Editor's note: This is the first in a four-part
series about housing at UNC changes, alter
natives and future developments.
By PAM DUNCAN
Assistant University Editor
Most students would agree that housing is one of
the biggest and most frustrating problems at UNC.
The struggle to find adequate housing on or near
campus that is affordable and liveable is familiar
to most, if not all, Carolina students.
Last year the housing department closed out
over 1,100 people, said Jody Harpster, associate
director of residence life.
The capacity for residence halls is 6,608, with 10
women's dormitories, 11 men's dormitories, and
eight co-educational dormitories on campus, while
UNC has an enrollment of 21,000 students,
said Associate Director of University Housing
Graham added that the waiting list for on-
campus housing this year numbered at least 800,
although that number is a little lower than last
Harpster said that there were two reasons why
students wanted to live on campus: on-campus
housing was more economical, and the general en
vironment was more supportive for students.
Harpster said that residence hall rents averaged
about $350 per semester substantially less than
apartment rents in the area.
The emotional and social support people get
while living on-campus is especially important,
Harpster said. "My philosophy is that it is suppor
tive of developing a sense of community on cam
pus. "I think one of the really strong points of the
housing program on campus is that we provide a
large number of different types of living
options suite-by-suite, floor-by-floor, wing-by-wing,
co-ed and single sex by floor and by
building," he said.
Most students agreed that onrcampus housing
was the most desirable arrangement because of the
proximity to classes. Hamster said.
David Helson, a Winston dormitory resident,
was quoted in the Daily Tar Heel (Wed., March
17) as saying, "Really the only reason I'd rather
live up here (ori campus) is because of the conve
Harpster said, "Given that more people want to
live on campus, we have two options," Harpster
said. "We must either increase available space by
building or we must examine existing spaces and
determine whether or not some are appropriate for
expansion in terms of number of occupants.
"Both options are being pursued at the present
time by the University," Harpster said.
Harpster said the decision to triple or quadruple
rooms was made after University housing found
that some rooms in several North Campus
residence halls were significantly larger than rooms
on South Campus and Middle Campus.
Harpster said that statistics on the number of
people in these rooms per square foot of space in
the rooms, combined with existing fire, safety and
plumbing codes, were considered when .deciding
which rooms should be tripled or quadrupled.
"We looked at each individual room," Harpster
said. "There was no random picking of rooms."
"We came up with approximately 220 spaces in
rooms on North Campus that could be utilized to
increase occupancy," he said.
He said the first of two main points of the tripl
ing plan was that most of upper and lower quads
on. North Campus will have some dormitories with
tripled rooms, with a large percentage in Cobb
Residence Hall. -
The second point is the significantly reduced
cost -to each person in the tripled room. "We're
not trying to make money," Harpster said. "We
will be reducing each person in the triple's room
rent by 20 percent, which may mean about $75 less
per person." -
"The people whose names were among the last
three or four drawn m the residence hall lotteries
are back in to the halls because of the expansion of
spaces," Harpster said. .
The University received a great deal of.
negative reaction from people in the rooms' to be
tripled, but there was very little reaction either
positive or negative from students in other
residence halls, he said.
He said that some residents whose rooms were
being tripled had submitted a petition protesting

John Temple will resign his postition as
UNC vice chancellor for business and

Christopher C. Fordham III announced
the resignation at the Board of Trustees
In other business, the trustees approv
ed the proposed design for the new dor
mitory to be built on Stadium Drive and
conducted a lengthy discussion of food
Temple called his resignation, one of
the most difficult decisions he had ever
made. "You may feel I'm abandoning
ship," he said. "That's not really the
case. "If I were making the decision from
my heart, I'd stay in Chapel Hill. It was
just something I had to do." . -
Temple will serve as executive vice
president of Emory University in Atlanta.
He has been vice chancellor for business
and finance since 1977.
The EOT unranimously aprroved the
proposed design for the new dorm to be
built beside Teague Residence Hall.
The total project cost of the 497-bed
dormitory will be about $6.8 million.
Four double rooms will be in each suite,
and there will be six" suites grouped
around a common living room, kitchen
and study room. The rooms will have
movable wardrobes instead of closets.
The six-floor building will have a snack
bar, information desk, laundry space and
a recreation room on the first floor.
"We feel the building relates well with
others in the area," said John Rodgers,
architect for Six Associates, the designers
of the dormitory. Rodgers said the con
crete and brick building "does as little
destruction of surroundings in a small
space as possible."
"We're aiming for completion of
working drawings by October," Rodgers
said. The bid for construciton will be
soon after Jan. 1 1983.
The BOT discussion of food service
renovation plans reflected the mood on
campus one of controversy.
Though the Board had not been asked
to take action on the proposal, which was
passed in 1976 and has yet to be started,
some members wanted to vote it down.
UNC must go before the North Carolina
legislature this summer to get funds from
this year's General Assembly, for renova
tion, Temple said.
The BOT gave the Committee on Stu
dent Affairs full control of the decision.
The committee will meet again before the
proposal comes before the Board of
Governors in May. The BOT does not
have to take action on the plan, but a new
plan must be formulated if the current
proposal is turned down.

Polls siirinise Reagan's popularity
By BONNIE GARDNER
. Staff Writer
While the latest Associated Press-NBC News poll showed that
Americans are divided over the success of President Ronald
Reagan's economic programs, the president's overall popularity
is declining among North Carolinians.
The Carolina Poll, a statewide telephone survey conducted by
the UNC School of Journalism, found that Reagan's job per
formance rating has slipped 14 percentage points since last fall.
The AP poll, conducted on March 29-30,. telephoned 1,603
adults chosen randomly across the country and asked them
whether they thought President Reagan's economic programs
were helping or hurting the nation. 37 percent said they thought
his programs were helping, while 36 percent said they thought
the programs were hurting the country. The rest were undecid-
The major tvoblems that the respondents indicated were
unemployment and inflation. The poll also showed that public
confidence in the president's economic programs is slipping. 15
percent said they had more confidence in the president than they
did a year ago, while 34 percent said they had less confidence. 49
percent said they had the same amount of confidence.
When asked if the respondents thought that Reagan's
economic policies had helped people such as themselves, hurt
people such as themselves or made no difference, 46 percent said
it made no difference. 38 percent said it has hurt people such as
themselves, 13 percent said it has helped, and 3 percent were

"poor." 48 percent of the respondents gave the president an ex-

No. 1-ranked North Carolina, down
12-9 with less than seven minutes to play,
took Johns Hopkins into overtime on
goals by Jeff Homire, Mike Burnett and
Brent Voelkel, whose tying goal came
with only 1:43 left.
In sudden death, both teams had op
portunities to score, but it wasn't until
UNC attackman Dave Wingate threw in
the winning goal with :35 left that the
Hopkins faithful knew they had lost their
first home game in four years.
Tough, physical defense around the
cage by both teams limited the number of
shots on goal, with Hopkins out-shooting
"In order for us to be successful we're
going to have to shoot the ball a little bit
more," head coach Willie Scroggs said,

. but I bet we didn't shoot the ball that
Wingate shot the ball just enough.
The 6-0, 180-pound Baltimore junior
led the game with six goals in front of a
rowdy hometown crowd of 3,500.
Voelkel, after sitting out last week's
Maryland game with a broken thumb,
scored three times, including the crucial
goal that tied the game at 12-12.
Voelkel's brother Pete, second-team
All-America at midfield last year and the
squad's MVP, scored once as did
Burnett, Homire and Ted Millspaugh.
The victory gives Carolina a 5-0 record
as Hopkins drops to 5-1 . The game mark

them in 1978.

worried about, was held to a single goal

offense to strike from outside. And they

WXYC station manager Bill Burton is on the air
...he says his station is an alternative for listeners
By CLINTON WEAVER
Editor's note : WXYC is not a. "typical"
radio station by anyone's standards. The
first of this four-part series explains the
development of WXYC's unique musical
format and its role as alternative listening
for the local listenership.
On the FM dial at 89.3 is a radio sta
tion many people have not heard nor
heard of, yet it is a student-funded station
located in the Carolina Union. Its name?
Bill Burton is the station manager at
WXYC. He describes the station's music
as mostly rock and roll recorded between
1954-1982, as well as jazz, blues, reggae,
"kickass rock" and pop, all playe'd inter
mittently throughout the week. The sta
tion plays a fairly homogeneous mixture
of music, Burton said.
Who listens to WXYC? Burton said
it's a wide range of people. "It's all age
groups. We have Chapel Hill High
School and the junior high school kids
listening to us. We have Carolina
students of all kinds: preppies, . the
organic types, dis-gruntled WQDR
listeners, old WDBS (Duke's campus
radio station) listeners and graduate
students. Also, a lot of community peo
ple listen to us," he said.
Burton sees the direction of the station
as toward a viable alternative to other
local radio stations. Its alternative is
mostly modern music, not Billboard's
Top 200. There are too many good bands
other than those with publicity and pro
motion that deserve airplay, in Burton's
A "black music" station is on one side
of FM 89 on the radio dial and WUNC; a
classical station, is on the other. Burton
doesn't try to play all kinds of music
because other stations such as those men
tioned play the kinds WXYC excludes
from their programming. Instead, the
station is concerned with its brand of
music: progressive, contemporary songs.
Several people made a group decision a
little over five years ago to have a pro
gressive outlook mirrored in the music
coming from the WXYC transmitter. The
times were more liberally oriented in 1977
and the format reflected that campus
cultural trend, Burton said.
Volunteer disc jockeys get to choose
around 60 percent of the music they play,
along with requests from the public.
About 35 percent of the music is from the
"rotation" a set of mostly new albums
from which selections must be played
periodically. The DJs are hired on the
basis of their working knowledge of
music, not because they like to talk on the
air. It's helpful if they are familiar with
the kind of music that WXYC plays.
Most of the staff at the radio station are
students. A few non-students are kept on

Haig: Falklands crisis may flare soon
LONDON (AP) U.S. Secretary of State Alexander M. Haig Jr. said after 1 1 Vz
hours of talks Monday with British leaders that "time is slipping away from us" in
averting a South Atlantic war between Britain and Argentina over the Falkland
He said "substantial difficulties" remained between the two sides despite "some
progress" and that he was flying back to Buenos Aires early Tuesday for a second
found of talks with Argentina's leaders.
On Monday, Britain clamped a naval blockade around the south Atlantic islands
seized by Argentine forces on April 2 following a 149-year-old sovereignty dispute.
Four hunter-killer submarines are at the Falklands with orders to sink any ships
violating the 200-mile war zone.
Argentina, apparently at Haig's urging, called its navy back to port before the
zone went into effect, at 1 1 p.m. EST Sunday, but is has made clear it considers the
blockade aggression that would have to be removed by force if Haig's efforts failed.
Palestinians riot in occupied lands
JERUSALEM (AP) Palestinians rioted throughout the occupied territories
Monday, enraged by a Jewish gunman's attack on the Moslem shrine Temple
Mount. Israeli troops and police used rifle fire, rubber bullets and tear gas to battle
the worst Arab riots in years. '
Israel Television counted 30 disturbances in Arab East Jerusalem, the occupied
West Bank and Gaza Strip, and said 30 people were wounded 16 Palestinian
Arabs hit by Israeli gunfire in four separate riots and !4 Israelis or foreign tourists
mostly injured by rocks hurled by Arab rioters. One soldier, hit by a rock in Nablus
in the West Bank, was among the Israelis injured.
Voting Rights Act march planned
ATLANTA (AP) The Southern Christian Leadership Conference has an
nounced plans for a five-state march from Alabama to Washington; D.C. to urge
congressional approval of an extension of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
Dr. Joseph Lowery, president of the SCLC, said the march will begin April 19 in
