Town council, favors proposed smoking, ban
By Amber Nlmocks
A proposal calling for a ban on
smoking in public areas has received
favorable response from the Chapel Hill
Town Council but has elicited little
discussion from town residents.
Chapel Hill Mayor Jonathan Howes
originally suggested the ban at the
council's annual planning retreat last
Presently Chapel Hill has no ordi
nances restricting smoking in public
places, Howes said. But many area
restaurants have designated areas for
smokers and non-smokers.
UNC Hospitals are smoke free, as
are many buildings on the University
No-smoking bans have been imple
mented in the Municipal Building, the
public library and other town buildings,
said council member Joe Herzenberg.
Howe said, "It's, standard in most
major cities. You can't walk into a res
taurant in New York, Washington, At
lanta, any major city, and not see it."
Council member Art Werner said he
would not necessarily support the pro
posal. "Don't most places already have
them? I think it would be a good idea if
it were a problem," Werner said. "If it's
working voluntarily, we don't need an
Many council members said they
received little feedback from the public
about the proposed ban.
"We've heard nothing," Howe said.
Council member Joyce Brown said
she was interested in discussing imple
mentation of the ban.
"I certainly think it's well worth in
vestigating," she said. "I am interested
in it. ... I haven't received any com
Werner said the ban could be prob
lematic in some instances.
"I heard something about problems
with it in bars," Werner said.
"It might be difficult to implement
in bars, where not a lot of police officers
are around to make sure the ban is being
enforced. We don't want to implement
anything we can't enforce."
Herzenberg said some residents who
favored the proposal had approached
him to discuss it.
"There are a few people saying that
the ban is going too far, but by and large,
there is quite a bit of response in favor
of the ban," he said.
No one has the constitutional right to
harm anyone with cigarette smoke,
"We've asked the town manager and
the town attorney to look into the spe
cifics of the proposal," he said.

Congressional leaders question Saddam's postwar status; Baker says Iraq will leave 'soon'
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON Secretary of
State James A. Baker DJ declared on
Wednesday that Iraqi troops "will leave
Kuwait soon," but he steered clear of
the question of Saddam Hussein's
House Speaker Thomas S. Foley,
meanwhile, said it would be "extremely
difficult" for President Bush to refuse
an unconditional Iraqi withdrawal
even if that meant leaving Saddam in

While the talk continued, Saddam's
army remained in Kuwait, and the world
waited for Bush to give his own troops
the go-ahead for the long-expected
Bush himself had nothing to say on
the subject in public. But Baker,
speaking at a luncheon for Denmark's
Queen Margrethe II, renewed the U.S.
demand that Iraq pull out of Kuwait
"immediately, totally and uncondition
ally" and comply fully with U.N. reso
lutions. "Anything short of that is un
acceptable," he said.
"One way or another, the army of
occupation of Iraq will leave Kuwait
soon," Baker predicted.
Foley, the top-ranking Democrat in
Congress, said lawmakers shared the
administration's concern about Saddam
remaining "a serious problem in the
gulf for years to come." But if Saddam
agrees to an unconditional withdrawal,
Foley said, Bush would have "a very
He said later that the question might
well be academic because there has
been no indication Saddam is prepared
to withdraw unconditionally, despite
much discussion of a still-secret Soviet
proposal on the subject.
U.S. military officials said they ex
pected victory if and when Bush gave
the green light for ground action. But
they also sought to dampen any expec
tations of a lightning triumph.
Lt. Gen. Thomas Kelly, director of
operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
noted that he and other officials had said
a day earlier a ground war would be
won "in short order."
"I should have said good order," he
said. "I don't think it's going to be any
kind of pushover. ... It's not going to be
One military official, speaking on
condition of anonymity, said "we are in
the eye of Desert Storm. There is
something of a lull right at the mo
ment." He added, "It suggests the ma
chinery is in place, and we are waiting
for presidential orders."
Nothing in the U.N. resolutions re
quires that Saddam relinquish powers
but Foley and House Minority leader""'
Robert Michel, nevertheless, worried
aloud about his remaining in power.
"We want to stay on course with our
military track and not be delayed," said,s
Michel, the Illinois Republican. "Even.'i
a cease-fire type of th ing certainly would,'
only play into Saddam's hands."
The Iraqi president was weighing a
Soviet peace proposal, which was still
secret but which Bush had dismissed on, i

be required" to end the conflict. 1
