Committee aenimow once:

By JENNIFER PILLA
Funding for the William R. Davie
and Chancellor's Scholarships will be
cut in half, the Committee on Scholar
ships, Awards and Student Aid an
nounced Friday in its annual report to
the Faculty Council.
Committee chairman H. Craig Mel
chert said with the loss of revenue due
to renovations and funding decisions at
the Student Stores, the University would
offer less than half the number of Davie
and Chancellor's Scholarships and
would make a modest 3 percent in
crease in funding for need-based schol
arships. "It is unlikely that there will be suf
ficient support for need-based scholar
ships or for the creation of new merit

The number of Davie Scholarships,
which are traditionally awarded to 25
academically gifted freshmen each year,
will be reduced to 12. The number of
participants in the Chancellor's Schol
arship program, which was begun by
former Chancellor Christopher
Fordham to reward 25 minority stu
dents of high academic achievement,
will also be reduced to 12.
Council members discussed receiv

"I don't think it's a question of the

Hardin to receive financial aid suggestions
By CHRIS HELMS
The Financial Aid Task Force
(FATF) will submit its recommenda
tions for improving student aid at
UNC to Chancellor Paul Hardin
Wednesday, according to Student
Body President Brjen Lewis, creator
of the task force.
The report advocates increasing
the staff of the Office of Scholarships
and Financial Aid, improving the
work-study program and setting up a
new student assistance fund, among
other proposals, Lewis said.
Lewis will fully explain the report
today at noon in a Pit forum. "It's
another venue for letting people know
what we're doing."

A joint student-housing department
committee is still exploring ways to
conserve energy and bring down rising
utility costs at UNC, according to Larry
Hicks, committee chairman and asso

The committee is now comparing
how energy is used here at UNC and at
other universities across the country to
find the best ways to conserve energy,
Hicks said. "We're reviewing what
other universities are doing in energy
conservation and trying to see if we can
implement some of their programs.
Also, we've called Duke Power to get
ideas and pamphlets on energy conser

Alcohol warning labels

dangers of alcohol consumption.

and Financial Aid, Lewis said. The
report advocates adding one clerical
assistant for the Guaranteed Student
Loan Program, one application proces
sor and one staff counselor, he said.
Eleanor Morris, director of the of
fice and a member of the FATF, said
she supported that recommendation. 'T
don't want to be greedy, but we need a
clerical assistant. Over the next year,
we'd like a couple more."
Handling the Guaranteed Student
Loan Program is too much work for the
one staff member now responsible for
interviewing and certification required
by federal regulations, Morris said. "If
we don't have a clerical assistant, we
can't fulfill our obligations to students
and the federal government."

The utility costs can be reduced by
student consciousness of how to con

water pipes instead of air conditioners
to cool off rooms and using double

student assistance fund drawn from a

said. The fund would support a need
