People for the Ethical Treatment of
Animals (PETA) may award $200 to
anyone who takes a picture depicting
animals in miserable situations in UNC
labs, Ingrid Newkirk, PETA National
Director said Thursday.
"UNC is a huge, vastly funded uni
versity, and the amount of information
disclosed is so paltry. When the Uni
versity gets this defensive, things are
worse than we know.
"There are so many restrictions re
garding entrance to the lab, and there is
secrecy in letting people in to look at
the lab," Newkirk continued. "All indi
cations at UNC show that these folks
have a big problem and know it. It's

cards from restaurants other than
Domino's Pizza, said Chris Derby,
director of the Carolina Dining Serv
ices. On Nov. 1 , area pizza delivery serv
ices will be given information about
possibly contracting with Marriott as
Domino's has for the last year. Restau

Initiative (TDI), and some have be

at their schools.
Lewis sent a letter outlining TDI
to student body presidents at all UNC
system schools asking for their sup
port and input two weeks ago. TDI,
drafted in response to this year's 20
percent in-state tuition increase and
15 percent out-of-state increase, calls
for six provisions:

dates said Thursday at a forum spon

decision on the noise ordinance would
be hard to make, and student input
makes the difference.
Incumbent Art Werner, vying for his
second term, said that he thought the
noise ordinance worked reasonably well
and that the responsibility for the prob
lems and complaints arising now lies
with neighbors respecting each other.
Julie Andresen, also running for her
second term, said she thought creating
"noise zones" with different standards
could solve the problem. "Everyone
needs peace and quiet at some time."
David Pasquini, an incumbent look
ing for his third term, worked on the
noise ordinance committee in 1987.
While they made progress on the ordi

urging student involvement. "You

Bill Thorpe, also a challenger for a
council position, said that dialogue
between community neighbors was
important and that neighbors needed to
watch their noise levels.
Joyce Brown, a newcomer to the
race, said she lived in an older neigh

and found the noise coming from these
houses disturbing. "I think we would
all like to live in peace."
Helen Urquhart, also a newcomer to
the race, said she lived across from the
Chi Psi fraternity house, and when the
members had loud parties, she and her
neighbors took turns every half-hour to
an hour calling the police. She said
students had an obligation to turn down
their music down, noting that non-student
residents complain about the stu

Mayor Jonathan Howes, running
unopposed for his second term, also
attended the forum.
PETA includes the following re
quests in the newsletter:
That UNC allow students and ani
mal protectionists to tour the labs regu
larly; That the labs stop using dogs and
cats from pounds; and
That the labs evaluate the use of
animals and make a commitment to
phase out animal use.
"We are not singling out UNC,"
Newkirk said. The organization has
filed a suit with the University of Ore

Mike Faison, assistant manager of

to take advantage of this opportunity.

help out a lot."
Domino's Pizza will submit a bid for
a second contract term, said Randy
Easter, operations controller for the
Shefter Corporation, which owns the
Domino's franchises in the Triangle.
Easter said he was not upset that other
restaurants were being given the chance
to bid. "I think it's healthy that every

It didn't concern me at all. But this is

McKinley said he would take the case
to a civil court.

said. "We want the University to up

Honor court verdicts to stand

Decisions on summer and fall cases
made by unconfirmed honor court
members will stand, and the lack of
confirmation will not be cause for
appeal, Chancellor Paul Hardin said in
a letter Monday.
"Having reviewed this issue, it is my
judgment that the technical require
ment of Student Congress confirma
tion under these circumstances does
not render any hearing invalid, nor does
it render any judgment reached by such
a court invalid," Hardin wrote to Jef
frey Cannon, assistant dean of students
and judicial programs officer. "Lack of
confirmation under these circumstances
has not materially prejudiced the out
come of these cases."
Cannon said the issue had been re

because the case is still pending.
Richard Richardson, chairman of the
political science department, said that
as of Thursday he had received no word
that McKinley wouldn't be allowed to

Richardson said, but the department

the chancellor reviewed the matter of
past cases. To prevent the issue from
being a future problem, Cannon said, it
would be reviewed by the Committee
of Student Conduct, which would try to
find solutions for the matter.
"I don't think the Instrument (of
Student Judicial Governance) will need
amending," Cannon said. "What's
necessary is a timing change. The
committee will probably change the
guidelines and procedures of the con

Student Congress Speaker Gene
Davis said the issue came up after some
members ofStudent Congress had
reviewed the Instrument closely.
"Confirmation has worked this way in
the past, but it leaves a loophole which
could have forced Chancellor Hardin
to rule against the Instrument. I believe
