The Chapel Hill Police Department's crackdown
on enforcement of drivmg-under-the-influence laws
continues to show an increased number of DUI ar
rests, said Master Officer Gregg E. Jarvies, who
heads the police department's DUI program.
Last November, the department received a
$77,000 Selective Traffic Enforcement Program
grant which has been used to supplement salaries of
officers who volunteer to work DUI patrols.
"When we first received the grant, we expected
about a 10 percent monthly increase in the number
of DUI arrests, but we have actually had an increase
of about 80 percent to 90 percent.
"In March alone, there were 44 DUI arrests com
pared to only 26 in March 1982, an 80 percent in
crease," Jarvies said.
The extra money enables the police department to
have four officers per shift that patrol the streets on
Thursday, Friday and Saturday between 9 p.m. and
3 a.m. These special patrols have made just over
one-fourth of the total number of DUI arrests since
the program started, Jarvies said.
"The program has really sparked an awareness
among the officers," he said. "The ones that work
on the DUI squad also work harder at looking for
DUIs when on their regular duty. The DUIs are
always out there, and if we had more officers on the
DUI squad, we'd probably arrest even more."
Jarvies said that another reason why the number
of DUI arrests has increased is because the police
officers have pinpointed the two major areas where
the most DUIs occur.
The major arrest area is a one-and-a-half mile
stretch from East Franklin Street, begiiuiingat the
public library and going to the U.S. 15-501 Bypass.
The other major area is on Airport Road, heading
north out of town toward Hillsborough.
Many of the arrests also involve people who are
traveling back to Durham, Jarvies said. In.
February, 1 1 of the 52 people arrested for DUI were
from Durham. These people are rarely college
students, he said.
The large amount of DUI arrests is not totally
because of the student population, Jarvies said. .
"Over the week that UNC had its Spring Break,
there were 1 1 DUI arrests and none of them were
students," he said. "Eleven arrests is an average
week for us even when the students are not here. An
average of 25 percent of the total arrests involve
people 21 years old and under, but usually only one
out of 10 is a UNC student."
Thursday through Saturday, police arrested eight
people on charges of driving under the influence.
But Jarvies said they were not ones who drank dur
ing the NCAA games and then drove.
"We usually have six to eight DUIs on the
weekend alone, and anything over 10 would be con
sidered heavy," he said. "If UNC had won the
NCAA regionals, the number of people drinking
and driving probably would not have increased.
Students usually walk downtown, and if they don't,
they get someone that is sober to drive them."
At a recent Zeta Beta Tau fraternity party on
Finley Golf Course Road, two officers from the
DUI squad stopped several cars, but no one was ar
rested, Jarvies said. In most cases everyone in the
car had been drinking except the driver.
"This shows that people here know how strict we
are concerning DUI," he said. "A lot of times, the
ones that get arrested are those from out of town
who don't know about our program."
He also said that the Report All Drinking Drivers
program has helped to increase the number of DUI
arrests. The police often get calls from storekeepers
who call after a person who is obviously drunk
comes into their store. Citizens can usually spot the
obvious ones, the ones who will later blow a .20 or
.25 on the Breathalyzer, he said.
The emphasis of enforcement of DUI laws locally
and statewide has resulted in fewer cases of plea
bargaining at the Orange County District Court, ac
cording to District Judge Patricia Hunt.
In July 1982, District Attorney Wade Barber told
local attorneys that plea bargaining would not be
accepted on DUI cases where the blood alcohol con
tent was .10 or more, she said.
Under the existing law, a first-time DUI offender
is charged a $100 fine, a $100 alcohol education fee
and $31 in court costs. He must also attend four
alcohol education classes, and he loses his license for
The N.C. Department of Motor Vehicles usually
" returns the license in six months if the offender does
not commit another offense.
"I think the education program and the publicity
about DUI have substantially reduced the number
of student DUIs that we're . seeing in the
courtroom," Hunt said.
Jarvies said that the stepped-up patrols should
last through November 1983, when the grant for
STEP will expire.

Hart: nuclear arms control would be priority
By CHRISTINE MANUEL
State and National Editor .
If elected president, Sen. Gary Hart, D-Colo., said he
would make nuclear arms control the highest priority of
his administration and strengthen conventional, not
Hart, speaking to an overflow crowd of 500 in Hamil
ton Hall, said, "Even before taking office I intend to
gather the best experts in this country committed to the
cause of arms control."
Hart would then challenge the leader of the Soviet
Union to begin negotiations, he said.
"We can have national security by constructing a
modern and effective conventional force and working
with broad-based arms control," Hart said.
Hart also said he would make education his No. 1 do
mestic priority and attempt to create the best educational
system in the world. .
Hart, whose main topic was hazardous waste, said he
would make safer waste disposal the Environmental Pro
tection Agency's top goal. Hart strongly criticized the
Reagan adrninistration's policies with the EPA and pro
posed eliminating entirely the use of .landfills for hazar
dous waste disposal.
In addition to cutting EPA funds, the Reagan admini
stration has cut back also on the prosecution of violators
of EPA regulations, Hart said. Top EPA officials have
spent more time pursuing the leaders of industry in the
restaurants of Washington than in the courts, he added.
"Apparently their (EPA's) motto is to drop the 'd'
from superfund," Hart said, referring to the agency's
' fund for cleaning up hazardous waste. ;
Hart said that 80 percent of the hazardous waste in the
United States is disposed on or in the soil because it is the
cheapest alternative for industry. Hart called it the "moral
equivalent of sweeping it under the rug."
Hart said specialists have told him that even the best
landfill will eventually leak.
"The United States should choose safer alternatives,"
he said. He said a future Hart administration would pur
As alternatives, Hart suggested that the country's toxic
waste be incinerated or chemically treated to make it
harmless. He would make it a national requirement to
pretreat all hazardous waste, he said, and would increase
the EPA Superfund to 10 times its current amount.
Hart said he would create the extra funds by taxing
American industries for the chemical and hazardous waste
they use. He said he hoped that it would work as a coun
terincentive for industry to stop producing pollutants and
that taxes would be more effective than additional regula
tions. Hart also said that he would propose reforms on cam
paign funding, especially concerning political action com
mittees. "I intend in those first 100 days (in office) to send new
and sweeping congressional-reform legislation to the Con-

Faculty must submit fall book orders today
By LIZ LUCAS
Assistant University Editor
With the end of the semester drawing
near, faculty members are faced with more
than just preparing final exams; they also
must fill out and submit their fall book
orders to the UNC Student Stores by to
day. Over the past two semesters the number
of book orders that have come in on time
has improved slightly, but there is still
plenty of room for improvement, said
Carol Mulholland, chairman of Student
Government's Scholarship, Aid and Stu
dent Stores committee.
Though there are some valid excuses for
professors to turn in book orders late, in
most cases orders can be in on time if the
professor desires, Mulholland said,
"Some professors wait to turn in orders,
especially if the book deals with current in
formation that is very important to his
class or in order to see n a newer edition is
coming out," Mulholland said. "But on
the whole, the problem extends , beyond
"A lot of professors are just not aware
of when the orders are due," she said.
Mulholland cited several departments
that were "notoriously late" with their
book orders, including die political science, .
speech communications and economics
departments. None of those departments
have turned in more than 25 percent of
their orders on time in recent semesters,
The chemistry, German, classics, jour
nalism, comparative literature and art
departments have been consistendy good
departments for turning book orders in on
time, Mulholland said. The larger depart-,
ments do not tend to be as punctual with
their orders as the smaller ones, probably
because they have more orders, she added.
In the past, only slightly more than one-
third of all book orders have come in on
time, she said. Thirty-five percent of the
orders for the 1982 spring semester and
about 35 percent of the book orders for
the 1982 fall semester came in on time,
Though faculty members are not
penalized for submitting late book orders
and though books ordered up to six weeks
before the semester begins are usually in
the bookstore on time, students do suffer
from late orders, said Rutledge Tufts,
assistant manager of the UNC Student
"Our goal at the Student Stores is to get.
the books we need at the lowest cost for
the students," Tufts said. "But the issue is
two-sided, involving the cost of purchasing
the books and the cost of disposing of
If book orders are in when the Student
Stores begin buying back used books from
students, then the store can offer a higher
buy-back price to students selling back
books that are scheduled to be used the
following semester, Tufts said. Otherwise,
only a minimum price can be offered, he
On the purchasing side, when book
orders are in on time, more books can be
bought at wholesale prices from whole
salers across the country rather than pur
chased new at a higher price, he said-
"Getting the orders in on time allows us
to get to the wholesale market at the peak
period the more complete the set of
orders you've got, the more books you can
get at a reduced price," Tufts said.
Tufts urged faculty members to get their
orders in on time to help the students save
money when purchasing their books.
"The faculty should realize that though
the savings may be small to any single stu
dent perhaps $5 per book for the en
tire student body the savings could be

CHICAGO A federal judge Thurs
day gave Roy L. Williams a provisional
55-year prison sentence for his part in a
conspiracy to bribe a senator and said the
Teamsters president had "sold the working
But U.S. District Judge Prentice H.
Marshall did hot strip Williams of his post,
a step prosecutors had requested, and said
the sentence will likely be "significantiy
reduced" after a medical examination.
Williams suffers from severe emphysema.
Marshall set final sentencing for June
27, after a 90-day medical assessment to
determine whether the ailing 68-year-old
chief of the nation's largest union is fit for
Marshall also ordered a $29,000 fine for
the Teamster leader's role in the con
spiracy to bribe former Sen. Howard Can
Williams announced through the union
that he is innocent and is determined to re-,
main in the $225,000-a-year job, which he
won days after his 1981 bribery-conspiracy
Williams was the third Teamsters presi
dent convicted in the last 25 years. Dave
Beck and Jimmy Hoffa were convicted on
federal corruption charges.
"Mr. Williams, you sold the working
man out," Marshall said. "You were will
ing to take the working man's pension and
use it. Yes, use it for your own aggrandize
ment." Williams and four others were found
guilty Dec. 15 of conspiring to bribe Can
non by offering him exclusive rights to buy
Teamster-owned Las Vegas land at a bar
gain price, in return for help in scuttling a
trucking deregulation bill.
The defendants were convicted of one
count of conspiracy, one count of inter
state travel to further bribery and nine
counts of wire fraud.
Three others were sentenced with
Williams. Reputed mobster Joseph Lom
bardo was given 15 years in prison and
fined $92,000, former Teamsters pension
.fund trustee Thomas O'MaHey was sen
tenced to 30 months and former pension
fund trustee Andrew Massa was sentenced
to one year and a day.
Broiled or fried?
All three also were given five years pro
bation. A fifth defendant, Teamsters associate
Allen Dorfman, a millionaire insurance
executive, was killed in January.
Williams was ordered to report by April
15 to the federal prison in Springfield,
Mo., where doctors are to prepare a medi
cal report within 90 days.
As he had in a dramatic appeal to the
judge at a pre-sentencing hearing,
Williams appeared in court with plastic
tubes in his nose, carrying oxygen from a
tank at his side. He said nothing.
Marshall said the sentence probably
would "sound horrendous" but likely
would be "significantiy reduced" after the
medical assessment. The sentence was the
maximum, as required by-law when such
medical mms are ordefedr": """"
However, the judge said it was inconsis
tent to think - as Williams' lawyers sug
gested that he was too ill to go to prison
while still having enough stamina to lead
the 1.6 million-member union.
The irony of the case, Marshall said,
was that Cannon publicly had taken a
position on trucking deregulation in op
position to what the Teamsters wanted.
The bill that was allegedly the subject of
the bribe attempt became law with Can
"There was no conceivable way he
could have done other than he ultimately
did," Marshall said of the former senator,
. who was not charged. Cannon was defeat
ed last fall in a re-election bid.
"I have no comment to make at all,"
Williams said immediately after the sen
tence was announced. In a statement
issued through union headquarters in
Washington, he declared: "As I have said
throughout this long ordeal, I am inno
cent." Williams expressed confidence the union
would continue to support him, and "in
the end, I believe that I will be totally vin
dicated of all charges." ,
Williams was elected president in June
1981 to a five-year term. .
Marshall placed much of the blame for
the conspiracy on Dorfman, the former
consultant to the union pension fund.

Anybody who bites into a Burger King
Whopper, a McDonald'-s Big Mac or a
Wendy's Single is participating in a large
scale war a "burger war."
This war between the nation's three big
fast-food chains was analyzed Wednes
day night in a speech by Burger King
Regional Account Supervisor Don Bor
reson in Howell Hall. The speech was
sponsored by the UNC Advertising Club.
"The battle of the burger campaign is
really done tongue-in-cheek. We're not
talking about nuclear disarmament
here," Borreson said to a group of about
20 people. -
Burger King, the nation's No. 2 fast
food chain, was sued by No. 1
McDonald's in September after Burger
King's "Whopper Beat the Big Mac"
commercials began airing. McDonald's
claimed that the ads were false, deceptive,
unfair and misleading. '
The publicity McDonald's gave the
commercials caused people to pay more
attention to the ads, Borreson said
i The lawsuit was settled out-of-court in
a "gentlemen's agreement", in which
Burger King said they would stop taste
comparison ads. However, Burger King
continues to advertise against
McDonald's. Borreson showed a recent
"Broiling vs. Frying" ad as an example
of this. Burger King broils hamburgers,
while McDonald's fries them.
Some of Burger King's ads have been
so blatant that they haven't even made it
.to television, he said. Borreson showed
one ad in which a van emblazoned with
the Burger King logo drives by a
McDonald's and a Wendy's announcing
that the Whopper was voted superior to
other fast-food hamburgers.
, Borreson said he was surprised by the
news media's reaction to the burger con
"People were really taking this entirely
too seriously," he said.
Stories about the controversy were seen
in major newspapers and in news maga
zines such as Newsweek. Clips from the
most controversial Burger King ads were
seen on The NBC Nightly News and
ABC's Nightline. . .
"We estimated that we got $30 million
free exposure," said Borreson.
Borreson' said that Wendy's actually
stood to gain from the battle of the
burgers. Burger King was the No. 2 fast
food chain and Wendy's was No. 3, thus
Wendy's had nothing to lose by being
compared to Burger King. Wendy's has
not been included in the most recent
Burger King ads.
