Weekend Rain Raises
Hopes; Breaks Drought
A little more than an inch of rain
during the weekend "did a whole lot of
good" as far as Chapel Hill's water
shortage is concerned.
Grey Culbreth, director of the
University Service Plants, said MOnday
the 1.15 inches of rain Sunday and early
Monday raised the level of University
Lake, the town's only source of water,
"The ground soaked up the rain like a
sponge," Clubreth said, "but it washed
the dust off and cooled the temperature.'
The rain and coller temperatures,
brought by a cold front passing thorugh
the area, lowered the town's daily water
consumption from 5 million gallons to 4
"It helped our faith as much as
anything," Culbreth said. "People have
short memories. I heard someone at lunch
wishing the rain would stop."
SP lb Meet
The first fall meeting of the Student
Party will be held today at 9:15 p.m. in

Howard, legislative seats in James,
Carrboro and the west part of Chapel Hill
will be filled.

Bello said in his letter, "The message
they (the legislators) are trying to impart
is that any visitation agreement short of a
self-determined policy is unacceptable to
them and that the principle of
self-determination is more important
thatn the loss of self-adjudication."
Bello was referring to the
administration's position that all students
who participate in the SL policy, and are
charged with violating the administration
policy, will be brought before a
Bello's letter was a reply to a letter he
received from Cathey Friday. In that
letter, Cathey expressed regret for
Student Legislature's support of the Open
House Agreement, as the student
visitations policy is called.
By that support, Cathey said, "the
legislature has deliberately chosen to
pursue a course of action directly in
opposition to University policy.

branch of Student Government may

The local reservoir is now 42 inches
below normal, the same level as Friday,
but Culbreth expects the level to rise
withing the next 24 hours as drainage
from the upper levels of Morgan Creek
reaches the reservoir.
The university is still pumping two
million gallons of water daily from
nearby Durham and will continue to do
so until the lake gets back to 36 inches
Culbreth said more rain is expected in
the next two to three days.

community," Cathey continued.
Bello replied, "Quite frankly, I think
the administrator who can throw stones
accusing us of attempting to speak for the
entire University community ought to be
careful of his own glass house."
Dean Cathey said Monday Bello's
letter "was a very good reply. I am
pleased to have this reply from Tommy.
"I am going to do everything I can to
bring up this matter before the
consultative committee referred to in
Tommy's letter," he added.
The Trustees Consultative Committee
to which Bello referred is an advisory
body composed of student body
presidents, faculty and trustees from each
campus in the Consolidated University.
The committee was active in resolving
questions about the Disruptions Policy
Bello claimed all channels for student
efforts for the self-determination policy
have been exhausted. He said the

effective route the administration could

Consultative Committee will be any more

Board," Bello said, "but perhaps these

sake, will realize the futility of a

Residents of Victory and Odum
villages have renewed a campaign begun
in 1968 to obtain special parking -stickers
Chairman of Odum -Victory Village
Board of Alderman Gerd Bartsch
explained the situation, "We must have a
separate zoning law for the
Odum-Victory Village housing area due
to the fact that anybody can park in the
village. It is not zoned.
'To ehrninate this we've got to zone it
and get a sticker."
Bartsch submitted a request to the
Traffic and Parking Committee during the
summer. On August 25 he was sent a
letter signed by William D. Locke,
'm ember of Traffic and Parking
Locke said, "During the summer a
sub-committee of the Traffic and Parking
Committee determined the inadvisability
of established a special parking permit for
the residents of the married students'
As reason for the denail Locke cited
"residents unwillingness to surrender
eligibility for A-l or A-2 parking
privileges on campus, closeness of housing
area to campus and new parking areas in
the vicinity which should alleviated the
shortage of parking spaces for residents
However, said Bartsch the "so-called
sub-committee that met during the
summer to discuss this particular, item
consisted, according to a verbal statement
made to me by Mr. Locke on or about
Autugst 27, of Mr. Locke, Chairman of
the Traffic and Parking Committe, Allen
Waters, Alonzo Squires, Captain Bynum
, Riggsbee, and Arthur J. Beaumont."

like the apple to Adam, a fruit that will
not be disdained until one has the

Friday that "a more effective way for a
dean to express his opinions to students
would be to attend the legislature
Cathey said he has never been invited
to a legislature meeting, but "whenever
they want me to come, I will be pleased
The thrust of Bello's letter came in the
conclusion, where he quoted the
University's Undergraduate Bulletin as
emphasizing student autonomy in student
"If I may be so audacious to ask, when
are we going to be permitted to follow
these age-old guidelines?" he asked.
Bello said he has never argued for the
full-time visitations policy adopted by
some houses. But, he said, "the matter
has gotten to the point where too much
valuable time and energy has been and
will continue to be wasted on a subject
that has, in my opinion, no direct effect
on the purpose of the University as an

much time and energy have been given to

The biggest problem residents think, is
that Odum, unlike Victory Village, was
built permanently so that no more spaces
can be added.
There are 334 legal parking spaces in
Odum. There are 306 apartments. That
leaves 28 extra spaces or one for every
eleven families. Bartsch said the problem
is twofold because not only do many
families have two cars, but many people
who are not residents or guests park
The problem is complicated by the
fact that parking officials have refused
the requested stickers unless A 1 and
A 2 stickers are forfeited. This would
put student wives who are university
employees in a very difficult position,
"We must," he said, "be able to have
the A-l and A-2 decals for persons
authorized to have them-mostly working
wives who put their husbands through

Of N.C. Law Review
by Lana Stames
Joan Brannon, a third-year law
student, has bee appointed editor of the
N.C. Law Review.
Mrs. Brannon is the second woman
appointed to the position. The first was

resignation this summer of Haywood
Rankin, who decided not to participate in
the Law Review this year.
A law student makes Law Review after
his first year by being in the top 20 per
cent of his class or by having a 3.0
average. There are 23 students in Law
Review this year. The students are
required to write two short case notes.
Other responsibilities include
both radio and television. People wept in
the street in a state of shock.

News of Nasser's passing swept quickly
through Arab capitals, where portraits of

administrative duties and footnote
Each spring the old board of editors
meets to make recommendations for the
next year's board. Recommendations are
made on the basis of grades, the quality
of the two notes, interest and
administrative work. The faculty then
votes on the recommendations.
The Law Review is a non-profit
organizaiton. It publishes one volume a
year in four editions. Subscriptions are
taken. According to Mrs. Brannon, there
is little faculty control but an advisor is
available if needed.
Last year Mrs. Brannon wrote one of
her notes on civil procedures. It was
entitled "Constitutionality of
Constructive Service of Process on
Missing Defendents." The other note,
dealing with criminal procedures, was on
the right to speedy trial.
In the street of the Lebanese capital of
Beirut, women stopped and screamed as
they heard the news. "My God! My
God!" one 16-year-old boy shrieked.
Shopkeeprs on Beirut's man street, Rue
Hamra, rang down their iron shutters.
Within minutes, the sound of rifle
shots rang out in Beirut-the traditional
sign of mourning in the Arab world.
Radio Cairo stopped all regular
programs and read quotations from the
Koran. Nasser was a devout moslem.
Nasser had been under treatment for
diabetes and circulatory ailment in the
Soviet Union earlier this year but his
death was a surprise.
