Greeks respond to comment
M oss remark self-effacing humor'
By MICHAEL WADE
A remark made by Student Body
President Bill Moss during an Orange Water
and Sewer Authority (OWASA) press
conference Sept. 9 about the mentality of
UNC fraternity members was "an offhand
comment meant as self-effacing humor,"
Moss said Wednesday.
Moss' remark was made while he was
explaining his desire to expand the interests
of Greeks in conserving water. The remark
was quoted in a Daily Tar Heel story
published Tuesday about fraternity water
The presidents of the Interfraternity
Council (1FC) and the Panhellenic Council
said they felt most Creeks did not take the
quote seriously. IFC President Todd Baker
said he has received some negative reaction
to the remark.
"I have spoken with Bill about the quote,"
Baker said. "There was a misunderstanding
and things have been cleared up now."
Baker said the IFC is cooperating fully
with both Student Government and the town
of Chapel Hill on water conservation.
Julie Blazer, Panhellenic Council
president, said she believes the remark was
made in jest. "Knowing Bill personally, and
knowing he's a Greek. 1 just laughed at it. I
didn't take it at all seriously." she said. Blazer
said Moss called her to apologize for any
misunderstanding the remark may have
"Nobody from any of the sororities has
expressed any negative reaction at all," she
Moss said at the OWASA meeting, "A lot
of them (Greeks) don't know where the
student union is this shows the mentality
of some of the Greeks."
"I think it's a real narrow view," said Steve
Walker, president of Beta Theta Pi
fraternity. "1 like the rebuttal someone wrote
in," he said, referring to a letter to the editor
that appeared in the paper Wednesday. "I
don't think he really meant much by it.
"It's just an unfortunate thingtosay, and 1
think he knows better," said Stan Atwell.
Delta Tau Delta president.
Moss said he met Tuesday afternoon with
the IFC Executive Committee. "We talked
about the water situation and steps the
fraternities could take to help with the crisis.
I assured them I did not mean at any time or
in any way to impinge upon the fraternity
and sorority lifestyle.
"We (Moss and Baker), along with the
president of the Panhellenic Council ( Blazer)
decided that perhaps a joint letter from the
three of us to the editor of the Daily Tar Heel
would explain that the comment was not
meant to devalue the fraternities and
sororities, and demonstrate that there are
more important things to be considered than
an unfortunate and offhand comment by one
"1 am a member of a fraternity. 1 have a
large number of friends all over campus who
are members of fraternities, and the possible
implication that sororities and fraternities
are not involved in campus activities is
clearly not true," Moss said.
"Obviously, it was an offhand comment
which was meant as self-effacing humor to
stress an important point in the discussion
withOWASA about what students aredoing
to conserve water."

Lance overdrafts possibly illegal
WASHINGTON (UP1) - Bert Lance

overdrafts on his wife's account in his
unsuccessful 1974 campaign for governor of
Georgia, a federal bank regulator testified

Currency, gave his assessment to the Senate

The committee, scheduled to hear from
Lance Thursday, also questioned the former
U.S. Attorney in Atlanta who dismissed a
case against Lance's Calhoun, da., bank one
day after talking to Lance's lawyer last year.
U.S. attorney John Stokes said he closed
the case Dec. 2 a day before Lance was
nominated budget director because it had
been dormant for seven months and there
were no grounds for prosecution.
"If we had a good case, we had no choice
but to prosecute. But we had no right to
destroy a man by fiddling around... if you
haven't got the goods," Stokes said.
Three attorneys who worked for Stokes
when the case was closed disagreed. They
testified that a thorough review might have
uncovered evidence that would have led to

reporters judgments are being made on the
basis of "allegations, innuendo and
hearsay," and it is unfair to claim his
effectiveness as budget director has been
crippled. Lance tells his side of the story to
the committee Thursday.
"Scrutiny, investigation all that's fine,"
Lance said. "You ought to be able to go
through that. But when you've gone through
it, you ought to be able to present your side
of the case in a sense of fairness and be
heard out before any decision is made."

said President Carter "has confidence in M r.

should ask for the resignation, of course he
would do it. 1 1 would not ... be an easy thing
Lance, a long-time Georgia bank chief, is
under strong pressure to resign because of
questionable banking practices and large
overdrafts he incurred prior to joining the
On Capitol Hill, Serino testified he drew
his conclusions on the possible illegal
campaign contributions from news accounts
quoting Mrs. Lance saying her bank
overdrafts were used in Lance's 1974
Lance himself acknowledged at an Aug. 5
news conference that some of the overdrafts
on his wife's personal bank account were
used in the campaign.
Under federal law, it is illegal fora national
bank to contribute to political campaigns. If
there were a violation of that law in the
Lance case, it would have to be proved that
the Lance family's Calhoun First National
Bank in Georgia intentionally advanced
money to the campaign through Mrs.
Lance's overdrawn accounts.
After his testimony, Serino told reporters
the comptroller's office is analyzing all the
Lance family overdrafts at the Calhoun bank
in light of the 1974 campaign.
He said the review is being made at the
request of the Governmental Affairs
Committee, and that he is in daily contact
with the Justice Department. '
Several senators paused during the
hearings to denounce Powell for telephoning
the Chicago Sun-Times with what proved to
be false information about Sen. Charles
Percy of Illinois, the committee's ranking
Percy, who has called for Lance to resign,
said he received an apology from Powell and
considers the matter closed.
