Automated tetters to be put in

Four local banks should have their 24-hour
automated banking machines installed in a central
facility on campus by the latter part of January
1982, Said Charles Antle, UNC Associate Vice
Chancellor for Business,
The banks Central Carolina Bank, First Union
National BankNorth Carolina National Bank and
Wachovia Bank and Trust Co. signed lease ar
rangements with the University last Week. As soon
as all of the banks have received permission from
state and federal currency offices and have notified
the banks in writing, construction will begin.
The building housing the banks automated teller
machines will be adjacent to the Student Stores at
the bottom of the steps between the Student Stores
and the Carolina Union. It will have room for four
ATMs and a service corridor.
Planning began about 18 months ago. "The
banks came to us," Antle said. "They saw it as a
service primarily to the students so they wouldn't
have to go uptown to bank. Another reason, he
said, was that the bank machines uptown, which
all but First Union have, are used quite heavily.
NCNB's and Wachovia's ATMs are the most used
in the state. "I think they'd like to spread out their
business a little bit," Antle said.
Also, a lot of visitors come on campus for sports
events, concerts and plays, and the ATMs would
be easily accessible to them. The machines would .
also be good advertising for the banks.
There are a few conditions in the agreement be
tween the banks and the University. The banks will
pay the costs of construction and an annual rent to
the University for utility costs.
The University will be responsible for building
maintenance, such as heat, air conditioning or any
painting that needs to be done. It will also be re
sponsible for housekeeping both inside and outside
the building, Antle said. The banks are totally re
sponsible for the security and equipment of the
machines, and for transporting the money between
the ATM and the bank.
Establishing "an ATM is just like putting in a
branch bank," Antle said, which is why the banks
have to get special permission. CCB only needs
state approval because it is a state bank. David
Kimball, with CCB, said if they had to put in their
machine within a few weeks, they would have no
The other three banks are federal banks, so they
have to get permission from the U.S. Comptroller
of the Currency. Both First Union and Wachovia,
have already received permission, and NCNB should
. receive an answer within 30 days.

activities like football and tennis were as,
if not more, dangerous.

tennis elbow are similar because they are

nothing to do with medicine," he said.
McCutchan noted that punk eye should

University students wishing to obtain
part-time employment in the Chapel Hill
area to help defray escalating expenses
may have to explore alternative resources
Most part-time positions in Chapel Hill
already are filled, according to a recent sur

hirings expected. Stores in the area often .
employ students who previously have had
jobs in their hometowns, and according
to Edward Lowdermilk, manager of Revco
on Franklin Street, 90 percent of his em
ployees are college students. However, all
the part-time positions at the store have,
A random survey of merchants on
Franklin Street showed that the availability
of part-time openings was extremely lim
ited. Many positions- were filled during
the early summer months, and those
openings still available are expected to be
taken within the first two weeks of classes.
Eleanor Morris, director of student aid
at UNC, said the work study program at
the University had not been significantly
damaged due to the federal government's
spending cuts.. "Funding from Congress
' on the work-study program will remain at

'Morris said. However she pointed to the
significant fact that the demand for jobs.
hin the program had increased sharply.-
1 Another reason for the shortage oT jobs
is this year's lack of funds from North

from last year, resulting in a deluge of
students seeking part-time employment,
