The ratification of the Equal Rights
Amendment in North Carolina has fired
up campus organizations both
supporting and opposing the passage of
The Association for Women Students
is working for the passage of the ERA,
and the newly formed Carolina for
Freedom organization is working to
block the amendment.
As an opponent of ERA, Carolina for
Freedom claims that the amendment is a
repetition of rights already guaranteed
to women under the Constitution.
"ERA is redundant. It provides no
further protection under the law," said
Chris Kramer, leader of Carolina for
Freedom. "We don't need more laws;
we need to change existing laws."
The organization also sees this
amendment as abolishing the right of the
wife to be supported by her husband,
creating major changes in child support
laws and affecting state funding for
"Concerning abortions, ERA won't
affect the number of abortions being
performed, but it will change the
funding of abortions," Kramer said.
North Carolina' is one of ten states
that uses state money to pay for
medically necessary abortions. Kramer
said passage of the ERA would increase
government funded abortions.
"ERA also creates major changes in
child support laws concerning husbands
and wives. The law now favors women
in that the husband is required to
support his wife and family," Kramer
said. "I'm not saying that this is right or
wrong; it's the way society functions."
As a proponent of ERA, Susan
Cohen, chairperson of the Association
for Women Students, said the
amendment strengthens the family by
allowing both partners to be equal and
by enhancing the wife's role by retaining
her legal rights after marriage.
"The Equal Rights Amendment
should be passed," Cohen said. "We
should, have equal rights under law for
both men and women.
Barb Huffman, treasurer of AWS,
said that she saw the passage of the
amendment as having a psychological
"It'll mean change, but it won't
happen overnight. It'll be more a spill
over of changes and events into the next
generation so that my children will see
more of the outcome than " we will
today," Huffman said.
The Equal Rights Amendment comes
before the North Carolina legislature in
the next session of the General

The Chapel Hill Transportation
Board voted Tuesday night to
recommend to the Town Council
that, beginning in January, D and A
bus routes be combined on

The proposed route would follow
Durham Boulevard from Piriegate
Apartments to University Mall, then
Franklin Street to the downtown
area, then Airport Road.
The net cost of the new service
would be about $2,800, and the
town could handle the expense
easily in its budget, Godding said.
Last year, the Transportation
Board recommended that the D and
A routes have Saturday service, but
the Town Council did not approve
the proposal because of a lack of
