Orange County drinkers will be able to purchase mixed
beverages by mid-December if the process of approving liquor
sales regulations goes as planned, Ann Fulton, chief hearing
officer for the state ABC board, said Thursday.
"The ABC board will hold a public hearing Oct. 16, and
hopefully it will approve a set of state liquor regulations that
day," Fulton said. The regulations would take effect in
November, she said. -
"We are in the process of drafting forms for liquor-license
applications now so we can hand them out Nov. 1," she said.
Licensed bars and restaurants may be serving mixed drinks by .
mid-December, Fulton said.
Fulton said she expects ABC board members to approve with
no major changes the liquor-sales regulations proposed by a
study commission chaired by former Gov. Jim Holshouser.
UNC Institute of Government Assoc. Professor Michael
Crowell, a staff aide to the Hoshouser Commision, agreed with
"ABC board members were at the commission meetings, and
they expressed their views," Crowell said. "I don't think they'll
change the regulations."
"Although I'm dissatified with little things, generally I'm
pleased with the proposed liquor regulations," said Jerry
Williams, executive director of the North Carolina Restaurant
Williams said he would like to see the $ 10 tax on each gallon of
liquor a proprietor buys lowered and the fee paid for a liquor
license raised. -
"Virginia has a $2 tax, and we were hoping for $5," he said. "A
$10 tax runs up the cost of enforcing the regulation itself, and is
counter-productive for the city and county's profit.
"The state legislature could lower the tax, and we're talking to
people now about lowering it. With the reduction of the tax, the
license fee should increase it's too low now," Williams said.
"North Carolina is very fortunate to have these regulations,"
he said. "The customer will be able to do about everything we had
"The regulations are conservative, but I'd rather see them that
way," said Joe Augustine, executive director of the Chapel H ill
Carrboro Merchants Association and Chamber of Commerce.
"With brown bagging, we have no alcoholic beverage control,"
he said. "A person could pour 10 or 12 ounces of liquor in a set
up, have a couple of drinks, and get bombed. Now a proprietor
doesn't have to serve anyone who is intoxicated," Augustine said.
"Mixed drinks are going to greatly increase the amount of
Chapef Hill's tourism and meetings," Augustine said.

A contract guaranteeing Carrboro bus
service through this academic year and
two extra hours of night service on the C
route was expected to be signed today by
University and Carrboro city officials
John Temple, UNC vice chancellor for
business and finance, and Doug Sharer, a
Carrboro alderman and spokesman in
bus negotiations, both said Thursday
afternoon they expect no delays in the
Such approval would end five months
of negotiations and three weeks of UNCs
funding the system.
The contract would take effect
Monday, providing bus service until 8:30
p.m. for C-route riders. University
funding, which began Aug. 28, ends
Temple said he and other UNC
administrators involved in the
negotiations will review the contract this
Sharer said the Carrboro Board of
Aldermen will hold a special meeting at 8
"The purpose of the meeting is to
approve the extension of the C-route
hours and I don't expect any problems,"
The proposed contract, based on an
Aug. 30 compromise formula offered by
UNC, would require the University to .
pay $72,540 and Carrboro $24,443 for the
bus system this academic year. The cost
of future bus service extension would be
split on a 50-50 basis between the two.
According to Sharer, the extension of
the F-route on Franklin, which Carrboro
officials had hoped for, probably will
begin next semester. The F-route will be
extended to include Hillsborough Road
and Greensbgro Street.
The extension was excluded from the
proposed contract because if extended it
must first be redesigned.
The bus controversy began in April
when the Carrboro aldermen rejected a
funding proposal by the University and
the Town of Chapel Hill. Under the
proposal Carrboro would have
contributed $52,350, almost three times
the cost it paid a year ago for the same
service. The University would have
contributed the same amount as in the
previous year under the contract.
Since then, negotiations have centered
around efforts to split costs fairly
between, UNC and Carrboro without
straining the budget of either.
The U niversity accused Carrboro of
seeking increased UNC funding to raise
the level of bus service, something
Temple said the city could not afford.
Carrboro officials cited figures saying
the University's net contributions as
proposed might be lower than in previous
years because of the increased sale of bus
Aug. 28, the University, faced with no
transportation for its Carrboro students,
offered to fund Carrboro service for three
weeks while negotiations continued..

Women cyclists don't ride sidesaddle
By CHERYL CARPENTER
If you're coming to the first home game
Saturday and plan to drive into campus,
University police recommend ticket
holders park at shopping centers and ride
shuttle buses into campus.
Lt. Charles Mauer of the University
police is cooperating with the N.C.
Highway Patrol and the Chapel Hill
police to prepare the campus for home
game weekends. -
"We strongly recommend students and
their parents park at shopping centers or
the lot next to the physical plant and take
shuttle buses to campus," Mauer said.
"It's a sell-out this weekend and parking
on campus will be a mess."
Bill Callahan, administrative assistant
to the director of transportation, said this
is the third year for the special football
game bus system.
"We will be using the Tar Heel Express
units this Saturday," Callahan said.
"They are two special routes we utilize
during football game Saturdays."
One route leaves from Kroger Plaza
parking lot in front of the Moon Palace
Restaurant to take riders non-stop to the
The other route picks up riders at the
Airport lot on the corner of Estes Drive
and Airport Road and takes them to the
Both the express routes will run every
10 minutes beginning on Saturday
morning from 11:30 a.m.-l:20 p.m.
"If ticket-holders want to park at
Glenn Lennox or Eastgate shopping
centers and ride buses to campus, we will
have regular route service running their
Saturday schedule," Callahan said.
"For persons parking at Eastgate,
consult the F route schedule and for
people parking at Glenn Lennox, see the
G route schedule. Both buses run from
1 1:30 a.m. until 5 and 6 p.m" he said.
"The Tar Heel Express averaged over
1,000 riders a game last year," Callahan
said. "We think it's fairly successful and
it's a service that's needed."
If you must drive to the game, beware
of blocking other cars and parking in fire
"We'll have to tow cars that block in
other cars or block fire lanes," Mauer
said. "Both these situations are
dangerous and can't be tolerated.
"There's no way we can tow all the cars
that will be parked on curbs, grass and
sidewalks," he added.
"The parking regulations are out on the
weekends, so anybody without a parking
sticker can park in the lots. Our student
monitors will work Saturday morning to
keep cars out when the lots are full."
During and after the football game,
three different forces of police officers
will be involved with crowd control.
"The University officers will be on the
field and at the field house," Mauer said.
"The Chapel Hill policemen have the
stands and the North Carolina Highway
Patrolmen will direct traffic at major
intersections after the game.
"I've been coordinating these games for
15 years and every year more people are
drawn to see Carolina play," Mauer said.
The following areas will be closed to
parking Saturday and all following

CAMP DAVID, Md. (AP) A peace
formula eluded leaders at the Mideast
summit Thursday as prospects for an
early windup seemed to fade.
But President Carter kept up the quest.
He met twice with Egyptian President
Anwar Sadat, once in the morning and
again later in the day. Carter also held a
separate session with Israeli Foreign
Minister Moshe Dayan and Defense
Minister Ezer Weizman.
Dayan then conferred with Sadat for
an hour and a quarter at the Egyptian
leader's lodge, the White House said. It
provided . no details about . any of the

who had said earlier in the day that the
summit appeared headed toward a '
windup by Friday were edging away from
One U.S. official, who asked not to be
identified, said the talks could extend
beyond the Jewish Sabbath, a 24-hour
period that ends at nightfall Saturday.
The official said Powell was trying to
curb optimistic news reports indicating
an early end for the summit. The official
described the talks as, staying at
essentially the same stage over the past
two or three days.
Powell's call for more flexibility came
in a formal statement approved by all
three delegations. The statement claimed
continuing progress without providing
specifics and said "the intense efforts of
the past few days are continuing."
Responding to questions, Powell
insisted that the summit was not at a

hour during the morning with President

presidential retreat. Late Wednesday
night Carter had met with Begin in the

and Sadat together in a week.
Israeli and Egyptian legal experts were
known to be working on details of the

It was understood that Osama Al-Baz,
the Egyptian counselor, met for eight
hours on Wednesday with Aharon Barak,
former Israeli attorney general who has
been named to Israel's Supreme Court.
One of the key issues on the table is

future of the LI million 4 Palestinian

control on the West Bank of the Jordan
River and in the Gaza district of the Sinai
Before the summit, Israel indicated its
willingness to take up the question after a
five-year period of civil self-rule proposed
by Begin last December but rejected by
Sadat as inadequate.
A compromise was understood to be
under discussion. Israel would commit
itself to a decision at the end of five
years but not promise any particular
course of action in advance.
Further tangling the dispute is the
desire of summit participants ultimately
to draw Jordan into the peace talks. (
King Hussein has insisted on an Israeli
commitment to; withdraw. Begin, citing
historical as well as security reasons, has
refused to give that commitment.
Powell said he had been authorized by
the Israeli government to deny a
published report that Begin had agreed in
principle at Camp David to an Israeli
withdrawal from the West Bank.
Earlier, Israeli officials who barred the
use of their names denied as "pure.
unadulterated, undiluted rubbish" and
"completely without foundation" similar

would deal with the future of the
Palestinian Arabs and other fundamental
issues, replaces a declaration of principles

In his drive to nail down the agreement,
tentatively called a "framework of
negotiations," Carter canceled one
appearance and postponed two
speechmaking and politicking trips.

to gain title at Spivey's Corner

"Whistling is a sensual experience. You put your

Vernon, beter known as Radar to his friends, has

Since he began whistling as a 7 year old, he has
practiced diligently at rock concerts and sports
events. He says he discovered his talent while
whistling in the backyard. When a possum blew up
and fell out of a tree, he realized it was a great power.
"I went to Spivey's Corner to frolic in the noonday
