The Chapel Hill Board of Aldermen
deliberated 45 minutes on the street
vending issue Monday afternoon-but
made no final decision.
The board ended their discussion by
agreeing not to place the issue on the
agenda again until a concrete proposal has
been developed for presentation.
Aldermen Joe Nassif and Alice Welsh
were appointed to develop a plan which
would allow some kind of vending in
Chapel Hill. Their plan may also include
possible regulations and restrictions.

Towing parked cars was judged illegal,
at least in one case, by Orange County
District Court last week.
Robert Oakes, manager of Cedar Court
Apartments, and Bill Burch, owner of
Burch's Auto Servicenter, were found
guilty of "unlawful taking of a motor
vehicle without intent to steal." They
served notice of appeal, and the case is
tentatively scheduled for the Orange
County Superior Court term ending Sept.
Burch, under direction of Oakes,
allegedly towed a car Aug. 18 belonging
to Rick Gibbs, former UNC student living
in Chapel Hill. Gibbs' car was parked in
the driveway of Cedar Court in Carrboro

because the boear had spent so much
time on the vending controversy, and
thought it should have a lower priority.
"The Daily Tar Heel had an editorial
(Monday) where they call this the most
pressing issue facing Chapel Hill," Wallace
said. "I disagree. On my list of priorities,
this thing is way down."
The discussion began with a proposal
by Alderman R.D. Smith for using the
south side of Franklin Street for street
"It is my opinion that we whould
utilize that side, which is much wider."
Smith said. "I've talked to a number of

Before this proposal was considered,
however, Alderman Joe Nassif raised the
question of whether it was in the public
interest to allow vending on public
Aldermen Nassif and Welsh pointed
out it was the town's right to regulate
vending, and with suitable controls it
would be possible to permit street
"We established last meeting that it is
the legal right of the town to permit
vending, but is it in the Interest of the
public?" Mrs. Welch asked. '"It is
obviously desirable because it's been done

added, "about the legality of charging the

anything about that, it's just a matter of
Bernholz said there is a law, N.C.
Statute 14-401.9, which makes
unauthorized parking illegal "provided a
sign not less than 24 inches is displayed."
This law makes illegal parking a
misdemeanor, carrying a $10 fine but
says nothing about towing.
University towing policies could come
under these statutes, said Bernholz, but a
court test would be required.

In other business, motion was made
and passed which would allow Chapel Hill
to hire a full-time dog warden who would
develop a program of dog control for the
town. Aldermen Nassif and Acroggs were
appointed to report on any conflict
existing between the county's blue laws
and the laws of Chapel Hill, in regard to

For the first time, this year the Yack
will be financed through S6 student
subscriptions. Previously, the
costs of producing the annual were borne
solely by student fees. This year, the
Yack will receive approximately one-fifth
of last year's student fee allocation.
Although a commission-based selling
campaign for the Yack has not been
approved, Collins believes some type of
commission arrangement will be worked
His plans for establishment of 3 sales
organization involve sales territories on
campus and commissions of perhaps 25
cents on each subscription.
The Yack subscription drive is slated
to begin the week of Sept. 20.
Filling several staff positions on
the yearbook, including layout editor, is a
primary task facing Collings. "We need a

experience-to fill this salaried staff post."
