Cutbacks causing inconveniences
Local merchants are generally pleased with Gov. Hunt's
recommendation to curtail store hours to a 52-hour work week. .
Apparently this cutback has not been as inconvenient as
originally anticipated. Fowler's has kept its usual hours,

Hunt did order, that store temperatures be lowered to 62
degrees during operating hours, and to 55 degrees at other
by David Stacks
Merchants in Chapel Hill seem to be
pleased with Gov. James B. Hunt's
orders curtailing the heating of retail
businesses to 48 hours per week and
turning the thermostats back to 62
degrees during operating hours and 55
or lower at other times.
Hunt's order does not specify how
many hours stores are to be open each
w eek, but it is designed to limit retailers
to a 54-hour workweek.
"All retail businesses except those
essential to public health, safety and
welfare are covered under the
governor's order." Gary Pearce. Hunt's
presss secretary, said Tuesday.
A spokesperson for the Chapel Hill
Chamber of Commerce said Chapel Hill
merchants generally are pleased with the
governor's order because it is more
enforceable than the guidelines ftunt
issued two weeks ago requesting
retailers to cut back to a 48-hour week.
Unlike the guidelines of two weeks
ago. Hunt's new rules do not restrict the
numbers of hours stores are open, only
the number of hours stores are heated.
"Two weeks ago. most retail stores
had decided to go along with the
governor's request." Joe Augustine.
Chamber of Commerce executive
"The problem came up when a few
stores opened more than 48 hours. Then
retailers, worried about losing business
to their competitors who had opened
beyond the 48 hours, began to exceed
the limit themselves." Augustine said.
He said that since the governor's
directives are now mandatory, most
store managers are not as concerned
with the hours their competitors are
Many retailers are having problems
scheduling employees working hours to
fit the new regulations without laying
off workers. Some businesses are giving
employees more days off while others
are reducing the number of hours each
employee works per week.
"We do not wish to curtail our
employees hours, but we obviously,
have to since most of our stores have
been open 72 hours per week." M.R.
Rash, president of Ivey's of Carolina.
"We are taking a series of differing
approaches like cutting back employees'
hours or giving more time off," Rash
Hunt's order also said temperatures
must be no higher than 62 degrees
during retailers' 48 hours of operation
and no more than 55 degrees outside the
A spokesperson for University Mall
said it is not practical for the mall to turn
the heat up and down throughout the
week because of the manpower involved
in doing so.
"We can't set the thermostats at 62 in
the day and then reset them at 55 again
at night." Kay Hengeveld, University
Mall manager, said Tuesday.
"If we did, we would have people
running up and down ladders all day,"
H engeveld also complained about the
confusion involved in going from
guidelines to mandatory controls.
"It's very difficult to let the public
know one set of hours and then have to
change it two weeks later," she said.

by a precise, scientific process, according to Peggy (iibbs. assistant
to the director for housing contracts.
Gibbs said that 56 per cent ol eligible upperclassmen currently in
University housing will be able to return. Most students, however,
are interested in how many students will be allowed back in their
The individual dorm percentages are determined by adding up
the eligible returning residents in each dorm and then dividing that
number by the total available spaces in the dorm.
Those eligible to return include all residents except graduating
seniors. Spaces must be reserved for the number of freshmen that

The Chapel Hill Board of Aldermen
approved Monday a special use permit
for Alpha Chi Omega sorority to build a
house at 215 East Rosemary St.
The 3 1 -resident house will be located in
the Historic District. Concern was shown
that the Huskey House now located on
the site might be destroyed.
The national council for the sorority
has offered to give the Huskey House to
the Chapel Hill Preservation Society for
removal to another site.
In other action, the board
recommended immediate funding for the
design of bike paths. The $36,000 for the
project was approved by the town in the
Nov. 2 bond referendum.
The board officially granted a
franchise to the Orange Water and Sewer
Authority (OW ASA) in the meeting also.
This technicality was almost the last
detail in the selling of Southern Orange
County water and sewer facilities by the
University, Chapel Hill and Carrboro.
OWASA officials went to Charlotte
Tuesday to sign the final documents. The
Carrboro Board of Aldermen approved
the franchise that same day.
The authority will slightly increase
rates July I.

According to former Harvard
professor and 1960s activist Timothy
Leary, increased intelligence is just one
of the benefits that will result from an
alternative to life on earth space
Speaking to a crowd of
approximately 400 persons at Memorial
Hall Monday, Leary explained that
man is currently being biologically,
economically and ecologically forced
off the planet. He said that one of man's
alternatives is space migration, a theory
first proposed in the book The High
Frontier by Princeton physicist Gerard
He said that man would take a new
perspective on life when living in a space
settlement. This new perspective, Leary
said, would lead to increased
"With our current-technology, it is
possible to build a space settlement
which sells four to five acres of land to
people at a cheaper cost than land in a
large metropolitan suburb," Leary said.
He added that these space settlements
could accommodate between 1,000 to
Leary said that the construction of
these space settlements could benefit
man economically. "For every $1
million spent on these settlements, there
would be a return of $23 million in two
Leary said that the space-migration
program would be voluntary, as no one
would be forced to live at a space
settlement. , He added that those
interested persons would be able to
choose the kind of settlement they
preferred to live in.
"If someone wants to live in a space
settlement of bisexual vegetarians he
can, or he can live with a group of
National Rifle Association members in
He said that the space migration
movement would have to be a grass
roots movement, as it could not be
initiated in Washington. "Washington is
a creepy town filled with creepy people."
Leary also discussed the possibility of
man's being immortal while on space
settlements. He said that there is
currently a great deal of research into
DN A rebuilding, which could inevitably
lead to immortality.
During the first hour of his two-hour
speech, Leary discussed change,
claiming that although the 1960s
produced a great deal of change,
Americans must not become

He later said that, when he was a
professor at Harvard, a study revealed
that 75 per cent of the Harvard student
body smoked marijuana. "After hearing

years," he said.

No more Virginia trips:
you can go to Durham
to buy Stroh's beer
Dr. Timothy Leary

Anyone who continues making beer
runs into Virginia for Stroh's is going to
be wasting time and gasoline.
UNC's favorite suds are now
available a mere six miles away in
Durham. Yes. the Bull City now boasts
two stores that are legitimately and very
successfully selling Stroh's beer.
Jim's Party Store on Hillsborough
Road and the Lakewood Party Store on
Chapel Hill Road have been selling the
beer over a month now, and both
owners report large sales.
"I'm sold out, but I'm getting some
today," said Malcolm Pinkston, the
owner of the Lakewood Party Store.
"Right now we're selling out every
Pinkston said his store is selling more
Stroh's than any other major brand.
At Jim's Party Store, owner James
Keith said Stroh's has been selling as
well as Schlitz and Budweiser, but
"We're not making any money on it."
Keith said he doesn't want to make
customers pay for the expense of getting
the beer so he is operating on a break
"It sells well," Keith said, but
explained that until more distributors
carry it and the beer becomes easier for
retailers to buy, he will be operating on a
"I just thought it would create a good
business relation with prospective
customers," Keith explained.
Now, only one state distributor (in
Elizabeth City) carries Stroh's since the
state ABC board approved sales in this
state last year. Both Keith and Pinkston
make weekly visits to the distributor,
and both predict more-widespread sales
of Stroh's in North Carolina when more
distributors begin to sell it.
Rumors now exist in beer-selling
circles that Greensboro and Charlotte
may soon have distributors selling
Stroh's if the Stroh's Brewery Company
can meet the demand.
"The people who buy Stroh's are sort
of in a class by themselves," explained
Keith. "I'd say that about 50 per cent of
the people are college students and
about 50 per cent are college age, but not
"It's a fine beer," added Pinkston, "It
has a good taste and is comparable to
any other premium beer." Pinkston
agreed that most Stroh's drinkers are
Even though a full-scale price war
hasn't had time to begin in North
Carolina, Pinkston and Keith already
are playing the Bull City Stroh's market
to the hilt.
Pinkston said a . case will cost $7.40,
and Keith said interested students must
visit his store to find out his prices
