Last of UNC system;
paperwork to blame
By MARTHA WAGGONER
A 6.5 to 8.2 per cent salary increase for
faculty members was not included in the
most recent faculty paychecks, and
paperwork was to blame.
John Temple, vice chancellor for business
and finance, said extensive paperwork was
necessary to implement the increase, which
was approved by the 1977 General
Faculty members were told at the General
Faculty and Faculty Council meeting Sept.
16 that the increase would be included in
checks to be distributed at the end of
October. The increase is retroactive to July
"An extensive amount of paperwork is
necessary to implement the salary increase,
and it is necessary to get the approval from
the Office of the President," a summary of
the council proceedings stated.
The money for the salary increase was
allocated to the 16 campuses of the UNC
system by the UNC Board of Governors at
its August meeting.
The paperwork, Temple explained, "starts
at the department where they receive the
salary increases, and then come forward to
the dean, the provost, the chancellor, and
this has to be sent to the president for
approval, which has been done.
"We have to go into the payroll system and
adjust each individual salary to the new level.
We have to modify the payroll system so that
the increase will be retroactive to July 1 and
... cumulative to Nov. 1."
E. Maynard Adams, faculty chairperson,
blamed the legislature in part for the delay
because it "was so late in approving the pay
raise. There was a tremendous amount of
paperwork that had to be done on the time
span we had."
. Adams said the paperwork should have
been completed by Sept. 12 "or something
like that in order for the increase to be
reflected in this paycheck."
Felix Joyner, vice president of the UNC
General Administration, said he knew of

a matter of rainfall.
Durham has enough water to sell two

buying water from Durham because of a
lack of sufficient funds. Money to
purchase water from Durham was not

By STEPHEN HARRIS
UNC dorm residents overwhelmingly
oppose spending more money for telephone
installation and narrowly oppose an increase
in student lees, according to a survey
released Thursday by the Residence Hall
The survey is based on questionnaires
distributed by RHA governors to dorm
residents and returned from Sept. 13 to Sept.
RHA received responses from 569
students. Questions on the survey covered
lour general areas: the proposed student fee
increase. Southern Bell, a possible fall break
and water conservation.
The sampling of student opinion, which
was funded by RHA and Student
Government, shows that 94 per cent of the
students felt Southern Bell Telephone C'o.'s
recent increase in installation rates from
$7.50 to $20 was unfair.
The questionnaire asked. "Based upon
Southern Bell's service, do you believe that
the hook-up rate increase from $7.50 to $20
is justified?" The response: 1.8 per cent yes.

plays on football, farm fields

If Rameses had his way, he would just as
soon skip football season. For when the Tar
Heels take to the gridiron, students from
others schools take to the pastures in search
of Carolina's mascot.
"One year the State people came and
kidnapped him," says Bob Hogan, keeper of

Another year, Hogan hid Rameses in a
trailer on his farm. "East Carolina found
him." Hogan says. "They painted his horns

Rameses lives at Lake Hogan Dairy farm
outside of Carrboro. "He likes it pretty well
here," Hogan says. "He stays with the cows
and does just about what he pleases."
A visit to Lake Hogan Dairy confirmed

barn for their afternoon milking, Rameses
and several other ewes strolled along
underfoot. His Carolina Blue horns set him
apart from the other rams.

"Rameses is a good-natured little fellow,"
Hogan says, "He's not much trouble at all.
He eats grass and fodder with the cows. 1
guess he feels safe around them."
Rameses, who is starting his fifth year as
mascot, is six-and-a-half years old, Hogan
says. "He should be around for a couple
more years, at least."
Rameses is not a direct descendent of the
original mascot. Credit for the selection of a
ram as the school's mascot goes to Vic
Huggins, Carolina's head cheerleader in the
'20s, Hogan says. "He was named after a
football player they called the Battering
Ram. His name was Jack Merritt.
"The University didn't know what to do
with the ram after they got it, My dad, Henry
Hogan, was playing football at the time, so
they asked him if he would take care of it."
The Hogan family has kept the mascots
since. I n return for their care, the Hogans get
tickets to the football games.
Rameses gets a bath and has his horns
painted before each game. He rides to the
stadium in the back of a pickup truck. "This
year, we'll take him to all of the home
games." Hogan says.
