meet about area
By SCOTT GREiG
Chapel Hill Town Council and
Orange Water and Sewer Authority
(OW AS A) met jointly Tuesday night
for "one-on-one dialogue" about
what OWASA has been doing over
the past year and what it might do
in coming years, according to Everett
Billingsley, OWASA executive
Billingsley said that in discussions
with David Taylor, Chapel Hill town
manager, availability and quality of
water were the two greatest concerns
brought forward by council
"It became apparent this summer,
as it has in the past, that University
Lake, the town's main water supply,
is not large enough to provide the
needs of the community, Billingsley
said. "That is why several years ago
we bought Cane Creek Reservoir for
the purpose of converting it into a
large supplier of water to be used
when the need was apparent.
Billingsley said bids for the build
ing of a permanent dam at that
facility are now being advertised.
Construction is expected to start in
The construction will take at least
three years to complete, he said.
Once finished, Cane Creek Reservoir
should retain a one-year supply of
Billingsley said it was evident that
other sources of water were neces
sary because when the supply drops,
OWASA cannot count on intercon
necting lines such as those with
Hillsborough because the closest
community simply takes over the
Councilman David Pasquini
backed this assertion, saying, "When
push comes to shove, this intercon
necting system usually only leads to
fighting at the watering hole."
Billingsley assured the town coun
cil that the coming years would show
a much more efficient distribution
of water because of a plan to route
water from Lake Butner through the
The lake would supply approxi
mately four million gallons of water
a day, bringing the available resour
ces to a possible nine million gallons
a day in three years, he said.

Four representatives from the
Soviet Physicians Committee for the
Prevention of Nuclear War will
deliver a speech, "Community Con

ing Nuclear War, at 3:30 p.m.
Wednesday in Hamilton Hall 100.
A question-and-answer session
will follow the speech, sponsored by
the Triangle chapter of Physicians
for Social Reponsibility.
The physicians are: Leonid Ilyin,
director of Moscow Hospital No. 6
(where Chernobyl victims were
treated), chairman of the Soviet
National Commission for Radiation
Protection and vice president of the
U.S.S.R. Academy of Medical
Sciences; Vladimir Almazov, chair
man of the committee's Leningrad

of Leningrad and director of the
Leningrad Cardiology Institute;
Feodor Soprunov, director of the
Institute of Parasitology and Trop
ical Medicine and a corresponding
member of the academy; and N.
Kipshidze, chairman of the commit
tee's branch in the Republic of
Georgia and director of the Institute
of Therapy in Tbilisi.
Ilyin will also speak at 1 1:30 a.m.
Thursday at the clinic auditorium on
the fourth floor of the Old Clinic
Building of N.C. Memorial Hospital.
He is scheduled to discuss the
medical effects of the fire at the
Chernobyl nuclear reactor.
during this year's drought was just
under nine million gallons a day,
with the average hovering around six
to seven million gallons a day.
"We've been making a great move
to provide , more efficient water
service to Orange County," Billings
ley said. "It used to be where only
75 percent of the water that left our
plant was sold, now we sell approx
imately 90 to 91 percent of the water
that is sent out."
Councilman R. C. Smith said
wanted to tell residents of Chapel
Hill they would have a reasonably
adequate supply of quality water in
the future, but Billingsley said Smith
could be sure OWASA could fulfill
the residents' needs.
"We feel we have an adequate
supply of water for the next three
years until we get the Cane Creek
facility finished the way we want it,"
Billingsley said. "That's not to say
we won't have some conservation
measures imposed during that time
period, because we are at the mercy
of the weather."
Billingsley added that he hoped
the rainfall would begin to become
substantial in November, with Uni
versity Lake filling back to capacity
early next year.
Councilman Jonathan Howes
questioned whether Jordan Lake
could be looked at as a viable source
of water for the near future. .
But Billingsley said that while
Jordan Lake could supply about 100
million gallons a day, it was not an
inexhaustible supply and would be
an expensive source to develop
because of the advanced treatment
techniques required to ensure safe
Council members also asked how
involved OWASA should be in
determining growth in the commun
ity, because where sewer lines are laid
often determines where growth can
Billingsley and other board
members replied that OWASA

provider," not a consultant on
Local wooden 'zoo' to
By JENNIFER ESSEN
BYNUM The designer is Clyde Jones, but if you
call him an artist, hell disagree.
In his yard, as in Asheboro, there's a zoo with an
impressive variety of species. But Jones' group of over
400 animals isn't flesh and blood they are made of
sycamore and cherry wood stumps.
Some of those creatures will visit the campus
Thursday, herded into the Union Gallery for an exhibit
called "Clyde's Jungle." The show is sponsored by the
Carolina Union's Gallery Committee.
Michelle Barger, Gallery Committee chairwoman,
said she had wanted to display area art, and after hearing
about Jones, she wrote to him about a possible show.
Barger said she was surprised when Jones came to
the Union two days later and agreed to exhibit his work.
He doesn't have a car, and Barger said she wasn't sure
how he got to campus.
Included in the exhibit will be photographs of Jones
at work, along with reindeer, a pelican, a spider, dogs,
snakes, birds, alligators, an octopus, a shark with legs,
a Carolina-blue ram and watermelons.
But Jones, 47, said he doesn't understand what all
the fuss is about.
Until about seven years ago, he worked as a self
employed landscaper. After injuring his leg and eye,
Jones started making wooden creatures to help occupy
his newly-acquired time. He said he wanted to provide
companions for the two cement deer in his yard.
Another animal who stood alone was the pig on the
roof of Crook's Corner restaurant on West Franklin
Street. About 50 of Jones' animals now surround the
pig, and others peer from the foliage around the patio.
The sculptor's first piece, a pig, stands behind the bar.
Recently, Jones showed a group of the Union's gallery
committee members his collection so they could choose
works for the exhibit: He wore a nametag reading "Clyde
Jones Exhibiting Artist."
Having never studied art, Jones said he sees a root
or piece of wood and merely shapes it into whatever
he thinks it resembles. "Sometimes it messes up though,"
he told the students. "Nobody's perfect."
Jones primary tool for sculpting the animals is a
chainsaw, but he said he also relies on a chisel for more
detailed work such as the hide of his alligators.
At Jones' zoo, you can pet the animals. In fact, he
encourages it. "Hell no, you can't hurt them," he said.
Art is not a thing; it is a

Police said huge clouds of smoke

The yard surrounding the small green house where
Jones lives with his mother is so densely populated with
his animals that it's easy to overlook Jones' sheepdog,
Bigfoot. He's real.
But it's not difficult to pick out Jones' home. A
"California Republic" flag, a flag of Florida and a
colorful kite mark the site.
From the bushes peers the head of a long wooden
snake, in a car, constructed from a stump sit a pig and
a dog. On the porch a monkey straddles a donkey.
But animals aren't the only inhabitants of this zoo.
Along the front walkway stands Jones' "Flying Lady,"

red and green plaster.
The devil himself guards the "Flying Lady." His head
is indented and cradles a large red stone. "It's just
something I throwed together," Jones said about the

favorite pieces called "The Flintstones" a man sitting
in a prehistoric-type car wearing a painted mop and

Because Jones loves animals, he makes animals. "I
was raised on a farm raised in the woods and stuff,"
he said. "1 know a lot about animals."
Jones showed off a baseball hat neatly embroidered
with "I Love Animals." He said a girl in Chapel Hill
gave it to him.
Included among Jones' animals are a large yellow
elephant, alligators, pigs, dogs, deer, snakes, spiders, a
pink pelican, a hippopotamus and an anteater "or a
large mosquito, one," Jones said.
Gourd birdhouses hang from trees that shade the
animals. Perched on the topmost branches are ceramic
squirrels, monkeys and birds including an American
"You're likely to find just about anything out here,
but you haven't seen nothing yet," Jones said as he went
from animal to animal.
A five-minute walk down a wooded path led to a
grassy field with more animals. The children can play
with them there, Jones said.

his works in the field. They're also outside a gift shop

Billings was appointed, citing par
tisan favoritism on the part of

Billings said the system of electing
judges was a result of the Democratic
attempt to keep Republicans off the
bench. "The Democratic legislatures
have seen to it that the system has
been a closed shop."

Republicans have finally made it
to the Supreme Court because of the
party's growing strength in North
Carolina and Martin's popularity,
"Gov. Martin makes good choi
ces, he chooses good people, and he
chose me," she said.
When asked why Exum resigned
from the court to run against her,
Billings said that Exum's resignation
was a ploy used by the Democratic
Executive Committee in an attempt
to keep Republicans off the court.
She said that if she loses in the
fall and Exum had not resigned, a
vacancy on the court . would be
created. Martin would then appoint
someone to fill this seat, presumably
a Republican. The appointee would
serve for two years, until the next
general elections, she added.
"This way, Gov. Martin's appoin
tee will serve only a few months
before having to face an election,"
she said. "The Democratic Executive
Committee guaranteed my opponent
the Democratic nomination for chief
justice if he would resign his position
as associate justice first."
Although she was appointed to the
bench as an associate justice only a
year ago, she said Exum's 11 years
on the court as an associate justice
did not make him more qualified for
