Vance on Mideast mission
WASHINGTON (AP) President Carter told
Congress on Monday night he is sending Secretary of
State Cyrus Vance to the Middle East to try to rally
support from Jordan and Saudi Arabia for the Camp
David peace accord.
Carter went before a joint session of Congress to
report on the agreements he mediated between Israeli
Prime Minister Menachem -Begin and Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat during their 13 days at Camp
David, Md. .
Carter said Vance will leave today for talks with
Jordan's King Hussein and King Khalid of Saudi
Arabia. He said Vance's goal is "to secure their support
for the realization of the new hopes and dreams of the
people of the Middle East." -
Carter's speech wound up a day in which the
administration began a diplomatic and political
offensive in support of the fragile Mideast agreement,
signed in a White House ceremony Sunday night.
The president had the firm support of both Begin and
Sadat, who were seated on either side of Rosalynn
Carter in the visitors gallery of the House of
Representatives as Carter spoke.
For his part, Begin announced he had won a U.S.
promise to build Israel two new air bases in the Negev
Desert to replace those in the Sinai being returned to
Egyptian control. .. .
Begin also said Israel plans to maintain a military"
presence on the West Bank, even after the five-year
transition toward Palestinian autonomy in the region.
U.S. officials confirmed that the agreement would allow
6,000 Israeli soldiers to remain on the West Bank but
away from population centers.
Asked whether Israeli troops might remain on the
West Bank for five, 10 or 15 years. Begin replied: "Yes,
why not? Yes, possibly."
He said Israel wants a peace settlement with Jordan,
Syria and Lebanon. The idea is not to have one separate
peace treaty between Israel and Egypt but to reach a
comprehensive peace settlement," he said.
In his nationally televised address, Carter said that if
expectations are realized therecould be peace between
Egypt and a free Jewish nation of Israel for the first time
in more than 2,000 years. .
"The world prayed for the success of our efforts, and
those prayers have been answered," the president said.
The support of Jordan and Saudi Arabia are
considered vital to the outcome of the U.S.-led peace
One of the two agreements negotiated at Camp David
envisions Jordan playing a prominent role in shaping a
negotiated settlement for the West Bank of the Jordan
River. But King Hussein has made no statement on the
accords, saying he wants to study them first.
From the start, the United States, Egypt and Israel
have tried to get Hussein to join in peace talks. He has
held out for a commitment from Israel to withdraw from
the West Bank. That territory was controlled by Jordan
from 1948 to 1967; when it was lost to Israel in the Six
Begin and Sadat were given lengthy applause by
members of the House and Senate when they were
introduced by Carter. Both men had spent the day
explaining their positions on the Camp David accord to
their own people.
Apparently in disagreement with concessions that
Sadat made at Camp David, Egyptian Foreign Minister
Mohammed Kamel resigned, just as his predecessor,
Ismail Fahmy, had done last year to protest the Egyptian
president's historic peace overture to Israel. :
Sadat said he met with Kamel on Monday morning
and accepted his resignation as of Friday. "We are a
democracy," Sadat said. "He will not be put in prison or
a concentration camp because he differed in opinion
with me. Everyone is entitled to his own opinion."
The Camp David agreement showed signs of strain
when Begin told Israeli reporters that Israel did not
consider itself bound to forego establishing further
settlements on the West Bank.
A senior American official, briefing reporters on
terms of the agreement, said Israel was prohibited from
setting up new settlements for at least five years. Beyond
that period, the agreement is silent.
The official, who asked not to be named, said that
after all the terms of the agreement are examined, other
Arab countries will recognize that Sadat achieved
"many of the long-desired objectives of the Arab world."
At a briefing for 75 members of Congress in the East
Room of the White House, the president said the 13-day
summit meeting which ended with signing of the peace
framework Sunday night was "one of the most historic

UNC is rejecting applications from

554 black applicants were accepted at
UNC in 1974. In 1978, 706 black students
applied and 424 were accepted.

students in 1978 than in 1974 even though
they had more applicants to choose
from," Renwick said. "It doesn't matter

"When the University uses this word
'qualified' they mean different things. The
standards are relaxed for the children of
alumni or for athletes. Even if the
children of alumni are from another state,
they're treated just like in-state students.
"I've never said that concessions
shouldn't be made for athletes or students
with special talents. But I think we also
have a great need for more black
students. My complaint is that if we can
make concessions for other cases, why
not make them for black studentsr too?"
Enrollment statistics show that
approximately 300 black students have
been denied admission during the past
three years. Renwick said he attempted to
get further documentation by reviewing
rejected applications, but was denied

Students may trade parking permits with others
By MARTHA WAGGONER
For the first time in the history of University parking,
students wishing to make a one-on-one parking sticker
switch may do so.
The new policy goes into effect today. ,
The switch must take place between two persons who
have parking stickers; said Cindy Mayes, motor vehicle
registration supervisor. The students wishing to trade
should come to the Traffic Office together between 8
a.iu. and t p.m. any weekday with their parking slickers.
"It's important to emphasize that the only way to
trade stickers is by coming to the Traffic Office," Mayes
said. "Trading stickers without coming by here could
result in a $50 fine."
Mayes said the decision to hold the exchanges came in
response to the number of people calling and
complaining about the sticker they received. "We have
to go by the Student Government transportation bill,
which is four years old and gives preference to grad
students, seniors, juniors and sophomores, in that
order," Mayes said. "By going by the Student
Government's list, 1 had to misplace 250 sophomores."
More students received permits in the first-choice area
this year than ever before, Mayes said. Two thousand
persons pre-registered for parking stickers, also a record
But Mayes said a person wishing to buy rather than
trade a sticker must come in on Tuesdays to see what is
available. "You can't come in here with a person wanting
to sell his sticker and buy it," Mayes said. "That is still
done on Tuesdays on a first-come, first-serve basis."
to deal with family deaths
By SUDIE TAYLOR
Kevin sluggishly answered his
phone early one morning. An
impersonal voice told him his father
had died during the night in intensive
care. Stunned, he sank to his bed.
"Death is the last thing on
someone's mind especially a
student's until he is personally
confronted with it," says Dr. Myron
Liptzin, a psychiatrist at the UNC
Student Mental Health Clinic.
Another student, Debbie, recalled
the loss of her mother. "At first I didn't
want to believe she was dead. I told the
doctor that he must be wrong. She had
to be alive."
Debbie's denial of her mother's
death was the first stage in what Dr.
Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, author oi On
Death and Dying, calls the grief
Anger often follows denial, Kubler
; Ross says. "It seemed so unfair," says
a student whose brother was killed in a
car accident. "I wanted to lash out at
In the grief process, depression can
be the most difficult phase to
overcome, the author says.
"Whenever I thought about my Dad,
especially the little things he used to do
around the house, it made me feel so
down," Kevin recalls.
Responsibilities to the family may
demand the student's attention when a
death occurs. If he is needed at home
but is expected to miss only a few days
of school, a student may be less able to
deal with the loss. His family may lean
on him.. As Kevin- recalls, "With my

isn't easy. "You can't take two weeks
off like a company employee can,"

drop out to support his family. Either v
decision, psychiatrists say, can create
guilt feelings and have other
"A student must realize that it's time
to get on with his life," Liptzin adds.
Students who have suffered the loss
of a loved one say talking it out with
friends and allowing time to ease the
loss prove effective.
But some students cannot arrive,
without professional help, at the last
stage of the grief process acceptance.
Liptzin advises, "If a student
continues feeling depressed, has
disturbing nightmares or unsolved
guilt, he may want to seek counseling
at the Mental Health Clinic.
Reminiscent of '60 s
public radio network

; -State wide public radio has yet to
become a reality in North Carolina,
but measures are underway to study
the medium for possible use,
according to state officials involved
in the project.
We have been asked to study,

pcLDCJK encourages aeuiLTasm
By CAM JOHNSON
Former People's Party presidential candidate Dr.
Benjamin Spock said Sunday that young Americans are
more hesitant to take stands on crucial woridtssuesthan
their predecessors in the 1960s:
Spock made the remark to a Hamilton Hall audience
of 150 in an address sponsored by the UNC Curriculum
in Peace, War and Defense. In his speech Sunday and at
a press conference Monday, Spock attacked the
American government as unjust.
American college students should demonstrate for
what they believe even at the risk of jail, he said.
"AH young people, "especially middle-class kids,
should get arrested at least once for an honorable cause,"
Spock said. "I think young people today are interested
in crucial issues and they're idealistic. But they're much
more practical about not taking stands that would
jeopardize their careers. ,
"One reason they're not active is that after hearing
about the protests of the '60s, they have come to the
conclusion that protest doesn't work," he said.
Spock, convicted in 1968 of conspiring to aid young
people avoiding the draft, said student activisim led to
the end of the Vietnam War.
"Every person who attended any demonstration or
wrote letters to their congressman counted in the end,"
he said. "President Johnson was forced out of office
because he felt so uncomfortable with the dissent against
Spock discounts charges that his book Baby and
Child Care advocated child-rearing practices that led to
the student unrest of the 1960s. The book has sold 28
million copies since 1946.
"Somehow 1 got this reputation as a corrupter of
youth," Spock said. "Critics said when these people
(protestors) were children they were spoiled by demand
feeding. TtriV is ridiculous:"
Spock said his opposition to the government began
during his days as an anti-war activist in the 1960s.
"The government must be run for the benefit of the
people, not the private interests," Spock said. "We
should have a kind of decentralized socialism with
neighborhoods deciding what type of housing and
schools they want.
"I would prefer people live more simply with more
emphasis on the family and community," he said. ,
Spock said American society stresses competition too
heavily. "Our children are taught a highly unnatural
kind of competition where they get ahead.' Human
nature is to be cooperative, to live in a cooperative
society and work on cooperative projects," he said.
Spock said he doubts socialism will become a reality
in the United States.
"College people are more practical minded, and when
they succeed in getting a good job they won't want to
overthrow the system," he added.
"Working-class people are hoodwinked into thinking
if they work hard, they'll get rich too," he said.
Unless Americans recognize the suffering of poor
people in the United States, social unrest will increase in
the future, Spock predicted.
"People have the capacity of ignoring injustice and
danger until the issue is brought to them," he said. "If
they don't become involved, I can see all our serious
wrongs getting worse instead of better."
