Slow sales of investment shares
and a lack of interest may force
the Rosemary Group developers
to revise finance plans for the
Rosemary Square project.
In a recent press release, the
Rosemary Group announced it
may have to consider other
options to finance the Rosemary
Developer Whit Morrow, a
spokesman for the Rosemary
Group, said funds for the devel
opment project were originally to
come from the sale of 188 invest
ment shares in The Chapel Hill
Inn, a proposed condominium
"Sales (of the units) were slow
and tedious," Morrow said. The
developers may be forced to
obtain a construction loan to
complete the project, he said.
"We have given the SEC (Secur
ities and Exchange Commission)
notice that we have suspended sale
of the units until another way of
financing has been chosen," Mor
row said. "Part of that will involve
discussion with the town in the
next couple of months."
Assistant Town Manager
Sonna Loewenthal said town
officials have not been informed
about the development group's
Town officials are waiting for
the Rosemary developers to
approach them with a new financ
ing proposal. Loewenthal said. It
is too early to tell how the officials
will react . she said.
Cammpus science fiction group
to publish collection1 of works
By JAMES COBLIN
The UNC Science Fiction Writers'
Group (SFWG) is planning to pub
lish an anthology of science fiction
and fantasy stories next fall, said Paul
Thompson, SFWG founder.
The group's members are publish
ing the anthology themselves "to
teach the members of the group about
writing, editing and choosing the
stories," Thompson said.
The SFWG has solicited contribu
tions from many well-known science
fiction writers. Two writers of
national acclaim who have agreed to
submit pieces are Fredrick Phol,
winner of the Hugo Award in 1978
for his book "Gateway," and John
Kessel, winner of the 1983 Nebula
Award for his novella "Another
Orphan." Thompson said.
SFWG has also circulated a flier

UNC could not financially main
tain a food service if the mandatory
plan is eliminated, said Tom Shetley,
director of auxiliary services. But if
- facilities are increased and the
revenue base broadened, the food
'service is certain to be more pros
perous, he said. When the financial
situation of food services is such that
the mandatory plan can be elimi
' hated, it should be, Shetley said.
'-' MaryAnn Farthing, associate pro
cessor of nutrition and a committee
member, presented an alternate
motion. Once consolidation has
-occurred and it has been proven that
(he $100 plan is not necessary for the
: profitablity of food services, then the
plan would be eliminated. The plan
should be re-evaluated after the first
' year of consolidation. Farthing said.
'-' The motion will be considered at
the next committee meeting on April

Any changes in the physical

months to be approved by the

The town could cancel the

Morrow said the financial
changes would not prevent the
development project from meeting
the construction deadline.

The length of the anthology will
depend on the amount and quality
of submissions. The group has
received more than 14 submissions
since January, Thompson said.
Writers whose submissions are
used in the anthology will not be paid
for their work, but their stories will
be copyrighted and they will receive
copies of the anthology.
The SFWG is . a . self-supporting
group that branched off from the
UNC Science Fiction Club. The
group was formed last fall to provide
an outlet and guidance for people
interested in writing science fiction,
"We are adjunct to the Science
Fiction Club, but membership is by
no means 100 percent overlapping,"

Lewis said student government was
also looking at ways to increase the
use of meal cards while eliminating
the mandatory plan.
One idea is having a food services
cashier at Woollen Gym during drop
add, Lewis said. Students could then
put money on the card while they also
pay for tuition, he said. It would
eliminate the inconvenience of having
to stand in a separate line at Lenoir
Hall, which deters many students
from using the card, Lewis said.
Rutledge Tufts, general manager of
Student Stores, said the University
was considering a student ID card
that has a magnetic stripe on the back
and can be used as a debit card.
Students could put money into
different accounts on the card, and
could use it at the book store,
cafeteria and library. Tufts said. The
card would be similar to the kinds
now used at Duke and N.C. State

The UNC Dispute Settlement
Center, a part of the Division of
Student Affairs, helps students
resolve conflicts between themselves
without going to court.
The center, a spin-off of the Chapel
Hill Dispute Settlement Center, was
started two years ago when Claire
Millar, director of the Chapel Hill
Dispute Settlement Center, went to
the housing department to talk about
mediation between students. Student
affairs administrators liked the idea
and formed a committee of profes
sors, students, administrators and
representatives from the Dispute
Center, Millar said.
The center has been inactive for the
past year, but the Student affairs
office is working to bring it back, said
Sharon Kerick, graduate student for
The English department and The
Cellar Door, a UNC student literary .
magazine, do not take science fiction
writing seriously, Thompson said.
To pay for the anthology, the
group has applied for a $5,500 grant
from the profits of the 1986 World
Science Fiction Convention. Because
the convention is non-profit, all of
the $90,000 in proceeds it received
were put in a charitable fund to
finance science fiction writing. The
fund has already given $30,000 to
other groups. v ''?
"When I came, to UNC, I was
interested in writing," said SFWG
member Elizabeth Wyrick. "When
Paul got the group together, I wanted
to take part to see what I could learn."
The anthology is a one-time endea
vor at this point, Thompson said. But
it is possible that it will be done again.
"If it is a success, there is nothing
to stop us from doing another
anthology," he said.
Writers who wish to submit a piece
for the anthology should turn it in
at the Wilson Library reception desk.

"Communication is very impor
tant, and getting people to sit down
and talk, deciding how they want to
solve the problem, is the function of
this great service," Millar said.
The students whom the center
helps are often roommates who are
having problems with matters like
phone bills, rent and utility payments,
said Dorothy Bernholtz, director of
Student Legal Services (SLS). Other,
problems which the center deals with
are love triangles and assault, cases
in which one student strikes another
student in anger, she said.
Lee Marx, assistant to the Dean
of Students, said that while many of
the cases are financially based con
flicts, the center deals with a wide
variety of problems.
Bernholtz said students who come
there seeking legal advice often are
referred to the Dispute Settlement
process because they thought they
would be unsuccessful.

About 15 trained mediators work
for the center. When working with
students, they make no judgments,
but instead help the students hear one
another and consider options and
solutions, Millar said.
Jackie Carr, a mediator for the
center, said, "Mediation is much
more fair than having a judge give
Another advantage to mediation is
that the same problems rarely occur
for the same people, which differs
from small claims court, Carr said.
Because the center has been inac
tive for a year, few people know about
the services it offers, Marx said.
"Awareness is the key to the
program, for this is a service for
students that students need to know
about," Marx said.
"It is unfortunate that this great
service has not received the publicity
that it deserves," Millar said.
