The site of the Smith Center was
sold to the University on the condi
tion that it be used to extend the
School of Public Health or for a
related purpose, according the former
owner of the land, Elizabeth Baity.
But UNC officials deny that such
a promise was ever made.
Baity said last week that a Uni
versity negotiator verbally agreed to
the condition when the land was sold
13 years ago. Baity 's late husband,
Herman Baity, helped found UNC's
School of Public Health.
Baity and her husband sold the
44.9-acre lot, which includes the
Smith Center, the Koury Natatorium,
the Kenan Institute for Private
Enterprise and the surrounding
parking lots, in July 1974.
Joseph Eagles, who began nego
tiations with the Baitys when he was
vice-chancellor for finance at UNC,
said he had no such agreement with
them about the use of the land.

North Carolinians lobbying in
favor of the nomination of Robert
Bork to the Supreme Court have
generated a slew of phone-call and
letter-writing campaigns directed at
the Washington offices of both N.C.
The flow of mail in Democratic
Sen. Terry Sanford's office, described
as steady but not overwhelming by
a Sanford aide, favors the Bork
nomination by a ratio of almost 2-to-1.

Bork, we get f? opposing his

Sanford's press secretary. "That's not

in acquiring the land for the future

Sanford, who is undecided, is
expected to announce his position on
the nomination Wednesday or Thurs

said he wanted the University and the
town to build adequate satellite
parking areas so that commuters

David Bonk, town transportation
planner, said that building satellite
lots would create a need for road
improvements anyway. "Transit
riders are fickle people," he said.

John Davis, Chapel Hill inspec

be installed on the windows of nine
fraternity houses, but that is basically
all that remains to be done.
Town inspectors condemned the
houses in July and August, and have
since re-inspected most of them,
granting extensions for unfinished
"The fraternities look 150 percent
better now than when they first
started," Davis said. "Now it's a safe
place for students to live."
He said the fraternity houses that
still need to install window screens

educating its members about Bork's
failure to uphold rulings on free

rights, said President Robin Davis.
Bork's philosophy would restrict
the Supreme Court's range of issues,
"There is a history (since the 1960s)
of precedent of the court ruling on
issues like abortion and birth control,

Some of these fraternities also have
to complete minor work such as
fixing broken windows and patching
cracks in the walls.
"Nobody is in danger of being put
out of the house," Davis said.
He said he does not know when
all the fraternity houses will be re
inspected. Fraternity brothers at the
Sigma Chi house, for example, will
call him when they determine how
long it will take to make screens to
fit the windows and install them.
The Pi Kappa Alpha house was
inspected Sept. 24 and has a 30-day
extension to put up screens, he said.
But he added, "If they are showing
good faith (by putting up some of
the screens), 111 extend it again."
