Tuesday's elections to decide
By LIZ LUCAS
Assistant University Editor
Because no candidate received a clear majority
of votes in several of the campus elections last
Tuesday, students will return to the polls tomor
row to elect student body president, Carolina
Athletic Association president, Residence Hall
Association president, and a Campus Governing
Council representative from District 16.
Voting irregularities, including a discrepency of
over 300 votes not registered on the poll tender's
sheet at Morrison residence hall, led to a new elec
tion of student body president. Jon Reckford, who
came in only 101 votes behind second place student
body presidential candidate Hugh Reckshun,
challenged the Elections Board after the vote count
After challenging the Elections Board, Reckford
dropped out of the election, leaving Reckshun,
who received 30.68 percent of the vote, and Kevin
Monroe, who received 40.38 percent of the vote,
to compete in the re-vote, to be Jield along with the
. Reckshun said that he had not used the addi
tional time for campaigning. "I've frequented a
few night spots downtown, but I haven't really
done any more campaigning," Reckshun said, ad
ding that even without Reckford in the race the
election will still be close.
The close race for student body president was
not surprising, Reckshun said. "Students are final
ly waking up to Student Government and realizing
something is going on up there," he said.
"Whoever gets elected will have to. do things dif
ferent now that there is some student awareness,"
Monroe could not be reached for comment
Saturday and Sunday.
In the RHA presidential race, Mark Dalton and
Henry Miles will be competing in Tuesday's run
off. Both candidates agreed that this extra week of
campaigning before the run-off has been helpful.

increase in "Chabel Hill.
By BOB KQMPLETON
Arrests for driving under thie influence between November
1982 and January 1983 increased by 77 percent from the same
time period last year, according to statistics released last week by
the Chapel Hill Police Department.
The department was aiming for a 10 percent increase in DUI
arrests when its drunk driving enforcement program went into
effect last November, said Gregg Jarvies, master officer at the
Chapel Hill Police Department.
The town received a $66,000 federal grant for a one-year pro
gram to increase the enforcement of DUI laws and to increase
public awareness of drunk driving dangers. The grant accounts
for 70 percent of the program's cost, with local funds paying the
remainder of the bill.
One phase of the program places four to six officers on local
roads to look specifically for drunk drivers on Thursday, Friday
and Saturday nights. The intensified patrol is an addition to the
eight-to-12 officers normally on duty.
Police said they hope that increased enforcement and visibili
ty of police patrols would deter people from drunk driving.
"I think they are more aware that officers are going to be out
there," Jarvies said.
A state study estimated that on any given night one out of 10
drivers on N.C. roads is drunk, and that the chance of a drunk
Dram shop proposals
driver getting caught is one in -200.
Jarvies said the chance of being caught in Chapel Hill pro
bably is higher than in other parts of the state.
"We hoped the odds would go down from 50:1 to 30:1," Jar
vies said. ; ,
Besides increasing the DUI arrest rate by putting more of
ficers on the road, the grant also provides for a computer pro
gram to be used at the Research Triangle Institute. The com
puter will assimilate data on arrests to help police locate par
ticular trouble spots in town. Because of delays, the computer
program is not yet in use, but Jarvies said the department has
obtained good results mapping the data by hand
Part of the grant is being used to increase public awareness
through the public schools. Officers have given talks at high
schools and junior highs, and have set up displays at public
places such as University Mall. The police will have a booth at
Apple Chill this spring, and will talk to freshmen about drunk
driving during orientation next fall..
Although awareness about the dangers of drunk driving and
more vigorous enforcement of DUI laws may heighten
awareness, they will not solve the problem completely, Jarvies
said. "To do that you have to change people's attitudes about
drinking and driving." he said.
He said that the "I'm not going to get caught" attitude is still
quite prevalent, and that as long as such attitudes persist, drunk
driving will be very difficult to stop.
artenders question efficiency
of laws against serving drunks
By J. BONASIA
"It's impossible for a bartender to
know when someone becomes intoxi
cated, " J. Ruffin Bailey, general counsel
for the N.C. Beer Wholesalers.
If passed, the dram shop statute of
Gov. Jim Hunt's, drunken driving legisla
tion would make bar owners and con
venience store operators civily liable for
damages caused by underage or intoxi
cated persons they sell alcohol to.
Enforcement of the law would hinge
on the ability of bartenders to effectively
determine if customers are drunk. But
some bartenders have questioned their
ability to determine drunkenness.
That was the case last Thursday, when
a UNC student with a blood alcohol con
tent of 0.14 percent considered more
than legally drunk in North Carolina
was served alcohol in five Chapel Hill
bars. Not only was he served, but not a
single bartender said he recognized the
student's drunken condition.
"Unless people are stumbling around
or slurring their words, there's no visible
means of knowing that they're intoxica
ted," said one bartender, who asked not
to be named. "And so they get served."
According to a research assistant at the
UNC Center for Alcohol Studies, the stu
dent, Alan Chappie, a senior from
Leesburg, Va., was "substantially im
paired by the alcohol he consumed"
Thursday afternoon. Chappie's measured
blood alcohol content exceeded the legal
ly intoxicated level after he consumed 11
Philip Meyer, UNC Journalism School
professor, said Chappie's easy purchase
of the beers was not conclusive proof that
the dram shop law would be ineffective.
But Meyer did say that it is "strong evi
dence that the incident of bartenders
catching these drunks is quite low,
although we can't be sure just how low."
In its present form, the bill says that
" 'intoxication' means the condition of a
person whose mental or physical func
tioning is presently substantially impaired
- as a result of the use of alcohol."
Jim Drennan, associate professor of
the UNC Institute of Government, said
the general assembly might change the
wording of the bill to read "visibly im
paired" rather than "substantially im
paired." Some bar and convenience store opera
tors have said that the law will shif t the
responsibility of drunk driving from the
drivers to those who sell the alcohol.
"If I owned a gun shop and I sold you
a gun, and then you went home and shot
your wife, would I be responsible for the
murder?" asked one bar owner.
'Our 'dram shop law is sound Dublic
policy," Orange County District At
torney Wade Barber told a legislative
hearing. "It imposes specific respon
sibilities on those given the privilege to
"It is sound public policy to require
those privileged to serve alcohol to carry
insurance to cover the liabilities they may
incur as a result of abuse of that privi
lege," Barber said.
As originally introduced to the General
Assembly, ABC permit holders would be
required to purchase liability insurance
between $100,000 and $300,000.
As part of a compromise package, a
state senate judiciary committee,
however, amended the law, educing the ,
minimum liability insurance to between
$25,000 and $50,000.
Under the compromise, liability would
be extended to state ABC stores. The
burden of proof originally fell to the de
" fendant, but has been shifted to the plain
tiff. The dram shop provision is not a new
idea. It has been used by some 20 states in
"This law is really not the house of
horrors many have made it out to be,"
said Robert G. Byrd, professor in the
UNC School of Law. "Many states have
imposed a dram shop act, and in some

Stolen speech examination
halts class, angers students
By LISA PULLEN
Last Thursday, 250 students in Speech 61 were
assembled in class, preparing to take the first exam
of the semester. Some were hastily flipping through
notes at the last minute, others were sitting quietly,
awaiting for the exam to be distributed.
At 12:30 p.m., students began putting books
and notes away, ready to begin work on the exam.
But instead of handing out the exam, professor
Robert Cox made an announcement to the class.
"We have to talk," Cox, an associate professor
in speech communication, said.
Cox told the class that the test original had been
stolen, from teaching assistant Cori Dauber's per
sonal belongings in her office in Bingham Hall
Wednesday afternoon. What happened next was
an hour of class discussion on the honor system
and what should be done about giving the exam.
"At first, everyone was real calm," senior Trace
Wiren said. "Everyone was just totally quiet when
he was telling us."
Diana Baxter, chairperson of the Graduate Stu
dent Court, spoke to the class at Cox's invitation
about the responsibility of students at UNC to
uphold the Honor Code.
Cox then handed out 250 drop cards to the class,
umung me student wno naa taKen tne exam to
leave the room and drop the class. No one ac
cepted the offer.
Cox also offered to go ahead and administer the
exam, but the students in the class decided that was
unfair, he said.
"The conclusion was that it was really unkosher
to hand out the exam because it would set a prece
dent for others to steal tests," Wiren said.
Cox then left it up to the class to decide what to
do about taking the exam. One student suggested
passing out the exam as a study guide.
"The students in the class objected to that,"
As discussion mounted, students became angrier
and more vocal, Cox said.
"It was a very tense, anguished time," he said.
"They understood it in personal moral ways that
they never have faced before. They no longer felt
inconvenience, but injustice."
The class also expressed sympathy for the
teaching assistants ajid Cox. One TA had stayed
up all night typing the exam, and Dauber had of
fered to resign, Cox said.
"It was emotional almost," Wiren said. "The
reaction was not so much we are mad at that one
person but that we felt sorry for Dr. Cox.
