Approximately 35 persons attend
Nooners elude fuzz, catch buzz
By MEREDITH CREWS
Making their second comeback
appearance in two weeks, some 35
members of the High Noon Society
shucked and jived their way around
University police Friday on the way to
publicly copping a buzz.
The presence of University Police,
first at the Bell Tower and then at Forest
Theater, forced the High Noon society
to wind up its activities in front of the
Undergraduate Admissions building. '
University Police were stationed at
the Bell Tower prior to the group's noon
marijuana vigil. The society, which met
Sept. 9 for the first time in two years,
then reassembled at Forest Theater.

Justice Department speaks on med school case
WASHINGTON (UP1) - The Carter

support for taking race into account in

with the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of
Allan Bakke. a 37-year-old white man who
claimed "reverse discrimination" against
him by the University of California Medical
School at Davis.
The case came to the high court from the
California Supreme Court, which agreed
with Bakke's contention that rejection of his
application for admission stemmed from the
fact that 16 of the I00 openings' at the
medical school were reserved lor minorities.
In the brief, which underwent
considerable revision, the Justice
Department contended there was no
evidence the 1 6 spots represented a strict
quota that was "exlusionary" of whites.
The brief asked that the state court's
decision "be reversed to the extent that it

the Chapel Hill Police Department saw
things a little differently.
Police officers reported that they went to
Granville Towers around midnight Sunday
to quell a water fight between residents of
They found approximately 300 persons
standing in the halls and stairwells of
Granville West, according to a police
spokesperson. Residents of Granville South
and East also were outside.
But, McGraw said, "1 must have been the
only person with any water. Lveryone else
heard that the police were coming and got rid
of their water. I guess."
He was taken to the police station for
questioning but was not charged with a
violation ol the Chapel Hill water ordinance.
A set ol hubcaps was stolen from a car

parking lot over the weekend, University
James R. Atwood, 308 Beachwood St.,
Hope Mills, told police he left his car parked
in the lot at 1 1 p.m. Friday. When he

"We also want black writers and
editors to sensitie their news to the
black community. We don't want them
just tearing copy off the AP wire and
putting it in the paper. Blacks can get
that from any daily.
"What we want them to do is to
examine the news to see how it affects
the black community specifically. If
black editors don't appeal to the black
community, then there will be no special
reason to read or buy their newspapers."
SBPI also is working with black
youths, helping students attain
internships with black newspapers.
They also are planning to have a
newspaper workshop for high school
students next summer at UNC.
SBPI is also looking for two interns
now and will be looking for five next
summer to help in its many projects.
