' A bill allocating funds to keep North Carolina's 85 Employ
ment Security Commission offices open is expected to win con
gressional approval easily, according to House Appropriations
Subcommittee Chairman Rep. William Natcher, D-Ky.
North Carolina Gov. Jim Hunt strongly has urged passage of
the bill in a letter delivered Tuesday to Natcher, citing the
necessity of ESC services during a period of rising unemploy
ment. Natcher, whose subcommittee will submit the bill to the full
Appropriations Committee today, said, "I expect this bill to be
approved by the full committee, passed by the House and
Senate and signed by the president." -v.
The Reagan administration submitted a $2.3 billion spending
package to Congress on Monday designed to deal with the na
tion's growing unemployment rate. Included in the package was
$210 million for jobs se: vices offices around the country, such
as the ESC.
The ESC's duties include administering unemployment in
surance and matching prospective employers with unemployed
job seekers. The commission's funds, cut 17 percent last sum
mer, were reduced an additional 12 percent under a continuing
resolution that expires March 31. The present bill will restore
funds cut under the continuing resolution.
Hunt's press aide Brent Hackney said Wednesday the bill was
necessary in order for state offices to maintain their present
levels of service. "We weren't pleased with the 17 percent cut,
but we absorbed it. What we can't stand is another cut on top of
that," he said.
The Hunt administration had implemented an emergency
funding measure to keep the offices open until March 31. Hunt
said if Congress did not restore funds lost under the continuing
resolution, more than half the offices would have to close.
Local action came from North Carolina's Rep. Bill Hefner,
D-8th, who has sponsored similar legislation. Press secretary
Jim Lewis said Hefner was pleased with progress on the bill.
"The administration is responding to a groundswell of in
dignation over all this. The House leadership was quite concern
ed about the closings."
Rhett Chamberlain, manager of the Durham ESC office
overseeing services for Orange, Durham and Person counties,
said local offices already had experienced the budget squeeze.
He reported that the Carrboro ESC office was closed June 30
due to summer budget cuts and that remaining ESC services of
fered through the Department of Social Services in Carrboro
were ended Monday.
Chamberlain said the Durham ESC had laid of f six employees
effective Feb. 1 in addition to others lost due to earlier budget
reductions. "We've lost additional people through attrition as
well as through layoff," he said. "People are not being replac
ed when they retire or quit. We had about 60 people working for
us, and we've lost 25 in toto since last August."
Chamberlain said budget problems had plagued ESC for
some time. "We can't reduce our workload when our staff is
reduced," he said. "By law, we have to serve everyone who
presents himself, and the agency has not grown with the popula
tion since 1967. We have been disturbed for years that we aren't
points but four tournovers, felt a little dif
ferently. "I think we're in good shape," he said. "It
would be nice if we could win the regular
season, but I guess our goal now is the ACC
tournament and the NCAAs."
But he felt Virginia definitely won this
round. "They played real hard in the first half
and maybe we didn't," he said. "In the se
cond half we did, but we made turnovers."
The Tar Heels finished with 15 turnovers and
the Cavaliers had 10 steals.
With the Cavaliers up 16-13 with 12: 18 to go
in the half, they reeled off nine unanswered
points in two minutes to take a, commanding
Sampson scored 30 points and pulled in 19
rebounds in the first meeting between the two
teams a 65-60 Tar Heel win in Chapel Hill.
But this time the scoring was a little more
even and the Tar Heels had to worry about all
the Cavaliers. Othell Wilson had 10 first half
points as did Sampson. Wilson finished with
20 points, while Sampson had 18.
Mike Jordan, who led the UNC scoring
with 17 points, kept the Tar Heels in the game
with nine points, most from outside, but he
had three of UNC's nine turnovers in the first '
half. Virginia had four.
The Tar Heels fell behind even more in the
second half as the Cavaliers jumped to a
17-point lead at 49-32 on two outside jumpers
by freshman Tim Mullen.
But Sam Perkins, who played the whole 40
minutes and ended with 16 points, led a come
back as the Tar Heels scored eight straight
points to pull within nine at 49-40.
Then Sampson went to work, banging
home two dunks to help up the score to 57-42.
The Tar Heels came right back with the only
real excitement of the game. A couple of steals
set up baskets by James Worthy, who had
only ten points.
UNC had a chance to cut the lead to five
after a turnaround by Worthy made the score
57-50. But another turnaround jumper fell
short and Wilson, the sparkplug all night, and
Craig Robinson got inside to send the lead
back to 11.
It never got closer than nine points again.
"We seem to get stuck down by nine,"
Doherty said. "The turnovers really hurts us.
When you come from behind, you have to .
limit the turnovers,"
Smith said he thought a lot of the turnovers
"We have to take care of the ball, but I
thought we did take care of it and it was strip
ped," he said still fuming about the officials.
"We have to continue to improve and get
ready for aggressive play if the refs are going
to let the game go you've got to be ready for
that in the NCAA tournament."
Virginia outshot the Tar Heels 63.3 percent
to 49.1 percent for the game.
"I thought we played a good 40 minutes of
basketball , tonight," Cavalier coach Terry
Holland said. "We let down in one stretch in
the second half when Carolina really attacked

Grill, on Vest Franklin Street, closed last Wednesday

Carolina -Grill .
Local family' owned restaurant closes indefinitely
By GREG BATTEN
DTH Staff Writer
The Carolina Grill, a culinary tradition for
many UNC students, closed last Wednesday for an
indefinite period after the death of owner Paul
The Grill, located on West Franklin Street
across from McDonald's., was known for quick
service, reasonable prices and southern-style cook
ing. . . -
Although the Boyles family will maintain legal
rights to the business, former assistant manager
Polly Burgess expressed uncertainty about the
''The family of the manager has offered me the
business to operate," Burgess said Tuesday. "But
it's a decision that I'm not sure that I'm ready to
Burgess said she felt the Boyles family "didn't
want to have anything to do with the business."
She said many people, especially students, had
expressed concern over the Grill's sudden closing.
"We cater to an awful lot of students. They were a
big part of our business."
Stelios Skleris, an old friend of Boyles, said the
Grill was a tradition that he hated to see end.
Co-owners Bill Allen and Boyles opened the
business in the mid-60s, according to Skleris. "Bill
and Paul really changed the place around," he
said. "Both were real hard workers and excellent
Allen sold his share of the Grill about seven or
eight years ago, after which Boyles managed as
sole owner, Skleris said.
Burgess agreed with Skleris about wanting to see
the tradition continue.
"I would really like to see the Grill stay open. I
guess I have some control over the situation, but
it's really a 'tough decision to make," she said.
"There's a lot 01 pressure, aiong with many little
things, involved with owning your own business."

It is an everyday occurrence when
Washington, D.C. officials meet to dis
cuss political issues. But once a year, the
same congressmen, ambassadors, digni
taries and even the president join to dis
cuss a less-common subject: faith in the
Lord and how it influences events in our
This year, four UNC students are
among 65 students invited nation-wide to
participate in the National Prayer Break
fast to be held this morning.
Mark Byrd, Richard Rhodes, Lilly
Sensing and Martha Vetter all left for
Washington Wednesday morning and will
Vetter, a senior, described the Prayer
Breakfast as an aftempt "to deepen the
awareness of national events and hope
fully integrate this awareness with the
teachings of Jesus Christ." .
It is interesting and important, Vetter
said, for Washington officials to discern
between their faith and work.
Holly Palmer, a senior, attended the
breakfast last year and said, "It was help
ful to see that there are men and women
in government that are Godly people and
committed to the truth of Christ."
Another student, Will Rhodes, who
went last year, stressed the value of such a
diverse group's coming together as one.
He referred to the breakfast as an "ecu
menical type thing with all God's people
stepping beyond denominational bounda
ries to share and look to God with hope
and trust." For. example, Rhodes said,.
New York City Major Ed Koch, who is
"I learned a lot," Rhodes said. "Two
members of the German Parliament were
there these are two who feud in politics
yet become friends when it comes to
faith." - '
Vetter said the history of the breakfast
dated back to the Eisenhower administra
tion. It began "30 years ago," she' said.
"Senators were meeting weekly for prayer
and support. One week they invited the
newly-inaugurated President Eisenhower
to meet with them. He liked it so much he
proposed that all of Congress should get
And so it has continued and grown.
The official sponsor of the breakfast is
the Congress, but instrumental to the suc
cess of each' year's gathering is the Wash
ington Fellowship Foundation, a
layman's group comprised of . non
denominational Christians. This group
once consisted solely of Washington offi
cials. It has since expanded and includes
members from all over the country.
It is customary for the President to
speak at the breakfast, and this year is ex
pected to be no different.
Last year, Palmer said, President
Reagan told the parable of an experience
walking down the beach. According to
the story, a man walked down the beach
and looked behind to see his footsteps ac
companied by another set. But at times
the second set disappeared and there was
only one. The man asked the Lord to ex
plain this phenomenon and He replied
that He always walked with the man, but
the times when there was only one set of
footsteps were the times when the Lord
carried the man.

Is there , really a Carrboro Housing
Carrboro officials are unsure of the
status of the agency, which has not met
since 1972. Former authority members
voiced complaints at a public hearing last
"What we might have is a housing au
thority that exists without any member
ships," Alderman Jim White said Tues
day. "All the terms of the old board
members have expired, and the board (of
Alderman) has not appointed any now
The question of the housing authority's
- existence arose during a public hearing
last week concerning a proposal to build
30 low-income public housing units in
Carrboro, with help from the Chapel Hill
Ben Grantham, former chairman of
the Carrboro authority, said the agency
had been legally formed, but had never
been officially dissolved. The aldermen
should have worked through the Carr
boro board rather than turning to Chapel
Hill for assistance, he said.
"As I understand it," Mayor Bob
Drakeford said, "the old housing autho
rity had a contract with Orange County
while Orange County contracted with the
Chapel Hill Housing Authority.
"When you get one body that is semi
defunct contracting with another semi
defunct body and then contracting with
an active body (the Chapel Hill authority),
the active one is going to do the work
anyway," Drakeford said. "So I don't
think it's a big issue."
The Carrboro authority was formed in
late 1969, and was pfficially registered
with the state June 12, 1970.
After unsuccessfully trying to secure
funds from Housing and Urban Develop
ment for a 300-unit housing project for
elderly Carrboro residents, the group de
cided to stop meeting on a regular basis
until funds for the project became avail
able. "We left word with the aldermen that
if funds became available, then HUD
would notify the board and they, in turn,
would notify us," Grantham said.
Grantham said the authority members
had heard nothing about money for local
housing projects becoming available until
they read in the newspaper that Carrboro
was considering the joint effort with the
Chapel Hill Authority.
"The (authority) members resented the
board (of Aldermen) not recognizing us
as a legal body," Grantham said. "We
feel they should be working through the
Carrboro board rather than turning to
Chapel Hill for help."
Crbbrri'lown' Manager Richard
Hunter said the town "had been virtually
told by HUD that it would not support
two housing authorities this close
Alvin Stevenson, executive director of
the Chapel Hill Housing Authority, said
the status of the Carrboro board should
not affect the agreement between Carr
boro and the Chapel Hill agency.
"Legally, the (Chapel Hill) housing
authority has been allocated 30 units, so I
don't think it would really make any dif
ference." If the Carrboro Housing Authority is
revived, it would primarily serve an ad
visory function and remain a citizen's
board with very little power, Hunter said.
"We're in the process of negotiating
with Chapel Hill for representation on
their board," alderman Jim White said.
"I see no problem in getting a member
from Carrboro, who would be.appointed
by the aldermen, on the board."
Alderman Ernie Patterson said re
establishing the agency would not be an
effective way of handling the problem.
"Until a viable project becomes avail
able, I don't see much chance of reviving
the authority," Patterson said. "And I
don't see a viable project coming along in
the near future."
two four-year terms
By KEN SIMAN
DTH Staff Writer
Debate has been spurred across the
state by a proposed amendment to the
North Carolina constitution which would
extend the terms of state legislators from
two years to four years.
If it is approved by voters in the state's
May 8 primary, legislators would be
elected in different years than the Gover
nor' and Council of State in addition to
having their terms extended. The amend
ment was okayed last year by the General
Assembly to be put before the state's
Sen. Henson Barnes, D-Wayne, a prin
cipal sponsor of the amendment, said
Tuesday its passage was essential if the
General Assembly was to maintain its
status as a citizen legislature.
"The majority of occupations can't be
represented in the general legislature,"
Barnes said. As legislative sessions in
crease in length, few people can afford to
take the necessary time off work to be a
legislator, he said. Barnes said by increas
ing the terms to four years, potential
legislators would have to spend less time
campaigning, thereby making a legislative
race more appealing to those who could
not afford to run in the present two-year
format. In addition, Barnes said the in
fluence of special interest groups in the
state legislature would be reduced if the
amendment were approved, since cam
paigning would be limited to once every
"One of the purposes (of the amend
ment) is to keep- independent the
character of the legislature so it will not
be dependent on special interest groups
for campaign funds," he said.
But opponents of the amendment say
passage will reduce a legislator's accoun
tability to voters. If approved, the
amendment will "cement in place the
power structure . in the legislature...
(legislators will become) heavy-handed
without standing before the voters as
often," said former Gov. Bob Scott.
(Scott and former Govs. Terry Sanford
and James Holshouser are honorary tri
chairmen of the Keep the Two-Year Term
Committee, Raleigh-based organization
opposed to the amendment. Gov. Jim
Hunt remains publicly neutral on the pro
posed amendment, said Hunt press aide
Holshouser said Wednesday that while
he was "sympathetic with the fact we
need changes made to protect the concept
of the citizen legislaure," the proposed
amendment was not the way to go about
it. "What's needed is to reduce the size of
legislative districts... and some kind of
time limit on the length of the legislative
sessions," he said.
Tom Gilmore, chairman of the Keep
the Two-Year Term Committee said the
organization planned to implement a
media campaign in opposition to the pro
