.FSAC proposals diraw mixed reaictioB
By DEAN FOUST
The proposal approved by the Food Service Ad
visory Committee Monday to undergo major renova
tions in the food service program has drawn varied
reactions from UNC students and administrators.
Among changes recommended in the FSAC report"
were major renovations to the cafeterias on campus.
In the proposal, the FSAC recommended closing
Chase cafeteria in May for 15 months for renova
tions that would move the dining area to the first .
floor, simplifying access to the kitchen, which has
always been on the first floor.
Lenoir Hall would undergo first floor renovations
in May 1983 for 13 months also. According to the
FSAC proposal, the Pine Room would be closed for
renovations in May 1984 and would reopen in
January as a fast-food operation. It would assume
the duties of the Fast Break and the space used by
Fast Break would return to the Carolina Union.
In the proposal, control of residence hall snack bars
and the Pit Stop would be transferred to the food ser
vice, along with all vending operations and all video
games (except those in the Union). The FSAC said
that the transfer of these concessions would bring the
high profits and would provide a true food service at
The committee also recommended establishing a
room and board plan for an area on South Cam
pus probably Morrison Residence Hall when
Chase reopens, and then creating a comparable pro
gram on North Campus. The room and board plan
would be contigent on a financial "break-even"
The changes would be financed by obtaining a
short-term loan during ren"""' and paying the
loan interest from the transferred snack bar and ven
ding operations. Additional funding would come
from a mandatory student fee for food service.
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Donald
Boulton said Tuesday that with the present situation
dramatic changes would be necessary for food service
to continue at UNC. "We are so close to being down
and under that it may happen in two months," he
said. "We've been drifting that way for 10 years.
There isn't a company that can come in here and
make a profit under present circumstances."
Even with the nationwide connections and in
fluence the University has, it still would not be able
to manage a food service, Boulton said. ,
Boulton said that the FSAC proposals did not
finalize the situation. He said the proposals were not
perfect, but would give students a plan to work with.
Boulton said he would be meeting with student
groups in the next week to hear their criticism of the
proposals. ' -
Bob Mann, a student member of the FSAC, said
that despite reactions" from student leaders, he
thought there had been room ' for student input
throughout the process of drafting the proposals.
"From my perspective, the potential for student
input has been there all the way," he said. "Whether
students have been involved has been their choice..
"We're not there to tell the chancellor what to
do," he said. "We're there to analyze, to the best of
our ability, a set of concrete proposals of how the
food service should be operated in the future. The
members of the board represent many groups from

A UNC water ski club member demonstrates his skill at Orange Lake

Students build water stii program,

The only organized group of water
skiers in the Chapel Hill area is the UNC
Water Ski Club. The members, ranging
from beginners to experts, meet weekly

tion for those who enjoy slicing the sur
face of the water in the wake of a boat
only since the fall of 1979.
Pete Hitchens, the founder of the club,
transferred from the University of Ten
nessee which had a water-ski club. He
and others wrote to companies asking for
a promotional boat, searched for a ski

1980 became president for the first year
as a junior but retired. "I knew I
couldn't run it forever," he said, refer
ring to the club, "so I wanted to be there
when the new president took over." The
current president is Coburn Powell, a
senior from Whiteville.
Mastercraft, a boat company famous
in tournament competition, supplied the
club with a boat for $8,000 paid by the
University. The money serves as a secu
rity deposit, and is refundable should the
deal be terminated at any time. In the

Then came the problem of finding a
nearby skiing site. The initial site was
Quaker Creek in Haw River, North
Carolina, about 35 miles from Chapel
Hill. But Quaker Creek was short-lived
as a skiing site because there was neither
a gas pump nor a boatipjn which to
store the boat. Since the boat could not
be stored in the water, it had to be towed
' each time the members wanted to ski.
Hauling the boat proved to be too big a
problem, "especially to the one guy with"
a trailer hitch," Powell said.

In SCAU survey
Apartment f emits Hated.
By STEVE GRIFFIN
Among UNC students renting apart
ments in the Chapel Hill and Carrboro
areas, many have had complaints con
cerning , the insulation of their apart
ments, management's attitude toward te
nants, or pest control within the complex.
These conclusions were derived from
questionnaires distributed, by and re
turned to the Student Consumer Action
Union (SCAU) during the past two
months. The survey required that each
complex's tenants assign numbers one
through five to rate specific features of
their unit. A rating of one was excep
tional and five was poor.
SCAU acting chairman Gary Karesh
said a computer was used in mailing the
surveys by using the names of students
listed as apartment dwellersr .
"The computer randomly selected the
names of. students from each complex
and printed out their addresses," Karesh
said. "We got between 35 percent and 40
percent of these back."
He added that full interpretations of
the survey will appear in "The Southern
Part of Heaven?" which is expected to be
ready for distribution this week. Copies
will be available at no cost to students in
the Carolina Union and in the Housing
office in Carr Building. There will be
8,000 copies printed.

At Kingswood Apartments tenants re
ported a severe lack of storage space and
anxiety about the security of their apart
ments while they are away. Over half of
the responding tenants gave below aver
age and poor marks for these categories.
Additionally, a significant number were
not happy with the building's insulation.
"There's no closet space at all and the
threat of a break-in is certainly something
we have to think about," said Sandy
Heard, a sophomore from Greensboro.
"This place is always exciting. Bursting
pipes, electrical fires, frequent break-ins,
noisy neighbors, stolen car stereos and
other indignities keep boredom away,"
wrote one Kingswbod tenant. .
Many residents of Towne House
Apartments who responded gave below-
average and poor grades to their complex
in several categories. Pest control, repair
effectiveness and laundry facilities all
were aspects of Towne House that resi
dents found highly unfavorable.
A number of Towne House tenants
wrote that they had encountered dif
ficulty in trying to have repairs made by
"It is a lot of trouble to have anything
repaired. They're slow about everything,"

CGC members adapt to new jobs
Editor's note: This is the third in a five-part series on the Campus
By ALISON DAVIS
Members of the Campus Governing Council Finance Commit
tee have had only a month to learn the committee's functions be
fore they begin their biggest job of the year the budget process.
Beginning Thursday, March 25, the committee will review the
budget requests of 33 campus organizations that have asked for
funds from Student Activities Fees.
After studying a qualitative review of each organization, the
committee will decide if it will recommend CGC funding for the
group. In some cases, the committee may recommend funding
for only some of the programs sponsored by an organization.
But the Finance Committee's duties extend beyond the budget
process. If a campus organization requests additional funds dur
ing the year, or if a group not funded during the budget period
asks for money, the committee must review its request.
"Every cent they (CGC-funded organizations) are going to
spend eventually comes through me at least," said Finance Com
mittee Chairperson Charlie Madison.
Madison, a sophomore political science major from States
ville, said he oversees the allocation of funds and tells the CGC
what is happening with allocated money.
"I'm the closest thing to a (line of) communication between
the Student Body Treasurer and the CGC," he said.
Madison also fills a teaching role, explaining things to the
Finance Committee that "the treasury laws are not specific
"Rochelle (acting Student Body Treasurer Rochelle Hicker)
teaches me and I teach everybody else."
Committee members Dan Bryson (District 1 8), Kim Cottle (Dis
trict 14), Dana Simel (District 22) and Mark Martin (District 15)
said they looked forward to learning from the Finance Committee.
"You learn a whole lot quickly (about where Student Activities
Fees go)," Bryson said.
Returning CGC members Lori Dostsal (District 5) and Chip
Medlin (District 13) will be able to help the Finance Committee
during the budget sessions because they are already familiar with
the process, Madison said. '
Dostal and committee member Vince Steele (District 12) said
the Finance Committee will have to be careful about what pro
grams it funds.
"It's important to look at each .organization fairly," Steele
"It's going to be tight," Dostal said. "Last year it was tight
already and this year it's going to be worse."
Madison said the failure of the bill to increase Student Ac
tivities Fees would affect the number of programs funded.
"It's a matter of us (the CGC) and all the other organizations
biting the bullet really hard," he said. .

University demands Food Service changes
Third of three parts
By CHIP WILSON
From the flurry of financial options proposed to
foster a refurbished food service at UNC, a firm plan has
emerged for the student-financed refurbishment of
Chase Cafeteria and Lenoir Hall.
The proposal stemmed from an ultimatum delivered
through two University administrators: The food service
should either grow or shrink but it cannot continue
operating the way it is.
Such were the words constantly repeated Monday at a
meeting of the Food Service Advisory Committee, a
panel composed of faculty, administration and student
representatives. James Cansler, associate vice chancellor
for student affairs, and Charles Antle, an associate vice
chancellor for business and finance, presented com
mittee members with their proposal on University food
Panel members were asked to suggest changes. The
final version of the committee's proposal suggested a
mandatory board plan should be contingent on the food
service's release of the dollar amount required to break
even at each facility. Another change to the Cansler An
tle plan is the recommendation that the faculty and staff
members be required to sustain part of the costs of im
Speed was the key factor for the panel members to
consider. "We either have to fish or cut bait," Cansler
The proposal passed with little difficulty, with only
one FSAC member, Nick Dido, a business administra
tion professor voting against the package.
But greater dissension surfaced immediately after
wards in a meeting of several student groups. The dis
cussion centered on the ways UNC-CH students would
have to pay for the $4 million in renovations if the plan is
The areas in which students' pocketbooks may, be hit
include: ' '
Scholarship funds. The proposal to transfer snack
bars currently operated by Student Stores to the food
service would mean profits that had been going for stu
dent financial aid would go toward financing the reno
vations. Student Stores earns $57,500 annually from
residence hall snack bars and the Pit Stop, according to
Student Stores manager Thomas Shetley.
Monday's proposal stemmed from an
ultimatum delivered through two Univer
sity administrators: The food service
should either grow or shrink it can't
continue the way it is.
A mandatory meal plan in selected residence halls.
Once Chase Cafeteria is renovated in August 1983,
according to the plans a selected area on South Cam
pus, either a group of floors or an entire dormitory
would be required to purchase a meal plan. Once the up
per portion of Lenoir Hall is converted into a cafeteria,
students living in a selected area on North Campus
would also be required to buy a meal plan.
A fee to be charged to each student. This would
range between $10 and $15 per student, annually, and
would go toward payment of a long-term financing of
the renovated food facilities.
Cansler contended that students would ultimately
benefit from an expanded food service, despite the addi
tional cost. '
"If we take the larger picture, we will see expanded
work opportunities for more students," Cansler said. He
added that students also could save money because food
prices would be lower in a financially solvent food ser
In their report for the FSAC, Cansler and Antle also
answered potential student opposition to paying for a
facility that will be open to non-students. Their 'sug
gestion "might be to offer students a discount while
non-students pay a published price for purchases, or of
fer a surcharge where students pay a published price and
non-students pay an established percentage more," they
Although University officials said the plan was far
from final, it was presented Tuesday to Chancellor
Christopher C. Fordham III and his Administrative
Council, composed of his vice-chancellors and several
school deans. A Daily Tar Heel reporter was not allowed
to attend the meeting, but was told the Council would
not take official action on the food service proposal until
it could .review the report.
Regardless of the degree of input University admini
strators allow for students, none of their statements indi
cates they will let the food service dwindle. Growth is
their stated goal, and they have also clearly pointed out
who will pay for it.
. "Unless we find someone who is willing to pay $3 mil
lion to build a cafeteria in his name," Antle said, "the
students will have to provide the base of financial sup
port for the improvements."
Brezhnev proposes arms reductions
MOSCOW (AP) President Leonid I. Brezhnev announced a freeze on deploy
ing medium-range nuclear missiles in the European part of the Soviet Union Tues
day but warned of "retaliatory, steps if the United States and its NATO allies sta
tion new rockets in Europe.
. Brezhnev also said that unless the international situation worsens the Soviet
Union plans to "reduce a certain number of its medium-range missiles oa its own
initiative" west of the Urals, considered the European part of the Soviet Union.
But President Reagan said the proposal "simply isn't good enough, because it
doesn't go far enough," and challenged Brezhnev to "join in real arms reduction."
Reagan told the Oklahoma Legislature that Brezhnev's proposal would lock in a
lopsided Soviet advantage in intermediate-range missiles that can hit Western
Europe. "Our proposal is that we not deploy any intermediate missiles in exchange
for Soviet agreement to dismantle what they have," he said.
British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, however, dismissed Brezhnev's missile
freeze, which concerns rockets in the European part of the Soviet Union, or west of
the Ural Mountains.
"Thatcher told the House of Commons the decision ignored two facts: "Firsdy, it
freezes the total superiority of the Soviet Union in these particular theater nuclear
weapons. Secondly, it ignores the fact that the SS-20 missiles can just as well be
targeted on this country and the rest of Europe from beyond the Urals as they can
this side of them."
Factory production increases
WASHINGTON (AP) American factories and mines stepped up production by
1 .6 percent last month, breaking a string of six monthly declines stretching back to
the start of the recession, new government figures indicated Tuesday.
Economists inside and outside the government welcomed the new Federal
Reserve Board report but said it was hardly enough evidence to declare the recession
They pointed out that January's industrial production figures had been held
down by terrible weather in some parts of the nation and that February's numbers
probably look unrealistically good by comparison.
