The Chapel Hill Historic District
Commission in a meeting'Thursday,
July 11, discussed plans for setting
up a subcommittee to inspect the
conditions of Greek houses in the
Commission Chairman Arthur
Marks said he would get a subcom
mittee of two or three Commission
members "to walk around town" and
look at the appearance of the houses.
Marks said he received the idea for
the subcommittee last week from
Donald Boulton, vice-chancellor and
dean of Student Affairs at the
University. . s
"It turns out there was a special
committee of board of trustees that
was going to have a meeting in
August to address the question of j
getting all the houses up to snuff,"
"Boulton felt that it would be
appropriate to look at all of the
houses," Marks said.
Marks said the Commission was
going to write a letter to the com
mittee "applauding the efforts of the

board of trustees."
Marks had already compiled a list
of all the sorority and fraternity
houses in the District, and that night
he and the Commission members
studied a map to find out exactly
where each house was located.
"My sense is that the sororities are
in reasonable shape," Marks said, but
he expressed doubts about the
Several of the other items on the
agenda were concerned with the
approval of modifications for Greek
houses in the Historic District.

The Commission also voted to

A II A merica loves ice cream
Fortunately for America, ice
cream, every bit as traditional as
Coca-Cola, is not in the hands of a
single corporation. If it were, ice
cream lovers (roughly 100 percent of
the population in most regions)
would exist at the whim of a few
yuppie fast-buck artists, who think
nothing of tampering with an Amer
ican institution, or even doing away
with it, when that nebulous oracle
they worship, "market research,"
indicates such a move might turn a
No, the formula for ice cream isn't
secret. Ice cream can be bought in
more places than a fast food ham
burger, and can even be made at
home by anyone strong enough to
turn the crank.
Within walking distance of the
University campus, no less than four
bastions of American comfort and
stability stand to dispense civiliza
tion's coldest pleasure, ice cream.

a market, they're not happy about
spending the money T" but at Haagen

them, she said. -
Donna considers Haagen Dazs ice
cream the best, because it "doesn't
have a lot of yucky stuff." Her

Gelato d'Oro (which means
"golden ice cream" if you say it in
Sicily), on Franklin-Street opposite
the University campus, is Chapel
Hill's only source of Italian ice cream.
Alicia Burchfield manages the store
this summer, and will be a junior
communications major at UNC
Chapel Hill in the fall. To sell ice
cream, she says, you have to be
"friendly and open."
Ice cream is America's most pop
ular dessert, Alicia says, describing
it as "a universal food."
The ice cream at Gelato d'Oro is
made on the store premises, and is
frozen at 40 degree below zero for
24 hours before it can be sold.
Eddie Masters makes the Histinr-
tive cone, called a pizelle, at Gelato

he adds cryptically.
