Town officials have had mixed
reactions to the Chapel Hill Town
Council's vote last week to abolish
the town's financially troubled

assume the powers of the authority,

funding for its 312 apartments for

gram will be better in the long run,"
authority chairwoman Rosemary
Waldorf said. "There will be more
opportunity now for the tenants to
voice their opinions."
Mayor Pro Tern Bill Thorpe, the
only council member to vote against
the proposal, disagreed.
The red tape in town government
will prevent the Chapel Hill Housing
Authority from helping the tenants,"
Thorpe said. "If a room needed to
be fixed in one of the units, the
authority would have to get permis
sion from many people, which would
mean it would be a long time before
anything would get done."
Thorpe said he did not approve
of the plan because he did not think
the town had the legal right to spend
public funds on the authority.
He also said he did not think the
change would be best for the tenants,
because under the new agency they
would have to reapply to live in the
units where some of them had lived
for five to 10 years.
The purpose of the plan is to
improve maintenance of the housing
units, said Tina Vaughn, interim

director of the new housing
Vaughn said the Chapel Hill
Department of Housing would not
be run or financed any differently
from the authority.
"The basic day-to-day operations
won't change," Vaughn said. "There
are federal guidelines we always have
to follow for things such as lease and
Vaughn said that until the prop
osal takes effect, it is difficult to
predict the financial progress of the
new department or whether the
residents of the housing units will see
"Over the next 90 days, we will
be outlaying the plan, and we hope
the plan will be self-supporting,"

At the meeting Friday, trustee
William Darity is expected to
announce his decision on whether he
will resign from the board.
Darity, the only black member of
the BOT, threatened last month to
resign from the board after several
unsuccessful attempts to convince
the board to support divestment. He
called the board's stance against
The board voted 5 to 3 against
a proposal at its Feb. 27 meeting that
would have restricted University
purchases of goods made by South
African-related companies. Darity
wrote the proposal.

mem. the council would probably
vote to pass it.
The only amendment that can pass
by a majority at the meeting next
Wednesday is the same one that was
voted on at the April 13 meeting,
Bailey said. If the amendment is
altered, it could pass if approved by
two-thirds of the council; if only a
majority approves, the altered
amendment would have to be
revoted on, he said. Any council
member has the power to motion to
change the amendment.
If the amendment does not pass
on the 29th, Bailey said he was not
sure what the next step would be,
but the issue won't die. "The next
step will be planned over the summer
and carried out next year when
students are here." he said.

refused Tuesday to disclose the
nature of the plans for the buildings.

that they would probably not be able

HYDRA MIGHT TAKE THE STKJG
OUT OF HEART DISEASE.
The hydra not the nine-headed mythological serpent slain by
Hercules, but a tiny freshwater cousin to the jellyfish may ;
come to the aid of patients suffering from congestive
At least that's the preliminary findings by American Heart -Association
sponsored researcher, Dr. Georgia Lesh-Laurie. Her
research has led to the uncovering of a substance found in the .
toxin of the Hydra's sting that will strengthen the heartbeat.
The beauty of this discovery is that the new substance could -be
a replacement for digitalis, the current drug administered to
patients suffering from cardiovascular problems. Digitalis, made
from the purple foxglove plant, increases the heart's pumping '
power without increasing oxygen demand. But, patients with "
kidney problems cannot use digitalis.
The phenomenon was first noticed in people stung by
jellyfish. They noticed a sudden neurological and cardiovascular
response. In her research, Dr. Lesh-Laurie found that the toxins
contained a protein substance that increased heart rates and
pumping power, but seemingly without the side effects of digi-:
talis. The next sten is tn trv to develoD a drug with heart
stimulating responses, in a small enough amount not to trigger
the body's immune systems. . ;
Research is an investment that makes a difference. ;
