Women's group posts bill of particulars on UNC discrimination
by Toni Gilbert
Miriam Slifkin, former president of the Chapel Hill chapter
of the National Organization of Women (NOW), listed
examples Thursday compiled by NOW in 1 973 to support its
charge that UNC discriminates against women employees.
NOW filed a complain in 1973 with the district office of the
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC),
charging that UNC has practiced sex discrimination against
faculty and certain nonfaculty women in matters of
Recruitment, hiring, promotion and salaries.
The EEOC and UNC officials will meet in Charlotte Nov. 4
to begin conciliation between the University and NOW.
Douglass Hunt, the UNC affirmative action officer, said
that he would not comment on NOW's charges or the EEOC's
report during the conciliation period.
According to the information provided bySlifkin, NOW
maintained that incidents of unfair treatment of women
employees have been both blatant and subtle.
In its investigation, Slifkin said NOW reported that one
woman who believed she was discriminated against by her
department took her complaint to the Faculty Grievance
Committee, the established procedure for filing complaints.
After filing the complaint, Slifkin said the woman told
NOW that she was subjected to reprisals by male members of
Slifkin said that this type of incident was not uncommon.
She said NOW's findings include a report that a women said
she was refused reinstatement to her job after taking maternity
leave. The woman pursued action through the grievance
committee, Sifkin said, but nothing happened, and the
woman was dismissed.
Another woman told NOW she was given a position for
which she was highly qualified that included supervising six
persons and a number of student aides, Slifkin said. The
woman said the details of her job were specifically outlined
when she accepted the job, and statements that she had been
performing adequately were made by several persons on the
Slifkin said that about eight months after the woman had
been hired, the woman said she was informed by certain
administrators of the program that the nature of her job was
being changed and that she would no longer be qualified. The
woman was told to seek another position, Slifkin said.
The woman maintained that the position for which she was .
hired still existed in the program, but according to Slifkin, the
woman said the head of the program denied this in a letter.
Slifkin said that when the woman first learned of the change
in her job, she told NOW that she was the subject of
harassment by male members of the program. The woman
said the purpose of the harassment was to make her leave as
quickly as possible.
According to Slifkin, the woman, in supporting her
allegations, said that her office was moved, and she had to
share space with several persons. Since the nature of the
woman's job required that she deal with people in private,
Slifkin said, the woman said it was impossible for her to do her
Slifkin said the woman told NOW that when working space
within the program was reassigned, one office left vacant was
used for storing forms.
Slifkin said another case cited by NOW involved a woman
with a Ph.D. who said she had heard of a job opening in her
department and applied for it, although the position had not
been advertised. The woman said she was told by the
chairperson that no such opening existed. The woman said she
checked with him several weeks later and was told that the
position had already been filled.
According to Slifkuv one woman contacted by NOW
maintained that she had been harassed in "obnoxious ways"
by her immediate supervisor, a man. The woman said she took
her complaint to the departmental personnel officer. The
officer told NOW that he called the supervisor about his
behavior and that the man apologized. However, the woman
said her supervisor continued to harass her, so she quit.
According to Slifkin, the personnel officer asked the
supervisor why the woman had quit. He said the man told him
that the woman said she was leaving for vacation, but that he
suspected she was pregnant. The woman was not married,
When the woman returned, Slifkin said, the personnel
officer called to ask her why she had left. It was then that the
woman learned about the supervisor's charge.
STOCKHOLM, Sweden (UPI)
American novelist Saul Bellow won the 1976
Nobel prize for literature Thursday, giving
the United States an unprecedented sweep of
the Nobel awards in its Bicentennial year.
Bellow, the author of Humboldt's Gift last
year and Mr. Sammler's Planet in 1970, won
the prize "for the human understanding and
subtle analysis of contemporary culture that
are combined in his work," the Swedish
"I feel it is a very great honor," the 61 -year-old
Canadian-born author said at home in
Chicago. "After all, some first-rate writers
have won it."
Seven Americans have won every one of
the 1976 Nobel prizes for economics,
medicine, physics, chemistry and literature,
each worth $ 1 50,000. The Swedish Academy
did not name anyone to receive the peace
prize this year.
No nation has ever before won all the
awards in one year.
Bellow, a professor at the University of
Chicago, has described himself as "just an
old-fashioned writer." The son of a coal
dealer, he has lived, studied and worked in
Chicago since he was 9 years old.
To a reporter who asked if he had planned
to celebrate the prize Swedish news media
first reported two days ago he was the
apparent choice Bellow chuckled and said:
"No, I don't have champagne for breakfast.
You know, that's a sort of Truman Capote
The Nobel citation said Bellow has gone
through two phases in developing his style as
His first book, Dangling Man, in 1944,
began a new style that explored the
protagonist's mind rather than dramatic
action. Other novels in this spirit included
The Victim (1947) and Seize the Day nine
years later "one of the classic works of our
time," the Academy said.
The Nobel jurors said Bellow's second
phase began with The Adventures of Augie
March in 1953, which showed his style of
mixing the picaresque novel together with
philosophic conversations with the reader.
He continued with Henderson the Rain King
in 1959, Herzog in 1964, Mr. Sammler's
Planet and Humboldt's Gift.

"Parking on campus is like the food in the
(campus) cafeteria," Rutherford said. "It has
always been bad."
The problem becomes increasingly worse
with the addition of each new building,
Locke said. "Every time we put a new
building up, we lose parking spaces; we've

New buildings and additions planned for
the next five years, along with the possible
loss of parking spaces, include:

parking lot with the construction of the new

construction of a physical education and
70 spaces behind Ackland Art Center

52 spaces from the Union's paved

40 to 50 spaces behind Rosenau Hall
(School of Public Health) with the
construction of a new public health and
environmental science center.
35 to 40 spaces with an addition to Swain
Hall for the radio, television and motion
20 spaces around the medical complex

Health Services building.
23 spaces with an addition to Memorial
Jones and Locke agreed that the
University will not be able to continue to
allow parking many cars on the central
campus. As the University expands, the
problem will get worse, they said.
"People are going to have to park off
campus, using the bus system to get to
campus," Locke said.
Plenty of parking permits are left, he said,
but they are for the fringe lots at Kroger
Plaza and the Horace Williams Airport.
The immediate problem with the
expansion of the University is with the
physical education and intramural facility.
Construction is scheduled to start within the
next few months.
The next pressing problem, Locke said,
will be the new central library, due to begin
construction in two to three years.
Locke said there were no definiete plans,
but he did note several possible solutions to
More fringe parking lots could be built off
Manning Drive near Hinton James
residence hall, he said. Other lots could be
built at the Chapel Hill Country Club, near
the site of the new tennis courts.
Locke said that plans to double-deck the
Bell Tower parking lot were made several
years ago but could not be financed. He said
that this project is still a possibility.
The 1977-79 UNC budget request includes
plans for a hospital parking deck addition
which would hold approximately 500 cars.
This project must be approved by the N.C.
General Assembly, which meets in January.
Locke also said that trees in Forest
Theater could be cut down for additional
lots. "But I don't think anybody would agree
to that," he said.
Students and employees are going to have
to begin facing the problem and realize that
parking is going to mean inconvenience,

and Yale have eliminated student parking
altogether, and even this is a possibility," he

A Traffic and Parking Advisory Committee of student
and faculty representatives will assist the administration in
planning transportation policies. Student Body President
Billy Richardson announced Thursday.
The committee will assist the administration in
determining on-campus bus schedules and fares and in
forming campus parking policies. The committee will also
suggest methods for parking sticker and bus pass sales and
The committee, which was appointed by Claiborne S.
Jones, vice chancellor for business and finance, will consist
of five faculty members and four student members. Faculty
members are John B. Adams, dean of the School of
Journalism; Roger Barton, associate dean of the School of
Dentistry; Blanche Crither, administrative manager of the
Department of Psychology; Marilyrv Riddle, personnel
officer of the School of Medicine, and William Strickland,
associate dean of Student Affairs.
The student members were appointed by Jones from a list
of candidates suggested by Richardson. They are junior Paul
Arne, senior Patsy Daniel, graduate student Michael Dixon
and senior Russell Gardner.
Richardson said that all of the students selected were well
informed on transportation concerns of the university, the
town and the student community.
The students will not be expected to advocate Student
Government positions to the committee," Richardson said.
"Hopefully, their views will reflect the student interests."
The idea for the committee resulted from problems which
arose after the administration failed to seek student input
when it was negotiating a bus contract with Chapel Hill and
again when determining a Morrison parking policy.
"These two problems indicated the need for such a board,"
Richardson said. .
Richardson discussed his proposal for student input with
James Cansler, associate dean of Student Affairs. Cansler
advocated the selection of such a group in a letter to Jones
July 20. Jones appointed the committee Oct. 6.
Richardson said he hoped that student input in the
planning stages of transportation decisions would prevent
hostile student reaction to such decisions.
up controversy last March," Student Body
President Billy Richardson said.
"It was my feeling as well as Dr. Condie's
(director of University housing) that the
Housing Department's main weakness was
the lack of student representation in policy
"We concluded we needed an advisory
board to help solve the present problems and
to decide in which direction the housing
department should be headed in the future,"
Student appointees, selected by
Richardson, include Resident Housing
Authority (RHA) President Bob Loftin; Jan
Y. Bolick, a junior from Winston-Salem;
David Gantt, a junior from Sanford; Charles
M. Kummel, a sophomore from New York
City, and Phyllis B. Pickett, a sophomore
from Rocky Mount.
"I selected these students on the basis of
their leadership experiences with housing
and their knowledge " of the (housing)
situation," Richardson said.
"These students are qualified to assess the
situations for themselves and vote by their
conscience for what is best for the greatest
number of students. They've got to vote like
they believe, not by my conscience nor the
student government's. They are not going to
be our puppets," Richardson said.
Condie selected the faculty appointments
to the board. Nancy Voight, associate
professor of the School of Education, will
head the 10-member board. Other faculty
members include Mark I. Applebaum,
associate professor. Department of
Psychology; Ronald W. Hyattn associate
professor, Department of Physical
Education; William D. Perreault, associate
professor, School of Business
Administration, and Sharon K. Meginnia,
Student Health Service.
The original plan for the advisory board
was sent to James Cansler, associate dean of
student affairs and after slight revision was
forwarded to Chancellor N. Ferebee Taylor.
Taylor said he felt approval of the advisory
board should be made by the dean of student
"Fifty per cent representation on this
board is a big step for student self
government," Richardson said.
"Decisions that concern students daily are
constantly being made without involving
students in the planning and decision
"By appointing students to the board we
are directly involving the student body,"
