If the issue of full divestment comes
to a vote during today's UNC Endow
ment Board meeting, it will probably
not be passed by the board, according
to one Endowment Board member.
The meeting is scheduled for 9:30
a.m. in the Carolina Room of the
"It doesn't matter what other univer
sities are doing," board member Robert
C. Eubanks said in a telephone inter
view Thursday. "At UNC, we have
always been leaders not followers."
Eubanks and other Endowment
Board members said they would discuss
both the recent student demonstrations
and "what's best for Carolina" when
considering during the meeting UNC's
full divestiture from companies doing
business in South Africa.
Representatives of the UNC Anti
Apartheid Support Group, the College
Republicans and Students for America
will give their positions before the board
decides whether to divest of all financial
holdings in South Africa, according to
Student Body President Bryan Hassel.
Endowment Board member George
R. Ragsdale said the board had to take
many things into consideration before
making a decision on divestment. "We
have to consider what is best for
Carolina its faculty, students and
university community, all of which
benefit from the endowment funds,"
"We have to be careful of how we
conduct ourselves, so that others will
contribute money in the future and
we need it badly," Ragsdale said.
Endowment Board member Earl N.
Phillips Jr. said Thursday he thought
the meeting was called in response to
the anti-apartheid group's shanties and
the College Republican and SFA's
"Berlin wall" constructed recently in the
"It certainly is an accelerated timet
able," he said. "It's not a regularly
scheduled meeting; the board usually
"We're looking forward to making a
decision we can all live with, and then
move on," Phillips said.
Eubanks said the board had a large
responsibility in the way it maintained
the endowment funds, and it should not
succumb to outside pressures.
Eubanks said he felt that the situation
in South Africa needed to change, but
he said American corporations should
not be forced to abandon the country.
"If there is any way to change the
situation there, I support it," he said.
"But divestiture is not that way. I admire
the students' concerns, and hope my
own children will one day have that type
"It's just a question of how to bring
about that change," he said.
Eubanks said that as an investment
counselor he had clients who asked that
their investments not be made in
companies involved in tobacco, liquor
and entertainment. "It gets to the point
where there's no alternative," he said.
"The endowment money is there so we
can provide excellent facilities and
professors for the students.
"We all love UNC, and we all want
to better mankind, but we have to sit
down and come up with a solution that's
more permanent and more creative,"

Members of the Anti-Apartheid
Support Group vowed to remain in
their shanties "indefinitely" unless the
University Endowment Board votes for
divestment in its Friday meeting.
Chancellor Christopher C. Fordham
III has given the group a deadline of
7 a.m. Monday for dismantling the
shanties, regardless of the board's

the group would stay in the shanties
unless the board votes to divest the $8.8
million the University has invested in
companies that do business in South
Africa. : - ' -. - .
"Some members will be arrested," she
said, adding that although the group
would not resist arrest, "they will have
to remove us." Azar said the group had
no plans for disbanding, even if the
University divests. She said they hoped
to remain organized in order to help
other universities work' toward
The "Berlin wall" constructed Mon
day by the UNC College Republicans
and Students for America will be taken
down by Monday morning, said Allen
Taylor, former vice chairman of the
"We will, follow the Chancellor's
instructions," said Taylor, who met with
Fordham Wednesday afternoon.
"We're not planning to leave them
up," he said, adding that the wall had
achieved its goal of showing that there
is another side of the divestment issue.
He quoted Fordham as saying that
University Police and workers would be
prepared to take down the structures.
Anti-apartheid group members
denied they were "professionally trained
to resist arrest," an allegation that has
been made by Taylor and other College
"As secretary of the Anti-Apartheid
Support Group, I can assure you that
no members are professionally trained
to resist arrest," said Eric Walker.
Walker said the group had no plans
to physically resist any security officers,
although the members are prepared to
be arrested if workers attempt to tear
down the shanties.
In a related story, the group members
recently learned that the University's
endowment funds being protested are
larger than the $5.7 million they

$rald5pgto cost 3 parking spaces
By MARIA HAREN
University students, faculty and
employees will be minus 200 to 300
total parking spaces in the next
academic year mainly because of on
campus construction, said a traffic
office official Wednesday.
Mary Clayton, director of transpor
tation, said that during the last four
to five years smaller construction sites,
including the new chemistry and the
new computer sciences buildings, have
consumed about 600 parking spaces.
This building abundance has
resulted in higher parking permit
prices, she said, with the money going
to the upkeep and improvements of
existing lots mainly because potential
on-campus parking lots are
According to the 1986 traffic prop
osal, effective July 1, student permits
for various zones would jump any
where from $9 to $27 more per space
compared to 1985 parking figures.
Faculty parking increases range from
$12 to $60 more for a specific zone.
The highest student permit costs $99,
while the costliest facultv permit is
"We attempt to appropriately price
parking," Clayton said. "Some people
have said we should be charging $500
a space . . . but we are looking at more
Clayton said the price was subsid
ized; the student did not pay the real
cost of a space. One parking space,
including building and maintenance, .
she said, costs $1,000.
The price really boils down to the
available parking cut by construction,
Clayton said. "The sad truth is, we
just don't have any more room for
parking. Ten to 15 years ago, there
was obvious vacant space. Now weVe
reached the boundary."
But in the last boundary, South
Campus, no space exists, Clayton said.
In fact, South Campus construction
is gobbling up much of the available
parking. Clayton listed current build
ing sites and other proposals:
Rosenau parking lot, consisting
of 180 faculty spaces, will revert to
building space for the addition of more
public health buildings. "Rosenau has
the biggest immediate impact," Clay
ton said. "We know we're going to
lose those spaces."
A new Biotechnology building,
being constructed in the Mitchell
parking lot, will consume 60 to 70
student, faculty and employee spaces.
Between Morrison dormitory and
the water tower, 70 to 80 spaces will
be covered by the new Security
Services building, which will house the
traffice office. "More than likely the
student (parking spaces) will be
transferred to Craige, and the
employees will go to the fringe lots,"
Two proposed buildings, an
Ambulatory Care building, and a
Musculoskeletal Diseases Center and
Alcohol Studies Center, will occupy
an undetermined South Campus
Gravely parking lot on South
Campus, lot C-3, will be covered by
an addition to the Radiation Oncol
Carmichael dorm will add pres
sure on the parking lots of South
Stadium Drive in front of Parker and
Teague dorms, Clayton said. Those
lots are occupied by employees and
students. "Parking there is already a
problem," she said.
Because of the fewer spaces, car
owners must be relocated to other lots;
some will go to nearby lots, while
others will park at the fringe lots at
Airport Road, Manning Drive and the
SAC, Clayton said.
Besides costing $4 per year for
parking, the fringe lots will become
more attractive to permit holders,
Clayton said, if plans for a shuttle
system to the P lot. Airport Road,
Added lighting, improved security
measures and more accessible bus
shelters are also being considered at
the Dean E. Smith Student Activities
Center, the F lot, and Manning Drive,
the FR lot, she said.
All this costs money. Despite the
higher permit costs, Clayton said: "We
feel like we've met a significant
number of student needs."
Students, she said, are more likely
to get a parking place near their living
place than faculty are to their work
place. "We meet about 15 percent of
student permits," she said.
Although about 1 1,000 total spaces
are available, a permit pool of more
than 13,000 exists, she said, making
the most of each space. "Because of
the morning and evening permit
holders, for example, three users are
occupying that one space, but at
different times," she said.
Clayton said the SAC would not
take away student parking, although
to the University "athletics is impor
tant; permit parking isn't ... that's
just a fact of life."
A possible parking deck at the SAC
is being discussed, Clayton said.
"Decking the SAC is a very real
possibility, at $5,000 a space." Because
of the S AC's drawing power, Clayton
said, decking at South Campus was
more reasonable than on North
Campus or at the Airport Road lot.
Other parking alternatives are being
proposed, such as a 40 space expan-r
sion of S-3, the Law School parking
lot, Clayton said, and 100 added
spaces at F lot.
It may even come to the point, she
said, where all new growth could be
in the fringe lots

By JEAN LUTES
Are you in the mood to listen to a writer
whose 30-year career has included writing for
"Star Trek" and traveling with the Rolling
Stones? How about a writer who says he has
always known there was greatness within him?
Or one who recently received threats on his life
from a bag lady?
Harlan Ellison, all of the above, will be on
hand tonight at 8 p.m. in Memorial Hall to
share some of what he called the "wild and
wonderful experiences" of his life.
Ellison, who has written 42 books, over 1 ,000
stories, essays, and newspaper columns, and
numerous teleplays and motion pictures, will
be giving his presentation as a part of Carolina
In "Medea: Harlan's World," Ellison's latest
published work, he created an imaginary planet
system along with a crew of writers. He also
served as the creative consultant for the
television scries. "The Twilight Zone," until he
resigned last November because of network
Ellison, when first telephoned Tuesday, said
he was too busy watching "Police Academy 2"
to talk further.
When called back Wednesday, he said, "I do
what Mark Twain or Will Rogers did I just
ramble." And ramble is what Ellison did
"In my books and in the introductions to my
stories I tell absolutely everything," he, said. "I
know very well if I conceal nothing no one can
ever blackmail me, and most important I can't
Ellison said he always answers questions
completely, no matter what anyone asks. "If
someone asks me how many times I've played
with myself in the past three days, IH tell them."
The four-times married writer said he has led
an adventurous life. "I probably won't do
marriage again," he said. "1 don't do it very
well. I'm erratic."
Ellison said two weeks ago he had to chase
a bag ladv who threatened to kill him awav
from his garage with a baseball bat. He said
the woman, who was "a friend of a friend,"
had been circling around the house smoking
"She was a pathetic creature, but 1 had to
get rid of her," he said.
Ellison said he had realized most of his
personal dreams, but still wanted to finish a
few novels and climb Mount Kilimanjaro in
"There's almost nothing I haven't done," he
said. "I do what I want and go where 1 want."
He said he had associated with the best and
the brightest people.
Ellison said he had always wanted to be a
writer, although he had worked at many other
jobs throughout his life. At different times, he
was a bricklayer, a stand-up comedian, a race
car driver and a tuna fisherman. When he was
14 years old, he said, he drove a dynamite truck
in Shelby, N.C.
"1 always knew there was greatness in me,"
he said. "I knew whatever I turned to I would
succeed in because I had the need to.
"1 can't ice skate and 1 can't paint, but
anything I tried to do seriously I did real well."
Ellison said most people think they can write,
but very few have the determination and
dedication to succeed as writers. "They come
up to you at cocktail parties and say they could
write a bestseller but they don't have the time,"
Writing is hard physical labor, he said, and
requires long hours of enforced loneliness in
front of a typewriter. "The best you can hope
for every time is to win the race with yourself,
to beat what you've done before."
Ellison said a desire for money was never a
reason for writing. "I write for myself," he said.
"I really don't give a damn what anyone else
"Somebody who wants to make money
should be an electrician or a plumber, which
is noble," he said. "When your toilet's backed
up, you dont want Dostoevsky to come fix it,
you want a plumber."
Everything has a social message, he said. "I
write in hopes that what I write will make it
a better world," he said, and all writers feel a
little bit like Zorro.
Ellison said every writer wanted to be
remembered to leave something for posterity.
He said any writer who denied that was lying
through his teeth.
"The sun starts to glow in my stomach," he
said, when young writers come up to him and
say that he has influenced their writing.
Ellison said he writes about reality. "What
I do is write about the received world," he said.
"1 take the mirror of reality and turn it slightly."
"There's a difference between having an idea
and a story," he said. "It's what you do with
He said a bad day for him was one when
he wasn't able to write and everything he did
from the moment he got up in the morning
affected his writing in some way.
"I'm not a great speaker or an expert," he
said. "I'm just a writer and I can just report
what I see."
"They're very funny lectures," he said.
Work and struggle and never accept an evil that you can change. Andre Gide
