Although its impact on UNC students
who have signed contratts has not been
determined, an incident in which a privately-owned
rental service solicited refri
gerator rentals, without the University's
permission has been resolved, a Student
Affairs official said Wednesday.
The company, Student Services Co. of
Arlington, Va., has been told that its soli
citation on Aug. 22 was in violation with
a state law that prohibits commercial so
licitations on campus without a permit,
said James O. Cansler, associate vice
chancellor for Student Affairs.
"It's cleared up in the sense that they
understand the policy," Cansler said. "We
said they're free to advertise in newspapers
or by mail, but they were not free to come
on campus and solicit."
The problem began, Cansler said, when
the company delivered to students leaflets
advertising the rental service.
Later, Parker Residence Hall staff
members challenged the representatives
of the company who were attempting to
deliver refrigerators to students.
"Apparently the driver called the own
ers and then left," said Jody Harpster, an
associate director of University Housing.
"But that was already after they had de
"They were asked to leave the campus
by the campus police and they did,"
Cansler said. "If they had stayed, then
they would have been arrested."
It could not be determined immediately
how many students had rented refrigera
tors from Student Services or how the
incident would affect any contracts that
have been signed.
A representative of the company said
today that the incident was the result of a
-misunderstanding :and had been cleared
"Obviously UNC was more strict about
its licensing," said Paul Jost, president of
Student Services Co." He (Cansler) made
the regulation clear to us. Now we know
the rule, and I think we have resolved it."
Jost said his company would seek ad
. vertising through newspapers and by mail
in an attempt to continue refrigerator
rental on campus.
"From what I understand, we're allow
ed to make the deliveries, but not put up
the leaflets," he said. "We're allowed to
deliver, but we have to get the or'ders
through the students calling us, not
Cansler likened the situation to restau
rants' that deliver orders on campus.
"The distinction is that the restaurant
is free to deliver at the request of the stu
dent," he said. "They are not free to set
up a stand and say 'call us.'
"They can't go through the dorm and
solicit," he said.
The regulation was adopted to protect
students from businesses of unknown
credibility, Harpster said.
"We have to make sure that the busi
ness could be dealt with if there was
some trouble with the service," he said.
"If people have trouble with some unli
censed company then we run the risk of
not being able to get in touch to solve the

Three unrelated water pipe breaks dur
ing a 24-hour period Tuesday and Wed
nesday caused many Orange Water and
Sewer Authority customers to have murky
water, and one of the breaks forced the
closing off of much of Chapel Hill's Estes
Drive. " '
A Wednesday morning break caused
murky, though still safe, water to flow
from faucets over much of the UNC cam
pus and the residential neighborhoods to
the immediate west of it.
Two of the breaks were caused by con
tractors digging near water mains, and
the third was caused naturally, said
Wayne Munden, OWASA's chief engi
neer. All three were in the Chapel Hill
The first break occurred about 4 p.m.
Tuesday on Smith Level Road south of
Carrboro, Munden said. A crew installing
a sewer main near a water pipe caused the
pipe to give way.
Munden said the crew did not actually
strike the pipe in digging, about a foot
away from it, but that the change in land
pressure resulting from the digging evi
dently caused the break.
The second break, the one that caused
students to discover brown water in their
sinks and toilets Wednesday, occurred

pictures are fantastic!" he said.
An estimated 1000 people crowded into
Morehead Planetarium or sat on the lawn
directly outside to watch the shots from
Voyager II Tuesday night. :
The people at Morehead took advan
tage of the last opportunity for at least
five years to see close-up views of other
planets. After its encounter with Saturn,
Voyager II will not transmit any more
planet photographs until it approaches
Uranus in 1986.
A possible equipment malfunction or
damage from flying particles now has the
camera on the Voyager II satellite pointed
toward outer space instead of its target,
Saturn. But this development will not
keep the Morehead Planetarium from
presenting its scheduled program "Saturn
Encounter" at 8 p.m. tonight and Friday.
Jenzano said that if live pictures were not
available, computer enhancements of pre-
people, 1.8 million more than now. "And
that's a bunch of new folks to account
for," Matthews said.
One startling prediction in the report
concerns the state's elderly population:
By the year 2000, 71 percent of the state's
residents will be 65 or older. "Once you
see these trends you start asking, 'What
does it mean in terms of health care?',"
Matthews said. "Do your values shift
