of doiible DU I charges

, Chapel Hill police have reported three incidents of double
driving-under-the-influence arrests in the past month; but the
double arrests were not the, result of flaws in the Chapel Hill
Police Department's arrest procedure for DUI, according to
Master Officer Gregg E. James, v : f
A double DUI arrest results when a person is arrested for DUI
and later released on bond. If the offender returns to his car after
the arrest and drives again, he can be arrested a second time in the
same night, said Jarvies, who heads the department's DUI pro
gram. -:; -;,' . -r ; v';i; --'', y - ' :
- The first arrest involved an 18-year-old Chapel Hill resident and
occurred in the Estes Drive-Airport Road area. The second arrest
occurred on March 30 on East Rosemary Street and involved a
49-year-old Durham man. t: ,
On April 15 a 19-year-old UNC sophomore was arrested by
police on Merritt Mill Road just after 1 a.m. After being given a
Breathalyzer test and charged with DUI, the offender was re
leased. He later received a second DUI citation again on Merritt
Mill Road about 3 a.m. Jarvies said that a friend picked the driver
up at the station, but that he drove him down the road a little and
let him out so he could get back to his car.
. "We never release DUI's on their own recognizance," he said.
"If they get a second DUI, it's not our fault because we require
someone to come pick them up." Chapel Hill police require a cus
todian, who must possess a N.C. driver's license and be able to
prove that the DUI offender is sober.
"If a person is cited for a second DUI, it is usually because the
custodian did not make sure that his charge got home all right,"
. Magistrate H.B. Hackney said the custodian is not charged in
any way if the offender is arrested again for DUI. He said the of
fender will usually sign a release which states that he recognizes
that the custodian is only responsible for taking him home and
seeing that he appears in court.
Jarvies said that when a person is stopped for DUI, he is taken
to the Chapel Hill Police Department and given the Breathalyzer
test. Then he is taken to the magistrate who sets a $200 unsecured
bond. This means that no cash is exchanged, but if the offender
does not appear in court, then the custodian must pay the money.
Jarvies said that for the first DUI arrest, the offender's car may
be left where it is if it does not create a traffic hazard. But if a
police officer later sees an offender approach his car, he has the
authority to prevent him from operating it, he said.
"Our job is prevention we wouldn't wait for the offender to
drive and therefore violate the.law again," Jarvies said. With a
double DUI arrest, the vehicle is definitely towed to the police sta
tion where it is locked up behind a fence. The defender may keep
his keys, but he can't get to his car unless an officer unlocks the
The offender must also get a release order which usually states
that the vehicle will not be released until 9 a.m. the next day. If a
person blows a .15, the vehicle will be held about 8 to 12 hours,
A second DUI is treated as a separate charge by the police, but
the bond is raised so that it is tougher to be released, Jarvies said.
"The bond is raised to $1,000 and is changed to secured," he
said. "Even if the offenderhas the money in cash or a property
deed for that amount on him, a custodian must still come in to
sign for him." x .
Assistant District Attorney Carl Fox said the charges in a dou
ble DUI depend on the facts of the case. The charges will usually

lacking in minority hiring
By MONT ROGERS
The UNC School of Education will con
sider revisions in its Affirmative Action
policy following a report from the Com
mittee on Black Faculty that labeled the
school and five other departments as .
"problematic" in their minority employ
ment. New recommendations drawn up by an
Affirmation Action committee in the
School of Education suggest that all areas
of the school have at least one minority
professor in the next five to 10 years, said
Barbara Day, professor of education and
the school's Affirmative Action officer.
There are 13 areas in the School of
Education, and each area is a different'
program in the school, Day said.
The committee, which consists of Day
and three other faculty members from the
School of Education, will review its
recommendations and then send them to
the dean and faculty of the school for ap
proval, Day said. ;
Day said the recommendations state
that the School of Education has a larger
hiring pool to draw from than other
departments of the University and that the
school should reaffirm its commitment to
Affirmative Action is the practice of en
suring that minorities and women receive
positions in areas of employment they are
usually excluded from. The practice began
with the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Day said the recommendations include:
Asking each area in the School of
Education to submit a program outlining
the area's needs for the next five to 10
years. The program would be constructed
so that each area would have at least one i
minority faculty member. Day said she

The School of Education, along with six
other departments in the University, was
listed in a report submitted to the Faculty
Council by the Committee on Black Facul

areas of minority employment.

and physical education, the schools of

hampered by a small pool of qualified
minorities from which to hire.
"It's not because we haven't been active
in all phases of it (Affirmative Action),
because we have," said John H. Schopler, :
chairman of the department of
psychology. "The number of: qualified
blacks we can identify is very low."
He said that was the sole reason there
are few minorities in his department.
Edward G. Holley, dean of the School
of Library Science, said the size of the hir
. ing pool was the reason that his depart
ment has no black faculty members.
"It's very hard to recruit black faculty
in the School of Library Science," he said.
' According to the report of the Commit
tee on Black Faculty, there were 13 doc
torates awarded to blacks in library science
between 1979 and 1981.
"I'm very dubious that 13 blacks got
doctorates in library science from the years

who do get a doctorate do not gq into

Maranatha Ministries stirring controversy

The amplifiers send the melody of the
guitar drifting through the room. One
child casually wanders around the room,
oblivious to the rise and fall of rhythmic

tries, absorbed in the music, stretch their
arms high and gaze toward the ceiling.
As the song ends, low voices murmur
sighs and mumble private praises to the
"Praise you, Lord. Alleluia, Lord,"
Dennis Darville, Maranatha pastor, says.
"Praise you, my God. Your name is as
ointment, oh Lord." , v
Then, the guitar strikes up the familiar
Sunday school hymn and everyone joins
in singing, "Yes, Jesus loves me. The Bi
ble tells me so."
Maranatha Ministries, which ! was
established on campus in 1981, has
"stirred controversy among church
Robert Weiner established the group
nationally in 1972 after his involvement
with Campus Crusade in California.
Since then, Maranatha has grown
from a drug counseling center in
Paducah, Ky., into a church with 67
campus ministries in the United States
and about 22 ministries in other coun
The name Maranatha originates from
the Greek prayer in 1 Corinthians 16:22,
which means "Our Lord come.'-'
Maranatha' s teachings are based. on
the infallibility of the Bible. "The Bible is
not open to interpretation, but is written
to be obeyed," said Darville, who jis of
ten seen on campus preaching in the Pit.
"People are trying to adjust God to
make him a convenient-type thing,"
Darville said". "We're very long-suffering
with people, but we don't excuse sin.
God doesn't; He expects sin to be repent
ed on; then, it can be forgiven. As far as
altering God's law goes, forget it." "
Darville said certain descriptions of
Maranatha were accurate. Maranatha is
fundamental in that members believe in
the infallibility of scripture and is evan
gelical in that they believe that to be a
Christian, one must be spiritually "bom
again," he said. y
. Even charges that Maranatha is mili
tandy charismatic do not bother Dar
, ville. "Christianity is not an alternative,"
he said. "It is the only life. It is the only
- Maranatha's teachings emphasize that
drinking, using drugs and daring are sins.
The tenet against dating is the most con
troversial of Maranatha's beliefs.
"We just don't do it the world's
. way," Darville said. Any plan which
subjects people to the possibility of being
hurt, broken-hearted, emotionally
scarred, rejected and sexually defiled can
certainly never have originated from the
heart of God. .
"The Bible speaks to every area and is
not silent to the principles of relation
ships," Darville said. "Men and women
should treat each other like brothers and
sisters. , We're not into this one-on-one
thing whereby people enjoy the privileges
of marriage without being married."
Maranatha has a commitment form
that members sign, and a Statement of
Covenant of the Maranatha Church.
The Statement of Covenant reads in
part: "I therefore commit: In the area of
my finances and material possessions,
my abundance is available to supply
other's needs." ..
The covenant also says that all things
operating in the member's life will be
watched over and directed to building
the Kingdom of God.
' Darville said there was a requirement
for members to, give 10 percent of the
money they earned to the church as
tithes, or offerings. He emphasized that
the offerings did not include money
given to students by parents for expenses..-
' - '-: ' V
Maranatha's ideological stance , has
caused varied reactions among leaders of
organized religions in Chapel Hill, many
in response to words and actions of
Maranatha members, v
"They have very little appreciation for
the diversity in the Christian family,"
said the Rev. Peter Lee of Chapel of the
Cross. "They require a kind of allegiance
' that does not require much critical think
ing. Most mainstream churches do."
The Rev. Thomas Downing of Uni
versity Baptist Church also was con
cerned that Maranatha did not allow
much individual freedom about religious
convictions. "Anything to the extreme
left or right that makes life simple with
formulas can be dangerous," he said.
The Rev. Tim O'Connor of Newman
Catholic Student Center said he first
became concerned about Maranatha '
when parents told him their son had
dropped out of school to join Mara
natha's ministry. The student had under-4
gone two days of deprogramming, which
failed, O'Connor said. "He totally aban
doned an academic scholarship. What
does this cult offer that established
religion does not? "
Darville disagreed with Maranatha be
ing labeled a cult. "Anything they don't
understand, they call a cult," he said.
Contrary to Maranatha's beliefs and
practices, cults deny Jesus is God, they
usually have another book and they are
man-centered, Darville said. .
"My impression is they (Maranatha)
are quite highly structured and make
very strict demands on those involved in
their ministry," said the Rev. Jim '
Abramson of Chapel Hill Bible Church.
"They place a big emphasis on speaking
', in tongues and becoming involved in a
Pentecostal style of ministry.
"They're going to make demands on
people that will be misunderstood or
unhealthy for certain people. It's a mat
ter of each group being sensitive to in
dividual needs," he said. "But, it's not
fair to say that, across the board, this is a

A representative of. Spiritual Counter
feits, a California-based organization
that researches religious groups, said
Maranatha members believed God
would instruct each man and woman
whom to marry, and then they would
consult the elders of the church.
"Because there's such a strong follow
ing for authority, the member does not
evaluate things on his own but seeks to
please that authority figure," the repre
Darville said there was nothing mys
tical about marriages within Maranatha.
"It's not this hit-and-miss stuff," he
said. "God births a sincere affection and
k love down in your heart about a specific
person. God wants to be Lord of every
area, including your relationships."
Priscilla Coates, director of Gtizen's
Freedom Foundation, also cited Mara
natha's rigid centers of authority as a

Thomas Briggs, former president of
the campus chapter, said Maranatha
members have an idealism and an en
thusiasm about God. "I feel like they
give you the means to grow in the Lord
as fast as you want to," Briggs said. "I
didn't feel pressure.

Maranatha," he said. "I didn't find that
any demands were placed on me at all.

"They encourage you to have fellow
ship and develop close friendships with
people in the ministry," said Gill Berger.
"But, Dennis (Darville) has always
pressed for high academic standards." ,
Berger said members were not re
quired to attend Maranatha meetings if
they needed to study.
, "When you get committed to Marana

groups," Berger said. "When you know
