People and puppets and four
Japanese Buddhist monks formed a
colorful parade down Franklin Street
Sunday afternoon, as part of the
World Peace March to support the
nuclear arms freeze movement. .
The four monks, who have walked
1,200 miles since New Year's Day
when they started in New Orleans,
walked through downtown Chapel
Hill beating drums and carrying color
ful banners. They had shaven heads
and were dressed in orange and white
cotton robes, two were wearing jogg
At the Franklin Street post office
they were greeted by Mayor Joe
Nassif , Vice Chancellor of University
Relations Rollie Tillman and a three-
member coordinating committee.
"It's time that we as people realize
that peace will not be obtained by
guns and bombs and planes, but by
people working together as we see to
day," Nassif said. The monks smiled
Rev. Morishita Ihyama, one of the
monks, said they walked 15 to 20 miles

sometimes 100 people, sometimes a
thousand," he said.

' Assistant University Editor -
The RHA Board of Governors advocated closing
Chase Cafeteria and rqnovating only Lenoir Hall at the
second meeting in four days held Sunday to discuss pro
posed food service changes at UNC.
The committee members will present their ideas at the
RHA Board of Governors meeting today. In addition to
supporting the renovations of Lenoir Hall, they oppose
any mandatory meal plan on campus.
"The most important thing is that there not be a man
datory meal plan," said RHA President Scott
"An alternative better than a mandatory meal plan
would be a University-wide fee to subsidize the financial
base for the food service," Templeton said.
"All we know now is just enough to say we don't like
what they're proposing."
Two RHA governors plan to administer a food service
survey at their individual dormitory election polls on.
campus' Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, said Anna
Giattina, executive assistant, to Templeton. Those plan-,
ning to do the survey are Teresa Blackwood, governor of
Olde Campus, and Melissa Morgan, governor of Scott
Residence College. Other residence halls and colleges will
not participate in the survey.
"It's more or less a way for each governor who wants
to find out what their area thinks about campus food
service," Giattina said.
. "We know how people feel about a mandatory meal
plan," Blackwood said. "We want to find out how they
feel about a mandatory University-wide fee."
Blackwood said she and Morgan planned to give the
survey results to Templeton for his presentation of
RHA's ideas at the Board of Trustees meeting on Fri
day, April 9.
A campus-wide meeting on food service will probably
be held the week after the BOT meeting, Giattina said.
"There is no way to get a meeting organized successfully
before Friday." The meeting will be an attempt to in
form the student body about the proposed food service
changes and to answer any questions people might have.
: "This doesn't mean that Student Government -.and
RHA and the administration are going to get up there
and start arguing," Giattina said. "Also, we have to
have people show up, or it's not going to do any good."
Templeton said the best solution would be to put off.
deciding the food service issue for a year until students
find out what they really want to do about it.
"I really do think that there are going to be some peo
ple who are going to want to go on a mandatory food
system, if they (the administration) prove it is good,"
"We've never had one before and that's the reason
it's so hard to get a mandatory meal plan accepted
here," she said.
But Linda Howey, former governor of the Spencer,
Triad and Old Well Residence College, said that the lack
of any mandatory meal plan on campus is one incentive
for people to come to UNC. ,
RHA's food services proposals are threefold, Giattina
said. First, only the top floor of Lenoir Hall will be
renovated this year, with no tast tooa service
downstairs. Second, Fast Break will remain in the Union
and Chase Cafeteria will be closed in May and may be
renovated by 1984. Third, if Chase Cafeteria is closed,
the South Campus snack bars will need to be upgraded
in order to handle students' food needs.
"Technically, the Food Service Advisory Committee's
proposal says Chase Cafeteria will be reopened by
September of 1983 if renovations begin this May as plan
ned," Giattina said.
"Since South Campus will be without a foocTservice
for a year anyway if Chase Cafeteria closes, they might
as well make it two years," Giattina said. .
The administration wants to renovate the campus
rood service now because the cost of the renovations will
have risen by about $470,000 which probably only costs
between $20 and $25 per student per year in three years.
Templeton said the food service renovation should be
postponed until the University was positive of the need
for a food service.
"Students in the past have not shown much interest in
the campus food service," he said.
Food service decision nears
The dispute focusing on proposed changes in UNC
food service comes down the homestretch this week in
prelude to this Friday's vote by the UNC Board of
Several meetings will be held this week to discuss a
report presented March 5 by the Food Service Advisory
Committee that calls for major changes in present food
operations and alternative proposals advocated by Stu
dent Government and the Residence Hall Association.
Representatives from Student Government will meet
this morning with Charles Antle, associate vice
chancellor for business; Biruta Nielsen, aiitanl to the
vice chancellor; James Cansler, associate dean for stu
dent affairs; the three co-authors ot the FSAC
report based on recommendations made by that commit
tee. The groups will prepare for a meeting of the FSAC
scheduled this afternoon.
Cansler and Antle will meet with Vice Chancellor of
Business John Temple and UNC Chancellor Christopher
C. Fordham III Tuesday morning, and the Chancellor's
Advisory Committee will meet in the afternoon.
On Friday morning the Student Affairs Committee of
the Board of Trustees will meet with the full board at a
meeting scheduled for later in the day. The BOT is ex
pected to take action on the foc seryic sKuatidn from
the proposals offered by the different groups.
The report approved by the FSAC recommends
renovating Chase Cafeteria and the Pine Room, and
moving the Carolina Union Fast Break to Lenoir Hall.
The. report also advocates mandatory student fees for
food service, tentatively set at $12.50, and the establish
ment of a mandatory meal plan for selected South Cam
pus residence halls or dormitory floors, with the same
plans eventually set for areas of North Campus. The
renovations would be financed by a short-term loan dur
ing the renovation period which would be repaid with
profits channelled from the snack bars and vending
operations. The plan calls for transferring the snack bars
and vending operations to the food service.
A report written by Student Government recommen
ding alternative proposals was presented to the ad
ministration March 22, calling for revisions in the FSAC
proposals for renovations of campus cafeterias. The Stu
dent Government report advocated only one meal to be
served each day at Chase Cafeteria instead of the three
suggested by the FSAC. This would refute the need for
additional kitchen renovations, the report stated. The
proposal also opposed the transfer of the Fast Break
from the Carolina Union, and placed a list of conditions
on the FSAC's proposed mandatory room and board
plan. The proposals also called for a gradual phasing in
of any new food service and recommended that a new
plan involve only the minimum number of students need
ed to meet a financial break-even point. It also ad
vocated that required meals be limited to 10 per week,
and that the University provide more specific informa
tion concerning the availability of student jobs that have
been promised in a new food service.
Cansler said last week that he disagreed with Student
Government's proposal to serve only one meal a day at
Chase, since the major cost centered on the utilities and
the kitchen and seating area renovations.
Student Body President Mike Vandenbergh said Sun
day night the Student Government proposal called for a
fast food "Rathskeller-type" operation in Chase
cafeteria which would require less manpower and
renovations, and that the kitchen and seating areas could
be compacted in order to save on utility costs.
Vandenbergh said Student Government was pushing
to have their proposals incorporated into any report put
before the BOT, rather than offering it as a separate
report when the BOT meets this Friday.
"We'd like to have these proposals incorporated into
the report given to the Board of Trustees," he said.

report will come through'
Ron Hyatt, chairman of the Food
Service Advisory Committee
"The original (FSAQ proposal was sold as a docu
ment that could and would be revised as it progressed,"
he said. "That's the spirit Student Government is work
ing on in the Administration and Administrative Council
meetings and through the Board of Trustees."
Chairman of the FSAC Ron Hyatt said last week that
he supported the proposals recommended by that com
mittee, but also respected the Student Government
"I thought the (FSAQ report was well done with
good committee input," he said.
"I salute the Student Government for their report. I
think they had some very fine and positive points to
make," Hyatt said.
"I don't think all the (FSAQ recommendations are
set in concrete. I tiunk the Student Government report
will come through. I had some disagreements with it, but
I applaud their methods."
Only one responds to 'Southern Part of Heaven' '
Apartment managers polled for opinions of ratings
By STEVE GRIFFIN
The recent publication of "The Southern Part of
Heaven," an evaluation of local apartment complex
quality, has gone largely unnoticed by the apartment
managers, according to a survey conducted earlier this
Area apartment managers were asked to comment on
the grades their complexes received in the booklet, which
is published and revised annually by the Student Con
sumer Action Union. SCAU compiled the grades from
questionnaires given to students living in apartments last
Only one of the managers contacted reported having
seen the new version of the booklet. The other managers
were given a brief summary of the evaluation and asked

excellence from the students surveyed.
"We try hard to please our tenants," he said. "We
rent to a crossbreed of people here and we treat them all
alike. I think that helps explain our popularity."
A spokesman for Foxcroft Apartments, who wished
not to identify himself, refused to comment on the low
grades given to the quality of insulation there.
"We don't feel that it needs to be improved and we
have no comment. We have no comments to make at
all," he said.
Glen Lennox Manager Ralph Bass reflected on the
booklet's statement that the new management there
compared unfavorably with the management before the
complex was sold about a year ago.
"Instead of the old one-owner situation, our firm's
policies are now determined from a central location
away from here," he said. "Many people that have been
here are just reluctant to change. Anytime there is a
change there will be some who don't like it."
Camelot Apartments received an acceptable rating in
the booklet and Manager Mary Jenkins had no com

month ago," she said. "Our new owners are putting

Committee studies race relations
By KYLE MARSHALL
A new committee composed of
students, faculty and the administration
has recently been formed to look into
race relation problems at UNC.
The Study Committee on Race Rela
tions, begun by Vice Chancellor for
University Affairs Harold Wallace, with
the aid of the Student Government
Association, the Black Student Move
ment and the BlackWhite Dialogue,
Committee, is attempting to improve race
relations by making suggestions and
recommendations to the University.
The committee is "a group that was
put together after some of the so-called
'racial incidents' occurred last fall,"
Wallace said. "It's an attempt to pull
together various individuals and
organizations to work on improving race
The committee has met three times to
date and will make recommendations on
what is needed to improve race relations,
Wallace said. "Some of the things we
might be doing in the future will be in
itiating programs in the residence halls
and forming discussion groups."
Although the committee is still in the
planning stages, it has created task forces
to look into different areas where improvement-
needs to be made, said com
mittee member Tony Lathrop, who
represents Student Government. These
task force areas include residence hall
life, orientation, classroom experience
and campus organizations, he said.
"We're still in the process of planning
a course of action for the committee, but
we feel these task force areas will increase
awareness of racial conditions," Lathrop
said. "Right now we're trying to figure
out where we're going with the commit
tee. We think a lot of progress can be
made toward improving race relations.
When we started, we decided to work'
hard to come up with some visible
BSM chairperson Wende Watson said
there had "not been enough time for the
committee to come up with any concrete
plans for improving race relations. But
the fact that the committee was formed
might indicate concern for the im
provements of relations on campus. I
hope it's successful."
