Extra paperwork is required
Some clerks decline
By TRACY ADAMS
Staff Writer '
The passage of the Safe Roads Act by the North
Carolina Legislature has created a deluge of paperwork
for the state's county clerks, and some of them have
chosen not to collect fees associated with the new law.
Clerks in 15 counties have decided not to collect cer
tain fees, taking advantage of the law's wording, which
states that either the county clerk or a designated person
would collect them.
The fees apply only to defendants sentenced to do
community service work or to attend the Alcohol and
Drug Education Training School. The fee is $100 if the
defendant is assigned to one program or $50 for each
program if assigned to both. The money goes into the
state's General Fund.
"The clerks felt they just couldn't handle any more
work," said Jim Scarcella, division director of the victim
and justice service office in Raleigh.
In addition to the extra paperwork for the Safe Roads
Act, the clerks were given another responsibility in July
when a new law requiring more procedures for support
payments was passed.

Administrators and students must
unflinchingly begin to fight the structural
and attitudinal elements of racism at
UNC, said Judy Katz, an associate pro
fessor at the University of Oklahoma and
the author of White A wareness: A Hand
book of Anti-Racism Training, at an
"Anti-Racism Workshop" Monday.
"This University is kind of doing some
things on the surface but very little in
depth," Katz said after the seven-hour
seminar, which was sponsored by the
Carolina Union Human Relations Com
mittee. Eighteen students seven members of
the Carolina Union Activities Board, five
members of the sponsoring committee,
four members of the Campus Y, and one
representative each from the Panhellenic
Council and the Student Attorney
General's staff attended the event.
Thirty students, representing about a
dozen campus organizations, had reserv
ed places two weeks in advance for the
The seminar included two projects for
small groups and a videotape of a 1970
ABC news special as well as discussions
of the meaning of racism and its cure.
For the first project, participants form

of an "ideally racist" university. One

Union, Yancey and Watauga counties, Scarcella said.
"All we can do is suggest that the clerks collect, the
fees," said Dallas Cameron, assistant director of the
state Administrative Office of the Courts.
"We can't insist they do something that is not stated
in the state statutes."
In the counties where the clerks have chosen not to
collect the fees, community service coordinators have
been appointed to collect the fees by the department of
crime control and public safety.
Although the clerks can choose not to collect the fees,
they still must fill out all the new forms associated with

County, said, "The forms go along with the processing
of the case, and there was nothing we could do about

decided not to collect the fees was to make the process

the program," Terry said. "Now the coordinator will
collect his own fees and it will cut out one step of the
Terry said the new procedures required more time in
court. "There are several forms that must be signed by
the defendant and the judge, so they need to be com
pleted while both are in the courtroom," Terry said.

"The University of North Carolina is a
racist university," group member Sally
Pont, a sophomore from Northford,
Connecticut, said. "And it's not even
subtle about it."
In the second project, participants
gathered by organizational membership
to formulate action strategies to end
racism within their institutions.

Ex-Met discusses commercials,
displays his low-key humor
By KATHY HOPPER
Marv Throneberry is not your
typical celebrity. He wears the usual
interview costume complete with
navy blue blazer, maroon tie and gray
flannel pants, but he would probably
feel more at home in a New York Mets
"Marvelous Marv" stumbled into
fame. He went into minor league
baseball out of high school and played
for the New York Yankees and Kansas
City. Then, in 1962, he played for the
first Mets team. He was first baseman
for the expansion Mets team and
unexpectedly became the darling of
the fans. He retired in 1964 after 13
years in baseball.
In 1975 Miller Beer brought
Throneberry out of retirement to
advertise a new low-calorie beer,
"I don't know why they asked me
to do this," he said, repeating the line
associated with his low-key style.
Once again Throneberry became
the darling of many fans.
"A New York agency came up with
the idea, and it worked so well that I
used it three different times," he said
with the unassuming charm that
characterizes his commercial ap
pearances. Throneberry said filming the com
mercials was a lot of fun. "We kid
around a lot, pull jokes on each other.
"At the board meeting commercial

that it was nearly 6 p.m. when the session was
completed. The amount of time it takes to complete a
case depends on many things, including the attorneys,
the judge and how a defendant pleads.
"We haven't seen a backlog of work yet," Terry said.
"But it will get worse when we have more DWI cases."
Barbara Blanks is the DWI coordinator for Orange
and Chatham counties, and, like Terry, she expects the
burden of the paperwork associated with the fees to
become a problem once her caseload increases.
The only problem she has had with collecting the
money is that the state office of victims and justice ser
vices does not want her to accept payment in cash, she
said. All payments made in court must be made in cash,
so those people think they are doing the right thing when
they bring cash.
Blanks said she also thought the state was unprepared
for the coordinators to collect the fees and that the
Legislature assumed the clerks would collect them.
Blanks said she was told last week that she had been
designated to collect the fees in Orange County,
although she had been doing it since the middle of Oc
tober. Cameron said he expected most of the clerks to con
tinue collecting the fees. He said he hoped the system for
processing the cases would become smoother and that
some of the clerks not collecting fees now would do so in
around a big table. We were supposed
to be voting on who was the most
popular. Then Lee Meredith, the
blonde, stands up and says, 'We've
got a winner.' She hands the paper to
"Then Bubba Smith, this huge guy
stands up and takes the paper away
from Rodney, crumbles it up and
throws it away, then says, 'The winner
is Bubba Smith.' So on about the
third take. he stands up and says 'the
winner is...' and just stands there. He
forgot his own name. So all of us held
up cue cards saying 'My name is Bub
Throneberry ended the commercial
by saying. "I knew this was a bad
idea." Once again his low-key humor
stole the show.
"If you just sit and watch us shoot
commercials you'd say this is really
gonna be bad. Once they get it back in
the studio and put it all together, it
turns out great."
Throneberry said he frequently met
people who said, "You look familiar.
Oh yeah, you're the one in the com
mercials." "I get recognized more in airports
because people go through airports
looking for people to recognize."
"I get recognized less at home (in
ColUersville, Tenn.). I guess because
everyone expects me to be in New
York or Hollywood."

nessee town working in New York?
He still hasn't figured out why
they asked him to do commercials.
to joint defense

WASHINGTON President Reagan
agreed Tuesday on joint defense
measures with Israel to counter what he
called a growing Soviet threat in the Mid
,dle East, and stood firmly behind a plan
for withdrawal of foreign troops from
Lebanon that Syria is thwarting.
Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir,
ending two days of talks with Reagan,
stressed that the May 17 troop
withdrawal agreement will be im
plemented "in all its parts" despite
Syria's bitter resistance. U.S. officials rul
ed out any move to made the accord more
palatable to Syria.
Thus, the outlook for breaking the
deadlock that has kept Israeli, Syrian and
Palestinian forces in Lebanon remained
dim, as Reagan bade farewell to Shamir
and began preparing for a visit Thursday
by Lebanese President Amin Gemayel.
Reagan said his discussions with
Shamir focused on "the agony of
Lebanon and the threat there to our com
