s filling today
By DIANE LUPTON
DTH Staff Writer
What will appear to onlookers as a trickle of water beyond two
9-foot gates in Chatham County this morning will actually be
the start of the fifth largest man-made lake in North Carolina.
The B. Eve rett Jordan Reservoir will begin filling with water
about 1 1 a-m. today after Col. Robert Hughes, commander of
the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers district headquarters in Wil
mington, pulls the knobs which close the gates of the dam.
The filling of the lake will not be immediately noticeable.
"It'll be some days before you notice any major change,"
Hughes said. "It depends on the rainfall. It may take several
days or even several weeks before there is any noticeable change."
With normal rainfall, Hughes said, the lake should take ap
proximately two months to fill. Although he did not know the
exact number of square miles of water the lake will contain,
Hughes said approximately 38,000 acres made up the entire
reservoir project. . '
- There will be no official opening ceremony for the lake until
the spring, Hughes said, but the public is invited to attend today's
The lake will be filled by a series of mechanical devices which
adjust water flow through the gate to 100 centimeters per sec
ond, Hughes said.
"We'll be impounding anything above that rate which comes
The normal elevation of the dam is 157 feet above sea level,
Hughes said. The lake will be allowed to fill up to only 190 feet
at first, to allow the Corps to finish some work. In January, the
lake will be allowed to reach its normal 216-foot level.
The purposes of the lake are flood control, enhancement of
water quality below the dam, provision of water for Orange,
Chatham, Wake and Durham counties and recreation, Hughes
W. Everett Billingsley, executive director of the Orange Water
and Sewer Authority, said OWASA preferred using the Cane
Creek reservoir project as the county's water source instead of
But Billingsley said evaluations of the long-term effects of the
lake and its water quality would be taken into consideration.
Hughes said it would take about three years for the state sani
tation department to test the lake's water.
The lake is located where the community of Farrington once
stood. The actual site is approximately 25 miles from Chapel Hill.

Bombs have exploded over all parts of the
globe in the last four days, causing property
damage, injuries and death to key political
figures. And a new wave of violence and des
truction aimed primarily at the United States
erupted Monday in Peru and in Germany.
In the aftermath of Sunday's assassination
bombing, Iranian crowds mixed sobs of mourn
ing with chants of "Death to America!" Mon
day as the nation buried its president and prime
minister as martyrs cut down in the incident.
President Mohammad Ali Rajai, who held
the office for 27 days before his death, and
Prime Minister Mohammad Javad Bahonar, in
office for just 25 days, were buried in Tehran's
Behesht Zahra Cemetery in services that drew a
crowd reportedly numbering 2.5 million people.
In a speech broadcast by Tehran Radio,
Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini promised new
elections to replace the "martyrs," vowing their
deaths would not alter the course of the Islamic
fundamentalist revolution that he leads.
It was the second time in two months that
Khomeini's top Islamic leadership has been
wiped out in blasts and fire.
On June 23, an explosion at the headquarters
of the ruling Islamic Revolutionary Party killed
Ayatollah Mohammad Hussein Beheshti, con
sidered the second-most powerful figure in Iran
after Khomeini, and more than 70 other leaders.
As the funeral procession wound through the
streets of Iran, mourners demanded the deaths
of ex-President Abolhassan Bani-Sadr and op
position Mujahadeen Khalq leader Massoud
Rajavi. Both fled to Paris in a dramatic July 29
escape aboard a commandeered air force plane.
The presidential council's statement blamed
the bombing on the United States and on the
secular opposition groups that have waged a
nine-week campaign of urban guerrilla warfare.
Rajavi is the leader of the Islamic-Marxist
Mujahedeen Khalq that has been the most active
Both Rajavi and Bani-Sadr, in separate tele
phone interviews with the Associated Press in
Paris, said the responsibility was Khomeini's
because his rigid policies have given rise to the
"He tried by all means to impose a dictator
ship in Iran," Bani-Sadr said. "He is responsi
ble for this."
At the Ramstein Air Base in West Germany, a
bomb believed planted by terrorists exploded
outside the joint U.S.-NATO air command
headquarters Monday, wounding a U.S. gene
ral, 17 other Americans and two West Germans.
The blast came at a time of growing opposi
tion by many West Germans to' U.S. defense
policies. Two weeks ago an American military
facility in Berlin was bombed, but there were ho

morning's explosion. West German sources said
it was believed to have come from a bomb plac
ed in a Volkswagen sedan in a parking lot out
side the headquarters buildings of the U.S. Air
Force Europe and the NATO air command.
The explosion, which occurred at 7:20 a.m.,
caught early arrivals for work, hurled a passerby
to the ground, shattered windows and interior
walls up to 100 yards away and scattered other
cars across the lot in flames, witnesses said. A
car engine was flung onto the roof of a five-story
building, police said.
The most seriously injured were Brig. Gen.
Joseph D. Moore, assistant deputy chief of staff
for operations of U.S. Air Force Europe, and
Lt. Col. Douglas R. Young, an operations of
ficer with the USAFE command.
West Germans have staged numerous anti
war marches and rallies; some of them around
U.S. military garrisons. Signs reading "No
more war, Americans out" have been smeared
on walls in several cities. ,
And in Lima, Peru, seven separate explo-.
sions, including blasts at the U.S. Embassy and
the residence of Ambassador Edwin C. Coir, :
caused heavy damage and killed two people on
Monday, police reported.
The nearly simultaneous explosions shortly
after 2 a.m. EDT at the U.S. diplomatic instal
lations coincided with detonations at the Ford
Motor Co., the Bank of America, the local dis
tributors of Coca-Cola and the G. Berckemeyer
and Co. milk products administrative offices,
which represents Carnation Milk in Peru.
The seventh blast was at a private home where
a fire killed two people and injured seven
Police said damage at the industrial plants
was heaviest at the milk company. The metal
security door at the front entrance was blown
loose and a hole knocked in the building's front
wall, police said.
The other buildings also suffered wall damage
and shattered windows, but no injuries were
An embassy spokesman said someone threw
an explosive, believed to be several sticks of
dynamite, over the front gate at the embassy

The lawsuit charged that basing the election
of at least one member, solely on the basis of
race deprived the plaintiffs and others: of equal
protection under the law. All "of the plaintiffs
The suit did not challenge the other require
ments of the law.
"I don't think we'll appeal the decision,"
said UNC law student Ray Warren, one Of the
plaintiffs in the suit. "It seems to be grossly un
fair to judge according to race when race is not
supposed to be a factor in today's society."
Warren was a student at UNC-Wilmington
when the suit was filed.
Richard Voorhees, attorney for the plaintiffs,
said he was not in a position to comment on the
issue because he "just became attorney for the
case in the last day or two and (was) not totally
familiar with the details."
The plaintiffs were Warren, Anne N.
Cochran and David Andrew Boone of New
Hanover County and Rep. J. Reid Poovey,
Warren said the decision hot to appeal was
probable because "there is a companion case fil
ed by the UNC Student Government that we
think will prove approximately the same thing
we were trying to prove." -
Warren was referring to a lawsuit, filed in
1978 by two white former UNC students,
Robert Arrington and Lawrence Uzzell, against
the Campus Governing Council
The suit charged the CGC bylaws with dis
crimination against white students by requiring
that two minority members serve on the CGC
and that two members be appointed in the case
of any discrepancy based on sex.
From staff reports
Student Body President Scott Norberg said Mon
day night he would issue an executive order today for
the Student Legal Services to begin charging a $5 fee
for legal service after initial consultation.
Norberg will submit a bill to the Campus Govern
ing Council tonight outlining his plan for the user fee,
which was proposed after the CGC budget allocations
Student Legal Services, a non-profit organization
that provides free legal aid to University students, re
ceives almost 25 percent of the funds allocated by the
CGC as a source of revenue.
"I think it's a worthy experiment and should be
evaluated at the end of the semester to see if it's been
effective," Norberg said.
The experimental fee, to be charged for any legal
action an SLS lawyer must take beyond initial legal
advice, was to be implemented last week, but Norberg
said he decided to consult the SLS Advisory Board
before making a final decision.
The boardon Monday, issued an eight-page report
recommending against the user fee, saying it could
deter students from using SLS and hurt the program
in the long run.
"I think it's an excellent report and points out what
we should watch, but I also think we have to act now,"
Norberg said. He added he would include a provision
allowing him to discontinue the program if he did not
think it was working properly.
SLS Advisory Board Chairman Randy Johnston,
By JONATHAN SMYLIE
DTH Staff Writer
who helped to write the report, said he was mostly
concerned with student perception of the legal ser
vice, which was established in 1975. He said students
might think that SLS was a fee-charging organization
and hesitate to use the service.
; Another concern expressed was whether the cost of
implementing such a fee would be worth the benefits
Johnston said only 10-to-20 percent of the students
who got initial advice returned for further consulta
tion and services.
SLS administrator and lawyer Dorothy Bernholz
would lose time with clients because of added admin
istrative duties, Johnston said.
An informal survey conducted by SLS of students
who used the summer service suggested most students
would be willing to pay a $5 fee, but some students
expressed negative attitudes.
Johnston said the $5 fee was much more complex
than a surface look revealed. He cited one case that
dealt with a shortage in parking spaces for apartment
tenants. The local complex did not have convenient
spaces and the manager continually towed tenants'
cars for parking in the wrong spaces at a cost of $35
to the students. SLS won numerous suits which re
quired the apartment management to reimburse the
. students. But before a student could bring suit, he
had to pay a $14 filing fee to t court. Johnston said
the added $5 fee might have, discouraged .students
from trying to regain their $35. '
However, Johnston said SLS would be willing to
cooperate with the council if it decided to impose the
Citing the need for a good leader and organizer,.
Student Body President Scott Norberg has appointed
Mark Jacobson as Elections Board chairman.
"The man is brilliant," Norberg said. "He will
have a top-notch Elections Board, because he can
identify in other people the necessary skills needed to
run a good election."
Jacobson, a junior English and American studies
major from Bloom, Minn., was one of three candi
dates Norberg had been considering since February.
"All the applicants were very good," Norberg
said, "but it was a matter of looking at who had the
best combination of talents to do the job."
Jacobson's appointment must be approved by the
Campus Governing Council which meets tonight.
Norberg said Jacobson's working on a Daily Tar
Heel editorial campaign during elections last spring
"lends an excellent perspective on how elections
should be done."
"The basic function of the Elections Board is to
provide for a fair, well organized election,"
Jacobson said Sunday in an interview.
He said another of the Board's important respon
sibilities was tq "respond to complaints and appeals
and to correct any problems in the election process
which could effect the outcome of any race.
"I don't think the Board completely understood
and accepted those responsibilities," Jacobson said,
referring to last year's Elections Board.
"My first concern at this point is getting a wide
range of complimentary applicants," Jacobson said.
"The Election Board ought to represent all factions
and people on campus.
"I encourage anyone who is interested to apply
undergraduates, graduates, people with experience
and enthusiastic freshmen," Jacobson said, adding
that recruiting a good board would be the most dif
ficult part of the job.
Another area that Jacobson said needed special
attention was informing candidates and staff of elec
"I think that election laws are violated out of ig
norance and not out of malice," he said. y
Jacobson said that the new board would need to
look at the election laws to determine whether they
could be improved. He cited the number of polling
places and recording campaign expenses as two areas
of the laws that should be reviewed.
Students also have responsibilities in the election
process, Jacobson said.
"I would like to see students take a good look at
each candidate and judge them on the basis of their
ability and position on the issues," he said. "If every
body does that we will make good choices."

Bulletin boards on campus advertise for urxming
meetings, concerts and lectures. But many people
discover from reading the boards they can find
different ways to make and spend money.
If transportation is a problem, one can buy a used,
but operable, moped bicycle. Or a 1974 Pontiac is
available if pedaling doesn't strike the fancy. .
For those who prefer a more primitive form of
getting around, "Lee" will sell them English stirrup
irons and a Western stock bit to gallop in stylishly.
The overwhelming amount of announcements
seek roommates and advertise apartments available
in Chapel Hill and the surrounding area. More
permanent abodes are available also. Paul Kurtz
placed a notice in the Undergraduate Library about
his mobile home last week and says it has attracted
a lot of attention since.
"Yeah, as a matter of fact I've gotten more calls
from the flyers I've placed around campus than
from the ads I've placed in trade magazines," Kurtz
said. "Most of the inquiries I have had haven't been
serious ones though."
Most of the others contacted said they favored
classified advertising in such pubications as the
Daily Tar Heel and the Village Advocate since these
publications usually net more inquiries.
Some notices do not produce any responses at aU.
"This is the first call I've received," Sherry Sercy
told a reporter. "I've been taking calls for a friend

much, so I don't know how many people are calling."
If the price of some of the items for sale are unaf
fordable, one might try taking a part-time job. Be
sure what it is first. The Art Department offers
$4.02 an hour to model for their students. The
response has been overwhelming.
"We've received over 200 calls, but when people
find out exactly what it is, they're not interested,"
said Helen Langa, a department secretary. "It's
nude modeling. We've been hiring three or four
people to work on two-week stints."
