Homemade brew offered in Carrboro store
By DAVID ROME
DTH Staff Writer
The Beer-Drinking Capital of the World could become
the Home Beer-Making Capital of the World due to the
efforts of Leigh Beadle.
Beadle runs Specialty Products International, which
consists of a home beer-brewing mail order, wholesale
and retail business and an outlet store on Main Street in
Beadle began producing home beer-making supplies
about eight years ago. Until then, all the ingredients had
to be shipped in from overseas. Now Beadle's Chapel
Hill brewery supplies home brewers all over the country
with malt in about 150 stores like the one in Carrboro.
Beadle admitted that the government only "legalized
beer-making in this country about two years ago."
Home-brewing was never actually illegal before it was
legalized according to Beadle. "People were making it
all along whether it was legal or not."
Beadle has simplified the process of home-brewing
and put the essential ingredients (barley malt, brewers'
corn syrup and hops) into one neat, relatively inexpen
sive, "all-natural" package. The home-brewer only
needs to add water and yeast, and he or she can choose
from three varieties Pilsner Light, Octoberfest
Amber, and Brock Dark.
For $36, a beer enthusiast can purchase a complete
set-up and make the equivalent of two cases of beer.
Beadle added that the equipment would pay for itself
after the second batch, and the eventual cost works out
to only about 15 cents a bottle.
Beadle said, however, that although making one's
own beer was cheaper than buying it, people "do it
because it tastes better." ,
Another reason for brewing one's own beer is know
ing exactly what is or is not in it. By law, domestic beer
can contain any one of 59 chemical additives including
tannin and enzymes to chill it, calcium disodium
enthylenediamine-tetraacetate to prevent gushing,
sodium hydrofulfite to prevent oxidation, and caramel
and tree coal tar dyes for artificial colorings.
In Germany, a person can be put in jail for adding
anything but water and the ingredients Beadle sells. .
Naturally,, health food stores are finding out about
Beadle's brewery and becoming an increasing part of his
Beadle's most famous client, however, is probably
Lissa Hamilton of Chapel Hill who has been brewing her
own beer for the last two years. Hamilton entered her
three varieties of beer in a National Home-Brewers'
Association competition in Boulder, Colorado last year
and won prizes in each of those three categories.
"It's definitely the best (beer) I've ever tasted, and it's
cheap!" she said.
Like Beadle, Hamilton loves to have people try her
beer to find out for themselves that "it's really a superior
beer, especially if you like the European taste." She also
appreciated the fact that it does not have any additives,
and that it "ages out like wine." She also spoke highly of
the aroma, warmth, and full body of home-made beer.
Hamilton agreed with Beadle that the procedure is not
complicated. "After the first batch', you're going to be
an expert," she said.
AMA revamps services:
new meal plans, decor
are primary alterations

During the past few years, com
plaints about University food services
have been common. But this year stu
dents should see some changes, Gary
Ponton, assistant to the director of
ARA Services, Inc., said Thursday.
ARA has completed cosmetic chan
ges and reorganized meal plans in
Chase Cafeteria, the Pine Room and
the Fast Break. "We've spent a great
deal of money on all three places,"
Cosmetic changes included painting
the interior of Chase, replacing the
curtains with blinds and placing a pre
served tree in the middle of the new
salad, bar. Other, more extensive,
changes were the addit ion of a 150-seat
' banquet hall in the Pine Room, new -registers
in the Fast Break and a
30-item salad bar at Chase.
One of the most drastic changes is
in the type of meal plan offered. This
year students deposit either $450 or
$600 and receive a card in exchange.
Each time an item is purchased, a com
puter records the amount and subtracts
it from the student's account. At the
end of the school year any unspent
money will be refunded.
Last year there were basically two
plans the Board plan at Chase,
through which patrons paid a set price
for an all-you-can-eat meal and a plan
through which the patron planned to
eat 10, 14 or 19 meals a week.
The new plan was introduced last
fall, in conjunction with the other two
plans. Students responded favorably .
to the new program, Ponton said, so
this year it is the only plan available.
The staff members are also relatively
new, and some have been replaced.
"We've made many changes in the ser
vice personnel, including the people
on the front line," Ponton said. He
said also that the personnel had been
instructed to act more courteously to
the students and that any worker fail-v
ing to do so would be removed from
the front line.
Ponton cited former food services'
reputations as causing publicity prob-
lems for ARA. He said that at the be
ginning of this year a dinner was held
for all the resident assistants and other
housing officials. Each participant was
-then "asked to return, at their own dfsX
cretion, to further evaluate the new
The University Dining Services ex
ceeded their goal of 1 ,500 participants.
"We were up to 1,700 the last time I
checked," Nancy Curry, an ARA of
Students seem to have varying opin
ions of the new system. Some students
dislike specific aspects of the program.
"Last semester they didn't weight the
salads in the Pine Room. They just
had a set price, which I think was
$1.60," Angela Bowling, a junior from
Raleigh said. Bowling, who is not on
the meal plan but eats occasionally at
the Pine Room, said she had to pay

Julie Dickerson, a senior from Kin

"I like half a salad so it's good forme."
She said also that the new plan was
convenient. "I'd rather carry a card

On South Campus
Many face parMiigm

An error by the executive branch of Student Gov
ernment caused a majority of residents of Scott Resi
dence College to receive S-4 "parking permits instead
of S-5, even though under Campus Governing Coun
cil laws many should have received S-5 permits.
S-5 permits allow parking in Ram's Head parking
lot and along Stadium Drive.
Approximately 80 residents of Avery, Parker and
Teague were assigned S-5 permits through preregistra
tion, when under CGC laws, 157 S-5 permits were to
be issued to Scott College residents.
This mistake was the result of an attempt to arrange
the parking situation to make it fairer to everyone,
Student Body President Scott Norberg said Thursday.
Over the summer, when the traffic office asked
Student Government for an updated apportionment
list, the new list changed the percentages between
commuters and residents for several parking areas.
The problem occurred because of a change in the
number of commuters who received parking on North
Campus in N-4A and N-4. For two years 50 percent
of the parking spaces in N-4A and N-4 have been as-"
signed to commuters and 50 percent assigned to resi
dents of North Campus.
This year," the decision was made to. return North
Campus parking to 90 percent residents and 10 per
To make up for lost N-4 spaces, commuters were
given more S-5 stickers. Residents of Avery, Parker
and Teague were assigned 16 percent of the spaces in
. S-5 while commuters took up 84 percent of the spaces.
Formerly, S-5 was divided evenly between commuters
and residents. Most SRC residents received S-4 stick
ers, which permit parking near Morrison, Ehring
haus and Hinton James residence halls.
But no change in parking arrangements was ever
brought before the CGC.
To change them legally, there should have been a
vote by the CGC. But a mistake was made over the
summer, and the traffic office received the new ap
portionment that had not been approved.
In an effort to satisfy SRC residents, Transporta
tion Committee Chairman Sally Hadden said that in
24 hardship cases, S-5 permits would be given to resi
dents in exchange for their S-4 stickers.
The Transportation Committee is given the author
ity by Norberg to distribute 50 spaces to students who
need cars on campus for academic, employment,
health or other special reasons.
Melissa Morgan, governor of SRC, proposed that
students receiving stickers for reasons other than
health be given S-4 stickers so that students in SRC
could have the S-5 permits, which allow parking closer
to their residence halls.
Norberg said he sympathized with the SRC resi
dents but that he had to look at the overall equity of
the situation. By moving commuters from N-4 to S-5
parking, students of North Campus no longer had to
walk to South Campus to reach their cars. Residents
of Avery, Parker and Teague are located closer to S-4
Norberg said the 50-50 split of parking on North
Campus was a two-year experiment the committee
had decided was not successful. "The essential shift
is a good one," Norberg said.
Norberg said he took full responsibility for the
confusion. "We were looking to make positive im
provements." Norberg said he spoke with CGC speaker ElChino
Martin about the incident. "I talked to ElChino;
their reaction was that mistakes will happen," Nor
Norberg said he would take the new apportionment
to the Rules and Judiciary Committee of CGC. The
committee will be working out any revisions, and
then the new plan will be brought before the CGC for
For now, there is not much SRC students with S-4
permits can do.
Ellen Goldberg, CGC District 10 representative for
SRC, went to the traffic office late Thursday after
noon to find out if there was a chance for SRC stu
dents to get more spaces. Goldberg said she saw little
chance of improving the situation for this semester
but that she hoped to try to avoid the problem next
Martin was not hopeful about changes this semes
ter. "From a practical standpoint, there is not much
we can do. From a legal standpoint, we probably can,
but that would mean taking stickers out of people's
hands," Martin said.
SRC residents are still angry about the mix-up.
SRC resident David Hillsbrove's tar was hit by a
baseball while parked in an S-4 area near Ehringhaus.
, "I felt like we should have gotten the ones (spaces)
that were allocated to us. I felt like we got ripped off,"

Area tow agencies
do h ris k bus iness
as locals complain
By STEVE GRIFFIN .
DTH Staff Writer
Business for local car towing agencies has picked up in the past
week due to increased enforcement of parking ordinances by the
Chapel Hill Police Department, and the, municipal tow lot was
at times a lively place to be.
Several UNC students and a faculty member are included in
the list of those who have returned to the site where they parked
only to discover their cars had been taken to the tow lot on
Airport Road. 7 . ; '
The number of cars towed since Monday has ranged from five
to eight per day. Most of the violations occurred on Cameron
, Avenue between the Carolina Inn and the back side of Granville
Phoebe Azar, a UNC senior from Raleigh and a resident of
Graham Court Apartments on Cameron Avenue, returned from
class Wednesday to find that her car had been towed.
"It was in a dirt lot outside my apartment where I'd been park
ing off and on for a month. The police said I was blocking a side
walk, but there is nothing but dirt there," she said. .
Azar said she would appeal to Police Chief Herman Stone to
recover the $18 towing and storage fee.
"I'm really ticked off about the whole thing. If there is a.
sidewalk anywhere near where I parked, it can't be seen," Azar,
' said. . ' ' - . '
A faculty member who asked not to be identified was towed
on Wednesday from Cameron Avenue. He explained that in the
past he walked to school but he had since moved to the rural
area surrounding Chapel Hill and Carrboro. ,
"I had been told I could park on Cameron by another faculty
member,, so 1 did. The only sign I could see indicated a bus stop
' but I was not near that," said the sociology professor.
"It was only that afternoon that I saw the tow-away signs. It
was probably carelessness on my part, but I hate it happened. I
think it's dreadful the way the parking situation is here."
The average cost of retrieving a car is $18, which includes
. both the towing and storage fee. An additional $2 is assessed for
each day the car is left in the municipal lot.
Police Chief Herman Stone said although there had been some
recent problems with illegal parking, he has seen worse times.
"We have had better compliance with the parking regulations
than is ordinary for this time of year. We've given some leeway,

Some professors at the University of
North Carolina's five black schools have
been told to complete their doctoral de
grees or give up their jobs.

seeks to upgrade the quality of education

Raymond Dawson on Thursday.
"The suit charged the system with vio
lating Title IV by providing black institu
tions and students with benefits and ser
vices which were different and inferior to
those provided at white institutions,"
According to the provision, all full
time professors at the schools must earn
doctorates or appropriate professional
degress in order to be re-appointed. This
will be enforced as teachers' contracts run
out, Dawson said.
"We got our notice of this from (UNC
President William) Friday on July 29 and
will send out letters notifying the effected
teachers around Nov. 30," Patterson said.:
Director of Public Information at
Fayetteville State University Coletha
Powell said, "All new faculty members -that
are being hired must have doctorates
or a comparable degree in a similar area
where doctorates are not available.
"Those applicants for positions who
do not have the doctorate must be ap

can be hired," Powell said;

situation "do end up turning out a higher .

Dawson said that while the ruling had

27 percent of its faculty possessing doc

Town to sell abandoned autoo
Does the thought of buying a slightly
used Cadillac or Lincoln automobile for
less than $100 make you slightly suspici
ous of the car's quality or of the seller?
Consider that the dealer in this case is
the Town of Chapel Hill, which will be
offering ten automobiles for sale Sept. 1.
All have been either junked or abandoned
in the past year and stored in the munici
pal tow lot.
Capt. Amos Home of the Chapel Hill
Police Department estimated that the cars
would sell for $50 to $100 apiece but
warned any bargain seekers not to become
"They're mostly joke cars," said
Home. "We recovered one on Rosemary
Street because the engine blew up while
the owner was driving and he abandoned
it on the spot."

Police Parking Compound on Airport
Road at 2:00 p.m.
The revenue will go into the city's
general fund. -
"We'll be lucky to get 50 bucks for
some of them. As far as I know, none of
them run and none have been started in
the six months to a year they've been
there. I'm not even sure if we have keys to
some of them," Home said. ,
This will be the first such auction that
the town has ever held and Home said it
would be a private sale with an informal
style of bidding.
"I don't expect a crowd to storm the
place for these cars," said Home. "Peo

can get any spare parts that they can use."
