The Educational Foundation, or
Rams Club, donated a gift of $50,000 to
the UNC library system so the libraries
could hire enough student employees
to keep the library running at full ca
pacity during exams and summer
school, according to a press release
Larry Alford, assistant University
librarian for business and finance, said
that the library was not allowed to hire
new employees because of a hiring
freeze. The University issued a morato
rium on hiring on Feb. 20, 1990, as a
result of state budget cuts.
The library could not use state funds
to hire replacements for jobs vacated
by graduating students this spring be
cause of the hiring freeze, Alford said.
The foundation gift will replace state
hiring funds and allow the library to
maintain the number of students work
ing in the libraries.
David Taylor, head librarian at the
Undergraduate Library, said the total
number of jobs the libraries would need
to fill could not be determined until
after summer school registration.

Richard Cashwell, director of under
graduate admissions, has announced
his resignation, which will become
effective July 1.
Cashwell will be leaving UNC to fill
the position of director of college coun
seling at Flint Hill School, a private day
school in Fairfax County, Va.
"I've been .here for 26 years and a
part of me will always be here,"
Cashwell said. "But I've gotten the
opportunity to do what I like best, to get
a little more in depth with students. I'll
be in a brand new school in a brand new
situation, and there are just not many
chances to do that." . : '

assistant director of undergraduate
admissions in 1963 and has worked as
director of admissions since 1969.

The Jewish communities of Chapel
Hill and Durham have organized events
to commemorate victims of the Holo
caust, following a proclamation issued
last week by Chapel Hill Mayor Jon
athan Howes declaring April 22 to 29
the "Days of Remembrance of the
Victims of the Holocaust."
The proclamation was declared in
response to the U.S. Holocaust Memo
rial Council's (USHMC) attempts to
institutionalize an official remembrance
to the 6 million Jews who were victims
of the Holocaust.
The USHMC was created by a 1980
congressional resolution and consists
of 55 U.S. citizens, including five U.S.
senators and five U.S. representatives
who are appointed by the president,
said Lisa Price, assistant to Howes.
In the proclamation, Howes stated
the designation of the week was "in
memory of the victims of the Holocaust
and in the hope that , we will strive
always to overcome prejudice and in
humanity through vigilance, education
After the mayor's office received
mailings from USHMC suggesting the
formation of a proclamation, the office
sought information on the issue and
passed it on to local Jewish organiza
tions, Price said.
"We became sort of a clearinghouse

Before the donation, the library
would have had such a small staff dur
ing summer school that the University
would have been "barely able to keep it
open," Taylor said. Now, the library
also will be able to stay on full schedule
during summer school.
Moyer Smith, executive vice presi
dent of the Educational Foundation,
said the organization decided to donate
the funds to the library system because
of the system's importance to faculty
and students. Members of the founda
tion saw a need for the library donation,
Most funds raised by the foundation
are used for athletics because athletic
events are the main source of income

Several of the organizations re

Holocaust victims. Many of the events,
which are open to the public, occurred
last weekend at local Chapel Hill and
The particular date proclaimed by
Congress, April 22, 1990, was desig
nated according to the Jewish calendar,
said Dara Goldberg, a member of the
USHMC public affairs division.
The reason Holocaust Remembrance
Day was set for this date is because it
follows the 27th day of the month of
Nissan, which usually falls in the middle
or latter part of April, Goldberg said.
This day never falls on a Sabbath or
another Jewish holiday, which was part
of the criteria used when choosing the
date, she said.
The council had so many significant
dates to choose from, it wanted to find
one significant date to commemorate
the overall experience, Goldberg said.

Warsaw Ghetto uprising, is one date

The jobs at the libraray include shelv

and providing general services to stu
dents and others using the library.
Signs advertising the jobs are posted
near the circulation desk at the Under
graduate Library, Taylor said.
Alford said students' starting sala

will receive pay increases as they gain
experience. The pay increases have not
been affected by the budget crunch, he

A search committee has been organ

admissions soon, O'Connor said.

75,000 course paks printed each se

campus recycling coordinator.
"We started this program last semes

more successful this semester," she said.
"We are doing a lot more advertising,
and TARP members are going to go

Mark Chilton, co-chairman for
TARP, said last month ORS collected
30 tons of paper. "With the no-fee
contract that the University has with
ORS, we saved $450 in the collection
of those 30 tons," he said.
Students can put their course paks in
the collection bins from April 28 to
May 9. The bins are at 14 locations on
and off campus, Sherman-Huntoon said.
"We're hoping that many of the stu
dents will recycle their course paks
during the exam period."
Students can recycle other products
in the bins. "In addition to collecting
course paks in these bins, we're taking
any type of white paper," Sherman

"We charge a half cent more per

and two cents more for other recycled

down 15 (percent) to 20 percent more,
we hope to charge the same price for

Students who want to sell their course
