Yancey, a 10-year-old Indian boy from
Lumberton, was brought to the burn unit at
N.C. Memorial Hospital with more than half
of his body covered with third degree burns
from a gasoline explosion. He was not
expected to live.
Yancey did live, however, because of the
efforts of doctors, nurses and therapists in
the specialized unit for children and adults
the only one of its kind in North Carolina.
The teamwork that saved Yancey's life
originates from the small, crowded facilities
on the third floor of NCMH. The burn unit
consists of only six beds, a treatment room
and a patient-staff lounge.
A team of doctors and nurses cluster
around the bed of an elderly black man. His
body is severely burned, exposing raw flesh.
Three people lift him gingerly and speak to
him soothingly while the doctor examines
his back and prescribes medication.
According to Dr. Roger E. Salisbury,
director of the burn unit, the key to
successful burn treatment is this teamwork.
"Little Yancey, and others like him, lived
because everyone on the staff gave 100 per
cent. They really do a great job."
The staff consists of three doctors, eight
registered nurses, three licensed practical
nurses and six aides. In addition, support
services offered by physical therapists,
occupational therapists and social workers
are part of the rehabilitative process.
Treatment for burn victims from North
Carolina and adjacent states will be
enhanced when the unit moves into a new 23
bed facility in the hospital addition now
under construction. The new center, called
the North Carolina Jaycee Burn Center after
the principal fund raisers, will provide
16,000 square feet of floor space and will be
equipped to deal with a variety of medical
problems which burn patients face.
When a patient first enters the burn unit,
the most immediate problem is shock
because of damaged blood vessels. After the
first few days, Salisbury explained, the
greatest concern is the risk of infection.
"Your skin is the largest organ of your
body. It provides protection from the

While the likelihood of being arrested for
cohabiting in Chapel Hill is small, an
unmarried couple living together may be
subject to a variety of other problems.
According to North Carolina lawif any
man and woman, not being married to each
other, shall lewdly and lasciviously
associate, bed and cohabit together, they
shall be guilty of a misdemeanor."
The maximum punishment for such an
offense, termed fornication, is $500, six
months imprisonment or both.
Circumstantial evidence is sufficient for
U.S. Census Bureau figures indicate that
the number of persons cohabiting has
doubled since 1970, from 654,000 to 1.3
million, and experts say these figures are

external environment. When your skin is
burned off, you are highly susceptible to
infections," he said.
Thus, great care is taken to maintain
sterile conditions. Patients are bathed and
antibiotic dressings are changed daily. In
addition, everyone must wear sterile gloves
and gowns when handling the patients.
Nutrition, is another common problem of
burn victims, according to Salisbury.
Because water evaporates through the
exposed areas, a patient can become
nutritionally depleted. Knowing and
recognizing these problems requires
constant care and attention.
Debby Land is, a registered nurse in the
burn unit, said people don't realize that it
takes a long time for a burn to heal. Patients
have stayed in the unit from VA months to a
Chapel Hill Police Department. The only
time the department makes investigations
concerning fornication is when it receives
complaints, usually from landlords.
Callahan said he knows of no such
investigations in the three years he has been a
detective with the force.
"It's not one of our high-priority
concerns," he said. "We don't go looking for

"The climate is very good (in Chapel Hill)
not to have to worry about the police
knocking at your door."
But Callahan and Bernholz discussed
some of the problems associated with
cohabiting at a preventive legal workshop
last week in the Carolina Union.
One problem is that North Carola law
does not recognize common-law marriages,
so cohabiting lacks the legal protection
granted to marriages.

several states, grant legal status, based on

EVANSTON, 111. - The wind which blew
through this Chicago suburb Saturday
brought with it an indication of things to
come for Carolina's football team.
People waited for a long time, but it still
was a surprise when it happened. With 1:54
left in the first quarter of Carolina's 4 1-7 win
over N orthwestern, Amos Lawrence, the Tar
Heels' highly billed freshman tailback, broke
away from Wildcat defenders at midfield
and outraced them for 53 yards for his first
collegiate touchdown. The first of many,
Lawrence, who picked up 101 yards to
lead all players in the game in rushing, put
together another show for the sparse crowd
in Northwestern's Dyche Stadium before the
game was over. Near the end of the third
quarter, he ran toward the left side on an
option play and passed the ball 20 yards to
tight end Brooks Williams, who ran into the

good passer, so I threw a lot," Lawrence said

"Our patients are in a great deal of
discomfort for a long time. They- have to
learn to cope with it, the nurse has to cope
with it, and the doctor has to cope with it,"
Salisbury feels that rehabilitation of burn
victims is just as important as the healing
process. Physical therapists begin exercising
the patients immediately to keep up their
strength. In addition, occupational
therapists make splints to keep the
extremities from contracting or curling up.
"In the new center, the stress will be on
burn reconstruction," said Salisbury, a
plastic surgeon. "I'm encouraging the
referral of patients who are crippled, as well
as disfigured, by burns. Not only do we want
to make people look better, but also function

without the benefit of a civil marriage
Unmarried couples often must face the
problem of identifying property and
deciding who owns it in the event of a
breakup, something Bernholz said happens
frequently with such relationships.
"If you purchase something, hang on to
something that shows you own it," she said.
Written antenuptial agreements, which
are similar to contracts, also may be used to
spell out property rights between the
Bernholz also said that wills are important
for cohabiting couples because, in the event
of the death of one partner, property would
be transferred to the deceased's relatives, not
to his partner.
Persons of the opposite sex who live
together but do not engage in sexual
intercourse may have difficulty defeating a
charge of fornication because such a charge
requires only circumstantial evidence.

used his speed to get away from the last
defender between him and the goal line on
his touchdown run.

Lawrence's debut was just part of a total
offensive show where Carolina was able to
move the ball on the Wildcats nearly at will.
Carolina took the first drive of the game 81
yards for a touchdown and scored again
twice, while allowing Northwestern into Tar
Heel territory only as far as the 45-yard line.
Northwestern picked up its first
touchdown of the season on a quick drive
down the field in the second quarter to make
the score 21-7. But Carolina put the game
out of reach with another touchdown before

A study recommending the elimination of 53 of the 494
teacher-education programs in the UNC system, includingsix
at UNC, was adopted Friday by the UNC Board of
Governors' planning committee.
The study, which received the endorsement of UNC
President William C.Friday, will come before the UNC Board
of Governors at their Oct. 14 meeting.
The 1 54-page report makes general recommendations
regarding policy and specific recommendations on individual
programs at each of the 15 UNC campuses offering teacher
Several staff members of the UNC General Administration,
led by Donald J . Stedman, a professor in the UNC-CH School
of Education, conducted the study, which took more than a
year to complete.
A decline in the demand for teachers, changes in the teacher
job market, the quality of teacher-education courses and
several other factors were taken into account by the report in
making the suggestions for program discontinuations.
In addition to the recommendations to discontinue the 53
programs, the study also calls for a moratorium on the
creation of any new teacher-education programs in the state.
Instead, UNC should direct its energies toward improving

Because landlords basically have the
freedom to select their tenants, Bernholz
said, unmarried couples may be refused
housing. And getting around this obstacle
may be difficult.
"Almost every lease requires that you list
who's going to live there, so you can't
smuggle somebody in," she said.
She said some landlords may attempt to
withhold security deposits if they discover
tenants cohabiting. But, she said, "I think
there will be legal grounds to challenge
landlords' keeping security deposits because
of fornication alone."
Callahan said unmarried couples also may
face problems when seeking employment,
especially with larger industries that do
extensive background checks, and when
applying for credit.

Of the programs recommended for discontinuation, six are
offered at UNC: elementary education, doctorate program;
special education, bachelor's program; social foundations,
master's program; health education, bachelor's program;
business, commerce and distributive education, master's
program; and school psychology, intermediate program.
The report also makes recommendations for improvement
of 108 teacher-education programs in the system. Three
programs at UNC-CH are named in that recommendation:
curriculum and instruction, master's program; student
personnel services in higher education, master's program; and
English education, bachelor's program.
. Two programs at Carolina are recommended for inventory
revision: administration and supervision, and school
Twenty other teacher-education programs from other
campuses are also named for inventory revision.

A moratorium should be created on new programs at the
