Out-of-state beer popular at UNC
by Dan Fesperman
Features Editor
It was not a very busy night at Ma Collins
South Main Produce. Two elderly men wandered
around the small brick and glass store just inside
Danville. Va., on Va. 86, while employee
Kenneth Dooley stood in the doorway of the back
room, slowly and silently pulling fryers out of an
ice-filled box and separating their parts.
' A man, apparently in his late 20s, wearing a .
dark gray business suit, walked into the store and
announced, "I'd like 10 cases of Stroh's Beer."
It was very likely a big deal for him. Stroh's is
not sold in North Carolina, and he had driven 50
miles from Burlington just to buy Stroh's. turn
around and drive home.
It was not at all a big deal for Dooley, who
finished separating a few more fryers before
dragging out ten cases of "America's only fire
brewed beer" from the back of the store.
"We must sell about 100 cases a week of it," he
said. "1 don't really see why, it doesn't taste any
different to me."
Whether the taste is worthy of the 100-mile
round trip from Burlington, or the 120-mile trip
from Chapel Hill is debatable, as are several other
beer-related questions some North Carolinians
have been asking off and on since Prohibition.
"Is '6.4' beer sold in North Carolina? in
Virginia? anywhere?"
"Is it illegal to transport more than a case of beer
per person across the state line?"
"And if it is and you get caught, will you be fined
outrageously by the State Alcoholic Beverage
Control Board?" . . . .
Any of these questions usually elicits an
abundance of answers, and no one seems to have a
completely accurate answer for all of the
questions.
As for the taste of Stroh's. many different
people will give you just as many opinions on the
matter. Stroh's is, next to Coors, perhaps the most
legendary domestic beer in North Carolina.
Both of these beers have attained most of their
mystique through their unavailability. The closest
place where Coors is sold is Washington, D.C.,
(and only there within the past year), and the
closest distributors for Stroh's are in Virginia.
Dan Hayes, a UNC sophomore from Bethesda,
Md. who has sampled over 75 brands of domestic
beer, has made the trip to Danville, as many North
Carolinians have, and says that every mile is worth
it. "Stroh's is light, but has a fuller taste than
Coors, and no after-taste. I'd say it's the best
domestic beer I've tasted."
Armand Gagnon, a sophomore from Rocky
Mount, was even more enthusiastic. "I'm not
gonna buy any other beer. 1 tasted it once when a
friend brought it down and I'm gonna stick with
it." -
Others aren't so enchanted. Warren Maupin,
enforcement director of the State ABC Board,
said, "I've had Coors and I've had Stroh's, and I
really don't see any difference between them and
most other beers. They all taste the same after two
or three anyway."
Maupin was unaware of the growing number of
North Carolinians willing to travel long distances
for out-of-state beers.
Even the management of the Stroh Brewing
Co., located in Detroit, is not aware of the beer's
magical spell in North Carolina.
"Is that right? Well, I'm glad to hear it," said
Jack Lahanne, vice president of Stroh's, when told
of the phenomenon.
Lahanne offered a bit of hope for those already
tiring of trips to Virginia. "We'll be down there(in
North Carolina) eventually. We're in 15 states
right now, and we're expanding at a measured
pace."
"I hope nobody gets in trouble for taking too
much over the state line, though." Lahanne's
worry is shared by most who make the beer runs of
Coors and Stroh's.
Such fears were fanned last summer when a
Charlotte Lum's. Restaurant was caught red
handed with its own truckload of Coors. The sale
of Coors in North Carolina is illegal, and rumors
were flying concerning possible fines of $100 per
confiscated can.
But the case was thrown out of court when no
criminal violation could be proven, and beer
runners across the state were still in the dark
concerning the possible consequences of their
hobby.
According to Maupin at the ABC office, their
fears are overblown. First of all, the limit for
interstate beer transport is not one case per
person, as some people think. It is 20 gallons per
vehicle, which comes out to eight cases and 2 1 cans
of 12 oz. beers.
Violation of the limit is a misdemeanor, and
Maupin said that even exaggerated violations
such as the one by the Charlotte Lum's would only
result in fines from $25 to $50 plus court costs.
"But, of course, we take away all of the beer and
pour it down the drain," Maupin added.
. In the-ease of marginal vibTatiohs'such astne ""
Burlington man's, Maupin said the punishment
"depends on the judge. In less liberal areas than
Chapel Hill and Charlotte you might get a harsher
punishment. But we wouldn't try to bust anyone
for just being a little over the limit. 1 would hope
that every man we have (the State ABC Board)

Hayes evidently did

would be reasonable."
Perhaps the most debated issue among N.C.
beer drinkers is the question of "6.4" beer. Most
in-staters, today and in the past, think the beer
they drink is 3.2 per cent alcohol, while their
friends from the north slap them on the back and
tell them about the "high octane stuff from across
the state line, supposedly 6.4 per cent alcohol.
While tracking down the truth of this matter,
one encounters countless variations and twists on
the theme of North Carolina's "weak beer."
Lahanne, from the Stroh's office in Detroit, said
that most beers are about 6 per cent alcohol, but
that some states limit the percentage to 3.2, and
North Carolina "could very well be one of those
states."
Dooley, back at "Ma Collins'", said flatly that
Virginia has "6.4" and North Carolina has"3.2."
Maupin, at the ABC office in Raleigh, settled
the question of North Carolina's percentage when
he said that state law limits N.C. beer to 5 percent
alcohol. But he still couldn't solve the ultimate
question about extra-punch beer from elsewhere.
"I don't know. I think Virginia has '6.4 beer, but
I'm really not sure."
lA-oall to 'theSchTltz brewery in"Winstbn-Saiem
produced only a reluctance to talk about the
matter.
"Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company."
"Yes. I'm from the Daily Tar Heel and I'd like to
know about the alcohol content of Schlitz brewed
for North Carolina and other states."
"Just a minute sir."
Pause... "Sir? I'm
sorry, you'll have to
write a letter to Mr.
Bach, that's our
policy."
"But I only have a
few questions. The
story isn't just about
Schlitz either."
"Just a minute sir."
Pause... "Sir? I'm
sorry, Mr. Bach says
you'll have to write
him a letter."
A spokesman for
Lamb , (beer) Dis
tributing Company
in Durham was not
much help either. "I
don't know. 1 think
it's stronger in other
states."
Finally, Anita
Isley, an employee of
Ace (beer) Distributing Co. in Durham,
apparently solved the big mystery.
"The state law limits beer to 5 per cent alcohol,"
she said. "Only military beer is 3.2 per cent, and it
is marked on the can. There isn't any 6.4 beer.
People in Virginia like to tell you that story, but
it's not true. We get a lot of our beer from Virginia,
Ohio and Florida all over but it's all the same."
Editor's note: For those of you who are too lazy
to drive to Danville for Stroh's or to Washington
for Coors. the Daiiy Tar Heel has conducted a
price survey of the standard beers at 14 stores in
Chapel Hill., which will appear Tuesday.

Plans calling for the addition of 900 seats to
Carmichael Auditorium have been approved, with
construction scheduled to begin June 5. Moyer
Smith, assistant athletic director of business, said
Friday.
"It was a critical situation with the number of
seats in Carmichael Auditorium," Smith said of
the decision to replace 6.617 permanent seats with
contour, aluminum, back-supported seats, similar
to those in the upper deck of the south side of
Kenan Stadium.
Carmichael holds 8,200 people and has faced a
demand for twice that number of tickets to most
home basketball games since its construction in
1965.
"There was a need for immediate relief for both
the students and members of the Educational
Foundation who contribute to make scholarships
available," Smith said.
The additional 900 seats will increase. the
capacity of Carmichael to a "legitimate 9,100,"
according to Smith, with a two-inch reduction of
space per seat accounting for the difference.
"It doesn't seem like that much but the result is
you pick up about two seats per row," Smith
explained. "We plan to give one-half to students
and the other half will be divided up between
faculty and contributors." The new scats will raise
the student total from 3,200 to 3,650.
The replacement of the permanent seats, which
was recommended by Smith and approved by a
joint committee of athletic, faculty, student and
general administration representatives in early
March, will cost $62,000. Financing will be
provided by that portion of the athletic budget
designated for "Planning Improvements and
Facility Repairs."
South Carolina Seating Co. was selected to
handle the construction after the committee
received bids from several different companies.
Work will begin in the first week of June after the
Olympic basketball trials, and will be completed
by August 20 before students return for the fall
semester.
"Some people have expressed concern about the
looks and the effect on recruiting," Smith said,
"but when you can give 900 more people a chance
to watch Carolina basketball that justifies the
decision.
!. "This is in keeping .with ..outf .philosophy Sat
serving the student interest. When you have 450
more students for 10 (home) games that makes a
big difference."
Smith added that "two years from now no one
will remember what type of seats we had. There
won't be that much difference in comfort other
than not having an arm rest. No one has
complained about the seats in Kenan Stadium and
they have to sit over there for about three
housc.in hot and cold weather. A basketball
game is only 60 per cent as long."
Asked about the possibility of enlarging
Carmichael to accomodate the increasing
demand for basketball tickets. Smith said. "We
have been exploring that for a long time but we
don't know structurally if it can be done or to what
extent. It's still in the thought stage."
A basketball facility in the Triangle Area with a
seating capacity of 20-25,000 has also been
discussed. The proposed coliseum would be a
modified version of the air-supported stadium
used by the National Football League's Detroit
Lions in Pomiac, Mich."lts really big now." said
Smith, who attended a facilities conference last
week sponsored by the National Collegiate
Athletic Association. "It's made great strides and
saves a whole lot of money. Conventional
construction is too prohibitive." Conventional
construction costs $20 million; an air-supported
structure cost $10 million.
But the biggest single need is for a new dressing
facility and weight room for the football team.
Smith said. "Our fieldhousc is the poorest facility
in the Atlantic Coast Conference." Construction
of a $3 million. 5.000-seat addition to Kenan
Stadium, which will include an equipment room,
locker rooms, a training room, a steam room and
football lecture rooms underneath the structure
will begin this summer.
i rustees OK plans
for women's facility
by Merton Vance
Staff Writer
The UNC Board of Trustees gave its approval
Friday to building plans for a $5.3 million
women's gym and intramural sports facility on the
site of the Tin Can.
The Tin Can will probably be moved to another
location.
Board Chairman Henry A. Foscue said that the
Trustees' action only approved the site of the
building. The Trustees rpproved interim plans for
the facility prepared by the Raleigh architectural
firm of Dodge and Beckwith. Foscue said that
when final plans for the building are completed,
the Board of Trustees will have to approve them
before construction plans could begin.
Previous estimates indicate that construction of
the new building could begin sometime in 1977.
The new building would be financed out of a
$43.2 million UNC bond package approved by
state voters' in a March 23 referendum vote.
"The Ztw&ie&ake noi sur wMFfoTJo with the
Tin Can,' which contains an indoor track and
basketball courts. They have considered moving
the Tin Can to the east end of Fetzer Field, but
they want to see cost estimates on such a plan
before they make a final decision concerning the
Tin Can's fate.
If moving the Tin Can is not feasible, the
Trustees may decide to construct a new building
on Fetzer Field to replace it.
The new gym facility which will be built on the
site of the Tin Can will be a 152.000 square-foot
structure.
The building is designed to ease severe
overcrowding. Woollen Gym was built in 1937-38
and was designed for 5,000 students. The existing
women's gym. built in 1942. is designed for only
200 women students. Today there are more than
18.000 students at UNC.
The 1974 N.C. General Assembly authorized
$165,000 in planning funds to design the building,
but because of economic conditions the General
Assembly was unable to budget enough money to
finance construction of the gym and other projects
on 13 of the 16 campuses in the University system.
Because money could not be budgeted for the
new buildings, the legislature voted to hold the
bond referendum.-, . , ... . .
The new gym will be connected to Woollen Gym
by a bridge that will pass over the driveway
between the two buildings. By connecting the
buildings with an overhead bridge, present
parking facilities in the area will be preserved.
Yoder notes privacy problems
by Chip Pearsall
Staff Writer
Washington Star columnist Ed Yoder said
Friday night that the course of publicity and
privacy in American life will be affected by the
standards adopted by journalists in the future.
"Never before have we demanded so much
publicity about the government and privacy for
the individual," Yoder said. "As a result, questions
of free press vs. fair trial, newsman's privilege and
national security have arisen, and since many of
these are questions of prudence, there are no fixed
answers."
Speaking at the initiation ceremony for the
Order of the Golden Fleece in Gerrard Hall, Yoder
said that neither privacy nor publicity is absolute.
He cited the secret drafting of the United States
Constitution as "a suggestion that secrecy is not
always unwholesome."
"Today our attitude is that any secret planning
by the executive without congressional or public
knowledge is out of order, dangerous and should
be exposed." Yoder said. The public's view of
publicity and privacy tends to be inconsistent, and
nobody feels this more than the journalist does, he
added.
"Journalism trades in the invasion of privacy.
We are a nation of reading and listening, if not

Golden Fleece induction ceremony.
peeping toms, and journalism satisfied this need."
The public's desire to know creates problems for
the journalist, however, he said.
"We see it as our duty to throw the spotlight on
dark corners of the government, but we also decry
the invasion of individual privacy by the
government." Yoder said, and this apparent
inconsistency raises uncomfortable ethical
questions for journalists.
He referred to Bob Woodward and Carl
Bernstein's 77k Final Days, an account of former
President Richard Nixon's last weeks in office, as
a case in which questions of invasion of privacy
must be raisedr
"777 Final Days is an extraordinary milestone
of journalism but it explores territory that has
never been explored before. We have no way of
knowing what is fact, fiction or a blend of both,
since the authors do not footnote their material.
Suppose the material is inaccurate?
"This book isn't history, it's gossip, and the
authority of gossip is the person who passes it
along. We have nobody's word but the authors'."
Yoder said. "There is the lurking sense of
intrusions of privacy."
He said that recent charges of predatory
journalism" the idea that good journalism
knows no privacy by authors such as Jane
Morris may be alarmist, but raise disturbing
questions nevertheless.
"The habit of respecting privacy in the future
will depend on the standards adopted by
journalism concerning itself." Yoder concluded.
"It is a complicated vision that we have only begun
to explore."
Yoder. a 1956 graduate of UNC. was co-editor
of the Daily Tar Heel and a member of the Order
of the Golden Fleece.
Finance committee sends budget for CGC approv
Includes $24,631 balance
by Mary Anne Rhyne
Staff Writer
The Campus Governing Council Finance
Committee has completed compiling its 1976-77
budget recommendations and will submit the
figures to the entire CGC for approval Thursday.
The recommendation offers $186,694 in
funding to 46 organizations. There is also a
recommended unappropriated balance of
$24,631. These suggestions come after a $l 1 1,000
cut from the budgets originally proposed by the
clubs. ,
"A majority of people got less money than they
requested this year," Barry Smith, chairman of the
committee, said.
"We were unable to fund a lot of worthy
organizations because of lack of funds. Smith
said.
The unappropriated balance was increased
from $9,883 to $24,63 1 to help cover expenses the
organizations incur and cannot meet during the
year.
Smith said there were requests made in 1975-76
for more money than was available. The increased
balance was set aside to alleviate this problem in
the future.
Many organizations will receive less money
than they did last year. Student Government
received $45,154 in 1975-76 and is recommended
to receive $4 1 .025 this year. Summer programs got
$6,300 last year and may get $2,352 in 1976-77.
Organizations funded jointly by Student
Government and the University got $29,743 last
year and are recommended to receive $17,519;
organizations jointly sponsored by Student
Government and the Athletic Department got
$4,983 and are recommended to receive $3,017;
semi-independent organizations got $79,087 last
year and may get $59,410 this year.
Only the media received an increase from
$47,822 to $63,371.
Recommendations made to Student
Government were: Executive Branch. $29,185
(requested $30,038); Legislative Branch, $1,145
($1,155), Judicial Branch, $2,385 ($2,755);
Resident University Grant and Loan Foundation,
$7,000 (14.254); Elections Board, $660 ($910);
Student Transportation Commission, $150
($150); Speaker's Commission, $0 ($3,000); and
Central Purchasing and Disbursing. $500 ($500).
Organizations sponsored jointly by Student
Government and athletics are: Sports Club
Council, $537 (requested $902); Carolina Godiva
Track Club, $255 ($3 10); Crew Club, $340 ($670);
Football Club $498. ($770); Ice Hockey Club.
$305 ($650); Outing Club, $230 ($400); Sailing
Club. $190 ($290); Scuba Club, $162 ($314); Surf
