Mike Sullivan, Ehringhaus Resi Group raises money for day care lobby By MARK SHAVER Staff Writer 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 programs. 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. Parking applications available for next fall By ROBIN CURTIS Staff Writer 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.

He asked the Residence Hall Association (RHA) to look into the problem. This problem is not new to the University, and it is time that action is taken, Sullivan said. "This has happened for several years and the University has done "If we want kids to drop out, if we want families to fall apart, then let's not do it," he said. "In the m we've lost our sense of community. Where has it gone? We have to get it back. Students have turned into yuppies." Preschool programs help break the cycle of poverty, Segal said. "If children do not have preschool by three or four, by age five it is too late for these kids to ever catch up," he said. "There is a crisis right now in child care. The crisis is that we're throwing our children away." Preschool develops children's school and social skills, Segal said. Children learn how to count, use scissors, hold pencils and identify colors and shapes, among other things. Children who have been in pre school programs are less likely to See LOBBY page 4 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." When filing applications, students must present both student identifica tion and registration cards, she said.

"Unless measures are taken to prevent cars from being damaged, the University is being negligent." Jimmy Randolph, RHA president, said he has talked with Student Body President Kevin Martin and Caro lina Athletic Association President Carol Geer about the situation, and they are looking into it.

Plhyical PDaumt ow odd report ay By BARBARA LINN Staff Writer 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 in 1987. 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 includes the University's mission of for aufo aware of the problem and has talked to Gene Swecker, associate vice chancellor of facilities management. "Since the problem has been brought to my attention, I have spoken with Gene Swecker about the possibility of putting up a net over the Ehringhaus baseball field," Hool ahan said.

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." Richard Moll, in his book, "The Public Ivys," ranks UNC one of the best public universities in the country, but also mentions the need for greater maintenance. "The saddest aspect of See FUNDS page 6 cflamase no definite decisions have been made."

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 completion. 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 art." 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. The move was very methodical and carefully planned." The works were inventoried and packed before they were moved, Williams said. Williams said it was discouraging See MOVE page 2
