University police have obtained a
warrant for the arrest of UNC graduate
student Michael Boyd Evans, 25, on
second-degree kidnapping charges in
connection with Evans barricading
himself in a second-floor room in Ruffin
dormitory Wednesday night.
Evans, who reportedly was armed
with a .32-caliber revolver during the
incident, was also charged with having
a weapon on campus, said Ned Comar,
of the University police.
Evans entered the room of Kelly
Grady, a junior from Danville, Va.,
around 7:05 p.m. Wednesday, witnesses
said. Grady had taken out a warrant
for Evans arrest on March 13, charging
him with assault in an incident that
occurred near Ruffin.
Grady and most of the other residents
of Ruffin were evacuated by police
shortly after they arrived.
Police talked to Evans on the phone
while he remained in Grady's room.
Frederic W. Schroeder Jr., dean of
students, talked to Evans on the phone
before going to the room to talk to him
in person for an hour. Schroeder, along
with the police, brought Evans peace
fully from the dorm at about 9:20 p.m.
Schroeder also accompanied Evans to

CAMP members to hold rally in Pi
By GRANT PARSONS
The Committee Against the Meal
Plan will hold a rally to educate students
on the mandatory meal plan and to
express student dissatisfaction about
the plan at noon Tuesday in the Pit.
The rally will "let the University and
the outside community know that there
is widespread dissatisfaction with the
meal plan," said Fetzer Mills, co
founder of CAMP. It will be held two
days before a campuswide referendum
that will allow students to voice their
opinion on the mandatory meal plan.
"We plan to whip up support for the
referendum and bring the issue to the
forefront of student awareness," Mills
"I do think (the Board of Trustees'
decision to implement the meal plan)
can be can be changed there is no
doubt," Mills said. "I dont think the
Board of Trustees is unfeeling toward
students. I think they are very respon
sive to student views."
Although Student Body President
Patricia Wallace has voiced opposition
to the referendum, she said she planned
to speak at the rally. "If we want to
get rid of the meal plan, it's important
that Student Government presents a
united front," she said.
Wallace said that since she already
signed the bill calling for the referen
dum, it was important that Student
Government "rides the horse in the right
"Students have to get out and vote,
or it won't be powerful," she said.
Law student Tom Terrell, co-founder
of CAMP, said a rally was needed to
demonstrate the extent and intensity of
student opposition to the meal plan.
"It is important now that student
opposition is not just directed toward
the meal plan, but to the manner in
which it was implemented," he said,
referring to allegations in a Student
Government report he co-authored,
charging that University administrators
did not act in good faith when consid
ering the implementation of the meal
"The issue of freedom of choice goes
to the heart of the problem," he said.
"Why spend $3 for lunch, when you
can spend $1?
"It all boils down to simple issues,"
he said. "First, ARA doesn't need this

subsidy. Second, administrators have
misled the University community about
data used to justify (the meal plan)."
The meal plan also would have a
disproportionate effect on South Cam
pus, Terrell said, since residents there
could be forced to pay more than the
required $100 to keep Chase Cafeteria
viable if it does not receive adequate
income once it reopens.
Terrell also said that since students
already were required to pay for the
renovations of Chase and Lenoir halls,
as well as the mandatory meal plan, the
faculty and staff were reaping the
benefits without charge. "The faculty
and staff are being subsidized by us,"
Mark Stafford, former Residence
Hall Association president and one of
the scheduled speakers for Wednesday's
rally, said: "It is going to be an

are not educated enough on the issue

Sunday, April 14 was the only day the four bands under

to grant South Campus Jam a noise permit, said concert

Under local noise ordinances, outdoor events that are
expected to exceed a certain noise level are prohibited
within the town limits on Sundays.

"We have already concentrated on
the misleading aspects of the (imple
mentation of the) meal plan," he said.
"Now we need to find out whether or
not the meal plan is in the students' best
interests. That could best be accomp
lished through a rally."
CAMP members also have organized
a grass roots effort to publicize the rally.
"We will be banging on doors all over
campus, trying to get people out to the
rally," Mills said. "The Campus Govern

try to turn out their constituents. David

"Sibby Anderson (president of the

grass roots effort also," he said.
The rally will begin in the Pit where
student leaders and a faculty member
will speak out against the meal plan.

"We felt that not having alcohol would be a big letdown
for students," Kaminsky said. "There are lots of students
who associate concerts like this with alcohol, and we

to 6 p.m., are for a happy hour with 25-cent draft beer
from I p.m. to 3 p.m. and 50-cent draft from 3 p.m.

There will be no cover charge for the concert and
students of all ages will be admitted, although students
under 19 will be stamped so they cannot purchase beer.

The Carolina Gay and Lesbian
Association received low merit scores
from the Campus Governing Council's
Student Affairs Committee as the
second round of budget hearings drew
to a close Wednesday evening, but the
CGLA may appeal those scores.
The CGLA's eight programs received
scores ranging from a high of 20.75 for
its orientation brochure, to a low of
In the qualitative round of the budget
process, each organization's programs
are evaluated by the Student Affairs and
Rules and Judiciary committees. The
committees rate each program on a
scale of zero to 30, with 30 being the
best score. The scores from each
committee will be averaged for a total
quality score. In the final round of
hearings, the scores will help determine
which programs get budgeting priority.
Most scores in the qualitative round
have been in the low to middle 20s.
Student Affairs Committee Chair
man Todd Mason (Dist. 14) said he felt
some of the committee members were
not as objective as they should have
been when scoring the CGLA.
"I kind of felt they (CGLA) got
slighted," he said. Personal opinions
about gays entered too much into
scoring decisions, he said, and he
compared the prejudice against gays to
the prejudice against blacks in the '60s.
Mason said he felt the CGLA was
an outlet just like any other minority
organization, but some of the commit
tee members said gays were not the same
as other minority groups because they
chose to be gay.
Some committee members were also
evaluating the organization's impor
tance to the University instead of just
the organization's merit, Mason said.
"I don't want to appear as if at some
time in the future I want to be gay or
I support them (CGLA) 100 percent

organization, and you're just defeating
the purpose when you evaluate this

Anna Critz (Dist. 12), who gave the
CGLA the lowest scores for almost
every program, said there were major
differences between the CGLA and
other minority organizations. She said
the greatest difference was that other
minorities did not choose to be what

Alan Ross (Dist. 5) said he gave the
group low scores because he believed
that was what his constituents wanted.
"I feel like the people that elected me
made very clear to me that they were
against the CGLA," he said. He also
said his own feelings may have influ
enced his scoring. "Personally I feel it's
a group we should not be funding at
all," he said.
Ross said he gave programs that
affected both gays and straights scores
similar to what he would have given
any group. He gave the outreach

Pharr said answers questions from
anyone about gay issues, an 18, and he

Pharr said the CGLA believed the
budgeting process was basically good
but that there were some new CGC
members who were "narrow-minded."
"This council basically scares me," he
said. "At the same time there are some
members who are judging the CGLA
as any other organization."
Jim Duley, chairman-elect of the
CGLA, said, "(Some members of) the
CGC are violating its own by-laws and
discriminating on the basis of sexual
preference. (Anna Critz) even admitted
she was treating us different than any
other minority group." Every organ
ization receiving student funds must
state in its constitution that it does not
discriminate on the basis of, among
other things, sexual preference.
Cathy Labyris, CGLA co-chair, said
the qualitative process wasn't objective.
"It was a rating of what the people in
the (committees) felt about these
groups," she said.

The state Senate Thursday postponed
voting on a bill that would prohibit
alcohol drinking for 19- and 20-year-olds.
The action follows a preliminary vote
Wednesday to approve raising the age
from 19 to 21 in the face of a federal
push to raise the age.
Senators decided to delay final
consideration of the bill for five days,
until Tuesday, after one of its members
said he wanted to talk to more people
about the bill.
Legislators Wednesday said they had
little choice but to vote for the bill. In
an effort to cut down on drunken
drivers, Congress sent an ultimatum last
year saying states would lose millions
of dollars in highway money unless they
raise the drinking age to 21 by October
North Carolina could lose about $20
million a year in highway funds.

With the recent national crackdown
on. underage drinking and a move to
raise the age for beer and wine con
sumption to 21, students are seeing
fewer alcohol promotions on campus.
Beer promotions by breweries such
as Anheuser-Busch, Miller and others
are on the decline, not only on college
campuses, but in all advertising areas.
It's something that distributors hate to
see, but what some college administra
tors are hoping for.
"We're totally opposed to it (the
banning of advertisements)," said
Stuart McAfee, manager of Harris
Wholesale, an Anheuser-Busch distrib
utor. "Various research has shown that
advertising doesn't really increase
consumption of beer, but it does alert
consumers that there is a choice of

After the meeting, the CGLA raised
questions about whether the scores were
allowable because only four committee
members were present, one short of
quorum. Pharr said he had not decided
what the CGLA would do.
Mason said there were a number of
options but any of them were more
likely to hurt the CGLA than help it.
He said the committee could meet
again with quorum, but that could
create tension among committee
members who had already gone through
the qualitative hearing.
The CGLA could let the scores stand
or throw them out and try to argue their
case before the full CGC when it meets
to approve the budget, he said, but he
doubted the group would have much
success with that.
He said the CGLA could write to The
Daily Tar Heel but that it might spread
the tension to the whole student body
and "just promote worse relations for
them and the CGC."
Critz said she also did not understand
how a meeting could be held without
"I would be more than willing to set
up another time to discuss it if they
would raise a fuss," she said, adding
that she would not change any of her
votes but that she wanted the rest of

drinking age for beer and wine to 21.
The proposal hit a snag later that day
when Democrats argued that the
proposal does nothing to help one of
its intended purposes: decrease drunk
driving. But the bill was scheduled for
a final Senate vote today.
The bill includes a provision to return
the drinking age to 19 if the courts rule
the federal action unconstitutional, or
if Congress repeals its mandate. It also
makes violation of the law by 19- and
20-year olds an infraction, rather than
a more serious misdemeanor offense.
