WASHINGTON In the first major anti
war demonstration here since the Vietnam War,
nearly 30,000 people marched to the Capitol.
Saturday to protest President Jimmy Carter's
proposal for draft registration.
See related story on page 2
Despite cold weather and strong winds, the
crowd size was almost twice that expected by
People of all ages assembled at the Ellipse
near the White House and marched down
Pennsylvania Avenue to the steps of the
Capitol, chanting, "No draft, no war," and "We
won't bleed for Exxon's greed." Most
demonstrators were college and high school
students who had come by bus and car from the
East and Midwest.
Steve Summerford, coordinator of the War
Resisters League Southeast, estimated that at
least 85 Triangle Area residents participated in
the demonstration. More than a dozen anti
draft and civil rights groups, led by the National
Mobilization Against the Draft, organized the
march. Police along the route said the marchers
were peaceful and orderly.
After arriving at the Capitol, the
demonstrators heard speakers, most of whom
denounced the draft and current U.S. foreign
Carter's proposal calls for the registration of
all 19-and 20-year-olds. A House subcommittee
voted against including women in draft
registration. Legislation to finance registration
currently is in both House and Senate
Former Yale University chaplain and anti
war activist the Rev. Sloan Coffin told the
crowd gathered on the Capitol lawn, "The end
of the world for the first time is in our hands and
not God's. I offer a prayer of thanks to all of you
men and women who are going to refuse the
draft and refuse registration. We shall keep on
the long and lonely road for peace and the
struggle for sanity, and we shall prevail."
Peter Yarrow, formerly of the 1960s folk
group Peter, Paul and Mary, said the size of the
crowd showed a renewed interest in peace. He
sang a song written for the demonstration and
led the crowd in singing "Blow in' in the Wind,"
a song made famous during 1960s anti-war
Another speakerw ho had participated in the
'60s anti-war movement, Alan Canfora, said
that the Vietnam War would not be forgotten
and that opposition to war would continue.

From staff reports
How many times must the cannonb alls fly
Before they're forever banned?...
The answer is blowin' in the wind.
WASHINGTON The lawn in front of the
Capitol was transformed Saturday into a sea of
hands raised in the peace sign. The roar of the wind,
amplified by the public address system, did not
drown out the soft chorus of 'Blowin' In the Wind"
sung by thousands of anti-draft demonstrators.
The singing was a moment of unity in an otherwise
disjointed protest of the draft.
Beginning with a late-morning rally on the muddy
Ellipse grounds near the White House, groups with
widely divergent political philosophies gathered to
.oppose the draft and, in many cases, to espouse their
Members of the Communist Youth Brigade,
carrying black and red banners, marched through the
crowds shouting through portable address systems:
"Take your af my , shove it up your ass, we're going to
fight for the working class."
A Buddhist monk stood apart from the crowd,
chanting a message that translated roughly as a wish
for internal and external peace.
Supporters of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy passed
out Kennedy buttons on the condition that those
who took them would wear them.
Anti-nuclear, solar energy,, women's rights, civil
rights and other activist groups used the rally as a
chance to promote their own interests and often to
make some money. Many groups sold literature,
buttons and pennants, sometimes at inflated prices.
Two riot squad officers, sauntering through the
crowd and smiling beneath the raised visors on their
baby-blue riot helmets, said the demonstration

Council asks. for aid study
By GARY TERPENING
The Faculty Council voted Friday to ask
Chancellor Christopher C. Fordham III to
appoint a committee to investigate and explain
disparities between male and female financial
aid at UNC.
After a unanimous voice vote by the council,
Fordham said he was prepared to appoint a
committee comprising chairmen of the Faculty
Council's Committee on the Status of Women
and the committees on the Black Faculty and
the Status of Minorities and the Disadvantaged.
No deadline was set for the committee's
The resolution passed by the council was a
substitute for the first of 10 resolutions
proposed by the Committee on the Status of
Women for adoption by the Faculty Council.
The original first resolution directed the Office
of Student Aid to conduct the financial aid
Director of Student Aid William M. Geer
said no investigation was needed because
records held in the University's Office of
Institutional Research show the sources which
have created disparities in financial aid awards.
"The question is what we're going to do about
it," Geer said.
Committee member Anne Dellinger said an
investigation into why the disparities exist is
necessary. "No one can deny that disparities
exist," Dellinger siad. "We just want someone to
step back and look at the policies leading to the

In a closed meeting Friday the UNC Board of
Trustees denied a female geology professor's appeal
to have her denial of tenure reconsidered.
Judith B. Moody asked the Trustees to reconsider
her tenure denial because she has charged that the
department of geology exhibited sex discrimination
and personal malice when it decided to deny her
Moody said Sunday she would appeal the
Trustees' decision to the UNC Board of Governors.
A special Trustees' committee chaired by John A.
Tate of Davidson heard Moody's charges Thursday
and made recommendations to the full board Friday.
The committee decided the geology department did
not exhibit sex discrimination and personal malice in
its decision and thus recommended Moody's appeal
The committee was the second such committee to
be formed to hear a tenure denial. The first
committee was formed last fall to review Sonja B.
Stone's denial of tenure.
Moody charged Sunday the committee did not
allow her the same procedureal benefits allowed to
Stone, the former co-director of the Afro
American and African Studies curriculums, was
permitted to have outside witnesses speak at her
hearing and Moody was not, she said.
M oody also said there was a difference in the levels
of proof the two women were required to show. "I
had to prove my charges to a substantial certainty,
while Stone was allowed to argue her case with the
reasonable doubt standard," Moody said.
Tate said Sunday the committee made its decision
based on the guidelines for the tenure appeals
To appeal a denial of tenure a faculty member
must prove that he or she was denied free speech,
disciminated against because of race, sex, religion or
national origin or shown personal malice.
Moody has criticized this process because it allows
only the department to review the merits of a faculty
The tenure appeals process currently is under
review by another special committee of trustees.
Moody, the first woman hired as an assistant
professor in the geology department and the first
woman to come up for tenure in that department,
said she was denied tenure because she was assessed
as inadequate in teaching, even though she was
judged as excellent to outstanding in research and
According to 1976 and 1979 Carolina Course
Review, Moody was given low ratings on teaching by
students in her Geology 1 1 classes.
MEW claims UNC
By JIM HUMMEL
Staff W riter
A ruling issued last week by the
Department of Health, Education and
Welfare Reviewing Authority could open
"""another avenue for HEW in its attempt to
cut off federal funding to the University.
The reviewing authority, a panel of five
lawyers appointed by the II EW secretary,
said Administrative Law Judge Lewis F.
Parker has the jurisdiction to hear a
charge by HEW that UNC officials
intimidated University employees. Last
year, Parker refused to allow HEW to
use the coercion charge in its case against
"It is my understanding that if HEW
wants to add to its list of charges it may
now do so," UNC Vice President for
Academic Affairs Raymond Dawson
"This is purely a procedural ruling,"
said UNC Presidant William Friday.
"The reviewing authority didn't go into
the merits or substance of the issue. It's
basically a case of jurisdiction."
HEW has filed suit aganist UNC in an
effort to cut off the $90 million it gives the
University annually, claiming the 16
campus system has not complied with
federal guidelines for desegregation.
Last November HEW charged that the
University prevented employes from
testifing in the case, and engaged in a
systematic attempt to intimidate and
coerce the employees. Friday has denied
"The president informed the
chancellors at the 16 campuses that any
employee who wished to testify may do
so," Dawson said. "It is the employee's
"On the advice of our counsel,
however, the University also advised that
any questions HEW asks should be
conducted in the presence of Univesity
counsel. They should be communicating
Friday said he had not seen a copy of
the panel's ruling, but said he thought if
the HEW wished to pursue a line of trying
to prove coercion, the agency would have
to build a totally separate case
According to the ruling, HEW
theoretically could fail to win its
argument over the desegregation dispute
; 2 '.
and still cut off funding by proving the
The panel also ruled that a motion
made by UNC last fall w ill be sent back to
Parker. One involves the questions of
whether HEW can represent all federal
agencies that give the University money.
Last fall, HEW was charged with
requesting the Department of Housing
and Urban Development to withhold
funds for a dormintory at UNC
Charlotte until the HEW case was
decided. The move brought swift
opposition from University officials.
four movie fans

Four moviegoers in Chapel Hill collapsed Friday night as the
result of a mysterious illness that has local health officials
During the 9.30 p.m. showing of All That Jazz at the Varsity
Theater, three men, tw o of them UNC students, blacked out and
had to be carried from the theater.
A fourth victim, a female University student, was stricken w ith
similar symptoms, including a loss of consciousness and
convulsions, several hours after watching American Giola at
the nearby Ram Theaters.
Dr. James McCutchan of the Student Health Service said all
of the victims experienced similar symptoms. The symptoms
included nausea, light-headedness, dizziness and some
convulsions ranging in severity. But McCutchan said he could
not find any other link among the victims.
None of the men stricken with the sudden illness at the Varsity
Theater were sitting together, nor had they eaten at the same
place that night. McCutchan said the woman who attended the
Ram Theaters had a childhood history of blacking out. Her cave
had nothing to do with being in the movie theater, he said.
The Varsity and Ram theaters have different owners. There is
no connection between the suppliers for their concession stands.
"What is notable is that four relatively young people lost
consciousness in one night in movie theaters in Chapel Hill."
It is possible that the men in the Varsity Theater had some type
of reaction to an insecticide that was sprayed in the theater

Thursday morning, he uUl. But the tnvcctcUc that reportedly

not be an improper chemical to uvc in a theater, McCutchan said.
No insecticide had been pracd at the Ram I heater.-
"The event is striking, but no one ha dcmoMratcd that an
insecticide wa the cause." McCutchan said.
Blood sample from the victim were sent to the state health
department for test that might reveal ome hnk among the four.
