It's a well-known fact that alcohol and minors don't
mix especially when the legal drinking age is 18 in a college
town such as Chapel Hill.
Teen-agers who live in Chapel Hill are confronted with
many temptations designed for their elder college
counterparts, such as drinking beer.
Due to an increased number of assaults and a marked
increase in DUI arrests, the Chapel Hill police have stepped up
their efforts to control the illegal sales of alcohol to minors.
Local bar owners and police met Aug. 14 to discuss the
"The bar owners were very receptive and offered
' suggestions about the problem," said Dave Hill, Chapel Hill
police administrative officer. "They were very aware and
willing to work with us in any way possible."
As a result of the meeting, bar owners and managers have
agreed to be more cautious when selling beer or mixed drinks
to persons they suspect are not the legal drinking age.
"We are asking the bars to concentrate on driver's licenses
as a means of identification," Hill said. He said that
policemen will be circulating in plainclothes and uniform
around the town's bars. They will be checking the various bars
and will ask for IDs. Hill said that a person who cannot show
an ID to an officer may be prosecuted.
At least one arrest has been reported in connection with a
drunken driving citation. On Aug. 17, an 18-year-old male was
cited for buying beer for a 17-year-old friend.
"The fine for that charge is pretty much up to the judge,"
Hill said. "But it could be costs or more." If the underage
; person was younger than 16, the older person could be charged
: with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, Hill said. He
" said the penalty probably would be stricter for that charge.
Most local bars have begun checking for IDs more often and
' some will not allow a person without proper identification in
"t the door.
"We check just about everybody we don't know," Sam
' Schaffer, manager of Troll's Bar, 157 E. Rosemary St., said.
Any bar caught serving beer to a person under 1 8 could have
its license to serve alcohol suspended by the state Alcoholic
Beverage Control board.
Police said that an increase in incidents involving teen-agers
j that had been drinking during the summer caused parents to
complain about the bars. ' '
i "It's not the bars' fault," said Linda Williams, manager of
Linda's, 110 N. Columbia St. "There's not one place for a
teen-ager to go here.. .either you're in college or you aren't."

...carding becoming more frequent
Most bar owners agree that the presence of more policemen
will help the situation.
"It's suits me," Schaffer said. "I've noticed more of them
(Teen-agers) trying to buy beer." -
"When I grew up here, policemen really got to know teen
agers," Williams said. "The town was smaller then, but the
police were more aware of what was going on."
Williams said she believed that if teens were more relaxed
with policemen, there would not be as many problems.
Schaffer agrees. "The police aren't trying to give us a hard
time," he said. "They are just regular guys who happen to be
John Spencer, bar manager of Four Corner Restaurant, 175
E. Franklin St., said he had not noticed an increase in
disturbances there during the summer. "I'd been led to believe
that that sort of thing usually happens during the
summertime," Spencer said. "When they, get back in school
they will have more to do."
Williams said she did not mind teen-agers in her bar as long ;
as she could keep an eye on them. "I let them in to play pinball
during the day in the summer and I can watch them," spe said.
"They just don't have anywhere to go."
Williams, Schaffer and Spencer said they did not think that
customers should be disturbed by being asked to show
identification. "We're just doing our jobs," Spencer said. He
said that as long as all bars make a coordinated effor; to ask
for an ID no one should feel discriminated against. ,

President Jimmy Carter will have to
take a more liberal stance if he hopes to
win the presidential election in
November, a North Carolina delegate to
the Democratic National Convention
said last week. '
"We have a choice of voting between
three Republicans," said Henry Latane,
a Chapel Hill resident who went to the
convention as a Kennedy delegate.
Latane; a former UNC business
professor, retired last year after 30 years
He- said although the three major
presidential candidates represent a
conservative shift in American political
thought, the situation could be changed
before election day; particularly, he
added, as voters became aware of
Ronald Reagan's conservative
"(The Democratic Party) is united in
a negative ,way against Ronald
Reagan," he said. He also said he
expects the entire campaign to be more
personality-oriented, than issue
oriented. "It will be fought on a fairly
low-scale basis," he said.
Many observers have said
independent candidate John Anderson
could play a key role in the election this
j fall. "He may decide this election,"
j Latane said.
He added that although Anderson
j should draw more votes away from the
president than from Reagan, the
independent's candidacy would work to
Carter's advantage if the election were
thrown into the Democratic-controlled
U. S. House of Representatives.
Latane, 73, has never run for public
' office and had not previously attended a
! national convention. He also has not
voted for a Republican in the 52 years
since he cast his first ballot in 1928 for
Democratic presidential candidate Al
Latane takes a traditionally liberal
; view on both energy and inflation,
j "They (the oil companies) are not
I against (The Organization of Petroleum
Exporting Countries)," he said. "They
are against the American consumer."
He said he favors full disclosure of oil
companies' accounts to protect
consumers. ' V
Latane said most of his interest in
politics has been to encourage formerly
disenfranchised people, like blacks, to
vote. He also said college students tend
not to exercise their power at fhevpting
booth. "They ought to be active and get
out and vote to protect their interests."

'. "The next month is going to be it," slid Ole Holsti, state
chairman for the Anderson campaign. "He will have to pick a
vice president and the League of Women Voters will decide
whether or not to include him in the presidential debates."
Last week, the League said it would extend the deadline for
its decision about Anderson's viability as la candidate until the
second week of September. Officials havfe said he will need a
15 percent popularity rating to be included in the presidential
Before the Republican and Democratic national
conventions, Anderson had a 22 perceit rating, but it has
dipped to anywhere from 13 percent to 10 percent, depending
on the poll.
"Given the fact we have no federal funcjis the debates will be
crucial," Holsti said. "He just can't' afford that much
Anderson strategists have admitted the independent will not
be strong in the South. Most of his base will be located in the
Northeast and Midwest.
"We had no problem getting the 27,000 signatures he
needed to get on the ballot last spring, so the support is there,
With the return of students in the coming weeks we're hoping
to rely on a lot of volunteers."
"This state is not a promising state and we admit he's a long
shot, but it is his most likely state in the South," Holsti said.
"States like Texas, Florida, North Carolina and Virginia are
becoming less typically Southern. And I'm not convinced
Anderson is going to siphon off a lot of Democratic votes."
, - ,
Holsti said his candidate's strength would come from the
Piedmont, although there are a good number of volunteer$
helping throughout the state. " -
Holsti said the Anderson people currently are negotiating
with University officials, attempting to hold a fund-raising
concert in Carmichael Auditorium.
