WllNC-radio, a public service of the University,
will hold a listener marathon next month to
celebrate its 10th anniversary.
The radio station will hold its annual pledge
marathon, "Listen 85." from Nov. 2 to Nov. 9 to
try to raise $220,000 in listener contributions, said
Jeanne Phillips, the station's developmental
WUNC, which provides informational, educa
tional and cultural programming for central North
Carolina, depends on listener support, she said. Fifty
percent of the station's funds come from private
sources, 38 percent from contributions from the
University and only 12 percent from federal support,
The station's format consists of news and
information, and classical, jazz and folk music,
broadcast without commercials, Phillips said.
WUNC was a student-run station in the 1950s and
'60s and went off the air in 1971. When the
community demanded that the station return to the
air, the University reactivated the service in 1976,
A survey conducted in spring 1985 revealed that
the station attracted 83,300 listeners throughout
central North Carolina. The station presently serves
40 counties in the state and four counties in Virginia.
"While we're certainly a public service of UNC,
we also serve a broad constituency," Phillips said.
More than 200 volunteers will answer telephones
and record pledges during the marathon, which
starts at 5 a.m. on weekdays and 6 a.m. on weekends.
"If 5,500 people would contribute an average of
$40 each, we should be able to achieve our goal,"
To encourage contributions, individuals and
businesses donate premiums, or incentives, for
persons calling in to contribute a certain amount.
Some of the gifts that will be offered to
contributors include a WUNC 10th anniversary T
shirt, a subscription to listen, WUNC's monthly
magazine, catered dinners, a demonstration flight
in a sailplane and a new book by Joe Graedon,
who hosts a WUNC Saturday morning call-in show,
"People's Pharmacy," she said.
Some national companies, including Interna
tional Business Machines Corporation arid Sperry
Corporation, will match the tax-deductible contri
butions of jtheir employees.
Local restaurants have offered to donate meals
for the volunteers, she said.
Although WUNC will continue its regular 20
hour per day programming during the marathon,
special guest interviews, performers, programs, and
highlights from the past 10 years will be inserted
into the regular format.
Some of the special guests will include Chapel
Hill Mayor Joe Nassif, Carrboro Mayor Jim Porto,
Woody Durham, UNC president William C. Friday,
Chancellor Christopher C. Fordham III and jazz
singers Carol Sloane and Paul Montgomery.
On Nov. 2, a jazz concert produced and recorded
by WUNC will air nationally.
Any student who wishes to volunteer his time
for the marathon should contact Fred King at 966
5454 or stop by the station office in Swain Hall,

"A lot of times just getting up in the
morning and getting ready for inspec
tion, we'd ask ourselves, 'Is it worth
it?' " said Wynn Matthews, a junior
transfer student from Marion Military
Institute in Marion, Ala.
Matthews, from Winston-Salem, is a
commissioned officer in the Army
through the early commissioning pro
gram, a high school Reserve Officers
Training Corps program that sends
students to a military school for two
years after they graduate.
Matthews described his ROTC train
ing at Marion as difficult, but worth
the effort. "Once we'd see something in
the news involving the military, like the
Grenada operation, the pride would
come out," he said.
That kind of pride is necessary to be
in any branch of the military, whether
in service or simply in a college ROTC
program, and people without it don't
stay in the ROTC, according to inter
views with students and instructors in
UNC's ROTC programs.
There is a 50 percent dropout rate
for Air Force ROTC members, said
Capt. Joseph P. Avery, an associate
professor in aeronautics and an
AFROTC instructor. He said lack of
commitment was the most common
reason students dropped out.
ROTC is not for everybody, said
Rhon Rupp, a Naval ROTC dropout
and a senior from Williamsport, Pa.
"The thing I didn't like most was
wearing the uniform on campus," Rupp
said. "I felt like I was in the service
already. I wanted to be a regular
student, and they wanted me to get my
When Rupp was in ROTC from 1980
to 1982, the public morale toward the
military was not as positive as it is now,
Time commitment is also a factor in
the dropout rate, said David Dawson,
a senior NROTC midshipman from
Concord, Md. The ROTC's courses,
drills and summer programs require a
large amount of students' time.
"In order to get full benefit of the
ROTC, it has to be one of the primary
activities in college," Dawson said. "The
program itself has a lot of academic
electives, and summers are usually taken
up by programs."
ROTC cadets must also meet string
ent physical requirements. Among them
are testing for color blindness, asthma
and sleepwalking. One cannot enter the
military if he sleepwalks, although
Avery said he had no idea why it was
important. Other requirements are
weight and physical standards, such as
being able to run three miles in 24
Lisa Toler, a senior AFROTC cadet
from New Bern, said instructors would
surprise cadets with weigh-ins, as they
did last year right after the Christmas
Staying in shape year-round is
imperative to staying in the ROTC
program, said Frank Linkous, a junior
"(The ROTC officers) keep an eye
on you if you're near your maximum
weight and put you on probation if you
go over," he said.
After the probationary period if the
weight is not down to military levels,
the cadet can be thrown out of the
Speaking of his time at Marion,
Matthews said he had to meet daily
requirements. Grades, rooms, tardies,
leaves from campus and mandatory
study time all were monitored strictly
with demerits and corporal punishment.
"Those who didn't want to be there
left," he said.
At Marion, students could receive
eight demerits per week, Matthews said.
For every demerit over eight, the
student would have to march for 25
"The Army is not as strict as the
military schools," he said. "It's more of
an ideal situation (in the schools)."
The main thing the ROTC and the
military teaches is to lead and to act
responsibly, he said.
Jim Wood, a freshman NROTC
midshipman from Toledo, Ohio,
agreed. "(But ROTC's) nothing like
going through boot camp," he said.
Wood served four years in the Marine
"The ROTC's primary concern is
academics," he said. "It's a big change
coming from active duty to here."

The UNC curriculum in recreation administration
has received a three-year grant for a project promoting
The U.S. Department of Education's Office of
Special Education awarded the $237,000 grant for
Project LIFE (Leisure is for Everyone), which will
involve a series of workshops in eight cities during .
its first year, said Carrie McCann,' project coordinators
"The workshops are for able-bodied people to make
11 them aware that disabled people are able to be a part
of the community as a whole, not just in activities
specifically for the disabled," McCann said.
"We want to give people the idea that everyone
is responsible for serving the disabled, not just the
specialists (those who are specially trained to work
with the disabled)," she said.
She described Project LIFE as a handicapped
awareness program to help educate the public about
the special needs of the handicapped. Various
simulations of handicapped situations have been used
in previous projects to make people aware of those
special needs, she said.
The second and third years of Project LIFE will
involvethe production and nationwide distribution
of audiovisual materials to help other cities recognize
the capabilities of the handicapped, McCann said.
"Our goal is to spread the philosphy (that
handicapped people are employable) throughout the
U.S. to educators and employers, so that disabled
people can be integrated into the community," she
The grant will pay for a training manual to be
used in the workshops, travel expenses for the
workshops, personnel and the production and
distribution of the audiovisual tapes.
The grant alone, however, will not cover all
expenses, McCann said.
"We will seek corporate and civic groups' funding
for the project," she said.
Workshops will begin next spring and the tapes
will be produced and distributed in 1987 and 1988.
Workshops are tentatively scheduled to be held in
Chapel Hill and Wilmington; Charleston and
Columbia, S.C.; Knoxville, Tenn.; Roanoke and
Virginia Beach, Va.; and Washington, D.C.

You have no money and don't know
what to do. Before you sell blood or
beg on Franklin Street, stop by the
Student Part-Time Employment Ser
vice in the Student Union.
"The Student Part-Time Employ
ment Service is a resource center for
students looking for part-time or
temporary jobs and local employers,"
said Karen Rindge, director of SPTES.
"It's where students come to find jobs
and employers list their jobs. It's a free
SPTES has been operating about
four years and consists of two services:
one for part-time jobs and one for
temporary jobs, Rindge said.
"The temporary job service is the
Student Work Force," she said. "It's
different from the regular service in that
students list their names with us first,
and employers call in for students able
to work temporarily."
SPTES keeps a catalog in the office
so students looking for a part-time job
can come find one, Rindge said.
"We list a job description directory
with jobs listed in categories," she said.
"Employers list with us and then it's
up to the student to contact the
employer, whereas with a temporary job
the employer contacts the student."
SPTES had about 300 students
registered last year. About 50 students
got jobs. The success rate seems
distorted because of the record-keeping
system, Rindge said.
"Those (who get jobs) are the people
who use us as the only source," she said.
"They heard about the job through us
and they contacted the employer
through us. That doesn't count the
people who used other sources such as
This semester, 100 students have
registered with SPTES and 22 with the
Student Work Force. Of those, 18 have
been hired through SPTES.
SPTES recently was allocated $1,764
by the Student Governing Council since
it had not been funded through last
year's budget process, said Ryke Long
est, student body treasurer. Such an
allotment is unusual, he said.
Longest said SPTES would have
gotten the money had it gone through
the budget process last year.
"They did not ask for a great deal
of money," he said. "They are generally
stable and an important office-holding
organization. There's very little likeli
hood they 11 die. Students need jobs and
it's a great service to perform."
Rindge said the money was going
mostly for phone bills, mailing lists and
Marlene Lair, a junior from Tryon,
said she found a job last year through
"I wanted a babysitting job and most
newspaper ads required that you have
a car," she said. "I didn't have a car
and L needed something near campus.
It worked out real well."
Rindge said just about any student
could find a job through SPTES.
"Most of our jobs do not require any
previous skills," she said. "Some may
not be glamorous, but they are part
time and don't expect, specia! skills."
SPTES and the Student Work Force
are open from 1 4 p.m. Monday
through Thursday in Room 207-B,

say, 'I'm exhausted, I'm taking a week
off,' " he says. "You go down to Florida
for a week off with no work. Have you
ever seen the moon there? No. The
moon is always doing its job."
Warden has a job with Bill Kamp
Productions, a Raleigh firm that makes
commercials. On campus, he works
with Student Television, which nomi
nated him for Mr. UNC. Among other
things, Warden hosted a "Cuckoo
Game Show" for STV.
"He's very intelligent. He's not just
kooky," says STV Production Director
Shaun Wallace, a senior RTVMP
major from Greenville. "He's kind of
like a big teddy-bear kind of guy. I know
very few people who don't like him or
can't work with him."
Basically, people say, Warden is fun
to be near.
"If you're in a bad mood, hell always
put you in a good mood," says Chris
Scott, a sophomore international
studies major from Southern Pines.
Scott and Warden live on the same hall
Scott and Warden also lived on the
same hall in Manly dorm last year.
"For three weeks, I thought it was
all an act nobody could be that
outgoing," he says. "After that, I figured
nobody could put on an act for this
long. Bill's just naturally that outgoing."
Warden says he is as happy as he
appears. "I am very happy, but I'm just
happy mostly to be here, just to be alive
is such a thrill."
This is the key to happiness, he says.
"It's just a matter of simplifying things."
That, he says, and putting lots of
