School of Public Health has plans stopped by N.C. By JOEL BROADWAY Tar Heel News Editor - The fate of a UNC curriculum is hanging in the balance as leg islators, administrators and students, square off over the UNC School of Public Health's role in higher education. ; As a provision of the 1983-85 budget, the N.C. General Assembly approved last month a two-year delay on the School of Public Health's plan to phase out its department of public health nursing. This marked the first time the legislature had instructed a university in an internal department matter. " Earlier this year, the dean of the UNC School of Public Health, Michel Ibrahim, recommended to an outside advisory committee that the departmental status of the program be dropped because of the school's limited finances and resources. Combining the resources of the nursing program with other programs in the School of Public Health would increase research funds, he said. On Jan. 10, the approximately 50 students of the program were informed by a three-page memo that their department would be phased out by June 1984. This news surprised not only those students but some legisla tors as well. Rep. Jeanne T. Fenner, D-Wilson, who co-sponsored the legis lative delay along with Sen. Wilma C. Woodward, D-Wake, said she was surprised that a program specifically geared toward the public would be discontinued. "Because this program provides services to a good 20 percent of the people in North Carolina, I was concerned that this pro gram would be lost,'- Feener said. "I'm certainly in no position to tell them how to run the pro gram," she said. "Dr. William C. Friday (UNC system president) came over in June and told me that they were going back to start all over (with the publich health nursing program)." Fenner said that the mandated delay time of the legislation was See NURSING on page 6 an w n (I no ss n Pla ying for the homeless By JOEL KATZENSTEIN 7 Arts & Features Editor , , Sometimes he sits down at a bench and just starts playing, or he'll stand swaying back and forth to the music flowing from his horn. He wears a pit helmet (to shield himself from the often re lentlessly glaring heat), Bermuda shorts and a loose-fitting short sleeve pullover shirt. His cheeks swells as he soulfully plays each note of "Swing Low Sweet Chariot."' During breaks he thanks the music lovers who nod smiles of encouragement and the many who stop to drop their change in the can at his feet. It is not uncommon to see people performing on the sidewalks in Chapel Hill. In fact, street performers have been an important part of Chapel Hill's cultural offerings for many years. Many actually play for their supper, but every once in awhile, a truly extraordinary individual comes along with something other than survival in mind. Playing his heart out with sounds that could just as easily be heard in a recital hall, the Rev. Flonzo Camack is one such person who can currently be found on the sidewalks parallel to Franklin Street. Camack is different because he plays his saxaphone in an ef fort to draw attention to a cause to which he has dedicated his L L I life. Camack explains it best: "I'm here to familiarize people with my music First and then I hope to introduce them to a pro gram that I am raising money for." Camack ,is performing in an . V in Greensboro and designed to rehabilitate alcoholics, derelicts and drug addicts. "Our main goal is to provide counseling, clothing and housing for the people who don't have any other place to go," Camack said. Camack's work has brought him recognition both for the not able quality of his music and for the money that he raises daily tor the homeless. The Highway Ministries met with some dif- I Acuities, took 2Vi years to establish, but now it works alongside other civic groups such as the Salvation Army. Camack predicts t : - i . n r 1 .
