Now issues its own plastic card
New IDs force procedure change by SHS
By KEITH BRADSHER
University ID cards issued to new students this year have
a different look.
The cards have typed names and social security num
bers, not embossed.
But the change has forced Student Health Services to
issue its own plastic card with the student's name and ID
number in raised letters and digits. SHS needs an em
bossed card because it uses a device like a charge plate to
record students' names and social security numbers for
X-rays, lab specimens and in-patient information sheets.
The new ID cards were adopted largely because they
can be made in 10 minutes because they are manufactured
on the spot by University personnel, said David L.
Golden, director of the equipment and technical services
division of the University's Media and Instructional Sup
port Center. In past years, it took six to eight weeks to ob
tain a card.
The typed cards were first issued in October as
replacements for lost ID cards. This year's freshman class
is the first to be completely outfitted with the new IDs.
SHS did not actively oppose the move but would have
preferred that the Media Center delay the move a couple
of years until SHS had switched to a computer system
which would not require embossed cards, said SHS ad
ministrative manager Sheila Sturdivant.
The extra card has cost SHS $2,000 so far for. the rental
of an embossing machine, the purchase of 14,000 blank
cards, and the hiring of three temporary employees to
issue the cards to freshmen for two weeks, Sturdivant
said. Because SHS cards will be needed by upperclassmen
getting replacement ID cards, SHS will pay $3,000 a year
to rent the embossing machine.
The Media Center issued the first SHS cards to avoid
confusion. SHS reluctantly took over the task of issuing
the cards at the end of this summer. "We were told that
they would no longer do it and that we would have to,"
Student Health Services has not had a problem with
students failing to bring their SHS cards, Sturdivant said.
The University library system and the physical educa
tion department supported the change because of dissatis
faction with the temporary identity cards issued to stu
dents waiting for their permanent cards, said Lee U.
Howe, photo lab manager.
The library circulation computers could not use the
temporary cards, forcing librarians to check out books
manually. The absence of photos on the temporary cards
also created problems with athletic tickets, Howe said.
"There are no pictureless IDs now," he said. "Every
body has positive ID."
In the new process for ID cards the student's name and
social security number are typed on the card, the card is
signed by the student, a photo is taken and affixed, and
the whole card is laminated.
The different process solves many of the problems the
University had with the old process. The signature should
not wear off because it is now protected by the lamina
tion. The new process also is cheaper than the old one. "It's
keeping costs in line," Golden said. Capital expenditures
for the equipment required by the new process were paid
for over the last three years out of ID fees, he said.
The new card also is more durable and is readable in
poor light, Howe said.
The next change in University identity card formats will
come in a couple of years, Golden said. Computer bar
codes similar to those on many grocery products will be
placed on the back of ID cards for use by campus com
puters, particularly in the libraries.
Identity cards will no longer have the holes used by the
present library computers, making the cards more dur
able, Golden said.

Lebanese army troops backed by tanks
and artillery swept into west Beirut in three
columns Wednesday and seized key neigh

militiamen in house-to-house combat.
The government radio said the army re

city, either from Syrian-held positions out
side the city or Lebanese army batteries.
Police said 18 civilians were killed and
49 wounded in the fourth day of fighting
around Beirut. State radio quoted
Lebanese army sources as saying 21
soldiers were killed and 87 wounded in
clashes Wednesday. The army said it cap
tured 50 militiamen, including seven
Palestinians and four Syrians.
The deaths brought the casualty toll in
the fighting that began Sunday to 94
killed, including two U.S. Marines, five
French soldiers and 42 Lebanese soldiers.
The wounded totalled 413, including 14
Marines, seven French soldiers, three
Italian troops and 176 Lebanese soldiers.
The Americans, French and Italians are
part of an international peacekeeping
force in Beirut.
Police said the shelling on Wednesday
heavily damaged apartment houses and
stores and destroyed about 500 cars.
Among, the damaged dwellings was a
house owned by Prime Minister Shafik
Wazzan in the Moslem Basta neighbor

statement issued in Damascus. "On the
one hand they send their army to kill and
butcher the Moslems of west Beirut and on
the other, they invite us for a dialogue just

Nabih Berri, leader of the largest Shiite
militia group, Amal, denounced sending
the army into west Beirut and appealed to
Arab heads of state to halt "the massacre
of Moslems in Beirut."
Gemayel, a Christian, is allied with the
dominant rightist Phalange Party, and his
army is Christian-led, although made up
largely of Moslem troops.

An investigation of the stabbing is continuing,
Carrboro elections draw near: still no candidates
By TRACY ADAMS
Editor's Note: This is the second of a two-part
preview of the upcoming municipal elections. To
day's story looks at elections in Carrboro.
Three seats on the six-member Carrboro Board
of Aldermen and the mayor's office will be up for
election in November, but no candidates have of
ficially announced their intentions to seek the of
fices. Seats held by incumbent board members Steve
Rose, Ernie Patterson and John Boone and Mayor
Robert Drakeford are up for election.
Rose and Drakeford announced earlier this year
that they would not seek re-election.
Rose, elected to the board in 1979,. had voted
with the liberal Carrboro Community Coalition in
the past. Rose said he would not run because he
wanted to spend more time with his family.
Drakeford said he felt it was time for someone
else to take over the job as mayor. He added that he
had accomplished most of the goals he set when he
took the office six years ago. Drakeford had
previously served one term on the Board of Alder
men. Patterson has not reached a decision about seek
ing re-election, and his decision is expected in two
Boone, a 12-year member of the board, said he
will either seek a board seat or the Mayor's seat.
Boone, assistant purchasing director at UNC, said
he expects to make a decision by mid-September.
"I've worked the whole time for an open and
honest government," Boone said. "I think the peo
ple of Carrboro feel they can come to Town Hall
and be heard."
Boone, who usually votes with the conservative
Association for a Better Carrboro, said that people
in Carrboro, including students, were represented
fairly on the board.
The current board has made strides in appointing
students to town boards and commissions, Boone
Another potential mayoral candidate, Jim Proto,
an independent, hopes to bring the two factions
closer together. Although not an elected represen
tative, Proto has served as chairman of the Carr
boro Appearance Commission and is a member of
the Mayor's Task Force on Economic Develop
ment. "I'm definitely interested in the position," Proto
said. "I'm looking at all the possibilities. It takes a
lot of hard work to win and commitment to the
Proto, a management consultant to government
and private enterprise, said he was interested in
three main areas: quality of living, economic
development and efficient government.
No clear issues have been raised in the elections.
Alderman Hilliard Caldwell, elected in 1981, said
the construction of multi-family apartments in
residential areas may be an issue in the next few
months. Caldwell also said that voters will want
signs of progress, like the construction of shopping
centers and apartment complexes, to continue.
Drakeford, Rose and Patterson are aligned in the (
coalition. The other faction, the ABC, pulls a

Water restrictions near as
lake level continues to fall
By MARK STINNEFORD
Mandatory water restrictions, expected to be
imposed throughout Orange County this week,
could last for the rest of the year, the director of
the local water utility said Wednesday.
"We could very well be entering mandatory
conservation for the rest of the year unless there
is an unusual storm event which would provide
substantial rainfall," said Everett Billingsley,
executive director of the Orange Water and
University Lake, the main source of water for
Chapel Hill, was 45 Vi inches below full
Wednesday and dropping about one inch per
day, Billingsley said.
In accordance with local ordinances,
OWASA will ask for mandatory controls when
the lake level reaches 48 inches below full, he
Billingsley said he expects to ask for such con
trols on Friday.
The measures would ban the washing of cars
and limit the watering of lawns and gardens to 4
p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays. Water-cooled air
conditioners could not be used except for health
and safety reasons. Water could not be served in
restaurants except by request.
Local police officials would enforce conserva
tion measures and fines would be imposed for
The Chapel Hill Police Department is making
plans to enforce the expected restrictions,
Master Officer Greg Jarvies said. Violators
would probably be warned the first time they
were caught committing an offense, Jarvies
Mandatory water restrictions were last impos
ed in 1977. Very few violations were reported at
that time, Jarvies said.
Farris Womack, vice chancellor for business
and finance, said he saw no need for the Univer
sity to add enforcement measures oi u own.
"The people we have here are responsible
people," Womack said. "Students will comply
with the law just like other citizens."
Womack said he could not speculate whether
an especially serious water level could force the
University to close.
Despite the continued drop in the level of
University Lake, voluntary conservation
measures requested by OWASA have had some
effect, Pat Davis, systems development
manager for OWASA said.
Even with the return of students to UNC,
local water consumption has remained relatively
constant at 6.7 to 6.9 million gallons per day,
When the University reopens for the fall
semester, water consumption typically rises by
400,000 to 1 million gallons per day, Davis said.
Davis credits the voluntary restrictions with
offsetting the effect of the students' return.
The voluntary restrictions include restricting
showers to four minutes, restricting car washing
and limiting the use of dishwashers and washing
OWASA hopes to cut total consumption by
25 percent, reducing daily use to about five
million gallons per day, Davis said. In the past,
mandatory clamps have resulted in a savings of
20 to 25 percent in water consumption, he said.
"We expect we'll be able to ride this out until
the rains come," Davis said.
UNC students will be a vital part of any water
conservation effort, Billingsley said.
"The students have been very responsive in
the past years to the call to conserve water,"
Billingsley said. "We expect they will continue
In conjunction with the mandatory restraints,
OWASA will undertake a media blitz, urging
both institutional and residential customers to
save water, Davis said. Every OWASA
customer will receive a letter detailing the
restraints and giving water conservation hints.
