Police will patrol,
By LYNDA THOMPSON
Freshmen will not be the only people at
tending Orientation mixers at UNC this year.
Plainclothes policemen will also be at the
mixers to enforce the alcohol ordinance
passed a year and a half ago that outlaws
alcohol consumption in public streets, ac
cording to Sally Bordsen, area director for
Stowe Residence College.
Bordsen said she has been warned about x
the policemen and patrol cars that will be in
the area. Area coordinators will have to
stress to freshmen that they can be arrested
if they are found with alcohol in public, she
The Chapel Hill Town Council no longer
allows street parties, Bordsen said. The new
policy will not allow the street to be blocked
off for an all-campus mixer.
Plain clothes policemen will possibly be
attending Stowe's "Carolina Fever" party or
Stowe's campus party, Bordsen said. The
"Carolina Fever" party will include Carolina
blue soda and feature mic man Gene
Krcelic. The party will stress campus unity,
Other Orientation plans for Stowe Resi
dence College include a picnic with Hender
son Residence College and a party to build a
sundae, which will fill a baby pooL
Orientation Week will be similar for the
freshmen of Morehead Residence College,
said area Coordinator Brent Clark.
Clark said Moreheads plans include a piz
za party, Hawaiian mixer, chicken pickin',
night on the town, and possibly a Softball
game against South campus.
Besides these social events, Orientation
will sponsor programs to help freshmen learn

Orientation workers provide manpower, supervision to parents and students
... an organized operation makes moving into dorms much easier
about the campus and academic procedures.
A scavenger hunt to be held on campus
will help the freshmen learn the physical lay
out of the campus, Clark said. A registration
carnival will familiarize students with regi
stration and academic requirements, he said.
Both Bordsen and Clark said the only prob
lems they had faced with Orientation had
been the late arrival of freshmen names.
Orientation counselors were delayed in writ
ing letters to the freshmen.
Shirley Hunter, assistant dean of Student
Life and an Orientation counselor, said the
Orientation Commission requested the list
of freshmen three or four weeks ago, but the
Administrative Data Processing office did
not provide the list until last week.
Orientation will commence Sunday,
August 15 when 3,400 freshmen arrive. A
freshman convocation to be held the next
night will include a new slide show. Donald
Beeson, media production coordinator, has
put together a new show about the Univer
sity to replace the one which has been used
for the past several years.
Convocation for transfer students will
also be held Sunday. Two mint-convocations
will be held for graduate students August 17

Privately sponsored research at univer
sities benefits studenb as welTas investors,
but because of past problems industry now
funds only about 3 percent of all research at
At UNC-CH industry funds only half that
amount of research, but the figure rises as
high as 25 percent at other schools in the
16-campus UNC system, administrators said
According to a survey of private business
executives and university administrators by
the California Institute of Technology, indus
try officials usually rely on their own scien
tists and facilities unless universities can
show a clear cost advantage or superior ca
pacity to complete a particular study. "
But university officials said the greatest
barrier to privately sponsored research in
their schools was the conflict between the
need for scholars to publish the results of
their studies freely and the company's need
to protect such results from competitors
Both groups indicated that industry's em
phasis on "short-term profits and product
improvement" was another restricting fac
tor. . , . .
Kenneth A. Smith, associate provost and
vice-president for research at M.I.T., told in
dustry and university officials at a confer
ence at American University in Washington,
D.C. that exchanges of information between
academic and industrial scientists had been
poor because of "two or more decades of
almost exclusive federal patronage," accord
ing to the Chronicle of Higher Education.
Smith also said 11 percent $20.5 mil
lionof all basic research at M.l.T. was pri
vately funded, an increase of 7.5 percent
from, a few years ago. But Smith said he
doubted that in the future the national
average would exceed 11 percent
Industry funds only about 1.5 percent of
basic research at UNC-CH, but funds $7.
million or 25 percent of basic research at
N.C. State. Charles Wheeler, an administra
tor in the UNC Research and Public Policy
Programs office said that such a discrepancy
was due to the fact that the Raleigh campus
was a more technical ly-oriented institution
with engineering and agricultural programs.
Some of the chief sponsors of research at
State include IBM, Egrigenetics (a company
concerned with biotechnology in agricul
ture), IT&T, and Exxon. Major investors in
research at Carolina are AMF-CUNO, Gen
eral Electric, E.I. Dupont-DeNemours, Tech
nicon and Cotton, Inc.
Wheeler said, "Industrial support is up
and growing at each school" and said that
funds for basic scientific - research were
holding up well, but "funds for behavioral
sciences are down significantly."
N.C. State has recently, received a grant
from the National Science Foundation to set
up a Center for Research in Communica
tions and Signal Processing which will even
tually become a universityindustry co-operative
involving up to a dozen corporations.
