Of the $303,725 projected profits,
$231,600 will probably go to scholarships
and grants. The remainder of the money
will probably be spent on renovations of
campus snack bars, an access system
inventory control for Student Stores and
for working capital to provide inventories
for the coming year.
Steve LaTour, student member of the
committee, said he would bike to see
"undergraduate need-based scholarships
increased and .athletic grants-in-aid
reduced." - -

scholarships is $10,000 more than this

Y-building, Avery snackbar and Hinton
James snackbar consist mostly of
converting to self-service to reduce labor
"All of this investment would be
recovered in at least one and one-quarter,
as a result of labor cost reduction," said
Shetley. He added that the full-time sales
clerks would probably find employment
in some other University unit.
"Conversion to self-service is great
from the student's point of view,"
Labor cost reductions accounted for a
large part of the increased profits from
Student Stores. Shetley explained this
was done through automation and
streamlining sales clerks necessities.
"Student labor has proved largely
uneconomical- and unreliable,
commented Shetley in response to. a.,
question from LaTour about possible
student employment. "It is especially
unreliable in the .springtime," he added.

Arogance went through their rock performance.
The music could be heard around the shops on Franklin

body, Thursday signed the budget passed
by Student Legislature earlier this week.

reservations." He hopes the new

I "I am not at all pleased with the
budget as it stands," Stallings said, "but I
have great faith and confidence in the

The Chaple Hill Board of Aldermen granted permission
Monday to the Peace Coalition to hold the dance in the
The Peace Coalition had petitioned the aldermen for
permission to hold the dance from 8 to 11 p.m. on Henderson
Street, between Franklin and Rosemary Streets.
However, the aldermen limited the location for "many
different reasons," said, Andy Little, assistant to Mayor
The major objection according to Little was that there is
proposed construction on Henderson Street. For this reason,
the city discourages night-time activity on the street until
construction plans are completed.

John Temple, assistant vice-chancellor
of business, told the members of the
Residence College Federation (RCF)
Wednesday a total investigation of the
Physical Plant would be unfeasible.
Temple said since the Physical Plant
employed 700 people responsible for
seven million feet of floor space, he
doesn't "think two or three people could
come in and spend three .days ap4.4iL
Estimating that a thorough study
would cost about $25,000, Temple said a
shallow analysis would not yield any
Bob Kepner, director of the Office of
Residence Life, suggested that RCF
; should investigate the Office of Residence
Life instead of the Physical Plant. He.
commented that the RCF complaints
about the Physical Plant seemed to stem
rather from communication problems
than from work performance.
He cautioned the group that it was
"possible to wade into this deeper than
one wants to."
Allowing that some of the problems
may belong to his office, Temple
emphasized the restructuring taking place
in the Office of Residence Life.
Previously, many University agencies
were responsible for residence life and
had difficulty defining the scope of their

Stallings plans to speak before the new
legislative body next Thursday to present
his priorities. "If they disagree I want
them to come and tell me, he said. "I
am committed to the fact that the two
branches have to cooperate.
Stallings admitted new legislature "is
presented with a very big dilemma. There
will be significant pressure from groups
that will want to keep the money that
was appropriated, he said.
"I hope the new legislature will realize
that whoever is elected president next
year should not have to live under the
situation I have had to, of having an old
legislature vote on a budget for a new
president before he has a chance to set his
plans, Stallings commented.

Kepner suggested the responsibility of
a study he designated to the Committee
on University Residence Life (CURL),
student-faculty group to make concrete
suggestions for improvement in Office of
Residence Life communications.
Concerning other Physical Plant
activity, Temple indicated the willingness
of the Physical Plant to discontinue daily
cleaning of students' rooms.
He said few, if any, Physical Plant
employes would lose their jobs if taken
from maintenance work because of the
Physical Plant's high employe turnover
However, he stressed the money saved
from this would not cut back appreciably
on students room rent. More likely, the
surplus money would guarantee room

the Physical Plant in the future and will
