With University Lake at 36.5 inches below
the dam, Orange Water and Sewer Authority
officials are considering countywide voluntary
Everett Billingsley, executive director of
OWASA, said Wednesday the association may
ask the mayors of Chapel Hill and Carrboro
and the County Commission chairman to
enact Phase I of the drought ordinances. Both
towns and the county passed similar
ordinances years ago. Phase I calls for a
voluntary cutback in water use.
Billingsley said OWASA will check the water
supply, the weather outlook and water
consumption in the next few days before
reaching a decision. University Lake has been
going down at a rate of 1 to 1 Vt inches a day,
A warden at the lake Wednesday said the
sandbar, upon which boats were beached that
afternoon, is usually covered by about three
feet of water.
Under the various ordinances, Chapel Hill
Mayor Joe Nassif, Carrboro Mayor Bob
Drakeford and County Commission Chairman
Richard Whitted would have to issue a
proclamation, Billingsley said. "We would
make as much formal notice to the public as
we can," he said. "We already have a constant
conservation program Phase I is slightly more
stringent, but it does bring force to the minds
of the community of our concern."
Whitted said Wednesday the commission
would comply with an OWASA request.
Nassif and Drakeford could not be reached for
During tha bst wctcr zhortzzo. tha
level of University Lcks dropped 02.5
inches below cepscity.
Under Phase I, OWASA would suggest 10
ways to conserve water. They include taking
four-minute showers instead of baths, turning
faucets off while shaving, limiting the use of
dishwashers and washers and running them
only at full'capacity, reducing the watering of
lawns and plants, washing cars only when
necessary and turning off air conditioners.
If University Lake goes 43 inches below the
dam, OWASA may request that Phase II of
the ordinance be put into effect. Phase II
would have more restrictions on water use and
would be enforced by the police, Billingsley
During August and September of 1977 vhen
University Lake was 82.5 inches below full,
Phase III was enacted. Watering lawns and
washing cars were prohibited along with the
use of air conditioners. Water could only be
served in restaurants on request, and gardens

ALEXANDRIA, Egypt (AP) Egypt and Israel
agreed Wednesday to resume the stalled Palestinian
autonomy talks in the coming weeks and to prepare
for a summit with the United States after the U.S.
presidential election in November.
The development came one month after Egypt
suspended, the talks over displeasure with Israel's
declaration that all Jerusalem, including the Arab
populated eastern sector, was its eternal capital.
President Jimmy Carter and his Middle East
trouble-shooter, Sol Linowitz, announced the talks
Linowitz' s announcement came after a 45-minute
meeting with Egyptian President Anwar Sadat. The
meeting followed two days of talks with Israeli
Prime Minister Menachem Begin in Tel Aviv.
Sadat proposed such a summit after he suspended
the talks oyer the Israeli law, passed in late July, but
he had little to say about the agreement.
Begin called the development "very positive,"
and added, "We are satisfied."
The brief statement read by Linowitz here said:
"On behalf of President Sadat and Prime
Minister Begin I am authorized to make the
"First, both parties agreed that they are and
remain firmly committed to the Camp ' David
accords and process and are convinced that they
offer the only viable path toward comprehensive
peace in the Middle East. Both are determined to
see the process through to a successful conclusion
regardless of temporary difficulties that may arise
along the way.
"Second, the parties recognize that for
negotiations to succeed, they must rest on firm
foundations of mutual trust and friendship, and
they undertake to strengthen that foundation in the
"Third, the parties agree to resume the autonomy
negotiations at a mutually agreed date and to
consult regarding the preparations, timing end
venue of a summit meeting."
At about the same time, Carter told labor leaders
in Washington that the negotiations would resume
in the next few weeks and that Egypt and Israil had
agreed to hold another Mideast summit with him
later this year.
Carter quoted the statement as saying the two
Mideast leaders "are deeply committed to the Camp
David peace process. They will recommence the
negotiations for peace sometime within the next few
weeks and they both approved a reconvening of the
summit conference later on this year at an
appropriate time that will be convenient for all of
Linowitz's statement did not, however, mention
Israel's claims for Jerusalem. Sadat and other
Egyptian leaders have maintained in the past that
Israel must soften its position on Jerusalem before
Egypt would resume negotiating.
Part of the reason for the freeze in negotiations
on autonomy for the 1.2 million Palestinians living
in the West Bank of the Jordan River and the Gaza
Strip has been Israel's insistence that it continue to
control Arab East Jerusalem.

The University's medical technology program is in
full operation this year despite an almost complete
faculty turnover and a low number of students entering
the program this fall.
The program has a new director, Jo Helen
Cronenberger, as well as three new faculty members. A
new faculty position also has been added to the
program's four-member teaching staff.
This year the med tech program admitted only 14
students, although the program had space for 24. The
small number of students admitted coupled with the
faculty changes had prompted rumors among some
students that the med tech program was to be
discontinued within the next few years.
But Robert Sakata, director of Medical Allied
Health Professions, said the University has no plans to
phase the program cut. "In fact, wc are in the planning
stage for a master's degree, in the program," he said.
,; Medical Technology dfals with laboratory analysis
of biological material. Med tech majors may work in
various laboratory jobs. A med tech degree may enable
a graduate to work in hospital labs as well as in private
research institutions, pharmaceutical testing,
administration, teaching and sales.
A student who wants to enter the med tech program
must apply for entrance by Jan. 1 of his sophomore
Though former students in the program complained
of a strain last year between faculty members,
Cronenberger, director since July 1, said any personnel
problems have been solved.
"There is absolutely no problem that I'm aware of
now," she said. "We have a very cooperative system."
Sakata said that the faculty changes were made for
several reasons, but that none of the former faculty
members were denied tenure.
Barbara Kramer, assistant vice chancellor for health f ,
affaires greed with Sakata's assessment of the state of f ,
the program last year. "
"Students were in a double bind. It was a case of '
lack of communication," she said. "Some of it w as
pure personality conflict." ;
Cronenberger replaced acting director Sharon Parker I
in July. Parker resigned her post to go to the University N
of West Virginia. Parker served as acting director after ' x
director Joann Stephan left the post in January 1979. ' j
Stephan is now director of Medical Allied Health S -
Professions at Columbia University. She said last week
that she left the UNC med tech program of her own
free will. "You can stay in a place too long," Stephan
said. "It was time for me to move on." Stephan was
not reappointed as director for the med tech program, i
Kramer said. Sakata said that Stephan was not - -
reappointed because "she did not have the full support
of the faculty."

their preference in the presidential, senatorial
and gubernatorial races.
On that day and on Sept. 22 students will be
given the chance to register to vote in the Nov.
4 elections. Registrars for Orange County will
register students in Woollen Gym Sept. 22 and
29 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
"The big thing is the combination of the
registrars on campus and the mock election at
the same time," said Robbie Hasscl, Student
Government chairman of national affairs.
"Lots of students haven't voted before and
this will encourage students to register to vote
and make students think about the choices
they will have to make."
Hasscl said the election should educate
students about national issues through forums
that will be held before the election for
Voting sites will be Woollen Gym and the
Carolina Union. The election is open to all
undergraduate students and graduate students.
"We've never had a real mock election like
this before," Hr:.:l said. "Vcter registration

have at least 50 percent of the students to
participate, especially with such issues as the
