Research of hemophilia shows
exercise helpful, not dangerous
By MARY McKEEL
People suffering from hemophilia, a
hereditary blood disease, can control the
effects of the disease with 15 minutes of
exercise a day, according to a study recent
ly released by a University professor.
Hemophilia is a genetic deficiency of the
hormone which allows blood to clot. It
often is associated with arthritis and pain
ful bleeding in the major joints.
"It's possible for patients who are so
called free bleeders to strengthen their
muscles at home without special equip
ment," said Dr. Walter B. Greene, a pro
fessor of surgery at the UNC School of
Medicine. "At the knee, which gives them
the most problem, muscles can absorb
Daniel Willis, a UNC student with,
hemophilia, , said the research is valuable
because it lets hemophiliacs know they can
exercise, when they might have been afraid
to before. "A lot of hemophiliacs do exer
cise then think 'I'm going to bleed a lot,' "
Willis said. "I hope they do the exercise.
The exercises are designed for
hemophiliacs and arthritics as well."
Greene said the design of the exercises
was simple,, so that it would not discourage
patients from exercising. There is no
special equipment. Swimming is best for
exercising all the muscles and cutting stress
on the joints, he said. "We encourage
them to be active, though not in confron
Bob Pace, executive director of the
North Carolina Chapter of the National
Hemophilia Foundation, said the research
was "encouraging to hemophiliacs and
their families." Pace said most patients
will exercise after consultation with their

prehensive ' Hemophilia Diagnostic and
Treatment Center in Chapel Hill, one of
two such centers in the state and one of 22
in the country. With 1,000 known
hemophiliacs, North Carolina has one of
the highest hemophiliac populations.
The center, which has someone on call

Delores Pickard gets up every Thurs
day morning to start making the bread
she will sell on Saturday.
She begins with the starter a friend
gave her several years ago a mixture of
potatoes, water, sugar and flour which
makes live yeast. She adds to it twice a
week to keep the starter active.
She and her husband, C.S. Pickard,
are one of about 20 small local farmer
families who grow their -own jproduce,
bake goods or raise flowers to seTQTat area
farmers' markets on Thursdays and
The Pickards also sell eggs, '"taters,"

and tarts. "We're selling now what we us

The Pickards live in Chatham County,
near Chicken Bridge. The area received
its name after the old wooden bridge col
lapsed when a truck carrying chickens to
market drove over it. "That's been about
20 years ago," Delores Pickard said.
Their friends, the Chandlers, are selling
vegetables beside them from the back of
an ancient, well-polished black Ford. The
Chandlers are also retired; H.M.

"We like to stay active," she said.
"With taxes and everything now, you've
got to do something."
They sell seven varieties of eggplant -from
fat, dark purple-skinned eggplants
to long, thin ones, and small round white
eggplants that 4sok like eggs with stems
on them. "You have to save the seeds to
grow those," Magdalene Chandler said.
The Chandlers have been coming to the
market since it opened four years ago.
This is the best one," Chandler said. It's
a way to supplement their income, and
it's also a social activity. The same group
of farmers sells at the market each week,
and has made long-time friends of other
farmers and customers.
A Carrboro ordinance states that
farmers have to live within 50 miles of the
market, and they have to grow their own
produce. The customers are crazy about
it because there's no middle man, Pickard

on boards stretched across overturned
metal garbage cans.
And the customers come in and out,
chatting about holler peas and snap beans
and sour dough bread, looking over the
produce that was picked the day before.
There are butternut squash and little
pumpkins and big jars of dark rich
honey, baked goods covered with cello
phane wrappers, bushel baskets filled to
the top with beans and tomatoes and dus

rows , in the backs of old trucks, and
tables bursting with green indoor plants,
colorful flowers and delicate herbs.
Farming is a hobby for J.C. Forehand.
He is retired after a 41-year career at
Southern Railway. 'I still advertise," he
said with a chuckle, touching the brim of
his green and gold Southern Railway cap.,
With daughfer Carol Johnson and
grandson Danny Lee helping out on the
farm near Raleigh-Durham Airport, it is
a three-generation operation.
Johnson works on the farm after she
comes home from the office. "I'm a
secretary from nine to five, and a farmer
after five," she said. "There's very, very
much work involved. We work all day,
the day before, to harvest. And we woke
up at five today to get over here."
"It's tiring. It's hard labor. But it's
also good for you."
Gray-bearded Jack Hanton is one of
the farmers who depends on what he sells
at the two markets for his living. He came
to Chapel Hill to get his master's in bio
chemistry, but after a few years of post
graduate lab work he decided that he
wanted to be his own boss.
Now he works in the sun and in his
greenhouse near Hillsborough, raising
bedding plants, herbs and lettuce. He
does a lively business at the market, sell
ing plants .and offering advice.
"It takes an odd sort of person to do
this," he said. "It takes a whole day to
prepare for market, especially with vege
tables. And just about a whole day to be
here. That's four days a week ... leaving,
one or two days to produce."
When winter comes, he will grow let
tuce in the greenhouse and sell it to area
restaurants. "I have a regular clientele,"
Edgar Bouldin has not missed a week
since the market opened in 1978. He sells
eggs and vegetables, and his wife, Jewel,
haTalable full of baked goods and can
ned goods. He has been elected manager
of the market for the last three years.
He brings to market the fresh produce
he grows on the Chatham County farm

"I've been doing that kind of work
long back as far as I can remember," he
said with a toothless smile. Work on the
farm has always agreed with him.
' The handful of farmers that depend 'on
the farmers' market for their living enjoy
their lives on the farm, even though it is
labor intensive. But there are risks involv
ed. "Your time is flexible," said Jack Han
ton, raising an eyebrow, "but if you
don't get it done, the whole thing may
fail. It's very demanding, but it's satisfying."
UNC men help Zeta raise funds
Weekend Men calendar elicits controversy

The calendar is a project sponsored by the Zeta Tau
Alpha sorority to raise money for Special Olympics
and the Crown Development Trust Fund of the sorority-
"The calendar is the opposite of the Dream Girl
Calendar that the PiKAs (Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity) " '
do,"said Arlain Rockey, publicity and distribution i:
chairman for the Zeta sorority.
"There are several other Zeta chapters that do the
calendar," Rockey said. "We decided to do it before
anyone else did."
The men pictured in the calendar were askpd by a
Zeta or applied to appear in the calendar. Applications
included the man's name, address, interests and a
photograph. All applicants had to know their name
"We only had 30 guys apply. A committee of nine
girls drew names from the applications out of a hat,"
"The decision wasn't based completely on looks.
We wanted to include all types of guys representing
campus. We went for a few big names to get it off,"

"It is something that can be used but is also nice to
look at especially during September," she said.
Junior Mary Angel Blount said, "It's tacky enough
for guys to buy pictures of girls to look at and worse
for girls to buy them of guys."
Jeff McFJhaney, a senior pictured in a coat and tie

dar would just feature men involved in different cam

'weekend men' or have the connotations it has," he
Falls Harris, a junior featured on the January page,
said he liked the calendar.
"I think it is fine. The money is going to charity and
their house," Harris said. "I don't think there is any
exploitation. I am not personally benefitting either."
Karen Humphries, assistant coordinator of the

have a calendar of gorgeous hunks, then people say
you're exploiting. I didn't want that."
She added, "The way we did it some people think
one guy is good looking and some think another one
is. There's something for each of us."
Orange County unaffected by housing slump
By J. BONASIA
Although a reversal of July's home
building surge has raised doubts about
prospects for a national housing recovery,
the effects on building in Chapel Hill will
probably be minimal, town officials said
In a housing report issued Sept. 17, the
U.S. Commerce Department said that
slightly more than 1 million home con
struction projects began in August,
representing a 16.2 percent drop from the
John Davis, director of inspection for
the Chapel Hill Planning Department, said
that 70 to 100 new homes were built in
Chapel Hill each year, regardless of fluc
tuating interest rates. Seventy-five new
houses were built in Chapel Hill in 1981,
"This is a transitory town," Davis said.
"We always have a rather steady flow of

who are looking for homes."
Such is not the case in the rest of Orange
County or across the state. Orange County
Tax Supervisor Kermit Lloyd said interest
rates had a direct effect on building in
most towns except Chapel Hill.
"If interest rates do hold at around 14
percent, we should see a sharp increase in
building and buying in this county in the
near future. If the rates increase, it will be
a different story," Lloyd said.
Interest rates have only recently reached
the "housing triggering point," Lloyd
said. This point represents interest rates
low enough to lure a backlog of hesitant
people into building or buying new homes.
"The only way to get a recovery in
home building is with lower interest
rates," said Dr. Ralph W.; Pfouts, UNC
professor of economics.
; The Federal Reserve Board has just
reported its' seventh consecutive weekly in
crease in the nation's money supply.
Pfouts said that in anticipation of greater
inflation, the Federal Reserve might check
the growth of the money supply. This
could in turn drive interest rates higher
than the current 14 percent to 16 percent
range, he said.
The North Carolina Department of
Labor-does not yet know how interest
rates affected building across the state in
Jury and August. Figures have shown that
building in North Carolina was down by
22 percent in the first half of 1982 as com
pared to the same period in 1981.
However, the month of June only
showed a 10.8 percent decrease in
building, a less severe decline than in
"All we know how," said Ginny Lawler
of the N.C. Department of Labor, "is that
predictions of a housing recovery were
