Inflation, lack of patronage help
By ROBERT THOMASON
Five of the 12 Student Stores snack bars operated at a loss
last year, cutting into the overall profits of the snack bars by 1 2
per cent, according to records of the UNC Student Stores.
Seven snack bars earned $137,047.61 in the fiscal year that
ended June 30, according to figures released by Thomas A.
Shetley, general manager of the Student Stores.
Five snack bars lost a total of $ 1 6,278.08 for the most recent
Student Store officials say the loss in certain snack bars
resulted from lack of patronage, rising costs of operation in
the face of steadily increasing prices and inability to buy stock
at large volume.
"We are not governed by the same laws as businesses in the
private sector," Shetley said. "Each employee in the snack
bars received an increment in his salary because of state laws.
It would be more profitable if we could give raises based on
Joe D. Smith, snack bar supervisor for the Student Stores,
said inflation caused part of the loss. "Everything has been
going up utilities, inventory costs and salaries. We have
retained the same retail prices for some years now.
"We try to keep our prices between those of the
supermarket and those of the convenience stores. We basically
are convenience stores since people don't have to go across
town to get merchandise, but we do want to keep our prices
below those of 7-11.
"We don't buy at the high volume a grocery store can buy at.
In fact, we don't try to compete with grocery stores."

Kogan says his extroverted personality
and interest in drama influenced his decision
to compete in the mike-man try outs.
"I didn't try out for mike-man because of
the prestige of the position," he says. "The
mike-man position really doesn't have any
prestige. I enjoy getting the students excited
about the game and watching the crowd
Kogan says he spends three or four hours a
last year according to the Student Store figures. Smith
attributed this to low patronage.
"There are between 250 and 300 students in Avery, which is
considerably less than the 900 living in Morrison or Hinton
James," Smith said.
The Hinton James snack bar lost $1,319.05 last year, while
the one in Morrison earned $1,779,41. Smith said Student
Stores were not really sure why snack bars located in two
dormitories with approximately the same number of students
differed so much in profits.
"If we knew the answer, we wouldn't be losing money in
James." he said. "Possibly, there is a higher pilferage in James.
For instance, last year soft-drink machines were placed out
where students could serve themselves.
"We guess that about half of them were filling their cups,
drinking part of it and then filling it again before paying for it.
"Now, almost all items in James, including the drinks, are
clerk-serviced. We just have tried this idea, so we are not sure
how it is going to wprk."
Three years ago. Student Stores made two proposals to
reduce snack bar losses. One was to close the snack bars and
the other was to go to total vending service.
"Both of these ideas are dead now," Shelley said. "We hate
to operate at loss, but we realize that we are offering a service
to the residents."
Because the earnings from the Student Stores are used to
provide scholarships, Shetley said, "There is a philosophical
question involved: Do we deprive students of the service of the
snack bars or do we deprive students of scholarship funds?"
Shetley said he thought the average scholarship awarded
from the Student Store revenues was S600. Closing the snack
bars would mean a loss of more than 200 scholarship awards.

"It's hard to keep an eye on the game, an

According to Kogan, student responses
are the most important part of the job.
"Without the help of the student body, I'm
all washed up in my job," he says. "I want
everyone to express themselves, go wild or
get drunk and have a good time.
"When a game is close, everyone gets
behind the team and cheers, but when a game
is one-sided, like the Richmond game,
students know the team will score even
without their cheers. It wasa little d iificult to
get everyone at the Richmond game to really

Student Body President Bill Moss will
propose a student fee increase of $5 per year
at today's meeting of the Campus Cabinet,
which is composed of the heads of
organizations funded through students fees.
"1 personally believe that a reasonable
increase would be $2.50 per semester for
undergraduates," Moss said Wednesday,
"There is some question about the amount
for graduate students. The actual amount
will come out of the meeting."
The last increase in the student fees was in

imit on med transfers
By DAVID STACKS
Two North Carolina congressmen
Wednesday said they support a bill that
would limit the number of transfer
students admitted to U.S. medical
schools from foreign schools.
The 1 1 ouse Health subcommittee is to
vote on the measure today, which would
limit the number of foreign transfer
students; medical schools must accept
the equivalent of 6 per cent of the
entering freshman class. An aide to
s u b c o m m i 1 1 e e member Rep.
Richardson Preyer, P-NC, said the
measure should pass by a wide margin.
The 6 per cent figure would mean the

maximum number the school said it
could handle. A spokesperson for the
Kogan says a lot of changes have been
made in the kinds of cheers that he is allowed
to do this year.
"There has been a crack-down on
obscenity in some of the cheers because some
people were upset with obscene words last
year," he says. "1 can't do the ice-cold beer
cheer and the referee cheer anymore, even
though they're student favorites."
K ogan encourages students to come down
to the front and give him some new cheers
during the game or request some of their
"As long as the words aren't stronger than
'damn' or 'hell," I'll be glad to do them."
Kogan says he may begin to incorporate
more dancing in his routines in the future.
"Wake F orest had a really great mike-man
last year," he says. "He was a dance major
and had a lot of movements with his cheers. I
want to eventually do more dancing because
1 think it really gets the crowds up."
Kogan says he has a surprise for the
crowds at the Texas Tech game Saturday.

be a special guest appearance of a rock artist,

The association is in favor of the
portion of the bill that would prevent
the federal government from telling
medical schools which transfer students
must be admitted to which U.S. schools.
The current law says the U.S.
Department of Health, Education and
Welfare can order schools to admit
those students who were not admitted
on their own application.
In addition, any transfer student from
a foreign medical college can be
admitted to a U.S. medical school if he is
an American, has two years of training
and has passed the first part of the
National Medical Board examination.
Preyer and at least one other North
Carolina congressman, I..H. Fountain,
are supporting the bill.
"U nless the law is amended, our states
and schools may be forced to make a
difficult choice between overly
restrictive federal requirements and
federal aid to education," Fountain said
in a prepared statement.
"We ought to insure that doctors
practicing in the United States today
will be qualified and well-trained."

If the U.S. Department of Health,

desegregation plan proposed by the

could lose a cool $32 million in federal
research grants a prospect some
University officials believe is farfetched.
1 n its annual fiscal report made public this
week, the Office of Research Administration
totals federal research grants to Chapel Hill
at $32,078,636. The money is awarded by 15
different federal agencies to dozens of
academic departments. The largest singje
grant, more than $18 million, comes from
HEW's National Institute of Health.
HEW could attempt to cut off all $32
million if it rejects UNC's desegregation
plan, which does not meet certain guidelines
required by HEW.
HEW has until January 1978 to make a
decision on the plan, which was adopted in
August by the U NC Board of Governors and

Cutoffs could occur as easily in the
Student Aid office here, which dispenses
federal grants, loans and scholarships to
Carolina students each semester.
If HEW decides to make the cutoffs, it
would do so on the grounds that UNC is not
in compliance with the Civil Rights Act of
1964, which states that any institution that
discriminates on the basis of race cannot
receive federal funds.
However, the prospect is "iffy "according
to John L. Sanders, vice president for
planning in the UNC General
"This has never actually been carried
through in higher education, although there
have been cutoffs in secondary schools
before," Sanders said Wednesday.
Sanders explained that HEW could use

would involve handing the case to the U.S.
