The University and
Community Committee, an
action group of the Southern
Students Organizing
Committee (SSOC), set up a
booth in Y-Court Monday
selling Pepsi Colas for five
cents in cooperation with the
Durham boycott.
Martha Smith, in charge of
the project, was asked to close
down by Tom Shetley, director
of the Student Stores, because
of a trustee regulation that
prohibits any merchandising on
campus not administered by
the University.
The booth was allowed to
stay open when the Pepsis were
given a way rather than sold.
The money received was then
classified as contributions
rather than sales.
The Durham boycott,
sponsored by the Black
Solidarity Committee, is being
conducted against Northgate
Shopping Center and several
downtown stores, including all
products of the Coca-Cola
Company.
Shetley defined his position
as director of Student Stores as
an officer responsible for
enforcing trustee regulations.
He said that the regulations did
not cover the giving away of
merchandise.
The purpose of the Pepsi
stand was to offset the sale of
Coca-Colas on on campus,
especially in vending machines.
According to Shetley, all
vending machines on campus
are operated by the Triangle
Vending Company under a
five-year contract with the
University. The Triangle
Vending Company is a
subsidary of the Coca-Cola
Company.
Shetley challenged the Pepsi
stand Monday afternoon,
asking Martha Smith where she
obtained permission to operate
the stand.
Bruce Wells, chief organizer
for the University and
Community Committee,
demanded to see the law in
writing when he learned of the
trustee regulation.
When Wells requested to see
the Chancellor, Shetley
accompanied him to the
assistant to the Chancellor, Dr.
Claiborne Jones. Jones told
them that the drinks could be
given away instead of sold.
The Pepsi stand continued
to take in money the rest of
the afternoon, and it will be
open for the remainder of the
week.
The funds collected by the
stand will go to the Black
Solidarity Committee in
Durham.

The heavy rains dumped by
Hurricane Gladys on Chapel
Hill over the weekend "gave us
three weeks of life," according
to Grey Culbreth, Director of
University Service Plants.
"It could be said we gained
21 days' water supply this
weekend," he said.
Rains beginning Friday
night had totalled 3.96 inches
by Sunday night, raising the
spillway level at University
Lake from an all-time low of
minus 99 inches Thursday
night to minus 83 inches
Monday morning.
Culbreth noted that the
present Lake level is the same
as on Sept. 30, when the first
severe effects of the extended
drought were being felt.

Commenting on the total

cTaking into account the usage
of water by the community,
we probably received a gain of

Culbreth said he could not
estimate a lake level at which
the drought-striken community
would finally be out of danger.
"It. is not yet possible to
evaluate the runoff from the
rains," he explained.
"The ground Friday was so
dry that it soaked up virtually
all of the water which would
normally be runoff.
Thus the runoff will
probably amount to an inch or
less."
Culbreth also reported that
the first water to run through

pipeline tapping Durham's
water supply may be today or

section of the 12-inch pipe,

During the past several
weeks she has assumed
increasing responsibilities in
the student government office
which have led to her
appointment as an
administrative assistant.
In this role, she will be
responsible for general
management of the office, for
overall student government
purchasing along with Don
Milbraith, treasurer of the
student body, for traffic flow,
and for scheduling
appointments with the
president, as well as her duties
supervising the secretariat as
secretary of the student body.
In addition, Miss Spurlock
will be serving as chairman of a
recently formed advisory board
on women's affairs which will
have its first meeting on
Monday night. This board is
composed of a cross-section of
women's leaders to advise Day
on areas of concern to women,
that blacks are the problem at
all, he said.
This white attitude leads to
the black's difficulty in
conceptualizing himself. But
today the effort to form an
identity is not only the
problem of the black,
intellectual.
The search for a new
identity separate from the
white man's designation has
begun, Lincoln said. The names
"nigger," "darky," "coon,"
and even Negro are outmoded
because they define and
evaluate according to white
stereotypes, he said.

The funds from the 1967
Fast supported collective
efforts by poor people and
minority group members to act
on then own problems.
This year, the funds will be
given again to these
independent organizations of
the minority groups. In
addition, funds will be given to
aid projects which - are

non-students in the fight
against poverty and racism.

The demonstrators, most of
whom were UNC and Duke
students or former students,
picketed outside the center
while Southern Student
Organizing Committee (SSOC)
worker Mike Smedberg was
undergoing his physical
examination inside.
The SSOC representatives
had planned a "guerrilla skit"
to be performed outside the
center, but the performance
was curtailed when irate
Marine recruiters intervened.
A SSOC official at the
organization's headquarters in
Durham said Monday
afternoon that one of two
"actors" wearing Marine
uniforms was seized by a
Marine recruiter who tried to
force him into the induction
center.
The Marine officer was
prevented from dragging the
demonstrator off by the other
demonstrators. He then
summoned a police officer who
succeeded in forcing the
demonstrator inside, despite
the protests of other SSOC
representatives.
The SSOC "actor" emerged
from the center a few minutes
later, and then the other
uniform-clad demonstrator was
forced inside where he was

being released.
SSOC organizer Mike
Smedberg was told by draft

requests of their attorneys.

Facilities
By BOBBY NOWELL
DTH Staff Writer
Members of Student
Legislature's Ways and Means
Committee inspected the
sandwich-making facilities at
Chase Cafeteria Monday tp
"clarify some of the rumors
we've been hearing" about
UNC Food Service sandwiches,
according to Chairman Bill
Lee.
Mrs. Helen Moffitt, manager
of Chase, showed their
sandwich assembly lines,
equipment and storage rooms
to committee members and
representatives of the Daily Tar
Heel.
She assured them that
sandwiches are prepared and
leave Chase fresh every day.
But she added that their
deliverymen are not obligated
to pick up old snadwkmes, and
that it is the responsibility of
each canteen or business
manager to learn the dating
code and keep sandwiches that
are more than a day old off the
shelves.
Mrs. Moffitt became
manager of Chase in Sept. and
acknowledged that "some of
the students complaints were
justified at first."
But she added, "We have
worked hard on these things
and have very nearly corrected
them."
Chase prepares
approximately 4000
sandwiches per day for sale on
food counters in University
businesses.
NSA Delegates
Interviews Begin Thursday
By LAURA WHITE
DTH Staff Writer
Interviews for delegates to a
National Student Association
(NSA) conference on
Institutional Racism will be
held Thursday and Friday, Oct
24 and 25, according to
Virginia Carson, NSA student
coordinator at UNC.
All students interested in
applying for the delegation
should come to Roland Parker
II, Graham Memorial, between
4 and 5 p.m. on those days.
The conference, to be held
at Notre Dame on Nov.
28-Dec. 1, will be "an
important starting point for
action at Carolina in
areas . . . related to the racial
problem," according to the
conference appropriations bilL
Before leaving for the
congress, the three delegates
will prepare a full report, citing
what things the university is
doing about institutional
racism, what the delegate
himself believes, what he wants
to do, what problems the
delegate encountered in doing
his research, whether the
delegate is willing to work at
the Conference and, later on
the campus to solve racial
problems.
A letter for the USNSA
states that "Competent,
in-depth research into
institutional racism in the
university can be done on
campus by concerned and
willing students. The most
important ongoing functions of
this research should be
educational and tactical in
nature."
The educational aspects to
be researched by the delegation
include: improving the UNC
curriculum to include "black
content" courses and "white
identity" courses; university
policies off campus, basically
concerned with land-holding
and expansion, university
investments, and the draft;
university discrimination in the
hiring of professors, in
admissions processes, in
housing, job-study hiring,
athletics, scholarships, and m
the handling of racial incidents;
the university power structure;
and the cultural bias of compus
life.
A bill to appropriate
$361.50 to cover the delegates'
expenses to the conference
passed Student Legislature last
Thursday.
The bill stated that
"according to the credentials
plank voted into the
Constitution at the 21st
Congress in Kansas, every
student government must show
positive steps it has taken this
year to eliminate racism in its
own community before its
delegates will be seated."
An amendment stated that
the delegates must appear
before the congress and be
approved by the Ways and
Means Committee.
