Art School audience.

Bobby Bowman does amazing
things with doughnuts.
With a large half-doughnut on the
middle of his head he becomes Mr.
T. A half-doughnut under each eye
and he is a battered, swollen Rocky.
Two doughnut holes on his chest
make him Brooke Shields. And the
audience loves it.
Bowman's comedy routine with
doughnuts earned him first-place
honors at the opening of the third
annual Monday Night Live! talent
show series at the ArtSchool in
Carrboro. Judges chose Bowman
and two other acts, ragtime guitarist
Mike Maguire and jugglercome
dian Eddie Sax, as the top finishers
among the seven acts presented. An
audience of about 100 had the final
say. Bowman received the most ap

"I had friends here and I obvi

The 2 Vi hour MNL! also featured

rock band. Ron Stutts, WCHL ra

Alcohol policy under review
By JAMAL EL-HINDI
Tar Heel Staff Writer
UNC may have a campus-wide alcohol policy in the
fall, but there is still work to be done, Student Body
President Paul Parker said Tuesday.
The need for the policy stems from changes in the
state's laws concerning drinking ages and the Safe
Roads Act, he said.
Parker will begin meeting with Donald Boulton, vice
chancellor and dean of student affairs, Friday to look
over guidelines recommended by the Chancellor's Task
Force on Alcohol. Parker said he expected that he and
Boulton would review the recommendations for one
month before forwarding them to Chancellor Christo
pher C. Fordham III.
The chancellor's task force began work in October,
attempting to unify recommendations from the state
wide University of North Carolina Association of Stu
dent Governments and guidelines submitted by UNC's
own housing committees. James Cansler, associate
chancellor and dean of student affairs, headed the com
mittee, whose report included changes from previous
"The radical change involves the use of student fees
to purchase alcohol," said Mark Stafford, Residence
Hall Association president and former member of the
housing department's alcohol committee. Stafford said
the original guidelines called for a ban oh student fees
appropriated for alcohol purchases. .
The change was made to bring student organization
purchases of alcohol out in the open, Stafford said.
"Technically, student fees are state money," he said.
"And while nowhere is it written that the fees can't be
used to purchase alcohol, university protocol seems to
say that we can never say what we're buying.
"Right nowr we're always hinting at things. You find
receipts for party supplies $50 receipts for one item.
I'd'rather be allowed to say, 'This is a keg of beer, and I
bought it in good faith and dispensed of it legally.' But
right now, protocol gets in the way," he said.
Stafford said the decision of whether student fees
could be "used to purchase alcohol was in Boulton's
hands and would eventually end up with the Board of
"The principal reason that I have for them accepting
the present guidelines is that students will spend fees on
alcohol no matter what," Stafford said. "Legally or il
legally, dorm leaders are going to want to provide what
their fellow students want, which is alcohol."
. If the guidelines are approved, money for alcohol can
be controlled through the Student Activities Fund Of
fice, and the amount of alcohol purchased can be lim
ited by SAFO, Stafford said. Measures such as this
would prevent people from collecting "slush funds" in
dorms for purchasing alcohol, he said.
"But it's just like prohibition in the 30s," he said. "If
they make it illegal to spend fees on beer, then only
criminals will do it. There will be a lot of student out
laws, and we may not know who they are because they
won't be any receipts."
Parker said the overall policy goal would be to comply
with state laws in a realistic manner. "The guidelines are
very realistic," he said. "The committee has done such
an outstanding job that I don't expect too many changes
but that could be totally false."
"Some of the details may change, but the basic thrust
is to reduce the liabilities of students and student
groups," he said.
Another concern that the task force did not address
directly was the issue of off-campus organizations, such
as fraternities and sororities. While they are still obli
gated to comply with state laws, certain groups will re
main removed from University jurisdiction.
