The Carrboro Board of Aldermen
passed an ordinance Tuesday night that
makes it illegal for joggers to run at night
without wearing reflective gear.
The ordinance, introduced by Alder
man Hilliard Caldwell, specifies that run
ners must wear reflective clothing when
jogging within one half-hour after sunset
to one half-hour before sunrise when they
are within five feet of a roadway. The
reflective material must be able to be seen
at a distance of 200 feet, the same
distance required for bicycles. Offenders
will be subject to a $5 fine.
The board also agreed to instruct the
transportation advisory board to set up a
safety campaign to be held during the fall
to inform residents about the new law
and other aspects of road safety.
James R. Yankaskas, a local jogger
who opposed the ordinance, said the law
would be enforced selectively only in the
case of an accident.
Joyce Garrett, the only alderman to
vote against the ordinance said that she
was concerned about the enforceability of
the law, too. She said that she saw just as
many people walking and asked if the law
would apply to them as well as joggers.
Town Attorney Michael Brough said
that in its current form the law would not
concern walkers and that he did not see
any problem in police discerning walkers
He said that the law would be enforced
somewhat like speeding laws are enforc
ed. "If a motorist is speeding and sees
the police officer, hits the brakes and
slows down before the officer clocks him
then it's just as if he wasn't speeding,"
In other business, the board agreed to
meet in closed session with a Chapel Hill
committee to try to work out an agree
ment concerning proposed thoroughfare
At a meeting Monday night the Chapel
Hill Town Council decided to rescind all
previous decisions they had made on the
plan and instructed Chapel Hill Mayor
Joe Nassif to appoint a special committee
to develop a unified throughfare plan
that would be agreeable to both Chapel
Hill and Carrboro.
The two towns have reached a stand
still in the development of a plan because
they disagree on the extension on Estes
Drive to the proposed 1-40. Carrboro
wants the extension included while
Chapel Hill does not.
Speaks to local supporters
Gilmore confident of primary victory
By TOM CONLON
Stressing issues in the governor's race
based on his recent endorsements,
Democratic candidate Tom Gilmore said,
"We're going to win, and we're going to
win big on May 8th."
Gilmore spoke Wednesday night to 100
people at the Holiday Inn, where he held
a $5-a-person wine and cheese reception.
Also attending the event were Johanna
Ettin, president of the North Carolina
National Organization for Women; John
Gastineau, a candidate for the Orange
County Commissioners; UNC law pro
fessors William Murphy and Daniel
Pollitt, and Joe Straley, former Chapel
Hill town councilman.
Among the 50 students in attendance,
most were from the law school, including
Graduate and Professional Student
Federation President Tom Terrell.
"There's no way we're not going to
win we're right on the issues,"
Gilmore said. "Every organization that

UNC is attempting a new technique to
boost the number of top academic
students entering the University. Attract
ing these students is important, said
Tony Strickland of undergraduate admis
sions. "We did some surveys among better-than-average
students and found four
major reasons why they don't attend
UNC," Strickland said. Lack of an en
gineering department, few non-need bas
ed student loans and scholarships, little
recognition of student accomplishments
and not enough personal contact are the
major stumbling blocks.
And since admissions officials have lit

ships, they decided to tackle the problems
of recognition and personal contact.

Tar Heels top Wake Forest, 8-4
By LEE ROBERTS
Normally a late-season conference vic
tory to gain a tie for first place is cause
for post-game celebrations, but North
Carolina's 8-4 win over Wake Forest
Wednesday in Boshamer Stadium had the
Coach Mike Roberts called a post
game meeting and the players followed
that with a closed-door session of their
own to discuss some team problems.
What's wrong with a team that cracks
17 hits and three home runs in one after
noon? "We're disappointed with the attitude
of the players when they have come to the
park lately," senior infielder Mitch Mc
Cleney said. "We are making way too
many mental mistakes and we shouldn't
be doing that with the quality of players
we have on this team."
Certainly the Tar Heels played well
physically Wednesday, outslugging the
Deacons for their 10th conference victory
of the season to two losses, but a few

Gilmore, who stands at about 6 percent
in recent Democratic gubernatorial polls,
said the polls mean nothing more than
those who pay for them. "I never be
lieved in polls anyway, but tell me if
you've ever seen a poll taken by a candi
date that did not give the result desired.
"A recent poll showed all my op
ponents to have a high percentage of sup
porters who may change their votes,"
Gilmore said. "Ingram was highest with
87 percent, and the others were all over 50
percent. I had 23 percent the most
solid base of support."
Gilmore said people will vote according
to the issues and will see him as a dif

mistakes were evident.
Tar Heel pitchers combined to walk
nine Wake Forest batters, there were a
couple of base running mistakes and a
few plays in which players did not back,
up the correct bases.
After the players' closed-door meeting,
shortstop Walt Weiss, who had four hits
on the game, promised the mental
mistakes will be corrected very quickly.
Like today at 3:00 against Liberty Bap
tist. "A lot will change," Weiss said. "You
will see a lot of hustling out there. We are
a real good team and we won't fall
because our heads aren't; in the game.
We'll be ready to play tomorrow."
One encouraging fact, Weiss said, is
that North Carolina was talented enough
to defeat Wake Forest despite the fact
that it was not at the top of its game.
Weiss started a torrid hitting day for
the Tar Heels in the first inning by doubl
ing to left-center field and stealing third. ,

said, adding that the band's newer songs
were a little heavier.

time to write some new songs.
