VOLUME XLV NUMBER 3
Condominium construction hasn’t made a dent in the college
housing market, but it has made an impression. Three years ago,
many feared condos, especially condo conversions, would eat up
off-campus housing and cause rents in remaining units to sky
rocket. That hasn’t happened.
Lower interest rates and more housing starts have made con
versions a dead issue, but has aiso encouraged the construction
of new condo complexes near many major campuses. Ads for
condos abound in the student newspaper in Austin, Texas. Two
new condo projects aimed at students wiii open this fall in
Athens, GA, and 600 new condos and highrent apartments are
being buiit near the U. of Minnesota campus in the Twin Cities. In
these places and others, condos are a small but growing part of
an overall building boom.
Who’s buying these units? Most students don’t have the in
come. But parents, in a higher income tax bracket looking for a
tax break, do. Many buy a condo to recoup some of the money
spent on housing a child at college, while also providing the child
with a first-class place to live, says Dan Hallenbeck, U. of Georgia
The Phon-a-Thon, which started October 12, finished on
November 1. The school set a goal for 160,000 and wished to ex
ceed it. The money that they collect will go to the Operating Bud
get of St. Mary’s. As of October 26, they had obtained about ha
of their goal.
Each night St. Mary’s girls, alumnae, plus faculty and st
help make the calls. They succeed in making about 500 ca
night. By the end of the Phon-A-Thon they will have reached over
35 hundred alumni. .
Every week they give out a prize to the worker who
most calls or gets the most donations. The prizes, dona
area companys, include a sweater, turkey, or a dinner a
Barn, The big prize, given out the last night, at 10.00 p.
gym will be a color T.V. They feel this year’s Phon-A-Thon wi
a big success.

A New Mayor for Raleigh
By Suzannah Higby
On December 6, Avery Upchurch will take office as the new
Mayor of Raleigh. Upchurch was the Republican candidate in the
race for Mayor defeating Tony Jordan the Democratic candidate.
As Mayor Upchurch says he hopes to encourage the develop
ment of Raleigh to help the current residents. He says that,
“Raleigh is a strong community with low unemployment and
doesn’t have to take anyone who comes along.” He plans to be
selective about large business growth in the town. A main goal of
Upchurch’s is to revive the downtown section by building living
facilities and shopping areas and providing cultural events.
Another issue Upchurch would like to place emphasis on is up
dating the fire and police departments. These ideas have been
discussed for a while but he plans to take action.
The problem Upchurch feels is most important as he prepares
to take office is the protection of the water preserve and the area
around it. Water is the most precious resource and little has been
done to protect Raleigh’s supply, but Upchurch plans to see more
consideration put into this area.
