Street scene ad attempts to portray hometown image
By DEAN LOWMAN
DTH Staff Writer , .
A full-page advertisement by North Carolina Na
tional Bank featuring a Chapel Hill street scene has prcn.
voked both interest and questions from loc&Uesidents. -
The ad, which has appeared in several major news
papers across North Carolina, features a picture of
several businesses located on the south side of the 100
block of East Franklin Street. The picture was taken in
1979 by Steve Murray Photography of Raleigh from a
spot near the Franklin Street pedestrian crosswalk.
Prominently shown are Varley's Men's Shop, Julian's
College Shop and the Little Shop, a women's clothing
store. However, in the photo, the name of the Little
Shop has been removed from the awning in front of the
store and the NCNB logo has been placed on the store's .
right front window.
"The ad was designed to depict the typical hometown
mainstreet," said Jim Walters, branch administrator
for NCNB. "As you know, this is part of a statewide
. effort to portray NCNB as the hometown bank." '
Bob Varley, who owns Varley's Men's Shop, said he
had heard a lot of comments from townspeople about
the ad, but that he had no complaints.
"Why should I complain?" asked Varley. "After all,
' the ad got Varley's a tot more-attention than we would
ever had gotten if we had taken out our own ad."
Jean Stancell, owner of the Little Shop, said " People
who went to school here surely recognized it (the
altered photo) because it's on Franklin Street."
Another area merchant, who asked not to be iden
tified, said he thought the ad was a good joke.
"We thought only the Chapel Hill people would
notice (the discrepancy), and that people in the rest of
the state would say 4Wow, that's a nice hometown
street,' " Walters said. . . '
NCNB could have faced some legal problems if it
had failed to get permission from the owners of the
businesses pictured, before altering the photo, said Bill
Chamberlin, media law professor in the UNC School of
"If they've gotten permission, then it's probably all
right," Chamberlin said. "But, if not ... then the big
gest legal concern is in the area of appropriation that
is, using someone else's name or likeness for commercial
gain." , ....
Walters - said the photographer - had gained the
necessary permission when he took the photo two years
ago. This allowed the photographer to make any altera
tions or changes to the photo that were needed to sell it
commercially, he said.
However, when asked whether NCNB had gained
permission from the Little Shop, Stancell refused com
ment except to say, "There are some technicalities
we're trying to work out." "
Joseph Bowling, of the Better Business Bureau in the
Research Triangle Park, said failure to get permission
would be "a case of deceptive practice" on the part of
ncnb.. . . " '
The bank is located in the NCNB Plaza, a multi
story building located almost directly across the street
from the businesses pictured in the ad.
Alcohol FiimoFs ..diuuriii

Interfraternity Council President Jim
Maynard said he planned to send a letter
this week to a University administrator or
Zeta Psi alumnae criticizing the Zeta Psi
fraternity for its behavior during formal
Maynard 's criticism is based on rumors
that the Zetes had alcohol present during
the times of formal rush, which could
have been an infraction of IFC formal
Maynard said no formal investigation
was being conducted because the Zetes
were not recognized by the University of
the IFC. The chapter's ties to the Univer
sity were severed in February 1980 al- .
though it continues to function as an off
Maynard sad the IFC position would
not have a direct effect on the fraternity,
but it could be used during any. reconsi
deration for colonizing a new chapter at .
the University after a period of three
Although the Zetes are not subject to
IFC rules, President Walton Joyner said
the group followed IFC rules of formal
rush. , .
Maynard and Assistant Dean of Stu
dent Life Steve Hutson, an advisor to fra
ternities, both said they had received
complaints from fraternity officers and
one faculty advisor who said he felt the
Zetes were taking advantage of the IFC
But one student who rushed at three
houses Zeta Psi, Delta Kappa Epsilon
and Phi Delta Theta said he had seen
at least one brother drinking beer at each
of the three fraternities. '
The student, who wished to remain
anonymous, said he had seen a few Zeta.
Psi fraternity members drinking beer
around 9:45 p.m. Monday with someone
who had pledged the fraternity that night.
Formal rush ran from 7-10 p.m. Monday.-
At the Delta Kappa Epsilon house, the
student said he had seen one person with
a beer around 9 Wednesday night. For
mal rush ended at 9 p.m. on Wednesday.
A few men also were drinking beer at the
Phi Delta Theta house Monday night, he
said. . ' ," .' '..
"They weren't drinking to get a
pledge," the student said. "There was
nobody drunk; it wasn't like they had a
keg. I didn't think it was that big of a
deal. I was surprised to hear someone
complained about it."- ;
Delta Kappa Epsilon President Clay
Bordley said there was no alcohol at that
house the first two nights of formal rush
although there may have been individuals
drinking in the fraternity on the third
night. No rushees were served, Bordley
said. v :. :
Rush Chairman for the Phi Delta
Theta fraternity, Bailey Patrick, said he
clid not feel that drinking by a few mem
bers was a violation of formal rush rules.
The point of having the no alcohol rule
is to keep a rushee from being forced into
a decision or from being impressed by a
fraternity because they drink,- Patrick
said. Patrick said he did not think the
outcome of rush was affected by the
drinking that went on.
Joyner said the Zetes did not give any
beer to rushees, adding that there was no
beer at. all on Sunday, the first night of
formal rush. Joyner said there was beer
present only after all the bids had been
given out for each night.
"I don't think we did anything
wrong," Joyner said. "All our bids had
been given out. As far as we were con
cerned formal rush was over."
Joyner said it would have only been a
formality to wait the last 30 minutes and
added he did not think any beer was
brought out until after, all the other
rushees had left and only pledges and
brothers were present."
Hutson i lid. no official investigation
could be ir-gated because the fraternity
was not under University jurisdiction. If
the national fraternity of Zeta Psi at
tempts to establish a new chapter after its
three-year suspension, the incident would
be taken into consideration, Hutson said.
Hutson said he thought the situations
described would have been borderline
cases if there was a formal investigation.
He also said if one or two individuals had
alcohol and did not offer it to any
rushees, it would probably not be a pro
blem.; " An investigation would consider
whether alcohol was served, encouraged
as part of the house activities, and made
available to guests, Hutson said. -

WASHINGTON President Ronald
Reagan said Thursday the United States
would not permit Saudi Arabia to fall vic
tim to revolutionary takeover, and in-.
directly, but unmistakeably rebuked Israel
for lobbying against the proposed sale of
AWACS radar planes to the Saudis.
The president defended his plan to sell
planes, missiles and other equipment
worth $8.5 billion to the Mideast country
as vital to protecting the vast Saudi oil
fields that play a major role in fueling the
economics of the Western world.
v Without mentioning Israel by name,
Reagan said: "American security interests
must remain our internal responsibility. It
is not the business of other nations to
make American foreign policy."
Reagan's remarks were at a nationally
broadcast news conference, his first for-.
mal meeting with reporters in more than
three months. "Welcome to my first an
nual news conference," he said.
' The president also:
Vowed to use his veto against spend
ing bills that would "bust the budget and
violate our commitment to hold down
federal spending." .
Defended his campaign to slash,
spending for social programs and said the
"safety net" to protect the poor was still
in place. Later, he said everyone totally
dependent on the government was "our
obligation and nothing is going to happen
Noted that Thursday was the start of
the government's bookkeeping year when
most of his budget and tax cuts officially
took effect. "Our programs won't be in
stantaneous," he said. "The mistakes of
four decades can't be turned around in
Said he supported, in principle, ex
tension of the landmark Voting Rights
Act. He declined to say in what form.
Reagan defended the AWACS sale as
Secretary of State Alexander Haig tes
tified on Capitol Hill in an effort to save
the package, which Senate Republican
Leader Howard Baker said this week
lacked enough votes to pass Congress.
"I have proposed this sale because it
significantly enhances our own vital na
tional; security interests in the Middle
East," Reagan said. "The sale will great
ly improve the chances of our working
constructively with. Saudi Arabia and
other states of the Middle East toward
our common goal: a just and lasting
Replying to concerns of Israel and its
congressional allies, the president said the
package "poses no threat to Israel now or
in the future. Indeed, by contributing to
the security and stability of a region, it
serves Israel's long-range interests."
He said chances for Senate approval of
the sale were good as a result of nego
tiated arrangements with the Saudis
about joint U.S.-Saudi manning of the
aircraft. But he did not go into detail and
there was disagreement in Congress over
whether those arrangements, outlined by
Haig, represented anything new.
Asked -if he could assure that the
AWACS would not be taken over by an
enemy if the Saudi government fell in a
revolution similar to the upheaval that
deposed the late shah of in Iran, Reagan
said: "I can make that guarantee that it
will not compromise our security .... I
have to say that Saudi Arabia, we will not
permit to be an Iran."
Although he refused to spell out what
the United States would do, Reagan said
there was no way the United States would
stand by and see Saudi Arabia taken over
by anyone who would shut off its oil ex
ports. The president, who has proposed a $2
billion cut in the spending increase pro
posed for the Pentagon, did not rule out
that he would accept a larger reduction if
Congress insists. "I would hesitate to say
that I would or that they should do this,"
Reagan said, adding that an arms buildup
is essential to national security.
Reagan also said 'it's difficult "for" me
to imagine there is a winnable nuclear
war" but that Kremlin leaders believed it
was possible and that was why he would
pursue varms reduction talks" instead of
"arms limitation talks."

From staff reports
Because deep ruts and hidden holes
have made the Parcourse at the old
Chapel Hill Country Club dangerous,;
Director of Intramural Sports Ed Shields '
said Thursday he planned to put up a sign
warning that the course was" not safe.
Although the course was purchased by
Student Government 2 years ago, Cam
pus Governing Council member Nan
Blackerby said it was unclear who was
responsible for the course.' She said she
agreed that the course was unsafe and
needed to be closed for repairs.
During a tour of the two-mile course
Thursday, Blackerby, Shields and Asso
ciate Director of Intramural Sports Marty
Pomerantz found holes of several feet in
diameter and up to two feet deep on the
jogging path of the Parcourse.
Shields said the course, made up of 18
stations designed to give a participant a
complete workout, was poorly planned
for erosion and maintenance.
Although the course was bought for
$6,600 with money allocated by the CGC
under the administration of Student Body
President J.B. Kelly, no money was al
located for maintenance.
! - J '
ill' ' . - '
"Lack of j initiation of a maintenance
program from the very first is the reason
that the course is deteriorating," Shields
'Blackerby and Shields proposed
moving some of the stations that were
poorly located, but the immediate con
cern would be to find funding to repair
Shields said it would be up to Physical
Education Department Chairman John
Billings to petition the Physical Plant to
work on the course.
Shields said once the course was re
paired to the point that it could be main
tained, the physical . education depart
ment might be able to take over mainte
nance. Billings said the department probably
would not do anything about the course
until spring except get an estimate from
the Physical Plant of how much would be
involved in bringing the course up to
Pomerantz said the number one thing
going for the Parcourse was that it could
be used for instruction.
"It'd be a shame to let it sit there and
rot. We need to do something to get the
course operational," Shields said.
UN pm mud differs
By JONATHAN TALCOTT
DTH Staff Writer
UNC's course-dropping policy is typical of large
state universities but differs drastically from
several privately-funded universites according to a
recent Daily Tar Hee! survey.
The faculties of the universitys of Michigan, Il
linois, Virginia and California all favor shorter
drop periods, whereas Princeton, Yale, and Stan
ford all have drop periods that extend almost to
the end of the term.
At Stanford University, a student can drop any
course up until. 48 hours before the final exam
UNC's drop period, which is six weeks long,
ends today. The add period extends one week into
a semester. This policy was adopted in 1978 after a
long student effort to have the drop period
lengthened from four weeks. Eventually, the mat
ter was settled on mostly educational and political
Former Student Body President J.B. Kelly, who
led the student side of the fight, said, "We pushed
for the present six-week policy because we thought
it would be politically reasonable and educational
"With the four-week policy that then existed,
students did not have time to determine how heavy
the course load would be because they did not have
a test early enough in most courses," said Kelly.
"We probably would have "wanted the period ex
- tended longer than six weeks but we did not think
the faculty would agree to such a drastic change."
- Student-faculty conflict seems to be a central
issue in all of the drop period discussions that the
, DTH looked into. "Generally students were in
favor ol longer urop penocb.
But, for educational and financial reasons the'
state universities limit their drop periods usually
from three to nine weeks. , .-
Dean William Feder at the University of Califor
nia at Berkley, whjch has a five-week drop period,
said, "We limit the time because we want to get the
courses settled in, and because we are held to a
stricter budget than a privately-funded university.
"We cannot afford to have a salaried teacher
cater to four hundred students and have one hun
dred of them drop out by end of the semester."
Feder said. .
"The private universities can afford to allow
their students more latitude because the private
universities are wealthier and thus have larger
"Besides, when you are paying $10,000 per year
you think twice before you drop too many
courses," Feder said.
Dean Eugene Nissen of the University of
Michigan at Ann Arbor said, "We believe that the
faculty has the right to know who is serious about
the courses as soon as possible in the semester."
The Michigan College of Letters, Sciences and the
Arts of which Nissen is the dean has a drop period
of three weeks.
Dean Martin Griffin of Yale University said,
"We allow students to drop a course up until the
last day of the course. We believe the student can
best determine what is best for them."
Dean Peter Hood of the University of Illinois
said, "The issue comes up every few years but the
faculty generally stands firm with the present
policy of eight weeks."
Stanford University, which has a drop period of
up until 48 hours before the final exam, reviewed
the question during the last academic year and
found, not unexpectedly, very little student-faculty
Mary Sunseri, a Stanford faculty member and
the chairperson of the committee that reviewed the
issue said, "We have been generally pleased with
our drop period."
Dean Palo Cucchi of Princeton said, "A student
may drop or add any course without penalty
within the first two weeks. After the first two
weeks, a student may still drop courses without
penalty but he must carry at least four courses
through to the end of the term."
Dr. Mark Appclbaum here at UNC, who head
ed the Educational Policy Committee which
reviewed UNC's drop period policy two years ago,
s&id, "Most schools probably make their decision
based on their educational policies just like we
