Plan ties health fees to insurance
By BILL RIEDY
Assistant State and National Editor
A proposal before the N.C. Insurance
Commission designed to save college
students more than $100 on large medical
bills, might also improve student health
services in the long run.
Dr. William McRae, director of Stu
dent Health Services at UNC
Greensboro, submitted the proposal to
Insurance Commissioner John Ingram's
office last September. The proposal
would allow students to apply their stu
dent health fees toward their medical in
surance policy deductible.
But the matter still is under considera
tion by the Insurance Commission. Since
the proposal already has been submitted
to the commission the next step is up to
In a statement released Sept. 29, In
gram stated his support for the idea and
said he would set up investigatory hear
ings at universities around the state to get
a feeling for the support the proposal
may have. He then could approve the
proposal and decide when it would take
McRae, however, said no hearings had
'Yack' delayed by overruns,
should be out in two weeks
By BILL ROSE
Despite a number of unexpected cost
overruns, the 1983 Yackety Yack will be
distributed in two weeks, a Yack repre
sentative said Monday.
Peter Krogh, associate editor of the
1983 Yackety Yack, said the yearbook
had been completed and would be sent to
the Hunter Publishing Co. in Dallas,
Texas on April 2 to be published.
Krogh said a major reason for the
delay of yearbook distribution was un
expected costs. "We have recently dis
covered a cct overrun of about $3,000,"
he said. "T.iis has caused us a few prob
lems, but we expect to have it resolved by
Friday. We have most of the money right
"The absolute worst thing that could
happen would be to cut out a few pages
to pay for the expenses," he said. "The
essential point is that the book will go out
Krogh said a recent three-week delay
by the publishing company pushed the
distribution date to early April. "They
have a commitment to a number of
schools, and they wanted to wait

at one time and do
a better job on it,"

The Yackety Yack is traditionally one
of the better college yearbooks in the
country, Krogh said. "So many yearbook
staffs around the country look at the
Yack as an example," he said. "1 think if
you compared the Yack with a number of
other yearbooks, you would much rather
have ours on your bookshelf."
Krogh said the 1983 Yack is geared
much more towards students, and he
believes it reflects university life clearer
than the past couple of volumes. "What
we did was make a book that students
been scheduled. He said he had called the
commission about the status of the pro
posal and was waiting for someone to
return his call.
No one was available at the commis
sioner's office last week to. discuss the
"Policies generally have a deductible
of $100 to $150 that you have to pay, and
the insurance pays everything over that,"
said Darryll Hendricks, and executive
vice president for student government at
UNC. "Since students pay a student
health fee, they could get a receipt for it
at student health and take it later on to
cover the deductible. The fee would be
classified as a first payment (toward
UNC students currently pay $77 per
semester, or $154 a year, in student health -fees.
The administration of Student Body
President Paul Parker is working through
the UNC Association of Student Govern
ments to solicit support from all schools
in the 16-campus UNC system.
"I can't possibly see why any student
would be against this," Hendricks said.
In addition to the obvious advantage to
parents and students, the University

I think if you com

would really want," he said. "We have
heeded the criticism and suggestions from
students and faculty.
"That is our responsibility to make
a book for our subscribers, the students,
and not for our own pleasures," he said.
For instance, the 1982 Yack was a great
yearbook of Chapel Hill, but it did not
reflect the university as much as it could
have, Krogh said.
Lisa Granberry, editor of the 1984
Yackety Yack and managing editor of the
1983 Yack, said she agreed the 1983 Yack
was more student-oriented. "The proofs
that I have seen of the book are very, very
good," she said. "The staff has done a
lot to make it a good student yearbook.
There is much more written copy in this
Yack than in the '82 issue. It's a little
unusual, but catchy." .
Granberry said her No. 1 priority with
the 1984 Yack is to get it out on time.
"We're hoping to get it out by November
or December," she said. "We will have a
large group of people here this summer,
and that is.when we will do the bulk of
Krogh said he hoped students would
remember the value of owning a year
book. "It's not a book you throw away
after six months," he said. "It is. best ap
preciated five to 10 years after you have
left Chapel Hill."
It is impossible to defeat an ignorant man in argument.
'Serving the students and the University community since 1893'

would benefit from the proposal, he said.
Since the proposal could save students
over $100, Hendricks said, "the Universi
ty could raise student health fees by a
small amount and thus could improve
SHS and allow them to cover more ser
vices." In the long range it will save insurance
companies money. But they will lose lots
of revenue in the short run," Hendricks
"The insurance companies will fight
this they're pretty big and powerful,"
McRae said. "Unless they think of
something themselves, they don't like to
think it's a good idea."
McRae said the intention was for the
proposal to be used by all colleges and
universities in North Carolina before stu--dent
governments promote it on-a.na--ti6nal
scale. "If we can get out foot in the
door, it could conceivably be a big
thing," he said.
Even if implementing the proposal
wouldn't mean any more immediate ac
tual dollars for student health services,
McRae said it would be a psychological
advantage for the student health industry
nationwide because of the long-run

In a full session Monday night, the
CGC voted 13-8 to reject a bill which
would stop the CGC from appropriating
subsequent funds to any organization for
the fiscal year 1983-84 unless the com
bined funds of Student Government in
cash at the Student Activities Fund Office
and the Investment exceeded $40,000.
The CGC also voted to exempt them
selves from the Treasury Law which sets
the $40,000 limit. .
The Treasury Law in question, Article
VIII, Section 2, states "the combined
funds of Student Government in cash at
the Student Activities Fund Office and in
the Investment shall never fall below
$40,000." Watson said Student Govern
ment currently has $15,728.98 in cash
which includes a $10,000 loan from The
Daily Tar Heel which reverted back into
the Student Government fund this week..

UNC receives four-acre estate
By STEVE FERGUSON
Assistant University Editor
UNC has been given the title to the
house and property of the late Louise V.
Coker, a four-acre estate located at 609
North St. in Chapel Hill.
Charles D.-Fox III and his wife,
Preston W. Fox, of Roanoke, Va., were
heirs to. 4he property and responsible for
the gift, Chancellor Christopher C. For

Coker died last year.
The Coker home is considered one of
Chapel Hill's most beautiful estates. Ford

Patricia Wallace, chairperson for the
Rules and Judiciary Committee, said she
didn't agree with the Council's decision
to reject the bill. "I thought it was rather
negligent of the Council," she said.
"However, Council is aware of the prob
lem and I feel it will take measures, such
as an increased awareness of the Treasury
Laws and the functions of the student
body treasurer for the CGC to become
more fiscally responsible."
Tim Newman, CGC representative
from District 11, said in support of rejec
ting the bill: "We cannot take a stand
saying we are not going to do anything
else (appropriate more funds) this year;
there could be a program that desperately
needs funding and we could not do it if
this bill were passed."
Paul Parker, student body president,
voted against the bill and added he did
not think the Student Government had
broken the law. "I think we have not in
terpreted this correctly," he said. "It
might have to go to the Student Supreme
Court, but I don't believe we have broken
the law at all."
Parker said a question arises in Article

The Foxes, who would have inherited
the property if the University had not ac
cepted it, decided to change the restric
tions of the will.
"The conditions in the will are no
longer valid," Wagoner said. She said she
wasn't aware of the estate's value or how
the University would use it.
"I think there is potential for good use
for the University," Wagoner said. Im
provements to the house will include
plumbing, wiring, and heatingcooling
renovations, Wagoner said.

said. "I think there is an ambiquity there

Dan Hall, CGC representative from
District 14, said it didn't matter if the
$40,000 limit is arbitrary. "The fact is
that we are below the limit which is the
law, and if Student Government purpose
ly violates the Treasury Laws, it really is
in bad shape," he said.
The CGC voted to establish a task
force to review and investigate the Stu

will examine the Student Government
Constitution, the By-Laws of the CGC,
