A proposal requesting that the Chapel
Hill Telephone Company discontinue a
$5 installation fee has been turned down,
Residence College Federation (RCF)
chairman Steve Saunders said Thursday.
Saunders said he and Director of
Residence Life Robert Kepner talked
with Director of Utilities Grey Culbreth
about the hookup fee. Culbreth told
them the fee could not be removed.
"The fee actually covers a lot more
than simply turning the phone on,"
Saunders - explained. "The - phone
company hires temporary help to assist in
getting the installations done quickly and
smoothly. Extra people have to be hired
to handle the rush of orders. This comes
out of the fee.
"In addition, there is a multi-stage
operation for setting up records. The
names must be listed for billing records
and the information service. Then there is
a reverse process when the phones are
Saunders said the actual cost of
installing a phone, as estimated by the
Bell Telephone Company, "is closer to
Saunders added that Culbreth expects
the rate to go up to $7.50 on a statewide
basis. Phone rates are controlled by the
State Utilities Commission.
The RCF passed a resolution April 5
asking for revocation of the fee and
instructed Saunders to go to the proper
officials about the request.
"We thought the $5 fee was just for
turning the phone on," Saunders said.
"But how, I don't see we have any case to
try to get the fee dropped.
"I'm glad to get the information out
about what the fee covers. Until now, I
didn't know about the real reasons for

The previous study, which found there
had been "no negligence" by the Athletic
Department in Arnold's death, was
supported by University officials but

Some of the issues which the Athletic
Committee report is expected to contain
include required dormitory residence of
the athletic teams, spring practice
requirements, grant-in-aids, recruiting
methods, the practice of "red -shirting"
and the kind and amount of medical aid
available during athletic practices.
In the latter respect, the committee
has worked with another subcommittee
studying the medical aspects of athletics.
John VV. Schutz, chairman of the
Chancellor's Committee on
Undergraduate Degree Requirements, will
also report on the progress of that

changes in both the structure and the
content of the undergraduate programs

Sitterson last fall, the committee has been

and outside consultants.
Possible changes that could be
recommended by the committee include
dropping the course load to four courses
per semester and required residence for a
degree from four to three years.

Since March 1970, when North
Carolina National Bank (NCNB)
announced its plans for a six-story
building on Franklin Street, many Chapel
Hill residents and UNC alumni have
complained incessantly about losing the
'Village atmosphere" downtown.
The result? A modern three-story
building rises above all other stores, a
six-story office building looms in the
background and a parking deck rounds
out the scene with a pedestrian walkway
suspended over Rosemary Street.
John Wettach, vice president in charge
of NCNB branches in Orange County,
said the bank has needed new quarters for
years. "We tried to develop an adjacent
location so we could move easily. When
we announced our building plans, a very
strong group opposed it.
"The bank seemed to be a scapegoat
for other problems," he said. "It came at
a time when there had been no
controversy for a while. In one week,
many local papers ran editorials opposing

After much discussion of the six-story
building, Chapel Hill Mayor Howard Lee
appointed a committee to study the
phns. Wettach served with local residents
on the committee.
The entire building is owned and being
built by Plaza Associates, Inc., of Chapel
Hill. The land on which the old bank was
located was bought from the bank by
Plaza, and plans for the original building
were drawn up by local architects.
The decision was made to abandon the
original plans for a 90 foot building after
much pressure. Andy Little, assistant to
Mayor Lee, said the bank was not
obligated to present the plans to the
Appearance Commission before building
began. "It was a courtesy effort on their
part, because they did not need a special
permit to go on with their plans " he said.

Precisely at 12 noon, the choir
members will briefly desert their
respective posts to assemble in

For those negligent villagers who
forget to carry change during their
Saturday jaunts downtown, several
hot-pants attired sopranos and altos will
sport money belts to make change.
If the choir is to raise $50,000 by its
mid-May deadline, it is imperative UNC
students be willing to show financial
support, since a major facet of statewide
fund raising efforts depends upon the
success of backhome strength that can be
referred to by choir members in meetings
with business and alumni interests.
Carolina Choir Day will mark a
precedent in the history of the choir,
which has never charged admission to any
of its concerts on campus (with the
exception of the Memorial Hall concert
last year that helped the choir accept an
invitation to Daytona Beach, Florida).
In the five years since the arrival of
choir conductor Dr. Lara Hoggard, Kenan
Professor of Music, the past choirs have
performed in 17 concert situations on
campus without profit. It is precisely this
lack of funding that has necessitated the
choir's turning down several prestigious
invito ti frrvrn throughout thp nation.
Saturday will change all that. For eight
hours, choir members will sing, kiss, sell
cakes, lay dimes on the sidewalk and pray

The bank occupies the first floor and
basement of the new building. The larger
office building in the rear, which is
expected to be completed by the first of
August, will house at least 20 new retail
stores, along with 60,000 feet of office
space. The upper two levels of the bank
building will also be used for office space.
In the space where the old bank was
located, an arcade will be constructed as a
passageway from Franklin to Rosemary
Street. Because the rear building was
constructed in a parking lot, a parking
deck was drawn into the new plans to
meet the requirements for parking in the
local zoning code. A pedestrian walk was
built over Rosemary Street to connect
the deck with the office building.
Sam Longiotti, owner of the buildings,
said NCNB asked him to stop plans for
building when the protest began. '"Tie
