campus and maybe to attempt a little studying. This student found a perfect spot in

Labor Day quiet for town,
hut students go to classes
Chapel Hill's Labor Day will be a quiet one for town
residents, but not for students and faculty.
With the University already in session, today will be a full
day of classes for students and professors. All University
offices will be closed, however, with the exception of Wilson
and House libraries.
All town and county offices will be closed today, with no
garbage pickups planned.
The Chapel Hill Board of Aldermen will hold their regularly
scheduled meeting, in an effort to clear the backlog of work
accumulated during the summer.
There will be no residential or rural mail delivery, but mail
box pickups will be made. Service windows will be closed, but
box service at the post offices will continue.

The by-word is participation.
The reward is seeing a small part of the
world in just a little better shape.
The place is the "Y".
Carolina's YMCA-YWCA has become
something of a legend here, a legend built
on helping the helpless, on caring for the
unwanted, and on instilling a sense of
hope in the hopeless. The opportunity to
help others, and in the process be helped,
is there for the asking, and has been for
most of the Y's 1 1 1-year history.
The Y, with its myriad of activities,
programs and efforts, has long defied a
simple, neat definition. '
Anne Queen, energetic director of the
Y since l')55, described the Y as "a
center which has on-going programs to
keep the institution itself alive, but which
has enough flexibility to allow for new

The 30-page pamphlet is the work of

Various methods were evaluated for

committee's work into a pamphlet was
not well received at first, Miss Potter said,

The booklet consists of an explanation

hallucinogens, opiates, cocaine,
amphetamines, barbituates, ethyl alcohol
and other substances of abuse.
In addition, Schroeder said there are
chapters on the medical hazards of

hazards of drug use, drugs and the law,
general procedures for emergencies and
services available to drug users in the
Chapel Hill area.
A first draft of the booklet was
prepared and submitted to 150 persons in
the Chapel Hill and University
communities including doctors, lawyers
and pharmacists, for their opinions.
"The comments we got back were
most helpful," Schroeder said. "And it
was interesting to note about an equal
