The number of events at which alcohol
iserved varies among individual fraterai

for example, reported 20-25 events per
semester, while Lambda Chi Alpha
fraternity reported only five.
Most sororities, according to chapter
rales, are not allowed to serve alcohol in
ieir houses unless they secure a special
permit from their national chanter. As a
result, they host few parties in their

week at which either beer or alcohol was
always served. Costs are usually split be

custom in most houses.

The drinking situation among black
Greeks is different, said Adrian
Douglass, president of Kappa Alpha Psi.
Treasury money is not spent on alcohol;
if fraternity brothers want to drink they
use their own money, he said. Alcohol is
served when the fraternity mixes ex
clusively with its sister sorority, which ocr
curs at a private residence off campus.
But it is not served at the six to eight

fraternity sponsors in Great Hall and
Compared to white fraternities' par

Douglass said. "People don't come up
here to drink. They come to dance. That

"We're such a small group that when
black Greeks have a party, everyone
wants to go just to get together," she
said. And since the sorority is non-profit,
there are no funds for alcohol, she said.

consumption, Minuto said. "The typical
situation is the floor keg party," she said.

David Diduch, Scott College Gover
nor, said that while dorm mixers in the
past have centered around alcohol,
policies have changed. "In my area, it's
not like that anymore," he said. "Now,
we get around that by having a theme
party or having people do something. We
had a party this semester for 800 people
and we had two kegs. You can't say the
party centered around the beer."
The change in policies was due, in part,
to a ruling from the Alcohol Beverage
Control board which made all purchases
of alcohol with student activity fees
against ABC regulations, said Donald
Boulton, vice chancellor for student af
fairs. The regulation states that no
alcoholic beverages can be sold on state
property. Students have tried to get
around the law by incorporating beer into
a more general "refreshments" category.

DTH' ordered to comply with treasury laws
By ALAN MARKS
Happy Hour, all-campus party, 2-for-l special, keg party,
free beer these are terms familiar to everyone, drinker and'
non-drinker ajike. Walk past any bulletin board, glance through
the newspaper or visit any bar you're sure to see one of these
slogans. And they're guaranteed to draw a crowd.
Chapel Hill has been dubbed the "beer-drinking capital" of
the world and has resolved to live up to the title. A visitor to
Chapel Hill will never have any trouble finding a beer.
But someone forgot to ask Chapel Hill if it wanted to be the
beer-drinking capital of the world, or if .it wanted the crowds,
and the town has decided it's not too crazy with the idea. So,
begirining in the summer of 1981; the town decidedto do some
thing about it.
A crackdown was started on -public consumption of alcohol.
Strolling down Franklin Street, sipping a beer, became a thing
of the past. Letters went out to bar owners and the crackdown
began on under-age drinking in restaurants and bars. Season
football ticket-holders received letters before the start of the
1982 season stating that the town would be enforcing public
consumption ordinances. An alcohol task force was created to
study alcohol-related problems in the community and offer
solutions to the town council. And the Chapel Hill Police De
partment began a driving-under-the-influence enforcement pro
gram, in hopes of increasing DUI arrests by 10 percent during
the next year.
But while the town is making a sincere effort to reduce
alcoholrrelated problems in the community, it cannot stand
alone in tackling the problem. The problem is not one that
belongs solely to the town of Chapel Hill. The problem also
belongs to UNC, as well as the people that comprise the Uni
versity and Chapel Hill community.
The alcohol task force created by the Town Council is the
first effort by the council to involve members from all aspects of
the community in an attempt to find solutions for alcohol
"It (alcohol) is a community problem," council member
Marilyn Boulton said recently. "A couple of us on the council
felt it was about time we extended this into the community."
Boulton said that in creating the task force, the council in
cluded everyone that came in contact with alcohol and its related
problems, from students to a judge. The task force is comprised
of CHPD Police Chief Herman Stone, two UNC students, a
junior high school student and a high school student, a bar
owner, a convenience store owner, a district attorney and several
others who come in contact with the problem. (
At its first meeting several weeks ago, the task force identified
a wide range of problems to study, including public consump
tion, under-age drinking, ID falsification, alcohol education
programs and the effects of advertising. Several task force
members discussed the need for good, strong alcohol education
programs in the community.
But one major problem still facing the town and the Uni
versity is inconsistency in alcohol enforcement policies.
Chapel Hill has strict ordinances prohibiting the public con
sumption of alcohol anywhere on town property. But, as
Donald Boulton, vice chancellor for student affairs, pointed out
at the task force meeting, UNC has "no policy" concerning
public consumption of alcohol.
The University's alcohol policies adhere to state law that
allows public consumption of beer and unfortified wine
anywhere on state property.
This type of policy can cause problems at a place where the
boundaries of the University and town are not well-defined. A
person can sit by Silent Sam in the upper quad of campus and
publicly consume beer. But if he steps onto the sidewalk by
Franklin Street and drinks a beer, he can be arrested.
One also has to wonderlf there really is an alcohol consump
tion policy during a football weekend when 50,000 fans con
verge on Chapel Hill. It is not unfamiliar to see a group of fans
holding mixed drinks or beers while a policeman stands
watching only a few feet away.

ting it's adherence to the Treasury Laws."
The Finance Committee ruled Wednesday that the
DTH would have to return its funds to SAFO, but
would follow a separate set of Treasury Laws, loosely
based on the Carolina Union's Treasury Laws. Under
this system, The DTH could operate efficiently and
still be held accountable to the students, they said.
DTH Editor John Drescher said Thursday that he
was disappointed with the Finance Committee's deci
sion, but would abide by it.
"From a business standpoint, I'm disappointed
with the decision because the business runs much bet
ter with a separate checking account outside of
SAFO," he said.
Yount told the committee that the present Treasury
Laws were not advantageous to the smooth business
operation of an organization the size of the DTH.
"The Daily Tar Heel is an unusual organization in
the amount of money it handles, the amount of
business it does, the number of people who work for
it, and the amount of time those people spend at the
DTH office every day," he said.
"They are ultimately responsible to the student
body, and if they're responsible to Student Govern
ment as a trustee of the students, so be it," he said.
But Yount stressed that the rules which the DTH
would follow would have to be both clear and flexible.
Finance Committee member W.M. "Doc" Droze
(District 22) said the committee understood the finan
cial problems the DTH had with following the
"There's got to be a separation between those who
write the checks and those who record them," Droze"1
said. "But they also need some flexibility."
The committee agreed that it would be unproduc
tive to "riddle the Treasury Laws with exception" for
the DTH, and decided that a new set of laws governing
the paper would have to be drawn up.
Under the new requisitioning process, the DTH ,
would be able to make expenditures at any time, as
long as" the checks were signed by both the DTH
business officials and SAFO, Madison said.
"This way late requisitions would be impossible,
just like for the Union," Madison said.
Bryson said the DTH requisitioning process would

should have an assistant who would act in this capaci

the DTH and SAFO."

Town Council member Winston Broadfoot has said he felt
the University's lack of enforcement resulted in unequal treat
ment. "They are not doing anything and I think it stinks," he
said. "The only option they've recognized so far is to ignore it."
If the University does not want to formulate an enforcement .
policy, the town should enforce the laws on campus, Broadfoot
said. Although the University is within town limits, Chapel Hill
has traditionally allowed it to police its own grounds.
Town Mayor Joe Nassif said the town was applying its
policies as "fairly and equitably as possible. Obviously, I am
strongly biased toward our policy, but that doesn't mean the
University has to do it our way," he said.
Solutions to the alcohol problem also boil down to the at
titudes of bar owners serving alcohol, advertisers promoting the
consumption of alcohol, and, most of all, the person who drinks
Beer advertisers prey on college students in the belief that the
company will have a loyal drinker for the next 25 to 30 years if a
student can be "hooked" on a certain brand of beer now. Bar
owners have to make a living, and free beer and weekly specials
are a good way to draw crowds. Who could blame a person
for falling victim to these temptations?
Much of the answer lies in responsible attitudes on everyone's
part. If responsible drinking and responsible attitudes toward
drinking were the rules instead of the exception, Chapel Hill
would not have an alcohol problem.
The town has a legitimate interest in wanting to make Chapel
Hill a clean and pleasant place to live. The University, and the

Andropov practical tough,
UNC professors explain
By CHRISTINE MANUEL
' Yuri V. Andropov, who recently suc
ceeded the late Leonid Brezhnev as general
secretary of the Soviet Communist Party,
will be a practical, tough leader and will be
more knowledgeable but more dangerous
than his predecessor, according to Dr.
Robert Rupen of the UNC political science
Rupen said Andropov's experience as
leader of the KGB, the Soviet Union's
secret police, has given him a unique
background of knowledge. Andropov
knows the underlying situation in the
Soviet Union, Rupen said.
Andropov's 15-year leadership in the
KGB was marked by the systematic repres
sion of Soviet dissidents, Rupen said. An
dropov squelched the dissident movement
without using overt violence. "It was im
moral but well-done," Rupen added.
Dr. Joel Schwartz, Bowman Gray pro
fessor in the political science department,
added that as head of the KGB, Andropov
was tough and has proven that he is willing
to use repressive measures if they are need-
The KGB is one facet of the Soviet
system where leaders cannot hide
themselves from reality, Schwartz said.
"Andropov has been put in the position
where he knows how serious the problems,
especially domestic problems, in the Soviet
Union are," he added. .
"It is a gross oversimplification to label
Andropov as either a moderate or a
hardliner," said Warren Webb, a graduate
student in poUtical science and teacher's
assistant. Andropov was known as an ef
fective administrator, Webb added.
The recent succession of Andropov to
power also set a precedent for the Soviet
U The power struggle occurred before the
death of Brezhnev, said Schwartz. "There
was no uncertainty that there would have
to be succession," he said, due to
Brezhnev's failing health.
Schwartz said he expected Andropov to
face what he labeled the Soviet "policy
