' Renovation of the Student Stores
continues despite a few frustrations
and misplaced offices, Rutledge
Tufts, Student Stores general man
ager, said Wednesday.
' The construction has relocated
offices, which has been hard on
employees, Tufts said.
' "One lady went out of town and
came back and found her office
moved," he said. "Some offices have
moved (because of construction), and
we don't know where they are."
Even though construction has
compressed the store's sales space
from a 10,000 square foot area into
a 4,000 square foot area, students said
they find little inconvenience.

of mess to find things," said John

.Students for the Advancement of
Race Relations (SARR), a Campus
Y, committee, will hold a training
session tonight for committee
members on how to conduct a race
The workshop will be held from
7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in room 208, the
Clifford Charles, counselor and
coordinator of minority programs at
the student development center, will
lead the workshop, which will not
only discuss how to conduct a good
seminar, but also examine how
individuals are doing on a personal
Once the SARR committee
members complete the training, the
students will conduct workshops in
the Union and will hold discussions
with fraternities, sororities, resident
assistants, residence halls and other
Lee Latimer, co-chairwoman of
SARR, said the workshop is the most
essential part of SARR's program.
The program will begin with personal
feelings and end with a planned
prescription on how to conduct these
workshops, she said.
"It is necessary that they (commit
tee members) be equipped with a
gqod working knowledge and self
knowledge, about attitudes and
i beliefs and prejudices," Charles said.
"You need to examine yourself before
interacting with the community."
;The objective of the workshop is
tor. teach the students how they as
p?ers can help fellow students
enhance interracial relationships,
"Students see themselves as insig
nificant when dealing with these
is?ues," he said. "When reduced in
equality, everybody suffers. It is an
unnecessary impediment in one's
growth and development.
"What is important is that the
students want to intervene with
prejudice. But, this workshop is a part
of a larger whole," he said. m
If racial incidents do not occur,
people think prejudice does not exist,
which is wrong, Charles said. "This
issue depends on the amount of
awareness," he said.
; SARR has sent letters to RAs
about possibly holding discussions in
the residence halls, Latimer said. In
addition, the Big Buddy program and
the Campus Y have requested discus
sions, she said.
. Other organizations, such as the
ftyjudice Reduction Group, have
hejd similar programs, Latimer said.
If has been such a rewarding expe
rience in the past by bridging com
munication gaps that SARR feels it
r an essential program for this
university, she said.
'The program will last approxi
mately two and a half hours and will
include a videotape called Racism
101, a documentary about racism on
college campuses. A discussion will
follow, Charles said.
Kelley Hughes, a senior from High
Point, said the construction's appear
ance bothered her. "It's not incon
venient, just ugly," she said.
"It's hard to get around," said Faye
Tardy, a sophomore from Lynch
burg, Va. "Everyone asks where the
Tufts agreed. "Some people have
wondered if the textbook area is eVen
open because it was hard to get to,"

area where sales may have been
affected by construction, Tufts said.
"Our sales are $100,000 or so
behind last year's," he said. Tufts said
another reason for the drop in sales
might be the opening of Pop's Tar
Heel Textbooks, located on the
corner of Franklin and Malette
However, the low sales figure is
insignificant because textbook sales
fluctuate, Tufts said. Construction
did not inconvenience most textbook
customers this semester because it
began in late September, after the fall
To make construction less incon
venient, Tufts said, signs have been
put up to direct people to different
areas. "When we close the center of
the store, we are going to try better
ways to re-route people," he said.
One option being considered is
painting different colored strips on
the floor. "Like Walt Disney World,
you follow the yellow brick road to
get to the textbooks," Tufts said.
The center of the store will prob
ably be closed within the next four
weeks, he said. To provide easier
access to areas in the store during that
time, an employee will stand at the
store's entrance to give directions.
The store is being renovated in four
phases. Construction is now in its
third phase, which costs $689,000, but
all phases will be completed by
August 1989, said Edward Willis,
construction administration director.
Officials had planned to complete
construction before spring semester,
but a new schedule created to accom
modate the fall book rush and to
finish asbestos removal pushed back
the projected completion date, Willis
Because the store will be renovated
in four phases, some areas, including
textbooks, will be completed by June.
Willis said despite the new sche
dule, construction will still be com
pleted in the same amount of time
as previously scheduled. No addi
tional costs will occur in the reno
vation, which will cost $1.2 million
