Bus system touted ms relief
for overcrowded parking lots
f to itf Wm0m
The Chapel Hill bus system is the only
present alternative to the ever-worsening
shortage of parking space on campus,
according to William D. Locke, University
Traffic and Parking Manager.
Loss of parking space due to new no
parking zones instituted by the city, coupled
with more construction on the University
campus means that this year's parking
situation will be worse than before.
The Traffic Office will encourage
students to use the bus system this fall
instead of private vehicles. Bus passes will be
sold at special discount rates until Sept. 10.
Locke said Tuesday tha this year's
parking problem has been worsened by the
loss of parking space in the city. "The town
of Chapel Hill has passed an ordinance
eliminating parking in some residential
areas. It amounts to about 1200 spaces.
Now, where are those people going to park?
The campus is just not able to handle those
There are no concrete plans for expansion
of University parking facilities, said Locke.
Planned construction on campus will reduce
available parking space even more in the
next two vears.
"It's reached -the point that more people
drive into Chapel Hill than this little town
can hold," Locke said.
The Traffic Office has increased most of
its fines for parking violations this year in
hopes of reducing the on-campus parking
"The purpose of it all is to keep people
not authorized to park, off campus," said
Locke. "We owe the people who have bought
permits a certain amount of protection."
In addition to increased fines, student
monitors will be posted at campus parking
lots this fall to check incoming cars for
"All of this is to encourage people to ride
the bus," Locke said. "It's really got to
become a necessity."
Locke suggested that people commuting
to Chapel Hill park in lots at the city's
perimeter and use the city bus system to
, reach their job.
Many employees of the University parked
in the lots that have been eliminated by the
city. "One man who had been working with
the University for 12 years came in here and
said he couldn't find a place to park." said

pattern of news distribution, whereby one developing
country receives news from another via an agency in New
York or Paris, reinforces the domination of Western values
Both of these conditions are perceived as inhibiting the
efforts of poor countries to raise their living standards thus,
as obstacles to development.
Various initiatives have been undertaken tocounteract the
perceived inequities. At the fourth Conference of Non-
Aligned Countries in Algiers in I973. delegates voted to form
a pool of national agencies to provide for a mutual exchange
of news. By January of this year, the pool had grown to
include more than 40 press agencies from Africa, Asia, Latin
America and Europe.
The most controversial activities, however, have taken
place under the auspices of the United Nations Educational.
Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). For many
years that organization has stressed the importance of
communications to the development process. In the 1970s
