Students can buy lobbying for
preschool and day-care programs
with their meal cards this week.
Tables will be set up in Lenoir and
Chase Halls Tuesday through Thurs
day for students who want to donate
cash or money from their meal cards
to the North Carolina Child Care and
Neglect Project, a new student
organization formed to lobby the
state legislature for increased spend
ing on preschool and day-care
Over 40 students are involved in
the project, which is sponsored by the
National Student Movement and the
Campus Y, said Joel Segal, a third
year law student and a coordinator
of the project.
The money raised will go toward
the mailing, telephone, copying and
transportation costs necessary to
lobby the legislature, Segal said.

The UNC Department of Trans
portation and Parking Services has
begun accepting preregistration
applications for 1988-89 parking
spaces from campus residents and
students who live outside a two-mile
radius of the Bell Tower.
The department will accept appli
cations until May 13.
Kathy Haines, parking administra
tion supervisor, estimated that the
department will receive about 3,000
applications for the 2,740 spaces
available to students. About one
third of those spaces will be in the
newly consolidated F lot surrounding
the Smith Center and in the P lot
on Airport Road.

According to Haines, the date an
application is submitted has no
bearing on whether the student
receives a permit. Initially, spaces are
allotted to students according to class
standing, and then are assigned
randomly within each class. Regis
trars try to maintain a balanced ratio
between residents and commuters
within each class.
"Grads have priority," Haines said.
"There's a certain number of grad
residents versus grad commuters."

The UNC Physical Plant needs an
additional $11 million each year for
the next 10 years to eliminate the
backlog of campus repair and ren
ovation projects, according to a 1987
Physical Plant report.
In December 1986, the cost of the
backlog was estimated at $56.5
million, according to the 1987 facil
ities maintenance management
report. The report was published by
the Physical Plant, which is in charge
of campus maintenance. The study
was conducted in 1985 and updated
The backlog is comprised of build
ing repairs and renovations, replace
ments and improvements to utility
systems, repairs to roads and parking
lots and the removal of handicap
barriers, the report stated.
"Deteriorating facilities adversely
affect the entire structure of the
University," the report stated. "This

Matt Mlekush, associate director
of buildings and grounds, said the
purpose of the study was to inform
University officials about the serious
ness of the situation. "Hey, we've got
a big problem, and we need funds
to fix it," Mlekush said.
The report suggested an annual
commitment of $1 1 million in capital
improvement funding for the next 10
years to reduce the backlog.
"I don't think anybody's going to
give us $11 million," Mlekush said.
"It's an astronomical amount, but we
need to alert people to the magnitude
of the problem."

best public universities in the country,

The Ackland Art Museum's
15,000-piece collection has been
moved to temporary quarters in
preparation for renovations that are
scheduled to begin this month, Ray
Williams, curator of education, said
The move, which has been in
progress since last fall, was completed
last week. Most of the Ackland's
works are in storage in Wilson
Library, and others are in Raleigh or
Washington for cleaning and preser
vation treatment, Williams said.
Some pieces are on display in muse
ums around the country.
After its renovation, Ackland's
exterior will look the same, but the
interior will be gutted and then
rearranged, Williams said. Exhibition
space will nearly double upon
Workers will convert classrooms in
the Ackland building to galleries and
will overhaul the lighting and climate
control systems, Williams said.
Asbestos removal is also scheduled.
"It's a 30-year-old building, and it
looks it," Williams said. "The reno
vations will make the space more
inviting and a better place to display
The museum will reopen in the
spring of 1990.
Many pieces required specially
constructed crates, and the N.C.
Museum of Art in Raleigh loaned
Ackland a special climate-controlled
van for the move, Williams said.
"It's very much a custom-designed
type thing," he said. "Individual
works of art have to be considered.
