Counselors until they move into the residence halls. Orientation Commission officials said Tuesday that the administrative delays would not affect the quality of this year's Orienta tion program. "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 at once. "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 and papers." More than 700 University students are in volved as volunteers in this year's Of ientation program. Leaver said. "As Area Coordinators, Orientation Counselors, Commission mem bers and Operations Staff members, these stu dents serve a vital function " The following is the 1931 Orientation schedule: .
