The UNC department of housing has
officially announced an 18 percent in
crease in dormitory room rent for the
1984-85 year. The increase is the second
substantial hike in two academic years.
Wayne T. Kuncl, director1 of housing,
attributed the rent increase to the rein
statement of deferred maintenance pro
jects on residence halls, increases in the
salaries and wages of housing
employees, debt service for the new
residence hall and the possibility of a
new phone system.
Individual room rates will range from
a low of $494 for double occupancy to a
high of $814 for single dependency. The
rate will depend on the building and
furnishings of where the student lives,
officials said. This year's low is $419
with a high of $690.

Kuncl said that he hoped next fall's
ruierease:jwould be the last time major
rent hikes were needed.
"We've had a two-year problem of
larger-than-normal rent increases,"
Kuncl said. "Any increase in the next
years would mostly reflect the inflation
that affects the nation as a whole."
The 18 percent increase marks the se
cond year of the housing department's
planned realignment of revenues and
expenses, Kuncl said. Much of the cost
. increase will come from maintenance
projects that have been deferred in past
Installation of safety railings and new
fire alarm systems in residence halls
along with some roof replacement work
on Hinton James are among the
maintenance projects the rent hike will
pay for, Kuncl said.
He also said the housing department
was paying old debts for facilities now
In addition, the rent increase will
begin the creation of a debt service to
start paying off the debt for the new

Jeff Hiday defeated Christine Manuel
by almost 300 votes Tuesday to win the
race for Daily Tar Heel editor.
Out of the 3,350 votes cast for those
candidates on the ballot, the unofficial
totals gave Hiday 1,749 votes, followed
by Manuel with 1460 and Frank
Winstead with 141.
"I'm very relieved," Hiday said
moments after the totals were announced
in Gerrard Hal Tuesday night. "I have to
admit it, I did get nervous today because I
knew this was it. But right now, as the old
saying goes, I can't believe it!"
Hiday cited organization as a major
reason for his success.
"I've got to give credit to David
Balmer, my campaign manager," Hiday
said. "He's incredibly energetic, a go-get-'em
kind of guy and the mastermind
"There were good friends of mine that
stayed out until four o'clock in the morn
ing putting up posters. There were hun
dreds of people who were very key, just
an incredibly enthusiastic organization."
Meanwhile, Manuel attributed her loss
to two key points low voter turnout
and The Daily Tar Heel's coverage of the
"A lot of the press in the Tar Heel hurt
me," Manuel said. "Inaccuracies in the
stories and in the editorials that I think
really hurt. I think the inaccurate press is
something I couldn't control.
"(Also) the lack of South Campus not
voting as much as before hurt me.
"We're proud of what we've done, and
the ideas we brought out," she said. "I"
hope Jeff looks at my ideas, and I wish
him the best of luck."
Manuel said she would attend tonight's
meeting of the Elections Board, at which
time the certification of the election will
be decided. However, she said she did not

Although the University may even
tually go to the proposed Centrex phone
system, Kuncl said the immediate and
inexpensive answer may be the installa
tion of modular jacks in dorm rooms so
that students could continue to lease a
phone or even purchase one.
"If we were to get into a different
phone system, we would want to plan it
so it would be paid off over a series of
years, much like the construction of a
new building," Kuncl said.
Residence Hall Association President
Mark Stafford said the University need-.
ed to move to the Centrex system, but
not for about five years. Stafford said
the wait would give the Department of
Housing time to build up a cash reserve
to help fund the system.
Stafford also said it would be unfair
for next year's dorm residents to pay for
phones students would be using for the
next 20 years.
"Although I do not like it (the in
crease), I see it as a necessary evil,"
Stafford said. "Housing has to be self
funding, and they can prove on paper
that they need this money." .
"One of my goals is to maintain our
rates at a level so students can afford to

Paul Parker, Mark Stafford, Jennie Edmundson and Tom

night in the Great Hall.
Student Supreme Court Justice J.B. Kelly administered the
oath of office to the foursome. The parting presidents offered
final remarks before the installation of their successors, except
for GPSF President Chris Capel, who was absent from the

RHA President Mark Dalton commented briefly then handed
the gavel to Stafford.
"I can't stand up here right now and make promises for the
next 12 months," Stafford said. But he outlined three goals he
would work toward in the coming year.
"As long as one student on this campus is involuntarily closed
out on this campus, there is a housing shortage," Stafford said.
He promised he would work to alleviate the shortage.
"We have a committee on integration on campus; we have a
task force on integration on campus; but we don't have an in
tegrated campus," he said. Stafford vowed to meet with Black
Student Movement President Sherrod Banks to remedy this pro
blem. Finally, Stafford said he would work to reduce noise, van

Turnout was lower than expected
because of stormy weather. In reports
from 247 of the state's 298 precincts, with
75 percent of the expected turnout, the
Democratic totals were:
Hart, 29,843, or 41 percent.
Mondale, 20,240, or 28 percent.
Glenn, 8,702, 12 percent.
McGovern, 4,224, 6 percent.

kept the lead, including delegates already
chosen from outside New Hampshire. He

Terrell said: "We are not an undergraduate college. We are a
university dedicated to research and the ideals of higher educa
tion." One-third of the student body is in the graduate school,
he reminded the audience.
Student Body President Kevin Monroe punctuated his fare
well address with advice for Parker.
"If your prof gives you an F on a midterm you missed, don't
bargain with your basketball tickets or the promise of a pay
raise," he said jokingly.
"Don't tell the campus police you parked on the sidewalk to
personally protest the parking situation on campus."
Monroe defended the accomplishments of his administration.
"Who is to judge effectiveness?" he questioned. "While dif
ferent areas may be seen by those outside of the student body
president, only the student body president can judge the effec
tiveness of each."
Parker outlined his cabinet, drawn specifically from members
, of the executive branch of Student Government. The cabinet
will be composed of Parker, the student body treasurer, the ex
ecutive branch press secretary, five executive vice presidents,
project chairs and special assistants to Parker.
"The entire cabinet will serve as a think tank," he said.
"When a problem comes up, they will determine whether to ap
point a short-term committee or a long-term task force."
Parker has selected his executive vice presidents Maria
Baxter, Darryl Hendricks, Greg Hecht, Mark Scurria, David
Schnorrenberg and Garret Weyr but said that project board
appointments would not be finalized until after Spring Break.
"We've started business in a lot of areas already," Parker
said. He said work was underway to obtain longer operating
hours in the newly opened Walter Davis Library, hiring quotas
in Student Stores and on-campus food services and field space
for recreational activites. Parker also said he planned to re
distribute office space in the Student Union to make it more
