Concert lawsuit debated
By DA TREVOR ' ,l
Tar Heel Staff Writer . .
In response to a proposed lawsuit against CaroKna Concert for Children Chairman Ben Lee,
Dwain Wilson, chairman of the band selection advisory committee, said Tuesday that last
semester's ill-fated concert "lost money because it rained, not because of mismanagement."
After a Campus Governing Council meeting last week, Student Affairs Committee Chairman
Rebel Cole said he planned to sue Lee on the

grounds of violating his entrusted duty as
chairman of the 1983 concert.
"I think the judge will laugh this thing out
of court, but I doubt it will even get that far,"
Wilson said. "If Rebel keeps pursuing this, I
think he is going to lose his credibility as a
Cole said he is acting of his own accord in
his plans to sue Lee, charging that Lee acted
irresponsibly with student money from the
general reserve. Cole found fault with the con
cert tickets' printing and distribution, and he
questioned the decision not to purchase rain
"Lee should have bought $80,000 in rain in
surance, which would have cost us $8,000 to
$10,000," Cole said. But he said Lee's com
mittee never even held a meeting to consider it.
Furthermore, Cole said the concert would not
. have been approved if Lee had not promised
to get rain insurance.
Wilson said the option of purchasing rain
insurance was, in fact, considered, but that a
meeting was not required specifically by CGC
law. "The way (CGC law BF 64-65) is worded,
it does not say that we have to call a meeting
we were supposed to consider- it," Wilson
In a brief interview from his home in Ohio
Saturday evening, Lee declined to discuss the

Concert funds are
unfrozen to pay
Carolina Concert for Children Trea
surer Anthony Hughes said concert funds
were unfrozen Wednesday afternoon at a
meeting between Hughes and . Campus
Governing Council Finance Committee
Chairman Jack Mohr.
Hughes said he has about 25 bills yet to
be paid, including those of the physical
plant, the Athletic Association, Pizza
Transit Authority and the Coca Cola Co.
Those bills can now be paid.
Representatives from Coca Cola called
Dean Boulton twice, and they are the only
ones pressing to be paid, Hughes said.
"We owe PTA $180, and they owe us mon
ey. We were supposed to get a percentage
of the profits from the pizza slices sold.
We owe them because we thought we'd
spend $60 to feed the tech crew, the moni
tors and the policemen. We apparently
had to order more pizza due to the fact
that non-staff members were eating
The problem with paying the bills arose
when concert funds were frozen May 13.

Elderhostei lway 'to enjoy retirement
By CB GAINES
Tar Heel Staff Writer .
They drove here from Hollywood, Fla., Pittsburgh
and New York. This week UNC is playing host to 26
unusual hostelers. Unusual because they are all over 60
and they are here to take classes.
The program is called Elderhostei, a non-profit or
ganization which provides week-long series of classes
at 634 universities and educational institutions across
the United States and in nine other countries. There
are 18 campuses in North Carolina participating in the
Elderhostei is run in North Carolina through the
Division of Continuing Education and has been at
UNC since 1976, only one year after the program
began in New Hampshire. The participants pay $180
for room and board (breakfast and lunch at the Pine
Room and dinner at the Chi Omega House) and must
attend at least one of the three courses offered from
8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. There is no required home
work. At orientation in Spencer Dorm Sunday, the profes
sors presented their topics.
"I like teaching Elderhostei," said Walter Spear
man, journalism professor for 43 years at UNC. He
began teaching Elderhostei in 1978 but did receive
some negative feedback last year on his course, Books
and Ideas. Some students throught some books were
over priced and contained too much sex." To remedy
the situation, this summer he will discuss some paper
backs (including The Right Stuff by Tom Wolfe and
Pathfinders by Gail Sheehy and a how-to book titled
How to Live to be 100).
In introducing his course, Social Security: How
Secure Is It?, Andrew Dobelstein, professor at, the
School of Social Work, said, "While Walter (Spear
man) will be telling you about sex and how to live to
100, I'll help you worry about having enough money
to do it."
Melinda Meade, assistant professor at the depart
ment of geography, taught at Elderhostei last year and
said, "I came back for some more. (Elderhostei is)
such a different group of people; a lot of fun to work
Elderhostelers come from wide and varied back
grounds: small businessmen, educators, lawyers, sec
retaries. They come from big cities like Chicago, New
York, Minneapolis and small ones such as Longmont,
Colo., Valparaiso, Ind. and Hattiesburgh, Miss. But
this week there is not a single Tar Heel participating.

approves DWI bill
By MICHAEL TOOLE
Tar Heel Staff Writer " '
North Carolina's new drunken driving law passed last Thursday by
the General Assembly '-'will have a significant impact upon students
and non-students alike" when it goes into effect Oct. I, said David
Kirkman, an attorney with Student Legal Services.
The law, praised by federal officials and Gov. Jim Hunt as Ameri
ca's toughest, will raise the legal drinking age for beer and wine to 19
and create a new charge driving while impaired that will make it
harder to plea bargain by eliminating lesser offenses such as careless
and reckless driving after drinking.
Kirkman, who attended a workshop on the bill's ramifications,
said the law will make it possible for drivers to be arrested and con
victed for driving while impaired after having only one or two drinks.
Previously, police officers made a judgment on whether they thought
a driver had consumed enough alcohol to be found legally drunk at
least .10 blood alcohol content.
Because of this provision, students and others pulled for a possible
DWI offense should be cordial and perform any tests requested by a
police officer, but they should respectfully refuse to discuss what they
have been doing or how much they have had to drink, Kirkman said.
"One of the first things an officer will ask you is how much you
