Off-campus library offers PopScan
By LYNN WILL1FORD
Need to know something anything
about the world's population?
You don't have to look far. One of the
world's largest collections of population
information, the Carolina Population
Center, is on the fifth floor of the
Northwestern Mutual Life building at
University Square East.
While the library specializes in the socio
economic aspects of population, it also
offers a broad range of practical information
on contraception, abortion and sex-related
The CPC Library contains over 40,000
items, including books, journals, articles,
reprints and unpublished population
conference papers and reports. It has a
wealth of materials on developing countries
as well as what is happening in the United
Pat Shipman, head librarian, said,
"Anyone on this campus who is interested in
population and who isn't these days is
encouraged to use or facilities. This includes
undergraduates as well as graduate students,
faculty and staff."
The only requirement for checking out
circulating materials is that the user fill out a
reader registration card. Renewals may be
made by phone. Non-circulating documents
can be photocopied for patrons at the library
for 10 cents a page.
The entire holdings of the CPC Library
are on microfiche. Copies of the microfiche
catalog are also located at Wilson Library's
BASS room, the Undergraduate Library
and the Health Sciences Library.
A computerized search service called
PopScan also is offered by the library to
compile bibliographies of all holdings on the
reader's chosen subject, within 24 hours if
necessary. The special rate, effective this fall
for all UNC users, is $7.00 per new search
plus 10 cents a page for xeroxing. The
regular rate is $20 per new search plus'
xeroxing costs. Already completed
PopScans are available at 10 cents per page.
"We have over 300 of these PopScans on
file and they can be used in the library for
free," Shipman said.
Reference assistance is available for any
research needs. "We get quite a range of
questions covering the entire spectrum of the
population field," Shipman said. "One day a
student will come in for demographic
information on Kenya. The next day the
National Institute for Community
l If 111 HP
Development will call long-distance and ask
for a PopScan on male contraceptive
methods - rush. We easily oblige in both
"The only area of the field we don't cover
is the biomedical part, for which we refer
people to the Health Sciences Library."
Two reading rooms are available for in
house study. Free library materials, most of
them current, are there for the taking.
CPC Library hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5:30
p.m. Monday through Friday. If funds
allow, it will also open in the evenings later
this fall. The library's phone number is 933
3081. Removing leaves
may take 3 months
The grounds department has begun
removing leaves from the campus, but the
process may take as long as three months,
says Larry Trammel, campus superintendent
for the grounds department.
The main reason leaf removal takes so
long. Trammel says, is the ineffectiveness of
the mechanical leaf-pickers on wet leaves.
"All the trees don't drop their leaves at one
time, either," Trammel says.
Once the leaves are gathered. Trammel
says, they will be composted and returned to
campus to be used as fertilizer.
Trammel says the grounds department
also will remove as many as eight trees from
the arboretum as part of a renovation
The grounds department is working in
cooperation with the botany department,
Trammel says, to remove old and rotting
trees from the arboretum. This will allow
more sunlight to reach the other plants.
Trammel says some trees will be removed
to reduce the duplication of species in the
arboretum. "You don't need a half doen of
the same thing to do research teaching," he

If you are interested in math, physics or engineering,
the Navy has a program you should know about. ,
It's called the NUPOC-Collegiate Program (NUPOC
is short for Nuclear Propulsion Officer Candidate), and if
you qualify it can pay you as much as $611 a month for
the remainder of your senior year. Then after 16 weeks of
Officer Candidate School, you will receive an additional
year of advanced technical education, education that
would cost thousands in a civilian school, but in the
Navy we pay you. And at the end of the year of training,
you'll receive a $3,000 cash bonus.
It isn't easy. Only one of every six applicants will be
selected, and there are fewer than 300 openings. But
those who make it find themselves in one of the most
elite engineering training programs anywhere. With
unequalled hands-on responsibility, a $24,000 salary in
four years, plus travel, medical benefits and education
For more details on this program, ask your
placement officer when a Navy representative will be on
campus, or call the Officer Program Office listed below;

With temperatures getting colder, activities such as this will disappear from campus.
The warmer weather of the past few weeks, though, encouraged studying outside, so

blue Lt oss rate
hike due to UNC
UNC students with Blue Cross and Blue
Shield insurance coverage had better get
used to paying those higher monthly
E. C. Thompson, vice president of Blue
Cross and Blue Shield's services division,
said recently that his corporation was forced
to raise rates or face massive losses.
During the last school year, student claims
amounted to $500,000 compared to only
around $400,000 received in fees. This loss,
added with the previous years' deficits and
expenses, amounts to a $230,000 loss,
according to Thompson.
The new rates set in August are over $6 a
month more than those of last year for UNC
students. This compares with only around a
$3 per month increase for a parent with one
child over the same time.
Thompson said more students than ever
are making claims for psychiatric care, and
he cited this as a significant factor in the rate
increase. Blue Cross and Blue Shield figures
the psychiatric claims alone at more than
$100,000 during the past year.
Thompson also hinted the rates will
continue rising until student claims go down.
"We regret the necessity of increasing our
rates. Our corporation has experienced
heavy losses on this group (UNC), and there
is no alternative," he said.

Gov. Arnold Palmer?
RALEIGH - Some state Republicans
might be willing to offer to back famed golfer
Arnold Palmer for governor of North
Carolina in 1980, but he isn't interested.
"I have a lot of friends in North Carolina,
a home and a business in Charlotte, but
personally I'm not sure that political office is
what I want," Palmer said.
"I might have kiddingly said something
about it, but please, let's not get carried
away," Palmer said in a telephone interview
from his home in Orlando, Fla.
"Many people have suggested that I
consider it," Palmer said, "but at the
moment it's not very likely.

which he stresses and considers to be the
most important part of the game.
"Of the three elements -- offense, defense
and rebounding our defense was the best
of the three," Smifh said, "lt made our
offense, but we can't depend on if entirely.";
Dudley Bradley, who started at forward
opposite O'Koren (Rich Yonakor started at
center with Tom Zaliagiris in the backcourt
with Ford), did not score in the game but
added valuable defense with five steals.
Smith used every player in the game and
substituted liberally in the second half. Al
Wood looked to be the most advanced
freshman, scoring six points, three assists
and three steals in the 21 minutes he played.
Jeff - Wolf and Geff Crompton provided
backup at the center spot, giving that
position good depth with Wolfs shooting
ability and the huge Crompton's imposing
defense and bullet passing.
