Most off-campus students will be
paying higher rents next year, and some
apartment dwellers will face rent hikes
every six months under a new lease
structure planned by one owner.
R. A. Properties of Durham, owner of
Kingswood, Estes Park, Royal Park,
University Lake and Booker Creek
apartments, is switching to six-month
leases, which will provide for rent
increases every six months if necessary,
said Chapel Hill manager Brent Bobbitt.

With the new lease structure, tenants
would have the option of terminating

for most students would be sometime in
November. Since there usually are
openings in University housing after the
beginning of the semester, some off
campus residents would be able to move
back on campus, Gibbs said.
Although most other apartments are
not changing lease structures, rents will
be going up, local apartment managers
"I expect refcts will be going up around
August or September," said Becky Colley
of Bolinwood Apartments.
Managers at Foxcroft, Carolina and
Old Well apartments said rents at those
apartments definitely will increase.

said rent would rise at both Carolina and
Old Well from $220 a month to $230 a

at Foxcroft in February.

Apartments, said there may be a 3 percent
rent increase this summer at Colony.

pay lem to park
By LAURA ALEXANDER
Students who are willing to park a little farther from campus
can get a break on the price of parking permits for 1979-80 if they
buy a sticker for the new Manning Drive fringe lot to be
constructed behind Hinton James.
Carolyn Taylor, UNC Traffic Office supervisor, said stickers
for the new lot, designated as the F lot, will be priced at $27 for
the academic year and $36 for the full year. The price of a sticker
for regular parking areas will be $54 for the academic year and
$72 for the full year.
The fringe lot is being constructed to replace spaces which will
be lost to campus construction, such as the loss of the Carolina
Union parking lot when construction begins this summer on the
new library and the Carolina Union addition.
Taylor said the price of the Manning lot stickers also will
include the price of a pass for the U bus (campus belt) route. The
campus route pass has been newly created by the town of Chapel
Parking officials say they hope the reduced rates for the
Manning lot permits will encourage students to park there
Applications for parking permits will be available beginning
April 2 in residence halls, the Carolina Union, the Traffic Office
and Married Student Housing, Taylor said. May 15 is the
deadline for returning the applications.
Students who qualify for permits can pick them up in Hanes
Hall Aug. 22 to 24. Allocation of the permits is based primarily
on seniority, although students who pre-register for permits this
spring will have priority over those who wait until after the
deadline or register for a permit next fall. No applications are
processed during the summer.
Parking permit registration for students attending the first
session of summer school will be held May 21, the day before
classes begin, in the Traffic Office. A permit for a summer school
session costs $9.
Although University officials had anticipated an increase in
the cost of permits, John Temple, vice chancellor for business
and finance, said additional data and reports proved an increase
to be unnecessary.

Armed with broad political support at home, the leaders of
Israel and Egypt prepared Thursday for their journey to
Washington to sign a treaty ending 30 years of hostilities between
But a furious Palestinian leader vowed an all-out drive to
scuttle the "defeatist, separatist" treaty.
Mahmoud Labadi of the Marxist Popular Front for the
Liberation of Palestine said in Beirut, Lebanon, that his group, a
branch of the Palestine Liberation Organization, would "spare
no effort to undermine U.S. interests in the Arab world.
"The Egyptian regime has chosen the enemy camp, and we will
deal with President Anwar Sadat's government the same way we
deal with the Israelis and the imperialist Americans," Labadi
said. "Deterrent action is inevitable."
At the United Nations, the Security Council passed a
resolution Thursday that called Israeli settlements in occupied
Arab territory an obstruction to peace, and set up a commission
to study them. The resolution passed the council 12-0 after eight
days of debate. The United States, Britain and Norway
The Israeli mission said in a statement it would bar the study
commission from occupied territories.
The Israeli Parliament, or Knesset, after a 28-hour debate,
endorsed the treaty by a vote of 95-18 early Thursday. The
English version is to be signed by Sadat and Prime Minister
Menachem Begin at 2 p.m. Monday on the north lawn of the
In Cairo, Sadat called the Knesset approval marvelous. There
was still a possibility signing ceremonies for the Arabic and
Hebrew versions could be conducted in Cairo and Jerusalem.
"Yes, there is joy that we have reached this day," Begin told a
weary Parliament. "There is worry for the future. There is
trembling in our hearts it is perfectly natural."

Presidents Anwar Sadat and Jimmy Carter and Prime
Minister Menachem Begin prepare to meet in
Washington as Sadat and Begin will sign a peace treaty
ending 30 years of conflict. The signing is scheduled for
2 p.m. Monday on the north lawn of the White House.
Opposition politicians in Cairo warned in parliamentary
hearing the treaty would isolate Egypt from the rest of the Arab
world. But Sadat's party controls 312 of the 360 seats, so
ratification is assured. Sadat is expected to submit the document
to Parliament immediately after his return from Washington.
Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan arrived in Washington on
Thursday to continue negotiations with the United States on a
memorandum of understanding that will cover American
involvement in putting the treaty into effect. It designates the
United States as a third party to the treaty.
Defense Minister Ezer Weizman will go to Washington today
to negotiate remaining problems on a timetable for Israeli
evacuation of Sinai oil fields.
Egypt agreed in the treaty to sell surplus oil to Israel at market
rates, and the United States is supporting an Israeli request to
buy North Sea oil from Norway.
Hunt? Johnson blast
Staff and Wirr Reports
UNC Board of Governors chairman
William A. Johnson and Gov. Jim Hunt
said Thursday HEW officials acted
improperly in suggesting a compromise
in the UNC-HEW desegregation dispute.
"I think they should have dealings
through Friday's office," Johnson said.
"I think it's the worst possible way to
do business." Hunt said. "They ought to
deal with the person who's captain of the
team and makes the decisions, and that's
(UNC President William) Friday."
Sen. James Edwards of Caldwell
County, chairman of the Senate
Appropriations Committee on
Education, said telephone conversations
earlier in the week with an unnamed
HEW official prompted his questioning
of Friday about a suggested settlement at
a legislative committee meeting Tuesday.
"I asked him some hypothetical
questions." he said. Edwards asked
Friday whether he would approve
dropping the issue of program
duplication, and placing the renovation
figures in the range of $60 to $80 million
with enhancement programs. Edwards
said the suggestion was his own, and not
the suggestions .of the HEW official
whom he referred to as "just someone in
"HEW should get in contact with Dr.
Friday and offer any compromise they
have to him," Edwards said. "After all,
he's the one to go to."
HEW's latest offer calls for the
University to promise to begin new
construction and new programs on the
five black campuses in the system, with a
price tag of $120 million. Friday's offer,
rejected as inadequate by Califano, has
been to spend more than $20 million on
renovations and campus improvements.
Hunt said the University's offer, while
it could be lower than the amount needed
to renovate the five campuses totally,
signaled a significant commitment to
correcting problems on predominantly
black campuses. Hunt said the $120
million package of programs for the

...'girls eat just as much food as boys'

Special to the Dailj Tar Heel
"Give boys good food and enough of it, and you
won't have no grief, but girls are harder to please
than boys." says Elsie Weaver, who calls herself the
"one and only cook" at the Chi Omega sorority
Elsie is always smiling and ready to talk about
herself and her work. She keeps busy cooking meals
three times a day. five days a week, and a Saturday
brunch for the 105 girls who are members of the
"It's hard work preparing food for so many girls,"
says Elsie, "You have to keep at it, you can't stop;
don't let anyone fool you it's hard work."
The 60-year-old woman has fed the Chi-Os for 15
years. UNC President William C. Friday must have
heard about her good cooking, as he asked her
several years ago to cook for him and his family. She
declined, although she does bake coffee cakes,
cookies, banana bread and other sweets for the
chancellor's tea in the spring.
Elsie, who is in charge of everything that happens
in the kitchen, helps the house mother purchase
groceries and plan all meals.
Individual meals take Elsie anywhere from two
hours for regular meals to all day long to prepare
specialties. As she finishes one meal she begins work
on the next one. Elsie says she doesn't have a
specialty at the Chi-O house, but her least favorite
dish to make is lasagna. It isn't worth the trouble it
takes to cook it and put it all together, she says.

FCC says citizens more involved in local radio
By JIM HUMMEL
Staff W riter
Citizen group involvement in broadcasting is increasing but
has shifted from the national to the local level, a Federal
Communications Commission official said.
"I think members of the public are as involved as ever with
matters concerning broadcasting," said Henry Bauman, chief of
the FCCs broadcast renewal branch. The FCC currently is
hearing cases involving two local stations.
The Coalition for Responsive Media has filed a petition to
deny license renewal to the UNC-TV Network, charging the
network with discrimination against minorities. Project Access,
another Durham-based group, is seeking to prevent a merger of
WDBS in Durham with Village Broadcasting Company, which
Bauman said although the FCC receives 40-50 petitions to
deny license renewal annually, citizen groups are finding it easier
to settle their disputes with the local stations.
"There has been a definite trend towards this type of seUlement
lately," Bauman said. "The main issues of concern are equal
employment opportunity, programming, and stations'
ascertainment of community problems. Out of these, the
majority of cases we handle deal with equal employment.
"Citizen involvement is definitely not slackening off," FCC
official Peter Casciato, who is involved with the WDBS case,
said. "It has increased lately because programming has become
The WDBS case dates back to last summer when Project
Access, headed by Rick Doble and Aden Field, filed a petition
saying the merger would no longer allow diversity of
Casciato said under a law passed in 1974 the FCC must decide
if a unique format would be lost under a merger. Project Access
also said if a merger were to occur, it would concentrate media
ownership and reduce public access to differing points of view.
FCC officials say the case will not be decided for several months.
Bauman said because of the shift to local settlement the
number of groups like Project Access that file petitions does not
accurately reflect the role citizens are taking in broadcasting
"1 would say the big push for involvement was in the early
I970's," said Bishetta Merritt-Williams, associate professor of
RTVMP. "A number of people have become more attuned to
civil rights. People started to realize they wanted to be a part of
Merritt-Williams said the granting of standing was a change
that opened the door for group involvement in media. She said
individuals always have been allowed to petition broadcasters
but groups could not take an active role in station operations
until the late 1960s.
"I think in earlier years stations figured these groups didn't
