As a student financed, nonprofit organization, the Colorado PIRG at UNC (COPIRG)works to protect the consumer and his environment. "We're a constructive offshoot of the demonstrations and social interest of the 1960s," said UNC COPIRG Regional Director Jim Sobota. The most significant service of the COPIRG is the recently installed Hotline, which permits people to file complaints against corporations or businesses by telephone. As the only service of its type Flags, stereo stolen The thefl of two flags from a flagpole and a stereo system from a church were the objects of investigations by Greeley police Wednesday. James Smith, pastor of the First Covenant Church, 803 10th Ave., luiil Hie pulicii lie arrived at the church at 8 a.m. Wednesday to discover someone had burglarized and ransacked the church, stealing several items. Although there were no signs of forcible entry to the church, someone apparently used a screwdriver to pry open a file cabinet and an office door. The office and other rooms had been ransacked, police said and several items were thrown around the interior of the building. Taken in the theft were two stereo speakers, a stereo system including an AM-FM radio and tape cassette combination, and $20 in cash. There was about $100 damage to the building, according to police. At 10:15p.m. Wednesday, the U.S. and Colorado flags were stolen from a flagpole at the- corner of 9th Avenue and 9th Street. Custodians at the Weld County Courthouse told police they saw two youths cut the ropes on the flagpole and remove the flags. The two youths then left in a car with nut-of-stale license plates. The flags, owned by the local Veterans of Foreign Wars, are worth $30 each. YOUNG SKYD1VBRS ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP Central High School boasts a club which is rather unusual for a high school: a sport /arachuting club. The organizer of the club is Central's social worker, Ken Neustel. He is a United Slates Parachute Association instructor and has been (raining coordinator for Minnesota Skydivers for the past five years. Students need parpnlnl permission to take jumps. So far, three of five students in the club have obtained permission. in .the nation, the Hotline revived student interest in COPIRG. The organization had dwindled in effectiveness since its creation two years ago, said Sobota. "The need for student volunteers to man the hotline, and the creation of an accredited internship for students working in the COPIRG office sparked student interest," said Hotline Director Nancy Shockley. Students and consumers grew more interested as it became evident (hat COPIRG could correct the abuses which consumers have had to take. An important COPIRG victory occurred when 35 Greeley residents filed complaints against Mountain Bell Telephone. The complaints charged that Bell demanded additional deposit when consumers made more long distance calls than agreed upon at the time of phone installation, said Sobota. COPIRG investigated and found Mountain Bell's deposits to be in violation of Colorado's Utilities Regulations. As a result, the deposits were reduced and a precedent was established against further such charges. Another case involved UNC COPIRG's investigation of flammable clothing sold at Greeley department stores. Demonstrations of how easily the clothing could burn led to federal action prohibiting the sale of such clothing. UNC's COPIRG became operational in 1973 when 51 per cent of the student population signed a petition urging its creation. COPIRG is funded each quarter by voluntary fees paid by UNC students. "Most of UNC's COPIRG funds go to the central COP I KG office in Denver, where they provide the bureaucratic, investigative, and legal personnel needed to advance the consumer cause," said Sobola. Students' funds enabled the central office to challenge the authority of the Energy Research and Development Agency (ERDA) to control the disposal of nuclear waste material at Rocky Mountain Arsenal outside Denver. "We're not saying (he ERDA neglects its job, but you don't let someone who owns a business regulate it also," said Sobota. Although COPIRG won its case before the Colorado Supreme Court ERDA appealed for a final decision before the federal supreme court in December of 1975. The decision has yet (o be made. COPIRG expects to expand to four campuses next fall including the University of Colorado at Boulder and Denver, Metropolitan State College and Colorado Slate University. "The only thing holding back the program is funding," said Sobota. COPIRG plans to set up a Colorado Public Interest Foundation (COPIRF) as an organization through which non-students may contribute to the consumer cause. MERVILLE HOSIERY SALE!
