Fuel was thrown on the already hotly
contested Carrboro races when Carrboro
Community Coalition (CCC) candidates
learned this weekend of an unsigned
"information" sheet circulated in at least one
Carrboro apartment complex. The sheet
made several accusations against present
CCC board members, including charges that
the board fired the previous town manager
without cause and has not conducted itself in
a proper manner.
The sheet also charged that the board
allowed a member to keep from paying
county taxes for eight years, has a bad
attitude toward non-CCC persons and
delayed bus service to Carrboro without
Coalition candidates called the charges
totally false, except for the mention that the
present board raised salaries of members
from $600 to $2,400.
"I thought it was pretty ridiculous," CCC
candidate and board incumbent Nancy
White said. "We (CCC candidates) read it
and found it pretty irritating. "
"I've heard about it," CCC mayoral
candidate Bob Drakeford said. "I
understand that all the charges, except the
thing about the rise in salary, were false."
Indepedent mayoral candidate John
Boone said he had not seen the sheet.
Independent alderman candidate John
Thomas, who said he had seen the sheet,
said, "All of these things (points on the sheet)
are common knowledge. They're points of
discussion all over Carrboro."
Thomas said he did not know the source of

University cops proficient with guns
By DAVID STACKS
The only University Police officer who
ever bas shot anyone says the patrol officer's
job would be more dangerous if police did
not carry guns.
"We are trained to kill" Lt. Dave
Williams said. "In a crowd situation with
someone firing, we are supposed to return
his fire. His untrained fire is supposedly
more dangerous than my trained fire."

chance to . show their marksmanship last

Student Government begins
campaign for fee increase
By HOWARD TROXLER
Student Government began its campaign
to raise the student activity fee in earnest
Monday afternoon when Student Body
President Bill Moss and his staff met with
several representatives of student
organizations and campus leaders to discuss
the fee increase.
UNC students will vote on a proposed
$2.50 per semester, per student fee increase
in a special campuswide referendum Nov.
"You are our most important resource in
reaching students in your areas, so we would
like all of you to attend this meeting," Moss
told the residence hall officers and
representatives of organizations in a letter
explaining the meeting Monday, "lt is
important that we all work together on the
referendum if we want to see it passed."
Members of Moss' executive staff will

average score was 90. 1 percent. An officer is
considered a marksman when he stores 90.
An officer's encounter at the firing range
may be the only time he ever draws his gun. lt
should be the only time he ever fires at a
target that can't fire back.
"We've been training for years." Patrol
Officer Alfred O'Daniel said. "It (firing his
weapon) is something I've always thought
about. But I really don't know how I would
react if I actually had to shoot someone.
Until it happens, you just don't know."
University Police policy allows an officer
to fire on someone only if the suspect is
about to kill or grievously injure someone.
The training sessions at the firing range
attempt to inform officers of their options
meet with individual residence hall students
this week to push the fee increase.
In addition. Student Government is
distributing a fact sheet listing seven reasons
w hy students should vote for a fee increase.
Reasons cited include:
The last fee increase was in 1954. Since
then, inflation has been 1 12 percent.
In the past 23 years, student population
has increased from 6,000 to more than
20.000. Student population has been
constant since 197 1 . but inflation has been 40
percent since then.
Almost 50 percent of the fees now paid
automatically go to the Daily Tar Heel and
the Carolina Union. The remainder is
allocated to student groups by the Campus
Governing Council (CGC).
Last year, requests from student
organizations were more than double the
available CGC funds.

In days of yore, panty raids offered a pause that refreshed, a chance to relieve
boredom and anxiety, make new friends and raise hell
Such is still the case today, but the times they are a changin', and the male
oriented activity has brought response from many North Campus coeds in the form
of jockey strap raids.
Amid the soprano chant of, "j-o-c...k-e-y...s-t-r-a-p, jockey straps, throw 'em
down, jockey straps, we want yours..." many coeds have gone about the sport with
a frenzied enthusiasm that would make the staunchest women's liberationist proud.
And the men have retaliated with the customary panty raid.
"I think our girls have cooperated tremendously with the guys," says one Mclver
resident. "There isn't a girl here who hasn't lost some panties. However, the guys are
a little slack in their 'support' to our caus'e."
"Some nights are better than others," one coed adds. "Sometimes we get more
jocks, sometimes we don't."
Mclver resident adviser Mary Gardner' says she believes the raids conducted by
her dorm are partly an attempt to dispel the myth that girlsareallsugarand spice.
"I think they're trying to get rid of their virgin images," she says. "All-girl dorms
have that straight-laced image. I think they're out to prove they're not all pure and
Some coeds have complained that, instead of jock straps, they've been greeted
with pots of water and firecrackers tossed from upper-story windows.
"It can be a hassle,' but that's half the fun," one coed says.
Dorm resident advisers and Upper and Lower Quad resident director Charlie
Miller say they neither condone nor tolerate the throwing of firecrackers during
"It (the raids) was cool the first few times, but it has been going on for three weeks
now and it's getting ridiculous," Miller says. "I'm all for everyone having fun and

But the panty and jock raids continue. And rumors of streaking are on the
horizon. Will North Campus bare it?

The Educational Policy Committee
(EOC) voted Monday to support deletion of
the "rat clause" from the Honor Code and to
oppose a proposal for faculty proctoring
EPC will present these recommendations
to the Faculty Council in December.
The recommendations were contained in a
rough draft of the committee's planned
report to the council on Honor Code
changes proposed by the Committee on
Student Conduct (COSC). which
recommended deletion of the "rat clause"
and use of faculty proctoring.
"Committee members have become aware
that the Honor Code provision that makes
the failure of a student to report an honor
violation is odious to the vast majority of
students." the rough draft of EPC proposals
The report further states that the
provision is inoperative because "no action
has been taken against a student on that
ground for some years."

"Every one of these men is a competent
shot." said Capl. Lindy Pendergrass of the
Chapel Hill Polite Department, who has
been working with Mauer to certify UNC
officers in the use of firearms. "They are all
very confident in themselves."
Williams is the only U niversity officer who
ever has shot anyone, and the incident
occurred before he became a law officer.
Williams was working at a Chatham County
convenience store when two men held up the
store and threatened to hit Williams with a
bottle and a pair of pliers. Williams pulled
his .38-caliber pistol from behind the counter
and shot the bottle-bearing assailant in the
"I was glad I had the gun," Williams said.
"There was no doubt he was going to hit me
either with the bottle or with a pair of seven
pound pliers. If they had hit me. they would
have killed me."
Williams said the experience did not
influence his decision to enter law
enforcement. He said his friends and
relatives interested him in police work.
No University Police officer has ever fired
his weapon in the line of duty in recent
memory, but officers have drawn their
weapons and threatened to shoot.
"Some officers go through their entire'
careers without ever drawing their
weapons." Mauer said. "Maybe that means
they are good police officers. Or maybe
they're just lucky. 1 don't know."
One officer drew his gun in 1975 when a
Durham man pulled a gun and threatened to
shoot a UNC student in the Hill Hall parking
