Millions for sewer,
water, road projects
By MARK ANDREWS
The passage of the highway and clean
water bond referenda Tuesday will bring
millions of dollars in state funds for road
projects and water and sewer facilities to
North Carolina voters okayed the
issuance of $300 million in highway bonds
and $230 million in clean water bonds by
margins of 68 percent to 32 percent and 71
percent to 29 percent, respectively.
Coy Batten, grants administrator for the
state Department of Economic Resources
and Community Development, said Orange
Countil will receive $750,000 from the state
to aid the county in upgrading and
expanding its waste treatment facilities. The
expansion is designed to allow the plant to
treat greater amounts of waste water more
The expansion of the county's sewage
treatment facilities is a $6-million project.
The state and the county each will pay 12.3
percent of the cost. The federal government
will pay 75 percent.
In addition to the money for the treatment
plant, over $425,000 will be allocated to
Orange County for projects such as sewer
line construction. Trie county also will get
nearly $900,000 for its water system.
The state funds made available by the
bond referendum will reduce Orange Water
and Sewer Authority (OWASA) costs by 50
percent, Batten said.
"We're real pleased," Batten said in
reference to the bonds' passage. He noted
that work is being done now on preparing
the money for allocation next year.
Orange County also will get $870,000 in
state funds for upgrading or new
construction of rural secondary roads with
the passage of the $300-million highway
The amount of money allocated each
county for rural secondary roads was
predetermined according to the number of
miles of unpaved roads in the county, said
Bill Caddell, chief of planning for highways
in the state Department of Transportation.
Funds also will be allocated for primary
rural roads and for urban roads, Caddell
said. The amounts individual counties will
get has not been determined and will be
decided on the basis of need.
The state Board of Transportation is
working now on its highway improvement
program, Caddell said. The additional
money made available by the bond
referendum will allow it to add projects.
The $300 million in bonds will be sold over
the next five years. One fifth will be sold each
year. The first $60 million in bonds probably
will be sold early next year, Caddell said.
Ten percent of the $300 million will be
used for bridge construction, Caddell added,
noting such construction was considered a
Denny: Court ruling implies
legality of parking ordinance
By STEVE HUETTEL
The U.S. Supreme Court decision last month upholding a community's right to
restrict commuter parking in traffic-congested neighborhoods indicates that
Chapel Hill's newest parking ordinance is constitutional, according to Town
Attorney Emery Denny.
The ordinance, adopted in July by the town Board of Aldermen, restricts parking
on 41 residential streets. Part of the statute provides that residents on the streets can
apply to the board for free parking permits if off-street parking is not available.
The ordinance has not been enforced since Sept. 15 when a district court judge
responded to a lawsuit brought against the town by UNC law student Philip E.
Williams. Orange County District Judge Henry A. McKinnon Jr. issued an
injunction invalidating existing permits and prohibiting the town from issuing
McKinnon said his injunction would be in effect until the constitutionality of the '
ordinance could be determined.
Denny said last week that he will draft a new ordinance redefining the guidelines
for residents seeking parking permits. The ban on commuter parking will continue,
"The Arlington, Va., case (which the Supreme Court ruled on) indicates that the
approach Chapel Hill was taking was constitutional," Denny said.
Williams charges in the suit that the ordinance creates a special class of persons
those able to receive parking permits and is therefore unconstitutional under the
U.S. and N.C. constitution A
"The town is not interest 5i making classifications," Denny said. "We just want
to solveihepini pfo:, - T v"7 'V3 ' '
McKinnon has made tlo final ruling'on Williams' suit. Steve Bernholz, attorney
for Williams, said Wednesday that the court's injunction will stand until the town
answers the suit in court.
Bernholz said he had read a synopsis of the Arlington, Va., case and found it
"very similar" to Williams' pending suit. But, he said, "Judge McKinnon has the
Chapel Hill case in front of him." He said he feels McKinnon will find the ordinance
"We were shocked at the way the Supreme Court ruled," Bernholz added.
The high court's judgment spurred drafting of a new parking ordinance, Denny
said. If the board approves it, the injunction against the existing statute will be
Denny said the changes he will make concern specific criteria for residents
applying for permits. Under the existing ordinance, residents desiring permits must
demonstrate that they have no off-street parking at their homes and cannot develop
any in the immediate future.

Between white profs, black students
Committee focuses on race relations
By KATHY HART
A group of faculty members and students
that began meeting in mid-September to
discuss general race relations on campus has
narrowed its purpose to study relations
between black students and white faculty.
The group has a loose structure with no
format narrieTTSb designated members, no
chairperson and no specific charge.
"My first impression was that it was going
to be nothing but a bunch of bullshit," said
Carol Willis, a black student who was invited
to attend a committee'meeting to discuss the
problem black students have in dealing wth
the predominantly white faculty.
Black comprise 6.3 percent of the
undergraduate population at UNC, while
the faculty is 95.4 percent white.
Willis took a list of grievances to the first
committee meeting, at which she and other
black students told faculty members of the
problems of being a member of a minority
group on a predominantly white campus.
Faculty reaction to these grievances
changed her opinion about the group's
"I think the group can be very productive
if there is the right input," Willis said. "I was
glad to see someone was interested and that

everyone was pretty straightforward.
"Black students are not asking lor special
favors or for professors to change their
feelings. I think they just want professors to
be honest and not patroniethem." she said.
"Some 1 of the faculty and . advisers
admitted that they sometimes unconsciously
offended black students, and because of this
t think a lot of the problem is a
"A lot of black students have never dealt
with such a large number of whites before,
and a lot of professors and advisers have
never dealt with blacks on a one-to-one basis
either. So a lot of the problem is just learning
to communicate with each other," Willis
Edith Elliot, director of the Campus Y.
agreed with Willis that much of the tension
between black students and white professors
is the result of misconceptions and a lack of
"One thing that has come out of the
discussions has been the open and honest
expression by both white faculty and black
students that has helped both reconsider
some of the misconceptions they have about
each other." Elliot said.
Much of the initiative for the creation of
the group came from Hayden B. Renwick.

Sciences and a special assistant to the
"1 had enough students tell me about
racial biases on the part of professors to
know there was a problem." Renwick said.
"It was a problem that could easily have been
shunned or ignored for convenience sake,
but nevertheless the problem existed and
needed to be corrected."
The group's first task was to determine
whether a problem existed. Black students

University police criticize
By DAVID STACKS
Staff W riter .
UNC Security Director Ted Marvin drew
criticism Wednesday from several of his
subordinates for an edict he issued recently
restricting the authority of U niversity Police
officers when they are offtheUNCcampus.
Before M arvin issued the new policy Sept.
20, University Police had complete
enforcement powers off of the campus.
Under the new restrictions. University
officers cannoUmake an arrest off of the
campus without.first consulting the Chapel
Hill Police Dep&rfment.
Officers wereiwalling to comment on the
situation but' asked that their names be
withheld front. ' publication, fearing
retaliation by Mirvin.
The dissenting officers noted they are
commissioned by 'the Chapel Hill Police
Department. Therefore, they said, they have
the same jurisdiction as town police.
"Marvin is wrong," one officer said. "Jfwe
see a violation off -campus, we should beable
to issue a citation.
"I don't care what the new policy is. I've
got my oath and if 1 see someone doing
something illegal, I'm going to stop him."
One officer said Marvin's policy is in
direct conflict with statements the security
director approved for a public-relations
pamphlet earlier this year.

"I think what we're rapidly doing isgettingdown to specific

Friday would not discuss specific examples or release the

exchanges." said Samuel R. Williamson,
dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.
"We decided there definitely was a
problem," said John Horin. an assistant
professor in the geography department, who. .
has attended several of the group's meetings.
"I think the problem is a twofold one."
Florin said. "First, we need to deal with
those noticeable put-downs from faculty
members such as racial slurs, which are
uncommon but happen occasionally.
Second, we need to approach the problem of
appealing to the different interests of the
William Anderson, an assistant
psychology professor who also has attended
meetings of the group.. said. "We dealt with
issues and ways in which professors,
unawares, communicate negative messages
to black students. The problem is shared by
both sides. Students may communicate
negative messages, too."
In the meetings, group members discussed
ways to make faculty members more
sensitive and responsive to the needs of black
students. The group decided pamphlets and
booklets establishing guidelines and making
statements on relations between black
students and white faculty were one way to
deal with the problem.
Willis said many of the professors who
attended the meetings were not guilty of bias
and it would be difficult to explain the
problem to those who were racist.
"Hopefully, the pamphlets and booklets
will make them (biased professors) more
cognizant of the problem." Renwick said.

activity on other than University property,
they should contact the proper authorities."

"We are not here to patrol the? streets' of ' '

University's standpoint, limiting jurisdiction
to the campus makes a lot of sense."
"I feel kind of dumb when I see something
illegal and have to sit there and twiddle my
thumbs, an officer said.
Marvin said the policy does not prohibit
University Police from s'opping cars on
town streets. Before an officer can arrest
someone or issue a citation off-campus,
however, he must notify the town police.

Erickson was director of athletics at
Carolina from 1952 until he resigned in
1968. After his resignation, he continued
to serve as a consultant and adviser to the
department of athletics.
Erickson. a native of Oak Park, 111.,
was a star halfback on Tar Heel teams
from 1928 to 1930. He had been brought
to Chapel H ill by Chuck Collins, then the
Carolina coach, who had seen him play as
a freshman at the University of
Wisconsin. Erickson wasa member of the
famous "Team of a Thousand Backs," the
1929 squad which posted a 9-1 record.
He earned his B.S. degree in

UNC's desegregation plan, written and submitted to HEW

The chief argument UNC officials have with the new rules
centers on a demand for a 150 percent increase in black
freshmen and transfer students on UNC's predominantly
white campuses by 1982. j
UNC officials say it is possible to increase the proportions
of black students in such schools from the current 25 percent
to about 33 percent by 1982.
The plan has created some controversy among the state's
black citiens. One of the board's black members, Julius
Chambers, resigned in August protesting the plan.

provided more funds to enlarge the
facility to its present size. Erickson was
also instrumental in the contruction of
Carolina's Finley Golf Course.
Erickson played a key role in the
formation of the ACC. It was at his
recommendation that Carolina withdraw
from the Southern Conference in 1953 to
become a charter member of the ACC.

However, Smith said, Ford did mention to

"That's been a longtime ago," Smith said.
"I can't remember. But I don't think any of
