Next year's scheduled renovation of
Graham Residence Hall will almost
definitely be delayed until at least 1 99 1
and possibly as long as four years,
housing officials said Monday.
"We haven't made a final decision,"
Housing Director Wayne Kuncl said.
"We'll definitely have a decision by
the end of next month. We're still
examining our options. But it is likely
that Graham will be delayed."
The potential for the delay has been
created by increases in steam and elec
tricity rates, Kuncl said. The housing
department learned of the increases
too late to raise rental rates this year
and had to absorb the cost of the in
creases. This lowered the amount of
funds the housing department had
reserved for renovations, he said.

"The concept of the minor will be

but there are a lot of gates to go through
to get it (minor)," she said.
Cell said the adminstrative board
would meet in December to discuss the
idea of the minor and might vote on

increase in utility rates, Kuncl said.

because the residence hall obviously

Initially, the housing department
planned to pay for the renovations from
its own funds, but other possibilities
are now being considered, Kuncl said.
"We're looking at the option of
borrowing money," he said. "That way
we could spread the cost over a longer
period of time."
If the housing department decides to
finance the renovations, it may be able
to do more than one residence hall per

Residents and property owners pre

during a public hearing concerning the
proposed historic district in the area of
West Cameron and McCauley streets.
The district would include several
homes and fraternities, one sorority,
the Carolina Inn and the UNC power
Fraternity alumni and representa

posed historic area.
Henry Clark, representing S igma Nu

houses in the area needed money for
major renovations. He said alumni
would give more generously if their
contributions were tax deductible.
If the district is approved, all dona
