Chapel Thrill concert and budget were debated in Monday night's CGC meeting

The Campus Governing Council approved a
$125,000-budget for the 1982 Chapel Thrill con
cert Monday, , which allows the Chapel Thrill
Committee six months to plan for the. event.
The council's vote was 17 to 5.
Student Body President Scott Norberg said
he was pleased with the council's overwhelming
support of the bill and credited its passing to a
well-planned program geared to insure a suc
"We have minimized the risk," Norberg said,
pointing out a number of parts of the bill that
are worded to guard against financial loss.
Despite these provisions, some council mem
bers expressed strict opposition to the bill be
cause they were afraid of losing a tremendous
amount of money.
"It seems like a really frivolous way to spend
money at a time when the economy is like this,"
said Lori Dostal, District 5. She pointed out that
the whole country was suffering financially.
"It shows irresponsibility," Dostal said. She
said the money would be better spent in campus
organizations and thereby eliminate the need for
an increase in Student Actitivies Fee.
Other CGC members expressed concern over
whether the concert's success was guaranteed.
"There are so many ifs, ands, or buts," said
Phil Painter, District 19. "We have no guaran
tees and if things go wrong we might not be able
to have a concert for the next four or five
Anderson Harkov, District 1, agreed that
there was a chance of a large financial loss.
"There are a lot of guarantees that are missing
here," he said. Harkov used the example of the
Jimmy Buffett concert three years ago when the
weather was good and three good bands per
formed but the Council still struggled to break
More than $8,000 was lost on the Buffett con
cert. Chapel Thrill Committee Chairperson Wes
In his presentation of the bill Norberg listed
some of the advantages as well as precautions
the bill offers to secure the concert's success.
He said the adoption of the bill at such an
early date in the school year would give the
committee, which selects the bands, a better
chance to get a big-name band to include
Chapel Hill in their touring list. .
April 24 has been picked as the date of the
concert to help give bands a more detailed idea
of what the campus wants. The bill also sets a
date after which time, if no band has been con
tracted, the concert wpuld be canceled.
Another provision designed to guarantee
financial security "is that tickets will be sold at a
lower price but will increase by as much as $5 to
$7 on the day of the concert. This provision is
included to help foster advance sales and insure
against financial loss.
There were more than $30,000 in tickets sold
the day of the Beach Boys concert two years
Despite the mixed feelings over the bill, Stu
dent Body Treasurer Rochelle Tucker captured
the committee's concern of dealing with such a
large Financial investment: "If we lose every
dime, then shame on us."
Aging program tonight at 7
Experts to speak on elderly plight
By TERESA CURRY
DTH Staff Writer
Last of i two-part series.
"Aging is an aspect not talked about
much in our society. It is kept hush hush,"
said Ellie Jeffers, program coordinator
for "What Shall We Do About Mother?:
How to Deal with Aging and the Aged,"
to be shown tonight at 7.
"The main "objective of the program is
to try to cover not only changes that oc
cur physically with the elderly, but how
relationships with the elderly work,"
The program will be held in the Upper
Lounge of the Carolina Union and will
last about two hours, she said.
"We are gearing it pretty much for the
students, but of course it is open to the
public." ...... .. :. ,V.-V.
The program will . open with the
55-minute CBS documentary "What
Shall We Do About Mother?" and will be
followed by an informal panel discussion
in which four experts in the field of
gerontology will speak. This will be fol
lowed by a question and answer session
for the audience, Jeffers said. .
The documentary has already been
aired on CBS and was donated to the
Union by the video tape network, said
Kathryn Ann Williams, chairperson for
the human relations committee of the
Carolina Union. -
"It talks about the guilt families ex
perience when they realize a nursing home
is their only alternative," Williams said.
"It also talks about the financial and
emotional aspects of the decision they
had to make.
"In addition, it talks about the respon
sibilities of society to prepare to take care
of the elderly; It mentions the elderlies'
need for consistency and stable relation
ships. These are two things that are
usually taken away with age."
The four panelists will be allowed to
speak for about 10 minutes each about
. their reactions to the film and about their
philosophies and ideas, Jeffers said.
"I was thinking about addressing you
(the students) with the issues of your
.patents having to confront" the aging
their parents," said 'Dr. Jim Bryan, a
doctor and medical professor at UNC
Looking after parents can often result
- in stressful situations being reflected in
the lives of the children taking care of
them, Bryan said. The stress can become
so bad in extreme cases that it results in
parent abuse and abandonment, or pos
sibly the divorce of your parents.
"About 15 percent of the people will
be over 65 when your generation is in the
working field," Bryan said. "You are just'
one generation away from having to take
care of the elderly."
Linda Anderson, a graduate student in
health education, plans to discuss myths
concerning the elderly. '
"The major one is the abandonment of
the elderly in America' Anderson said.
"This myth is one of the focuses of the
film. I am going to expand on it."
Ann Hamrick, a clinical social worker
at the Adult Development, Counseling
and Consultation Center in Chapel Hill,
plans on commenting on particular fea
tures of the video tape. ;
Hamrick said CBS had contacted her
to try to identify cases that would be rele
vant to the film, but she said she couldn't
find anyone willing to do it. '
BThe most important thing I can tell
students is that they understand people
are really the same," Hamrick said. "To
stereotype the elderly just because they
are old is an injustice. Not all old people
are senile. They are a very interesting
group and they are not all alike."
Dr. Denise Barnes, a clinical psycholo
gist at John Umstead Hospital and an
assistant professor at UNC in psychology
works in an in-patient situation.
"I plan on talking about problems the
elderly might have and some of their de
velopmental milestones," Barnes said.
"People continue to have developmental
milestones even after adolescence, con
trary to popular beliefs."
"People who are away from home a:.
"great deal are often rudely awakened to
aging," Barnes said. "They may develop
a sense of guilt or. helplessness concerning
a parent who might be getting old or
Representatives from the Campus Y
will also be present at the program so that
at the end of the program students can
talk with them about the possibilities of
volunteering to work with the elderly,

Legislature provides funds
for Planetarium deficit
By JAMES OSBORN
DTH Staff Writer
The Morehead Planetarium, presently
operating under a large deficit, received
$35,000 last week from the state legisla
ture to help it meet operating costs.
The planetarium's acting director, Jim
Manning, said the planetarium had built
a deficit of $150,000-$175,000. "We are
expected to operate largely on ticket re
ceipts," he said. "This makes it difficult
to make ends meet.
"We have been hoping for financial
help to erase our debt and start operating
in the black," he said. "This money from
the legislature will help make ends meet,
but it does not mean we are out of the
Manning said planetarium employees
were trying to operate the planetarium
economically and efficiently to help ease
the financial burden. "We have a huge
bill to pay the University," he said. "We
need to get to a good operating level so
we can have excess income and reduce
"Right now, we have no other specific
sources to get any money from," he said.
"We depend greatly on our ticket re
ceipts, and attendance has dropped in the
past few years."
' Manning said the Morehead Founda
tion, which provides scholarships and fel
lowships for UNC students, was not obli
gated to provide the planetarium with
money to help with operating expenses.
"The Foundation has been generous in
providing one-time gifts and capital im
provement funds," he said. "But they do
not provide money on a regular basis."
Rep. Trish Hunt, D-Orange, sponsored
the legislation that provided funds to the
planetarium. "We knew the planetarium
was operating under a deficit for several
years," she said. "Raising the admissions
prices would not cover the deficit, since
most of the visitors to the planetarium are
"We asked the legislature for $70,000,
but we knew we would not get that
much," she added. "All the special bills
were cut in half, so we only got $35,000."
Hunt said the planetarium would have
to look to other sources to provide extra
funds. "I think they can get along with
$50,000, if they can switch some pro
grams around," she said.
Manning is serving as acting director of
the planetarium following the resignation
of Tony Jenzano, which was effective
Oct. 1. "We are currently acting under a
short period of interim leadership,"
Manning said. Vice Chancellor for Uni
versity Relations Rollie Tillman is the
head of the committee in the process of
searching for a new director.
Manning said he did not know when
the new director would be chosen. "There
is no reason to rush. We want to carefully
select a new director.
"We are a little short-handed right
now," Manning said. "But this problem
will not affect the financial situation of
