It would be difficult to prevent a
future incident like the Aug. 31
Franklin Street fracas, and Univer
sity administrators could have
worked harder to prevent that
protest, student leaders told admin
istrators in a meeting Wednesday.
During the meeting, both students
and . administrators presented
general suggestions for curtailing
incidents like the one on Franklin
Street, where students protesting the
drinking age rise caused police to
block off parts of Franklin Street
and damaged businesses along the
Both Residence Hall Association
President Ray Jones and Student
Congress Speaker Jaye Sitton ques
tioned the administration's commit
ment to preventing further incidents.
They cited the administration's
rejection of proposals made last
spring aimed at preventing incidents
like the Franklin Street protest.
"The comment this past spring
was that it's OK as long as it doesn't
happen on our campus," Jones said.
Vice Chancellor and Dean of
Student Affairs Donald Boulton
assured the group that he was
committed to finding alternative
plans. "Whatever we come up with
and want to lay on the table, I will
go to my collegues in the adminis
tration and say, 'If we propose this,
are you going to support us?' "
Boulton said. He added that any
alternative plans needed to be
supported by the chancellor the

Soviet citizens don't want a
nuclear war any more than Amer
icans do, a Soviet doctor told about
300 people in Hamilton Hall
"You must understand our peo
ple," said Feodor Soprunov, director
of the Institute of Parasitology and
Tropical Medicine in Moscow.
"They are afraid. Our people haven't
forgotten the last war."
Soprunov and three other,
members of the Soviet Physicians
Committee for the Prevention of
Nuclear War are visiting the Triangle
area to discuss the medical effects
of Chernobyl and nuclear war
prevention. The physicians were
invited to give their speech, "Com
munity Convocation: Prescription
for Preventing Nuclear War," by the
Triangle chapter of Physicians for

agreed it is important to establish
friendship and exchanges between

have to understand it if we want to
remain alive. We think, I, my wife,
preserve the good relationship
between the town and the University.
"Basically what we want to do is to
preserve a tradition we feel is
important to this town and the
University the right to gather
together to celebrate and to protest
providing we neither damage other
people's property or their physical
being," he said.
Although no definite plans were
made, the group agreed that the
University should provide campus
celebration areas to keep crowds
from taking over Franklin Street.
"Given another celebration, we
ought to be better prepared to offer
our own alternatives," Boulton said.
"We should be able to have a number
of things on our campus. That
doesn't mean we have any control
over anybody any more than we had
before, but that we have alternatives
planned so that there is something
besides Franklin Street for those
who now can't legally go there (to
Bryan Hassel, student body pres
ident, said he agreed with Boulton,
but added that no one can expect
alternative activities to keep all
students off Franklin Street.
"A lot of people are going to go
to Franklin Street no matter what
we do," he said. "You can't lock
everybody up, so it's just a question
of what you can do to siphon off
(people from Franklin Street)."
Most of the group's discussion
centered around how and where to
hold celebrations of sports events.

"There is no doubt Russians view
legitimate news differently than we
do," Rupen said. "What they con
sider spying, Daniloff might consider
a legitimate news story."
John S. Strickland, a senior
history major from Hendersonville,
said, "We don't need to make this
a major stumbling block. The
Soviets might really think he's a spy."
Rupen said the case is also impor
tant because the United States and
the Soviet Union believe that it will
set a precedent of one-for-one trades.
If such a precedent is set, the
United States and the Soviet Union
will be vulnerable, Rupen said.

business, my city, my people.' Now
we have to think in another way . . .
that we are all human beings and
we share the same human fate."
Soprunov said his first reaction
was to decline the invitation to visit
the United States because he was
afraid to meet Americans.
"Now I am very happy," he said.
"In Atlanta, I have been invited to
stay with an American family. I have
the possibility to see an American
family from the inside . . . I'm glad
because I have the feeling that you
are thinking like our people. You
want peace. Your children are just
like our children."

Racially restrictive clauses
escaroe notice off citizens
By BRYAN GATES
Special to the DTH
When the Senate held hearings on
the appointment of William Rehn
quist as Chief Justice of the United
States, critics seized on his purchase
of homes with racially restrictive
covenants as evidence of racism.
In an editorial on Aug. 1, The
(Raleigh) News and Observer criti
cized Rehnquist for having such a
restriction on his property. Rehn
quist has said that he did not
remember reading the restrictions on
the deed. The editorial asked, "How
likely is it that Rehnquist, himself
a skillful attorney, did not notice
or was not made aware of this
add-on to the deed."
The associate editor of the N&O,
Ferrel Guillory, has a restrictive
covenant on his home which prohib
its negroes or persons of negro blood
from occupying his house unless they
are domestic servants. Guillory is in
charge of the paper's editorial page.
The restriction was placed there
on May 21, 1918, and, according to
the deed, attaches to the property
forever. Guillory said he did not
know that the restriction was there
but was not surprised that he had
"I was never informed," Guillory
of the whole planet."
The physicians lecture about
prevention of nuclear war in facto
ries, said N. Kipshidze, chairman of
the Soviet committee's branch in the
Republic of Georgia and director of
the Institute of Therapy in Tbilisi.
He said friendship between
Soviets and Americans is essential.
"We know it is a very dangerous
situation now," Kipshidze said.
Americans have little knowledge
of the Soviet Union, Almazov said
during a question-and-answer
period. He said Americans may have
been misinformed about the Cher
nobyl nuclear accident that occurred
"One million deaths?" he asked.
"I am absolutely certain that it's a
great mistake. A little more than 150
people got acute radiation disease.
About 200 persons were hospital
ized. Some had a rather severe form,
a combination of acute radiation
disease and burns. Thirty-one per

said. "Unlike Rehnquist, I didn't get
a letter informing me."
When asked if he was troubled by
the restriction, he said, "It bothers
me in the sense of the general moral
principle." Guillory said if the
restriction could be moved fairly
expeditiously he might give it a try.
However, he said, "1 don't feel
morally or ethically bound by it."
Al Adams, a former member of
the N.C. General Assembly and a
lobbyist for some 23 different
groups, said he was aware of a
similar restrictive covenant placed on
his home, but only because he did
his own title work when he pur
chased his house.
Adams said that most of the time
these unenforceable restrictions are
not even included in the title opinion
for title insurance. Every home in
his neighborhood has a similar
covenant, he said. Since it is common
knowledge that such restrictions
have no legal effect, it would be
foolish to go to the trouble to have
one removed, he said.
The criticism of Rehnquist's res
trictions was "a cheap shot that
weakened a valid argument against
Rehnquist," Adams said.
Rehnquist was confirmed by the
Senate on Sept. 18. He received more

"no" votes than any other successful
Supreme Court nominee in history.
The previous record was a tie among
Rehnquist's nomination as an asso
ciate justice and two other nomina
tions to the court.
. Cameron Park, Adams' neighbor
hood, is one of the more enlightened
areas in Raleigh, Adams said. In the
last presidential election the precinct
voted 2 to 1 in favor of Mondale,
and in the 1968 election it was the
only white precinct in North Carol
ina won by Hubert Humphrey.
Jack Nichols, the lobbyist for the
North Carolina chapter of the
American Civil Liberties Union, has
a racially restrictive covenant on his
home as well. Nichols said he had
no idea it existed until the flap over
the Rehnquist case started. He made
a bet with his wife that there was
one on their house, he said, and he
won. He said he would not go to
the trouble to have it removed.
Philip Meyer, a UNC professor of
journalism, said that a restriction on
a house that he owned in the
Washington, D.C., area had a
different twist. The deed stated that
for reasons of health the property
may not be sold to a member of any

Students may have an easier time
during drop-add next semester, as
officials in the University Registrar's
office look for ways to avoid long
lines and confusion until a new
telephonic registering system is
installed in 1989, officials say.
"We're going to change our sche
duling . . . maybe move the seniors
to Tuesday afternoon . . .to take the
burden off Wednesday," Tom Black,
associate University registrar, said.
"About 4,000 students did drop
add on Wednesday (Aug. 20), so if
we can take one-third of that number
and move them to the previous half
day . . . the load will be distributed,"
A questionnaire, written by Grant
Wolslagel, assistant University regis
trar, and Black, was randomly
distributed to students in the gym
during this semester's drop-add. ; .
According to the survey's sum
mary report, 48 percent of the
respondents spent over three hours
in the gym Wednesday morning,
whereas 12 percent spent over three
hours Monday (Aug. 18) morning.

the No. 1 problem of the current
registration system, and the time
spent dropping and adding courses
as No. 2.
Most of the students surveyed
during the three days of drop-add
in Woollen Gym said they would
willingly pay a $10 or more user fee
to register by computer over the
telephone, according to a summary
report prepared by the University
Students were asked to choose
which fee, ranging from $5 to $50,
they would be willing to pay to
register using a tone-dialing
Forty-four percent of the 350
respondents said they would pay a
$10 fee. Twenty-three percent would
pay a $5 fee, and 25 percent would
pay as much as $25.
Three percent of the third day's
respondents said they would be
willing to pay a $50 user fee. Most
of the students in the gym on that
day were upperclassmen.
Freshmen and some professional
students participated in drop-add on
Aug. 18 and 19. Transfer and
graduate students attended on the
Aug 19 also. All other students were
admitted on Aug. 20.
The questionnaire provided the
Registrar's office with some idea of
how students rate the registration
procedure and other services they
offer. Students were asked where
