C!osed-out dorm dwellers
ponder lottery alternatives
By CHIP HIGHSMITH
Many students involved in 'the recent
random drawing for University housing
were disappointed with the results 340
students were closed out in 19 dorms but
many say they think the system is the fairest
method of selecting dorm residents.
Last year was the first time a random
drawing was used to select dorm residents.
Before, students waited in line, sometimes
overnight, to sign up with their residence
"1 think the lottery v is the most fair
system," said Marshall Bowden, a freshman
closed out of Alexander. "I think it gives
everyone an even chance." Most students
interviewed agreed with Bowden.
But not all. "1 believe in the survival of the
fittest," said freshman Steve Jacobson, who
was closed out of Connor Dorm. "1 think
that if someone really wants to get back in
the dorm they should wait in line for it. I
would have waited eight hours to get back in
"People that didn't really care about
getting back in the dorm got back in. People
who really helped the dorm participated in
intramurals, worked in the dorm
government got kicked out. 1 think they
should decide the dorm space using the
Another freshman from Connor dorm.
Roy Gallinger, suggested a new method:
"We should have a point system for the
things you do in the dorm, so that what you
do for the dorm determines your priority in
getting back in."
Other dorm residents had more
suggestions for improving the way students
are selected for the limited space in
"If they raised the deposit for rooms high
enough, it might discourage people who
didn't really care whether they got in the
dorm," senior Richard Liebman said.

Cut in bus hours, routes expected
The city of Chapel Hill probably will cut bus
service 9.000 operating hours and eliminate the N
. Route next year, interim Transportation Director
John Bartosiewic said at a public hearing of the
Transportation Board Wednesday night.
The Transportation Board has submitted four
policy options for transportation operations to the
Board of Alderman. Aldermen are expected to
select a policy within a month after it has received
recommendations from Town Manager Kurt
"Option II is similar to the current level of
service." Bartosiewic? said. He said the option
offers good peak service with an average 20 to 45-
This alternative would cost $990,000 and has an
estimated ridership of 1.6 million persons. The
present system costs $955,000 and has 1.8 million
Bartosiewic said the deletion ol the N Route
which services the Morgan Creek area will cut
costs. He said the 40 to 50 rides daily on the route
are not worth the $24,000 spent on maintaining
Plans for 17 bus shelters also were presented at

Emotions ran high furing dorm lotteries
Building a new dorm would take care of
the problem, said Lisa Gerahty. a resident of
Alexander Dorm. "But with enrollment
dropping in colleges they won't build any
more dorms. They would rather screw you
than risk getting screwed themselves."

go to Memorial Hall to see their peers who
were tapped. It was a very big occasion.4'
"The scope of it has changed as the

Rosenthal said. She stressed that she would
like to see the entire campus attending the
