first boycott of
By GELAREH ASAYESH
DTH Staff Writer
A Chapel Hill grocery store became the first in the nation to
participate in a boycott of the Nestle Corporation today when it
distributed grocery bags carrying information about the
boycott, the state's boycott coordinator said.
Fowler's Food Store on West Franklin Street began distri
buting 400 grocery bags a week bearing information on the
Nestle boycott. The store's owner, John Lyon, said he had
"reached no conclusions" concerning the boycott, but said the
bags would contain the message until January.
Lew Church, state coordinator for the Infant Formula Action
Coalition, said Monday the bags would carry the reasons for the
boycott, a list of Nestle products, the telephone number, the
address of the organization and a disclaimer from Fowler's.
The five-year-old nationwide boycott protests the sale of
Nestle baby formula in Third World countries, where opponents
of the sales say it provides inadequate nutrition and is abused as
a substitute for breastfeeding.
Church said an agreement with Lyon produced the action by
Fowler's to carry the message on their bags. "As far as I know,
there's been no such concession (like the agreement with
Fowler's) from a grocery store anywhere else in the United
States," he said.
Lyon, who said he agreed to the action after INFACT said
they would distribute leaflets at his store, said Monday he was
glad to cooperate with the group as far as he could.
"I told these people I would be glad to work with them until
January," he said, adding that he could make no promises to
sponsor the boycott after January. "I don't want to be hard and
callous, but we're in the grocery business and not in the boycott
business. We are glad to cooperate at this point in time," he
Fowler's also has agreed not to promote actively Nestle pro
ducts, to buy products from a wholesaler rather than direct
from the corporation's branch offices and not to place Nestle

Nestle products boycotted beginning today
... Fowler's first in nation to participate
products on special store discounts. Lyon said he would con
tinue to stock Nestle products as long as demand for them ex
isted. "I don't know what kind of economic impact it (the
grocery bag printing) will have on us, but either way it will be
negligible," he said.
Three other stores in the state have written to INFACT de
clining participation in the boycott, Church said. "A lot of the
(problem with the stores) are general misconceptions that our
general goal is for them to stop buying Nestle products," he
said. "But 1 think they are open to it (the suggestions)."
The group has asked stores to stop carrying Nestle products,
to stop promoting the products and to distribute leaflets on the
boycott. Nestles makes a variety of candies and other items such
as Stouffer's foods.

WASHINGTON The Senate, ending
an all-male tradition nearly two centuries
old, unanimously confirmed Sandra Day
O'Connor as an associate justice of the
Supreme Court on Monday.
O'Connor, a 51-year-old Arizona state
appeals judge, will be sworn in Friday in
timeto join the court for the opening of its
198U1982 term on Oct. 5.
The vote was 99-0, with only Sen. Max
Baucus, D-Mont., who was attending an
economic conference in his home state,
missing from the tally. He had supported
O'Connor in earlier committee action.
' 'Today (Monday) is truly a historic oc
casion," said Sen. Strom Thurmond,
R-S.C, chairman of the Senate Judiciary
Committee, leading off a series of 22
speeches in warm praise of President
Ronald Reagan's first high court nominee.
Hailing a "happy and historic day,"
President. Reagan said in a statement the
confirmation of his nominee "symbolizes
the richness of opportunity that still
abides in America opportunity that
permits persons of any sex, age or race,
from every section and walk of life, to
aspire and achieve in a manner never be
fore even dreamed about in human
As the vote neared, a small knot of con
servatives who had questioned O'Con
nors views on abortions fell into line be
hind her nomination.
. Jesse Helms, R-N.C, leader of the
most conservative bloc of Senate Repub
licans, voted . for O'Connor, saying
although she wouldn't say so publicly, he
believed she opposed the 1973 high court
decision legalizing most abortions.
Helms said that on the day Reagan an
nounced O'Connor would be his first
Supreme Court nominee, he met privately
in the White House with the president
and was assured O'Connor shared
Reagan's opposition to a national policy
of legalized abortions.
Sen. Joseph Biden of Deleware, the
senior Democrat on the judiciary panel,
said it was fruitless and risky to predict
how any Supreme Court nominee might
vote once he or she was sworn in.
"Once a justice dons those robes, enters
that inner sanctum across the road (in the
Supreme Court building)," Biden said,
"We have no control. All bets are off."
The late President Dwight Eisenhower
nominated Earl Warren believing he was
a "mainstream Republican," and he
turned out to be the most liberal chief
justice in Supreme Court history, Biden
Biden said O'Connor won such broad
support from conservatives and liberals
from both parties because she had supe
rior intellect, strong moral character and
the right temperament to be a judge.
"That's all I have a right to ask," said
Biden, criticizing conservatives who at
tempted to make O'Connor's views on
abortion the sole criterion on whether she
should be confirmed.
O'Connor will become the 102nd per
son to don the black robes of a Supreme
Court member since the court was created
as one of the three equal branches of the
federal government 191 years ago.
A graduate of Stanford University Law
School, she worked as a state prosecutor
in Arizona before serving terms in both
houses of the state legislature.
A former majority leader of the Arizona
Senate, O'Connor served as a state trial
court judge and was later named by Gov.
Bruce Babbitt to the Arizona Court of
Nothing Reagan has done in his eight
months as president has won such broad
support and acclaim from so many sides
of the political spectrum on Capitol Hill.
In three days of testimony before the
Senate Judiciary Committee, O'Connor
said she found abortion personally offen
sive, but declined to give her constitu
tional view of whether a woman had a le
gal right to end a pregnancy.
Helms said on the day Reagan an
nounced O'Connor's nomination, he met
with the president at the White House
about how O'Connor might rule on abor
tion cases to come before the court.
Based on his half-hour talk with
Reagan, Helms said, "It is fair to assume
that Mrs.' O'Connor agrees with his

Hunt's) mentioned," Gov. Hunt's press

From Working as translator for former first
lady Pat Nixon and as a writer disc jockey for
the Voice of America, new graduate student Maria
Ivanova Sukhanova Waston, aka Masha Watson,
is returning to the world of academia.
Her background and Russian heritage make her
somewhat unique amoung her colleagues in the
UNC Russian department.
Born of Russian emigrant parents in a Russian
community in Paris, she has lived in the United
States since the age of two.
"My parents thought it was important to retain
the Russian language and that it would be useful
to us," said Watson, who speaks Russian to her ,
Her parents, former members of the Russian
"pomeshnik" or land-owning class, met in France
after fleeing the turmoil of the Russian revolution.
Her father served in the tsar's White Army.
In class, her students address her as Maria
Ivanovna, the form of first name and patronomic,
(form of the father's name) which is used in Rus
Her insistence on spoken and colloquial Rus
sian is a shift in the focus of the traditionally
literature-oriented Russian department.
Sukhanovna-Watson's translating experiences
included working in Russia in 1972 for the State
Department as translator for Mrs. Nixon, where
she found observance of protocol an important ,
but not always predictable, factor.
"It is usually official protocol for host to go
through the receiving line first," she said, "but
this time it was done in reverse with the Americans
going through first. I was at the bottom of the
totem pole so I was last. Next to me was a Dr.
County Democratic Chairman Andy
-Little said. "I think he (Gov. Hunt) has '
already made up his mind."
The North Carolina Democratic Party
in July called for resumes from anyone
interested in filling Hunt's seat in the
legislature, one day before the General
Assembly voted to create the new judge
ship. The judgeship, which gives Orange and
Chatham counties three judges, was ap
proved in early July. When a new judge
ship is created, the appointment is left to
Rep. Hackney and Little agreed Rep.
Hunt was a strong contender for the post
because she had been very supportive of
the governor in the past.
UNC Student Legal Services advisor
Dorothy Bernholz, a partner in the same
legal firm that employs Rep. Hunt, said
she believed the appointment was "all
sewn up," and said since the appointment
was Gov. Hunt's to make, it was primarily
a political decision. "She's a very influen
tial legislator, and she's a (Gov. Jim)
Hunt supporter;" Bernholz said. .-.
-Hunt.'who is not related to the goverv
nor, has been a legislator for five terms.
She was appointed to the seat after Don
Stanford, her husband, died in 1969.
After Carl Smith served a term in 1970,
Hunt was elected in 1972.
When a representative leaves the
House, the local house selection commit

which is customarily approved, Brent

Many local party goers found out how
expensive a drink could be this weekend
as Chapel Hill police issued 69 citations
for public consumption of alcohol be
tween Thursday and Saturday nights.
In addition, there were four citations
issued for possession of alcohol by a
minor and a single citation handed out
for aiding a minor in the purchase of
Police Captain Arnold Gold said the
citations were the result of a program that
began Aug. 27, designed to crack down
on violations of alcohol consumption
"We handed out 56 citations last week
end, but the first two weekends were rela
tively light," Gold said.
The number of public consumption ci
tations issued ranged from 20 to 25 per
night, each resulting in a $31 fine for the

undercover officers who walked along
Franklin Street or lingered in the vicinity
of fraternity court.
Jim Brooks, a UNC senior and member
of Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity wit
nessed a few of the incidents leading to
citations late Saturday night.
"There were two plainclothed cops on
the sidewalk, one girl and one guy, and I
saw them issue tickets to at least three dif
ferent people," Brooks said. "They were
pretty sly about it."
Brooks said the people arrested were

isparity breeds competition, arrogance
By JOHN HINTON
Special to the DTH
The disparity between the number of black
women and men enrolled at the University has
fueled competition among some women and arro
gance among some men, a UNC sociology profes
sor said recently, ;
Richard M. Cramer, an assistant professor of
sociology said the black men are freer to choose
whom they date, regardless of race black women
don't have this opportunity.
In the fall of 1980, 1,046 women enrolled at
UNC as compared to 641 black males, according
to the latest figures of the Office of Records and
Registration. Projected figures for black students
enrolled at UNC this year have yet to be reached,
an office spokesman said.
"When a black woman sees a black fellow on a
date with another woman, black or white, this
woman probably feels that there is one fewer man
for her," Cramer said. "This situation breeds
competition between the black females."
In this type of competition, the men do not have
to be sensitive to women and can get away with
being arrogant if they choose, Cramer said.
Students interviewed on campus have divided
ciaied ttie men who were attracted to them because
of this intense competition. "(The competition)
also makes the ladies talk about each other and
render false accusations about one another. This
causes the men to lose respect for some women."
Jesse Cureton, a senior from Charlotte majoring
in criminal justice, said he was sympathetic to the
women. It was unfortunate that the women had to
lower their standards because of unbalanced num
bers of men and women, he said.
"Many males don't stimulate the females soci
ally or intellectually," Cureton said.
Lauren Lewis, a senior from Montclair, N.J.,
said the ratio between the two sexes showed the
position of the black man in society. "He's not
well represented at major universities such as this
one and highly unemployed," she said.
The competition that stems from this unequal
ratio results in some women exploiting or talking
about each other. "This causes tension between all
the male-female relationships on campus," Lewis
Also because of the limited number, Lewis said,
women tended to put up with the men's arrogance
and accepted certain attitudes from them about the
Charles Williams, a biology major from Laurih-
burg, said the unequal number of black men and
feelings on the unequal number of the two sexes on women had the potential t0 very damaging to
Gena Tolbert, a junior economics and industrial
relations major from Durham, said the wide gap
between the black men and women causes compe
tition between the women because of the limited
number of men.
"It disturbs the hell out of me," Tolbert said. "I
came to this University for the academic and social
aspects. This wide gap destroys the social aspects,"
Tolbert said women who made sacrifices appre-
the females. "It could lower their self-esteem be
cause everyone wants to be cared for emotionally
and intellectually. This cannot happen because
there's not enough men for every woman," he
Williams said he thought most black men were
not arrogant because of the higher number of
women. "The women who think men are arrogant
are the ones who don't have anybody," he said.
"Maybe there is no one here who meets their
