PHILADELPHIA (AP) George
Bush defeated Ronald Reagan in the
Pennsylvania presidential primary
election late Tuesday night, and said he
had shown it isn't too late to overtake the
faraway Republican front-runner. Sen.
Edward Kennedy led President Jimmy
Carter in the Democratic primary.
Reagan said that despite Bush's
popular vote victory, he had won a
majority of Pennsylvania's delegates and
moved "even closer" to the nomination.
Nationally, Reagan said he has won "or
can reasonably count on" 90 percent of
the delegates it will take to win the
Kennedy's strategists called
Pennsylvania a must for the senator to
maintain a real chance to overtake the
White House Press Secretary Jody
Powell said he expected a narrow
Kennedy victory. NBC and CBS said
their projections showed the
Massachusetts senator the victor, but
CBS later withdrew its projection, calling
it a "cliffhanger," too close to call.
Robert Strauss, Carter's national
campaign chairman, said it would be "no
great victory" for Kennedy to win
narrowly, adding, "It is very, very, very,
Kennedy was outdistancing Carter by
about 3-to-2 in Philadelphia, where the
challenger had the support of Mayor
William Green. But elsewhere in the state,
Carter had an edge. As a result, the
competition for Democratic nominating
votes loomed as a near standoff that
would maintain Carter's lopsided
national delegate lead.
Strauss claimed Carter would capture
60 of the 77 Democratic delegates at stake
Tuesday in party caucuses in Missouri.
He said that made it "a very good night
for the Carter-Mondale ticket."
Pennsylvania was vital to Bush, the
lone surviving GOP challenger to
Reagan. He trails Reagan by more than
4-to-l in national delegate strength.

Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Donald Boulton
announced Tuesday his decision to extend dorm visitation by
two hours. He did not approve 24-hour visitation, but
recommended that studies on its feasibility be done.
The visitation change, which becomes effective when the
academic year begins in August, is the result of more than two
years of work on proposals by the Residence Hall Association,
University housing and the Housing Advisory Board.
The present visitation policy is noon-1 a.m. Sunday through
Thursday. In the new policy, it will be 10-1 a.m. The Friday and
Saturday policy will be changed from noon-2a.m. to 10-2 a.m.
Boulton said he supported Director of University Housing
James Condie's proposal not to accept the option of 24-hour
visitation because of his concern about incoming freshmen.
"I'm still concerned right now that we've got freshmen coming
in that have no say in it, he said.
"1 think everybody should have the option to say whether they
want to live with 24-hour visitation or not."
Boulton also asked Tuesday that Condie and his staff along,
with the Housing Advisory Board study the feasibility of
discontinuing the freshmen residency requirement. He said if 24
hour visitation were put into effect he did not think freshmen
should have to be required to live in University housing, but he
said he believed a space should be reserved for them if they
Condie said the Housing Advisory Board will be given only
one, issue to address in September the freshmen residency
requirement and its impact on other policies. New members will
be appointed to the board in August, and they will be expected
to make a report on the requirement by Oct. 1.
"We've been talking for about two years about doing away
with the freshman residency requirement," he said. "Once
they're not required to live on campus then we wouldn't have to
deal with saying to the students, you've got to live on campus
and you've got to live in a building with 24-hour visitation.
"We really want to give that serious consideration for the
report on possible implementation for the spring of 1981," he
The study that is to be done on
1 freshmen residency requirement and 24-
-1 , hour visitation could lead to some
s experimental plans with 24-hour
visitation during the spring of 1981.
Students may be able to chose 24-hour
visitation on their housing applications
for the fall of 1981, Condie said.
Each student who will be living in
University housing next year w ill be sent
a notice about the changes in the
visitation policy, he said.
Condie added that if the 24-hour
visitation policy is to be considered
seriously, the importance of the Roommates' Rights Bill must
also be stressed. That bill is a statement of the courtesies that
dorm roommates should give each other. It was developed by
the Residence Hall Association.
"The whole emphasis is on students respecting other students'
rights. We have a bill. What we need is an attitude of students'
room rights. And we need to emphasize that a lot more." Condie
Condie and Boulton agreed that security also would have to
be tightened if 24-hour visitation were made available to
CGC to vote on Finance Committee budget report tonight
By LYNN CASEY
After spending more than 75 hours last week
deliberating over the budgets of 37 student
organizations, the Campus Governing Council
Finance Committee finished its proposed 1980-81
The full council will vote on the proposed
appropriations of student activities fees at its meeting
scheduled ten begin at 6:30 p.m. tonight in 209
Organizations unhappy with the proposed budget
will be lobbying CGC members to amend their
appropriations, council members said Tuesday.
The council will discuss the proposed allocations
for each of the 29 organizations which received
funding before it votes on the entire bill. The eight
organizations which were denied Student
Government appropriations can still lobby CGC
members to amend the budget and fund them.
The budget report of the Finance Committee
stated that members followed guidelines during
deliberation which called for:
low priority for salaries which existed solely as an
incentive to work.
no funding for awards and conferences.
funding that is equal to or less than previous
no funding for inflationary increases.
The report also stated that the group was
particularly committed to enhancing the presence of
minority students on campus and was mindful of that
commitment when it considered the budgets of the
Black Student Movement, Carolina Indian Circle,
Need for Equal Education for Disabled Students and
the Association for Women Students.
The following is a list of the proposed
appropriations for each of the 29 organizations. The
organizations are listed in the order in which they will
be deliberated during tonight's meeting.
The Carolina Indian Circle will receive $500 in
Student Government appropriations. The
organization had requested $2,290, but its budget
was reduced to $1,000. The circle now must raise 50
percent of its budget.
The Residence Hall Association was allocated
$4,845, a 27 percent cut from last year's
appropriation. The majority of this cut concerned
RH A's travel expenditures. The Finance Committee
and the CGC Student Affairs Committee
recommended that officer training workshops be
held in the immediate area to reduce traveling costs.
Because the committee said it believed the
majority of the UNC Debate Team's funding should
come from the administration, the team was
allocated $2,500 29 percent less in Student
Government appropriations than last year's funding.
The Individual Events Team was allotted $2,000.
The Carolina Gay Association w as allotted $708 of
student activities fees, 97 percent of last year's
The committee refused to fund expenditures for 12
alternate delegates to attend the annual legislative
session of the North Carolina Student Legislature. It
appropriated $1,083 to the NCSL.
The Phi Eta Sigma Course Review was allocated
$1,435, an $85 increase over last year's
NEEDS was allocated $380 of its $811 request.
The Fine Arts Festival was allocated $8, 245 only
65 percent of its allocation for last year.
ECOS was allotted $295, slightly less than last
The BSM was allotted $8,770, a three percent
decrease from last year's allocations.

U.S. allies promise sanctions
The Associated Press
America's European allies on Tuesday ordered immediate
reduction in their diplomatic staffs in Iran and said they would
impose economic sanctions unless "decisive progress" is made
by mid-May toward freeing the American hostages in Tehran.
Iran threatened to stop oil exports to countries that join the U .S.
sanctions and took steps to move closer to the Soviet bloc.

Foreign ministers of the European Common Market
countries reached their decision at the end of a two-day meeting
in Luxembourg. In a statement, they said "decisive progress"
toward release of the hostages would have to be made to stop the
trade sanctions. The phrase was not defined.
Conference officials said if the initial steps by the Common
Market members fail to win the release of the hostages, trade
sanctions banning exports of all materials except vital medical
supplies would be activated' in mid-May when the foreign
ministers are scheduled to meet again in Milan, Italy.
In addition to economic sanctions, the officials said, the
Common Market would agree not to buy Iranian oil selling
above the current OPEC price. Iran now supplies about 5.5
percent of Common Market oil.
Meanwhile, western sources said Tuesday that Soviet bloc
countries were ready to help Iran with food, medicine,
manufactured goods and a market for oil if Western Europe
joins the United States in trade sanctions.

Soviet Union has given Iran permission to use Russian roads to

drafted between the two countries, he was quoted as saying.

Grant to aid low-income families
By C INDY BOWERS
Staff W riter
Chapel Hill's program for spending its
$2.1 million community development
grant will give low-income families an
advantage in the competition with
University students for affordable
housing, local housing officials said
"We have carefully written into the
document some safeguards to avoid (low
income families being moved out)," said
Ted Parrish, chairman of the Chapel Hill
Housing Authority Commission.
The three-year federal grant program
outlines plans lor improving existing
houses and for constructing new low-cost
housing. Under the program, landlords
who receive funding are required to make
a 15-year commitment to rent their units
only to low- to moderate-income tenants,
Parrish said. Most students would not
qualify to live in the housing under those
standards, he said.
Alvin Stevenson, director of the
Chapel Hill Housing Authority, said the
requirement should help keep some
housing available for low-income
families even if the town's housingcrunch
"We think it will have a positive effect
on curbing the problem," Stevenson said.
In recent years, Chapel Hill officials
have expressed concern that University
students were forcing low-income
families out of town neighborhoods. The
problem, of displacement of low-income
tenants was studied in 1978 by UNC
professor M ichael Stegman and a team of
Stegman's study showed that as a result
of the scarcity of low-cost rental units in
Chapel Hill, University students had
begun moving into areas that
traditionally had been low-income
neighborhoods. The Northside and Pine
Knolls areas, in the western section of
Chapel Hill, particularly were hit hard by
the displacement trend, the study found.
Most of the town's community
development money is earmarked for
expenditure in these areas.
Parrish said students hold a distinct
advantage over low-income families in
the housing battle.
"They can out do low- to moderate
income families in the terms of fighting
for existing units," Parrish said. "They
can double up, triple up and bid the rent
up beyond what (a family) could pay."
One landlord, who rents her house on
Short Street in the Northside
neighborhood to a group of students, said
she does so because of the financial
benefit. "They pay more than I could
have asked from a family or just one or
"They like (living there) because it's a
good location to the University," the
landlord said. "They have more room
than they could have in the apartment
A student tenant in the Northside area
agreed that the neighborhood's location
was a main reason for living there. "I
wanted to live in closer because last year 1
lived way outside of town," she said.
"With gas going up, it's cheaper, as far
as driving goes, to live here," the student
said. "But the rent is costing me more

Students take Suite C as last resort
By KERRY DKKOC HI
Sixteen armed men identifying themselves as members of
the Old West Liberation Front stormed Suite C of the
Carolina Union Tuesday and took Student Body President
Bob Saunders hostage before proceeding to the Department
of Housing to demand dorm improvements.
"We, the Old West Liberation Front, have taken this suite
in the hopes that this University's bureacracy will now hear
us out," group spokesman Richard Klimicwic said. "We sec
little purpose in tackling the endless circles of 'regular
channels' and have decided that a kick in the soft underbelly
may be just what we need to do to get some quickiction and
Although the weapons used were water pistols, and the 16
armed men were residents of Old West dormitory, dorm
President Bill Robinson said that the issue motivating the
group were far from comical.
Robinson siad that the group had several complaint
concerning dorm maintenance in Old West. He said five exit
doors did not have locks, pipes leaked, sewage fumes and
rats, roaches and termites inhabited the dorm.
"The dorm as filled out maintenance request form that
have been ignored." Robinson said. "We're talking about
people waking up in the morning with rat on their chests.
"The legislature won't rccognie the needs ol salcly doors.
People can walk in off the streets anywhere they want." he
After listening to the group's demands. Russell IVnv.
assistant director of operations, said that although the dorm
residents had been trying for five years to receive single doors
for every exit in both Old Fast and Old West, the proposal
would have to be passes by the U.S Congress because tlie
dorms arc national historical shtincs.
"There is a sincere desire to keep the buildings as it was on tlie
outside," Perry said. "We even offered to design a single door
that looks like the doors do now, with a strip down the
middle, but the appearance commission laid 'no'."
Robinson said that the dorms would have double doors
iastalled with crash bars so that when they were locked at
night, people could exit tlic building but could not reenter
without a key. The door would also have a weather strip
between the doors to help block the wind.
"It's official and will be done this summer, Wc wanted
single doors for convenience -sou have to gel a large pia in
sideways in double door but wc ran into too many people
agaiast it." Perry said.
Mike Jones, assistant residence director of Old West said
he felt the new doors were a compromise, but he was glaJ of
"It's an improvement and Irn glad wc got it." Jones said.
"It will hopefully cut down Units and the amount of people
coming in off the streets."
Perry said thdt the sewer pipe that run under Old West
should be replaced because of the leakage problems. He also
said that the dorms would be further treated to exterminate
"in this area of the country sou can never get nd ol bugs
you control them." Pcrr said
