Rosemary Square was the main topic
of disagreement among candidates for
mayor and town council at a candidates'
forum Wednesday night at Phillips
Junior High School.
Mayoral candidates Beverly Kawalec
and David Nash supported the project,
a $20 million restaurant, retail and
parking development for East Rosem
ary Street recently given final approval
by the town council.
Kawalec, a council member and
mayor pro-tem, said Rosemary Square
would act as a catalyst for downtown
revitalization. Nash, a local business
man, said the benefits of the project
outweighed its liabilities.
Opposing Rosemary Square were
mayoral candidates Jim Wallace, a
former mayor and councilman, and
Wes Hare, an activist and president of
Twin Streams Educational Center.
Wallace said Rosemary Square was
a project that got out of hand. The city
started out building a horse, he said,
and "ended up with a camel, or worse,
a woolly mammoth."
People did not have an effective
opportunity to comment on all the
information about the project, Hare
Benjamin Saxon, the fifth candidate
for mayor, was attending a family
funeral out of town and could not
attend the forum.
A sixth candidate, A. L. "Junior"
Ferrell, will appear on the ballot Nov.
5, but he has officially withdrawn from
the race. Ferrell, a retiree, used to
operate a store in Chapel Hill.
Wallace said the 1981 zoning ordi
nance had led to too much growth in
Chapel . Hill in the last four years. He

Recent development resulted from a
good economy and low interest rates,
and not from the ordinance, Kawalec
said. "It's an excellent ordinance."
A lot of time is wasted in town
government, Wallace said, and he
would work for extra efficiency at town
Hare said divestment in South Africa
to protest apartheid would be an
important priority for him as mayor.
The ten candidates vying for four
town council seats include two incum
bents, David A. Pasquini and David
Candidates Julie Andresen, Joseph
Herzenberg, Tom McCurdy, and
Arthur Werner said they were against
Rosemary Square as proposed.
McCurdy, a planning board member,
said the project would bring excessive
traffic downtown and have a negative
effect on downtown merchants.
"It's too late," said Herzenberg, an
activist and former councilman. He
opposed the project from the beginning
as being of excessive scale, he said, but
the project is now a "fait accompli."
Candidate Milton Julian, owner of
Milton's Clothing Cupboard, said
Rosemary Square would keep Franklin
Street from becoming a commercial
strip like Hillsborough Street in
John L. Morgan Jr., a retired textiles
executive, said he followed the project
through 33 meetings and "now all of
a sudden, all the bleeding hearts come
out of the woodwork."
Candidates also advocated overhaul
ing the town zoning ordinance. "The
zoning ordinance does not protect the
character of the town," said Andresen,
a community activist.
The density standards have made
development too crowded, Godschalk
said, but the town needed to maintain
some high density areas to allow for
more low cost housing.
Roosevelt Wilkerson Jr., a minister,
said the lack of low cost housing in

Will that Homecoming be a celebra

college football, the Tar Heels have
never scored 76 points in a game.

UNC coach Dick Crum said of the
Seminoles. "They're very balanced on

The "Fire Crum" banner displayed during
Saturday's UNC-N.C. State football game in
Raleigh was taken and dumped in a trash can at
halftime by a UNC official.
Residents of Teague dormitory displayed the
banner, but Sports Information Director Rick
Brewer said he thought it had belonged to State
"I thought they were playing a prank that would
damage our recruiting efforts," Brewer said.
"A lot of the best (high school) players in North
Carolina were at the game, and we didn't want them
to see the banner."
But Teague resident Steve Woodruff, a senior
from Selma, said the banner had been displayed
from inside the Carolina section.
"I can't believe he couldn't tell we were Carolina
students," Woodruff said. "We were sitting against
the wall in the middle of the section."
Ross Powell, a Teague alumnus, agreed. "We
were in the middle of the Carolina section, and we
all had light blue on," he said.
Brewer said he went over to the UNC side during
halftime to see someone, saw the banner and tossed
it in a dumpster.
Woodruff said he, Powell and a few other Teague
residents had reported the incident to the police
at the stadium. Powell filed a report with the police
and told them that Brewer had taken the banner.
Brewer said that during the second half someone
had come into the pressbox and had asked him
where the banner was. "I told them which dumpster
I left the banner in, and that was the last I heard
of it," Brewer said.
Powell said he had gotten the banner back from
the police after the game.
"I had no idea that Carolina students would
display such a banner," Brewer said. "Everyone's
entitled to their own opinions, but it's embarrassing
for that to be seen on T.V."
Woodruff said that even if State students had
displayed the banner, Brewer had no right taking
"He has no right to violate our First Amendment
rights like that. He has no jurisdiction over there,"
Powell agreed. "It doesn't matter what his reason
was. What he did was wrong," he said.
Powell said he had meant no harm to the
University. "We're the best fans Carolina has," he
said. "We go to all the games. We just want people
to know there is some displeasure with how Coach
Crum runs things."
Brewer said he didn't think the banner represented
students' majority opinion. "I didn't want two or
three kids to misrepresent the University," he said.
Powell disagreed. "It's no secret that people are
displeased with . . : (Crum)," he said. "And it's not
just a small group of people either."
That power-packed team is charac
terized by depth on both sides of the
ball. Three different quarterbacks have
started games this season for the
Seminoles, and five have seen action.
In the Tulsa blowout, Eric Thomas
threw two touchdown passes in the first
half, then gave way to freshman Chip
Ferguson, who threw three TDs in the
third quarter. Thomas, Tar Heel fans
may recall, engineered a 28-3 win over
UNC in the 1983 Peach Bowl in his
first college start. That was the only time
these two teams have met.
"We've got Eric Thomas, who con-'
tinues to do well in games," Florida
State head coach Bobby Bowden said
of his quarterback situation. "Then
we've got the freshman Ferguson who
can really throw the football. If our
remaining games come down to a
situation where weVe got to pass the

Billy Warden, a junior, emerged from nine of the nuttiest
guys on campus as Mr. UNC at the Circle K's contest
Thursday night in the Great Hall.
Warden, sponsored by Student Television, entertained the
audience with several comedy routines, beginning by riding
a plastic reindeer onto the stage and wearing a purple cape.
Gary Davis, a sophomore, took second place and Kevin
Sullivan, a senior, placed third. Also competing were Sam
Bright, Jeff Byrd, Grady Crumpler, Erik Daubert, Stephan
Govan and John Partridge.
The contest, which benefited the Association of Retarded
Citizens of Orange County, was part of this week's
The contest was divided into four categories: a parade
of contestants, original cheers, improvisations and talent.
During the parade of contestants, Davis wore a skirt.
"Have you ever wanted to wear a skirt?" Davis asked.
"It's addicting. . ..'The' next best thing to a liberal is a
Republican in a dress."
During the improvisations, each contestant picked a card
at random with a situation to which they had to respond.
Davis had to contend with a female professor who was about
to fail him for missing his final exam.
"I was kidnapped by Egyptian terrorists who told me to
get into a Toyota. . . . Okay, it wasn't a Toyota. There weren't
any terrorists but I have peanut butter for you . . . ," Davis
Warden was faced with a job interview during which he
was confronted with nude pictures of himself. .
"That's some sort of banana," Warden said. "I was working
for Dole at the time."
Bright had to pretend he was Andy Griffith telling Opie
about the birds and the bees.
"Well, Ope, you know how sometimes when you see Barney
and his girlfriend in the squad car, and I tell you that he's
trying to flatten her out because she's on a diet. . . . Well,
it's a different type of exercise," Bright said.
The contestants demonstrated some unusual talents in the
last part of the show. Davis did an Elvis Presley imitation
and Warden followed with a dog imitation.
After the contest, Warden said: "I feel like an orange tree
that thinks it's growing oranges, and one day, a huge person
comes along with a four-foot, flexible, foam rubber, multi
colored, polka-dotted fang and says, These aren't oranges.
They're mother of pearl inlaid diamonds.'

but not up to the purple expectations of my granddad, Pluto."
against 20th-ranked Kansas.
While this Florida State team has
some impressive statistics, it has had
some problems as well. They completely
collapsed in the last six minutes against
Auburn, allowing four touchdowns to
lose 59-27. FSU's opponents have also
completed 61 percent of their passes
against the Seminoles and have gained
an average of 4.8 yards per carry on
That's good news for the North
Carolina offense, which has featured the
passing barrage of junior quarterback
Kevin Anthony and wide receiver Earl
Winfield (second in the ACC in recep
tions) and the upsurged running attack
buoyed by freshman tailback Derrick
Fenner, who's gained 259 yards rushing
in the last two weeks.
"I don't have to tell anyone North
Carolina has a solid football program,"
Bowden said. "They don't make mis
takes and they don't beat themselves.
You see now, they're sitting up there
with a chance to still have a great
The key to that great season and an
upset of proportions unseen in the
Crum era may well be the defense. The
North Carolina 1 1 have had four goal
line stands in the last two games.
The defensive backfield has picked
off 10 passes, the line has recorded 15
sacks, and the linebackers have been
immense. Senior Carl Carr leads the
team in tackles, has broken up five
passes, recovered a fumble and has two
interceptions. But the man who worries
Florida State scouts the most is sopho
more linebacker Brett Rudolph, who's
displayed more quickness at that
position than any linebacker the Sem
inoles have faced this year.
It would be a good bet not to take
either team by 60 points this week.

After receiving $12.5 million from the
Legislature to reduce overcrowding in the state
prison system, N.C. prison officials are studying
the possibility of privately, run prisons and
alternatives to imprisoning offenders.
The Legislature granted the money in response
to a lawsuit filed by four inmates in which the
state agreed to cut prison population by a third
in the southern Piedmont, said Melinda
Lawrence, attorney for the inmates. Though the
settlement applied only to that particular prison
system, prisons across the state may be affected,
"At the time of the settlement, the state
indicated that the changes they agreed to would
have to be implemented statewide," she said.
"But at this moment, I dont know of any
concrete plans or money allocations by the
The primary concern of the N.C. Department
of Corrections is public safety, said Ben Irons,
legal counsel for the DOC. "It is difficult to
maintain security where you have a prison that
has more prisoners in it than it should," he said.
"It is more difficult to prevent disorders, such
as disruptions or prison escapes. It's not just
a concern for the prisoners, though the prisoners
are a concern we have."
Irons said the state also had a humanitarian
concern for the prisoners. Overcrowding creates
tension, both between the inmates and between
the inmates and staff, resulting in intolerable
living conditions, he said.
The state plans to reduce overcrowding mainly
through construction, but is considering
expansion of its intensive probation program,
Irons said. Any significant extension of the
probation program will require legislative
approval and funding, he said.
Those serving time for misdemeamors are
possible targets for an expanded probation
system, but some felons may be considered, Irons
"(Misdemeanors) are just one target," he said.
"There are others who don't necessarily fit in
the misdemeanor category but who could be
handled in probation programs.
"There are some that are dangers to the public
and they're right where they belong...we don't
intend to move them," he said.
Richard Giroux, of the N.C. Prisoner Legal
Services in Raleigh, said he thought the public
would not react strongly to an expanded
probationary system, once they understood the
"When it's getting so expensive to lock people
up, even people who are conservative on the
issue start thinking more liberally and consid
ering alternatives to keeping people in jail," he
Irons said the DOC is considering privately
run minimum-security prisons as one answer to
the overcrowded system. The state currently runs
minimum-security prisons across the state where
inmates are given considerable freedom, but are
"locked down" at night, he said. The advantage
of a privately-operated system is the speed with
which it can be constructed, he said.
"Their principal advantage is that they can
build quickly and we need some relief," he said.
"The courts are sending us more people than
we can deal with."
Though private corporations claim they can
save the state money through private prisons,
there is no guarantee of taxpayer savings. Irons
"We won't really know that for certain unless
and until we get one into operation," he said.
"I would say that they will probably not cost
any more than those operated by the state, but
I would not be prepared to say they will save
a lot of money."
Lawrence, the attorney for the inmates, said
the settlement, in the form of a consent decree,
required that the crowded conditions be
eliminated by July 1987.
The settlement does more than attempt to
relieve overcrowded conditions, Lawrence said.
The state has also agreed to set up education
and training programs for 80 percent of the
prisoners in the twelve southern Piedmont
prisons, as well as agreeing to construct
recreation and day room facilities and upgrade
the heating and cooling systems, she said.
