&8 : jfe '9 jfer away j students learn patience
By CHIP WILSON
DTH Staff Writer
Standing amid dripping umbrellas, a corral of
tables and rows of perplexed students, Julie Krain
iak said she was learning an important lesson.
"Patience," said the freshman from Fayetteville.
"I've learned a lot of it in the past few days."
The ends of patience certainly were tested last
week, as incoming and returning students stood in
line for parking permits, medical examinations and
most importantly, class registration cards.
Lines at Woollen Gym, where freshmen and
transfers were arranging their class schedules, were
shorter than most of 'the others on campus last
week. While many classes were closed, most fresh
men interviewed last Wednesday . reported few
problems in obtaining the classes they wanted.
"I just snapped them up," said David Savage, a
freshman political science major. "The registration
was really organized this year. It wasn't hard at all."
The old hands at long lines, returning UNC stu
dents, did not share the forebearance of their first
year counterparts. '
Tammy Nolen said she stood in line for a bus
permit for 40 minutes, which could have been
shorter if she had been directed to the right line.
"I think they could be doing this a little better,"
kshe said. "But it is improved over last year."
Graduate students, long accustomed to the perils
of college life, appeared to be the least apprehensive
"I don't really feel bad about these lines because
I've seen a lot worse," said a graduate student in
computer science who withstood a downpour of
rain as he waited to enter Memorial Hall.
Keeping the mind active while waiting for 40 or
50 minutes is easy, according to freshmen and up-
One graduate student said she spends her time

"There aren't as many characters today as there used
to be. Back then everybody was a looney bird. If you
weren't out of style then you were out of style," EUiot
Warnock, a Chapel Hill native who was a student at
UNC during the early 1970s said.
- Warnock found the famed student protests of the day
a bit foolish. "For an anti-war rally, 500 people would
show up and throw two rocks into the ROTC building.
Big deal. Certain political students at that time made
about as big a ripple as George McGovern did in 1972."
One thing that Warnock really sees as different today
is the dwindling number of parties. "Almost any night
10 years ago there was a party on every floor of Mor
rison and many other places. There was a lot of goofing
around. It was difficult to study then because there was
too much stress. And it was a very confusing time; it was
difficult to get a grip on things because everybody was
screaming. People still don't talk, but now it's because
they're too busy studying," Warnock said. -
Another 1970s student at UNC, who wished to remain
anonymous, sees the same sort of change in academics.
"It seems to me that people have gotten more selfish.
You can attest to this by the number of business majors
today. People are more geared to their future and getting
a fat paying job. Which may or may not be a good
thing," the former student said.
"I think it's a good thing anytime people of an impres
sionable age i.e., college care about what condition
the world is in," she said referring to the student
radicalism of her college days. "I think there's more
bullshit floating around today, though the amount of
bullshit has always been pretty high in college," she said.
Commenting on the change in fads she said, "People,
don't abuse drugs like they used to. You can't buy acid
on the street corner anymore."
But many things have remained the same in Chapel
Hill over the past decade. "The Greeks haven't changed
one iota. Even 10 years ago they all had uniforms. And
now they listen to the same exact music and have the
same sort of theme mixers," the former student said.
A glance at old Tar Heels shows that the food service,
the bus system and the lack of quality entertainment in
Chapel Hill were major complaints then too. Football
and basketball had just as big a following then as today.
And one article listed the biggest slides on campus in
1970 as English 42, RTMP 45, Music 41, Anthropology
41 and Political Science 41. Some things always remain
the same throughout the years at UNC.

ID defines Jp

It would have made a good television
commercial, if the credit card company
had not thought of it first. "The UNC
Identification Card. Don't leave home
One thing that readily becomes appar
ent to incoming students is that his or her '
official UNC ID card, that 3-18 by
2-316 inch laminated piece of plastic
with the picture you would rather not
have others see, is something not to be
With it, you are welcome to a wide va
riety of campus services from cashing
checks at the Student Stores to bowling in
the basement of the Carolina Union. .
Without it, as one Morrison resident
said, "You're simply not a person."
ID cards are vital if a student wishes to
cash a check or purchase an item with a
check from the Student Stores.
"Unless a student has a valid ID card,
we don't really believe he's standing there,"
said Thomas A. Shetley, director of cam
pus merchandising. "The first week or so
we'll take proof of registration (a fall
1981 class schedule) or temporary card,
but when the permanent cards come in,
that's all we'll take."
Without an ID card, a student's class
work could also be hampered.
"If you're a UNC student, you really
need to have a card to check out any ma
terial from the library," said a Wilson
Library spokesman "We'll look it - up
and see if a student is registered in case
he's lost a card, but we only do that in ex
Not only does a lost card mean no li
brary books ,or no cash from the Student
Stores, it also means you will have to pay .
to get a new one.
To replace a broken, spindled or muti
lated card, students must bring what is
left of the original (to prove he or she is a
.student) to the basement photo lab of
. Swain Hall. A new photograph will be
made and if the card is more than two
years old $5 will be charged for the re-
placement, said Lee Howe, manager of
: the Swain Hall photo lab.
Today through Friday, new and re-
placement IDs will be made from 9 a.m.
to 12:45 p.m. and from 2:15 to 4:30 p.m.
After Friday, photographs will be taken
on Thursdays at the same times.
If a card is lost or stolen, students must
report to 105 Hanes Hall and get an au
thorization card so the lab technicians will
know the person is a student, Howe said.
Students need to present ID cards for
such activities as Free Flicks, sports tic-
. kets, campus elections and special Union
events, but perhaps one of the card's
most important uses comes when treat
ment at the Student Health Service is
"We do ask them to present an ID to
get treatment at the infirmary," a SHS
spokesman said. "It makes paperwork
easier and treatment comes faster. Treat
ment will not be denied if the student
doesn't have a card with him, but we do
reserve the right to check and make sure
student health fees have been paid."
These are activities students can take
part in without an ID, of course. Getting
a beer on Franklin Street without it Is easy
as long as you have a driver's license
when the proprietor asks for it. But as
students rapidly learn without a UNC
ID card, you're just another ordinary
