By MIKE ALLEN
The big day came suddenly and
dragged on slowly as 6,000 some-odd
freshmen, junior transfers and graduate
students converged on Chapel Hill
Sunday in the annual organized mad
ness known as "Moving In."
From hundreds of cities and towns
around the world, students came by
droves to begin a new experience at
Carolina. The onslaught of wood
paneled station wagons, pickup trucks
and family cars came packed full o.f hot
pots, stereos, teddy bears things
necessary for survival in the strange new
world of college.
As the occupants emerged from their
cars, looks of bewilderment and familiar
sounds were seen and heard. "Where
are the washers and dryers?" Red-faced
moms and dads began the long journey
up and down stairs in a ceaseless effort
to comfortably settle their college
Cars were parked on sidewalks
everywhere on campus. Traffic moved
slowly but there were no serious
problems or accidents. One traffic
officer remarked, "All I have to do is
point and the cars generally follow my
directions pretty well."
There were a couple of minor han
gups on Stadium Drive due to the one
Several parents unloading cars at
Granville Towers .said their trip into
Chapel Hill was much easier than they
expected. A father from Greensboro
commented,"! heard it was a nightmare
fighting the traffic up here, but the
police have done a very good job of
controlling the situation."
New students and parents worked
hand in hand with the orientation
counselors. In South Campus residence
halls the biggest complaint was the long
waif for elevators, which could be as
much as a half-hour. : , :
"ThiV is crazy. These elevators are
operating in slow motion," said one
mother in the lobby of Hinton James.
A student in Morrison moved into one
room and was then informed he had
been transferred to another room higher
in the dormitory.
Charlie Furr, a freshman from
Charlotte who lives in Ehringhaus, was
pleased with his fifth floor room.
"Everything's gone good so far. The
room isn't all that big but I have a great
view of the baseball field," Furr said.
He added, "I haven't walked all over
campus yet but I think I'm gonna like
On North Campus things were
running smoothly too. Kevin Yoo, an
Atlanta freshman, said he had an easy
move into his Lewis room, but was
displeased with the room itself. "I dont
like my room. There is plaster coming
off the walls and I'm going to have to
' repaint the whole thing," Yoo said.
"Besides the room, everything else is
great," he added.
Amy Meadows, a freshman from
Winston-Salem, was very pleased with
her room in Cobb. The move in was
"crazy," Meadows said, "but the OCs
were very helpful."
While Meadows and her mother were
putting the finishing touches on the
room and trying to resolve the problem
of dividing closet space between four
roommates, she said she was -ready to
; get out and go uptown. When asked
what she had planned for Sunday
evening, she excitedly replied, "I heard
there's a Deke party tonight!"
Sophomore OC Ginny Wilson took
a minute to catch her breath and
comment on the day's work. "I think
everyone lives on fourth floor," she said.
With the sounds of hammering and
sawing echoing through the trees of
North Campus and Domino's Pizza
deliverymen bringing food to the
hungry students in their new surround
ings, this 1 86th freshman class began .
their four-year stay at Carolina.
At the end of the day, students were
relaxing on benches and walls outside
residence halls seemingly without a
worry in the world.
Just wait. .

Beginning this fall, UNC's Student
Health Service will operate on an
appointment basis, said Dr. Judith
Cowan, SHS director.
Cowan said SHS is making several
changes to improve the health care the
service provides, but the most important
to students would be the new system
whereby a student should call ahead and
schedule a definite visit for that day or
a later time.
Also SHS will now ask students to
select one physician to follow their
medical care throughout their time at

Students asked to call ahead for appointments

According to Cowan, five new phone
lines were installed to accommodate the
increased number of calls for appoint
ments. Students who come in without
appointments will be given an appoint

she said. She added that, as always,
emergencies would be handled
Cowan said a new service SHS would
provide this fall would be the cold care
center. At the center a student, with the
help of a nurse, can assess the approp

further examination is necessary, an

SHS Dr. Bruce Vukoson said the

Chapel Hill police arrested 16 people
on alcohol-related charges in the
vicinity of Cameron Avenue and South
Columbia Street Tuesday night.
Two were arrested for underage
possession of alcohol, 14 for public
.consumption, and one, a student, for
littering when he was observed tossing
a beer can in the street.
According to Chapel Hill law, liquor
and malt beverages may not be con
sumed on public premises such as
streets, sidewalks, town-owned build
ings and municipal parks.
Of the 14 arrests for public consump
tion of alcohol, 1 1 arrests involved UNC
students, two arrests involved N. C.
State and Meredith students, and one
arrest involved a local radio station
Master officer Gregg Jarvies of the
Chapel Hill Police Department said he
thought this was an alarming number
of arrests. "School's not even in session
and upperclassmen are not even sup
posed to be back," he said.
Jarvies said orientation week and
weekends are traditionally the busiest
times for alcohol enforcement.
Although no Chapel Hill police officers
are specifically assigned full-time to
alcohol enforcement, four off-duty
officers have been employed on the
weekends to handle DWI offenses in
Chapel Hill for the past two years.
"Our enforcement of alcohol laws will
be consistent throughout the year,"
Jarvies said. "I would hope with the
number of arrests made last night that
word will continue to spread among the
According to Jarvies, the Chapel Hill
Police Department is trying to educate
the 3,000 incoming freshmen on Chapel
Hill alcohol law. As a part of this effort,
Jarvies said he had appeared at many
freshman orientation events with a
presentation on alcohol.
He said the most Chapel Hill arrests
for public consumption occur near
Although no arrests were made
.Sunday night at the all-campus party
given at the Delta Kappa Epsilon house
on Columbia Street, Jarvies said that
the party, which was attended by many
underage freshmen, did not go unno
ticed by the police.
"We made no arrests, but we are
aware of what went on and will take
measures to stop it," he said.
Although representatives of Student
Legal Services are not permitted to go
to court in criminal cases, many student
alcohol cases are handled through a
care at the same time. This new system
should even out those peaks and valleys
and allow the doctor to spend more time
with each patient and thus provide
better care," he said.
Vukoson added that the new practice
of having students see the same phy
sicians throughout their careers at UNC
would allow the physician and the
student to become better acquainted

ces Restitution Program, said Legal
Services. Director Dorothy Bernholz,

Although most Chapel Hill alcohol
convictions involve payment of a small
fine and court costs of $35, the option
of community service is available at the
discretion of the judge.
Recently, Bernholz said, the district
attorney's office has adopted a new
policy of no longer allowing automatic
deferred prosecution in cases of under
age consumption of alcohol.
"There isn't as much leeway," Bern
holz said. "I suspect youH see alcohol
prosecution get tougher and tougher."
In the past, under deferred prosecu
tion, cases against students who did
community service work in lieu of
paying fines for underage possesion of
alcohol were often dismissed so that the
students would not have criminnal
Now, according to Bernholz, students
must befound not guilty in order to
escape having a criminal record.
"I don't think any student in Chapel
Hill will actually go to jail on alcohol
possesion charges," Bernholz said, "but
the financial and social aspects are
Under Chapel Hill law, underage
possession of alcohol through the use
of a false ID can result in a loss of
driver's license for one year. Aiding and ,
abetting the underage purchase of j.
alcohol (loaning an ID), carries the ?
According to Bernholz, the Chapel
Hill police frequently stake out the ABC
store at Eastgate Shopping Center to
prevent the illegal purchase of liquor
by older students for their younger
During the month of July, the
Community Services Restitution Pro
gram handled four cases in which
community service was required of
students convicted on alcohol charges.
The average work sentence was fifteen
hours of service.
Several freshmen interviewed on their
way to placement tests Tuesday morn
ing said they have noticed the campaign
to prevent underage possession of
alcohol but do not think it will change
their drinking habits.
Freshman Darrin Poole, a mathem
atical sciences major from Robbins,
expressed a common freshman senti
ment. "I think if people are going to
drink they're going to drink no matter
what age they are, but they may be more
careful about drinking in public."

a greater ability to assess the student's
"It will be sort of like a family
physician for the student, which I think
will be advantageous for both the
student and the doctor," he said.
- Cowan said SHS handled an average
of 300 people a day in its four service
sections. These sections include Clinical
Medicine, which handles most health
care needs; Sports Medicine, where
treatment and rehabilitation for most
injuries are provided; Mental Health,
which provides confidential counseling
on a variety of personal problems; and
Women's Health, staffed by a gynecol
ogist and two family nurse practitioners.
SHS currently has 15 physicians and
five nurses, Cowan said.
