NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) Ethiopian infantry forces backed ,
by combat aircraft invaded northwestern Somalia early
Wednesday and fighting was in progress along a 27-mils front,
Somalia's Defense Ministry claimed. " -
The announcement, distributed in neighboring Kenya by
Somalia's national news agency, said the invasion started
shortly before dawn when Ethiopian infantry units crossed the
border and Ethiopian warplanes bombed at least five towns in
the northwestern region of the northeast African country.
The Somali claims could not be immediately confirmed by
independent sources. f
In Washington, government officials were initially skeptical
about the size of the military operation, saying reports of
fighting had been received but nothing of the magnitude being
reported by Somalia. .. ;.
The Somali ambassador to the United States, Abdullahi
Ahmed Addou, reported the invasion to the State Department
at midday Wednesday.
Ethiopia, with the aid of Soviet advisers and Cuban troops,
defeated Somalia in a war over eastern . Ethiopia's Ogaden
desert region last year. At that time, regular Somali troops
fought alongside ethnic Somali guerrillas who were seeking to
unite the Ogaden with Somalia.
Since then, the guerrillas have continued a hit-and-run war
against the Ethiopians, and Ethiopia has charged Somalia was
still infiltrating troops into the desolate region. Somalia has
long claimed the Ogaden region. .
Ethiopia said earlier this month its patience was wearing thin
over fighting in the Ogaden. It accused Somalia of having
regular military forces in the territory and warned of possible
Western diplomatic sources in Mogadishu, the Somali
capital, said recently there was evidence of an Ethiopian army
buildup at Jijga, a tank base located about 60 miles west of the

frontier to-strike at possible rebel base camps inside Somali

The Somali announcement distributed in Nairobi said, "At
5:30 this morning," 10:30 p.m. EDT Tuesday, Abyssfciisn
. (Ethiopian) forces launched a land and air invasion against the
"northwest region of the Somali Democratic Republic. "The
infrantry invasion forces crossed the border along a ... front
stretching between the towns of Kalabayd and Borama."
That would put the fighting about 40 miles from the
provincial capital of Hargeisa.
The communique said Somali military forces countered the
attack and inflicted heavy losses on the Ethiopians, but
fighting was still in progress.

For the second time this year, - Southern Bell
Telephone and Telegraph Co. has notified the N.C.
Utilities Commission that it plans to apply for a rate
increase, and for the second time this year, Student
Government and the Residence Hall Association are
making plans to fight it.
"We feel like Chapel Hill should petition for
special consideration in regard to installation
charges because of our special case," Student Body
President Bob Saunders said..." Any type of increase
in the basic rate should suggest an increase in the
Southern Bell plans to present the new increase to
the Utilities. Commission by Sept; 2, and it also
plans to meet with Student Government and RHA
on Sept. 8, to explain why the increase is needed.
The most recent increase went into effect on
If Student Government and RHA decide the
increase is too high or unnecessary, they plan to
distribute petitions protesting the increase and go
before the commission as they did last year.
After the groups presented a petition with 5,000
signatures to the commission last year, it rejected
Southern Bell's request and eventually approved an
increase that was only 56 percent of the amount
Southern Bell's installation fee is $15.20 if
students turn in connect cards in their dorms and
$18.20 if they go through the Southern Bell office.
The monthly service fee is $7.90.
"The phones are already installed and all it takes
is a flip of the switch (in dorms)," Saunders said.
"First of all we need to see the rate proposal, but
given the past history of Southern Ball rate
increases, I don't think the students will agree that
an increase is justified."
Any increase Southern Bell makes will conform
with national anti-inflation guidelines said Bob
Jackson, public relations manager for the
Charlotte-based company. It's a situation that
almost all businesses find themselves in today," he
said. "We are simply riot immune to iniiaticn."
He said it is hard to tell when the proposed
increase might take effect, because the Utilities
Commision has 270 days after it receives the request
to rale on it. It may make its ruling anytime during
"Students should be an exception to the rule,"
said Peggy Leight, RHA president. "The turnover
rate is every year (for students), or if students come
to summer school it's more; therefore they
(Southern Bell) are getting a lot more money off this
"I don't think that students should have to p3y
every single year to have their phone connected,"
Some members of RHA have suggested that
UNC look into using a University-owned phone
system again, she said.
Until April 1, 1977, the University owned
electricity, water and telephone utility systems. The
UNC Board of Trustees unanimously agreed to sell
them for $41.5 million because they had become
difficult to operate.

The results of the May N. C. Certified Public
Accountant Examinatin show that the percentage
of UNC-Chapel Hill students who passed the
examination has decreased markedly since last year
and that the University made a poorer showing than
several state schools. - .
Only 36.2 percent of the UNC students who
attempted the exam last May passed, a 16 percent
decrease from the May 1979 exam. Chapel Hill's
passing percentage was second only to Wake Forest
University's in 1979, but this year the University
falls seventh behind UNC-Charlotte, N. C. State
University, Wake Forest University, Duke
University, UNC-Greensboro, and Elon College.
Harold Q. Langenderfer, a UNC accounting
professor, attributed the decline to the inflated
student-faculty ration in the UNC School of
"The class sizes are too large, and we don't have
enough faculty members," he said. "We've had to
use too many graduate students teaching classes.

Walking back from the library late
one night with your best friend by your
side, you realize that someone is
stealthily stalking you. A contract is
out cn your life and this may be your
assassin. A shot is fired. The hit is a
But relax. It is all just part of a
fantasy murder scheme that is
becoming a fad on some of the
nation's university campuses. KAOS
(Killer as An Organized Sport), a game
involving contract "killings," has
arrived at Carolina.
KAOS originated about five years
ego at the University of Michigan
under the name of Killer. The
University of Florida adopted the
name KAOS and the sport was
exported to UCLA.
Although contract "hits" have yet
to begin in Chpd Hill, a mild
mannered biology major is organizing
a AVI OS Chapter at UNC.
Senior Bob Whitehead, president of
KAOS Centra!, transferred from the
University of Mlch::,an last year and
tlthough aware cf Killer, he has never
been involved personally in the game.

Drive-in facilities in Chapel Hill will remain restricted to
sefvice stations and car washes as a result cf a 3-2 vote Tuesday
night by the Chapel Hill Planning Board.
The meeting was called by the Town Council to discuss
action on two special use permit requests from Town Manager
Gene Shipman, proposing construction of a NCNB branch on
the Chapel Hill-Durham Boulevard and a Wachovia Bank
branch on South Estes Drive. The permit requests seek
approval for the construction and addition of drive-in services
to present facilities.,
The Town Council deferred action on these requests at its
Monday meeting and handed them to the Planning Board as
the sole agenda item for Tuesday's meeting. The board's vote
upheld an April 14 decision which allowed only service stations
and car washes to operate drive-ins.
"This is not the best way to approach the problems
concerning drive-in services," stated board member Audrey
Evarts, who voted in the minority with Roscoe Reeve. Reeve
said, "Absolute prohibition (of drive-in services) will either
fall apart completely or be accepted; we have to deal with the
Because both NCNB and Wachovia had applied for drive-in
permits prior to the April 14 decision, some Town Council
members foresaw problems concerning equity in the denial of
all drive-in services.
In an attempt to solve the equity problem, the Planning
Board upheld the earlier ruling while passing a fall-back
motion to explore the possibility of excluding banks from the
drive-in services prohibition. The board agreed that if banks
were excluded standards "would have to be developed for the
possible drive-in facilities which would handle problems
relating to traffic, pedestrian safety, energy conservation,
prevention of strip development and avoidance of damage to
the town's appearance. The board also agreed that shopping
centers would be the most feasible locations for drive-in
services in the Chapel Hill area.
The Town Council will meet Sept. 8 to discuss the Planning
Board's recommendations. At this meeting, the council wUl
take action on the drive-in "policy and consider the requests of
the two area banks.
