It's been almost two years since liquor by the drink was
adopted in Orange County, and although mixed drink sales
account for only 5 percent of total liquor revenue across the
state, area restaurants say the measure has helped their

Mixed drink sales were first permitted in Orange County in
November 1978; since then, more than 10 new restaurants
have opened in the Chapel 1 1111 area.
Even some restaurants which opened prior to the passage of
liquor by the drink said they had the possibility of future
mixed drinks in mind. "Our bar was built with that in mind,"
said Greg Overbeck, manner of Spanky's, which opened two
.years ao. - ' -''' . ,
"We couldn't afford to sell the quality and quantity of food
we serve without liquor," said Papagayo's manager Scott
Restaurants which sell mixed drinks must follow strict state ,
regulations. Food items must account for at least 51 percent of
an establishment's total sales.
But most restaurant owners say staying within the limit has
not been that difficult. Restaurant consultant Will Staubar
said most of Harrison's customers prefer beer and other
beverages; mixed drinks account for approximately 10 percent
of Harrison's sales, Staubar said.
Four Corners comes closer to the limit set by the state
Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, Although Spencer could
not quote an exact figure, he said Four Corners' mixed drinks
sales accounted for close to half of their total profit.
He also said serving mixed drinks was expensive because of
the heavy state tax on liquor. There is a $1.83 tax per 750
milliliters (approximately one-fifth of a gallon) of liquor.
Orange County ABC Board member Benton Efland said
mixed drink sales, authorized in more than 40 outlets across
the county, accounted for close to 10 percent of all sales.
Orange County ranks fourth in NortlvCroIina liquor sales,
behind Mecklenburg County, Wake County and Guilford
County, Efland said.

' Several fraternity parties were "closed
down" Thursday . night and one
University student was arrested after
Chapel Hill police determined that the
noise level at the parties exceeded the
legally allowed decibel limit.
Because Monday was a holiday, police
records were closed and the exact
number of parties which were asked to
quiet down could not be verified. Chapel
Hill police Capt. Arnold Gold said he
would guess that police had gone to
three or four parties Thursday and asked
the participants to lower the volume

noise complaints have risen 30 percent
since last year at this time. Most of the
complaints concern fraternity parties,
Gold said. "There are certain
fraternities we seem to have more
problems with," he said.
Under the noise ordinance, groups
can obtain special permits from the
police department to exceed the limit of
55 decibels by 20 decibels until midnight
on weekends and 11 p.m. on
But Gold said that police Chief
Herman Stone is considering making
some administrative changes which
would make it easier for police to
control the parties.
"There have been reports of officers
being verbally abused and there was one
party that was so crowded that the police
couldn't close it, . They thought their

Though Chapel Hill police say the
number of complaints from town
residents about noisy student parties are
up this year from last year, several
residents, who live near University
sororities and fraternities said Sunday
the noise really didn't bother them.
The residents were contacted by The
Daily Tar Heel at random . '

from Fraternity Court. "I've been

said. If a policeman thinks a party is too
loud, he can measure the decibel level
without a complaint having been made
by a resident.
The Town Council is reviewing the
noise ordinance to eliminate possible
ambiguities and to improve its
effectiveness, Boulton said. Town
Manager Gene Shipman said the council
"must react to a series of real problems
in the perspectives of citizens," and that
the review of the two-year-old ncise
ordinance began three weeks before the
start of the fall semester.
Student Body President Bob Saunders
said he planned to discuss the noise
ordinance at a meeting Thursday with
the mayor and student leaders.
"Students see it (the noise ordinance) as
too restrictive and the town sees it as too
lax," he said. The shcrt-term noise
problem eventually will resolve itself
because the number of parties usually
decreases after the Labor Day weekend,
Saunders said. He said the Icr.g-ttrm

Delta sorority, agreed. "There is some
noise, naturally, with all those girls
staying over there, but it doesn't bother
us," she said. But she added that she
doesn't think students should be allowed
to play music as loud as they want at
parties. "And I don't think I should be
allowed to, either," she said.
Since 1978, the town has an ordinance
limiting noise to 55 decibels. Groups can
apply for a permit to allow them to
exceed the limit by 20 decibels but only

Artists give free rein to imagination
By ANN PETERS
If you think your life needs some spicing
up, the International Fish Exhibition at the
Wesley Foundation through Sept. 13 offers a
salty assortment of the bizarre.
The creation of Lillian Jones, a junior
UNC art student, and Gtnny Campbell, a
UNC art graduate, the exhibition involves
more than 35 artists who have created a
variety of abstract and conceptual art around
the theme of "fish."
Their concepts have materialized into
original works which display the creatures in
a variety of circumstances.
The creations range from conventional
etching and acrylics to the more unusual'
mobiles, sculptures, jewelry and food
The creators said they wanted an atypical
theme. "Fish is not a very conventional
ld:at" Campbell said. "We didn't want very
conventional art or use cf materials. We tried
to take a common everyday subject and
portray it in an out of the ordinary, abstract
"The idea of fish is a great versatile
theme," Jones said.
Many of the works received some unusual
glances. Jones' "Speaking Fish" was one.
The brightly colored creation made out of
balsa wood, paper and paint resembled a fish
in every aspect except tfiat within the body
was a car stereo speaker. The "fish" was
hooked up to a tape player. It played rather
unique sounds Jones recorded to give the
impression of the sea. These sounds echoed
from within the "fish."
"We encouraged the artists not to make
just the typical art," Jones said. Some fish
sculptures were created out of wood,
aluminum, concrete and clam shells. Among
other unconventional pieces of art was ?!ark
Kcppkr's "Concrete Fish," designed to
resemble a sailfish and made with broken
glass and Coke bottles. But the food pieces
drew the most attention, Campbell said. The
abstract food works included "Fish in
Aspic," made with fish and lemon jcllo,
Jones "Fish in Blender" and Campbell's
"Out of the Frying Pan," created with three
large mouth bass heads, a skillet and plastic.
Although most of the works are, for sale,

Propooed tax cut
Dy JONATHAN PJCII
Spurred by a combination of real economic need
and election year politics, the question of a national
tax cut has become Washington's most hotly
contested issue in recent weeks. The argument does
not center so much on whether a cut is necessary,
but how and when the tax break should be
' An analysis
Since Ronald Reagan's call earlier this month for
a 30 percent tax cut, President Jimmy Carter, Sen.
Edward Kennedy, The Senate Finance Committee
and the Joint Economic Committee all have issued
their own tax cut proposals.
Rejecting arguments that a tax cut implemented
now would be inflationary, the Senate Finance
Committee recently approved a $39 billion tax cut
that would go into effect on Jan. 1.
Sen Russe! B. Long, D-La., the fir.ar.ee committed
chairman, defended the cuts as vital to combating
unemployment and recession. "It vull fiht
inflation, it will increase jobs, it will increase
production and it will help bring us out of the
recession," he said.
One of the committee's major concerns, taid Bill
Morris, an aide to Lcr.j, v. as the r.ccd for an
immediate tax cut to compensate for increased
income and social security taxes effective at the
beginning of 1931..
"Americans are facing an $37 billion increase in
taxes during 1931," Morris said. "As only $40
billion are involved in the cut, no inflationary
effects are projected. It should have a positive effect
on investment and productivity." Republican
calls for tax cuts and Democratic proposals to
create billion-dollar jobs programs are not the right
way to fight the current recession, the Joint
Economic Committee recently stated.
Criticizing these proposals as hit-or-miss
reactions that treat recessions as short-term
emergencies, the panel of economic experts called
on Congress to take a fcr.g-term view, including
using half a proposed tax cut r.ext year to increase
productivity and restructuring jobs programs.
, In reaction to the Reagan and Senate llnar.ee
Committee proposal, Carter was forced last week
to unveil his own economic phn. As part cf a
sweeping till to revitalize the American economy'
and create 1 million new jobs, he call: J for $27.6
