Court action contemplated
against Orange Committee
By ROBERT THOMASON
The Orange County B.oard of
Commissioners Monday instructed its
lawyer to investigate the possibility of court
action against 24 members of the Orange
Committee who have challenged the voting
rights of more than 6,300 persons in Chapel
Hill and Carrboro.
"The challengers appear to have compiled
their lists in a random, shotgun fashion
which has hassled legitimately registered
voters," commission chairperson Richard
Estimates indicate about $7,600 has
flowed from the county coffers to the Orange
County Board of Elections to pay for
processing the voter challenges.
Four of the five commissioners said the
county should not pay for the challenging
process because the Orange Committee is
using the purging procedure to achieve its
own political ends.
i "1 support the challenge process, but not
the way the challenges have taken shape,"
Whitted said. "People need to be put on
notice. They cannot abuse the challenge
system and expect the public to finance it."
Commissioner Norm Walker cast the only
dissenting vote, saying his colleagues'
proposal would harass longtime county
residents without achieving any constructive
Park says he never asked

Former U.S. Rep. Nick Galifianakis of
Durham Tuesday reaffirmed his earlier
statement that South Korean millionaire
Tongsun Park never asked the North
Carolina Democrat for special favors, nor
did Galifianakis ever do anything for Park.
In testimony before the House Ethics
Committee Monday, Park said Galifianakis
was one of 30 members of Congress to whom
he made payments ranging from $100 to

Carolina is 25-9 overall while State is 19-5.

After that, Wolfpack pitcher Rich
Spanton, who entered the game with a 0.79
earned run average, retired 12 ofthe next 13
batters. The Tar Heels loaded the bases in
the ninth but Spanton easily held on to
record his fifth win against no defeats.
Spanton had a rocky start as J. D.
Henderson doubled and Jim Atkinson hit
his sixth home run of the season in the first
"The board (of commissioners) has no
business getting involved here," Walker said.
"Citizens have legally challenged registered
voters and have offered to withdraw the
challenges filed by mistake."
Officials of the county elections board
have said the 6,300 challenges have been filed
properly, but there is still some doubt if state
law allows the Orange Committee to
withdraw challenges against voting rights of

County attorney Geof Gledhili said he has
not established a timetable for taking legal
action against the Orange Committee but he
expects to" make a report to the
commissioners within a few weeks.
"I'm reluctant to talk about the case since I
have not had a chance to talk to the
commissioners about it," said Gledhili,
whose Hillsborough law firm also represents
the elections board.
Gledhili said he will report to the
commissioners in closed session but any
action would be made at a public hearing.
Gledhili said the cost of filing suit against
the Orange Committee may be a deciding
influence on the commissioners' decision.
It is not known how much the suit would
cost because the commission has not said
how many Orange Committee members it
may file complaints against, Gledhili said.

John Jamison, vice president for
corporate communications at NCNB
headquarters in Charlotte, confirmed
Tuesday that the bank does make loans to
businesses in South Africa and will continue
to do so. He said the loans so far have not
been for extensive amounts.
Jamison would not discuss the amount or
the recipients of the NCNB loans in South
Africa. "Customers' accounts cannot be
discussed with third parties," he said.
According to 1976 and 1977 reports from
the U.S. Export-Import Bank, NCNB made
at least four loans totaling $164 million to
South African businesses.
The loans went for Cessna aircraft sold to
private South African citizens, industrial
cranes and mini-computers, according to a

South campus deck
to parking plans
By MIKE COYNE
Residents living near the Health Sciences
parking deck Monday night expressed
almost unanimous opposition to the
University's proposed addition to the deck at
a meeting of the town planning board.
The residents of the Mason Farm Road.
Otlcy's Road and Whitehead Circle area of
Chapel Hill also requested the board find a
solution to the area's current traffic
The University is seeking a special-use
permit for a proposed 842-space addition to
the existing Health Sciences parking deck on
The board called the special meeting in
response to a petition signed by 76 percent of
the area's residents.
The petition requested the closing to two
intersections - the points where N.C. 15
501 intersects Otey's Road and the Mason
Farm Road. This would halt use of these
roads as shortcuts between the hospital
complex and the bypass.
"We are concerned about the unsafe
traffic load at present, but we are especially
concerned about the increased traffic load in
the future." Dr. Carl W. Gottschalk of 1300
Mason Farm Road said. He repesented 28 of
the 46 area households.
"We are faced with a dangerous present
"and a terrifying future," Harvey L. Smith of
428 Whitehead Circle said. "We are trapped.
Jogging is a folly, and walking a dog can be
as dangerous to the dog as the pedestrian."
"What we have here is that a very pleasant
neighborhood has been turned into a
thoroughfare," Smith said.
Several residents said the real .problem
was the University's parking plans.
"Clearly, the solution is for the University
to decide that they don't have to provide a
parking space for every employee," Philip
Rees of 503 Otey's Road said.
"The real problem is the University is
encouraging a one car, one rider policy,"
Joseph Capowski of 8l901d Pittsboro Road
said. "This type of thinking is definitely old
fashioned in this day and age. Perhaps

regulations required money to be deposited
in a trust account daily.
Britt said collection agencies are
responsible for making sure all employees
are familiar with regulations.
Collection agencies should remit the
money they collect to their clients within 30
days after the end of each month, even if they
have not received all the money from the
debtor, Britt said.
But sometimes a debtor refuses to
complete his payment if a business has
accepted only a partial amount, according to

Congress began hearings on the Ex-Im
Bank March 28, after the Congressional
Black Caucus and a number of liberals in
Congress called for an end to Ex-Im Bank's
investments in South Africa.
NCNB was the only North Carolina bank
listed in the Ex-Im Bank records.
"By loaning money to South Africa,
NCNB makes the white minority get
stronger and the blacks become more
oppressed," Bunce said. "The good things
that come from financial support don't
trickle down to the blacks.
"Also, we are making South Africa self
sufficient so that if and when there is an
international boycott of South Africa, they
can ignore it.
"We may end up with a situation like
Vietnam we will have so many
investments there that we will have to defend
them if there is a war," she said.
Jamison said NCNB frequently considers
the question of South African loans.
"We are aware of the moral question
involved," he said. "There are two points of
view. One says it's wrong to loan money in a
country with an immoral system of

In the Monday night meeting, Art Berger,
town development director, presented 10
options proposed by the planning staff to
deal with present and future traffic problems
on Otey's, Purefoy and Mason Farm roads.
The options presented by Berger included
placing a light at the intersection of South
Columbia Street and the off-ramp of the
east-bound bypass, closing either one or
both Otey's and Mason Farm intersections
with the bypass and blocking Mason Farm
Road north of its intersection with Otey's
According to Gottschalk, area residents
favor a combination of several of the

Gottschalk said the residents agreed at a

The matter was to come before the

The Campus Governing Council voted
unanimously Monday night to free Black
Student Movement funds which had been
froen since Friday.
The act to free BSM funds was in
conjunction with an act to administer the
repayment of a $ 10.000 loan granted to
BSM by the CGC last fall.
Funds were froen after discovery of a
violation of the Student (overnment code.
The code requires that collateral equal to
the debt outstanding on any loan be held in
the unappropriated balance of the
organization to which the loan is granted.
The bill also urged BSM to pay as much
of the debt as possible by May 15, the
original repayment deadline, and set up an
extension of the pay period to March 20,
1979. Any amount outstanding after May
15 will accrue a 6 percent interest charge.
To ensure the loan will be paid off, the
CGC set a tentative schedule of payment
which calls for 20 percent ofthe loan to be
paid by Sept. 25; 25 percent by Oct. 25; 10
percent by Nov. 15; 15 percent by Jan. 25;
25 percent by Feb. 25 and the remaining 5
percent by March 20.
