'Capitalist pigs' warned
By ANNETTE MILLER
"Crime prevention starts in the high chair and not in
the electric chair."
J. Edgar Hoover, former FBI director.
Hoover's message crackled over the loudspeaker, a
blue light flashed and a crowd of curious onlookers
gathered around the ominous black trailer outside
They were looking at "Jail On Wheels," an exhibit
that travels across the United States 10 months a year
showing law enforcement paraphernalia that "provide a
constant reminder of what awaits those who would take
the law into their own hands," an exhibit handout says.
The display, in Chapel H ill until Sunday, is sponsored
by the J. Edward Slavin Foundation in Clinton, Conn,
and funded by viewers donations.
"Children are the main reason for the exhibit," said
Bob Sharp, one of three policemen traveling with the
J. Edward Slavin, a late sheriff of Connecticut's New
Haven County, originated the exhibit in 1947 to deter
would-be juvenile delinquents. Ninety percent of all
criminals have records starting in juvenile delinquency,
the loudspeaker told the audience.
"You can watch the expressions on the faces of the ,
grammar school children when they go through the
exhibit. It has an effect," Sharp said..
Inside the trailer, dozens of police badges from
Honolulu to Peoria, 111., decorated the wall. To the right
was a cold, bare jail cell, approximately half the size of a

A display of confiscated weapons, fingerprint
equipment, "bug" detectors, a breath analyzer, radar, a
lie detector, tear gas riot-dispersing equipment and
bullet-proof vests lined the left side of the trailer.
In the center, leg irons, hand cuffs and thumb cuffs
gave a tinge of irony to Sharp's comment that the exhibit
is a crime prevention place, not a torture chamber. -
"What is that?" a little boy asked, pointing to a life
size electric chair beside a model of a gas chamber.
"That's to kill people who are bad," the man with him

Free beer, live entertainment, fun and
games, and a large crowd will come together
April 17 at Ehringhaus field for the eighth
annual Alpha Phi Omega Campus Chest
The carnival, to be held from 7 p.m. to
midnight, is a cooperative event coordinated
by APO, the lnterfraternity Council, the
Panhellenic Council and various residence
halls, said Jeff Cheek, chief organizer of the
"We've contacted all the fraternities and
sororities and are in the process of contacting
all the dorms to set up booths," Cheek said.
"In the past we've had such booths as Beta
Vegas, Egg-A-Pledge, Grit-A-Kappa, a
dunking bopth and various other food and
APO is planning to invite four bands
varying from a rock group to a folk group.
Cheek said.The UNC Jazz Lab Band already
has accepted an invitation to play at the
Cheek said the carnival will be expanded,
this year to involve not only fraternities and
sororities, but other campus organizations as
"We want to make it a campus-wide event
with all organizations participating," he said.
"Thus, in addition to raising funds we're giving
organizations a chance to publicize."
Cheek said APO has received about 60
percent affirmative responses from campus
organizations. The Association of Business
Students, the College Republicans and the
Student Consumer Action Union are among
those groups which will participate
Proceeds from the carnival will go to various
charities including the Campus Y, Chapel H ill
Public Library and the Rape Crisis Center,
"It's our biggest fund-raiser of the year and
by increasing participation, we hope toexpand
the success of the carnival both financially and
informatively." he said.

the arms, legs and center of the chair.
Sharp explained the straps were designed to hold the

body, The person usually dies within seconds, Sharp
"This exhibit is not designed to advocate a position on
capital punishment," Sharp said. "...It's designed to
show what could happen."
But Sharp said he knew of at least one time the exhibit
was effective. A man in Lancaster, Penn., in 1978
brought his four children to the exhibit and told Sharp
that as a teenager the man had seen the exhibit just
before he planned to rob a store. "It changed my life... I
wanted my children to see it," the man told Sharp.

approximately 2:10-3:15 p.m. Tuesday
after an anonymous threat was called in
to the English department.
"Some guy called in and said, 'Unless
you capitalist pigs vacate the premises in
exactly five minutes you will die,"' said
Carolyn Jenkins, secretary for the
department of English.
The caller did not specify how he would
carry out his threat or what organization
he was affiliated with, if any, Jenkins
said. "He could have been a student," she
said. "His voice was very harsh and deep

Five University Police officers were
dispatched to Greenlaw after the call
came in at 1:55 p.m. A search of the

Some classes were inconvenienced

eiden wins third gold
LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP)
American Eric Heiden won the 1,000
meter speed skating event Tuesday, his
third gold medai and third Olympic
record time in the XIII Winter Games.
Heiden, 21, from Madison, Wis., who
previously had won the 500 and 5,000
meters, was timed at 1 minute, 15.18
seconds to surpass fellow American Peter
Mueller's Olympic record of 1:19.32.
Heiden is only the fourth man to win
three speed skating golds. He will try for
an unprecedented fourth in Thursday's
1 ,500 meters and could make it five in the
10,000 meters on Saturday.
Gaetan Boucher of Canada won the
silver medal in the 1 ,000-meter event, and
Frode Roenning of Norway and Vladimir
Lobanov of the Soviet Union tied for the
bronze. Mueller, who won the gold in
1976, was fifth.
Sweden's Ingemar Stenmark, the
world's premier skier but never an
Olympic goal medalist, won the men's
giant slalom. Phil Mahre of Yakima,
Wash., the United States No. 1 hope for a
medal in the event, came in 10th and his
twin brother, Steve, was 13th.
Ulrich Wehling of East Germany won
an unprecedented third straight Olympic
gold in the Nordic Combined event.
Meanwhile, warmer weather, a
decrease in spectators and improved
transportation eased some of the
problems at the Games, but a power
failure just as competition started
hampered some events.
A transformer in the Lake Placid
electrical system failed at about 10 a.m.
while biathlon competition was in
progress and just before the start of the
final run of the men's giant slalom and
finals in speed skating. Emergency
generators restored current at the
biathlon but the electric scoreboard,
public address system and television went
