WASHINGTON Opponents of President
Carter's plan to register draft-age youths vowed
Thursday to "picket, teach-iri, protest and
demonstrate" in every major city, but
acknowledged they will have a hard time
stopping the program.
The president already has strong backing on
registration from key congressional leaders,
including Senate Democratic Leader Robert
Byrd and House Speaker Thomas P. O'Neill,
and it appears now that his plan would be

Most of the spokesmen predicted that
registration would lead to a draft. In his speech,
Carter said he hoped a draft will not be
necessary but that "we must be prepared for
Barry Lynn, spokesman for a coalition of 42
peace, student, civil rights and religious groups,
said his group "is absolutely committed to an
all-out effort to prevent draft registration from
being reimposed in this country now."
He said the coalition the Committee

"We are outraged at any form of drafting,"

President Carter's proposal to revive draft
registration received the support of most state
leaders Thursday but drew mixed reactions
from UNC students, most of whom would be
eligible for military service.
In an informal survey of student opinion
conducted by The Daily Tar Heel, not all
students approved of the plan but most said
they would serve if drafted.
Chris Bishop, 18, a freshman member of the
Navy ROTC program, said that registration
was a step in the right direction. "If they don't
have people registered, it will take a long time
to get them to the fighting line," Bishop said.
Bill Powers, 23, a graduate student from
Austin, Tex., said that he favored the program
but was unsure whether he would be willing to
fight. "If the country was in grave danger, 1
would go," he said. "If it was another foreign
police action (by the United States), then I
would be 3,000 miles away tomorrow."
Many women on campus said they
supported the idea of registration. "Carter did
not have any choice," said Lynn DeRochi, a
sophomore from Greensboro. "He needs to
show the Russians that we're not going to take
(their military agression)."
"1 think registration is meaningless," said
Jeff McLaughlin, 19, from Baltimore, Md.
"Carter wants to show he's tough so he can win
the election." However, when asked what he
would do if he were drafted, McLaughlin said
he'd serve. "I don't want to ruin the rest of my
future if I don't go," he said.
Opinion was divided on drafting women.
Most women said they would be willing to serve
on the front lines if necessary, whereas most of
the men were opposed to the registration and
drafting of women.
Karen Sloan, 19, from High Point, said she
would serve in combat. "If the guys have to
fight, I think that I should too," Sloan said.
"Women should be drafted," isaid Katie
Brown, an 18-year-old freshman. "I would go
to the front linc.if the country was
threatened." However, Brown did say she
would wait until war broke out before she
would go into the service.
Some UNC men, including Geoff Mock of
Baltimore, Md., supported military service for
women. "I think it is time women were
integrated into the armed serv ices," Mock said.
Other men were hostile to the proposal. "1 do
not believe they should be fighting on the front
lines," said Kurt Kunttu, 18, a Navy ROTC
midshipman. "The female should be protected
by the male of the species. I don't want to fight
Sophomore Jeff McLaughlin, although he
said it would boost morale, was opposed to
drafting women. "Yes, I am opposed to it,"
McLaughlin said. "1 think we would be too
occupied with the women and not with the
President Carter's proposals met with
generally solid approval from both campus
authorities and state officials.
James Leutze, UNC professor of history and
chairman of the Curriculum in Peace, War and
Defense, said he supports Carter's moves.
"I certainly favor the resumption of
registration and ultimately of the draft," he
said, but stressed that a draft must be equitable.

Former unofficial head of the "Draft
Kennedy" movement in North Carolina.
Tony Adams said Tuesday he was
switching his support to President Carter.
Adams said that Kennedy is losing
support and Carter has proved he could
win the. nomination.
"I supported Kennedy when it looked
like he had a chance," said Adams, a
Raleigh writer and radio show host. "But
Carter won in the Iowa caucuses and he is
ahead of the Republicans in the polls."
Adams said Kennedy began losing
support after an interview with CBS
News correspondent Roger Mudd.
"People begat) to have doubts about
Kennedy's leadership ability after the
CBS interview," Adams said. "When a
person uses leadership ability while
campaigning, he has to show that his
leadership is best, and Kennedy hasn't
Adams said he did expect Kennedy to
win in New England.
Irt an interview with The Daily Tar
Heel last November, Adams said it was
apparent that Carter was in deep trouble
"People aren't listening to the
president," Adams said. "You just can't
have people turning off the radio when
the president comes on."
Now, however, Adams says that during
the last several months Carter has proved
his leadership ability.

"We need to show the world that we
support the president," Adams said.
Adams said Carter had performed
overwhelmingly well in foreign policy,
with the Iranian crisis and the Soviet
Union's invasion of Afghanistan.
"If he (Carter) continues to get support
on his foreign policy, maybe he will
improve his domestic policy," Adams
Adams said he was aware that his
decision to switch his support to Carter
would draw opposition.
"1 knew some people would be mad at
me," Adams said. "But Kennedy just
hasn't caught fire like I expected. The
reason I supported Kennedy was because

The Student Health Service is planning a vaccination
effort this weekend to protect students from an epidemic
of red measles in Chapel Hill and Carrboro, a health
service physician said Thursday night.
Anyone who has never had red measles or who has not
been vaccinated for the disease since 1967 should listen
to WCHL-radio for information on when and where
vaccinations will be available.
Student Health Service physician Dr. James
McCutchan said health officials thought before
Thursday that they could contain a rash of 12 red
measles cases that erupted in the Carrboro Elementary
School and Carrboro Methodist Day Care Center this
But Thursday afternoon, a UNC student, whose name
was not released, was diagnosed as having red measles,
or rubeola, a form of measles more serious than rubella,
know also as German measles or three-day measles.
McCutchan said another student has reported the
symptoms of red measles but had not been diagnosed as
having the disease.
Room to live ?
Based on data collected in studies of other
universities, Student Health Service estimated that
about one-fourth of UNC's students, or about 5,000
people, may be susceptible to the disease, McCutchan
Student Health Service and the state Department of
Health plan to meet at noon today to decide how soon to
begin offering vaccines.
"It may be as early as Friday afternoon, or it may be
Monday morning," McCutchan said. "There is no
shortage of the vaccines, but it's a matter of how long it
takes us to get hold of 5,000 doses."
He said some vaccines will be brought to UNC from
the state health department in Raleigh, and more can be
brought from the Communicable Disease Center in
McCutchan said he did not think the vaccination had
any serious side effects. "It's not that new, so there
probably are no surprises with it," he said.
Doctors from the state health department will try to
determine who has been in contact with the student who
tias red measles, so exposed people can be vaccinated if
necessary. Symptoms of red measles include a dry,
hacking cough, runny nose and light-sensitive eyes,
followed by high fever and a rash, said Orange County
Health Director Jerry Robinson.
Measles may be transmitted during an incubation
period of five to six days before symptoms appear.
Young children are most susceptible to the highly
infectious strain, Robinson said. However, when
contracted by adults, the disease has more serious
consequences. For example, red measles may cause a
pregnant woman to miscarry if the disease is improperly
Students who were given the vaccine before 1967
received a vaccine that is not as effective as the one given
since then, McCuchan said.
Students who received immunization before the age of
12-15 months may be less protected, too, he said,
because younger children's bodies have more difficulty
producing immunization antibodies.
The Chapel Hill-Carrboro cases are the first red
measles reported in the state this year.
McCutchan said students may have problems finding
out whether they had red measles as children and when
they were vaccinated.
"For a lot of students, the records of their vaccinations
are sitting at home in a book with momma," he said.

The number of people closed out of
University housing has been increasing
steadily during the past three years.
Rising apartment rents and changes in
dormitory life have sent students
scurrying back to campus residence halls,
Jody Harpster, associate housing
director for residence life, said Thursday.
With the annual spring dormitory
lottery only a month away, waiting lists
for off-campus housing are bulging.
Apparently, students are trying to secure
housing in the event that the high demand
for University housing forces them out of
their dorm rooms.
Harpster said he feels that spiraling
apartment rents in the Chapel Hill
Carrboro area have put economic
pressures on many students to stay in
dormitories. "I think that's the reason
residence halls are more attractive," he
A survey conducted by the Student
Consumer Action Union show that rents
for two-bedroom apartments in many
area apartment complexes have increased
by $25-535 per month over last year's
Harpster said he also feels that
improvements in dormitory buildings
and changing attitudes among dormitory
residents have contributed to the
increased campus housing demand.
"The general living environment of the
dorms has become a better place to live,"
University housing contracts for I980
1981 will be available Monday. Housing
officials will not know how many people
will be closed out of dorms until all
contracts are returned and the room
lotteries are held Feb. 25.
Granville Towers, the only privately-
owned University-sanctioned housing
complex, already is feeling the effects of
the campus housing shortage. There are
now 169 menandl78 women onawaiting
list for Granville housing.
"The response from Granville residents
is overwhelming and hard to figure out,"
said Melvyn Rinfret, Granville Towers
general manager. "We've had about 75
percent of our residents return the
(housing) application and normally it's 50
"The applications are much heavier
than have been in the past and much
earlier," Rinfret said. The Granville
application deadline was moved up from
Feb. 16 last year to Jan. 20 this year, he
said. The applications are not leases,
however, he added.
"It took us by surprise the rate of
applications going up," Rinfret said.
Granville has had no vacancies since
the beginning of the fall semester, Rinfret
said. The complex had approximately
eight vacancies in January 1979, he said.
Granville Towers admits residents on a
first come, first serve basis. Even though
the rent will increase next fall, several
Granville residents said Thursday they
are not happy that the campus housing
shortage has increased the competition
for their spaces in the Granville complex.
"People panicked, I think, because last
year a lot of people got closed out," said
Suzy Conner, a junior from Lexington.
"The reason I started living in Granville
my freshman year was because 1 didn't
want to t closed out of the lottery."
David Bishop, a senior from Charlotte,
said he believes that many on-campus
students are worried by the housing
shortage and are using Granville Towers
as a back-up plan in case they get closed
out in the dorm lottery, without really
wanting to live there.

Apartment hunting in Chapel Hill is
never easy, and this year is no exception.

an apartment should start looking before
students who get closed out of dorms
flood the market. Some apartments
already are compiling waiting lists for
Many others rent through realtors or
by word-of-mouth, and many operate on
a first-come first-served bais without
taking waiting lists.
Last year, about 850 students were
closed out of dorms. "We hope that there
will be less this year, but anything can
happen," said Peter Boneparth. president
