Stallings Oil Co. of Rocky Mount recently purchased the pro
perty at 1501 E. Franklin St. from Ron Ragan and Silas, Talbert,
co-owners of the Exxon station.
Ragan, who now operates East Franklin Car Care near
Eastgate shopping center, said Wednesday that Stallings Oil Co.
had purchased the property for about $240,000.
He had been operating his gas station at the new location
since June. .
Talbert also operates two other convenience stores that sell
gasoline in Chapel Hill one across from Glen Lennox shop

the A&P grocery store.

The Upper Deck will carefully check
identification to verify legal drinking ages
before serving anyone alcohol, Huff said.
"We're going to try to do everything to
stay within the boundaries of the law." ,
Carl Cullen, executive vice-president of Stallings Oil Co., said
the $400,000-plus new business, called Chapel Hill Swift Service,
will feature modern self-service facilities.
"We plan to have 16 electronic gasoline dispensers under a
50-feet-by-150 feet canopy in addition to regular convenience
store food items."
Cullens said the volume of gasoline that the business planned
to sell would allow prices to be below average.
"Although I can't give a specific price, I can promise that no
one in town will underprice us," he said.
Cullens said he did not feel that the excessive number of
gasoline stations already in the area would affect the success of
the new store.
I do not feel that we will be competing with the existing full
service stations," he said. "We feel that there are disparingly
few innovative self-service facilities in the Chapel Hill area."
Although he could not give a definite date for
opening, Cullens said Chapel Hill Swift Service should open

Veterans Day ceremony speech Thursday
on the UNC campus.
Christian, a leading veteran's advocate,

That's the kind of scenario civil defense
coordinators wish they could give, but at
a Wednesday night presentation, area civil
defense personnel said their provisions
for such a war were inadequate. "The
bottom line is: Few people would
survive," said Marilyn Braun, an emer
gency management coordinator for Guil
Braun and Joseph E. Deaton, also a
Guilford County coordinator, told an au
dience of about 40 people that Greens
boro and Guilford County would be un
protected in a nuclear war.
Braun, noting that the Defense Depart
ment had declared Greensboro a nuclear
"risk area," said the city's 1975 war plan
did not tell the truth. "It's 20 years of
deception that's provided people with a
false sense of confidence," she said.

Christian called the Vietnam War a
mistake from which Washington has
learned little. "Yes, Vietnam was a mis
take. There's nothing wrong with mis
takes if you learn, but the people in
Washington refuse to believe they can
make mistakes. People are so likely to
start another war. You can hear the war
drums beating all over the world."
He worked on veteran's issues in the
Labor Department under President Jimmy
Carter, but was fired. "I was too visible
and was fired for making people uncom
fortable," he said.
"Eighty percent (of today's veterans)'
enlisted to go to Vietnam," Christian
said. "The problem is that these people
regret not being used but being misused
Christian blamed the government both
for the defeat in Vietnam and for the neg
lect of veterans.
"Don't blame the military," he said.

"The politicians put us in a war and
told us to play steady defense. They lost
the war, and they're ashamed of it, and
they ought to be ashamed of it," he said,

in civil defense was high as well.
Architects were sent out and identified
143 fallout "spaces" in the city. Some
food, medicine and other supplies were
distributed to these shelters and the rest
was put into storage.
Deaton,. referring to the "spaces,"
said, "I'd rather stay outside and crawl
around with the dying people than get in
one of those coffins."
Braun and Deaton also said they were
concerned because the Department of
Defense's plan to evacuate Greensboro
and Guilford County into ten neighbor
ing counties was based on three to ten
days of warning. ' ' - -
"When we asked what the warning
would be," Braun said, "we were told it
would be marked by an increase in ten

"We worry because we don't have any
shelters or supplies, and we worry be
cause the surrounding counties don't
have any either," she said.
