Although council members might
not support extending the time limit,
Bailey said the "sunset clause"
attached to the amendment would
make it more attractive to them.
According to the sunset clause, the
ordinance will expire in about one

People who have . been parking
their cars on North Boundary Street
will no longer be able to park there
or on any public street for more than
48 hours without having their cars
ticketed or towed.
The Chapel Hill Town Council
enacted this new ordinance to
regulate parking after Feb. 9.
Many students park their cars on
public streets and onlyget them on
weekends, said Lt. M. F. Clark of
the Chapel - Hill Police Department
Support Services. This becomes a
nuisance for people living on these
streets when, they cannot have
visitors over because there is no place
for them to park their cars, he said.
"Chapel Hill has the ordinance to
keep abandoned vehicles off the
road," Clark said. "Sometimes they
become an eyesore and are vandal
ized. We have several abandoned
cars we are getting ready to auction
The ordinance went into effect
Feb. 9, but the No-Parking signs
were not put up until March 23,
Clark said. '
People who -were ticketed for
parking their cars where the signs
were erected between March 23 and
March 27 could -have appealed the
citations earlier, but not now, Clark

"There have been very bad

said Vladmir Slepak, a Jewish
radio engineer who has been
trying unsuccessfully for 17 years
to obtain an exit visa. "But on
the other hand, there are now
some signs for hope."
Since Passover last year, 1,000
Jews have been allowed to leave

Fly ball downs pigeon
NEW YORK A pigeon
flying in short left field at Shea
Stadium helped the Atlanta
Braves score two runs against the

Dion James,-leading off the

McReynolds moved into position
to catch the fly ball, it struck the

in front of him as James cruised
for a few hours, return to take their
cars and then park them there later,
the police department will not ticket
them, Clark said. An officer knows
how long a car has been parked by
marking it, Which involves recording
the license plate number, the time
and place it was parked, he said.
Clark said residents can no longer
park their cars in front of their
houses if they live on a public street.
"If I left my car parked in front
of my house, technically it would be
an abandoned vehicle if it's left for
48 hours," Clark said. "You must
park your car in the driveway." 1 '
Many students park on McCauley
Street, but they must move their cars
every 48 hours to avoid citations, he
"After 48 hours, we ticket the car
and notify the owner," Clark said.
"If the owner doesn't come get the
car, we tow it away."
Clark said some dangerous places
on McCauley Street make it difficult
for drivers to see traffic, so the police
department regulates parking there.
"We want to keep it clear as much
as possible for the safety of the
public," he said.
Clark said he realizes there are
parking problems on campus and
suggested that students park on
University property with a parking
permitStudents who do not have
a permit sometimes can pay to park
in private parking lots, he said.
