UNC Trustees debate, approve CoPIRG contract Mon., May 30,1977 GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE 3 A light colored, sraoolh-tex- energy and keeps a house cool- tured roof absorbs less solar er than a dark colored roof. ByKONSTEWART Tribune Stall Writer Debating nearly two hours Friday before approving it, University of Northern Colorado's board of trustees finally okayed a contract with Colorado Public Interest Research Group (CoPIRG) under which the university will collect student contributions to the organization. The arrangement, much the same as the university and CoPIRG have operated under for a year, has the university collecting an optional $1.50 per quarter fee from students for CoPIRG's operation. At issue, however, is whether the university's involvement with CoPIRG amounts to state subsidization of a private agency. Some trustees apparently think it does. According to Al Barnharl, vice president for administrative services, it costs UNC about $1,130 a year to ask students if they want to pay the fee, collect it if they do, and code the computer to keep track of it. Barnhart said his figure was merely an estimate, based on an estimate of 10 seconds per student per quarter that it takes a clerk to ask a student if they wish to pay the fee. He said he also estimated it it takes five seconds per student per quarter to code the response, and about $400 in computer time to keep track of it. But Dr. Richard Bond, UNC president, said the university shouldn't just tabulate costs of servicing CoPIRG without tabulating benefits. He said the group each year plants about $700 worth of flowers around the campus, using volunteer help. Mrs. Florence Winograd agreed. "Being the Greeley trustee, 1 keep in touch with CoPIRG and know what it does," she said. "There's a definite benefit to UNC and the entire community." Currently UNC charges for administrative costs two per cent of the amount collected for CoPIRG. But Barnhart said this amounts to only about $233. This sparked a discussion about how the costs and the benefits should be accounted for. Trustee Harlan Bryant said he wanted it clear in the books that UNC wasn't subsidizing CoPIRG by collecting its fees without reimbursement. He said a tradeoff of collection services for flowers wouldn't be good accounting practice. The board finally approved a wording that has the university collecting the optional student payment and CoPIRG paying the "net" administrative cost. This is defined as the actual administrative cost less the benefits from CoPIRG for projects the administration has authorized. The university, however, can assess for administrative costs no more than 10 per cent of the amount collected and CoPIRG will pay no less than two per cent of the amount collected. CoPIRG last year was involved in a variety of activities ranging from an investigation of practices at state vehicle inspection stations to a housing guide for students. Its investigation of vehicle inspection practices led to the suspension of licenses from several Greeley-area stations. And By The Way . . . Can an/ma/s predict quakes? ByltOBEKTCKAUHE TOKYO (UPI) - For those who worry about earthquakes a Japanese scientist offers this advice: keep a pet yak. Any time the yak refuses to eat, begin earthquake countenneasures. A yak on a hunger strike is a sign that a quake may be only a few hours off. Animals often do odd things before earthquakes, says Tsuneji Rikitake, a scientist at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. He has just finished compiling 157 case histories of strange behavior of animals before big quakes in Japan, China and Europe during the last 300 years. The yak, a Tibetan ox, is only one of several animals that may be able to anticipate quakes, Hikitake says. .Cats, mice, caged birds ai\d even tigers in zoos all have histories of acting up before the ground begins to tremble. In China, local governments keep several types of animals under observation as an earthquake f o r e c a s t i n g measure, Rikitake says. Detection of strange animal behavior is credited with saving lives in a 1976 quake in China's Fukien province. Rikitake theorizes that some animals may have a built-in ability to detect slight changes in the earth's magnetism. Unusual movements o f ' fish ,3150 have been a tip-off of an approaching quake. Rikitake says that just before the Icmblor that devastated Tokyo and Yokohama in 1923, catfish were seen leaping from rivers like trout, something Ihcy normally don't do. He notes several cases in which mice and birds disappeared from a locality just before a major earthquake. Cats deserted a number of villages in northern Italy two or three hours before they were hit by a severe quake in 1975. In other cases, caged birds begin flying violently and beating against the bars of their cages. Rikitake said he so far has no systematic way of using animals for earthquake warning. He said his completion of case histories was made to show the need for more research on the subject. THE FAMILY CIRCUS.
