CGC rejects campus party due to alcohol issue

The Summer Campus Govern
ing Council effectively killed
plans for a campus party when
it did not reconsider a bill that
Student Body President Paul
Parker said he would not sign.
Last week the Summer CGC
passed a bill authorizing the
purchase of beer for a party that
was planned for Friday. The bill
required the signature of the
student body president within ten
Parker would not sign the bill
because of the liability involved
with serving beer at the party and
the possibility it could jeopardize
the University's proposed alcohol
policy, he said.
Donald Boulton, vice chancel
lor and dean of student affairs,
said in an interview after the
meeting Monday that lawyers
had said the University should
not accept the liability of such a
Under the University's pro
posed alcohol policy the party
would be permitted but until the
policy is approved the party
would not be allowed, he said.
Parker said, Chancellor Chris
topher C. Fordham III said he
did not want to have to make the
decision about the party.
Under the Safe Roads Act
which took effect last October,
the University could be liable for
accidents occuring as a result of
the party and it would not be fair
to ask the University to accept
that liabililty, Parker said.

Speaker Wyatt Closs, member
Dawn Peters and Parker wanted
to reconsider the bill and remove
the authorization to purchase
alcohol. The three wanted to
consider hiring bands for a party
to which students could bring
their own alcohol.
Summer Finance Chairman
Rebel Cole said he was against
hiring bands because he thought
few students would attend and
because the original party was
planned as a protest against the
federal law requiring states to
raise the drinking age to 21.
It may be more important to
make a statement by not recon
sidering the bill than to give in
to the administration and have
some other social event, Cole
Council member Max Lloyd
said the purpose of the party was
to show that 19 and 20-year-olds
can drink responsibly. If every
reasonable safeguard is taken
then there will not be much risk
that could lead to liability and
students can show that they are
responsible, he said.
There could be a three-beer
limit or drinkers could be
required to sign an affadavit that
they would not drive for four or
five hours, he said.
Boulton said that a written
alcohol policy would reduce the
University's liability. "We can
show that we have given it good
thought and thereby minimize
our liability," he said.
Susan H. Ehrinhaus, the Uni
versity's attorney, said in a phone
interview Monday night that,
because the University's alcohol
policy is still in draft form and

of the history department.

sible for the review and admin
istration of the University's

BOG raises out-of-state tuition

The UNC Board of Governors Friday increased
student fees and raised non-resident tuition an
average of 9 percent at the 16 campuses in the UNC
The Board also elected new officers, with the
chairmanship being contested for the first time in
the Board's history, and appointed Jane Elizabeth
Milley chancellor of the North Carolina School of
Milley is the first woman to be named a chancellor
in the UNC system.
Tuition for most non-residents at the Chapel Hill
campus will increase from $2,842 to $3,100 for
students in the academic affairs division.
The increases for health affairs out-of-state
students will range from $258 for undergraduate
students to $3 1 8 for graduate students.
The tuition increase follows a 26 percent increase
last year. Both raises were needed to keep UNC
non-resident tuition on par with non-resident tuition
at other public universities, a requirement imposed
by the N.C. General Assembly last year.
Tuition will not increase for in-state students.
Fees that will increase for Chapel Hill students
are the health fee, the student activities fee and
special student fees for MBA students and dentistry
The Student Activities Fee increase of $1.75 a
semester is to help support Student Television and

summer session fees would be spent.
"I have a responsibility to all
the students to make sure their
money is going where it should,"
"If it ( the fees) is not being
spent the way student govern
ment wants to (as agreed to in
1973) then well go back to where
we were," he said. Before 1973
summer fees were spent by a

The STV fee of 50 cents was requested in a
referendum by students and will be collected for
the coming school year only.
The intramurals fee, which is set by the admin
istration and has not increased since 1975, will
increase $1.25 a semester, said Donald Boulton, vice
chancellor and dean of student affairs.
Both of these fees are considered Student
Activities Fees by the BOG but they are not allocated
by the Campus Governing Council.
Philip G. Carson, an Asheville attorney, was
elected chairman of the BOG by a vote of 16-15
over Winston-Salem Mayor Wayne A. Corpening.
Carson's candidacy was seen by some as a move
by younger members of the BOG to give more of
the everyday policy-making power to the BOG at
the expense of UNC President William Friday.
However, after his election Carson said, "If
anybody in this state thinks this election is in any
way any kind of referendum on Bill Friday or the
(UNC) adminstration ... or the Board of Governors,
then they don't know me and they don't know the
person that they were voting for."
Jacob H. Froelich Jr. of High Point was elected
vice chairman. .

most significant actions ever taken by the UNC

chancellor, and I am proud of that appointment,
