UNC students will have an
opportunity to exercise and have
fun this weekend while supporting
a good cause.
-Fall Volleyball Smash ,87,w co
sponsored by Lambda Chi Alpha
Fraternity and Henderson Resi
dence College, will be held Satur
day, Oct. 24, from 9 a.m. to 5:30
p.m. on Connor Beach, in front of
Connor Residence Hall.
Fifty or 60 teams, each comprised
of four to 10 people, will play in
the tournament. An entry fee of $20
per team will be charged, and all
proceeds will go to the new Ronald
McDonald House being con
structed in Chapel Hill.
The Ronald McDonald house
will provide a place for parents to
stay while their children are patients
at N.C. Memorial Hospital. This
will enable the parents who do not
live close to the hospital to be near
their seriously ill children without
incurring additional expenses.
Construction on the house has
been halted due to lack of funds,
according to junior Scott Boatw
right of Lambda Chi Alpha.
This is the first time such an event
has been held, but: more tourna
ments will probably be played in the
future, Boatwright said.
Liz Cass, governor of HRC, is
also helping organize the
UI think that this is a very worthy
cause," Cass said. "It's something
that we can give back to the
community. I'm sure that it will take
a lot more than we can give, but
if a bunch of groups on campus get
involved, we can make a big.
Applications for the tournament
can be picked up at the HRC desk

By SUSAN KAUFFMAN
.The Carrboro Board of Aldermen
voted unanimously Tuesday to adopt
a joint planning agreement among
Carrboro, Chapel Hill and Orange
County governments, in spite of
protests from residents of a local
Carrboro was the first of the three
governments to adopt the agreement.
The residents opposing the agree
ment are upset that it will allow
Carrboro to annex the 51 -acre Fox
Meadow subdivision located off of
Rogers Road, two miles outside the
Chapel Hill town limits.
Instead of becoming part of Chapel
Hill or remaining part of a rural
buffer zone under Orange County
jurisdiction, Fox Meadow will offi
cially lie within Carrboro's planning
The agreement will permit Carr
boro to expand northward, which is
important for future town growth
because it cannot expand far to the
south or the west.
Ken Meardon, a representative of
the subdivision, said he was disap
pointed that city and county planners
believed, they lacked a compelling
reason to move the jurisdiction line.
Residents of the subdivision attended
a public hearing last Week to submit
a petition requesting that Chapel Hill
annex the property.-rather than
"The bottom line is what is more
compelling than 100 percent of the
residents signing a petition to remain
in the rural buffer zone?" Meardon
The joint planning committee
decided Fox Meadow does not
belong in the 38,000-acre rural buffer
zone north and south of Chapel Hill
and Carrboro : because the lots are
smaller than the two-acre minimum
size, said Roy -Williford, Carrboro's
planning and economic development
director. ' : -
The committee's resolution delayed
annexation of Fox Meadow for at
least 10 years in an effort to put the
residents' minds at ease; Williford
said in an interview Wednesday.
Some board members said they
disliked the idea of forcing the
subdivision residents to become part
of a town against their will. Alderman
Hilliard Caldwell said his neighbor
hood, Bennington Hills, had been
involuntarily annexed into Carrboro.
"I can assure you if I am still on
the board in 10 years, 1 will never
vote for an annexation unless there
is agreement of the community,"
Caldwell said. - :
Chapel Hill and Orange County
will vote on the Fox Meadow sub
division agreement in the next three
