Chapel Hill, North Carolina

It is felt in the thermo-controlled
air of new condominiums; seen in
the construction on nearly every
road in town; suggested by the
pinstripes of the guy in front of you

It Chapel Hill is changing
its image and becoming a metropolis.
The population now stands at
about 39,000 and is increasing
rapidly. By 2025, Chapel Hill pop
ulation will have risen to between
72,000 and 90,000, Chapel Hill

It is said that the good teams win
in the face of adversity. Last night
at Carmichael Auditorium, the fifth
ranked UNC wrestling team over

The final score of 30-1 2 disguises
the fact that it was not an easy win
for the Tar Heels. They needed every
bit of talent they could muster for
the victory that brought their record
to 11-4. Consider the following
Obstacle No. 1: Two of North
Carolina's ACC wrestling cham
pions from 1986, Al Palacio and
Lenny Bernstein, had the flu and
were questionable Monday morning.
Obstacle No. 2: UNC's Chip
McArdle had to face Marc Sodano,
the nation's third-ranked wrestler, in
the match at 126.
Obstacle No. 3: The Tar Heels'
Rob Koll, the country's top-ranked
performer at 1 58, never even got to
the opportunity to wrestle.
Obstacle No. 4: UNC lost two of
the last three matches on the evening.
As for the first drawback, Palacio
and Bernstein both decided to ignore
sinus congestion and concentrate on
takedowns as each pulled out vic
tories. Palacio, the nation's top-rated
wrestler in the 118-lb. class, easily
defeated State's David Cummings,
8-2. But Bernstein had a tougher
Monday morning, Bernstein told
UNC coach Bill Lam that he didn't
feel he would be able to lose the five
pounds necessary to compete at 142.
Lam told him to give it a try, but
he wouldn't force him to compete.
Bernstein made the weight limit,
but then had to face lOth-ranked Joe
Cesari. It was a close match through

Worley begins campaign
in CAA president race
By KIMBERLY EDENS
Denny Worley, a junior econom
ics major from Canton, has
announced his candidacy for Carol
ina Athletic Association (CAA)
Worley said he doesn't think there
is a just a single purpose of the CAA.
"We're there to serve the purpose of
students concerned with varsity
athletics, as well as 'weekend athletes'
those concerned with intramural
and club sports," he said.
Homecoming has come a long
way in the last two years, Worley
said. "I want more student involve
ment by using different incentives,
like better prizes and more recog
nition of winners, as well as block
seating in the card section at the next
home game for winners of the float
competition," he said.

percent of all jobs in Chapel Hill;
retail wholesale, 7.18 percent; high

The planning board has projected
that service agencies will continue to

workers in town, with office jobs
increasing and the other jobs
decreasing a small amount.

Chapel Hill's annual growth rate of
two percent. Most residents are
between 15 and 39 years old.
"Given the trends, we're having a
marked increase in working-class
yuppies and middle-management
individuals in their late 40s and 50s,"
said Arthur Jackson, a long-range
planner for the planning board.
The majority are coming from
Michigan, Ohio . and New York,
from both larger towns and those

Carrboro Chamber of Commerce.
Although the whole 15-39 age
bracket is growing, those between 18

lack of young professionals (work

part that will grow as the community
matures," Van Ness said.
Balancing types of growth
Travelers through Chapel Hill can
easily see residential development.
In 1962, residences covered about
36.1 percent of all developed land
and far surpassed, by a ratio of 1 1
to I, retail and industrial buildings
which occupied only 3. 1 percent.
By 1984, residential development
had increased to almost 50 percent,
but retail and industrial development
had only increased by less than one
percent, to 3.7 percent.

The $96 million price tag of what
one UNC official calls "the Univer
sity's most significant construction
project ever" dwarfs even the $33.8
million spent to build the Smith
Center and itH heat up much more
than 21,444 basketball fans.
Replacement of UNC's existing
power plant located off Cameron
Avenue will begin in 1988,
according to Claude E. "Gene"
Swecker, associate vice chancellor of
"This is the biggest project we've
ever undertaken," Swecker said
Monday. "Before this, the biggest
was the Smith Center, which was just
completed last year."
The four 40- to 50-year-old boilers
in the plant will be replaced by two
efficient boilers, and a bigger elec
tricity generator will be installed, he
The project was approved by the
state legislature in 1985, he said.
Construction should be finished
by 1991, Swecker said. When the
boilers begin operating in the mid
1990s, the plant will generate more
electricity, he said, but Duke Power
Co. will continue supplying most of
the campus' electrical power.
"The significant portion of the
electricity comes from Duke Power,
and that won't change now or in the
future," said Physical Plant Director
Herbert Paul. "Well be able to
generate more electricity than we do
now." But Paul said the plant's
purpose is not to generate electricity
so less of Duke Power's electricity
is used. The extra power will help
balance the energy flow for the
Paul said the reconstruction is
needed for three reasons:
because it could be both convenient
and responsive to student's needs. He
would also examine the feasibility of
a "co-op program," to combat
decreases in student aid, he said.
Students would be placed in jobs
relevant to their majors for a semes
ter and they could use these earnings
for the next school semester.
Campus pride is another issue Hill
said he would like to address.
"Students should be interested in not
only that the basketball or lacrosse
team is number one, but in making
others aware in how good the
educational opportunities are," Hill
said. "Pride needs to be here before
it can spread."
Minority recruitment and the
recruitment of graduate students
would be easier if people outside the

said he thinks Chapel Hill is growing
in a healthy manner.
"The unemployment rate has
virtually remained the same as it has
been," he said. "Jobs are created to

Two thousand new jobs evolve

But the town will reevaluate its
employment situation as it grows.
"We're looking to see if what we
are doing is creating well-paying jobs
for the community," he said.

The plant is old, and "bits and
pieces" of it have deteriorated,
making the plant less efficient.
B As the number and square
footage of buildings on campus
increase, the plant would eventually
be unable to meet the University's
heating and electrical needs.

This time next year, Univer

a new, $1.2 million building on
South Campus, if construction
is finished on schedule, UNC
officials said Monday.
The building to be built
between the South Campus
water tower and Morrison Res

50 University police employees,
who are now divided between
offices on Franklin Street and
in the Campus Y building.
