When the Chapel Hill Town
Council meets April 29 to revote on
the noise ordinance amendment
proposed by Student Body President

needed to ensure the amendment's

amendment can also pass if it is
approved twice by a majority.
The first , vote at. the April 13
meeting resulted in a 5-4 approval
ol the amendment, and council
members will vote on the amend-
ment for a second time April 29.

"North Carolina Speaks," a survey
sponsored by Planned Parenthood
of Greater Charlotte, found that a
majority of North Carolinians do not
oppose abortion. Planned Parent
hood officials announced Tuesday.
The survey, conducted by FGl
Research of Chapel Hill, found that
79 percent of North Carolinians
oppose a constitutional amendment
outlawing abortions,, said Jerry
Allen, executive director of Planned

Library.

Endowment Board members who
attend Friday's trustee meeting to
address the issue of divestment.

Bailey said, about 40 students
attended the meeting. Student sup
port at the next meeting is very
important, he said. "Now that the
town knows the ordinance might
pass, they might come out in full
force."
Bailey said he would explain the
reasons for the student-written
amendment to the council before the
April 29 meeting. "The amendment
is not an attempt to make Chapel
Hill a party town," he said. "It is
just an attempt to please both sides."
Council member Nancy Preston
Said Tuesday that the revote
depended on the kind of letters and
phone calls the council received from
Parenthood of Greater Charlotte.
Allen said that 79 percent of North
Carolinians favored state-funded
abortions for single women with
annual incomes of less than $4,226.
"This was much higher than we
expected," he said.
Overall, 85 percent of the people
surveyed approved sex education in
the schools. Black Americans, with
93 percent in favor, were the strong
est proponents of sex education.

Group members said they were
calling for Ragsdale's resignation
because they had discovered several
"conflicts of interest" that interfere
with his position as a UNC trustee.
AASG member Cindy Hahamo

Ragsdale's stance on divestment, his
law firm clients that have holdings
in South Africa and a racist clause
attached to the ownership of his

Modern features and possible
office space will be added to Old
East and Old West residence halls
to update the buildings, according
to members of the Old East Old

natives for renovating the
buildings.
But at the student-faculty
group's last meeting this year, no
decision Was made about who will
live in the buildings after the
renovations are completed.
The task force will meet again
next semester.
- "We talked about dedicating
maybe one, two or three rooms
interest in the results," said Richard
Hartney, executive director of N.C.
Right to Life, a group opposed to
abortion. "Planned Parenthood is
our nation's largest single provider
of abortions. Its clinics earn 15 to
20 million dollars for performing
approximately 90,000 abortions
each year."
Hartney said the questions had
limited the situations too severely.

The nine-member Carolina Union
search committee announced Tues
day the appointment of Associate
Carolina Union Director Archie
Copeland to director of the Carolina
Union.
Edith Wiggins, the associate vice
chancellor for the Division of Stu
dent Affairs, said Copeland was
chosen from among 60 applicants
from across the nation.
"Archie is well-known as one who
has made unique contributions to the
out-of-the-classroom learning exper
iences of our students," Wiggins said.
"With his leadership, the Union will
continue this very important
tradition."
Copeland will officially replace
retiring Union Director Howard
Henry on July I. Henry has worked
with the Union since 1958.
As director. Copeland will be
responsible for operating the Union,
directing programming and super
vising the staff.
"I'm really glad that the search is
finally over," Copeland said. "Now
1 can go ahead and start getting down
to business."
The search process began in the
fall when tjie search committee
began advertising nationally for the
position. From the 60 applications
received, the committee narrowed
the number down to five. After
interviewing the five applicants, the
committee asked two of them to

bility of creating an honors office

students interested in the honors
program," he said.

"The only problem with that

been a constitutional amendment
proposed to ban abortions, regard

The majority of people who
classified themselves as born-again

tians support the availability of legal
abortion, as well as state funding of
abortion, sex education and family

The clause was attached to the
house when Ragsdale moved into it
in 1975, Hahamovitch said, and he
has had plenty of time to remove
the clause.
Ragsdale should resign to "pre

University," she said.

Copeland was chosen from the two
finalists.
Donald Boulton, vice chancellor
for student affairs, said he was very
pleased by the search process.
"I'm excited about all of the efforts
that went into the search process,"
Boulton said.
Mark Appelbaum, a psychology
professor, served as chairman of the
search committee, which was com
posed of Wiggins, Boulton, former
Carolina Union President Jeannie
Mitchell, two faculty members arid
four students.
When going through the applica
tions, the committee looked for
experience, leadership and the ability
to work with students, Boulton said.
Copeland's experience stood but
more than any of the others', he said.
"Archie's experience with the
Carolina Union really helped him a
lot," Boulton said.
Copeland began his work with the,
Carolina Union as a graduate assis-;
tant in 1961. He was promoted to;

becoming the director."
Also, basements will be exca-t

Weight rooms, laundry rooms,
kitchens and study rooms will be
