The student body president should

The resolution instead allows for

Fordham said allowing adminis

WXYC, a noncommercial station,

An ordinance that would give
Chapel Hill police the power to close
down merchants who sell alcohol
during-situations like the Aug. 31
bash on Franklin Street was pro
posed Thursday by Chapel Hill
Police Chief Harold Stone.
Sixteen representatives from the
town, the U mversity and the business
community met in the Student
Union to voice their concerns about
the growing problem of crowd
control and management in Chapel
Hill during large celebrations that
spill over into downtown.
The discussion centered on pos
sible, solutions to the problems that
arose during the Aug. 31 downtown
Franklin Street "party." Many
young people had used the event to
protest the rise in the legal drinking
age for beer and wine from 19 to
21, which went into effect at
During that time police charged
12 people, including five UNC
students, with various offenses.
Fifteen people were treated for
injuries, and damage to downtown
Chapel Hill was estimated at
The recommendation to close
down alcohol vendors, the most
controversial of all the solutions
proposed at the meeting, came from
The letter suggested that chosen
students be from the original nom
inations, Hassel said, and that the
selecting official not be allowed to
request other nominations.
"The selection process as it is now
ignores the time and effort we put
into selecting those nominations," he
The letter also suggested that an
extra step be added to the selection
process requiring the appointing
officer to write the student body
president and state his reasons for
requesting more nominations.
"If they ever wanted to go against
choices I'd made in anybody, they
should explain it in writing," he said.
"They should have a reason."
Before the resolution was
approved, all nominations were
approved by either Fordham,

"We want to involve XYC with
our future," said Frank Heith, the
other part-owner of Cat's Cradle.
"The club is a live version of what
they have over there (at WXYC)."
The bands are donating their time
and energy to the concert, but will
get free exposure on the tape, Heith
said. "It will be used as a marketing
tool for the bands."
Fox, who has recorded Modern
English, the Golden Palominos, and
others, will give each band a copy
of its set and let the group pick out
two songs to put on the tape. With

allow police to ask merchants who
sell alcohol to close their businesses
when alcohol use worsens the crowd
They would use it only in "special
situations," he said.
UNC Student Body President
Bryan Hassel questioned the possible
wording of such an ordinance,
asking how the ordinance would
define a "special situation."
But Stone said he did not feel it
would ever be necessary to use such
an ordinance, because the merchants
always cooperate with the Police
Major Arnold Gold of the Police
Department said things usually get
out of hand as the night wears on
because people begin to feel the
effects of the alcohol and tempers
begin to flare.
"There's just too much alcohol
involved," Gold said.
While town representatives
arrived at no concrete solutions at
the meeting, Donald Boulton, vice
chancellor and dean of student
affairs, said the meeting offered the
chance to air feelings and suggest
actions to counter problems during

The controversy stems from
Womack's rejection in September of
Marty Leary, who spoke against the
former campus food service, to the
Food Service Advisory Committee.
Womack had not explained his
actions in writing.
But Fordham said he did not think
there should be limits on officers
power to select committee members,
especially on their own committees.
"I don't think that's a terribly
important issue, because I don't
think it will happen that often," he
said. "I haven't rejected a presidential
nomination that 1 know of."
Hassel disagreed. "(Fordham)
wasn't willing to accept having to
explain things in writing," he said.

Fox said the tape will be a "true

the market are dubbed to give the
