Dormitory rent will increase about six percent next
semester, administrators in the University Housing
Department said Thursday.
-Larry Hicks, business manager for University Housing,
said the rent increase was because of the effects of inflation
on the department's operating costs, which include salaries,
utilities and payment of the debt retirement on the Katherine
J. Carmichael residence hall.
"In the past, the inflation has been real high, and the
(rent) increases didn't keep up with it," Hicks said. "...
(The Housing Department) was playing catch up. We're only
keeping up with inflation now."
The inflation rate through October 1985 was 3.2 percent,
almost half the amount of the rent increase. The unofficial
prediction for 1986 inflation, according to the Blue Chip
Financial Forecast, is 3.6 percent for the first quarter and
goes no higher than 4.2 percent for the fourth quarter.
In addition to the general rent increase, several dorms'
facilities have been upgraded, putting them in a higher rate
bracket and eliminating the need for a third rate classification,
said Jan Dennis, assistant to the director of University
Under the new rate a double room in group one dorms,
which include the upgraded Grimes, Old East, Old West
and Ruffin, will cost $612.25. This is an increase of $69.25
for the four upgraded dorms.
Other dorms in group one are: Alexander, Avery, Aycock,
Connor, Ehringhaus, Everett, Hinton James, Joyner, Lewis,
Mangum, Manly, Morrison, Parker, Teague, Whitehead and
Winston. These dorms' rents will increase $34.25.
Rates in Craige, also a group one dorm, will be $652.50,
an increase of $74.50 for undergraduates and $36.50 for
Alderman, Cobb, Graham, Kenan, Mclver, Spencer and
Stacy, group two dorms, will be rented at $67.50 per semester,
an increase of $37.50.
"Basically, based on the history of the Housing
Department, the rent increases may not be that significant,"
Dennis said. "In the past, room rates were not consistent
with inflation. The Housing Department has had a hard
time keeping up with increasing costs."
Rates for Carmichael, due to open next year, have not
been decided. The rates are expected to be higher than other
dorms, according to the Hallways and Highrises booklet,
which will be available Monday.
Financial aid recipients choosing to live in Carmichael
will probably not receive additional funds to cover this cost.
Students living in other dorms who receive financial aid
will receive more money to cover the cost of the rent increases,
said Tim Cobb, president of Residence Hall Association.
The rates for Carmichael dorm and the requests of special
interest groups who want to live in Carmichael will be decided
in the next two weeks, Dennis said. Assignments, like other
dorms, will be random.
Cobb said the cost increase was "bearable".
"The Department of Housing is faced with inflation, not
great inflation, but inflation on the order of four to six
percent," he said. "The Department of Housing must get
this solely from the rent. They have to be self-sufficient.
"There was a time when, two years back to back, there
was an 18 percent increase which was three or four times
the inflation. That wasn't understandable.
"We, as students, are kind of used to prices increasing.
Students, however, are educated enough to compare living
on campus to the cost of living off campus. The Department
of Housing should be careful not to price themselves out
of the market," Cobb said.

ms to bid on expkfiiag AIR A omtmct
Students will learn whether ARA will continue to be the
University's food service in May, but University adminis
trators will not decide whether to increase the meal plan
fee until the summer.
The University will be taking bids for a new food service
contract later this semester, since ARA's contract ended this
"The bidding won't start for a couple of months," said
James O. Cansler, associate vice chancellor for student affairs.
"There will be an active process this spring to determine
the best qualified service for the next three years."
Regardless of the food service company on campus,
students will still have to buy a meal plan, Student Body
President Patricia Wallace said. But it is uncertain whether
future meal plans will cost $100.
According to the UNC Board of Tmstees resolution that
implemented the meal plan, if Chase Hall, the food service
facility on South Campus, continues to operate at a loss,
the meal plan can be increased in $25 increments per year.
If after the increases, Chase continues to lose money, the
University can implement a full room and board plan similar
to the one in Granville Towers for the whole campus, the
Chase has been operating for only one semester, so a yearly
operating report will not be available until June or July.
Charles Antle, associate vice chancellor of business, said
he probably would not receive Chase's operating report from
the fall semester until the end of January. But he said ARA
probably experienced some loss.
"I think sales on the whole campus are up," Antle said,
"and I think ARA is generally pleased about how things
at Chase are doing overall." He added that Chase had good
and bad days.
If Chase still were not breaking even by the summer, Antle
said, any increases probably would not go into effect until
the year 1987-88.
Although a higher meal plan fee is possible, Antle said
UNC had never had a traditional room and board plan and
probably never would.
"I'd really be surprised if the University appproved a full
scale room and board plan," Antle said. "I think that is
something much against student attitudes. Students and
parents who want . . . (a room and board plan) have the
opfion of Granville Towers."
But Fetzer Mills, a senior international studies major from
Wadesboro, said he had no doubt the meal plan would
increase and that the University eventually would have a
full room and board plan. Mills last year co-authored a
Student Government report, alleging that the University did
not adequately consider student input when deciding whether
to implement the mandatory meal plan.
"I think it was the intention of the administration from
the beginning to implement a full-scale room and board plan
ranging from $400 to $600," Mills said. "They left too many
loopholes in all of the documents where they could boost
the meal plan up.
"I think the $100 meal plan was implemented as a foot-in-the-door
ploy by the administration," Mills said.
Mills said he thought the fact that the plan was developed
during the summer when most students were away from
campus was evidence that the University planned to have
such a plan with or without student support.
"Students have never had any input in the meal plan in
the first place," Mills said, "and I don't think they will have
any in the future."
Antle disagreed. "The real impetus . . . came from the
students," he said. "They told us, and their parents told us
that they wanted a better food service and wanted changes."
Student dissatisfaction was the crucial reason behind the
University's change to ARA in 1980, too, Antle said.
All students will have an opportunity" -to voice their
satisfaction or dissatisfaction with ARA in a referendum
to be held during campus elections in February.
Antle said that although he was very interested in the
outcome of the referendum, it would not be a deciding factor
when reviewing ARA's bid.
Such a referendum would be unfair, he said, because ARA
has really not had a fair chance at the University. Chase
Hall just opened in the fall, some of the equipment has not
worked properly and ARA recently had a turnover in
management, he said. In addition, ARA service was
interrupted during renovations of campus food service
facilities, he said.
ARA has not been able to operate consistently since it
came here, Antle said. "If I was a student, and someone
asked me whether I liked ARA, I would be confused.
"... (ARA is) still trying to break new ground," he said.
Antle said there could be some problems with the validity
of the February referendum.
There could be a low turnout, the students could be biased
against ARA from the beginning and the students have not
seen the other bids yet, he said.
"I think ARA honestly wants to stay here," Antle said,
"and I think it is going to give us a good proposal. 1 also
think there are going to be a lot of other good proposals."
Bidding is "a long, drawn-out process," Antle said. First
he, his staff and administrators in the Division of Student
Affairs have to develop a request for a proposal, according
to the intructions of the state purchasing contract. This
document will be reviewed by the Food Service Advisory
Committee which is composed of faculty, staff and students.
If the state approves of the request, it will send the
University a food service bid list with 40 to 50 names of
state and national food service companies. Antle said the
University would probably send out bid requests to these
companies in late February.
A lot of those companies will not bid, Antle said.
A conference will be held in February or early March

OK kids, today's show is all about
the number "1".
First lesson: Saturday's North
Carolina-Duke basketball game will be
Game No. 1 at the Student Activities
Second lesson: the winner of Satur
day's game will be tied for No. 1 in the
Third lesson: the game will narrow
the number of unbeaten teams in the
nation to one and will obviously
determine which is the No. 1 team in
the country after No. 2 Michigan's 73
63 loss to Minnesota Thursday night.
Simply put, the showdown between
No. 1 North Carolina (17-0, 3-0 in the
ACC) and No. 3 Duke (16-0, 4-0)
Saturday afternoon at 1:30 p.m.
(WRAL-TV Ch.5, ESPN) for the
bragging rights to Route 15-501 and a
whole lot more, is the most important
college basketball game so far this
season. It is the kind of matchup which
speaks for itself.
What a marquee for the christening
of the SAC. The Game will showcase
the ACC's second- and third-leading
scorers, Brad Daugherty and Johnny
Dawkins respectively, two rookie
headliners, Jeff Lebo and Danny Ferry,
and the conference's top two pressure
defenses according to turnover margin.
Duke boasts what ESPN color man
Dick Vitale calls, "the finest backcourt
duo in the nation." (But who really cares
what Dick Vitale thinks anyway).
Johnny Dawkins and Tommy Amaker
certainly complement each other as well
as any pair in the country. Dawkins is
a scorer, whether bombing from the
perimeter or filling the lane on the fast
break, he can be counted on for his 19
points a game. They broke the point
guard mold after Tommy Amaker was
cast. He is the quarterback and an
occasional threat from the outside.
If Duke has the best guard duo in
basketball. North Carolina certainly has
the best backcourt trio. Kenny Smith,
Steve Hale and Jeff Lebo can all hit
the 18-foot jumper, run the break, and
terrorize an opposing offense with the
Dean Smith style scramble defense.
Closer to the rim, Duke's big men
include last week's ACC Player of the
Week, Mark Alarie (fifth in the ACC
in scoring at 17 ppg), the Blue Devils'
leading rebounder, Danny Ferry (6.9
per game), and swingman David
Duke's trees will be out to stop UNC's
redwood Brad Daugherty, who leads
the world in field goal percentage and
the Tar Heels in scoring and
To determine the teams' game plans
for Super Saturday, one must look only
as far as last year's two meetings. In
a mid-season clash at Carmichael
Auditorium, Duke demolished UNC
93-77 with sizzling shooting from the
perimeter and a fast break that had the
Tar Heels looking over their shoulders
all game long.
The second meeting in Durham was
the final game of the regular season and
a battle for a share of the ACC
Championship. North Carolina
pounded the ball inside over a smaller
Duke team to Daugherty, Joe Wolf and
Warren Martin. Duke's shooting from
the perimeter was less than pinpoint and
it paid the price. UNC won 78-68.
Rest assured UNC and Duke, who
will sport much the same artillery as
last year,, remember well how they beat
If the Tar Heels simply had Duke
to worry about, this weekend would
only be huge, but Katy bar the door,
UNC plays again on Sunday afternoon.
North Carolina will make a pilgrim
age to the Mecca to play Marquette in
Milwaukee (2:30 p.m. WRAL-TV Ch.
5). The Warriors (10-4) are led by 6
6 senior forward Kerry Trotter, who
scores 15.1 points per game, and David
Boone, who tops the team in scoring
( 1 5.9) and rebounding with 1 0 per game.

you say "Barnburner at the Dean
Dome?" I knew you could.

Students spending Friday night on the bricks as they camp out for Duke tickets
get to bypass
By TERESA KRIEGSMAN
Mike Farrell, a sophomore business major from Mt.
Pleasant, S.C., put his survival bundle on the porch of
Carmichael Auditorium last Thursday afternoon to await
last Saturday's basketball ticket distribution for the UNC
Georgia Tech game.
As Farrell made his way through the doors of
Carmichael Saturday morning, Richie Milligan, a junior
biology major and Tar Heel defensive back from
Fayetteville, slept. Milligan said he waited 20 minutes
last Friday morning to pick up his tickets for the Georgia
Tech and Notre Dame games.
Getting tickets at early distribution is a privilege
Milligan and all other varsity lettermen receive from the
Monogram Club, an organization of lettermen which has
access to basketball tickets for its members.
Varsity athletes are allowed to pick up their tickets
between 8:30 a.m. and noon on Friday mornings before
the regular weekend distribution. Ken Brown, director
of ticket operations, said the tickets that are not picked
up are given out at regular distribution. The athletes
receive lower level seats near the basketball goal, he said.
Brown said early distribution is "a little perk we (the
Athletic Association) try to give the athletes." It helps
athletes who could not be at regular distribution because
they were representing UNC at an athletic event, he said.
Farrell said he agreed with early distribution for athletes
who must be away at events during regular distribution,
but he said he thought other athletes should come to
"It's their choice to be athletes," Farrell said. "That's
one of their sacrifices."
Milligan said he thought early distribution was "very
"1 know the athletes are the ones that have to do the
work," he said. "And not just in one season. We work
all year around."
Carolina Athletic Association President Mark Pavao
said varsity athletes had "a tremendous time commitment
to the University," and early distribution was their
Because last Friday, for the first time, all Monogram
Club tickets were claimed, Pavao and Monogram Club
President Alisa Murray met with Brown Wednesday to
discuss the possibility of reserving more tickets for club
members. Pavao said the number of tickets should liae
