Most of the leaders of Campus Governing Council-funded
organizations favor a student-fee increase, interviews Monday
An advisory referendum will be held Wednesday to allow the
student body to voice its opinion on the issue. Final approval of the
student-fee increase rests with the CGC and the UNC Board of
If the fee increase is approved, it will be the first increase since
1954. It will increase the level of money raised through fees from
$330,000 to $380,000.
One organization, the Association for Women Students, had a
worker calling persons and urging them to vote for the fee increase.
Other organizations also expressed a need for the increase. "We
definitely need a student-fee increase," said Jack Smith, co-director
of Human Sexuality Counseling. "As it stands, we don't have enough
money. All of our expenses have gone up."
Last year, 2,000 copies of a venereal disease handbook cost the
counseling group $100. This year, the same number of copies cost
Yackety Yack Editor Ted Kyle also supports the fee increase.
"Until 1972, the Yack was free to students," Kyle said. "In that year,
because of the larger number of organizations seeking money from
the CGC, the Yack had to go to subscriptions.
A spokesperson for the Residence Hall
Association said RHA has taken no official
stand on the proposed fee increase, although
it did offer to help the CGC circulate
student-fee information. "We hope, only for
the sake of other organizations, that it does
pass," he said.
Eric Locher, president of the Carolina
Union, said he favored the fee increase. But
he said he doubted an increase would mean
more free flicks or concerts.
"The fee increase is the best way I see for
the students to avert a four-page Daily Tar
Heel," Editor Greg Porter said. The DTH
used to maintain an average of eight pages a
day, he said, but that average has shrunk to
six pages due to rising production costs.
"The competition for the advertising
dollar in Chapel Hill is tight," Porter said.
"Although the DTH receives most of its
budget through advertising, a shot in the arm
Student Body President Bill Moss said the
proposed fee increase is needed not only to
maintain present campus organizations but
to encourage the beginning of others. He
said student organizations are an asset to the
University. "I'd hate to see this campus
without them," he said.
Not everyone said they favored the
increases. CGC member Bruce M. Tindall,

Committee will examine allocation of funds
By KATHY HART
A committee recently appointed by the Campus
Governing Council will study the budgetary
procedure used by the CGC Finance Committee to
allocate student funds.
Concern over the allocation of student fees that has
arisen with the debate over the proposed increase
generated the formation of the committee. Finance
Committee members generally concede that there is a
more effective system for allocating fees than the
"Whether or not there is a fee increase, there is still a
need for this committee," Student Body President Bill
Moss said recently.
In the pasiJhe Finance Committee has allocated
funds on the basis of the number of students a group
affects and how these groups relate their programs to
the Finance Committee.
"The Finance Committee has based its decisions on
assumptions and vague memories of what past CGCs
have done," Moss said.
"The process now is very subjective," said Phil
Searcy, Finance Committee chairperson. "1 wouldn't
want anyone to have to go through what 1 had to go
"I had to make a lot of decisions myself. Some kind
of criteria is needed to base decisions on."
"Unfortunately at times the CGC has been laced
with good projects and worthy organizations, but
limited amounts of funds," Moss said. "At these times,
the CQC has been forced to make decisions that were
almost arbitrary in nature.
The budgetary committee will examine., the
budgetary process, hearings and request forms. In
addition, the committee will consider an allocation
system which allows students to select directly the uses
of a certain percentage of the fees by checkingoff a list
of organizations they would like to see funded.
The committee will examine the possibility of
having more detailed budget request forms and
handling the budget hearing in a random order. In the
past, the budget requests have been heard in
alphabetical order, and it has been felt that those
organizations at the beginning of the alphabet had a
better chance of receiving funds.
The committee is composed of 1 1 persons. Four
members are appointed by the CGC. The student body
president makes one appointmenj and the Student
Government Committee on Student Affairs makes
A member of the faculty from the business school
and Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Dean Boulton
will appoint three administrators.
The CGC elected its four members in the meeting
held Nov. 8. They are: Phil Searcy. Finance
Committee chairperson; Diane Schafcr, a member of
the Finance Committee for two years; J. B. Kelly,
speaker pro tempore of the CGC, and Gus l.chouck.a
The Committee on Student Affairs is meeting at 4
p.m. today in Suite C to take nominations for its
appointees. All students interested in filling the
position are asked to come to the meeting. The only
criteria for nominations is that one must be a student
enrolled at the University.
"1 don't think a complete overhaul of the budgetary
procedure is called for, but there needs lo be some
noticeable changes," Kelly said.
"I would like the committee to look at the time when
the budget is drawn up," he said. "Money is allocated
too soon alter elections for Finance Committee
members to have a complete knowledge of the
purposes and services various organizations perform."
The committee will hold its first meeting Thursday.
Moss said. The committee must report back to the
CGC by Feb. 10.

Three almost identical complaints filed with University grievance
committees Monday charge that the physical education department
is violating Title IX, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of
Signed by 23 students, taculty and staff members, both men and
women, the grievances state that the physical education department
unequally distributes locker facilities in Woollen Gymnasium.
Men receive access to 85 percent of the lockers, the grievances
state, "in spite of the fact that women physical education students
outnumber men, and women make up 49 percent of the student
Because of the unequal distribution of locker facilities, members of
10 women's athletic teams must carry their equipment to and from
the gym. Only the women's golf team has locker and equipment space
It is easier lor a male who is the husband of a female faculty
member to obtain a locker or basket in Woollen than for a woman
faculty member or a woman student to get one, said Karen Murphy,
an attorney in the Health Education Center.
Murphy's husband. Dan. who signed the grievance amicus, as a
friend of the complainants, has a locker, she said, but neither she,
women students nor athletic team members may get one.
The grievances ask that the male faculty locker room be converted
to a locker room for women by January 1978.
The Student Grievance Committee recommended that change in
1976 as the result of a complaint filed then. The committee
recommended also then that the weight-training room, located next
to the faculty locker room, be converted to a women's locker room.
The latter change was made, but the male faculty locker room
remains all male.
"You must look at the language of Title IX," Murphy said. "The
University was to proceed as 'expeditiously as possible' to make
facilities comparable for men and women."
Murphy said that because the University could easily convert the
faculty locker room but has failed to do so, the University is in
violation of Title IX.
The signers of the grievances said converting the faculty locker
room would not cost much. "All that would need to be done is to put
plywood up over a cage area between the men's locker room and this
room," Murphy said. According to the grievance, the maximum cost
of this change would be $800, based on an estimate by Tom H unt of
Hunt Construction Company in Chapel Hill. The grievances also
state that when more facilities are given women in the new
gymnasium, the plywood can be easily removed and the space
converted back to a man's faculty locker room.
The grievances also outline these complaints:
. There are no women's visiting team lockers, while men's visiting
teams have approximately 184 lockers.
All men students wanting a locker or basket can get one, but
women students cannot.
No women faculty or staff members have access to a locker
room during vacation periods when all sports facilities are closed for
recreational use. Men faculty and staff have used the locker rooms

In varied advisory system
Faculty adviser best known resource
By BERNIE RANSBOTTOM
Editor's Note: The following story is the
second in a three-part series on the advising
and counseling system at UNC,
The advising and counseling resources
available to students at UNC are many and
varied, but the best known resources are
probably the advising systems of the General
College and the College of Arts and
The organization of the General College
and the Arts and Sciences systems are very
similar, but the focuses of the two programs
are different, according to F. W. Vogler,
associate dean of Arts and Sciences.
Vogler and Donald Jicha, associate dean
of the General College, both outlined the
programs of their respective colleges before
the Committee on Academic Advising last
In both cases, college deans ' recruit
advisers from the departments served by the
college. Advisers are almost exclusively
faculty members, and they serve three-year,
Advisers are paid for their eight hours per
week of work in Arts and Sciences and for
their six to seven hours per week of work in
the General College. During preregistration
and registration, General College advisers
work about 30 hours per week, Jicha says.
Arts and Sciences advisers have many
more advisees each than do General College
advisers. Fourteen advisers and two deans in
Arts and Sciences work with an average of
300 to 400 advisees each. Twenty-five
advisers and two deans in the General
Florida newspaper reports
UNC to host Liberty Bowl
By GENE UPCHURCH
A Florida newspaper reported Monday
that North Carolina will be the host team in
the Liberty Bowl Dec. 19 in Memphis.
The Orlando Sentinel Star quoted
"reliable sources" as saying Carolina, now 7-2-1,
going into the Duke game Saturday in
Durham, will receive a bid to the bowl.
A spokesperson at the Sentinel Star said
Monday the sources were "highly reliable"
but would not say who they were or whether
they were connected with the Liberty Bowl.
A. F. Dudley, executive director of the
Liberty Bowl, told the Daily Tar Heel
Monday afternoon that no one in his
organization had said anything about
Carolina in the Liberty Bowl.
"Of course, N orth Carolina is a team we're
quite interested in," Dudley said from his
office in Memphis. "Any report at this time
about which team will be in the Liberty Bowl
would be pure conjecture on the writer's
part. No sources within the Liberty Bowl
would say anything like that. A lot of local
reporters have been calling trying to put
words in our mouths, but there has been no
NCAA regulations prohibit post-season
bowls from making a bid to a team or
announcement about a bid until Nov. 26 at 6
"It's mighty nice to be considered by a
bowl like the Liberty Bowl," UNC Coach
Bill Dooley said Monday. "But the only
bowl we're considering now is the Duke
bowl. If we win that, things will take care of
themselves. It's flattering to be considered."
Dudley said the Liberty Bowl, which is
televised nationally, will have two scouts at
the Duke-Carolina game Saturday. He said
in addition to the Duke-Carolina game it will
scout Nebraska-Oklahoma and Penn State
Pittsburgh. In addition to the report about Carolina in
the Liberty Bowl, the Sentinel Star reported
the Gator Bowl will invite Clemson to its
Dec. 30 game in Jacksonville, Fla. The story
said the Tigers will be invited regardless of
the outcome of their game against South
Carolina this week. Clemson reportedly will
be matched against the loser of the
Nebraska-Oklahoma game. The winner of
that game is host team of the Orange Bowl.
The Sentinel Star quoted a Gator Bowl
source as saying that the selection committee
is no longer considering Florida State
because of that team's Dec. 3 game against
The paper said Louisiana State will go to
the Sun Bowl Dec. 31 in El Paso, Tex.
College handle an average of 125 freshman
and 100 sophomore advisees each.
One Arts and Sciences adviser has 504
advisees this semester, Vogler says. "This
makes it clear that a student must normally
arrange in advance to touch base with his
adviser," he says.
But unlike General College advisees. Arts
and Sciences advisees are never required to
come in for an appointment with their
Freshmen entering the General College
meet with their advisers in large group
sessions the day before registration.
Freshmen then are asked to visit their
advisers about five weeks into the first
semester to discuss their progress and
After this interview, General College
students are required only to visit their
advisers during preregistration to have their
forms approved. These appointments are
scheduled during a one- to two-week period
and last about five minutes.
The services and goals of the General
College and College of Arts and Sciences
advising programs are very dissimilar.
One difference is that Arts and Sciences
advisers, unlike General College advisers, do
not sign preregistration forms this
function is performed by departmental
advisers once the student leaves the General
Because of this system, students in Arts
and Sciences might never meet with their
"A student may stay away for all four
semesters if he wishes," Vogler says. "He'll be
sorry, but he can do it."
If a student does come in to meet with his
adviser, the adviser will help the student fill
out a worksheet listing course he has taken
and the requirements these fulfill and
plotting courses to be scheduled in future
"Since many students never come in to
Arts and Sciences many never have
worksheets filled out for them," Vogler says.
"The burden of responsibility clearly is on
the student to see that he meets graduation
But Vogler also says the main purpose of
the advising system in Arts and Sciences is to
see that students fulfill their requirements for
"We are not departmental advocates."
Vogler says. "Our primary concern is a four
year overview with emphasis on fulfilling
graduation requirements. We depend on the
departments to provide more specialized
expertise, but many departments do not
Vogler says little communication exists
between General College and Arts and
Sciences, but that many Arts and Sciences
advisers are former General College
Arts and Sciences advisers are concerned
mainly with seeing that students fulfill
graduation requirements. General College
advisers are concerned with getting students
preregistered for classes. So where can
students go for career and personal
A number of options are in this area. If the
student has a particularly sympathetic
adviser in General College, Arts or Sciences
or his department, he can try visiting that
adviser during some period other than
registration or preregistration when the
adviser is less busy.
Another resource is the Division of
Student Affairs. Three basic resources are
available for students in this area: Career
Planning and Placement (CP&P), the
University Counseling Center (UCC) and
the Student Mental Health Center.
CP&P is located on the second floor of
Hanes Hall. The purpose of the office is "to
teach students how to get a job rather than
get it for them," according to Jane Kendall, a
CP&P counselor. "If we teach them career
planning skills, then we have offered them a
lot more educationally."
CP&P offers individual counseling, group
counseling, a resource room with
information on such areas as interviewing
and writing resumes, a credentials service
and on-campus interviews with potential
"There are some (undergraduate advisers)
who don't even know we're here, but there
are some who are really trying to learn about
career development themselves or just try to
keep themselves informed so they can refer
students," Kendall says.
CP&P holds training programs for
General College advisers, "but only six out
of about 30 came (to a recent program). We
were very disappointed with the response,"
UCC is closely allied with CP&P.offering
many similar services. Ahjje Lawler of UCC
says the office, located behind the Carolina
Inn in Nash Hall, is staffed by professional

Bicycles must be registered
Students can combat the rising number
of bicycle thefts on campus by registering
their vehicle today and Wednesday,
according to Craig Brown, chairperson of
the student Transportation Commission.
Chapel Hill residents are required to
register their bicycles with local police.
But registration is more than a
requirement: it's also a good idea.
"Bike theft is up 20 percent over this
time last year," Brown said. "Bikes with
stickers are more easily traced, and
stickers act as a deterrent.
Registration will he held today from 1
to 4 p.m. in front of the Carolina Union,
facing the Pit. On Wednesday,
registration will be in front of Chase
Cafeteria from I to 4 p.m.
Registration takes about tie minutes
and costs 50 cents, Brown said. Students
should bring their bikes so the serial
number can be placed on the vehicle.
Capt. Charlie Edmond of the Chapel
Hill Police Department said owners of
recovered bicycles are much easier to
locate if the bike is registered.
"We recover many abandoned bikes
and have to keep them in storage because
we can't locate the owner," Edmond said.
"If the bike is registered, we can just look
in our files."
Brow n thinks bike theft is increasing
because persons are not being careful to
lock their bikes or are not using sturdy
Registration for bicycles presently
listed w ith police is valid through 1978.
