uxhere are a lot of people using
them," Wolfe said. "Unless you go at
a dead hour, youVe got to wait in line
an hour sometimes. It's not fun."
It's the long wait for machines at
the campus laundry sites that gives
Soaps a lot of their business, according
to Carey McCloskey, manager of the
Franklin Street laundrymat.
"It's a popular place with students,"
she said. "1 think people down here
just like to come in and maybe drink
a beer or whatever while they're doing
McCloskey said the majority of her
business comes from fraternities and
sororities in the vicinity. ttThe frats
don't have washers and dryers in the
houses, and it's too crowded on
campus, so they come down here," she
Roth said there are no plans to
increase the number of laundry sites
other than by one location in the new
Carmichael dorm. He said the Hous
ing Department must approve the
locations of the laundry rooms, and
that some dorms are physically incap
able of holding one.
"We would, with approval and if
it were a decent business venture, go
into other dorms," Roth said. On Old

In addition to coin-op machines,
University Laundry also provides a
finished laundry service, wash-dry-fold,
linen rentals and dry cleaning
service to students at six campus drop
off sites. All but the wash-dry-fold
items are brought to the main laundry
plant to be cleaned.
"The finished laundry service is the
second most used service," Roth said.

The University Laundry Service
makes about $125,000 worth of
quarters a year, according to John
Roth, manager of the service.
The service's 1 1 coin operated sites
on campus process approximately 5
million pounds of clothing, towels and
linens every year. In addition to
students' laundry, the service also
cleans for Memorial Hospital, the
Carolina Inn, the athletic and physical
education departments and some state
and federal agencies affiliated with
"The hospital is our biggest custo
mer," Roth said.Thcy're approxir
mately 50 percent of our total business
and most of our bulk work."
The service is self-supporting; it
receives no state funds or grants. All
of its finances are generated by
business, and this can necessitate price
increases, Roth said.
One such increase was the price of
a coin-op dryer, that went from 10
cents for 10 minutes to 25 cents for
15 minutes this year.
"It was done strictly as a business
type increase that was necessary
because there hadn't been one in a
while," Roth said. "We had increased
utility prices, increased benefits for
employees and increased, use by the
students. It's still the most reasonable
service in the area."
Many students agreed that prices
are reasonable and added that con
venience is a a major factor.
"Basically, it's fairly convenient,"
said Bruce Wolfe, a freshman physical
therapy major from Raleigh. "I can
just walk over there, and . . . (prices)
are higher outside."
Wolfe lives in Mangum dorm and
uses the machines in Joyner. This one
location, though, serves nine other

service of the university and stays

"We just try to stay more or less
on our own, but any decision regard

Student Affairs department," Roth
In spite of the convenience and the
reasonable prices that the service
offers, the all too typical problem
"It's still a nuisance," Wolfe said.
"I just dont like doing laundry."

The loss of more than half a million
dollars in federal-grant aid next year,
due to the passage of the Gramm
Rudman Act, will force many students
who normally would have relied on Pell
Grants or the work study program to
pay their tuition to find other means
of financing their education.
Paul Hemphill, president of Student
Aid Finders, a New Hampshire-based,
scholarship-matching service, offers
students a possible solution to the
"Practically all students can and do
qualify for student aid at any time of
the year, regardless of good grades or
financial need," he said.
According to Hemphill, 68,000 stu
dents from middle-income families will
be unable to attend college next year
due to the passage of Gramm-Rudman,
unless they can find private sources of
For a $39 fee, Student Aid Finders
will provide an applicant who has
submitted a data form a listing of at
least five sources the student qualifies
for, complete with names, addresses,
amounts and eligibility requirements.
"Ninety-six percent of our applicants
qualify for some type of scholarship,"
More than $135 million in aid went
unclaimed last year, largely because the
students who needed it didn't know
where to find it, he said.
Student Aid Finders is part of a
nation-wide service with computer
access to more than $4 billion in student
aid. It has 4,000 different sources which
were compiled over a 10-year period.
"There are some real odd-ball scho
larships out there," said Hemphill.
He gave the example of a school in
California that offers five $300 scho
larships to any student at UCLA at
Berkley who can prove they don't
smoke or drink.
Hemphill said he received an appli
cation from one high school senior who
put down bowling as one of her major
"We found a scholarship offered by
Coca Cola and NBC amounting to
$22,000," he said. "The only condition
was that the student would participate
in a semiannual bowling tournament,"
There is even a scholarship for
prostitutes based in Seattle, Wash.,
Hemphill said. It is funded by the fines
other prostitutes . who are caught
soliciting must pay.
The service processes 30,000 applica
tions annually, and "at least 50 percent
of those get actual aid money," he said.
Most of the requests for sources come
fron Louisiana. The service doesn't
advertise, except by word-of-mouth.
"We give students the tools to find
aid," Hemphill said, "but it's up to them
to go and get it. Their success is our
Stuart Bethune, associate director at
the UNC Financial Aid Office, said that
although "students may have to borrow
a bit more to stay in school," the office
was making every effort to insure that
qualified students could continue
Bethune said it was important for
students to realize that the information
needed for aid was available elsewhere
for free if the student was willing to
take the initiative.
"I have often wondered whether
scholarship services provide any more
information than the student can obtain
on his own," Bethune said.
Hemphill estimated the average
amount of aid found by his service was
$500 to $2,500 in renewable scholar
ships and funds.
"I would not want to be a freshman
in college now," he said. "There's no
light at the end of the tunnel for
students, and Congress is only going to
make things worse. It's scrambling
