Pharmacy receives $386,228 grant
The UNC School of Pharmacy has receiv ed a S386.228 federal grant for the 1974-75 school
sear, it was announced Tuesday by Congressman L.H. Fountain.
The grant represents a slight increase over previous grants.
According to Fountain, the grant is based on the number of enrolled students and is in
.support of the school's activities. These include curriculum improvements, training of
pharmacy students for new roles and levels of serv ice and clinical pharmacy and drug
Dr. George P. Hager, dean of the school, said federal grant support is necessary to insure
continuation and expansion of pharmacists' education. Last year. Hager pointed out.
schools of pharmacy were denied the full amount of these federal grants because of Nixon
administration funds impoundment. This situation was eased when legal action in behalf of
all pharmacy schools made the distribution of funds mandatory.

GPSF Secretary Treasurer Marjorie Riepma said CGC policy forbade her to order books
last spring for botany orclassicsgraduatedepartments because the books would notarrive in

The recent clash between UNC and the
town of Chapel Hill over use of a house on
Cameron Avenue seemed to have all the
ingredients of a typical zoning squabble.
Except that UNC never really wanted the
house. It just wanted to hear the aldermen
say no, in public.
The zoning fight marked by nasty
confrontations with neighboring residents
and indignant rhetoric from town officials
was only a routine procedural ploy for the
University. The goal was additional office
space for the Frank Porter G raham research
ctntcr, exactly as stated in the special use
permit application. But the approval sought
was not that of the Chapel H ill aldermen, but
of Governor Holshouser in Raleigh. And the
office space wanted was not a few rooms in a
run-down house, but 12,000 square feet in a
modern office building.
"UNC tends not to tell many people what
it's planning to do," Chapel Hill Urban
Development Director Curt Jenne said last
week. "We just have to take their word that
they are acting in good faith."
The aldermen said no to the Cameron
Avenue house request last week, and
University plans to lease commercial office
space are moving along. Red tape remains,
but it has all been a matter of red tape from

The Center's staff did not request the
Cameron Avenue house, or any other
specific location. They applied to the
Division of Health Sciences for any available
space fitting their specifications 12,000
square feet of contiguous or nearly
contiguous office space, such as that
available in commercial office buildings like
NCNB Plaza or the Northwestern Mutual
Life building at University Square.
The Cameron Avenue house is estimated
to contain no more than 3,000 square feet of
In order to lease space off-campus, the
University must first prove there is none
available in UNC-owned buildings.
The Cameron Ave. house, already owned
by the University but unused because of
zoning restrictions, was one alternative site
located by the UNC Property Office. Only if
that house proved unusable could the
University hope to obtain state permission to
lease commercial office space.
But the house did not really meet the needs
of the Frank Porter Graham Center. Center
spokesmen have been emphatic about this,
claiming the house is not nearly large enough
and would require expensive renovation.
"That house was a surprise to us, and not at
all what we had in mind," Dr. Ronald
Wiegerink of the Center said.
, UNC applied for a zoning exception to
permit office use of the house, which is in a
well-established residential neighborhood.
But the school knew in advance that its
application would be in for trouble from the
town; according to the town planning
director, Cameron Avenue is a particularly
sensitive community, anxious to preserve
employees by 7.5 per cent.
The new budget is nearing its final stages
of inspection by the Board of Aldermen and
should be approved with no major changes.
The aldermen and Mayor Howard Lee have
conducted seven three-hour meetings this
month to review the budget. A public
hearing will be held 7:30 p.m. Monday in the

Town Hall lost the first round in its bid
this week to install pool tahles in the tavern's
game room, but manager Jeremy Strong
says he intends to try again next week.
Chapel Hill aldermen voted 3-2 Monday
night to deny Strong's application for a
permit allowing pool tables in the tavern.
Permits are required for pool tables in any
establishment serving alcoholic beverages.
Town Hall's rowdy reputation apparently
led to the negative decision. Aldermen
questioned Strong closely about fights in the
establishment and security provisions.
"Any place that needs six bouncers to
maintain order certainly shouldn't have pool
tables," Alderman R.D. Smith insisted at the
"Well, if I'd said I only had one
bouncer, they'd have claimed that wasn't
enough supervision," Town Hall manager
Strong said Wednesday. "Besides, we

"They just seem to go along with the old
idea that a pool table means sin city. But if
you want to get in a fight, a beer bottle is just

The SCAU study shows that Hartman
first noticed last summer that 11 County
records were priced as if they had a $5.98 list
price, when their actual list price was S4.98.
Hartman notified Record Bar Executive
Vice-President William Golden of this fact in
March, and was assured the error would
immediately be corrected.
After three months, two more calls to the
Record Bar executive offices and one to the
State Attorney Generals office, Hartman
went to SCAU, which gave his story to the

cracks of the floor someplace.

from us can bring it back to the store and get

"I don't believe any of us expected the
special use permit to be granted," Frank
Porter Graham Assistant Director Scott
Puckett said last week. "We certainly were
not surprised the way things turned out."
Thus, the house was not really what the
University wanted and the school did not
reaily believe it would be permitted to use it.
But the request had to be filed anyway.
University Engineer Allen S. Waters and
Property Office Legal Advisor Robert
Williams submitted detailed site maps and
plans for the proposed offices anyway.
Waters presented arguments in fav or of the
petition, and a public hearing was arranged.
But, at the same time, UNC filed an
application with the state, requesting
conditional permission to least space in a
commercial office building. The condition
was that the Chapel Hill aldermen reject the
Cameron Avenue plan.
The channels for lease applications like
those for zoning exceptions are
intentionally tricky. The idea is to keep the
University out of any hasty real estate deals,
and to make certain all options are explored
before state money is handed over to private

Claiborne S. Jones, assistant to Chancellor
Taylor, said two days later that the town's
decision ended University plans for
institutional development in the Cameron
Avenue area, and the school would therefore
look elsewhere for office space.
The Frank Porter Graham Center's
request for off-campus office space is a
routine one for the state, and Governor
Holshouser's approval Is anticipated,
possibly as early as October. After that,
renovation will be necessary, and the
researchers do not expect to occupy their
rented offices until early 1975.
This date is what the University calls a
"soft estimate." Any number of things can
cause further delay: one of the bodies
reviewing the request might postpone
consideration because of an overcrowded
agenda, or the owner of the rental property
sn question might find another tenant who
can move in sooner.
This last possibility is particularly serious,
according to Property Officer Wagoner.
"UNC pays its bills and thus hasa reputation
as a good tenant," she explained. "But that's
all we have in our favor. When we approach
a businessman and ask him to hold space for
six months, saying maybe then we'll be able
to lease it. he could be losing thousands of
dollars in the meantime."
At present, there is much vacant office
space in Chapel Hill, according to town
planners. So the Frank Porter Graham
Center's request seems to stand a good

expansion of the Police Department, have
been paid for in one year by present
taxpayers. The Improvements Plan would
pay for improvements over a five-year
period, shifting part of the burden to future
The annexation policy establishes
guidelines to include many large local
apartment complexes within the town limits.
Many of these are without any type of fire or
police protection and badly need city
services such as street maintenance and
garbage collection. Under the new
guidelines, these areas could possibly be
annexed by 1975.
The comprehensive zoning plan, begun in
1973, is designed to direct growth into areas
that can best be served by town utilities and
services. It is to work in conjunction with
zoning ordinances to control town
expansion and should be submitted for
adoption by 1976.
The 7.5 per cent increase for city employes
is to keep pace with the rising cost of living
and, according to Alderman Gerry Cohen,
will probably be approved.
Cohen said he favors awarding a larger
pay increase to lower paid employees at the
expense of better paid employees in order to
average a 7.5 per cent overall increase.
The new budget also provides for two.
federal grants designed to expand and
improve the police department. Ninety per
cent of the money for these grants will come
from the government. One grant would
make it possible forcme law enforcement
officer to deal solely with juveniles. A
decision regarding the grant is expected from
the federal government in about two
The second federal grant would add four
officers to the police force to investigate
burglaries and bicycle thefts.
