A proposed addition to the Southern Bell Telephone Co
exhange building at 203 E. Rosemary St. may pose danger to the
Old Methodist Church building beside it the Chapel Hill
Historic District Commission reports.
Southern Bell has asked the "hapel Hill Board of Aldermen
for a special-use permit to extend the present building to house
an $11 million electronic switching station, company District
Manager Mike Carson said.
uln order to give Chapel Hill the customer service it wants, we
need to put it (the new exchange) in," Carson said.
The modernized switching station will allow touch-tone
telephones, conference calls, message relays and answering
The Historic District Commission approved the Williamsburg
type architectural style of Southern Bell's proposed addition, but
questioned whether the annex would damage the Old Methodist
Two engineering consultant firms examined the church and
reported to the commission that disruption of the land near the
church could cause damage to the 120-year-old structure.
"There was concern on the part of several people that the
church might be damaged," Chapel H ill Planning Director M ike
Jennings said. "One question asked was why the extension could
not be added to the back of the present building instead of beside
Sputhern Bell's Carson said the land behind the present
exchange once had been filled and would have to be fortified with
wood pilings before construction could begin.
"The vibrations caused by such a move could very welldamage
the church," Carson said.
"We see no problem with possible damage to the church
because there will be a 10-foot easement (space) between our
building and the church," Carson said.
"We also plan to put in concrete pilings and beams to prevent
any damage. I've talked at length with our building engineers and
architects, and I see no problem," he said.
Town officials hold a public hearing Sept. 25 on whether to
grant thespecial-use permit.

Having fun at Kudzu-WDBS anti-nuke fund-raiser Sunday
The Committee on Educational Planning, Policies
and Programs of the UNC Board of Governors
Saturday gave the go-ahead to construction the
School of -Veterinary . Medicine.. 'at N.C. State
University, indicating that opponents of the project
may be unable to gather forces to stop construction
before groundbreaking begins this fall.
Panel members gave the green light by voting
against a motion to hold off action on the lacilitv. -which
has drawn fire from opponents in the N.C.
General Assembly and the Board of Governors.
Committee member George Watts Hill of Durham
had asked that budget considerations be postponed
in light of recent studies showing the school may not
Committee member Harley Shulord of Hickory
seconded H ill's motion, but the proposal died when it
was brought to a voice vote. '
John Sanders. UNC vice president for planning,
said he does not know if Hill and Shuford's plan can
be revived before the Finance Committee and the full
32-member Board of Governors deliberate next
month on the move to stop the school.
"There are quite a number of legislators who are
opposed to the school and some who are having
second thoughts," Hill told the planning committee
"We should stop and assess the situation," Hilh
said. "After full consideration by the administration
and this committee, we can make a decision to
proceed or not to proceed." .
Committee member Reginald McCoy of
Laurinburg expressed support for the vet school. .
w hich has been approved by the Board of Governors
in four separate votes since the project was first
proposed in 1974. ,
"1 think the livestock industry is becoming an
increasingly large part of the agricultural industry in
North Carolina," McCoy said. "If and when tobacco
begins to fail, livestock is going to be the biggest
volume money producer in agriculture in North
"The livestock industry could not exist without
veterinary assistance." McCoy said.
The most recent estimates put the cost of the vet
school at $32 million. Hill. Shuford and other
opponents have said the figure is too high, especially
in light of two recent surveys saying North
Carolinians who want to become vets can go out of
the state for low-cost schooling. .
State legislators in June appropriated $9 million
for initial construction of the vet school. The Finance
Committee and the Board of Governors must decide
whether to ask the 1979 General Assembly for
another $22 million.
Planning committee chairperson John Jordan of
Raleigh agreed with UNC President William C.
Friday that the 16-campus UNC system needs a vet
"Our purpose is to look at the facts and decide
from. there," Jordan said. "1 hope our decision is
based on what we think is best for education in North

members' were presented with a petition from 31
UNC faculty - members asking .the group to

after the proposal earlier had been approved.

The U.S. Supreme Court heard more
cases'on the Vights and responsibilities of
men arid womerr from 1974 to 1977 than
in its entire previous history, a noted
woman lawyer said Friday.
Rutl Bader Ginsburg. a professor at
the Columbia University School of Law
and general counsel for the American
Civil Liberties Union, gave the keynote
address ot about 150 persons at the Sex
Discrimination and Law Symposium.
The symposium was sponsored by the
UNC Association for Women Students
and Women in Law. GinsburgL spoke on
"Sexuality Equality as a Constitutional
Principle." -. .
Ginsburg said the story of the struggle
for equal rights still is in the making. She
traced the history of the struggle through
Supreme Court cases. Ginsburg served as -counsel
for many of the equal rights cases
heard by the court in the 1970s.
'Ginsburg said despite the Women's
Property Act and the 14th and 19th
amendments, the Constitution is viewed
as an empty cupboard by jurors for equal
rights-related Supreme Court claims.
"Sex classifications, in contrast to
, black codes, weren't meant to demean
women,' she said. "Instead they were
meant to keep women on a pedestal."
She cited as an example a quote from
Thomas Jefferson, who said that all men
are created equal. "To prevent
depravation of morals and ambiguity,
women should not mix promiscuously at
gatherings of men." Jefferson said.
"Sex role pigeon-holing disadvantages
both sexes." she said. "The law has
treated as synonyms male and.
breadwinner, female and dependent."
Ginsburg said that although .some
people have argued that the law gives
women the best of both worlds. "Many
gender-classifying laws can be viewed as
favorable or unfavorable depending on
In Louisiana, for example, women at
onetime were excluded from jury roles. If
a woman wished to serve jury duty, she
could, after going to the courthouse and
signing up. ,
But although a woman could serve on
the jury, the law was discriminatory
because being a citizen entails
responsibilities as well as rights,"
Because of the Equal Pay Act of 1963
and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of
1964, more women have begun working.
The number of women working in 1970
has exceeded experts' predictions for
1990, she said.
However. legislators had mixed
motives for passing the Equal Pay Act,
she said. They thought women would not
flood the job market because if an
employer had to pay a man and a woman
equally, he would prefer the man for the
job. Ginsburg said.
Since the sex-discrimination laws have
appeared, sex-discrimination challenges
have trooped before the courts, Ginsburg
said. Cases have addressed educational
inequalities, gender-based differentials,
jury duty, military service and the
treatment of pregnant women.

Terp tailback Steve Atkins breaks tackle

Talk about annoying the Rams
Clubbers upstairs in Kenan Field House
couldn't even gripe about the game in
peace and -quiet with the ruckus going
on downstairs in the Maryland locker
Locker-pounding in unison, foot
stomping, assorted grunts and
inaudible screams and a few noisy; "H ell
; yeahs" permeated the placid setting
upstatirs. M ust have been tough to take
for those who shell out big bucks to see
Carolina football. -
If they had to guess who the ring
leader was down below causing the
tremors, the consensus would be Steve
Atkins, the burly tailback who knocked
the wind out of the Carolina defense all
With just a towel draped around his
waist. Atkins, stood on a bench and
wielded a huge Maryland state flag back
and forth to lead-the celebration. It
looked to be the same flag someone was
waving along the Terrapin sideline the
whole game after every Maryland first
down, every clobbering of Matt Rupee
in the UNC backfield and seemingly
every time Atkins ran the ball.
Twenty-eight carries for 162 yards
and two touchdowns. Not bad for
someone "still on his way back."
according to Coach Jerry Claiborne,
after sustaining some nagging
"I was especially anxious to play in
this one because last year I pulled a
hamstring on the opening kickoff and
couldn't play." the muscular 2 Im

kickoff back II yards, and on
Maryland's second play, went off right
tackle for 45 yards, leading to a 47-yard
field goal. Later in the quarter he went
all the way from 36 yards out. 1 1 was N o.
38 everywhere, running through people
and powering for extra yardage.
By the half Atkins had 1 15 yards on
13 carries. But like last week against
Louisville, the Terps had to come from
behind to win. The L'NC defense shut
the visitors down through most of the
second half while gaining a 20-15
"We were just saying, 'be cool, no silly
mistakes. I thought we would come
back. 1 guess they were looking for me
and our line wasn't blowing them off the
ball as well," Atkins said. "But we got
pride and we did it."
