Activities Center fund goal to be m
By LYNNE THOMSON
Fund raising for the Student Activities Center willreach its
$30 million goal, the assistant director of the building fund
said last week.
Bulcher Ehringhaus said that $12.7 million had been pledg
ed to the fund so far.
Ehringhaus said that ground would probably be broken
for the facility in early 1982, and the fund will require
pledges of at least $30 million to begin construction, he said.
The fund has received two $1 million contributions. The
first was from Walter Davis of Texas, who just finished his
term on the UNC Board of Trustees and has begun his term
on the Board of Covernors, the governing body for the
16-campus UNC system.
An anonymous donor pledged the second $1 million for
Ehringhaus said the average contribution was about
$17,000. The contribution is made in the form of a pledge to
be paid at intervals of at least 36 months. This would allow
the University to get the maximum tax exemptions.
State newspapers have reported that a $1 million con
tribution would allow a contributer to name the center. But
the minimum price is $8 million, Ehringhaus said.
"There are several major solicitations underway," he said.
The name of the center would be announced at the end of.
the football season, Ehringhaus said.
He also said UNC head basketball coach Dean Smith said
that if someone gave-$8 million they could tel! him when to;;,
go to four corners. . -T , ' .
The building fund uses the high demand for Basketball 1
seating as a motivating factor for donations. If a member of
the educational foundation classified as a regular Ram,
meaning one who gives $150 a year, donates $5,000 to the
building fund, he receives the privilege of buying two tickets.

Gym opens in fa!J
after some delay
By ANN PETERS
After more four years of construction, the
new physical education and intramural facil
ity is near completion. The building will be
open and ready for use in the early fall, the
"Right now, we're in the process of mov
ing in," Director Ed Shields said last week.
"The opening of the facility is well behind
schedule and (construction) proceeded very
slowly for a long time," he said.
The construction of the new building,
which will be named either the Robert Fet
zer Gymnasium or the Intramural Facility,
started in May, 1977 and should eventually
cost $5,937,000. Although construction took
longer than expected, the costs were within
the original estimate, said Jake Bryant, direc
tor of engineering and construction. His
department has been in direct contact with
the designers, engineers and contractors.
Bryant said the facility's construction was
about one year behind schedule. One cause
of the delay was the change in contractors
from James D. Little to Ceorge W. Kane last
When the building opens in the fall, it will
O two multipurpose rooms for fencing
and wrestling practice
O an adaptive physical education motor
learning facility for table tennis and karate
O locker rooms
O an exercise and phyiiology room to
measure and evaluate physical activity
The facility also will have five classrooms
with a 200-person capacity, two conference
rooms and office space.
