A resolution asking the Faculty Council to extend the four-week
drop period will be considered at the Campus Governing Council
(CGC) meeting Tuesday night.
Bob Long, chairperson of the CGC Administration Committee,
will introduce a four-part resolution calling for.
A public hearing on the drop period so students may present
their views and arguments.
A poll of students and faculty to measure support for an
extended drop period.
A report presenting an alternative to the recommendation of the
faculty's Educational Policy Committee, which voted unanimously
last week to retain the four-week period.
Presentation of an alternative proposal to the entire Faculty
Council at its meeting Oct. 21.
The four-week drop period was instituted in the spring of 1976 by
the Faculty Council in an attempt to reduce grade inflation. Faculty
members argued then that students would drop fewer courses under
the shorter drop period.
On Oct. 21, the Faculty Council will decide whether to continue
the four-week drop period.
The resolution to be submitted to the CGC by Long states, "We are
convinced that many students cannot make informed evaluations of
all their courses and professors within four weeks."

The resolution also states, "We are not convinced that a somewhat
extended drop period would contribute significantly to grade
Long said the decision to adopt the four-week drop period was
inconsistent with other efforts to curb grade inflation.
"What has happened is that a group of professional educators have
made what they consider to be an educational decision, without the
input of students or the general faculty," Long said.
"No group of educators, no matter how good, can come up with a
magic number like four weeks, six weeks or any arbitrary time within
which students can be expected to make a decision.
"These proposals made to the CGC are not being taken to establish
an adversary relationship with the Faculty Council; we're trying to
make a reasonable accommodation taking both opinions of the
students and of the general faculty into consideration."
CGC will poll both students and faculty members, Long said. They
will be asked their opinions on only a few matters: The need for an
extended drop period, the length of the new period and the reasons
why a new drop period should or should not be implemented.
"There are faculty members being disadvantaged by the four-week
policy too," Long said. "What we want is to get student and faculty
opinion and reach some sort of compromise figure.
"I'm convinced that if we do a good job, do a good poll and make a
reasonable request, that the Faculty Council will look upon it
to get little accomplished during the
"We made some big plays, but we didn't
have any consistency," UNC coach Bill
Dooley said. "They (Tech) mixed it up on
defense and caused us some confusion."
Tres Adami started for Tech in place of
Allison, but sophomore Mark Johnson
came in and ignited the Tech offense, which
roiled up 235 yards rushing to Carolina's
122. Johnson rushed for 69 yards and passed
for 17 while fullback Billy Taylor led the
game with ISO yards.
"We didn't know much about Johnson,"
Dooley said. "Johnson was more a runner,
and Adami was more of a passer."

It had been billed as the "Battle of the
Backups," but when it was over, the
Carolina-Texas Tech game had been decided
by the swift kick of the Tech placekicker's leg
as the Red Raiders won by a field goal, 10-7.
Carolina's offense was hobbled by the loss
of quarterback Matt Kupec, while Tech was
without prospective All-America and.

Education enrollment drops
as teaching field narrows
By MEREDITH CREWS
UNC freshmen evidently have decided that if 60,200 persons in one profession
can't find employment, the job market in that field is just too darn tight.
That's the situation education majors faced last year, according to U.S.
Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW) figures. HEW also projected
a surplus of 123,400 teachers by 1980-81.
Fewer UNC freshmen indicated they
planned to major in education this year
"Only 87 freshmen indicated a desire
to enter the School of Education this
year," said Gerald Unks, an associate
professor in the School of Education.
"I do not recall the exact figures, but it
is indeed a significant drop from last
year," she said. "Of course, more
students will want to enter the School of
Education by the fall of their junior
Also, the education school is reducing
the number of students entering the
profession by changing the school's
William Burke, director of teacher
education, said the School of Education
is accepting fewer transfers from other
colleges and universities.
"We don't have control over the
number of students entering the School
of Education from General College, but
we can limit the number of students
coming in from other colleges," Burke
"The number of transfer students
entering the School of Education has
gradually decreased each year," he said.
"This year we accepted 32 transfer
students as compared to 47 last year. At
one time, the number of transfers was in
the hundreds, but that was a long time
"So few students are coming in the
School of Education as compared to
past years," Unks said. "They know
there is a teacher surplus, and they're
smart enough not to enter the field
In North Carolina, only 2,649 out of
6,655 qualified teachers found teaching
jobs in the state from 1975 to 1976,
according to state figures.
"Some of these people may have
found teaching jobs in other states,
attended graduate school or gone into
other fields where degrees in education
are valuable," Burke said.
Carolina's punting game also suffered a
drought that has been plaguing it all season.
Johnny Elam was unable to punt Carolina
into good defensive position all afternoon,
with six punts averaging only 30 yards.
Placekicker Tom Biddle tried for two field
goals, one that went wide, and another that
was short by just a few feet.
Tech won the game with a 35-yard field
goal by Bill Adams with 3:44 left. The score
came as the climax to an exhausting drive by
Tech that ate four minutes off the clock and
left Carolina without any time to try to come
Tech had taken over the ball at midfield
after a short 25-yard punt by Richard '
Kleinman the first of his collegiate career.
Tech took advantage of the good field
position and drove 52 yards in 1 0 play s to the
Carolina 18 for the field goal attempt.
"The defense wasn't doing anything
wrong," UNC strong safety Alan Caldwell
said. "It was just that they were executing

said. "We'd play our hearts out. We knew

Carolina might not have scored in the
game, but the Red Raider punter, Mike
Mock (also a linebacker) set up Carolina's
score. The Tar Heel defense stopped Tech
deep in its territory, and Mock went in to
punt Standing on his own five-yard line, he
took the snap and stumbled forward as he
was swarmed over by Carolina defenders.
Tailback Phil Farris, who started the
game, ran in on the next play for the score
with 4:59 left in the first half. Farris split time
with freshman Amos Lawrence, who broke
into the Carolina tailback scheme last week
with . a 100-yard-plus game against
Northwestern. But Lawrence could get
nowhere Saturday, picking up 30 yards and
losing 11 for a net of 19 yards. One of
Lawrence's runs picked up 20 yards after he
was hit early and used some extra effort,
stumbling with one hand on the ground for
nearly 10 yards to make the big gain.
A tearful Christensen said after the game
that it was his fault the offense could move
no better than it did.
"I missed my first three passes," he said. "I
take full credit for what happened out there.
The offensive line really handled those guys.
They were some football players. We had
some letdowns, and this was my fault. I made
some bad checks. I put pressure on the
offensive line. I hope no one writes anything
bad about the offensive line. I called some
things I shouldn't have that made the line do

OWASA still buying Durham water;
accepts grant and loan from EDA
By MEREDITH CREWS ,
Despite the shrinking resources of the Orange Water and
Sewer Authority (OWASA), its governing board decided
Thursday to continue water purchases from Durham.
Executive Director Everette Billingsley suggested that the

purchases continue in a memorandum issued to the board
before its meeting. . In the statement, Billingsley said a
discontinuation of purchases now could make it difficult to
acquire water from Durham in the future.
"It could be more difficult to re-initiate water purchases
after we stopped them temporarily," Billingsley said. "We
would first need assurances from the Durham City Council
that we could return to them for water if it was needed.
"Also, the weather bureau's forecast for October does not
show any substantial changes in the amount of rainfall," he
said. "After looking at these calculations, 1 thought the
reasonable approach would be to buy 1.7 to 2 million gallons
of water per day."
Billingsley said the amount of water purchased from
Durham could be reduced if there was additional rainfall in
"We are now holding steady at a consumption of 4.7 to 4.8
million gallons of water a day," he said. "The conservation
program is still in effect, and we are trying to avoid a water
In other actionv OWASA accepted an award from the
Community Emergency Drought Act (EDA). The $1.8
million in federal funds includes a $550,000 grant and a loan of
$1,283,800 at 5 per cent interest.
The EDA grant and loan will be used to pay for Durham
water purchases and the construction of a 10-mile pipeline to
"By accepting the EDA loan, we asked them to commit the
money to us," OWASA member Robert Epting said. "We still
have the option to turn down the money later.
"Just because we said we wanted the money reserved for us
does not mean we have to dig a shovel of dirt in Hillsborough
OWASA's acceptance of the EDA award had to be
submitted by Sept. 30.
The authority also held a public hearing on a proposed
surcharge of 30 cents on customers to recover funds drained
by the w ater purchases. It deferred a decision on the surcharge
until OWASA's Wednesday meeting.
Attorney Claude Jones told the authority that a 90-day
notice is required before the surcharge can be levied.
