changes to take effect July 1
By ART WOODRUFF

The ban on mopeds on University sidewalks and new
parking zones will take effect July 1 said Ben Callahan,
the assistant director of security and traffic at UNC in an
The new moped regulation was instituted because of
complaints by pedestrians that they had been hit or
nearly hit by mopeds on sidewalks, Callahan said. The
University got no reports of any injuries, however, he
Mopeds can still be pedaled on the sidewalks, but they
cannot be motor-driven, he said.
To make sure students know about the new rule, vio
lators will be warned and fliers explaining the rule will be
placed on mopeds parked on campus, Callahan said.
The fine for the violation is $10 and University Police
officers will issue citations after the first few weeks the
regulation is in effect, he said.
Mopeds may continue to be parked at bike racks, he
said. The traffic office is also planning to put racks
where mopeds can be driven to them, he said, and there
are plans to put some kind of racks at motorcycle park
ing areas so that scooters and small motorcycles can be
Callahan said he did not know when the racks would
be placed at the motorcycle parking areas.
Anything that has a license plate on it cannot be park
ed at a bike rack, Callahan said. They must have a per
mit and be parked in a motorcycle parking area, he said.
In Chapel Hill, mopeds are treated as bicycles and
they are allowed on sidewalks everywhere except along
Franklin Street between Columbia and Henderson
Streets, said Chapel Hill Police Master Officer Gregg
The automobile parking changes will be in the Connor
Dormitory and the Tennis Court Drive parking areas
that were part of the N-4 zone, Callahan said. They will
become part of the employee N-4 zone.
The change is necessary because the Carroll Hall park
ing lot will be closed in August for construction of the
new computer science building, he said.
Students will lose 135 spaces in the N-4 zone, Calla
han said. There were 349 student spaces during the first
summer session and 392 student permits were sold for
them, he said.
For the second summer session there will be 214 stu
dent spaces and there will probably be about 250 permits
sold, he said.
"Students will not lose any permits during summer
school, they just won't be as convenient," Callahan
Until the Carroll Hall lot is closed, temporary permits
will be issued to visitors and to employees who do not
have a permit, he said. Employees who have N-3 per
mits will also be allowed to use the lot, he said.

Employment rising nationwide ; Triangle area
By JAMAL EL-HINDI
Tar Heel Staff Writer
Employment is up nationwide
and the Triangle Area is no excep
tion. Graduates from UNC in 1984
and 1985 will have the best chances
of landing jobs in eight years, said
Henry Turlington manager of Man
power Temporary Services in Ra
leigh. While Manpower's national fig
ures show that 31 percent of busi
nesses surveyed plan to hire more
workers in the coming fall, the fig
ures for Durham-Chapel Hill and
' Raleigh are 47 percent and 39 per
Manpower conducts quarterly
surveys of 11,700 businesses in 354
cities to project America's need for
labor, Turlington said.
"Nationwide people are hiring,
even more so in our area," he said.
"As much as the new businesses are
coming, there is a lot of action in the
Triangle and the labor market really
Marcia Harris, director of the
UNC Career Planning and Place
ment Service said that opportunities
for Chapel Hill graduates were bet
ter than they had been in past years.
"The economy has picked up,"
she said. "And our office has in
creased its outreach to employers."
1,000 more interviews were con
ducted on campus last year than the
year before, she said.
While the employment outlook is
bright, many students who gradu
ated in May won't find jobs until
September, Harris said. She said
some students had jobs before grad
uation and others could search for
nine months before finding work.
"Averages are meaningless," she
said, because individual circum
stances vary so widely.
Harris said that some students,
because of their backgrounds,
would find work more quickly than
others. "Generally, students with
backgrounds in business, computer
science, chemistry and the health
sciences will find jobs in a shorter
period of time," she said. But she
said that other students could find
jobs too, they might just have to
work harder at it.
Turlington said that the biggest
demands for temporary labor were
in the clerical, light construction,
designing and engineering profes
sions as well as in the rapidly ex
panding labor market for data pro
cessing. He said that a number of
recent graduates take on temporary
work until they find permanent
Other students are also taking ad
vantage of the hiring boom, he said.
"We have graduate students come
in for summer work so they can re
turn to school in the fall," he said.
Harris said that while the place
ment office was receiving some in
formation from recent graduates
about their employment status, she
said surveys would be mailed out in
September. "We've found that
many students require three to five
months to find a job," she said.
"Sending out questionnaires during
the summer is a needless expense
and can be frustrating for people
still looking for employment."
During the last hiring period,
UNC had a 15 percent increase in
the number of visits from corporate
recruiters while many schools faced
declines, Harris said. "I think em
ployers are looking more at the time
and expense involved in visiting
campuses," she said.
"They feel they'll benefit more by
concentrating on fewer campuses
where they are more likely to meet
individuals with the qualities they're
looking for," she said. "I've had
employers tell me that they're cut
ting the number of schools they visit
from 40 to 20, but Carolina is in the
top 20," she said.
Reductions in the number of cam
puses recruiters visit can actually
help UNC graduates, Harris said.
"They still want to hire the same
amount of people, so the job offers
to Carolina graduates might in
crease." Local reaction to the outlook on
employment varied with personal
circumstances. Lisa Eveleigh from
Gastonia graduated from Chapel
Hill in May with a degree in English
and is now waitressing at a local res
taurant. "I haven't looked for a job yet,
because I'm going to Europe in Oc
tober," she said.
Lisa said that as a liberal arts ma
jor her choices for a profession were
open-ended. "A variety of profes
sional graduate schools are open to
the liberal arts major, for example
law, MBA or journalism," she said.
"As for the immediate job market, I
feel that most businesses need to be
persuaded that they can use an En
