Several months ago, officials from
Orange, Durham and Wake counties
hammered out a plan to share $318,000 in
funds from the U. S. Department of Housing
and Urban Development (HUD).
But the town of Hillsborough made an
independent application for the money and
has now walked away with the lion's share of

the sum it requested; and Durham and Wake

Alfred Guy "Pete" Ivey, director of the
UNC News Bureau for 20 years, died at his
home here Wednesday. He was 62.
A native of Rocky Mount, Ivey was
recuperating from a heart attack suffered in
Funeral services for Ivey will be held at 10
a.m. Saturday at University Methodist
Church and burial will be at 3 p.m. at
Pineview Cemetery in Rocky Mount.
Chancellor N. Ferebee Taylor said of Ivey,
"He gave two decades of loyal and dedicated
service to this institution. He loved this
University as" he loved this state and its
Although Ivey never graduated from the
University, he is considered an alumnus of
Carolina. He entered the University in 1931
to study journalism, but family financial
problems and the Great Depression forced
Ivey to earn his way through the University.
He did freelance writing for North
Carolina papers, worked in the Bulls Head
Bookshop at nights, was a stenographer in
the office of the dean of students.
As an undergraduate here, Ivey boxed on
the freshman and varsity teams, worked for
the Daily Tar Heel, edited the Carolina
Buccaneer, (a campus humor magazine),
and was a member of the Golden Fleece
Following his three years as a UNC
student, he became the managing editor of
the Alumni Review for two years. In June
1936 he was named director of the Graham
Memorial Student Union, serving for two
Ivey later became a reporter for the
Sentinel, until 1942 when he was drafted into
the Army. Following his military career, he
became managing editor of the Shelby Daily
Star in 1954.
In 1955, he became News Bureau director
where he served until his death.
Ivey was the "world's authority" on
persimmons, Lefler said. "Mr. Ivey got
letters, telephone calls regularly on how to
prepare various persimmon recipes," Lefler
Ivey chose to be a persimmon authority
over North Carolina history, journalism
history and Shakespeare because no one else
was an authority on the fruit.
"One night while drinking a glass of
persimmon beer, I was struck by a happy
inspiration of thought. Why not be an
authority on the persimmon?" he once said.

William C. Friday said, "Pete Ivey served the
University with total devotion and great skill
throughout his professional career. Those of

Unlike UNC at Chapel Hill, the University
of California at Berkeley has had its
Affirmative Action Plan approved by the
U.S. Department of Health, Education and
Berkeley has determined it needs to add
95.71 women, 2.79 Orientals and 1.38 blacks
to its faculty.
Affirmative Action refers to a set of
programs designed to give minorities and
women equal employment opportunities.
Since 1971, when the U.S. Department of
Labor issued Revised Order No. 4, all firms
with more than 50 employees receiving more
than $50,000 annually in contracts or grants
from the federal government must file a
written Affirmative Action statement with
the federal government. These firms must
also plan to increase the number of
minorities and women on their staff.
The goal of UNC's Affirmative Action

thinks Hillsborough had the best plan for use
of the money. "We can serve more people
more effectively," he said.
The town plans to use the money to
improve sewer service to approximately 510
houses just outside the town, Cates said.
He added that inadequate sewer service
has turned the area into a health hazard.
If the three-county plan had been adopted,
Carrboro would have received a sizeable
sum of money. Since Orange County's
requested sum was cut in half, Carrboro's
allotment will be greatly reduced.
"I am very disturbed," Carrboro Mayor
Robert Wells said, "when one man (Cates)
can go to Washington and hold out his hand
and get all the money with no consideration
given to three counties."
Wells said that the federal government
should consider the overall situation instead
of "treating one town specially.

applicant gets the funds, could have given all
the money to one applicant or to any
combination of the four applicants, Jim

"I would have hoped that the (three
county) program proposal would have been
adopted," Gustaveson said.
He said that although Hillsborough has
problems, the town's plans could have been
incorporated into the county's plans over the
next several years.
The Community Development Act is a
five-year program, and communities will be
able to apply for funds again next year. This
is the first year that the funds have been
distributed by HUD.
Knott said he anticipates that Wake
County will apply for funds next year.
Sharp skeptical of court offer
North Carolina Supreme Court Justice
Susie Sharp attaches no significance to
rumors mentioning her as a possible
nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court
position vacated by Justice William O.
Douglas, she said Thursday.
Sharp has been listed by the Washington
Post and New York Times as one of several
women being nominated for the position by
President Ford. An important factor in
Ford's consideration of nominating a
woman has been the urging he has received
from his wife, Betty, the Times reported.
"The point is to set goals and do your dead-level best to reach them, rather thanset quotas.
What it takes is dogged determination, patience, perseverance and conscience.
Plan is to give women and minorities an
equal chance at being hired, getting
promotions and receiving a good salary in
faculty and non-faculty staff positions.
But the major impediment to fulfilling the
plans, particularly in the faculty sector, is
finding qualified people to fill the positions.
"It is a source of frustration and concern
to us, and to women and blacks that this
discrimination wasn't eliminated sooner,"
Douglass Hunt, UNCs vice-chancellor for
administration and Affirmative Action
Officer, said recently. "We know why (it has
not been done sooner). It is the supply as
much as anything else."
Supply is one key dimension in the

The position of student body comptroller
was established by an 11-8-1 vote of the
Campus Governing Council Wednesday
night. The vote followed a month of debate
on the proposal.
Before passing the comptroller bill, the
council defeated a substitute motion made
by Student Body President Bill Bates to
establish a department of the treasury.
Although Bates had previously threatened
to veto the comptroller bill, he said Thursday
he was still undecided and would reach a
decision within the 10-school-day limit
allowed for a presidential veto by CGC law.
The comptroller bill, proposed Oct. 19 by
CGC Reps. Dick Pope and Ben Steelman,
provides for a CGC-elected comptroller to
act as an administrative aide to the council
and its Finance Committee.
The comptroller would be accountable to
the entire council since only CGC has the
power to dismiss him or her.
Critics of the bill have said it would strip
powers from the student body treasurer.
The controversial comptroller bill has
been brought to the CGC floor on three
previous occasions and has been postponed
each time. It has also been discussed at two
public hearings and has been the subject of
several columns and editorials in the Daily
A major objection to the comptroller,
voiced frequently by Bates, was that it
combines the legislative and executive
branches of government which Bates said
should be separated.
The duties of the comptroller include
overseeing all non-executive Student
Government organizations and making
monthly reports on all Student Government

The loan is to be repaid within 30 days or

year as the inventory is sold, advertisers pay

Several CGC representatives opposed the
extension of the loan because of cash flow
problems encountered by the Tar Heel
earlier this year.
Rep. Ben Steelman said Thursday that
although he could not foresee any alternative
to granting the loan since the CGC Media
Board representative Tal Lassiter said there
was a pressing short term need for the loan,
he is concerned over whether the loan would
solve the DTH's problem.
"It seems to me that the Tar Heel's cash
flow situation seems to be a chronic
problem, and I haven't heard any solutions
yet," he said.
"I've seen very little initiative from the Tar
Heel office in bringing forth solutions to this
cash flow problem."
Rep. Dick Pope said he believes the
question of the loan should have been
referred to the Finance Committee. "I want
to make sure we (CGC) are not giving bad

comes to choosing a medieval historian."
Except for the field of education, Hunt
said there is a shortage of blacks in just about
every discipline. There is a greater
percentage of women with Ph.D's than
blacks, he said, but that number still does not
match white males.
An institution with UNCs reputation has
both expediting and restraining effects on
Affirmative Action, Hunt said.
"We're ranked among the top 20 to 25
universities in the nation," Hunt said. "That
means we have some attraction powers. We
don't attract people by not being good."
On the other hand, said Hunt, "The people
who come here ought to be able to perform
in this environment. We're trying to come up
with a University that will be better."
Revised Order jS'o. 4 was originally
designed in 1971 for industries; but it was not
applied to a university until 1972.
Trying to adapt it to a university setting
has been one of Hunt's biggest frustrations,
and it is a major reason why UNCs plan is

Council were in attendance last night as the
therefore the workload of the treasurer
would not be decreased.
Rep. Jay Tannen disagreed, saying the
treasury department bill stated that both the
assistant treasurer and the comptroller
would perform duties assigned by the
treasurer which would reduce his work.
Student Body Treasurer Graham Bullard
also said the comptroller bill would split the
treasurer's workload, which he said is too
much for one person. "From experience,
handling the funds of the administrative
branch is a full-time job," he said.
"The comptroller bill will get the treasury
out from the political arena," Bullard added.
In other action, CGC voted 14-2-4 to
override a presidential veto on a bill which
allows Finance Committee vice-chairperson
to sign for the treasurer if the treasurer's
office became vacant. Bates said he opposed
the bill because it gave a legislator executive

$20,000, he said.
Pope also said the business staff is
excellent in advertising but that it takes more
than advertising to operate a business.
The newspaper asked for the loan because
it was faced with a decision on whether to
continue publishing. Bailey said, explaining
that money from advertisers is not coming in
fast enough to insure publication.
Bailey said he tried all alternatives before
requesting the loan, including asking the
Media Board to allow the paper to publish
without requisitions and asking the treasurer,
to release the remainder of the Tar Heel's
Student Government allocation.
The business staff can use all of December
to collect money from advertisers without
having to expend any cash since the paper
does not publish during that month, he said.

progress in areas such as female Academic

where the 13.8 percentage (as of Sept. 30,

But the percentage of females on the
Health Affairs faculty has decreased since
1972, from 23 per cent to 22.4 per cent. This
year's hiring goal was 23.9 per cent.
