Chapel Hill mae chaiged with assault off UN C sfadeot
By KIMBERLY EDENS
Assistant University Editor
A Chapel Hill man was arrested
Wednesday and charged in connec
tion with the recent assault and
robbery of a UNC sophomore,
Chapel Hill police said Thursday.
John Healy, 24, of 715-B N.
Columbia St., was charged with
attempted rape, a first-degree sexual
offense, common law robbery and
assault inflicting injury, according to
In an unrelated incident, Healy was
also charged with robbery with a
weapon in the Jan. 6 robbery of Ken's
Quickee Mart in University Square.
Healy is being held on $250,000
secured bond in Orange County Jail.
The victim was robbed of an
undisclosed amount of money,
according to the police reports.
Capt. Ralph Pendergraph of
Chapel Hill police said Healy has a
lengthy prior arrest record, including
charges of first-degree burglary, drug
possession and assaulting a police
Pendergraph declined to describe
the first-degree sexual offense, but
said the victim was not raped.
The alleged crime occurred
between 3:30 a.m. and 4 a.m. Sunday
in the basement of the Beta Theta
Pi fraternity house at 1 14 S. Colum
bia St. A source who asked to remain
unidentified said the victim was
visiting friends in the house, when she
went downstairs alone to use the
bathroom and the man surprised her.
After the attack, the source said
the woman made her way upstairs
and was found by two fraternity
members, who took her home.
The woman was admitted to the
emergency room of N.C. Memorial
Hospital Sunday morning, and
released about seven hours later,
according to hospital officials.
One fraternity member, who asked
not to be identified, said the victim
came to the fraternity house fairly
"I have no idea how he got into
the house," the fraternity member
said. "He could have just wandered
in off the street it was Saturday
night and the doors were open. Also,
there weren't many people around at
any one time. They came in and out."

Despite disagreement over setting different
penalties for use or sale of different types of
illegal drugs, a Board of Governors' commit
tee came one step closer Thursday to forming
a drug policy for all UNC-system campuses.
The most recent revisions in the policy call
for the expulsion or discharge of any student,
faculty member or University employee
caught selling drugs such as heroin, LSD and
The revision also would allow chancellors
to suspend students or faculty members
accused of selling or possessing illegal drugs
before any judicial proceedings are held, if
the chancellor decides the person is a threat
to property or to the safety of others in the
Lloyd Hackley, UNC-system vice president
for student services, said students who are
disciplined as a result of a University judicial
proceeding are still subject to prosecution by
When the drug policy receives final
approval, all campuses in the UNC system
will be required to write a policy on the use
and sale of illegal drugs, using the board's
policy as a guideline.
"We're setting minimum penalties for
maximum offenses," said David Whichard,
committee chairman. "Well leave administra
tion of it up to the individual campuses."
The committee will meet again in early
December to approve the final draft of the
policy. The policy will then be presented to
the Board of Governors for approval at its
During the meeting, committee members
argued about setting different penalties for
the sale and possession of Schedule I or
Schedule II drugs, such as heroin, LSD or
cocaine, and for drugs classified as Schedules
III through VI, such as marijuana, pentobar
bital and codeine.
The North Carolina Controlled Substances
Act classifies illegal drugs in schedules,
according to potential for abuse, whether the
drug has an accepted medical use and whether
abuse would produce psychological or

setting different penalties diluted the policy's

The Eugene Falk Distinguished
Professorship is a $250,000 endow
ment set up by UNC alumni William
and Mary Harrison of Durham.
The Harrisons chose to honor Falk
because of the inspiration he gave
Mary Harrison, who completed
requirements for her degree this year,
when she was a student in his class.
Falk is a Marcel Bataillon professor
emeritus of comparative literature
and professor of French.
"We believe that people who are
successful at making money have a
responsibility to support those people
who have committed themselves to
humanitarian pursuits," William
Harrison, president of Harvest Cor
porate Services Inc. of Durham, said
"Professors like Gene Falk deserve
to be recognized," he said. "Dr. Falk,
through his research and teaching and
through his historical ethical perspec
tive, has helped make the Compar

William Harrison received his
bachelor's and master's degrees in
1962 and 1964 respectively. He is on
the Board of Visitors for the Line
berger Cancer Research Center at
UNC. Mary Harrison is a member
of the UNC Board of Visitors.
Both Harrisons were on the steer
ing committee of the Foundations for
Excellence Campaign, sponsored by
the Arts and Sciences Foundations.
The other professorship, the
Pardue Professorship in Humanities,
was established by David and
Rebecca Pardue of Burlington. David
Pardue, president of the Dacourt
Group Inc. in Burlington, is a real
estate syndicator and broker.
He received a bachelor's degree
from the School of Business Admin
istration at UNC in 1969, and is a
1973 graduate of the Young Execu
tives Institute in UNC's Graduate
School of Business Administration.
Pardue said Thursday that he and
Harrison both feel strongly about a
broad education in the humanities for
all students, regardless of their chosen
field of study.
Pardue is also on the board of
trustees of Elon College and the Tom
Haggai and Associates Foundation.
Income from the Harrison-Pardue
endowment will supplement the
salaries of distinguished scholars in
the College of Arts and Sciences, and
support their research.
Harrison said he and Pardue are
trying to ensure quality teaching for
undergraduates in the humanities
"A sound education and under
standing of those curricula, which are
collectively known as humanities,
give us a better ethical and historical
understanding, allowing us to better
cope with investment banking prob

Administrators uarge students
to get involved in campus issues
By MANDY SPENCE
University administrators cited
student apathy as the biggest
problem on campus Thursday
night at "The Gathering W."
About 30 students attended the
question and answer session
between students and administra
tors, sponsored by Morrison Res
idence Hall's government.
The campus officials who spoke
on the panel were Frederic
Schroeder, dean of students;
Wayne Kuncl, director of Univer
sity Housing and Donald Boulton,
vice chancellor and dean of Student
Student Body President Brian
Bailey and Residence Hall Asso
ciation President Kelly Clark were
also members of the panel.
"Why we have lost our vigor to
involve ourselves, I do not know,"
Boulton said. "But it has
As examples of student apathy,
panel members cited the small
number of students at the forum
and the failure to elect UNC senior
Rob Friedman to town council in
the Nov. 4 election.
"The day we get over a thousand
votes, they (council members) will
be over here," Boulton said. "They
respond to constituencies."
Bailey said a student appointed
by the student body president will
serve as an ex officio member of
the Chapel Hill Town Council. The
student member will attend meet
ings, make motions and participate
in debate but will not be allowed
"Nothing worth achieving comes
easily," Schroeder said. "You
accomplish nothing in your world
if you sit back. You have to get
out and fight for it."
Schroeder said students could
broaden their educational expe
riences by participating in activities
on campus and in the community.
"Get out and get involved,"
Schroeder said. "By doing so you
are going to learn about yourself
and expand your talents much
more so than by sitting in a class,
dutifully taking notes."
Students at the forum said they
were concerned about the proposed
site of the alumni center and the
need for additional parking areas.
Boulton said the protests against
the alumni center site are similar
to protests prior to the building of
Carmichael Residence Hall and the
Student Health Service building.
"Someday, if this particular
building wasn't built there, there
will be a different building in that
spot," he said. "Of all the buildings
that could get there, this is the one
I'd like to be there."
The panel listed the limited
amount of land available to
develop parking areas and the
expense of building such areas as
reasons for the high cost of parking

ttate legislators ietroduice bills to combat AIDS threat
By SHARON KEBSCHULL
In response to the AIDS epidemic,
legislators at the state level have
introduced numerous bills to amend
previous legislation and create new
guidelines for everything from pre
marital testing to AIDS education.
In 1987, congressmen introduced
550 bills into state legislatures, said
Mona Rowe, a senior research assis
tant with the Intergovernmental
Health Policy Project, a non-profit
organization which tracks health
policy legislation. About 90 of these
proposals passed, she said.
Some of the bills fixed loopholes
Monday: Defining the virus
Tuesday: Tracing its origin
Wednesday: One man's story
Thursday: Teaching the risks
Friday: The politics of AIDS
in previous laws while others con
cerned notification and testing
confidentiality provisions, she said.
Two states, Louisiana and Texas,
require proof that marriage license
applicants have undergone HIV
antibody tests, Rowe said. The Texas
law does not go into effect until the
HIV infection level rises to .83 percent
of the population, 10 times the
current level, she said. The Louisiana
law requires people testing positive
for HIV to show proof that the
physician informed his or her partner,
Hawaii, California and Virginia
laws mandate the distribution of
AIDS educational materials to cou
ples applying for a marriage certi
ficate, she said. .
About 12 states also passed AIDS
education laws, Rowe said. The laws
differ in specifying what grade levels
should receive AIDS education, but
many laws require at least some form
of AIDS awareness during elemen
tary, junior and senior high school,
she said. Most also require parental
consent or involvement, she said.
Several states emphasize sexual
abstinence, Rowe said.
"I would worry more about drug
abuse," Rowe said. "I would imagine
there is more involvement in drugs
In the U.S. Congress, legislators
introduced a number of AIDS
related bills in the last few months,
said Kay Holcombe, a legislative
analyst for the Department of Health
and Human Services.
Several of the bills received com
mittee action, but none have been
passed. The main bills that are likely
to go through include an appropri
ations bill, which will increase fund
ing for everything from research to
education to prevention efforts, she
said. Two bills addressing HIV-test
confidentiality have also been intro
duced, she said. Neither has been
An increase in federal legislation
may spark more state legislation in
areas of confidentiality and discrim
ination, but it depends on whether
states will need to amend current,
laws, Rowe said. ;
"This was the year of testing
(laws)," Rowe said. "Next year I
expect to see a flood in another area."
In North Carolina, two AIDS
related bills passed the 1987 legislative
session. One requires a public school
AIDS education plan, and the other
expands the communicable diseases
Introduced by Rep. Charles Cro
mer, R-Davidson, the communicable
