6 The Daily Tar Heel Wednesday, January 11, 1978
Fee increase in effect
The $2.50-per-semester increase in student
activity fees that was approved by the
student body last fall takes effect this
The UNC Board of Governors
unanimously approved the fee hike on Dec.
5. The board's approval was the final step in
the process of raising activity fees.
With the increase, undergraduate students
will pay $11.50 per semester and graduate
students $9.50 per semester in activity fees.
Of these fees, 33 percent is automatically
channeled to the Carolina Union and 16
percent to the Daily Tar Heel. The remaining
funds are allocated to student organizations
by the Campus Governing Council.
The fee increase could not have gone into
effect this semester without a directive from
Chancellor N. Ferebee Taylor postponing
the tuition and fees billing date for two
weeks. Taylor decided to delay the billing
date after meeting with student leaders,
including Student Body President Bill Moss,
CGC Speaker Chip Cox, and Daily Tar Heel
editor Greg Porter.

"Bill Moss, Chip Cox and I presented a
, report to the Chancellor on the necessity for
the fee increase," Porter said Tuesday. "We
merely explained that the need was such that
the fees had better start coming in in the
spring semester, or a lot of organizations
would begin to falter including the paper.
"Chancellor Taylor was very helpful and
able to postpone the billing he could've
rejected it because it came up at the last
minute, but he didn't. He was very open
minded." - HOWARD TROXI.tR

Financial aid checks
If you're a student on financial aid, secretaries like this one will
be giving out your checks within the next week in Vance Hall.
Maybe you'll be one of the lucky students who will receive the
maximum number of five checks and laugh all the way to
Bynum and then to the bank. Staff photo by Mike Sneed.

The Student Aid Office handles all
financial assistance offered at the

University funds, federal funds, College
Foundation loans and hundreds of
grants from outside donors. One
student may receive as many as five
checks, with an average of two checks
William Geer, director of student aid,
said that although $4 million was a lot of
money, the University needed more for
financial aid. "If the University is to
fulfill its purpose of offering a good
education to bright young citizens, it
must have more funds to open its doors
wider for the admission of those young
people who are bright and ambitious
but are accidentally poor," he said.

of union meet
By MEREDITH CREWS
Chancellor N. Fercbcc Taylor received a
letter Tuesday signed by 27 faculty members
protesting the structure of a unionism and
wage conference held Oct. 14 at UNC.
The letter stated that the conference,
sponsored by the UNC department of
economics and funded by Burlington
Industries, conveyed an impression that the
University "opposes trade unionism in the
state of North Carolina."
In addition, the letter stated that a
representative of the state's central labor
body was denied recognition by the chair
during the question-and-answer period.
'"The reasoning behind the Tetter was that
the conference was presumably called as an
academic examination of unions in North
Carolina," said Stephen L. Darwall,
assistant professor in UNC's department of
philosophy and one of the letter signers. "But
the speakers were stacked against unions.
"It is clear the department of economics
decided unions were of dubious value for
North Carolina and came out on the side of
big business against unions."
Joan W. Scott, professor in UNC's
department of history, also signed the letter
and said unionism needed to be thoroughly
"I was distrubed that it was one-sided,"
Scott said. "Burlington Industries used the
University's aura of respectability for a one
Darwall said the conference could be an
unfortunate blow to the union movement in
"For the major economic department in
the state to believe that the state should not
have unions could have unfortunate
implications," he said.
"In our view, working people are badly
enough off without the University and
Burlington Industries collaborating on a
conference that purports to show the evils of
unions in North Carolina," Darwall said.
"North Carolina is 50th in union
representation in the nation and 43rd or 44th
in per capita income."
Although Darwall said the letter did not
include a protest against criticism by some
state legislators of a proposed union
program at North Carolina Central
University in Durham, he feared the
criticism might lead to a loss of funding.
"We view it (the criticism) as part of the
same attitude that would repress the right of
workers to organize," he said.
The focus of the NCCU program,
supported by Gov. Jim Hunt, would be to
train people who work with unions.
"The NCCU program is a modest
proposal, but it may die in the legislature
because of hostility to unions," Darwall said.
The proposal, which would establish a
Center for Labor Education and Research at
NCCU, is being considered by the planning
committee of the UNC Board of Governors:
