Now it is fashionable to have two or
three pairs of them, in sensitive brown
for the daytime and a flashier beige tone
for evening wear. Or possibly, clear lenses
for the office and tinted ones to hide the
true meaning of your eyes from your date
at the disco.
Glasses are biz business today. No
longer does one have to wear that mun
dane brown pair of horn-rimmed glasses.
'Walking into the optician's or optom
etrist's office is like walking into a fashion
conscious world of vanity. Mirrors fill
the walls to . let the potential eye-glass
wearer see all aspects of the glasses.
i Dressing tables sit at various intervals
around the room so that one can be
comfortable while picking out glasses.
Racks and racks of glasses are placed in
between the mirrors for a collage effect.
People try on frames negotiating
not only for fit, but also for style, lenses,
tint and color.
"I wanted my frames to look appro
priate for my conception of myself, which
is a little conservative," said Charles
Pappas, 25, a graduate student in bio
chemistry. Shirley Cox, a sociology student said
she chose her glasses because "they
didn't make the shape of my face too
She felt her jaw was too broad, and
the rather square glasses took away from
the roundness of her face.
Students don't always think of the
cosmetic effect when they choose frames.
Some glasses are bought just for kicks.
New Wave glasses are especially pop
ular now with the onslaught of that typs
of music. Th? fantastically colored glasses
come in shapes that vary from goggles,
which cover the whole face, to glasses
patterned after the 3-D glasses worn to
movies in the '50s. They're available in
drug stores and variety stores.
"I bought these glasses especially for
this party," said a student who wished
only to be called Herb. "I think that
they cost all of $2."
He was sporting a pair of orange plas
tic glasses with vivid green lenses. Each
corner was pinched in a cat-like point to
give Herb's face the effect of a constant
Shirley Kohn at Dr. William Kohn's
optometry office on Franklin Street likes
the tailored classic look.
"I liked the dark coloring (brown)
with my light features," she said. "I
think they add a softness to my face."
Both Kohn and Lib Southern of Village
Opticians said the rimless look was very
big and had been for many years. .
"Rimless styles are very big and con
sidered to be the Cadillac of the eye wear
industry," Kohn said.

C!d four eyes is finely mzking it on tha popularity charts
... and with Oscar de la Renta they are going first class
The Annie Hall look seems to be the
most popular choice among college
women, and the Ivy League look is the
choice of most college men, Southern
Do people buy extra pairs of glasses
just to interchange them? "I do have
some people who buy a dressy pair for
the evening, especially young women,
and a more tailored look for the day, but
this is rare," Kohn said.
Southern, however, said it was more
than just rare. "People no longer wear
them until they fall off their faces."
- Specific looks, frame colors and lense
types are also important to the eyeglass
wearer, especially to women, Kohn said.
"Women are much more discriminat
ing than they used to be," Kohn said.
Kohn explained that a tint adds not
only to frame attraction, but adds color
to the wearer's face if the skin is rather
pale or sallow.
The more than 20 tints have such odd
names as Sahara, Jade and Rosetone.
"Since the designers are designing the
glasses, they are so much prettier,"
Southern said. "We carry 1,400 different
pairs of frames."
"There are styles by Gloria Vanderbilt,
Vves St. Laurent and Oscar de la Renta
among others. Famous people such as
Sophia Loren and Dorothy Hamill spon
sor other eyewear.
of 'faculty :hey to booM rental system
By DALE JENKINS
As an alternative to high textbook prices, Thomas A.
Shetley, general manager of the UNC Student Stores,
said Student Government had discussed with the Student
Faculty Stores Committee the possibility of renting
Each student at Carolina spends approximately $100
a semester for required textbooks. A rental program
would cut book prices to an average of $40 per semester,
but Shetley said that cooperation on the faculty's part
would be the answer to making the program work.
A mandatory rental system such as Appalachian State
University's requires a textbook to be used for three
years to recover initial costs, Robby Tripplett, director
of ASU's student store, said.
The major problem with this is that teachers feel they
are forced to use textbooks that are outdated, Shetley
'. The student store could purchase used books from
warehouses at cheap rates and pass these savings on to
students if the faculty agreed to using texts that were
not recent, he said.
Student Body President Bob Saunders, Doug Richard
son and Don Beeson visited ASU and did a survey of
the textbook rental system the ASU student store used
to distribute books. Surveys were also conducted at
UNC to find out how students and faculty members
felt about implementing a rental system.
"What we found out is that a total rental system for
UNC is just not feasible, due to graduate students'
courses and junior and senior courses in one's major,"
Saun8ers said. "There is a possibility for a limited
rental system for freshmen and sophomore in introduc
tory courses." .
The first step toward a new system that could work
effectively would be better communication between
faculty members and the student store, Saunders said.
He also said the progress in analyzing the new system
was where he had expected it to be at this time and that
he was pleased the candidates running for student body
president planned to further that progress.
Shetley felt the student store's hands were tied in the
situation. "I really don't think there is anything
(student stores) can do by ourselves. If faculty members
were to adopt an old edition, we could get textbooks
cheap and pass that savings on to the students," he
said. "The ball is in the faculty's court (as far as the
prices are concerned)."
Textbook prices have continued to increase over the
past years, yet Shetley added that the factors involved
in the price hikes could not be controlled by the student
store. . . .
Another problem is that publishers have a monopoly
and do not have to justify their prices to anybody,
Shetley said. Like all manufacturers, they depend on
borrowing for their capital. . : .-..'-' ;
Board to discuso ABC change
A proposed zoning ordinance amendment
which would allow ABC stores to be built in
"neighborhood business" districts is
scheduled for public hearing at 7:45 tonight
before the Carrboro Board of Aldermen.
The amendment would allow the state
Alcoholic Beverage Control Board to build a
store in any area of Carrboro now zoned B-3,
for "neighborhood business."
Most businesses in areas now zoned B-3 are
convenience stores, town planner Larry
Bclkin said. By ordinance definition, B-3
businesses serve a single neighborhood rather
than the entire town;- he said.
The Carrboro Planning Board voted 3-2
last Thursday to recommend against
approval of the ordinance change.
The aldermen also will hear opinions
tonight on a 23-townhouse development
proposed for a site on N.C. 54 across from
Old Well Apartments.
