More state aid likely to
be given private colleges
Stiff Writer
The N. C General Assembly probably
crs.r.1 an increase in state aid to
pnva'.e colleges during the present
session, according to Rep. J. P. H us kins,
D-lrrdeil. trie chairperson of the House
Appropriations Committee.
If the increase is approved, an
aJd;tional $100 in direct aid would be
gixen to students uho enroll in private
school in July. An additional $100 in aid
culd be added in July 1978.
The state now gives $400 for each
student enrolled in one of North
Carolina's 3S private schools. Direct aid
to students accounts for half of the state's
funds, and $200 is given to the school for
financial-aid grants.
"I think the chances of the private
Khcvls getting this aid is very good,"
HusLins said. "We have already
approed such an increase tentatively.
$1.9 million has been budgeted for
this year's increase. Since this year's
increase ill carry over to next year, and
e expect to add an additional $100 aid,
e plan to budget $2.2 million next year."
The North Carolina Association of
Independent Colleges and Universities
(NCAICU) feels an increase in aid to
private schools would give a student more
choice in the school he plans to attend.
"There is a ratio between cost and
It's hard enough learning to ride a unicycle,
much less trying to throw a Frisbee from one
SufT Writer
The guy on the unicycle eyed the frisbee whirling
towards him through the warm spring air. He spun
around tightly, following the direction of the frisbee,
then stopped quickly and reversed as the spinning disc
came closer. For a split second the rider was motionless
as he reached up and c?.ught the frisbee.
No, this is not at the circus, it's here on the UNC
campus. The guy playing frisbee on his unicycle is
Roger Sharrett, a senior from Charlotte, who has been
riding for 1 1 years.

"It (the unicycle) takes your mind away from other
things and focuses it on yourself so that you can ignore
other people's attitudes and just be yourself.
attendance in schools around the state,"
said James Oliver, research director for
NCAICU. "A large difference exists
between what it costs a student to go to a
state-supported school and a private one.
"The type of funding that the
legislature is now considering will help
the problem of the tuition gap in the
state,' Oliver said.
NCAICU aspires for more than the
prospective $200 increase. The
association has voted that the state
should provide $1,000 in aid to each full
time student enrolled in a privete school.
The state allots $2,000 per student in
state-supported schools.
"Fifty per cent is what the presidents
(of the private schools) felt was needed to
make student choice operative," Oliver
said. We feel that 50 per cent is
reasonable in time.
However, the schools probably will not
get $1,000 per student, Huskins said. "I'm
not sure that $600 to $700 isn't as much as
the private schools will get."
"My committee has already hela
hearings on the $200 increase and has
approved such an increase," Huskins
said. "Although I feel that there is a good
chance that the schools will get the $200
increase, anything could happen when it
comes to actually making the decision."
The state began to give aid to private
schools in 1972 through the Contracts
The idle rich
Inflation continues to rise, taxes are rising and energy is running out, but some
people just aren't affected. Several socially prominent, well-heeled folks gathered
behind Hinton James Dorm Sunday for a croquet tournament. Staff photos by Bill Russ.
Another unicyclist, Pete Manieri, who is a
sophomore from Pennington, N.J., describes riding
the unicycle as a free feeling. Once you get going, it's
as effortless as riding a wave on a surfboard." Manieri
has only been riding since February.
Learning to ride a unicycle is not too difficult if the
beginner has persistence, confidence and
concentration. Sharrett contends that a person can
learn to ride fairly well within a year.
It is possible to ride a unicycle faster and with less
effort than walking. Also, it is very practical since the
rider's hands are not used for balance the legs and
torso control the balance. The rider can carry books or
groceries while riding. Sharrett says it is comfortable to
ride around town or campus.
Sharrett also said he believes that the unicycle is easy
High printing costs hurt UNC publications
Staff Writer
High printing costs are strangling many
campus publications, and one solution may
be an increase in student-activities fees,
according vo several editors interviewed
The increased printing costs were reflected
in 1977-78 Campus Governing Council
(CGC) requests that were significantly
higher than allocations in 1976-77. But none
of the eight publications received what they
originally requested, although one
publication came within $17.
The publications subsidized by CGC are

Door, the Yackety Yack, Agora, Black Ink.
SHE and Student Consumer Action Union
(SCAU) booklets, The Daily Tar Heelis not
included in the list because it automatically
receiws 16 per cent of student fees.
The publications received more than
$30,000 of the $170,000 available for
allocation, but the figure was several
thousand dollars less than requested. The
reduced allocations will not cause
publication to stop, six spokespersons said,
but all agreed some solution must be found
for the future.
The solutions offered varied.
A Yackety Yack editor said CGC must set
priorities and stop splitting the money pie
between so many groups. The SCAU
president said organizations may be forced
to cut back on quality or print less. Black Ink
editors said CGC should grant money only
to groups that match allocations with fund
raising. And the Cellar Door editor said an
increase in student-activities fees was the

Staff Writer
Hours at the Undergraduate Library
will be extended during the exam period
beginning Saturday, but hours at
Wilson Library will remain the same as
Undergradaute Library hours will be
extended to provide 24-hour service
during most of the exam period. Hours
were extended for the first time three
years ago.
"The situation arose a number of
years ago when students requested study
space in the libraries during the exam
period," said Clifton Brock, associate
University librarian for public services.
Because the request was mainly for
space and not for use of library
materials, hours were extended at the
Undergraduate rather than at the
Graduate Library, Brock said.
The Undergraduate Library is more
modern and better spaced for student
soundest and most lasting solution.
MCGC can't whittle away and economize
our budgets," said Cellar Door Editor John
Russell. "Either they give us all of our
request, or they don't give us any.
"We have one cost printing and it's all
or nothing."
Russell said the amount paid in student
fees at present is outdated, because fees have
not been increased since 1957. Fees are $9

being accepted. .
Applications may be obtained at the

to learn how to ride. "If I were to compare it to
anything, it would be to learning how to walk. But as
you progress and withdraw more into yourself it's
more fun like dancing."
Sharrett taught both Pete Manieri and Mike Amaya,
a sophomore from Darien, Conn., how to ride on the
hallway in Graham Dorm.
Basically, the rider leans forward to initiate the
motion and pedals to keep pace with the forward
momentum created. This may sound like a physics
equation, but it means riding forward on a unicycle. To
move backwards, the rider must arch his back and
pedal in reverse. But to do this a rider must have lot of

Russell said.

Committee, but at the budget meeting April
