Survey lists area beer prices
by Dan Fesperman
If you are going to get drunk, you might as well
da it at the least possible cost. For those of you
who prefer to intoxicate yourself with beer, the
Daily Tar JJeel has conducted a survey of beer
prices m 14 Chapel HiH stores.
The beers surveyed were the premium brand
beers (Budweiser. Schlitz and Miller), the
popular-priced beers (Old Milwauee. Pabst Blue
Ribbon and Falstaff) and Michelob.
Of the stores checked, five are within walking
distance of campus Fowler's Food Store. Fast
Fare (formerly Quick Pik). Ken's Quickie Mart,
the Campus Party Store and the Quick Food
Mart. Of these. Fowler's has the best prices, and is
also open the latest (until midnight). At Fowler's,
the premium brand beers are 51.83 and the
popular-priced beers are SI. 75 (except Falstaff.
which is SI. 57).

UNC Assistant Vice-Chancellor for Business
John L. Temple ordered changes Monday at a
University-owned waste disposal site after
neighbors complaints about the site appeared in a
Chapel Hill Newspaper story Sunday.
Meanwhile the neighbors, residents of Glen
Heights, were present last night when the Board of
Aldermen examined possibilities for use of part of
the site which it leases from UNC.
Temple said he ordered University maintenance
personnel to dump fly ash from University Service
Plants farther from an area of the site adjacent to
houses on Windsor Circle in Glen Heights.
Formerly 1 5 loads, about 3 tons each, have been
dumped weekly on the 5 to 6 acres of the site,
w hich is located near Horace Williams Airport on
Airport Road and is separated from the Windsor
Circle backyards by a 200-foot stand of trees.
Temple also directed workers to bury the ash in
trenches rather than dumping it and covering it
. with dirt.
Residents of the neighborhood had complained
of an incident about a year ago when a stiff wind
carried fly ash into their open windows. They also
objected to the clcarcutting of trees on the site and
its unpleasant appearance.
Temple said it was the responsibility of his office
to prevent ash from blowing off the site. But he
said. "It's no', a case of our being careless; it was a
case of it being unusually dry and there being a lot
of wind at the same time."
The residents had said the clearcutting was
progressing rapidly toward their backyards until
they visited Temple and he agreed to the 200-foot
buffer zone. .They also said cutting continued
advancing until this decree reached the loggers.
"I can see the stripped area from my window,"
Mrs. Allen C. Smith III said Monday.
The clearcutting was done on the advice of a
forestry consultant who said the trees were mature
and if left would die from beetles," Temple said.
Also on the consultant's recommendation, the
University planned to leave only a 50-foot wooded
area on the edge of its land bordering the yards
until the residents complained.
Most of the area has been replanted in pines, he
Allen S. Waters, director of operations and
engineering for UNC, said Monday that a state
permit to bury toxic chemicals from UNC labs is
the only permit required for operating the site.
"We're not operating it as a dump or a sanitary
landfill,' he said.
No town permits have been required. Chapel

The other quick-service stores' prices fall
between Fowler's and Fast Fare's, but they all
have advantages. The Campus Party Store is the
closest beer outlet to the North Campus, while
Ken's Quickie Mart is a quick hop from Granville
Towers. The Quick Food Mart, somewhat out of
the way on Rosemary Street next to PTA, runs
occasional specials (such as last week's on Tuborg

premium brands and $1.67 or $1.68 for the

Monday that "it is not clear whether the town can
regulate the use of state property."
If the site should be judged to fall under town
jurisdiction. Berger said, probably at least one
special use permit would be required.
Glen Heights residents are also apprehensive
about what the town will do with 34 acres of the
site it has leased from the University, possibly for
location of any or all of an animal shelter, public
works and recycling facilities and a bus garage.
Town officials have considered moving these
facilities from the present public works area on
Plant Road and converting that site into a
Last night Town Planning Director Michael
Jennings presented the Board of Aldermen with a
Planning Board recommendation that the Airport
Road site not be used lor an animal shelter or
recycling facilities and that use of the site be
tailored to minimize impact on the Glen Heights
Instead of transferring public works facilities to
convert the Plant Road area for recreation. Smith
said, it would seem more sensible to simply
establish a recreation area on Airport Road,
which she thinks already suits that purpose.

RALEIGH - Wake County Superior Court
Judge Clarence W. Hall refused Monday to
revoke a stay order prohibiting the N.C.
Veterinary Medical Board from exercising any
authority over veterinarian Louis L. Vine.
Hall allowed Vine's stay order to stand until the
record of the veterinary board's January hearing is
reviewed by the court.
As a result of the January hearing, the
veterinary board reprimanded Vine for
organizational deficiencies at the Vine Veterinary
Hospital on E. Franklin Street, and directed him
to make specific changes in the operating
The hearing Monday was petitioned by
veterinary board attorney, R. Mayne Albright,
who asked Hall to abolish Vine's stay order
because "there is nothing to stay. We merely gave
him a warning that those conditions ought to be
improved. We didn't stop his operation."

This pile of ashes near the Glen Heights residential section drew complaints from
area home-owners when wind blew the ashes into their yards and houses. Residents
also objected to clearcutting of trees around the dump site.
Typically, in cases involving a doctor's license
revocation by a medical review board, a stay order
is petitioned on that revocation, allowing a
doctor's practice to continue until the board's
proceedings are reviewed in court.
"But since nothing is happening to Vine that
hasn't already happened to him - namely he got
the reprimand I saw nothing to stay." Albright
said after the hearing.
"Therefore. I said let's do away with the stay
order and let the judge decide, at that time, just
what the judge decided here; that Vine was entitled
to a hearing on the board's full order." he said.
North Carolina general statute holds that a
licensed practitioner, "who is aggrieved by an
adverse decision of a board issued after hearing,
may obtain a review of the decision." and that"thc
aggrieved person may apply to the reviewing court
for an order staying the operation of the board
decision pending the outcome of the review.
Albright argued that Vine was not aggrieved by
the board's reprimand and order to improve
operating procedures at his hospital, and thus
A proposal calling for the issuance of grades
with plusses and minuses and the shortening of the
period in which courses may be dropped will be
presented to the Faculty Council April 23. Dean of
Student Affairs James Gaskin said Monday.
If the proposal, prepared by the Special
Committee on the Grading System, is passed by
the Faculty Council, professors would have the
option of giving students plus and minus grades
for a three year trial period beginning next fall.
Gaskin, chairman of the committee, said.
But students' averages would not be affected by
the plusses and minuses. Gaskin said. A student
receiving a B-pIus would get three quality points,
as would one receiving a B-minus. However, the
pluses and minuses would be recorded on the
The period in which students could drop
courses would be shortened to four weeks, as
compared to the present policy of allowing courses
to be dropped until the twelfth week of classes.
Student Government Academic Affairs
Director Carol Conrad said Student Government
will be distributing surveys to students at random
Wednesday to determine student support for these
"We're not for or against the- proposals."
Conrad said. We just want to show the faculty the
facts and figures of how the students feel."
However, if the students surveyed are aeainst
the proposals, Conrad said Student Government
would try to take some action for the students.
Lisa Bradley, one of the three student members
of the committee, explained that the proposed
grading system would be more reflective of a
student's work in class. The proposal is similar to a
grading system advocated by history professor
James Leutze last fall that would have assigned
different quality points to plus and minus grades.
Bradley said shortening the course dropping
period would- be fairer to all studentst She noted .
that many students decide to drop a course after
the mid-term examination. The D-and F-students
drop the course, but the professor must create D
and F-students from those remaining to complete
the bell curve, she said.
Nick Herman, also a student representative on
the committee, explained that the four week
period was arbitrarily decided on because by then
the teacher had usually given the first quir..
Gaskin noted that many students are closed out
of courses in the fall, but by the end of the drop
period 20 seats in that class might be empty.
He also said that after the three-year trial
period, the Faculty Council may decide to attach
quality points to the plus and minus grades, but
should not be entitled to a stay order.
But Vine attorney Blackwell M. Brogden
argued that "when the board reprimands and tells
Dr. Vine to do certain things, he is an aggrieved
Brogden petitioned the stay order and a court
review of the board's hearing last month.
Albright said at the hearing Monday, however,
that "I don't find any petition for a review."
He apparently did not consider Vine's right to a
review of the board's decision, since he thought
Vine was not "aggrieved" by it.
Albright said last week that Monday's hearing
would bring an end to the stay order by either
allowing or disallowing the board's decision to
Now it appears a settlement will only come at
some unspecified future date. Albright has until
April 23 to file the record of the veterinary board's
hearing in court.
He said Monday that he would file the record
"within the next couple of days." and that the
review hearing would follow shortly.

State students stage
all-day strike against
stricter course policy
by Merton Vance
N.C. State University students are planning an
all-day strike today to protest faculty plans to
revise the school's policy for dropping courses.
Controversy over the large number of students
dropping classes at NCSU led to the strike and has
prompted UNC President William C. Friday to
call for an inquiry to see if the problem exists on
other UNC system campuses.
A large number of students at NCSU are not
taking enough classes to graduate within four
years, so NCSU's Faculty Senate voted to reform
the school's policy for dropping classes. Tfiis
action has drawn protests from students.
Since 1973. NCSU students have been able to
drop a course up until the ninth week of the
sixteen-week semester without penalty to their
records. The Faculty Senate decided to shorten
the drop period to two weeks and require that
students take a minimum course load of twelve
hours per semester.
Students balked at the recommendations. They
are circulating a petition protesting the
Faculty Senate's actions, and the school's student
government called for today's strike. There will
also be a student rally at noon.
Lu Anne Rogers, president of the Student
Senate and student body president-elect at NCSU.
said Sunday that most students oppose the two
week drop period but disagree on how to go about
challenging the Faculty Senate's actions.
"A lot of people don't think a strike is necessary,
but at this point in time the strike is still on." she
NCSU began allowing students to drop classes
up until the ninth week of the semester in the fall of
1973. That fall, students dropped more than twice
as many courses as they did the previous year. By
last fall, students were dropping 10 per cent of all
the courses for which they had registered.
The Faculty Senate decided to take action last
semester when less than half of NCSU's student
body were taking enough courses to graduate
within four years.
Friday said a preliminary inquiry shows that
such a problem with course dropping does not
exist at UNC-Chapel Hill. He said that so far there
is no indication that the problem exists at other
schools in the 16-campus University system.
UNC-CH Provost J. Charles Morrow said
UNCs policy for dropping courses is different
from N.C. State's. At UNC a student must have
permission from his dean or general college
advisor before he can drop a course.
"The dean is empowered to drop a student at
any time, but deans are reluctant to drop students
near the end of the semester." he said.
A student can make a routine withdrawal from
a course up until ten days before the end of the
semester. After this cut-off date a student can drop
a course, but only under extraordinary
circumstances, such as a medical problem or
Frederick W. Vogler, an adv isor in the College
of Arts and Sciences, said that students are also
required to take a minimum 12-hour course load,
with exceptions under extraordinary
When contacted by telephone Monday
afternoon. Vogler said there was a line of students
in the hall outside his office asking permission to
drop courses. "They all missed the deadline last
week for one reason or another." Vogler said. He
said that such late requests for dropping a course
arc treated on au individual basis.
At N.C. State, a student may drop a course up
until the ninth week of the semester without
penalty. After that, a student cannot drop a course
unless there are some extraordinary
NCSU Provost Nash Winstead said that the
faculty council's recommendation on changing
surveys, both different, indicated that students
and professors define grade inflation ditlcrcntlv.
I n a faculty member, grade inflation is defined
as a rising grade unaccompanied by a rising level
of achievement. A student, however, defines
grades in terms ol economics. Gaskin said. " I he

Facultv members feel grade inflation does exist,
according to the results of the committee's survey.
Gaskin said. But students do not think grade
inflation exists, or if it docs, it does not hurt them,
Also contained in the proposal are
recommendations that temporary grades such as
NG (no grade) and NR (no report) not be counted

SAN FRANCISCO (LTD -Patricia Hearst
was given the maximum sentence of 35 years in
prison for bank robbery Monday, but the
sentencing judge said he would reduce the term
after she undergoes further psychiatric study.
U.S. District Judge Oliver J. Carter imposed
the sentence less than two years after the
newspaper heiress and four members of the
Symbionese Liberation Army held up the Sunset
branch of Hibernia Bank in San Francisco and
escaped with S 10.690, wounding two bystanders
as they fled.
The 22-year-old defendant made a bid for
probation which was supported by a number of
letters w ritten by friends w ho said that because she
was a kidnap victim she was not a willing bank
Carter said he could' not agree with this
judgement because "it was the very issue about
which the jury very strongly debated and was
presented evidence and argument by both sides."
He said he believed the jury had reached its
decision with substantial evidence.
Miss Hearst was found guilty March 20 by a
jury of seven women and fiv e men. The other four
SLA members died in a fire and shootout with
police in Los Angeles a month after the robbery.
Miss Hearst twitched nervousiv during the hail
hour court session but listened calmly and w ithout
expression as Carter imposed the sentence, then
ordered her to undergo 90 days of psychiatric
examination requested by her attorneys because
of the unusual nature of the case.
Randolph and Catherine Hearst, her parents,
were seated behind her as they had been
throughout the trial. They. too. remained
composed when the sentence was announced.
When the court was adjourned. Miss Hearst's
chief attorney. F. Lee Bailey, embraced her
In order to permit the psychiatric examination.
Carter was required by law to impose the
maximum sentence - 25 years on the bank
robbery charge and an additional 10 years for
using a firearm to commit a felony.
"It is my intention to later modify and not
cumulate or compound the two counts." Carter
told a packed and locked courtroom. He said the
maximum sentence he would impose would be 25
years and further reductions would depend on the
outcome of the psychiatric study.
Carter also supported the jury's guilty verdict,
reached after 13 hours of deliberation.
"The offense of which she was found guilty is
most serious and one that can be classified as both
brutal and violent." Carter said. "The jury has
determined the nature of the participation of the
defendant and 1 see no reason to set the verdict
In Washington, a Justice Department
spokesman said Miss Hearst would be moved to a
federal facility, as yet unnamed, within 24 hours.
The only institutions with facilities for female
psychiatric treatment are in San Diego and
Washington. D. C.
Miss Hearst is scheduled to appear in court in
Los Angeles Wednesday to enter a plea to a variety
of state charges, including kidnapping, assault and
robbery. n another case. It was not known
whether she would appear in view of the order for
