New link to be used
for emergency needs
Construction on the $l.8-million
Hillsborough water pipeline began on
schedule this week despite rainy
weather, according to Orange Water
and Sewer Authority (OWASA)
Executive Director Everett Billingsley.
"They've already started digging on
the Hillsborough end," he said.
Construction began Monday.
The pipeline, which will supply the
emergency water needs of Chapel Hill
and Carrboro during the next several
years, will be used only when the level of
University Lake is sufficiently low to
warrant such emergency use, he said.
The pipeline will have a capacity of 2
million gallons per day and is scheduled
to be completed in 90 days. In order to
take advantage of a 30 percent grant and
70 percent loan from the federal
government to fund the project, the
construction must be completed by
The agreement between OWASA and
Hillsborough on the pipeline was
reached last August, but awarding of
bids and the final contract were not
agreed upon until recently. The T. A.

Editor's Note: This is the fifth in a
series of articles examining race
relations on the UNC campus.
Chancellor N. Ferebee Taylor has
publicly committed himself to the goa'l
of increasing the number of black
students at the University, but until the
pool of black applicants becomes larger,
the number admitted as freshmen is not
likely to increase appreciably.
More black high school seniors
applied to UNC for admission as
freshmen last fall than ever before, but
the total number of black student
applications was still only 658.
That compares to a total of 320 black
applicants in 1970, two years after the
Faculty Council passed the Dixon
Resolution, which expressed support
for increasing black enrollment here,
and one year after the admissions office
hired its first full-time minority
Of the 658 black students who applied
for admission to the UNC freshman
class of 1977, about half 359 were
offered adm ission, and about two-thirds
of those 223 enrolled.

applicants is one of tne main concerns of

Lou Holtz, former head football

Former U.S. Treasury Secretary
William E. Simon was also scheduled to
speak but was unable to attend due to
poor weather in New York.
Holtz said that while he sometimes
does not understand Helms' position on
certain issues, he does not always have
the facts that the senator has. Holtz
praised Helms for doing what he thinks
is best for the people.

the Panama Canal controversy.
When asked if Holtz supported
ratification of the treaty. Holt
explained, "1 did before 1 talked to him
Helms called the proposed treaty a
"giveaway" and sounded confident that
the Senate will block its ratification.
"We have more than enough votes to
block the treaty," Helms maintained.
The senator, one of the most vocal
opponents of the Panama Canal treaty,
said there is a good chance the treaty will
not even come up for a vote next year.
Nobody in the Senate wants to vote on
it, Helms said.
While many proponents of the canal
treaty have said it is necessary to avoid
some kind of major confrontation in the
future, Helms said he did not foresee
any major problems developing over
failure to sign a new treaty. Helms said
he did not foresee a "Vietnam situation"
developing in Panama.
President Carter insists that the canal
is "absolutely defensible," Helms said.
Helms predicted that he also will get
political support in his campaign from
the state's approximately 400 high
schools .four-fifths of which he says
have sizeable black populations.
In January, a newly created
admissions staff position will be filled by
someone who will work with Rustin on
minority recruitment. The position is
temporary until June but may become
full-time if funding is available.
"You need more than one person in
this particular position," Rustin says.
Since he joined the admissions staff in
1975, he has recommended in annual
reports to the admissions director that

Board remov es Gould
from Graphics position
By KOBFRT THOMASON
The Board of Directors, of Student
Graphics Inc.. a printing shop funded by
the CGC, removed Stephen T. Gould
from his position as chairperson,
president and general manager of the
corporation at a special meeting
Wednesday night despite Gould's
absence from that meeting.
Members of the board said Gould was
dismissed as an officer and an employee
of the corporation because Student
Graphics lost money under his
management. Gould has said that in
certain months a loss is to be expected,
and that accounting procedures made
other months look unprofitable.
Rebecca Stroud, executive assistant
of Student Graphics, was named acting
general manager until a new manager
could be hired. The board agreed to
advertise for a new manager in
December and January.
In a regular meeting Thursday, the
board amended its action to honor
Gould's contract through Jan. 2, 1978 so
that Gould could meet eligibility
requirements for unemployment
compensation. The original action was
to have terminated Gould's contract
today, with 30 days severance pay.

has endorsed Sen. Jesse Helms for
reelection, praised the senator for doing

said he expects former President Gerald

Kim Wickes, a blind evangelist from

musical performance during the dinner
for Helms. Helms introduced her at the
press conference, noting that she had

New Hope Conference nixed

Plans for a 70-member conference on
black-white relations at UNC have been
scrapped for this scmeslcr, according to
Greg Underwood, a member of the
conference's planning committee.
The proposed location for the weekend
conference, which was being arranged by
Student Government and the Office of

"Right now. the conference is officially
postponed." Underwood said Tuesday.
"We're looking to see if there would be
interest in the conference." Underwood
declined to speculate on when or if the
conference would be rescheduled.
Originally set for Oct. 28 through 30, the
New Hope Conference was postponed
because of the lack of participation by
blacks. Conference planners said the lack of
participation was due to a conflict with the
Black Student Movement (BSM)
Coronation Ball, but BSM chairperson
Byron Horton disagreed.
"Blacks did not attend the conference, not
because of the ball," Horton said, "but
because the BSM had never been contacted
