Staff Writer - Fears of lost bus service around Chapel Hill and Carrboro were allayed by Congress's veto this summer of an administration prop osal to cut over $500,000 in aid to the area's public transportation. Earlier this summer, Chapel Hill Transit officials had been concerned that federal funding would be cut, .according to Alan Tobias, assistant manager of the Transit company. , Congress, however, blocked the proposal in a recent session, and no change to that budget is foreseen, Tobias said. , The presidential administration has tried for six years to rescind all or part of the $991,000 in subsidies .that make up one-third of Chapel , Hill's $3,000,000 transportation .budget, he said. Those efforts have been part of a nationwide campaign to cut .corners on the public transportation .budget, he said, and all districts with public transportation faced the threat of lost subsidies. A few municipalities have private transportation systems which make ,them ineligible for federally funded .subsidies. R.L. Banks, a Washington con sultant firm, had estimated that Chapel Hill Transit could have lost between $100,000 and $595,000, based on governmental figures. Funding for the bus system would have expired Sept. 30. The Transit had hired Banks to come up with a contingency plan outlining rate hikes, route reschedul ing and other necessary changes if the subsidies were cut. Although there is now no need for the plan, the town has increased the transportation tax by 1.5 cents to 7 cents per $100 of assessed property value. This will provide the bus system with a $140,000 surplus. Chapel Hill Town Manager David R. Taylor has said he hopes to raise tax rates enough over the next three years to become independent fron federal Vi,saBy ""4 i, numbers and 40 pictures depicting UNC events and reflections of campus life at UNC. "We issued a calendar last January that was nice, but not as nice and personalized as this one," said John Gorsuch, media planner for the UNC Student Stores. "The Student Affairs Division thought there was a need for a 'catch-all' sort of publication." Beginning last April, Gorsuch worked with co-editors David Foun tain, Mary Scholl and Mary Evans in the three-month production of the calender, which is modeled after a law school library issue the new copier system cards. Patrons insert a $1 bill into the machine and receive a card, which costs 50 cents; a 50 cent credit also is added to their account.

All money in the account will transfer from Csemesteto;semser:r x ' A space is provided on the back of the card for the bearer's name, which will help the printing depart ment return a lost card to its owner.

A similar proposal for a surplus fund was introduced by the Carrboro Board of Aldermen, but nothing has been set up yet. Had the subsidies been lost, Chapel Hill Transit could have drawn on subsidies unused by Durham in a joint $2.7 million Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Durham federal funding pool. k - 159 E.

To make copies, the card is inserted into a slot on the copy machine. The copier automatically deducts 6 12 cents from the account for each copy.

The members of the Class of 1990 had already begun their walk down that lonesome road Sunday night, when they heard the University Glee Club sing James Taylor's words at Freshman Convocation in Memorial Hall. Most of the 3,300 freshmen arrived Saturday and were greeted and moved in by over 450 upper classmen on the orientation staff. They also met the orientation coun selors who would guide them through their first four days at Carolina. At convocation Saturday, Chan cellor Christopher C. Fordham III welcomed the veterans of one night of college dorm life. "Well have a very good time together, I assure you," he said, telling the freshmen the fact that they're at UNC demonstrates their good judgment, talent, "sparkle of intellect" and good upbringing. Freshmen should take advantage of the many opportunities for per sonal growth in their years at Carolina, he said. Besides expanding their knowledge and understanding, freshmen should grow in the capacity to express themselves, in the culti vation of communication skills and in spirit or "the search for ultimate truth." Fordham added that students also need to learn "to deal with other cultures in this shrinking world." Provost Samuel R. Williamson talked about the academic side of Carolina in his convocation address, encouraging the freshmen to embark upon their great intellectual adven ture with enthusiasm. Williamson also warned students to obey University regulations. "This is your great-adventure," he said. "Don't lose it in your freshman year." copy would have doubled to 10 cents if coin-operated machines were used. It also takes less time to make copies, Wilson said. "You don't have to keep up with coins and you don't have to drop in a nickel everytime you make a copy," he said. "It's just a lot faster." Nine of the card-operated mac chines are located in the graduate library, five are in the undergraduate library and the law school library has four.

"Some of the court opinions were all originals. If we'd lost them we wouldVe been in big trouble." The new book will also help record keeping, Furr said, and make infor mation more readily accessible. "Court members . . . and other people needed better copies than what we could give them," she said. Furr said former Chief Justice Scott Norberg and current Chief Justice Maria Baxter were respon sible for getting the funding for the project. H M H H i ))i--y if I W i W ! . Szzzz lit v l V, v : '!. I ) He said UNC places a lot of stress on basic communication skills in an effort to help students communicate verbally, mathematically and through writing. The different perspective require ments allow students to realize the "enormous seas" of knowledge they can explore, Williamson said. That potential is complemented by the professors' ability to "probe and test and push" to find better solutions to scientific, mathematic, and phi losophical problems, he said. "We believe you will get a better education at Carolina than at any institution in this state, and it will rank among the best in the world," Williamson said.
