Poetry reading in Dey Hall;
admirers hear author Kinnell
By PETER HAPKE
Between gulps of water from a nearby
pitcher, poet Galway Kinnell presented a
program of selected works to a crowd of
admirers ,n the Dey Hall faculty lounge
earlier this week.
Kinnell's visit was sponsored by the
English department and the English
Graduate Student Club. The reading
included poems from several of his
collections: ' Flower Herding on Mount
Monadnock (1964), Body Rags ( 1968), The
Book of Nightmares ( 197 1 ) and The A venue
Bearing the Initial of Christ into the New
K innell began by reading some of his early
didactic poems. The messages were brought
out vividly by his rhetorical lyrics. In "St.
Francis and the Sow," for example, the
everything flowers from within
and in "The Apple Tree:"
(apples) that still invent past their own
to be brighter.
Then embarking on a series of descriptive

Transportation Committee prepared a set of
questions Thursday for the Town of Chapel
Hill regarding bus service to Carrboro.
Alderman Douglas Sharer listed a number
of questions he felt should be answered
before the committee could make
recommendations about bus service from
Chapel Hill to Carrboro. Sharer would like

peak service. This extension would involve
adding an additional bus to the Carrboro
route earlier in the afternoon.

poems, Kinnell told of his meeting with
Robert Frost in a poem, and related the story
of Frost's poetry reading at John F.
"Being a thrifty New Englander, Frost
naturally scribbled his poems on an old sheet
of paper," Kinnell noted, "but in the bright
sunlight on the inaugural paltform he
couldn't read the poem. This was poetry's
highest moment and it looked like Frost
might ruin it. But he came through for us; he
tossed the paper aside and recited the poem
from his heart."

in his reading of Part II of "The Avenue

World," which describes a New York fish

Answer to a cyclist's prayers
By MICHAEL WADE
Portions of a long-awaited bikeways
system in Chapel Hill should be ready
for cyclists by early next year, according
to Town Planner Liz Rooks.
Construction of the new bikepaths
will be funded with $350,000 in capital
improvement funds approved by voters
as part of a $1.75 million bond last
The bikepaths will be similar to
sidewalks and will be built on the curb
six to eight inches above the streets they
parallel. They will be from five to eight
feet wide, depending on the space
The material used for the bikepaths
has not been determined. Concrete,
asphalt and a brick-like material are all
Rooks said all three materials hae
disadvantages. I he brick-like material
and concrete provide a rough ride for
cyclists, while asphalt breaks up it not
packed down by heavy chicles. Rooks
Concrete will probably be used along
major roads because it looks better, she
Construction of the bikeways has not
begun yet. but surveying of the sites is
near completion. I he town must obtain
encroachment agreements with the state
Department of Transportation before it
can build bikeways on state highway
Although Rooks said a town has
never applied to the transportation
department for encroachment for
bikeways. she foresees no difficulties in
obtaining them. "It will probably go
through without any problem. It's not
that different from building a sidewalk."

Rooks said the town has already
acquired many of the pedestrian and
bikeways easements that will be needed
before the entire greenway system can
be built along the creeks.
Bike lanes on central area streets,
including West Rosemary Street,
Graham Street. Pittsboro Street and
Country Club Road were also part of
the Planning Department's original
bikeways proposal. But Rooks said no
bike lanes w ill be put on any streets for
at least a year because parking must be
prohibited on those streets before bike
lanes can be constructed.
The bikeways system received
S350.OOO from the capital improvement
fund instead of its expected $100,000
because few petitions for paving of dirt
streets have been received by the town,
Rooks said. Funds not used for paving
have been transferred to the bikeways
