If the "squealer law" regarding contraceptives is
enforced beginning Wednesday, it will result in in
creased risks to the health of teen-agers and bring
an end to the confidentiality between patient and
physician, local health officials said.
In 1981, Congress approved an administrative
regulation requiring minors who purchase con
traceptives from federally funded clinics to have
parental permission. Challenges by family plann
ing clinics and decisions against the regulation
from two federal judges have prevented enforce
ment of the law. The Justice Department plans to
appeal both court rulings.
Janet Coin, director of Planned Parenthood of
Orange County, said if the rule is enforced the big
gest danger is that sexually active teen-agers will
stop seeking birth control.
"We've done surveys and only 1 percent of the
teen-agers said they would seek birth control,"
Coin said. "Half said they would stop using birth
control if their parents must know," she said.
Both Coin and Jerry Robinson, director of the
Orange County Health Department, agreed that if
the regulation is put into effect, a rise in early teen
age pregnancies and high-risk births will occur.
"Teen-age mothers are more likely to have com
plications and two times more likely to die," said
In the first year of life, the death rate for infants
born to teen-age mothers is twice that of children
born to women in their 20s. Also babies of teenage
mothers are likely to be born premature, Coin
Robinson and Dr. Mary Jane Gray,
gynecologist for the Student Health Service, said
that fewer teen-agers will consult agencies about
methods of birth control.
"There will be fewer consultations," Robinson
said. "When word hits the streets that parents
must know, teen-agers may think just consulting is
part of that process."
Also, fewer teen-agers will consult health agen
cies about sexually transmitted diseases, which by
state law can be treated without parental notifica-,
tion. Gray said
Most importantly, health officials said, the
regulation will erode the trust between local teen
agers and local health officials.
Robinson said that this trust is important
because some parents might physically abuse their
daughters if they discover that she is pregnant or
All of the health officials interviewed said they
believed the law is unnecessary because girls who
seek contraception show great responsibility.
"Most minors, if they seek contraception, have
made an adult decision," said Mary Ann
Popovich, nursing supervisor for the Orange
County Health Department.
None of the officials expect the regulation to
pass and they are fighting hard to see that it
"We will attempt to keep it tied up in court as
long as humanly possible or have the courts put
pressure on the Reagan administration to
withdraw it," Robinson said.
If the regulation is implemented, Gray said she
hopes teen-agers will turn to private agencies and
physicians for contraceptives.

Carrboro Mayor Robert Drakeford is
scheduled to meet with the N.C. League of

Results of a special audit of Chapel

the town's police and fire departments.
Drakeford said the review would not be
an audit, but rather an organizational
study of the town.
Drakeford said he would gather as
much information as possible at his
meeting with the N.C. League of
Municipalities and report back to the

then decide whether the town should have
a review, and if so, whether the League of

Carrboro was well-managed, although he

Dramatic endeavors aren't restricted to
the department of dramatic art at UNC.
Moonstones, a movie made by the
School of Medicine, will have its formal
debut in New York in May at the annual
convention of the American Psychiatry
The 80-minute movie, which is about
the problems a psychiatrist fresh out of
medical school has with his first patient,
explores the roles of doctor and friend
which the young resident must play in
order to treat his patient.
Moonstones was written and scored by
Dr. Donald C. Fidler. Fidler, an assistant
professor of psychiatry in the UNC School
of Medicine, supervises the making of
educational videotapes and films.
"I started writing this movie in Vermont
in February of '81," Fidler said. "I fin
ished a month later in Disney World."
Fidler said the movie is based on in
cidents similar to the occurences in the
Fidler said he wants the movie to
cultivate discussion. "The movie shows
bad aspects of psychiatry so people can
discuss what can be better. It is not a pro
motion; it really shows psychiatry being
Chapel Hill provides various back
grounds for the movie, as well as many of
the film's extras.
The leading roles are played by Trey
Porto, a young local actor, and Carl Blyth
Jr., a professional actor from the Actor's
Group of Washington, D.C. Blyth is the
son of UNC physical education professor

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia Six Persian Gulf oil-producing na
tions facing a possible worldwide price war called an emergency
meeting for today and a Saudi newspaper said they planned
rollbacks of up to $7 a barrel.
The state-run Saudi Press Agency said ministers at the Saudi
, led Gulf Coordination Council would meet in Riyadh to discuss
"current trends in the petroleum market" because of price reduc
tions by Nigeria, Britain and Norway.
A price war would benefit consumers in the United States
because each $1 drop in the price of a barrel of crude oil
represents a 2!2-cent drop at the gasoline pump. But major
reductions in prices would hurt Third World oil producers, which
rely on petroleum sales to pay off their foreign debts to Western
Nigeria, whose oil minister is chairman of the Organization of
Petroleum Exporting Countries, broke with OPEC policy Sunday
and announced a $5.50 price cut to $30 a barrel.
That' announcement came after Britain and Norway, non
OPEC producers, dropped prices to $30.50 a barrel for North Sea
crude, Nigeria's main competitor in the European oil market.
In Mexico, also outside OPEC, the state oil monopoly Pemex
said it was conducting "a new round" of negotiations with its
customers and would announce official prices no later than Fri
day. Mexico's price for its lighter crude has been $32.50 a barrel
since it was reduced from $35 last March 1, 1982.
OPECs basic price is $34 per barrel. Analysts have said the
once-mighty 13-nation cartel must reduce that price to remain
competitive in a world market glutted with oil. Such a cut would
be the first in the organization's 22-year history.
The authoritative Saudi newspaper Asharq al Awsat reported
that the ministers from the Gulf Coordination Council Saudi
Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and
Oman will announce price cuts of between $5.50 and $7 per
barrel "to maintain competitive levels after the North Sea and
Nigerian reductions." It did not say when the cuts would take ef
fect. In Vienna, , where OPEC has its headquarters, the
organization's news agency quoted Nigerian Oil Minister Alhaji
Yahaya Dikko, the OPEC chairman, as saying his government
cut prices out of "national interest."
"We believe we have taken the right decision at the right mo
ment," he was quoted as saying in a report from the Nigerian
capital of Lagos.
The Saudi announcement of the emergency meeting was
preceded by hours of uncertainty over whether the Riyadh parley
would be confined to the four OPEC members of the Gulf Arab
group or include Oman and Bahrain as well.
Saudi sources said the official announcement that the entire
council would meet clearly indicated a price cut is planned.

The "Rude Boys" have once again proved
UNCs 1983 College Bowl team defeat
ed Duke twice in Sunday's competition at
N.C. State to capture the first-place
regional College Bowl title.
In the original regional competition held
in Knoxville, Tenn., on Feb. 12 and 13,
Duke and Carolina tied in the double elim
ination tournament, each having one loss.
Under normal circumstances, a deciding
match would have been held at that time,
but the officials ran out of packets con
taining College Bowl questions.
Consequently,, Carolina and Duke had
to postpone their duel until Sunday.
In what was scheduled to be the best of
a two-oui-ui-inree game competition, the
"Rude Boys" did away with Duke in the
first match 355-225 and in the second
round of action 300-125.
Jon Wike, Blair Haworth, Ron Black,
Chad Russell and Seth Katz all played ex
ceptionally well, said Julie Chiu, Union
College Bowl coordinator.
"It was really gratifying to win the
regionals after last week," Chiu said.
Whether there will be a national College
Bowl competition is indefinite because of
lack of financial backing, Chiu said.
"Should there be a competition, we've
definitely won the right to be there," she
Until this year. Time, Inc. had spon
sored the national College Bowl tourna
ment in which UNC won first place in
At this point, there is no sponsor for the
competition as a result of Time having
dropped their backing. Consequently,
there will be no national championship in
1983 unless the financial problem is solved.
It is possible, however, that UNC may
compete in a small invitational to be held
at N.C. State March 26.
UNC, N.C. State, Duke, Davidson and
Wake Forest are scheduled to participate
in the tentative tournament.
"Should there be a national champion
ship, we've qualified for it and we'll be
ready," Wike said.
The future of the national champion
ship as well as the opportunity for the con
tinued success of the "Rude Boys" will be
decided before spring break, Chiu said.
