deployment of artillery and missiles at the

America’s top general says could endanger

Gen. John Shalikashvili, chairman of

the Iranians had deployed anti-aircraft
missiles on islands in the Straits ofHormuz,
through which ships carrying much of the
world’s oil supply pass.
President Clinton said the Hawk mis
siles were “rather old” and had been in the
possession of the Iranians for some time.
Shalikashvili said U.S. reconnaissance
had spotted the Iranians “putting missiles
onto launchers, which they haven’t done

ABA: Law School Must Improve Facilities
BY CHRISTINA MASSEY
Because the General Assembly has still
not funded necessary building expansions
and improvements, the UNC School of
Law’s reaccreditation might be in jeop
ardy, law school officials said Tuesday.
The law school must improve its physi
cal facilities in order to meet standards set
by the American Bar Association, said
Lissa Broome, associate dean of academic
affairs for the law school. Other improve
ments the law school has had to make
include raising faculty salaries and im
proving the library. “Adding facilities to
our school is a priority,” she said.
Provost Richard McCormick said the
school was looking to the General Assem
bly for funds.

might have been guilty of exaggerating a
bit, but there’s no doubt Childress is a great
one. He finished Tuesday’s tilt with 26
points on 8-of-10 shooting, including4ofs
from the 3-point line, and was a perfect 6 of
6 from the free throw line.
He was joined in the spotlight by Wake
sophomore Tim Duncan, who finished
with 25 points and 12 rebounds in 39 min

Duncan were providing the spark for Wake,
the Tar Heels were getting mixed produc

said. “We just tried to get him off the block

SIOO Meal Plan Requirement
On-Campus Residents Would
No Longer Be Forced to
Spend Minimum Amount
BY JULIE CORBIN
ASSISTANT UNIVERSITY EDITOR
Students who are tired of paying SIOO
for a meal plan they don’t use may be able
to save that money soon.
The required SIOO minimum meal plan
for all on-campus residents will be reviewed
by the Board of Trustees this month.
“(The policy) is going to be on the agenda
for review in March. At that time, the BOT
will vote on whether to continue or to
discontinue the meal plan,” Student Body
President George Battle said Tuesday.
It is quite possible that the SIOO require
ment will be discontinued as early as next
semester, Battle said.
“It’s my expectation at this point that it
will be discontinued,” he said. “I think the
time is right. This is supported by Marriott
(the company that has the contract with
Carolina Dining Services), the administra
tion and students. There’s no reason for the
board to oppose it. It has a very good
chance of passing.”

“We’re still hoping that the legislature
will provide the funds to construct the
addition to the building,” he said.
In 1993, the Board ofTrustees approved
plans for a sl2 million addition to the
school, but the General Assembly only
allocated $1 million for the construction
last July. Asa result, construction plans
were temporarily put on hold.
McCormick said he thought the school
would be successful in lobbying for funds
from the General Assembly.
“It’s a high priority,” he said. “It’s the
second priority in the Division of Aca
The first priority is an addition to the
Paul Green Theatre to house the Depart
ment of Dramatic Art, McCormick said.
However, the General Assembly does not

UNC sophomore Jerry Stackhouse (42) goes head-to-head with Deacon shotblocker extraordinaire Tim Duncan.
Stackhouse led the Tar Heels with 26 points and 11 rebounds. Duncan paced Wake Forest with 12 rebounds.
Battle said he had worked with repre
sentatives of the administration and of
Carolina Dining Services ever since he was
elected to bring the policy up for review.
“Over the course of the year, I basically
talked with the administration to get ad
ministration support and Marriott support
for it,” he said.
“We’ve been talking about this all year.
They support it,” Battle said. “I’ve worked
with them on other things, like the renova
tion of Lenoir."
He said he intended to spend the time
remaining until the BOT meeting later this
month lobbying members of the BOT to
support dropping the SIOO minimum meal
“Now that we’ve gotten past the initial
hurdles, I’ll spend the rest of the month
lobbying the BOT,” Battle said.

“Who knows? The legislature might
decide to fund it before it funds the Center
for Dramatic Art,” he said. “I’ll be thrilled
if it (the law school) gets funding.”
The ABA, which establishes standards
for legal education across the country, in
formed the school earlier this year that it
needed better facilities, said Ellen Smith,
director of public information for the law
“In January, the only thing the ABA
told us we needed to work on was improv

aware of this.”
Smith said that the law school had plans
for anew building but that those plans
would be put on hold until the state legis

Locals Want Tax, Gun Laws From State
A proposed entertainment tax and local
flexibility in gun-control legislation were
concerns expressed by residents during a
public hearing held by the Chapel Hill
Town Council on Monday night.
The hearing was the second opportu
nity the public had to comment on 17
preliminary proposals that will be brought
before the Chapel Hill legislative delega
Horton said the entertainment tax issue
had been brought before the T own Council
in previous years and had made it to com
mittee in the General Assembly, where it
died due to a lack of support.
The proposal for an entertainment tax
includes adding $1 to ticketprices forevents
at large facilities, which would include
Kenan Stadium and the Smith Center. An
entertainment tax could possibly generate
$500,000 to $600,000 annually, the memo
Chapel Hill resident Roland Giduz said
he favored an entertainment tax. The town
needs additional sources of revenue and an
entertainment tax would be fair because
ticket buying is a voluntary purchase, he

the building will be funded, but we ’re hope
The law school will continue to report
to the ABA on the status of the building,
McCormick said the $ 1 million already
allocated had gone to planning and design.
“We have an architectural design that
has been approved,” he said.
The ABA reviews the law school every
seven years so it can be reaccredited,
Broome said. Usually, once a school is
accredited, it remains accredited unless
there are problems, she said.
“I do not see any problem that would
prevent our being reaccredited,” she said.
McCormick also said the law school
had endorsed the entertainment tax be
cause it was a reasonable tax and was in the
best interest of Chapel Hill residents.
Town Council member Joyce Brown
said that in order to enact a local entertain
ment tax, Chapel Hill would have to re
ceive a special enabling act from the Gen
eral Assembly. A tax like the entertain
ment tax must be evaluated on a case-by
case basis by the General Assembly, she
Gun control was another issue discussed
at the public hearing. Gerald Drake, a
member of the Triangle chapter of Physi
cians for Social Responsibility, said he
favored strict gun-control laws. Because
the state constitution contains a clause
relating to the right to bear arms, the state
constitution itself must be changed to al
low for more flexibility in creating local
gun laws, Drake said.
Chapel Hill already has the toughest
gun control laws in the state. The Town
Council passed five firearms restrictions in
November 1993 after Kristen Lodge-Miller
was shot dead in July of that year while
jogging. At the time, the ordinance was
one of the strictest in the state.
But in the 14 months following the pas
sage of the ordinance, four people have
been killed by gunfire in Chapel Hill, and
after the shootings on Henderson Street

for a complete ban on guns within town

“The law school will not fail to be reac
credited, but the ABA will keep reminding
us that the facilities are not what they
should be— and we agree.
“The law school is accredited, and it
will continue to be accredited.”

gal education for the ABA, said the ABA
could not comment on the accreditation
statusofaparticular school. Judith Wegner,
deanofthelawschool, could not be reached
for comment Tuesday.

To Cap Off
Top of H3l
BY RYAN THORNBURG
Come September, a brew pub and res
taurant will be the finishing touch to what
has been a two-year construction project at
the Top of the Hill building at the comer of
Franklin and Columbia streets.
Top of the Hill Restaurant and Brewery
is now in final financial negotiations with
Riddle Commercial Properties of
Fayetteville to sign a lease for the third
floor of the building. On Thursday, restau
rant owners and Riddle Properties repre
sentatives will meet to discuss financial
matters and plans to begin the restaurant’s
move in sometime next month.
Five men from across the nation will
own and operate the restaurant. Third
year UNC law student Scott Maitland and
his friend from California, Dan Ward, will
work with Manhattan restaurateur Joseph
Smith, beer expert Daniel Bradford and
accountant Thomas Theisen.
The five partners of Micro Managers
will own 51 percent of the business with
the rest of the financing coming from banks
and private investors, Maitland said.
Top of the Hill plans to serve “Ameri
can fare with a Southern twist,” Maitland
said. Entrees would range in style from
sandwiches to steaks and range in price
from about $6 to sl6.
The idea for the restaurant came to
Maitland last March while he was sitting in
Judges Coffee Roastery. “I was just think
ing about how well the coffee shops were
doing and how there was a lack of brew
pubs in Chapel Hill, but from there it wasn’t
something I was going to act on, ” Maitland
Riddle had announced its plans to put a
restaurant on the top floor of the building,
but exactly what the restaurant was going
to be had been a closely guarded secret.
Representatives ofßiddle Properties could
not be reached for comment Tuesday
Maitland said Riddle Properties had
been approached by several different pro-

Nearly 1,000 people signed a petition
circulated by Drake and his wife in front of
the post office on Franklin Street Jan. 27.
The petition asked the state legislature to
allow Chapel Hill to ban guns.
The rifle used by the gunman on
Henderson Street was not a weapon cur

reason Drake and others are seeking tough
Unlessthestate constitution is changed,
Chapel Hill will not be able to enact gun
control laws, he said. Gun lobbyists exert
enormous power in the legislation, so gun
control legislation is difficult to pass at the
state level, he said.
A statewide referendum for greater gun
law flexibility would be the only way to
gain greater control over gun legislation at
the local level, Brown said.
Horton said the Town Council would
meet with the legislative delegation Friday
at an open breakfast meeting at the Siena
Hotel on East Franklin Street. At that
meeting, the Town Council will present
the 17 concerns to the legislative delega
tion and ask for advice about which pro
posals would be feasible, he said.
The Town Council will meet March 15
to decide which items will be presented,
and the proposals will then be presented to
the General Assembly by the Orange
County legislative delegation.
