Vol. 81, No. 137
Chapel Hill. North Carolina, Friday. April 13, 1973
After a brief flurry of debate, the State
House of Representatives Thursday gave
final approval to a bill setting up a
statewide referendum on
House members approved the measure
60-41, despite warnings from some
legislators that approval would open the
door to more alcohol consumption in
Although the measure gained approval
with relative ease in the House, it faces a
tough test in the Senate. The powerful
Christian Action League agreed not to
lobby against the bill in the House, but,
according to United Press International,
Rep. Robert Beard, R-Catawba, said
Thursday that the league was free to
lobby on the issue in its Senate test.
The Rev. Coy Privette of Kannapolis,
president of the league, has said he thinks
he has the votes in the Senate to defeat
any liquor-by-the-drink proposal.
The bill as it now stands calls for a
referendum in November on whether
counties which now allow the sale of
alcoholic beverages should be permitted
to legalize the sale of mixed drinks. It
also stipulates that any restaurants which
receive a permit to sell mixed drinks must
give up its brownbagging permit. Rep.
Larry Cobb, R-Mecklenburg,
unsuccessfully attempted to amend the
bill Thursday to eliminate brownbagging
altogether in any county where mixed
drinks could be sold.
Response to med school charges
by William March
William Dees, chairman of the UNC
Board of Governors, and Christopher
Fordham, dean of the UNC School of
Medicine, have responded to N.C.
Attorney General Robert Morgan's
charges of "unfairness" and unconcern
for this state's health care needs in
dealing with the East Carolina University
med school controversy.
rural health care
by Marty Shore
Expressing concern for rural medical
care, Gov. James Holshouser came before
a joint session of the General Assembly
Thursday to ask for the development of a
statewide rural health care service.
"Far too many citizens, particularly in
rural areas, are not able to get the medical
care they need simply because it is not
available to them within reasonable
distance," Holshouser said.
The problem is not a lack of doctors,
but the inadequate distribution of
qualified doctors in the state.
In some counties, he said, there are as
many as 8,351 patients per doctor. In
Clay County. 5,108 people rely on one
65-year-old doctor, Holshouser said.
The problem is not getting any better,
according to Holshouser. As the already
limited number of rural doctors retire,
replacements are not available.
In order to solve this problem, the
state needs to establish a new office in
the State Human Resources Department,
Holshouser told the legislators.
The purpose of the office would be to
expand the existing rural primary health
care clinics and the Area Health
Education Centers (AHEC).
As the rural clinics now exist, trained
family nurse practitioners do much of the
clinic work under the supervision of
physicians and hospitals in nearby towns.
"Through these centers." Holshouser
said, "the means also can be worked out
so that the people can get to a doctor
quickly and easily when an emergency or
serious problem arises."
Holshouser would like to see the
Human Resources Department vtablish a
network of primary medical caie clinics
across the state.
AHEC could be expanded from the
five currently operating around the state.

the Board of Governors had shown

Under a five-year, $8.5 million federal
contract, an Area Health Education
System is already being developed
throughout the state.
Holshouser explained that both the
health system and the rural health clinics
are funded by the federal government on
an experimental basis only. With state
help, he said, the programs can be
expanded to permanent statewide

Holshouser suggested that if additional
funds were granted, they could be used to

controversy over the ECU medical school.
Holshouser said. "I do not want this

Morgan's charges were "completely"
unjust and incorrect," and many of the
figures and statistics Morgan used in
describing the expansion of the UNC med
school were incorrect, Dees said.
Fordham also stated that statistics in
Morgan's speech were "substantially
different from my figures," and added
that he would like to talk with Morgan
"to try to show him our perspectives on
what is being done to meet the state's
health care needs" and to resolve the
differences in factual assertions.
UNC President William Friday, also
implicated in Morgan's charges of bad
faith in dealing with ECU, had no
comment on the speech.
ECU's request for expansion was
tabled by a committee of the board until
a consulting team of medical experts can
evaluate the need for a new four-year
med school in the UNC system. Morgan
charged the committee with prejudice.
"It would have made no sense to
expand the ECU program to two years
without a commitment to eventually
expand it to a full four-year
degree-granting program," Dees said.
"Before we make this annual
multi-million dollar commitment for the
North Carolina taxpayers, we should be
as certain as possible that's what we
Morgan also objected to the
composition of the consulting team set
up by the board. "We chose out-of-state
people because any North Carolina
experts would probably be subject to
political pressure or bias," said Dees.

The increase would also have been

"We didn't come here to confront Jim
Holshouser," Indian leader Robert Garvie
said Thursday. "That has been a
misconception of the local press,
television and radio."
Garvie, an Oglala Sioux Indian who
lives a few miles from Wounded Knee,
S.D., made these and other remarks
following a 12 noon rally in the Pit.
American Indian Movement (AIM)
member Garvie has been instrumental in
helping North Carolina's Tuscarora
Indians plan and execute their present
actions in Raleigh.
The Tuscaroras plan a day-long rally
today, including a 1 p.m. march on the
capitol, airing a list of 48 grievances and
trying to convince Gov. Holshouser to
convene the North Carolina Commission
on Indian Affairs.
Last week, Holshouser refused a
request by the Tuscaroras to call the
commission into session.
; If the Tuscaroras do not succeed in
getting the Indian Affairs Commission to
convene, Garvie said they plan to try to
talk directly to commission member H.R.
Richardson, a Halawa Indian chief.
Today's march will organize on the
Shaw University campus and continue
from there to the capitol. The Tuscaroras
School in Tennessee."
Fordham denied charges that the UNC
med school had misused funds designed
to extend its training programs into the
rural areas of the state, and listed eastern
North Carolina hospitals in which these
programs functioned. In reply to charges
that the previous expansion of the school
and the proposed further expansion are
expensive and marginally useful
Fordham said, "We have almost doubled
our admissions within the time span of
one generation of students, from 72 to
"The coming 20-student increase in
class size at UNC will necessitate new
facilities," Dees said.
Fordham's response came at the UNC
Faculty Club meeting after Morgan
spoke. His tone was conciliatory.
"Regional bickering is divisive and
polarizing," he said. "I'd prefer not to
cause any more divisiveness by public
Dr. Thomas Kinney, director of
medical education at Duke, said in
response to Morgan's charges against the
"uncaring" attitude of Duke and
Bowman Gray med schools, "If the
people of North Carolina still believe that
after all Duke has done for this state,
there's nothing I can say."
Meanwhile, N.C. Rep. Gerald Arnold,
D-Harnett County, planned to introduce
a resolution Thursday to establish a
legislative commission to study the issue,
saying "Everybody and his brother has
studied this except the legislature."
Morgan's speech, he said, was great. "It
took a lot of guts," he added.
Dees said he is confident that the
legislature will leave the matter up to the .
Board of Governors.
The student body approved a similar
referendum last year, but it was rejected
by the administration.
"We are just asking you for a chance to
go back to the Board of Governors," Bob
Beason. a third-year law student and a
spokesman for PIRG, told the council.
"There's never been any organization
on this campus that received the support
PIRG got last year," he said.
CGC" member Bob Singer asked Beason
why an increase in funds was necessary
and why PJRG could not be funded
voluntarily. Beason said that voluntary
funding would be impossible because a
campaign would have to be mounted each
year to get contributions.
"We feel the students have expressed
plan to conduct speeches and rallies until
The list of grievances was not available
for printing Thursday, but Garvie
explained what he considers to be two of
the most important of those demands.
.The first demand involves the dismissal
of the present Indian Affairs Commission.
Garvie said the people, "grass roots
people," should be able to place
representatives of their own choosing to
sit on the commission, "at which time
they would probably receive all
considerations that are set forth pursuant
to General Statutes 71-14 and 71-15,
which are mandatory and must be
complied with whenever any group of
Indians within the state of North Carolina
request the convening of the
General Statutes 71-14 and 71-15 set
up and define the role and regulation of
the Indian Affairs Commission.
Garvie said that the present Indian
Affairs Commission is "a commission
selected by the white political system
which doesn't represent us."
The second demand concerns the
constitutionality of the Lumbee Bills of
1953 and 1956. Garvie claims that Article
1, Section 8, of the U.S. Constitution,
gives only Congress the right ro make
treaties with foreign governments and
with Indians, and that state governments
do not have that power. Garvie claims
that the Lumbee Bills are
Garvie also said that the Lumbee Bill
has and is depriving the Tuscarora Indians
of Robeson County, N.C, of all the rights
and privileges granted to all other Indian
tribes in the United States.
Garvie said that prior to the general
elections last November, Holshouser met
with him and D.J. Banks, a leading
spokesman for the AIM, in a stable in
Pembroke. At that time Garvie said
Holshouser committed himself to see that
the Indian people of Robeson County
were given an honest and fair
consideration of any grievances or
matters that concerned the Indians:
Garvie said so far Holshouser has failed
in this respect by rejecting the request to
convene the Indian Affairs Commission.
