BY JOE MILLER
Few seats were empty in Howell Hall
auditorium Friday as the School of Jour
nalism and Mass Communication hosted
a memorial service to honor former jour
nalism student Robin Clark. Those who
spoke said Clark’s vitality made him the
outstanding journalist he was.
Richard Cole, dean of die journalism
school, said Clark’s interest could not be
contained by the rl Maw cica. -y. .
“He was as smart as anything ...(But)
on thewhole he preferred to learn through
life than through any classroom,” said Cole,
who taught Clark.
Clark attended UNC in the mid-19705.
During that time, he was a staff writer for
The Daily Tar Heel where he served as
features editor in 1975.

NCAA rules state that no college ath

contracts with them. The four football play
ers implicated in the report told football
coach Mack Brown in a discussion follow

violated NCAA regulations.
“They told me they had not taken any
thing from any agents,” Brown said. “They
said they had not been involved in any
thing illegal and that they had not signed
contracts with anybody; and they did not
appreciate their names being put in the
paper and accused of possible infractions
when they didn’t do it.”

Towns to Debate Open Container Law
Chapel Hill might reduce
its penalty, while Carrboro
will consider its own ban.
BY WENDY GOODMAN
In the wake of Chapel Hill Town Coun
cil member Mark Chilton’s proposal to
reduce the penalty for carrying an open
container of alcohol, the Carrboro police
chief has proposed that Carrboro adopt an
open container ban of its own.
With the open container laws recently
enacted in Chapel Hill, town residents and
UNC students have moved much of their
partying to Carrboro to avoid the ordi
nance, said Carrboro Police Chief Ben
“Since Chapel Hill enforced their open
container ordinance, there are a few more
alcohol related incidents in the town,”
