Balloting begins today for the eighth
annual distinguished teaching awards
given by the University. Any
undergraduate student or fulltime
faculty member may vote.
Previously, ballots were mailed to a
limited number of students and faculty
The selection process has been
changed to provide more student and
faculty input, said Dr. Joel J. Schwartz,
chairman of the Student-Faculty
, Committee on Distinguished Teaching
"The undergraduate and full-time
faculty population here produce a
potential nominating committee of
more than 1 ,500 people," Schwartz said.
"In past years we have received only five
to six hundred ballots.'".
This year the selection committee has
placed nominating ballots in six central
campus locations the Undergraduate
library, the Union, Chase Cafeteria, the
YMCA, the Health Sciences Library
and the South Building information
By this distribution system, Dr.
Schwartz says he hopes publicity for the
awards will increase, and the cost of
printing, addressing and mailing will be
Schwartz said making the ballots
available to a larger number of people in
the university community is a good way
to provide a feedback system to the
faculty, especially from students.
He said the lack of communciation
between faculty and students is one of
the worst problems at a large university.
In an effort to increase feedback, this
year's committee will send all professors
-whp'gsi a substantial nvtmBcrT-ballots
a letter of recognition.
Seven of the awards (the Tanner

Admiral Elmo Zumwalt,cnief of naval operations until his
retirement last June, suggested Thursday night that Israel be
made a dominion of the United States as one possible
solution to the Middle East crisis.
"I believe that forces could be stationed in parts of Israel to
ensure that they were neither invaded nor did they invade,"
He suggested Israel's status could be similar to Puerto
Rico's relation to the United States.
Zumwalt made this suggestion during the question and
answer section of his speech in Hill Hall sponsored by
the Curriculum in Peace, War and Defense and the Carolina
In his speech, Zumwalt said the United States must be
prepared to yield to Soviet foreign excesses in the future.
He said that because of American economic instability and
military unpreparedness, the Soviets "will misbehave
whenever they feel they can get away with it."
The current detente, he said, is a Soviet tactic to expand its
navy and strategic arms in preparation for world domination
bv the 1980s. The Soviets are far enough ahead of the United

would "probably be us."
Zumwalt, who is currently writing a book and has been
mentioned as a possible candidate for the U.S. Senate from
Virginia in 1978, was an assistant professor of naval science
at UNC from 1948 to 50.
In 1970, at age 49, Zumwalt became the youngest admiral
and chief of naval operations in U.S. naval history.
Zumwalt said the Soviets want revenge for their
embarrassment in the 1962 Cuban missile crisis.
At that time, he said, the United States and the Soviets
"stood eye-to-eye until the Soviets blinked." Since then, he
said, the Soviets have embarked on a strategic arms
expansion which has given them a 60 per cent advantage in
land-based missiles, a 33 per cent advantage in sea-based
missiles and a 34 per cent advantage in strategic submarines.
The Strategic Arms Limitations Talks and former
President Nixon's inability to negotiate because of the
Watergate affair have given the Soviets a still greater
advantage, he said.
In order to keep up with the Soviets, Ziunwalt stressed the
need for the United States to keep its navy strong, saying,
"There is no way for the U.S. to survive if it cannot use the

Affirmative Action desegregation
"ineffective and stale," Student
Government President Marcus Williams
told the UNC Board of Trustees Friday.
Williams is an ex officio member of the
Board of Trustees.
After two proposals made by Williams for
change in the desegregation plan failed to
receive even a second, Williams said that the
board has not learned from past experience.
"When black students have protested
against (Ku Klux Klan Information
Director) David Duke, Chancellor Taylor
said it was a learning experience," Williams
told the board. "Maybe the campus has
learned a lesson, but the Board of Trustees
Boston abortion trial
labeled as 'witchhunt'
by Richard Gaines
United Press International
BOSTON Dr. Kenneth C. Edelin,
convicted of manslaughter in an abortion
operation, said Sunday racial and religious
prejudice made a fair trial in Boston
"It was a witchhunt," the 36-year-pld
black obstetrician said the day after an all
white, nine-man, three-woman,
predominently Roman Catholic jury
returned a guilty verdict ending his six-week
"A lot came together for them (the
prosecution) in my case," he said in an
interview. They got a black physician and
Wey got a woman more than 20 week-
pregnant and they got a fetus in the
Edelin, former chief resident obstetrician
at Boston City Hospital, and his attorney
and friend William Homans said they
believed intially Judge James P. McGuire's
charge to the jury would insure an innocent
verdict. The judge told the jury
tickets were distributed.
"All the other candidates represent special
interest groups such as the Association of
Women Students and the Black Student
Movement. I hope to represent the whole
student body," Edwards said.
Edwards did say that he wanted to dispel
slurs against parachutists. He said he did not
agree that "the only thing that falls out of the
sky are fools and bird shit."
Edwards believes platforms are useless
and that "my lack of participation in Student
Government is an advantage as far as I'm
The main purpose of his campaign.
Edwards said, would be his own enjoyment.
"1 plan to go to parties and seek out various
opinions on what students want from
Student Government ... If they want
nothing, I can give them nothing," he said.
He said he hopes there will be many
debates and joint appearances throughout
the campaign. "I would very muck like to
serve the student body," Edwards said. "1

the Vietnam War in order to keep up with the superior Soviet
navy. However, he said, "The odds are quite good that the
Soviets could cut our sea lines in a conventional war."
He said an example of American military ill-preparedness
was the Yom Kippur War in October 1973. When the United
States responded to the crisis by sending ships to the Middle
East, he said, "Soviet aircraft could have flown at us from
four different axes of attack."
At that time, he said, the Soviets delivered an ultimatum:
"If you don't call off the Israelis, we will go in." He said the
United States found itself in a position similiar to the Soviets'
position in the Cuban missile crisis. "We went on alert and
agreed to do what they said."
H e said the Soviets will continue to flex their muscles in the
Middle East in the future because "they see a long-term
strategic objective at hand (opening the Suez Canal)."
At his reception in the Union, Zumwalt temporarily
quelled rumors that he would be running for the Senate in
"Nineteen seventy-eight is so far in the future, I'm not even
sure I'll get there," he said.
He said he had been approached by several of his friends
who have asked him to run against Sen. William Scott, R-Va.
"Thus far this University hasn't
demonstrated any affirmative action."
Williams said. "Turning down these
proposals will be seen by students as just
another stale act in desegregation."
Williams proposed that the board create
two positions on the Affirmative Action staff
for law students "to help with the paperwork
that is weighing down the Affirmative
Action officer." Douglass Hunt, vice
chancellor of administration, is the
Affirmative Action officer for this campus.
The second proposal made by Williams
called for the creation of an office of
coordinator for the entire Affirmative
Action program in UNCs 16-campus
Affirmative Action is the plan for
desegregation at UNC accepted by the

"person," which he defined as an infant born
live and outside the womb.

support their case since the prosecution
throughout the trial claimed Edelin killed a
baby which was "born or in the process of
"After the charge we were very optimistic
and in a light frame of mind because the
charge was so specific and so great and
supported our theory of the law," Edelin

the faces of the jurors early , Saturday

Homans and Edelin expressed
admiration for two jurors an unmarried
bank teller who was the lone holdout against
conviction and the alternate Michael Ciano
who charged after the verdict that racial
slurs against Edelin had been made more
than once before closing arguments.
Edelin said he was proud that his defense
was an attempt to win "strictly on the basis of
the facts" and contrasted Homans' case to
that of Assistant District Attorney Newman
"Flanagan's strategy will be adopted by
prosecutors across the country wherever
strong anti-abortion sentiment exists and
wherever officials are sensitive to it."

to increase the percentage of women and
minority members on the staff and faculty.
Before Affirmative Action was accepted by
HEW, two other desegregation plans were
Williams, however, is not satisfied with
the current plan. "In 1953 the first black
student was admitted here." Williams said
after the meeting. "In 20 years the black
student population has grown to 6 per cent,
but only 2 per cent of the faculty (36
instructors) are black. I'm not satisfied."
Williams explained how his proposal
would have impoved the desegregation plan.
"The Affirmative Action officer here (Hunt)
doesn't have time to devote to Affirmative
Action because of his administrative duties."
Williams said in an interview after the
meeting. ' "The two law student assistants
would have freed Hunt to work more on
' One thing that has been neglected because'
of Hunt's lack of time. Williams believes, is
communication. "Dialogue between the
administration and minority students has
been reactionary and far from constant."
Williams said. "Presently, information
about what's being done by Affirmative
Action is handed down in bits and pieces to
Hunt, who was present at the Trustees
meeting, was not asked by the board whether
or not he needed the extra help proposed by
Williams' proposal that there be one
official overseeing the 16 Affirmative Action
officers at North Carolina colleges was met
with little enthusiasm by board members.
"Each of the 16 North Carolina colleges
has its own Affirmative Action officer."
Wilkinson told the Board. "And each of
these institutions is individually capable of
hiring minorities. 1 don't see how they could
benefit by having one official over them."
Williams, however, said the potential for
such a position was enormous. "An
exchange program could be developed."
Williams said. "A listing of all potential
and female instructors could be kept track
Both of Williams' proposals did not come
to a vote because they were not seconded by
another board member.
In other board action, Williams was
commended by Chancellor N. Fere bee
Taylor for his service on the Board of
Trustees. Friday was the last meeting

before the campus elections.
